RSS coat of ARMS

South Sudan’s coat of arms, in which the eagle symbolizes vision, strength, resilience and majesty, and the shield and spear the people’s resolve to protect the sovereignty of their republic and work hard to feed it.

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — With due respect to your citizenry opinion article brother Manyang David Mayar dated 13th August 2016 which you circulated in the media regarding the current trend the Country is going through and particularly the recent pressure resolution of the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) to send 4,000 third force to protect the civilians, a move you said is invading the Country.

In your opinion brother Manyang David, you said and I quote, “In the current situation where the region and the international community are hovering over South Sudan with their vast different interests, I am of a view that President Kiir and his government should consider taking the government back to Khartoum and those who want the power and the resources will go and get it”.

Dear brother Manyang David, you cited that re-uniting back to Sudan will make the Country strong and will not make it fall – “united we stand and separated we fall” this phrase is misplaced. You also misquoted our hero Dr. John Garang De Mabior whom you said he was for – a view for a strong united Sudan – than splitting the country into two weak nations.

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — When patriot South Sudanese look at the world, we see a swarm of threats and hatred. Threat that start from our region to the United States. Our neighboring countries including Uganda and Kenya are plausibly warming up for aggression against South Sudan any time at behest of the United States.

There is no doubt that the Washington and United Nations are extending their usual aggressions on the pretext of promoting democracy, humanitarian assistance, human rights and protection of civilians as means of ousting independently-minded governments to South Sudan. Washington did it before to the leaders of countries which had refused to show deference to the Washington such as Saddam of Iraq, Gaddafi of Libya and Assad of Syria.

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — The following quote from Richard Wolffe, sum it up well, “the Republicans tried to sink Obama. Instead, the party imploded” to me, It is not only the Republican Party which imploded, the American foreign policy imploded too under democrat party, As white house in fighting intensified.

In this point I would like to advise my fellow South Sudanese to cease insulting in general our friends American as a result of Obama’s government representative in UN, hijacking, AU and South Sudan good faith and well discussed agreement. Then turn it into controversial UN army force to restore already replaced Riek Machar. Of which this dishonest group see it as a logo of their corrupt project of dismantling successful Republican policy in South Sudan.

Riek Machar with Ban Ki-moon

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon meets with Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — United Nation has planned South Sudanese to kill themselves with Ethiopians and Kenyans in the proxy war. The Western or Whiteman bloc of United Nation has planned the other black Africans to kill the other black Africans in Regime change war in South Sudan.

Based on the UNMISS exaggerated report that South Sudan government has failed to provide security to its citizen, based on the sympathizers of SPLM/A IO like the former UN Chief in South Sudan Hilde Johnson who wasted her money in supporting Riek Machar to come in power but Riek eventually failed to overthrow the government., based on the lobbying of SPLM G-10  like Majak Agot and Pagan Amum to place South Sudan under the UN Trusteeship, the UN has finally decided to change the regime in Juba.

communique from IGAD

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — If two South Sudanese armies could not co-exist, how could we contemplate a condition where the SPLA would tolerate a foreign army to command Juba including the national airport?

Far from bringing peace to S. Sudan, this toxic vote could reverse the current relative calm in the country and destabilise the rest of East Africa.

In the chaotic situation in the country, you could still discern good from evil.  The moral epicentre still falls firmly on the side of the TGoNU. The naive Africans and hegemonic West, have failed to see it. Or, are they deliberately ignoring it?

Riek Machar with Ban Ki-moon

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon meets with Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — United Nation Secretary General Ban ki Moon has been failing to resolve a single conflict for last ten years. Ki Moon has achieved  nothing in Syria, Yemen, Libya and he leaves  UN soon . To cover up his failure at the UN he hastily wants to send troops to South Sudan, so this can go down in history as his only achievement at the UN.

United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki Mon is nothing a weak man who flexes his muscle against the women but fear the man. Ban Ki Mon is a man who confronts the weak and fears the strong. Ban Ki Mon is a dog who barks at hare but wags his tail at lion to flatter him.  Ban KI Moon is the man who pays much attention to minor issues and ignores the major one.

RSS coat of ARMS

South Sudan’s coat of arms, in which the eagle symbolizes vision, strength, resilience and majesty, and the shield and spear the people’s resolve to protect the sovereignty of their republic and work hard to feed it.

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — In this article, I will discuss, first the role the international community and United States of America should have played as soon as peace descended on South Sudan in 2005. The second part will discuss how some IGAD countries are making it difficult for peace to reign in South Sudan, magnificently, for their own vested interest. This part is also intended to make South Sudanese particularly the politicians to be aware of the fact that, the IGAD is not the same IGAD they knew in the past. Rather, it is the IGAD run and managed by new breed of leaders for their own survival. I will conclude the article with what the international sponsored regional proposed arms embargo and economic sanction will bring to bear on peace to reign in the Republic of South Sudan.

US Congress calls for arm embargo on South Sudan, in addition to 4,000 forces

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — How the world body is handling conflict in South Sudan is totally an alarming to high tension and deteriorating present peaceful environment toward collapsing of peace agreement.  I said recently in my last article, that IGAD, AU and UN are seen like solving South Sudan conflict but fuel it in another way around. SPLA as a national army + South Sudan rebels + 16,000 Strong UN troops = definitely destruction of South Sudan, no implementation of peace agreement in letter and spirit.

It is better to listen than to ignore or ignoring somebody may turn on your side and you may become a victim. If South Sudan total population is estimated 12 million, and 2 million turned rebels, 1 million supporting foreign troop’s intervention, and 9 million remained loyal to the government, democratically, will you ignore 9  million and support 1+2  million, then do you think you are really advocating for peace or war?
