‘PM Abiy said release Tsege or I resign’


Ethiopian opposition leader, Andargachew Tsege, says he was released from prison after the country’s prime minister threatened to resign.
Andargachew, a co-founder of the Ginbot 7 opposition movement, spent four years in prison after being accused of plotting a coup against the Ethiopian government. He was sentenced to death in 2009.
After being pardoned in May 2018, Andargachew held a 90-minute meeting with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who has introduced a series of reforms since taking office in April.
British passport-holder Andargachew has subsequently re-joined his family in London.
