Pres. Kiir sabotages the compromise peace agreement

BY: ELHAJ Paul, NOV/05/2015, SSN;

President Salva Kiir has decidedly chosen to disregard the IGAD-Plus compromise peace agreement. However, the good thing is that the president’s obstructions are reparable if the structures envisaged by the agreement itself are put in place.

This agreement was made possible through threats of individual sanctions and threats of referral of President Kiir and Riek to International Criminal Court. The game of sanctions right from the beginning was a kind of a joke.

In the middle of last year the Troika applied it to enforce the constantly failing Cessation of Hostilities Agreement of 23rd January 2014. It hardly yielded any fruits. President Kiir and Riek continued to slag themselves while the civilians pay the price.

Instead of going after the real culprits who matter like the members of the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE), the Troika wasted time targeting and sanctioning medium size fish like General Marial Chinoung of the presidential guards and General Peter Gatdet of the armed opposition movement etc.

South Sudanese were not impressed and as expected, the sanctions did not make any impact neither on the behaviour of the belligerents nor on the conflict itself. Frustrated with the ineffectiveness, the Troika imposed the compromise peace agreement.

Riek seized the opportunity and signed it without complaints. President Kiir arrogantly declined to sign it claiming it violated the sovereignty of South Sudan. Within a week of his foolery, President Kiir was dragged screaming and kicking to the table to sign it.

When they were cornered, President Kiir and the JCE made their feelings and intention clear through placing reservations on the agreement. The intent clearly was to destroy the agreement.

In their quest to achieve their aim, President Kiir began violating the agreement by attacking the armed opposition in Malakal and Unity state supported by Uganda air force using helicopter gunships.

Fearing collapse of the agreement, US tabled a sanction motion at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) against General Paul Malong Awan, the chief of the army and General Johnson Olony, the leader of the Agwelek forces.

Juba reacted swiftly and it enlisted support of Khartoum to win support of Russia which it did. It is not clear what Juba promised Russia, but it appears something substantial. When the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sat, the Troika were caught unaware by Russia.

Russia vetoed the sanctions with endorsement from Venezuela and Angola. President Kiir succeeded to neutralise the threats of sanctions waved at Juba by the Troika by opening up a new relationship with Russia as their protector.

The Russian veto basically became a manna to the regime in Juba. It turned into the Achilles Heels of the whole Obama strategy to achieve peace in South Sudan.

All of a sudden the regime in Juba on realising it is protected; it upped the ante in the game of destroying the agreement. Without delay it threw another spanner into the works.

This time, it went straight to the juggler of the Compromise Peace Agreement (CPA) by ordering creation of new 28 states to replace the current 10 which provides the central tenet of power sharing in the CPA. Without any doubt, this is President Kiir tearing the agreement in pieces.

This contempt for the CPA hopefully teaches IGAD-Plus a lesson. They have been asking for this type of treatment for quite a long time. All along they covered their eyes, plugged their ears and zipped their mouths as in the famous Japanese proverb: see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil in their dogged support of President Kiir.

In spite of the fact that the man committed ethnic cleansing of his “own people” (Nuer), he was received like a gentleman in Washington in 2014.

Here is a nasty dictator abusing and misgoverning his country and yet he was received in the White House like a successful African leader. What did the host think they were doing? Did they not realise that they were boosting President Kiir’s ego and reinforcing his awful behaviour? That treatment psychologically reinforced his abominable behaviour.

It must be noted President Kiir is abusing human rights and governance in the country worse than President Omer Al Bashir of Sudan. Just a reminder to the Troika, President Kiir is a brilliant graduate student of Bashir’s school of abuse and oppression.

President Kiir true to his nature is repaying the Troika with what he knows best – contempt. IGAD-Plus has not done itself any favour in the whole game of dealing with the government of South Sudan. Right from the start, consistently and persistently they colluded with President Kiir against the wishes of South Sudanese people.

South Sudanese must realise that they have no true friend whether regionally or far afield in the international community. They are on their own and they need to begin to chart their own future without the distractions of others.

This is a challenge that they can overcome. As Ben Okri, the British writer of Nigerian origin asserts, “It is our challenge to change the world (South Sudan) by the force and wisdom of our curious situation and angle.”

President Kiir no doubt is determined to derail the compromise peace agreement bit by bit and piece by piece by using all available means to him.

For instance, he with support of President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda use the Ugandan media, especially Chimpreports to peddle lies and confuse the people in the whole of East Africa and beyond by portraying the armed opposition as war mongers and violators of the agreement.

At the same time the Ugandan media promote President Kiir falsely as the legitimate authority. Just visit the Chimpreport website and read the articles they have published on South Sudan and it would be clear that President Museveni and President Kiir are twin brothers in the business of lies in advancement of oppression of South Sudanese.

As I write this piece, there is a serious development which raises serious questions about IGAD-Plus commitment to fair and just implementation of the already faltering agreement.

Given Uganda’s direct involvement in the war, how can it be a monitor of the cease fire? Will it be able to exercise impartiality? Uganda will not and can not be a credible monitor. It fought and fights the various South Sudanese opposition groups in support of the Juba regime.

Uganda’s military hardware like the helicopter gunships and tanks are used negatively in South Sudan to kill innocent civilians. Africa Confidential in its report of 6th March 2015 under the heading ‘South Sudan: A test of everyone’s will’ confirms that “SPLM-IO has failed to overwhelm President Salva’s forces, partly due to support from Uganda.”

Therefore, the supervisors and the monitors of demilitarisation without emphasise should come from neutral countries such as Tanzania, South Africa, Algeria, Ghana, Nigeria etc. Uganda simply will perpetuate insecurity as it is clearly biased in favour of the abusive and murderous regime in Juba.

President Kiir has already expressed that he wants to destroy the agreement. Making Uganda (Juba’s staunchest ally) to monitor the cease fire is asking President Kiir to swiftly run riot with the whole agreement with the Ugandan monitors’ potentially concocting untruth in his favour.

Its open duplicity with Juba against the opposition should come to an end. Unhelpful statements like the one made by the Secretary of the State John Kerry demanding Riek to go to Juba does not make things better.

His demands have actually baffled South Sudanese to the extent that people now think the US is not clued on. US is underestimating the brutality and the determination of President Kiir and the JCE to remove Riek should he come to Juba without adequate security.

If Riek gets harmed that would be it. We can kiss good bye to peace in South Sudan for a long time to come.

If anything Secretary Kerry’s demands helps in doing Kiir’s job of demolishing the CPA. Which brings us to the last ignored but crucial element of IGAD-Plus duplicity. That is, the issue of “moral equivalence”.

The entire mediation was clouded with this concept to portray Riek, the victim in the same vain with President Kiir. This is very unfair and unethical to say the least.

The crimes committed by President Kiir and the JCE from December 2013 to date on the back of the state of Republic of South Sudan can not be equated to the unfortunate crimes that took place in Malakal and Bentiu in April 2014 in terms of motive, intent and organisation.

It must be remembered one is the government with a wide remit to protect all the people of South Sudan and the other is a ram-shackled force acting in self defence after being targeted and aggressed ethnically by the state.

Even the recently released report of African Union Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan acknowledges this fact. When President Kiir ethnically cleansed Juba of Nuer in December 2013, everybody kept quiet. The international media strangely enough covered the subject scantily and then it quickly went silent.

With such grave crime, South Sudanese expected the world to react instantly as with cases of similar nature in other parts of the world given the fact that the foreign embassies in the capital witnessed the mass atrocities.

The United Nations, Troika and IGAD zipped their mouths pushing the Nuer into a corner. Then in April 2014 the White army (a Nuer militia) deeply angered by President Kiir’s aggression against the Nuer and left with no choice, went into rampage in Malakal and Bentiu killing hundreds of people including fighters of Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) of Darfur in the Sudan brought in by President Kiir to support him in the war.

The UN, Troika and IGAD at the time leapt into this developing story loudly blaming the armed opposition without getting their facts right. The Representative of the Secretary General of UN in Juba Mr Toby Lanzer was all over the place leading the blame.

The same Toby who was mute when President Kiir was cleansing his opponents in Juba all of a sudden became lively and found his voice.

As an observer, I do not agree or accept what the White Army did and I unreservedly condemn it. However, what I am trying to highlight here is the unfairness of those pretending to be upholding the high moral ground.

This same Mr Lanzer failed to adequately speak out against Mr Michael Makuei, the minister of Information who in the same week mobilised Jieng militia in Bor. This militia attacked the UN Protection Camp leading into heavy death of innocent civilians in the camp.

Why was it good for President Kiir’s crimes to be muted and those of his opponents loudly broadcasted with embellishment?

The comparison is totally biased in such a way as to minimise what took place in Juba. This behaviour from the international community can be argued as acts imbued with racism because the people killed en masse by President Kiir were black they muzzled the world media and pretended as if grave crimes were not committed in Juba in December 2013.

The implication being the victims and the perpetrators all being black are ‘savages’ with no value. Therefore, there is no need for any action. Black people’s lives are not worth fussing over as their value is naught. In other words the victims were valueless to the world.

Even the international legal system could not be activated. The very United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has the duty and ability to make a referral to International Criminal Court (ICC) but this was not even considered.

Truly, racism is well and alive in the global structures of peace maintenance. Otherwise, how could the handling of South Sudan case be so shambolic without care for the people?

When President Slobodan Milosevic of former Yugoslavia killed less than hundred people in Bosnia, the world instantly reacted and bombs fell on him. When President Kiir kills over twenty thousand people in less than three days nothing happens.

For instance, both Washington and London assert that President Assad of Syria can not be part of a settlement because he kills his people.

According to President Obama, ‘the situation in Syria (is) “an assault on all our humanity.”’ This is a rational position.

What do you call this? Racism! Double standards! Or is it combination of both? You be the judge.

IGAD-Plus because of its composition should be aware of racial issues which on daily basis disadvantages all black people. Sadly this organisation buys in to this unfortunate approach.

Equally unfortunate are the South Sudanese because their supposed leaders in the opposition rather than articulating these serious issues for attainment of justice they engage in discrediting themselves, squabbles and petty fighting.

In April 2014 after the incident of Bor, Malakal and Bentiu, Dr Riek Machar publicly announced that he had set up a committee to investigate the actions of his fighters. After almost a year of raising the hopes of South Sudanese and the international community that at long last here is somebody doing something right, he dashed it by admitting that he had in fact not done anything on the subject.

How can such leadership be taken seriously? How can Riek claim to be e reformer when he is stuck to the culture of lawlessness? Is this not the continuation of the same culture of lawlessness of the SPLM/A brought to South Sudan?

What chance has South Sudan got with these supposed leaders and the SPLM/A?

While these morons of SPLM in their different forms and shapes continue to let the people down, members of the international community sing that they care about the people.

However, although President Kiir has severely undermined the agreement, it can still be stitched back together and put on track. Of importance IGAD-Plus should reflect on its conduct and do the following:

1) Order Uganda out of South Sudan
2) Avoid the temptation of assigning any role to Uganda in the implementation process, which means it should not be part of the monitoring mechanism.
3) Cease its duplicity in support of the regime of terror in Juba.
4) Order President Kiir to immediately rescind his decree number ‘36 Establishment Order’ by making a public announcement over the media.
5) Strongly remind President Kiir of his obligation under the Compromise Peace Agreement so he does not start to play games with the Chairman of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission. Any mischief should be tackled head on.
6) Request UNSC to refer President Kiir and the JCE to ICC for the atrocities of December 2013.
7) In line with the Compromise Peace Agreement, President Kiir and Dr Machar having been identified as suspects in the AUCISS Report , must not be allowed to take part in the Transitional Government of National Unity. Their respective parties can choose other persons to represent them. As President Obama of USA and Prime Minister Cameron of UK have categorically said “killers” can not be part of the solution. Therefore, neither of the two qualifies for participation in government of national unity.
8) Ask the newly appointed Chairman of Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) Mr Festus Mogae to exercise his powers to reign in on the abuses of Juba. Mr Mogae should also arbitrate on the issue of the 28 states decreed by President Kiir as his say is final in all areas of disagreements according to the Compromise Peace Agreement.

    ELhag Paul,

    You always write words of wisdom to the South Sudanese people in general, and to the Jieng in particular. Unfortunately, trying to explain the vitality of embracing nationhood and patriotism to the Jiengs(slaves hearted-Dinka) is nothing more than trying to teach a 10-year-old child a calculus problem. You will definitely lost the child at X.
    Big problem, Right !
    The Jiengs(slaves) warlords, the Incompetent, tribal chief, power-hungry-greedy, and traitorous, Killer Kiir, and Malong Awan, Kuol Manyany, Marial Chinuong, Garang Mabir, Bol Akot, Salva mathok, plus JCE(Dinka council of national resources looters-Ambrose Riiny-Bona Malual-Makuei Liar),undeniably don’t want the recently signed peace agreement between the SPLA-IO and the Juba’s genocidal Regime succeed because of their taphephobia (abnormal fear of being buried alive) in Juba by the victims of this war. Only trephination(cutting/drilling holes in their brains) would convince them that the Freedom Fighters’ Movement-SPLA-IO is not planning to imitate or copy the Jiengs’s catastrophic tribal mindset.

    Elhag,
    (As an observer, I do not agree or accept what the White Army did and I unreservedly condemn it)….Really? You re part and parcel of ethnic cleansing (in the cyber world) ….You could have done much more damage than what you claimed to condemn, if only you have the means of doing it. How could you (unreservedly condemned what White Army did) and mockingly find some justification for their actions (deeply angered), (pushed into the corner), ( left with no choice)? Is this double-standard or hypocrisy?

  4. BILL KUCH says:

    Elhag Paul,
    You are claiming the international community as not being fair in whatever they do and you yourself got no fairness in you. You are for the rebel and your arguments base on one side of your interest. So, if you need fairness then you must started with you. According to you and Dr. Riek, Nuer people got killed by the Dinka and nobody on your side killed nobody not even a fly. Now, Ugandans are out now and therefore, you go right ahead run over the government forces. Also, you must know that they do unfairly sometimes, if you want to get it fix then all killers of whatever reasons must be addressed and be brought to justice equally. Depriving others because they have your support is an impunity. The killing of innocents accountabilities must start from eightieth, nintieth, and the present in order to apply punitive measures once and for all. I know you are up for the job and so do I.

  5. False Millionaire says:

    Brother Alhag,
    “The crimes committed by president Kiir and the JCE…cannot be equated to the unfortunate crimes that took place in Malakal and Bentiu”,ofcourse as in the context of the freedom of expression,u have your right to assert such a statement.
    But it’s a shocking surprise to see u drowing the line to mean lesser and greater magnitude in crimes involving human lives.
    Secondly, to wonder as,”…how can Riak be a reformer when he is stuck to the culture of lawlessness”,adds up to your first assertion to convince the IGAD-plus members among whom are the americans that RSS leaders,u included,in the government as in the opposition are bunch of irresponsible thugs.
    In consequence,let’s bear to be patient for a little while and it may never be a surprise to see no body talking about the compromise peace agreement any more.
    With the valueless opposition floating in the wind,the US in particular would jump into the same bed with Kiir,twist his arm and force him to concede to the US interests in RSS before making of him a water boy for life like his counter part Mouseveni.
    Your eight years of experiences in the UN force many me included to see in u a sort of a big boy.
    It shouldn’t take the brain of a nuclear scientist to drow the conclusion that human lives and tears of grieving mothers becouse kiir has kilt Riak’s kinsmen and raped an equatorian virgin lady would never move the line to force the international community into a hurried due punitive action.
    The world is made by the game of interests in particular economy and money to be made.
    For that,the end justifies the means!!!

      Dear False millionaire,it was Dr.Riek Machar who has destroyed his own future and his own life. Now it seems his health is deteriorating and his eyes too are closing.I think he should stay in exile.

  6. Peacemaker says:

    Mr. Elag Paul,
    Most of the points you have raised in your argument are facts, however your suggestion for Dr. Machar and dictator Kiir not to be part of the TGNU is not in place. With out both of them participating in the Government means we have no agreement to implement. After all with out their blessing this agreement would not have been signed and the only alternative would have been to place the Country under UN Mandate. Give them chance, the agreement has provisions of checks and balances.

    Dear all Al Haag
    need help. He is frustrated and do not know what to do in life. What he want is total removal of Kirr from power. He has been campaigning for that since. The second thing is he wants another killing of our people while he has kept himself and family hiding in UK. He tries to hide his evil hatred against other tribes in S.Sudan. So to be frank to him and Riack if they want to remove our president they should hire Khartoum. The killing of civilians in Bor he does not acknowledge because they are implementing the policy of their master Omer El Bashirs. He hates Uganda because their project of islamazation of S.Sudan has been denied. Al Haag taught the world would just support them blindly. War without a vision. It is only to destroy our country to implement Khartoum claim that Southners do not know how to govern themselves that is why he claims he has not witnessed killing of people in that scale since the war with Khartoum. The death of four million Southners in thAs szpe hands of Khartoum he does not acknowledged. Their act of being Khartoum agents is witnessed in the way they conduct their war. Burning villages institutions like Universities hospitals and killing innocent people. He has not condemn their acts. So Al Haag is writing on behalf of Khartoum that is why he hates Uganda. El Haag thought Obama and David Cameron are short sighted people like him. They know our problems comes from Khartoum using people like them. When president Museven visited Khartoum in October Bashir dispatched his presidential plane to carry his agents Riack and the group to Khartoum. The key figures of Splm in opp Joana Adam Chromoss Jas Rambgo El Haag when you read their article all praises our enemy the Arabs in Khartoum. We need to watch out
    All of them have been talking of plan B the gullet SPLA forces should be in maximum alert to deal with any eventuality. We should no underestimate these words coming from the splm in opp. Secondly we heard they are stockpiling weapons so we should not sleep. This time if they start they should be pursued in Sudan.

    Hatred and Greedy of power are bad. Dr.Riek Machar will get recover very soon.

  9. deng hanbol says:

    Dear Elhag Paul, I think it’s a ludicrous to suggest that Dr. Machar must not be part of the up coming inter me government. It’s also, irrational from you to think that Dr. Machar and Naath warrior (White army) are suspect. If not because of Nuer soldiers, Dr Riek. Machar would have been killed in Juba by the Dinka militates and UDPF. Dear Elhage, I’m quite sure you know that Naath are well known for being gutsy tribe. Therefore, the coloured woman in the White House called Susan Rice had convinced M7 and Darfur an, Nubian and Malik Agaar of Blue Nile to help Dinka so that to kill Naath people to reduce their number. When the allies have failed to overcome Dr. Machar and his tribe men, the same half white and half black woman convince the IGAD to impose the so called compromise peace agreement. Why she did that? The answer is simple she knew that Naath troops in the long run will prevail or dislodge the Dinka regime in Juba. Any way, we the Nuer people are determined to overthrow the Dinka kingdom whether with the help of Equatiora and the rest of 63 tribes or not.
    Dear bother, I want to assure you that I’m a huge fan of your articles.

  10. Defender says:

    Hage Paul,

    Your analysis is good; however, Russia did not veto the resolution to sanction Paul Malong and Olony. Russia only asked for delay in applying the sanctions on both generals. The resolution that was later passed by the UNSC was only abstained by Russia and the rest of none-permanent members. This is because Russia accepted the terms of the first resolution that said if the parties to the conflict continue in their old ways, potential sanctions will be applied. This actually has led to Kiir’s government to coil. Now that the threat of veto has been taken away, Juba is still sitting on pins and needles. The economic pressure and the near collapse of the patronage system is actually forcing the government to stop being arrogant and is trying to implement the agreement in spite of the rhetoric that they are spewing in public.

    The establishment order that was supposed to be effected on November 2, is now on hold, due to lack of foresight and underestimation on Kiir’s part of the mechanisms of the agreement and the force behind it. The referral of the decree to the parliament is one example of where Kiir found himself caught with his pants on the ground and he is trying now to find ways to pull it up without causing him embarrassment. This referral will allow him to save face and wait till the agreement comes into force and then he will be absolved from the shame of revoking his own ill-advised decree and face the wrath of his blind supporters that seems to just follow him without understanding that leadership is a tool that is meant to invoke common good and not tribal control.

    Since the order and the request to amend the constitution are still at the committee level, the chance that it will come for review or reading at the assembly level will continue to push the timeline for implementation near December, a time period that the Government of Nation Unity is supposed to be effected. As such, even if the amendment bill that has been tabled before the specialised committee is completed, amendment must go through several readings and amendments before it is put up for the vote.

    As well, the legal challenge that has been put forth be the political alliance need a fair hearing from the Supreme Court whose head has come out in support of the agreement. This has put him in a collision course with his down destiny as the guardian of the constitution. If he sits on the bench to adjudicate, he must show impartiality (a tall order in this case) for a chief justice who has soiled his name and that of the third pillar of government for his tribal appeasement.

    All of these compounding facts has put the president, with his limited foresight, into one bundle of soiled legacy that Jesus would not be able to cleanse.

    Dear brother, most of Nuer intellectuals think that Bari tribe in particular and Equatiora at large have betrayed Dr. Machar and his Naath for their to along with Nuer troops or their reluctant to save the life of innocent Nuer who were massacred in Juba in the midst of Equatrioa. By the way, we forgot what happened to us in Bari City, instead we’re poised to forge an alliance with Equatoria and the rest of 62 tribes to get rid of Jaang kingdom.

    no body will dragged to a senseless war of worriers. Peace lovers
    and nationalistic people will not destroy their own country because of some few people who collude with Arabs. Anyone who need power should come through vote but for people who have their hidden plans we will show them during election. No warrior can defeat the people’s will how strong he or they may be. Continued fighting will lead those who are interested in fighting to be isolated. We are progressive people looking forward to develop our country but not to continue living like wild animals.

  13. GatCharwearbol says:

    Dear Paul,

    I find myself to be agreeing with you on the exclusion of both Dr. Machar and sultan Kiir case. It is feasible for healing and reconciliation of our people of South Sudan, particularly the Dinka and the Nuer. I fully understand that Dr. Machar is a victim here, but for the sake of our people, it would be really mature and humanly for Dr. Machar to give up his aspiration for Presidency. He has done enough service for the people of South Sudan already and the history will not forget him. Sultan Kiir has squarely forfeited his right to rule this nation by ordering the killing of innocent Nuer civilians. Had it not been for the interest of American which sees Kiir as their gateway to get their interest in South Sudan, he would have been out of the Presidency already. But thanks to American and their interest.

  14. False Millionaire says:

    Mr Gatcharwearbol,
    I am surprised to see u pinpointing on the the americans as having interests to keep Kiir in power.
    That is a total contradiction to what I thought as american hand in our crisis with an objective to bring Dr Riak to power inorder to be able to drive out the chinese from RSS and take exclusive economic and political place after.
    So far what I have heard over and over again is that,the scenario of the events of 15th December 2013 was programmed to last two hours of hell fire.
    But as this has dragged on far beyond,it must be the reason that has brought every one down to earth.
    If anything,the americans have understood the impossibility of putting Dr Riak on the helm of power in Juba by Klashnikov.
    So as they are pragmatic by nature in their dealings,they have come back to make the door open for a possibility of working with Kiir but only under the condition that Kiir must concede to them what they would have obtained had they succeeded to put Dr Riak in Power.
    In brief,there is no love than pure interests in american affairs.
    Don’t ever tell me that u have good intentions with fish when u put food on a hook and throw it in a lagoon to bait the fish becouse your true objective is to capture it,kill it and eat it to satisfy your hunger.
    That’s exactly what americans are!!!

  15. GatCharwearbol says:

    Dear False Millionaire,

    “There is no love than pure interests in American affairs”. This is an honest truth which I can’t dispute. Of importance to know, American interests can be achieved in one way or another defending on the criticality even if it means using force. American is the powerful country in the world and no nation can dare to get in its way. If they honestly want Dr. Machar to take over the presidency, it would happen regardless. But it is not what they want. If anything, they would like Dr. Machar to disappear which they are capable of doing, but not in their first priority list at the moment. When the White Army captured Bor and were advancing toward Juba, President Obama himself called Dr. Machar and threatened him not to recognize his presidency if he overthrow Kiir. Tell me, is this someone who wanted to replace Kiir with Dr. Machar? Be the judge. Uganda was deployed through Obama’s blessing. Museveni just don’t want to tell us the truth. Open your eyes, young man or lady.

    False Millionaire,

    The evil corporate (US) don’t have friends, that is very true. We are going to bomb the evil corporate America to smithereens. The evil corporate America wanted changed the elected government of South Sudan by coups with their usual Riek Machar puppet/stooge, and through their usual evil juus media propaganda.

    That is not going to happen. The government of South Sudan has been told time and time again to remove the UN so-called UNIMISS and the so-called US special forces in Nzara , town of western Equatoria. But the government of South Sudan is not doing it.

    Riek Machar is an evil corporate America puppets/stooge to change the South Sudanese man to an evil white man, arabs and their evil juus sphere.

    That is not going to happen under the sun. We are here.

  17. survior says:

    while it easy to simply place blame; at times shifting from ones position and venturing to the other side to see things from a different angle comes in handy, when it comes to understandings others.
    having said that, with regards to Kiir’s shortcomings as a leaders. he is as advertised. as far as leaders and leadership is concern. Kiir would lack in all measurable of a leader. however, with our situation in South Sudan. simply saying that it is a complicated situation does no justice to how extremely complex the situation is. as such, IGAD, USA, TROIKA and AU are treading carefully. they know everything, with regards to the personalities involved.
    while some people (Alhag Paul) would like to think that simply taking Kiir out and putting in Riek would be a panacea. the fact is, the two man are two sides of the same coin, for the suffer from the same disease.
    while some of us are so blinded by their distaste for Kiir so bad that they forget that, Riek was also party to the mess. he (Riek) was not too long ago part this organization, As the vice, Riek was tasked with the building of institutions, urban planing and peace and reconciliation. to date, he (Riek) doesn’t have a single achievement to show. just like everyone in the organization, Riek was focusing on looting and enriching himself at the expense of the masses. Additionally, Riek’s has also carried out grave human rights violation.
    with these being the case, anyone with an iota of sense would know better than to explicitly express their vote of confident to either Kiir or Riek. As such, this is the very reason why regional powers, i.e IGAD, AU, EU, TROIKA and the US are devious. and with Kiir being the one already in power, its easier to simply try to work with him for the sake of peace than to try to oust him in favor of someone who is also equally responsible for the mess.
    Again, while for one reason or another, it is easy to simply line up behind and throw your support behind one figure. the fact is, as far as peace and tranquility are concern. we can not and will never attain them with these two thugs at helm, whether as partners in the “Compromise” Peace Agreement, or with one solely leading the nation. It needs to be admitted that these two men are cancerous to our nation. they are unacceptable to masses.
    again, the only way forward is for a transcending leader to rise among us. someone the whole nation can stand behind and support. someone with a value system that reaches far beyond ones tribe. Someone who is articulate and of high moral standing.
    so instead of lining up behind these worthless leaders and brutalize one another, lets just leave them to battle it out themselves and lets instead join hand in building these burned bridges among ourselves and in the process build our nation up.

    folks, it is obvious that riek machar is now a desperate man, he has lost the war to oust kiir (not in the false coup that many have alleged in december 2013). kiir has found a lot of ways to render the many agreements signed in addis ababa, arusha, etc., useless. the members of parliament (95 per cent splm) are scared of losing their jobs and pledge full allegiance to kiir, they rubberstamp any laws proposed by him. 28 or more states are here to stay and kiir would go ahead to appoint loyalists or accommodate returnees (g10, splm-io). igad is toothless and the un sanctions would not bite, just take a look at mugabe, the dude is in his 90s and has survived western sanctions thanks to south africa, other neighbours and china. this tyrant (kiir) is going to hold on to power for another 10 plus years. lookimg forward to arbitrary arrests, disappearances, lack of due process, lots of propaganda on government media, lack of free press, and lots of stuff that are the norm in a police state! am scared and might piss in my pants.

    Salva Kiir is very stupid in South Sudan and all over the world.
