1) It is natural for any government to oppose another government,but it is rare when a government of a country becomes the enemy of a government and its population. The Weyanes are the enemies of the Eritrean people.This is an established fact.Before you became the leader of the Eritrean National Alliance, you used to downgrade and label the organisation as Weyane- stooges and traitors. Soon after that, you associated yourself with the Weyanes. Using your own definition,is it right to refer to you as a Traitor, regardless of the time and space as to when you began working with them closely? If not,why would you be immune from such labeling?
2) At one point in time, you claimed to have 700,000 followers.That would make something like 90% of the diaspora Eritreans.I would like to know where they are hiding.?If you were running for the office of the president, what
would you tell ( reasons for working with those who robbed them) the 70,000+ Eritreans who lost all their wealth before being deported to get their vote?
I never accused the ENA of being traitors: please go back to the first TV interview I registered with Kiros in Stockholm. I defended Abdella Idris and the ENA; check also my speech at the kessel festival in 2001. The opposition organizations influence the Eritrean refugees in the Sudan as well as the Diaspora. The ENA has registered its views and lodged its complaints to the Ethiopian authorities on behalf of Eritreans who lost their livelihood.
May I add that I tend to agree with the remarks of Kahsay Ghidey.
