Nov 27, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Just like any other woman around the world, Mama Rebecca Nyandeng D’Mabior humbled herself in front of her husband’s tomb to apologize and to tell him about how the country has been suffering in the past two years. Children have been killed, women and disables have been displaced, old where raped and the young ones were left for the mercy of wild animals .
The mother came back to apologize to her husband and the nation saying; “we are better than this. We are sorry about what happened, forgive us” It is time for South Sudanese as a nation to also say that we are better than this and we can do better to achieve more in the next two years than what we have achieved in the past two years. The country has been destroyed because of personal interests but we can achieve much together.
We are better and can achieve much in the next two years in unity and forgiveness and it will be better for all of us because peace will always bless us once more. Our children will always prosper in a peaceful and in a conducive environment where peace, love, unity and justice is embrace than personal interests of power greed and of tribal interests.
Down on her knees, in front of her husband tomb, Mama Rebecca D’Mabior saw the future of the country in dismay. Much respectful to her husband, the beloved leader of our nation, she bow down as she always did since the first time she met him.
Affirming her commitment to him, she said “I am here to redeem myself to you and to the nation.” The same commitment that’ she did to him for years.
I believe, it was nice to see her coming back to the country because we need peace than war. We need development than personal interest, money being taken away and deposited in foreign banks.We need commitment than blames. We need honesty than fooling each other. These are whats will takes South Sudanese to the promised land than fighting for powers and positions.
We didn’t expect our country would be torn apart because of personal interests and greed. We knew that our leaders can deliver the needed political good which our people have been yarning for.
This is the time for our leaders to kneel down and ask forgiveness in front of the nation, whether in the government, in exile or in the the bush; as G10 have done it today in front our founding father, Dr. John Garang D’Mabior. Doing this will makes citizens of South Sudan Sudan to seek unity and to recommit themselves to the commitment of freedom, unity and prosperity as our national anthem says: “We vow to protest our nation”.
This commitment is a paramount duty of our men and women in uniform and we cannot be achieved when we’re divided, and when we put our personal interests first. It doesn’t matter what tribe you’re from, how many states and powers you want. National interests always comes first and it will make us more united as South Sudanese.
We need to understand that the development of South Sudan is not a one person’s jobs or tribal elites; it is a duty of the citizens of South Sudan no matter wherever they are. Everyone has her/ his own right to express their interest in being a leader any time but only in peaceful ways. It doesn’t matter how powerful you are or what tribe you are from as our constitution says; you have to be South Sudanese and to have met the qualifications. We need peace not war; I hope that’s what you have brought.
