Al-Ahram Weekly: Meet Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki – Interview

President Isaias Afewerki of Eritrea

Fighting words of peace

Fear and anxiety, realism and optimism, love for Africa and passion in its defence — these were some of the sometimes conflicting emotions that surfaced in the course of the Al-Ahram Weekly interview with Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki.

Meles Zenawi and his Obsession with Eritrea

Ethiopia's Obsession with Eritrea

“Meles recognises Eritrea’s independence legally but not emotionally and psychologically”

By Kidane Eyob,

Just like an abusive, obsessive, psychotic and manipulative husband who would never let his ex-wife go free after they have been legally divorced because he does not accept the divorce both emotionally and psychologically, 20 years on, Meles Zenawi does not wish to let Eritrea go free. After ten years, he has given up on his desperate pursuit of ‘’dialogue’’ with the Government of Eritrea (GOE) before the implementation of the Final and Binding Ruling of the EEBC and his newly imported vocabulary seems to be ‘’regime change’’.   Continue reading Meles Zenawi and his Obsession with Eritrea
