Tuesday, February 26, 2019 (PW) — With absolute respect of your capacity as a President of the country, I am writing to you this letter and I hope you will have a chance to read it or somebody to converse it to you. And as you plan to visit your home region Bahr el Ghazal, it is important to collect and solve all the pains that have been created by your various administrators who you have posted to govern the population.

The region is complaining here and there in your name and you are almost to be hated than being love as a son. Most of the complaints are about lack of development to the local population. There are no road connections in the larger parts of Bahr el Ghazal. But above all there are no life-serving services like health facilities and schools especially in the area of Lou Ariik County, my village.

And to make the things worst Mr. President, histories of certain areas are being tarnished, distorted and thrown away as rubbish by your field administrators who represent you to the community and business individuals who have wrongly got money in their hands while cheating your administration for a claim on the services delivery.

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 (PW) — This is a patriot’s open letter to the president, Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, of the Republic of South Sudan. Dear Mr. President, seeking appointment by our community or going through protocols will not deliver my urgent letter to you. I as a son of this nation on behalf of our community (Mabior-Yar community of Tonj State) with all honor beg you Mister President to go through my letter.

Your Excellency the president, please accept my sincere thanks for your great leadership derived from your great ideology and the durable purpose sandwiched with a patriotic vision and relentless courage. This good courage gave birth to the sustained resistance against acts of oppression, repression and forms of injustice in the then Southern Sudan during the liberation struggle.

Your Excellency the president, you launched a purposeful and protracted struggle to bring freedom to people of the South, which is South Sudan today. This set of wonderful qualities as God’s gifts in you included the patriotic spirit, the zeal and zest, and the perseverance measured by the innumerable sacrifices you encountered during the struggle. Thumb up my President! (more…)

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 (PW) — Love and lust are the dominant desires that rule the blood stream of man. They both connect you to the one you love and sometimes stained you and your relationship. But this is not the argument many lovers put forth. They always confess that, without love; there will be no life. Citing the creation of Adam by arguing that; it was because of love that Adam was created from dust and life was breathed unto his lung to acquire living and to see the beauty of the world.

Eve was also plug out from in between Adam’s ribs because almighty love Adam to own a wife though there are no women in Heaven. Don’t raise your eye brows yet, I have an argument for that claim. However; the lust goons argue their character and lase it with other sweet texture. They says, without lust; there will be no world. According to them; it was out of lust that God create the whole universe.

The disagreement from lovers is based on the fact that; if indeed God create the whole world out of lust, then; it is an evidence that lead to the gigantic flood of Noah and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. According to them, Love never turn to be destructives but lust does, as it result to the murder of Uriah by King David. Love and lust don’t turn destructives to mankind because there is a natural rule of law and justice system moderating their existence. (more…)

Pan-Africanism

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 (PW) — If my name is John and I speak English language so fluently and I put on English gentleman’s suit in the village and refuse to sit on my African traditional mat or skin then I am culturally invaded.

If I claim to have forgotten my mother tongue because of my 10 years in town, then I am culturally lost.

And again if I support all sport teams and clubs in foreign lands in the West, all against my African ones. If I can memorize dozens of western clubs and their players when I can’t know, how many clubs are in my country or could I remember one name of my national best players, then I am made to hate my values.

If I buy all sports clothes from the European teams and with faces of their players on. What is it that will show in me that I am an African? (more…)

Tuesday, February 26, 2017 (PW) —Another powerful intellect has gone!

The world has become so mean to the extent of swallowing human alive?

26th February 2019 will remain one of the days where my heart was choked by thorns of disbelief and acceptance.

I came to know Albino Deng Juach through his commentary writings in the Citizen Newspaper/This Day Newspaper, The Star-Tribune Newspaper and the Dawn Newspaper where we both contributed as column writers.

When I got the news of his death through the Dawn Newspaper issue 880 I was devastated and could not belief it had happened and for sure it has happened. (more…)
