Published

There are speculations that the Ethiopian government in a bid to reduce nationwide exam malpractice has shut down its text messaging service.

This is said to be coming as part of a break in internet access in the country for more than two days now.

Naija News understands that the internet blackout is targeted towards stopping people from examination malpractice, as confirmed by the authorities.

Ethio Telecom, the country’s monopoly internet provider, told BBC Amharic that it has “no mandate” to comment on this issue.
