It is the toughest issue to reverse and let the president be forewarned in advance. The lost boys overseas have made it clear with their international communities that the president must put the order on moratorium or be null and void.
Let me give you an example that “if your father calls you and gives you pocket money, later on he says that he wants the money back while you have wasted it partially or completely, honestly there will be a great conflict here because you are treated unfairly and you are being ashamed by your own father as you might already have informed your friends for a gathering.”
For those who claimed the nullification of the order, you are completely waging the worst war. Let President Kiir either face you or face us, seriously, because we have been requesting our own state before politicians talk about federal system of governance.
There are other people somewhere in South Sudan who were waiting for the order eagerly, and if the president makes a grave mistake to nullify the establishment order, then the war that will break out will be worse compared to the Machar current rebellion.
Who are now better, those from outside or the people within? Obviously the people within are better because if anything happens in the country such as war among nations or within, they will take up arms and defend their country compared to those who went away for their safety.
The Presidential order establishing 18 mores states is excellent and perfect and we are waiting the president to come up with implementation immediately although the creation of states seems to open up a Pandora’s box since others are complaining to have their own states and others are complaining not to be annexed to another state.
This is not the first time for South Sudanese to do it and possibly let me take you through what happened when President Jaafar Nimeri issued a Presidential decree to divide South Sudan into three regions in 1983.
Equatoria with James Joseph Tombura as the first Governor, Bahr El Ghazal under Lawrence Wol and Upper Nile under Daniel Khot Mathew.
Instead of South Sudanese to applaud president Nimeri on his wise decision, he was flooded with letters of criticism because each and every politician wanted to be governor especially being designated first governor was something not common.
This was the reason why Nimeri imposed sharia law on South Sudanese because he became hostile
and unfriendly with South Sudanese leaders.
Likewise, the same thing could easily happen, if we cry and ask something and later on reject it if given, then any leader in any area of South Sudan can simply impose unwanted law on South Sudan people.
In every website, there are multiple articles condemning president for creating 18 more states. What I personally realize is the same situation that happened during Nimeri regime that those outside the government are the ones that should rule better than those in office.
It has been the practice of South Sudanese people to become politicians even at the age 20 years who cannot manage their own affairs leave alone the multitude.
Many South Sudanese including the writer of this article have observed that the western administration was just aiding and abetting the leader of the SPLM/SPLA-IO.
To create more states has been a public demand for those who might be thinking that this was single-handedly done unless perhaps Riek wanted to do it himself for the purpose of his
We have all members of parliament whose mandate is to represent their respective constituencies. Why many writers do post articles that say the president has made it by himself without consulting the people of South Sudan?
Should there be a need for the president to go abroad and ask refugees on what to do with state affairs?
The writers from outside are just writing their articles to exercise their skills in writing only not because there is some logic in their writing.
What is wrong if you are given consent to have your own state and manage its resources alone?
The writers must need a total transmogrification in their writing to place peace in the hearts of South Sudanese or if not, it is clear that a gag will be placed on some of the writers’ mouths whether inside the country or outside.
