Why I Left the Eritrean Opposition

One common characteristic among the so called ‘Eritrean Opposition’ is that they are all gamblers that gamble with everything Eritrea. They literally oppose anything Eritrean and the only time they celebrate is when something bad happens to the country or its citizens. They have less to do with bettering off the country or the people but more to do for Ethiopia to give what it couldn’t achieve in the battle ground.

One of the greatest aims of the riffraff is that they hope to incinerate Eritrea, go-back, and start fresh as if innocent. They want to enter Eritrea as if free of crimes with no one to sue them, hold them to account for their crimes.  Continue reading Eritrea: What Will Drafting a Constitution Mean to the Criminals in the Diaspora?
