The Zone 9 bloggers and journalism in Ethiopia

March 26th, 2015

Episode 311 of 1612 episodes

A group of bloggers and journalists calling themselves, Zone 9, are facing court this month charged with crimes under the country's anti-terror laws. Ironically the group named itself after the eight zones in the Kality prison in Addis Ababa, the ninth being the rest of Ethiopia, which they believe has become prison-like. It's a prison they might soon find themselves in. We find out about the case and the broader state of journalism in Ethiopia, which has the second highest number of exiled journalists in the world.
