Someone has asked me to provide an explanation as to how I know who is responsible for the assassination attempt made on the life of General Sebhat Efrem.
As far as I am concerned, although time will provide a definite answer to the question posed to me, nevertheless the available circumstantial evidence directs me to state authoritatively that the narcissistic Issayas Afeworki, who is busy grooming his son to take absolute power
in Eritrea, is behind the plot to assassinate General Sebhat Efrem.
In other words, the assassination attempt is part of the broader strategy to liquidate and cleanse the old guard to pave the way for the son of the Eritrean dictator to have a smooth transition without any challenge.
It is therefore very important for Eritreans to understand that Afeworki is suffering acutely from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). As a result, he is arrogant, cruel and sadistic, usually seeking excessive admiration and attention, with irrational suspicion and mistrust of others.
In addition, as a man with personality disorder, he has difficulty tolerating criticism or defeat and he enjoys humiliating and assassinating even those who were his close comrades and associates during the liberation era.
Sebhat Efrem, the Eritrean four-star general and former defence minister, is therefore merely the latest victim, among thousands of Eritrean liberation heroes, to be murdered and incarcerated indefinitely on the direct orders of Issayas Afeworki.
