Ethiopian Electric Utility (EEU) has introduced organizational and operational changes in order to rectify the electricity provision problem witnessed across the country. EEU Board Chairman Getahun Mekuria told journalist today that 11 deputy CEOs have been appointed for the newly opened offices in the nine regional states and two city administrations. The major duty of the 11 deputy CEOs is delivering efficient services and ensuring accountability in the respective regional states and cities, he said, adding that the reorganization will save time and help resolve problems promptly as they operate in close proximity. According to Getahun, all issues and demands have normally been directed to the headquarters causing delay and failure in serving the public. The Board Chairman said the reform will also create opportunity to check accountability with regional states and administrations, and work closely to solve problems related to rehabilitation programs of power distribution.
