(1/10) This is a report card on #Eritrea Prez Isaias Afwerki considered by himself & NNNN as a political architect of the Horn of Africa. From #Somalia, #Sudan, #SouthSudan, #Djibouti, to #Ethiopia, he has wasted #Eritrean treasury grooming satellite orgs. All for nothing.
(2/10) #SouthSudan: The #SPLA had members who were for secession & members for reforming Sudan and remaining part of it. Despite Isaias Afwerki's cries, the secessionist won and they proved it in a referendum where 99% voted for independence. Isaias didn't attend the ceremony.
(3/10) #Darfur Sudan: Although #Eritrea has no border with West Sudan, Isaias inserted himself &, along with #Qatar (now enemy state) conducted a long and useless effort, including hosting armed Darfuri rebels. In the intra #Sudan reconciliation now, he has no role or influence.

This could be huge! Victims have been waiting for justice for widespread atrocities committed in #Darfur for 15+ years. Keen to have more details on plans for #Bashir to at last face the #ICC charges against him. Some further info on case at @hrw: hrw.org/news/2019/05/0…
@hrw I first began working on the campaign to see perpetrators of widespread crimes in #Darfur held to account in 2004 as @HRW continued to document the extreme brutality against civilians: hrw.org/news/2004/09/2…
@hrw It was time when the prospect of the #UNSC coming together to ensure justice for the gravest crimes at the #ICC was more on the table than in recent years. (see: hrw.org/news/2014/05/2…). But given the #US anti-ICC position, it was far from a foregone conclusion.

For everyone in the international community, a quick word picture about what happend in #sudan:
⭕Imagine your contry was ruled by a military man(#Albashir) that came via coup for 30 years.
⭕Drove your economy into the ground and put almost your entire ppl in poverty.
⭕Whilst doing so this ruler violently cracks down on any whiff of opposition
⭕Systematically dismantles your constitution and institutions
⭕Replaces any decent govt figureheads with gutless yes men
⭕Starts a genocide/ethnic cleansing in an entire state of your country #darfur
⭕to carry out said genocide this military man decides to employ a militia(#janjaweed) of Chadian origins(who were originally bandits, and donkey/camel thieves) lead by a nomadic man (#hemidty) and arms them to the teeth and directs them at their target.

#Ethiopia:The fed defense forcea moving into #Jigjiga city, the capital of the Ethiopian #Somali regional state, after attempts to summon the region's Pres., Abdi Illey, to #AddisAbeba failed & reports that he ordered thousands of Liyu Police to move to the city. 📷 @oladmohamed
Update:This came after Abdi sent members of Liyu police to disrupt ongoing meeting by hundreds of Ethio #Somalis in #DireDawa city. As partial result of the threat the city declared a military command post on Thursday. The gathering in Dire Dawa is called to denounce Abdi Illey.
Update: As per a gov source, since Thursday, thousands of members of the Liyu Police were told by Abdi to move into #Jigjiga. He was then asked to come with key members of his cabinet to AA to discuss the ongoing situation. "He declined & the security situation calls for caution"
