Nov 2, 2016(Nyamilepedia) ——- Resort not to revenge on others when you lost in African cup or in African politic. I learn with great dismay that Kenyan security personnel arrested James Gatdet.

James Gatdet and some others in Kenya are among South Sudanese that are working tirelessly to bring permanent peace and stability in South Sudan.

Now in the dirty environment of South Sudan, Uganda and your country Kenya are fishing most of the South Sudanese Dollars. There are no terrible mistake from your side with that, because Salva Kiir’s regime want it that way.

After achieving a permanent peace and stability in South Sudan your country Kenya with some other neighboring countries are expected to have first line card of relation with south Sudan.

When achieving the permanent peace and stability in South Sudan in which your country Kenya is going to enjoy it fruits, James Gatdet’s sweats and sufferings are part of that achievement. For that ground I ask your authority kindly to offer a cup of water to James Gatdet and let him free. Do not let us to have bad memory about Kenya in the current situation. Israelites keep remembering up to date what happened to them in Germany but it has excellence relation with Germany.

Please, do not force South Sudanese to think only of Congo and Sudan. Take wise decision for interest of millions of Kenyan in future in South Sudan.

Regarding Commander Lieutenant General Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki, he is just a human being in African cup. Instead of lifting Kenya name up he let it down. You just be wise and accept the truth. Do not take revenge on others, because it will affect millions of Kenyans in future. Take reasonable revenge on yourself to avoid future mistake. Do not make Kenya to have division inside and enemies outside.

Arrest all Kenyans who are currently working with NGOs in liberated areas in order to show Kenya that the deported IO spokesperson is worthy thousands of useless Kenyans claiming to be intellectuals and takes best jobs in South Sudan.

I personally condemn the deliberate violations of the human rights:

Human rights violations under the UN Convention are any action that violates the personal freedom and rights of a human being. These violations may be caused by another individual who is acting on his or her own accord or under the influence of a group. Human rights violations may also be driven by a larger authority, such as a government or a dictator.

The forceful deportation of James Gatdet Dak by the Kenyan government to South Sudan is a violation of human rights. Human rights violations include slavery, torture and denial of the freedom of thought and movement. Many of these violations still occur on a daily basis throughout the world. This is an horrible action taken by the Kenya government in violation to the human rights. Mr. Dak was forced out of Juba during the massacre that killed over 20,000 Nuer civilians from December 15-19, 2013 and resided in Nairobi, Kenya for nearly three years with his family members as refugees.

According to Article 1 of that Convention, a refugee is someone who has fled his or her country “owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion.”

The UNHCR articulated that refugees are people fleeing conflict or persecution. They are defined and protected in international law, and must not be expelled or returned to situations where their life and freedom are at risk. At UNHCR, we have been assisting them for over half a century. Life as a refugee can be difficult to imagine. Then why would Kenya authorities handover a person to enemy? In this regard, Kenya is preaching the uselessness of the so called human rights that protect the life of vulnerable people.

The Kenyan government has to understand that the protection of refugees has many aspects. These include safety from being returned to the dangers they have fled; access to asylum procedures that are fair and efficient; and measures to ensure that their basic human rights are respected to allow them to live in dignity and safety while helping them to find a longer-term solution. States bear the primary responsibility for this protection. UNHCR therefore works closely with governments, advising and supporting them as needed to implement their responsibilities. But Kenya is acting out of the UN principals.
