January 22, 2014 (SSNA) — President Kiir had been the President of South Sudan for a decade, and the way he is leading people lack intellectual dynamism, good capacity of reasoning or analyzing issues of the national interest not individuals wills that had destroy the destiny and the integrity of the South Sudanese through the way he had been advocating for tribalism, corruption, breaking rule of law and human rights in South Sudan. Above all, his education background had been too low; many people have regarded him as very shallow minded in Intellectuals world globally. Instead for him to seek for good advices from well informed persons, he is just been misadvised by a fake legal adviser whose qualifications was not recognized by the legislative last year in 2013. What a nation???? God almighty rescue my people from darkness.
I don’t mind whether some people will take my articles wrongly, but in my nature as the person, am ever open and will still remain like that no matter what other people will think about me, the bible said, “Tell the truth and you will be set free”. If we don’t tell the facts that are happening on the ground, who will come from heaven and begin advocating on our behalf? My role is to advocate for the voiceless and condemn the violations of human rights that had been happening in South Sudan under the primitive and disorganized government I ever see on earth.
To come to the point, yesterday 21th of January 2014 there was a statement from the President of South Sudan General Salva Kiir Mayardit where he said, UNMISS is running a parallel government in South Sudan which people globally have viewed as a desperate speech ever and other term it as an indication of preaching tribalism and hatred among the South Sudanese people. How can a person with guns be allowed to enter United Nation Mission (UNMISS) Compound in South Sudan? Have Kiir and Makuei Lueth forgotten the genocide they have committed to the Nuer in Juba?
However, the number of intellectuals youth, women, girls and elderly people who were killed for no good reason in Juba from the 16th,17th,18th of December 2013, by soldiers loyal to Kiir, their bloods will liberate the South Sudanese from dictatorial tendencies, tribalism, selfishness, corruption within this year 2014 base on my own perception and prediction. For those who were in Juba the capital city of the Republic of South Sudan when Nuer were massacre , they will not deny the fact that, Kiir Mayardit, killed those who voted for him in 2010 elections wrongly without bases. They were killed due to the facts that, they were Nuer and the man who opposed Kiir in Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) was a Nuer, which is a very wrong perception to be advocate for, unless those who are having mental disorder can say those ill advices. Not all Nuer that are supporters of Dr Machar in South Sudan, the reasons behind their killings need good investigation and treasons to be charge against those culprits who orders soldiers, that have lead to the killing or eliminating one tribe in South Sudan, which to me cannot happen in that way.
I was very confused on the 17th of December of 2013 in Juba when I was captured in my house in Juba, when soldiers took me with my brothers, people line up (Dinka) in Jabel Kujur Market in a big line just looking at the people who were killed and the people like us who were captured alive due to the wrong ideology that was in some Dinka minds that Nuer want the leadership by force which is not the case, others were celebrating throwing words that were inciting violence.
When my hands were tied behind, people were saying Nuer people should see with their own eyes why they support Dr Machar always? When I heard that, I ask the person who was saying that word, I asked him who told him that all Nuer are the supporters of Riek Machar? I also assured him of not provoking the situation in the Country, because the Republic of South Sudan should not and will not belong to one particular tribe, there are almost 62 tribes or more if am not mistaken.
However, looking at the way innocent lives were send to heaven by Kiir Loyalists, raping Nuer girls and women, forcing people to eat human flash , taking civilians properties like Cars and many more in Juba because of the name Nuer, will lead to the end of the regime in Juba very soon base on my own judgment as an individual. The level that Mayardit had reached will also number his days because if he was suppose to have 70 plus years to be alive but now God might reduce them to below that expectation due to the atrocities that he have committed in the year 2013 December. Who can say, those who were killed might not call for the immediate death of some leaders in South Sudan? Who can say, their death was good in Nuer society?
In conclusion, it is our participation through advocacy that will let us free from Constitutional crisis, tribalism, nepotism and too much corruption that is happening in the Republic of South Sudan.
Therefore, I will end with the quotation which says, “you cannot blame the mirror when your face is distorted” from Rick Warren ;therefore President Kiir should not kill Nuer and he still calling himself the President of South Sudan and also should not blame people of fighting his dictatorial tendencies.
