Addis Ababa: The Ethiopian government announced the establishment of a national anti-corruption committee to coordinate the government’s campaign against corruption.

The establishment of the national anti-corruption committee was announced by the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Thursday, as he emphasized the current threat corruption level, which he said is affecting the country’s socio-economic development and governance structure.

Ahmed also announced members of the seven-member national anti-corruption committee, which includes Gedion Timothewos, the Ethiopian Minister of Justice as well as Temesgen Tiruneh, the Director General of National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS).

Ahmed, who described corruption as “a pest that eats a country from the inside and depletes its resources,” said some corrupted authorities working in tandem with “greedy brokers and investors” are destroying the nation.

Ahmed said corruption is currently a threat to Ethiopia’s national security.

Ahmed further stressed the need to take serious measures, which includes both legal measures as well as the implementation of reform tools against corruption.
