Be Careful What You Believe, Says Ethiopia's Prime Minister

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has acknowledged widespread rumors and misinformation online and within local communities and urged people to think carefully when presented with information that could be ideologically driven, according to VOA.

"It is important that Ethiopians deal with this with a calm spirit, and when some information comes, take their time to analyze it, and think about it and verify it, after asking questions about where the information comes from," Abiy said.
