Eritrea: Frozen and Reshuffled, Again

E-mail Print
Sources from Asmara (Eritrea) indicate that the Afwerki administration has been on a panic mood since the day the UN has passed the resolution to impose sanctions on Eritrea. President Isaias Afwerki has fallen into old proven tactics that served him well in times of crisis. Information leaked out from Colonel Tesfaldet Habteselasie office (President’s Office) indicate that as a number of people that have been sidelined for a long time (in the Orwellian language of the PFDJ ruling party, “frozen”) are being “reactivated” to resume important posts, various reshufflings are also being made.

Some of the important names floating around are Tewelde Kelati, the Administrator of Zoba Maekel, is appointed to be Minister of Fishery. Kahsai Ghebrehiwet, the Administrator of Gash-Barka, is reshuffled to be the Administrator of Zoba Maekel.

Musa Raba, one who has been “frozen” is appointed to be the Administrator of Gash-Barka. Brigadier General Tekie (aka Blata) who has been the Head of Sports has been relegated in a minor post at the Air Force Administration. It is believed the recent defection of the national soccer team has to do with his falling out of the President’s favor.

The names of more individuals will be provided as soon as we verify them.

The reshufflings are not confined to individuals; administrative regions are not spared either. In Eritrea, there are not only civilian administrative zobas but also military administrative regions, the latter superimposed on the former. This superimposition is made with the intention of giving the military the upper hand in administrative matters that even concerns civilians. There used to be five such military administrative regions. Now they have been collapsed into three: the Red Sea area (North and South) into one; Maekel and Debub into another one, and Gash-Barka and Anseba into yet another one.

Some officials are saying the reason behind this consolidation is that the number of generals that the President trusts in giving them regional administrative powers is shrinking. Again, as we get more details, we will provide names.

Sources in Asmara have also indicated that Preisdent Issias Afewrki had a secret meeting with Muammar al-Gaddafi on January 11, 2010. As soon Asmarino has verifed the information we will provide you with additional Information.

Eritrea: Dispatches from Team Arbi Harnet Asmara: General Manjus and his blood drenched castle

In Eritrea crime pays, and in this case it paid the owner of this house handsomely. The family who live in this house in Asmara’s central district (Kebabi: Makel Ketema) at number near  Godena Sematat (Martyr’s Street) street number 1A 175/175-2/4  never know the pressures of electricity outages, their house is powered by generators that seem to supply endless power that illuminates their luxurious residence in the frequently dark Asmara nights.

They don’t seem to have any trouble in powering their exclusive cars (the son owns a dark blue Toyota Rav 4)  and younger members of the family don’t even seem to be bothered by the frequent giffas (raids) targeting other youngsters their age.
