November 5, 2017 (SSB) — South Sudan has been engulfed by what our politicians called as a senseless and objective-less war and still they don’t want to bring it to a complete end. This war has no objectives other than the fulfillment of individual interests and cementation of their positions. It started as a power wrangling within the ruling party which thereafter exploded and subjected the innocent citizens who have nothing to do with politics into pervasive and humiliating abject poverty they didn’t experience since the creation of Adam and Eve.

It is a war that is characterized by wild and crazy destruction of properties, brother killing another brother and inhuman raping of elderly people including men. This current war of interests and positions is not in the good interest of our people since it has subjected them to the unbearable life of miser-ability and beggar-hood in the middle of abundant resources such as, oil, minerals, fertile land that can germinate mental, forest and reservoir water to mention but just a few. This SPLM catastrophe cannot and will never be won by either side to the conflicts.
