Mediators from African Union, AU and the United States have been working for both parties to ceasefire. But Ethiopian government have declared Tigray forces and its allies as a terrorist group.
“As Africans, it has never been more imperative we take back the narrative about our continent. As Ethiopians, the challenges we face are further compounded by bias. In unity, we need to and we can overturn this” Abiy Ahmed
