A Voice in the Wilderness of South Sudan: Women of South Sudan

From: Amal Ajang, JUL/24/2015, SSN;

We the women of South Sudan, shout with one voice in solidarity with our sisters, mothers, and daughters in Juba, Jonglei, Upper Nile, Rumbek and Abyei.

We shout with one voice that December 15, 2013 shall not be repeated in the history of South Sudan again.

We the women of South Sudan shout with one voice, when there is no vision, the people perish and the country suffers.

We the women of South Sudan, shout with one voice:
We are against war, and against those who have started and caused the war.

We the women of South Sudan, shout with one voice:
No to War. No to Genocide. No to Corruption. No to nepotism.

We the women of South Sudan, saw what the war has done to our nation.
When our mothers and aunties were raped, you raped all the mothers and aunties in South Sudan.

When our sisters and daughters were raped, you raped all sisters and daughters in South Sudan.
When you killed our children, you killed the future of South Sudan.

We the women of South Sudan, stand tall and strong, and shout with one voice:
We will never be defeated by rape, killings, destruction or uprooting.

We the Women of South Sudan, have seen how our nation came to existence.
We saw the long queues of thousands of our people standing patiently for many hours, for unique moment in our history, to cast their votes for the independence of South Sudan.

We shout with one voice, saying:
Our independence is our human right.

We cannot divide our Nile and take it to our tribal land.

We shout with one voice:
No to division of our mother land.
No to tribalism in our mother land.

We the women of South Sudan, shout with one voice:
Peace is indivisible, if one citizen is killed; you killed all citizens of South Sudan.

We the Women of South Sudan, shout loud with one voice:
Yes to Peace in our Mother Land
Yes to Healing and Reconciliation.
Yes to Justice

Written by Amal Ajang, inspired by the women in the UN camps in South Sudan.

    Excellent declaration, “United we stand divided we fall”. May God protect our women, children, elderly and the vulnerable innocent citizens.

    Amal your last sentence touched my heart when you said YES TO JUSTICE. Indeed we are in mess to-day because there is no justice. How could one person run away with one cake meant for the 64 or 72 tribes of South Sudan? If our leaders want peace which we all cherish, let them work for justice. Joda Swaka
