Deputy Head of Mission, Ababi Demissie, completes his tour of duty
Deputy Head of Mission, Ambassador Ababi Demissie, completed his tour of duty in the United Kingdom on 7th August.
Speaking at his farewell gathering at the Embassy, Ambassador Ababi thanked all staff and diplomats for their support and dedication to the people and government of Ethiopia.
In a message of thanks to the Ethiopian community in the UK and friends of Ethiopia, Mr Demissie said:
“Since I took up my post here in August 2016, the support from the diaspora and friends of Ethiopia has been exemplary and we have worked together for a common cause and achieved a lot, especially after the new government took over.”
“The sense of ownership from the diaspora has been unbelievable, particularly their contribution to the global virtual campaign which gave clear and unstinting support to completing the construction of the GERD, and in fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. This brought the diaspora together in their drive to contribute to their home country’s social and economic development process. I look forward to following your progress, keeping up the momentum, contributing to your motherland.”
Ms Roza Yerukneh, Head of Diaspora Affairs, will now act as Charge d’Affaires a.i. until the arrival of the incoming Ambassador, H.E. Teferi Melesse.
In July, the Embassy also bid farewell to Mr Zerihun Abebe, Head of Political Affairs, who will transfer to the Ethiopian Embassy in the Sudan.
Today we bid farewell to one of our esteemed diplomats, Zerihun Abebe, who is departing post for transfer to our mission in Sudan.
