Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki missing
has been seen in public, fueling speculations once again that he is either terribly sick or incapacitated. Eritrean officials are not willing to confirm or deny the reports. In a photo that was released several months ago, Isaias looked sick and frail. Ethiopian Review sources have reported previously that Isaias Afwerki has told close confidants he will step down in 2014. His son, Abraham (shown in the photo below), is said to be among the likely successors.
