Ethiopia regional officials sacked after violence

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is under pressure to quell the violence

At least 40 regional government officials in Ethiopia's western state of Benishangul-Gumuz have been sacked following a wave of ethnic-related violence, the ruling Prosperity Party (PP) has said.

Ten of the officials are now under investigation, it added, without giving further details.

Five districts in the state have been put under military control to contain the violence that left dozens dead and hundreds displaced last week.

The government-linked Ethiopian Human Rights Commission said it was deeply alarmed by the violence, which targeted civilians.

In a pre-dawn attack on Friday, at least 15 people, including four women, were killed. Attacks earlier in the month left 30 people dead, although activists say the number could be as high as 80.

Most of the victims in the attacks were said to be from the Amhara and Agew ethnic groups.

It is not clear who the perpetrators were.

On Sunday, the authorities from Amhara state accused officials in Benishangul-Gumuz of not doing enough to prevent the violence.

The Amhara state spokesperson added that his region’s government was "running out of patience".

There is concern about the increasing ethnic-related violence in Ethiopia. It is seen as one of the most pressing challenges for Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize winner Abiy Ahmed.

Tundu Lissu has been accused of threatening national security

Tanzania’s main opposition presidential candidate, Tundu Lissu, has been summoned to appear before the National Electoral Commission's ethics committee on Tuesday after he alleged that President John Magufuli had convened a meeting with district executive directors to discuss rigging October's election.

Senior election official Wilson Mahere said the allegation was meant to paint a picture that the poll would not be conducted in a free and fair atmosphere.

The registrar of political parties has also written a letter to Mr Lissu's Chadema party, saying his remarks posed a threat to national security.

District executive directors are required by law to act as constituency returning officers during the election. The government has denied Mr Lissu's allegation.
