KAMPALA – The Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has congratulated Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali, the Ethiopian Prime Minister upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize 2019.
Mr. Ali has been selected for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and in particular, for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea, a statement from the Committee said. The prize is also meant to recognise all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.
Uganda’s influential legislator says that Mr. Ali has done a lot to promote peace, solidarity and social justice at only 43 years of age.
“I join Africa and the world in congratulating Ethiopian Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali for winning the Nobel Peace Prize, 2019. We thank him for all he has done to promote peace, solidarity and social justice,” said Bobi Wine in a statement.
He added that with only 2 years in power, the PM has done an incredible job to reform his country and the region for the better.
“The young breed of African leaders are very proud of him and definitely inspired by him. He is a testimony that new blood needs to be infused into our broken systems from time to time if we are going to break the inertia and make true progress,” revealed the motivated legislator.
Abiy had hosted several African leaders who include Presidents Museveni of Uganda, Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Salva Kiir of South Sudan and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok of Sudan at the official inauguration of the Unity Park, found in the restored National Palace, in the heart of Addis.
