City Administration Resumes Land Services

November 28 , 2020

The Addis Abeba City Administration has announced that it resumed services for land and land-related issues as of November 20, 2020. The City Administration had suspended services as of August 29, indefinitely until the ongoing investigation was completed. Winding up the investigation, the head of the Mayor's office and cabinet affairs, Ephraim Gizaw, wrote a letter to all of the 11 districts to cease services until the problems in the area are fixed. The City Administration suspended the services after stating it needed to investigate ongoing service provision, produce new directions and find solutions to solve problems related to the service provision. Last week's announcement for the City Administration informed the districts to resume services including the transfer of names and title deeds, as well as the sale of buildings and houses. The City Administration has also been checking the ownership of buildings and condominium housing units in the capital, requesting that owners produce documents that demonstrate their ownership.
