September 4, 2016 (SSB) — In response to James Ladu Modi‘s column name (The Truth) title, who are we to threaten the UNSC? Publish by Juba monitor daily English newspaper on Friday 2/9 2011.As if he, (James Ladu) still don not know himself up to now. But for me and the rest of my readers, it was on the 9/July 2011, when we have known ourselves as citizens from the Republic of South Sudan. Meaning, an Independent country from any foreign rules on this World apart from doing it for the interest of South Sudan government policy like what just writer who supposed to rename his column from truth, James Ladu fail here to understand.

Doesn’t he, James Ladu have age assessment certificate, Nationality, Boma, Payam, County State, Country or are is he not relying on South Sudanese Pound in order to identify himself where do he belong? According to South Sudan Compromise Peace Agreement not like Sudan Comprehensive Peace Agreement which was planes and force on the elected government of South Sudan by UNSC, AU and some countries in IGAD in August 2015 at freedom Hall signed by the president Salva Kiir Mayardit has comes to effect not because of the agreement articles fulfilled but because of symphysis and love of South Sudan government to it citizens.

Why has land administration in South Sudan subsequently remain largely without a clear statutory basis?

land grabbing in South Sudan

July 5, 2016 (SSB) — Squatting and land-grabbing have become major issues after South Sudan got her Independent. The lack of a clear policy and legal framework on land issues under-resourced institutions and the lack of a systematic, transparent process for plot allocation have also meant that ordinary citizens find it increasingly difficult to access land within the towns of South Sudan. Corruption is rife and in practice only those with money or connections can obtain land.

The majority of Juba’s people live without secure land tenure and are hence under constant threat of their life and eviction from the opportunists. Many have experienced repeated demolitions of their homes and have in the process been relocated to the outskirts of the city of Juba. The SPLM frequently used the slogan ‘the land belongs to the people’, or community although this principle was never actually enshrined in the Interim Constitution and other constitutions of Southern Sudan. Nor does the Act spell out clearly enough the roles and responsibilities of the various levels of government in relation to land administration in the country.

The city of Juba, South Sudan

June 27, 2016 (SSB) — The beginnings of peace in 2005 and the rapid pace of urbanization that followed have led to significant social changes. As one UN representative remarked, in 2005 that Juba was like an overgrown village within a time capsule where not much had changed since 1993, since then everything has accelerated. Juba has attracted significant numbers of people, both returning South Sudanese and foreigners, all with a diversity of backgrounds and life experiences. This, together with the advent of modern technologies such as mobile phones and the internet has brought about changes in many areas, including cultural norms, social networks and people’s relations to and perceptions of leadership, governance and peace.

Whilst people used to settle according to whether they were returning as refugees, IDPs or from a particular homeland, in many areas these distinctions are no longer apparent. In 2008, research into return and reintegration in South Sudan found that returnees from rural areas in Uganda and Kenya tended to be viewed as unsophisticated or uncivilized and non-Sudanese. It was found antagonism between people who had lived in areas controlled by the Khartoum Government and those who had lived in areas controlled by the SPLA or who had left for Uganda. Today there is much greater diversity.

Juba

June 19, 2016 (SSB) — Infrastructure and service provision are failing to keep pace with the expanding town, existing structures are under growing pressure and in many areas they are deteriorating. State authorities have been reluctant to expand infrastructure and the provision of public services in the belief that doing so might encourage an even greater influx of people into Juba. In fact, the factors influencing migrants’ decision to come to Juba are more complex. While improvements in access to services in rural areas and in smaller state capitals might one day have the effect of reducing the number of people coming to Juba, this is unlikely to be a major incentive for existing residents to leave.

There is a general view that services in Juba are better than in the rest of Southern Sudan. Certainly, compared to many other states, basic services are overall more readily available and most investment in the South Sudan has focused in and around the town. Several government-run primary health clinics have been built, private health centres and pharmacies are burgeoning, the government has supported the expansion of the Juba Day secondary school and the town hosts a university. However, the benefits of these improvements are not shared equally among Juba’s inhabitants. Water points are not being maintained, health clinics are short of staff, equipment and medicines and government schools are overcrowded and lack trained teachers. Private Service provision is growing, but few can afford to pay for school fees or drug treatments.

tribalism in south sudan

June 15, 2016 (SSB) —- Former greater Warrap state and in particular newly created Gogrial state community has been seen as a beacon of peace and stability in the region. However, the newly created Gogrial state has suffered low intensity internal conflicts mainly associated with competition for resources such as pasture, land and border disputes, water and livestock in the pastoralists’ areas. The community communal conflict witnessed in the 2005 was seen by many as a trigger of what has always been a simmering conflict, destruction of property and loss of lives, displacement of persons and the general negative impacts to the social, political and economic affairs of Gogrial state community.

The situation sparked regional and national interventions culminating in the mediation efforts by former neighboring communities group call to form (Akac Akac) in Dinka language, meaning enough or stop. The success of the mediation of Akac Akac and government in Tonj first conference had eventual bring signing of the peace in 2008 until it has started again and again. Since the leaders of Greater Gogrial have not been part of Apuk and Agouk peace and reconciliation conference which casts doubts on the credibility of the concluded conference.

Makiir Gai giving out 100k SSP to South Sudan national team

South Sudan Business tycoon, Hon. Makiir Gai, giving out 100K to South Sudan national team

June 14, 2016 (SSB) —- Yirol will always remain to be academically respected place despite Sunday’s attempts to distort the rich academic history of Yirol to the credits of renowned academics; Professor Machar Kachuol, Professor Isaac Ciir Riak, Professor Abednego Dr. Telar and Dr. Achol Marial just to mention the few. If these profound academics were of similar behavior of Emmanuel Sunday De John, they would not be respected across South Sudan and beyond the way they are being accorded their intellectual creditability and integrity now.

Notwithstanding Sunday’s encroachment into my innocent reputation to defend Makiir Gai and Akot Abiem, the LCs dollar exchange Business tycoon is still not legitimately recognized as Aguok Kuei Community Leader up to this moment. While Akot Abiem remains a scarcely literate dude and perpetrator of the two communities conflict to which he was and still preoccupied by his maternal influence and interest, Sunday De John will not still be part of the peace and reconciliation processes and rather a just hired mouthpiece to maintain himself and the Nairobi medical school tuition fees.

May 31, 2016 (SSB) — All of you, except Mr. Sunday de John, might have been aware about what had seriously going on in Aguok Kuei community leadership since in the fourth 4th conference Dec/27-29 2014. Which left so many things unclear over the community leadership and on the community nominated son to be the next community leader, Hon. Ludoviko Lual Aken of Aguok-Chiek of Gogrial payam after Makiir Gai’s cousin and former commissioner of Gogrial West County, Cde Aciec Kuot Kuot (Marialawet). Another gossipy, unknown-nominated Makiir Gai Thiep of (Aguokdit) Alek South payam where the former leadership which supposed to be only two years had gone to almost eight (8) years with Makiir as he was finance secretary.

How, nonsense are Mr. Sunday depending points against his pop, Makiir Gai and his uncle, Akot Abiem be but he won’t say he don, ever read how much are my articles most especially when it comes to disturbances. He Sunday who share name with Sunday my female friend does not know our integrity in Aguok community and he cannot make us lose all what we want to achieve in the alter of his greediness of food. What Mr. Sunday de John Know only is to give money value and respect money more than any other but Sunday is dealing with Lino Lual, anti un necessary gifts and money resistance. Sunday should remember that the man who always swallow born get bloody anus, I don’t know how long will this life of interfering in privacy affairs take Sunday in this kind of treble movement in South Sudan.

Does cream for skin bleaching need our parliament to debate or police to intervene?

May 24, 2016 (SSB) — Improved governance for effective services delivery requires a unification, long-term strategy plan built upon the cooperation between government and citizens on how much confidence they are toward their government. It also important to having involves both public participation and the views of national institutions in the country. The rule of law, accountability and transparency are technical and legal issues at some levels, but also interactive to produce government that is legitimate, effective, and widely supported by peoples as well as a civil society that is strong, open and capable of playing some positive roles in politics and government.

This author considers goals for better governance to be identified as fellows hereafter, legitimacy, effective, responsive institutions and policies, understandable processes and outcomes. Giving politics its place in good governance. Building broad-based support for modification, paying close attention to spurs for leaders and citizens. Assessing public opinion. Strengthening checks and balances both administrative and political. Thinking regionally and staying focused on the long term. Good governance involves far more than the power of the state or the strength of political will, because the rule of law, transparency, and accountability are not merely technical questions of administrative procedure or institutional design.

coffin, booming market in Juba

May 20, 2016 (SSB) — Business is widely considered to be anything that ended with two effects no matter which sides the two belong good one or bad one, it does not only mean buying and selling. It’s also need all of us to consider what we sell to our customers. The purpose of this article is to question the honesty of our African traders in Juba and South Sudanese traders in particular. Over the period I have been willing to buy some certain things in our local markets, I am convinced that these business people in Juba do just sell their any things to innocent customers, even when the items sold are of low quality and others are no longer useful for consumption.

If marketers are on their own thoughts to say that, making money in unethical items in the market which disturbs the mind set of our old aged persons and young ones going on their daily life is moral then. Definitely, the general public may ask help from the authority concern to address issues on how the business of open-selling of coffins with the title, ordinary or VIPs’ ready-made coffins at every roadside of Juba city can be operated. Because, money was never a big motivation for the author except as way to keep score the real excitement is playing game.

peace for RSS

May 18, 2016 (SSB) — Love both your enemies and your friend’s enemies. It is a teaching that is central to all that Jesus did and said. Whatever you think about the war in Iraq, Rwanda and South Sudan are devastating. I understand people have fought with the weapons they have available to them that have cause grave destruction in the region and their weapons are simpler, still I can hardly believe that we in our day and age are watching people being guillotined.

What does it mean to see again the same people who did this coming back? There, some of us in our families lost fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters and also have suffered abuse and violence. What does it mean to love those who have done this to us?

May 8, 2016 (SSB)  —-  There is nothing I haven’t done to make this Wednesday or Sunday de John understand the ethics of professionalism in academic and media laws rules and regulation, but all in all for good faith, my brother turns his red wine eyes down and hears or understand like through his dirty anus, because his two friend have been confirm to have given (him) Sunday de free to choose anything for his a reward  granted so that he oppose to respond me in the facts that Akot Abiem and Makii Gai are daily continues creating conflict in Gogrial state community not Apuk and Aguok alone but to the region in the future if not stop now or bring two of them before court apart from developing division in Aguok Kuei community due to the recently fake Makiir leadership and his money eaters.

To be frank, money is mostly said to be the root of all double evils. That can be true, but in some cases, money can serve as the root of all that are both good and bad Mr. Sunday should know the sweet of Makiir and Akot money you are eating now will later turn bitter and all of you will suffer equally if you are not careful with how you receive that money. It also depends on what types of problems one defend. Why do Makiir Gai tiredly spent all his business money on buying the loyalty of few keys cronies?

April 14, 2016 (SSB)  —-  Considering the high risk and dangers associated with petroleum product as a highly inflammable product, its exploration, transportation, offloading, storing , sale points and facilities should not be taken for granted in residential areas like other products. According to WHO (2004) report indicates more than 2.3 million lives and properties worth more than 4.5 billion which are lost to fire outbreaks associated to petroleum product mishandling in Africans countries.

Even though this facility may have different names depending on the part of the world, the purpose to which it is located still remains the same, the structure or building where petroleum products are sold to motorists or for other local consumption.  For instance, Location of petrol station generally despite its important to the economy, it is expected to be guided by a defined environmental rule in a certain country.

March 31, 2016 (SSB)   —- Signing peace accords and staging alone cannot provided enough coexistence of communities neither Western people prescribed remedial free and fair election do not necessarily bear the dividends of lasting peace, I love all my leaders including the president of Republic of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit, the man that can smile in trouble, gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection.

A new state South Sudan needs a national identity at one level the constitution sets the national identity. New constitutions are usually born in particular historical and political circumstances and the nation they define is based on that context. With the leadership that not magnetic personality as well as glib tongue, leadership is not making friends or influencing people, it is action not position Mr. President.

Solving conflict in the African continents, AU in position to help prevent many of these problems by encouraging African leaders to abide by its African charter on democracy (1-2)

March 18, 2016 (SSB)  —  Following the popular revolts that toppled Tunisia’s Ben Ali, Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, many African affairs analysts have pondered on the reasons why these rebellions have not yet spread to Sub-Saharan Africa or are it because Sub Saharan Africa has not had the Islamic groups which have threatened the west.

The real question, therefore,  is  not  why the Arab spring has not spread to Sub-Saharan Africa for  the Sub-Saharan African spring took place much  earlier-, but  why so many analysts believe that    this region is  as ripe for popular revolts as North Africa. In other words, why is the quasitotality of African countries still gnawed by unaccountable political leaders, lack of justice, and democracy decades after African populations had started clamoring for better governance and democratic reforms?
