On PM Abiy Ahmed’s “ሸገርን ማስዋብ” project
For the record, I do not support Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s so called “ሸገርን ማስዋብ” project. I believe the fourty-billion-birr-project (that is about half of the initial budget of what’s now known as the “Grand Renaissance Dam”) is a misplaced investment on a long privileged city, Finfinne, already over congested with mega-scale investments from both the private and public sectors. Plus, the project would displace some 20K residents along the river bank and that isn’t a small number of people as some friends who support the project claim.
But be that as it may, I think one thing may likely happen as “after effect” of this project— that such a huge amount of money pumped onto the already over privileged city in the name of “river bank development project” would exacerbate the the already skyrocketing living cost for the ordinary Ethiopian residents of the city. Perhaps, I might be among the cohorts who would be knocked out of the city because of this projects’ “after effect”. I’d retreat to my Adama if that’s for sure to happen
The PM would have done us all a favor, also for his own self, if he tries to prioritize dealing with our urgent problems including shortage of vital utilities like electricity, and also peace and security.
