If the report by DW Amharic is true, Oromo Democratic Party seem to have reversed Abiy Ahmed’s decision on removal of Takele Uma as Mayor of Addis Ababa. The news source cited what it called an individual who is close to Oromo Democratic Party (ODP). DW Amharic said in its report that Take Uma was among agenda items in ODP central committee meeting which has been underway in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa for two days. ODP is expected to issue a statement regarding its latest central committee meeting, and the issues that will be raised in the statement are going to be “strong ones,” DW Amharic said citing its anonymous sources. Takele Uma has served as acting Mayor of Addis Ababa for over a year now.
