Egyptian telecom billionaire, NaguibSawiris, met with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Monday.

The Wind Mobile founder’s visit is widely seen as strategic, since the state-run telecom service provider – Ethio telecom – is in the process of partial privatization.

The billionaire Sawiris did not say a content of the discussion but said has held “great” discussion with Prime Minister Abiy.

In his posted on twitter account accompanied by a photo with the PM, Sawairis said expressed his admiration for Abiy saying “a new breed of African leaders reaching out to old enemies and making new friends God bless him and protect him… thank for a great day”. (Daily Monitor)
