THE RISE OF SELF-DECREED ‘KILLER KIIRLETS’ WITH STATE SWORD AND COMMUNITY SHIELD!

What we always deem constitutional and national has become personal. It has gone viral. Freedom of speech and association are criminalized and punished on the spot, outside the court of law. It is… Continue reading

SHOOTING FIRST, AIMING LATER… President Kiir’s Speech on 14/12/2016

However, the president’s call for FORGIVENESS, to me, is acceptable. I am for peace, so any means that will bring permanent peace, on condition it is sincerely inclusive, is welcomed!
Nevertheless, the president, for reasons that look like Ateny Wek’s or Aldo Ajou’s, browsed through our rich history of liberation without mention the name ‘Garang’! From the Chukudum Convention, to the Wunlit People-to-People Peace Initiative, through the CPA, South-South Dialogue, Juba Declaration, All Parties Convention (2010), Independence, to date, President Kiir has kept referring to the actors as ‘We, Us’. He mentioned some ‘I’s, but I still wonder why he runs a history-based speech of 2,562 words in 30 minutes without mentioning the name of his senior, the founding father of South Sudan!

TRUTH AT LAST: Why I Reveal My 10-Year-Old Secret Today…!

But why make it public now? It’s my brothers: my own brothers, my Bor bros, my friends, my fellow journalists, especially former classmates, college colleagues, the youth of South Sudan, the uncouth ones, who tempted me to do this…! They gave me sleepless nights for 10 years with all possible fabrications and prevarications on my own story of – not what but – why it happened to me. My brothers (10 names withheld here) have given me hell for since 2006. They have made a big hit out of it, though, it is now going to backfire on them. The reasons, they know it best. Maybe they think I am their competitor for a position of an area MP or those fake commissioners’ titles. I told some of them, personally, privately, that my career was not in direct politics, not in making riches out of CDF (Community Development Funds), that I am just a community development fan, that I have a talent to harness and harvest. Do they understand? Hell No!

HOW ATENY ‘WACK’ ATENY HAS GONE WACKIER AND LARGER THAN THE PRESIDENCY IN MATTERS NATIONALLY INTERNATIONAL

In matters ethical, as a parent and a disciple of discipline, I have learned that a child that has been pampered is not worth the child that has been tampered with. But Uncle Kiir by his leniency of negligence is donating his hard-earned legacy to this conflict-hardened ardent team of firebrand loyalists at the expense of his own history. One cannot imagine how much image of his the JCE (Jieng Council of Elders) had grabbed in the run up to the peace agreement. I say, Ateny and the clique should be tamed before he writes or utters another diplomatically damaging blunder. Or just wait and see!

BACK TO THE PULPIT FULL AND FIT WITH A MESSAGE APIECE FOR ‘RIECKONCILIATION IN THE KIIRISTIAN CHURCH’

Therefore, stop desecrating our church with your filthy politics of tribalism. Don’t you know that Emmanuel Parish is not for Bor, not in Bor, not under the Diocese of Bor, but under the Diocese of Juba managed by the Bishop of Juba, who doubles as the Archbishop of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan? Hey, did I mention that the head of this parish is the same Chairman for National Peace, Reconciliation and Healing Commission, His Grace Dr. Daniel Deng Bul? And that Dr. Riek Machar, President Salva Kiir and all of us, lay men and women in Christ, fall under him in the church, as he falls under the president and first vice president in the government through the said peace committee appointed by the president? So who are you to call Emmanuel Parish a Bor church that should be fenced off from the access of ‘other unclean members’, ya Brother ‘Saul Mading’?

TWO TYPES OF RIEK MACHAR IN THE MINDS OF BOR FOLKS

Just imagine the mood of the congregants who were listening to the First Vice President of South Sudan, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, in the Emmanuel (Jieng) Parish (Church) of our Saviour and Prince… Continue reading

KIZZA, ‘THE PIZZA’: ‘WON AND SWORN’ HIMSELF INTO MUSEVENI’S SEAT!

Interestingly, as Paul Kagame chose to busy himself with his home affairs, including the World Economic Forum, which was also attended by Uhuru Kenyatta and others, before they came down to Kampala, our Salva Kiir avoided that Kigali forum as well as the World Ant-Corruption Summit in London and instead spent the eve of the power ritual ceremony in Kampala. Of course, his interest is in how to swear his counterpart into power, not how to swirl his country out of the economic quaqmire.

GUEST WRITER: SHOE SHINER’S VALENTINE LETTER TO PRESIDENT SALVA KIIR

I am a shoe shiner. My dream target this year was to shine your presidential shoes this Valentine Day. Unfortunately, I could not even catch sight of your vehicles speeding on Ministry Road. The police and security whisk us away like flies from the roadside.

This is the reason why I want to take this service to your doorstep. There is no business. Those we used to shine shoes for complain of ‘gurus mafi’. That there is no money. They say the prices of oil have dropped. And then all the remaining oil money goes to Khartoum as fees for this and that. They say some people in the government have increased the exchange rate. Yet they are keeping the salaries and prices of commodities normally low.

CHRISTIANITY VERSUS ‘KIIRISTIANITY’: Kiir is neither GUILTY nor INNOCENT but ‘INNU-CENT’ on 28 States!

Indeed, if I were a prophetic cynic on this second day of the year, I would caution those Kiiristian celebrants on political and ethnic creation of 28 states to do so (celebrate) within an ecstatically hectic 28 days strictly. By the end of January, methinks, when the JMEC (Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission) of the ARCISS (peace agreement) together with all the oppo groups against the SPLM-IG, namely: SPLM-IO, SPLM-FD, SPLM-DC, SPLM-ETC., including the civil society, the evil society (killer vigilantes on tribal boundaries) and the international community have descended on the Big Man of South Sudan, the tone will change, the dance will fade into demonstrations against the revocation or suspension or debating of the Bantustans by the possibly or forcibly upcoming Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU). Just wait and see.

HOW AGUER PANYAANG HAS BEEN ‘NGAANG’: HALLOWED WITH A HOLLOW DEAL!

Before, I proceed, this note should be taken by the reader. I am not against federalism. I am hot against political feudalism. This baited appointment of leaders: governors and parliamentarians so that if they do not serve their people ‘kiiritically’, they could indefinitely be replaced with more permanent caretakers. I am the same person insulted here last here by those ‘Kiiristians’ who follow and flow with his political mood swinging. We are just asking, so what is the job of the incoming Ministry of Federal Affairs that would be sworn in under TGoNU in January , according to the agreement?

SUNDAY QUESTION: Does ‘J’ Stand for ‘Jieng’ or ‘Jesus’ in that ‘Parish’?

By the way, my concern was not only in our ‘Jieng’ name being used in religion and politics but also in the phonetics or technical sounding of the name. It actually appears as if ‘Emmanuel Jieng’ was a certain South Sudanese saint or church legend like Daniel Deng Atong, Archibald Shaw or ‘Machuor’, the founder of Protestant Christianity in South Sudan. Thence, I would request that the name be reversed or reserved till later as ‘Nathaniel Garang Parish’, if we shy away from giving God what is God’s and Caesar what is Caesar’s. I mean, if we are too mean with the name, then let’s bestow it upon ‘Nathaniel Garang’ instead of ‘Emmanuel Jieng’, which has no role in the evangelization that brought about the civilization of this nation.

ON THE CASE OF AHEU DENG KUDUM: WHO IS BRINGING DOWN YOUTH TALENTS IN SOUTH SUDAN?

As the war of greedy is raging in our motherland, our young ladies have been attacked! To use an unconventional language, they are being raped everywhere: sexually abused, socially raped, politically raped and economically raped. How? Wait a minute.

MODEL AHEU DENG: DEFAMED BUT FOUND INNOCENT

Furthermore, an investigation carried out by a committee in which she was not supposed to be part of, ideally, reinforced and corroborated her innocence .The model was subpoenaed by the investigation committee to testify and as an abiding and responsible citizen, she appeared before the same. The investigation was led by the Head of Anti-Corruption and the Prosecutor General. Based on her sworn in testimony, it made a conclusive determination that she was not involved in any financial impropriety and the committee gave her okay to continue discharging her obligations under the conditions of the contract after having carefully scrutinized all receipts and relevant documentation.

JUST A FORUM, NOT A QUORUM…!

From the below detailed summary of the session of November 19, 2015, no quorum was arrived at to pass the constitutional amendment motion. This is besides the fact that the numbers given to the speaker to announce, as linked in his voice cue here, were trumped up at the gate when entrants were signing in. Some sources said even body guards of the MPs and other staffers of the parliament were made to sign in so that the final list is submitted to the Speaker.

WHO OWNS ALIER ATENY?

His conviction of joining the SPLM-IO was not to fight the people of Bor but to help them get the truth about this war and protect them from further massacres. It is worth reminding that Alier on his arrival from Australia witnessed the Bor attacks live in Baidit during that ill-fated Christmas season, only to join the same attackers 6 months later. There must be a big reason behind this decision. He demonstrated this in Pagak in a Bor Community meeting on the IGAD consultation proposal in December 2014. Chaired by Jesus Deng Atem as Bor Community leader in the SPLM-IO, which I attended, the meeting came out with the following demands addressed in writing to Chairman Riek Machar.

THE GUNMEN REPUBLIC: ‘BakoSorry’ Released But His Parliament Speaker Gunned Down…!

I won’t open any case. You see, in our country, if one speaks lies one will be promoted but if one speaks the truth one will be demoted. I was told I am free to move, but I would like to gain some energy first.

Also, I would like to meet the President face to face and express my joy.

HOW ‘NAIROBBERS’ TEMPORARILY SHUT MY LIFE DOWN…!

What pissed me off was not all that I have narrated. The problem I always face in the police, across the borders, in other public places is the question of the burden of nationality. I am asked questions supposed to be directed to Salva Kiir or Riek Machar, or the top echelon of the national mess, for that matter. Why have you broken up your new nation? We hear Kenyans have been arrested in Sudan (to mean South Sudan)! Why are you killing your own people? and so on.

All in all, if we have not played with our nation, our lives, robbers, thieves, con artists, police, street families, etc. would not make money on us.

A THANK-YOU NOTE FROM MAKERERE TO ALL THE BROTHER’S KEEPERS OF MINE

I cannot forget my own community brothers and friends who made me come back here, including those who might have withdrawn their support, leaving me in this maddening suspense, on flimsy excuses of my being antagonistic to the government of the day (according to rumours). I still love them because they would still help me in the future, when I have changed my heart (Inshallah), or when they have changed their hearts, or when the leaders of our country have changed their hearts and united our split-down-to-the-family nation as such. More of this will come in the Part Two of this series.

OPEN LETTER TO JCE: YOUR SCAPEGOAT POLITICS AND TRIBAL ACTIVISM ARE DESTROYING OUR NATION

Without wasting time on that long letter aimed at creating a scapegoat, I have got what I wanted already in that opening paragraph. Hypocrisy, escapism and threat against the people who tell the truth in South Sudan. Unfortunately, most of such things are done in the collective name of the largest ethnic group in South Sudan by a minority of recyclable politicians who use their innocent communities as pawns in the war of political power maintenance. The most unfortunate part of this story is the way straight talkers like Mac Paul Kuol Awar are being fronted to the community as the villains of the war. Just by telling the truth, which is sworn in an oath before a witness speaks, a certain group that calls itself the name of the whole tribe is misleading the communities to shift from the culprits of the war to the scapegoats like Mac (pronounced ‘mach’) and those named in the report. The method of coercion of support is threefold, as done through allegiance to tribe as seen in Agel Machar’s reason of defection here, bribe, which is offered in terms of cash money, job or other favours, and threats. Threat of use of force is always the last resort as in Agel Machar’s picture here, again.

BEWARE OF BUTUMANIA, MAGELTHIALISM, AND THE POLITICS OF ‘DIVIDE-AND-RUIN’ IN THIS NEW ERA OF ERROR OF SOUTH SUDAN!

The system was championed by Gen. Joseph Lagu against Mr. Abel Alier, both of whom ruled the southern region in turns according to the 1972 Addis Ababa Peace Agreement that gave Juba a very loose autonomy, which was tethered in Khartoum. Surprisingly, Gen. Joseph Lagu is currently a presidential adviser to Salva Kiir. The rest of this story of ‘divide-and-ruin’ politics is kept for history here and hereafter.
