SPLM Extra-ordinary Convention

June 9, 2016 (SSB) —- The ideal South Sudanese national unity is entirely lies with our historical party. This  is  a challenge  to  us  as   members  and supporters  of SPLM  and  it  will  be  legacy to us  too,  if  we embrace call to  complete  the  job that  (he)  Comrade  Dr.  John Garang De Mabior and millions of his colleagues struggled and died for.

At  personal  level,  it is imperative to say, Sudan’s  People Liberation Movement (SPLM) is only  viable  rallying point for  South Sudanese unified political  activities, of  which previous  party internal dialogue  initiated  by  sisterly different regional ruling parties  should  be  reactivated for party  to  move  to  its  vision board.

As staunchest member of (SPLM), I have often said to any despaired members  that  SPLM and  South Sudan as  country are  intertwined, because  Sudan’s  People  Liberation Movement  is  South Sudan and South Sudan  is  SPLM., once when South  Sudanese forgone  SPLM , they  equally  forgone  South Sudan as a sovereign state.

June 9, 2016 (SSB) — Thanks you very much for keeping us safe till today. Lord, Revolution is not Evolution if our people mistaken it so. Please take away this term ‘Revolution in South Sudan’. Although we are living, we are just humans without good means of living. The revolution they have intentionally made was a symptomatic and preludes of our life today that economics play a large part in it.

I ask you Lord in the name of your begotten son Jesus Christ that the innominate candidates of that far South Sudanese election would not cause anything of the previous kind. The elders have got a little although they said human needs are not fulfil but youth have nothing at all. Youth labor enthusiastically and eagerly for a wage so that they can acquire the needs of life but all in vain due to the unspeakable economic inflation in the Country. They have totally run down because of lack of enough food leave alone other luxuries.
