Message to all Rastafarians & Friends of Royalist Ethiopia
Note:  This message was published in the Imperial Voice in 1997
On Friday, January 17, 1997, after a prolonged illness, at the age of eighty, Our beloved Father H.I.M.
Emperor Amha Selassie I ascended into Zion.

The ascension of H.I.M. Emperor Amha Selassie I has established his son Crown Prince Zara Yacob as the
custodian of the Ethiopian nation, fulfilling Emperor Haile Selassie I's wishes by his proclamation April
14, 1974 at the Jubilee Palace, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  "Because of the illness of our beloved Son Prince
Asfa Wossen H.S. the heir to the throne will be Prince Zara Yacob."  Today the Rastafarian communities
worldwide must consolidate H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I's last broadcast to the Ethiopian nation at
home and abroad, and rally behind Crown Prince Zara Yacob as the true heir apparent of the Ethiopian

We Rastafarian people and people who love justice and hate aggression must not allow the Marxist
Leninist Stalinist oriented usurper and propagandist elements of frustrate our mind and loyalty
irrespective he is the grandson of Emperor Haile Selassie I.  Once our Augustus Emperor Haile Selassie I
225th rebirth of King Solomon and King David, The Christ, The Anointed One and Messiah has spoken we
must obey it without question.  Let us rally to the liberation cry of Ethiopia and the restoration of the
dynasty of Emperor Haile Selassie I through Crown Prince Zara Yacob.

Give thanks,
Ascento Foxe
International President of I.E.W.F.  and Editor-in-Chief of Imperial Voice
