    I wish so much attention had been given to those 350 brothers and sisters who lost their life in the sea. Yes it is our culture not to blame the dead but still worth to mention that this is a person who once was a hero and together with hero´s like Petros Solomon and Duru who helped to liberate our country, for that i give him credit. But as the dictator himself said, once a hero doesn´t mean you will be a hero for ever. Wuchu chose to be a servant of the dictator instead of standing up for his people and even became corrupt and power hungry individual. Most of us remember his involvement in the corruption scandal involving Samson "the civilian general" and his killing. Or what about when Wuchu´s son fell in the school and died, all the kids in his school and their teacher were put in prison even though everyone knew it was a pure accident. It is a shame that once a hero dies as a corrupt and power hungry dictator servant. But still it is our culture and i say may his soul rest in peace.

  7. Anta gangster, qondaf, lemani, jejawi woyane stay away!!!!
    You are one gutless indecisive good for nothing individual a coward philosopher. What a pathetic creature. You are a job-less person, enough of your galvanized and flashy words. Who gave you mandate to write about our Jegnau Eritrean heroes whom you don't know. Hide yourself in your stinky ghettos and die there.
    kendaka zeyakels beaka yeweraze!!!!! begamindo
    Stay away!!!!and stick to your website

  8. Anta hasswi, lokmas, serkai, begamindo, you don't know him. I know him very well. He has never been a servant of any person, he stands by his own feet. He is not a coward person to make decisions, he makes decisions equal too PIA.
    Maj General Wuchu=PIA in decision making. No one will stand in front of him a coward person like you. But he will advice to be courage's.
    nkemaka zeameselu afaf, mefaf, wekaru, sebai zegeber eyu.
    He has a gut. nay sebay sebut sebay Jegana eyu.
    Anta ageb belulei, ageb.
    Maj Gen Wuchu is hero for ever!

  9. Well articulated comment Mr concern Eritrea. Just to add more, I have heard a lot heroic stories done by Witchu, from my uncle who was under Witchu, during armed struggle. Witchu was a real soldier who has done miracles during the war, but lets not forget the brain of all battles like Petros Solomon, Uqube Abrehaley, Sherifo, Mesfin Hagos. They all fought and gave all they had for our nation. The fact that Witchu lack education and knowledge of modern world, I don't blame him that he was the tool of the people in the top. And as you said, our culture doesn't give a room to accuse a dead person.
    Rest in peace General Witchu.

  10. One question to you
    Do you consider Petros Selomon as a hero? What about Sherifo? What about Uqube abreha? What about sheriffs ex wife Aster fizehatsion? What about Petros Selomons wife Aster?
    I am waiting for your reply!!!

  11. Are you going to remember Petros Solomon, Diru, Sherifo, Aster (sheriffs ex wife), Aster (Petros Solomon's wife) as heros???

    I am expecting an answer!

  12. The sad reality in Eritrea today is that it is up to DIA to decide who will be called a hero or a traitor even by far Eritrean. People like Hagos Kisha are called as Eritreans as the same time sons of Eritrea are accused of being Woyane/Tigraway/Agame you name it. Or what about hero´s like Petros Solomon are called traitor and sellout by people who didn´t even ask for the simple evidence to be presented for the last 13 years. What a shame. May god save our country from blind supporters and their leader.
