“Looting is a system driven from capitalist institutions in Washington, London and other Northern centres, and accommodated by junior partners across the Third World” Patrick Bonda.

August 8, 2016 (SSB) — Behind firmly closed doors, South Sudan independence, where economics activities are directed toward National interest, was seen as a threat. A threat to whom? Well, in this World, in case you don’t know, there are wolves; the Multinational corporations. These Corporations are the proponents of globalisation. They are the ones which run the affairs of the most powerful countries. Their interests are not about people or humanity but profits.
Therefore, the presumption with the so-called friends of South Sudan was that an independent South Sudan was to be used as an open market. A market where its resources would be extracted and used for the interest of the Corporations. Such a plan, in my view, killed John Garang! The wolves knew that John would have been a hard nut to crack. However, President Kiir Mayardit has become another hard head leader. So, in their views, President Kiir must be unseated or kill because his government has rejected the plan. This is the reason why South Sudan was programmed into a war.
In the book, ‘Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky’ (2005); edited by Peter R. Michell and John Schoeffel, Noam Chomsky revealed that “the main commitment of the United States, internationally in the Third World, must be to prevent the rise of nationalist regimes which are responsive to pressures from the masses of the population for improvement in low living standards and diversification of production; the reason is, we have to maintain a climate that is conducive to investment, and to ensure conditions which allow for adequate repatriation of profits to the West”.
