Nov 12, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- The agreement that was signed on the 26th August, 2015 by the President of the Republic of South Sudan would improve the living standard of the south Sudanese people if the warring parties committed themselves and implement what it is signed.
The people of the South Sudan have suffered for long period of time and this was because of power struggling. When there are no changes in the government, the government is democratic, no corruption cases and the all the principles of good governances are in place but when others are fired to give chance to new faces, those who are fired will say the opposite, they would say the government is corrupt, autocratic and the government is not delivery basic services to the people because of the system of governance which is according them is bad governance.
However, as one of the citizens of this country I failed to understand who is right and who is not right between those in government and those who are fired, also we are confused by our own politicians by always saying different statements. At the time they are in the government they would ask their supporters to rally behind the President and government but on the day they are removed they would ask their supporters not to rally behind the president by saying the government is very corrupt and that is the reason the services are reaching you the ordinary citizens.
When the warring parties implement fully the provisions in the compromise peace agreement it will attract the international community to come back to south Sudan and participate with us in the development our own country. The African countries did not request the south Sudanese government to come to South Sudan but were invited by our own making. Now we are in crisis we can not say now we don’t need their coming let us welcoming them with good heart and work with them for the welfare of our people. What I knew as a person when we work as expected the African countries will go back to their own countries with out even informing us, the same to others continent. These countries think day and night as we are sleeping. It is call compromise peace agreement for the reason that there are many types of conflict management, we can not call it avoiding, competing, harmonizing and collaborating all the remaining types of conflict management will have time after we fully implement the compromise peace agreement. Compromise means ask each person to give a little and take a little by arranging a compromise between the two. Ask both of the members to come to your offer and talk the problem through with them, presenting potential compromises and allowing them to consider these options over. By arranging a compromise instead of just selecting one member’s interests over the other, you can reduce the probability that one member feels insulted by the way in which the conflict was resolved. Therefore, I would say that the IGAD pus has proposed good name for our peace.
The other reason that needs attention of our leaders is the issue of under payment of civil servants in the country. This issue is paining us to much and I am asking our government to priories the issue of salaries so that with this economic crisis we are in our people would want to know that they have the government which is working for their welfare and the prosperity of our country. Paying government employees enough money will also contribute to the development.
The citizens will be in a position to educate their children to be leaders of tomorrow and not that you are the leader of today, tomorrow is your child, it will not make sense. Let us educate our children together so that there is competition tomorrow.
I would love to take this opportunity to appreciate the National Minister of Education, Science and Technology for the formation of committee that would revise and review the salaries of primary and secondary school teachers, thank you Mr. Hon Minister and I congratulate you for that. I am also arguing the other public institutions to do the same. This will help the people of South Sudan to restore and regain their lost culture. Majority of our children are learning out side and from there they are copying the cultures of those countries which are not going help us. Now I am appealing to the committee formed to unified teachers salaries from the national to villages level to enable qualified teachers teach at the village level because this will automatically force them to go down there.
This is the main reason that causes all the disorders in the country simply because the government is underpaying the civil servants who are the majority and those who are getting good paid are the constitutional post holders who are elected or appointed. This is why everybody in south Sudan wanted to be a politician for him to get good paid so that his families enjoy.
Concluding remarks, I am hereby asking our government to fully implement the compromise peace agreement to give chance to development to enable the ordinary citizen know that there is government which is working for their well being and prosperity.
