(Sacramento, California) On the occasion of the 127th birthday of H.I.M. Emperor Haile Sellassie I, the application for registration and certification of 3 varieties selected by Dr. Tereke Berhe for “California Grown Teff” were submitted for approval.

In Ethiopia, preparations for the 127th birthday of Emperor Haile Selassie, Abuna Selama, the Archbishop of the Harar region instructed the heads of the 53 churches in his archdiocese to hold special prayers and to speak about the contributions of the Emperor to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Melak Sahal, chief administrator of the 53 churches, said: “The Ethiopian Orthodox Church never forgets the Emperor’s contribution to our ancient church’s glory. Today, on his birthday, we will still talk more about his astounding contributions.”

Melak Selam Tebebu, head of the St Trinity Church in Harar, despite his health, came out to celebrate the Emperor’s birthday and said, “It is not we who give a testimony for the Emperor’s inputs, but his colossal and exceptional works which they speak volumes to save our preaching.”

Through his guidance, the Emperor helped to bring the Egypt, Syria, India, Armenia and Ethiopian church leaders around table for the first time since 431 A.D., to liberate the Ethiopian Orthodox Church with full independence in 1959.

The proven diplomatic skill of the Emperor, in May of 1963, was utilized to help guide and establish the Organization of African Unity, today’s African Union.
