The rally which was held at Gerji Community Hall on 18th July attracted a massive crowd and delegates. Hundreds of young South Sudanese students schooling in Addis Ababa made their way to the hall as early as 12 pm while other travelling from the far to be part of the event. It goes well and angry youth asked Salva Kiir to resign to give peace a chance. Looking in the hall, almost everyone carrying something in hands that displayed the words, “Salva Kiir Must Go” in a big card painted in red. RED-Card, an act many believed to be a symbol of dismissal of Salva Kiir. as signal of Salva Kiir is not wanted by the people of south Sudan.
SPLM-In-Opposition officials were massively presence during the rally. The former Ambassador to US, Mr. Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth who was over joy for the dynamic participation of the Youth advocate for the peace and asks the world to listen to the Opposition demands. Ezekiel who gave a long speech full of hilarious recall the times he was in detention for a crime he didn’t committed.
“We never made any coup. Salva Kiir decided to make a coup for re-election, to re-elect himself” adding that, “His time is up and he is no longer wanted by the people of south Sudan”
Puot K. Chuol the President of SPLM Youth League asked the youth to take power back from Salva Kiir who he describes have no shame to resign despite killing South Sudanese in broad day light. The outspoken Youth Leader re-treated his call for unity among the opposition. “Unity must be our theme in defeating Salva Kiir”. He also challenged the world to see the vision of SPLM under the leadership of the able Dr. Riek Machar Teny. “I heard people saying we SPLM have no vision. What about our vision for Federalism, restructuring of State institutions currently tribalized by Juba regime, reform Security sector and several other things we have been asking the world to see from us? He wonder, “Are those not the aspiration of South Sudanese?” he believed Federalism is the only alternative that will save the young nation from disintegrating completely. “Federalism is our vision; the aspiration of South Sudanese from the day one. It will set this nation to the prosperity we have been wishing, asking and praying for.”
He thanks the people of South Sudan who joined the war and campaigning against Salva Kiir regime. “I appreciate my brothers and sisters from Egypt, US, Australia and Uganda for giving Salva Kiir RED CARD. This campaign begun from 9 of July and will continue until the killer is out of power”
Puot K. Chol also hit at SPLM-G10 wondering whether they were serious to fight a regime that killed South Sudanese. Mr. Kang described them as opportunists and betrayal to the bloods of South Sudanese who fought hard for their released. “Never worry much about them. They don’t have courage to face the truth for the fear of losing what we all know, their positions.”
G10 who recently made a comeback to work with Salva Kiir regime are being expected to be part of the upcoming reshuffling. Pagan Amum, the G10 leader vowed to work together with Kiir’s government to bring peace. He has been reinstated back to his previous position as the SPLM Secretary General; despite the president of Uganda calling them “rebels” the bold seekers believed they are in the right direction.
Old men and women sang the songs of wars and praise the courage of White Army for defending their home town from foreign hired mercenaries by Salva Kiir. Riek Zong Riek calls for Unity and peace without the presence of Kiir. Riek who is the Chairman for the SPLM-Youth League in Ethiopia argued south Sudanese youth who are idles to joined war to defend their homes from being burnt to ground. “If you are not doing anything joins our brothers and sisters in fronts to defend our old people not to be burnt alive by Salva Kiir. For Salva Kiir to go we must join our people in the front line. Kiir must go. He is no longer legitimate. He has no right to rape young girls and burnt them alive.”
Ambassador Otim representing Opposition to Nigeria, declared that, “massively Equatoria are defecting Juba Regime”.
In conclusion, we would like to call on every South Sudanese worldwide to conduct the same RED-CARD RALLY since Salva Kiir is still in power. The head office of the SPLM-IO has saw and appreciate South Sudanese residing in EGYPT, United State, Uganda, Australia, and now Ethiopia; we are still waiting to hear from the rest of the nations particularly, Sudan, Nairobi, Canada, and all the countries that has our supporters.
This is the time the South Sudanese must be united in diversity to collectively show love, unity and patriotism for their nation. Salva Kiir has deprived our people of the proceeds of their struggle. Through corruption Kiir has mismanaged our peoples resources meant for development and our people have become destitute in their own country. Salva Kiir had wronged us and we must dwell on that until he realizes that South Sudan is a nation of 64 tribes and they all deserve an equal share in love and peace.
