In the course of the interview President Isaias Afwerki was conducting with the national media outlets regarding the objective situation and future prospects, interference signal was effected with a view to blocking the live interview. Moreover, intensive satellite jamming was resorted to in a futile bid to muffle the fourth part of the interview which was conduced yesterday.

This futile jamming attempt through very sophisticated technology prompts a lot of questions as to who is behind it? Why? For what purpose?  From where? How? Since when? On the basis of what legality? and so forth. All these call for numerous answers.

One way or the other, if the intention is at all designed to silence Eritrea’s voice of truth and justice, it is all in vain simply because the attempt is tantamount to trying to block the sun.
