Cairo – A Northern Sudanese politician pridicted during the Southern Sudan Referundum that “if the South break away from the north, South Sudan will never be peacefull due to their ethnic hatred toward each other”. Well, the South Sudanese proven their former northern brothers right this week after a peace deal falters.
Last week, which saw targeted killings of armed and political members of the SPLM-in-Opposition – a party to the Peace Deal signed in August – clashes started after days of speculations that the two parties will return to war. Throughout Thursday last week to Monday, this week, Juba witnesses heavy fighting, which in fact suggested that the Transitional Government which was established last month between Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army I’m Oppoosition ( SPLM/A – IO) and the other SPLM faction of President Silva Kiir, between forces loyal to each party.
With the suggestion that the Transitional Government failed, it means the deep of a challenge facing South Sudanese in ruling themselves as a nation. The powerful uses his/her power to prosecute the weak and the richer used his/her riches to kill the poor. Ethnic hatred has driven the country into an unknown future and to an extend that the perpetrators and the South Sudanese as while forgotten that they have a nation.
South Sudanese have totally failed to rule themselves, I do not think that there is another appropriate time than now for the international community to takeover and rule the country for the period of the Transitional Government I’m order to set-forth a road map for South Sudan to manage their country by themselves. Many may dispute me due to what I describe as a ‘false feeling’ of nationalism, but as a matter of fact, it is more better for the International Community to rule this country and lead the South Sudanese people to safety than having the South Sudanese dictator in power kill them and torture the poor and the ordinary citizens. Few who are liars may disagree with me, but the fact that we need to save the remaining lives remain the option instead of unlimmited wars.
This war has no winners or losers, up to the end, no single party to the conflict will be defeated, and we have to take in to consideration our future concerns. Those who believe that victory belongs to them, among the parties to the conflict are wrong, we all are losers. The lives we losts daily constitute a great challenge to our nation in regard to our peaceful co-existence.
