The sites will remain blocked until the national school exam is finished Wednesday

Many citizens are complaining, because the sites have been blocked since Saturday.

The government communications office said the blocking of sites is meant to ensure an “orderly exam process”

Earlier this year, an online leak of the exam sheets forced the tests to be postponed.

Ethiopia’s Education Ministry says 254-thousand students are expected to sit for the national exams.
