Eritrea and Ethiopia were in war for more than thirty years; and ended up with emergence of Eritrea as independent and sovereign state in 1993. The long bitter war destabilized the Horn of Africa; the peoples of Eritrea and Ethiopia have not yet removed their scars. But, they are still found in undefined shadows of no peace and no war. It is sad to see tax payers money going to disgraceful investment of war. "The more you spend on peace, the less you spend on war." When do our leaders take a lesson from Kenyan proverb?
