November 21, 2013 (SSNA) — Rightfully, many argued that the definition of corruption is the abuse of public power for private gain, bribery, misappropriations of goods, nepotism, favoring of a family member for job, or contracts. Subsequently, influencing the formulation of laws or regulations for private gain is a common example of corruption. But above all, Lack of integrity or honesty, especially, susceptibility to bribery is certainly key components of corruption.
Nevertheless, the attendant historical punitive consequences meted out to corruption in South Sudan’s government officials are nothing, but a replica of sham and shame that takes place in the Ministry of Information by comrade, Makuei Lueth. It’s was both amusing and amazing when we learned that the government is in total/ massive man hunt for violating of the basic principle rights of expression, by bullying the media houses in a brought day light.
But, don’t take it from me. Here’s a portion and part of the most outrageous statement by the incompetent minister, Mr. Makuei Lueth during his recent press conference with the journalists:
“And if necessity requires, we may behave in the absence of a law until the law comes. If you want that, we will do it. If you want us to operate with you in the absence of a law, we will do it. Because all these freedoms, all these rights we gave you, are not yet. And even if they come out, we will be treating you according to the law. But now we are treating you according to the constitution which is supposed to be clarified by the laws. So any misuse of these provisions will not apply”. (Sudan Tribune, Wednesday, Nov. 11/07/2013.)
You’ve got to be kidding me! Sorry, Mr. Lueth, you have just been caught red-handed.
Yes. He " Mr. Lueth" was absolutely right, because, “Ci beny doot” the unknown secret security Organs are just waiting for the signal from the president and you disappeared.
To date, with compulsive determination, the so-called ‘ our leaders’ continue to trivialize the madness of the implementation of a dictatorship system, financial misappropriations and the long-term harm and hurt they unleashed on the destiny of South Sudan … this wildfire menace and monstrous cascade continues unhindered. Loose behaviors of some dare devils in power now have become a dangerous dance- step on a free-way to a volcanic conflagration threatening to gulp up the beautiful, but, beleaguered country and spit it out down the abyss of history.
Here is the joke, and its goes:
In a political rally for an election race, a candidate was asked by someone in the attendance: “Sir, can you explain to the audience why you eat our money?" The candidate politely and sarcastically responded: " You idiot, I didn’t eat your money, I used it."
Dude, two mistakes never make it right.
My friend, leadership is not magnetic personality that can just as well be a glib tongue, it is not making friends or influencing people’s that flattery. But, leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of person’s performance to the higher standard, and building of personality above and beyond its normal limitations.
Therefore, it’s our solemn citizenship duty to lobby our masses for a change of this tyrant regime, and establish a permanent constitution and laws that shall protect the whistle blowers (the journalists and reporters) from monster Lueth and his likes. Beware; the court of law is not a court of justice. Because, justice is incidental to law and order, it may be blinded, but, has very sophisticated listening.
This is my prospective!!
