Residential houses have been demolished in order to implement the construction of new housing projects in Addis Abeba. Some residents were given monetary compensation, while others living in government-owned houses were promised residences in different locations. The photograph shown here is pictured near Eri-Bekentu, Arat Kilo on December 2, 2012. As the houses from Filwuha—Taitu Street to Arat Kilo —Adwa Street were evacuated , the graffiti is thought to be left by one of the displeased residents. It read as silekenubn aferesubn, literally translated as: since they were jealous of us, they tore down ours.
