About 84% Of Civil Servants In Mekelle Reported So Far To Return To Work: Interim Admin
About 84% of the total 2, 026 civil servants in Mekelle city have so far reported to return to work, said the interim administration of Tigray regional state.
Mayor of Mekelle city, Ataklti Haileselassie, told journalists today that regular police members have also been reporting to return to their duty by taking advantage of the call made by the administration.
He said the interim administration is working jointly with the national defence forces, members of the federal police and the residents to restore sustainable peace and stability in the city.
The mayor added efforts are underway to involve voluntary and ethical youth in the restoration of peace and stability as well as protection of infrastructure and public institutions.
Leadership were appointed in five of the seven sub-cities of Mekelle, Ataklti said, adding public consultations are being carried out to appoint heads for the remaining two sub-cities.
The mayor said councils at woreda and kebelle levels were re-established as the previous ones failed to respond to government’s decision allowing them to remain in place and continue to work.
Shortage of medical supplies in the city has been addressed now following the support from the federal government, he said, adding efforts are underway together with all stakeholders to tackle inflation.
