November 9, 2017 (SSB) — “To know the size of the chicken first removed the feathers.” To begin with, South Sudan is likely to fall in the same hole that has been failing us and left uncovered and the reasons remained ridicules whether we have the vision to see what matters in the modern world of political instability or the country is ruining itself respect.

Aweil commonly known as Northern Bahr el Ghazal state which later divided into three states with the curve from Former western Bahr el Ghazal state (Raja County) do believe in the peaceful environment without fallacy and making up. It is the community that does not believe in shortcoming neither conflict of interest among the communities.

Statistics confirmed to be one of the regions devastated over decades of years during the civil war and recently skirmishes that sparked out with the huge scale that lost thousands of lives and millions displaced within and outside the country.

Our dignity is high with self-respect and that is why we called ourselves Aweilians. Our unity and strength are paramount of everlasting peace and coexistence within ourselves and beyond our neighbors.

My fellow’s citizens and greater Aweil in particular, never get perplexed to tarnish down and dusted our dignity and respect we deserved for decades as champions of peace and harmony in this country. Gen. Paul Malong is the senior icon who deserved more respect than supporting him in regardless of this eventual political tension. However, as youth and people concern cuddling in this fear tension.

Let’s give room to our elders from Mading Aweil and Government to approach the problem amicably without jurisdiction intimidations kindly once and for all. Strong elders of Greater Aweil, Politicians and seniors Army Generals should be given path to baptise peace between president Kiir and Malong simply, because they are long-standing friends as Malong stated in his last interview that” I have no grudges with president but with some cronies who want to destabilise the country with their personal interest”.

These are people behind the conspiracy to Push Malong in the direction he does not want yet Gen Paul Malong Awan contributed undisputed efforts to this standing regime without the doubt. The sampling outcomes to define war are always Destruction, poverty, death, homeless tragedy, killing and finally genetic mutation as the impact of conflict. Therefore immediate intervention to solve the problem between brothers is urgently needed now not then later.

As Martin Luther stated, “we must learn to live together as brothers or perish together like fool”. The downfall of the attempts of governments and leaders to unite mankind is found in this- in the wrong message that we should see everyone as the same. This is the root of the failure of harmony. Because the truth is, we should not all see everyone as the same! We are not the same! We are made of different colors and we have different cultures.

We are all different! But the key to this door is to look at these differences, respect these differences, learn from and about these differences, and grow in and with these differences. We are all different. We are not the same. But that’s beautiful. And that’s okay. In the quest for unity and peace, we cannot blind ourselves and expect to be all the same. Because in this, we all have an underlying belief that everyone should be the same as us at some point.

We are not on a journey to become the same or to be the same. But we are on a journey to see that in all of our differences, that is what makes us beautiful as a human race, and if we are ever to grow, we ought to learn and always learn some more. Honestly and sincere speaking our people are always the subject of problems and we could not foresee the posterity of greater Aweil and how we shall overcome them.

Last but not least, peace and harmony drive our motto of strengthening. Preaching peace in your hard time is always a blessing from above and I, therefore, asks people and government of South Sudan for serenity and create the conducive environment and unite the people as one people for the benefit of our nation.

We are left with the revolution of construction, school, development, and nation building for a better south Sudan NOT the revolution of brutal killings, marginalization, and suffering of our people. South Sudan is bigger than any one of us and God-fearing arouses for people who care and drive our home to better place.
