Unfortunately, the claim that South Sudan is one nation, one people, and a nation which respects democratic principles under the leadership of dictator Salva Kirr who is asking citizens to defend its constitution and his legitimate government is misleading that only cheap and unfocused people can buy it.
President Salva Kirr has been behaving undemocratic since he became president of South Sudan transitional government. The fact that people were silent when he manipulatively imposed himself to lead in South Sudan interim transitional government with the help of his notorious bloody thirsty friend Lt. General Koul Manyang who supported him to establish an autocratic regime in that new country, does not mean he is smart and that people didn’t know what had happened but they were only interested in peace and success of an independent South Sudan.
Kirr falsely signed Juba Declaration to bring all rebel groups operating outside SPLM main stream to Juba under his leadership in bad faith and has abused some of these peace loving forces which he thought he lured them to his totalitarian government.
Having confidentially assumed to have consolidated himself into power among the various groups under his regime, Kirr exposed his dirty face during Sudan’s general election when he started to divide and discriminate his party members between SPLM loyalists and non-SPLM loyalists in which he denied the latter their democratic right to context in elections of president, governorship, and parliament.
Despite the fact, most of these so called non-SPLM loyalists were more popular in their constituencies than the president’s hand-picked members, to say the least.
Even when the non-SPLM loyalists decided to run in that election as independent candidates, the same Kirr with his personal army undemocratically rigged in his favor all the elections of presidency, governors, and members of parliaments who were ready to defend and protect his position instead of the country.
It is the combination of self-imposed president together with some of his puppet governors and members of parliament who were rejected by their constituencies, that gave birth to the most corrupt government the world has ever seen in the 21 century, as tribalism, nepotism, insecurity, robbery, and terror to keep oppositions out of their club because the government was designed to please the president and not for social service delivery for country’s citizens.
Since GoSS was designed to protect and defend president and not the provision of social services delivery to people; personal enrichment, extravagance, luxurious life style, and competition of wealth accumulation among government officials became the order of the day while the country sunk dip in poverty, illiteracy, diseases, hunger worse than during Arabs regime because the corrupt government squandered billions of dollars meant for nation development.
Although we cannot sympathize with ministers and parliamentarian who helped passed nation’s unpopular constitution that centralized government and empowered Kirr with unlimited powers to appoint, dismiss, dissolve entire government as he likes, the way he has been treating them is unacceptable as he’s falsely using his illegitimate constitution to justify his autocratic actions and failures.
When the appointed ministers and other junior government officials started to rise up demanding for democratic reform in the system in order to promote justice, equality, freedom, development and economic prosperity which is overdue, president turned against his former hand-picked government officials and accused them to be responsible for government shortcomings and its inability to perform and provide social service delivery to South Sudanese for last 9 years.
Come on, Mr. President, when the electorate did not vote for all the governors and members of parliaments you forced on them, do you think they were stupid?
No, our electorates knew your failed ministers and members of parliaments were incapable to deliver them services that is why they rejected them not to represent them in public offices in the first place.
Beside, how can vice president, ministers, and other government officials be responsible for government failures especially when the appointed officials were hired to praise president even on wrong things if Kirr and his supporters are serious?
All over the world, the president is the only person responsible to the success and failure of his or her government because he’s expected to have the ability to employ the right people in the right places and is capable to identify those unable to perform to either improve or be removed.
Because president is ignorant about politics and who believes in dictatorship since he became president, now he made these unwanted government officials heroes in their constituencies.
The assertion that December 15, 2013 incident is a coup led by Dr. Riek Machar Teny who wanted to overthrow a democratically elected president is cheap as those who are preaching it.
If Dr. Riek and his group were power thirsty as the accomplished Kirr robots want us to believe, he would have fought president when he deprived his wife’s, Dr. Angelina Teny governorship election victory in 2010.
The same way General Alfred Lado Gore would have fought Kirr when he denied him his democratic victory to bring development to the nation’s capital and the future of South Sudan independence would have been uncertain.
But since these patriotic democrats and revolutionaries were not greedy and bloody thirsty like president who’s ready to sell or destroy South Sudan because of power, they kept cool for the sake of our country’s independent state which our forefathers fought for more than hundred years, that’s why they let Salva to intimidate and bully them before people’s independence.
It should be made clear that the current political crisis in South Sudan did not start on December 15, 2013 incident which cost 20,000 lives of Nuer tribe in Juba when president Salva Kirr private militia massacred them from door-to-door as some people within government would like to mislead citizens but it began since president Kirr took power during South Sudan transitional government in 2005.
We condemn president’s Salva Kirr desperate undemocratic attempt to use December 15, 2013 incident which his private militias massacred 20,000 Nuer tribe people in Juba alone as a way to sideline his political opponents in the country as he has been doing in the last 9 years.
The massacre of peaceful demonstrators in Wau, the murder of Equatorian police officers in Yambio, the killing of one family in Yei, and the genocide that took place in Komiru, and other atrocities done in the country by the president’s forces of evil, are inhuman acts that he needs to account for and face justice.
Forget your bogus argument that you’re a democratically elected president. In fact, you are not and will never be the type of president South Sudanese have been looking for in the last hundred years.
The people who voted for you are your Warrap Dinka. Voters in the other states in the country, were forced on gun point to vote for you. An action which de-legitimized your presidency in South Sudan up to now.
Stop your empty talk of peace and national reconciliation and healing because you and your government are immoral, bloody thirsty, mafias, thieves with devil hearts who have no regard for humanity other than your greediness.
If there’s any peace and national reconciliation, that initiative will only happen in your absence.
The concept of “ One Nation, One People” which you don’t know its meaning, doesn’t fit you in any count. All the government officials you sent to all ten states were Dinka and some few Nuers who are Dinka puppets.
These two tribes were not representing South Sudan other than their two tribes. So don’t think you can any longer use two tribes at the expense of other 62 or more tribes.
You better rewrite your slogan to divided nation, two people/two tribes, as it is seen in your SSTV campaign.
By all account, Kirr is problematic by nature who’s allergic to peace, unity, democracy, justice, freedom, equality, law and order as he controls the executive, judiciary, military with his Warrap Dinka who are causing chaos in South Sudan in it’s everyday-ness.
Anyone who thinks South Sudan will attain peace, unity, democracy, justice, freedom, equality, dignity, development, law and order under the disgraceful leadership of dictator Kirr who ruined our country since 2005 without shame and now trying to deflect his weakness to someone else as responsible to our national problem, must be joking.
The proposed interim government without Salva Kirr is the only way forward for peace, unity, democracy, justice, equality, freedom and above all national reconciliation and healing and South Sudan prosperous future which dictator Salva Kirr is unable to establish since the day he manipulatively and undemocratically took power in South Sudan interim transitional government.
To conclude, Kirr, his mafias and his mercenaries in the country which they set on fire, must not think they will get away with the war crimes they have instigated as usual and make people have confidence in him to led anymore.
This time, it is either him with his Warrap Dinka or a peaceful South Sudan without Kirr; that’s why it is important for him to resign for the interest of the national bleeding in broad daylight. END
