“Gov’t has to respond to Orthodox church in a sense of urgency,” Tewodros Mebrat

September 17, 2019

In an interview with Andafta Media, Tewodros Mebrat who is a lecturer of law in Addis Ababa University says reflects on the importance of building an institution and maintaining, effectively, government’s monopoly of power when it comes to the use of force.

He also talked about the importance of addressing Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) demands with a sense of urgency. Otherwise, says Tewodros, what will unfold is very concerning.

  1. We are fed up with Orthox , business owners are tired of young orthodox followers employees calling days off each day of the month claiming it is a holiday.

    • the problmùe is not with followers , it is the propaganda and tactics employed by the socalled mahibrekidusan who mislead youngsters , numb them and to get them subdued for its propaganda and commercial mission.

      There were bahtawiyans , monks and hermits, who tell to the naive people that the world is going to vanish in 1993 and they continue to tell and spread lies after lies to get alms from these pêople . These peopel still live in a huge villa being married 16 youths calling them selves bahtawiyan and godly messengers. Mahibrekidusan is holds them same story while insulting diasporas DJ and dish washers.

  2. Yes, they should authorize the Oromo church independence and other regions to exercise thier statehood.That is it. No more progaganda and terrryfing message.
