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?

    Mr. Kiir is a problem to republic of South Sudan even peace is signed it will not go ahead because what in their mind is to assassin Riek Machar. president of the country can’t be a cowboy and you suspect peace from his government, that is truly a controdication because cowboy life is stealing, rapping, looting and killing to take right of others I may not by accurate in definition but still close to it. to make it more worst the friends of the president are proud that hat was given by President of the first nation (USA), that was George W. Bush that time, so the point is this, if hat is a good attire for president why H.E. Bush himself didn’t wear one on his head to the white house? therfore th answer I think is this ,Bush might have already read Mr. Kiir mentality that is not more than cowboy mentality that why he provided him with something that fit his mind.

      The major concern of South Sudanese citizens is to achieve Peace and to allow them to govern themselves among their states. The Transitional National Unity Government of South Sudan must compromise to make sure that a common resolutions on Federal states is agreed by all parties including teh people in the villages of south Sudan. Our parliament is the weakest parliament in the world because they do not know the rights and they allow the President Kiri to just foolishly decide the affairs of teh Nation with Ambrose Ring, Bonal Malual..Joseph Dau Dau ..all these cowards that run into UK, to USA and to Australia when Dr.Garang was fighting the war against teh North Sudan ..Now the the eneies of south Sudan such a s Bona Malual are feeding themselves to their Nose and to tehir elbows ,because we haev illiterate president that is Kiir that can not think positively about teh all Nation. but only JIENG -Dinka affairs. we have along way to go. the problem is not Kiir Mayardit ,but his Jieng council of elders. there should not be any council of elders tat influence Govern,ent.The government must function by itself with adequate ministers. … Just to Pray and to ask God to save the People of South Sudan from this Tyranny Dictaorir Salva Kiir Mayardit and his Dinka-Council of Elders(JCE).

    Dear Readers who use this media, it is unfortunate for our leader such as Dr. Riek Machar to talk about reconciliation, healing and forgiveness, before killer kiir mayardit still not admitting what he did to Nuer innocent people as a crime of humanity and violation of human rights a claimed elected president could do to the same people who elected him to power. The South Sudan will never experience any peace, since it is being run by two governments, namely: the Republic Of South Sudan and Dinka council of elders who from time to time opposes and refuses the former’s decision.
