ADDIS ABABA (EthiopiaOnline)―Addis Ababa City Council appoints Takele Uma Banti, Eng., as the city’s deputy mayor replacing the outgoing mayor.
The City Council made new appointments, including the deputy mayor, on its extraordinary session meeting held on Tuesday.
Engineer Takele Uma Bani will be replacing the outgoing Mayor Diriba Kuma, who has been in office since July 2013.
Engineer Takele has served the Oromia Regional State in different positions, the last one as Head of Oromia Transport Bureau.
Since Engineer Takele, a graduate of Addis Ababa University (MSc, BSc), is not a member of Addis Ababa City Council, he was first appointed as deputy mayor and will take the role of mayorship, ultimately. Being accountable to the incumbent mayor, the responsibilities of the deputy mayor include acting on behalf of the mayor in the absence or incapability of the latter, and performing other functions as assigned to him by the mayor.

In addition to Takele’s appointment, the City Council has also assigned Solomon Kidane (PhD) and Dagmawit Moges as vice mayors. Dr. Solomon Kidane has been serving the General Manager of the Addis Ababa City Transport Program Management Office whereas Dagmawit Moges as the Head of Addis Ababa City Administration Communication Affairs Office.
It was learned last week that the outgoing Mayor Diriba Kuma has been appointed as Ethiopia’s Ambassador to Canada by Dr. Mulatu Teshome, the President of the federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
