  1. Addis Ababa bus depot picture above is another proof how inefficient the city of Addis Ababa administration is to tackle the spread of covid-19. PM Abiy Ahmed is spending considerably large
    amount of resources to build bullet proof , grenade resistant terrace at Mesqel Adebabay in Addis Ababa just to save his and his family members lives from possible attacks when he goes there to
    do his usual ranting at OROMIA and Addis Ababa residents how a great leader he is,

    Addis Ababa’s cross country bus station is subjected to such a high risk transportation arrangements and what worries the federal and the Addis Ababa government is how to extra protect the elites officials lives from Egypt’s attack in Addis Ababa.
