  • In unprecedented move #Ethiopia is prepared to demand #Isaias Afeworki to leave #Eritrea.

    With patience running thin the Ethiopian government is almost at a decision point to demand the removal of Isaias Afeworki from power. Sources familiar with the issue told Aigaforum the government  has floated the idea to key western nations as a comprehensive plan for the horn of africa region. The Ethiopian government has informed many western nations that if Isaias Afewroki is not removed from power there will be war and Ethiopia will defend vigorously.

    The issue of Isaias Afewroki's removal from power gained momentum over the last few weeks with Al- Shabaab deadly attempt to overrun Ethiopia's AMSOM military camp in Somalia. However, our sources told us the recent clash between Eritrea and Ethiopia  in Tserona Northern Tigrai region may have given the proposal more ammunition. 

    It is unclear if western nations will support the idea but the EPRDF government is not new to such diplomatic undertaking. The once strong military man Col Mengstu Hailemariam was removed from power  and sent to Zimbabwe  when the then rebel EPRDF fighters  encircled Addis Ababa. The late PM Meles Zenawi who was chairman of the EPRDF negotiated Mengsitu departure in London. Our sources told us it is highly possible the American and British  government will support the plan to avoid bloodshed. The sooner Isaias Afeworki packs and leaves Eritrea the less casualty on the Eritrean people.

     If war breaks out, Ethiopia is on the record,  that it will make sure this will be the last war. Our sources told us this means the war will be a war of attrition and it is such scenario Ethiopia is trying to avoid and convince key western nations to go along with the plan. Recently President Abay Woldu from Tigrai the region that is mostly affected by the no war no peace policy of the Ethiopian government  said to residents of Adwa town, that Ethiopia is planning to bring to an end the conflict with Eritrea  soon. He said either peacefully or otherwise this conflict will come to an end sooner than many think. 

     It is not clear if Isaias Afeworki will accept such demand but our sources told us even if he does not accept such demand it will have  a huge impact on the Eritreans and its defense forces.  Many in the government of Ethiopia are convinced the Eritrean army may rebel against Isaias Afeworki and if they are convinced about Ethiopia's disinterest of overrunning Eritrea then they may reform and establish a government of their own that is willing to live in peace with its neighbors.

  • National poll: #Trump nearly even with #Clinton

    Donald Trump has nearly pulled even with Hillary Clinton, according to the results of the NBC News/SurveyMonkey weekly tracking poll released Tuesday.

    While Clinton is looking to wrap up the Democratic nomination with a strong performance in the final group of states on June 7, her advantage in a hypothetical matchup against the Republican nominee has dwindled by the week. Over the last seven days, Clinton led Trump 47 percent to 45 percent, with the Manhattan businessman drawing 2 points closer since the last weekly survey.

    Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders maintained a 12-point lead over Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head general election contest, 52 percent to 40 percent.

    The poll was conducted May 23-29, surveying 12,969 registered voters online with a margin of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points.
