This song was a tribute to her:


A tribute to Mother Zeineb Yassin (1918 – 2005)

She passed away 10 years ago, this date (28.01.2005). She was born and grew up in Afabet. She joined the EPLF in 1977, together with her husband and her two sons. She worked behind the military lines supporting freedom fighters and mobilizing the people. She is well known for her revolutionary Tigrait poetry. She was known in the EPLF as the ‘Mother of the fighters’. After the EPLF withdrew from Afabet, she lived in Nakfa for most of the time, until independence day. Afterwards, she returned to her hometown, Afabet, and lived there until her death.

This is what Asmarino.com wrote about her:

“Adey Zeinab Yassin is considered as the mother of Eritrea.  She was a simple but committed mother that Eritrea had ever seen during the harshest period our struggle for independence.  She stood firm and mothered our fighters to the best of her ability. Many fighters were touched by her strength, vigor, generosity and motherly qualities.   Most of all she was known for her words of wisdom and uplifting poetry.  She won the respect of all fighters and the people who knew her.”
