OEA Statement

When did Kenya Lose Its Independent Foreign Policy?

What is wrong with Kenya? When did it lose its ability to formulate an independent regional policy? The Kenyan people have always resisted foreign domination, whether it came from across the seas or across the border in the rough neighborhood they live. In the crisis-ridden Horn of Africa, the Kenyans have managed to successfully resist hegemonic designs of the neighborhood’s Western- enabled aggressively expansionist bully, Ethiopia.

Dear Mr. President

Royce's ill-advised campaign against a young African nation continues

Eritrea: 20 years of Progress towards Food Security and Self-Reliance

Today, mass food production and food banking is essential to the economic and political sovereignty of a nation. Globally, Food Security is a fundamental objective of populations and governments. Food is vital to all sectors of the people that make up a nation, starting from the smallest child to the most productive adult; it is essential to the growth, prosperity and stability of a country. In Eritrea food security has taken greater precedence as development policy in order to eradicate poverty and to achieve sustainable economic development.

Eritrea: The Land of Determination, Perseverance, and Sacrifice

According to the predictions of the so-called western political observers, analysts, and thinkers, Eritrea was not supposed to be independent. Nevertheless, against all odds, and in spite of myriads of hardships, Eritrea, thanks to its determination, perseverance and sacrifice became independent on 24 May 1991. In May of 1993, after its successful referendum (where 99.8% of its people voted for independence) Eritrea took its previously denied place in the assembly of nations. Grudgingly, some nations accepted the fait a compli of Eritrean independence!

After being politically, economically, and socially oppressed and subjugated for centuries by the Turks, Egyptian, Italians, British, and the Ethiopians, the people of Eritrea, in September 1st 1961, started an armed struggle to liberate their country. They wanted to be the champions of their own future and destiny. The armed struggle continued until 1991. Thirty years of tenacity, dedication, and commitment paid off and Eritrea was liberated.

During the 30 years of armed struggle for independence, Eritreans showed three pillars of steadfastness. Three exemplary qualities: determination to be free, perseverance to continue until the finishing line, and the commitment to pay the ultimate sacrifice to be free and independent.


“Needless to say we greatly regret that we could not take our work through to its full conclusion, but at least we leave you with a line that is operable. It is up to you to work out how to implement it.” —EEBC 25th report, September 28, 2007
