Fetsum: The beginning of the dictator’s demise and the self destructive ramification of Birhanu Negga ‘s criminology against the Eritrean people.

Whatever goes up touches-down because of gravity; extreme arrogance shall diffuse with divinity and unprecedented abuse against humanity must eventually stop because of veracity. Our patience and endurance may have been suffering exhaustion and pessimism

Whatever goes up touches-down because of gravity; extreme arrogance shall diffuse with divinity and unprecedented abuse against humanity must eventually stop because of veracity. Our patience and endurance may have been suffering exhaustion and pessimism in the unfortunate journey of the unique Eritrean style of oppression but the tyrannized revives and the adamant falls apart when the time comes for justice to resolve the contradiction in the Eritrean society with God’s will in the background. Like the journey to independence was extremely difficult and unimaginable to see the end, the journey to our freedom as obscure as it seems is about to reach the conclusion; yet only if we ignite the momentum using this golden opportunity at hand through the on going Global Initiative of our good citizens all over the place.

Afwerki chose to travel in one-way street from the onset despite life offering many opportunities for change. Year after year, the same things: denial, deception, confrontation, betrayal, arrogance, injustice, violence, abuse, humiliation, vengeance and the consequence; stress, anger, apprehension, exodus and death, suspicion, confusion and headache to himself and the society. There is no more space and time to enjoy at the rate of damage he inflicted to himself and humanity in general. Like a tornado must eventually quieten at a point in the motion, the turbulence in his life will be soon pacified for he and the society can no longer tolerate it at this level of destruction beyond the saturation point of extreme oppression against the Eritrean people.

The fact remains that there always exist side effects associated with all thoughts and actions; people cannot get away with what they do no matter what. They pay their Karma, an abstract quantifier of the consequences of human moral position on dualities of life, particularly the good and the evil: the price tag behind every human action. An alcoholic pays in terms of sickness, a rapist serves time, betrayal produces guilt and crimes against humanity face justice at the tail-end of the scuffle. We face karma for what we think and do as we harvest what we plant before we die.

The UN commission on Eritrea finally finds the brutal Eritrean dictator guilty of crimes against humanity!!!

It is hard to believe that the dictator once considered the Messiah of the Eritrean people lost their love and trust to tangle with their worst enemies in this last episode of his expedition to the graveyard. He traded love for DEMHIT and trust for Arbegnoch Ginbar to only discover them dissolving a head at a time until he touched down on Ginbot-7 for survival circumscribed by our people that are about to break the fences of fear and suck him out of his confinement to his clattered mortality. How unfortunate, how shocking so to say my dear people to see this maniac finally depending on the following emergency call from the toothless terrorist in view of the Ethiopians and mercenary in that of our society.

“ለህግደፍ ደጋፊዎች የግንቦት ሰባት 7 ኣባላት በሙሉ! በፈረንጅ ኣቆጣጠር ለሰኔ 20, 2016 ለህግደፍ መንግስት ለመደገፍ ሰለማዊ ሰልፍ ለመዉጣትያቀዳቹህ በሙሉ።የህግደፍን መንግስት ምክኒያት በማድረግ ኣውርጳም ይሁን በምእራብ ኣገሮች መጠለያ እንዲሰጣቹህ በመጠየቅ የስደተኛ ወረቀትተሰጥቷቹህ በሞኖር ላይ እያላቹህ ለህግደፍ መንግስት ለግብረ ኣሽባሪ ቁጥር የሌለው የኤርትራና የኢትዮጽያን ህዝብ ለፈጅ መግስት ነኝ ባይ ድጋፍለመስጠት ሰልፍ መውጣት በህግ የሚያስጠይቃቹህ ብቻ ሳይሆን በማይመለከታቹህ ኣገር ጉዳይ ዉስጥ መግባት በህግ የሚያስጠይቃቹህ መሆኑንኣውቃቹህ ከወዲሁ ኣስፈላጊዉን ጥንቃቄ በመውሰድ የሀንን የድጋፍ ሰላማዊ ሰልፍ መሳተፍ የለባቹህም።በተጠቀሰው ቀን የሚመለከተው ኣካል የቪድዮቀረጻ በማካሄድ በዚሁ ሰላማዊ ሰልፍ ለተሳተፍ ሰዎች የሚያሳይ ማስረጃ ለሚመለከተው ኣካል እንደሚያቀርብ ኣስቀወድሞ ያስጠነቅቃል። በተጨማሪምየሀንን ጉዳይ ለኤርትራዊያን የሚመለከት ጉዳይ እንጂ ለኢትጵያውያን ስልማይመለከት እጃቹህን መሰብሰብ ይኖርባቹሃል።”

Whatever the activity may imply, it is clear that the opportunist and good for nothing Berhanu Negga is rendered immaterial in the Ethiopian politics after the disintegration of DEMHIT from our country. This loser who lived mimicking a revolutionary leader of the bootless Ginbot 7 clearly knows that he does not have the cause, capacity, intelligence, dedicated fighters and determination to be an Ethiopian leader. Nor can he be a commander capable of threatening the Ethiopian government in whatever way one can imagine recalling that he was not even fit to stay with EPRP back in the days, when he run away to the Sudan abandoning it because of fear.

Reality states that some people may consider Berhanu important in East African politics but those who know him very well like me cannot help laughing at the notion for he is nobody but a desperate Merkato Chulule that blended street mentality with western academics to take the maximum advantage of the expired diehard Amhara Neftegnoch clique that still dreams of re-annexing Eritrea despite the country’s irreversible independence.

Berhanu is of course cursed with few negative qualities that a rational person cannot dispute: a conniving charisma by which he lived fooling the naïve and a mouth notoriously known for its deception and contradiction that earned him fragile popularity among the most backward elites, mainly the few riffraffs of the old monarchy responsible for causing one of the worst starvation episodes of the Ethiopian people. That mouth has lived flip-flopping whatever it has been saying just because the heart and the mind it represents have no principle and courage to change human condition in any society thereof including his own. It, however, served his career very well in two dimensions of the narrative:

The first is using his aging followers for money promising he will bless Ethiopia with the ports it lost to Eritrea; the reason he went to Asmara from the US as the “Chief of Staff of the Ethiopian Opposition” with no competence and gut to carry the responsibilities of his self-ornamented status until Molla Asgedom took him for a ride, brilliantly completing the assignment given to him by the Ethiopian regime (trashing him to the gutter of history as vividly witnessed and taught by his testimony in the media).

The second is flirting with the free falling dictator for the same reason mimicking the image of resistance against the Ethiopian regime with no armed forces in duty or serving the dictator’s proxy war fantasy as a lone wonderer in Asmara.

A testimony to this effect says that, “The Eritrean government has offered $500,000 to Ginbot 7, an exiled Ethiopian opposition political organization designated by Ethiopia as terrorist entity, according to a report on a US-based Ethiopia opposition media outlet. In an audio recording of an interview with the group’s chairman, [ ] Berhanu Nega admits that he received the funds. Ginbot 7 often uses Eritrean media as well Amsterdam-based opposition channel, Ethiopian Satellite Television to broadcast anti-regime campaigns.“Eritrea provides Ethiopian opposition group Ginbot 7 with $500,000 – ST6/13/2013”; (Sudan Tribune)

There is no doubt that Berhanu stashed the money for his personal interest with his few friends in the clique for he has no tangible evidence to show, otherwise. Yet, the chronic sufferer of hallucination and personality disorder syndrome is too attention starved to live ordinary life, needless saying he is a man that can do anything for MONEY as a seasoned street oriented hustler badly crafted in Merkato environment. With nothing going on in his political life, slick Berhanu, the commander in chief of his group that used to consist of about 10 “fighters” (according to Molla’s testimony) is simply taking advantage of the dictator’s terrified mind for yet another bonus through the outrageous act of agitating his cheerleaders abroad into “saving” his master from the incoming international verdict on his crimes against humanity. He is refilling his pocket from the dictator that has lost credibility and support from the Eritrean people to this point of emptiness using his two outstanding talents: said conniving charisma and deceptive and contradictive mouth.

“እቲ ንጸብጻብ መርማሪ ኮምሽን ሰብኣዊ መሰላት ንምቍንጻብ ካብ ህዝቢ ኤርትራ ክእክቦ ዝፈተነ ፌርማታት ብእምቢታ ህዝቢ ኤርትራ ፈሺሉ ምእካልስለዝኣበዮ ብጉንበት 7 ኣቢሉ ፌርማ ኢትዮጵያውያን ኣብ ምልማን ዝወደቐ ውርደተኛ ስርዓት ኢሳይያስ፣ ነቲ ኣብ ዋሺንግተን ዲሲን ስዊዘርላንድን ጀመሮወፍሪ ርድኡና፣ ኣብ ፍራንክፈርት ‘ውን ክቕጽሎ ይሸባሸብ ከምዘሎ ተፈሊጡ።”

Berhanu may underestimate our people as such. One thing must be clear, however, about the dire consequence of his criminal activity and interference against the Eritrean society (which is none of his business). He must understand that there is no easy and safe ride here for there is a reaction for any action and that he is taking a big risk against himself, making blood-money at the expense of the Eritrean people that individually or in group (5 million of us) have the right to retaliate at any moment of convenience. This is personal to every Eritrean and I seriously warn this petit mercenary to rethink his action and immediately stop meddling in our issue of justice and freedom, GET READY TO directly suffer the ramification, otherwise.

The question is what we have to do to challenge this hooliganism without taking the spiritually challenged Berhanu seriously in the upcoming show-time at Geneva! Although I don’t think he has the capacity to organize what he is trying to do based on his deception-polluted resume, I believe the team representing our case at The Hague should record all his activities and expose it in the court for additional evidence against the dictator in order to achieve a stronger verdict in favor of the people and for defensive cause of any citizen’s possible reaction to the irresponsible act of the terrorist.

What else should we now do to finalize the mission towards the freedom and democratic dream of our society behind international support? How can we crystalize the confrontation in our court taking advantage of this golden opportunity and neutralize the dictatorship besides massive demonstrations, knowing that he can still survive conditioned in power only within the society like his friend Bashir has been doing after found guilty of crimes against humanity by the ICC?

I believe we have to maximize the chance of crippling the dictator’s economic flow by seriously challenging the international mining companies (Nevsang et al) currently financing his dictatorship, preferably tightening the noose through active participation in the on going Grassroots movement navigated by the Global Initiative of our hard working intellectuals.

We have to close the political void by strengthening the best strategy on the table towards convincing the international community about our readiness to replace the dictatorship into peacefully transiting the society to democracy. We should massively support the movement by giving our names to statistically prove our capacity in this regard.

In conclusion, this is not time to hesitate or contemplate on failed venues of relief but crystallizing the Grassroots movement through solid unity in order to put the icing on the cake of the successful development on the dictator’s crimes against humanity. See you soon!!

    I will not give much weight to the politics of Berhanu Nega. He got to do what he is supposed to do to get the money from Hgdef to run his opposition organization based in Asmara.

  • Degol June 10, 2016

    Good article brother Fetsum!But I don’t understand why you are using bombastic words,starting from your title. Can you try to use common (simple) words? As you know english is not our mother language.

    It is not bad to spare one POSTER that goes, ” So-called Ethiopian opposition Guinbot 7: Keep your hand away from the international affairs of Eritrea”. Otherwise Fitzum has narrated adequately and exhaustively Berhanu Negga and his organisation’s moral bankruptcy.

  • eritrean tigers group June 11, 2016

    berhanu nega(አያ ጅሎ) is right now under the follow up of Eritrean tigers group! we have said many times he should stop trying against the interest of the eritrean people but he could not stop.He will get his price openly soon!

  • Efrem June 11, 2016
