According to Sheger FM, Hana suffers from a disease that affected the right side of her face and eye. Doctors had told her that the small lump on her face is due to cancerous types.
Hana said “although I applied for work in various organisations, the only response I got was lip sucking.” She has found it difficult to find work in her area of study.
Despite her disability may have complicated her success in finding work, Hana’s fate is mainly the result of the current Ethiopian regime’s education policy which is mainly geared towards quantitatively increasing the number of university graduates rather than quality and employment.
In the last Ethiopian fiscal year, Ethiopian universities gradated 100,000 students with first degree.
Hana told the Radio that she would be pleased to work and that she is competent enough to work in her profession if she was given the opportunity.

  3. I am sorry to hear such a sad story, but you don’t blame the government for what happened. It happens all over the world. I have met a medical Dr. Who is driving taxi and a Master holder working as security guard, parking lot attendant…I thought you wrote the article to help the young lady for treatment. You can blame the government for issues like democracy, poverty and food security. Be realistic!
