Kudos to EPRDF for concluding their marathon meeting without a significant leak! This could be a sign the deep tehadeso is working!

EPRDF Council meeting enters 3rd day Addis Ababa, March 22, 2018 (FBC) - The meeting of the Council of the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) has entered its third day on Thursday. During its meeting, the Council will review in detail reports of the Executive Committee, performances of each national party towards the implementation of the deep renewal program and deliberate on other useful documents. Given the hype color revolution proponents have given to the election of the next PM of Ethiopia, one must be very careful not to misinform or short-circuit the process by announcing the next PM before EPRDF announce its choice!

The Eritrea-Sudan border standoff: did Isaias whisper treason? In January this year Sudanese troops were sent to man the country’s border with Eritrea.The border was sealed: trade between the neighboring states ceased.This has caused real hardship, particularly in Eritrea...During General Salih's visit to Asmara, President Isaias Afwerki suggested that the time was ripe for the General to replace President Omar al Bashir as Sudanese head of state.
It is open secret Isaias has been dreaming to be the kingmaker in the horn region for a while! He has no respect for constitutional order in any country since he has been running Eritrea without a constitution! Recently, he was quoted to have said "game is over" when it comes to Ethiopia implying EPRDF is done and one of his running dogs from the Ethiopian opposition will take power! Now it makes sense why he said so, apparently, he thinks the time is up for Beshir of Sudan too!Perfect daydream for him to have both Sudan and Ethiopia to be under his yoke! PM Meles though we admire you very much we think you were wrong to save Isaias last time!
