Indigenisation“, as we understand it, is a “process“, mainly economic one, launched by some African statesmen and governments, specifically led by the government of Simbabwe.
Translating it into simple words, understanding and putting it into practice, “Indiginisation“ is a process of economic development, intended to be congenial to the customo-traditions ,and according to the pace of the different nationalities or indigenous populations, forming an African nation.
As it is known, most African nations are formed by many, ethnically, culturo-linguistically, culturally and, even religiously different populations.
That means that, their development level too, be it political, economic or infrastructural, are equally different and more or less advanced.
Let us take, as an example in point, our Eritrean nation.
Generally speaking and, traditionally, Eritrea homes, eight, (8), major nationalities or ethnic-groups and various other folk-groups.
All these Eritrean ethnic and folk-groups have either reached some level of economic development or else, are in the process of somehow, up-grading their own standard of living.
This is what it is said be taking place, in Eritrea, since the beginning of the rule of the Popular Front for Democracy and Justice, (PFDJ).
Starting in the 1990s, the PFDJ’s regime, faithful to its socio-political principle of, “Nhnan-Elamanan“,(We and Our Aims/Objetives), has been trying to formulate and implement a single socio-political principle/system, to which all Eritrean-ethnic and folk-groups are to adhere to, with the aim of creating a single and an artificial Eritrean nation and society.
In other words, the PFDJ regime’s new socio-political and economic system is nothing else, than introducing a system, exclusively, reflecting the traditional and culturo-linguistic heritage of the Eritrean-Tigrians, retained to be advanced enough, to be the model of the Eritrean national, social and economic development, to which, all other Eritrean nationalities are required, expected and, even forced into accepting and adapting themselves to, dropping all their own respective century-old customs-traditional heritages.
This, to our view, is diametrically contrary to what “Indigenisation“ policy stands for, and is trying to promote in Africa and in many African nations.
Comparing therefore, the PFDJ regime’s present socio-political and economic system in Eritrea, with that being promoted in some African nations, it is unquestionable to state that it is the worse system, befallen the Eritrean people.
The area, which, such PFDJ regime’s socio-political and ecomomic system is damaging most, is the land policy.
Leaving aside, what kinds of damages, the PFDJ regime’s land policy is bringing, in the traditional land inheritance, ownership and administratioin systems of the various Eritrean nationalities, in the Kunama land and among the Kunama population, the regime’s land policy, has very greatly damaged the Kunama people and the Kunama land itself.
The initial act of the regime, to nationalise the Kunama land was already, the worst catastrophie that could have befallen the Kunama people.
For centuries, the Kunama people had been living, exclusively, from the products of their own native and ancestral land.
The PFDJ regime, since the beginning of its rule, has been aiming to turning the Kunama native land, not only, into the “bread-basket of Eritrea“, as it came to be defined and known later, but also, the main land of the major economic profits, of the regime and of its support-bases, formed, predominantly, by the Eritrean-Tigrian ethnic components.
It is said that, presently, the settlement of the Eritrean-Tigrian populations in the Kunama native land, has already outnumbered, the native Kunama populations, especially in towns and major-centres, of almost, one-to-ten, (1-10).
It seems as though, for the former EPLF and present PFDJ’s regime, the conquest of the Kunama native land had been one of their major aims, during and after the Eritrean independent struggle.
The very first act of the regime, to donate, its demobilised freedom-fighters, big chunks of the Kunama native land was already a second major catastrophie, befallen the Kunama land and the Kunama people. To these, numberless other Eritrean-Tigrian populations, from their highland Eritrean regions, and those Eritrean-Tigrian refugees, returning home, settled and, were forced to settle in the Kunama land.
Other Eritrean-Tigrian populations followed, were those from the Badumma-Plains, after the Eritrean-Ethiopian 1998-2000 war, which were also settled in the Kunama native land, very inappropriately defining them as “Internally Displaced People, (IDP.)“.
In other words, the Kunama native land has, presently, being turned into a second homeland of the Eritrean-Tigrian populations.
Nowadays, many fellow-Eritreans are wondering why, the Kunama populations, for the first time in their long history, are fleeing and abandoning their native and ancestral land.
The reason is very simple: for centuries and, for the Kunama people, their native land was the only provider of their sustenance and therefore, once that provider is taken away from them, they have no other choice, but flee from there to other countries, and take refuge.
It is to remember however that, the PFDJ’s regime and its land policy are not to exist endlessly, and they will come to end, one day, and therefore, whenever, they come to an end, if not all, but at least a great majority of those Kunama populations will be returning home, from all over the world, and reclaiming the rights of possession of their own native and ancestral land.
Then, only God knows what the consequences of those times and events will be.
From these pages, however, we are informing and, even, warning those Eritrean-Tigrians and other non-Kunama populations, who have already bought and sold, and are presently, buying, selling and trading with the Kunama land, and are to do the same, in the future, although it has been repeatedly written and repeatedly announced that, traditionally, the Kunama land is neither bought nor sold, but simply inherited, occupied and administered, even by the Kunama people themselves.
Regarding the land, his is a Kunama tradition, especially among the Kunama rural population and, it is strictly observed.
Other nationalities should be well aware, that the entire Kunama land is the property, (Risti), of the Kunama people and therefore, one day, they will be demanding the return of those territorial rights, in its due time.
The territorial rights of the indigenous people , is clearly contemplated, declared and formulated in the Charters of the United Nations; and the Kunama are the indigenous people’s of Eritrea, and those Charters of the United Nations do apply for the Kunama people too.
The following is how the United Nations declared and formulated those territorial rights of the indigenous people’s:
In those States in which ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities exist, persons belonging to such minorities shall not be denied the right, in community with the other members of their group, to enjoy their own culture, to profess and practice their own religion , or to use their own language“.
(Article-27. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights 1966).; and: 
1).- “Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources, which they
have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired.
2).- Indigenous people’s have the right to, own , use, develop and control the lands,
territories and resources, that they possess by reason of traditional ownership or
other traditional occupation or use, as well as those which they have otherwise acquired.
3).- States shall give legal recognition and protection to these lands, territories and
resources. Such recognition shall be conducted with due respect to the customs,
traditions and land tenure systems of the indigenous people’s concerned“.
(United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Adopted by General Assembly resolution 295 on 13 September 2007). 
Very recent news, reaching from inside the Kunama land, report that, the PFDJ’regime’s local authorities in the Kunama land, are again, and for an uncountable times, announcing and inviting all that, chunks of the Kunama land will be put on sale, and, bidding that, anybody interested, presented him/herself, with the required sum of money.
For the PDFJ’s regime and for its local authorities, as long as the money is sufficient, neither the traditions of the Kunama people nor the Declations of the United Nations, have any validity.
In the final analysis, the PFDJ‘s regime, its local authorities and all those buyers, sellers and traders, with the Kunama people’s land, in the Kunama land, are accused and will be accused of trasgressing and violating three kinds of the territorial rights of the Kunama people:
1).- the Traditional Inheritance, Occupation and Administration Systems, of the native
and ancestral land of the Kunama, as the indigenous people of Eritrea;
2).- The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; and finally,
3).- The Indigenisation Land Policy, introduced and launched by the African Statesmen and their Governments
