  1. Is that General Sebhat Efream?

  2. Poor Eritrea!!!
    Who is minister of defense now? The mad dog called Esseyas Afeworki has every right to reshuffle ministers without the confirmation and approval of the so called national congress. Don’t the Eritrean people have a right to know who is replacing who? Don’t the Eritrean people have a right to know where the sale of the minerals are going? Is this what we fought for? To let one man do whatever he wants to do?

    To the supporters of the mafia group called PFDJ, please stop clapping!!! Your country is heading into its graveyard!!! Don’t be fooled by the fool leadership in Eritrea.

  3. Wedi Keren,
    I was a PFDJ supporter from 1991 until recently.
