Ethiopia and Eritrea were bitter enemies for half a century, who fought wars that left tens of thousands dead and many more displaced, have embraced peace in the space of a few days.

This is very big news not only for Africa. The rapprochement between Ethiopia and Eritrea offers an example to the world of what is possible with bold leadership.

The man largely responsible for this change is one of the most dynamic and charismatic politicians to emerge in modern Africa.

The 42-year-old Ethiopian prime minister has freed political prisoners, sacked officials accused of abuses, lifted press restrictions, began to liberalize the economy and has now - with the help of Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki (pictured on the right) - ended the war with Eritrea.

When Dr. Abiy embraced Eritrea's President Isaias Afewerki in Asmara, it was the latest and boldest move from a prime minister who has stunned his own people and energized pro-democracy activists across the continent.
