Sophia the robot meets Ethiopian PM :: Kenya

She shot to fame after becoming the first robot to gain the citizenship of a country

Sophia, the famous humanoid robot, has finally met Ethiopia’s prime minister after her lost body parts were found.

A bag containing some of the robot was lost at Frankfurt airport last week, which led to the cancellation of a press conference scheduled to take place on Friday at the Ethiopian National Museum in the capital, Addis Ababa.
