“The Ugandan government knows how strenuous it is to achieve peace between belligerents, especially when the belligerents have big egos and when those belligerents put their personal egos above national interests,” Ugandan spokesman Shaban Bantariza said in Kampala – Reuters: by Elias Biryabarema August 19, 2015.
August 21, 2015 (SSB) — Mr. Shaban Bantariza has stricken two cords, “personal ego” and “national interest.” Ego and ethos are the reasons the people of South Sudan rose and struggled like no any other people have done to free themselves from the Arab Islamic bondage. To achieve independence and free themselves from Arab Islamic slavery millions died.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni emphasized this fact in a speech in Juba marking the fourth anniversary of the independence of the people of South Sudan, that he congratulated the people of South Sudan for having freed themselves from slavery. That was a very strong note of egoism that explains why there is a country called South Sudan today. This explains why some people who felt over egoistic gambled to cross oceans and deserts to occupy other peoples with lesser ego. That is how people with less or no ego find themselves in slavery. That is why the people of South Sudan, like other free peoples, rose against the Arab slavers as mentioned by His Excellency Museveni.
Along the road personal interests come in and that is why South Sudan, like many other countries, is experiencing this “crisis,” and that is why near and far away concerned countries have come in to find a solution. Some of these countries may have come in driven by self interests and some may be involved out of good intentions.
