Ethiopia GERD Dam Construction Progresses as Scheduled: Minister


ADDIS ABABA (Somaliguardian) – Ethiopia’s federal government said the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) was progressing as planned, state-affiliated Fana TV reported on Sunday.

Ethiopian Minister of Water, Irrigation and Energy Dr Seleshi Bekele stated that the “GERD construction progresses as scheduled” amid heightening row with Sudan and Egypt over the mega dam.

As he continued to speak further, Dr Seleshi added that the support of Ethiopians at home and abroad for the dam reached its climax.

“We shall deliver this clean energy for prosperity of Ethiopia and Africa,” Dr Seleshi tweeted.

The Minister made the statement shortly after meeting with contractors, consultants and board members involved in the construction of the dam.
