South Sudan Civil War

The reality of war in South Sudan

Thursday, October 20, 2018 (PW) — You know what, when you do something, it will inevitably be followed with a consequences. For instance, when you lit a fire, a smoke appears and too much sneezing causes the blood to flow from the nose. To come back to answer the question laid above as who voted for war? For this question, I would like to take a live example on the holy priests of God, the Pharisees—who had been, for a long time teaching and admonishing on how the Israelites, the hire of the Kingdom of God must positively response for the prophetically coming of Messiah, the Prince of peace. Unfortunately what happened when the expected Prince of peace come?

The Community went out welcoming their Messiah with ululation and shouts of welcome, welcome son of David! Exactly as the Prophets predicted it—even they, (Priests) had been teaching about His coming couple of days back; they were teaching that the Messiah of God will be welcomed with such and such great joy. This same is true on SPLM/A leaders, when they were enthusiastically saying that “peace will bless us once again!” Dr. John Garang’s favored speech in Nyayo stadium in Kenya. Unfortunately, like the holy priests, they were not prepared to welcome the Messiah with the humble attitudes, which was how He (The Messiah) was supposed to be welcomed. (more…)

Thursday, October 11, 2018 (PW) — You know what, if we have become a Nation, we must critically learn to be mindful of every tit for tat agreements. Let’s always understand that once the time to amend is gone, then gone are its chances of change. By singing every day or repeating names of the same perpetrators Kiir-Riak, Kiir-Riak, Kiir-Riak or SPLM and SPLMIO will benefit us nothing at all! See the continuous rates of rapes, killings, displacements, and above all, the tendency in the hearts of these privileged politicians—they are still demanding us to remain loyal to their leadership. What does this call for?

Or how can we name it? Does it call for us to side with SPLM or SPLM-IO i.e. Kiir or Reik reps? Or should we comply with the FDs or South Sudan Oppositions Alliance? How does this tragedy depict itself from your own perceptive? In my own Opinions, I can see that this not tribe-to-tribe conflicts but it is a man-to-man positions struggle. Therefore, in this context, I can see that there is nothing wrong about us being from different tribes. No problem in being a Nuer, Dinka, Acholi, Bari, Baka, Zande or any of our South Sudanese tribes.

Now, I want to ask that how can we as people of one identity, supposed to react or behave on this dilemmas, (politically affiliated conflicts) seeing that we totally have given into lawlessness and have forgotten on how to answer to our long life struggle for freedom of autonomous right—the effort which was rewarded eventually by the achieved Country, the Republic of South Sudan. In my Opinions, it is change that is what you South Sudanese Citizens need. With Peace and its implementations, you are robbed of your assets by those big, big and huge budgetary demands for those positions hungry elites—who are coming to feast on your public assets again.
