If I didn't know any context I'd swear those are Greeks. Vestments and looks are IMO very much alike.
There are some deacons among them - they wear their stole/oraria somewhat differently. The Greek kamylavkia (clerical headdress) are taller than the OO ones you see here.

There's something we can agree on.
hey does anyone know what exactly those arabic wrighting says? always wondered.
If I'm not mistaken, they are the names of God.
Is it my eyes, or in the center area by the edge of the dome, is that the Theotokos and the angels?
Yes, it is the Theotokos.  I wonder if that was where the original altar was located.

I think so.

There's Metropolitan Jeronymos of Mwanza, Archbishop Jonah of Kampala and All Uganda and now, Bishop Innocent of Burundi and Rwanda.

Beautiful!  Africa was the continent that sheltered Christ when He fled from Herod.  It is my personal belief that as the West rejects Him it will be that continent which accepts Him once more.
