Semere Russom: The Alleged Notorious

Killer of Khartoum is now in Addis Ababa

The Eritrean dictator, Isaias Afeworki, has the other day appointed Semere Russom as his Ambassador in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, where many Eritreans opposed to the repressive regime in Asmara have taken refuge since a long time. This is a sincere warning to them and other Eritreans who intend to visit Addis Ababa in the future.

Semere Russom was dictator Isaias Afeworki’s envoy in the Sudan for many years since the mid-1970s. Prominent political and military leaders of the ELF were among the many victims inside the Sudan of Semere and his boss, Isaias Afeworki, in the years before and after independence. For example Yemane Teklegiorgis, a veteran EPLF fighter and member of its security outfit (Halewa Sewra) was with Semere Russom the day Haile Gharza was murdered inside Khartoum in 1984. Yemane, now an author of a book on those and similar grisly killings organized by Semere Russom in the Sudan, will hopefully retell the story himself as he already did in writings and his bold interviews with Eritrean opposition mass media.

Among Semere’s ELF victims were: Haile Gharza, Saeed Saleh; Woldedawit Temesghen; Idris Hangela, and Mahmoud Hasseb


But Haile Gharza was not the only victim of Semere Russom and his master, Isaias Afeworki. Earlier on 5 June, 1983, Saeed Saleh was murdered in Kassala. Woldedawit Temesghen fell on 20 July 1985  followed by the murder of Idris Ibrahim Hangala on 20 September 1985; Mahmoud Hasseb on 3 September 1989.


Even the former leader of the ELF army, Abdalla Idris, was targeted personally by Semere Russom in Khartoum although the targeted figure could skillfully escape death.

Other assassination/kidnap victms: Michael Ghaber; W/Mariam Bahlibi; Teklebrhan G/Tsadiq, Mohammed Ali Ibrahim.


Semere Russom and those who followed in his footsteps in the Sudan also continued the killings and kidnappings  from the Sudan.  Among the earliest victims were: Michael Ghaber who was targeted for killing by two identified assassins in 1989, and later killed in a mysterious “accident” on 25 May, 1922.  Earlier to Michael Ghaber’s death/murder,  two top leadership members of the ELF-RC, Woldemariam Bahlibi and Teklebrhan Ghebdretsadiq (Wedi Bashai) were kidnapped from Kassala on 26 April 1992 and their whereabouts is not known to this day. Tens of other leading freedom fighters were assassinated kidnapped by the likes of Semere Russom, among them the EPDP leadership member Mohammed Ali Ibrahim, who was kidnapped from Kassala on 12 February 2012.


“Ambassador” Semere Russom’s mission in Addis Ababa as of this week will be organizing work for the security agents of the Asmara regime who reportedly  numbered not less than 230 as of the date of dictator Isaias Afeworki’s visit to Addis Ababa between 14-16 July 2018. Semere Russom was not only an enemy of rival freedom fighters but also was anti-Eritrean struggle for freedom until the 1970s.

    “The camel of Iseyas Afworki keeps marshing” hahaa toward to a cliff. The camel you refer is a blind one it doesn’t know where it’s heading worse her rider is also blind. The funny thing is that you and like you the cheerleaders are blind and deaf. You most likely destination is in a dust bin of history. As for
    Simon G he is a decent guy who represent the feeling of all concered Eritreans. You and cos tried hard to undermine to those few decent guys by rising orign and religion. What problem do you have with Akeleguzay and Islam? What kind of Eritrea do you want to have without both Akeleguzay& Islam? You’re immature idiots. How could you love someone from Tenben but not to the one party of you. I presume u are from one of the two zones. Your sheer stupidity is infinite. In Eritrea we are all related by blood and merrage and say with full confidence you have close relative in akeleguzay. Why you are so dammy is beyond me. Pls wise up this forum is no for children like you it is for grown ups.

    • Bajet July 26, 2018

      You are not right in the head, are you old coward and hypocrite ass hole.
      Generally when people {especially the weak cowards and backwards) are intoxicated with hate,
      they draw illogical and hypocritical conclusions about issues and problems, don’t they???
      You might think you are smart and outspoken but there is nothing worse than getting big-headed.
      It is really strange weal/coward and confused people like yourself talk about Tembein/Woyane
      in every equation or as excuses and cover ups of their past sheer losses and crimes against
      humanity. Egyptian or Akeleguzay shepherd, you are not fooling or impressing us with your lousy and garbage comment. Get your bloody spelling right too: “marching not freaking marshing! Last, please brother Dawit, ignore this damaged beyond repair Akeleguzay hatela.

      • Bajet July 26, 2018

        correction/addition: please read as ‘weak’/coward and confused people like hatela Tes

        • Dawit July 27, 2018

          Many thanks brother Bajet for sorting out the Akeleguzay lousy shepherd. Sadly, it seems he chewed more than he could swallow but may be he thought he was dealing with amateurs and dumb shepherds like himself. You also forgot to correct his spelling of: ‘merrage’!!!! He means marriage!

  • zeregabir Teaghes July 26, 2018

    Please garbage your News. If you are Eritrean talk on what will be done and not what has been done.
    Semere is charismatic and calibered Diplomat.
    Sewra ate lot but not because of revenge but a process. Den Koro

    • SenAfe July 26, 2018

      Zeregabir Teaghes,
      It seems sadly you are “Zitemihare DenKoro” too. But, I agree with you about gedli
      being an evil process to achieve a fake so-called independence and an alien Arabic
      language for Eritrea. Now, lets have your side of story which is not garbage, of course!!
      In order to talk and know about future don’t you bloody think we have to first know about the past? Furthermore, if Semere is indeed a charismatic and calibered diplomat then how would
      you describe yourself, a charismatic and calibered fraudster or else???????????

    Fraternal Genocide War – Eritrean Style
    Eritrean Liberation Force vs Eritrean People’s Liberation Force
    I. Preamble
    As I commented on another occasion, the name of the Protagonists (or Antagonists) are exactly the same, in intention, with the exception of the superfluous addition of the word “people” – as if it matters, since we are talking about “PEOPLE”, obviously NOT about our ancestors, the Monkeys! So, what is the point of having the same title but still fighting each other to DEATH ? The answer hurts, deeply. But still we have to face it, lest history repeats again for the benefit of charlatans and hood looms who are naturally twisted to admire the liquidation of ordinary people for their own satisfaction. History is full of such twisted Souls including the various Masters of “ERITREA” in its era of one-hundred-thirty (130) years of servitude.

    II. Discussion
    Now, let us go to the present absolute, vicious, heartless dictator Issayas Afewerki Abraha Miratch — who manipulated the innocent, emotional, Eritrean population for the last fifty-four [54] years. He was 21-years old when he joined the only one, and only one, Eritrean Liberation Front. As his first-year University class mate predicted, i.e. after seeing him off at a bus station, Issayas, the first-year failure student, was able to split the Eritrean struggle into two – and eventually succeeded in liquidating the famous and vanguard Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF). It is a DESTRUCTIVE achievement that no one can match. Issayas is historically responsible for:
    a) instigating INDIGENOUS WAR for the liquidation of Eritreans by Eritreans;
    b) the annihilation of two-hundred thousand [200,000 guessing] Eritreans in totality;
    c) destruction of physical environment of Eritrea; and
    d) dislocation (with trauma) of Eritreans to various parts of the Globe.
    In short, Issayas is a CRIMINAL – Numero uno. He should be treated as such, but in a civilized manner. Beyond that, to entertain the idea of treating the 74-year old Issayas as an honourable citizen and contemplating of making a hero out of him is tantamount as the Tigrigna wisdom goes ካላአይ ሞት፤ ነቲ የዋህ ህዝቢ ኤሪትራ።

    We must remember – we owe it to those who sacrificed their Life as well as to those who were goaded to war at their young age—thus taking away, hard as it is to ‘swallow’, the natural YOUNG LIFE out of them, for ever. To have a war against outside enemy force is one thing; but to institute internal war for individual ambitious benefits is entirely different. The Eritrean people went to war and sacrificed their precious Life in TWO parallel WARS i.e. INTERNAL and EXTERNAL WARS, taken simultaneously, unbelievable as it may seem. Who is responsible for the consequential horrendous loss of Life and destruction of a country? The question can only be answered by the Eritrean people

    III. Conclusion
    If the Eritrean people continue to favour the prism of RELIGION and REGION, it is tantamount to placing a DEATH verdict on the country, named by colonialist force as “ERITREA”. Is that what we want? Is that what the Eritrean Intellectuals are propagating for their own individual glory and benefit? If that is so, the “WORLD” is only too happy to make a ጉዚ out of it for their individual benefits. ADIO! “ERITREA” in that FINALE. THE END

    • Tes July 27, 2018

      Dear rezen,

      I can’t add any thing but admiration. You said it all 55+years how that con man deluded the Eritrean people to think he is one of us and he is fighting for us and Eritrea. When you think about it it is quite hard to believe a single person using our weakness and
      single-handedly destroy the country. What makes the whole episode worse is that he isn’t even smart or clever a drop out student or dismissed in the first year.

      • Deglel July 27, 2018

        Tes adgi, did you also complete your elementary school of Akeleguzay or you are a drop out and where the hell have you bloody been in last 55 yrs then, idiot wahid???
        Let me give you a bit of advice – don’t admire or worship individuals never again just like what you’ve been doing with Rezen, you also sadly have been doing it with individuals like DIA and others. Individuals are just there for their own interests and fame, nothing else. Lets hope it doesn’t take you another 55 yrs to come to terms and reality!

        • Tes July 27, 2018

          ደጋል ወዲ አድጊ። Iseyas is your cousin.
          I can admire you with your stupidity. You top all fools and idiots.

          • Yohan July 27, 2018

            Good one Tes and really thank you for the laugh of
            Degal wedi adgi – I would be proud to have Isaias as my cousin.
            Was Osama bin Laden your cousin too as you are a kondaf diQala? I am proud to be a cousin of Isaias b/c he has been wetting your filthy Akeleguzay pants/jelebiya anta TSAHITSAHI hatela.

          • Genet-Original July 31, 2018

            That is a good one.
            I will add, lousy. his head is infested with lice.

          • Genet-Original July 31, 2018

            Tes, don’t mind those multiple names, probably is one sick person. They are not Eritreans. Therefore, they are irrelevant. Even at this time, when their home state Tigray is under siege, they are here to divide Eritreans with anythings they can. They are lousy. They are saying they are proud to be related to DIA the killer. finally they are admitting who they are. They will never change. DIA is going to die soon. we will need a wall.

    We told you several times that the so called Eritrean GHEDLI was not a revolution at all,but banditry ,Jehadism and Issu’s 100% ownership……Issu is now controlling not only the small Bahre-Negash but the whole Ethiopia..100,000,000 ppl have been singing “Issu -Issu” .So, do you have any chance ? No=0%.
    እቲ ካብ ኩሉ ዘሕዝን ድማ ናይዞም ጀብሃ ዝበሃሉ ናይ ጅሃዳውያን ተረፍ መረፍ እዩ ። ካብታ ዝነብርዋ ሽፍትነት ናብ ሱዳን ፡ክብ ሱዳን ናብ ፈቆዶ ዓለም ፡ ሕጂ ድማ ካብ ኢትዮጵያ ። ኣንቱም ሰባት ሓደ ሰብኣይ ን50 ዓመታት የጓይዮም ኣሎ።ሕጂ ምርኩስ ሒዝካ ናበይ ??ብሰንኪ? መንእሰያት ከለዉ ዝወሰንዎ ፍጹም ዘይሙዂኑይ ሽፍትነት ፣ ኩልና ንስሕና ኣሎና።

      So, YOU ARE TECLAY!!!!! >>>> THE FAMOUS
      A blogger made you famous by declaration that YOU are ONE and ALL with a string of names (six or so) !!!!!
      To me, as a Reader, YOU seem to be a normal human being [like anyone of us] with his own ideas [like any one of us],
      I HONESTLY fail to understand the rational for the claim that YOU are ONE and ALL
      Do you have a clue?
      Or are we — out of hopelessness — getting to be paranoid by the ghost of Issyas Afewerki Abraha Miratch ?
      Welcome back, Teclay., the ordinary Human Being. .

      Tigray is under siege! BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Genet-Original July 31, 2018

      You are needed in Tigray pronto!

      Tigray is under a great danger in case you haven’t heard, the knife is out for your people. Therefore,
      leave the Eritrean business to us Eritreans. The shame is on you. you don’t even have a place to call home. No nationality, you don’t belong anywhere. you are a permanent homeless. Each time Eritreans have concern about an issue, you are there to discourage and demoralize us. why is that? would be better for you to just forget about us and go back to Ethiopia. It seems, Eritreans and Eritrea or the red sea state are living in your head rent free..

      Border demarcation now!!!!

  • Teclay July 28, 2018

    So this guy is in addis. Oky. He has a repetition of killing Eritreans. So, what are we waiting for? Addis is a big city with a lot of people. He is old and weak. Probably, he tends to nap anywhere. He can be helped to permanently nap. .
