Orthodox Tewahedo Church Doubted Census Result

An Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Official expressed doubt on the census result. Megabe Sereat Daniel Weldegeriam, head of the Parish Council Department, replied to Semea Tsidk Christian Newspaper that number of Christians is reduced in comparision to the data the Church has.

According to the head, the census might have overlooked the monastics and students of the traditional Church education. The head further highlighted the census the Church is going to hold in a year's time.

The much awaited census result of the 2007 census was made public after a year. Its result is result especially and strongly opposed by Ethiopian Muslims. Only the evangelicals, who tripled in time od not more than a decade and half, look happy about the result.
