This is to invite participants to ask Mr. Hiruy question pertaining to his tenure as Secretary General of the Eritrean National Alliance.
Since no one has posted a question yet, may I?
This is one of the most important issue that needs to be clarified.
Please tell us how you came to Addis before the ENA meeting in 2002? Were you invited by the Ethiopian government? What was the role of Twekel?
In your interview with Walta you bashed the ENA, yet you suddenly became its Secretary General, which led to the walk out by the ELF-RC on account that you were imposed/installed by the Ethiopian regime. Concerned organizations approached the Ethiopian government and demanded an answer. The Ethiopian government is alleged to have said that they did not actually tell the organizations to elect you but suggested that you would be a better leader..lobbied on your behalf per-se. You are also alleged to have responding in the meet in of the ENA that " they told me/ encouraged me/said to me to lead the ENA".
Invoking the name of martyrs and your promise to tell the truth to the public that you so forcefully express respect, please answer this question: straight:
Did the Ethiopian government in any form or shape, be it through suggestion, lobby, indirect showing preference by giving you the "red carpet" treatment, giving instruction to its "closest allies" or otherwise played a role in your election to the position of the secretary general of the ENA in your first ever attendance of an ENA leadership meeting?
Do you feel now that the same forces that allowed you to become the secretary general are now throwing you out?
