Kenya bans child adoption by foreign nationals
The majority of Ethiopia’s population of more than 100 million people belong to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church
The Orthodox Church in Ethiopia has urged the federal government to prevent a breakaway by a group of its clergy in the populous Oromia region, the private Reporter newspaper reports.
The group seeking to break away, led by Belai Mekonnen, is unhappy that the Orthodox Church conducts it services in Amharic, Ethiopia’s official working language.
The group of clergy led by Father Belai wants church masses to be held in Afaan Oromo, which is spoken by the Oromo community, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group.
