In July 2013, one opposition site claimed Dawit had been to the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington and had a secret meeting with Ethiopia's foreign minister, Dr. Tedros Adhanom, which is considered a taboo by the diaspora opposition. At the time, in response to an email inquiry by horn affairs, Dawit denied the claim by producing a copy of his flight booking which appears to show he left Washington to Arizona two days prior to the date of the alleged meeting.


In May 2012, Dawit reestablished Awramba Times in an online form from Washington, D.C., which became popular fast getting the endorsement of Ethiopians all over the world.


In June 2011, CNN made Dawit Kebede a subject of its AfricanVoices program, which according to the cable news channel "highlights Africa's most engaging personalities, exploring the lives and passions of people who rarely open themselves up to the camera".

In November 2011, Dawit fled to the United States, fearing a lift of the government pardon that spared him from a life sentence in 20Following his decision to join the list of Ethiopian exiled journalists, rights groups say Dawit's fate is increasingly becoming a classical fate of contemporary Ethiopian journalists working in the independent press. CPJ said "Dawit Kebede has endured all of the Ethiopian government's tactics to silence independent voices, from official intimidation and state-sponsored smear campaigns to the jailing of his staff. The silencing of Awramba Times leaves the country with only one remaining independent critical newspaper.


In November 2010, Dawit Kebede received CPJ's International Press Freedom Award. CPJ announced that Dawit was selected to receive the prize for risking his freedom and security in the course of his reporting.


Dawit established a new company in March 2008 and began publishing the Awramba Times newspaper, of which he is Managing Editor. Until its closure in November 2011, the newspaper managed to become the second largest Ethiopian newspaper and the country's only newspaper that questions state authorities according to the Committee to Protect Journalists] (CPJ).


During the 2005 Ethiopian general election, Police opened gunfire in June 2005 against opposition supporters in Addis Ababa. Dawit critically condemned this action, referring to article 15 of the nation's constitution. Article 15 of the Ethiopian constitution states that "Every person has the right to life. No person may be deprived of his life except as a punishment for a serious criminal offence determined by law."

In November 2005 authorities arrested him along with senior leaders of the then leading opposition group, Coalition for Unity and Democracy for alleged involvement in the demonstrations. All were charged with treason, genocide, and attempts to subvert the constitution. The court later sentenced the prisoners to life in prison but they were pardoned and freed in July 2007. Though many of the editors in jail with Dawit have gone into exile, Dawit decided to remain in Ethiopia.

In this half-hour-long interview, Dawit says the then Ethiopian press existses in a climate of fear, claiming that after the 2005 election it hasn't been easy for journalists in Ethiopia to do their work independently.


Dawit started his professional career as a columnist in Ethiopian newspapers on socio-political issues in 2001. He later worked at Habesha Journal magazine, a bilingual health journal.
