South Sudanese should be happy for President Salva Kiir Mayardit choosing for Mr. Wani Iga as his Vice president. This move is wonderful because of two reasons. It’s a great move toward democracy and development. Mr. Wani Igga’s choice for Vice president is the only move towards democracy and development because he understands how to use the parliamentary constitutional powers wisely.
As we have seen it in Telar Ring Deng’s saga, where the parliament under his leadership came out strongly rejecting the nomination of Telar Ring Deng as the minister for Justice.
It’s also the best choice for vice President especially when our president is now behaving like a Chicken that eats her own eggs. When you have the Chicken that eats her own egg, the only way to stop that chicken from eating her own eggs is de-beaking (de-beaking is the cutting of a chicken’s beak) to stop from it eating those eggs that could become the future chickens.
President Kiir has done this without knowing it and our people should be happy about it than attacking Igga as being a weak man and lacking seriousness.
“Igga is considered by some as a weak leader who lacks seriousness in governance and there are concerns his appointment may be rejected as was the case with the former nominated justice minister, Telar Ring Deng.”
This is the man who was a great leader of the parliament and he has done lots. He has shown us his leadership since when he joined the SPLA and he was elected as the speaker of the Parliament because he has the ability to lead.
Igga’s legacy in the parliament will aid him to do the best as the vice president of the Republic of South Sudan. He is also the man of the people who knows what our people need especially at this time whereby our country is severely sick of corruption and nepotism.
Igga understands that the Parliament has the powers to tell President Kiir that you are wrong and you need to understand our people voices if you want to the president.
He is armed with such an amazing experiences that are very crucial to democracy and development. He has demonstrated this in Telar Ring Deng saga and he will continue doing the same since the parliament is now behind him.
Igga is a best choice for vice president and a best move to development because he will use his experiences to rally the young generation to get back to trusting their leaders through the parliamentary powers and experiences that he has especially at this time whereby we are about to give-up for these leaders who have lost the vision of our struggles.
Igga will re-engage the generation that’s promised and was sent to school to bring the development to our country, they will wakeup and back to work gain.
As Dr. John Garang de Mabior mentioned in his speech in 2004, in phoenix Arizona that, “I have come to wake you up and remind you that your day has come, tomorrow is already here and so take over leadership of your Movement, take over leadership of the SPLM/A; you have very little time left to prepare yourselves to take over that leadership in whatever fields: in agriculture, carpentry, architecture, medicine, politics, economics, in raising a family… all these require leadership and all contribute to building the New Sudan for which we have fought and sacrificed for over the last twenty one years.”
Our leaders have forgotten about this that the young generations are the backbone of our country. Kiir’s men are always busy thinking to eliminate young educated individuals like Isaiah Abraham and others who have lost their lives recently.
Igga can help to stop this from happening again by using his parliamentary experiences and powers as vice president of the Republic of South Sudan.
Igga is the only hope and the only way to democracy and development. He will lead us to the development that we need with the help of the parliament and everyone who thinks that we need to do something about our country should only think about supporting him rather criticizing him.
Let’s not focus on negatives but let’s look forward on how can we can stop this chick that eats her own eggs. Igga will do this because he’s the only leader that understand how the parliament should work and that he is the best choice for Vice president of the Republic of South Sudan.
