Adanech Abiebie, the mayor of Addis Ababa, met with the city council earlier this week to present her administration’s six-month performance report. Similarly, the directors of the Addis Ababa City Police Commission and the Addis Ababa City Peace and Security Bureau shared the mayor’s concern that the influx of people into Addis Ababa, particularly on public holidays, has become a threat to the city. The words of an Addis Ababa City official have elicited an unfavorable reaction and comments from the public. He stated that Addis Ababa is critical for all Ethiopians for a number of reasons, including the fact that it houses all federal government institutions in the country. Second, Addis Ababa is the country’s largest metropolis, and the citizenry’s desire to relocate to the major city may increase.
