March 22, 2018 (SSB) — South Sudanese audible gadgets are readily connected into the cracking wall of inquiry in an effort to take notice of what happened and what will happen to the Third Phase of HLRF peace talk.

With many wondering whether the talk is going to be resumed in the same city of Addis Ababa the Amharic word for new flower or could the deep silence leads to the formation of new house roof is the puzzle kit that has been left on the doorway of every South Sudanese.

Our living God has given us all the instructions on how we can go on with our earthly stay; the creator instructed mankind in the books of Mathew 7:7”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you’’ and in Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Those fatherly directives are what children of South Sudan must turn to, in order to change the pitiless face of suffering, all must turn to God for forgiveness, all forms of corruptions such as, abuse of public offices, gossiping, fornication, adultery, thievery, witch hunting, bribery, cheating, forgery, and killing are punishable according to social norms mandated to us by our Lord.

During the second phase of the talk people were on the tighten mode of notching the peace nuts with geared up options of either to disown or give their leaders second chance but unfortunately, that talk brings in the tiny and greenish fruit of vitaminazation.

Hence, leading to the extension of harvesting period for another three weeks to pave way for farmers’ consultations among their suppliers and buyers, many weeks later nothing has been heard from the dinghy rowers.

While South Sudanese have their attention and waiting for the calling voices from the serenity igloo, our old farming tools should not be thrown into the deepest part of the death pit, while waiting for an elephant’s carcass we must head on with the goat head that we have in our kitchen, our National Dialogue and local peace initiative are paramount.

According to Wikipedia Peace is the concept of harmony and the absence of hostility. In a behavioral sense, peace is generally understood to be a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence between heterogeneous social groups.

Throughout history, benevolent leaders have often exhibited a certain type of behavioral or political restraint, which in turn has often resulted in the establishment of regional peace or economic growth through various forms of agreements or peace treaties. Such behavioral restraint has often resulted in the de-escalation of conflicts, or in multilateral or bilateral peace talks.

The avoidance of war or violent hostility is often the result of compromise and is often initiated with thoughtful active listening and communication, which may tend to enable a greater genuine mutual understanding.

In a psychological sense, peace is perhaps less well defined but at least of an equal value to, or of a greater value than, “behavioral peace.” Peaceful behavior has often been found to have been the result of a certain type of a “peaceful inner disposition”.

Some have expressed the belief that peace is a certain quality of inner tranquility which does not depend upon the uncertainties of daily life for its existence. The acquisition of such a “peaceful internal disposition” would seem to possibly be a valuable asset, capable of assisting in the resolution of otherwise seemingly irreconcilable competing interests.

The word peace has been within our milieu for quite long as seen in the Arabic greetings of Salaam Alekhum and Alekhum Salaam, it is also used as a farewell, for example, Salaam Alek.

According to Researcher Jacqueline H. Wilson who is a senior program officer in USIP’s Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding, local peace processes through an architecture that begins with conflict analysis entails a common vision and focuses on achieving specific objectives.

Also essential to the success of the process is including the right people—those with authority, with knowledge of the problems requiring resolution, and with a vested interest in sustainable solutions.

National Dialogue is a process that includes dialogue consultations, conference negotiations, and implementation.  Unlike a peace treaty, it allows the governed to negotiate and determine goals. In addition, with National Dialogue, we can redefine our national unity for ourselves. We can redefine what being South Sudanese means. On that basis, we can also create a new constitution that reflects the values of all of us.

Every citizen has the chance to join in the dialogue. Through grassroots forums, civil society organizations meetings, and the National Dialogue media programs, citizens can create and recommend answers to their problems.

 The National Dialogue that we currently have is a comprehensive assignment opens to everyone to share his/her grievances with openness follow by own suggested solutions to the said grievances, we South Sudanese own the National Dialogue without exception, we have to accommodate it on the nourishing wall of our hearts. It is a chance for all of us to define and shape the future of our country.

Give chance to social welfare and Development.
