Correction: Ethiopia-Nile Dam Story

In a story May 31 about the detention of an Ethiopian journalist, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the writer was "near" the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam when he was reporting on the return of evicted farmers from land. The Committee to Protect Journalists had said he was reporting "in a region" in which the dam is being constructed but Mohamed Keita, CPJ's Africa advocacy coordinator, says at least 100 kilometers (62 miles) separate the site of the dam construction from the site of these evictions. CPJ said it incorrectly identified the reporter as Muluken Tesfahun instead of Muluken Tesfaw. It said Tesfaw since has been released and has said that his arrest was not related to the dam construction.
There is a saying in Amharic "ye jeb chukul qend yinekesla" It amazes us how big institutions covering such a big story makes such error! We strongly feel these institutions are covering Ethiopia with a blind fold and do not care about the truth. Who knows if the main networks were not covering this story it could have been pushed under the rag. They were quick to paint the country in a negative way regardless...  |  BreakNews|   MFA|   Capital|   Fortune|   BBC|   Walta|   ENA|   Reporter|   Tigraionline  VOA Fana  |    Dwoyane | Zefen|   EthioAdvocate
