PHOTOGRAPHIC INTERPRETATION: REMEMBERING THE UNSUNG HEROES OF THE SPLA, SPLM Founders, Teda Village, Ethiopia

June 3, 2016 (SSB) —- The purpose of this article is an attempt to clear the air pollutions regarding some writers’ arguments that the self-determination of the Republic of South Sudan was brought to being by the current SPLM in-Opposition’s leader, Dr. Riek Machar, as opposed to the late charismatic leader, Dr. John Garand de Mabior. Thus, the aforesaid argument has been up in the air after the signing of the CPA, which culminated in secession for the independence of South Sudan in 2011, spearheaded by the incumbent president, Salva Kiir mayardit after the demise of Dr. John Garang de Mabior in the suspicious presidential helicopter crash on July 30, 2005.

Therefore, the argument was real and intense between the debaters without any compromise from each side till this hour when writing this piece of work. In other words, each side is convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that their side of the story was the historical fact. If one has to pose a question to either side, does each side has any objective data to support their conclusions whether or not the Independence South was brought to being by either Dr. John Garang or Dr. Riek Machar?

June 3, 2016 (SSB) — Despite his incapability, the very Lino Lual, a self-professed hater of Santino Akot Abiem, Makiir Gai and Sunday de John has again managed to write his incoherent, vague, libeling but lengthy article in the interest of his uninformed clique.

His current article, titled, “Servant as a leader: Hon. Makiir Gai is not the leader of Aguok Kuei community” published by PaanLuel Wël blog has been lengthy with little content. I think, I could be dealing with a psychopath, one that I can correctly refer to as insane bloviator.

June 3, 2016 (SSB) — The Polataka was in Acholi home land and was a fertile area for Agriculture. Within one year and half, the activities of agriculture and building started. We exhibited number of things in Polataka as composed of many sources of area development. A Polataka face foundation was a camp of 13 groups with thousands of thousands of children including marerek. When the completion of groups’ mixture was over, the whole camp started activities in different fields such Agriculture, School, military training and discipline etc. We built houses roofing for grass thatching in our groups.

A good number of children learned in those years how to build the houses thatching with local roofing. If a group has many children who know how to build a house, the group can finish building of roof up for one day. We were really hardworking children. In a day, some of us can go for grass cutting, others will go for short poles and long poles, but still other will remained to measure the house, dig the holes for short poles, and the whole house will stand in few hours until it is used.

SPLM House

SPLM WHAT?

June 3, 2016 (SSB) — Many South Sudanese spend a great deal of time including myself critizing the government of the Republic of South Sudan under the leadership of H.E Gen. Salva Mayardit, before and after the signing of the peace accord between the government and the former rebels of Dr. Machar, and there’s positively a lot to complain about the future of this nation but at last what I realize that it’s not just the government that has problem. People appear in South Sudan to be going insane and it is almost as if we have been cursed with lack of common sense and this applies from the very top of society all the way down to the very foundation.
