January 8, 2016 (SSB)  —  The leisure of Christmas holiday had given me the opportunity to explore some websites where I came across the following season’s greetings; titled: “New Year Message From Jieng Council of Elders” published at the PaanLuel Wel: South Sudanese Bloggers Website on the 4th of January, 2016.

Upon skimming through it, I saw Hon. Maker Thiong Maal’s name as one of the signatories; although I am not certain whether it is the same Maker that was in-charge of the education system during the liberation struggle or a different person of the same name as the name Maker is very common among Jieng. If it is Maker that was in-charge of the education system in Kakuma refugee camp, then I intend to write to him.

January 8, 2016 (SSB)  —-  First and foremost, Your Excellency Philip Aguer Panyang, allow me to congratulate you for the selection made by the people of Twic Community and Greater Bor at large not forgetting His Excellency Salva Kiir Mayardit, the President of the Republic of South Sudan for his trust bestowed upon the selection owing to your new job as Governor of new Jonglei State.

Kiir and the battle for the chairmanship of the SPLM

January 8, 2016 (SSB)  —  My dear readers, allow me to bring into your attention some of the instances where in my opinion, I feel the president has been confused and thus explains the lack of progress in this country. The proverbial elephant I alluded to above was said to have been chased by villagers. The story had it that, sometimes back in a certain village in this country there was a young boy who happened to witness his father and some men in the village seriously engaged in a fight with a stray elephant. His dad and the rest would run after the elephant seeking to kill the elephant and once the elephant turned to fight them, they would back off and instead ran for their dear lives. This went on for quite a moment until the young boy wondered why his dad and the rest were confusing the elephant in that when the elephant does not engage them in a fight, the villagers struggle to fight it, and when the elephant turns to fight them, they run away.

pound devaluation

January 8, 2016 (SSB)  —-  Many of our citizens and leaders have contended that the policy of devaluation, financial restructuring or managed float (not free float) could be what we needed on our way to joining the East African Community (EAC). But some also qualified that argument with an assertion that the policy will not succeed on its own. It must stand on a firm economic foundation which is geared toward creating vibrant domestic markets that are able to stand on their own without need for external help in terms of goods and services.

January 8, 2016 (SSB)  —  The history of accreditation in South Sudan Universities both Public and Privates institutions have low turn’s lack of nationalism to make South Sudan a better academic inclusive and conducive environment that may attract even foreigners to study in our richest new nation where we have different types of resources than any other nation in the world that may also engulf international attention on academic studies.

THE EASED AFRICA I WANT

From many wires, I landed on the following quotes about JCE and for JCE. Thence, they provoked me to join the shout on the role of this supposedly tribal outfit that is possibly and forcibly establishing itself as a tribo-politico stakeholder, say ‘shareholder’, in the management of the nation, alongside the president who has left his state house’s door azure to these 77 honourable elders-cum-leaders.

In short, I would rather the Jieng (Dinka) communities cancelled off these elders because they sprang up during and for the December war as seen in their chairman’s interview with SBS Radio last year, here:

Justice Riiny: “Jiɛ̈ŋ Council of Elders was formed in mid-2013. It was started after Riek Machar announced his candidacy for…

While each us of us has a distinc stakehold in the building a nation, the leader in this process is the government with its various institutions. The result or product at the end of such a process is to empower people of one nation.
