H.E. Adanech Abiebie is committed to making sure every Addis Abebian gets a fair shot in a growing and prosperous Addis Ababa. Her administration is focused on making Addis Ababa’s prosperity more inclusive, advancing AA values, and building safer, stronger, and healthier neighborhoods across Addis Ababa 11 sub-cities.
Addis Ababa is unique in the Ethiopia’s political system – the mayor, AA’s chief executive, and functions as a governor, county executive, and mayor. Like governors, Mayor Adanech Abiebie runs Health Bureau, Education Bureau, issues driver’s licenses, and has Tax Authority. Like county executives, the Mayor runs the local jail, and, unlike most mayors, also oversees the public school system.
