divisive figure as the 6th patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church – Abune Matias, otherwise known as the chief Rabbi of Tigraye republic.

The late Abune Pawlos’s chosen successor and the favorite of the ruling TPLF junta, Aba Matias was elected on Friday 28 Feb 2013 after Bishops of the illegal pro-TPLF synod in Addis Ababa voted for him under the watchful eyes of warlord Abbay Tsehaye.

Recently denounced and condemned for walking in public with Tigray republic’s self appointed grand Mufti sheik Elias Redman to show his support for the government’s crack down on current Muslim uprising in Ethiopia, Aba Matias is expected to be banned from entering some monasteries and Churches due to his controversial election against the divine cannon of the fathers by an illegally assembled unholy synod just like his predecessor the late Aba Pawlos.

According to the Horn Times reporters in Addis Ababa, Aba Matias received a whopping 500 votes out of 806 available while non-Tigre Bishops like Abune Yosefe got less than 100 votes in the stage managed scandalous election organized by habitual election thieves, the TPLF warlords.

Hastily recalled from the Holy city of Jerusalem by the TPLF and ordered to stand election amid controversy concerning his citizenship, Aba Matias will face enraged Ethiopians in the coming days.

More news and commentaries to follow shortly.

    Readers,

    The Patriarch said, “By the grace of God, I am appointed to be Patriarch of EOTC”. That is my translation. Please watch and listen to the video.

    Mind you, he did not say I am elected by the electoral committee, but appointed by TPLF government. Mathias, you at least told us the truth. I don’t think that is slip of the tongue.

    That says it all guys.

    Selamawit finally showed her true colures by accusing Ethiopian hero Getahune Bekele as TPLF. what a shame how all Tigres are thinking the same.Is there any journalist or opposition leader exept for Abebe Gelaw who fearlessly fought the woyyane agames like Getahune Bekele? name for me one and make me eat the humble pie. Actually i wonder how many Ethiopians in the Diaspora know the former prisoner who caused a massive embarassment to woyyane colonizers when he escape from prison in 1998. Am proud that after a long silence he re emerged to be once again as he said above your worst nightmare.Tell me you bloody Selamawit isnt Ethiopia the colony of Tigray since May 1991? isnt Tigres like you first class citizens in Ethiopia? arent you controlling every aspect of the lives of Ethiopians? Getahune Bekele is the only honest and frank writer who told as as it is. We love him to bits and am glad to witness the birth of another hero in him.
    Dear Getahune Bekele i read what Abebe Tedla wrote about you insulting your birth place and calling you the most racist writer on the internet becouse you taked about the internal colonization of Ethiopia by the Agames.
    Go on and keep exposing their brutality.We Ethiopians choose you as our only true voice on the internet.
    I am Getahune Bekele and he is my voice
    Dele le Ethiopia hizeb

    My sister how is it possible for a scene human being to even call the genocidal Tigre junta EPRDF when we know that our country is under the brutal internal colonization of the minority Tigre clan. How is that possible to call for peaceful uprising against heavily armed mindless Tigre warlords? we are talking about a bunch of pig headed sub-humans like Samora and the late Meles Zenawi and the recently elected fake patriarch Aba Matias.
    Am ashamed of you, Selamawit, that you tried to associate me with such cold blooded murderes.
    Look, it is all about calling the spade a spade. Hence i will continue to call for armed resistance with no fear. I wont stop calling on fellow orthodox christians to wash clean our church with their blood.
    Finally to a certain Abebe Tedla of Aiga Forum who call himself proudly Tigre and described me as Gondere and a product of rape, well, firstly i never set my feet in Gonder, am proudly Ethiopian, and for the cheap insult, if i insult you back, you and your clan will never regain your self esteem.
    How i became your worst nightmare by exposing you crimes is encouraging me to do more and to dig deeper.

    First and for most It doesn’t surprising me that Abune Matias has become elected Patriarch of Ethiopian Orthodox Church since he is elected under supervision of TPLF elite Abay Tsehaye.
    Because of cyber-insecurity as Kenya election is approaching I couldn’t use my face book account for agitating and sharing the news that has broken my heart. I have stopped using my Face Book till March 4. It is now the time that we, Orthodox Christian, stand hand-in-hand and stop the dictatorial, divisive and ethnocentric regime interference once and for all. The Minority Junta has interfered in Orthodox Christian since the junta ascended on power in 1991 and we have since been in silent. How long we stay in silent while the regime goons are selecting their people to lead our religion? Their errands shouldn’t and couldn’t lead our religion. Our Muslim brothers and sisters, Mothers and fathers have been protesting against the dictatorial, divisive and ethnocentric regime interference in religion affairs for the past one year. We must take a lesson from them to keep our religion us ours; otherwise we have been remain enslaved at the hands of the Minority junta for a generation to come. On Tamerat Layene, Former Prime Minister of Ethiopia Transitional Coalition government, instruction the Minority junta had expelled the Patriarch to exile and replaced him by their own man ”Tagay Paulos”. when their comrade passed away they replaced by their own Cadre Aba Matiyas. It is an embarrassment for our religion. We must stand hand-in-hand for peaceful non-violence protest in order to protect our religion from evil doer alien intruder.
    Have a blessed Friday,
    God bless Ethiopia and The World.

    Even if i agree with all what the authors wrote i detest his statement like on the pictured comment ,Its immature and put us on the same page as the TPLF apartheiders we fight Against ;for the reason that to generalize the whole Population of Tigregna Speakers with that of TPLF apartheied dictatorial regime ,This kind of comments will help TPLF than exposed;
    “TPLF DOES NOT REPRESNET ALL TIGREGNA SPEAKERS”
    We rather benefit if we Organize and mobilize Ethiopians of all walks of life around the Globe to organize and for a world wide sameday rally around the globe .We must learn from our Muslim brothers and Sisters peaceful and persisited struggle against TPLF interference on religious affairs and demand and refuse Political Appointee TPLF chosen Priest and the newely “Elected” Patriarch of Ethiopia.
    We must always learn to prepared way ahead of TPLF actions,rather than waiting for TPLF heinous actions and react

    I strongly agree with the comment stated above that if we are honest enough at least with ourselves let alone with the courage to stand in unison and cry and act for the observance of our faith, we have to admit that we are becoming victims of the culture of an endless and if not senseless talking talks about talks. The followers of the Church (the people at large) are gavely trapped by an incredible level of degradation not only in thier secular lives but sadly enough in thier heavenly lives. I am not saying they have to go to war or fight in streets . ABSOLUTELY NOT!! What I am trying to say is that they did not show and they are not showing any seriousness when they are watching the very disgraceful and idiotic mix of the two palaces (political /party headquarters and religious palaces) in Arat Kilo are palying a huge mess with their real senses of lives. I am afraid our religious and moral values are not only terribly eroded but moving to a very irreversible crises. I do not know how mere preaching every sundy and holiday could make sense if we are not able and willing at least to express our frustration by learning from others ,like our Muslim compatriots. I do not know why and how we are always astonished by those politicians and politico- religious cadres who keep doing what they want to do in order to accomplish their missions ( be it evil-driven self-serving or otherwise). So many of us may as usual say/preach that ” God willing ,we will be OK some day .” I think it is an ABC of a real meaning of the Biblical teaching that Juses Christ was not sent to this earth just to preach/tell and pray . He was sent with a mission that reqiures teaching and living by actiona and example .

    My God give us the courage to live up to his expectation :”do not simply tell stories but show how it works!”
