"At the moment, the Opposition is just like a ghost...."

The State of Eritrea’s Opposition
Comments by Dr. Sarah Ogbai October 7, 2015 10:56 am

At the moment, the Opposition is just like a ghost. We all talk about lack of unity but we fail to identify unity between this and that group. It’s embarrassing to talk about Opposition without a leader. So far no one from the Opposition has stood up to say, “I will lead my people to change and democracy. I will do everything in my power, including sacrificing my life for my people and my country.”

The grassroots in the Opposition are confused and weakened by the existence of so many the so-called parties and political groups. Our youth are disheartened and discouraged. We have failed them in a major way. PFDJ has pulled out the plugs of rigor and vigor, courage and conscience from our youth and our people, feeding/counting on this confusion and weakness.

A migrant is examined by a doctor after disembarking from British vessel HMS Enterprise in Sicilly. Italian Coastguards said 1,830 migrants were rescued from the Mediterranean  in a 24-hour periodBy SIMON TOMLINSON FOR MAILONLINE

More than 400,000 asylum seekers who have entered the EU in the first six months of this year are expected to have their claims rejected. 
The document, seen by Mail Online, says: 'The EU and its Member States must do more in terms of return. Increased return rates should act as a deterrent to irregular migration.' EU home office ministers, including Theresa May, will discuss the draft plans at a summit in Luxembourg this week. Despite Britain not being part of the Schengen zone and therefore not bound by the plan, the British Home Secretary is expected to support the proposals if they lead to the Calais migrant camps being cleared, it was reported by The Times. Under the 'action plan on return' the EU's border agency Frontex will set up a new unit to assist with deportations.

Tewekel concedes that sanctions hurt the Eritrean people

Taha Tewekel, self-claimed Horn Africa specialist from the failed Addis- based Eritrean opposition, confirms that on the account of Eritrean government's support of Alshabab, the Eritrean people became the victims of the sanctions imposed on the Eritrean regime. Asked about the recent threats by the Ethiopian government, he goes to length into listing of justifiable reasons why Ethiopia would attack. With a renegade tone, he states that Ethiopia would only launch limited raids and although Eritrea is too weak to respond, it would enrage the Eritrean people thus creating support for the regime.  He also stated that the Eritrean opposition is failure and dysfunctional.

ICC "has lost its direction".

Ruling party wants S.Africa to pull out of ICC

Johannesburg (AFP) - South Africa's ruling party said on Sunday it wanted the country to withdraw from the International Criminal Court, saying the court has lost direction and no longer fulfilled its mandate.


The decision comes after a spat with The Hague-based court over South Africa's failure to arrest Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir when he arrived in the country in June to attend an African Union summit.

"The National General Council has just resolved that South Africa should withdraw from the international court. However, only after we have followed certain processes," said Obed Bapela, who heads the ANC party's international relations commission.

The resolution came out of an ANC policy meeting where leaders are reviewing the party's policies ahead of the country's municipal elections in 2016.

The ANC said it still believed in the founding principles of the ICC, such as prevention of genocide and stopping the violations of human rights, and that such principles led the country to become a signatory to the Rome Statute that governs the court.

But Bapela said that the ICC "has lost its direction".   Read More
