January 27, 2018 (SSB) — South Sudanese people are dying day and night under the external pressures and internal interests. With internal interest, South Sudanese politicians are divided and allow external interest exploiting the young country in the name of concerning about the lives of citizens. Really, when and how? I say no, and nobody who is concerning about the lives of South Sudanese citizens outside there.

Those of Nikki Haley who always saying this statement lying to themselves. If you are concerning about somebody’s life, and you feel the pain of your fellow human being and hardship is going through, you don’t add anger, you don’t insult, you help and find solutions. That is the right spirit of somebody who is concerning the pain of others.

Us is said to be a long friend to South Sudan, and US government is always hampering people of South Sudan indirectly or impede the progress of peace process by lack of funds. In the latest 1990-1991, US government was supporting rebellion within SPLA movement and withdrawn their support later after Nasir faction committed genocide in Bor.

Now US officials who want regime change so as their $11 billion spent in South Sudan is regained though the regime change while killing South Sudanese people, and it is not a problem. South Sudanese politicians divided over interests and allow external support to amount against citizens to get rid of president Kiir, and that is why rebellion becomes a process of the day for coming in and going out- unnecessary rebellions funded anyway.

Always when I watch on national and International TV, I see Nikki Haley behave like an ordinary citizen who has no an official assignment. Her bad behaviour leads to opprobrium remarks on South Sudan war affairs tearing the young nation down instead to help the young nation and restore peace back as best friend they said.  She is telling us impolite language who doesn’t care to be an Ambassador coming from Superpower nation that makes her act a shameful and that comes with telling lies about South Sudan.

I am not a friend to president Kiir, nor does he assigned me to his government, but I know issues of sovereignty. Nobody can just attempt to insult US government as she/he wants to talk or criticized with her weaknesses because there are norms that govern international laws.  Although Nikki Haley is officially assigned to the United Nations representing US government at international leagues of nations, Nikki becomes immediate attacker to President Kiir, South Sudan as a nation and her people.

She becomes a white rebel lady far away from New York than South Sudanese rebels in the bush at home. She is taking the lead as she was known for direct attacks to the head of state regardless of bilateral relations between the two states and who wants the regime change to happen in a wrong manner and support rebellion to take place several times in South Sudan despite consequences of war in the country.

Her defamatory remarks show her ill personality as a lady who is internationally disrespectfully, rude and vilifying. She acted discourteously and impolite which does not qualify her to be US diplomat. Insulting head of state as” unfit to rule” or unfit partner” is not a right solution for sure. Where may Nikki get the right partner apart from South Sudan government which she had insulted several times at the international conferences? Indeed, Nikki reveals their support as US government to South Sudan rebels and that is why rebellion never ends in the country.

I would like to ask Nikki to tell me the truth, If President Kiir unfit partner for peace or unfit to rule, why he was fitting during the time of peace from 2005 up to 2013? But because you people came in with wrong policies and divided the house of South Sudanese politicians, Kiir becomes unfit; it is an undue call for and exceedingly shameful remarks.

How does a man who sacrificed his entire life to liberate his people from the common enemy for more than four decades with his comrades become at last unfit? I want Kiir to be respected and appreciated for his job well done, and if South Sudanese want to remove him from power, it should be removed in a systematic and democratic manner. I know Kiir and others South Sudanese are to be called former presidents of South Sudan. If not democratic, peaceful transition of power is better.

Therefore, protest letter from the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation is not enough. This lady is so blinded by her Superpower nation credits. She needs a warning, and a sanction not to talk again on the affairs of Africa and particularly South Sudan. She is not the only Good Samaritan the world ever has; her voice about how to stop the war in South Sudan is violent; she is a greater rebel that covers her face with shields of United Nations and the USA.

South Sudan is looking for those who will support us to restore peace and save the lives of innocent South Sudanese. War does not end because those of Nikki are beating drum of war and also blowing trumpet of war indirectly at the same time. If America government doesn’t like Kiir to be in power, is it none of their business, their work is to support peace.

    She didn’t say he was unfit to rule, she said he was “NO LONGER fit to rule.”

    In what way is that rude or disrespectful? You just don’t like it because an American and a woman is telling you what time it is.

    She’s not calling for war, she’s calling for end to war by sanctioning or possibly removing a warmonger.

    My dear South Sudanese bro without name you view article out of point. I particular don’t want second Libya to happen in South Sudan where citizens are influenced and politicized against their leaders. I don’t want south Sudan to be turn a world centre for human slavery like Libya. War in south Sudan is not Kiir but it happened in his time. Minded masters planned war through your weak and power hungry South Sudanese politicians so that they benefit. Leaders come and go but country remained forevermore. John Garang yesterday, Kiir today and somebody tomorrow, that is the right process. Why do accepted Kiir to rule you time back and you don’t say he is already unfit until he crossed you to a called country South Sudan and you denial his unwavering contributions, then telling me is unfit. If you want to tell me economics crisis, and so forth, those are consequences of war and that’s why war is not a right choice to go alongside. The right choice, let work hard to bring peace and Kiir will leave for you the chair. If Kiir leave today, do you think the next coming president is South Sudanese angel? No,the same human being even worsening than Kiir.
