By Popular Demand: Extended Version of Elias Kifle Interview at Civility Room - on ESAT and G7

July 13. 2015

Comment from Reader: The more I hear Elias Kifle the more I feel sorry for Wedi Afom! How could he wine and dine with such folks year after year only to be embarrassed by them once they leave Asmara? Was it not enough to learn from Meskerem and Muse before? Is it not enough to learn from Elias and Demsse? I am sure, Berhanu Nega and his ESAT officers will follow soon according to Elias but when will Isaias Afeworki learn? [Fitsum H. July 14,2015]

The never dull Diaspora Extremists!

Elias Kifle and Demese Belete two key former members of the Diaspora extremist camp were guest at civility online discussion forum. The two went beyond their comfort zone to criticize Shaibya and G7. The two shared many jaw dropping news about their engagement with the one man regime in Eritrea as well as about the many alphabet soup of Ethiopian opposition forces lined up in Eritrea. For the record the two did not believe G7 or Arbegnoch were capable to wage a battle let alone a six day war. Elias said though he was groomed and recruited to be Shaibya messenger he declined once he realized Shaibya sinister plot for Ethiopia. Elias said ESAT is assuming the role he was supposed to play now! If we get hold of the recording we will post it as is.(Aigaforum July 11. 2015)
