BY: Pastor Paulino Choul Youl, Toronto, CANADA, JUN/16/2013, SSN;
It’s come to my attention that when I was in South Sudan since 2010 before the independence day of July/09/2011 the international community defined that South Sudan became the new nation of 193 Countries in the World.
However, my questions are?
1- Why this Baby of Two years old, doesn’t grow up? Either it’s sick or it’s has got a lack of nutrition.
2- If it is sick why we don’t provide a professional Doctor to identify the baby’s sickness, if it is because a lack of nutrition, from where are we going to get the Food while we don’t even have Food Security storage in the State?
3- Who’s that professional Doctor to treat the Baby’s sickness before it dies?
Your Excellency, Honourables, my Country men and women, Ladies and Gentlemen; that is the day that the Lord has made and given us the new Baby, but the Baby doesn’t have a good health up until now. Are we really capable to raise the baby to be useful in our society?
Some will say yes, and others will say no, and again I guess the baby is affected by Polio and the parents are responsible and accountable to anything happening to that Baby, they should take the baby to the Hospital and get him essential treatment.
My point of view and my experience on the ground in (South Sudan), our Baby is in a bad condition, we have to speed up, otherwise he will die on our hands.
Are we aware that our Country is in a serious sickness in terms of negligent, tribalism, etc… And if it will continues like that, the parents of the Baby will pay the prize (Leaders)…
Furthermore, they are not going to run away with it, the history will repeat itself. I want to tell you something fox, just keep it the back of your mind, there are many things I can say but this one thing I want you to know.
The Bible says in the OT without vision people will perish (means people will die or destroyed). Does the parent have a clear vision?
I myself I spend Three Years and Three Month in Juba City observing the Government system, I didn’t see any one of those members of Parliament raise up the topic of corruption or criticize one of those 75 corruptible in the Government of South Sudan… who’s responsible to account those people and how long the MPs are going to stay idle in the Parliament?
Where we are going to end up? The answer is we are going to end up in a dead end.
Now our Country has become the State of not being respected by other people in the World due to the disgraced leaders.
SPLM. Will the SPLM protect the new baby born Country?
When is this going to happen, is it going to happen in 2015 or before that time? Suppose let’s say if it’s going to be in 2015 I think the baby will die immediately before that time comes, so we need an emergency before he dies… I don’t know who will rescue the baby?
The South Sudan Government is not ensuring the baby’s protection. The implication is apparently in recent case where a baby has been exposed to the place where there is no security, health and food, well, it must be of concern, there is no significant progress for the baby since July 9. 2011. In the least of our expectation, no one wishes to criticize the Government because it’s still a new baby born Country, but that is not the question.
The question is whether or not, the national laws must guarantee the protection, respect the promotion of citizens’ fundamental rights, and freedoms.
Therefore, we need adequate protection mechanism in the whole States of South Sudan and we also need from the Government to provide jobs, equal opportunity to all employees without distinction. And if the Government failed to do so, they have to take off their Jackets and go to the Kitchen, because we need visionary leaders to lead us, not tribalism leaders.
You did mention that South Sudan has only Oil production but I disagreed with that point. We have a tremendous resource in the state more valuable than Oil production.
Why we don’t utilize those resources before the closure of the Oil, but I am not against the closure of Oil? I myself I will say that we don’t have any excuse in terms of development, Roads, Water supply, Electricity and so on…
How many Billions of Dollars (4.2 Blns) has been paid by Donors (US-AID) to the Government of South Sudan for the development, are you aware of that, where is the Money gone?
You don’t know and I don’t know too.
Sir, you mentioned that Tribalism is kind of Disease and we need to cure that, that’s right? Okay here is the point…
Who’s going to bring a good Doctor with a good profession treatment? My friend let me tell you something very important, tribalism will not be treated while our Government System is still based on Tribalism structure.
In April 2013, a friend of mine invited me to the workshop organized by the V/P (Machar) on National reconciliation. So, when we finished from there I had a discussion on the issue with him and I said “that peace will not be implemented by making the workshop and training, but by action because action speak louder than words. Making a change within the Government structure.”
That’s, we need to take the Governor of Lakes State with his commissioner to one of the Equatoria States, take the Governor of Upper Nile State with his commissioner to Western Equatoria State; the Governor of Jonglei State with his commissioner to Eastern EQ State, the Governor of one Equatoria State with his commissioner to Upper Nile State, the Governor of Warrap State with his commissioner to where he cannot find his tribesmen, etc..
These are the real changes, my friends, I get to tell you, where is the clear vision and mission in the Nation?
In order to get rid of Tribalism from the State, the Government needs to do what are mentioned in the above subject; otherwise we are not going anywhere!!! That’s precisely what I mean and what I anticipate to happen for changes, no more or less.
