Poetically Political Letter to TGONU BOSSES: I WANT THIS WAR DEAD!

NB: This ‘Ditism’ factor is seen in how they can just feel like nothing has happened after killing thousands of their citizens. I was downtrodden yesterday (26/04/2016) when President Kiir profusely apologized to the international community, mentioning them by name, one after another, in his peace partner’s welcoming speech, but just one quick sentence and in reference to their previous quack apologies to the victims of their war of power greed in South Sudan. I guess Riek also did so in his unwritten swearing speech, just as they did it in a blanket apology in Arusha. I just shrugged it off and put it bluntly to my fellow backstage protestors, “Yea, he apologizes for money: the KiiRiek duo wants to finance their government, so they apologize, but for having done nothing, to their masters. But who are you, citizens of South Sudan? Are you anybody’s master?”

THE JUB’A’D’DIS’AGREEMENT: 4-Comment-based Analyses of How Peace was Undone in Juba Consultation Meeting

From the negotiators point of view, it is always almost impossible for two or more armies to accept the political armistice and march in their columns into each other’s parades under one C-in-C from the day one of the signatures by the non-military signatories in a political gimmick fanned and funded by foreign dignitaries. So what should be done? It is known. It takes time to mobilize or demobilize, reintegrate or disintegrate the highly tribalized militias and the falsely politicized soldiers into a professional and conventional national army. This time is called ‘pre-interim period’. It is the time during which the troops are wild and resentful to their own political and military leaders, leave alone ‘cross-leaders’ forced on their traumatized ranks and files by the peace documents. Unless we are postponing the war, we should not rush those wild armies like the White Armies, Mathiang-Anyor, etc. into one camp before they are cleansed from PSTD (Post-Trauma Stress Disorder).
