The censorship order has been lifted as it contradicts an article in Ethiopia's constitution. The Addis Abeba Bureau of Culture & Tourism lifted censorship of film and theatre productions effective October 5, 2018, stating that it is "conceding to the constitution".

The censorship was lifted as it contradicts Ethiopia's constitution, which states that the freedom of the press, mass media and artistic creativity are "guaranteed" by Article 29 of the constitution, according to a new circular issued by Nebiyu Baye. Nebiyu, who replaced Gebretsadik Hagos, served as an assistant professor of theatre and film at Addis Abeba University and as head of the National Theater before moving to the culture & tourism office. The basis for the original censorship was a regulation approved by the former head of the Bureau, Gebretsadik Hagos, and issued about five years ago, which required films and theaters to be submitted for approval prior to being presented in public. Players in the film industry applaud the move, saying that censorship has constrained the industry.
