On my side and as someone who holds his African beliefs and heritage at a very high esteem, I continue to believe that our peoples’ blood that continuous to soak the soil so dear at our hearts, this blood has the ability to redeem us and as such I no longer doubt that the day is soon to come .
South Sudan now has a semi-autonomous government to boast of as many are already doing now. But although this government is for real my dear folks, we have a huge load of our own shortcomings that is causing us all this staggering leadership and the bad reputation always associated with it. We have all that it takes to build up our capacities in the different fields, but of course we can only achieve these through an accountable and responsible government. Those we have now in office are our own people. We do not disown them, but their performance over the past five years has never been satisfactory even by the most primitive standards. Now Kiir seems to say some sense when he asks for “Vote for Change”. That change can only come through the ballot and putting a new face in office.
When confusion steps in, then only a genuine change can help. And the more we hang with the confused, the more we become confused ourselves .If it was from the northern opposition or the SPLM/northern sector of Amum and Yassir or the main southern one of Salva and Riek , the confusion they have so far created is indeed of the greatest magnitude. We can only remain in this confusion if choose to, which explains how confused we have become. Or if we are still OK, there exists a window to salvation. There is a real chance in these elections to quit with confusion. Vote change.
