Governor Philip Aguer of Jonglei state

Governor Philip Aguer of Jonglei state

Saturday, October 13, 2018 (PW) — I raise a standing ovation to the governor of Jonglei state H.E Philip Aguer Panyang for his daily commitments to make jonglei state a haven of peace, unity and prosperity. Mr. Governor, your efforts and commitments to make our state better is recognizable. Meanwhile, the question of who is a good leader has been a bone of contention in the literate world. This is because of the diverse opinions of the civil population towards their various leaders.

As for me, a leader who is positive minded and stands for the solidarity of his people is the best. A leader who wears the shoes of his people at all times regardless of the situation always touches my conscience. A leader who has a vision to serve his people in the right manner always calls for my attention. These are my personal opinions about my governor and I am proud of him. I realized that the best motivation and support, which I can offer to Mr. Governor, is just to appreciate him more sincerely for he always stay on the forefront to unify our people. I felt I should say thank you governor now so that you do better tomorrow.

In the recent past we have got few individuals who decided to drop their manners and crave to disintegrate our prodigious society for the short terms gains. In my opinion these gentlemen and women who sought education in foreign countries and felt the urge to use it to break our ties, solidarity and communalism did not get it right. It was a purgatory move and it should be condemn with all the strongest terms possible. The soar of dirty songs and speeches towards the wrong age bracket was disgusting too .Our culture has got very strong protection for the aged. It was therefore indiscipline for a young man or a lady to come out clearly in derogatory language towards those whom we are supposed to get blessings from. (more…)

Thursday, October 11, 2018 (PW) — People (Nations) are likely to fall into imbroglio phenomenon when they fail to realize the true set of rights and obligations (that include loyalty) and the conditions those realize the true memorandum of understanding between the chosen (government) and the chooser (people) — and what qualifications anchoring the role of nominee in a form that must be satisfactory (responsibility). People must in the foremost, realize what they want, and how they wish it and when they want it.

And in this context, they (people) must get to harmonize their Opinions, and strongly stand for their common right and have a critical language (boldness and sound mind). But that can never happen except with an informed society—people with open mind, those can clearly see things with reasoning mind. Such people don’t beat the elephant’s shadow, rather they hit at the perpetrators’ heads!

Therefore, the only people who could quickly survive such imbroglio phages more easily are those who question the liability with thorough follow-ups on their set rules those governing them in absolute courage with clauses why? when? How? Which? And who? One of the wise man once said, “The best ways to hide a lie is between two truths”. To continue with that lesson of who is the government, I have tried all my best level to present you my points on who really is the true source of the government with legality censure and to compel.  (more…)

Do Not Confuse a Camouflaged Call for Confederation for Call Federalism

Thursday, October 11, 2018 (PW) — The outset of the current endless war realistically by then was a competition over the control of the higher office (J1). All the ruling party cadres were eyeing the higher office comes 2015, the storm which started in the liberation council of the ruling party in December of 2013 was over who could be the party flag bearer if elections were to had taken place as scheduled in the interim constitution of the nascent state.

Their bodies’ languages and moods starting from the top hierarchy to former deputy, former secretary of the ruling party including the widow of the late hero were so fearsome with possible indicators of skirmish. Their inflammatory spirit of no reverse and compromise were unfortunate thus the symptoms of awaiting endless abyss were crystal to all of them.

Their competition over the control thereafter led to unforgettable and heartbreaking explosion of nascent state and subjected her unaware masses to untold suffering, destitution and destruction of theirs lives and properties since 2013 up to date. And without exaggeration, the problem of south Sudanese were centered around the throne dating back to 1960s when they were still guerilla with no political constituencies to fight over. (more…)

Thursday, October 11, 2018 (PW) — You know what, if we have become a Nation, we must critically learn to be mindful of every tit for tat agreements. Let’s always understand that once the time to amend is gone, then gone are its chances of change. By singing every day or repeating names of the same perpetrators Kiir-Riak, Kiir-Riak, Kiir-Riak or SPLM and SPLMIO will benefit us nothing at all! See the continuous rates of rapes, killings, displacements, and above all, the tendency in the hearts of these privileged politicians—they are still demanding us to remain loyal to their leadership. What does this call for?

Or how can we name it? Does it call for us to side with SPLM or SPLM-IO i.e. Kiir or Reik reps? Or should we comply with the FDs or South Sudan Oppositions Alliance? How does this tragedy depict itself from your own perceptive? In my own Opinions, I can see that this not tribe-to-tribe conflicts but it is a man-to-man positions struggle. Therefore, in this context, I can see that there is nothing wrong about us being from different tribes. No problem in being a Nuer, Dinka, Acholi, Bari, Baka, Zande or any of our South Sudanese tribes.

Now, I want to ask that how can we as people of one identity, supposed to react or behave on this dilemmas, (politically affiliated conflicts) seeing that we totally have given into lawlessness and have forgotten on how to answer to our long life struggle for freedom of autonomous right—the effort which was rewarded eventually by the achieved Country, the Republic of South Sudan. In my Opinions, it is change that is what you South Sudanese Citizens need. With Peace and its implementations, you are robbed of your assets by those big, big and huge budgetary demands for those positions hungry elites—who are coming to feast on your public assets again.

Telar Ring Deng, later South Sudan President Salva Kiir’s nominee to become the new justice minister, 21 June 2014

Friday, August 24, 2018 (PW) — Before I could rush in listing the names of the architects of two wings of Atuot who need to tear the community apart, it is important to bring my readership to light of what has ensued over the last months. On 1st Jan 2018, Atuot Youth in Juba convened in Millennium Hotel to form an organization that would have been called ‘’Atuot Youth Association-AYA’’ for purposes of unity and social organization.

That noble idea was hijacked, politicized and used against an intact community to incite their ignorance to maneuver political ambitions by Juba politicians. Atuot, time immemorial, was a union of 6 Jieng subsections of Apeek, Rorkech, Jilek, Kuek, Luac and Akot, the order is random. Geographically, they live in the western part of Yirol.

The whole idea was taken out of context to divert the purpose as contentions of whether Atuot is a subsection of a bigger Jieng or not and whether Apeek is a subsection of Atuot or not were created by two prominent Atuot politicians and picked by few hired naïve youth to give their political calculation popularity. The idea was to divide the bigger tent (Atuot) into smaller sections that could be accommodated by the politics of sectarianism that is practiced in Juba so as they remain relevant to the policy of tribal representation in national cabinet.

Wednesday, August 01, 2018 (PW) —– When a government has everything going well for her; it shouldn’t worry about criticism. Criticism is a toothless biting mouth whose venom become obsolete when the said government/institution is feeding her subjects with euphoric and joyous things to celebrate for their dear lives. The more a government does well for her subjects, the less criticism the government faces in the long run.

Even if there is a throw of criticism here and there, and the political sentiment in the nation is ripe with prosperity and happiness, then any sort of criticism thrown at the government shouldn’t matter, would it? I ask the government and the leading security agencies to release Peter Biar Ajak from the jaws of injustice labeled against him. We have to start a brand new era of respecting the views of other people that may be different from us!!! The time is ripe to embark on that journey now!!!

No matter how brilliant and bright Peter Biar Ajak is in charting a brand new path for our people to be the sole custodians of their rights and freedoms; it is hard to see how his efforts are going to translate into real substantial results. Salva Kiir is beginning to open up to work with different political organizations, but we are not so certain about how things are going to span out in the long run. (more…)

Cantonment of forces

Monday, May 21, 2018 (PW) — The disconcerting news coming and reaching us from Addis say that there is a little progress in the ongoing talks. The warring Parties failed and are failing to reach any consensus on the key issues; thus rendering chances slim for peace to be concluded.

Commander Michael Makwei, the government spokesman and the spokesman of the government negotiation said they have agreed only on cantonment of forces and on an inclusivity. It sounds ambitious because nothing was elaborated further as to what that inclusivity is or will be and for what.

The religious leaders headed by the South Sudan Anglican Primate, in an exercise of divine powers, took over the talks in a bid to convince the warring parties but they have also failed to make the parties agree on a common ground to ink a deal. I don’t know what they will tell God now that their prayers went unanswered.

Definitely, they will not pray for the negotiators to die. It is only them who know the feedback they will give to the Creator of the suffering people of South Sudan on whose behalf peace is searched. (more…)

Arop Madut Arop's book

Monday, May 21, 2018 (PW) — I must begin with assuring my good Uncle Arop Madut Arop that my respect for him as an elder (not just a maternal uncle) is firmly rooted in that glaring aspect of our Dinka (indeed all African) culture which gives maternal Uncles a special; almost divine status among their nephews. In fact, Uncle Aropdit knows that he has been a role model for me personally and has earned our respect in the family due to his own personal attributes and long principled life experiences.

 I must admit that, given my long family and professional relations with him in which respect for him is a natural order, I may have stepped a certain cultural boundary by responding to his article, even though I (and those whose names were cited by him) may still be right to feel uneasy to be included in an article where “respect for elders” was the main advice. Hence, he has trapped me in those two coexisting uneasy conditions of right-wrong. It feels like that proven physical state of “cold-hot” which certain objects may possess at the same time.

It is not so long ago that my good and close friend Isaiah Abraham (whose name I have given my son) and many writers in South Sudan were killed by known gunmen just because of that unwarranted perception of disrespect in a political arena where they were equal citizens and stakeholders, not just young(er) men. Taking precious life has been the price of disrespect for President Kiir (real or perceived), and what a price it has been! (more…)

Salva Kiir

President Kiir paying his last respect during the public viewing of the body of the late Gen. James Ajonga Mawut, chief of general staff of the SPLA

April 25, 2018 (SSB) — Last week, in reference to opposition demands that you step down, you responded that you would not do it because “nobody can do it.” You were quoted as saying: “what is my incentive in bringing peace if it is the peace that I will bring then I step aside? Bashir did not do it when we were fighting with him.”

The question that pops into our minds would be: can a lucrative exit package be an acceptable incentive? What of an internationally and continentally brokered guarantee of temporary exile (only during the interim period), head of state level covered expenses, and no prosecution agreement?

My motive behind writing this notes is not cynical by any means, I am my own master of my conscience.  My motive is to draw the attention of president Kiir Mayardit, who I would want to be proud of as a citizen of South Sudan, to the fact that: aside from the presidency there are many other incentives that have made other African presidents quit.

April 20, 2018 (SSB) — It has become commonplace knowledge that both Salva Kiir and Riek Machar are political liabilities and unfit to steer South Sudan toward a new dawn of bountiful fortune. Salva Kiir’s promiscuous personality would never allow him to stick to any consistent strategic policy formulation. After the breakout of the war in December 2013, he allowed himself to be controlled by two hardcore ethnic chauvinists in the name of Paul Malong Awan and the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE), and to a certain extent by a group consisting mostly of former Khartoum politicians, whose political allegiance is questionable at best.

Paul Malong Awan’s infamous greed for everything is well known. He wants to have more wives than everyone else. He wants to be the wealthiest person in history that ever lived at the expense of the taxpayers’. He is rumored to have two mansions in Uganda and Kenya: one in Kampala and another in Nairobi as we speak. On his last SBS Radio’s interview dated April 10th, Ateny Wek Ateny stated that” during his time in office as army Chief of General Staff, banks were opened at night for General Malong to take the money and he squandered a lot of money that time.” (more…)


The failures of SPLM give a crying nation in pain, griefs, anger, and suffering of citizens

April 6, 2018 (SSB) — What to do and who is to be blamed for? On the political playing ground, newcomers are to be blamed for hijacking the SPLM systems and ruling principles. Too many promises during liberation struggle for twenty-one or twenty-two years and high expectations of citizens from their government afterward, if SPLM/SPLA won the war against Khartoum which had happened in 2011 would have not been tolerated, and how hijackers used the party for their own purposes?

In reality, forms of unwanted different direction in SPLM objectives which people take the organization for granted resulting in replacement of unwanted advertisement at the international ground folds of the existing error page are what settings programmes the party needs inclusively of the party rebirth and redeeming system for better performances.

However, the SPLM/SPLA too many promises during the liberation Struggle to Citizens, and the transit forces failures of SPLM to go to different destination whereas SPLM had made many promises in liberated areas of Southern Sudan during the wartime consigned SPLM programmes which included the deviated list of SPLM objectives: Unity, peace, justice, liberty, and prosperity.

Was The Political Wrangling In The Ruling SPLM Party The Root Cause Of The Current Crisis In South Sudan?

By Hon Arop Madut Arop, Oxford, UK

fighting in juba, 2013, 2016

March 19, 2018 (SSB) — In this article, I will attempt to answer one basic question as to whether it was political wrangling in the Ruling SPLM party was to blame for the December 15th 20013 crisis or something else. This is important, because some people, both South Sudanese stakeholders and most members of the international community who are making efforts to resolve the on-going crisis appear to have lost sight of the fundamental causes of the said crisis. This oversight was clearly demonstrated when many stakeholders called upon the IGAD led HLRF to resolve the root causes of the crisis first before effort were made to revitalize the 2015 controversial peace deal.

Their request to resolve the root causes before the actual crisis could be addressed presupposes that other social and political ills: like bad governance, tribalism or corruptions were responsible for the crisis. Although these social and political ills are undeniably part of the problem, they are not the root causes of the problem per se. According to medical science, one has to diagnose the causes of the disease suffered by a patient before one can be able to prescribe right medicine to cure it. It is in the same vein that in order to solve the current conflict in the young nation, it will be instructive to discuss the main contributing factors to the current crisis in the hope that those engaged in an effort to bring peace to the world youngest nation would benefit from it. Bear with me.

As we start to discuss the contributing factors to the current crisis, it will be important to recall that, after the independence of South Sudan, all the existing political parties that were registered in accordance to the ancient regime’s constitution, including the SPLM, automatically became illegal entities. The political parties, the old and the new, were then expected to have their parties registered in accordance with the Transitional Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan 2011 before the function as political entities. Basically, the SPLM, as the lead party should have also been registered afresh. This would have been followed by the calling for third-party national convention in order to approve the party’s basic documents namely, the manifesto and the constitution. Other procedural regulations could have also been revised and approved by the third party national convention.

What Does Dr. Riek Machar Confinement In South Africa Means To The High-Level Peace Revitalization Forum?

February 9, 2018 (SSB) — When the war broke out in December 2013, and the two camps emerged one supporting the government and other one supporting Dr. Riek Machar turn Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM-IO). That painful division caused indiscriminately ethnics target and killing suspected to be on both sides. It is a war that caused South Sudan pain, the hope that we were independence state seems to have been chattered and look like a dream; people got back to the struggle they recently emerged out of and they dark days returned.

People with spinelessness starting dubitating themselves why they voted for independence state. To tell you, you made no mistake you are a hero or heroine because you made the independence of South Sudan possible; the one that we had been fighting for almost 50 years. 9th July 2011 was the day millions of South Sudanese were longing to see, the day they have never dreamt of has come during your lifetime. You should be proud of being part of that historical moment in the history of our country.

Whatever happened, our leaders took us back to that closed dark chapter of war and suffering. When August 2015 peace was signed, it cooldown the conflict of 2013. The two camps signed the peace agreement; H.E general Salva Kiir Mayardit and the opposition led by H.E former first vice president Dr. Riek Machar respectively signed the agreement in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. That hope was almost washed away when the other war broke out at president palace 2016. Another challenging moment in the history of our country emerges again. Dr. Riek Machar left the country with some of his troops till he appeared in DRC in one month and a half later.

Why protecting women’s rights and promotion of their rights is the best way of promoting economic development in South Sudan

By Daniel Juol Nhomngek, Kampala, Uganda

February 4, 2018 (SSB) — Before I joined Makerere Law School in 2010, I used to view women like any other men. What comes to the minds of many men whenever they see women is sex. This objectification of women is the product of culture. Men are culturally oriented to look at women as sexual objects that are available for men to satisfy their lusts whenever they want.

It is in relation to the above, majority of South Sudanese men and especially, men in cattle keeping communities do not see women as human beings who can contribute positively to the welfare of the society. But they only see them as sexual objects that can be turned around at any time as they wish and if they refuse they have to be raped or forced to have sex with them.

It should, however, be noted that even though men in the abovementioned communities view women as sexual objects, it is not their faults. Their way of looking at women is culturally predetermined, and just finds themselves culturally directed. Thus, the way women are viewed in our communities is the product of culture as it puts men above women.

South Sudan Hinging Between War and Peace: Will The High-Level Revitalisation Forum (HLRF) Meeting Salvage The War Situation In South Sudan? Part Two

By Hon. Arop Madut Arop, Juba, South Sudan

IGAD plus President Kiir, 25 July 2017

IGAD plus President Kiir, 25 July 2017

January 30, 2018 (SSB) — In accordance to the timeline set by the IGAD led High-Level Revitalisation Forum (HLRF), during its December 2017 inaugural meeting to discuss peace in South Sudan the second talk is expected to reconvene possibly during the first week of February 2018. In the December meeting, two items were discussed and resolved. These were the cessation of hostilities among the warring parties and access to humanitarian delivery to those behind the rebel controlled areas. In the February 2018 encounter, the Forum is also expected to discuss other two main items on the agenda: the signing of the permanent ceasefire and a search for the type of governance that will suit the people of South Sudan; predictably once sustainable peace is achieved.

Seen by observers, the key to the success of the up-coming February meeting will largely depend on how HLRF will harmonise the two positions held by the government and the opposition in effort to forge a mid-way approach to the settlement of the elusive conflict.  But as we proceed with our discussion, it will be important to comprehend adequately the positions of the warring parties. On the first hand the Transitional Government of National Unity, would want to revise or rearrange the clauses of the August 2015, ARCSS document, whose implementation has been frustrated by a number of co-related issues. The opposition groups on the other hand, would want to renegotiate the said peace deal resuscitate it.

When you quarrel with your darling, type how to save a dying relationship and Google will be there for you. If you’re a girl-shy type, the internet is your most trusted brother to find you one. You struggle with your assignment/research, Google intervenes. In fact, Google is too sympathetic that it infringes on academic redlines sometime. This is why we are Netizens. So, what do we’ve for our Delegation to present?

Unity in the search for Peace! Our leaders should intensify and extend the hunt for peace to social media. Pres. Trump, Pres. Museveni, Pres. Kagame, Pres. Uhuru, (& Raila), all are our colleagues here. Coincidently their countries seem to be doing so well. Congrats to Suzzane Jambo and Dr. Majak D’Agoot, they’re here too. Not sure about Pres. Bashir statuses! In fact, social media is leaders’ forum. We miss it the very instant we view it wholly as a propaganda tool. Maybe we need to open up a little. Search for answers to our problems on Google ourselves through our research institutions. We’ll find something relevant to our case, build, value and own it.

January 29, 2018 (SSB) — Dear my immediate ex-governor, despite the fact that I have been stopped by my brothers not to actively participate in writing until later dates, I can’t withhold penning something as you exit Eastern Lakes state and so my apologies to them.

Dear Sir, when you were appointed, I was in Kampala, Uganda. While there, I wrote a short piece in this same space expressing my gratitude and a few words of advice to you. The key words in my then piece were, “murder no one, loot no one” and listen to all before you decide. Exactly you responded to my few words in a manner devoid of arrogance.

Indeed, you are a listener, am proud of you. I don’t regret having supported you for these bountiful virtues and hence I will always support you. You have no victim. You only have happy subjects. You have looted nobody, you were not establishing a monolithic kingdom. You served with revered respect for all. You are not an oppressor and you dictated nobody.

John Garang with the family of Jambo

January 28, 2018 (SSB) — Have you witnessed the recent wave on social media projected by Susanne Jumbo? Hopefully, you have seen some of the uplifting messages she shares with many South Sudanese. Yet, there were negative counterattacks on her character and ideas that were purposely meant for the benefit of South Sudanese people. Those who had mixed reactions were motivated by a combination of both sexism and tribalism, but these harsh realities created a bitterness that almost sidetracked Suzanne. This is not an assumption, because of the intensity of language presented on social media and other websites.

Unfortunately, I differ with her on one thing—rushing to the conclusion to form her political party, which I feel has mysterious components that are negative to the expansion of the party. Oddly, many are saying that her party is a political wing for NAS, but that doesn’t translate into the popularity she just gained by acknowledging the South Sudanese desperation for peace.

What we don’t know is whether there is the connection between NAS and Suzanne’s party. Concluding that the two are connected would be premature, however, any clandestine link, without findings in place wouldn’t help us understand her intention; therefore, her party may need to be fully investigated because our people must know the truth if two are connected.

January 27, 2018 (SSB) — The people of South Sudan have been embroiled in a deadly civil war since December 2013, barely two and half years after the independence in July 2011. Thus, war has crippled the young nation in all aspect of lives, being politically, economically and socially. And we, the former liberators and the current ruling elites, are caught in a moral dilemma for what we have to say to our beloved people of South Sudan. We have failed ourselves and we have failed our own people – for the aspirations of the liberation struggle and the promises of our independence have come to nought.

Today, South Sudan is in the deepest sense of the words, in hope and despair. “Everything seems equally meaningless, equally hopeless.” The horror of war is eroding the noble traits of its people. The excessive mental suffering, just as excessive physical suffering. Alas, the people are only there on sufferance, because it is the land of their forefathers. It is shameful to be indifferent towards another simply because of racial or tribal distinctions. Each wants to wipe out other, from the face of the earth, and each is at another throat. We need full development of our sentimental attitudes, instead of persistent antagonisms.

Yet, it is no secret that the conditions necessary for the inevitable state failure in South Sudan were evidently present on the eve of independence in 2011. The spirit of the new era was negated like a closed book, not read up to date in order to know or understand what mission the SPLM has to fulfil after the independence.

January 27, 2018 (SSB) — South Sudanese people are dying day and night under the external pressures and internal interests. With internal interest, South Sudanese politicians are divided and allow external interest exploiting the young country in the name of concerning about the lives of citizens. Really, when and how? I say no, and nobody who is concerning about the lives of South Sudanese citizens outside there.

Those of Nikki Haley who always saying this statement lying to themselves. If you are concerning about somebody’s life, and you feel the pain of your fellow human being and hardship is going through, you don’t add anger, you don’t insult, you help and find solutions. That is the right spirit of somebody who is concerning the pain of others.

Us is said to be a long friend to South Sudan, and US government is always hampering people of South Sudan indirectly or impede the progress of peace process by lack of funds. In the latest 1990-1991, US government was supporting rebellion within SPLA movement and withdrawn their support later after Nasir faction committed genocide in Bor.
