The 2nd November remarks the 87th jubilee of the
coronation of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I as
Ethiopias King of Kings . We honor H.I.M. who sits upon
the throne of Solomon. Defender of the Ethiopian
Orthodox Tewadeho Faith and Church. Glory and
majesty, may God bless our beloved emperor forever
and may God bless our beloved Mamaland Ethiopia.

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver
from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him
shall the gathering of the people be. Selah

"As Sunday, November 2, dawned clear, all in Addis
Ababa began to prepare for the impressive event of the
morning. The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah and
his Empress have just completed a night of prayer and
devotion at the most high altar within. Through the early
morning the chanting of praises continued, accompanied
by the dancing of the priests with their great pulsating
drums, the whole suggestive of the Ancient Jewish rites
which were in use at the time of King David danced
before the Ark of the Covenant.

"Proceeded by waving incense burners, His Imperial
Majesty, attired in white silk communion robes, entered
the ceremonial hall with an escort of aides and clergy,
and took his place upon the Throne. The thrilling but
solemn silence gently breaks to the throaty voice of his
holiness the Abuna Kyrillos:  "Ye princes and ministers,
ye nobles and chiefs of the army, ye soldiers and people
of Ethiopia, and ye doctors and chiefs of the clergy, ye
professors and priests, look ye upon our Emperor Haile
Selassie the First, descended from the dynasty of
Menelik the First, who was born of Solomon and the
Queen of Sheba, a dynasty perpetuated without
interruption from the time of King Sehale to our times."

"Forty nine bishops and priests of this ancient Christian
country, in groups of seven, have held place for seven
days and nights in the seven corners of the National
Cathedral to chant without ceasing nine Psalms of David.
They are now joined by hundreds more. The established
Coptic Church is revered and all-powerful in Ethiopia.
This is a day when it may and does show its impressive
might and splendor.

"The Emperor, whose name is Anglicized as Power of the
Holy Trinity, before the questioning of the Abuna gives
his sacred pledge to uphold the Orthodox religion of the
Church, to support and administer the laws of the
country for the betterment of the people, to maintain the
integrity of Ethiopia, and to found schools for developing
the Spiritual and Material welfare of her subjects.

"Chanting and prayers to the God of Gods rise from a
multitude of priestly throats and reverberate from the
lofty ceiling of the Cathedral. One by one with the solemn
rites and blessings of the high Ethiopian clergy, He
received the Gold-Embroidered Scarlet Robes, the
Jeweled Sword, Imperial Gold Scepter, the Orb, the
Diamond Encrusted Ring, and two Gold Filigree Lances
in token of His position and responsibility. Following
ancient customs, as when Samuel anointed David, and
Zadok and Nathan anointed Solomon, so the Abuna
anointed His Majesty's head with oil. Seven differently
scented ointments of ancient prescription are received
on the Imperial head, brow, and shoulders. He then
concluded with the words:

"That God make this Crown a Crown of Glory. That, by
the Grace and the blessing which we have given, you
may have an Unshaken Faith and a Pure Heart, in order
that you may inherit the Crown Eternal. So be it."

The centuries seemed to have slipped suddenly
backwards into Biblical ritual.

"The assembly applauded their greeting, and the visiting
naval band played the National Anthem, while outside
cannons roared a salute of 101 guns, and cheer after
cheer came from thousands of subjects massed in the
vicinity of the Cathedral."

Ethiopia my country...my heart..my love....

Emperor Halie Selassie to be canonized as a saint

July 23, 2019
Ejersa Goro, Harar
Mulugeta Haile

“As our history ends here, yours begin, however, if you fail to lead this nation and endanger its sovereignty and
unity, then your history will stop there and ours will rise up again.” Emperor Haile Selassie The First.

For the 127th birthday of Emperor Haile Selassie, Abuna Selama, the Archbishop of the Harar region had
instructed the heads of the 53 churches in his archdiocese to hold special prayers and to speak about the
contributions of the Emperor to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Melak Sahal, chief administrator of the 53 churches, said: “The Ethiopian Orthodox Church never forgets the
Emperor’s contribution to our ancient church’s glory. Today, on his birthday, we will still talk more about his
astounding contributions.”

Melak Selam Tebebu, head of the St Trinity Church in Harar, despite his health, came out to celebrate the
Emperor’s birthday and said, “It is not we who give a testimony for the Emperor’s inputs, but his colossal and
exceptional works which they speak volumes to save our preaching.”

Jorge Mandes, who came for the occasion from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, said: “People of Harar are friendly and
warm like the Emperor’s approach to humanity. Out of humanity, the Emperor advocated for the survival of
mankind in the international arena.” Jorge Mandes, has recently built a tabernacle, ‘Selassie House’, in his home
town, Rio de Janeiro. His younger daughter, Nayana Mendes attending services at St Kidan Mehert Church in
Harar, said: “My father taught me a lot about Emperor Haile Selassie’s role in the world and I grew up with great
history of Ethiopia and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and now here I am celebrating the Emperor’s birthday in
Harar with my father.”

This morning, Melak Sebatu Bekalu, head of Ejersa Goro Church, said, “Hamlae 16(July 23) is an appropriate day
to honor the legacies of the Emperor. One day, Ejersa Goro, a birth place of the Emperor will be an international
town as the result of the Emperor’s reputation.” Priest Moges, head of Kombolcha Church, said, “Kombolcha,
Harar is a depository of the Emperor’s childhood history. A high moral ground of the Emperor was groomed
right here during his early learning period.”

SID-Ethiopia, Stand for Integrated Development Ethiopia, an NGO based in Harar sent a message to the holy
synod of the Ethiopia Orthodox Church in Addis Ababa, which stated that the Emperor’s legacies qualified him
to be canonized as a saint like King Lalibela, the 12th century Ethiopia’s leader.

It is to be noted that in 1965, the Emperor was honored by five Oriental Orthodox Churches: Egypt, Syria, India
and Armenia as a “Defender of the Faith”, similar to ‘Saint’ for his unwavering commitment being a voice of
morality which is absent in today’s world leaders. Through his guidance, the Emperor helped to bring the above
churches’ leaders around table for the first time after 431 A.D.

A long awaited debt of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church remained at large as he was the one who liberated it from
Egyptian direct rule after 1600 long years. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church gained its full independence in 1959
with the proven diplomacy skill of the Emperor. This alone meets the criteria of recognition of sainthood.

As an apostle, the Emperor expanded the Ethiopia Orthodox Church’s philosophy, the bedrock of Ethiopia-winet
in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, St.Tomas, St. Kitts, the United Virgin Islands
Bermuda, Guyana, South Africa, Sudan, and Djibouti through his messenger, Abuna Yesehaq, posthumously
called St Yesehaq by his disciples, the Jamaican Orthodox.

The Emperor inspired millions of Rastafarians throughout the world to be more Ethiopian than the Ethiopian
themselves. According to a study, the majority of Ethiopian youth today would prefer to be identified with their
ethnicities rather than Ethiopian nationality. How can one run a country without the sense of nationality? If the
western embassies in Addis Ababa offered visas, no single youth would remain in Ethiopia today. The country is
like an open prison for the youth whose mind and soul abroad, but for the Rastafarian Ethiopia is remained to
be a holy ground.

The legacies of Haile Selassie that were eclipsed for 45 years in Ethiopia have finally shined at his birthday
through the shadows of the Harar region. Despite ethnic tensions over the cloud of Ethiopia, the Emperor’s
legacies still shed light rather than shadow. History has bestowed eight vitals upon Ethiopia since the 1930s,
seven to the Emperor Haile Selassie and one to his adversaries who dragged Ethiopia first to communism and
now to tribalism.

I will leave you with the Emperor’s last prophetic statement, which he made before he forced to enter a
Volkswagen to take him to prison:

“As our history ends here, yours begin, however, if you fail to lead this nation and endanger its sovereignty and
unity, then your history will stop there and ours will rise up again.”

The birth of Haile Selassie is the birth of a Modern Ethiopia without losing the old values.

Happy 127th birthday!

Ethiopians around the world share with joy the news that our Prime Minister, Dr Abiy Ahmed
Ali, has been named the recipient of the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

The 27-year old journalist credits Abiy’s peace deal with Eritrea last year for reuniting him with his father. Like
thousands of other families they had been separated by two decades of hostility with Ethiopia’s longtime
enemy. The Award was specifically to recognize Dr Abiy’s “efforts to achieve peace and international
cooperation, and in particular his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea”.

We recognize that he took a vital step in the reconstruction not only of Ethiopia, but of our entire region of
peoples of our common family. Dr Abiy’s gesture toward restoring familial relations with Eritrea was a genuine
and spontaneous act of reconciliation between the peoples of Ethiopia and Eritrea. It was immediately
reciprocated by the Eritrean People and leadership. It was a gesture based on the restoration of justice for
individual people of our family of nations, and, as such, certainly merited recognition by the international
community.

Dr Abiy’s action restored the unity of many families, and restored hope to so many people. It was, indeed, a vital
early step in the reconstruction of the dignity, history, and mutual respect of all of the peoples of our great
family.

The Crown Council not only applauds Dr Abiy and congratulates him for the Nobel Peace Prize, but urges that
we all see this as the start of the restoration of the mutual respect with which all Ethiopians – and those of our
extended family in Eritrea, Djibouti, and the Somali peoples – greet and treat each other. We join in urging
respect for the great traditions and languages which make distinct each society of our family, knowing that we
all share a common value and identity – our Ethiopianness, formal or informal – under which we can value the
distinct pride of our various regions and their respective governments.

God Bless Prime Minister Abiy. God Bless Ethiopia.

The Caribbean and Ethiopia Must Be Beacons of Democracy
A Statement from the Crown Council of Ethiopia by its President,
His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile-Selassie

November 13, 2019


The security, stability, and prosperity of much of Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia is presently being
challenged, almost as never before, by changes occurring around the world. We must all look beyond the
immediate to do what is right for our societies and for the future of them through the next phase of history. And
we must mourn for the recent losses of innocent lives in these conflicts which defy historical reason. Our hearts
go to the grieving families.

The Crown Council of Ethiopia is not a political entity; nor does it wish to shape the will of the people. It cannot,
and would not, venture interference in the governance of Ethiopia, nor of those societies around the world
which are home to so many who value the historical role of Ethiopia and have been inspired by the millennia of
symbolism of the Solomonic Crown.

But neither would the Crown wish to be seen to be silent out of lack of care for those who look to it as a symbol
of hope, unity, and compassion and as repository of all our ethical values.

We have been approached for comment on the great upheavals which the Government has inherited inside
Ethiopia, but we can only urge our People to remember the humanity of their Fellow Ethiopians. Unity, courage
and inspiration can solve many things, and we are engaged with you, as we have been these past five decades or
so of hardship. We will never abandon the Ethiopian People: Not any one of them, regardless of language,
origins,or beliefs.

We have been approached to comment on forthcoming elections in the Caribbean, but we can only urge those
there who look to the Solomonic Crown for guidance to act with calmness, in good conscience, and with a will to
put the interests of their nation ahead of petty issues and short-term gratification. Like the People of Ethiopia, so
many of you in the Caribbean have suffered the indignity of seeing society transform through transactional
politics. But voters, too, have their part to play. You must play it. It is more than voting; it lies in preserving
dignity.

The Caribbean can be a beacon of democracy. So, too, can Ethiopia. Nobility of spirit can be achieved by us all,
and it can transform our societies. Together we can be a beacon of tolerance, and that will lead to true
prosperity and a better world.

God Bless Ethiopia, and God Bless our Brothers and Sisters in the Caribbean and around the World. His late
Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I, whom God has blessed, bound Ethiopia and the Caribbean — and the
Americas — together. Let us honor him with Peace.

"Now, as the world is falling victim to a global and indiscriminate virus and has entered into a new era of
economic dislocation, the People of Ethiopia are being challenged as never before.

And yet we shall prevail.

It seems as if the Almighty, in His Infinite Wisdom, is giving one more test to the Ethiopian People, who were
emerging from almost a half-century of suffering. We were given a moment to breathe, but only so that we could
gain strength to face the coming period.

This is our true test. We believed we had thrown off the shackles of communism and tyranny. We believed we
were set to resume the path toward true democracy. Then this new crisis beset us, and all the world.

We had been given the past two years to grasp the gift we were given: the freedom to work together as
Ethiopians, as true brothers and sisters, regardless of our region, our language, or our beliefs. Yet many of us
still had scores to settle after 44 years of communist “divide and rule” tyranny.

Now we need to set aside the bitterness of those years. We must set them aside. We are one great People, made
up of many equal clans and tribes and regions. And we will only survive this latest plague of economic and
physical hardship, and start again on the road to prosperity, if we focus on the importance of unity and discard
the small things.

We know that we can and will prevail in this new crisis. We can and will conquer not only the temporary
scourge of this virus, which has already taken its first Ethiopian lives in Ethiopia itself and in the Diaspora, but
we will come together as never before. Those we have lost to this virus, and those we are still yet lose, are
indeed martyrs who cause us to pause in humility, to cease our quarreling and come together again; in sorrow
for the lost souls and lost time, but united and proud.

Their deaths — and the sacrifices of our healthcare professionals at all levels, and all those who volunteer to
help those suffering because of this combined biological and economic virus — will not be in vain if we cease
our bickering and rejoice in our ability to make our peoples once again greater than the sum of their parts.

We have been given a great opportunity to set aside our petty differences — indeed, we have been given a wider
world view in which our differences as Ethiopians can be celebrated and respected — in order to create a new
Ethiopia which shows the world our three and a half millennia of unique strengths.

The Government has wisely attempted to introduce practical measures which will limit the spread of the
coronavirus, and to enable our healthcare professionals to show us their skills, valor, and commitment.

But what this period also gives us is time to reflect on the possibility that we can emerge from this period of
challenge, restored as a true family of Ethiopians.

This must be a time for us to innovate a new Ethiopia. We must strive to grow our own food in abundance, and
feed all Ethiopians. We must seek ways to open our internal trade so that our own food crops and manufactures
can be distributed to all corners of Ethiopia. And this must include all the members of our historical family, such
as Eritrea and Djibouti.

We must all take heart and joy in the songs and symbols of our neighbors. We must give thanks that no
Ethiopian can be set above another. And that no other people can set themselves above Ethiopians, just as we
do not wish to set ourselves over others. We must give respect to the differences of faith through which each of
us in our separate ways shows service to our Creator. And it is time for us to pray together.

No land has greater opportunity than Ethiopia. No people has a history deeper and richer than Ethiopia. We
have each other to share and celebrate our triumphs — and there will be triumphs to come — just as we have
each other to strengthen us through our trials.

In all of this, the Crown of Ethiopia is only a symbol of your greatness, your potential, your strength, and your
compassion.

It is yours.

God Bless You, and God Bless Ethiopia."

Church Haile Selassie I ~ 22 April 2020

It is with great sadness, but faith of eternal life, that The Church of Haile Selassie I (CHSI) notify you of the
ascension of the Honourable Archbishop, Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe on April 20, 2020. We extend our
deepest condolences to his family, friends, brothers and sisters of the Rastafarian faith, and the global
community. Archbishop Ammanuel Foxe was a Rastafarian activist for more than fifty years, steering
Rastafarian developments globally. During that time he served as the International President for the Imperial
Ethiopian World Federation INC, formerly known as the Ethiopian World Federation (EWF), and the Abuna of
the Church of Haile Selassie I, a global institution.

The Abuna was instrumental in getting the Mother Church (Jamaica) recognised as a religious institution
through the Investing Act 2013, after seventeen years of debates in the Jamaican parliament to pass the bill.
Prior accomplishments in this area included obtaining charitable status for the Church in England, 2004.
Amongst his other notable achievements were establishing a community health clinic and the King Ahma
Selassie Basic School in downtown Kingston, Jamaica.

Throughout the entire period of the Abuna’s public life, he acted with integrity as a devoted and selfless
advocate in pursuance of political representation for Rastafarians and grassroots people.

For his lifelong dedication and service to the people of Ethiopia, the Abuna was awarded Commander of the
Imperial Order of the Star of Ethiopia - one of the highest decorations given under the crown of Ethiopia. We are
comforted in knowing that the Abuna fulfilled his duties to the Rastafarian and grassroots people, and most
importantly to the Almighty Emperor Haile Selassie I. We are assured that history shall preserve his name. May
Jah grant him a place of rest continually. Amen!

It is with great sadness, but faith of eternal life, that The Church of Haile Selassie I (CHSI) notify
you of the ascension of the Honourable Archbishop, Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe on April 20,
2020.  

The Church of Haile Selassie I extends our deepest condolences to his family, friends, brothers
and sisters of the Rastafarian faith, and the global community.

Archbishop Ammanuel Foxe was a Rastafarian activist for more than fifty years, steering
Rastafarian developments and advancements globally. During that time he served as the
International President for the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation INC, formerly known as the
Ethiopian World Federation (EWF), and the Abuna (Archbishop) of the Church of Haile Selassie I,
a global institution.

Abuna Ammanuel Foxe, (affectionately known as ‘Abuna’) was instrumental in the establishment
of an international body of The Church of Haile Selassie I with membership in Jamaica, England,
USA, Barbados and Trinidad.  The Abuna was instrumental in the Mother Church (Jamaica) being
recognized as a religious institution through the passage of the Church of Haile Selassie I
(Incorporation and Vesting) Act, 2013, after seventeen years of debates in the Jamaican
parliament to pass the bill.

A visionary and a man commissioned by both Emperor Haile Selassie I and his son King Ahma
Selassie I of Ethiopia to organize the Rastafarian movement in Jamaica and the western
hemisphere towards the liberation of Ethiopia from Communist ideals and the restoration of the
Davidic Monarchy and Dynasty of Emperor Haile Selassie I,   Abuna Foxe has always championed
the involvement of Rastafarians in the political process.  

Other accomplishments in this area include; the organizing of two political campaigns for
Rastafarians in Jamaica to contest a general election, instituting a Rastafarian Prison Ministry
whereby Priests and Levites of The Church of Haile Selassie I visits, worships with and stand up
for the religious rights of Rastafarians incarcerated in Jamaica’s prisons and Rastafarians
incarcerated in the prisons of the State of New York, where he was a Rastafarian Chaplain for
nearly twenty years.  In addition he was able to obtain charitable status for the Church of Haile
Selassie I in England, 2004.  

Amongst his other notable achievements were establishing the Ahma Selassie I Basic School,
annual health fairs and a community health clinic in downtown Kingston, Jamaica.

He was also identified by the Crown Council of Ethiopia (monarchy in exile) as a member of the
Council responsible for communication and liaison of Rastafarians issues to the Council. He was
instrumental in ensuring that an official Jamaican government State Visit was given to Prince
Ermias Haile Selassie I on April 21 2016, grandson of Emperor Haile I and President of the Crown
Council of Ethiopia (monarchy In exile), on the commemoration of the fiftieth (50th) anniversary
of Emperor Haile Selassie I, visit to Jamaica on April 21, 1966.

Throughout the entire period of the Abuna’s public life, he acted with integrity as a devoted and
selfless advocate in pursuance of political and religious representation for Rastafarians and
grassroots people internationally.

For his lifelong dedication and service to the people of Ethiopia, the Abuna was awarded
Commander of the Imperial Order of the Star of Ethiopia - one of the highest decorations given
by the Crown of Ethiopia.

We are comforted in knowing that the Abuna fulfilled his duties to the Rastafarian and grassroots
people, and most importantly to his commitment and faith in the Almighty God Emperor Haile
Selassie I.

We are assured that history shall preserve his name and accomplishments.

May Jah grant him a place of rest in his abode continually! Amen! Amen! Amen!

Rastas want activist buried in Heroes Park

Christopher Graham (left) and Junior Anderson are advocating for one of their Rastafarian role models to be
buried in National Heroes Park.

Members of the Rastafarian community are advocating for the late Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe to be
respectfully laid to rest at National Heroes Park.

Foxe, who led countless campaigns for the rights of Rastafarians, died in the US on April 20. He had been
undergoing a series of treatments for a while.

After passing away six days before his 84th birthday, his body was transported back to Jamaica.

"Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe was the international president of the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation
(IEWF). He was also the overseer of the Church of Haile Selassie. Him build five churches in Jamaica, London,
America, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. He's the man weh fight fi the liberation of Ethiopia," Christopher
Graham, priest of the Church of Haile Selassie, told THE STAR.

Foxe had been a Rastafarian activist for more than 50 years. As a result, his brethren believe that he needs to be
buried at National Heroes Park, something they believe would constitute a respectful send-off.

THINGS WEH HIM ACCOMPLISH
"Him carry Jamaican government to the Supreme Court fi establish Rastafarianism as a religion and win. He
established Haile Selassie basic school, a wellness centre and other institutions. The things weh him accomplish
in Jamaica and worldwide for the Rastafarian community, he deserve that honour. Abuna was instrumental in
stopping the discrimination against Rasta," Graham added.

In 1995, Foxe was given the Meritorious Service Award from the Church of Haile Selassie for his international
ambassadorship.

Junior Anderson, first vice-president of the IEWF Incorporated, says burying Foxe anywhere other than Heroes
Park would be an affront.

"Other people who have had less contributions have been buried there. His contribution to Jamaica is profound.
It would be disrespectful if he doesn't get this honour," Anderson said. "We have written a letter to the prime
minister, (culture minister) Olivia 'Babsy' Grange, and also to Mark Golding, former minister of justice."

Graham said that if Foxe is not buried in the park, he would see it as a form of religious and political
discrimination.

"Them never give him no recognition before ... he got no form of recognition while he was alive. And historically,
no other man in Jamaica do weh him do," he said.

Grange confirmed to THE STAR that she received a letter from the Church of Haile Selassie, and "I'm about to
respond to them".

Ethiopia Announces Arrests in Prominent Singer’s Killing
The shooting last month of Hachalu Hundessa, a hero to young Ethiopians calling for reform, was followed by
unrest in which hundreds of people were killed.
By Abdi Latif Dahir
July 11, 2020

Ethiopia has said that two men have been arrested in connection with the killing of Hachalu Hundessa, a well-
known musician and activist whose death last month was followed by unrest in which hundreds were killed.

Attorney General Adanech Abebe announced the arrests in a televised statement on Friday night, saying that a
third suspect in Mr. Hundessa’s shooting was still on the run. “We will continue to uphold the rule of law,” Ms.
Abebe said.

She said the two men arrested had confessed to killing Mr. Hundessa, acting on the orders of an armed splinter
wing of the Oromo Liberation Front, an opposition group, with the goal of inciting ethnic tension and
overthrowing the government. She provided no evidence for the claim, and the Oromo Liberation Front had yet
to respond to the accusation as of Saturday morning.

Mr. Hundessa, 34, was shot on June 29 in a suburb of the capital, Addis Ababa. He was taken to a hospital but
died of his wounds.

The singer and activist was a member of Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, the Oromo, who have long been
marginalized despite their numbers. His songs of resistance made him a hero to a generation of young people
struggling for political and economic change.

After his death, violent protests broke out in Addis Ababa and the neighboring Oromia region. Officials said that
at least 239 people had been killed in the unrest, during which buildings were burned and groups of young men
carried out ethnically motivated attacks.

The government blocked the internet and arrested nearly 5,000 people, including activists, journalists and a
prominent critic of the government, Jawar Mohammed. Tensions also escalated when the police blocked
mourners from attending Mr. Hundessa’s funeral in his hometown, Ambo, 60 miles west of the capital.

The violence has posed a challenge to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who is overseeing Ethiopia’s delicate
transition from authoritarian rule to multiparty democracy.

Mr. Hundessa’s music provided a soundtrack to a wave of antigovernment protests that began in 2015, which
eventually led to the resignation of the prime minister at the time, Hailemariam Desalegn, and the rise of Mr.
Abiy, an Oromo himself.

Since taking office in 2018, Mr. Abiy has introduced widespread political, economic and social overhauls,
including amnesty for political prisoners and the legalization of banned opposition groups. He was awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize last year for such measures, and for restarting peace talks with neighboring Eritrea.

But the changes brought about by Mr. Abiy have also lifted the lid on serious challenges to his government. He
has faced criticism from members of the Oromo community who say he has not done enough to alleviate their
problems.

Mr. Abiy recently said that those who had killed Mr. Hundessa wanted to cause civil unrest and derail progress
in Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populous nation, after Nigeria. In a statement after the attorney general’s
announcement, Mr. Abiy’s office asked members of the public for help in tracking down the third suspect and
said that the government was committed to the overhauls.

Last week, hundreds of Oromo residents of Minnesota gathered in St. Paul to condemn Mr. Hundessa’s killing.
Representative Ilhan Omar said on Twitter that she would “do everything in my power to ensure that the United
States helps pursue justice for the killing of Hachalu Hundessa.”

Office of the Prime Minster

Kingston 10

13th June 2020

An open letter to the Prime Minster of Jamaica
(His Excellency The Right Honourable Andrew Holness)

Dear Honourable Prime Minster

Greeting in the name of the Might of the Trinity, Emperor Haile Selassie 1st, One God. Amen.
The Church of Haile Selassie I (CHSI) London, in support of the other international branches and Mother Church
in Jamaica, is making a humble request of you, Mr Holness.

This request of you, in your Right as the Honorable Prime Minister, is that you may see it Right to give consent
for brother Ascento Ammanuel Foxe (Archbishop Abuna Ammanuel) to be granted a place of rest in the National
Heroes Park.

As you are undoubtedly aware, Abuna Foxe was the Archbishop of the Church of Haile Selassie I and also the
International President of the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Incorporated Political Party (IEWFIPP).
Needless for us to waste valuable space and time highlighting the track record of this man, which can instantly
be acquired from your database. I would rather use the space to focus on why this requirement could be seen as
a matter of national interests.

In this case, here, we are not talking about an ordinary ‘Rasta Camp, group or organisation leader’, that when
they pass on their membership may, in most cases, disperse or cease to function. Here, we are talking about a
figure that is an extraordinary Rasta leader. A man who is renowned for his works as a Rasta activist, both
locally and internationally. Abuna Foxe has established religious institutions in the developing and developed
world’s capital cities, the likes of Bridge Town (Barbados), London and the state of New York; bringing the eyes
of the democratically free world on Jamaica and also putting Jamaica under the scope of the New World, as we
know it. Other branches of the Church are also established in the Caribbean.

Jamaica, in this matter, will be under the watchful eyes of the international community, Rastafarians globally
and people of the Ethiopian/Afrikan Diaspora. The Jamaican grassroots populace which includes those of upper-
class upbringing which are Rasta sympathisers and last, but not least, the people of the constituency of Western
Kingston; from whence rose up the strongest influence and leaders in the early emergence of the Rasta Faith
and Movement. This is where our beloved Brother Ascento Foxe grew up.

These, Mr Prime Minister, are the eyes of the people who love justice and hate aggression. They are looking and
listening to hear from the Honourable Prime Minister of Jamaica, a just decision that can be celebrated and
remembered in history by the masses, today and in the foreseeable future.

Mr Prime Minster, again, here we are talking about a man who has made meaningful contributions to his
community and the Jamaican populace at large, in the areas of Religion, Education, Health and Politics. A figure
that has, over decades, championed the rights of the oppressed and grassroots people. He has been joined by
the Honourable Lord Gifford, the Honourable Howard Hamilton, with voices of support from government and
opposition members of parliament; and achieved victory in the struggle for 1. A Bill for the Incorporation of the
Church of Haile Selassie 1 (the battle lasted seventeen years before being passed by the Jamaican Parliament,
28th November 2013) and 2. Mr Hamilton, in his Office as Public Defender supported Rastafarians to gain
religious representations in the Jamaican penal system.

Again, here is a figure that has made another historical landmark in being the architect of the first
Rastafarian/Grassroots political party (IEWFIPP) which collectively contested both local and general elections,
for more than a decade and will continue to do so.

Archbishop Ammanuel Foxe was instrumental in the historic visit of H.I.H. Prince Ermias to Jamaica,
commemorating the 50th Anniversary of His Imperial Majesty’s Emperor Haile Selassie 1st visit to Jamaica, in
1966. As President of the Crown council of Ethiopia, Prince Ermias awarded Abuna Ammanuel Foxe the
Commander of the Imperial Order of the Star of Ethiopia (please see attached).

Mr Prime Minister, before you came to the front of the bench, you were there as a young man in your party, that
bears witness to many of the things which are said here. In fact, maybe more than what is said here about this
man, a ‘Son of the Soil’ and an integral part of the richest fabric of Ethiopian/Jamaican culture and indigenous
belief.

The eyes of the world have seen that Jamaica has shown recognition to our beloved brother Dennis Brown, for
his work as an ambassador of reggae music (Jamaican Culture) and granted him a place of rest in the National
Heroes Park.

We believe that the same eyes are watching along with the eyes of the grassroots people: to see whether
government and opposition will make a responsible decision in respect of national interests; to grant this
‘Champion of Jamaica’, both at home and abroad, to be accorded a burial of honour in the National Heroes Park.
Mr Prime Minister, Jamaican democracy is on trial in this particular case and time that will constitute part of our
Jamaican history.

The aforementioned EYES Sir, are your jurors and God Himself is the Judge.

It may not be an easy decision for you as a Prime Minister, that is very unlikely to have the support of a Rasta
voice, within your cabinet. However, we believe, Mr Prime Minister, that among you there will be Rasta
sympathisers and we also believe ‘that’ Mr Holness is your majority.

The Church of Haile Selassie I, today appeals to a leader that in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic peak, in
giving reassurance to his people, spoke of God. We speak of God (call him what name you will, still, it is One God
for us All). Further, to consolidate this statement, we quote from His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie
1st during His speech at the opening of the Eritrean parliament in 1955 “Christianity and Islam are not the only
two religions in the world, there are others and each speak of God.”

May Almighty God guide you in your judgement regarding this matter. We would be grateful for an appointment
to discuss this matter of paramount importance, at your earliest convenience.

Correspondence can be sent to 29 Oxford Street Kingston or email: himchurchhqja@yahoo.com.

Yours sincerely,


Brother Leroy Lindsay
Abbot Eliah

Reconciliation, and the Restoration of Prosperity, Equality, and Hope

A Statement from the Crown Council of Ethiopia by its President,
His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile-Selassie

July 3, 2020


On behalf of the Crown Council, I extend my sincere and deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Hachalu
Hundessa, a revered singer in Ethiopia. Mr. Hundessa has graced Ethiopia with his music, demonstrated is love
for his Oromo culture and continuously challenged us to evaluate the value of unity. His senseless killing has
profoundly affected people in Ethiopia and in the Diaspora.

At a time when the entire world is dealing with turmoil stemming from social dysfunctions in addition to the
global health crisis which has shaken economies and developmental efforts for the wellbeing of nations, we now
have to mourn the death of another courageous man. Hate crimes have erupted in all societies, benefiting only
the forces of destruction and instilling fear as well as instabilities.

It is time for us to reconcile our differences. It is our moment in history for each of us to become a voice of
reason to the unreasonable, and work towards fulfilling the hopes of our forefathers and mothers to develop
Ethiopia and address the challenges of the youth.

Revisionism is a dangerous approach. Our youth have not benefited from historical education which not only
would have highlighted how Ethiopia’s resisted foreign attempts to conquer our society, and how she showed
her strength as a unified country to lead Africa and set an example to the world. Ethiopia’s greatness was never
based on ethnicity. It has always been about the spirit our family of nations embodies; the culture it embraces
and traditions it celebrates.

On June 30, 2020  (23 ሰኔ 2012), the destruction in Cannizaro Park, Wimbledon, in London, of His Imperial
Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I’s iconic statue, and the tearing down of the statue of the Emperor’s father —
and a great 19th Century Ethiopian leader in his own right — Ras Makonnen, in Harar, confirms the concerns of
our ancestors.

Ethiopians at home and in the Diaspora have witnessed an eruption of racism and ideological hatred against our
own heritage with the wanton and deliberate destruction of statues of two historical figures who gave hope,
prosperity, and unity to all Ethiopians. Have we forgotten that Oromo pioneers such as Taddasaa Biru, Jaagamaa
Keello, Waqejira Serda, Dawit Abdi and Major Qadida Guremeysa all stood on the side of the Emperor and
remained politically involved with him throughout their life?

When, on June 29, 2020, radical Oromo separatists utilized the tragic murder of the famous Oromo singer, Mr.
Hachalu Hundessa, it affirmed the disruptors’ aim of halting our peaceful progress as well as dismantling the
Prime Minister Abiy’s Government efforts. The destruction of these statues seeks only the demise of our
diversity and demonstrates blind hatred. In pursuit of a divisive political and ethnocentric agenda, our
aggressors are working tirelessly to stifle our interwoven strength and break our long-standing foundation.

The murder of Mr. Hachalu Hundessa, who had the right to speak freely and stand for his rights, has sparked
greater violence, with the deaths of more than 100 people in subsequent riots. The radicals who used the
excuse of secessionism and extremist ideology to attack the symbols of Ethiopia’s unity did not honor Mr.
Hundessa; they defiled him by propagating hatred. In defense of Ethiopia’s sovereignty, we should remember
Ras Abebe Aregai, Defense Minster Fitawory HabteGiorgis, General Mulugeta Buli and all the countless Oromo
soldiers who stood as one nation in Battles such as the Battle of Adwa as well as the Battle of Machew. Let’s
preserve the pride and integrity of our unity. These ethnically-motivated secessionists, supported and financed
for many years by foreign governments, have become the enemy of Oromo’s progress, not the champions of
Oromo greatness.

Historians know that our great unifiers, Emperor Haile Selassie I and Ras Makonnen along with many other
leaders, have been beacons of reconciliation and unity. The radicals who tore down the statues did so knowing
that the great motivation of Emperor Haile Selassie was to end ethnic and regional inequality in Ethiopia. Both
the Emperor and Ras Makonnen were known for elevating Oromo People as other ethnic people in the territory
of Ethiopia, ensuring that they would be a vital and equal part of the greater Ethiopian dream. They brought the
Oromo into the heart of the Ethiopian society, and I am living proof, as is the Prime Minister, and so many
others. Destroying their legacies and aspirations for Ethiopia will not erase their grandeur.

We must be able to forgive one another for our forefathers’ perceived wrongdoing. We must be able to reconcile
our differences, as our shortcomings will be the greatest hurdles for our children. The world is not the same as it
was in the time of the Emperor and his Father. Many things are changing and the 21st Century will affect the
fundamentals of our existence. We must all overcome this crude belligerence, and this insult to our knowledge
and dignity. We are capable of progress with our ability to act as a unified family of proud cultures and peoples.

The death of Mr. Hachalu Hundessa must be addressed transparently through judicial channels, and the
murderers brought to justice in open trial. I am pleading to elders, mothers and fathers, and all Ethiopians to
extend your reach and to work towards forgiveness. We must march towards hope, prosperity, and dignity.

A country, with its nation at home and abroad, mourns Mr. Hundessa’s untimely death as it has awakened us to
the reality of our growing pains. We hope to build forward as one nation recognizing and valuing our culture,
history and traditions.

Let us stand for reconciliation and forgiveness. Let us build a foundation of hope, prosperity, and dignity for our
children.

God Bless You, and God Bless Ethiopia.

Greetings Rastafarian People, Brethren and Sistren, and those who Love Justice and hate aggression,  
The Church of Haile Selassie I will be holding its annual service in recognition of the 90th anniversary when
Negus Tafari Makonnen ascended the royal throne of King David and King Solomon as His Imperial Majesty
Emperor Haile Selassie I and elevated as the Might and the 1st Power of the Trinity.  For Rastafarians this is the
moment in time of Transfiguration, when God began walking amongst man and woman on earth.

"The first and the important call of the church to the believer is "come and see"; That is always the church
invitation. It is the call of the LORD. (John 1:47) Come and see what we do, who do we serve when we assemble
together in the house of God, to be the Church in the common worship of God."
#Bless!

Jens Kmp ~ Ethiopians for Constitutional Monarchy ~ 2 November 2020

The 2nd November remarks the 90th jubilee of the coronation of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I as
Ethiopias King of Kings and Her Imperial Majesty Menen  . We honor H.I.M. who sits upon the throne of
Solomon. Defender of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewadeho Faith and Church. Glory and majesty, may God bless
our beloved emperor forever and may God bless our beloved Mamaland Ethiopia.

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him
shall the gathering of the people be. Selah

"As Sunday, November 2, dawned clear, all in Addis Ababa began to prepare for the impressive event of the
morning. The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah and his Empress have just completed a night of prayer and
devotion at the most high altar within. Through the early morning the chanting of praises continued,
accompanied by the dancing of the priests with their great pulsating drums, the whole suggestive of the Ancient
Jewish rites which were in use at the time of King David danced before the Ark of the Covenant.

"Proceeded by waving incense burners, His Imperial Majesty, attired in white silk communion robes, entered
the ceremonial hall with an escort of aides and clergy, and took his place upon the Throne. The thrilling but
solemn silence gently breaks to the throaty voice of his holiness the Abuna Kyrillos:

"Ye princes and ministers, ye nobles and chiefs of the army, ye soldiers and people of Ethiopia, and ye doctors
and chiefs of the clergy, ye professors and priests, look ye upon our Emperor Haile Selassie the First, descended
from the dynasty of Menelik the First, who was born of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, a dynasty perpetuated
without interruption from the time of King Sehale to our times."

"Forty nine bishops and priests of this ancient Christian country, in groups of seven, have held place for seven
days and nights in the seven corners of the National Cathedral to chant without ceasing nine Psalms of David.
They are now joined by hundreds more. The established Coptic Church is revered and all-powerful in Ethiopia.
This is a day when it may and does show its impressive might and splendor.

"The Emperor, whose name is Anglicized as Power of the Holy Trinity, before the questioning of the Abuna gives
his sacred pledge to uphold the Orthodox religion of the Church, to support and administer the laws of the
country for the betterment of the people, to maintain the integrity of Ethiopia, and to found schools for
developing the Spiritual and Material welfare of her subjects.

"Chanting and prayers to the God of Gods rise from a multitude of priestly throats and reverberate from the lofty
ceiling of the Cathedral. One by one with the solemn rites and blessings of the high Ethiopian clergy, He received
the Gold-Embroidered Scarlet Robes, the Jeweled Sword, Imperial Gold Scepter, the Orb, the Diamond Encrusted
Ring, and two Gold Filigree Lances in token of His position and responsibility. Following ancient customs, as
when Samuel anointed David, and Zadok and Nathan anointed Solomon, so the Abuna anointed His Majesty's
head with oil. Seven differently scented ointments of ancient prescription are received on the Imperial head,
brow, and shoulders. He then concluded with the words:

"That God make this Crown a Crown of Glory. That, by the Grace and the blessing which we have given, you may
have an Unshaken Faith and a Pure Heart, in order that you may inherit the Crown Eternal. So be it."
The centuries seemed to have slipped suddenly backwards into Biblical ritual.

"The assembly applauded their greeting, and the visiting naval band played the National Anthem, while outside
cannons roared a salute of 101 guns, and cheer after cheer came from thousands of subjects massed in the
vicinity of the Cathedral."
