The Hyped May 16th Uprising in South Sudan is a Hoax, Forget It

Friday, May 10, 2019 (PW) —- I’m not here to condemn or disregard political views of the architectures of what clearly looks like another dishonest attempt to mock the government of President Salva Kiir Mayardit. To pitch a shot at the thin lines between possibilities and impossibilities, I do expect a degree of skepticism and disagreement from the uprising planners with me on this matter but nonetheless, I’m obliged as a fellow citizen to zoom in with my two cents on the realities. An uprising is a coup, either violent or none-violent. So, take it with a grind of salt if necessary. 

Folks, let’s agree to disagree. I agree, our nation is crying for peace. I agree problems are weighing heavier than solutions. Many are poorer, destitute and desperately surviving than living. Our sailors seemed tired and our boat is trembling, trying to weather the storms. I agree we need change either in form or shape. But any desperate, ill motivated approach borrowed from somewhere just because it worked there, and use it as a “quick fix” to such a complex and complicated political problems will only unprecedentedly plunge the country into further anarchy and chaos.

Friday, May 10, 2019 (PW) — Former President of Uganda, Idi Amin Dada was called ruthless dictator but he had a lot to be admired. I would like to borrow his statement to relate it to South Sudanese madness on social media and other media outlets. It has been observed that African especially South Sudanese are always taking thinks excessively; they always overdo everything. They don’t analyse the disadvantage(s) of excess of everything.

You can easily testify to this fact through the way some people subscribe to tribalism; the way they subscribe to European football fanning and the way they subscribe to politico-gossiping business. They are also taking excessively the alcohol (Makoyo) even young men in the cattle camps; many fall in love dearly with (Shisha smoking) without age limit.

Therefore, in the light of the foregoing title, social media, print media and broadcasting media are highly abused in South Sudan. Some people created pseudo names and accounts on Facebook and other social media forums to attack other people and caused confusion for no reason. Our people need prayers to understand the limit of all the rights enshrined in the Transitional constitution, 2011 as amended and other laws in force.
