Indian Ocean Newsletter: Another False Story In its 16 February Publication (No 1468) this week, the Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION) falsely claims that “talks are underway between Eritrea and Ethiopia to resolve the border dispute”. Indian Ocean Newsletter: Another False Story In its 16 February Publication (No 1468) this week, the Indian Ocean Newsletter (ION) falsely claims that “talks are underway between Eritrea and Ethiopia to resolve the border dispute”.  The Newsletter goes on to say: “… Official communications between the two countries had already begun in the greatest secrecy and a meeting had been planned between the Eritrean President Issayas Afwerki and the former Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn…who stepped down yesterday”. To imbue credibility to this hoax, “exclusively obtained”, story, ION produces a list of personalities and “accredited figures” who have presumably launched “personal initiatives” towards this end.It is not the first time for the ION to indulge in innuendos, and/or to publish utterly fictitious news and analysis on Eritrea and the region as a whole.   The timing of this particular disinformation however raises questions of ulterior motive.Be that as it may, the MOI advises the ION to give some respect to its readers and desist from disseminating hoax news for trite reasons of sensationalization or other sinister agendas.Ministry of InformationAsmara17 February 2018

Do you believe Issias Afwerki?

  Those who chose to listen to him have to choices… to believe what he says or do not believe what he says. Again not believing isn’t an indication of disagreement necessarily. In the surreal reality of Eritreans these days, it is perfectly possible to feel one thing and say the opposite… ( e.g. you can leave the country crossing a border illegally having paid thousands of dollars for the privilege… seek asylum detailing everything that has happened to you and to your kin and then come back and say you still stand with your ‘government’!)…. But anyway if you choose to not believe what IA says you only need to work out whether to be sensible, courageous or cowardly with your beliefs… if you are sensible you will stay silent for a bit and see who else is agreeing or disagreeing…. If you are courageous you will do something about it and if you are cowardly you will believe one thing and say the opposite (a silly ypfdj t-shirt in a selection of telly tubby colors is optional)….
