What the South Sudanese politicians should learn about the resignation?

THE NEED FOR WHO TO BLAME FOR ONE'S OWN MISDOING...

February 10, 2017 (SSB) — It has become a culture in South Sudan to see the Government employees just resign as they wish sometime with or without following the right procedure. Such a conduct should stop with immediate effect. Even if a person is happy with the system because of poor performance of the government, that does not warrant a politicians under normal circumstances to break the rule of procedure in the resignation process.

The law is that if one wants to resign from the system because of bad governance or another belief he or she holds against the system, then, he or she must follow the right procedure in order to show that he or she knows the system and if her or she is given an opportunity he or she may be able to establish the system.

However in the recent time, some of the politicians who have shown that they are fighting for good governance are not showing how good governance works by following the right procedure and right system. What they must learn from today onward is that good governance start with good system and good system comes through following right procedures in all that is done.

February 10, 2017, (SSB) — Identifying youth leaders is a sole responsibility of those leaders who are already in leadership. The future of youths in South Sudan is uncertain. Youths are couched for executing tribal conflicts, followers of weak and self-ambition politicians, failed politicians, tribal politicians, and their potential talents supposed to be use for national development is always exploited by these politicians and put youths as a fence for their own protection.

Youths always died in a big number in South Sudan, and nobody mind about their lives even parents. Both those in leadership, and parents failed to advise youths because youths long time ago live by advices of elderly people and parents. Lives of youth hood is stupid, and fool,  they relayed on their own strengths and ability, and therefore, elders, leaders, and parents  adjust youths on the right paths of save life.

February 10, 2017 (SSB) — I call upon all South Sudanese across the world to dismiss SPLA- IO propaganda against the South Sudan Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya regarding the disappearance of Dong Samuel Luak and Aggrey Idri Ezbon. For the past two weeks, SPLA- IO remnants and their International organization’s cohorts have been fabricating malicious allegations that it is the South Sudan embassy responsible for the kidnapping of activists, Dong Samuel and Aggrey Idri claimed to be allied to the opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar.

I would wish to assure the public that the South Sudan Embassy in Kenya under the stewardship of our humble ambassador Chol Mawut has nothing to do with the whereabouts of the two activists.  Now it is known that the friends and relatives of the above mentioned victims have already filed a case at the Nairobi Milimani courts against suspects who have no connections with the South Sudan Embassy in Nairobi or even the Government whatsoever.
