Toronto – As many as 200,000 residents are said to be affected in what is believed to be a politically motivated demolition in the heart of Addis Ababa. Abiy Ahmed’s administration denied any political motive or demographic changes to be obtained from what his government calls “corridor” development project. He painted it as a pure “development” project. 

The demolition started first in the outskirts of the capital Addis Ababa. As many as 500,000 residents were removed from the area under the guise of “illegal settlement.” Then the Oromia region established Sheger City by putting together seven towns that surround the capital Addis Ababa as one. 

For many, the demolition in the heart of Addis Ababa is very much likely to be the case of an extension of Oromizing the outskirts of Addis Ababa. Some point out that there is no indication if those affected by the current demolition will be reinstalled in their possession after the completion of the “corridor development.”   Others question who is going to be taking over the developments after the “corridor construction?” 

Abiy Ahmed had a “discussion” this week with Addis Ababa City Administration team, including the mayor, that is overseeing the project which is said to be completed in a matter of months.  One of the major concerns that residents have been expressing was the demolition of heritage sites. Abiy did not buy their concern. He said “any structure that you made with mud can’t be a historical site.” The criticism he got is that it is not the material with which a structure is built that makes it a heritage. Many of the structures his administration demolished were historical sites within the context of Ethiopia’s resistance to Fascist Italy.

    The idiot, 7ኛ ጨ is nothing but a common bully and cheat, on top of that he is an ignoramus. He has zero entrepreneurial skills, zero managerial experience and basically is an illiterate. To buttress up his idiocy and lack of qualifications, he talks incessantly, laboriously, loquaciously, ad nauseam. The fool can talk for 5 hours and not say one thing worthy of listening.
