Azeb Asnake (pictured) who is executive director of Ethiopian electric power is removed from her position, according to a report by government media sources.
It is unclear why she is removed from her position.
Azeb was named the 2017 POWER-GEN Woman of the Year.
There has been a rumor in social media recently that she would be removed in connection with an alleged corruption allegation but no evidence-based report is published yet.
Fana Broadcasting (FB) reported that the chairman of the Board of Ethiopian Electric power wrote a letter of appointment to Dr. Abrahm Belay who will be taking over from Engineer Azeb Asnake.
Based on the report, the new executive director worked as Cyber Technology engineer within Ethiopia’s intelligence department, National Intelligence, and Security Agency.
