Former Adama town mayor arrested

Today, the Oromia region Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission reported the arrests of the former Mayor of Adama town, Ato Sisay Negash, and five other individuals who were suspected of embezzlement. It was said that an investigation has been going on for a while and the arrests came after sufficient evidence has been compiled. The arrests of the former officials came after the detention of seventy-five individuals who were charged with corruption in the East Shewa zone, Ethiopia. It is known that Ethiopia’s crackdown against individuals suspected of high-level corruption and gross human rights violations began a few months ago and has so far landed more than hundreds in prison.
