ADDIS ABABA:Ethiopia announced Friday it has completed the third filling of its mega-dam on the Blue Nile, a new milestone that could raise further tensions with downstream neighbours Egypt and Sudan. "The Nile is a gift of God given to us for Ethiopians to make use of it." The massive $4.2 billion dam, set to be the largest hydro-electric scheme in Africa, has been at the centre of a regional dispute ever since Ethiopia broke ground on the project in 2011. There is still no agreement between Ethiopia and its downstream neighbours Egypt and Sudan about the GERD´s operations despite talks held under the auspices of the African Union. But Ethiopia deems it essential for the electrification and development of Africa´s second most populous nation.

Last year, the height for that part of the dam was 575 meters when Ethiopia completed the second filling of the dam. Filling the dam has been planned to take place in the rainy months of June, July and August. Due to the heavy rain Ethiopia received this year, the third filling is completed early – without affecting the water shares of lower riparian countries. There are views that floor problems that Sudan experienced this year could have been worse had it not been for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. Ethiopian President Sahle Work Zewde said the dam is the image of the winning Ethiopia.
