Dear Ready Reader,  

Apart from the death-facing South Sudanese  being our fellow countrymen, I believe, you,  man, being a human being, have some degree of humanity categorized by sympathy, empathy, apathy, and all those feelings of strengths and weaknesses that are traits of humankind.

I also believe you believe that a service with humility to humanity is a service for Divinity.

South Sudan, a baby nation at the gullows...! South Sudan, a baby nation at the gullows…!

If you share those feelings with me, and most importantly with the victims of injustice mentioned below,  then join me not only in a prayer but also in a pressure campaign for their loosing from that bandage of bondage the prisoners of conscience have been tied down in Kober Prison. 

Two South Sudanese clergymen, Rev. Michael Yat and Rev. Peter Yen, are facing death penalty and inhuman treatment in Kober Prison in Khartoum for no crime committed other than on…

HANDBOOK FOR AFRICANS 1

You see only the worst in you

By Field Ruwe

We, black Africans, seldom feel the urge to jump into the river and swim across, more so if it is infested with crocodiles. Yes, when we stand by the riverside, the first thought that comes to mind is the fear of drowning or being attacked by a crocodile. This mortifying psychological faintheartedness is in the majority of Africans. We are gripped with so much fear, we are afraid to make that most crucial jump out of the nest and fly into the challenging world. It is this feeling of inadequacy that affects our upward mobility, and allows non-Africans to condition us their way. They have managed to make us see only the…

Policeman Kills Wife, Four Police Officers In Juba

 By our reporter

 At least five people, including police officers, were killed in Juba on Sunday when an unidentified gunman refused orders for his arrest following a fatal family feud.

The unknown police officer, reportedly attached to emergence mobile unit of the police, the 777, killed his wife and three others in Lologo suburb at midday on Sunday. A sustained random shooting, lastedfor several hours, caused tension as residents scampered for their lives. Many thought that war had broken out again.

“There was a family dispute and the police officer killed his wife and ran to the nearby bushes,” said a Lologo resident, only requesting to reveal his first name, John.

John said officers pursued the suspect in his hideout.

“He turned his gun against the police and we are told that four officers were killed and four injured,” he said.

The gunman was later shot dead, bringing the death toll, according Lologo residents, to six. The Nation Mirror newspaper could not independently verify this figure.

Police used heavy artillery and caused panic in the city.” John said.

The midday shooting reminded the suburb of December 2013 fierce battle at the onset of the conflict. There is no known motive for the family dispute that resulted to the firing. Efforts to reach police spokesman, Monday Enoka, were not immediately successful as he did not return our repeated calls.

Nimule Shootings: What is Happening in Nimule?

South Sudan must be weaned off war

South Sudan must be weaned off war

July 5, 2015 (SSB)  —-  Since 4am, there is no more shooting. The shooting started at about 1:30am on Sunday….not far my from house. I was awakened by the loud sound of AK47. Three to four shots went off — from one gun according to my little military experience.

After about 10 minutes, while I was now guessing what was happening, sounds of guns came from Malakaya suburb. I made phone calls there and I was told some gunmen attacked a check point. After another few minutes, several shots were fired from Malakaya again and a thick smoke arose. Three trucks are set ablaze.

Then back to my suburb, gunshots started again and Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) followed. Another RGP, another one and yet another (about four loud explosions). You can imagine what the women, kids and the entire suburbs were bracing for. Fleeing. Well, we made coordination and concluded that it was futile to flee because one may fall into another ambush. We held back.

We are now told that one policeman is injured (not live threatening). The gunmen are unknown. Investigation will reveal more.

Nimule is calm now.

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…

EDUCATION IS BETTER THAN SILVER AND GOLD

Posted: June 28, 2015 by PaanLuel Wël in Junub Sudan

‘’Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world’’ Former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela

By Ter Manyang Gatwech, Kampala, Uganda

June 28, 2015 (SSB)  —  With Gold and Silver you can earn it. Education is the greatest gift owns parents gave us. With it we can earn gold and silver and even make lots of it if we can. With Gold and Silver, thieves can get it from us in whatever means even takes on life. With education, we have it as our very own treasure and no one can get it from us unless we shares it with others people.

One of the most famous quotation elaborates that silver and gold have apparently more worth than education but they decreases when you give them to others while with of education increases when you give it to others. Some people believe that gold and silver is given to those who have luck while education can be achieved by anyone who has determination and the ability to hard work. This reality should be understood by all of us because through silver and gold we cannot purchase good education but through education we can get silver and gold at one point of life.

South Sudan Ethnic based States

I have combined the information about tribes distribution along South Sudan with the nowadays states and this is the result. I try to keep ethnic uniformity in each new state, so there is a majority clearly represented. In this map the mixed nuer/dinka/Y-tribe states have been separated to form new ones almost  100% Dinka or 100% Nuer or 100% Y-tribe  states and where the ethnic groups are too many I leave the nowadays distribution -this is the case of southern states-. This distribution make any sense to you? What pros and cons do you see in states with a homogenous ethnic background?
