A Time for Everything

August 10, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — “There is a time to be born and a time to die; there is a time to plants and a time to pull up plants. There is a time to kill and a time to heal. There is a time to destroy and a time to build. There is a time to cry and a time laugh. There is a time to be sad and a time to throw weapons down and a time to pick them up. There is a time to hug someone so tightly. There is a time to look for something and a time to consider it lost. There is a time to keep things and a time to throw things away. There is a time to tear cloth and a time to sew it. There is a time t be silent and a time to speak. There is a time to love and a time to hate. There is a time for war and a time for peace.” ـــ (Ecclesiastes 3: 1,8).
When agreement to resolve the crisis in South Sudan was signed between Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, president of Republic of South Sudan and Dr. Riek Machar Teny , Chairman of SPLM/A ( In Opposition ) and former vice president and both tows leaders come to an agreement that a tensional government of national unity will offer the best chance for the people of South Sudan to take the country forward; and that such a government shall oversee government factions during transitional period, implement critical reforms as negotiated through the peace process, oversee a permanent constitutional process, and guide the country into a new elections; and thus direct their respective representative to the IGAD-led peace process to negotiate the terms of a transitional government of national, altogether are limited to sixty days which equivalent to tow months.
By that time all South Sudanese back home and worldwide were very optimistic and immediately started ascending count till the 60 days finished with “ Zero Accomplishment “.
Who is going to be blame for the failure of restoration of peace in new nation, only the tow principle?, a thousands of souls are lost and a million displaced in and out of the country and now the country is spectting to extreme hunger and starvation or so call “ Famine”.
Therefore, as the youth and citizen of this nation we are suffering a lot from this unfortunate incident to a new born state as South Sudan, for that reason we urge the SPLM/IO and the government of South Sudan to put their interest aside and priorities the vulnerable peoples by the commitment to peace process thou we are very disappointed for the expire of 60 days agreement to finalized the peace accord nonetheless we still have tiny faith for you to bring peace and harmony.
In conclusion, we come to this universe with empty hand, and we will leave it the same way.
Time for peace and reconciliation has come no matter what we have been hurt, we have to let it go.
Long live South Sudan,
Long live people of South Sudan ‼!
