    Selam Dr Paulos & all,

    Here is a good poem by my colleague a veteran tegadaly about May 24, our Independence Day. The title “ጉንበት አይናትካንያ ህግደፍ.”

    Selam My Good People,

    It doesn’t feel like almost weekend in Awate as the “usual suspects” as in Hailat, Kokhobay, Amde, Abinism, Fantination, Doc Beyan, Prof. Aman, Kbur Haw Ismail AA, Kbrom, Haftey, Semerile, Tsatse Arkey are no where to be found. Hope they’re all well.

      They are all quietly celebrating Interdependence Day in their own way. I’m busy getting things ready for the big game. Champions league final!!!!
      Berhe is busy congratulating himself as he just figured out that IA is a con artist. He is not as slow as General Nitricc claims.
      Amdachin is being used as a lamppost on godana harinet as the party continues overnight.
      Semere is still celebrating the special day at Tim Hortons gulping that coffee thing.
      Fantination who?
      Ato Saleh? He is at the barber.
      Saaytanic is at Lake Hora visiting his mentor.
      Beyan is still eating.
      Paul is busy conveniently forgetting all the great ladies of the forum.
      Hayat is receiving guidance and counseling from the great AG.
      I’m kind of missing Tes. Hope he is fine.

      Seriously though anybody heard from Abraham Hannibal? He was ill. I hope he is getting better.

      • Paulos

        Abinism,

        You should see me laughing. I thought Hayat was in Addis for good to checkmate PMAA. The lamppost thing is Gold as Amdachin would say it. And of course, Ayay Saleh needs a haircut as in right now. In fact, I heard one of the real deal Awatistas [Won’t say a name] is a Barber and maybe he can give him a discount.

          Selamat Dottore, Abi, and Amanuel Hidrat,

          Abi’s humor is a class act. He does it with grace and with a refined subtlety. Note at his use of “Interdependence” instead of “Independence”. Unlike my friend Amanuel, I chose to chase my other virtual friend Mahmoud Saleh who traveled virtually on the mekhete 2 tour trying to convince Eritreans to embrace the Higdef sponsored “Interdependence” celebration.

          I was having trouble catching up with MS. When I felt I almost caught up with him at Radio ERENA he magically appeared at assenna. It felt like a cat and a mouse chase. I finally had to settle in writing a piece at assenna in hopes of shoeing him away from the Seattle Interdependence celebration, I guess tonight. So, this is how the chase felt and, unlike that cat though, I had to resort to writing a piece instead. So, Abi, I wasn’t just eating and feeling jolly. Rather, that’s what I’ve been doing the last three days, if inquiring minds wanna know, that is:

        Hi Abi, you excel when you are in such a joking mood. I love it

        But I have to tell you this. After reading your comment I was happy you didn’t see me when my hair was theee times as long. You would have suggested cutting my head 🙂 then I went to a barber and fiund him holding yaager bet scissors. You know, the one tailors use to cut khaki fabric! I asked him if his name was Abi. Yes, he said and he just used the scissors to cut grass. I promised to return to him next year. And here I am, still with my head intact 🙂

        My regards to your wife, she translated the thing to you brilliantly. Of course seeing the picture doesn’t need translation. 🙂

        Cheers

        • Just saying

          Saleh,
          Be happy because hairwise, you are above average. Let your wife know that. I would say 75% of adult diaspora Eritreans (Ethiopians too) are bald. The baldness occurs in odd areas of the skull, so they shave the whole thing off. What can they do!
          Folks back home fare better in this area. I wonder why that is.

          • Saleh Johar

            Hi Just saying,
            You do not know the reason people go bald? It’s the Berlentina hair grease…. and endless use of the middo 🙂 Besides, I shaved off 30 years from my age this Independence Day. I am now 25 going 26 🙂

    • Amanuel Hidrat

      Selam Dr. Paulos,

      I am here, but I took the back seat, and am following the debates until I get a subject that pulls me in to the boxing ring of our politics. By the way Abi is correct that some of us are “celebrating quietly our independence day” in our own way without ርአዩለይ ስምዑለይ. I was laughing when some individuals calling upon Awate.com to say Happy independence day, in order to get their approval. Doctore, a divided society celebrate their independence day in their own way to reflect and find their happiness on the occasion. I wish all Eritreans are recognized for their sacrifice and commemorate the independence of our country together where ever we are. Until then, it is what it is, and everyone is celebrating in the way it reflects his/her satisfaction on the occasion.

      regards

    Selam My Good People,

    Listened to ብረዚደንት ኢሳያስ ኣፈወርቂ speech and one can’t help it but notice that he doesn’t look enthused at all. In fact, he looks completely beat.

    He mentioned three multiples of five numbers as in 25, 50 and 75. The first two are not hard to miss but not sure how the last number is relevant to Eritrea’s historiography. Maybe ክቡር ብረዚደንቲ is pulling Tsatse Arkey on us.

    That said, he went all Key-Note Speaker as if the audience is some sort of think-tanks and academics as he rumbled about the take over of the BRICKS as the new players when the Bi-Polar world is receding into the backburner.

    I give him for what he said about the fundamentals of foreign policy though, when he alluded the fact that, strong economy is the key for exerting foreign policy but of course, he needs to walk the talk by implementing political institutions as in Rule-of-Law, Transparency and Accountability in the first place. Instead, he spoke about Eritrea’s need to engage in an otherwise dynamic world where one is left only to speculate if he was hinting about the recent diplomatic developments.

    Lastly, he spoke about investing in human capital as in in education including training more teachers and encouraging Diaspora Eritreans to play a major role in infrastructure building as well. No mention about human rights, freedom of press and other God given freedoms. Maybe next year….

    • Berhe Y

      Dear Paulo Arkey,

      Aberham Zere has an article on Al-Jazeera titled “Democracy according to Eritrea’s Afwerki, then and now”. He is quoting a speech he delivered in West Sussex, UK in 1997 titled “Democracy in Africa: an African view.”

      In the speech he said the six important pillars of democracy needed specially in Africa:

      1 – The right of a citizen to an equal share of natural resources, including access to basic necessities and protection from hunger and deprivation.

      2 – The right to equal opportunity, including education and other services that are essential for personal development.

      3 – The right to full respect and protection of one’s dignity – as a human being, citizen and member of a community – without any discrimination on the basis of social status, religion, gender and race.

      4 – The right to life, unhindered movement, and freedom of expression and opinion.

      5 – The right for and the provision of, appropriate legal and institutional guarantees consisting of, among other things, a constitution and a judiciary.

      6 – The right for and the provision of a responsible, transparent, and non-corrupt government to uphold the rule of law and defend the national interest. .

      I can say today, he erased every single one of them.

        Selam Berhino,

        Thanks for sharing. Will check it out. 27 years on, Isaias, in an unbearable monotone, talks about a nation in a perpetual under-siege surrounded by a vigilant fortress when in reality, it is all in a set of undiagnosed sick mind. I had Night Shyamalan movie “The Village” in mind when I watched his speech. It is just incredible.

        If the common wisdom says, democracies do not go to war against each other, the new mantra is however, nations which are bound by shared economic needs and interests do not go to war against each other. And it is this minimum but powerful framework that is gravitating nations in the Horn as in Ethiopia, Sudan and Djibouti toward each other. And Eritrea with all its resources as in human capital and natural resources could have played a major role, instead Isaias resorts into a conspiracy theory that is not there. It is really sad!

        • Berhe Y

          Dear Paulo,

          Finally I have figured it out, at least it make sense to me now, what IA is. a con artist.

          Others called him that before but I didn’t quite understood it. I looking for the definition and the motive etc and here is what found

          “The only thing more important to a con artist than perfecting a con is perfecting a total lack of conscience.”. He has absolute lack of concise, principle, or believe.

          IA dances to the tunes of the music as if suits him. Few years ago, may be 5 years, he had a meeting with Eritreans in Uganda I think, and there was question and answer. In that exchange, I don’t remember the details of the question or his reply, but his body language and his response was clear that he was kind of bragging what he made himself out to be.

          Everything he does and says is to give him extra time to hold to power.

          Berhe

      • saay7

        Hi Berhe:

        That is so 20th century, man:)

        What do you think Isaias Afwerki means when says “we have learned a lot in the past 10 years”? You know, the sentence he used when he was killing the constitution? The sentence he uses in every interview? It means that he had bought into liberal democracy, but then realized that liberal democracy is dangerous to politicians once they are no longer seen as “New Leaders”, “Renaissance Men” and then they find new ways. Look at all the New Generation of African Leaders that Clinton was praising in the 1990s: Kagame (altered the constitution to be ruler for life); Museveni (altered constitution to be ruler for life); Meles (rigged a system to create a meto-be-meto election result) and Isaias (delayed implementation of constitution, then killed it.)

        As the French say, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose: The more things change, the more they remain the same. How are Isaias, Musevini and Kagame any different from The Big Men of Africa (the Mobutu’) who invented a political terminology called Bigmanism?

        Again, I don’t expect IA or PFDJ to be any better than an average basketcase; but it’s unacceptable for them to be worse.

        • Berhe Y

          Anta Saleh,

          Museveni, Kigame, Melles ?

          Beyan Edlina emo knreKbo.

          At least they are not shutting down, enda shahi enda embotito as SGJ like to say.

          When you compare him and put him on par with these leaders, you are really, really erasing his HaTyat.

          None of their people are running away under extreme circumstances from them.

      Hi Paulos,

      I fished out some policy type contours from PIA speach: 1) focus on water sustainability, land management, agriculture,
      2) red sea resource exploitation,
      3) Investment in energy, transportation infrastructure, housing and education,

      There was no talk on politics, and explicit blaming of TPLF this time.

      With no common bench Mark (and no quantitative figure), very hard to appreciate what, PIA says, is being achieved.

      No mention of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), Tax policies, entrepreneurship appreciation mechanisms and the likes.

      Thanks

    Selam Ayay,

    Not sure if you were still in Eritrea in the early 80s. The trendy fad with young Asmarinos was not only sporting Afro [Way before Jontra kicked in] but caring fiction books particularly the so called “Waiting Area Novels” as in Agatha Chrstie, Sidney Sheldon and Danielle Steel among others.

    Thing is, was any of the Asmarinos reading the books for real? Hardly, people said. It was all to impress the gals instead. And of course, the books later on replaced with VHS and BetaMax. As you said, they must had been ጥራዝ ነጠቅ. Served its purpose though, for as they say, ታህዲድ ፍርቂ ሓይሊ or is it ክንዲ ባዓል ጣፍ ባዓል ኣፍ? Thanks for the great Bideo.

    • Saleh Johar

      Hi Paulo’s,
      Don’t claim Afro. It was our,s. 🙂

      Let me tell you this: in the early seventies I met a guy who sold used magazines and novels he brought from the kagnew station. Of corse there were magazines with glossy picture, I mean nature and all :-). But I also was introduced to the books of Harold Robbins who. was big then. Though thick fictions books, it was the an xxxxx may retail for the time. But Agatha Christie was big down there. Many people I know started their writing hobby inspired by Agatha Christie. But I have another interesting story about books—for other time 🙂

      Thanks Paulo’s.
