It is a sad day all over the country and the world at large as a great writer and thinker, Isaiah Abraham, was murdered in cold blood by his assassins in his residence at Gudele residential area, Juba, yesterday due his numerous political commentaries/opinions he made against South Sudan Government. However, this is interpreted negatively by the inner circle in the Government as outright enemy of president Kiir’s Administration, thus, the National Security eliminated him for good.
The SPLA/M took up arms against various Khartoum-based regimes in 1983 owing to the following marginalization, bad governance, corruption, dictatorship, lack of democracy, imposition of Islamism and Arabism, among others.
We waged the protracted war so as to be free citizens in our own country.
However, Mr. President, there are those who wanted to reverse all these gains by allowing the security forces to kill or terrorize innocent citizens just because they criticize your maladministration in the new nation, for your information sir.
We sacrificed a lot for this land to be liberated from oppressors, hence, we will not entertain your misrule of this nation any further. As a public figure you are subjected to all kinds of criticisms, it could either be negative or positive from ordinary citizens/oppositions.
But, no matter what, at no time would you allow the security forces to take away the lives of innocent Citizens, something even the ICC-indicted President Bashir has never done that.
Our brother, Isaiah Abraham, has been critical of your government and that does not make him as your an enemy or of the state. If there is anyone that has a greater affection for this nascent nation than my great friend, Isaiah Abraham, then I don’t know.
Those who killed him have done a great damage to this country as the unity of people of South Sudan is now in question.
Most of us during the liberation struggle knew you as a wise, charismatic, humble, caring and loving leader. However, the intruders has made you to be out of reach of the common people of this great nation, Mr. President.
My humble appeal to you is to find the assassins of our great late brother, Isaiah Abraham, to be brought to book if you want the unity of people of South Sudan to continue, otherwise the people of Twic East will never trust your government again.
