ETHIOPIA – Forty-six people were killed while a still unknown number of people were unaccounted for when a landslide occurred at a landfill in the outskirts of the capital city of Addis Ababa yesterday.
The Ethiopian government had been trying to relocate residents living at the waste dump before the landslide occurred, according to Communications Minister Negeri Lencho.
Lencho said rescuers are still looking for those missing as the government is looking into why a big portion of the landfill at Koshe collapsed.
Lencho said the government had been trying to transfer the people at the landfill to another area so that a facility to generate electricity from processing waste products can be built there.
With yesterday’s tragedy, the Ethiopian government will pursue the relocation of the landfill inhabitants. GAC/Expat Media
