The United States embassy in Ethiopia has closed its doors today (September 19) over what it said was an abundance of caution in the light of large scale demonstrations expected in Addis Ababa.

The embassy subsequently announced a cancellation of all services and appointments asking the public to reschedule their appointments via the website.



“Americans requiring emergency assistance should visit the U.S. Embassy website for contact information. Additionally, the American Center in Addis Ababa and the Satchmo Center at the U.S. Embassy will be closed tomorrow.

“We encourage all those involved in the demonstrations to express themselves peacefully.

Ethiopians online questioned the basis of the Embassy’s information about a protest to which they issued a response on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, state-run Fana Broadcasting Corporate has reported that there were no protests planned for the capital as alleged by the Embassy.

In one area of the north-east territories bordering Ethiopia and Somalia, the census indicates a decrease in the population, prompting local political leaders looking to retain funding for their provinces to question the veracity of the survey
