Eritrea: Dispatches from Team Arbi Harnet Asmara: General Manjus and his blood drenched castle

In Eritrea crime pays, and in this case it paid the owner of this house handsomely. The family who live in this house in Asmara’s central district (Kebabi: Makel Ketema) at number near  Godena Sematat (Martyr’s Street) street number 1A 175/175-2/4  never know the pressures of electricity outages, their house is powered by generators that seem to supply endless power that illuminates their luxurious residence in the frequently dark Asmara nights.

They don’t seem to have any trouble in powering their exclusive cars (the son owns a dark blue Toyota Rav 4)  and younger members of the family don’t even seem to be bothered by the frequent giffas (raids) targeting other youngsters their age.

Eritrea: Situation on the Ground Report Part 1 - Missing President


It has been more than a month since Isaias Afwerki, the President of Eritrea, hasn’t been seen in public for more than a month. This is unusual for a man who has made his public appearance on the nation’s mass media almost a daily occurrence.

The last time the President was seen in Eritrean media was in Oct 11, 2013, when he received and held talks with the Council of Ministers of the Desert Locust Control Organization for East Africa (DLCO-EA), when the organization met in Asmara for its 58th regular meeting.

Indicative of the ever worsening economic state of affairs in Eritrea, various towns and cities in the country are quickly turning into ghost towns with hardly any noticeable presence of business activities.

Eritrea: A message regarding the public memorial for Lampedusa Victims at the Martyer’s Cemetery in Asmara

A message regarding the public memorial for Lampedusa Victims at the Martyer’s Cemetery in Asmara, planned for tomorrow has been circulating like wild fire throughout Asmara and further afield. This has inevitably become an issue of grave concern to Eritrean authorities who are currently deploying large number of army contingents from reservists of the 52nd and 53rd Divisions. The new deployments are reinforcing the Demhit (TPDM Ethiopian opposition) mercenaries who are already on duty patrolling Asmara.

Additionally the government is spreading rumours through its informal networks (known as 03 locally), stating that the new operation is under the command of General Philipos, renowned for his ruthlessness. The rumours state that the track record of the government is such that it has never tolerated any form of protest including that of the disabled veterans who were gunned down from the hilltops at Maihabar in 1994.

Eritrea: Needs of Eritrean Refugees Demand Attention

The conditions of the compound for unaccompanied boys were especially bleak. Boys sleep in approximately 30 feet by 30 feet concrete rooms on foam mattresses spread out on the hard floor. There is no electricity, no mosquito nets. There is one social worker to address the needs of the hundreds of clients in the center at any given time. There are no organized activities, education, or recreational equipment of any kind available to these young people. Other than a very limited health clinic and basic provisions, there are essentially no services of any kind. Kids often go missing from the reception center, assuming that they can find better conditions on their own. They sometimes run away to the refugee camps, try to make the risky journey home to Eritrea, travel to other parts of Ethiopia, or try to go to other parts of the world. These children are vulnerable to all kinds of exploitation and abuse including smuggling and trafficking.

Eritrea: Report from Massawa: Copper and Terror

Most of the companies involved in these mining projects are from the West – mainly from Canada, Australia and UK. And most of the expertise of these companies comes, accordingly, from these three countries. At a lower level, there are some Eritreans in the staff working in supplies, accounts and other clerical works; and many of the machinery operators and technicians are also Eritreans. But the daily laborers that make the bulk of the labor force used in these mining companies happen to be from the National Service, who are working like slaves, with inadequate food supply, medieval quarters, and no payment at all (except for the usual salary that all those who serve in national service are paid: 10 US dollars per month). In this mining work full of hazards, they are not even provided with mining clothes, safety shoes, goggles, gloves, etc. What is surprising is that the foreign workers hired by these foreign companies (Ex: Ghanaians and South Africans), and paid high salaries in US dollars, are provided with all the safety clothes required.
