Ethiopia’s head of Supreme Court, Meaza Ashenafi, has announced her resignation.
Ashenafi, who has held the position since 2018, stated that her decision to step down was due to her belief that the country’s justice system should be completely separate from the government. She also expressed her hope that her resignation will bring about positive changes to the judicial system.
Since taking office, Ashenafi has been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights and rule of law. She has championed a number of groundbreaking initiatives, including the establishment of a new judicial system that is independent of the government.
Ashenafi’s resignation has been met with both praise and criticism. Supporters of the move argue that it will create more trust in the justice system and lead to greater accountability. Critics, however, point out that Ashenafi’s departure could lead to a weakening of the justice system.
It remains to be seen what impact Ashenafi’s resignation will have on Ethiopia’s judicial system, but it is clear that her departure will leave a significant mark.
