Monday, September 3, 2018 (PW) — In your minds, with able board of directors, functional departments: Marketing & Sales Managers, reasonable Human Resource Officers, do you, by any chance, try to fit the shoes of your customers?

Does this old adage ‘customer is a king’ exists in your two latest version of the dictionary? I mean, do you feel the pain that your customers are going through, even a little? If you don’t know, then here is why a tired customer is wailing.

It beats my understanding and someone else’s too, that you have no difference with any other fraudulent monopolise business. Your shoddy principles and your dully activities are killing us. (more…)

CEPO Fact Sheet on the Signed Khartoum Peace Agreement on the Revitalization of the 2015 ARCSS

Monday, 3 September, 2018 (PW) —  Last time, the parties to the violated 2015 Compromise Peace Agreement (CPA) were forced by the international community to append their signatures and implement the agreement in time to save the suffering people of South Sudan.

It’s a painful thing to be forced twice by external forces to do something you know one must do. Death, infrustructure destruction and human destitution, the three “Ds” brought about by war are nobody’s friends. War always without doubt brings human missery to the fore and halts progress for generations. That’s why it is wise to steer clear of it under any circumstances.

In our case, the quest for political power was central to the war that had caused tens of thousand lives and forced millions of people to seek refuge outside the country. Now that the external forces have once again forged the Revitalised peace agreement signed by the belligerents, the focus now turns on its implementation. (more…)

Sunday September 2, 2018 (PW)- The family of late Ustaz Donato Deng Mayen Amet held the annual memorial prayer service in Denver-Colorado on September 1st. For the occasion, I made this brief outline of the professional and eventful life of my principled husband, Deng Mayen Amet. I know he is in a good place now because he was a good man who served his people diligently and with all his heart.

  • Born in Gogrial State, Lukluk Payam around 1938.
  • He started school at Kwajok Boys Elementary School then went to Bussere Intermediate School then to Rumbek Secondary School. He later joined University of Khartoum where he studied BA Education.
  • In 1964 Ustaz Dengdit was appointed a teacher at Rumbek Secondary School which was the only secondary school in South Sudan. In Rumbek he taught many students who later became great civil servants and politicians in the country, most notable of whom was the founding father of our republic, great Dr. John Ganarng de Mabior.
  • In 1965 after the war intensified in South Sudan Ustaz Dengdit was imprisoned in Rumbek by the Sudan government because of his criticism of Khartoum oppression through community as-well-as teacher-student agitation, some of which was contained in his weekly high school newspaper titled “The Vision” which was pinned on a board in the school yard and where students were encouraged to participate. After his release from prison he went to Khartoum and worked as a teacher in Omdurman Secondary School. (more…)
