What Does Coming Of Dr. Riek Machar Mean To People Of South Sudan?
By Dr. Gatluak Ter Thach,
April 05, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Those there are anti peace elements in South Sudan, the hope depends now on the return of the Former Vice President., the current Vice President designate Dr. Riek Machar to South Sudan’s capital, Juba. President Kiir has made a decision to partner in peace with Dr. Riek to heal people of South Sudan from deadly killings that caused the new nation to lose numbers of extraordinary innocent lives for the last two and half years.
The decision-making practices must adhere to the commonsense of doing what one says he would do. It is crucially imperative for a communication climate, which includes information flow in media and in circles to people at all levels, is positively linked to the institutionalized commitment of the inked document (peace signed). This referred to some messages and actions that are contradicted the decisions made earlier.
It is also observed that people’s favorable perceptions in South Sudan about internal peace and security, as well an opportunity for forgiveness and redeveloping of the broken social fabrics for a common good is more than doubling. Regardless of significant challenges ahead of the implementation, which I believe could be addressed and overcome if the leadership meant what they said, the return of Dr. Riek to the South Sudan’s capital is outstanding blessing for the followings:
- Return some hopes to people of South Sudan
- Rebuild trusts as well as form TGONU
- Resave some lives that could be future for the country
- Restart the healing and reconciliation among the warring communities
- Restart processes for people to people peace
- Reengage national dialogs
- Restore fragile economics
- Reshape damaged nation image and
- Reengage members of the world body to invest in peace and development of the country.
You can see from this short list of mine which could be expanded why the return of Dr. Riek Machar Teny to Juba in coming weeks will be an exceptional blessing, not exclusively to those that are trapped in UNMISS camps in their supposed capital—under the protection of UN international agencies, but also to the average people on streets in Juba and small towns across the country, who are begging for their lives from insecurity, diseases and famine. People who may die in few days, weeks or months because of famine and other causes could be saved, and this is what the leadership is about.
Leaders with enormous leadership legacies from Pres. George Washington, Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, and Dr. Martin King, just to list a few, made rare sacrifices to save the lives and reshape the conditions of their people. Dr. Riek is doing just that, and I hope Pres. Kiir and others in capacities of leadership will replicate the spirit of serving the need of their people and the world to regain peace and trust in South Sudan.
Is Juba ready to welcome Dr. Riek for peace?
