John Garang’s prophecy

The Late SPLM/A Leader, Dr. John Garang de Mabioor Atem Aruai.

Dr. John Garang de Mabior, Co-Founder of SPLM/A

Nationalists, Patriots, Comrades, Fellow Countrymen:

“We are not anybody’s burden; we are masters in our own house. We are confident in ourselves and of the future. There are those who might entertain the false beliefs that we cannot govern ourselves, we should not and cannot let their thoughts patterns influence us. Let us collectively go down in the history as the generation of South Sudanese that turned Sudan around by putting an end to discrimination, racism, inequality, division, exploitation, and marginalization at best, and slavery and causal murder at worst. Let us unite against ethnic, religious, and racial divides to restore personal dignity for all. Let us move from total economic dormancy to total vibrancy; from relegation and resignation to a cycle of poverty, destitution and misery to activism, hope, and excitement.

Let us reject being mere spectators in life, to becoming masters of our own destiny. A Bishop friend of mine yesterday told me a joke that three people went to see God, and the Almighty asked them what what they wanted. One of them said he wanted wisdom, the second said he wanted riches, and the third, a Southern Sudanese, said he was just accompanying the two. You will guess who wanted wisdom and who wanted riches, but what i wanted to tell Southerners is to stop accompanying others and be masters of their own destiny; i say the same for all Sudanese and for all people of Africa.
