November 22, 2016 (SSB) —- History tells us that uncontrolled disputes or differences between individuals, groups or nations, can easily lead to misunderstanding, rebellions and conflict. But the double edged nature intriguingly dictates that everything that has a beginning must have an end. Even the spiritual warfare, between God and Satan, being the longest war known to mankind, will end with the second coming of Christ Jesus; whereby Satan and his entourage will be separated for good from the redeemed and anointed ones. Thus, the only medium separating war from peace is time, and time is all we have to work towards achieving our aspirations for lasting peace and prosperity.

Growing up in our malaria infested environment, it is believed that vomiting the yellow and bitter secretions from the stomach was a sign of malaria in the body, which can then be treated with the antimalarial medicines.

November 18, 2016 (SSB) — In my attempt to answer this question, I went through the marketing report 2014-2015 of the Ministry of Petroleum for clues. Indeed, there’s a lot of positive things in it, including their recommendation for economic diversification away from oil dependency, ostensibly, current wells are estimated to run dry in 2035 unless further explorations are done and Jonglei blocs begin to lactate.

To understand what is at stake here, picture the case of a child who is seriously sick and admitted at the high dependency unit. The medical attendant will only allow the parents to be by the bed side – by right, the siblings will wait outside until the patient is out of danger. It’s the parent’s responsibility to make sure that the best doctors are in attendance, prescriptions are brought and administered on time until their child has recuperated and is discharged with a clean bill of health.

With the same measure, the issue of economic diversification away from oil dependency needs to be handled as an urgent imperative by the highest office in the land to avert fatalities and this office has the responsibility to consider establishing an economic diversification council to oversee the implementation of this program and equip such body with a non-compromised budget and competent technocrats recruited without bias considerations to do the job.
