While it doesn’t help to blame people when there’s a problem, the best
thing to do is to fix the problem first and then to blame later but in
cases where the problem is recurring constantly, then the one who
fails constantly must be targeted and blamed.
The conflict in Gok State like other States in South Sudan is the
clear failure of the SPLM Governments both in Juba and in different
States. The government of South Sudan has failed to know that citizens
accepted her rule to protect them.
When the SPLM government fails through inaction then that is a neglect
of duty. It is sad to see the government officials just sitting there
watching at the citizens butchering each other like nothing while
It means that there is a problem with the SPLM.
Moreover, it means that we do not have the government at all as the
government in power is the government which clearly know hows to steal
resources from the citizens but not how to protect them.
How can the government allow citizens in Gok State and other States to
commit such despicable crime against each other while just sitting
there doing nothing.
The conclusion one can reach is that the government of South Sudan is
worse than the imperialist government that was controlling Africa from
1914 to 1990s. The imperialists or colonialists were even better since
they could protect citizens and stop them from killing each other.
We liberated ourselves just to come and put ourselves in a cage of bad
governance where government is doing its own things and citizens are
doing their own things.
Government of South Sudan is only effective when it comes to taking of
resources from citizens.
What is the use of those gunships and jet fighters that were used in
fighting against Riek Machar?
What if the government ordered the citizens to surrender all their
guns and if they refuse then they should be declared as terrorists and
dealt with in accordance with the international and national laws
governing terrorism by even employing these gunships and jet fighters?
Where they bought purposely to protect the president against Riek
Machar but not to protect citizens and nation? Why are we sold alive
What is happening in Gok state is the tragedy caused by the inaction
of the SPLM Governments both in the State and Juba.
We must blame the President of South Sudan, General Salva Kiir Mayar
for interfering with the way the Government of Gok State was running
The people of Gok State should know that their problems go back to the
president facilitated by the failure of the government of Gok State.
If the Governor was allowed by the President to continue imposing
death penalty on those who kill others and just advise him on how to
apply it properly, the current deaths of which within two months over
fifty (50) people were killed would have not happened.
It is sad and incomprehensible to the Government of South Sudan
running the country like a mercenary Government or proxy Government
borrowed to advance the imperialists agenda in South Sudan with the
sole aim of controlling natural resources.
I have never seen the Government that failed to try to control the
citizens because it does not know what to do. The wisest thing the
government should do under such a situation is to resign and allow
other citizens who are capable to try.
However, the SPLM Government both in the States and Juba try to
monopolize the system but without any control. This monopoly without
control is worse than sin.
The SPLM Government has closed its ears to all the possible
suggestions while lying supinely on phantom hope that God will bring a
solution which is not forthcoming.
God will never bring any solution unless we human beings take an
action while praying to God. That is when God can help us because God
helps those who help themselves.
If God has created us, given us brain and power to change things to
our benefits and then we sit there just to watch at bad things
happening yet we are capable of controlling them then there is a
problem. We are even putting God to temptation.
In summary, unless the SPLM government learns how to think and how to
deal with crime then South Sudan will be destroyed. I really feel sad
for my beautiful people that the government of South Sudan allows to
kill themselves in Gok State and other States.
The Government must take a tough approach on Gok State or allow other
citizens chosen by citizens of Gok State to run the State and protect
