April 2, 2017 (SSB) — The what I can called self-government of the Republic of South Sudan seems to be reside with the administrative operatives of the government and not in the people, this government is being run as private business institution with first choice for some and bad feeling for others and no effort is being made to synchronize South Sudanese from the grass root level.
The policy of the administrative operative’s government of South Sudan seems to be that of segregation and decree; the more people are divided from the proletariat and are at daggers and overwrought against each other. These are the conditions existing in this country which are against the ideology of democracy which is the unmistakable where some people take law into their own hands by threatening and obliteration of people life whenever you attempt to say whatever you have seen wrong.
This government of South Sudan has completely show powerlessness to flatten out; there is an incapacitating legacy of unsteadiness of South Sudan government, this has absolutely showed the lack of sense of patriotism and love for the country. The government of South Sudan under the leadership of President Salva Kiir, is been disconcert by those who pretend to be loyal to him during day time and turn against him in evening hours by not showing the love for the country values and friendly attitudes to their own citizens.
Many citizens have completely lost hope in this country’ ability to govern itself not just because of the problems facing the country but due to the fundamental lack of hope in the leadership style that was chosen by then to rule the nation.
This present situation is caused by maltreatment issues of the private interest in the country by government officials and there is no development of familiarity since the beginning of tribal war in Dec. 2013, amongst the communities in the grassroots’ stratum rather than hate which is planted and propagated by the leadership. This wrong handing is in the lack of nationalism and obligation among our leaders for the welfare of the country.
The absence of the spirit of nationalism is most conspicuous that our leaders lack of political will for them to lead the country. President Kiir, has tense a line of reconciliation several times to ensure that the way of people life is free and release the general public will but it was lay down by individuals group for their private interests and not interest of the public to bring about the rule of order and justice in which power guarantees the general interests of the people and common good against pressure of private interests.
All problems of the nation building are solved and the person of the same state irrespective of their differences become a nation and signifies the situation of unity and diversity but the reason for South Sudan is that, the country is standing threat to its survival. This nation has become a violence and anarchy zone. The fact remain that South Sudan history is full of tribalism where leaders of the nation developed the spirit of partiality and the strapping is taking us to that direction where we move from the conditions of marginalization state to tribal state.
The doctrine of South Sudan has lost much of its sanctity and the problem is not one asking whether we should throw off a thing called sovereignty, it is rather one of asking with regard to what we have gain from the independent of our country for the last five years ago.
In every corner, there is a debate on what is treacherous to the future of the country under this regime but there is a Nigerian proverb saying, that there is no wicked ruler without wicked advisers and this is ceaselessly true in this current moment of South Sudan. People have been crying for correction of the government system which can only suppose to begin with leadership prospective but nothing has been done.
