January 17, 2017 (SSB) — First and foremost I believe it’s still valid to wish all my countrymen and women both the suffering and the well-off a Happy and Prosperous New Year, 2017 – a blessed year. Allow me appreciate the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM) led government for the job well done bringing us from 2016 to 2017, Bravo SPLM!
It would not make sense if one goes ahead without saying that we are or were one naturally(politically, registered or not) SPLM members and as I speak the writer himself is a staunch SPLM member. Generally, we are SPLM members both the leaned and the illiterate. In fact if you go to my village now, you will see my mothers and fathers chanting ATHIELE WAYEEEEE!! ATHELEEM WAYEEE!! All means SPLA/SPLM Oyee as our slogan.
I don’t know how it is in your village. All I know is that, it’s my, your and our party and we are proud of it. For those of us who were born in 1990s, our understanding about The SPLM Vision, Mission, and Goals may not carry any flesh but can’t stop us from talking about our party, country. Allow me take you through what a town is. A town in my view or understanding though narrow, is ‘’any place with basic social amenities.’’ I pray and apologize that academicians don’t sue me for defining it wrongly but that’s all I have in my store (brain).
