Kitaw was born in Bonga, a town in Kaffa province. His humble beginnings masked the great promise of this unique individual. He could have easily followed in his father's footsteps and chosen a career in the local police forces. He might have even joined the military. But he was a curious and inquisitive child. He wanted to know how and why things worked. While in elementary and high school he always ranked first in his class. His father was always proud of him.
Engineer Kitaw Ejigu was Chairman and CEO of TransTech International
