Met Seraphim of Zimbabwe, who was named among the 6 hierarchs to leave for the Russian Church, was absent from the meeting of the Holy Synod of the Church of Alexandria.

On January 12, 2022, the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Alexandria completed its three-day meeting, according to the Greek edition Romfea.

These days it was announced at the meeting the establishment of the diocese of Ginji and Eastern Uganda within the structure of the Alexandrian Church by separating it from the diocese of Gulu and Northern Uganda.

The church news agency Romfea also reports that Metropolitan Seraphim (Kikkotis) of Zimbabwe and Angola did not appear at the meeting of the Synod. His informational speech was on the agenda of the Synod meeting, but the report was postponed due to the absence of the hierarch, the newspaper writes.

Previously, pro-Phanar resources disseminated information that Metropolitan Seraphim is one of the 6 hierarchs of the Patriarchate of Alexandria who may go under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church.

As the UOJ reported, in 2019, Metropolitan Seraphim (Kikkotis) of Zimbabwe and Angola, Ypertim and Exarch of South Africa of the Patriarchate of Alexandria, a consistent opponent of the recognition of the OCU, has repeatedly stated that the Ukrainian issue should be resolved in a conciliar manner.
