The Horne of Africa Alliance:   Can Isayas Change his Feather to Flock Together?

Following home cleaning and having succeeded in making alliance with his people, the Ethiopian Prime Minister (EPM), Dr. Abiy Ahmed, devised his big picture for the whole Horne of Africa region.  He made lightning visits to the Sudan, Djibouti and Somalia to explain his new plan.  He even self-invited himself to visit the problem country of the region, Eritrea of Isayas.

Unlike the visits to the other Horne of Africa countries, the EPM’s visit to Eritrea was not a surprise visit.  Isayas admitted to taking two weeks to prepare, yet he had not much to say in his welcoming visit to the EPM at the State Dinner.  In response, the EPM, Dr. Abiy, made a lengthy speech.

In his speech, the EPM made it clear that Isayas had shifted his perspective from demanding first the return of Badume to normalization of relationship.  Thus, Isayas is now agreeable to Second (normalization) first and First (return of Badume) second in that to get along first as neighbors in order to advance the proposed collective interest of the region only.

It appears that the EPM convinced Isayas that his big picture of the region, as a multi-nations alliance, should not face at its initiation disruptive issues, like unsettled border problems.  According to the EPM, the “No Peace, No War” failed both of the countries.  The admission of the EPM gave reason to Isayas to believe that that problem was the cause for his leadership failure and not because he was bad at handling with the country’s problems.

The EPM, lest not be misquoted, made it clear that the proposed strategic alliance will consist of those already expressed their willingness to become members plus Eritrea to be added to list after it said “Yes” to the proposed alliance.  He appeared to explain that the multi-nations alliance will consist of independent nations with their defined borders whose lands (the crossing of borders) will be bridged by their peoples’ hearts of love for each other.

The member countries of the proposed alliance will abolish their border checks allowing free movement of people and monies.  There will be emerging markets, employability, business opportunities and developments.  As such, there will be shared risks and responsibilities that necessitate some rigidities (rule of law) to resolve problems that arise from businesses conducted in another country within the proposed alliance.

What to Expect? Self-Driving or Self-Adjusting Changes

The member countries of the proposed alliance with their open border policies will first focus on creating structural rigidities that will help them to develop uniform governance and practices.  Because the open border will have impacts on individual freedom, housing and cross-border businesses helping to promote long term stabilities and economic prosperities, the participating countries will need to assign coordinating bodies to deal with all rigidities.

The cohesiveness of the member countries will result in exceeding the expected outcomes.  In the process of the self-adjusting changes, existing flaws will be corrected and those stuck in non-working patterns will find alternatives that enable them to foster their working relationships.

Prior to giving effect to their open border policies, each member country will be asked to heighten its attention to all collective priorities that include home cleaning.  The home cleaning will help to build trust and all-round good relationships among the member countries.  For better interactive engagement, the member countries are required to be corruptions free, their people to be treated with decency and not like slaves as well as their rule of law and not fears to be the command of the sovereign.  The rule of law should be backed by enforcers in order to fight corruption and impose compliance, accountability and transparency successfully.

For better self-driving changes, each member country has to make compromises in order to provide flexibilities and enable cooperation.  Indeed, internal tensions and problems can hamper the proposed alliance’s mitigation strategies regarding risk avoidance or transference.

The self-driving changes are the product of the open border policies and the changes are activated and auto-piloted by the free movement of the people and monies to invest in service and industries within the alliance’s member countries.  The rigidities in place are supposed to control disruption by those who oppose the changes.

Can Isayas Absorb the Shocks of the Change?

The home cleaning is the hardest part of the change for Isayas.  Firstly, Isayas has to take responsibility and ownership for all failures under his leadership.  He should apologize for playing blame games for the past and current damages caused to the Eritrean people.  Secondly, he should express his preparedness to wrap up his provisional administration that was supposed to be de-colonization process for two years during which constitution was to be framed, approved and implemented, followed by free elections.

Since Eritrea has to be operated by constitution (rule of law) prior to joining the proposed alliance, Isayas has to allow the people to elect a body of representatives for national unity and reconciliation led by an elected person.  Thence, all political prisoners will have to be released and political parties (the opposition groups) to be allowed to return back enabling them to participate in reviewing the reviewed and approved constitution.  Necessary steps on how to implement the constitution have to be agreed upon by those authorized to do so.  Only when and upon completion of the election, the elected representatives of the Eritrean people can approve of the proposed alliance.

The EPM in his own words, the Eritrean and Ethiopian peoples should have the right to travel out of their respective countries and travel back with dignity and respect.  But such a reality under the present rule of Isayas is very bizarre and impossible.  Since in the absence of rule of law in Eritrea, individual freedom to set on free movement is impossible making the border of the country meaningless it renders the alliance with Eritrea of Isayas meaningless.

Unless the proposed alliance is to set free an isolated tyrant who is accused of crimes against humanity, the State of Eritrea at its present state is not qualified to participate on equal footing.  The acceptance of Eritrea’s membership in the alliance should be conditionally and subject to completing its home cleaning process appropriately.  Otherwise, empowering the hostage holder will only help to toughen his grip depriving his hostages of their only and remaining liberty of breathing air freely.

In the eyes of the hostages, it will be wise of Isayas to immediately declare home cleaning.  Just matching what Dr. Abiy Ahmed did will suffice to begin with.  The rest can be left for the constitution to take care of and ensure participation of Eritrea in the proposed alliance without inherent disruption and internal tension that may cause instabilities to the collective interest.

Unless collective alliance is supported by equal and shared cleanliness is bound to fail.

    Subject: The Horne of Africa Alliance: Can Isayas Change his Feather to Flock Together? By Mamino, July 11, 2018

    Commentary, 11 July 2018 At the risk of sounding like a broken song record, let me comment, hopefully, for the last time. Issayas Afewerki Abraha has the deepest hatred against Eritrean people. There is no debate on this fact. The glaring consequence of the daily occurrence to the Life of the Eritrean people is a living testimony. If we need to go farther than this fact, we will be forced to go to the ugly characteristic of society of labeling individuals with harmful derogatory nomenclature. Issayas has been hurt by such name-calling from his early childhood age. Sad to say, Eritreans have the knack to create enemies by loose ‘languages’[1]

    With the above background, let me revert back to Mr. Issayas Afewerki Abraha’s, the self-appointed president and, perhaps, for Life. Looking back at his entire history, he has no choice but to continue destroying Eritrea to ashes. In twenty-seven years, after Liberation, he demonstrated, without a shadow of a doubt, as a ruthless dictator who cannot abide by any constitution, law, rules and regulation other than by his own dictates. With that characteristic, Extreme SENSITIVITY becomes dictators’ warning bell. Take the example of the liquidation of his closest comrades of the Liberation Struggle. He liquidated eleven of them out of suspicion. ALL in one night at precisely 0300 hours, never to be seen again. And in general, thousands and thousands of Eritreans were (and still being) liquidated for any reason but connected with the absolute aim of protecting the longevity of Issayas as the an Absolute Master of the Eritrean People. At this point in time, Issyas has already accomplished his aim to bring down the entire population of Eritrea under his ‘boots’ – true to his own confession [“ከርእየክን እዬ”] to a friend in a moment of relaxation with alcoholic refreshment. What is so amazing, in the face of ONE man’s criminal deeds, is the fact that not a blip of opposition came out from the World Renowned Eritrean Liberation Force of thirty-years gallantry. THAT truly brings out the true nature of ERITREANS as a whole. Prove it, otherwise. .

    In conclusion, the excitement surrounding the visit of Ethiopian Prime Minister to Eritrea is NOT exclusively for the benefit of the Eritrean people but an arrangement between Ethiopia and Issaya Afewerki Abraha, the Dictator.. As to the destiny of the PEOPLE of Eritrea, the slang of the Black Americans, with their wisdom out of centuries of suffering, says it all: “you ain’t seen not’ing yet” THE END
    —————————————————
    [1] A book that I read notes that “we [Eritreans] are used to consider insults as greetings” Anthropologists may wonder the source of such behaviour. And we can conjure why, without spelling it out here.

      Hello Assenna and brother Rezen,
      I second your opinion and also add this Isaias’ intention to welcome the peace deal with Ethiopia in such a rush rush mode and without putting in place any legal basis for the border or any agreement for that matter is to confuse the new, young and bright PM and slowly implant his seeds of divide and rule policy on Ethiopia, which if he succeeds, we ‘ll have a 7 or 8 new additional countries in the horn of Africa.

    You analysis the key note of this article and the underpinning question “Can isias change feather to flock together?” Beautifully. There is nothing to add except to admire your ability to express you thoughts in a very clear manner. Thanks brother.

    Thanks for your comment!

    “It’s would be totally stupid and naive of him, if he still thinks he can inherit his fathers crimes and continue ruling the country with iron and fire.”

    Well, he may not have a choice. Bashir was reluctantly dragged on from his medical practice in London following his father’s death. If you are born to a blood thirsty dad, you have two choices in life: either Bashir’s or Gaddafi’s family ways. Eseyas knows well the perils of politics and will prepare for any unforeseen eventualities. All his children were in Dubai two weeks ago, treated like a VIP by the king. This visit could be interpreted as either: prepare all the all ground work- the villas and the money laundering, or as a means of giving them some exposure to governance.

    I dare to predict Eseyas’ next move since he has all Cards in his sleeve. He can do whatever he likes, that is, he can relax some of his excess repression, open the economy and some resemblance of normal life, or business as usual. He has all the ingredient at his disposal: submissive people, a country with no youth and diversity (It could be a curse or blessing).

    If I have lost the meaning of living for over 30 years and then out of blue, you provide me food and water, should not I grateful to you and seen you as my savour?

      “His {Isaias’s} mission was to frustrate the evil ghedli and be part of a Habesha {without the lowland moslem parasites} block that extends to the horn of Africa. He had to commit necessary evil for the greater good. I think {me too misunderstood Isu} I misundersttod him {Isaias}.
      Thank you for killing the colony fabricated, evil Arab sponsored, slave minded evil ghedli MR PRESIDENT!!! Thank you very much uncle Sye or PRESIDENT SYE too your reall beautiful/excellent comment. We admire you kibur uncle tremendously for your super ability to express it in a very crystal clear manners. Even the criminal corrupted Jebha/ELF foot soldiers can understand it, may be they may find it hard to swallow but they can use their filthy camels piss to wash it down their filthy throats. Thanks again kibur uncle.

      After loosing the meaning of life for 30 yrs I would see some one who massage me psychologically at least and help me not see or smell those who deprived me life for that long. Anything less does not work. Time is answer but you will see that Haben.

      Crimes committed for two long and openly can not be washed away by peace song with ethiopia. Border issue was bogus to begin with and was designed to repression, control and stay in power, nothing more nothing less. That in itself is gross crime committed on the 20000 lives lost and 500000 exiled.
