PM Hailemariam removes Shiferaw Shigute

(by EthioTime) Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn has been reported to have removed his other regional comrade, Education Minister Shiferaw Shigute in a week time after Mekuria Haile has been sacked from Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.

Many people in the East African country have been suspicion toward the capacity of Shiferaw to up hold ministerial post especially the education where country’s educational institutions suffer from curricula being abandoned due to funding cuts, unqualified – but party-loyal – lecturers, and shoddily built institutions.

Ethiopia’s higher education infrastructure has mushroomed in the last 15 years. The rapid growth of Ethiopia’s higher education system has come at a cost, but it is moving forward all the same, according to The Telegraph.

Despite this fact, the Ministry of Education under leadership of Shiferaw, higher education entrance exam leaking scandal plagued the nation all round to blockage of social media sites pressing the Ministry to cancel Higher Education entrance exam schedule in May this year.  

Shiferaw is an executive committee member of EPRDF and former president of South Region. However, EPRDF council announced last week a plan to conduct massive "clean up" including its top leadership which is followed by Hailemariam’s signoff to sack two ministers. The public seems annoyed with the act of taking the “small fish” down.

    Donors can also assist in designing specific interventions along the various dimensions of capacity that are laid out in the strategy. Among the activities that can assist in designing and implementing capacity building initiating include (a) helping the Government identity options for in capacity building initiatives. (b) regularly review with the Government on-going initiative to ensure that implementation of sub-programmers in on course, (c) provide focused assistance in implementing specific activities when required by adopting appropriate techniques and best practices, (d) support training and professional networking activities (e) support professional education in local university and technical institutes, (f) support capacity building in management with emphasis on developing skill in problem solving , financial and human resource management,communications, leadership, etc. The challenge for the donor community is to take a system-wide approach to capacity building alongside the Government and provide sustainable support for implementing Ethiopia's current and future capacity building initiatives.
  • Trit Mohammed Omar Added The Ethiopian Government recognizes that an integrative approach to capacity building requires a favorable macro environment which plays a crucial role for influencing the development of the right kinds of capacities both in the public and privates sectors, the effective use of these capacities, efficient and effective organizations and institution, procedures and process, human resources, governance, transparency and accountability, etc. It is with this in mind that the Government's overall goal and strategy for socioeconomic development has been framed around a supportive macro environment.

    The Government also realizes that human beings remains the centerpiece of the exercise in building capacity the ultimate aim being to develop individual capability, incentives and institutions so that they will perform efficiently and effectively in all their living and working environments. Focusing on the human aspects of capacity building is therefore critical. In the end , it is always people that make things work. A conductive macro environment makes it possible to create and retain the human resources that is so crucial to capacity building and, indeed, the very process of social and economic development.

    The goal of capacity building initiative is to promote development while giving priority to its human aspects. Good governance and human aspects of development are indivisible for eradicating poverty and attaining sustainable growth. This means that both men and women, particularly the poor, are at the forefront of national capacity building initiatives. Components of PSCAP such as urban management are intended to provide urban infrastructure and services which will results in better condition for women by reducing the time spent on fetching water from distance places. giving them more time to be spent on income generating activities, raises productivity and benefits the economy as a whole. So is decentralization which brings the process of decision making to the door steps of the rural poor where both women and men have to work shoulder to shoulder in combating poverty and improving their livelihood.

    Since the resources requirements of capacity building are substantial, prioritizing and sequencing of interventions over an extended time frame to optimize strategic impact is crucially important. This would require that the international community should commit resources within the framework of the Government's holistic approach to national capacity building, for success can only be ensured if there is full commitment and unreserved support on their part. It is the contention of the Government that Ethiopian can achieve its goals of sustainable growth, rapid poverty reduction and good governance, with simultaneous and strategic intervention in all key areas of capacity building in collaboration with its development partners. It calls on its development partners to take up the challenge and mobilize resources concerning national capacity building and integrate on-going efforts in to national programmers

    Donor efforts in building national capacity will go a long way in enabling the Government to respond more effectively to the economic, political and social challenges facing the country. indeed, the need for donor collaborating has never been so important. In the past, donor support for capacity building remained largely fragmented. The donor community is urged to make capacity building a more central theme of its assistance strategy and step up collaborative efforts, sharing experiences and insights from diverse capacity building situations in other parts of the world.
