Q & A with Eritrean scholar Nunu Kidane

on May 6, 2010

What does the word “independence” mean for Eritrea, one of the world’s youngest nations? Eritrea has been free from colonial rule for twenty years. But did independence make Eritreans free? Mario Furloni speaks with Nunu Kidane, an Eritrean scholar and director of the Priority Africa Network, in the conclusion of his three-part audio series on Bay Area Eritreans for Oakland North Radio.

    I think it was a poor choice to choose Nunu for the discussion unless there was a counter balance to the perspective.

    I suppose in short it was a poor ending to an interesting series. Perhaps you could have a *special* fourth installment.

    Your choice of Nunu for the interview was the best choice to get informed about the current situation on Eritrea. Million bravo nunu, bravo, well said, voice of those Eritreans under consistent suppression on the crazy Issayas Afewerki
