The intuitive expression here came as result of statements and reports given by the leaders of government of South Sudan as if there was nothing that happened in the nation.
Irreparable damage and atrocities committed are being denied by the system. Irreconcilable attitude of the government of South Sudan is a stumbling block to any progress in achieving a just peace.
You could observe this in the speech of the minister of information and broadcast, Mr. Makuei Lueth in Nairobi, when he says, “even if some people say that he (Kiir) mismanaged the affairs of South Sudan, he was democratically elected.”
Critical analyses suggested that Mr. Makuei is saying that President Kiir has absolute immunity and had full rights to kill his subjects without question, and nobody should temper with his removal and citizens must not think in this the way to remove a democratically elected government.
Whether the nation is in a hemorrhaging condition or not, Kiir is still the legitimate President, and even if all people are finished in South South, Kiir will remain legal president.
Yes, he will remain a president of heartless and criminal people and animals in bushes that have no qualified leader to lead them except the master of jungle.
Irresponsible behavior of minister Makuei exposed his immaturity in politics and discreditably to be the spokesman of the government of South Sudan.
No one is above the law and the President is not an angel that cannot be reproached and be accountable for crimes committed under his leadership.
The president Kiir massacred his subjects in sight of parliamentarians because they are toothless, for they were supposed to impeach him immediately.
How come the Legislative Assembly allowed Kiir to train special guards from one ethnic group without question, and these guards were the people who caused the genocide in Juba.
Noticeable up this moment no condemnation was made by the Legislative Assembly to challenge what happened in Juba.
The public must know that the folks they elected to represent them in parliament were there in passive and dormant position to protect only their selfish interests, even though the masses who voted them are being slaughtered like chicken.
Look to the statement uttered by vice president Wani Iga that, “no Transitional Government without Kiir,” what does this childish position imply?
It shows that Wani cannot manage the affairs of the nation without his God-angel Kiir. In other words, he wants Kiir to complete the elimination of the Nuer together with Riek so that he may not surface again to claim his leadership position within SPLM party if the worse comes.
This is the argument of a low esteem person who cannot stand alone.
President Kiir shouts from the bottom of his heart that, “I’m still president of South Sudan.” What is a jock without shame from a big man like Kiir who knows the tribulation and agony of war he imposed on people?
Sensible person will know that Kiir is a warlord who trundled to create his empire in South Sudan.
The President should know that South Sudan is in a constitutional vacuum and a State of Emergency that need quick solution before the nation totally collapses that will be counted on his bad records.
The SPLM party does not want Kiir to leave leadership for the sake of peace and tranquility and brotherhood living, despite their belief that the president Kiir had destroy the image of the party world-wide by his poor performances and weak style of leadership.
Painfully, the South Sudan has becomes a dustbin for many dead bodies are rotten in sight of the government. SPLM government is fanatic even if they saw people famished, they never take courageous decision to rescue the situation because the inflicted pain is not experienced by their children.
Another dilemma, some Dinkas seem to see that if President Kiir lost the leadership to someone else, it meant Dinka have lost. This phobia is unrealistic because before Kiir became president, Dinka enjoyed the status quo in the South Sudan.
The deceptive decision made by the government of South Sudan, in which they announced to blind the public that the war is not between Dinka and Nuer, it was the only thing that kept the government to remain in power to this end.
In case if other communities were clear that the war is between the two rivaling communities, they would have quit the front-lines, arguing that why do they die for sake of one particular tribe and the situation would have been different today.
For the South Sudan to surmount the deformation, the leadership within the government, opposition parties, SPLM party, and renegade groups must admit that their problem that need to be addressed by all for the welfare of entire nation, and people must avoid resistance position that said we are liberators.
What I know all southerners had participated in liberation, and no one has a right to blackmail others. The pit some of us are trying to dig by now, all of us will fall into it. Let every organization in South Sudan transform itself into a national entity rather than ethnic entity.
The South Sudan is a deformed nation to be reformed because no ethnic group that will accept constructive criticism from a member of other communities and no single tribe that will challenge its members who committed heinous mistakes.
Let me illustrate this point with few examples, some years back in Juba, one minister was accused of corruption and was put into custody for investigation, but his tribal mob stormed the police station and took the man out by force, and that was the end of the case.
Again, in Wau, a lawyer sentenced a criminal to prison and the family of the criminal had threatened the lawyer by death and he had to escape the place for his life.
This is clear indication that the law is in the hands of powerful people in the South Sudan, and it is only applicable to weak people, for the powerful people are above the law.
Irreversible mentality of gangsters within the government of South Sudan is clear indication that people were massacred intentionally to let them remain in their positions. Indeed, the initiated killers must be protected so that they may continue governing the masses deceptively.
Ibrahim Wani, director of Human Rights in South Sudan, exclaimed that Southerners must rethink that “there is something larger than the individual, something larger than ethnic group and that together they can actually build South Sudan where everybody’s aspiration and dream can be realized so that the younger generation in South Sudan will not again face the kind of catastrophe that today’s generation had faced.”
I think what Wani exclaimed will be attained if nationalism spirit control our daily life in all governmental institutions, because most of departments in Juba and all states are families, clans, and tribe entities that never portrayed the image of the nation or state that should encompassed all citizens.
Sorry to argue that these younger generations were already infected by a virus that is killing this generation unless they discover that fathers are the cause of downfall of South Sudan and they refused to consume the bloody money earned by their fathers.
For most of the offspring are enjoying stolen funds from South Sudan abroad.
The South Sudan nation is too deformed to be reformed because the behaviors of its leaders are off-put and moronic in character.
To reform the South Sudan into a viable state, we must deal with those giants diseases called corruption, nepotism, favoritism, segregation, tribalism, disunity, inter-tribal conflicts and insecurity.
In case if those giants are not addressed thoroughly we will remain deformed for the rest of our life until Jesus come back. END
