Mekdes Debesay recently celebrated her son birthday. After a few days her be is all over the social media. This time it wasn’t for good.
Discussion took place on a research paper on land and land issues and court suspensions that the Addis Ababa City Administration is debating.
Addis Ababa University, in collaboration with the Addis Ababa Bureau of Justice, presented a draft paper on land and land issues and court suspensions. In the presence of stakeholders directly involved in the service, the draft findings and solutions were presented and discussed to develop the study.
The mayor said it would be useful if we could find a solution by conducting studies that would help improve the management of the land in a sustainable manner.
He emphasized the need to focus on justice, and said that it was even more important now with the crisis over the issue.
“We have taken administrative action against 460 landowners who have committed various violations,” she said, adding that a lasting solution should be the focus of attention for all stakeholders.
The mayor said the talks should be intensified while a permanent forum is being set up
“We must all be held accountable,” he said.
“We can’t leave this alone. We must involve the people.” He also said that there should be a system that contributes to it.
During the discussion, it was stated that the road projects being constructed in our city, various projects that the city administration is going to undertake during the budget year, the development of prefabricated houses and similar public-oriented development projects due to temporary suspension by the court are urgent and need to be addressed immediately.
Participants of the discussion suggested that coordination among institutions needs to be coordinated in order to resolve any irregularities, including litigation, and the need to work together to alleviate the problem.
