Lay offs lead to theft at Ethiotelecom

by yeEthiopiaforums

People in the small room of an old building at Arat Kilo, waited in long lines like they normally do at the beginning of every month to pay their phone bills. However, this month many had to come back several days in a row when they were told the cashier had not shown up for work. Normally people have seven days to pay the bill without penalty.
So when the cashier didn’t show up even after a week, people began to worry.  But instead of having to pay a penalty, people were told to come on Friday March 11 and pay their bill without any fine.  It was then that an explanation was given to the customers.  Apparently the cashier ran off with 80,000 birr from the collection.

One employee who declined to give her name, because of the sensitivity of the issue, reported that the cashier took all the money that they collected.
Similar incidents have taken place in different areas. According to Capital sources, before the Arat Kilo incident, over 330,000 birr was taken from Debre Birhan branch. In Addis Ababa at the London Café location near 1.3 million birr disappeared, while at Nekemt branch about 6 million birr was taken away. Though the amount of money stolen is not known, there are reports that the money collected in Afar, Dire Dawa and Gondar regions have also vanished.
