Eritrea’s Political future – Africa Today – PressTV

Eritrean news: It’s one of Africa’s youngest and most bullish countries, a nation that once refused all aid, saying it made people lazy and dependent.

But Eritrea, which celebrates its 20th birthday this week, is at a crossroads. At home it’s ruled with an iron fist by Isaias Afewerki the man who led them to independence, and who claims his country is united behind him.

But abroad Eritrea is condemned by groups like Human Rights Watch which alleges it has 10,000 political prisoners, and by a large vocal diaspora which accuses Afewerki of widespread repression.
