Haile Selassie, King of Kings of Malawi

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when IGZIABEHER shall bring again Zion Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for IGZIABEHER hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.IGZIABEHER hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. -Esayas 52:7-10

On this day in 1965, the three Kings of the major nations that make up the people of Malawi crowned His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I the Paramount King of Malawi.

This was revealed by one Paliani Chingowo in his forthcoming book. As one who has been priveledged to see an advance copy, I can tell you that Malawi is very much a Rastafarian nation.
