March 24, 2018 (SSB) — Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt. Please, chillax and enjoy the ride and don’t forget to leave your comments at end of this piece, after reading it thoroughly; not only by scanning through it, Thanks.

The objective of the article is to wake up my fellow Seeds of the Nation to think critically about the salvation of South Sudan’s innocent children and mothers who are displaced from their homes and are now living in displaced camps inside South Sudan or in neighboring countries as refugees.  Just take a minute and reflect to our olden days! If it pains you like it does me as well, then it is time to think strategically on how to save and shape the image of the South Sudan around globe. Wake up!  Gone are the days when we used to burry our agemates in solidarity.

A doom or failed nation is a nation where young generation are being deceived and misled; South Sudan is no exception. Therefore, it is up to young leaders and followers to open their eyes and avoid a trap set forth by those few egocentric elites, who have copied and pasted a system which they had fought against for last 60 years. It is right time to find a sea to chase them (those elites) into! whether they are in J1 or in the bush/foreign lands; they all deserve a sea (courtesy of Dr. John G. Mabior – RIP). Wake up! Gone are the days when we were forced by some of those elites to erect their fences and fetch water for them in the hot equatorial sun.

March 20, 2017 (SSB) — Sincerity and Honesty are pre-requisite of attending God present through the veil of sanctuary and coming closure to the present of Heavenly father, but imitation and copycat can create a bearer between mankind and his Heavenly Father. On March 2, 2017, Mr. President Salva Kiir Mayardit declared March 10, 2017 as a National Day of Prayer which had raised and turned some people hair grey. For some doubting Thomas (me included) started to wondered of what the National Day of Prayers will presented to innocents civilian who have been hit hard by “man-man disaster” however, it turned out that the prayer was imitation of Yom Kippur and copycat of some Saint Prayer.

For those who have no idea of You Kippur, let me walk you through it briefly. Yom Kippur is fulfillment of Leviticus 16:29-33  “29This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves[c] and not do any work—whether native-born or a foreigner residing among you— 30 because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. 31 It is a day of Sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance. 32 The priest who is anointed and ordained to succeed his father as high priest is to make atonement. He is to put on the sacred linen garments 33 and make atonement for the Most Holy Place, for the tent of meeting and the altar, and for the priests and all the members of the community.

February 3, 2017 (SSB) — First and foremost, I am here by extending my overdue condolence to the widow and children of the dear brother, friend, shepherd, mentor and teacher to most of us (the Jal wo liec (Dupioc) and Remthi (youth and Sunday-school) of golden days in Kakuma Refugee Camp), The late Rev. John Kuol Lueth Aweer.

This morning of February 2, 2017, I stumbled on this Piece which was written by my long time friend and colleague Rev. Emanuel Agook Kon Kuol and published by Borglobe website; the passing of Dear Mentor Rev. John Kuol Lueth. I was shocked to read that Mr. Kuol is not among us anymore. May Lord Almighty rest his soul in the eternal life?

Dear brethrens and sisters in Christ, especially to all my fellow Dupioc (JWL), Youth and Sunday-School of the good olden days (1990s-2000s) of Kakuma Refugee; you are now the fathers, mothers, shepherds, and mentors of the next generations, I am here by appealing to all of you in the four compass directions and all the corners of the world; wherever the life has landed you to at the moment.

The most dangerous thing one has to do in a ready confused population is to confuse them more

January 19, 2017 (SSB) — The most dangerous thing one has do in a already confused population is to confuse them more; that is what Mr. Acuil Malith Banggol is trying to achieved in this article: The SPLM Philosophy of “Taking Towns to People” is about “Good Governance”, not “Services Delivery”. Most of us are familiar with what former USA President Harry S. Truman said; that “if you can’t convince them, confuse them.” Having read into this pieces leave no any option, but ask a question; is SPLM as party trying to confuse the general public, because, it didn’t carter the services to where they were expected for the last dozen years?

Mr. Banggol, tried to fool us that, “My comrade view about taking towns to rural peoples is not services delivery: Here are the correct quotes:” really? Mr. Banggol, in case you forgotten; I think you should revisit your own Master’s thesis which clearly that “Take education, development, institutions and procedures and services to rural communities. Engage them on deciding on national priorities and wider ownership. This shall ensure the type of society mentioned above. I am committed to contribute to the peace building process in South Sudan with my engagements in the TWIC Olympics, where young people of all ethnics meet and enjoy sports together and in SUPRAID, a foundation for Education, Rehabilitation and Development of Conflict Affected Children.”
