July 24, 2017 (SSB) —They say if you don’t have nothing to say, say nothing. This altruism could have been realized by Kharubino Kiir to say nothing about our book in his vendetta article against J-1 and specifically against Ateny Wek and Mayiik Ayii Deng. He falsely added our book on his items of discontent to buy the brain of the readers.

That is why we have decided to pen this rebuttal of his article on the part that touched the book we edited: “Salva Kiir Mayardit: The Joshua of South Sudan

To make it crystal clear to all our beloved readers, the speeches, articles, and letters to the President that we compiled into two books (speeches before and speeches after independence) were not done with an intention to endear ourselves, and gain access, to the president of the Republic of South Sudan.

We did it using our own finite resources and limited time, solely as a tribute to the legacy of President Salva Kiir Mayardit, one of the few South Sudanese Patriots who has dedicated their entire lives to the cause of the South Sudanese people.

Contrary to the impression created by Kharubino Kiir’s article, our intention was not and will never be to erect a bridge to meet the President or to shower us with millions of pounds.

The real intention was to feed the public with a biography of the president and importantly for our country men and women to rehearse and acquaint themselves with what the President has been preaching for the past 10 years and evaluate whether he delivered his promises.

Therefore, for your claims of the fund for second publication, we are now editing the book and second publication will be out soon.  We didn’t beg anyone before for publication and we will never beg anyone for the second edition.

On the point, whether the book has reached the president or not, we can’t disclose it to you.

In conclusion, you have erroneously attacked these officials on the platform of our book. We didn’t give the books to Hon. Ateny Wek Ateny nor Minister Mayiik Ayii Deng.

If you have your own vendetta against them, please don’t use our book as a platform to vent out your grievances.
