As for what happened in Yangiri, Ezo, the burning down of the school by itself was an act of people dominated by evil spirits. This building was meant to educate the youngsters who will be the future leaders of WES and south Sudan at large. In a very poor country like south Sudan, where majority of the children continue to attend classes under the shade of trees and in the open, to burn down a school is in fact to condemn that community to perpetual illiteracy and ignorance.
In the past five years following the CPA, WES has no doubt suffered from the wrath of its enemies. Man made insecurity and instability is rampant. But no one can break the real will of these peace loving people. WES will continue to triumph and excel in all fields. It is only a matter of days that this Garden of Eden will reclaim its place as the break basket for the whole south Sudan. And once again the much need security will return to the state under the new leadership.
May the rising emancipation of our people continue to multiple indefinitely and may the love of God and his endless Peace embrace them all. They have wisely used the ballot to make their voices heard. And we hope that all the peace loving people of south Sudan and their friends worldwide will continue to support this democratization process that has started to take root.
We say ‘enough’, to all the insecurities, the instabilities, and the violence. These are times when the temptations of the devil and his agents run high. But our people will do better to keep their sobriety and composure. Victory is certain and an independent south Sudan is eminent.
