A Somber New Years’s Eve In Eritrea

January 1, 2018 Written by: Gedab News

New Year’s Eve of 2018 has been the most somber night compared to how Eritreans celebrated the night in the past. Reached by phone in Jeddah, An American visitor to Eritrea Said, “Eritreans who do not need a reason to party strolled lazily with nowhere to go,”

The top echelon of the ruling party, however, gathered in several private houses and places and partied with their select guests

Most nightclubs, bars, and hotels remain closed by the government for allegedly hoarding the local currency, Nakfa, to avoid depositing it in the banks.

Since closed businesses are not able to access their accounts, they couldn’t pay their employees who face uncertainty on how to pay their bills. They seem to be less concerned about celebrating the new year’s eve as they did in the past.

Residents of Asmara dressed in their best suits and strolled in the streets with empty pockets lamenting the lack of entertainment venues in a new year’s eve, in a city that has always celebrated it extravagantly.

Private party organizers who rented halls and DJs for the night couldn’t sell enough tickets, “they are now licking their wounds” according to a source.

Meanwhile, Isais Afwerki spent the day in Abu Dhabi hosted by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zaid, the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates.

It’s not known whether Isaias attended a new year party in Abu Dhabi since he spent most of the day undergoing regular medical checkup in an Emirates military hospital. In previous years, he used to frequently travel to Qatar for his medical checkup. But since he allied himself with the Saudi-Emiratee coalition in their relentless campaign of bombing Yemen, he hasn’t traveled to Qatar

"Undergoing regular medical checkup" whaaaaaat?

Nobody buys such crap. Our beloved president is a healthy man, in one of his many wisdom filled interviews he bluntly told us Eris that HE DOESN'T SUFFER NEITHER FROM HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE NOR FROM DIABETES. It ain't out of the blue..many have followed that interview.

But wait such statement angered some sellout eritreans then.They said how can he say so!!!

They came up with an example: Our president is the father of all eris that's what we think unless he wants to disown us.

They added further....let's forget that he ain't our president for a moment and he is just an ordinary average Eritrean and has 2 kids. One of his kids suffers from high blood pressure and the other from diabetes hence should this father proudly brag that he is healthy unlike his kids? Well the sellouts say he is an Ewala or a thug and cannot be regarded as the father of the nation.

Bonus....

One of our president's zombies today opened a thread titled "happy new year wish of his excellency...."
And added...our president has sent a bissirat message to all eris...that...eritra abafafet rahwa (tranquility" betsiHa" lol...lol..

Is this new? We have been hearing it since 1995 but no change on ground. :twisted:

Poveretta Eritrea
