As June and July are notoriously known for radical events in history, June of the current year has witnessed a sudden declaration by three Gulf countries, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, supported by Egypt and blessed by their new sponsor (President Donald Trump),  severing their diplomatic relations with their neighbour Qatar; the diplomatic rupture immediately turning into a full-fledged blockade imposed on  Qatar, in a way similar to the one on Gaza Strip (by Israel and Egypt); something unprecedented in depth and breadth in inter-Arab relations.

In education, we use the adjectives “TIMED” and “UNTIMED” in relation to assignments and exams we give to students as traditional tools to assess learning. As no one needs to be an educator in order to know these terms, there is no need to explain what they mean. Nonetheless, for the Eritrean opposition that lives in an idealistic world, the duty of bringing change is an “UNTIMED” assignment or open until the doomsday.

Our beloved uncle Nurhussien Mohammed Hagos Abera had passed away this morning, June 6th of 2017, after a prolonged illness. He will be buried tomorrow, June 8th, in Maryland (Washington DC area).

Mr. Nurhussein Abera graduated with a degree in law from the University of Cairo in 1953, which led him to become a prominent intellectual of his day. The presence, the guidance and the inspirations of my dearest uncle will be remembered by me now and forever.


He was one of Asmarino Jeberti’s and among few students who graduated in Law School from University of Cairo in 1953. He and his late brother, Dr. Yassin Mohammed Hagos Abera, have acquired remarkable reputations as scholars.


He and Dr. Yassin had a plan to change the education system for young Eritreans  and provide them a high quality education. But, due to the political situation at the time, the Haile Sellasie Regime had deprived Eritreans of the opportunity to  pursue quality education.


Nurhussien Aberra was known to encourage young Eritrean Muslims to pursue their education. When the Eritrean politics became worse and worse, he had migrated to USA.
