A Special Tribute to the Women of South Sudan on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2014

By Margaret Akulia, Canada

March 10, 2014 (SSNA) -- As sustainable peace continues to elude South Sudan, this International Women’s Day March 8, 2014, let us all take time to pay a special tribute to the women of South Sudan.

You are a very extraordinary group of women because you are the glue that is holding South Sudan together during this incomparable cataclysmic war instigated by gangsters who masqueraded as heroes.

South Sudan’s gangsters are parochial nincompoops who have no regard for you the precious women of South Sudan that is why they have been murdering, raping and committing many heinous barbarities against you while prowling South Sudan but take heart precious women because the actual heroes of South Sudan are on their way to rescue you and South Sudan.  

South Sudan’s actual heroes are illustrious warriors who protect and defend women instead of murdering, raping, hurting and preying on them the way the loathsome gangsters of South Sudan do. The actual heroes look out for the best interests of all South Sudanese and everyone in the world.  They look out for the greater good of you the precious women of South Sudan. Unlike the gangsters, South Sudan’s actual heroes possess morals. They are in our midst and they will soon throw out the gangsters of South Sudan so that you the women of South Sudan can begin to heal from the ignominious and abominable things the gangsters meted out during the carnage and lawlessness they created.

Thank you for continuing to look after your families and communities in spite of the fact that South Sudan’s gangsters are totally oblivious to your extraordinary value to the country and besmirch you instead. Thank you for the gargantuan strength you give freely to South Sudan. Thank you for being the pillars of South Sudanese Society.

Without you, South Sudan would have collapsed by now. It would have come crashing down on everyone’s heads including the heads of the very gangsters who are now destroying it. These swindlers tricked you the women of South Sudan and other upright South Sudanese into believing that they were heroes during the war to wrest South Sudan from the clutches of the devil when nothing could be further from the truth but despair not because the actual heroes of South Sudan are on their way to rescue you.

No group of women in the entire world is quite like you the precious women of South Sudan. No group of women has the capability to continue exhibiting the strength you do while experiencing the shocking forms of human rights violations you are being subjected to by the gangsters of South Sudan.

Even though you have endured the worst forms of human rights contraventions at the hands of people who are supposed to protect and treasure you, you continue to stay strong for your families and your communities. For that, the people of South Sudan and the rest of the world are grateful. 

We individually and collectively bestow the highest honour on you the women of South Sudan because there is no soul on this earth that would have continued being the pillar of South Sudan Society while enduring the ghastly things you continue to endure from South Sudan’s gangsters. Honour does not come easily but you the women of South Sudan have earned it.

Distinction and remarkable strength are the preserve of a few people in this world but you the women of South Sudan have earned accolades relating to those attributes and now have a place in the Guinness Book of Records. It is not a simple thing to hold together a society dilapidated by gangsters but you the women of South Sudan have successfully done that against unimaginable difficulties.

Gifted with exceptional wisdom, ingenuity and compassion, you the women of South Sudan hold the key to the future of South Sudan if only the gangsters of South Sudan could listen to you and appreciate you instead of maiming you but take heart because the actual heroes of South Sudan know your extraordinary value to South Sudan and your capacity to take South Sudan to unprecedented heights.

Endowed with extraordinary beauty and resilience, you the women of South Sudan are the best gift South Sudan has ever received from the most High God. You give families and communities strength under the most difficult circumstances. You provide stability when foundations are about to collapse.

You teach and model compassion so that future generations don’t follow in the footsteps of the current gangsters of South Sudan. You cheer communities on when they are about to give up. You inspire young people who have their futures ahead of them to be the best they can be.

You make arduous situations easier to bear. You shield South Sudan’s children from traumatic experiences even when it means choosing to endure these traumatic experiences in their place. Without you we can only imagine how frightful this war which has been instigated by the gangsters of South Sudan would have been to the children we hold so dear - the future of South Sudan.

Honour belongs to you the women of South Sudan because you are a very unique and special group of women. We salute you as you continue to hold your families and communities together during a war that is not of your making. We salute you as you continue to hold South Sudan and prevent it from collapsing.

You have endured trials that are indescribable but continue to be pillars of South Sudan Society. We salute you as we also remember the women who were brutally taken from us by the gangsters of South Sudan. We can’t wait for a time when South Sudan honours you properly for who you really are – beautiful, gallant, resilient, intelligent, wise and all the other great things you bestow on society.

You make life a bit more bearable for families and communities even when that means placing yourselves in harm’s way. You are always eager to protect others and willing to sacrifice your lives. The war that has engulfed South Sudan is monumental but you continue to save lives even under hard-hearted opposition from the gangsters of South Sudan. This you do even when everything seems to be failing and falling apart.

You the women of South Sudan are unifying forces because you are nurturers. You are amicable, non violent, organized, neutral and intentionally loving. You love all South Sudanese and respect for life is non-negotiable for you.

South Sudan will soon harvest the fruits of your efforts even though everything is simmering around you at the moment because the actual heroes of South Sudan who know your value will prevail over the gangsters. You the women of South Sudan know in your hearts that reconciliation is possible among the people of South Sudan and so do the actual heroes of South Sudan. You know that a new and different alternative and approach for South Sudan is in the horizon if only the gangsters would stop clawing into South Sudan and let the actual heroes and you the women of South Sudan dig it out from under the rubble the gangsters created so that you can begin rebuilding the country.

You the women of South Sudan look out for the best interests of the nation of South Sudan. You are full of love and love all South Sudanese regardless of their tribe, religion and region of origin. You continue to pray for the best even as the war instigated by the gangsters of South Sudan rages on.

You the women of South Sudan long for a peaceful South Sudan and you and the actual heroes of South Sudan will be the ones that will pull South Sudan from the abyss. Long live you the revered women of South Sudan! You are role models of the highest order.

Who Killed Hero Dr John Garang?

By: Jesus Deng Chaui

March 9, 2014 (SSNA) -- Late Dr. John Garang de Mabior (June 23, 1945 – July 30, 2005) was a Sudanese politician and leader. From 1983 to 2005, he led the Sudan People's Liberation Army during the Second Sudanese Civil War, and following a peace agreement he briefly served as First Vice President of Sudan from July 9, 2005 until his death in a helicopter crash on July 30, 2005. Late Hero Dr. John is a member of the Dinka ethnic group, Garang was born in Wangulei village in the upper Nile region of South Sudan. An orphan by the age of ten, he had his fees for school paid by a relative, going to schools in Wau and then Rumbek. In 1962 he joined the first Sudanese civil war, but because he was so young, the leaders encouraged him and others his age to seek an education. Because of the ongoing fighting, Garang was forced to attend his secondary education in Tanzania. After winning a scholarship, he went on to earn a B.A. in economics in 1969 from Grinnell College in Iowa, USA. He was known there for his bookishness. He was offered another scholarship to pursue graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, but chose to return to Tanzania and study East African agricultural economics as a Thomas J. Watson Fellow at the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM). At UDSM, he was a member of the University Students' African Revolutionary Front. However, Garang soon decided to return to Sudan and join the rebels.

There is much erroneous reporting that Garang met and befriended Yoweri Museveni, future president of Uganda, at this time; while both Garang and Museveni were students at UDSM in the 1960s, they did not attend at the same time. In 1970, Garang was among one of the batches of Gordon Muortat Mayen's soldiers, the then leader of the Anyanya liberation movement, sent to Israel for military training.

Garang is known for his hard working and unselfishness since he started the rebellion SPLA/SPLM in 1983 his plans to bring freedom to south Sudanese was uncertain the struggle was not easy for him and his colleagues but he finally achieved his really picture he painted when taking up arm against the Muslim north.

Citizens were not aware of his sudden death, everyone was hoping that he will live longer to complete his mission but the twenty one years of struggle turned into twenty one days in the office of the first Vice president in the Republic of Sudan and the President of the Autonomy South.

Many South Sudanese were eager to know what robbed the life of a man they belief was their Moses?

Here is the list of the suspects and the reason why he was killed.

1. Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, Kiir was the closet man to Dr John Garang in the liberation of South but many doubts him after the signing of comprehensive peace agreement kiir did not appreciates the amnesty Garang gave to high learned comrade who left the movement for some few reasons E.g Dr Riek Machar, Dr Lam Akol and many others plus some rebel top leaders who were better than him on Educational qualification he was thinking these people will one day killed his dream of becoming the top leader if anything happen Garang his boss.

Salva disagreed with Garang few months after CPA when Garang decides to bring Dr Riek Machar Teny (the man who deserve to be the deputy of Dr John) to be his deputy or Nhial Deng Nhial because he can sell the ideologies of the party SPLM because Garang see incompetency in him ( Kiir).

Kiir threatened the people who were in the meeting by saying if anything of such happen then i will wage another rebellion on you people, he left the meeting and promises not to associates with Garang until he change his idea of removing him .

Garang was confused on what will be his next plan to bring his bush friend back and i know most of you remembered very well the speech Garang read in Rumbek praising kiir mayardit as the next leader and that was the place many people start building trusting on kiir but we all failed to understand that Garang was using the gathering to wash off head kiir from the previous discussion.

Five months later, the world was shocked to learn the death of their son but my personally concoction tell me Kiir was involve in Garang Death and that why Garang appear as a ghost every time to kiir and some of government top official his soul are crying why they killed him and ate the food he cooked and forget the poor citizen of South Sudan, my concoction is damn right.

Junubin see some animal skins and horn on the resting place of our hero that left many people in suspecting mood something must be wrong somewhere while others thinks the horn symbolizes Mabior Atem Aruai Garang,s father, one day i visited his grave with a mission of knowing the reason why those ritual were kept at Garang Rest place i was lucky enough to meet Madam Rebecca and Mabior Garang at Dr John Garang mausoleum. Nyandeng was happy to see me again since Nakwathom, she shed tears and get hold of me tightly and tell me Wende molen was assassinated and that why you see those horns there on his resting place in order to stop looking after his killers.

I wonder whether those horns were brought by Bashir, Museveni or Western World we do blamed of Garang death but she told me Garang killers are within South Sudan and i finally concluded last year when Nyandeng attacked government on both citizen TV, Newspaper and occasions accusing kiir of dictatorship with only one statement "i feel lonely because my husband i hold every night on bed is gone but junubin are still suffering am dying inside" Is there anyone aware of what was killing her inside. To people of wisdom Nyandeng knew a lot of thing on our hero death but she don,t want to reveal to south Sudanese citizen because that can bring another mess and i see always a heart of a mother.

Take a look on people like Aleu Anyieny and Telar Ring Deng who decided to investigate Garang death some years back they are now best friend to Kiir, Aleu was not shaken on his mission he nearly let the cat out of the basket and also Telar, the question remain why do kiir make people who happen to tell the world about Garang Death became his best friend? Even i know i will be his best friend soon because i have talk about Garang death but that is the matter of the fact.

Garang family knows kiir killed Garang and that the reason why they became government opposition but they are afraid of telling the truth on our hero death.

Museveni and kiir end the breath of our leader and you can see on their current mission in south Sudan but one day truth shall come to forth.

A critique upon Kiir’s narrative on 15.12.2013 event

By: Gatkuoth Lok

March 9, 2014 (SSNA) -- Kiir’s intentionality to remain president for life, the essence of the current crisis in South Sudan caused Nuer and Dinka believed they are enemies to each other but they are not other than Kiir mass-massacred Nuer in Juba, a gesture partly telling Dinka Bor, him and Makuei Lueth, the information minister have thoroughly avenged on behalf of Bor Dinka against Nuer as put by Weirial Puok Baluang, a political commentator and partly telling us to win back all Dinka democrat politicians rallying behind Dr. Machar to join their tribesmen and demonstrating it a fight between Dinka and Nuer that might stop other countries of benevolence to help Machar’s forces seeing them tribal forces that might finish each other but the reverse is true. 

1-President Kiir’s project

What is it that thing I call Kiir’s project? In the below paragraphs you will get the answer to the captioned asked question.

It is only the ordinary people who do not understand the essence of the current crisis in our beloved country South Sudan politics, but to many intellectuals of diverse professions and objectivity it is very clear to them and they do understand the nature of Kiir’s project. The project is for president Kiir to remain president for life. And this is never simple as long as Dr. Machar and his political allies remained committed to propel democracy into existence. This has to risk Kiir’s life and his posterity if not only his tenure in office for having opted to commit what is politically called necessary evil.

Having pondered upon the hypothetical imperatives of clinging onto presidency for Awan Chan benefits exclusively, Kiir realized that it presupposes non-existence of Dr. Machar and his subordinates. This truth of fact and reason caused Kiir to think of eliminating Machar or else failure to deadly do that he has to finish Machar‘s supporters whom he erroneously perceived as Nuer to actualize his life presidency.

This brings us to know the reason why the December, 15 2013 incident did occur purposefully to gradually institutionalize dictatorship in South Sudan. This is unthinkable and unspeakable to pronounce the aforementioned incident a coup attempt; it is not at all a coup but an assassination attempt in kernel as many authorities agreed.

2- A Coup attempt is a misnomer of what happened on 15th Dec. 2013, Juba-South Sudan

It must be made clear that what happened in Juba-South Sudan on 15th Dec. 2013 was not in any form a coup attempt rather it was an assassination attempt by president Kiir himself against Riek Machar and his supporters as previously alluded to.

It is a pity that President Salva Kiir Mayardit did not use his right and certain conscience morally speaking to know the grave contradiction between killing fabricated coup plotters and mass- massacring of over 17613 Nuer civilians in Juba according to NODETT. If Kiir had committed himself to do away with coup plotters he would not have mass-massacred Nuer civilians in Juba.

We can now make a strong inference from our argument that President Kiir, epistemologically speaking knowingly mass-massacred Nuer whom he mistakenly perceived coup plotters in order to weaken his antagonist, Machar not because Nuer people can be found in any way part and parcel of the fabricated coup attempt but because he wanted to entrench dictatorship whose institutionalization presupposes Machar elimination and Nuer annihilation by his thuggish Dootku Beny and Uganda mercenaries (UPDF).

Then Kiir is illegitimate president who killed his civilians. Hence he must go to where he belongs.

Thank God that Machar narrowly escaped this evil plan of Salva Kiir. And that Kiir’s project of staying in power and totally destroying Nuer will not become true but the opposite is true. This is the bottom line; it implies that Kiir is fully liable on Nuer genocide he committed.

Well, we can also prove that Kiir has been working out against his political rivals and his potential rivals to pave his way to achieve his life presidency or else implicating Machar falsely would be his final resort in order to have two of them out of the potential interim government in the country. Otherwise his priority is institutionalization of Dictatorship in the country, a thing seen unbecoming.  

Back to Kiir’s project of committing genocide is never new. This is true. If you can recall what president Kiir did to Shulluk Nation when Dr. Lam Akol rejected Kiir’s administration because of its dictatorial susceptibility almost all Shulluk suffered under Kiir’s regime beginning in 2009-2014. This objection of Kiir’s regime by Akol caused Chollo people their very lives. They were badly killed in Owuaj with a death toll that angered everybody in South Sudan and has been characterized as genocide. The same thing happened to the late George Athor Deng’s clan in Korfulous, Pigi county Jonglei state, the same to Nuer of Bentiu when some rebelled in 2010 after elections a lot of people were killed by the SPLA under the directives of president Kiir. And the killing of Gawaar and Laak Nuer in Kaldak and Pom el Zaraf by the SPLA respectively, amounted to more than 2500 victims. Finally Kiir almost finished Murle tribe mobilizing the SPLA and all tribes of South Sudan against Murle people and killed a lot of them.

Worse of all the above mentioned groups have already undergone cooptation policy being used by Kiir now leaving behind their pursuits with exception of David Yau Yau’s faction relatively. This cooptation policy is epitomized by Gen. Ulony, a leader of one of the said groups from Chullo who has the problem of land with the Dinka community in Upper Nile state. This dear Ulony has been given some appeasement titles and some oil money to give up his goal that killed a lot of Chullo people, shame on him. Moreover Dr. Akol Ajawin is no exception here for he turned pro –dictatorship politician who wholeheartedly contributes night and day to concretize life presidency for Kiir? This is a great insult to Akol’s intelligence for he is known countrywide of supporting democracy in the country, even little children know this.

The burning questions here are, if people have to die simply because they support their leaders are Machar’s subordinates only Nuers in South Sudan and had to undergo the paradigmatic killing as the above groups? Are those groups not aware of divide and rule policy and cooptation policy?

Of course, not only Nuer are Machar’s supporters since he eloquently answered this question during his interview on the VOA, that he has good followers from Dinka, Shulluk, Equartoria and the rest of our ethnic groups. The second question I left to the co-opted persons to answer, particularly Lam Akol, the co-opted chairman of the SPLM-DC who has compromised his party’s political ideology: democracy for greener pastures he is inaccurately anticipating.

If you ask yourself for the reason why Dr. Machar got a lot of supporters across the country, the answer to this question is simple and plain. That it is true that Machar has a huge support across the country simply because his political ideology is democracy and his system of government is federalism opposed to Kiir’s political ideology which is dictatorship and his system of government which is unquestionably unitary system.

As such Machar has got an unbelievable support all over the country. This is the very reason why criminal Kiir is now using the language of isolation telling South Sudanese to remain spectators since he and his cohorts preach to South Sudanese that the problem is a problem between Nuer and Dinka at the beginning of the crisis though diminish now, which is nonsensical and absurd, for methinks, the problem is between the aforesaid ideologies and government systems supporters struggling of which ideology and government system shall be actualized in the country.

And actualizing dictatorship in the country is tantamount to Kiir’s project of remaining president for life about which he is systematically killing supporters of his rivals; take George Athor Deng, Gatluak Gai and Lam Akol are quintessential specimen.

Now for Kiir to stay president enticed him to mobilize 63 tribes of South Sudan against one ethnic group, the Nuer with pride and he has also to mobilize hungry Eastern African countries led by Uganda to weaken Machar by cleansing the Nuer people in the country. This is done at the watch of Nuer politicians like Riek Gai Kok, the present minister of health, Manasseh Magok Rundial, the current speaker of national legislative assembly (NLA) who can rightly boycott this scheme. Not to mention James Kok Ruek, Duer Jakok and the tamed Nadia Arob of Unity state for we cannot blame them simply because they are memorizers and myopic in politics. We shall turn to this campaign against Nuer later.

To this point we cemented our thesis on proving that what happened on 15.12.2013, in Juba South Sudan was not a coup attempt rather than an assassination attempt by president Kiir himself against Dr. Machar. And the meta-genocide on Nuer by Kiir is what Kiir does always to any members of a tribe of his rivals as afore-explicated. Next is Kiir’s campaign against Nuer Nation. Why doing that? That is what we shall see below.

 3-Kiir’s campaign against Nuer

During the Communistic Sudan people’s Liberation Movement youth league rally in Juba led by Akol Paul, Kiir disparagingly criticized Rebecca Nyandeng de Mabior , the widow of the late John Garang of revealing to the world that Salva Kiir, has mass-massacred Nuer people in Juba by ordering 15000 non-SPLA locally known as Dootku Beny ( local kinsmen armed, to execute any task given them by the president ) to cleanse any Nuer they got and get in Juba . Kiir boasted of the excellent job done by the 15000 Dootku Beny when they combed the Nuer in Juba and controlled Juba. The man of lax conscience Kiir Mayar continued saying that what these Special Forces did was good for they guaranteed his throne, adding that there is no crime of recruiting them since they got a job to do.

President Kiir called on all 63 ethnic groups to fight against Nuer, ( a thing he did to both Chullo and Murle people ) . He did not limit his campaign against Nuer Nation, he reached out to groups of Sudan rebels notably; JEM, SPLA-N, SRF, and South Sudan militia groups such as SSLA also known as south Sudan liberation army led by Nguen and his brother Bapiny Munytuil. In addition to that, president Museveni of Uganda has decided to join the accomplishment of the project of eliminating the Nuer people in South Sudan at the invitation by Kiir.

Museveni said he has to help Kiir remain president for life. He then went and mobilized the so-called great lake countries whose soldiers are now identified by their identity cards in Ugandan military uniforms whenever caught by the pro-democracy forces known as SPLA in opposition.

Now there are two things we must know. On the one hand, ethnic cleansing is not acceptable according to the international law. On the other hand non-intervention into other sovereign state internal affairs and non-interference into territorial integrity is important to observe based upon the same law. Therefore; any country of goodwill should now see the necessity of saving lives of their fellow human beings who are undergoing ethnic cleansing in the hands of notorious and good for nothing countries like Uganda and her likes. It is justifiable for Western countries of concern to help us force out dictator Kiir before it is too late. 

The key question is what is Kiir’s goal to wage war against democrats in the country? The answer is that he badly needs to cling onto power for life. If that is the case, why call it Nuer-Dinka war? Let’s see. 

4-Not Nuer versus Dinka rather Democracy versus Dictatorship

Beginning with a question that reads is there anyone saying South Sudan crisis is between Nuer and Dinka? If yes, you are wrong and if no, then you are right. In my answer to one of the BBC journalist who subjectively asked me whether or not Nuer and Dinka will still live side by side as brothers and sisters in this Republic. My answer to the question was that absolutely ‘yes’ we will still live side by side as brothers and sisters. Why do I say this? Because Dinka did not agree to fight against Nuer nor Nuer agree to fight against Dinka as simple as that.

And having a look at political divide in the country we can observe that some political allies to Dr. Riek Machar like: Gen. Alfred Ladu Gore, Rebecca Nyandeng, Pa’gan Amum to mention a few are not from Nuer ethnic group. At Kiir’s camp VP James Wani, Riek Gai Kok, Dr. Akol Ajawin, the three are not from Dinka tribe all of the two camps members are from our diverse ethnic groups.

If the fight now between Kiir’s pro-dictatorship forces and Machar’s pro-democracy forces is the intensification of the political fight between Kiir’s camp and Machar’s camp then it is not in any way a fight between Nuer and Dinka other than between the aforementioned camps. Therefore it is a serious mistake to implicate our people Dinka and Nuer in this political crisis.

Machar’s political ideology is democracy and Kiir’s is dictatorship. Therefore; the fight is between the democrats and dictators, not between our good Nuer and Dinka. Hence Kiir is killing Nuer civilians that they are staunch democrats who work night and day for propelling democracy in to being to de-institutionalize dictatorship. This qualifies Kiir as enemy to democracy and hence, he is enemy to all South Sudanese and the world. 

Now that Kiir is doing away with Nuer People because they are deeply democrats who support democracy but what of other South Sudanese who are staunch democrats as Nuers; are they immune from this victimization against democrats? The answer is that Kiir has his project to cleanse Nuer in the country that is why he is mobilizing 63 ethnic groups of South Sudan and Uganda with her allies to accomplish the genocidal project against Nuer.

Will Nuer give up? No, Nuer will never ever think to give up what killed their people. Nuer will continually fight as they did for Self-determination 1991 until they win the war over dictators. This is the second phase of struggle as Dr. Machar clearly put it.

This will be the time our dear South Sudanese join us like they did during South Sudan referendum. All of us shall sing the song for all democrats winning over perplexing dictators. This shall be the emergence of the Democracy we aspire for, the State of South Sudan.

The claim that our people are fighting against each other is deceptive and misleading, however; Salva Kiir himself tribalised what was known as political differences in the SPLM party and turned it to be seen as tribal fighting by targeting Nuer people in Juba.

The criterion set to kill all Nuer in Juba was whenever found a Nuer by tribe then you qualified yourself to die in all categories of professions for no pastor, no member of parliament, no students, no women, no children, nothing, all who were identified Nuers had to die.

By doing so Kiir speciously thought that, Nuer people would immediately go to kill Dinka people such that politicians rallying behind Machar might leave him to join his camp, fortunately that did not happen as Kiir’s expectations.

5- Machar winning over Kiir

South Sudanese know very well that the answer to their suffering is both democracy and federalism in South Sudan and they too know that the only driving force to bring these ideals to existence is Dr. Riek Machar Teny, the only hope for us all. Whereas Kiir is working out to copy Museveni’s way of staying in power until his son succeeds him is adding fuel to fire.. This is not liberating for South Sudanese as may be the case to Ugandans because it is enslaving people to the core.

In Kiir’s dictatorship the system of government is unitary system in which top positions are given to Warrap state. Look to qualify of any important work in the course of Kiir’s good nine years in office you must be from Kiir’s state to be assigned to do important task, say to be security director, top businessman or woman, president of the judiciary to mention but a few any vital post holder has to be from Kiir’s area of Awan Chan Dinka.

Such a practice intrinsically caused South Sudanese to seriously hate Dictatorship, unitary system, cronyism, nepotism and other vices that presently have qualified President Kiir no president that he must go.

To sum up this discourse, South Sudanese know very well that they cannot be deceived twice for they have been misled to follow unity of Sudan for almost 22 years that they in the end left to Malik Agar and Yasir Arman in the North when Dr. Riek Machar’s vision of secession (misunderstood for many years) and Dr. John Garang’s vision of unity of New Sudan were exposed to South Sudanese to choose the fate of their life. The choice resulted to Machar’s vision of secession-South Sudan Independence and left Garang’s vision of the unity of New Sudan to North Sudanese supporters in the North continuing with their struggle.

This implies that all South Sudanese of different walks of life this time embrace fight for democracy realization knowingly and deliberately.

1991 incomprehension of demonizing the SPLM or SPLA split must not repeat itself. For it became salvific after our breathtaking Independence July, 9. 2011. This is the case why Machar commands a huge support among the citizens knowing for certain that Machar’s political ideology is democracy which embodies justice that contains the rule of law, rights and equality all of which are working only in a democratic country. Machar guaranteed that our anticipated country must be a democratic country where the rule of law prevails, accountability flourishes and rampant corruption is radically reduced to nothing and the rest of the vices being done away with and diminishing. This must become true. It must become true as long as we unanimously work to force out of power the Gogrial Dictator Salva Kiir to consequentially and breathtakingly establish simultaneously democracy and federalism in the South. This is our faith to profess in our struggle to freedom. We all settled assured to fight against dictators.

God bless south sudan!
