Friday, September 21, 2018 (PW) — First, in recognition of the Khartoum Speedy Peace Agreement (KSPA) success, I would like to acknowledge H.E., the President Salva Kiir Mayardit for his courage in signing the peace agreement in Khartoum, Sudan—a place known for dishonesty. At the very start of the peace process in Khartoum, I was in disbelief and dismayed that we, the South Sudanese, who fought vigorously against Khartoum had to seek their help to gain stability for our country.

Isn’t that something? Definitely. This led me to ask the question, is this peace real?  Many of us are curious whether the peace signed by President Salva Kiir Mayardit and Dr. Riek Machar is genuine. The harrowing peace under The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) seemed to be designed for the continued long-suffering of the South Sudanese and has made this peace agreement signed in Khartoum extraneous.

The Authenticity of the peace is in its details, which gave South Sudanese leaders the confidence to sign, but concerned citizens have little faith in accepting and acknowledging peace coming from Khartoum as it may have an unworthy elements with facts yet to be unearthed or revealed fully. The peace comes with consequences the people don’t seem to understand, which has prompted many to ask questions about the integrity of the Sudanese government and their Khartoum Speedy Peace Agreement.

Friday, September 21, 2018 (PW) — South Sudan’s revitalized peace accord signed on September 12, 2018 in Addis Abba, Ethiopia has created a billion questions in the mind of the world and particularly of the South Sudanese, pondering what will come out of it.  What its fate is remains a lingering question in the mind!

In 2004, a year before the signing of 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in Naivasha, Kenya, there were Miraculous Signs for Peace in Sudan as published on the then Sudan Mirror Newspaper on the column of Humour written by this very author.

The signs were resurrecting fallen dry logs at Waligo and Liwolo areas of Kajo-Keji in Equatoria and their rare forest meeting at Gbari area in Eastern Kajo-Keji. Forests are symbolic in many cultures. Among the Aringa people of Uganda, there is a strong belief that one can only be confirmed a man after passing through seven thick forests. The seven thick forests symbolise ordeals, a man has to encounter to succeed in life.

‘’ For 14 years I lived without a family of blood relatives in the refugee camps of Pinyudu and Kakuma I learned that if you do not have a family, you must make a family in order to survive, in John Bul Dau film, God Grew Tired of us’’

Friday, September 21, 2018 (PW) — In several occasion the republic of Ethiopia is always a South Sudan case study. The South Sudanese like for Ethiopia in general can be summaries in different ways. Across several nations that border South Sudan the republic of Ethiopia carries the greatest interest of South Sudan not only in people relations but also in history that can be dated back to the African system of socialisms and in the horn of Africa.

When there was political instability in the Sudan and in South Sudan most of the Sudanese peace agreements were convened in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. Also in history the Ethiopian relations with South Sudanese in particular happened to be a better relations and therefore two Countries influence each other culturally. In different dimensions in the bible the Sudan and Ethiopia almost have similar descriptions simply because of Nile rivers and eventually the relations like no other in Africa, politically, economically and even socially.

Friday, September 21, 2018 (PW) — Lion, Leopard and Hyena in a cage is what I envision of country X(name withheld for security reasons), when every soul that was part of peace ‘harvesting’ settle in the aforementioned country.
