March 21, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) — South Sudanese news editor said on Friday that President Kiir’s speech at a political rally this week was not a good language, pointing out that the speech was filled with divisive tones.

Duop Chak Wuol, the editor-in-chief of the US-based South Sudan News Agency, blasted Kiir’s speech on his social media page using what appeared to be a deliberate language aimed at South Sudan’s President views on proposed United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions and ‘God-claim’ Kiir made this week at a political rally in Juba.

“Salva Kiir met with a God at an undisclosed location, signed a rain-pumping deal, and was informed that a significant amount of rainfall will occur,” Duop wrote.

“The agreement is expected to bring enough rain to South Sudan — and presumably counter the threat of looming United Nations sanctions,” he added.

When reached by phone, Duop said he believes Kiir used a disparaging language at the rally and revealed that he thought the speech was a joke when he first saw it, adding “Kiir utterly lost it.”

“When I was reading the speech, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me. After I compared my copy with several other copies of the document, I realized that the speech was merely written to further divide the people of South Sudan and I believe Kiir utterly lost it.”

The president of South Sudan on Wednesday claimed that UNSC sanctions will not deter him. Kiir also argued that punitive measures against his country will not work, unless God agree with those who want to punish the young nation to stop the raining in his country.

“If people are talking about sanctions about South Sudan unless they go up and agree with God to stop the raining in South Sudan…” Kiir told his supporters at the rally.

Kiir, who addressed his supporters at a political rally on Wednesday, also disclosed that he is not willing to share power with his rival, Dr. Riek Machar.

Fighting erupted in December 2013 after months of political turmoil between senior leaders of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) party.

    It doesn’t matter. 5,000 years of history and what have you accomplished?
    Maybe one day someone will say all this killing makes no sense. Then someone else say it, then enough people will say it, then the killing will stop. What would you like to see Southern Sudanese accomplish over the next 5 to 10 years.
