Greetings Brothers and Sisters, One God, The Power of the Trinity –His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I

From the moment we are born and throughout our life we are governed by politics. Politics governs: the food we eat,
the clothes we wear, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the medicine we take, the  vaccination our babies are
given, the education our children receive, the mind of the mentally unstable, the institutionalisation of the young
men/women in the penal system and where ones are laid to rest.

Although the Rastafarian People make up a sizeable percentage of the Jamaican population, they have no political
representation, and as such have no voice in the Upper House - the Senate or the Lower House - House of
Representatives.

We must be courageous to change the things that we can change.

Please support Ammanuel Ascento Foxe, Commander of the Order of the Star of Ethiopia, as Senator in Jamaica
Parliament to represent Rastafarian people and all conscientious people in Jamaica.

Please visit the Church’s website at
www.himchurch.org and leave your name and email address to support this
application.

One Love
Haile Selassie I Liveth!

The Crown Council of Ethiopia Congratulates Abiy Ahmed on his appointment as Prime Minister of
Ethiopia
Congratulations to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed

A Statement from the Crown Council of Ethiopia by its President,

His Imperial Highness Prince Ermias Sahle-Selassie Haile-Selassie

Washington, DC: April 4, 2018

The Crown Council warmly congratulates Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali on his appointment as Prime Minister of Ethiopia.
His appointment, and the peaceful and stable transfer of authority in our country, reflects a returning
optimism, maturity, and tolerance in our political and social systems.

Dr Abiy’s appointment comes at an opportune moment for him to lead our country toward a return to being a
peaceful, stable, and unified Nation. We are confident that Prime Minister Abiy will, despite the enormous
challenges he faces, make headway with his vision to bring about unity, reconciliation, stability, and economic
rejuvenation.

The Ethiopian Parliament must also be recognized for ensuring a peaceful transition of power, and for choosing
an able candidate who can lead Ethiopia and a young generation to achieve greatness for our country and
region.

The Prime Minister’s inaugural speech was important for its heartfelt call for a restoration of Ethiopia’s
historical identity, and for the engagement of opposition groups and Ethiopians in the diaspora. We pray that,
together with the support of the Ethiopian People and his Administration, Prime Minister Abiy will bring about
the necessary reforms, unity of purpose, and civility among our many great peoples and cultures which the
Ethiopian people so earnestly desire.

Long live Ethiopia.

"Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s Rousing Acceptance Speech During Swearing In Ceremony"
FB Post by Ethiopians for Constitutional Monarchy
3 April at 04:56
Yesterday marks a historic day in Ethiopian life. Abiy Ahmed (Ph.D.) was sworn into the highest executive
office of the government. He is newly the chief executive of government, chairman of the council of ministers
and commander in chief of the Ethiopian armed forces.

The ceremony began with the Council of Ministers, parliament members, religious leaders and all present
standing for the Ethiopian national anthem. Following this, speaker of the house Abadula Gemdeda took to the
podium and announced the agenda of the day. Abadula Gemdeda, who recently returned from resignation, gave
Shiferaw Shegute, head of the office of the EPRDF council the podium. Shiferaw Shegute made the
announcement that millions have been eagerly awaiting all weekend.

Shiferaw Shegute then gave a short bio Abiy Ahmed in which he covered briefly his birth and that he is a father
of three children. Shiferaw Shegute also gave a rundown of the new Prime Minister’s academic and professional
qualifications.

Shortly thereafter, Dagne Melaku, President of the Federal Supreme Court of Ethiopia guided the 41 one-year-
old lieutenant colonel and technocrat through the oath of office. Loud applause came from the audience which
according to a recent article had amongst it invitees from the opposition party, in a bid for inclusiveness..
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed then proceeded to give an awe-inspiring and enlivening speech after expressing
gratitude for the special honor of addressing the Speaker of the House and others.

“Honorable Speaker of the House, honored members of the House of Representatives, honored citizens of our
country,” began Abiy Ahmed. He thanked all for the special honor he felt for speaking on this occasion and got
right down to the business of leading the nation through outlining a vision and raising morale.

He expressed respect towards former Haile Mariam Desalgn for believing that a new leadership was a better
option and wanting to be part of the solution for the political crisis of recent years. He thanked him especially
for his key role in the peaceful transition of power. Similarly, he also thanked all who took part in this process.

The man many in Africa are hailing as the continent’s youngest leader then said it was a historical day for
Ethiopia. We have missed opportunities to begin a new chapter in our country in the past, and this is yet
another one, he said.

In line with his appreciation for those that went before him he then thanked the countless patriots, scholars
and young change agents of the past. He characterized Ethiopia as a fertile womb which has brought forth
generations who have toiled with determination in a high spirit of love of country. Following this, he outlined
three very key priorities for which stalwart Ethiopians are struggling for now and in the recent past.

-Returning Ethiopia to her past greatness
-Preserving the Justice and Peace of her people
-Bringing equitable prosperity to all citizens
“For this Ethiopians here and around the world are raising their voices, devising arguments engaging in
discussion,” he added.

Abiy Ahmed’s speech displayed an organized bias for action.

“Next, two things are shown through this peaceful transition of power at such a crucial junction. Firstly, the
power transition shows that there is a strong and stable constitutional base that is inclusive. Secondly, it shows
that an order is being built that puts the people in charge and addressed the most current and political realities.


“The time is one in which we learn from our mistakes and make it up to our people.” Here the new prime
minister uses the strong Amharic Mekas. Making amends to the people is a core priority set by the Prime
Minister in this acceptance speech and a reoccurring theme throughout.

At this junction, he says that EPRDF has held fast to its developmental democracy policy through which it has
built a constitutional and federal structure that has brought about foundational changes.

“The world is looking at us on one side with eagerness, admiration on one side and on the other with grave
concern,” he adds, as he transitions to the issues related to the unprecedented unrest of recent years. He
acknowledges the numerous successes that Ethiopia has achieved and yet adds that ‘many of our shortcomings
must be urgently dealt with.’

He reiterates that we must learn from our mistakes and move forward. The issue of main importance is to
transition our country to a higher level and consistently ensuring our unity as a nation.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s Words Of Encouragement To the Nation:

Immediately following this the young prime minister gives words of encouragement to the nation. Ethiopians
do not falter and accept defeat due to temporary problems, rather they transform challenges into opportunities
and achieve victory.

A Rousing Message of Ethiopian Unity:

“Yesterday our fathers in Metema in Adwa and in Maecho broke their bones and shed their blood to preserve
Ethiopian unity and honor. We are blessed. We have a beautiful country and a proud history. We know our
roots. Our unity can be an example to the world, it has bought its enemies to its knees. We are an exemplar of
the freedom fighting.”

Part of this prime minister’s meteoric rise can be attributed to his moving oratory about unity and
reconciliation. Here he shines brightly in this respect. In very appealing Amharic he expresses the sentiment of
millions: we are inextricably linked and cannot be separated.

The Amhara has fought for Ethiopian sovereignty in Caramara and being buried there, became part of that land.
The Tigray has given his neck rather than relinquish Metema and became mixed with the land. The Oromo has
revealed his chest on the mountains of Adwa for his country’s sovereignty and mingled with the soil of Adwa.
The same applies to Somalia, the Sidama, the Benshangul, Kembata, Hadiya and all the other ethnicities, he
adds.

The prime minister summed up in quoting an Ethiopian elder who has said, “We are Ethiopians as far as we are
alive and become Ethiopia upon our passing from this earth.”

He continues to say that differences of ideas is not a curse. Conversely, it can bring strength, the clash of ideas
bring solutions. Unity builds a nation. Saying I will die unless my idea prevails will ruin not only a country but
even a household.

“ We Ethiopians need democracy and freedom. We have a right to it.”

Democracy is not a foreign import. It has existed in the Gada system long before developed countries
elsewhere.

Our constitution has given acknowledgment to this and we must translate this appropriately into action.
“Citizens rights must be fully enforced,” he added.

Prime Minster Abiy Ahmed then stressed that Medmamet is integral to a democratic structure. This can be
translated severally as consultation, listening avidly to other’s views or empathic listening. Dissent and
diverging viewpoints must be entertained, according to Ethiopia’s new head of state.

“We must increase our effort in the struggle to build a democratic nation,” he said, making clear that this is at
the core of his mission, and a main priority for his government in the days and months to come. He outlined
what he means by this in explicit terms.

Government is a servant of the people. In a democratic government, the first and last policy is allowing the
difference of ideas. All voices must be heard.

Building a democracy means freedom of expression. The government has to be tolerant in this respect, here the
prime minister uses a hard to translate term hode sefi. This indicates compassion and ability to overlook faults.

Much of this speech focuses on his commitment to democracy and justice. Rule of law is another important
theme. Here, he stresses that it must not just be the enforcing of dry laws but also the rise of a spirit of justice.

The political upheaval and the many intricacies of the Horn of Africa were raised as yet another opportunity
rather than simply a problem. Abiy Ahmed (Ph.D.) stated that Ethiopia must live up to its rich history as a
leading force in the Pan African movement.

An End to Disagreement with Eritrea and a Readiness to Solve Differences

"Corruption Among the Major Causes of Unprecedented Protests"

In no doubtful terms, the new head of state said there is no justification for undue gain and made a pledge to
fight corruption night and day.

"Spread of Education a Success But Will Go To Waste Unless Coupled with an absolutely determined effort for
Quality"

We must work with absolute determination to increase quality from the lowest level to that of the University
and higher learning.

Another action item that was identified was to evaluate the Growth and Transformation execution for the past
two years and work to bring about the fast transformation.

" Dear Youth of Ethiopia"

Ethiopia is yours. The coming years are yours. You must work at the forefront to build Ethiopia. The question
of the youth is not just that of economic and equal participation. It is also one of democracy and justice. There
are gaps in the spread of economic benefits amongst citizens, as well as growth social justice and political
participation.

Even if it is known that our economy is growing, this growth has not met the changing needs of the youth. We
understand that our people are dissatisfied for this reason. Our country can go nowhere without the youth.
Ethiopia has to give hope for its youth, and not cause the loss of hope. I promise that we will do all we can along
these lines.

We will work to create abundant young investors and create a just social and economic structure. The truth we
must not forget is that the key engine for growth is the youth themselves.

In a similar fashion then prime minister addresses the following groups.

-Dear Women of Ethiopia
-Dear Diaspora.
-Dear Tefokakari Parties

Once again he calls on the whole nation to bring a developed democracy, to end racisms and tribalism, to create
an educated and rational citizen.

“Let us continue is the unity that showed us to build the historic dam”, he said.

"Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Very Emotional Thanks Giving for his Mother Abiy thanks his mother and his wife
first lady Zinash Tayachew"

When I was just a seven-year-old boy the woman that knew I would stand in front of you on this day and
implanted a deep vision in my heart. She is among the sincere innocent and good Ethiopians. Although she is
no longer with us I want to thank her with all my heart.

Our Ethiopian mothers have a huge role in the future. And to gain the fruits tomorrow they must play a role
today.Mother’s have an invaluable role in creating the children who can contribute to future.

He deeply thanks his wife Zinash Tayachew who his wife and the new first lady of Ethiopia. Then he thanks his
friends and comrades and says are his strength during hardship.

He ends in his speech by saying “May God bless Ethiopia.”

The speech was received with a passionate standing ovation.

Rastafarian Holy Days
~~~
7a
 
Rastafarians have many days that are celebrated and recognized; 5 days amongst many, which are
considered  special and sacred are:
 
Earthday (Earthstrong)
The date in which we are given life to serve our God in the image in which we are created; to serve with all our
mind, heart, and soul.
May 5th (5th of Miyaza) - “Fasika” (Passover)
This day represents a major Holy Day with service.  After service, family day celebration starts with the playing
of Rasta Music (e.g., Reggae) with refreshments, closing with a prayer from the Priest.


...Today is a day on which Ethiopia is stretching her hands to God in joy and thankfulness and revealing her
happiness to her children....  This day, on which the people of Ethiopia are freed from oppressive foreign yoke and
eternal servitude and on which I am enabled to rejoin my people, whom I love and have longed for,  will be honoured
as a holiday to be commemorated annually as a Great Ethiopian Anniversary.  On this day we shall remember those
heroic warriors who, determined not to surrender the great charge passed on to them by their Father, became
sacrifices, shedding their blood and breaking their bones for the freedom of the land they loved and for the honour
of their Emperor and their flag.  The history of Ethiopia will be witness for these Our warriors.
July 23rd 1892 (16 Hamle) - 2nd Advent of the Cosmic Christ
Rastalogy accepts this day as the Second Advent of the Cosmic Christ, fulfilling Isaiah Chapter 9 v6, “For unto us
a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, Tafari.”.

This day represents a major Holy Day; celebrated as a family day with a short prayer service giving thanks to
Yahweh, for  the birth of His Son, Tafari.  Service starts (e.g., 11am), followed by a celebration consisting of
Rasta Music and food.
October 7th 1928 (7 Maskaram) - Divine Kingship of Rastafari
This day represents a Holy Day.  This is when Rastafari was acclaimed ‘Negus’, King of Ethiopia, fulfilling Isaiah
43v15
, “I am  the Lord Rastafari your Holy One Creator of Israel, your King.”.  The Church of Haile Selassie I
celebrates with short Prayer  and Service starting at 11am.
November 2nd 1930 (2 Tikimt) - Transfiguration Day
This represents the Transfiguration Day of  Negus Ras Tafari to Emperor Haile Selassie I, ‘Might of the Trinity’  
fulfilling  
Revelation 5v5, “The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has prevailed.”  This day represents the Holy Day when
Rastafari was  acclaimed ‘Negus Negast’ King of kings Emperor of Ethiopia; Fulfilling
Isaiah 43v15;

“I am the Lord Rastafari your Holy One Creator of Israel, your King.”

This day is celebrated quietly with a short Prayer Service (e.g., starting 11am).  Then celebrate with Rasta
Music, rice and  peas, vegetables and  fish, closing with a short Prayer of thanksgiving by the Priest with
blessing.

The history of Ethiopia for the past half a century has revolved materially around events in which Haile Selassie
First has been  the prime mover.  In times of stress, in times of joy, his leadership in resolving the hopes, fears and
aspirations of the Ethiopian people has been distinctive, his guidance indispensable and decisive.  His people and
the world have acclaimed him a fighter not  only in defence of the integrity of Ethiopia.  He has been a champion for
world peace and a man whose principles have contributed manfully to the history of his day and age.  His public
utterances in this phase of the national and international drama of peace and war speak by themselves most
eloquently.
Holy Day Donations
This is an opportunity for all those who believe in the plight of Ethiopians, Africans, Rastafarians, and
conscientious people  around the globe, who Love Justice and hate aggression, to pledge their support by
donating to
The Church of Haile Selassie  I and the I.E.W.F. in the execution of the Aims and Objectives of the
Imperial
Ethiopian World Federation.

We overstand the various financial pressures we face in our daily lives and the numerous worthy causes
needing our financial contributions; therefore we are asking our supporters to "reach out" on each of our Holy
Days and donate (1$, 5$, 10$, 20$, 50$, 100$, 500$+, etc.) whatever we are able to give on one of those days
listed above (no amount is too small).  We hope this relieves some pressure, but still provides specific
opportunities throughout the year to contribute to a cause important to each of us.
May 5th (5th of Miyaza) - “Fasika” (Passover)
Thank you! Bless!
We welcome whatever support we receive and ask that JAH richly bless our supporters.

Thank You! JAH Guide and Protect!

Malchijah
Servant of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I
Bless!

10 April

More than 10 years ago Ethiopia launched a formal claim to get some of its precious treasures looted by the
British soldiers during the battle of Maqdala over 150 years ago. The aim was to have this returned back to
Ethiopia. Instead they are still in the UK, and now some of the artefacts have just gone on display at the Victoria
and Albert Museum in London, with hints they might soon be on their way home to Ethiopia - on loan. The BBC
Africa editor Mary Harper went to see the exhibition.
