By Andualem Sisay Gessesse – Reuters News Agency, one of the major global news wire has reported fake news on Ethiopia putting in quotation mark false twit by President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda.

On November 16 in its headline, Uganda leader meets Ethiopian official, urges talks, Reuters has falsely inserted the following twit, which was not twitted by President Museveni. “A war in Ethiopia would give the entire continent a bad image. There should be negotiations and the conflict stopped, lest it leads to unnecessary loss of lives and cripples the economy,” tweeted Museveni after unconfirmed media reports that Uganda may play a mediation role.



The news of Reuters has followed the visit of Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Demeke Mekonnen whose delegation met with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. The fake news is reported by Nairobi newsroom; Writing by Andrew Cawthorne; Editing by Duncan Miriri and Toby Chopra.
Below are the ONLY actual THREE twits by President Yoweri Museveni after he met the Ethiopian delegation.

Some of the international media journalists based in Ethiopia have been misleading the world by producing unprofessional, judgmental one-sided and fake stories in relation to the ongoing fight between the national defense force of the federal government of Ethiopia and the armed group of TPLF, which officially admitted attacking the northern command of Ethiopian army about three weeks ago.
