Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed hosted 200 business people and representatives from several organisations for a Sunday dinner dubbed “the most expensive in the country”.

Guests had to pay $173,000 (£136,000) to dine at the palace of a former emperor of the country, Menelik.

The event was held to help reach a $1.1bn fundraising target to pay for the regeneration of an area in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Beautifying Sheger Project, as it is called, involves cleaning the rivers and building recreational parks in the capital.

State linked-Fana news site, tweeted pictures of the table setup, alongside models showing what the project would look like when complete. (BBC)
