Among the Tigrinya ethnic group, there is another small group of people known as Jeberti. However, they are not considered separately from Tigrinya even by the government. Traditionally, there have been conflicts between the lowland and highland communities in the country. These tensions and conflicts have been characterized by stealing livestock and encroachment of land (Advameg, Inc., 2014). In addition, there is a mutual distrust among the two groups. This has moved even into the government departments.
The Eritreans are divided along religious, ethnic, and social lines. Initially, there were low caste groups. These social classes were found in almost all ethnic groups. In modern society, an elite group is arising (Advameg, Inc., 2014). This is mainly composed of the business people, civil servants, and citizens who come back from the Diaspora.Eritrea is a unitary state. It has a parliamentary system of governance. The president of the country is elected by the parliament who then becomes the head of the government and the state at large.
Once appointed, the president later appoints the cabinet which is vetted by the parliament (Advameg, Inc., 2014). The country passed the constitution. However, it is yet to be implemented fully.The country is divided between the two major religious lines, i.e. Christians and Muslims. However, the number of Christians in the country is a bit higher. Among the Kunama group, there are several followers of traditional beliefs. Orthodox Christianity is the largest religious affiliation in the country (Advameg, Inc., 2014). Moreover, Catholicism and Lutheranism are also dominant religious ideologies in the country.
In Eritrea, the level of illiteracy is very high. The country has very few institutions of higher learning. The available institutions admit a very small number. In rural areas, people practice farming. This does not require formal education. However, well up families mainly take their children abroad to obtain better education standards. This has contributed immensely in increasing the level of poverty in the country (Advameg, Inc., 2014).
