Landslide at massive Ethopia garbage dump kills 15, dozens missing
Efforts are still under way to find people still missing since the landslide late on Saturday which destroyed 49 dwellings, city spokesman Amare Mekonen said.
Most of the dead were women and children. At least 37 people have been pulled from under the trash alive and are receiving treatment, Addis Ababa Mayor Diriba Kuma told AFP. The accident has also injured 22 people and two of them who are severely damaged are being treated at ALERT (African Leprosy Rehabilitation and Training Center) Hospital, Government Communications Affairs said in its statement this morning.
Resident Assefa Teklemahimanot tells The Associated Press that the resumption of garbage dumping at the site in recent months likely caused the landslide.
"My mother and three of my sisters were there when the landslide happened".
"These people. had no option but to live and work in such a hazardous environment because of the government's failure to protect their right to adequate housing and decent work", the group said in a statement. Some 500 waste pickers are believed to visit the dump every day, sifting through the waste of the better off for anything of value.
"We expect the number of victims to increase because the landslide covered a relatively large area", he said.
Ethiopia has been building Africa's first waste-to-energy plant near the landfill. A 2014 report pointed out that when the landfill was built more than 40 years ago, it was on the outskirts of the capital.
