Following a widespread alms boycott by Ethiopian Orthodox Christians, the illegitimate synod presided by Tagay Gebremedhin (formerly Abune Paulos) has decided to destroy the statue he recently built for himself in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.
Although Tagay Gebremedhin and his cadres are trying to give a different spin to the decision to thorn down the statue, sources in Addis Ababa who are close to the Church told Ethiopian Review that the real reason is economics — churchgoers across the country simply refused to give donations. In some areas, church administrators were forced to make people pay for holy water.
