UGANDA AND THE BLOWN UP LIFE-TIME-OPPORTUNITY
By: Gatgong Koang Thany,
May 25, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—The republic of Uganda our Country’s Neighbor to the South East and one of SPLM/A’s long-time friend and supporter especially Dr. Garang’s Faction, a bleeding Nation herself infested with notorious rebellion , Uganda is among the many African Nations suffocating from a tight-grip of a wild dictator.
It’s notably however one the few African states that stood strongly and openly with the SPLM/A-Torit faction, besides provisions of arms, training and strategic Military assistance, strategic regional and International Diplomatic links and accessibility which was desperately needed to sell-out the Moment’s grievances and objectives to the Continent and the World at large, Uganda also provided the rebellion and her population a safe haven and a home,
Under Mr.Yuweri Kaguta Museveni, Uganda utilized its alliance with the SPLA not only to dismantle the bloody rebellion toward her northern territories (the Lord Resistant Army/L.R.A, but also in collaboration with the then Southern Guerrilla Moment to squander wealth in the vast Equotoria region under the rebel control then, millions worth of wealth stolen in the regions by the allies included but not limited to; Gold, rhino-horns, Elephants tasks, leopards skins among other valuable wealth, in the process the duo-destroyed the region’s ecosystem brutally especially the destruction of the wild life most of which were wiped out through poaching or migrated toward Congo and other safer places.
Given the long strategic relationship between the Southern Sudanese and their Ugandans brothers, both sides simply and commonly referred to each other as either brother or comrade, sadly that beautiful friendship and highly held trust was tainted when Mr.Kaguta, collaborated with unknown evil forces and on 21-06-2005, assassinated his long-time friend, and the Leader of the South Sudanese Struggle Dr. John Garang De Mabior, who brutally died in an Helicopter crash, the World cover-up his visible hands and instead lured Garang’s incompetent and unfortunate Deputy with his Seat, that was the beginning of the conspiracy to hijack the South Sudanese Independence which was foreseeable and place the young-Nation to be under wild-invisible forces under the custodianship of none other the Museveni Himself.
Moreover the President of Uganda is not new to crimes, he is believed to be behind every crying child’s woes through the Eastern and even parts of central Africa, he is believed to be the sole culprit behind the destruction and most conflicts some of which are still raging on throughout the horn of Africa and beyond, in all these Countries namely;
The Rwandan Genocide, Museveni is named by all reports and all accounts, the Congo which he fueled and utilized to annex the Mineral rich province of Congo on the Ugandan-Congo border, the Burundian turmoil, the Sudanese Crisis of Darfur which he personally ran and Managed, the Kenyan Post-election violent of 2007-2008 where he was accused of Collaborating with the incumbent to rigged the democratic process and later crossed the border with his ill-mannered forces to shoot at un armed innocent protesters in Nyanza Province, the Stronghold of Kenyan Opposition Leader, Raila Amolo Odinga, resulting in to high number of death, and lastly our current devastating anarchy which he planned and executed under the direct watch of the Whole-world, based on this enumerated facts its only logical to admit that under its current leader, Uganda is indeed a curse to the Region and the Continent as a whole.
Coming back to the relationship between the Jinubiin and the banana republic, as generous as they are, South Sudanese despite Garang Assassination by Museveni, forgave Ugandans and continued their brotherly links with them, as evidenced by the abnormal influx of Ugandans in to South Sudanese Cities immediately after the inking of the C.P.A, but to figure-up the scales and vitality of this relationship, it is important to revisit the state-of-affairs in Uganda prior to the attainment of self-autonomy in South Sudan.
Until the signing of the Comprehensive peace agreement, between the Southern Rebel and Omer Al-Bashir’s Ingaz Government, Uganda was one of the poorest Nations on Earth, with a decimal Growth Domestic Product/GDP, depending greatly on Foreign Loans and hand-outs from well-wishers to feed its huge and hungry population, the Nation was insignificant and unknown in the World affairs, especially in positive and progressive fronts, it was however infamous for her former notorious dictator Idi Amin Dada, its staggering HIV-AIDS Prevalent and its horrific, highly exaggerated, unclassified and incorrectly reported L.R.A activities.
However with the ink on the papers for Sudanese peace , and the enthusiastic implementation process that follows, Uganda acquired the injection it requires to rejuvenate and accelerate both its economy, social and Political life, money never lie, and that is so true in UG’s Case, taking full-advantage of the naivety of the young-Autonomous region/later young State, coupled with extravagance-corrupt-consumption, the compensatory approach toward Uganda and other brotherly Nations and the absent of trade regulations, the results was miraculous pragmatic economic leap for Uganda, the onetime zero economy suddenly boomed and flourish, arousing jealousies from other neighbors who rightly felt locked out of the abundant wealth from the new land which Uganda Singly dominated and controlled, basically Uganda earned Hundreds of Millions if not billions of Foreign exchange from her-one-traffic trade with South Sudan, its export to South Sudan is the largest compared to any other Country in the Continent ranging from 60-70% , from food items, techno-wares, cheap-labor-force despite the fact that more than 85% of the Country’s Population is Jobless, automobiles (including the corruptly acquired V8s,HUMMERS & other luxurious Fuel-guzzlers),liquors, 2rd-hands clothes , Prostitutions and others. With such a huge stake, the Crane Nation have the greatest interest in South Sudan and stood to gain even more from a democratic, Prosperous South Sudan.
Unfortunately, under the misguidance of her rotten-headed-Leader, Uganda decided to set-fire on the source of the very food she feed-fat-on, in other word the Banana Republic ‘sit on the plate’ containing her food hence spoiling the meal, quite the probable Nuer ‘dog-satisfaction Proverb’ e ni Riang Jiokni te wangke Kuakien, by conspiring and supporting destruction and war in South Sudan, Uganda had indeed bitten the hand that feed it and lifted her out from the deep-well-of-poverty it had suffered from for decades, supposedly Kampala, as a brother and given her huge stake in the Country, should have lead from the fronts in finding a just-means for peaceful resolutions to the brotherly crisis brewing from the SPLM-internal differences by offering herself as an impartial mediator, unfortunately , Museveni took side and the wrong side for that matter, by siding with the perpetrators of genocide, Mr. Kaguta, exposed himself and confirm our long-held suspicion that he was indeed the sole mastermind of the whole thing in South Sudan and those that befall other nations before us,
Dressed in Banana-colored- tie, and his old-fashioned-hat, visibly under influence of whisky, likely bought with our oil money, Museveni hijacked South Sudanese internal feud and declared his allegiance with one side to the conflict before the conflict could even take shape, thus in a televised statement, he promised to arrest the ‘’so called’’ coup plotters, until today the world waiting for him to deliver on that uncalculated outburst, month later, sensing eminent defeat on the March toward Juba he resorted to use of banned weapons to halt a steady advancing freedom fighters, so at Gamiza, they dropped cluster-bombs, chlorine-gases and other lethal weapons, since then Ugandan and dinka’s Gelweng Militias have fought side by side, aided by JEMS & SPLM-North Militias plus the so called Nuer-weuw-Militias, who had since abandoned their course, these ill-allies are responsible for some of the worst atrocities and crimes against humanity committed so far throughout the War, as the war rages on with untold brutalities and suffering the citizens especially those of Greater Uppernile Region, Museveni presented himself as the only obstacle to attainment of peace, optimizing and utilizing the earnings from the Mercenary-pays he received from Juba, he hopes and pray for nothing besides escalation of the war which according to miss-guided assumption would mean sustained incomes to fill empty stomachs back in Uganda.
In conclusion, time is the never a-failing-and-the-greatest- healer of all time, therefore it does not matter how painful and how long this cancerous-illness killing our Nation today may take, time shall eventually triumph, besides the belated disaffection by all quarters with the Juba Regime, namely the Dollar revolution, eminent economic Collapse, wakening International Community that’s finally and lately seeing and accepting that Juba regime is a murderous monster that deserves nothing but quick-disbandment and prosecution at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for its heinous Crimes against Humanity coupled with unfolding local circumstances , like the shift in some allegiances, notably the recent welcome defection of Gen. Johnson Olony, might be the beginning of a critical change in the dimension of War all together, the people of Uppernile whose region is ravaged the most by this conflict might decide to say enough is enough and unite to drive the enemy out of their territories, that would also mean the closure of the only functional oil Facility in the Country , the Paloch Oil Field that would be the last nail needed to sail the Coffin of the Son of Kuethpiny Lual’s Government , also worth noting is the brewing mass uprising throughout the greater Equotoria Region, like the People of greater uppernile and other disadvantaged parts of Country they are saying enough is enough, they could no longer remain silent while their leaders and intellectuals and being continuously selectively targeted and assassinated, in fact the last week defection and eventual Munduri Capture is just a teaser, with Paloch padlocked, soon there shall be no oil Money hence no pay to Museveni, JEM and other Mercenaries, when that happen , I don’t need to tell you what shall follow because that is an obvious guess.
With new, conscious authority in place, a federated state in which people decides their fate, who to be friend with, who to welcome home and who not to , Ugandan having destroyed the UpperNile Mercilessly shall with no doubts be the persona-non-gran ta in that region which is fortunately the Country’s lifeline.
Once the tyranny in Juba is ousted which is likely to happen sooner or later, our long-time friend, Uganda stand to lose greatly and in a long-term, the next government will see Uganda as the enemy it actually is, any diplomatic and commercial relationship shall be freeze or killed all together, the border might be closed at once and once important busy-routes emptied and diverted to other directions , remnants of Ugandans that shall remained within the Country after Salva Kiir’s fall shall be treated as spy for the enemy and shall be smoked out.
Only then will Museveni realize what a stupid blunder he did for his country, and all Ugandans shall all wake-up to the sad realization that they indeed did bombed and blown-up their life time Opportunity.
