Addis Ababa is having landlord problems again

For the second time in just over a yearAddis Ababa has been forced to close. In December 2013, bailiffs served the longstanding West Queen West Ethiopian restaurant with a notice of distress, saying they owed their landlord $41,980, according to The Grid. And then, two months later, they reopened. But in what now seems to be an unfortunate tradition, the spot is once again out of business, with another notice of distress slapped onto its front door. That notice, dated January 6, 2015, says that this time, they owe $80,000. Calls to the restaurant and a number listed under the same name as owner Aster Ketsela Belayneh both led to functioning, but full, voice mailboxes.
