July 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — The Nuer Youth Union in Ethiopia (NYUE) welcome the recent proposals, made by the leadership of SPLM/A in opposition, led by the former vice president, the commander in chief of the SPLA forces, Dr.Riek Macher Teny and his comrades in the movement .

The creation of more states in the country is essential because it will heal wounds inflicted in the peace loving South Sudanese nationals by Yoweri Museveni and Salva Kiir Mayardiit as mean to an end to clink to power. More states or ethnic base federalism, as other would call it, will relax current tension between our diverse tribes.

It will ensure that communities that have lived to solve their differences would continue to live in peace and harmony without dragging other communities, which some could be hostile to sub-population of the states. For example, in Jonglei states Murles, Dinka Bor and Lou-Nuer have had very little respect for one another due to stereotypical believes and political polarization over the years.

Forcing these communities to share resources in one plate has funded genocides, massacres, rapes and merciless killing for the last years in Jonglei and other states. It has engulfed the whole country and continued until today.

To reduce this tribal hatred and suspicion of “born to rule” or “child abduction” or “nyigaats”, let each of these sub-populations have their own states and solve their problems as it was instituted by the colonial masters. Let this be done in others parts of the country as proposed by Dr. Machar’s leadership

This proposal will encourage development, peace, reconciliation, justice, equality and prosperity in the new born nation. If these are the dreams that our forefathers fought for, then this must be the solution. We must embrace this proposal as we did to our referendum a few years a go.

We believe that this proposal may not heal the old wounds in the short run, however, it would expedite the establishment of federalism, a system that would elevate the living standard at the grassroots and among other classes.

We believe as the country move out of property and instability the old wounds and hostilities would eventually catch up with civilians, education and happiness of every citizen in the country, and thus, would such wounds would be healed. We can’t preach peace and reconciliation when the our tribes are scrambling over resources.

For these reasons, the Nuer Youth Union in Ethiopia would take this opportunity to congratulate the elites and architectures of these genius proposal. We urge the peace loving South Sudanese, in the strongest terms possible, to embrace nationalism and the future of this country.

It is unfortunate that Salva Kiir and his government would try to tarnish anything and everything that is proposed by their opponents, however, as the youth of this nation, we must stand for what is right for the next generations. Our uncles have lived and will be gone shortly, and thus, we can’t base our decisions on their short terms interests. The SPLM/SPLA is dominated by young leaders and intellectuals, and thus this proposal must be in public interest.

The two proposals are the components that the South Sudanese citizens were lacking to establish the foundation of this country. We, therefore, encourage all the citizens of South Sudan in Western world , Arab countries, and East African countries to dedicated their voices and supports for the proposal and the creation of (21) states. This will be the only option that will bring a new change, Development, Peace and Prosperity in south Sudan.

To those who have reservation, we would like to say that the nation has failed but we must get up and exhaust all avenues. We believe this is the right time to try something new instead of hanging onto a failed and vulnerable system. The current system would never be reversed because the nation is sinking, from 4th most failed state to third failed state and currently the most fragile state in the world. This can’t be reversed!

The recent proposals may not be perfect but there is room for change. The 21 states, for example, may not all survive but rule and principles would be instituted to aid decisions to integrate or create new states. This gives room to collapse or expand states until South Sudan finds what suits all our diverse cultures and talents.

This is our take and we would like to encourage constructive debate from the intellectuals who have heart to help build a viable state.

Once again, we the Nuer Youth Union in Ethiopia (NYUE) declare our full support for federalism as the only system of governance that will bring a change of development, and long lasting peace in country.

We congratulate Equatorians and Chollo communities for declaring their allegiances to the SPLM/A in opposition and overwhelming support for 21 States Federal Democratic Republic of South Sudan.

May God bless South Sudan.

MEMBERS OF THE SPLM IN GREATER KANSAS CITY( MISSOURI/KANSAS) DEFECT TO THE OPPOSITION UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF DR. RIEK MACHAR

Press Release

KansasJuly 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — After having waited for nearly six months, collecting all the credible information about the ongoing conflict in our country, and having taken the western countries’ stand, and lately, president Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, a close ally of President Salva Kiir, as a matter of fact, the man who facilitate the Juba Nuer massacre  and rescued the  government of Salva Kiir and his gangs from a point of collapse in the early days of  civilians massacre in Juba; and has his troops currently fighting alongside Salva Kiir.

Said, it openly clear that what happened in juba on Dec/15/13 was not a coup but a political disagreement within SPLM,  also with the coming of  Hon. Reath Muoch Tang, former member of the South Sudan National legislative Assembly and former chairperson of Upper Nile, SPLM caucus, in the National Assembly, who was designated by  the leadership of the former Vice President Dr Riek Machar, now turned Rebel leader, to come and educate the South Sudanese communities in the US about the genesis of the conflict.

It become clear that Salva Kiir instigated this war in order for him to consolidate his power. Therefore, we the people of Greater Kansas City (Missouri/Kansas) concluded that this crisis was created by the president of the Republic of South Sudan and we hold him responsible for the loss of thousands of lives, suffering of our people in country and must face ICC.

President Kiir’s dictatorial tendency did not start in Dec/15/13 incident, but a manifestation of a number of incidences. Prominent among others include the killing of journalist, Isiaih Abraham in Juba in 2012, land grabbing, Killing of Murlee and the killing of peaceful and innocent protestors in Wau in December 2012. Two politicians were unlawfully charged and current being held in prison in connection by the government in Wau, unconstitutional removal of the two elected Governor of unity and Lake State. Finally, he is now turning his war to Equatorian citizen who express their demand for the Federal system of Governance in the country.

At this junction, we collectively decided to withdraw, up to this time, our individual surrendered sovereignties from the government of the Salva Kiir and strongly call upon the citizenry of the nascent Republic to stage civil disobedience and join the armed struggle across the country to overthrow the barbaric regime in Juba.

We condemn, in the strongest terms possible, the fabricated coup that culminated with massacre of innocent Nuer civilians in Juba by the president’s private army drawn from his clansmen, and at the same time call upon the United Nations to refer the case to an international court to prosecute those responsible for all the crimes committed against humanity. And we are asking the US government to not allowing Salva kiir Mayardit to set foot on the US soil, the land of liberty and freedom.

Believing that, these crises have taken toll on our people, and we cannot stand by doing nothing. It has become clear that after the president dissolved all the party structures, he erased the party from existence, leaving himself as the head of a party that does not exist, a behavior reminiscent of a dictator. His actions showed that he renege from the core principles of which the SPLM/A was founded. With all this sequence of events, the SPLM members in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan area hereby declare shifting support from the genocidal and non SPLM and dictatorial regime in Juba to the SPLM in opposition (SPLM-O) under the leadership of the former Vice president Dr. Riek Machar with the loudest voice possible.

This is the time to join the call for the removal of this incompetent president. South Sudanese in the Diaspora will engage the international community through diplomatic pressure to impose tougher sanctions against the genocidal government in Juba. We strongly believe our decision to throw our support behind the opposition, following many similar declarations by SPLM –Chapters and South Sudanese Communities in the Diaspora to join the SPLM in Opposition will accelerate the process of toppling Kiir’s undemocratic regime. Under this regime, for the last 10 years, South Sudanese are less united than ever in any other times of its history of struggle, and hence, our tendency as SPLM-O is to promote and preserve the unity of our people.

Therefore, we the undersigned SPLM members in Greater Kansas City have absolutely registered our full support to the SPLM/A in opposition led by the former Vice President Dr. Riek Machar in every capacity, be it in terms of manpower and/or other needed resources.

Can Daniel Deng Bul Who Basically Failed In state Succeeded At a National level?

July 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Daniel Deng Bul was appointed in April 2013, with Republican Decree by President Kiir, as South Sudan Healing, Peace and National Reconciliation Committee’s Chairperson. Deputized by South Sudan admired Bishop Paride Taban. The National Reconciliation Committee under Daniel Deng Bul was given a tremendous task to reconcile South Sudanese people. To relief the twenty one years (21) war trauma which might have had affected and twisted the thinking of certain elements in different communities across South Sudan. Daniel Deng Bul, three years before this similar task but in a state level, had been once sequentially or simultaneously mediating Peace between George Athor and GoSS, among the Murle, Lou Nuer and Bor Dinka as well as between David Yau Yau and GRSS.  Primarily, all these peace mediations were, under the auspice of Daniel Deng Bul, in Jonglei state level started right from mid-2010 to 2012.

However, Daniel Deng Bul basically failed to initiate even anything that could be seen related to peace among Jonglei state communities. He reconciled neither Geoge Athor Deng and GRSS, ethnic conflicting groups(Murle, Lou Nuer & Bor Dinka) by the time nor GRSS and South Sudan Democratic Movement SSDM/A—Cobra Faction of David Yau Yau. Therefore, a question which this piece aim to establish is: Can Daniel Deng Bul who basically failed in a state level, succeed to bring peace in a national level? Which one is more complicated, state or national task? Is there anybody optimistic that Deng Bul will ever succeeded in reconciling South Sudanese people? It happens but seldom, for a person who failed to solve a family-like issue to succeed in a broadest one in a national level. This is one thing to note. In the same token, is Daniel Deng Bul among the personalities who do succeed in bringing peace? What are the criteria always needed of a person to be appointed as a Mediator? Can anybody tell me those characteristics? How to bring peace and reconciliation among ethnical, politically divided society like South Sudanese, isn’t simple. Is it?

Look when Daniel Deng Bul was sworn into office and set to leave Juba for Jonglei in order to reconcile the aforementioned communities. He immediately started the work as soon as he could reach the state. Initially, Deng Bul in the state called for an inclusive conference, he said. Unfortunately, the people who were present in that meeting held in Bor, intended by Deng Bul, were all from one side of the conflict. The inhabitants of Bor County. Other groups were excluded from the conference. As they were in Pibor uniformed and other remote places in the far east of the state. In that conference the excluded communities were termed criminals, destroyers and given stereotype names by the organizers. The same became also the case in GRSS and SSDM/A- Cobra Faction peace process under the Chairmanship of Deng Bul himself. Perhaps because of his deeds, Daniel Deng was seen partial throughout. That might be the reason why he failed to mediate peace in Jongle state. Words and statements like, “The Murle, Lou Nuer are the cause of insecurity in the state, they are the ones who raid cattle, loot other people’s properties and David Yau Yau is a criminal who could be burn alive if found, compared to Dinka Bor who are peaceful”. Again Daniel Deng was quoted as saying “David Yau Yau was a notorious and criminal who killed people in disguise of democracy”.

Conference that meant to include all sides to the conflicts concentrated only on two sides if not one. The Murle in Pibor and other communities couldn’t be involved, as you the readers read earlier on. The author is not an expert in peace, conflicts and resolution but he doesn’t believe that such divisive statements from a mediating body could welded wounds.  As result, there came a lots of questions from the excluded sides. Which, automatically, led to a premature failure of Jonglei state peace process under Daniel Deng Bul. That is to say, Daniel Deng failed in mediated peace between the GOSS and George Athor, among the Murle, Lou-Nuer, Bor Dinka traditional conflicts and that of GRSS and SSDM/A- Cobra Faction of David Yau Yau.

There was only a breakthrough in Jonglei state when Bishop Paride Taban was tasked to take over from Deng Bul and mediated peace between the GRSS and SSDM/A- Cobra Faction of Yau Yau. An admired Bishop, Paride Taban, who really experienced in how two or more conflicting sides are mediated. Globally, Bishop Taban was in early 2013 won UN Peace Award. Indeed, Paride Taban when took the job over from Deng Bul he truly brokered a fruitful peace between the GRSS and SSDM/A-Cobra Faction. We have now GRSS and SSDM/A-Cobra Faction peace Agreement signed in Addis Ababa, brought by Bishop Paride Taban. The later did not periled the issues around the solution to that problem. Otherwise there would have been no agreement today called SSDM/A-GRSS of GPAA.

Let’s return to South Sudan Healing, Peace and National Reconciliation Committee’s role. Daniel Deng Bul was tasked to reconcile South Sudanese people before this current turmoil could erupted. Did Daniel Deng Bul’s Committee bring to an end communal conflicts in Lakes state? I think the Committee didn’t make any progress. Only the similar divisive statements were instead attributed to the Committee’s leadership. Take for example, a political prayer delivered in a Parliament last year by a certain Archbishop. Amid the then SPLM creating National crisis: “In which Almighty God was asked by that certain Archbishop to take the life of anybody who wanted to challenge Salva Kiir in a SPLM‘s Chairmanship.” It was being repeated in several occasions in Juba. Are these the prayers that can help reconcile the people of South Sudan? How do you see it now? I mean the work of Daniel Deng’s Committee. Hasn’t it process been paralyzed? Apart from those examples, where is an independency they claim? There is no independency seen nation-wide. Independency never means I should organize a one sided conference. Yes I can organize it there but also in the other place, where it’s necessitate.

Also, independency never means organizing just prayers in the Churches. Do the audiences take your points in that Churches you preach in?  Do that words touch and find what is in the hearts of grassroots. Independency doesn’t imply to hold meeting in a Freedom Hall in Juba city and say you’re reconciling the nations. For instance, have you ever held a peace conference in Kajo-Keji, Maridi, Renk and Raga? Leaving the most internal conflict-affected people of Lakes State wondering about what kind of reconciliation you might be doing there in your own local language.  Independency never means you ethnically distort perspectives in context. Independency means not to say by yourself that you’re independent of your associated belief, politicians or whatever might be seen an obstacle to peace. Succeeding in bringing peace to the nation isn’t something one can just wish for. Rather it is something you’re characterized practically. Something you do, something you are, and something you talk impartially. As Bishop Paride Taban does and other Churches leaders. To engage in conflicts, you need not to buy a knife that cuts but a needle that sews. Healing and Reconciliation is to understand both sides. And it should, however, be a must for those sides involved to have confidences in you. If you cannot access all sides to the conflicts 24 hours, then you’re reconciling who with who? Or they might have lost confidences in you. Alas, you will have no chance to go to one side, describe the suffering being endured by the other side and produce solution or way forward. And then go to other side doing the former and the latter repeatedly, which is the basic step of making successful peace and reconciliation. If that one cannot happen to you then you won’t taste the solution or fulfill this step. It must be worth for you to resign. Give the responsibility to next colleague to have a try.

Lastly, not the least, I would hope that South Sudanese people have convinced that talks between GoSS and George Athor—Movement have failed. Jonglei state Communal peace imitative among the Murle, Bor Dinka and Lou- Nuer Communities was failed. Moreover, the talks between SSDM/A of David Yau Yau and GRSS have also failed at the end of 2012. All these three mediations made by Daniel Deng Bul were prematurely failed in Jonglei state level. But became successful when Bishop Paride Taban had stepped in. In the same way, Daniel Deng Bul has already failed in the national level. He cannot succeed in bringing Reconciliation to South Sudanese people whatsoever much more time he can be awarded. For, his leadership lacks reconciliatory attitudes required in mediation. Keeping Daniel Deng Bul as Peace, Healing and National Reconciliation Committee’s Chairperson is tantamount to telling South Sudanese people that don’t reconcile. Therefore, the Responsibility of reconciling the nation, if we’re really in need of reconciliation, should be handed over to our well-regarded Bishop, Paride Taban. Bishop Paride Taban is one of the most South Sudanese potential Religious Leaders to reconcile South Sudanese without one, two three. President Kiir should decree into National Reconciliation top office, Bishop Paride Taban. Let Bishop Taban take his overdue precise job!

Nairobi, July 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Greater Fangak Community worldwide takes this opportunity to congratulate the SPLM/A under the wise Leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny – Dhurgon for the wise plan to establish twenty one(21) federal states in Federal Democratic Republic of South Sudan.

Greater Fangak Community has enthusiastically welcomed this promising pledge by the SPLM/A, in which Fangak would establish its own administrative state, within what would be the Federal Democratic Republic of South Sudan, FDRSS.

Greater Fangak Community constitutes three sisterly counties namely, Pigi, Ayod and Fangak. The three communities, built by kith and kin network, have lived  in peace and harmony since the time of immemorial. Thus, having their own federal state, the three counties would cement and nurture their longstanding unity of purpose.

In cognizant to this plan, Greater Fangak Community registers its vote of confident in support of a call for a federal governance system in South Sudan.

It is our believe that benefits of federalism go beyond normal margin of a social spectrum; indeed, it will enable people of South Sudan to realize and fulfill communal aspirations of social developments at their doorsteps. This credence comes as a result of desiring fruits of federalism that will trickle down to the most disadvantaged sections of our society.

While seizing this opportunity, Greater Fangak Community calls upon South Sudanese statesmen, political elites, academicians, faith-based communities, traditional authorities, civil societies and other peace loving stakeholders to fully embrace the ongoing IGAD peace initiative that aims to end the unwanted political crisis which has overtaken our country for the last seven months.

With attainment of peace, South Sudanese will be able to celebrate their social differences and cultural diversities, a collective mosaic of forging ‘South Sudanesness’ as a common identity for all, only through a federally structured states.

Long live Greater Fangak Community
Long live Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon
Long live Federal Democratic Republic of South Sudan

CASE OF STREET CHILDREN: Can Child Homelessness Be Solved By The South Sudan Government?

By Guest Writer David Lony Majak

Survey shows that there are 2000 children on the streets of South Sudan(Photo: supplied)

Survey shows that there are 2000 children on the streets of South Sudan(Photo: supplied)

July 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — There are estimated street children to be around 2,000 (thousands) living on the streets in the Republic of south Sudan and before the ongoing crisis erupted, there are often victims of all kinds of abuse, hard situations, and these children still have rights to anything in their life time.

Briefly, When I carry out a reasonable comprehensive research regarding children living on the street. I initially found one, a little bit dated article for this topic need to be titled the “the power of street children in this country”, but it interested me quite a lot and so I started searching for more recent and related areas around main markets of South Sudan (Juba business centers).  Unfortunately these were not easy to find and my Internet perusing began to lose its focus since much detail (s) are always been ignored by few of readers in some links websites.  As I looked through the most recent slew of child suffering, an incredibly moving speech about the unjust street children system in the south Sudan, through their words, I began to recognize meaningful connections between their ideas and become a friend to them, there I became a writer of their problems.

What is a street child? Some of the readers may ask this question that, who is street child? Street children are minors who live and survive on the streets conditionally in his/her daily life. They often grow up in public landfills, train stations, under the bridges of the world’s major cities. Because of conflicts with their family, these children do not want to or cannot return home base on touchiest situations forcing them to join streets here in south Sudan or around the world.

In a normal culture around African Proverbs, an event to see our children living on streets makes me understand how my body moves and shows the wonderful work of God”. Street Child: “I prefer the topic since it enables me know how my body works especially how the food we eat is broken down while others are suffering because of feeding issue, what makes us grow, how we react when there is something harmful to the body in life. The body is just like a machine” that can generate any thing before it depreciates that is how street children are; at the moment they are still young, it is not danger to the country’s’ security, but leaving them to grow like that is major disaster to rich and poor in future but give a big question to the society.

Some causes for children ‘streetism’ (Genuine causes of joining streets);

In South Sudan today, most of the children may be forced to the streets due to a number of reasons (s) in around the globe, some of which are mentioned here;

  1. Overcrowding: (Lack of living space, poor house ventilation, etc.) under which children are forced to live in slum areas, without food, and other basic amenities has forced numerous children to the streets of cities.
  2. Negative attitudes toward children is the abusive work in homes where domestic workers are forced to run away as a result of being overworked underpaid or even subjected to other forms of abuse. They end up on the streets trying to earn a living.
  3. The growing HIV/AIDS scrooge in Africa has left many children orphaned or abandoned by their parents. Such children often end as street children. With one third of Africans now living in towns and cities, coupled with rapid urban population growth rates, the streets have become the workplace and playground for millions of street children where their lives is at risk.
  4. Generally the poverty level in urban areas is on the increase and children have no choice but togo out and look for their daily bread to assist their younger siblings. In the case of single femaleheaded households a child may feel the need to go out and assist his/her mother in bringingsome income.
  5. Family crisis: poverty and other associated life events may result in dysfunctional parenting styles. These weaken family bonds and result in an environment where parents become physically andemotionally abusive to their children or towards each other.

General Recommendation:

Therefore; on how to handle cases relating to street children in south Sudan; to enhance the capacity of local authorities to deal with the problem of street children, the government of republic of south Sudan should clearly design a policy of helping needy or marginalizes communities in order to reduce high streetism or what we called streetwise in the country.

In the recent of difficult situation pertaining around the Nation, there are various ways of preventing high rates of streetism in the country if put in place,the Local authorities work at the local level of ten (s) states of newly born country the republic of south Sudan which obtain its independence on 9th-july 2011.

The community participation and involvement, Transparency of all stakeholders and local capacity building as well as some opportunities to support them, Political support from the central government. Community based institutions which would have make a thoroughly recognition is Goddmanti.

Consistent follow up and collaboration with other stakeholders, building mechanical schools like garages, carpenter stations for training them, orphanages schools, support from church leaders especially the most contributed Bishops in South Sudan, Decentralization of policy implementation, Continuous training, and facilitating formation of community based institutions, networking.

Prioritizing marginalized communities leaving the issue of tribalism these outline points above can really reduce joining of streets by south Sudanese infants who have got no support from their parents.

Children living on the street in Nimule border are better than those living in Juba, why? , they have got many works to do like selling empty contains, collecting garbage , selling juice, green mango, lemon, etc. that help them survive in their daily life-style. When I asked some of the street children that where did you get food both lunch and super, they told me a very unique reply that we had got nowhere to get food, shelters, housing for lodging, they sleeping at corners of buildings in markets using cottons, they used the already wear cloth for covering themselves if it became cold.

Their mission to Kampala was in response to a request by President Yoweri Museveni who asked for a meeting with the Chairman and Commander-in-Chief of SPLM/SPLA- in Opposition, Dr. Riek Machar Teny. The delegation’s travel was arranged with the knowledge of the Ugandan Ambassador to Ethiopia.

In today interview with Nyamilepedia Editorial Team, James Gatdet Dak, the Spokesperson for the Chairman of the SPLM- in Opposition stated that, Ugandan leadership has clearly indicated that President Museveni is not serious to dialogue with our leadership.

Dak Stated that Ugandan leadership had a different intention. They didn’t like the fact that the mission to Kampala was made known to the world through media.

July 21, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Our State South Sudan is one of the nations internationally recognized by various global organizations in three years back. Having the country like South Sudan which the central government is mandated and publicly accepted by her citizens is more important than any other thing.

Citizens doesn’t only feel proud of having centralized government but they first love the sovereignty of their nation which whole world called now Republic of South Sudan after long waited Referendum fulfilled by people the South Sudanese citizens in 2011 when majority of civil population voted for separation.
How hopes of citizens were not only failed but regrettably destroyed by Juba Elites
Who are Juba Elites?
Juba elites are a small group of people who are/were controlling a disproportionate amount of wealth and political power since 2005 to the date of their outdated political disagreement which resulted into bloodshed in modern world of peaceful settlement of problems.

they are/were selective groups who run the government of South Sudan friendly and favorably since the transitional interim government but unexpectedly they challenged each other, criticized themselves for the total failure of the ruling party SPLM and forgotten that the citizens knew their good and poor performances in government from the date they assumed the positions.

Elites of Juba thought they are /were more clever enough to corrupt the system, embezzled the public funds and failed to implement the urgent basic human needs and at the same time instead to sit down as top government officials and advise themselves to stop misappropriation of the country ‘s resources and build for us a modern nation South Sudan because no one among them is poor compare to others they just went out barely and publicly to challenge themselves and tell the total failure of country without knowing that the poor civil population in this country alright knew how they are being failed by them {Juba Elites} but the poor civilians kept silent for having no an alternative to Juba government of selective politicians.

So elitism of Juba government’s top politicians was not their intelligence but luckiness to meet as a true friends who can never and will never make an accountability to themselves despite of how too much they are corrupting the government provide that they are in the system and practicing the similar scandal.

That is what happened to them not intelligence nor an interests of South Sudanese citizens to leave their country being mishandled to the extent of high corruption but it was their time {Juba Elites} to do what they expect not what citizens expects to be down by the politicians who loves their people and State.
Internal division of Juba Elites
As the common saying put it, politic is a dirty game. Which had misinterpret rated itself since an emerge of an earlier political theories. So I think it is not the case here in politics of modern world. The theory that says politics is a dirty game is more to be contradicted in nation of learn t politicians and people.

Then for the case of Juba Elites politics, how the politic came really to its common saying as a dirty game. Despite that the theory of politics being a dirty game was rejected by young people who made independent and accurate research about politics. But majority of people agreed when Juba Elites divided themselves into groups mainly Gen. Salva Kiir his group and Dr. Riak Machar his group.
The division came surprising and sharply when the two leaders presented their ambition for the chairmanship of the ruling party SPLM for the 2015 elections. The top politicians of SPLM disagreed in an appointment of the party’s chairperson to compete with main opposition leaders.

The politics they played in SPLM for election ticket revealed too many people that politics is a dirty game. Giving more questions to people of how Gen. Salva Kiir fell out with his long time true friends in SPLM who can never disagreed with him in any circumstances If it was not a believe theory of politics being a dirty game trying to happen and show itself in Africa’s youngest nation which truly engulfed our country into bloody civil war.

No more debate, politics is a true dirty game if it is ill-played based on what happened to our nation South Sudan. The current crises facing the innocent people who don’t know anything in politics is not only horrible but painful leaving blame always on top politicians who carelessly enforced the experienced war to poor people.

This war is not only destructive, divisive but continuously is implementing unshaken hatred between the (Jieng) and (Nuer) If there will be no sincere sensitization of Nuer and Jieng ‘s civil populations about their closeness and relativity and their none business on Kiir and Riak ‘s heedless war by rejecting unhelpful orientations.

later when almighty God make it, bring a comprehensive peace among the misled communities to understand the position they are supposed to take in any political disorientation, the government has to take necessary measures in reconstruction and transformation of the societies by educating them well not to make any mistake again to back up the politicians who doesn’t need the enjoyment of stability of country.

This is time for poor people to take their children to school instead to be misused in any situation created by those who want to come to power or maintain their positions. It is an essential and has to be considered seriously by victims.
Problems needs political settlement to end the senseless war

It would be better for two leaders of two groups the warring parties to sit down and honestly convince themselves on how to bring lasting peace to country.. They have to reconsider the suffering of civilians as currently the innocent are displaced from their homes and forced to homeless. Dialogue is a solution to grievances and political differences.
If both leaders really love and cares for people, then they have to give peace chance and forget interests they are pursuing.
