Ethiopia to begin filling Nile dam in 2 weeks

 ADDIS ABABA :Ethiopia will start filling its $5 billion hydroelectric dam on the Nile in two weeks, the government said on Saturday.

 

The announcement came after an online summit of the leaders of Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt convened by the African Union (AU) for negotiations on guidelines for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).

 

A statement by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s office said the three countries have agreed to continue the dialogue and reach a deal within the next two weeks.

 

 

 “Ethiopia is scheduled to begin filling the GERD within the next two weeks, during which the remaining construction work will continue. It is in this period that the three countries have agreed to reach a final agreement on a few pending matters,” read the statement.

 

“The meeting also resolved to notify the United Nations Security Council that the Africa Union is seized of the matter.”

 

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, the current chair of the AU, presided over the meeting, which was also attended by representatives of the Bureau of the AU Assembly, comprising Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Mali.
