April 19, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—-I failed to understand when I got the news that South Sudan government was killing innocent civilian in the country. and we all know any government characteristics is to govern its members and to ensure that life runs smoothly.
The rule are also meant to control people and encourage certain kind of behavior, .again I fail to hear that south Sudan government still claiming about legitimacy, a government should be accountable to the people over whom it exercise power.
The organization of regular Elections enhances legitimacy unfortunately, south Sudan government fail to safeguard her legitimacy by killing its citizens.
In every government law enforcement is the priority, the government has the authority to take actions against those who violate its laws.government sovereignty; the government has the supreme authority to exercise power within its jurisdictions.
Jurisdictions; this is the geographical area within which a government exercise power and enforces laws. in my view if south Sudan to follow up those examples.
why are they claiming to be legitimate government? Juba government day and night is talking of democracy or Elected president.
Democracy; is a government of the people by the people and for the people it meant the rule of the people or its a form of governing where power rests with the people/political decisions are directly in the hand of citizens.
Its also describes as government in which the people participate directly or indirectly through representatives.
President kiir made a mistake by ordering his private armies call Gelweng or dutkubany to killed innocent Nuer.
The UN charter on human rights has indicated very clear that;
1 all human being are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
2 every one is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration, without distinction of any kind such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political, or other opinion, national, or social origin, property, birth or other status.
3 No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel inhuman or degranding treatment or punishment.
4 No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest detention or exile.
5 every one is entitle in full equality to a fair and pubic hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal in the determination of their rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against them.
In my own opinion, Kiir must be held accountable for killing of innocent Nuer in Juba.
Long Live South Sudan
Long Live SPLM-IO
