The famous phrase -Better safe than sorry- is truly a way forward for a particular cause
April 12, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — My dearest community at large, concern citizens of South Sudan at home and in diaspora, Chair of SPLM/A I-O under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon and all other immediate community members. I want to bring to your intention some development which could be of a concern to the movement as the current opposition military and political force battling the current leadership of H.E President Salva Kiir Mayardit.
The current conflict has taken many lives yet it feels like more lives are to be taken before we can all sort our internal problems. I want to be crystal clear on where I stand in this imposed crisis that has ravaged our country South Sudan beyond recovery level. When this internal war or many observers and critics describes it as political turmoil begun in late 2013, the whole community was in disbelieve because everyone were living in harmony under many hopes and dreams. The hope of a country that we can all call our own, the hope of better education for future generations to come, the hope of reconciliation from our past mistakes.
The massacre occurred during the time most of the well known generals where close ally and very much active force under the leadership of president Salva Kiir were Nuer by Ethnicity and some were from other tribe so what really happen?
Few high ranking generals like the living lion aka Jundi Iraq or Gen Peter Gatdet Yak by his real name decided from the initial phase of this long conflict that the people who got massacred were innocent so they defect immediately without delays so why did it take most generals or brigadiers or other ranks with high military profiles background and few politicians to take time sometime 6 months plus before they can decide? Is something ringing alarm bell here?
Another fact is, while defection is good because its a justifiable conscience act undertaken by individuals because they have no other alternative means of settling their problems, the oppressor or the problem maker should take the opportunity to prevent this from happening so did the Juba Government prevented Gen Gatwech Pouch from joining the ranks under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar? Is anything ringing the alarm bell here? And why did he blame Douth Guet for what happen to Nuer people while defending Salva Kiir? I don’t want to be seen as the maniac here but facts must be told and I am maniac for pointing out the truths.
Could it be that Juba Government and Ugandan Government under the leadership of H.E Yoweri K Museveni have hidden agendas as a result of recent high ranking military and intelligence personnel to SPLM/A I-O? Agents spies?
We need to be very careful. As much as I would like to congratulate many recent renegades to the opposition, I also reject the fact that many supporters or the actual leadership of SPLM/A oppose the controversial assumption that few people within the opposition ranks might very well be spies and agents to the JUBA Government under overall command of Yoweri K Museveni of Uganda. We cannot afford to prolong this war, our innocent people are dying in UN-IDP Camps and across South Sudan because of certain people playing cat and mice game.
I am calling on the leadership of SPLM/A I-O to immediately scrutinise any military individual while being under heavy surveillance for your own sake and the movement survival. As we continue to struggle for peace to end this conflict, let us not be confined in contributing our ideas and thoughts. We must continue to voice our concerns, we must continue to work hard because it is the best thing you could ever do to help out if other means are out of reach.
