November 24, 2016 (SSB) — We have been challenged economically as a nation and you my people may be thinking that the government is not doing anything to counter this. I am glad to inform you that we are working on how to achieve a sustainable economic growth. We are promoting social equity and this will mean giving equal opportunities in all fields to all the citizens of south Sudan in a healthy environment.

Before anything of this sort is achieved, security and safety must be guaranteed to all the citizens of south Sudan because it’s only in a peaceful and safe environment people can get to work on issues affecting them or the nation as a whole on daily basis. My government is going to release funds to improve our road conditions and security will be deployed in areas where unknown gunmen have been maiming our citizens.

Our first step is to ensure citizens are traveling freely within the country without any fear of bad road conditions or being attacked by criminals. We want to promote inter-state trade and this is only achievable when there is access to good roads and a good security. I want to see people of different states doing business together. Exchange of local products across the country is what we are promoting as it will improve trade in the whole nation.

Ecological health is another thing that we are working on. We are working on how to improve both human health and the conditions of our environment as these two are dependent of one another. Our health system isn’t to the standards and that’s why many of our people seek treatment outside the country anytime they are sick. My government will allocate funds to improve the conditions of our hospitals and we as citizens need to take care of our environment.

We are going to enable, facilitate and partner with businesses or private sectors in our country. There is an urge for us to work hand in hand. We will promote local businesses as they are source of income for the common man. In every country that is excelling economically, local products are of great impact on the economy. Local farmers needing any assistance will be helped to achieve their goals. Things like fertilizers will be distributed among our local farmers.

Agricultural products are the main contributors towards economic growth in any country. Let’s promote farming and any other agricultural activity in our nation. We are not yet certain but we are planning to be giving things like seeds and farm tools to our local farmers just to lessen the burden and cost of production. So my dear people, you will benefit dearly whether you are in the city or in the village because we are extending our hand to all directions.

Also we are going to partner with educational institutions. You all know education is crucial for anything or any plan to be executed in this modern days. Our citizens need knowledge on how to do business and how to utilize the scarce resources available in our nation. My government encourages and promote entrepreneurship. We need young elites to start businesses of their own. The government will give you the necessary assistance you will need.

This is a fraction of what we are going and planning to do to promote a resilient economy.

  2. ” We need young elite to start business of their own” “The government will give you necessary assistance you will need” Where will the government get money to do that yet your ministry of finance failed to pay off Traders who even completed their project e.g Bridge Crossing Kiir in Akon. Now that trader is arrested in Uganda where he took the equipment! Why don’t call rally and tell what are articulating here. Please keep away from joining this intellectual website, otherwise you will not manage to respond to critical rebuttals to your articles unless Ateny Wek Ateny is the one disguised in your name! You are a disgrace to this nation!

    You finally come out of running the nation in silence! But things have already fallen apart Mr. President, you surrounded by corrupt officials who worked day and night for your downfall. You lost respect because of them. Think twice to reserve the little remaining reputation and history!

    Instead of blaming the president, you are suppose to blame yourself first. When you sit always playing games waiting for your uncle who is currently working under the same president you abused to come back home with your daily bread, where you do think he get that money from? he steal from the govt in order to feed you who is siting always doing nothing and waiting for your uncle stolen money to feed you, and that is how corruption started, which mean you are also corrupt. If you was to be working somewhere and be independent, do you think that your uncle would have stolen money?

    Mr. president, it is a good step to start from now since the crisis of 2013, and July 8/ 2016. There is no development, and things got stuck, and we have seen the punishable & consequences of war. Please take heart, you know it very how south Sudanese treated their leaders like John Garang in the bush, now they turn it on you, and later on, I hope they will appreciated your humble spirit, and leadership humility. Take care, wars don’t reign forever. I hope through these consequences, our economy will be the best if we revive it properly without corruption as a whole.

    President Kiir is a disgrace & punishment to South Sudanese,

    Those shallow assertions of yours will never work Mr. President, the problem of South Sudan today is YOU. You have talked on several occasions and couldn’t offer tangible solutions to our misery, Your office is den of thieves where millions of dollars are stolen under your watch (Office). Please wise up and save your little legacy before being drown by economy, Just go home and enjoy your loots at Malualkoon.

    Mabior, Chagai Nhomriir debai, David matiop. The world is on a mission to discovery of planet, tell your president Kiir mayardit, that nicotin had been proved long time ago in mou or Drink, we need science education in South Sudanese no war, he should accept Riek machar in Juba without preconditions, I know you don’t feel shame coz u guilty of attrocities in South Sudan now, but this will hunt u down soon, there is no ever lasting Kingdom, Kiir days are numbered, with his supporter fake slogan that he liberated the country, did we liberated it for Kiir to come a destroy it? He should be alert that he had cross the red line. We had exhausted all the effort to let visionless Kiir conced the country top diplomatic and administrative seat. Otherwise if you people of BarElgazaliation think he is ur messiah then he should be appointed a president of the coordination of Barh el gazal state in the government of national unity of South Sudan. We can’t afford to see our ancestors land and resources being exhuasted by Sudan in our watch just to keep stupid Kiir primitive mayardit in power. Son of upper Nile province the richest region of all kind of resources, being it human resources, like Dr John Garang, Dr lam Akol, Pagan Amum, Dr majak Agoot, Gier chuang Aloung, Dr Joseph manytuil Weijang, John Luk Jock Dr marial Benjamin, Chol Thon Balok to mentioned the few though we are being betrayed by Riek machar and his in law Taban Deng Gai, we must come to gether and liberate greater upper Nile province from this rogue and tyrant bigotory in Juba not forgetting David YauYau.

You foolish and will always remain a foolish president in the eye of the whole world. The good people of your region will be the neanderthal of the South Sudan because of you.

        Dumb ass president ” ati my government” instead of your government or our government,..You can carry it in your bag all you want but all in all South Sudan is not going anywhere with you as a leader. Step aside if you care. You are sleeping with Taban Deng but he will be the one that will cut your head off and take it to the Nuer Land or Fangak the Nuer Washington and he will be welcome there as a hero. Be careful with him though. He is a traitor and a Nuer too. He is there in Juba out of conviennces not for the care of the people of South Sudan.
