March 29, 2018 (SSB) — Since the creation of Gok State on 2 October 2015, I have written a lot about it. I have written on both good and bad things, praises and attacks on some of the authorities. Despite others and my efforts to fight for change that may benefit the people, things appear not to be moving towards right directions as the state keeps on fluctuating between progress and digression.

The problem that keeps Gok State at the same level or even at the worse level is the fact that the authorities have become enemies to the truth. This automatic means that were darkness is valued over light, the evil flourishes undercover.  This is because, in a situation where the people who talk against evil are viewed as enemies, it is not easy to bring the change in the society as truth is the first causality.

Lakes state Youth in Kenya

Lakes State Youth Consultative Council in Kenya

March 29, 2018 (SSB) — Power and leadership what do they represent in the leadership development? In part one we have discussed youth leadership and why it is referred to young people as leaders of tomorrow? In part two, we have discussed identifying youth leaders by those who are already in leadership and prepared them for future leadership.

And in part three, we also discussed the definition of leaders, and leadership as an opportunity and how to develop young leaders into that leadership, but in part four, we are going to discuss power and leadership on how young leaders are brought up by authorities in power.

For us as South Sudanese youths, what does power means and to those who can develop youths?  In worldwide today, the word ‘power ‘is defined in many dimensions. In an organizational behavior management, the word ‘power’ is called and used as a ‘management power’ which is used more than the use of force. It is an influencing other to TRULY WANT to achieve a goal. A planned power simply forces others to achieve a goal.

March 29, 2018 (SSB) — Thank you brother Michael Koma for your kind compliments. We appreciate your acknowledgment of the services we offer to our needy people especially the sick for which we have been trained. The Administration is grateful to the Dawn newspaper for advertising how we render the medical services.

We didn’t just choose to treat people out kindness. It is our noble profession with rules governing us in how we carry out our medical duties.

Medical ethics and Hippocratic Oath provide that practicing medicine is first and foremost about saving lives. The money comes second. Sick people deserve to be treated without fear or favour. That is what the Hai Mawuna Medical team is trying to do. The Administration of Mawuna Medical Complex understands and knows the current imposed economic hardships the people face.

28 governors swearing in ceremony in Juba

The swearing-in ceremony of 28 governors in Juba, South Sudan, 29 Dec 2015

March 29, 2018 (SSB) — It has come to my attention on several notices that this is the third time in third reshuffling in the cabinet of governor Madhang Majok Men he is giving the information seat to people of Abiriu County. Any honest person would wonder about his recycling mechanism whether it’s difficult in other eight counties for our able governor to find someone who can perfect this job rather than those of Abiriu community beats my understanding. Or is it just a move aimed at draining of his recent dug lagoons, protecting and maintaining his political vapor off from exposure to the public or is it either dwsmisat designed for this particular county in his regime I still cannot figure out the substance in it.

Ministry for information is one of the finest branch of any cabinet which is the headquarters of government secrecy and media affiliation that is not bad for this county to be honored with it trusted productive management but is rather not healthy politically to switched the seat between people of the same county for it might be posed a huge conspiracy and wrangles between them. I’m writing about it because the government seems to be lacking strategies in the formation of the cabinet.

March 29, 2018 (SSB) — Pain is a distressing feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli. The International Association for the study of Pain’s widely used definition defines pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” however; due to it being a complex, subjective phenomenon, defining pain has been a challenge. In medical diagnosis, pain is regarded as a symptom of an underlying condition.

Pain motivates the individual to withdraw from damaging situations, to protect a damaged body part while it heals, and to avoid similar experiences in the future. Most pain resolves once the noxious stimulus is removed and the body has healed, but it may persist despite the removal of the stimulus and apparent healing of the body. Sometimes pain arises in the absence of any detectable stimulus, damage or disease.
