Sept 19, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Going back to the history, the whole continent of Africa is known as one of the richest continent on the faceless Earth in terms of natural resources; such as oils, iron ores, gold and diamonds, fish and lands & many more, but poor in Government, Authority and Control.
However, during the colonial eras, Sudan was identified although colonized not just the largest, but the only country that is the richest nation in terms of natural resources, and one of the most powerful nations in the whole continent of the Africans people in Government, Authority and Control. This powerfulness in Government, Authority and Control, was only found the most difficult to override in the GUN (Greater Upper Nile) regions by the colonials (Brinish) when the NFDK (Naath Federal Democratic Kingdom) coexisted. Meaning that the British who colonized Sudan had tried to govern, maintain authority and government control in the whole Sudan, but was found the most difficult to achieve in the GUN regions.
Therefore, the Economic interest of the IGAD nations is not just in South Sudan in particular, but the whole Sudan in order to destroy this powerfulness.
The Economic and Military interests of the IGAD nations on South Sudan Peace Talks:
The IGAD which came into an effect in 1996, came as a result after an assembly of heads of state and government In 1986 by the EAC (East Africans Community) where an agreement was signed, which officially launched the Intergovernmental Authority on Drought and Development (IGADD), then later became the IGAD was to function as a body for development and drought control in their region. These member states include:
• Uganda; and
• Rep. of Tanzania with its headquarters in Djibouti.
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in Eastern Africa was created in 1996 to supersede the Intergovernmental Authority on Drought and Development (IGADD) which was founded in 1986. Hence, IGAD came to existence as a result of a Declaration to revitalize IGADD and expand cooperation among member States in April 1995 in Addis Ababa at the Assembly of Heads of State and Government.
Although the EAC’s objectives are to:
• Promote joint development strategies and gradually harmonize macro-economic policies and programs in the social, technological and scientific fields; and
Sustainable development of natural resources and environment protection, and encourage and assist efforts of Member States to collectively combat drought and other natural and man-made disasters and their consequences.
Indeed the main aims and objectives of the IGAD countries are to destroy the powerfulness and destabilize the Sovereignty of the whole Sudan and, thus to control its natural resources through economical and militarily tactics of interests.
These economic and militarily tactics of interests of IGAD nations were design to achieve their total successes through weak leaders and manipulation of the ring politicians in Sudan, since it is the only nation richest in all kind of natural resources, and with people of no nationalism first, but with exception of the GUN regions.
Therefore, the EAC whom are known as the IGAD aims to destabilize the Government, Authority and Control in the GUN regions through economical and political or military tactics of interests by delaying peace talks, in order to achieve their economical interests by using the weak leadership of Sava Kiir’s government to kill the Naath Populations in the GUN regions.
This article conclude that, the GUN regions, and the Sudan whole must go back to the history of colonial eras, in order to again gains governance, government authority and control whereby it can bring her nation into state of stabilization. In do so; the whole Sudan must withdraw its membership from the EAC or IGAD and stand still and alone as sovereignty state, and thus maintain her power and run her natural resources and affairs.
Therefore, Sudan as a whole must know that, the IGAD nations are not for lasting peace talks neither in the South Sudan, nor in the whole Sudan, but to destroy her powerfulness and destabilize it through political and militarily tactics in order for them (IGAD) to achieved their economical and militarily interests and to control her natural resources and government.
