ADDIS ABABA – Federal Police have arrested Mitiku Kassa, Commissioner of the National Disaster Risk Management Commission of Ethiopia, on suspicion of corruption, a state-run television says.
The arrest was made on Wednesday following a major investigation on a corruption case involving Mitiku and a local NGO named Elshadai.
Deputy commissioner Tadesse Ayalew of the Federal Police told EBC the NGO received food and other aid items to support “non-existent” internal displaced people in Awash, Adama, Hawassa, Enjibara, and other places.
The NGO later sold the aid items and bought a house for the commissioner using the money it raised from the sale, according to the federal police.
