Toronto – Mahibere Kidusan on Thursday disclosed that its chairperson Li’qe Tiguhan Kesis Mulugeta Seyoum and Secretary Memher Wasihun Belay arrested by security forces – apparently federal government security forces.  

They were taken from their residences in the morning and their houses were searched. 

Currently, they are detained at the Federal police crime investigation office in Mexico Square. 

As of now, the Federal police  has not announced to the public that it has made arrests of senior Sunday school organization leaders and why it did so.

The Federal Police also arrested Merigeta Berhanu TekleYared – who was recently appointed as head of South and West Africa Dioceses. He was arrested on the same day around 6:00 a.m. from his residence.  His spouse, Eyerusalem, told Ethiopian Media Services (EMS) that the house was searched for hours. Security forces did not find anything.  Berhanu was arrested in October 2023 ahead of the patriarchate meeting and released in November 2023.

Mahibere Kidusan is a recognized entity that was established nearly forty years ago. It is under the Sunday School Division of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and offers spiritual services in higher education and dioceses across the country and beyond.  It has grown into a big organization with a presence in and outside of the country.  In Ethiopia, it undertook several projects that supports the services of the Ethiopian orthodox church.

The Ethiopian government under Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration has been attempting to dismantle the Ethiopian Orthodox Church from within by mobilizing ethnic Oromo nationalists to break up the church along ethnic lines. 

Last month, when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed held a “discussion” with Ethiopian Orthodox Church fathers in his office, he accused the church of “training an army in the outskirts of Addis Ababa.” 

Two days ago, the state media aired a documentary about the Fano Forces who were killed and captured in Addis Ababa. In that documentary, the government indirectly implicated the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. 

Over the past five years, the attack on Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church has been intensified – especially in the Oromo region of Ethiopia.  

In February 2024, Ethiopian Security authorities deported His Grace Abune Petros, Secretary of the Holy Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, as he returned from a service in New York. 

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is believed to have about 60 million followers in the country. Many followers of the church now tend to believe that the church is under attack from the Prosperity Party government whose leader and many in his structure are believed to be worshipers of the Prosperity Gospel. However, the Prime Minister thinks, and he says it openly, that no leaders but him did a great favor to the church.

  1. Abiy Ahmed and the 50 year Orommuma Savage agendas to massacre and attack Amharas and Orthodox Christians is running in full gear. Knowing how Abiy power is weakened and how every Ethiopians wants the Orommuma Savagery Prosperity Party gone Abiy is resorted to the real Orommuma beast.

    • The arrest of genociders  such as the Chairperson of the Mahibre Kidusan or any other genocidal member cannot be linked with an attack on the Ethiopian Orthodox Church The arrest of genociders  such as the Chairperson of the Mahibre Kidusan or any other genocidal member cannot be linked with an attack on the Ethiopian Orthodox Church

      If Mahibreseytan (calling itself Mahibrekidusan) has been around for *40* years, does that mean that its despicable deeds are acceptable?
      Mahibrekidusan was supporting and sponsoring genocide against people of Tigray.

      If religious virtues and sanctity were correlated with the age of a depraved Satanic, political, or genocide perpetrator like Mahibreseytan, there would be an abundance of examples of horrific crimes carried out by organizations and individuals that have been around for more than 40 years. In addition, Mahibreseytan undertook several projects sole to exploit the plight of impoverished men and women and to collect funds for personal gain and organizational profit.

      The arrest of genociders  such as the Chairperson of the Mahibre Kidusan or any other member of the so-called Mahibre Kidusan could not be associated with an attack  on the Orthodox Church. 

      The prosperity party should continue to arrest those satanic members of Mahibreseytan who were adding fuel to the fire (financing genocide and cheering) during the two-year conflict in Tigray.

  2. One weak, incompetent and ruthless Ahmed is not worth keeping when 120 millions are suffering from Abiy Ahmed made war, Genocide, starvation, destruction and mayhem.
    Every soldier must refuse serving one power hungry selfish dictator at the expense of their country and fellow citizens.
