Many online published papers suggest that Isaias Afwerki was operating as a CIA agent or Haile Selassie agent or think of it as an Ethiopian agent to dismantle the Eritrean struggle since the early sixties, though, the ex-general Mesfin Hagos believes differently. Mesfin emphasizes that Isaias had fought fiercely without hesitation to liberate Eritrea. However, he said, one thing he had noticed as a mistake was the scheme he utilized to empower himself during all the past years.
Being a spy or an agent against the people you grew up with is unimaginable for an ordinary person; nevertheless, it can happen when it is justified by personal gratification or if there is an external invisible force to offer a service against his will. Ultimately, when the circumstances completely change, that betrayal becomes a nightmare; the justification that was in place would certainly turn into dismay. The same feeling that hunted the Judas of Iscariot for betraying Jesus.
Therefore, there should be a way to escape it. That is the reason why the new justification came in. An integrated and stronger East Africa becomes a motto! This convenient rationale is the only means to fix or recover from previous self-imposed traumas. That is certainly what appears to be Isaias is working on presently, redressing his betrayal wounds, by justifying it to a much better as well as stronger East Africa at the cost of the Eritrean’s struggle for freedom.
Undeniably, the alleged accusations appear to be true that Isaias was a spy and he was overtly establishing himself quite a long time ago. The main reason why he was surrounding himself with people like Yemane Gebreab (president adviser), Yamane Gebremeskel, and Hagos Gebrehiwet (kisha) is self-explaining.
Additionally, urging Eritreans to flee from the country could very well be correlated with or connected to the same agenda. People may think that fleeing from the country is a simple economic issue or an ordinary political problem. On the contrary, it turned out to be this secret agenda that was going on for decades. The young Eritreans were victimized because of this, and still, they do. No schooling, and total control over their thought process; deliberately starved, tortured, and tormented to compel them to run away from their own country. Moreover, there was a secret killing spree and imprisonment of numerous high-ranking politicians and well-informed individuals who demonstrated concern over the issue that is taking place in Eritrea.
Those Eritrean fighters who claimed that the country was liberated in 1991 should have thought well to safeguard it. They failed to realize that they brought a venomous snake (ገበል) along with them. They should have been vigilant to retain the martyrdom’s vision. Nevertheless, right after they arrived at the capital city (Asmara), Isaias utilized the same technique from the old books, get them to scramble to gratify their whims, let them be indulged into grabbing material possessions, etc. On the other hand, he engaged himself on the contrary. Pretentiously denying himself material possessions and simultaneously revealing to the people that he indeed has absolutely nothing, no Possession.
Moreover, the same pretentious act as well employed to chip away at the confidence of the citizens over the other fighters. He used it meticulously to diminish the credibility of other well-known fighters. The people of Asmara used to say, it surely is not him, it is them, the other fighters who are not loyal…… Then, step by step this enabled him to grant himself power over the others. Consequently, he squashed them one after the other with zero resistance.
Isaias is accustomed to performing dramas all the way to realize his long-awaited goal. Yet still, most of the old fighters are in an intense slumber (Sommeil profound) to notice it.
What precisely will be uncovered in the upcoming events is unknown. Nevertheless, good to hang around and wait to discover the next hidden agenda………………………………
