Oil in South Sudan Theory is Life
By Stephen Owet
This a theory to let the Government of South Sudan aware that oil in South Sudan is not a curse but rather a gift to pave the way toward prosperity and for South Sudaneses and South Sudan to catch up with today’s modern development quickly.
In short, modern development is not a forceful mean of changing people or other countries’ lifestyles or culturals and traditions to think of the past as nothing quickly as possible. It is rather being defines as the way individuals do things for themselves and their country step by step without disturbances from any outsider or others, but not a short cut to rape off other countries, cultures or traditions and governments out of their wills or not to try to force people to do thing as immediate as possible and it is not even an event to undertake or put people within a country at war or it is not to loot oil while war is taking place in a country. That is not what modern development is. Now, think of the development or production of oil and what it means to South Sudan and South Sudaneses. Think, think! What does oil mean to you and why are South Sudaneses being evilly eyeballed because of the oil in South Sudan. Even those who have once been good friends of Southern Sudan before independent of the Republic of South Sudan in 2011 have started to follow those who have been judging South Sudan and South Sudaneses as enemy because of the oil discovery in South Sudan. Now, think!
When we take a close look at the oil, it is better not defined as just crude, petroleum, gas, benzene, fuel for vehicles, gas as in house or industrial gas as some sorts of heat to heat up room buildings and cities during the cold seasons, but mostly in winter. In other word, some optimists but naives could rather put the oil as a means of money and power, but we have come to notice that oil is not just about something to do with money, power or energy as described by some pessimists who do not want others to know why South Sudan and why rallying behind bosses with big weapons while people are being massacred in the name of oil. Here, we are not trying to tell about cooking oil or thing like sunscreen oils or oil for hairs or lotion. The oil we try to brief is massive mean of petroleum by-products or crude oil which natural gas, gasoline, methane, etc are produced from. Oil is a life for any nation that has categorized itself as “West” and it runs deep, deep and deep from generation to generation in Western worlds. Without out oil, West and some other countries would fate away in just a couple of years ahead and their homes and towns would only be lived by ghosts without any human factors or man-made disaster involved – that is why Western Nations are fighting any country with oil globally. Now, hesitate to question this theory on why USA and some NATO countries are fighting some oil-rich nations in Middle East and Africa such as in Democratic Republic of Congolese (DR. Congo), Central Africa Republic (CAR), or Libya and now South Sudan, but for the rest of the World, it is a different look at South Sudan.
World views at the oil as source of life because they have waken up earlier and learnt that without oil some countries in the cold Hemispheres such as Western Nations would be ghost worlds, and industrials, towns, buildings and houses would be abandoned if they (Western nations) don’t fight to get and store as much oil before the developing country like South Sudan comes to understand that oil is life now a day. Despite life, South Sudan looks at the oil as a mean of income and revenue for the countries and as per se calculation of oil revenue in South Sudan is way enough to feed, develop, buy and manipulate or alienate foreign powers for the benefit of South Sudaneses. Watch!
Before the late Dr. Garang de Mabior, the late father and the leader of the SPLA/M, oil was a source of life according to his mind and it was once his other secretes which he did not share with some of his colleagues in the movement before his departure for rest. anyone who has no understanding about oil as source of life today – (though late Dr. Garang did not share his own theory about oil with them, who stuck with the SPLM leadership) and the one who looks at the oil as just oil – (some within the agents and agency-to-be for the government in South Sudan) always aims and accepts bribes from foreign nations to destroy or disturb life of civilians in Southern Sudan. Others with limited understand to what oil is all about or what oil can do and what oil means always try to create a looting routes or vacuums for those dishonest surveyors who come from the oil-greedy-nations to do some oil wells illegal-surveys and for them to have a genuine information about where the oil is located in the Republic of South Sudan while the war which they have been creating against South Sudaneses is taking places.
For South Sudan, oil is now life and to take that life they, greedy foreigners and their companies usually end up killing South Sudaneses by bribing eager militia leaders or some South Sudanese leaders to create some sort of conflicts as military interventions to panic civilians to think of leaving their homes in South Sudan. But those leaders and their militias don’t know that oil is life now a day. Despite the Republic of South Sudan being the newest county in Africa and World, some major powers and other minors look at South Sudan as steak in a plate because of oil, and if South Sudan or South Sudanese’ government becomes resistant or ever dares to resist or provoke the demands from those oil-greedy major countries, they take another look at South Sudan and South Sudaneses at home and abroad as beef running on its feet, and without steak, the riches who cannot live without steak on their plates cannot win life; they would perish in cold before they reach their next ten decades. Don’t go uh; it is a theory and perfect discovery! These are the countries which are playing tough games against South Sudan and South Sudaneses behind closed doors. Just take a good look at the way Russia and Pro-Russia handle Western Nations and G7 nations when it comes to natural resource issues and mostly oil, the energy which is now the source of life. You would be amazed what a capable nation like Russia handle those who nations who have guts to rape Russians off their resources. Won’t you? Another example is Cuba, the nation that has survived beside the giant, the United States of America, USA which has once positioned itself as the toughest country against Cuba’s independent. Will brief this later.
Would you rather see world going to war because of Russia being resistant or would you rather see the world going to war because of South Sudan refusing to be looted? For the sake of the majors fearing majors, World will not go to war because of Russia being resistant. Russia and Pro-Russian have their own mission to rule the world for another term and Russia being Russia and Russia being resistant because of oil, it is like a call for World War III, but no country needs the world to go to war any time. Russia wins often. Any country that always looks at Russia as an intimidator to their life because of oil, such a country will always back down herself/himself just by looking into the future and what World War III would cause if it is launched and by avoiding military offensive against Russia for a diplomatic efforts as a solution to calm down the Government of Russia. For Russia being super in its governing fields among this metropolitan societies of today, it will always negate another decision that is made by others – do not know how many but that is how Russia plays. Avoid World War III by avoiding attack on Russia as a group or single. Well, unlike South Sudan and South Sudanese’s government, there is another way of playing and winning the oil war globally.
As South Sudan or South Sudanese’s government, the only way to keep on playing this brutal and none stopping oil wars is to alliance with major countries who are closest or some how close enough to South Sudan just or in cast some greediest and major countries attempt to engulf South Sudan with its natural resources. There is a best way to win the oil war in this changed, and fast growing modernized world of today. South Sudan can and will always win the oil war for South Sudaneses. This may be by siding with country like United Kingdoms, United States of America, China, Pakistan, India, Japan, South Korea, Germany, France, or Ukraine, but that could just be a ruin to South Sudan and South Sudanese’s economy because the rest of the world have already learnt from those countries that those nations’ governments are only working for the people of theirs. They don’t steal from their people or their governments but they are confirmed to steal or loot from any weak (in term military) but rich (in term of natural resources) country. Once a small country that is natural-resources-rich becomes friend with a country like United States of America’s government or with any nation that shares the same interest with United States of America, U.S.A., that small always become no longer a nation of its own, but part of U.S.A.’s states. Best Example: Saudi Arabia.
Speaking of Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia’s government has once contributed to the destruction of Southern Sudanese life before the independent of the Republic of South Sudan and right after Saudi boosted relationship with United States’ government between the years 1991 to 2001. Though U.S.A. was looked by the world as a best justified nation that sees every country as innocent and independent of it own as it can be, technically, U.S.A.’s government has aided the former Sudanese government to murder Southern Sudaneses by using Saudi Arabia’s government as a base and means of financially funding former Sudanese Army/government to launch and test former Sudanese Rebel, the SPLA’s capability between ‘80s’ and 2000s’ and before year 2005. Saudi Arabia has been used by the USA’s government to fund and freeze Southern Sudanese’s economy and delay the independent of South Sudan.
This gets worsen for Southern Sudaneses every time “Democrat” Party in U.S.A wins election, but with “Republican” Party in U.S.A., Southern Sudaneses are always fine. No matter what corner in the world Southern Sudaneses live – if Republican Party in USA wins election, Southern Sudaneses are always fine at home and abroad. For quick instance review, you may recall the pain Southern Sudaneses have experienced when “Bill Clinton” was in the top presidential seat of United States of America, and now South Sudaneses are genuinely feeling twice the pain from President Barack Obama’s terms in the office because President Barack Obama is running as “Democrat,” and Democrat is not and will never be a political or any diplomatic solution for South Sudan and Africa’s economy as whole because Democrat is running after oil in South Sudan and as well as after every small but natural-resources-rich nation’s oil across the globe. The oil game which United States of America is playing is not that bad and cannot sanction big countries but it will always hurt small countries.
It is not okay to alliance with USA as whole but for the sake of South Sudaneses’ interest, “Republican” party in USA has always been working hand-in-hand with southern Sudaneses for the interests of life and advancing development to boom among southern Sudaneses in Southern Sudan and abroad and across the globe – even before the independent of the Republic of South Sudan. Reading this does not mean “Republican” party of USA is favourited by South Sudaneses because as a Republican in USA, “Christianity” comes first in the back of Christian-Americans and because majority of South Sudaneses are Christians, Republican party in USA always favourite South Sudan to be an independent, peaceful, prospering and justified nation just as other Christians based countries are brought up. Well, if that is the reason why South Sudaneses like conservative-Americans to lead USA so that South Sudan would never be rape off of its oil and natural resources, let it be. Best leader which southern Sudaneses have come to know when it comes to helping South Sudaneses to develop their homeland South Sudan is “George W. Bush,” before Democrat-lead government of President Barack Obama come to office in USA. He, George W. Bush has worked with former SPLM leader, late Dr. Garang de Mabior and South Sudanese President Salva Kiir.
Since his election as the President of United States of America, George. W. Bush and Condolissa Rice have played a major role to helped Southern Sudaneses and make South Sudan and the former Autonomous Government of Southern Sudan fixed. Now, Southern Sudan is Republic of South Sudan and the Autonomous Government of South Sudan is Government of South Sudan permanently. And even Dr. Riek Machar has agreed to keep South Sudan and South Sudaneses under on umbrella of SPLM for the sake of the united Republic of South Sudan. From then, no political or military turmoil has every erupted southern Sudaneses to the point where South Sudaneses has to kill themselves and divided themselves ethnically or tribe by tribe and/or divided south Sudanese army to who or what to destroy.
Conservative-Americans in USA understands too that there are things that people can change and those changes are not to be done by forces of any kind, but leave them for the nature to take its tolls, and there are things that people cannot change at all and if humans try to change things by forces, they are creating chaos for the entire population or country. They too, do believe that oil in South Sudan is not a curse and since it is located in South Sudan, it is belong to South Sudaneses.
The alert of theory is to make this a wake up call that oil in South Sudan is not a curse and this argument too has once let former South Sudanese Secretary General Pa’gan Amum Okiech and his other eleven top SPLM politicians to prison in late year 2013 and it was all because of the Obama’s American-lead government ideologies which has actually emerged from the American’s liberal-lead government – to try to a forcefully change South Sudaneses and South Sudan’s definition and as whole and as well as the SPLA/M vision because of oil in South Sudan. Obama’s liberal-lead government is the one who arrested twelve top SPLM politicians and which has led South Sudanese ex-Vice President Riek Machar to accept accountability from the opposition-lead army in South Sudan against South Sudan Army, SPLA. Because SPLM vision was going to be diverged by the ideologies of the American liberal-lead government for oil in South Sudan through South Sudan President Salva Kiir Miyardit, ideal South Sudanese SPLM politicians refused to sale South Sudan and accepted prison rather than betraying SPLM vision and South Sudaneses’ interests.
Once Obama’s lead-liberal-American government learnt that they have made a mistake by trying to change South Sudan and South Sudaneses through forceful means by ruining SPLM vision, the same American government of President Barack Obama’s lead-liberal government sent the United States America’s Secretary John Kerry to come and advised South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Miyardit that they, American government agents and agencies of American President Barack Obama have made a mistake. Therefore, release the former arrested SPLM politicians and President Kiir did, he did release them SPLM politicians as a mean to stop war that was started in January 2014. Despite conservative or liberal viewing South Sudan and South Sudaneses differently because of the oil in South Sudan, South Sudan and South Sudaneses side with whoever cannot and will not axe and/or will not and cannot starve South Sudan and South Sudaneses at behind the back or in behind a closed doors.
Directly or indirectly, Australia could play the best alliance but it is far away from South Sudan and South Sudan could be knifed at night while Australian government is trying to fly her/his fighter jets to try to rescue South Sudan. Therefore, Russia is well advanced and Russia could be the best bet because Russian government does not wrestle with republican-lead government in USA even if there is a failed leadership or aborted business collaboration between South Sudanese government and other nations which are alliance with United States of America. America is far and the best part of it is that American government has been starving South Sudan at behind the closed doors by using foreign countries’ militaries. Example: In 2013 political and military warfare among South Sudanese government agents took place between the months of December 2013 and now, Ugandan army and Ugandan air force have been used by the American government of Barack Obama’s lead-Democrat to target and attack South Sudaneses even though it was not American war or Uganda’s war.
Joint USA – Uganda Air Force and Uganda Army have been attacking South Sudan and now, foreign armies have invaded South Sudan’s oil production regions of Bentiu, oil wells in Jonglei and in Upper Nile of South Sudan and Dr. Riek Machar have been very slightly argumentative about those types of invasions. As a oil greedy nations’ armies, fired army force could be the only mean of controlling South Sudan and South Sudanese Resources by South Sudaneses themselves because foreigners and their armies have failed to listen by dishonoring South Sudaneses on their land. From this point, South Sudan has come to understand that oil is life though it used to be a mean of income and revenue.
If South Sudan learns – which implies that South Sudan has learnt to put a dog colour eye glasses in his/her eyes and look at all oil invaders as one enemy of South Sudan despite their colours of skins or missions, South Sudan will and will win any oil war. 1). Because of oil as life, South Sudan can survive any threat like Cuba that lives next to the former major enemy of his/her and the World’s assumed rated number #1 very super power country, the United States of America (USA). Be it nuclear or atomic bomb, South Sudaneses can survive in it; few will go because of the sacrifices which are made for freedom, and most of South Sudaneses will live and ripe the benefits of freedom just like Cuba after. 2). Because of oil being a life, nobody needs to tell who to leave where and when. As South Sudaneses, you do not need to respect any invaders in your homeland; be he/she black or white folk.
Dress your eyes in dog colours so you can judge them, invaders alike. South Sudan is about to become everybody’s turf because of oil and it is up to South Sudanese warriors to make South Sudan a home for South Sudaneses and South Sudaneses’ generation to come. Dog colour is a good judgment! As it was once quoted by Nguendeng and Deng and phrase by Nyikango before, “the mightiest who does not respect boundaries shall fall, and the majors who respect boundaries will live.” Collaboration is what it takes.
Collaboration, collaboration! In business, there is always exchange, follow of money, resources, commodities, exchange of power, cons and pros, etc. But if any of the one freezes (for example commodities froze), exchange of power always gets it way into business as a mean of control, corruption or thefts and to prevent lawsuits by creating war or fighting against the country or against the one who was cheated by the super power who cheated. As in cast of South Sudanese government, a lot of cheating was involved and those cheating have almost made South Sudan to collapse and fall in the hand of foreigners. This means let’s put it this way, what country would and have once sanctioned the Republic of South Sudan from owning or leasing Fighter Jet Aircrafts and Anti-missiles, missiles, modern Anti-Tank and modern Anti-Aircraft weapons as a mean to secure South Sudan’s air space and to protect civilians from being bombarded by any enemy or foreign aircrafts in South Sudan?
Well, there have been quite a few and as you all know, USA’s Democrat-lead government, Ugandan government, Saudi Arabia’s government, and five other capitals have objected South Sudan to own means powerful security system in place to protect South Sudaneses. Those nations who have said no for South Sudan to own major defense systems have been the countries which have yearned to find the way to break into South Sudan’s security and create war and they did. Those nations understand that South Sudan being rich with natural resources like oil, and to them, oil is life; they put South Sudan on hold to open rooms for violence and routes to steal oil revenues from the hands of the South Sudanese government agents and agencies that have been taking care of South Sudan and South Sudaneses. 3). Because of oil, South Sudan has now become another place of scramble for energy for life just as Africa used to be to Europe.
When looking at the big picture, most of South Sudaneses who are suffering in South Sudan and abroad, are South Sudaneses whom original hometowns and houses has been build on or close to the oil fields before the wells were dug or drilled and it has been a policies designed by those who have agendas to kill South Sudaneses slowly because of oil and take South Sudaneses’ oil after they, South Sudaneses are dead. This has been a policy, and only a blind person cannot see it or anyone who cannot feel cannot feel that political pain abroad and at home in South Sudan and it is all because of oil. Now oil is life for South Sudanese just as the lat Dr. Garang de Mobior had noticed, and oil being life, it is for sell and to feed and develop South Sudan and South Sudaneses; oil in South Sudan is not for sharing.
Oil in South Sudan is not a curse and the oil in South Sudan is not a woman to be shared. Oil in South Sudan is for South Sudaneses to sell, and it is for South Sudaneses to do what they need to do with oil revenues or incomes in South Sudan. It is not up to the foreigners to make a decision on what to do about oil in South Sudan because none of any South Sudaneses have ever been allowed or invited to share any foreign oil incomes or foreign oil revenues before the oil was discovered in Southern Sudan. Relatives have been suffering because they are being threatened by the oil-greedy-nations at home and abroad. Relatives’ life was taken away from them because of oil, but oil can also buy away the life of individuals, firms, or countries who took life away from relatives of South Sudaneses. This is not a “call before you dig” here; it is a theory and it is an attempt to count who lost her/his life since the independent of the Republic of South Sudan since July 2011. The reasons why South Sudanese government is looking toward Russia and Pro-Russia nations as a mean to do trade in oil business in South Sudan is just as late Dr. Garang de Mabior would have wanted.
Well, the difference between Russia and other none Russia is simple, correct and honesty way of doing business with friends without cheating and without starving friends in business in the in back or behind closed doors. Russia like China does not cheat in businesses or any government type businesses. If Russian government ever signs any business relating government affairs with foreign nations, as a government, Russia always avoid conflict to keep friendship strong even if they look at a nation which they are doing business with as one of the small countries that can be rape off easily. With United States of America or any country that shares the interest with U.S.A., that is a different look when oil business involves.
As for United States of America’s government, doing business involves cheating and destroying the smalls after advantages has been taken from the smalls, it is like gambling in unlawful clubs where guns and big guys rules, no matter whose right it is for USA, but mostly Democrat-lead-government in America has a sentiment to play dirty games against South Sudan often; any Pro-USA’s Democrat-lead government has also adapted the same system because they always weighing war as a group like gangs against one nation which they America and pro-America governments have interests to rape off any small nation because of oil. Now, when was the last time anyone has heard and seen U.S.A.’s government went to war without any of the NATO or G7 countries accompanying USA to war? Never; USA never go war a lone to rape off foreign oil. And for a respect point of view, neither USA, NATO nor G7 nations takes laws and orders or listen to UN, the United Nations’ leadership. Another example: If Russia signs an agreement that he/she, as a government of Russia has to give a country which does business with him/her in exchange of that country’s commodity, Russian government never and can never fail his/her business friends and as for oil business in South Sudan, Russia or Russia alliance nations are good as late Dr. Garang de Mobior would have wanted.
As for South Sudaneses and their oil, South Sudaneses look at oil as income and revenues, but after that, they have learnt that they are being killed of oil, and some have lost relatives and quite handful of them, South Sudaneses have immigrated so far away countries and across oceans. South Sudaneses have learnt that oil is life. Despite oil being a life, war and restless lifestyle which some South Sudaneses had attempted to leave behind, there are firms of oil businesses and individuals with or countries-which do not need South Sudan to be a peaceful country. They still view South Sudaneses like oil on walking on it feet and that look itself can amaze human being – when someones or firms look at you as if they are looking at oil itself. It is not a normal look especially when somebody says he/she is a South Sudanese, they look at him/her as if he/she is carrying oil in his/her body!
The more South Sudaneses are being view as oil, the more South Sudaneses learn that oil is life and it being a life, it is for sell but not a shield to be used as a tool for destroying other countries’ life or people as many nations who are about to run out of natural gas, fuel or energy have done to South Sudan and South Sudaneses so far and behind the closed doors. Until then, it had never come to south Sudaneses’ practices that time has come to play too. Put those who have aided your enemies and let you flee the place of your birth as a refugee for other countries into the judgment point of view with a dog colour-eye-glassese in your eyes and lion shoes on your feet, with an elephant ears on your head, and live like an amphibian and fly out of water like a bird into the sky and fight for your oil because South Sudan and South Sudaneses are now depending on it, oil.
Invaders are about to trick South Sudaneses because of oil being a life. Thinking of oil being a life means enough discoveries because in the past, thoughts used to be devoted on food as a source of life and then water but then global communities started to fight over water resources too. Water does not finish and world stopped scrambling over water resources. Then, they have discovered that in order to live a better life and happy you have to have enough money to hire people to grow crops – develop farms and/or build things to protect and make you free and strong enough for life in your territory, but as the world grew older, power, but life is now switched to oil.
Oil has become the source of life where by a massive means of wealth or money are generated from and this huge money is one that can be used to buy things, employ individuals, buy companies or feed countries or buy enough food and security, build things for countries, companies or individual, to be able to buy any massive means of military offensive to control any strong enemy of individuals, companies, or countries, to be able to live free of threats in the air, on the ground, etc… and the list goes on. As South Sudan, it is time to buy, rent and lease as many food, weapons such as fighter jet aircrafts, gunship, anti-missiles/anti-tanks/anti-aircrafts, missiles, tanks, plus military, ammunitions, weight war and pay your strongest friend to destroy your strongest enemy and for you being South Sudan, the super rich. Oil can destroy or make your enemy wait outside your territory just by putting protective mechanisms in place. Another example is that enemies’ life can be taken away by using oil and life or friends’ life can be protected by using oil.
As for South Sudan, play and put no boundaries between you and your enemy; you can penetrate into any security system of any country (major or minor who once assisted your enemies to kill your people) by using oil and because at the end of the year 2150, most of the oil-greedy-nations who have once immorally eyeballed South Sudan will run out of fuels such as natural gas, gasoline and any petroleum products. Play South Sudan! If you can swim in oil, you can rule the sky and make oceans to be your bed, and land, your bench. South Sudan owns oil and because others consider oil a life, South Sudan own life. Go South Sudan Go!
For a brief in this theory, some African leaders have made some mistakes against South Sudanese and those mistakes were made because of oil inside South Sudan. Instead of giving the government of South Sudan a room to breath, some African leaders have pushed the envelops against South Sudanese by force to President Salva Kiir and his government so he, President Salva Kiir can panic and go off the security bridge about South Sudanese Safety. It is those African leaders that have let Salva Kiir to misinterpret the genuine SPLM vision. First, Salva Kiir with his eyes blindfolded by the oil money and African leaders, he has forgotten that he was once the most reliable officer among security officers in the SPLA/M leadership in ‘80’s and until he became the leader of the SPLM after the late father of the SPLA/M Dr. Garang de Mabior in the year 2007. Before Salva Kiir became the President of South Sudan, he used to be aware and make sure that SPLA/M security is not penetrated or broken by any mechanism between the years ‘80s and 2007, and he, Salva Kiir Mayardit passed. That is why Salva Kiir Mayaardit was appointed to lead SPLM and Autonomous Government of Southern Sudan.
For the sake of South Sudaneses’ safety, Salva Kiir would by then have understood that he was the one in control of the SPLA/M leadership even when late Dr. Garang de Mabior was still alive because if the SPLA/M security had broken down from that time – the time when SPLA/M was still weighing gorilla war against former Sudanese government/army, there would have been nothing called “Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement in South Sudan or in Sudan as whole. Therefore, security matters; it is the third thing human being needs in life after food – water & shelter. If SPLA/M security could have broken down, South Sudan would by now stand like a fragile state, but SPLM security did not break down between the year 1983 and 2013. As a thank you, Commander Oyai Deng Ajak, Peter Gathoth Mai, David Yau Yau, Dr. Adwok Nyaba, etc, and the earlier SPLA leaders like Karbino Kuanynyin Bol and William Nyuon to mention few. You have done a magnificent duty to keep SPLA/M security in it healthy shape.
Kudo to you all! Remember: instead of inviting other African leaders and their businessmen to party with South Sudaneses inside the Republic of South Sudan while South Sudan is still fresh, President Salva Kiir could have put strong security system in places in each and every part and corners or border of South Sudan. As for foreshadowing, all former old Sudanese leaders including current Sudanese President Omaro Hassien Wä’ Pa’shiro, they all have been doing the right job when it come to securing country as whole – gate by gate, border by border and that has been why none of any African countries that borders whole ever attempted to penetrate Sudanese land/border without any proper and thorough check or permission.
Instead of partying with other African leaders or friends inside South Sudan, Government of South Sudan could have put every nation across the continents on hold until South Sudan is stable and secured because, as a new country, no one has a clue among South Sudaneses about who is the wolf-a-sheep skin or who-is-a-lion in a cow’s body and who-is-a-bomb-in-a-bread-dough or who-is-a-poison-in-a-drink yet. Until the new country, South Sudan is secured, security matters before inviting your friends to come over and have party. Security matters. It is the strongest foundation of social life, development, education, health, freedom and life itself and since oil is a life now a day, missing security is a missed life.
As for an advice, it would be an asset to fully drain out all foreign businesses/workers, all foreign armies including all security forces from United Nations and African Union’s and anybody who is fire armed but is not member of South Sudan Army, the SPLA to pave the way, strengthen the security system in South Sudan for South Sudaneses to be able to cope with today’s modern development. All other political parties should be banned from operating in South Sudan because that is where foreigners found a vacuum and nose into South Sudanese government affairs. Only SPLM and South Sudan Army, the SPLA must continue the work of government in South Sudan. The ones who call themselves oppositionists (Army or movement/party) must be cleared out, let to live outside South Sudan border or join the Government of South Sudan, the SPLM (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement) and South Sudan Army, the SPLA (Sudan People’s Liberation Army) until South Sudan is secured enough.
And, for the leadership issue in the SPLM, Salva Kiir has to continue playing as the SPLM leader with other eleven ex-prisoners and if not Salva Kiir, former South Sudanese Secretary General Pa’gan Amum Okiech or one of the eleven has to lead the SPLM. Another person that could play SPLM leadership is previous South Sudanese Vice President Dr. Riek Machar, but if and only if he, Dr. Riek agrees to join the SPLM leadership as a Ministry or Presidential Advisor or Vice President of South Sudan if Salva Kiir will not declines his position as a President and a leader of the SPLM first. For the sake of the unity and united South Sudan and South Sudanese peoples, those separatists who always like to keep South Sudan divided and at war with itself, and to create room to allow foreigners to cheat or steal from South Sudan – while their relatives and children hide overseas or in other countries, Dr. Lam Akol Ajawin with his SPLM-DC and Dr. Riek Machar with his SPLM-IO must understand that South Sudaneses and South Sudan do not need any ideology opposes to the SPLM vision. SPLM-DC and SPLM-IO need to rally behind SPLM as soon as possible and omit those DC and IO because united South Sudan with one political party, the SPLM is what South Sudaneses need and it is what makes South Sudan united and secured.
As for author, my father late Kuol Owet (former member of the artilleries and SAM (Anti-Aircraft) operator unit in Fashoda Battalions, SPLA) died while he was still in this business thing calls SPLA/M Vision. You fail me, you fail SPLM/A, South Sudan and South Sudanese. Oh, you understand I live abroad, but you have no idea about what I am working on to keep SPLM Vision alive too eh. And, as for you Lawmaker or Justice “Pagan Amum Okiech,” you are Chollo just like me, but remember to put Chollo or who is who things aside for SPLM Vision, South Sudan and South Sudaneses as whole, and do not try to do something stupid and leave SPLM for your own obtuse; do not try and create something out of SPLM like mad scientist Dr. Lam Akol Ajawin with his madness because we have been with you Pagan Amum Okiech from every footstep you have taken, and don’t forget who have been getting you out of prison in Khartoum and Juba.
Make oil in South Sudan a life for South Sudan and South Sudanese interests in the name of the SPLM Vision, South Sudan and South Sudaneses at home and abroad; do not leave SPLM even table because Salva Kiir has saved you, and life of other eleven political pals of yours, prison was the safe hide for you and your all. You could have been killed by those greedy-separatists out of the SPLM’s unit. That is how father makes good judgment for his children and President Salva Kiir has done just that by protecting you all from being killed because you are all SPLM members.
In conclusion, oil is life; O.I.L.
