Ethiopia: ERCA Fires 59 Employees in Relation to Corruption

 

Ethiopian Revenue and Customs Authority (ERCA) announced the expulsion of 59 of its workers in connection with corruption.

The Authority stated that the workers were fired because they have illegally acquired wealth against Article 37 of the Authority’s charter that strongly forbids workers from corruptive means of accumulating wealth.

It is also indicated that five stages of evaluation and assessment were conducted on the workers expelled that have been working from lower to branch office administrative posts.

Appropriate procedures are underway to recruit new workers to fill the gap created because of the expelled workers, the Authority said.
