No way to go




The Addis Abeba City Administration has a regulation issued in 2012 to enforce its codes. Among several activities the regulation prevents, “deploying sand, soil and any by-product, logging of stones or woods, dropping and putting of trees and mixing soil on roads without securing permission” is one. Doing so would subject offenders to a 1,000 Br penalty. Yet the many thousands of code enforcing officers deployed by the wereda offices are not mindful of such violation in many parts of the city, such as the one in the picture located on the road connecting the roundabouts of Ayat and Sammit.
