The Plastic Rope: Memories Of A Foot Soldier

Halewa Sewra in the 1970s in picture.

Weldekel Haile was educated in Syria and was the first Jebha to flee, According the account of Tesfamariam Assefaw Woldenkel, Haile did not like Issayas [ Kidana Aida 2004 ]. During the Menka movement in 1973 Woldenkel Haile who was head of the security department said that the Menka ringleaders prisoners did not commit any crime except breaking military discipline rules. He made clear his stand which was completely different from Issayas . Because of this Issayas was not happy and Woldenkel Haile was sent to the Hailitat (front line sometime in 1974 [Afewerki, Tewdros, 2003)[[Interview with Tesfay Temnewo [Part 23]] .. He was the most distinguished military leader next to Ibrhim Afa and had led the Eritrea People’s Liberation Army to victory at the strategic town of Segeneti in 1977 but was not a member of the central comittee in 1977. He was killed shortly after the victory by an unidentified gunman at Segeneti, his birth place. When this occurred there was a radio message in this code " Itia Abai Lham Ab Mereta Wediqa", meaning that the great leader rest on his land".This is also confirmed from other source መደባትና፡ ነቲ ኪንዮ ጸሊም ራዕዲ ዘሎ ደበና፡ ምቕንጣጥ ኢዩ!!! - 4ይ ክፋ 2008 "መልእኽቲ ሚስጢር (ኮድ) ኦፕረይትተር ንኩነታት መቕተልቲ ወልደንኪኤል ሃይለ ኣብ ኩናት ምሕራር ሰገነይቲ ንኣብነት፡ “እታ ላም ኣብ ዓደ ኣቦኣ ተሓሪዳ” ኢዩ ዝብል ነይሩ። Read more
Mehari Gheberemichael: A relatively young fellow and not a veteran by comparison. He joined the front in 1974.  He discovered that there was a secret party within the EPLF when he stumbled upon a document in a martyr’s pack (bishiklit). He was dumbfounded by the material and asked a friend who co-incidentally happened to be a party member. The party member told him everything and advised him not to talk to anyone about the issue and endanger his life.  The poor fellow could not safeguard the entire secret. He could have, like the story in the Greek legend, buried th never thought of digging a hole on the ground and buried the secret.  He didn’t: the burden was too much, and he committed suicide. This was the explanation I got from a friend who was in Filfil Selemuna at that time. [Source EPLF's History of Mysterious Deaths By Lt. Kidane - Mar 15, 2009 read more ]
Arefaine Tesfahgabr: A youngster of the first Fitewrari generation, he served in Fah, the then capital of Isaias Afwerki, for about three years after which he was transferred as a radio communication officer in Filfil Selemuna under Asmerom Gherezghiher (Hawi Bichir), who is now a Major General. This guy was a sort of a mathematician that he could have even solved the enigma code used by the Nazis in World War II. As an operator he decoded all standard messages and was very smart in decoding enemy messages. By the time he was serving with Asmerom he had already known that there was a secret party and Asmerom was the regional chief. He received a coded message from Asmerom to be sent to Isayas. The message when decoded read: “It is good that we put the tin into the barrel.” The reply from Isayas was, “The tin takes a lot of water, and therefore we should wait until we talk about it.”  Arefaine was smart and solved it in no time: it concerned the entry of Estifanos Bruno to the secret party. Isaias was saying: Bruno drinks a lot and it is not advisable that he join the party now. In the long run, Arefaine could no longer hold the secret and confided to a friend the existence of the secret party. His friend was much worse and started hallucinating during his sleep and became sort of a lunatic. Finally he started blurting out the secrets told to him by Arefaine. After a few days Arefaine committed suicide; the guy who was hallucinating was later transferred to Sahel and no one ever heard about him. [Source EPLF's History of Mysterious Deaths By Lt.

Wedi Lbey: a veteran fighter and undercover agent in Asmara since the early days of Thisha. After he joined the front, he became a member of the Enda Seban Klten (Brigade Seventy Two.) I had the chance to work with him for a brief period in 1977.  He was a short and sturdy guy who chain smoked. He was always serious and talked to the point. I was not lucky and did not stay with him for a long time. An acquaintance told me that he committed suicide. I could never swallow the news I heard and I nagged my friend where he heard the story. My comrade was scared to death and requested me profusely to cool down for if I raised the matter with other people I could be a target myself. It was not puzzle anymore, at least for me.

Ash’Al: A hugely built veteran fighter of the seventies. I only met him once. He served under Haile Jebha in the Halewa Sewra for many years and he witnessed the death of the revolutionaries of 1973 that were later liquidated after they were branded as counter revolutionaries by Isaias and his stooges. I am not sure about the exact date but the people who told me claimed that he died after his boss Haile Jebha was liquidated as Yemin or rightist with his colleagues. In fact Ash’Al is a person of the highest profile in the annals of EPLF history of suicide. [Source EPLF's History of Mysterious Deaths By Lt. Kidane - Mar 15, 2009 read more]
Doctor Mekonnen Haile: Another medical doctor who joined the front in 1976. He was assigned in the department of health and served diligently until his mysterious disappearance. There was an ongoing internal struggle within the department between Isaias elements and those who opposed him. I never knew what Dr. Mekonnen’s stand was. But one thing I know for sure. Being an old time friend of John and Mussie Tesfamichael, he could never be a pawn of Isaias. The cause of his death was disseminated, of course through 03, as suicide. It was a colleague who came from the East, (Mibraq) meaning Foro who informed me. According to his version, “Dr. Mekonnen was a charismatic comrade and we loved him very much. Suddenly, we did not see him for more than two weeks and we began to ask. We could not say he went to Sahel because we did not see him in the Sambuq (boat). When questions about his whereabouts became rampant, the hafash was told by the party apparatchiks (informally of course) that he committed suicide. The person I know he is, I never accept the story of his suicide. [Source EPLF's History of Mysterious Deaths By Lt. Kidane - Mar 15, 2009 read more]

Isayas Teweldebrhan was a brilliant military strategist and tactician. It is a fact that there were many Valiant military leaders in EPLF. The most noted ones who come as the 1st Group are Woldenkiel Haile, Mesfun Hagos, Ibrahim Afa, Petros Solomon, General Ogbe Abraha. The 2nd group consists of Isayas Flansa, Ali Ibrahm, Salih Huruy, Adhanom Gberemariam, The Third Group consist of major general Fillipos Woldehans, Brigadier general Andemariam Wuchu, Abdu Remech etc. The difference With wedi flansa is he can plan a battle strategy alone and implement it whereas others wait for the plan to be sent to them.  [comment   by Belay Tewlede on December 25, 2013 at 3:57 pm said:

Ibrahim Afa: It was just after the Bahre Neghash offensive. The enemy had already been defeated in the third front of Halhal and, as a result, changed tactic and tried to penetrate EPLF lines through the Northern Sahel front which it knew were devoid of EPLF troops. In fact, many people claim that, at the time, Ibrahim Afa was a lame duck in Aragh, posted as head of the military training department, instead of directing the war. Some people also claim he also opposed on how the war was being conducted.  He had a very close friendship with Mesfun Hagos and the late Weldenkiel Haile. Ibrahim Afa is then said to have died when enemy troops ambushed him and Shambel Mebrahtom while they were sleeping in their bunker.Source EPLF's History of Mysterious Deaths By Lt.

Mesfin Hagos was in the leadership with Issayas from 1970-1987 then as a member of the CC from  1987-1994, and Abedella Adem was a member of the EPLF Central Committee in the 1977 to 1994, neither has ever acknowledged their crimes or collaborations with Issayas. What are their motivation in accusing Issayas for crimes committed after 2001 while they keep silent about those which were committed by the EPLF between 1970-1994 and then by the PFDJ from 1994-2001? [ Alem Tesfay (2003) [ listed some names of victim of the 1970s and 1980s]

During the liberation struggle many innocent liberation fighters and civilians became victims of the former revolutionary leaders who are currently serving in the Eritrean government or in the Opposition. The opposition leaders are not innocent of crime. They like the PFDJ leaders whom they are accusing of committing crimes against the Eritrean people since 1991 are also guilty.
