THE WAR FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE IS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT!
Written by Deng S. Elijah
December 22, 2013(Nyamilepedia)-– Democratic change can be fought ideologically or physically. The reason South Sudanese fought for over 50 years was NOT to create a “buffer” state that would be geographical defined. They fought for self-determination and democracy. These are broad terms that carry so much more than the territorial integrity.
That so much is fading and South Sudanese are now targeting one another based on their ethnicity and culture, instead of fighting the bigger goal. Nuer and Dinka are being turned into Hutu and Tutsi of Rwanda, just in our watch, in 21st century. But they(Dinka and Nuer) must know that this is NOT a tribal war; it is a democratic war and a national war that the current system couldn’t handle politically. People should know that this is the right they fought for over 50 years.
Politically, the call for democracy has been winning and uniting the senior politicians from all over the country, however, the enemy of democracy lost hopes to retain their comfort zones (autocracy) and now resorted to use missiles, jets and tanks against the innocent civilians.
Nuer were philosophically targeted because of their volatile warrior-ism, that would turn the national interest into tribal, and divert attention. This was a covert practice to cover the ill intentions behind the plotted coup. But since this has not yet materialized, the TRUE enemy has flown into Juba with jets and other parts of the country, bombing citizens without mercy. These must be universally condemned.
South Sudanese should know that these would be the last kicks of a dying horse, if South Sudanese unite, otherwise, they would wish, they knew that “ a chance knocks once”. If what Museveni and Kiir are cooking succeeds, South Sudanese would regret fighting for separation. The architects for dictatorial regimes have succeeded in many parts of Africa through massacres, tribal rifts and divide and rule tactics. From Libya to Uganda, dictators have been fitting the innocent citizens against one another based on their identities, and South Sudan isn’t any different. The Nuer ethnic group that is being used as a means to an end in South Sudan, and suffers on both ends, is like the African decent (black) Libyans that the Gaddaffi used to sustain his dictatorial regime in Libya. The Nuer ethnic group would one day realize the consequences of this trait.
South Sudanese must know that Gaddaffi trained Museveni to be the dictator he is today and Museveni trained Paul Kageme of Rwanda (although Kagame has unique traits). For the last 8 years, Museveni has been training Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan to be another dictator in the Eastern African region. This self-imposed coup was the primary graduation of the young dicator, Salva Kiir Mayardit.
The region has been taken over by dictators. Five out of seven (5/7) countries in the region are being ruled by dictators and South Sudan is now joining the list. Museveni has a lion share interest in South Sudan politics and his current military intervention must speak in volumes. Museveni is the eldest and the worse dictator in the region controlling politics in Uganda, Rwanda, DRC, Burundi, and now South Sudan. This is the devil that the South Sudanese must eliminate in their territory. He has very ill intentions and the worse secrets to cover (the death of Dr. John Garang, one of the founding fathers of South Sudan). This must be universally condemned.
Because the majority of South Sudanese are NOT aware of this, I will release a full article that would expose this evil plan. MUSEVENI KILL DR. JOHN GARANG, AND HE WILL DO EVERYTHING TO ELIMINATE DR. RIEK MACHAR (the champion of self-determination and the father of democratic change), GARANG FAMILY AND GARANG BOYS IN SOUTH SUDANESE POLITICS.
I’m hundred percent (100%) convinced that Museveni assassinated Dr. John Garang and Maj. Gen George Athor, who fought against Kiir in 2010 in call of democratic process.
South Sudanese must join this War. We are fighting something beyond democratic change. This is the cause that killed over 4 millions South Sudanese in the last five decades.
