Cormorant from Lake Langano/Ethiopia

In List of birds of Ethiopia (Wikipedia) I find only 3 cormorants: Great cormorant, Socotra cormorant, Long-tailed cormorant. But no of them matches for me.

I took the picture at Lake Langano (Ethiopia), 25.1.2016
If it is not possible to identify the bird the family or genus would also be helpful.

Thanks for your help
