Lemi Kura added as the brand new sub-city to Addis Ababa Metropolis Administration Swearing in ceremony of the brand new appointees of the sub-city administration (Photograph : Addis Ababa Metropolis Administration)borkenaOctober 21, 2020Addis Ababa Metropolis Council on Tuesday had a dialogue on restructuring the town administration. And one of many agenda gadgets was restructuring sub-cities.Earlier than yesterday, the administration had ten sub-cities. The brand new mayor, Adanech Abeibei, appears to have managed to push for the agenda of making yet one more. Whether or not the initiative is knowledgeable by political motives or in any other case is unclear.What is evident is that Lemi Kura is added as the brand new sub-city. And Elias Mohammed is the Chief administrator of the brand new sub-city.On Tuesday, her administration introduced eleven new appointments to run the restructured sub-cities. It’s claimed the brand new management is chosen based mostly on tutorial qualification, expertise, and management competence. It’s public data that political loyalty or affiliation takes primacy within the appointment of top-level (even junior stage for that matter) bureaucratic positions within the federal, regional, and metropolis authorities positions. Seen from that angle, it’s only questionable if Adanech Abiebie‘s new appointment is free from it.She took over her new function in August 2020 after the previous mayor, Takele Uma, was faraway from the place on grounds of what later was mentioned to be a corrupt apply particularly on city housing and land administration. The federal government later disclosed that over 20, 000 condominium models within the metropolis had been illegally transferred to individuals who weren’t on the ready listing of registered residents within the metropolis.Moreover, 210,000 hectares of land within the metropolis was mentioned to have been misappropriated. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed appeared to have inherited the customary practices from TPLF period governance whereby authorities who violated moral practices are assigned to a special function (normally Ambassadorial place). Within the case of Takele Uma, he was slightly promoted as Minister of Mining and Petroleum.The politics of Addis Ababa is actually one of the controversial points in Ethiopia particularly after Abiy Ahmed took workplace in April 2020.Below his management, his former social gathering, Oromo Democratic Celebration (ODP), now defunct, performed a key function within the formation of the Prosperity Celebration, and it’s believed to have retained colossal leveraging energy in. Earlier than the merger, ODP claimed unique possession over Addis Ababa.Aside from that, there had been allegations of makes an attempt to change the demographic composition of Addis Ababa up to now two years. In line with those that espouse the view, the aim is to realize a bonus throughout the election. Greater than 80 % of Addis Ababa residents are believed to be non-Oromo when Abiy Ahmed assumed energy in 2018.Bilingualism has emerged as a brand new downside. The Abiy Ahmed authorities needs the power to talk the Oromo language and Amharic language as a criterion within the technique of recruitment for presidency positions. Nonetheless, most younger folks within the capital Addis Ababa don’t communicate Oromo language which implies that they’re much less prone to land on public service jobs. Abiy Ahmed firmly defended the transfer when he appeared on the parliament on Monday this week.Leaders of the motion to defend the rights of the folks of Addis Ababa, like Eskinder Nega and his deputy Sintayehu Chekol, are incarcerated on trumped-up costs of involvement within the violence following the loss of life of Hachalu Hundessa in early July 2020.
