Close to a Thousand-People Arrested at Haji Musa’s Funeral

Thousands of people participated in the burial of Hajji Musa Mohammed Nur, the Nonagenarian chairman of the Al-Dia School. He was buried on Saturday at the Sheikh Al Amin burial grounds in Asmara.

Haji Mussa is believed to have died Thursday night at the Fifth Police station in Asmara. But the security officered transferred his body to a government hospital on Friday morning where it stayed until late evening.

Sources from the hospital said the security officers who brought the body didn’t disclose his identity until Saturday morning when they told his family to collect his body from the hospital.

Muslims usually bury their dead immediately, unless it happens during the night.

On February 2008, Haji Musa’s younger brother Dr Taha Mohammed Nur, a co-founder of the Eritrean Liberation Struggle, died in prison after three years of detention. The government told his relatives to collect his remains without explaining the cause of his death or why he was jailed.

Reports from Asmara indicate that the government wanted to avoid announcing the death of Haji Musa until after the Friday prayer for fear of unrest after the prayer congregation.

On Saturday, as the news of the death was spread, large crowds gathered at Haji Musa’s home in the Akhria neighbourhood from where the funeral procession started. The crowd refused to obey the order of the security officers to follow the shortest route to the burial ground through a minor street. Instead, the procession walked with the remains of Haji Mussa on the longer route through the main street of Asmara.  From Akhria, It passed by the Riga Somal neighbourhood, through Edaga Arbi, and through the edges of Medeber, and in front of the Karshelli prison, and to Edaga Hamus before reaching the Shiekh Alamin burial grounds.

The heavy presence of helmeted security personnel, many of whom were in anti-civil unrest gear and swaying batons, increased the tension in the burial grounds where the security men mingled with the crowd. Soon, unknown individuals pelted the security officers with stones. In reaction, the police closed the gates of the graveyard and rounded up the crowd–they hauled close to a thousand people to the Adi Abeito prison in waiting trucks they had parked on the side streets.

Eyewitnesses indicated that the cells of Adi Abeito are filled up and the prisoners are packed in the open-air prison grounds. The prisoners include many underage children.

Gedab News had confirmed the arrest of two brothers aged, 11 and 13, and another three brothers aged between 12 and 15.

On Sunday, some elders went to the police station to ask about the prisoners and they were told the police has videos that identify the individuals who pelted the soldiers with stones and the rest will be released on Monday after some investigations. However, no prisoner was released on Monday and the security informed the elders, “we are still in the process of registering the prisoners, we will release them soon.”

    Selam all,
    The carceral PFDJ regime has transferred all those it apprehended at the funeral of Hajji Mussa from Adi Abeito to Ala.

    • saay7

      Gogo:

      Gedab News called them “people” and you didn’t identify them properly but those arrested are youth and CHILDREN. Their crime?

      * Carrying the body of private school official Musa Mohammed Nur from Akhria to his final burial place using the Edaga Arbi path to Edaga Hamus thereby having more people witness the event, thereby asking who he is and how he died;

      * Refusing to observe the barriers the poor police officers (more conscripts, more youth) created for them;

      * Saying Allahu Akber as they carried the body to its resting place.

      So, for walking and observing religious ritual, Eritrean youth and children have been taken from an Asmara outskirt prison to Ala prison.

      saay

      • Gogo

        Selamat Saay,
        Yes, I should have been very specific about that. It should be very clear that majority of them are youth and minors. They are our Qeeros. One PFDJ flunky – to borrow your term and spare myself the charge of plagiarism you guys are throwing around a lot these days against some strange guy called Dr Abiye-
        who run by the name Seble Efrem called them ‘child soldiers’ and ‘human shields’ and declared Eritrea is a secular state with no place for fundamentalists.

        On a not-so-different line, our people are so interested in the Oromo protest for many reasons but no one is asking what lessons can be drawn on how Oromo activists inside and outside the country have managed to shake a state more stronger than the anemic state that we have back home. Minus the melodrama and histrionics, the energy, commitment and ingenuity of people like Jawar Mohammed is inspiring.

      Dear Said
      At least EPLF got the liberating the land job done , What PFDJ do now has nothing to do with EPLF . The only reason you brought EPLF is just to show that we have nothing to show in our 17 years opposition to PFDJ. You and people like would like to run your mouth about a military organization that destroyed the largest army ever assembled in the Cold War era in Africa. You see EPLF was a military organization that worked with majority of Eritreans under their belt . EPLF members didn’t sit with their names in Germany or all the west , they sat with in their people and any one who come to spoil that was destroyed by the blessings of the majority of Eritreans. You may say and ran your mouth wild but you cannot change the reality about EPLF , if you don’t want to attach ELF to EPLF that is well and understandable but historical record shows ELF is the mother of EPLF and with out ELF top members blessings Issaias could not go all alone but to insult the people who have been always responsible to what they do is simply not an opposition to PFDJ but a square foot playing game.

      How long will you go to get to the point that EPLF was dead equally as ELF . Don’t you guys see who is dying in prison? Unlike the current opposition parties that based their political agenda on Ethnic , religion and other sick views,EPLF was the one that united Eritreans from lowland , highlands from every walk of life . Show me what you have now ? A political party that wishes to get a mini afar , kunama state, a political party that wishes to rule Eritreans under their religion wishes , a political party that loves Ethiopia than Eritreans, the list goes on and on .

          Dear Natom nihabom

          I don’t believe there is any thing left from EPLF but I understand from your perspective that is the only way to chain this problem we have . We are two people with different understanding, here is our differences.
          1. I believe EPLF was even dead in 1994 not in 2001. You believe EPLF is still alive even though you can’t get any remaining skeletons of it. You want to see EPLF go to the martyrs cemetery ever where from end to end of Eritrea, there you can see if PFDJ is reality of EPLF , I believe it is not.
          2.We both can’t really blame each other so that the failures of PFDJ (owner Issaias) be left alone for you to connect to EPLF.

          There is no point in going at this but I really don’t see the importance of religion in this , despite the fact that we are in this problem is just enough to not connect EPLF with PFDJ.

            Dear Natom Nihabom

            The individuals you saying are really not that important in shaping Eritreans future as they were not important in determining about the brith of Eritrea as a country. The people who dig their whole searching for ethnic and religious views have been there for centuries and they never ever swayed Eritreans. These people are hated in the opposition too , no one liked the identity experts, no one is supporting these sick worthless people but I can understand that you wanted them dismissed from any future Eritrean politics, well here is the news sir , they are dead already and they have been dead since the 1200km sea coast became rightfully only Eritrean . That sense already broke their backbone if they ever had.

            Now will you admit that with out ELF existence in the 1960th there would be no EPLF what so ever. ELF may not the perfect one but that imperfect is ours and we own it equally as EPLF. I believe Eritreans need to learn all about ELF from start to end and that will make Eritrean history fully alive unless omitting ELF bravery from Eritreans history book is bad to everyone. When I said ELF i am not looking at the people who run away because they cannot stand Wedi Aker , I am speaking about thousands of great ELF fighters .

            Now who are these religious ethnic sympathizers? I know them all , don’t freak out they all have no future . All of them are dead with Meles dream.

    Greetings,
    An Important Initiative:
    Eritrean should demand an immediately free all the country’s political prisoners, thrown in the government’s dungeons for the sole crime of thinking differently.
    what ever IA crime committed, no matter how terrifying and ridiculous, in a chilling and horrifying scene IA have normalized arrests and executions.
    For vast majority people who did not commit the crime with which they were charged and welcome to new era of despotism and tyranny justices. For IA Comrade Inner Circle and his élite crime participants,
    It all makes sense, because nothing makes any sense to them. Nothing will offend their sensibilities and they know this.
    solidly united Eritrean Muslims and Christians, should be taking part in angary protests, directly protesting to end and closure of IA era. With this a new beginning, there will be an extraordinary spirit of unity among Eritrean and true to the spirit.
    An Important Initiative: Eritrean s Ought to Form a Representative Popular Committee that in Collaboration with European Human Rights Organizations and Progressive Civic Institutions and Possibly with the Participation and Support of Organs of the left Labor Party: TO DIRECTLY Address Eritrean plight ,accessing LIVE on TV Media and Other Possible Forms of Media the European General Public, spicily on the 28th Anniversary of Eritrean independence , Eritrean Catastrophe of the MAKING Crime by Eritrean regime …..Irrespective of the Outcome, Let Us Start a MOVEMENT in this regard and Keep Pressing Forward,…Again,…and Again, and,…Again

    Eritrean deserve to be free from dictatorship, oppression and free from subjugation . Eritrean deserve to have their own chosen government and with accountable institution and public finances to be managed with honesty, competence, responsibility and common sense. Eritrean should partner with the rest of the world to build a dynamic economy that can deliver equitable and sustainable growth.
    For more than two decades, our youth leaving in droves their nation, seeking a place of refuge, fleeing regime oppression. In this dark hour. Eritrean have counted on the help of many neighbors and friends around the world who have supported our fight for Eritrean independence and freedom. That solidarity is now more critical than ever to bring and restore democracy in Eritrea and get ride of IA regime.

    IA creepy monster, a tyrant’s bloody, President for life, He seemed to think that he is immune from death, unpredictability and predictable and sudden death will soon happen ,in his mortal old age is making his final act of senseless violence will be associated forever with the tyrant legacy , His name will be remembered , with horror and terror that anyone has ever committed in Eritrea.

    In his inevitable death, the vast majority will celebrate in public and feel free. IA the bloodiest ruler, and his inner Comrade Circle and die-hard supporters will be grieving in private. IA dictator whom shrinking number of Eritrean will appear to view him as a great leader and national hero.
    After I A ’s death, and his already shrinking inner circle of PFDJ core hard-liners would try to come to power, In a sign of desperation to hold on power by any means. The hardcore whom they adhere to the same ideas passed to them form their master IA criminal mind of wisdom, and that Eritrean fear that, when IA is gone, someone worse—more aggressive, more repressive, and more bloodiest rulers may come to power.
    But There is evidence in some quarter in Eritrean community’s moral bankruptcy and indifference when approaching Eritrean plight and perish and suffering, ignoring Eritrean cries for justice once again. What is even more distressing is the fact that this would not have been possible without the full support made by Eritrean sold-out intellectuals elite leadership to Asmara regime. their regime support consistently conflating with true aspiration of Eritrean dream, this false premise, these charlatan, they remain definitive to their juvenile
    PFDJ Political trickeries. But the fact and history stare them down. Eritrean intellectual’s elite ideologues are poorly and falsely educated propagandists of the regime and a fanatical disposition they have sold their soul to Bolshevik and Maoist as convictions to their Eritrea audiences. The best of them are sold on this dangerous delusion of communism. The worst of them is, IA ruling Eritrea, He has no serious challengers None of this is a surprise, but it raises the question of where Eritrea is heading, and how to deal with it. It can go on for much longer. Binary, contradictory narratives about Eritrean are nothing new. Add to this IA never appointing qualified a cabinet guided by the principle of inclusive meritocracy: not a single highly competent ministerial line-up of experts in their respective domains, no gender balance and regime is not representative of Eritrean. much explain the dismal state of the Eritrea and the total failure of IA unelected tyrant dictator rules to perform. This simple historical fact goes to the ideologically sick mind of the communism and It has given steady complicity and benediction of mythical reversibility. That’s nonsense. Sigh and is gargled back into that gibberish ideology.
    in late 1960th and 70th Eritrean politics have been marred with pity factional rivalry, at the expense of Eritrean, undermined by disunity and the cultivation of victimhood and reflecting powerlessness and humiliated people, hardly anyone would have predicted the demise of all Eritrean fronts ,it roots of the travesty bestowed upon Eritrean people and to this day Eritrean dream that have never encapsulated the fundamentals of Eritrean demands; justice, democracy, freedom dignity and basic human rights. In the modern history of Eritrea, there had never been a Eritrean leadership more willing to one that would hold regime accountable for its crimes. We, Eritrean or many of us, have put all our eggs in one basket, the EPLF/PFDJ basket. despite all THE FACT that is recorded and clear signs and indications advising us against blindly supporting the regime and allowed ourselves to become very hopeful.in doing so Eritrean are paying the price. For too long, the signs were there.

    A lesson to learn. To quote Hannah Arendt pointed out in her book “On Violence.” Arendt wrote that “power and violence are opposites: where one rules absolutely, the other is absent.” When institutions such as the judicial system break down and lose legitimacy, their moral authority is destroyed. To fill the moral vacuum these institutions, turn exclusively to violence. “Violence,” Arendt wrote, “appears where power is in jeopardy.” Violence is no longer an expression of power. Rather, violence and coercion, which disregard any semblance of justice, are the only mechanism left to exert social control. Trust and respect for the rule of law is replaced by fear. And as Arendt warned, “Violence can destroy power; it is utterly incapable of creating it.

      Selam Haw Said,

      Well said. Aboy Musa’s son, Ahmed, did an interview with VOA, I believe it was either yesterday or a day before and the take away point was along the lines you’ve eloquently captured. When the interviewer asked who Aboy Musa was as a person to his family to his community, to the society of Eritrea at large. He used one word to describe him: “Aboy Musa mallet Haqqi malet eyyu”. Period.

      You know Said, what saddens me – of course, hindsight being 20/20 – is that Higdef was from the get go ready to erase Eritrean identity on all fronts. Consider this. When Gedab News gave an account of funeral procession, it stated that “From Akhria, [the funeral procession] passed by the Riga Somal neighbourhood” in defiance to the order that was given by the regime for the community to take it through the straight path; this would’ve been through mengeddi Edaga Hamus, a street I was born and raised in, which was fondly known as godena Degiat Hasen Ali Bekhit. A friend gently reminded me that these two thoroughfares, the Rega Somal route, which was known as Godena Degiat Ali Bekhit Himed were both renamed by some mountains from Sahel. This is an important part of that erasing the history of a community part, in this case the identity of Akhria. Imagine this. Enda Ali Bekhit and enda Aboy Musa Mohammed Nur are about two blocks apart. Somewhere between these homes of the two pillars, among many, in our neighborhood lies a home I was born and raised in. These two thoroughfares were named after enda aboy Ali Bekhit, because the family had been and continues to be part of what makes Akhriya the community that it is. So, for these two streets to be named something that the community couldn’t possibly relate to even if it had historical significance, what it is doing is erasing one in place of another. Couldn’t they have kept the street name as it had been for generations and find another major thoroughfare to name after Eritrea’s struggling years. After all, Eritrean money is named after historically important place in Eritrea. The country had a lot of places in which these important names could be used for without having to erase a community’s identity.

      When you erase the name, one identifies with from one’s childhood years, essentially, one’s identity is being erased. So, Higdef’s project of annihilation is now reaching its zenith. They have done away with the address names, it is now the turn of the people who live in it to be done away with. Little do they realize though that this is going to be a moment of do or die for the people of Akhriya and they are not taking it lying down. They are fighting back. People are dying for the sake of their community, for the sake of their identity, by extension for the sake of Eritrea as they knew and as they conceived of it. Certainly, this regime has no inkling of what it means to have an identity or history. Can anyone bring a story in which the man at the helm of power talking about abotatna, addetatna. A bunch of morons who suffer from identity crisis are trying to create human beings bereft of values of decency, humanity, identity, etc. Well, guess what, this is to its demise, because their project will fail colossally.

        Selam Beyan,
        you are ages ahead of us in the game of conscious awareness of the inevitable of the universality of human destiny. Your maturity and conscious resignation to the sanctity of the independence of human thought in the pursuit and attainment of the ultimate, a “Global Civil Society,” testifies to the relentless human endeavor on the trail of the “Spinozas,” that enshrined the universality of the quest for the ultimate truth, ultimate reality. I often ponder the sense of alienation, estrangement from one’s folks, witnessing your relentless struggle for the truth. However, in many ways,
        Bayne, I revert to the store of universal values that binds us, and remorse transforms into a sense of envy, how deserving of your humanity a person you are with the moral strength and courage of conviction that catapult you to the pedestals of the sages, of the saints.
        Eritrean of all woke of Muslim and Christian , In normal course Coreligionists are in the habit of addressing one another with the endearing appellation. Insecurities blind us into the delusion of the legitimacy of claims of righteousness on the basis of the comfort of the familiar. For progressive Eritrean and open. mind .The affinity that binds us stem from very deep respect for our humanity and impressive political maturity beyond the confines of the dictates of the urges of acceptance on the basis of creed and ethnic belonging.

          Dear Said,

          You are way too generous with your kind gestures in lavishing me with such accolades that I completely feel ill equipped to carry the burden of. I often wonder though, to borrow Ahmed Raji’s entry because I just read it right before I read yours, how I hope and beg the universe that “we don’t squander this”.

          A 93-year old brave soul to sacrifice his life for the wellbeing of Eritrea is unimaginable. At an age in which he should be treated as a treasure trough; as a library about to be burned down, to be taken away from us by the sheer force of nature that a human being can only live on this so long; after which, there goes the wisdom, the rich experience along with him, almost a century long that we could’ve squeezed out of him so much from. What do we do instead: Imprison him, quarantine and isolate him so his family couldn’t be near him when he passed on; never mind the inhumanity in that very act, just the sheer idiocy this entails, the mindset that can conceive this inconceivable act alone leaves one’s stomach churning and nauseated for days on end. To the chagrin and an ultimate mortification of thousands of Eritreans that the capacity and the capability of human beings to be this vicious is just way too scary to contemplate, coming no less from what one considers one’s own countrymen.

          Your reversion “to the store of universal values that binds us…the moral strength and courage of conviction that catapult” us all is an essential ingredient that we should never let die. There are elements from both ends of the spectrum blinded by their belief, so blinded in fact, they would be willing to commit genocide. We’ve seen that happen time and again in the history of the world. Eritrea was endowed with a unique, call it gene to avert this, so far. But, the rhetoric of hatred, the vicious verbal screed, the poisonous perfidy that comes out from some people who claim to be Eritreans worries me. But, I want to trust that our Eritrea’s moral universe, moral compass has some rudder left in it that will avert some such such temptations and urges of the cold-blooded reptilian kind.

    Thanks Gedab News for doing your due diligence in helping us separate the wheat from the chaff. In a closed society like ours where the only media is the State run, the rumor mill and conspiracy theories grab hold of the people in diaspora to a point of not being able to know what’s fact, what’s opinion, and what’s the truth. Of course, the regime in Eritrea wants us to occupy ourselves in trying to figure out the veracity of things, having no chance for accurate analysis. Sowing discord, infusing chaos rules the day. I am immensely grateful for Gedab News serving this critically important part of our right to know the right information.
