November 19, 2017 (SSB) — Not every post should be seen as a serious threat to the security of the government in Juba and worth has taken life of a vulnerable person who hasn’t rebelled and is not capable of raising a single man as his soldier. There are people who talk only and has no ability or intension to act violently and don’t represent any body serving as a real threat to the government. These are call daylight dreamers and they shouldn’t be subject to killing and immediate elimination. What is happening is a lack of awareness and knowledge of the scientific manner of the intelligent body. There is no clue at all that is why poor people are considered as a threat ANF eliminated without given time to gather all facts.

That shows how ignorance the men in charge of the security agencies and how weak they are to handle their job effectively. They are engaged in the elimination of wrong members of the society who can’t hurt anyone physically. Hence, these unskilled agents of security intelligent can get their hands on weak persons who are not the real threat to the presidency and they can take. Their lives away easily without a fight and no justices for them at all because they are ordinary citizens and who are not working for any organization of a serious group of people.

In that case, the unskilled agents are sending young men with the misunderstanding of his actual job after nobody who made a comment on Facebook to expresses his or her fantasy world of ideas. However, the real threat the security intelligent should have taken care of it is still out there doing his thing to destroy the government. They can smile because they have out this month you buy fooling you and now you’re engaged eliminating innocent vulnerable nobody individual a Facebook post.

Aweilians are not supporting Malong blindly, but they were forced to do so by the humiliating language of generalization, a rebuttal to Micheal Koma’s article, Malong’s Sin

November 19, 2017 (SSB) — According to the article which appeared in the Dawn newspaper of Saturday, page 3, vol 2, issue 507 entitled Malong’s Sin. In that article, Michael Koma had narrated how the politically concocted case of Malong should be treated as an individual case rather than to engulf the whole community who seem like to have opted to shelter behind their son according to the aforementioned writer.

He went further by narrating the previous insubordination did by General Malong dating back to liberation days where he said that he was arrested by late Chairman Dr. John Garang in Itang on charges of insubordination.

Also, he said that Malong was not appointed by the community but by the president who knows his ins and outs if he started to abused the comradeship by undermining the president, and as such, he should be treated as he wants and bring his rebelliousness to an end the way he expects.

To start first with the accusation of blindly support, I think the aforementioned writer knows the genesis of the problem we are living in today; he witnessed the crisis of December 2013. And since we all know, the crisis of 2013 was fuelled by the illiterate language of generalization. Our people do not know how to differentiate an individual from the community. It is he (Koma) who know how to view differences between the leaders in an intellectual and political perspective while the majority of our people who are affected by illiteracy and poverty do view things based on tribal perspectives.

Nov 19, 2017, (SSB) – Sadly, democracy dies in darkness in African young nation. South Sudan national political systems discourage us to support the beauty of our diversity within the cost of nation-building. we were aiming to build our country which was cemented and founded by precious blood of our heroes and heroine toward peaceful referendum in 2011 that would have provided hope and blessings principles of strong economy, better opportunities for us, free primary, and quality education for all, justice and rule of law for all, healthcare, or health centres, good roads and secure public transportations, and social developments.

But crossroad politics engulfed dying democracy in South Sudan. The reality of crossroad politics in this nation had rendered the political and economic dilemma where South Sudan finds itself in a double-blind direction because there are no primary objectives and primary purposes of social welfare including public policy, advocacy, migration of citizens from villages to towns, no secure borders around our nation, insecurity everywhere in the country, lack of policy making, mental disorder in leadership, stressful foundation of nation-building on tribalism, and many others. All these political factors defined us as a nation by name, and not really what define nations in the world.
