Interesting fact: According to the LA Times, President Isaias makes less than $12,000 dollars a year - making him one of the least paid presidents in the world.
Interesting quotes: "Self-reliance is interpreted as an isolationist trend, which it is not at all ... Self-reliance is preparing yourself for partnership, equal partnership." — Isaias Afwerki
"The president of Eritrea, Isaias Afwerki, and his wife, Saba Haile, a former freedom fighter, lived in their own small house, but they recived me at the Presidential Palace. As we watched folk dancers perform in a courtyard built by the Italians during their colonial occupation, I asked President Afwerki, who had given up his university studies to fight in the resistance, if he had ever found time to dance during their long war. "Of course," he replied. "We had to dance to remind ourselves of a world without war." — Hillary Rodham Clinton
US Army General says – Isaias Walks Around Alone Without Bodyguards
When American Major General Mastin M. Robeson accidentally met Eritrean President walking alone in Asmara, he was impressed and knew he was dealing with a confident man who was cut from a different cloth. So it’s no surprise when he returned home to the states, he would defend Isaias Afwerki from journalists looking to criticize him.
Even with the ongoing demonization campaign against him, Eritrean hard man still enjoys popular support among his people. In fact, he’s the only world leader that can be seen walking around the capital without any security detail.
“Isaias doesn’t need bodyguards,” he told reporters. “He goes around alone. He lives in a normal house. He governs an African capital that is crime-free, without slums, even though there are relatively few police.”
The General who commanded a Combined/Joint Task Force in the Horn of Africa added about the fiercely ‘independent’ African country, “there’s no terrorist threat in Eritrea. More than any other country in my AOR [area of responsibility], it has a secular Western sense of patriotism. Isn’t that what we claim we want?”
Major General Mastin Robeson retired in February 2010 after 34 years of active service in the U.S. Marine Corps, during which time he served in more than 60 countries.
