Dr. Mukwege congratulates the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner Ethiopian PM Abiy Ahmed

I welcome the decision of the Norwegian Nobel Committee to highlight the efforts of the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Mr. Abiy Ahmed Ali, for his engagement in resolving the border conflict with Eritrea that lasted too long, and also for his work with other actors in East and Northeast Africa to support processes of peace and reconciliation in this region.

The successful process between Ethiopia and Eritrea, and other ongoing peace processes in the Horn of Africa, send a message of hope and peace to all of Africa, where too many areas of instability persist, particularly in the Great Lakes region and the Sahel.
