Ethiopia Replaces Central Bank Chief Dessie Amid Inflation (News Central TV)

As the nation struggles with high inflation rates, the head of Ethiopia‘s central bank Yinager Dessie has been sacked.

2018 saw the appointment of Dessie as governor of the National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE), shortly after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed took office.

Mamo Mihretu, who once advised the PM on economic matters and later oversaw Ethiopian Investment Holdings, a sovereign wealth fund that has significant state-owned companies like Ethiopian Airlines and Ethio Telecom in its portfolio, has taken his place.

The birr, the nation’s currency, was devalued against the dollar during the time of the outgoing governor, as was a high rate of inflation. Since 2020, annual inflation has stayed above 20%, peaking at over 33% in 2018.
