[Shabait] In 1994, the center of gravity of Eritrea was shifted from Nakfa during the struggle to Sawa after independence. Why? Simply, to continue the already started nation-building process! To make the future better than the present! What else? In order to ensure the security and stability of the nation. Ultimately, the list of possible answers comes thick and fast. Anyway, my principal objective here is to indicate the changing shift of “centers” and the regularities of events and meanings attached to them.
