Police said on Friday that the cause of death for Semegnew Bekele, the chief engineer for the Great Ethiopia Renaissance Dam (GERD) ,was suicide.

Semegnew was found shot on the morning of July 26 at Mesqel Square. He took his own life with a gun registered to him, said Zeynu Jemal, commissioner general of the Federal Police Commission.
