'MY DAM' APP

Abie Sano (left), president of the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE), and Ashebir Balcha, chief executive officer at the Ethiopian Electric Power, bump elbows at a ceremony for inaugurating an application that allows users to donate directly for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) at the bank. The app is called “ItIsMyDam,” which can be found on both iPhone and Android phones, and is hoped to speed up completion of the GERD, which is expected to begin generating power in a few months. EDITOR'S NOTE: In a previous post we made an error incorrectly stating Kiros Haddush, director at Ethiopian Electric Utility, is in the picture. Rather it is Ashebir Balcha, chief executive officer at Ethiopian Electric Power. We regret the error and apologize to our readers.
