Ali Abdu arrives in Eritrea, ending Assenna rumor

November 27, 2012 — Eritrean Minister of Information Ali Abdu arrived in Asmara from an undisclosed trip abroad, ending a week-long rumor made by Assenna.com that the former guerrilla fighter had defected to Canada.

Ali Abdu arrived at Asmara International Airport around 3:30 PM AM local time today. He was later seen walking in the capital and discussing with citizens without any security detail, several witnesses reported by phone.

Over the years, Assenna has made a number of claims that were later found to be completely fabricated, which has earned it an unflattering nickname of 'Hassenna' (we lied) among Eritrean youths.

Even with its credibility being called into question, the London-based website was able to receive western media attention in late April, after it falsely reported Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki had passed away from a liver ailment.

Assenna, which broadcasts to Eritrea three times a week through its radio frequency found on 9610kHz, is likely distributing false information to destabilize the Red Sea State, an observer familiar with the situation noted.

  3. In a country where Information is very rare to get, it is not unusual to see people to depend on rumors. We know how 03 is powerful in Asmara, no body look into DIMTSI HAFASH OR TV ER : which they were labeled by DIA one time the lies at meeting in DENDEN COMP Asmara.

    1. Who cares, Hassenna should be more serious and nationalist instead of flooding its website with rumors and tigray's achievements.
      Would be grateful if you ask them(Hassena)why my account (Abdi)was suspended/banned ;-)

  15. To all you people out there, do you realize what you are doing? The site owner is playing reverse-psychology on you lot. As the saying that goes, 'there is no such thing as bad publicity'. The rumors and lies the site dishes out invariably draws the attention it could not get otherwise. What did you come here to find? Quality always tells!!! I rest my case!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the biggest lie perpetrated on the Eritrean people. Really though you guys think we are so stupid that just because you tell us that some people have seen him in Asmara is a good enough evidence for us to believe this guy is indeed in Asmara. Even after he has not been seen in the recent cabinet meeting and when even him self through his brother has admitted that he is no longer in Asmara and he is indeed in hiding in a secret location in Germany....you still have the balls to keep this article on your web site. Shame on madore.com for misinforming eritreans!!!!!

  19. To madote:


    Please can you block "Stand for Eritrea" because he wants to stand for Eritrea LOL without paying 2% contribution and then complain about National service salary. Anyway his/her comments are anti Eritrea and should promptly removed.

  20. So now that we know Ali Abdu is free from the shadow of the
    Dictator and Assenna.com was right in reporting the story in the first place. What does your truth telling website and all those who commented below have to say?
