You are the most delicate and alarmist National security I have ever witnessed around the globe. Your goals and objectives of defending our national security are vicious to citizens and your vision and mission are fuzzy. You perspicuously show no sign of knowledge about who our national true enemies are nor do you follow the anticipated scope of practice outline in your legal document.
I am still struggling to understand why your annual performance review show no sign of improvement instead, only indicating number of journalists and government critics you have silenced and murdered in cold blood. All your performed duties revolve around shooting of citizens and destruction of their properties.
Were you not edified in regards to professional duties of national security officers before inauguration to your positions at the beginning? You have contemptibly civilised your obligations instead of nationalising them. You are bribes by big personalities to go after their enemies even when those include tracking down run away brides that were strategically arranged to forcefully marry some of your bosses.
Instead of picking on external and internal national threats, you confine yourself to spying for (the) next candidates on the ground who are interested in contesting the post of the president in the next coming election, thus intimidating and obstructing them indirectly using your secret criminal agents and walk freely as if you are not involved in all these illegal executions.
Occasionally, you are made aware of intimidation and coercing of journalists, political analysts and opinion writers day by day. They report menacing of their lives and families on daily basis. You remain sitting motionlessly tossing glasses of beer at Juba Grand Hotel, and still claiming undutiful titles of national security officers. Deliberately you fail our national security system. You absurdly take journalists, political analysts and government critics as your national threat when there are clearly million of threats facing our national security
Illiterately, you are still holding on to the old age realist’s version of security. None of your top officials, not even military intelligence officers (MI) know how security in the contemporary world have shifted its meaning and focus.
Meanwhile, countries in global arena are focusing on environmental security, international security, natural and man-made disasters, diseases and biological weapons; you are far-behind processing your machinery guns.
Speaking of environmental security, villagers are drowning with their livestock in flooded shelters full to the brim with waterborne diseases, a simple discourse you should have made them aware before hands. How much does it cost your ministry to hire meteorologists that can monitor weather and predict flash flood, heavy rainfall, drought, famine, hot temperatures and climate change?
You reckon the impact of all these environmental insecurities is not threat to national security? How about when all cattle, wildlife, and crops died from drought, where will South Sudan government obtain its agricultural income? If all humans population in the affected areas drown in flash flood, where will you get a population that will inherited and develop the country for next upcoming generation?
Talking of human security, you think mass movement of economic immigrants and foreigners is not a threat to South Sudan’s economy, culture, religion and social practice? Are you still chasing girls with short skirts and trousers without knowing where their source of influence comes from? Without clear screening of foreigners’ criminal and health records, these economic immigrants can put our general population on health risks.
Many of these foreigners do not have professional experiences that South Sudan can benefit from. Rather, they come with intention of establishing bad businesses that are insulting to our culture such as prostitution. While others come with incurable diseases like HIV/AIDs. Some, like the so-called Tanzanian doctors, have even establish demonic centres where people go and cast spell on their perceives enemies.
How can our national security service see such things not as a threat to our national security? If you national security officers still think journalists, political analysts and opinion writers are our worse national enemies then think of man-made security. Some of you might live with the tenet that HIV/AIDs was a plague send to Africa by God. Some think Ebola is just a contagious illness that only infects people living across West Africa region. With all of these indirect harmful practices in international space, our national security service is still having her eyelid tightly closed up with fallacious hope that United Nation will continue providing human security to their poor citizens.
In conclusion, you have messed up a lot of things in the country, leaving your heavy work behind undone. You rob South Sudan police forces of their duties. Instead of focusing on your duty to protect our national sovereignty in all aspects of security, you are busy intimidating and harassing the common citizens. If you don’t know what national security stand for, if you don’t know what are the duties of national security, please seek help from your closest allies to provide training for our national security officers.
That way, we shall truly have a national security service to protect our national sovereignty, not just to partake in the politicized terrorization of common citizens.
