'somewhere in africa' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I don't understand how one could define the other.

(Other definitions for ethiopian that I've seen before include "from African country" , "found in Addis Ababa" , "From, eg, Addis Ababa" , "Citizen of north-east African state" , "Like Emperor Haile Selassie?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
