This interview is extremely important. Mr Redee Kifle (Bashay) comes across as versed in the Eritrean political, cultural, and linguistic matters. He is story teller who can connect with our society at various levels. He has the knowledge and the empathy, he is articulate, among many of his assets.
I would like to kindly request the Assena to give him another opportunity in areas of his choice..

I greatly appreciated Mr, Bashay’s worthy interviews. This said, I hope it is not caddish to respond briefly to his critics his worthy analysis. Anyway I will restrict myself to two points.
First- concerning to young Eritrean in the diaspora I agree with Mr. Bashay. I think his point is well taken.Eritrean youth in the diaspore have low levels of political interest and knowledge. Their views and conceptions are based on a restricted understanding of politics and they lacked faith, or trust, in politicians. These have alienated them from the contemporary Eritrean politics as well as the difficulties they perceived to grasp. So they feel as there is lack of opportunities for them to engage politically
Generally, I comprehend young people consistently feel powerlessness and limited opportunities for them to engage in politics; even some of them do not think anything could be done to arouse their interest. Because young people conceptualized politics in a limited and narrow way as such they perceived the subject as boring and irrelevant to their lives at present. Indeed young people often reported that they were preoccupied with other interests and activities that dominated their lives, which resulted in their having little time to devote to politics.
However, in spite of all these damn problems, we also see a lot of young people involved in a wide range of issues. For instance, as Mr. Bashay mentioned as an example the YPFDJ are more interest in politics of their mother land and their organization. Across the sample, they propose various initiatives for stimulating their interest and aim at making politics more accessible. So I have great admiration and respect to the YPFDJ unlike the other scatter-brained revulsion or horror groups of youth. Cont………

Second- I do not agree with Mr. Bashay’s back story of rectification. I was one of the fighters who found SAGM. I do know Bashay personaly but I really believe he and all the senior and junior ELF cadres’/ friends fled the struggle tactically did not to shutter the window for independence. Hence, now talking about independence, freedom, democracy, and criticizing others is ridiculous.
However, I understand there are many citizens abroad who have fought for the country, dedicating their lives to the armed struggle, independence and national services. Their stake in the country must be respected. This government should not deny them the opportunity to have their say in the way their country is governed. That is why I am proudly to say because at the dawn of the twenty-first century, democracy is more widely accepted and practiced than ever before.
At no time in history have so many people enjoyed the right to participate, through elections, in the government of their country. But I also believe the spread of democracy from abroad should not captivate us into triumphalism. In that spirit, I wish you a most productive understand. This kind of struggle cannot make indentation nor to bring peace, reconciliation, and justice to Eritrea. So let us not look at our work as the export of one form of government from one part of the world to another. Rather, let us focus on common challenges to governance, and ensure that democracy is at the heart of our solutions.
