The Ethiopian government has been calling some Ambassadors to home in recent weeks. Girma Birru, Ethiopia’s Ambassador to the United States is the latest to be called to return to Addis Ababa.

The former Economic Development and Cooperation minister was appointed to the Ambassadorial position in the United States in 2010.

The government’s motive is not clear but there are speculations that it could be linked to “anti-corruption campaign.”




To date, it is known that about 60 government technocrats including one parliamentarian are in custody in relation to corruption. However, no senior government officials with links to the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, who are alleged to be indulged in grand corruption scandals, are arrested.

Ethiopian Satellite Television, US based Ethiopian News broadcaster, cited anonymous sources to report that Ambassador Girma Biru might not return home due to the uncertain situation at home related to corruption crack down.

ESAT report added, “sources who allege that the ambassador has a stake in a number of dubious businesses including factories and real estate buildings.” And some of the businesses are under investigations for corruption.
