Radio Erena: 10 October, 2014
A former Eritrean Ambassador to the European Union – Mr. Anderberhan Weldegiorgis, in an interview he gave to Erena Radio, pointed out the Eritrean people’s struggle for independence and liberation has been kidnapped by few in the current repressive regime in the country and subjected the people to a 23-year-repression and poverty.
Ambassador Andeberhan has recently written a book in English entitled ‘Eritrea at a Crossroads’. The 690-paged-book entails the successes-and-betrayals-based- history of the Eritrean people’s current situations and underlines
that the people has sufficient resources and optimism to replace the current repressive rule by fighting for their rights to reclaim their country and rebuild one that is ruled by law.
Ambassador Andeberhan, a former EPLF [Eritrean People’s Liberation Front] combatant, who had held various positions in the Free Eritrea – in the Eritrean government – first as President of Asmara University, then administrator of the National Bank, and finally, as a diplomat in various European countries before he dissociated himself from the government in 2006. He now lives in Europe and is a member of the Eritrean Forum for National Dialogue – an Eritrean opposition movement.
