Congratulations Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize 2019. This is a great development for Africa in the footsteps of another African Nobel Peace prize winner Nelson Mandela. I am glad that the incredible efforts Mr. Abiy Ahmed has been making relentlessly towards peace in the region have finally been globally appreciated.

I was possibly one of the few persons to publicly urge for his recognition when already last year I was stating in the Daily Monitor newspaper of 12th July 2018 suggesting that he be designated African Leader of the Year (Find what I said here: https://www.monitor.co.ug/OpEd/Letters/Name-Ethiopia-s-prime-minister-African-Leader-Year/806314-4658288-view-asAMP-e6fy3tz/index.html)

Again Congratulations!
