Is Ethiopia in the midst of a green revolution? « An Africanist Perspective
This is from Bachewe and co-authors in World Development: Despite significant efforts, Africa has struggled to imitate the rapid agricultural growth that took place in Asia in the 1960s and 1970s.

Why is Telegram so popular in Ethiopia and not WhatsApp?
Across Africa, WhatsApp reigns supreme among social media users, with a notable exception: Ethiopia, where Telegram is the preferred social platform. Why? Some possible explanations include less expensive data and its farther reaching public post features, Abdi Latif Dahir writes for Quartz:

"Given that, the economics of downloading and using Telegram (49 megabits) versus WhatsApp (103 MBs) or Messenger (125 MBs) is part of what makes Telegram attractive in Ethiopia, says Moses Karanja, a doctoral candidate at University of Toronto and researcher at the Citizen Lab. [Note: Moses is also a former OTF ICFP fellow]. In his research, he says, Ethiopians have told him how 'frequent updates were too expensive' and that 'internet bundles consumption is lighter and hence cheaper' with Telegram...Mark Kaigwa, the founder of Nairobi-based tech research company Nendo, says many Ethiopians could nonetheless be attracted to some of the other features that make Telegram unique. Key among these is the ability to create super groups of up to 100,000 members, hence facilitating political activism. In contrast, WhatsApp allows group chats and broadcast lists of up to 256 people."
