The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church held a press conference on the celebration of the upcoming Epiphany holiday and the current affairs in the country.
Abune Abraham, head of the administration in the patriarchate, highlighted government pressure on the Ethiopian church to impose practices on different issues. He also highlighted that government security search vehicles coming from Ethiopian Church but cars coming from the patriarchate are not searched. He questions, why? “We do not have a tank!”, he added.
The Ethiopian Church has been instructed not not to use Ethiopian flags during open air religious celebrations in the capital Addis Ababa.
