    It was good interview
    1,Amanuel ,if i understood clearly ,he advised you to continue your education .That is very important advice .Amanuel ,as you know better than us .Eritrean problem is deep rooted.So,if Isaias were not be there,Abedela or G-Mariam would be there (the same dictator ) .So ,Eritrea in the form you expected during your Sahil time will never be on the ground .In fact it is already a failed sate ,but officially it will be in the list of the failed states along Somalia and Libya after the departure of its father – Issu…..So,as you can’t change anything ,it is better to continue your study,if you have not been doing it already .You can be a Dr. or professor if you invest your time in education.
    2,,Dr.Afeworki called for discussion .,,Yes,Amanuel as a journalist you should be a neutral …So ,i hope the first real discussion (debate ) will be between Yosief G and 3 Ghedli lovers .

    Dear Followers of Radio Assena,

    I enjoyed listening to the interview of Dr. Aferworki Paulos, who covered a vast area of time and space regarding the Eritrean society. I appreciate his reverence and reference to the wisdom of our ancestors coming from traditional settings, i.e., villages (countryside), which was fashionable to denigrate them in 1960s-1970s as “haggies” meaning backward by the city-youth, who were looking toward East or West for civilization and progress. Technological advance aside, socio-cultural value of Eritreans across ethnicity is something to be appreciated, preserved and promoted. However, Eritrean freedom movements, especially, EPLF deliberately dismantled the traditional administration system in favor of its “new revolutionary culture,” which has ended up to be a nightmare to our people now.
    Dr. Afeworki also sent very important messages which impressed me – first is to value education and find solution to the Eritrean problem from within; second, to look to the continent of Africa, which we are part of. We need to be proud of our continent and look for opportunities within Africa as it will be the next continent the West and East will focus for resources and development. If we position ourselves, we can be beneficiaries and benefactors. Whether we focus locally or continentally, the bottom line assessing our strength and resources to resolve our predicaments. Kudos Amanuel for bringing guests with such plain speaking scholars to educate your listeners. I also would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Afeworki Paulos

      I agree! Dr. Afewerki’s humble interview that addresses the vast array of Eritrean’s cultural value, society, and assembly leadership in the good days. The culture and educational value our parents and our grandparents saw but didn’t have the opportunities themselves. The roots caused by the Ghedli’s misleading leadership. After 1991, the doubts and dilemmas of the PFDJ systematic oppression were at an early stage which led us into the current culture, tradition, and generation gap. He stated clearly that how important it is to stop seeing ourselves like we are above other African countries. We must cultivate and produce capable youth by promoting and strengthening our people in all aspects of national, regional and international development processes that establish a healthy society. Dr. Afewerki assessed how important it is to hold on to our culture and traditional values. As a nation we must identify our strengths and resources to overcome the mainstream conceptions of the systematic collapse to cure our dilemmas as a nation.

      Thank you for your wisdom, Dr. Afewerki.
