  • Oh!!! God,

    Jakaya Kikweti has heal the wounds of 19 century created by M. Julius Nyarere between Tanzanians and Black Africans in the then Sudan. For your own information, After the signing of Addis Ababa agreement (1972) followed by the slow phase of implementation (Like they were doing to CPA), Uncle Abel Alier-Waal Kwai e Kut went to Nyarere for consultation. Nyarere told him that he was “behaving like a child who had never sown seeds and one day that child sawed the seeds and expected them to grow and mature on the same day, after he failed to see them at the surface, he went to the garden to unearth them and in the process, he disturbed the roots and they were not able to grow well”. The communist Nyarere never wanted an Iowa and Khartoum graduate Abel Alier to rise to the top. Note, Nyarere TZ, Gaddaffi Libyia, Obote (Uganda), Nimeri of Sudan, Bakaso Jean of CAR were all communist and at the same time dictators who thus saw the young Abel Alier as athreat to communism in Africa. Even if this effort doesn’t materialize, Kikwete has heal the wounds and feelings we the black African in the Sudan had towards Tanzania, Don’t be surprise to hear that amongst the 12,000 Northern troops that were dismantled by SPLA along Bor Juba road (Pan-wel) in the famous war of “Ashara Alifu” or “12000 troops in 1985”, there were Tanzanians and Egyptian soldiers killed while fighting on behalf of the then Arabs government in Khartoum.
    Thank a lot to President Kikwete for his initiative to bring peace to S.Sudan without asking for his soldiers to be taken to S.Sudan to collect money.
