Welcoming The Chairman and Commander In Chief of SPLA/M-IO. Dr. Riek Machar Teny From USA.
By Moses Khamis Abdullatif,
Oct 18, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — It is a pleasure to welcome your return to Africa after a long journey, all the way from the United States of Americas knowing that you worked tirelessly together with the team every day without taking holidays for a better and democratic South Sudan. May God bless you! We are all behind you because of the revolution and the change in our country, not because of anything else.
Unlike the SPLMs in juba, who are rallying after a dictator who does whatever he feels like, violating the peace accord and the constitution for that matter as if he is the only man among his party in creation or a king.
We the people of S. Sudan had suffered since Arab dictatorship time until today when we discovered that we ourselves had elected another dictator or Arab part-II in the Republic of S. Sudan.
I strongly believe what is needed in S. Sudan is one thing and that is peace. All political parties and the citizens need peace in the country, which is why the leadership of SPLM (IO) sign peace accord first to end the suffering of the people and we should all work for it till the end despite that this peace was signed with reservations by president Kiir and continued to violate the peace accord which had been condemn by the regional bloc and international community.
I want to use this opportunity as one of those youths who are concern about peace and change in our country and also as SPLA/M (IO) member to share my personal opinion that the leadership under Dr. Machar should sign the security arrangement since we happened to sign peace accord with only two governors and 15% in other states which shows the commitment of (IO) to the whole world not because it’s good for us but because it is intended to end the suffering of S. Sudanese. I see its wiser for us to sign it too and move swiftly with the time stipulated in the agreement accord.
President Kiir must be isolated by the regional bloc for proofing himself to be a threat to S. Sudan and the region or change his actions. All what he wants with his group is either rule or destroy S. Sudan because we will loose the country if this signed peace fails due to his actions.
Otherwise, the country will be taken by UN and we loose the sovereignty which is better for me than loosing lives of the people who are dying from the genesis of S. Sudan crisis to date.
This message goes to all political parties in Juba and citizens including warring parties that we should not take pride of the war and selfish leadership but let us be proud of our national anthem and equality that all men were created equal; not killing others and others should deserve live or certain classes should live better when others are made to suffer.
A government of unity that we can trust and a party that we can trust, the police, courts that we can trust without paying bribes, a country that holds elections and all votes are counted without violation or fear from death of citizens is all that we aspire to create!
Last but not the least, your Excellency chairman and commander in chief of SPLA/ (IO) forces, I believe you are the one to lead us to reach such successful future and to establish a movement that will be known as a nationalists [SPLA/M (IO)] leaders’ party that has brought peace to our people by signing the peace accord first, together with political detainees led by Pagan Amum and others stakeholders. Its recorded as a good legacy to us because the continuation of war will not bring change in S. Sudan and neither would creation of 28 states bring any change to the situation; but only reaching a peace agreement in spirit and love.
Best of luck!
Moses Khamis Abdullatif.
