Some South Sudanese are sick of fallacy, stereotype, egocentrism and prejudices. As the result of these intellectual sicknesses, they are blind to see white from black, truth from lie.  Above all, they do not differentiate between the truth telling and sycophancy.

The truth , they don’t want to hear is the praise that President Salva Kiir deserves as the ‘’Symbol of Liberation’’  .if you mention this truth and  because of playing  politics , they call you a sycophant .

Naturally, Salva Kiir is  a good man. I first saw him in Ashwa Displaced Camp in 1993, When a Dinka Bor man shot dead two Dinka Bare el gazal youth  . The killing of these two men almost provoke a dangerous communal fighting between Bor and Bare el gazal . All us know  Dinka Bare el gazal  are   half lawless people .but  Cdr Kiir  quelled  down the  anger  .  This was the first achievement of Kiir I witnessed.

In 1996, the enemies of liberation struggle created a myth,’’ Dinka Bor was born to rule and Dinka Bare el gazal was born to die in front line’’ .  This issue almost caused division among the SPLM/A  but Cdr Kiir stepped in  and chided  Dinka Bare el gazal leaders who were fanning that meaningless  mythology .  This was second achievement of Salva Kiir , I witnessed

In reality , Salva Kiir contributed  80% to the  success of Dr .  John Garang  in term of human capital . When Kerbino  Kuanyin Bol rebelled against the SPLM/A in 1980s , Salva Kiir stood with John Garang  and this gave  Garang  upper hand ,  otherwise,   if  Salva Kiir would  have joined hands with Kerbino Kuanyin , SPLM/A would  have not succeeded under John Garang as we have seen with the  independence of South Sudan  today ,  because majority of SPLA soldiers were Dinka Bare el gazal , however , as the result of division ,  they were divided between Kiir and Kuanyin and Kiir commanded more than Kuanyin.  This was his third achievement of Salva Kiir  I heard of

In 1995, when the issue of ‘’Dinka Bare el Gazal  are majority in frontline and Dinka Bor have abandoned the war and  resorted to business in  Agoro and Koboko in Uganda ‘’ , Salva Kiir came in  and rebuked Bol Madut  of that .

In fact , Bol Madut challenged Kuol Manyang Juuk in Nimule  to go with him to Ashwa contention  to count , how many Dinka Bor soldiers are there in frontline .

This prompted Cdr Kuol Manyang Juuk to mobilize only Dinka  Bor men in May 1995 at  Nimule Corridor  but Kiir came in and stopped that tribal or clannish mobilization of soldiers.  This was the four achievement of Salva Kiir I witnessed.

In 1983 , when SPLM/A  was formed , Salva Kiir was one of the five pantheons who sat and  formed it .And,  these pantheons  are Dr John Garang de Mabior , Kerbino Kuanyin Bol , William Nyuon Bany , Salva Kiir and Arok Thon Arok .  This was fifth achievement of Kiir   I heard of.

Therefore , I can say Salva Kiir is  the living symbol of the liberation struggle   For  that reason  ,  Kiir  must be respected  because his achievements  outweigh his  failures ,  he should not be rubbished like a dog as they  are doing in name of  false reform agenda.

For above reasons I tell you ‘’Salva Kiir is living symbol of liberation struggle ’’   what is sycophancy about it  ? Is he not living symbol?  Has he not achieved what am saying? If you are jealous   of Kiir achievements  , then be it .  .

Mind you , Salva Kiir contributed  80% to success of John Garang ,  Salva Kiir stood with John Garang  100% when  Riek was against  Garang ,  Therefore , the  degree of support Kiir gave  to Garang , the same degree of support to be given to Kiir  by all South Sudanese

Mind you , Dinka Bare el gazal are loose and lawless people, if Kiir was not controlling  them in 21 year war ,  they would have destroyed the SPLM/A long time ago . They would have abandoned SPLM/A as Riek  Machar  and his lawless loyalists abandoned SPLM,A  and  went to Khartoum  in  1994 .

Imagine in Yei Crisis  in 2003, if it were not  Kiir controlling themselves , those of Garang Mabil would have started the fighting .

Unlike Riek Machar , who failed to control Brigadier  Lam  and Brigadier Kuac of Tiger  Division , who started the December 15 fighting in Juba .

In fact , Salva Kiir is RIGHT MAN but he has no tongue to express his RIGHTEOUSNESS  , he is a victim of  prejudices , Because of prejudices ,  if he is not careful ,  he would be like two former Africans presidents  in the history  . These are   Presidents   Milton Obote of Uganda and   President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana .

President Obote was the one who declared Uganda Independence from Britain in 1963 ,  but he was overthrew from power and died in exile.

President Nkrumah was the one who declared Ghana Independence e but in the name of false reform , he was overthrew and died in exile .

This is what fake reformers are trying to do in South Sudan . First, they have assassinated Kiir character in their white, negative propaganda. so Kiir is now evil and they are angels . Secondly, they are now pushing him out to die in exile like Obote and Nkrumah .

However , ‘’What goes around,  come around’’ , if the so-called reformers  were not  the one who destroyed  South Sudan with Kiir for 8 good years ,blessed are them  but if they contributed to the failure of South Sudan with Kiir in one way or another  then they will also taste the fruit of curse of  their contributions  to the  failure of  South Sudan . Mark my words.

Chapter Eleven 

After Abuk  Deng, Madut had been marrying other three wives the following three years. They were Amou Malual, Achol Geng and Amear Bil. He gave each woman a herd of cattle as soon as he married her. He built each woman a homestead. He didn’t dig the farms. If he was asked why, he said he was not the son of a farmer or fisherman. He didn’t stay with any of his four homesteads Luak, he stayed in the village chief Luak during daytime and his food was taken to him there.

He pretended as though he wouldn’t love any of his wives yet he was devoted to all  of them in secret. One day he traveled to a black smith who made beads by ostrich egg shells. He bought four beads. He went to Abuk. He gave her one bead. He warned her not to show it to the other three wives. He told her that she was the only woman she loved so much among his wives. He went to the other three wives and gave them beads at different times. As he gave each woman he warned her not to show the other women and that she was the only one woman he loved so much.

One afternoon, Madut’s four women went to collect firewood. Amou and Amear quarreled and they fought. Abuk and Achol separated them and stopped them from fighting.

“I can’t talk with you” Amou said

“Why can’t I talk with you? We are all Madut’s wives” Amear replied.

“Do you think Madut loves you the way he loves me?” Amou asked.

“Yes, madut loves me” Amear answered.

“If he loves you, what has he given you?”

“What about you? What has he given you if he loves you?”

“Madut loves me and he gave me this beautiful bead of an ostrich egg shell” Amou showed her bead

“What about this” Amear showed her bead of ostrich egg shell.

All the four women were surprised by Madut’s trick. Amou was greatly disturbed by this deceiving incident. It was discovered that all four women had the same bead. In that evening, the four women cooked and ate the meal with their four children. Madut moved from home to home and never found food. The following morning, the four wives came to Madut and asked him why he deceived them about the beads. Madut told them that all of them were his wives and he had to treat them equally. All the other wives forgave Madut, but Amou who was boasting about being loved so much never forgave him.

Two months went. Madut put on his feather of glory and with other eighty men went hunting for elephants. An elephant was killed. Hunters were so many that they scrambled over the elephant carcass. As all hunters were naked Madut cut of the testicles of a man called Mareng Lual. Maleng didn’t feel the pain. When the animal finished he fell down dead. The man who cut his testicles was unidentified. Mareng was carried home. Madut took to the meat he brought from hunting to his wife Amou Malual. Amou found the testicles of the man in the meat.

“What is this?” she wondered. She called in her husband Madut and showed the testicles to him.

“That is a man’s testicle” said Madut.

“Who’s?” Amou asked.

“For Mareng Lual.”

“What shall we do?”

“Don’t tell anyone”

Madut buried the testicles. Months passed. Amou beat to death a calf. When madut was about to beat her, she said “I will tell the other secret.” Madut stopped from beating her and walked away very angry.

Amou continued misbehaving and always threatened Madut with the other secret. Amou first born son was very young, she was called Dut.

“Madut had left the home of Amou Malual for the home of Achol Geng for fear that Amou might cause him problems. As it has been said, “there is no good home.” Madut got some problems at Achol’s home again. Madut quarreled with Achol and he beat her violently. The neighbour came and helped Achol from Madut. That very night Madut and Achol went to the hut to sleep. At mid night Achol woke up, she lit a bundle of grass and moved around the hut.

“What are you looking for? You will burn the hut. If you burn the hut I will beat you severely and you will suffer and suffer” Madut said.

“I’m looking for love” Achol said.

“Which love?” Madut asked.

“Our love during engagement. The sweet words you had been telling me. Where are they now?” asked Achol.

“Love is different from stubbornness” said Madut.

“A person you love you can’t beat like this.” Achol said
