  • Description

    Emperor Baile Selassie led worshippers in the Ethiopian Orthodox Christian festival of "Teketsle Sigie", celebrated in Addis Ababa on Thursday (20 September).

    He joined government and church leaders and priests dress in multi-coloured robes in the festival, which heralds the coming of the sunny season and the blooming of flowers.

    "Teketsle Sigie" precedes by seven days the "Feast of Maskal", in which Ethiopians celebrate the traditional story in which the Cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified is said to have been found by an Ethiopian Empress in the fourteenth century.
