Release Of Hussein Khelifa And Hamdoi Expected Anytime

If the Sudanese authorities keep the promise they gave to different people, Hussein Khelifa, the leader of of the ELF, and Abdelah Hamdoi, a member of the leadership council of the same organization, are expected to be released from prison anytime.

One of the sources that communicated with the Sudanese authorities told Gedab News, “They have made a promise and I have no reason to believe they will not honor their promise.”

Hussein Khelifa is a veteran of the liberation struggle and was a senior military commander of the ELF. He has been struggling for freedom of his country and people since 1965. His colleague Abdela Hamdoi is also a veteran of the ELF.

Since the two leaders were arrested on January 30, 2016, many people have intervened on their behalf and appealed to the Sudanese authorities to secure their release.

Over the last few days, tribal leaders from Eastern Sudan, as well as dignitaries and influential people in the region have been pressuring the Sudanese authorities to release the two leaders.

In addition, several diplomats representing international organizations and countries of the region have appealed and exerted pressure on the Sudanese authorities to release the two leaders. Several human rights groups have also requested clarification on the circumstances of the arrest from the Sudanese authorities.

Since it signed a security agreement with the Eritrean regime of Isaias Afwerki, the government of Sudan has disallowed Eritrean opposition forces from operating in its territories. The Eritrean regime has a considerable influence on the Sudanese federal government and the regional governments of Eastern Sudan where its security and intelligence operative roam freely.

The Eritrean regime is known to have kidnapped many Eritrean dissidents from the streets of Sudanese towns with the cooperation from corrupt Sudanese security officers, who often arrest leaders of the opposition forces and hand them over to the Eritrean security across the border.

In mid-February, 2012, an Eritrean opposition figure, Mohammed Ali Ibrahim, a senior member of the Eritrean Peoples’ Democratic Party (EPDP), disappeared after he left his house in Kessala, Sudan. His whereabouts are not known yet.

    Dear LT and all awate friends,

    I think there is good news now that they are released. Let us make sure.

    • Dayphi

      merhaba ya Najm,
      indeed, some eritrean sites have reported that the two leaders have already been released and that Mr. Hussein Khalifa flew or enroute to Addis. As you said, lets get confirmation from ELF news conference.

      • Kokhob Selam

        Dear Dayphi,

        Sudan’s government will not have choice actually. unlike before their is a network internationally fallowing developments and hero Eritreans are are exposing everything. besides good reacting department is there and PFDJ will even directly pay prices. Now, Sudan will even allow opposition to move freely and the bad days are ahead for PFDJ.

        • Dayphi

        Hi Sele,
        Kshafa? It seems you put this post in wrong place. how are you bro….But what happened to PFDJ sales department? Is that they couldn’t provide ladies or no more demand ?

  • adarob

    Please read”understand tigrayet”

    SebaH alKhier Hayet,
    The Menfiit Filter picked up a “Qidmi Eisran Hamushten Amet EtioPia tetiTseniH..” noise signal.
    Got to admire Saay’s the 43rd Bush like head on one on one, bear knuckles with “The Man.” Every laborer on “Hade Gnbot” recognizes the oppressor is “The Man.” Not only the communists. Americans just have an extra Labor Day in “Meskerem.” “Ahgurawi beAl SheQalo/Harestot iyyu Awet nHafash.” One sentence from the classics allowed by “yOM AL SEBit” boundaries and jurisdictions. “Syllogism.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy58Gc1Tce0

    The only real terrorist in Eritrea is Isaias Afewerki and his thugs.

      • Ali

        Sorry bro, I don’t understand what you are saying. But, yes I did read hdgf are terrorist and I 100% agree. 🙂

  • L.T

    If our GVT cought them I think it’s not good idea to have them becouse they are so old and they cost alot so my suggestion is to release and deport to where they come from.Eritrea has no afford to have them.

    • adarob

      Hahaha do you mean Hussein Khelifa and Abdelah Hamdoi come från tigray and will be deported to tigray? Don’t worry every one knows thier origin 🙂 What about you?

      • Alhande M Shejeli

        Adorb are u related to the people of Tigray even thru marriage if not ethically?

  • adarob

    How come your name sounds like “boko haram” if you are anti terrorists? :)That means you don’t know the diffrenence between terrorists and free men like Hussein Khelifa, that are fighting to free you from the mantra of Awet-N-Hafash idiocy. A person of the lowest order of mental retardation would tell you the diffrenence. There is no respected hafash in Eritrea today. You seems to have a very naive attitude toward politics.

    • kogne

      Hussein khalifa fighting to free you from the mantra of awet nihafash, you are kidding ,there is proverb in tigrinia(BI GI ZIE WUBE ZI ZE MEMES ,WUBE KIBIL MOTE) jebha died 1981 that’s it, and the leaders of jebha like Hussein khelifa after jebha they cant find a job, the only money they can make to survive is, the only choice they have is, the same thing they been doing after Eritrea Ethiopia border war, to go to Ethiopia just collect 20-30 people open office give organizational name ELA, EPDP EEEEE ,etc get TUKABO from SANAA FORM, MELES, etc , stay in a hotel in addis ,they did nothing,they been fighting each other for money they just been making a living,thats laughable to tell as they are fighting to liberate as from PFDJ,thats shame on you

      • adarob


        Ok! is their imprisonment in sudan the same as staying in a hotel to you?

        • kogne

          adarob,i dont support any eritrean to be imprisoned (siga entewodeket hamed hiza titisi e) i know hussein khalifa with his military walkie talkie during jebha ,i dont like any eritrean to be harmed,we are a family,we have different ideas thats healthy.we are different political vision, i believe thats good too ,but i dont know when we are going to accustom that ,every body have his right to believe whatever he wants,But i dont agree when you said hussein khalifa is fighting to liberate you from mantra awet nihafash, dont take me wrong i dont support their imprisonment i pray for them to be released soon
