February 23, 2018 (SSB) — Dear President Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar, Thank you for your services to the people of South Sudan. I understand you have the heart to make South Sudan a peaceful country. Unfortunately, it is now four years since the war broke out in December 2013, and the nation has continued to bleed with millions displaced and thousands perished. Four years have passed, four years of war and peace talks without durable solution.

I am not going to talk about why the peace talks failed, but there is no doubt that you are using a wrong formula to bring peace to South Sudan. I am not here to blame you , but I am asking you one thing: please do us a favor in the next second round of peace talks. I highly recommend that the two of you (Kiir and Riek) should be excluded in the government of transitional national unity, and I call upon the people of South Sudan to take a bold step in restoring peace.

The two of you have created a man-made disaster in which you have no capacity of resolving. Many South Sudanese wish and pray for you to reach a tangible peace agreement every time you go to Addis Ababa for the peace talks, but their dream seems far from reality. This month, your delegations were in Addis Ababa for the peace talks and the formula still did not work. I heard the peace talks would resume again in two weeks, however, like the 2015 agreement, it is most likely that this agreement will also be broken in broad daylight.

Across the world leaders aspire to serve people and make lives better; unfortunately, millions of people face death, hunger and starvation under your leadership. Your leadership has turned tribe against tribe and that is not acceptable in modern society. I understand you are not the only problem, since it is the masses that have failed to be critical of your political agenda that uses divide and rule. The citizens who accept to be divided and turn against each other mercilessly also share in the responsibility.

It is not too late to bring forward a lasting solution. I ask you to go deep into your heart and to think about making the next generation of South Sudan proud. Simply excuse yourself from power and give the chance to others to try their best. Leaders give their best to the nation and they excuse themselves when they fail to deliver the best.

Please sign this petition letter if you support this initiative. Share it with President Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar.
