Immediately after the independence, president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, differentiated himself with what the country was founded from and slipped into dictatorial way of governing in the newly nation by using degrees to eliminate whoever he does not want and announce the one he wants.
This became a wily tactic to deal with his opponents and a norm in south Sudan. Not only that, it eventually took the U-turn and started his nasty job of stealing 4.5 billion US dollars and signed military deal with M7 of Uganda. The deal was not known by southerners. It was done in secrecy till it revealed itself on December 15/2013 as to eliminate only one tribe in the country.
If that is the intention, as it has been witnessed on December 15, 16, and 17 and so forth, all doubts were erased by this delivered mass killing. Only nerdy folks are remaining ambivalent in this issue.
As the situation became chaotic as it is, Salva Kiir may be happy of killing innocent Nuers for the intention to eliminate them. But let me tell you this, Mr. President, you are not a God and will never be one to eliminate Nuers.
They were created like you and no human being has ever a right to eliminate them as you and your likes may have mistakenly been thinking of.
You were flatteringly wrong and you will bear the burden of what you already initiated even though you brought with you mercenaries to kill your own Country innocent people.
Mr. President, I bet you, it is better to live with them than killing them. In this case, President, wisdom must base on logic and rule of law not on the tribal line.
Because the president lacks logic as proved, innocent Nuers civilians would have not been killed by the president’s thugs. This tragic death happened because this president is unable to handle the country affairs. He does not even know how important the life of human being is.
He poorly thinks on the tribal line that was proved on the December 15, 16, and 17 evident. If it was not so, the innocent Nuers civilians would have not been executed simply because they were Nuers.
A rationalized president could not have done that at all. Only one who is preoccupied by the tribal ideology did it. In such a scenario, would that be a president of the country or tribal one?
As the things remain as such, Mr. President, it would be better to know what the president means than loving the name without doing its work.
It is a shame for you to allow another president from sovereign nation to command our own. This is an embarrassment not only to you but to all South Sudan as a nation because this will remain in the history of the country for ever.
Valuing the power than the country and its people is another important piece of the history. It may not be now. But will be the case in future because the country is now being run by an outsider.
For that reason, is south Sudan a province in Uganda or is it conspiracy by the government to compromise its sovereignty to M7 to kill its own people?
To answer the South Sudan question of being part of Uganda or not, has something to do with the fear of being ousted from the power as it seemed to be the case now.
Yes for now in my view, South Sudan seems to be part of Uganda in theory because everything militarily is being ran or guided by Ugandan soldiers. But remains to be seen practically.
Anyhow, this question will not quickly be erased as long as Kiir regime remains at large. It will remain so, unless Kiir regime is being pressured by outside forces. Otherwise, the mystery of it being a part of M7 country will remain as such for the days to come if not months.
I think this is the fact as the issue is being seen at the moment. It has been seen as such since the second anniversary of the south Sudan independent. Is there anyone that could deny these facts in South Sudan?
Believe it not, only those who shamelessly gave up the South Sudan sovereignty to foreigners that may stupidly say so. But I truly doubted what they may claim this time around because government dollars have been seen in action so far.
But will truly be regretted by the president and his sycophants whose aims is to destroy the country that we dearly love and produce only intransigence in terms of progress in the country issues.
In such uncompromising scenarios, how can the country progress if the president and his aids stubbornly refuse to accept ideas of others? Is intransigence only way forward for the country to prosper? Be the judge!
To me, it does not because country needs ideas of all kinds. But this is not the case in Kirr’s South Sudan. Coming up with different ideas is being translated as the threat in the country that we all love.
So, the supposed government job becomes one man show. That is why South Sudan is in turmoil now and continues to be so, as long as the leader of the country remains to be Kiir. There will be no change in any sector believe it or not.
When we come to the question of conspiracy in my view, this has a lot to do with power of the president of the country. Here is why: Kiir has been frustrated by the political opponents that he does not know how to get rid of.
Because of that reason, he decided to use a looted 4.5 Billion to eliminate his rival. In order to do that, he started compromising his Country sovereignty to the M7 in order to survive.
There would be no other legitimate reason for him to order his guards to intentionally kill innocent Nuers civilians than M7’s backing. The only one on the back of his mind at the time was rehearsal from his mentor to do so. If it was not so, Kiir would have not killed Innocent Nuers civilians. He did so because he knew that he has m7 on his side.
This is the only reason behind conspiracy. When you look at this, do you think this is a national president or tribal one? If he is the tribal as it seems to be, why would anyone from the people that he intentionally slaughters their love once still call him as such?
Is he deserving still to be called as such? To me, he deserves not my horror to call him as such because he proves it right that he is indeed a tribal leader by slaughtering his own people that he may rely on in supposed to be 2015 election in which I now doubted greatly.
Finally, in this situation, however, the world needs to take M7 issue in South Sudan as serious as it.
