July 30th 2014 (Nyamilepedia)- I am a survivor of Juba Massacre. I narrowly escaped the death from Presidential Guards to UNMISS in Jebel-UN House last December 2013 in Juba. After one month, I decided with other colleagues to walk on foot to Nadapal border between South Sudan and Kenya.

I started touring the region’s Refugee camps, only to find UN shelter to stay. But I see the conditions; people are suffering in United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNIMISS) residents. Because of the current regime that is killings the civilians, I decided to join the fighting alongside with White Army, defending my civil rights that were violated by Salva Kiir and his loyalists in the government.

Hence, after I realized that staying in the Camp was not absolute, I decide to join the rebellion to fight the dictatorial regime that has killed my people in Juba on the 16th, 17th and 18th of December 2013 without any bases.

In the UNMISS camp I was in, there was no clinic, only simple tablets that does not help the body when once is sick.

Thereafter, I decided to be better killed in fighting while defending my freedoms and the generations to come than to die of curable disease or starvation.

In South Sudan people are suffering in many ways, suffering at the front line is just one of them.

I need peace, but I see no peace makers

Inter-governmental Authority on development (IGAD) is doing nothing in  the Peace process, only 1% on average.

The involvement of Uganda army plus other five foreign sections fighting alongside the fatal government of Juba, prolonged the War up to now and still they will not withdraw if no one fights them. They get paid for staying in South Sudan.

If my brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandparents were intentionally killed, what is my hope going’ to be in this world? Only bullet is an answer.

As Nationalist and patriotic young man, I am calling you men who are suffering together with their kids and mothers in the refugee camps to better join fighting for our civil constitutional rights that have been hijacked by government of Kiir Mayardit.
