Ethiopia beats Botswana to top World Cup qualifying group

Ethiopia stayed top of Group A in their Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifiers after collecting the three points off the visiting Botswana on Sunday.

The Walias left it until late in the game to beat Botswana 1-0 in Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia broke Botswana’s hearts in the 88th minute when striker Getaneh Kebede beat Kabelo Dambe to hand the hosts the three points.

Kebede had only been on the pitch for 42 minutes before his goal after replacing midfielder Adane Girma in the 46th minute.

Meanwhile, victory left Ethiopia still unbeaten in Group A from three games and to collect their second home win in the race to Brazil.

Ethiopia remains unbeaten in Group A on seven points from three games, two more than Bafana Bafana.

Bafana Bafana are second on five points following their 2-0 win over Central Africa Republic just 24 hours earlier in Cape Town.

CAR are third on three points from as many games played.

Meanwhile, Botswana stay rooted at the bottom of Group A with one point from three matches ahead of the reverse fixture against Ethiopia on June 6 in Gaborone.

Victory in Botswana in June for Ethiopia will surely end The Zebra’s interest in the race to potentially turn Group A into a two horse race with Bafana Bafana ahead of their penultimate meeting on June 14 in Addis Ababa.

The then-TPLF-dominated regime in Ethiopia was the first in sub-Saharan Africa to actively engage in political censorship of the Internet .

Since May 2006, the most popular Ethiopian web sites (including CyberEthiopia) and several blogs have been blocked across the nation. The apparent objective was to prevent the dissemination of information that is critical of the regime.

Following the political protests which have swept the nation since November 2015, the regime has routinely shutdown the Internet and restricted access to Social Media (including Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Viber) and indicated its keenness to control Social Media.

On 22nd June 2018, the new Prime Minister Dr Abye Ahmed's government reported that it had unblocked 264 websites including after 12 years of blockage as attested by the OONI’s thorough verifications of our website’s unblocking .
