By Lat Kuem Thiran,
May 12, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– Allow me to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to you for forming Government of National Unity despite the odds.
As South Sudanese living in one of our neighboring countries, I do appreciate your quiet awaited mercy toward our country peace.
Today unity government has been formed and it’s not yet clear whether it will neither turn as friendship system nor mitigating the entire population demand.
However, President Kiir has severally apologized to his citizens whom he toured them on lorry yet there is no good sign of peace. How can we call this agreement?
Hereinafter, December 15th was the day when South Sudan’s crisis began. From its onset, the conflict was marked by brutal tribal hatred which trend down from the top leadership as president Salva Kiir constantly warned of “1991”.
The crisis which immediately turned violence is known for its ethnic cleansing of the Nuer tribe in which over 20, 000 Nuer civilians and a few from other minorities were murdered in a cold blood by presidential militia under President Salva Kiir’s leadership.
Subsequent killing of thousands of Nuer ethnic group during a house-to-house search mass curfew, in what would be the greatest tragedy in the history of South Sudan, led to violence protests from the White Army and many Nuer sons and daughters in the army across the Greater Upper Nile region leading to mass destruction of lives and property.
In remembrance of this day, hundreds of South Sudanese, predominantly Nuer, run to UNMISS camp for safety that took them at least until today.
Therefore it seemed to be no happiness; mood of sadness could be seen among the emotional old women seated helplessly crying, mourning Stheir loved ones, (because peace has not reach the Greater Upper Nile which CDE Kiir didn’t lifted the State of Emergency).
Some of these States lost people who were very dear to them, their only sources of hopes. While sons and daughters were killed, little grand children were victimized, rapped, and burned alive or castrated by loyal troops. Perhaps, even properties, who led people life as human was also consumed by the memories of this day.
I personally doubt because their voices trembled in sadness!
Hence, in commemorates of the miserable massacre of civilians whose suffer under the leadership of Salva Kiir which began on Tuesday morning of December 15, 2013 we will not forget it but will it be live?
