Ethiopia starts producing electricity from Nile dam

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which pushed Ethiopia into a longstanding dispute with Egypt and Sudan, started generating electricity on Sunday, according to officials.

Ethiopian government officials on Sunday, said a giant hydroelectric dam built on a Nile River tributary has started generating power.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed officiated an event which saw one of the 13 turbines of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) begin power generation.

“From now on, there will be nothing that will stop Ethiopia,” Abiy said.
