Ethiopia is the North Korea of Africa, Not Eritrea


Ethiopia is Africa's North Korea

Ethiopia is the North Korea of Africa, Not Eritrea


With all the talk of free press in the West, you'd be surprised to learn that many to most journalists' opinions are still shaped/influenced by the political moods of their respective governments. Nowhere is this more evident than in the United States, where reporters produce positive or negative "country narratives"  based on U.S.' political relations with that country.

This real, but unofficial U.S. policy was alluded to by an unnamed senior U.S. official to the Washington Post last year. He said:
“The countries that cooperate with us get at least a free pass,” acknowledged a senior U.S. official who specializes in Africa but spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid retribution. “Whereas other countries that don't cooperate, we ream them as best we can.”

For Eritrea, which does not 'cooperate' (political jargon for taking orders) with the U.S., the country narrative has shifted over the last few years. Prior to U.S.' relations souring with Eritrea (1991-2005), U.S. media, which in turn influences other medias globally, frequently dubbed Eritrea as a "slice of Italy" or an African version of Italy due to the strong Italian architecture and culture that's present in urban areas of the country. However, after successive U.S. administrations became at odds with Eritrea (2006-Present), the country narrative began to change. Eritrea is now being dubbed the "North Korea of Africa" by its enemies and media outlets looking to spice-up their story to garner more readers.

Not surprisingly, for neutral journalists, human rights observers and tourists who have actually visited Eritrea, they regularly comment that the country is nothing like North Korea.

Recently, Lloyd Lipsett, an international human rights lawyer, who visited Eritrea on two occasions, pointed out that the media's characterization of Eritrea as the North Korea of Africa is a lie:

First, there are some differences between external reports and from what I was able to observe on the ground. Frankly, I expected a more militarized and overtly repressive environment than I witnessed in Asmara and at the mine (Nevsun's Bisha mine) site. I acknowledge my investigation did not delve into civil and political rights issues that are reported about Eritrea. But my first and second impressions of the country, and particularly of the mine site, do not concord with the characterization of Eritrea as the North Korea of Africa.

Even before landing in Eritrea, AFP Correspondent Jenny Vaughan got the sense that Eritrea is really not the North Korea of Africa after observing travelers who were visibly proud and excited about visiting the country. She wrote:

There was a quiet (although at times no-so-quiet) pride on display. My plane from Frankfurt to Asmara, mostly full with Eritreans, was buzzing with excited anticipation. It was an indication that Eritrea is not the "open air" prison or the "North Korea of Africa," as it has been crudely labeled in the past by its enemies

For seasoned tourists, it's a no brainier: Eritrea is more like Italy than North Korea.

From at least external appearances, Lonely Planet had it right — Asmara felt much more like Naples (Italian city) than North Korea." Said Paul, an American tourist who visited Asmara in May. "In fact, it is unquestionably the most beautiful African capital city I’ve visited. It’s truly pleasant to stroll around on foot, with wide sidewalks, towering green trees, and minimal traffic."

Despite visitors of Eritrea describing  the country as a "slice of Italy", many sloppy journalists looking to get more visitors to their site continue to propagate Eritrea is the North Korea of Africa. Part of the reason why is because the United States and Ethiopia are actively pushing for this country narrative as part of their strategy to demonize Eritrea.

Ironically, it is Ethiopia that best fits the description of an "African version of North Korea". While Eritrea has no ties with North Korea, most seem to neglect, or are unaware that Ethiopia is one of the few countries in Africa that maintains strong ties with North Korea. This close relation isn't limited to politics, either.

For over a decade, Pyongyang and Addis Ababa have been working together on a number of military areas, including purchasing of arms and tanks with U.S. assistance that were in violation of  UNSC Resolution 1718 (2006). Michael R. Gordon and Mark Mazzetti for the New York Times wrote:

“…Three months after the United States successfully pressed the United Nations to impose strict sanctions on North Korea because of that country’s nuclear test, officials in the Bush administration allowed Ethiopia to complete a secret arms purchase from Pyongyang in what appears to be a violation of the restrictions, according to senior U.S. officials…The United States allowed the arms delivery to go through in January in part because Ethiopian troops were in the midst of a military offensive against Islamic militias inside Somalia, a campaign that aided the U.S. policy …”

North Korea even opened munition factories in the Ethiopian towns of Ambo and Gafat, that according to former U.S. ambassador to Ethiopia, Donald Yamamoto, produces rocket propelled grenades (RPGs), BM-21 (truck mounted rocket launchers), and modified AK 47 rifle.

Eritreans and Arab Satellite providers are well aware of who the real African North Koreans are. Every time ERI-TV (Eritrean TV) is jammed by Ethiopia - which means numerous other Arab satellite channels on the same frequency being jammed too - they are reminded of the North Korean technicians based in Mekele that are doing the jamming for their ally, Ethiopia.

But it wasn't until the death of Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi that many journalists and observers had a first hand glimpse at how culturally similar North Korea and Ethiopia have become over the years. When the tyrant's death was finally announced, after weeks of lying about his poor health, the regime forced tens of thousands of people in Addis Ababa to cry hysterically for a man they despised. And it wasn't your normal grief for someone you don't know. It was outright cartoonish that outdid North Korea's Cry or Die style of mourning that Kim Jong-il had received a year earlier.

Indeed, from political, military and even the way both countries heavily rely on aid for survival, it's apparent who the real "African version of North Korea" is. The only difference is Ethiopia's country narrative is shielded from stating the obvious due to to their willingness to be vassals for Uncle Sam.

  2. Who cares about Ethiopia!!! We the Eritrean people (of course, most of us) what we know is our cause for our struggle has been hijacked by a mafia group called P.F.D.J. The good thing is that as time goes by, most Eritreans know that whatever the hideous and heinous leadership in Eritrea says about Ethiopia, CIA.... is a scapegoat. We can be fooled for over 23 years, but not for ever.

  9. Excellent read, Madote!!

    The only thing I'll add is calling Ethiopia the North Korea of Africa would imply it's a semi-advanced country capable of sending ballistic missiles into space and creating nuclear weapons on its on. Moreover, Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, is far more developed than Addis Ababa will be. So the more correct thing to say is North Korea is the Ethiopia of Asia. As the other way around would be a compliment!

  18. North Korea is not unique than most African countries, the only difference is N.K. Have ability to threat the big powers with its Atomic Bomb. The above article comparing Ethiopia vs Eritrea in relation to N.K. Since it is not my business, i am not here to talk about Ethiopia. As if Eritrea is better than North Korea, I totally disagree. We and N.K. Have many things in common. We don't have an elected leader. Our people can not leave their country (freedom of movment). We don't have freedom of speech. We live in fear. Many things are controlled by the government. We don't have constitution. All the above makes us close to N.K.

    If Eritrea was not African north Korea
    how come you've no single private media
    and why are people fleeing in thousands
    In droves every week, all the months
    how long are you going to live in denial
    hiding yourself behind your betrayal
    your ignorance is as well all manifest
    Though you try to conceal it at your best
    your people are scattered all around
    Young and old together in close bond
    A country very small as a nation
    whose people not more than a few million
    Half of them are spread in the universe
    As destitute orphans, and refugees
    Only few are remaining back behind
    The elderly, disabled and blind
    Otherwise the youth are nowhere in there
    For they know there is no hope whatsoever !!

  46. True, he is street smart. However, what you should acknowledge is that he was elevated to the status he was given because they wanted to use him as an instrument to access Africa in general and Ethiopian human resources in particular. The size of the Ethiopian population and the fact that the African Union is located in Addis Ababa is an attractive asset to colonialists.

    With Meles and the organization in a deep quagmire after the 1998-2000 war with Eritrea, Meles must have been presented with an attractive offer from the the colonial masters: They would assist Ethiopia with billions of dollars a year. They would also assist Ethiopia politically, diplomatically, militarily, in espionage, and other aspects not to mention building his status in international forums.

  52. Who would write a diversionary article and who would call it great?
    Of course, the slavish and servile.
    Is there any difference between the con artist and impostor isaias afewerqi and the now dead meles and kim jong II of North Korea?
    Yes, there are.
    meles was a street smart,spineless opportunist and cowardly who was never able to stand on his feet. Recall, long before he became the Western countries marionette, he was EPLFs' fifteen year foot-soldier against Ethiopia; he is the reincarnate of the so called king yohannes, the General Napier's collaborator against king tedros.
    Some people unwittingly attribute to him the current Western countries shift of some capital to Ethiopia. The truth is the other round. The Western countries are risking their capital because they are fed up with feeding the people year after year since haile selase returned from Europe piggybacked on the Allied Forces. By relocating capital in Ethiopia, they were hoping to stimulate the people to support themselves. Unfortunately, their hope has not materialized because the woyane gangs are gobbling the capital as soon as it arrives.
    kim jong II , like the con artist isaias Afewerqi, is an absolute uncrowned monarchy. The Law of the land comes from these two evils. The people, Eritreans and the North Koreans are subjects, not citizens.
    The two people know that not worshipping the cult of kim jong and the con artist isaias afewerqi , disobeying the Law means death. They lead two lives: externally, showing smiles, and internally, broken heart, perpetually dreaming to escape.
    kim jong II is a puppet of China. The con artist isaias afewerqi tried China but was ignored, and now, he is courting Putin, who, I am sure, will ignore him too once he discovered that the con artist is long term puppet of CIA and Israel.
    The fundamental difference between these two evils is that while the con artist isaias afewerqi is an alien, tigrawai, kim jong is North Korean.
    The con artist does not have an Eritrean uncle or aunt; only tegaru uncles and aunts in tigrai. Recal his tigrawai uncle, Degiat Solomon Abraha, who was governor of Wollo under king haile selase.
    The con artist and impostor isaias afewerqi has grown up kids. But did they flee Eritrea like the tens of thousands Eritreans? The con artist degraded the fleeing Eritreans as worthless and that nothing would remain undone because of their departure. Now, could it because his kids are worthy patriots that they remained with him at home?
    Not really. First and foremost, his kids are tegaru, being born of tegaru parents, and therefore, they cannot be patriots. Like their impostor father, they are enemies.
    His oldest son was secretly married more than ten years ago. I am sure he is raising his kids while the true Eritreans are denied that kind of opportunity by his impostor father. This guy is also air force officer trained in China. Does that wring you a bell?
    Yes, he was made to follow the foot steps of his con artist father. Would you be surprised if he is crowned king after the death of impostor father?
    This is not a joke. The con artist isaias afewerqi has already established the ground work for that eventuality. The secrete tegaru party, demhit etc. are the king makers. If you do not wake up and destroy them now, you will regret it later.
