The rain never stops,

The cold that freezes their hearts,
Weakening their  will to live,
Fear chase them from home,
Due to father’s beatings,
All those bruises,poverty,hunger,
Until pain become their mentor,
And hunger their companion,
All their sorrows deepen,
Wounding their youth,
So they move out,
For they believe they had another family,
That embrace all tribes,
For them to provide shelter and cloth them,
But on is their shut hope,
Now they starve in the dark,
Waiting for death to beacon…….

July 2, 2015 (SSB)  —  I’m very disturbed to hear the atrocities committed by the Government’s Forces on civilians in Unity State. I strongly condemn the brutal killing of mothers and sisters. Wherever on the Earth, killing a woman has no different of killing a Nation.

I doubt that the very soldiers who abducted, raped and burned the women had neither raped nor burned their wives. This is dangerous and the warring factions’ leaders must critically look into it. I strongly appeal to the leaders to convince their forces because the more they continue raping and burning the civilians, the highest the chances the leaders will one day face the Court after this senseless war.

To my son and daughters, who do not know about it; and my family members, who are yet to know about it–but my enduring wife, who talked me out of it–I owe you a heartful of heartfelt apologies for depriving you of the topmost and hottest investment; the shortest cut to richest in South Sudan, probably in the whole world, today! What is it? Working in the Office of President Salva: OoPS, Sorry! I will explain.

One of my days when I let my Little Doves Choir and South Sudanese students in Uganda to meet President Kiir over the project called 'Students' Fees Supplementary Funds', which was robbed from me by the committee of the government, the money of which was brought and distributed to students but stolen in Uganda in 2007 to 2010. One of my school days in 2006 when I led my Little Doves Choir and South Sudanese students in Uganda to meet President Kiir over the project called ‘Students’ Fees Supplementary Funds’, which was robbed from me/us by the committee of the government, the money of which was brought and distributed to students but stolen in Uganda in 2007 to 2010.

Yet, before I tell you many reasons leading to my turning down that…

July 1, 2015 (SSB)  —-  Gone are those days when Kuol Manyang, John Garang and Jong Reng used to force our traditional Chiefs to give them every able-bodied boy to serve in the SPLA!

Gone are those days when Kuol Manyang used to conscript young boys, cattlemen and any other middle aged men into the rebel army –the SPLA.

Well, it wasn’t a bad thing at all. We were after all fighting a common enemy for a common cause with a common vision.

But now we lack common enemy, cause and vision. Secondly the young men are being forced against their will to do something that they haven’t decided to do so.

The other is David Easton who defines politics as the authoritative allocation of resources and values.

July 1, 2015 (SSB)  —-  The police service of Warrap and Western Bahr el Ghazal states is worst in terms of security at night and human right of the citizen is left at the mercy of almighty father. People in these two states are in desperate situation and our National government under leadership of Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit should intervene with possible responses to contain the deteriorating situation Kuajok and Wau before it is getting worst. The same scenarios are happening in the rest of the states of Greater Equatoria region especially in Yambio and Juba city. To me is another hidden agenda by some individual who want to terrorist the president that, if they are relieve in the forthcoming government reshuffling, they can simply cause security instability within. These plans and moves are connected to 4th Anniversary Independence celebration. The police service is so corrupt also that, the poor ordinary citizen and the public as a whole have no confidence about their protection in some states come 9th July Independence celebration. The police which was to safeguard and protect the lives of innocent civilian has also become insecurity to the entire civil population country wide.
