June 6, 2017 (SSB) — First and foremost, I would like to convey my greetings to my fellow South Sudanese plus all the readers who may have opportunity to go through this article. Our nation is currently led by dreadful ideologies, fraudulent and awful hearts.  Those have lost all the morals integrity in leading us. We have lost the spirit of nationalism to eradicate the right technique to national capacity building and peace building.

I don’t consider myself among the majority of neutrals I do protests on how this country is mishandle, am not in budge with frustrated majority who feel helpless and too scared to speak anything who are indeed silence, and experience worry on South Sudan national security lethal behaviors. In fact I’m not against any proposal that will bring peace to our nation.

Honestly, I would like to share my opinion to public on National Dialogue initiated by the HE Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the Republic of South Sudan to interview the problem and find solution to ongoing war across the nation in-accordance to compromise peace agreement signed two years ago between the government and arms opposition party (SPLM-IO) negotiated by IGAD, although some people may get resentful to my article I will still remain a South Sudanese die-heart citizen continuing with national opinion poll.

South Sudan National Day of Prayers

March 10, 2017 (SSB) — I wish to advise all politicians in our Country to attend the national prayer day which is schedule to place tomorrow 10th March across the country in person without fail.  We need to tend up in big number to show that we are ready to end the conflict that affecting our country. We need to confess our problem within us, let repent and finally ask Almighty God to forgive us in whatsoever we did wrong to either ourselves or to the creator. Forgiveness is the first priority in the kingdom of God; God will possibly forgive us if we forgive ourselves.

The national day of prayer on 10th March declared by His Excellency President Salva Kiir Mayardit should not just be perceived as a question of logical debate but goes to expose the absence of religious principle in his personal life and that of the party he leads. Let come-up with the spirit of nationalism to handover our problems to our creator who is in-charge of everything to bless us with everlasting peace in our nation.

War

The Genius of Dr. John Garang: Speeches on the War of Liberation Paperback – November 26, 2015 by Dr. John Garang (Author), PaanLuel Wël (Editor)

March 4, 2017 (SSB) — First and foremost, I would like to thank the president of the Republic of South Sudan H.E Salva Kiir Mayardit for the declaration of March 10, 2017 as national day for prayers. According to the president, the content of that prayer ought to base on healing, peace and reconciliation amongst the people of South Sudan. He further recommends all politicians to reconcile and make forgiveness as priority in this prayer.

On additional statement Kiir also asks all the South Sudanese nationals to observe this day suitably without failed, he also encourage every citizen to forgive each other for all mistakes we might have come across during the last four years of civil war. That was statement of the president encouraging people to forgive and forget all the mistakes impose to this nation by the crisis.

The above statement stated by president has actually convinced me to have my opinion toward it, and also have a great support to his idea of national prayers as the only solution to the current economic crisis of this nation. I also learned that, war within should not force us to disgrace our nation agenda of freedom toward spirit of togetherness.

March 2, 2017 (SSB) — Our country, South Sudan is in danger; criminal cases increased day by day and no any solution to these crimes activities which affecting the nation at this time. The situation becomes worsen and more uncontrollable in all corners of South Sudan.

This has shown clearly that there is no improvement at this juncture of hunger and insecurity of which no solution provided by our government. The only step taken by government was declaration of famine in all parts of South Sudan.

The government seems to have failed in handling its affairs across the nation, and this has been since comprehensible especially in the sector of economic management as the worse area in the government. The main central bank of South Sudan is in-charge of sponsoring the current black market in Juba. It was Central Bank policies that push US dollar at floating rate toward black market.

December 13, 2016 (SSB) — South Sudan was meant to be great. That was the dreams of our forefathers but sadly the South Sudan we have today is anything but the dreams of our forefathers. This is not the South Sudan our fathers had in mind when the lay down their lives for the Good and unity for our nation. When our fathers pressured Khartoum government for independence the plans they have for this country was of unity and greatness. Sadly many years later we are still struggling to be united talk more of being great. How can we be great when we are not united?

Those of us born in the late rebellion of SPLM/A will agree and understand with me when a say as a child in those days we belong to nobody but we belong to everybody. We were not trained by our parents alone, the whole community trained us. (In some cases more than our parents) it doesn’t matter your tribe or religion if u misbehave any elderly person around there have the right and moral responsibility to correct you and even discipline you. And our parents will thank them. But today the case is very much different.

September 15, 2016 (SSB) —- First and foremost, I would like to convey condolence to the families who lost their beloved people to unknown gunmen especially those who were innocently killed on Nimule, Juba, kaya, Yei and Juba, Yei road without reason let their soul rest in peace. I also thank my fellow South Sudanese people for being honest and concession during this crisis and maintain their spirit of nationalism without protesting calling for help from international community.

Although they cover a lot of challenges such as hunger problem and insecurity matter, they citizen remain supportive to government especially those suffering in Yei county, Yei River state (Central Equatoria) who are actually lock inside the den of hunger without any help from any institution their suffering is unfold policy of rebellion in the region.

In this analysis you will understand, who is responsible for citizen’s well-being and properties protection in the country? This question will help you understand where there is problem in this nation. We know very well that citizens are basically protected by government from external and internal conflict. Also government makes provision of basic needs to all citizens across the country to make sure that their basic needs such as provision of enough food, health and education facilities are well constructed across the nation.

SPLM House

SPLM WHAT?

September 7, 2016 (SSB) — Struggle for power is a common observable fact that surrounds every determination in both the secular and religious sector, most especially in South Sudan. Many hearts have been wounded beyond healing. Blood has been shed by civil war, as well as genocide across the nation which has resulted into much rebellion this has been a common practice in our nation South Sudan. If you try to trace the roots of all these conflicts, you will find that deep down the cause of these conflicts is power struggle.

In South Sudan we have witnessed tribalism rousing during the defection of Dr. Riek Machar Teny since 1991, 2013 and 2016 rebellion where majority of Nuer stick together to fight government of republic helping Riek to overthrown the elected president of South Sudan while majority of Dinka remain loyal to government because of Salva Kiir being their son. This is a new policy in South Sudan, every group of people wants to put in the high post someone who is of their tribe or who can favor their interests. We see people go back to traditional practices of superstition in order to win elections or any appointment. Bribes also take place during these times in different ways including promises of important rank.

May 6, 2016 (SSB)  — All the Ministers in transitional government of national unity were chosen by their parties and endorsed by the president of the Republic of South Sudan to represent the interests of the people, care for the welfare of the people and also drive the country to greater developed status. In today’s biosphere, leadership is about having a good understanding of the current political, economic and social dynamics. The ability of leaders to address the related concerns will enable them to face and overcome hardship that may face them.

They were actually appointed or even driven to their positions based on their ability to safeguard the trust given to them to carry out their responsibilities diligently. For the reason that, Being a leader is not just a matter of filling up a specific important position or job, but in carrying the trust, they are accountable also to people and God. Many leaders today lack this pivotal element in the leadership concept.

February 10, 2016 (SSB)  —  Allows me to have my voice on economical confusion in the heart of juba town, the question of hard currency has been a serious deal to tolerate for so long. Our government has failed to monitor the problem of hard currency across the country. Now, in South Sudan one Dollar has raised to 22 SSP in central Bank of South Sudan while in black market 1 Dollar has gone up to 35 SSP Yet our local citizens are not aware of the U.S dollar currency policy in the nation.

Though, The U.S. dollar is the world’s reserve currency and the founded nation of U.S dollar is the world’s biggest consumer of other currency. Other countries whose economies are centred on exports rely heavily on America’s consumption. Hence, a falling dollar is an issue many countries cannot afford to ignore. Further devaluation of the dollar is sure to come.

February 9, 2016 (SSB)  —  Whether we are concerned with suffering born of poverty, with denial of freedom, with armed conflict in our nation, or with a reckless attitude to the natural environment everywhere, we should not view these events in isolation. Eventually their repercussions are felt by all of us. We, therefore, need effective directives from government authorities to address our national issues from the perspective of the oneness of humanity, and from a profound understanding of the deeply interconnected nature of today’s violence.

February 5, 2016 (SSB)  —-  I would like to ask the commission for National Healing, Peace and reconciliation to set an awareness to preach all the communities of South Sudan the importance of peace in the nation. All members should be from all the communities and the government should monitor all groups in whatever they are doing. The awareness should be all level of societies in the country.

The awareness team should be mandated to organized campaigns on domestic violence, tribalism, nepotism, corruption and segregationist people. All these should discourage during peace awareness, people should be encourage loving each other as people in one nation.   It will also endeavour to promote justice and democratic principles, to expand human rights and strengthen non-military means of peace-making.

February 1, 2016 (SSB)  —  If you are in this nation and you have not done research before, try and do it right away. Get yourself a copy of South Sudanese newspaper sold at the street of Juba. Go through its pages to find out how many people were described in that particular edition as believable politicians or honest and selfless South Sudanese. You would be surprised to see the number of people that thoughtlessly allowed to be allied with such wonderful qualities even when they are fully aware that by what most people know about their character and evil history, it might even be considered a generous compliment to dress them up in the very opposites of those terms.

Politics is hindering public investment in South Sudan

January 29, 2016 (SSB)  — Over the past four months, the inflation caused by devaluation of Currency has been the subject of powerful debate at the street of Juba city till now. But today, instead of dwelling on the economic risks, I would like to turn instead to another important topic that is the relationship between economic stability and peace in the country. It is my abiding credence that they are intimately tangled. If you lose one, you are likely to lose the other item. Peace is a necessary requirement for trade, sustained economic growth, and prosperity.

In turn, economic stability, and a rising prosperity that is broadly shared both within and among outside image foster peace. Ultimately, peace and prosperity feed on each other. I believe history teaches us this lesson. We all remember how the Countless Unhappiness created fertile ground for a devastating war. More recently, in many parts of the country, economic instability provoked political upheaval, social unrest, and conflict.

January 28, 2016 (SSB)  —  First and foremost, I would like to greet all my fellow South Sudanese people who have face great challenges on their own soil as the result of poor leadership. I know that you have never experience the freedom that you fought for. But this what I can tell to my leaders who are holding big positions without delivering good services to people that  being a leader is not just about holding an important position, but in loud the trust, the leader will be held accountable to people. Of course all the leaders were chosen by voters to represent their interests, care for the welfare of the people and also drive the country to greater heights. In this background, leadership is an important area that needs detailed discussion and concentration.

May peace and reconciliation prevail in South Sudan!!

November 24, 2015 (SSB)  —  Right now, we have our President who holds the executive powers, the legislative powers, power over the military, and the power to veto the drafted constitution or create another constitutional committee if he wishes. If this alone wasn’t disconcerting enough, let’s add to it the fact that there is no organized opposition to him, he seems intent on continuing the time-honored tradition of hiring loyalist unqualified hacks and lackeys for important government positions, he doesn’t seem to have any intentions of being democratic or even create a government out of the coalition that he created, with his supporters viscously attacking anyone who criticizes him, sometimes with religious overtones.

One would think that our president must have a huge mandate to be able to pull this kind of crap on all of us, but surprisingly enough, he doesn’t. He won with 99%, with almost half of his votes coming from secular innovative voters who simply didn’t wanted Dr. Lam Akol to win. In reality, if someone did the math, one would realize that at least 7.5 million of the 8 million voters who voted in the presidential elections in Southern part did not vote to have the war again in the country.

August 11, 2015 (SSB)  —  First and foremost, I would to greet my fellow South Sudanese plus all the readers who may have opportunity to go through this article. Honestly, I would like to share my opinion to public on compromise peace proposed by IGAD, although some people may judge my view to negatives view base on their analysis.

As peace talks is going on in Ethiopia Capital under IGAD mediation many people have learned that whatever IGAD leadership doing, proposed or planed to bring peace back to South Sudan in-order to stabilized security in the country is not working. We really need to start looking for new ways to make this country functional because as things stand now, South Sudan has collapsed in many windows. We have noted that IGAD leaders or authorities have nothings to worry about because they are been derived by money. Indeed, they have commercialized the talks.
