Voice of Assenna: Panel Discussion on the Upcoming Symposium to Commemorate Detained Eritrean Journalists & Artist KIros Asfaha’s Show in Israel – Mon, May

Review overview
  • AHMED SALEH !!! May 2, 2016

    Eritreans know the truth behind the imprisonment of our journalists
    but double standard played role for the reluctance showed to their
    defense . Issayas main enemy are intellectuals who speak their mind
    and to suppress entire population he succeed to silence free speech
    mouth piece by arresting elements that represent public voice echoes.
    They paid heavy price for freedom of speech with a pen as weapon the
    same sacrifices Eritreans pay price for national cause .
    It is not late to advocate and raise awareness of forgotten fellow Eritrean brothers/sisters in dungeons .

      Brother Ahmed you are right, I have the ultimate respect to the profession of journalism and the people who dedicate their life with passion and fairness to it.I always aspired to be one as a kid and ended up being a barefoot liberation soldier.What I do for a living today as a full fledged adult, even though it is descent, was not even in my wildest dreams.As for the d..k head tyrant,the very sound of intellectual scares the daylight out of him, that is why he surrounds himself with people like kisha ,the picture in says it all, the young Chinese businessmen telling him where to sign, I wonder if the liquor store clerk read the terms of the contract.Then again, why should he care, it is not his.

        Selam brother C.
        The question of Kisha and Issayas bonded relationship revealed when he
        ignored public complaints in 1994 Washington D.C. conference to see him
        flown for Eritrea as head of treasury department . And the funny part
        his blind followers in diaspora were scared to express any objection
        but they still stood loyal for his authority even after betrayal on
        Tegadelti who protested and disabled veterans killings .
        Truth to be told , ISSAYAS enjoyed free ride on shaping our national
        affairs the way it fits at his lifespan in Eritrean politics .
        At this moment we observe back and forth words of accusation whom to
        blame . I think we must look on the mirror to see ourselves reflection
        then We may memorize all faults that brought us into this mess .
        ZIBEREKET XEHAYNA ZINEGHESE NIGHUSNA rhetoric destroys free society .

    Thanks for the organizers of the event for the memory of jailed journalists that is planned 28 May.

    Dawit was my teacher for 3 years at Asmara comprehensive secondary school, he thought me Physics from grade 9-11, at same time while he was editor for ” Mekalih newspaper”.

    Memhir Dawit was liked by every body, he was a friend to everybody, he was the best physics teacher in that school , we were enjoying his teaching, he knew us all of by our names and he used to come with gifts during the X-Mass time. He used to tell us jokes at times, he was a gifted person, fit for teaching and journalism.

    I remember one time he and other 2-3 journalists were arrested for a week and released if I’m not mistaken early 2011. He was absent for a week, we he come we asked him if he was ok, I remember to tell us, “we were arrested for only being a journalist, and released with a warning”

    Those who doesn’t know to Dawit he is the one with a graduation gown on the photo.
