On how he would like to see Eritrea, Amanuel said, “I wish Eritrea to be a democratic country at peace with its neighbors and with itself—as they say, Democracy is the worst system of government but there is no alternative.”
Amanuel Sahle is a father of three children and he lives in Sweden with his wife and children.
