Bob Marley Statue in Addis Ababa to be Demolished
After the presumption of the Addis Ababa Traffic Management Agency that the demolition of “unnecessary” avenues would ease the traffic jam in the city, a statue at the Bob Marley Street is going to be demolished soon.
Demolition of the statue was planned some time ago, but where to re-erect the statue has been the major concern, Sheger FM reported. “That concern has solved once and for all,” officials of the Agency told journalists on Thursday.
The agency has planned to bulldoze some streets, which said to have created a traffic jam, according the findings of its study. Therefore, the Agency has already level the Ja Cross Street and Bob Marley statue is among one of such steals.
Jemo, Bole Michael and 18 Mazoria Streets have also been destructed with such intention, according to the Agency.
