Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo church passed a decision to open several training centers in many languages in the country.
The Church has faced a mountainous problem since the new prime minister come to power in April 2018. Since then several churches put on fire and followers being killed.
In the last week’s mob attack in Oromia region, at least 70 people have been killed and churches turned into ashes.
On the other hand, Oromo ethnic extremists wanted to split the church by creating a language division.
Supported by Jawar Mohammed and his station OMN, Oromo extremists campaigns against the church for several months saying Ethiopian Orthodox Church does not belong to the Oromo.
Today on Monday, November 4, 2019, the Synod agreed and decided to establish training institutions in many languages as possible in all regions.
The institutions help the Church to maintain its followers that have challenges of communicating in other languages.
