The Ethiopian Church on Wednesday announced that it has selected nine bishops who are going to serve in Dioceses in the Oromia region and South Ethiopia. 

According to a report by Mahibere Kidusan, the Holy Synod administered votes to elect the new Bishops whose ordination is scheduled to take place in a few days.  They will be ordained in the hands of His Holiness Abune Mathias, Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. 

Abba Sahlemariam Tolla, Abba Woldegebriel Abebe, Aa Tilahun Worku, Abba Amdemichael Haile, Abba Hailemariam Getachew, Abba Ze Teklehaymanot Gebre, Abba Estifanos Gebre, Abba Kinfegebreil Teklemariam and Abba Sebhatleab Hailemariam are the names announced to be winners during the voting process. 

From the information released by Mahibere Kidusan, the highest vote is 30 and the lowest vote is 18. 

They are to be assigned in West Arsi, East Wollega, East Hararge, Horo Guduru, Dire Dawa, West Wollega, Bunno Bedele, Dawro Konta and Gedeo dioceses. 

In January of this year, the Ethiopian church experienced an internal turmoil when three renegade members of the Holy Synod broke away from Ethiopian Church’s highest church body with the intention to establish an ethnic Oromo patriarchate in the Oromo region – which practically meant two Holy Synods within a single country.  To that end, they ordained over 17 bishops in a way that violates the Orthodox tradition – which many Orthodox Churches, including the Egyptian and Russian orthodox churches, criticized. 

The reason behind the breakaway was  said to be the political mobilization of the part of radical ethnic Oromo nationalists who are pushing an “Oromummaa” ideology one of whose core strategy is to weaken the Orthodox Church in the Oromo region so as to impose an ethnic oromo traditional belief – Waaqeffannaa. 

Initially, the Ethiopian Church excommunicated the three renegade Archbishops and stripped them of their clerical authority while offering the opportunity for them to repent and return to the Holy Synod. 

At the time, Ethiopians across the country and abroad reflected a belief that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s group was behind the division. 

It got to a point where the Ethiopian Church, in February this year, had to declare three days of norming in resistance to what appeared then was government interference one of the manifestations of which was the renegade archbishops and the bishops they illegally appointed were forcefully breaking  into churches in the Oromia region. Resistance from the laity was dealt with brutal measures and dozens were killed and thousands arrested.

Later, PM Abiy Ahmed emerged as a “mediator” and an “agreement” was reached. Part of the agreement, as prescribed by PM Abiy Ahmed whose video footage was released on national television, was to appoint new bishops in the Oromo region of Ethiopia. Today, appointments seem to be in line with that. 

The Ethiopian Church said the nomination was undertaken by a committee selected by the Holy Synod and that it was based on study [a sort of background check and competence] on the nominated ones. 

His Grace Abune Ermias, Archbishop of North Wollo and Kemise Dioceses

From conversations on social media, there appeared to be a sentiment among Ethiopians that the church should not have fallen into the ethnic trap where bishops are appointed on the basis of their ethnic identity.

His Eminence Abune Ermias, a member of the Holy Synod, appeared on the Ethiopian Media service. He said that the practice used during the appointment of the nine bishops has been in place since the time of His Holiness Abune Paulos. Abune Paulos was appointed after the ethnic Tigray nationalist Tigray People’s Liberation Front toppled Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam’s government with political and diplomatic help from the United States and its Western allies.

    Vatican City: Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world and has the lowest population with an estimated population of around 800.
    Tuvalu: Tuvalu is a small island nation in the Pacific Ocean and has a population of approximately 11,646.
    Nauru: Nauru is a tiny island country in Micronesia and has a population of around 10,900.
    Palau: Palau is an archipelago located in the western Pacific Ocean with a population of approximately 18,094.
    San Marino: San Marino is a small landlocked country in southern Europe and has a population of around 34,232.

    In Ethiopia, more than 1.7 million people have been displaced in the northern Tigray region, according to the International Organization for Migration. According to UN, . An estimated 59,000 people fled Ethiopia finding refuge in eastern Sudan..
    A 9 December OCHA report found that between 25 November and 1 December, over 10,000 Tigrayans were newly displaced from Western Tigray .
    In conclusion, the Tigrayan genocide, mass migration, mass starvation deaths, and sexual violence were all caused by the Ethiopian orthodox tewahedo church, today known as fanodox. All of these events were sponsored and blessed by religious authorities.The number of victims of the two-year long genocide and malnutrition exceeds the population of the world’s least populous nations.It should be mentioned that eritrean mercenaries and the Fano Amhara Militia continue to massacre innocent people to this date , nonstop. Till this day, children are continuously being harmed by these mercenaries and starvation. Tigrayans are still troubled by what the Ethiopian Orthodox Church did two years ago, and it will continue to have an impact on their lives and future. The Amhara fandox church’s apology is judged to be insufficient in light of the language used and the severity of the harm done for over 2 years .

  2. Fano mercenary Propagangist who goes by “” Truth is painful and she tastes bitter too, but we will bow down before her, because liars and their lies have no place here “”

    Do you believe that posting extensive fano propaganda will deceive Ethiopians? Amhara debteras, bishops, priests, and pastors infest all of Ethiopia’s orthodox parish churches and dioses. Amhara riffraffs control the entire Mahibrerikusan(koshasha hashisham), also known as the Mahibrekidusan.

    The two patriarchates are powerless in comparison to the other leaders and Amhara members of the synod, however patriarchates in leadership roles are limited to ceremonial tasks such signing documents and greeting guests on the account of fano gang members controlling the church.

    You are SYCOPHANTS, servants of arab and eritreans and burned your own churches and massacred children , priests and elderly men and women attending holy mass.
