Sunday, May 12, 2019 (PW) — The undue and fabricated allegations and malicious propaganda leveled against Gen. Akol Koor Kuch and the President Salva Kiir, are just but witch hunt by the devotees of well-known acquisitive and despicable rebel’s leaders. It beats sense for one to imagine that the National Security Services (NISS) director Gen. Akol Koor can be at the focus of fanning anarchy in the country; and to what end!

The fallacious report that South Sudan NISS boss is behind the current combat breakout against the civilian by use of unknown gunmen is all diversionary tactics employed by the known rebel groups out to achieve political gain in eccentric and undemocratic means.

We all can attest to the fact that before and in the aftermath of South Sudan’s Independence, the country has been awash with proliferation of firearms. As a result of protracted civil war in the old Sudan; the vast majority of our people have armed themselves to the teeth all in the aims of fighting against Khartoum’s oppressive regimes during the war of liberation struggle.


Unraveling the economically Besieged Omar Al Bashir`s regime of Sudan! Let the Khartoum Demonstrations rage on!!!

By Kerubino Kocrup Makuach, Nairobi, Kenya

Tuesday, December 25, 2018 (PW) — After the Independence of South Sudan on 9th July 2011, Sudan has never experienced peace and stability. For the last 8 years, Sudan has been characterized by many difficulties, economic crisis, and hyper-inflation, high level of unemployment, famine, raging wars and ethnic violence across the nation.

Most of Sudan`s regions have been engulfed by an orgy of violence and humanitarian crisis. Given an example of the ongoing resurgence of war in Southern Kordonfan, Blue Nile and Darfur regions which were the epicenter of genocide a few years back. Sudan is now teetering on the brink of collapse! It has entered in the annals of history as a failed State.

Since 1989 when Gen. Omar Al Bashir took over the government militarily, there have been coup d’état attempts but thwarted by his security apparatus. Omar has been ruling Sudan through iron -fist well- known of dictatorial regime. Sudanese have been having cataclysmic confrontations and hostility towards his government. This is because the government has been unable to provide the people with basic necessities which they enjoyed in the Old Sudan. (more…)

South Sudan`s Peace Celebrations must focus on apology to the victims of protracted Civil War and promise to implement the Khartoum Peace Accord.By

By Kerubino Kocrup Makuach, Nairobi, Kenya

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018 (PW) — The People of South Sudan have a lot of expectations in the recently inaugurated Khartoum peace pact. They hope the peace accord will be honored and implemented to the letter by the warring parties.

In my opinion, time has come to find an amicable solution to the intractable conflict bedeviling the Republic of South Sudan. Since 2013`s outbreak of war to date, the people of South Sudan have suffered a lot.

South Sudanese have witnessed tens of thousands killed, destruction of properties, rape of innocent women and millions of South Sudanese displaced internally and to our neighboring countries. South Sudan’s predicament has been described by many international entities as possibly the worst humanitarian catastrophe in the history of world!

I find it disheartening that South Sudan`s leaders remain blind to the suffering of its masses. The country`s economy is in ruins with the budget registering deficit. Hyperinflation has reached alarming proportions, war is raging all over the country and UNMISS foreign troops are actively involved in looting of the natural resources and abusing the rights of civilian population. The war has drained our human and material resources. (more…)

In the Footsteps of Dr. John Garang: Why We Must Embrace Homegrown Solutions to End Conflict in South Sudan

April 12, 2018 (SSB) — In December 2013, war broke out as a result of political disagreements within South Sudan`s ruling party – Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM). The nucleus of the disagreement was a power squabble between the Party Chairman, President Kiir Mayardit and the Deputy Chair, Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar.

The two leaders disagreed over voting modalities in electing the Party’s Chairman. The chair of the party was a greatly contested position. Owing to the popularity of the SPLM party on the ground, it was assumed that the man clinching the seat would automatically carry the day in the soon to be held presidential general election.

The SPLM’s National Liberation Council meeting held in early December at NYANKUORN Hall ended with some party members feeling disgruntled. A motion fronted by Dr. Riek Machar and the former Political Detainees (FDs) group who had been shot down by a show of hands. A modality the Riek side of the divide in SPLM could not agree with.

May 28, 2017 (SSB) — Let’s take a walk down memory lane. In December 2013, violence erupted in Juba as a result of a political disagreement within the ruling party, SPLM. That is between President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his former Vice President Riek Machar. As the war raged, the two warring parties were summoned to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, for peace talks under the auspices of Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD).

Several deals were reached to end the fighting, but they did not hold. Fighting continued and quickly deteriorated into an all- out ethnic violence pitting Dinka, Nuer and other communities against each other. A parallel process was started by Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), a Tanzanian political party, under the leadership of former President Jakaya Kikwete. The primary aim was to reunify and rejuvenate the splintered SPLM.  The reformed SPLM would then undertake key political and economic reforms in the country.

The three SPLM factions, having signed up to several agreements negotiated on both the Arusha and IGAD processes, proceeded to implement them and bring the war to an end.  Thus in 2015, the former political detainees returned to the country and their key member, former SPLM Secretary General, Mr. Pagan Amum, was reinstated in his position.

Juba university demonstration2

Juba university demonstration, 8 May 2017

May 9, 2017 (SSB) —- I appeal to the people of South Sudan not to listen to the music of propaganda which is being played on social media. At close observation, a rationale mind can tell that the Government of the Republic of South Sudan under the leadership of President Kiir Mayardit is now working tirelessly, day and night to salvage people’s fangs of grievances.

It is true that our nation is undergoing a lot of difficulties and turmoil.  South Sudan is suffering from an economic basket- case due to civil strife, which culminated to man-made famine, insecurity, inter- communal pogroms and skyrocketed commodity prices. All these challenges are part and parcel of fragile state like South Sudan.

So the big questions remain, who do we blame for all these problems? It goes to our political leaders who pursue for raw power, the selfish, parochial and sectarian groups. There is an African saying that goes” when the two elephants fight, the grasses suffer”. In other words, the innocent people are suffering now.

Mama Nyandeng Crying after the warring parties failed to sign the final peace accord

Mama Nyandeng Crying after the warring parties failed to sign the final peace accord in 2015, Addis Ababa

March 2, 2017 (SSB) —- Mama Rebecca Nyandengdit will be remembered in the history of the Republic of South Sudan as a woman who has betrayed the hard- fought legacy of her husband, the late. Dr. John Garang de Mabior. The Republic of South Sudan has come a long way to overcome enormous challenges; the long prevailing civil war that saw many of its citizens lose lives, property just to mention but a few.

It is encouraging to note that such perils have not muted the resolve of the citizens to rebuild a nation that respects rule of law, accountability and transparency and whose goals remained the common good of all individuals. Such gains over time may never have been achieved without the selfless leadership of our humble leader H. E, President Salva Kiir Mayardit.

It is however sad to note that individuals like Mama Rebecca Nyadengdit, a woman we all honoured as a nation has lost such resolve to see a better South Sudan. Lately she has been spotted advocating in the US Congress for the Republic of South Sudan to be declared a failed state and to be therefore having the United Nations take over its leadership, force arms embargo and target economic sanctions, plus sending more than 70,000 regional protection forces to South Sudan so that our President can be forced to resign with immediate effects.

February 10, 2017 (SSB) — I call upon all South Sudanese across the world to dismiss SPLA- IO propaganda against the South Sudan Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya regarding the disappearance of Dong Samuel Luak and Aggrey Idri Ezbon. For the past two weeks, SPLA- IO remnants and their International organization’s cohorts have been fabricating malicious allegations that it is the South Sudan embassy responsible for the kidnapping of activists, Dong Samuel and Aggrey Idri claimed to be allied to the opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar.

I would wish to assure the public that the South Sudan Embassy in Kenya under the stewardship of our humble ambassador Chol Mawut has nothing to do with the whereabouts of the two activists.  Now it is known that the friends and relatives of the above mentioned victims have already filed a case at the Nairobi Milimani courts against suspects who have no connections with the South Sudan Embassy in Nairobi or even the Government whatsoever.
