The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam formerly known as the Millennium Dam and sometimes referred to as Hidase Dam, is a gravity dam on the Blue Nile River in Ethiopia that has been under construction since 2011. It is in the Benishangul-Gumuz Region of Ethiopia, about 15 km (9 mi) east of the border with Sudan. At 6.45 gigawatts, the dam will be the largest hydroelectric power plant in Africa when completed, as well as the 7th largest in the world. As of August 2017, the work stood at 60% completion. Once completed, the reservoir will take from 5 to 15 years to fill with water.

The Ethiopian government has formally commented on the deadly violence that has hit some universities across the country. According to the Minister of Education, Tilaye Gete, the underlying cause of the crisis was political but the government was doing everything possible to address the situation. Speaking to the state-affiliated outlet, FBC, the minister said: “The government is convinced that the problems are complex and need lasting solutions.” He stressed that the problem was created by a few students sponsored by forces bent on disrupting the country’s peace. displayAdvert("mpu_3") Reports of students abandoning their studies in universities in the Oromia and Amhara regions started earlier this week.
