Your need food, seriously?

March 24, 2017 (SSB) — If words were humans or if I had any way, this article would write itself reason being that it bears all we know about ourselves. I’m wondering whether many of us have seen the signs and symptoms this disease or just me alone. However, my own research shows that we are all suffering differently but the same disease – rich or poor.

I called it ‘Victim Mentality’ not that I can’t find other words, but these two words makes a complete view of our status in South Sudan. For me or us who have been suffering since, before, during and now in an independent state – South Sudan, I’m or we aren’t bothered nor ashamed to talk about it otherwise, it is part of us and by the way by this time, we would have been veterans if suffering was an achievement.

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).

January 13, 2017 (SSB) —- Yes, when we talk of foreign policy, we are looking at a way a country relates with other states (in simple terms), but that can’t stop one from saying a word about our foreign policy as a nation – South Sudan. It’s worth mentioning that our diplomatic missions are doing tremendously as far as maintaining good diplomatic relations is concerned, but again there are situations when we feel our polices don’t earn anything in international games(politics) and the writer is of the view that our foreign policies be defined.  We all or some of us know that a good foreign policy should be based on principles of; promotion of peace, respect of international law, treaties and obligation, settlement of international disputes, opposition of all forms of domination, and racism, oppression and exploitation and ex ce tra.

All these can best be achieved defending on a state’s foreign policy regardless of the form of governance used by that very country. During those years of our struggle for independence, Our polices earned us good reputation at international level even as gorilla (SPLA/M, 1983-2005) till the attainment of our independence on 9th July 2011. Shortly after our independence, we rushed into signing many international treaties not knowing that we have never defined our foreign policy which in turn would protect our interests in global politics in gloomy situations. Instead of setting good polices, we vault to those treaties forgetting their setbacks.
