Former Governor: World Must Prevent Another Genocide in South Sudan
Oct 16, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– South Sudan’s Former Governor of Western Equatoria State, Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro, calls on the international community, IGAD, TROIKA and the African Union to avert another Rwanda genocide in South Sudan.
“Before 1994 genocide in Rwanda, there was an early warning about Rwanda security threats but the International Community did not act quickly, and as a result the world witnessed the worse killings in modern history.” Said the former Governor, Joseph Bakosoro.

“I am giving an early warning that the security situation in South Sudan under the current leadership of Salva Kiir and his clique might grow worse than the current outlook, and should be handled with care before the worse happens. CURE EARLY CANCER BEFORE IT BECOMES CRONIC. Let us all stand up to save lives than to destroy.” Bakosoro continued.
Appeals To The International Community
Due to lack of government in South Sudan, Bakosoro appeals to the international community and TROIKA to critically study and help to prevent another bloodbath in South Sudan since the government has failed.
“As I cannot again appeal to a Government which does not exist, I am appealing to the International community, IGAD, Troika, US to critically study South Sudan situation and help as soon as it can to save the lives of targeted civilians. I am informing the International body that South Sudan situation may or is already more than Kosovo, Somalia, and is leading to Rwanda 1994 genocide.” Bakosoro states.
While Salva Kiir government is focusing on isolated incidents in Equatoria and using the national budget to kill or isolate Dr. Riek Machar Teny, the founder of South Sudan Independent Movement, Chairman and Commander-in-chief of the SPLM/A in opposition, Bakosoro believes that the government has failed the country.
More Killing of Civilians By Government Tribal Militias
The former governor warns that South Sudan killing is more than what is reported or seen on television, which only represents the interest of the government or that of Salva Kiir’s Dinka tribe.
“Why? Because the silent killings are greater than the ones you hear and see. There are thousands being slaughtered in cold blood every day that nobody is aware of.” Bakosoro said.
He said the government does not condemn the killing of other non-dinka tribes that is being carried out by well armed government forces and militias.
“When the Government is condemning killings of innocent Dinkas, the same government is killing innocent non-Dinkas but without condemnation. It means that the government is not objective. Thousands of civilians in Bahr El Ghazal, Upper Nile, and Equatoria are undergoing the most terrible sufferings in silence and yet the government goes on to deceive the world and International community that everything is fine.” He explains.
“Is that the government of the people, by the people and for the people?” Bakosoro asks.
