Pres. Kiir, Resign as you’re unfit to lead South Sudan: Letter from Canon Clement Janda

Open Letter: General Salva Kiir Mayardit,
Presi.dent, The Republic of South Sudan
Juba, dated Feb/20/2018.

Dear General Kiir Mayardiit,

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. On the occasion of this Lent season, I have chosen to communicate to you on the important issue of managing or Country.

As we are all aware, you have been our leader for 13 years, since July 2005,. As it is very clear, the country is worse off now than when you started.

There is no chance of the cuntry getting better than now as it’s descending deeper and deeper into the pit.

For this reason, I am appealing to your Christian conscience to do what brave leaders do just like President Zuma of South Africa did and the Ethiopian Prime Minister.

Please, my brother in Christ, RESIGN NOW AND LEAVE another South Sudanese to take oer the leadership of our Country.

I appeal to you not to listen to the likes of (ministers) Michael Makuei and Martin Lomoro, who would rather tell you “things are well” when in fact nothing is going right.

I wish to remind you that you have never enjoyed a cordial relationship with Dr. Riek Machar right from the beginning.

So, no miracles will happen to allow you share power with him. So both of you must give South Sudan the chance to move on without any of you.

Since in your scheme of mind, any appointment must be filled by thinking of a Dinka first, a Nuer second and may be a Chollo third, if only people like Natanial Oluak were alive.

(Do you recall a joke you told me in January 2010 at Yei Air Field, about appointment of a Commissioner for Abbiyei?

You said, “The Jallaba did not want a Dinka or a Nuer to head the Abbiyei Commission.”

If only Nathaniel Oluak were alive, they might consider a Collo! So, you asked me if I was the angel that the Jallaba would accept?!

Since therefore, any appointment must be given to a Dinka first, please pick a good and upright Dinka and hand the reign of power to him/her.

Please, do not give it to somebody who is anti-social, very selfish and is near you.

The world is watching to see whether you are capable of salvaging something of your legacy as the leader who brought independence to South Sudan.

But now is the time to give leadership to somebody who will bring peace and prosperity to South Sudan.

I trust that you can take that bold step during this Lent season of 2018.

Sincerely in Christ,

(Signed)
CANON CLEMENT JANDA
Comrade-at-Large

    Dear Canon Clement Janda,
    It’s belatedly pathetic that you are finally speaking out after many years of inexcusable political blindness, sinful acquiescence and abetting this tribal and murderous regime.
    As a man of the Holy Book, and someone much older and more educated than Kiir and his tribal henchmen, you should have kept some moral and political distance from this well renown murderer, aka, president Kiir, and this mafia called the SPLM.
    Some of you also have your hands tainted with the blood of our innocent citizens murdered under your watch by Killer Kiir as you willingly participated in offering prayers during those Satanic meetings of the SPLM/A mafia Inc. In all those years you were immorally abetting his terror regime.
    I was with you at Loka Intermediate School in 1962 and witnessed your outstanding leadership potentiality when you and two others (Reuben and Muktar) were arrested, tortured and imprisoned by the jellaba during our school general strike and our eventual flight to refuge in Uganda.
    Please, Reverend, now it’s your moral responsibility to persistently keep speaking out against this abominable regime of terror until it’s totally removed and it’s leaders sent to prisons or are hanged for their egregious crimes against our ever-suffering people.

    Wishful thinking Mr. Editor, Kiir is not going anywhere as long you think that your tribesmen will put him out of power. They will not do it on the ground, only on the webs. Removing Kiir need all of us as South Sudanese, But if you blame Dinkas as they are the government just because Kiir is a Dinka. You will be writing about removing him until you start going a way one by one like Nuer rebels.

    Why do we always write aimlessly without thinking twice ? is South Sudan the same with South Africa and Zimbabwe, ? if he resign , the power struggle that will befall this nation will be the worse than what you can imagine . you call for peace and later elections if you want better nation not resignation

    Kiir has no peace in his mind pastor. I am sure if someone takes over from him there will be a peace in some states except some of Jeing states that always remain violence. We need our Equatoria land to be governed by us as we can imitate Somaliland which is peaceful when some places still violence.
