As an ordinary southern citizen, I would like to ask the elders to answer this simple question, because I am sure that nobody can prepare himself for a tribal war and do not know where his fighting force is.
As people who are opportunists, the Dinka leaders, they want to use their followers from other tribes to fight for them the next tribal war which may occur by the illogical implementation of the newly created 28 states.
According to my own understanding, the known obedient Dinka fighters from other tribes may not be interested in the coming future, to fight for Dinka as the case before, when the tribal fighting was political between the government and the rebels.
Those who were on government side may not take that side this time if anything similar to the first happens, so there will be a shortage of Dinka fighting force from other tribes. The previous war, in essence was tribal as well, but curtained by the government to be a political one.
For your information, you the disgraceful elders, any coming war in our new nation will be different from the past one, because some fighters from your followers especially the soldiers whose lands are affected by the creation of the new 28 tribal states, may change their minds.
I think you know them well. This is not a secret revealed to you by an agent, but I am only alerting you that, your good friends and followers, may side with their relatives in future, because this is a question of “to be or not to be.”
They may leave you alone to fight your own planned tribal war, because it is a matter of land and not politics, ranks and salaries.
Even within your Dinka community, some wise Dinka from your fighting force may not be interested to fight for the annexation of other’s lands. Many may keep only their ancestors lands and may not have that satanic ambition for other’s lands. This big group of wise men from our Dinka brother plus your stooges is there and even you the Jieng elder’s council members know that.
So, carefully please deduct from your future fighting force some fractions from these sizable groups of wise Dinka and your former stooges from other tribes.
I would also like to bring your notice that, Ugandan, Rwandan, M23 of Congo and SPLA-North forces may not come to your assistance; because your future war, will be totally a tribal war in spite of your false claims to be the bigger and stronger tribe in the country.
So, if you are still insisting to annex other’s lands, please look for alternative stooges before time, because when things will fall apart, you may not convince them to fight for you as it is the case now.
Believe me or not, I am sure many non-Dinka stooges who were fighting for your government, may not take that option if anything unfortunately happens again in your hijacked undeserved kingdom of south Sudan.
According to my own simple analysis, if anything went wrong again in our beloved country, one of the following cinereous will be the option:-
1-The country will totally collapse. There will be no central government and H.E Salva Kiir Mayardiit will be the first and the last Dinka president for the united south Sudan.
2-Our beloved and united new nation will be divided by war lords into its former known three regions
3-The UN may take the responsibility of taking care of governing our young nation on behalf of us all, for some years in order to put anything in order again and rebuild it.
So, if one only of these three scenarios happens, what will be our benefit as citizens of south Sudan and yours as elders who are mature enough to know good or bad?
Why you the elders don’t keep our country united, instead of making it a Dinka kingdom despite the existence of other 63 tribes?
My advice to you the elders is to convince some members from your council to abundant working only for the sake of your tribe leaving the whole nation of the beloved south Sudan. Concerning the south Sudan, no tribe can be able to register the ownership of this country by its name.
If so, please be a good example for wise leadership and not for what took place before and continuing now. To any leader in our country, you cannot destroy the whole country in order to build your tribe through corruption, tribalism, nepotism and creation of conflicts.
If new states are needed in some parts of the country, let it not be mistakenly generalized to the whole nation. You can create or divide according to the interest of the people who need it.
Your misleading expression about the people’s demand for the 28 states is false because what is known to everybody is the federalism and not your tribal 28 states.
To the UN, TROIKA, IGAD and AU, please don’t leave us alone to destroy this young nation intentionally through our misused powers. Give us a hand by helping us to work only for the implementation of this last peace agreement because it is the only option now in the country.
If not, one may assume that you are all interested to take the responsibility of this young nation after its collapse.
