September 10, 2014 (SSNA) — A dictatorship is a form of a government where by the political authority is monopolised by a single person or a single political entity and exercised through various aggressive mechanisms.
At this juncture, I believe this definition may include the government of the Republic of South Sudan citting the way Salva Kiir exercises his political and military powers to consolidate the nation.
South Sudan is made up of morethan 63 ethnic communities, and these ethnic groups constitutes the country, and therefore, there is rooms for all the various ethnic communities in the country regardless of their minorities or majorities.
Each and every one of them enjoys as a citizen the right to elect and to be elected, expresses who he/she is and participates in all the political activities in the country.
Then,now there is need that all the races in South Sudan come to gather and uphold the nation and or come togather and embrace peace because no single tribe can move the nation foreward alone.
Now there is a wild card in the deck making people fearfull, because this unidentified element is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who think his tribe’s men would keep him in this office he is holding, ignoring, oppressing, torturing and kills the people in the name of his tribe. This is called THE DICTATORSHIP.
Around the globe, many and many dictators’ reigns and passes away leaving behind the power they stole from the people and returns to the people.
Examples of these dictators emerged during the first and months before the Second World War, these were Italy ruled by a Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, and German by Adolph Hitler a Nazism dictator.
Also around the world some dictators still and emerges particularly in Africa. The government of Zimbabwe led by Robert Mogabe, a 90 year old Zimbabwian, Yoweri Kagutta Museveni in Uganda rules the people of Uganda with an iron fist and Salva Kiir Mayardiit which is the new born dictator to South Sudan in Africa are among them.
Mostly, the first two countries and other western nations I did not mentioned had experienced what we are going deeply to experiences today.
After being argued down by Dr. Riek Machar, Salva Kiir resorts to military acts to purges his main opponents led by Dr. Riek Machar within the party the SPLM.
But unfortunately, Salva Kiir added fuel to the flame. He made his own image which has already rooten worse by brutally killing his innocent Nuer people on which he was misled by his yes men. But after all these he has invitted his counterparts in dictatorship to fight against the will of the people of the Republic of South Sudan. But he has got it wrong because one day he will realise that all the ways lead to Rome.
In a very short period of time he will disappear when the people of South Sudan find another way to show him that we are the owners of the leadership you and your yes men enjoying today.
