Addis Abattoirs manager arrested
Efrem Desalegne, Managing Director of Addis Ababa Abattoirs Enterprise has been arrested on allegations of corruption.The Federal Ethics &Anti-Corruption Commission in coordination with the national security agency made the arrest on Tuesday, December 1, according to sources.
Two of the enterprise’s workers, Wubeshet Assefa, Procurement Administrator and Dereje Admasu, member of the Employees Association and a retired Procurement Administrator, Negusse Tadesse were detained earlier on Tuesday before the Managing Director was arrested.
The Managing Director’s arrest does not come as a surprise to most. Several employees constantly filed complaints against him, which were brought to the attention of the Addis Ababa City Administration, leading to his termination.
According to Aberra Kashun, Officer in the Complaint and Grievances Department of the Administration, his office has received administrative malpractice cases from the enterprise’s staff.
“We have received several cases against the Managing Director including those of corruption, which we then investigated and brought forward to the cabinet,” he said
Aberra added that the office has planned to investigate additional grievances in the current Ethiopian fiscal year. “Our office was established as an independent entity last September, enabling us to investigate several cases, which is crucial to good administration.”
Under Efrem, the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority signed a memorandum of understanding with the enterprise month ago, allowing the enterprise to construct a USD 100 million abattoir on 34,000 square meters of land. The new abattoir is expected to process 14,000 live animals per day, a five-fold increase from the current capacity.
Shwealef Yitbarek, currently Head of the Slaughtering Department of the enterprise has been named as the Acting Director, starting from November 20, 2015. A new Managing Director is expected to be assigned to the role in short period of time.
