    selam to all,

    ሻዕቢያ ንኤርትርዊ ከጥፍእ እምበር ንኤርትራዊ ራህዋ ከስፍን ሓሳብን ባህርን ነርዎ ኣይፈልጥን፥፥ “ዓመልያ ፈጺምኩም ንስኻትኩም ድማ-ነፍሰ ቅትለት ትፍጽሙ” ዝብል ኣብታርኽ ተሰሚዑ ኣይፈልጥን በዝይካ ኣብዚ ኣረመን ሻዕብያ፥፥

    The barbaric ghedli had no other higher goals but to exterminate the people of Eritrea. I could not continue to listen the interview. It is too harrowing.

      Tsehaye whoever you are if you denounce Ghedli, you denouncing our herio brothers and sisters. Ghedli fought for our freedom, which is hijacked by the evil dictator. Thank you Amuneal and jegna tegadali. God bless our country.

        The objective of ghedli never progresses beyond a struggle for eradication of amhara from eritrea or the right for self determination. It has never been about democracy. In fact any one who preached democracy was dealt with harshly during the struggle. I will be surprised if there was a single tegadaliai who new the definition of democracy. All the slogans were “we will fight till we liberate eritrea”. That means independence not freedom. We have independence but not freedom.

        Dear meg,

        Do you know what exactly you said? I will help you. You said, “Denouncing the serial killer is denouncing the victims.” Ghedli was Isaias, Abdela Idris, Petros Solomon, Welde-dawit, Wuchu and countless other serial killers. The victims (the heroes that you preferred to call them) were ስርየት ኣዲስ, መንካዕ, ፋሉል, the farmers, the merchants, the disappeared, those who were thrown into needless battles and never came out alive, those who were assassinated in the cities without proof, etc. The list has a beginning but not an end. For your information, ghedli was led by Isaias and many other criminals. Therefore, to beautify ghedli is to humanize Isaias and his henchmen. You cannot choose to have one face of a Nakfa bill and throw the other side.

        Get out of that decapitating environment of group-think. Think critically and embrace rational discourse. Cheers!

    Slavery well and alive in Eritrea. The generals have free maid service, free baby sitters, free gardeners, free painters , free messengers for their wives.
    If they want to build a house in their village or in any town they can use the free slave labouror the aghelghlot.
    Few years back a distant relative who is high ranking military official used the service of 40 aghelghlot for one month to build his villa in our village and another one in the nearby town.
    Every one who was in aghelghlot knows about the abuse by superiors includinding sexual abuse.

    Oh my Lord! This was definitely one of the hardest interviews to listen to!
    What he said about wanting then to get killed is very consistent to what Dejen said about the 2 pilots who died because they sent then to an area which was already targeted! This is a heartbreaking reality about the then eplf now pfdj.
    At this point, I can say, the only reason Eritrea was liberated was because of unquenchable zeal of the people and terra tegadalay. Otherwise, it appears that the leaders had no desire for it!

  • Teclay March 13, 2016

    Assena asks to its audience;
    “25 ዓመታት ነጻነት ዶ ባርነት”…..በታ ናይ ብሓቂ ኣራኣእያና ዲና ክንምልስ ?
    In my opinion,it would be better if we understood clearly,what is ነጻነት? what is ባርነት?and what is a flag(ባንዼራ) mean?Yes ,for some of us ,as long as the flag is high in the sky it is Ok to be burned here on the ground.
    To answer directly,let us compare Ghedli’s rule in the rural areas before 91 ,Ghedli’s rule in the whole Bahre -Negash after 91,and Dergi’s rule in the villages and towns including the capital until 1991.
    How was life under Dergi? were we humilated under Rashayda Bedwin alliance ??Had it been any attempt What would have done Dergi???? Was there hundreds of barbaric ,under ground prisons???? = then it is clear which one is ነጻነት and which one is ባርነት.

      Issayas ambition from that secret meeting with Ethiopian authority in
      early 1070’s proved that he has sinister mission we can’t figure out yet.
      From day one in Ghedli life his reputation has been tricky full of deceit
      and misleading personality impression to win humble people’s heart .
      He possess unique character foreign to Eritrean society . And that is why
      he took advantage against those who gave him trust and obedience.
      What do you expect from evil person who betrayed the promise vowed for
      his martyred comrades ? He will finish you slowly one by one .

    I am 21 and barely know how eritrea came to exist, apart from what my family told me. I am studying political science at the moment, and I have a lot interest in my countries affairs. one question I would like someone to explain it to me ; is it true that when the referendum was held, our people were voting between naxinet or barinet ? I mean would there be any animal that would vote for barinet ? if so, can anyone explain it to me how this was so?

    • Adulis March 14, 2016

      Nonsense question!!!

    • fetsum abraham March 16, 2016

      Dear freselam, ur information was a false fabrication of some diehard ethiopians specially z amaras. There was nothing like zat during z referendum. The coices were indendence or not, period

    freselam

    Dear Freselam,

    Eritreans did not vote for EPLF/Higdef, they did it for their own freedom and national sovereignty, after thirty long years of huge sacrifices of young lives, tears and immense suffering.
    But mistakes were done, terrible mistakes I should say: we failed to stop tyranny at its early stages, because we are too divided along regional, ethnic and religious lines. Now, we know what went wrong, who is to blame, and even how we can come out this mess, but it takes time to get everyone on board.
    The problem is not Eritrean independence, but the enemy that we have at home.
    The immense sacrifices made by at least three generations of Eritreans will not go in vain.
    We are almost there.

    • k.tewolde March 17, 2016

      You are a good mentor Wedi Hagher for the aspiring political scientist,the sad thing is it took us half a century to come to grips with reality and you positively closed your comment, ‘We are almost there.’ I hope so. Once upon a time there was a boy soldier fourteen and half years old to be exact, awaiting for an ambush operation around TOKOMBIA ,he warns,’this guy is up to something different than what we are fighting for’ referring to the tyrant, my comrades gave me a dismissing glance, I remember that moment like yesterday.

      Wedi Hagher your nick name said it all. you nail it. Thank you.

    “We crossed the border to attack Ethiopian army camp where we lost many
    Tegadelti to deliver very successful victory for Weyane for the sake of
    UNITY ( HADNET )” .
    While to fight in civil war HADNET was foreign to the ears because the great Issayas didn’t bless it . Typical arrogant slave mentality caused
    national destruction .
