Ali Abdu, Former Eritrea’s Minister of Information
The girls who were being conscripted had a more humiliating fate: they become the
maids, and sometimes the concubines, of the corrupt generals. As the government
continued to press on with its endless conscription program, the Eritrean youth began
to pour out of the country by the thousands into Ethiopia, Sudan and Yemen.

Ali Abdu, Former Eritrea’s Minister of Information. :shock: :shock:
In 2010, when I wanted to show the world that the Eritrean President was unstable, I
arranged an interview of him with Al Jazeera’s English program. He was, as I
expected, unhinged and crazy-sounding: he was very drunk. Awate.com called the
interview “President Gone Wild” and featured it prominently on its website. The
President directly told me to contact Al Jazeera and remove the interview and the
label “President Gone Wild” but I told him that not only did the Ministry of
Information have no control over Al Jazeer and awate.com, but that it was illegal to
block or jam the websites.

The Eritrean government has been described as an “organised mob” and, in many
ways, it is. But it is not the whole government. The government has technocrats and
civil servants who are trying their best to serve their people.

Ali Abdu, Former Eritrea’s Minister of Information.

In 2009, the Commercial Attaché in China handed substantial proof of corruption
within the Eritrean government to the Eritrean Ambassador in Dubai (Consul General
Mr John) and asked him to bring the evidence to me. The evidence was an invoice.
The Eritrean government had purchased from China 10 million exercise books,
stationary and material for the Ministry of Education. The Attaché had discovered that
they had cost 5 million dollars, however the invoice amounted to 10 million dollars.

Ali Abdu, Former Eritrea’s Minister of Information

So the military men began to approach me. The general situation in Eritrea had been
getting darker and darker. The General Secretary of the PFDJ (ruling party)
approached me and asked me to do something to help the situation. This is the man
who is supposed to be the second in charge to the President and he literally cried and
asked me what were we going to do. It wasn’t just the issue of conscription and the
arming of civilians, but Eritrea has no electricity, no drinking water, no food –
everything is controlled by the President. His philosophy was clear that “if people are
hungry, the dare not think about politics.” It has become more and more totalitarian
and the situation has become totally dire. Thousands are fleeing our country. The
people approached me because they thought I would be the next President.

Then the Defence Minister approached me and insisted on seeing me urgently. We
agreed to meet in a safe place. We met for about three hours and he informed me that
there had been a lot of chatter recently as to why all these military officials – who had
previously rarely visited my office – were now frequenting my office. Without giving
me any specific information, he told me that the President does all his “dirty work”
while travelling outside of the country – and that all the high-profile executions and
arrests usually occur when the President is away. This is so he can order such arrests
and executions to be done, but then turn around and act “surprised” and “shocked”
that it has happened. The Defence Minister told me that the President would be
travelling outside the country on the 8th of October 2012, and that I should make plans
to get out as well – he believed that it would be my turn to be arrested or executed.

I'm so glad he chose the nickname, "From the Belly of the Beast" instead of Abdissa, Feyiessa, or Ejerssa :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

On the other hand, within the Eritrean government was a corrupt core of military men
and their outlaw facilitators who reported directly to the President. These people
benefited from the exile of Eritreans. They were involved in the lucrative business of
human smuggling and contraband trade. They thus turned a blind-eye to the destitute
living conditions of the people as they boozed, gambled, and created a new class of
the super rich.

There was one more thing that I consider the straw that broke the camel’s back. For
me, this was the government’s recent decision in 2012 to arm everybody including
elderly men and women. While some of us were wondering when the young Eritreans
would be demobilized – this had been what we were all expecting – in April 2012, the
President gave an order that all Eritreans (including the men and women up to the age
of 75) should be armed. It must be a decision in preparation for a war. The President
was trying to create his own Defence Force that was under his direct control. The
Defence Ministry was completely paralysed and separated from the project. The
Minister of Defence complained about the creation of the President’s Defence Force
directly by coming to my office. Only one Brigadier General named Tecle Manjus –
who is on the United Nations Security Council Human Trafficking list - assigned to
the new defence force – he is extremely corrupt, and is involved in smuggling and
trafficking.

QB,

You interrupted me in my Saturday billiards game and it seems I am on the brink of losing. The frash adashs became invincible.

Back to the subject,

Man! We tackled this issue few years ago. Ali abdu to date has never ever gave any testimony as to why he defected and sought asylum in australia. Believe me on this because I know him personally.

All the bla..bla..which you quoted were the creation of a well orchestrated and programmed weyanne team aimed to blackmail wedi medhin berad by wickedly implying his person while he was one of issu's higher official.

Don't fall in it unless you are an undercover weyanne.

Good for Ali Abdu for telling what he knows. Just that he spearheaded the arrest of these journalists though.
