Ethiopia - Varnero to build Martyrs’ monument
By Groum Abate
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - Varnero Construction has signed an accord for the erection of the ‘Red Terror Victims Monument’, which is planned to be built at Meskel Square in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Varnero signed the agreement with the Association for the Erection of Martyrs’ Memorial Monument that was launched on 27 Dec. 2007.
Association board chairman, Dagnachew Kassa and Deputy Manager of Varnero Construction Company, Adolfo Varnero, signed the accord on Wednesday to erect the monument within nine months.
He said over 9.4 million birr would be extended for the erection of the monument on 810 sq. meters of land. The stated sum was secured during a telethon held for the cause.
The monument, which comprises a building meant to rest the remains of the martyrs, a library, a museum, and other service rooms, would be erected in such a way that it would add to the beauty of the city.
Adolfo Varnero said on his part that his company is honored to erect the historical monument. Hence, the company would do everything possible to erect the monument as per the schedule.
M.H. Engineering, a private company that carried out design of the martyrs’ monument for free, will undertake the consultancy and monitoring services during the erection of the monument.
Happy that the monument is going to be erected. But sorry for the fact that this MH engineering is actually monompolizing every design and consultancy work in the nation. It is not part of our dream to have such a monstrous company that is getting all important governmental and non governmental commissions without any valid competition. It is a massive consultancy company reputed to pay huge amount of remuneration for its employees, while adopting unethical methods of gettting the jobs and running the design and consultancy practice.
