Eritrean president for life isayass afeworki - Tigrai Online The child killer president-for-life of Eritrean regime is still missing. The last time he was seen on public was a month ago on March 26, 2012. He appeared on Eritrean national TV to respond to the Ethiopian military action on terrorist training centers inside his country. Since that interview he has virtually disappeared from the Eritrean media where he use to monopolize the state media.

In the last weeks there have been many reports that he is seriously ill or dead. The Eritrean ministry information has issued statements accusing the American spy agency CIA manufacturing the rumor about his ailment or passing away.  Eritrean President Isaias Afeworki is at the “peak of his health” the secretive Red Sea state said last Monday but despite the rumors burning like wild fire in the international media he didn’t appear on TV to prove he is alive or not gravely ill.

Opposition websites have claimed the president is suffering from a serious liver illness and has been treated in Qatar.

Different high ranking Eritrean officials have given interviews regarding his health saying he is “fit as a fiddle”.

The question begging to be answered is if he is not alive why are they hiding it? Well there are many reasons for Eritrea not disclose the information. They might be getting ready for replacement, they are trying to avoid panic on the public, they might be afraid their enemies would take advantage of his death or he is just seriously sick. God knows what happen to him, but the Ethiopian government and army should be ready for any eventualities.

Horn of Africa analysts are worried the tiny red sea nation is ethnically and religiously divided and if the president who ruled it since its independence dies it’s fate would be uncertain. Eritrea is on a war footing with it’s much larger neighbor Ethiopia.
