The TPLF Appointed Abune Matias of Tigre as the 6th Patiarch of EOTC (The Horn Times)


The Horn Times Breaking News 28 February 2013

*Call for mass action reverberates across the globe

(By Getahune Bekele- South Africa)

In a move expected to create more tensions and divisions, Ethiopia’s ruling minority junta has appointed yet another 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.


  1. The issues are not being tigire or other ethnicity and the election is unfair and rigged . The main set back in all this fiasco is the election of a patriarch over existing patriarch is illegal. If they had exhausted the peace and reconciliation process, they could have reached to some sort of agreement by which they either reinstate the persecuted father or elect another one, who could be from any ethnicity, that could be accepted by all the faithful of the Church. Now the disunity of the fathers will continue and thus the Church suffers. Sad! Sad! Sad!

  2. With out peace and forgiveness to sit the holy of holy at kidist Mariam Church? I don’t think so. This is just for tragedy. “kemebah befit hidena yetetalahewu weym yaltesmamahewu kale yekir tebabal weym tarek.” What kind of church and what kind of God now?
    The greatest worior and wise man Atse TEWODROS shameful action sucide and his regime colapse main reason was God’s house the church not the British Army. Because of his miscalculated policy against the church God brought an army from the far that can beat him up. Now TPLF God is watching you. You do not know what the almighty God bring to your rigme. TPLF you are taking the advantage. I am telling you by Iron and fest nobody extende his rigme. TPLF I am not a politican supporting this or that but I can’t negotatit with my church unfair infulance. Let our church united now The state must leave our church alone now. Do not worry about this pope elected he take the risk by his own time . My eotc trust the LORD. just count down

      Thank you. That is not our question, attitude, and understanding just do not hijak people basic interst. Honey coated venem idea. “Balua mistun lemin newu hule matasebewu silat andeken yametachiwu tiyake yebereha aytoche wuha yet newu mitetut neber” my dear just up grade your attitude a little bit” our qqusetion before pope election peace and forgiveness must be first. The state must stop religion confusing. We the people in this demonic DNA age never have narrow mind friend if you just think yourself first. Amhara. Amhara. ……that is hate crime and it is the sign of demonic obsession. Think about we have very vey poor country the wealthy partioned by military liders and cadres these illagle hiden societies mut return the money for public use. Our country with out free media, free speach, free press free riligions it is just running on exercises machine. We need a distance how far we run and more to run. I tell you demon is even say shame on you shame on you how could these narrow minded leaders proud hungry,poor people. Let me return , ethiopia with out tigre, ormo, gurage, Amhara and every single citizen do not work or get real difinition. At this time people hungery truth freedom, and justs. At this time the leader can be somalia, jamayca, or carrot rabbit, hayena, or anybody who can administer ethiopians freely we do not have any choice or fabrite. Come on man ethiopian people are very smart. These racial, religion difference they are master about it. Impossible.
      So that is not the point. Tigre. Eritrian and other live forever and ever they have the right TO PERSUDE HAPPINESS IN THEIR GOD GIVEN COUNTRY. OUR PROBLEM IS NARROW MINDED, NEVER LEARNED, very selfish at least if they eat break fast 40 killo, lanch 60 killo, and dinner 45 killo it is really ok because they can’t afford it so nice courapt is very nice but they deposit in the siwith bank they can’t sleep brithing like hipo and sleeping ox they didn’t use it the country not use it we suffer by poverty why why why. May GOD forgive them.

  5. The fascist woyane has appointed 52 generals recently without informing the ‘dummy’ Prime minister Hailemariam, and 49 were all tigres. the ethnicity of the other 3 is unknown.

    The woyane control all the economy through their economic wing EFFORT, (which was formerly called rilief society of Tigrei). All the TPLF ‘tegadaly’ who have now become generals (like Samoura Younis) , and colonels and control the so called Defense forces. the appointment of this ‘patriarch’ is therefore not surprising. The woyane fascists know no shame whatsoever or feel embarrassed..

  6. What is the problem with you guys. what is wrong if he tigre or ormo amara, first of all christianity come by tigre to Ethiopia that does not mean that they should lead the church with out elect or cabacity.
    second the exiled synoyed were invited to addis they did not show up themselves what do you think they can do if no one is around.
    please diaspora do not let our country for the akari islam mefencha this is great opportunity for them. i am now doubt full about the synoed in exile weather they are true ortodox. why do not say at list yeker le egiziabher instead of saying the current and the former partiriarc are not ligitimate blabla.

  7. I think even the air we breath in ethiopia might be turned to smell “Tigre” since the tigre scientists are trying to transform ethiopia into a tigre sole inclave.

  9. Guys what i want to say is it is time for us to re-think our strategy and fight this rotten junta with arms. I fully agre with our hero journalist Getahune Bekele when he reapetedly exposed the colonization of Ethiopia by agame woyyanes. By the way to those tigres who hurled insults at him now see the truth that a tigre pop has been elected.
    Now it is up to us to fight and reclaim our country and our religion.

    thaks a million to the Habesha Ecadforum indepth africa and all other websites for being our true voice with Getahune Bekele’s marevellous and amazing contribution
    Dele le Ethiopia hizeb
