December 8, 2009 — It is said that dictatorship employs peculiar techniques to maintain grip on power, and chief among those techniques is the use of fear; and once the people stop fearing the dictator, the entire system crumbles. The dictatorship of the National Congress Party (NCP) in Khartoum, led by President Omar al-Bashir, is currently on test whether the people still fear the system.

Who could forget the heinous article from the notorious ehdefawit  Sofia Tesfamariam against Saleh Gadi.  The allegations she stated against him in her article, “Asmara Rose Responds to Saleh Gadi and the Awate Team” were not just unfounded but intolerant in our culture.  Her article sent shivers in the cyber community that mobilized many of us to give a lesson to PFDJ thugs in the land of law.

There seems to be a lot of confusion on the status of the rule of law in Eritrea.

This confusion contributes towards the opposition being at odds with each other, extends a life support system to the oppressive political order of the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ) and finally, it baffles the international democratic forces and discourages it from lending an effective and valuable targeted support to the Eritrean  people.

The international community is on the verge of meting out a collective punishment on the Eritrean political and military leadership. The proposed UN sanctions will be the harshest ever imposed on an African nation in recent memory. The Eritrean government says it is not concerned.

One of my worst days back in those terrible days in Asmara was Tuesday. Since my news paper was,  published every Wednesday, I have to go to the ministry of Information for approvals and pass the censorship test before going to the press, that is Tuesday(qursus Solus, “cursed Tuesday” as they said it in Tigrinya). Tuesday was the day me and my colleagues feel anxious, apprehensive even nervous as we don’t possibly know what the outcome and decisions  of the censor department might be.
