Sudan: Ethiopian refugees face increasingly difficult conditions as more people flee their homes (09.08.2021)

Ethiopian refugees in the camps in south-east Sudan face increasingly dire living conditions.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, August 9, 2021 – As fighting in Ethiopia’s Tigray region and other areas in the north of the country forces more people to flee their homes, Ethiopian refugees in the camps in south-east Sudan face increasingly dire living conditions. Food, clean water, shelter and sanitation are desperately insufficient, and an increasing number of people suffer from malnutrition and diseases like malaria and hepatitis E. The onset of the rainy season worsened the situation and some refugees are choosing to undertake dangerous migration routes or move to other areas of the country.

“Everyone is just trying to make their life better, but youth are in a bad situation and they’re turning to drugs and alcohol. They’re starting to have psychological problems. There are also all the children separated from their families who are here alone,” said Daniel, a 23-year-old student living in Um Rakouba camp.

Besides the harsh living conditions, thousands of refugees are unable to contact their family members with telecommunication networks in many areas of the Tigray region down. Many people suffer trauma and emotional distress, following months of not knowing if they will be reunited with their spouses and children.

Since the beginning of the Tigray crisis, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) facilitated nearly 22,200 successful phone calls between refugees and their families. However, it registered over 20,000 unsuccessful phone calls in the same period, meaning that thousands of people could not receive news from home.

“Months go by without any news from family members for far too many people,” said Maria Carolina Aissa, the head of the ICRC sub-delegation in Kassala. “It is heartbreaking to see how people struggle to maintain dignity and hope in these circumstances.”

About ICRC’s work for refugees in Sudan:

• The ICRC supports the Sudan Red Crescent Society (SRCS) in Gedaref and Kassala to help refugees maintain contact with their families. The SRCS works in Um Rakouba and Tunaydba Ethiopian refugee camps, in Shargrab camp for Ertirean refugees, as well as in two transit sites, where the SRCS and the ICRC trained 38 host community and refugee community volunteers.

• The ICRC collected 228 tracing requests for family members inside the camps and received 20 cases from abroad through national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies. It resolved 6 cases and registered 58 unaccompanied minors. In total, approximately 60 – 70% of the total Tigrayan refugee population in eastern Sudan has benefitted from phone calls or tracing services.

• The ICRC has been supporting Doka Rural Hospital, rehabilitating infrastructure, providing medical supplies, personal protection equipment and training for the staff. It donated more than four tons of medical supplies to the hospital, that provides services to more than 40,000 members of the host community and to over 18,000 refugees in Um Rakouba camp.

A look into the newest UN Special Rapporteur Report (47-HRC) on Eritrea and the Shabait Rebuttal

What I will do is to take things side-by-side just to show how ridiculous things can become. Because, this is just showing how things are finessed and done. This is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Shabait) and how the United Nations operate. The lack of coordination and the lack of mutual consent. Which is the reason for this.

We know its getting hectic, when the Shabait response to the whole report has this headline: “Rumors Cannot be Presented as Facts”. That’s how they pop-it off. It sets the parameter and shows their ways. There is no middle-ground, but just throwing everything at it.

We know the Special Rapporteur Mohamed Abdelsalam Babike doesn’t have a nice job either. As he states early this: “given the lack of cooperation of the Government with the Special Rapporteur, who was denied access to the country, he collated the necessary information through alternative means”. Because of that he was forced to: “The Special Rapporteur conducted remote monitoring and held meetings with a broad range of actors, such as diplomats, human rights defenders, civil society representatives and academics. In addition, the Special Rapporteur collected first-hand information from Eritrean refugees residing in other countries, with a view to informing his assessment of the situation of human rights in Eritrea”.

In this regard, the Eritrean government gave him no choice but do things remotely. Still, they are saying this in their rebuttal about the method: “As with previous SR reports on Eritrea, the lack of reliable data, heavy dependence on biased sources, non-verifiable approach, and ignorance of Eritrea’s ground realities renders the methodology and the essence of the allegations tenuous and unacceptable”.

What is funny about this… the government says they want a reliable and another methodology, but dismiss and doesn’t make it possible for the Special Rapporteur to investigate in the first place. So, if you close the borders and doesn’t cooperate. How is he supposed to get the information in the first place? You cannot close the doors and also claim whatever information he collects as wrong. With this sort of look into it. It seems like the objective of Eritrea is to call everything bogus and lies, while not allowing people to look into their works. This is the United Nations and not just a random organization having a mission of some sorts. Therefore, this is just making things more suspicious in the end of Eritrea. That they don’t want information out in the first place…

When things gets really tricky, is when the Special Rapporteur says this: “The Special Rapporteur highlights that, as a member of the Human Rights Council, Eritrea should strengthen its cooperation with all human rights mechanisms. In particular, the Special Rapporteur encourages the Government to strengthen its cooperation with his mandate and engage constructively, and to enhance its engagement and technical cooperation with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, which remains ready to assist Eritrea in the three priority human rights areas identified by the authorities, as well as in the implementation of the recommendations from human rights mechanisms, including those emanating from the universal periodic review”.

While Shabait says this: “Like every other country in the world, Eritrea faces challenges. However, the GoSE continuously works to address these challenges and improve human rights standards in the country. Accordingly, there is no “crisis” that warrants the targeting of the nation through HRC agendas and mandates”. When Eritrea answers the UN Special Rapporteur like this. You know the whole thing is bound to fail. The UN Special Rapporteur is there, because the UN appointed him. Not because his job is to undermine Eritrea. That’s just a fact and the government in Asmara clearly don’t want that. However, their hostility and lack of cooperation. Only opens up the questions… why are they hiding and not just giving way, if they have a perfect Human Rights record? Why are they not inviting and showing the greatness of the Republic?

Well… you go figure… right?

Then, you have this one, which is on the origin of the Tigray conflict. The Special Rapporteur says this: On 4 November 2020, tensions escalated in the region and an armed conflict erupted in Tigray when the Ethiopian National Defence Forces launched a military offensive against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front in response to reported attacks against the Ethiopian National Defence Forces’ military bases in Tigray by Tigrayan forces. The Ethiopian National Defence Forces were allegedly supported by Amhara regional forces and the Amhara Fano militia in western Tigray, and in particular by the Eritrean Defence Forces in northern and central Tigray”. While Shabait answers with this: “Emboldened by some governments, the Western media, and NGOs, the TPLF, by its own admission, unleashed an insurrectionist war in November 2020 after it was ousted from power in 2018 after 27 years of despotic rule in Ethiopia. The objective of this massive, premeditated and unprovoked attack that the TPLF launched on all the contingents of the Ethiopian army in the north was to totally neutralize the Northern Command which possessed around 80% of the EDF’s total arsenal. The TPLF killed several hundred non-Tigrayan soldiers within the Northern Command and its overall plan was to topple the central government once it had pacified the Northern Command”. As Shabait continues: “Subsequent plans included military action against Eritrea to advance its avowed “regime change” agenda as well as incorporation of Eritrean sovereign territories for its long-term, multi-layered, aims and aspirations”.

Here you see that Eritrea isn’t looking into their own actions or as a part of the tripartite alliance in Tigray region. No, they are shifting everything at the TPLF. That is an deliberate act. While the Special Rapporteur is looking at it objectively. That’s why the wording is so careful. The Shabait is going after the TPLF and their actions, but not stating anything about their own. Also, giving a history lesson of the misdeeds of the TPLF. While it is not saying it is currently involved any of it itself. Implying it is all justified and there is no reason to doubt that… While all three parties was preparing and launching the attacks on Tigray. So, they could easily blame the TPLF no matter what it did… and the rest is history and a conflict living on to this day.

What is further striking is this one, where the Special Rapporteur says this: “The Special Rapporteur welcomes the decision adopted on 22 March 2021 by the Council of the European Union, under the European Union’s global human rights sanctions regime, imposing sanctions on Eritrea for serious violations of human rights, including acts of torture, extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions and killings in Eritrea. The Council imposed restrictive measures on eleven individuals and four entities responsible for serious human rights violations and abuses in China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Eritrea, Libya, the Russian Federation and South Sudan”. When Shabait retorts with this: “Mention has also been made regarding EU sanctions on Eritrea amid the ongoing discussion to withhold development support in particular in the pretext of the unwarranted and worn-out allegations surrounding National Service and forced labor (paragraph 24) as well as other baseless human rights allegations. Any such pre-condition on development cooperation is unacceptable. Eritrea remains committed to the effective mobilization, higher organization, and creation of national capacity in the implementation of its development programmes. It is, however, equally committed to cooperation predicated on partnership, involving mutual respect and understanding. Thus, it rejects any attempts at intimidation, coercion, or harassment under the veil of human rights and development cooperation”.

Here we are seeing a stark contrast again. What is really significant. That Eritrea is against the sanctions. That’s to be expected, because who wants to be sanctioned and getting retribution. However, instead of letting people in and see that these things doesn’t happen. The Eritrean state is just retaliating. The UN Special Rapporteur only verifies the reports and the surrounding misgivings of the Eritrean state. Something the Eritrean doesn’t prove to be wrong. They just call it baseless, but doesn’t prove anything or say anything in significant in consideration with the alleged human rights violations. Which is the reason of the sanctions in the first place. The EU will have mechanisms where there is a need for burden of proof and evidence before sanctioning a nation. Which in effect has been enacted. Eritrea furthers the victimhood by calling it harassment and intimidation. That just shows they have no intent in changing its behaviour or try to prove their innocence.

The UN Special Rapporteur says: “The Special Rapporteur is concerned that the indefinite duration of military and civil service reportedly remains one of the main causes for the departure of Eritreans from their country. With the end of the state of war with Ethiopia, the Special Rapporteur encourages the Government to outline a timetable for reforms to its national service”. The Shabait answers with: “The causality inference (paragraph 40) suggested in the present report between national service and migration from Eritrea is unjustified and unacceptable. In line with the new development drive, as well as the emerging prospects of viable peace and cooperation in the Horn of Africa, efforts will gradually be made to return National Service to its original duration. Moreover, a significant number of national service members have been integrated into the new remuneration system which improved the salary scale of the civil service”.

This here shows the trouble with it here. As the Special Rapporteur states an issue with the military and civil service in Eritrea. While the Shabait tries to dismiss that. However, there is no way this is explaining the Eritreans fleeing from these state programs, which is causing this. The Eritrean government is downplaying it. This just shows how things are… and therefore, we just know the ideals will not be answered. That was a proof of the beginning.

They are both ending with this, which is interesting. The Special Rapporteur states this: “The Special Rapporteur calls upon the Government to acknowledge the persistence of human rights violations and abuses in Eritrea, and to allow him and other human rights mandate holders effective access to visit all areas of the country and meet with relevant stakeholders, with a view to addressing the human rights challenges that it faces”. While Shabait says this: “It is time for the HRC to break with its 8-years long unproductive approach by terminating the mandate imposed on Eritrea. On its part, Eritrea will continue to expand and consolidate dignified engagement and international cooperation based on partnership and will continue its modest contribution to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Council, while working together with other members to depoliticize the Council and its agendas”.

This is how two worlds are colliding. A nation and a sovereign like Eritrea who is saying everything is baseless. While Eritrea isn’t opening up for the UN Special Rapporteur. Therefore, the allegations and the reported breaches of human rights violations aren’t investigated directly, but only proven by eyewitnesses in the diaspora.

The Eritrean state should consider another path, because this sort of retort isn’t safeguarding it. It is just opening up a plethora of questions. As it is not willing to open up. Shabait is just throwing shade. This sort of answer isn’t making any good grounds, but make you further questions the actions of Eritrea.

The UN Special Rapporteur is appointed and gotten a mandate from someone else. Shabait is only defending its state, but its not doing a good job. It is a hit-job, but not hitting the target. Unless, it was to make headlines in local news. Where they can look like they did something, which isn’t true. It did nothing… Peace.

ICRC dramatically increases its budget in Ethiopia and Sudan as needs grow at an alarming rate (27.05.2021)

The new appeal will bring ICRC’s total budget for Ethiopia to 65 million Swiss francs.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, May 27, 2021 -The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is asking donors for an additional 28 million Swiss francs ($31.3 million) for its operations in Ethiopia and Sudan following violence that has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes, increasing the need for food, clean water and medical care.

The new appeal will bring ICRC’s total budget for Ethiopia to 65 million Swiss francs ($72.7 million) and the total budget for Sudan to 36 million Swiss francs ($40.3 million). It is the ICRC’s largest such appeal in four years.

“We haven’t seen such an increase in the level of violence in this region for many years,” said Patrick Youssef, the ICRC’s head of operations for Africa. “The world’s attention has been mostly on Tigray, but pockets of violence broke out in other parts of Ethiopia as well, while fighting also resurfaced in Darfur, causing more fear, more displacement and preventing people from meeting their vital needs.

“We are facing an unprecedented challenge, responding to several crises that unfold against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate shocks,”Mr Youssef said.

In Ethiopia’s Tigray region, the presence of humanitarian actors increased in cities, but significant gaps remain in hard-to-reach rural areas. Access to food and primary healthcare are major humanitarian concerns. At the same time, humanitarian needs in other violence-affected areas like Oromia continue to grow.

In Sudan’s Darfur region, the flare-up of violence forced tens of thousands to flee their homes. People can’t grow food and access essential services. Meanwhile, the country is dealing with several displacement and refugee crises. Nearly 2 million Sudanese remain internally displaced, while the country is hosting more than a million refugees, including over 60,000 people who recently fled Ethiopia.

“The emergency response alone will not suffice in the situation we are now facing. The level of violence and destruction is such that we must be prepared to deal with the protracted consequences of these crises,” Mr Youssef added. “Respect for civilian life and property, as well as for healthcare facilities and personnel, is the only way to limit the disastrous humanitarian impact of the ongoing violence.”

The ICRC stepped up its response in Ethiopia and Sudan to cover urgent humanitarian needs, providing emergency relief and preparing for long-term interventions. Additional funding will enable it to expand its programs in Tigray, Oromia and other violence-affected areas of Ethiopia, working alongside the Ethiopian Red Cross. Reaching rural areas of Tigray, reinforcing health services, and increasing support for victims of sexual violence are among the main priorities.

In Sudan, the ICRC will expand its activities and support the Sudanese Red Crescent to respond to the increasing humanitarian needs in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan. It will focus on delivering assistance to people affected by violence, reinforcing primary health care and physical rehabilitation services.

ICRC in Ethiopia:

  • Supporting health centers in Zalambesa and Altitenna and hospitals in Shire and Sheraro;
  • Providing almost 200,000 liters of drinking water daily to more than 22,000 displaced people and host communities in Mekele, Axum and Shire;
  • Distributed seeds, tools and fertilizer to more than 35,000 families in Somali, Oromia and Tigray Regions.

ICRC in Sudan:

  • Expanding operations to Kassala state and supporting the Kassala teaching hospital’s emergency room;
  • Helping Ethiopian refugees reestablish contact with families and supporting health centers for around 60,000 Ethiopian refugees in 8 camps;
  • Distributed essential household items to around 90,000 people affected by violence in Darfur.

Ethiopia: Baytona Leader Sibhat arrested in Addis

Again and again, the state is picking-up and arresting opposition leaders. Today the newest victim of this is Baytona leader Kibrom Sibhat. He was arrested and taken away by federal security officers. The Federal Police took him away and he haven’t been seen. Neither is there any clear report where his detained and what charges he has.

We don’t know what “crime” he has done. Neither what reason there is for his arrest. The only reason it seems… is that his a leader of an opposition party and part of the Tigray National Political Parties Forum, which Baytona is a part off. Which have issued stern press releases and information about the warfare in the Tigray region since early November 2020.

This is political persecution and taking away their liberty, freedom and justice because of their association. The state have done this to other parties too and this is nothing new. However, this is a continuation and is the modus operandi of the regime in Addis Ababa.

This is the reform Abiy have delivered to the Nation and must be his most valuable asset ahead of the election. Since that cannot be dialogue, reforms or even policies worth a damn. I am saying that.. because he rather arrest, detain and keep his political enemies behind bars. Than actually meet them in a free and fair election. His worried he cannot win or have the ability to overcome his opponents.

That’s why its easier to use the monopoly of violence the state has and issues orders of their demise. Therefore, Sibhat of Baytona is just a part of a long list of political prisoners. Who is just happening to be in the opposition. That is just the way it is and the state continues to use it machinery to get its foes behind bars. Peace.

The Fall of Abere Adamu: A sudden death with mysterious circumstances….

Today it’s reported that the former Amhara Police Commissioner Abere Adamu mysteriously died. This was just mere days after he was sacked from this office. The Commissioner was also in-charge of Amhara Special Forces, which have been involved in various atrocities and horrific crimes across the Republic.

The Special Forces have been used as tool to silence opposition, get rid of ethnic groups and participate in massacres. Therefore, his a war-criminal who got taken out. He surely knew too much and needed to be silenced too.

That he died now is suspicious. The state ways of manoeuvring this isn’t better either. As they are sending the body from Amhara to Addis for autopsy. The circumstances of his death is all unclear and no official announcement of it too.

That makes it seems like it was a statement. Like the state was worried of what knowledge he has or what sort of operation he was operating. In such a manner, that they had to get rid of him and possibly assassinate him. That is mere speculation, but this man spoiled the narrative of the Prime Minister too and the overnight surprise attack on the Northern Command ahead of the Law Enforcement Operation, which the deceased Police Commander stated was well-prepared for and had the troops around the Tigray Region.

This is why the suspicious death. Open a box of questions. Just like the coup of Amhara Regional State in 2019. Where all the yes-men of the Prime Minister got appointed after. Now, his also dead and maybe another puppet will get installed. Clearly, the Prosperity Party can easily get rid of its leaders and just appoint new ones. Except for their beloved one on the top.

Adamu died by default of the monster he was part of unleashing. When you start a war and participate in warfare. There will be bystanders, innocent civilians and partakers who fall on the sword. He was a leader and a man who ordered death of others.

Adamu knew what was going on and stood strong in the middle of bloodbath, massacres and possible genocide. He was okay with the internally displaced people, refugees, starvation and in general the military operation in Tigray. The man stood by all of this and did his duties.

That is why his memory will be the blood on his hands. He maybe died unfavourably and with blunt force. The same sort of force he has ordered upon others. He was maybe taken out, because the “high power” was afraid of him spilling the beans. They wouldn’t except him talking and this man did talk to much in the past.

Adamu is now another one of the men who was trusted by Abiy, but fell on his sword. Another one who has taken the bullet and paid the ultimate price of death. This is the reform that Abiy brings and Adamu is just the last example of this tragic endeavour of the Prime Minister. Peace.

Ethiopia: Joint Press Release by Tigray Opposition Political Parties (23.04.2021)

Once again, the Ethiopian government has proven its sham law enforcement campaign in Tigray, is actually a genocidal mission against the people of Tigray, by adding more Tigrian opposition political parties to the crowded detention centers in the military base.
We have learned that Ato Alula Hailu, Deputy Chairperson of Salsay Weyane Tigray and member of Tigray Nationalist Political Parties Forum Management Team; and Ato Kahsay Hailu Salsay Weyane Tigray party high ranking member and Finance Head have been detained on 22/04/2021 in Mekelle by military personnels.
Although we never had any expectations that the Ethiopian regime will spare any Tigrian national in its persecution, let alone members of Tigrian opposition political parties, the act is another clear message that the regime considers every Tigrian national as a crimnal and rule of law is poured down the drainage.
Moreover, this is another substantial evidence that there would be no room for any peaceful political discourse to solve the challenges we face as a nation.
How ever in our part, declaring our unwavering commitment to a peaceful struggle once again, Tigrian Political Parties Forum will not tolerate such blatant abuse and we demand the immediate and unconditional release of our members.
Tigray will prevail

Ethiopia: Two SAWET Party leaders detained by soldiers in Mekelle

There are now credible reports two of the leaders of SAWET Party or the Salsay Weyane Tigray Party been arrested and detained at unknown location. This party has together with other Tigray parties come out with statements undressing the actions of the in the Tigray Region. They are one of the member parties of the Tigray National Political Parties Forum. Who has been important to release credible news and state the affairs of the state. Which the Federal Government don’t want to have out or deliberately hiding from the world public.

That is why its tragic news to hear that Salsay Weyane Tigray’s Deputy Chairman Alula Hailu and Deputy Head of Finance Kahsay Hailu were taken by Ethiopian soldiers to an undisclosed location in Tigray’s capital, Mekelle.

This news is really tragic, but nothing new in Ethiopia. There are so many political prisoners kept across the Republic. That these is just one a big pool or a giant crowds of opposition leaders behind bars. That is modus operandi at this point.

It wouldn’t be shocking if the leaders of Baytone or TIP would be next from the Tigray National Political Parties Forum. Because, the state is deliberately going after its dissidents. They are clearly planning to go after and finding them. One by one and finding any excuse to arrest, detain or charge them. With no proper cause, but as a warning to anyone opposing the regime.

This is just one more case of injustice and impunity by the rulers of Addis Ababa. The Prosperity Party wants to be remembered this way. That is their fate apparently. Peace.

Ethiopia: Journalist Berhane and Yemane arrested in Mekelle today!

Addis Ababa, April 8, 2013 (FBC) Tigray Media House Journalist Fitsum Birhane and Ayga Forum director of Ethiopian Representative Tamrat Yemane has been arrested. As the 3th commander commander Dereje Debissa said, including individuals working with anti-peace forces, Tigray Media House journalist, Berhane and Ayega Editorial Administration and Ethiopian Representative journalist. Studio rented and arrested while broadcasting false propaganda live” (Fana BC – ‘Tigray Media House journalist Fitsum Birhane has been arrested’ 16.04.2021).

We know the drill here. The state is going after those who dares to speak the truth and broadcast it. Fitsum Berhane is one of them who used his platforms to spread information and knowledge, which the state prefers to be silent. The Prosperity Party wants their stories out and nobody else.

Tamirat Yemane (contributor to Aiga Forum) and a local journalist arrested in Mekelle. Berhane is also working for AFP. These two has been arrested earlier in this year. That is was in February this year actually. So it is barely two months since then and they are re-arrested by the authorities.

This is repeating it and taking in the same people. To justify their tripartite alliance actions in the Tigray region without eyes on the conflict or local journalists covering it. That is why these gentlemen is arrested here and taken into custody.

Their crime is to report in a manner, which is unfavourably to the Prosperity Party. That is the sin they have committed and done online. This is why the army arrested them and took them away. There is nothing else to it. Peace.

Medicins Sans Frontiers (MSF): MSF Driver Assaulted, Staff Witness med Dragged off Buses and Killed in Tigray (24.03.2021)

The Horn of Africa got an utopia nobody knows about. Some people calls it the ‘North Korea’ of Africa. It doesn’t matter if dissidents dies, people are fleeing forced subscriptions to the army and there is a non-existent civil space. No, Asmara and Eritrea is what the world should be.

There is nobody as great and a stable genius like Isaias Afwerki. The man who can live in transition since 1993. The man who never only needed a referendum to be liberated from Ethiopia. Since the parties of all parties have run supreme. The People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ) is the motherland and the fatherland in one. There will be no party like that and nobody will ever be worthy of challenging Afwerki.

Afwerki is the sort of man that deserves to rule by presidential decrees. A man who can decide every little thing. He can make prison camps and appoint his allies to companies. Civilians is fine to to be tried in military courts and be tried without any evidence. The fleeing civilians from being kept as slaves for the party and high ranking officials. That is how you build a nation of patriotic men. You are supposed to serve your best years for pennies. That being between 18 years to 40 years old.

That is the system of Afwerki. A man with no flaws. He has so little flaws. That everyone who oppose him ceases to exist. They just vanish. Either they flee through horrific dangers across the continent in hope to reach Europe. If not they are lingering in detention camps or refugee camps in the countries with borders too it. That is the sort of greatness the PFDJ have given the world.

Afwerki who never needed elections is flawless. The man of all ages. His the natural leader and the visionary. The man who exposes man kind and that is evident since November 2020. That is why they are scapegoated and blamed for all the ills in Tigray region. These folks wouldn’t do people harm. Except for their own… which have gotten ill treatment every time they have tried to defy the Presidential Orders. Well, his the pure enlightenment of man-kind. So, everyone should bow down to the greatness of Afwerki and his PFDJ.

That is why all sanctions and resolutions against Eritrea is always baseless. If not is made by spineless men who report human rights violations like the scrupulous men Mahmud Sherifo, Petros Solomon and Haile Woldensae. Those who dared to criticise the government and the President. These men should have just been loyal to the President and his party. They know deep in their hearts that there is no greater man than Isias walking on planet earth.

That is why Eritrean government is never to be blamed. Their soldiers and forced conscription in the army. If not critics, journalists and other dissidents just have mysterious illnesses or dies in detentions. Not worry, that is because these folks are faint hearted and not because the state is repressive.

What is the lesson of today? Well, Asmara, PFDJ and Afwerki is flawless. They are perfect. No matter what the Eritrean Defence Force (EDF) does inside Ethiopia. Heck, it must be a spotless and definitely not bringing atrocities to a new area. No, they are just innocent angles blessing every town they come too.

Afwerki would never kill his enemies. Isaias would never silence his dissidents or deport foreigners questioning his reign. No, he would just be a puppy and grinning nicely. That is who he is and its weird that his not on the list to become a saint by the Vatican. Someone hasn’t done their job in Asmara and a civil servant should be warned.

The EDF is reported to be a vile force inside the Tigray Region. But when you know about the innocent and non-elected government of Asmara. You should know that a saint like Afwerki would never touch a soul. He would only send his blessings and wouldn’t offer a preposition they couldn’t refuse.

So, whatever the European Union or United States says about Eritrea. They are wrong and blinded by propaganda from detractors. They should listen to the choirs of Afwerki. These are the ones that knows and has the enlightenment, which the rest of world has never understood. His a supreme being and should be deemed as a demigod. Everyone else is lucky to breathe the same air as Isaias. His flawless and mind is beyond ordinary human reasoning. 

So, If you know, now you know. Peace.
