The Root Causes of all Eritrea’s Problems is Issaias Afeworki and the Little Issaiases Around Him!


A Short Editorial Comment –The Man and His Wild Political Ambitions!!

Issaias Afeworki is now about 69 years old. Ever since he split from the mother organisation (the Eritrean Liberation Front) in 1971 and set up his own organisation, the Popular Liberation Front (PLF), renamed later the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF), he has been at the centre of power unchallenged and without interruption for more than 55 years.

He enjoys being at the centre of power so much so that he can never imagine any other life and his wild political ambition knows no limits. Indeed, he is really a sadist who enjoys the sufferings of his former close comrades imprisoned in dark underground dungeons.

For the last 40 years or so, Issaias Afeworki has been acting as brutally and cruelly as Joseph Stalin did in Soviet Russia in order to remain at the centre of power. He did anything and everything in order to keep at bay all his actual and potential enemies and rivals for power. In fact, in order to silence and humiliate his political opponents, Issaias Afeworki would send some into forced exile confine others to house arrest, jail some more for an indefinite period and assassinate still more.images (1)itwoded Abraha

Issaias Afeworki’s rule is thus characterised by colossal cruelties and systematic human-rights abuses, stifling freedom of speech, imposing forced labour and imprisonment, torturing Eritrean political prisoners and keeping an estimated 10,000 under humiliating and degrading conditions.

Issaias Afeworki has open Contempt for the Eritrean People

On many occasions Issaias Afeworki has displayed open contempt for the Eritrean people’s aspiration to live under democracy. He has stated that there will not be elections/democracy in Eritrea in the next 30-40 years and suggested to those who wish to live under democracy that they travel to another planet.

Indeed, Issaias Afeworki is so arrogant, with utter contempt for Eritrea and its people, that he has been running the country without a constitution as if it were his family company, systematically milking and impoverishing the Eritrean people and slowly but surely destroying the fabric of Eritrean society. Out of pure contempt, he is also determined to remain President of Eritrea for life.

The Eritrean youth, the cream and hope of Eritrean society, are being systematically driven away into exile in their thousands. Thus, all the signals one observes in Eritrea under Issaias’s PFDJ rule today are those of a decaying society in the process of total disintegration.

As should be clear to every Eritrean by now, Issaias Afeworki, his PFDJ party and all the little Issaiases around him are not pursuing an Eritrean agenda. In any case, they never had a national agenda. Right from the start, they had their own hidden political agenda – one diametrically opposed to Eritrea’s national interest.

In fact, this agenda is to dismantle Eritrea as a political entity. That is why, right from the outset, Issaias Afeworki and his clique have been secretly busy imprisoning and killing all those patriotic Eritreans who could have defended and promoted the Eritrean national interest. The imprisonment for almost 30 years of the Eritrean nationalist, Bitweded Abraha, is a case in point here.

Because we have waited with folded arms for far too long, sadly the Eritrean people are now being faced with a hard choice: either they instigate a people’s uprising and destroy the tyrant or the tyrant will destroy Eritrea. There is no other choice left for Eritrea and its people.

    • Thank you for exposing the dictator’s agenda. It seems that there are those opportunists that don’t want to hear about the Eritrean tragedy that you have correctly spelled out. But go ahead and continue with your description of the situation in Eritrea. It is always the few ones that have the guts to say things the way they are and become the catalysts for a change.

      Thank you again

    • It is not hatew ketew. Actually this mad man will never back up than doing unthinkable. He is happy to see Eritea disintegrated and its people demoralised. Facts speak for themselves. Look at wanton destruction of Asmara. And look also for the intentionally making the people needy and beggar.

  1. Disgusting garbage in garbage out. No wonder these clowns in the so called “Oppositions” and God knows how many of them are out there.

  2. It is obvious that the impostor isaias afecherqi and his cabals have been pursuing to establish tigraitigrigni. This underlies the reason, that after independence, he willfully aborted the programe of Nation Building by plunging the country into war under the false pretense of Woyane invasion, which he could not support with valid evidence when asked by the Eritrean Ethiopian Claim Commission.

  3. There is you idiots can not do nothing look EU USA AFRICANs are running to ERITREA to learn from him so jast sit & eat welfare you get from your MASTERS you shulde be concern when you see you MASTERS USA & UK are in ERITREA left you behind

  4. When some one asks u y u foucus on Betweded why not in the others prisoners what could be ur answear?I think the one of the main couse is that those who say acdamicer they corrupted by the idea or focusing on their “ADOM or ABY IU ADU ADIKA>>>>So ur A Dr. I can speak u with fact by comparison that the president is one of great person of last and this century. Historical or present I can speak that he is a model not only for the poor nation Africa also for the world. For ur information most American liberals those who worked in state department of USA and specially those who had a connection with Eritrea they appreciated Our President. and don’t worry almost he is finishing his job it remains only with a couple of munities.

  6. You are right Dr.
    It is extremely saddening and shameful what the tyrant is following for the last two decades. As you said his cruelty comes from the ambitious to power . From the beginning he became leader with dirty politics, and he ruined the country like never happened. If you remember, he said it clearly in 1993/4 during public meeting ” እዚ ውድብ ሓናኽ ኣይኮነን ስልጣን ክግብት እንተደልዩ ደው ዘብሎ ነገር የለን ::” ክብልዩ መሊሱ ከይሓነኸ. And we are now witnessing it .

  7. Drs You are crying from 1983 till now and I wish you to get better sooner, meskin!!!!
    No wonder sedet has been your sable diet.

    • But how many people are now heading to neighboring countries, moron? The entire nation is crying due to the dictatorial regime in Asmara. Did you call your name wedinakfa? Shame on you. Nakfa is now long been forgotten by the so called HIGDEF as if it did not save them in the 80s. Just see how the end will be for these all atrocities.

    • WediNakfa
      you are some one who sold his mind and spirit for cheap deception and misinformation. Unless you are a retarded and confused human being, every one, even a child can easily understands and preceives the current situation of our country.History will judge you and other “ንሕና ንሱ፡ ንሱ ንሕና” confused individuals.
      Please wakeup and be your self, Or go back to school and study ABC of politics.

      • Mr Hamam thanks a lot, I like your comments, sorry to disappoint you though at least I am glad you did not call me a woy-ane stooge, like you :))))

    • Dea4r Berhane,

      You have raised important question but some quarters they think if they vilify and heap defamatory words, they feel like they are the only democrats and they believe, Eritreans interest is vested only and only on them, thus leading to create101 with all names organisations in different but he sad fact is they did not make an inch of lead, what a shame, just shenkolele, Addis, Nairobi, German endless meetings!!!

    • There is nothing goood has been done in Eritrea so far comparing to the retraction undertaking to the people and the nation. The profits from the minning as long as it is not serving our people,how the hell can we see that as an achievement? In all parameters the regime’s management in social and political arena, is a disaster.
