|King of the Kingdom of Jimma|
|Dynasty||Kingdom of Jimma|
Because the son of his nephew, Moti Abba Rebu, was an infant when he was killed, Abba Bok'a was made King. A devout believer unlike his predecessors, he advocated Islam in Jimma, building many mosques and sending educated Muslims to proselytize and teach in his provinces.
Abba Bok'a was very old at the time he became King, and died from natural causes.
