Muktar Kedir Becomes the New President of the Oromia Region

Our sources reveal Muktar Kedir is the new president of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia.

The former President of the Oromia Regional State, Alemayehu Atomsa, had resigned recently because of illness. His resignation was accepted by the Executive Committee of his party, Oromo Peoples’ Democratic Organization (OPDO).

However, who will succeed him had been a closely guarded secret until now. In the past the late Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi used to assign whomever he preferred as the head of OPDO or the Oromia Region. Meles Zenawi’s death has made the selection process a bit difficult this time around.
