(by EthioTime) The Federal Communication Affairs Office of Ethiopia has said the social media including Facebook, Viber and others are temporarily blocked to prevent potential distraction of grade 12 examinees with leaking rumors of exam booklets.
The office has posted on its official Facebook page that false information is spreading through the media that the exam booklets have once again leaked, and this is making students and parents worried. Therefore, according to the office, the government has decided to temporarily block the social media to keep calm students psychologically and take the exam without distraction.
The office has extended its message to individuals and organizations that may be affected by the blockage of the social media for their understanding as it is for the best interest of the students.
Students will sit again for university entrance exam after the booklets were claimed to be leaked by Oromo protesters.
EthioTime wishes all the best to the students.
