Clip: Orthodox Christian Liturgy (Qidaasee) in Afaan Oromo

Over the last week, social media have been abuzz with hateful words of a certain Orthodox Church personality towards Afaan Oromo. Afaan Oromo, despite being one of the widely spoken languages in Africa – and the most spoken language in Ethiopia, has only been given official status recently (over the last three decades). Ethiopia’s past regimes had a policy of suppressing the Oromo language (Afaan Oromo) in all public spheres, including the Church, schools and offices, in order to undermine the political power of the Oromo as a unified people. It’s that bigoted and hateful policy that the certain Orthodox Church personality was bringing to the fore in this 21st century.

The language is still not an official federal working language in Ethiopia, even though Afaan Oromo speakers are the largest in the country. In spite of the bigoted minds of a few, Afaan Oromo will soon become an official federal working language in Ethiopia.

Here’s a clip that shows the Orthodox Christian liturgy (qidaasee) in Afaan Oromo; this is the development that the bigoted personality was against. It’s encouraging to see the Ethiopian Orthodox Church has embraced this development.
