Riek Machar Denies South Sudan coup

Good People,
People have a right to choose their leaders and in a show of a Referendum people make a choice to determines how they should be governed. Peoples' Government is where strategic planning for public service delivery are distributed inclusively and fairly to all people in an organized manner. It is here where opportunities are developed and found for progressive development programs and in extension, channels and create sustainable employment opportunities under public watch and scrutiny. Changing leadership is the right thing to do if Governance has failed to do what it is expected and commissioned to do; first and foremost Government of the Peoples' paramount primary objectives is to deliver serve to the people according to how the people want. It is clear that this is what Salva Kiir is trying to do why he cooked a conspiracy with his friends in the IGAD to lie that Riek Machar organized a coup. The UN, African Unions and Leaders of the world must also respect and observe public opinion and mandate without taking sides with corrupt Dictators and putting pressure and force to defeat how people want to be governed. Show cases of Salva Kiir misrule are all clear and are tabulated in details. It is clear that Salva Kiir has engaged in massive corruption, graft and impunity and saked his VP Riek Machar with all his elected Cabinet to impose a draconian corrupt rule on South African people, doing what the South Africans dont want. Friends of Africas Land Grabbers are being used to destroy Africa through corruption........It is time that Africans Must Wake Up and Stand Up For Their Rights............!!!!!
Therefore, any mission or external forces that conspire to do harm or obstruct People of Africas' Democratic principles and Progressiveness that are for Mutual Development aspects and instead engage to undermine, frustrate good democratization principles or terrorize, assassinate, exterminate, torture and intimidate Africans and scuttle Public Demand for South Sudan freedom with the rest of choose how they must be governed; must be resisted by all good people of the world and all Africans must unite to demonstrate Unity of Purpose that we oppose injustices of all manner that are impossed on African people, that Africa must be free from Corporate Special Business Interest oppressiveness.........but that Africans must protect and defend Legal Rights for Human Rights Dignity, Respect, Value, Virtue and honor and as well, demand Justice to be seen to have been done for the same...........It is because, Peace and Harmony for Common Good of All is our goal.........
Inclusive Democrative Governance is what John Garang struggled and stood for with his team and it is why they fought for in the bush for so many years. Garang was right, that enemies of Africa want Africa's land without African people in those land..........My question therefore, where do the enemy of Africans want Africans to go??? ..... In Concentration Camps???........No, that is not acceptable......But, is this not what According to African haters, pay masters of the corrupt African Leaders want??? Do Africans have a Right to live a respectful, honorable, valuable and dignified lifestyle? This is the reason why, Africans must not accept "Divide and Conquer" theory that has been cooked in a conspiracy by enemies of Africans to defeat and enslave Africans forever............Wake up people wake up..............Wake up and stand up for your Rights……I see Africans are being pushed to a point of no return..........
The Corporate Special Business Interest want African land without African people. They don’t want to hear about African Democratic Constitution, they don’t want African to be united or be organized to demand opportunities from their Governments to offer progressive development, they want stupid African to remain homeless slaves without rights, respect, dignity or value..........They compromise corrupt African leaders to intimidate and kill their people, so African Land is up for grabs……….Do you hear me loud and clear…...It is the same reason why it is suspected that Museveni killed Garang……it is the same reason why Al-Bashir from time immemorial frustrated and intimidated and extra-judiciary killed the South Sudan innocent people…… is why there are too many South Sudanese mass graves, why UN denied and refuse to acknowledge and it is the same reason why Museveni bombed Bor and are irregularly occupying the land……which is why IGAD leaders are bold to demand an ultimatum from Riek Machar without strategic plan for dialogue………
The World must yield that we have come too far to allow Self Greed of the Corporate Special Business Interest to destroy our Peace for mutual harmony that are for common good of all and engage in fueling Third World War through forcing Africans out of their land for purposes of illegal and unconstitutional unjustified corrupt Land Africans are made Slaves and are driven into Concentration Camps from conspiracy of the Scramble of Land Grabbing and hijacking of Africans Land in Africa.........There must be mutual agreement for Partnership of “Give and Take” so Peace and Harmony can prevail………so to endure happiness.

South Sudan's Rebels Say Committed to Dialogue, Warn 'March to Juba' If Salva Kiir Curtails Peace

29 December 2013
Bor — The defected SPLA forces loyal to former South Sudanese Vice president Dr. Riek Machar say they are committed to peaceful solution to the current political crisis in the country.
In a 'press statement' seen by the South Sudan News Agency, the rebel forces said they are in control of Greater Upper Nile states, namely Unity, Jonglei, and Upper Nile. However, they admitted that some areas are still controlled by Kiir's forces.
"Dr. Machar is committed to dialogue as he has already nominated his negotiation team with the precondition of releasing all the detainees first", the statement reads in part.
"In the event Salva continues to be obstinate curtailing efforts for dialogue as is the case, then our only option will be to march to Juba", warns the statement.
The statement comes just one day after leaders of Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) met in Kenya capital, Nairobi, to try to find a peaceful solution to the ongoing political crisis.
"As of today Saturday, December 28th, 2013, the SPLM/A forces under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny are in control of the Greater Upper Nile States of Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei. There are still some pockets of counter attacks in Northern Upper Nile Counties, but all the oil fields in both Unity and Upper Nile states are under our control", said the statement.
The rebel forces also said that Juba has been bombing their positions in Upper Nile, Jonglei, and Unity.
"Salva forces continue use aircraft to bomb areas of Jonglei yesterday afternoon. He also continues attacks on Malakal town and border areas of Bentiu with Warrap as corroborated by Salva Army Spokesman yesterday", adds the statement.
In the press release, the defected forces denied that they were defeated by the government forces; instead they said that they withdrew from Jonglei State capital, Bor, on December 24, due to strategic reasons.
"Our forces briefly withdrew from Bor Town, the Jonglei State Capital on December 24, 2013 for tactical reasons, and it is true that there is presence of Salva Kiir forces in the town center", asserted the statement.
The United Nations (UN) estimated that 1000 people have died in the conflict and the number could be higher.
Fighting erupted in Juba on December 15 after deep political differences between senior members of the ruling Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) party.

South Sudan: No Sign of an End to Fighting in South Sudan As 'Thousands March On Bor'

A senior official in the South Sudanese government has claimed that thousands of members of a tribal militia are marching on the city of Bor. This followed the rebel leader's rejection of a government ceasefire offer.
South Sudan's information minister, Michael Makuei Lueth told reporters in the capital, Juba on Saturday that as many as 25,000 youths were marching on the city of Bor. He said the figure was based upon intelligence the government had received from within the tribal militia itself.
"He has decided to mobilize the youth in the name of his tribe," Lueth said, referring to former Vice President Riek Machar, a member of the Nuer ethnic group. Machar, who was sacked as vice president last summer, is accused by President Salva Kiir, of the Dinka ethnic group, of sparking the fighting by attempting to topple him in a coup earlier this month. Machar has denied this.
Most of the residents of Bor are Dinka and Lueth said the South Sudan army, which recaptured the town this past week after it had briefly been held by the rebels, would do all it could to protect the civilian population. At the same time though, it said it remained to be seen what the outcome of the apparent impending battle would be.
"It's hard to predict what will happen," he said. "This is war."
The youths said to be marching on Bor are known as the White Army due to the white ash its fighters smear on their skin in order to protect themselves from insects.
Despite the reported rebel march toward Bor, Army spokesman Colonel Philip Aguer told the AFP news agency that the situation there remained calm in Bor on Saturday. Speaking to the Associated Press, though, Aguer said the army had repelled attacks by Machar's forces. Aguer said the army "is fighting back, but it is the other side that is attacking us."
Ceasefire offer rejected
In view of this and the anticipated battle for Bor there seems to be virtually no prospect for a quick resolution of the conflict, which many fear could be sliding into a full-blown civil war.
Friday's offer by President Kiir to end hostilities with the rebels , which came after a regional crisis meeting in Nairobi, was rejected by Machar, who was not represented at the talks. Machar said that he was open to entering negotiations towards a ceasefire, but that this could only be reached if such talks involved representatives of both parties to the conflict.
Since the fighting broke out on December 15, more than 1,000 people are believed to have been killed and 120,000 others force to flee.

The U.N. said it hoped within the next 48 hours to begin receiving critical reinforcements of military hardware and personnel for its overstretched peacekeeping mission.
China, which has significant oil interests in South Sudan, said it would send its special envoy for Africa to help bring about talks between Kiir and Machar.
"China is highly concerned about the evolving situation in South Sudan," Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.
Western powers and east African states, keen to prevent more chaos in a fragile region, have not been able to get Kiir to meet Machar, whose whereabouts are unknown. He told Reuters on Monday he was "in the bush".
The U.N. estimates 92,500 people have been displaced during the 12 days of fighting that has sparked the biggest crisis in the country since it gained independence from Sudan in 2011.
Ethiopian Foreign Minister Adhanom said regional leaders would meet in Nairobi on Friday to follow up on issues raised during the three-hour talks with Kiir and his cabinet in Juba.
Kenyan President Kenyatta said the conflict was not ethnic-based and the media should stop creating "negative impressions". He also urged Machar and Kiir to meet for talks.

Congo-Kinshasa: UN Peacekeepers Respond to Ugandan Rebel Attack in Eastern DR Congo

26 December 2013
Reformed fighters
United Nations peacekeepers in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) yesterday helped the national armed forces retake control over a town following an attack by a Ugandan rebel group that left dozens dead and displaced many more.
In the early hours of Wednesday, the Allied Democratic Forces-National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (ADF-Nalu) attacked positions of the DRC national armed forces (FARDC) in the town of Kamango.
The rebels captured the location after brief clashes, resulting in the killing of innocent people and massive displacement of civilian populations towards the Ugandan border, according to the UN peacekeeping mission in DRC (MONUSCO).
"MONUSCO strongly condemns these attacks and reassures that it will be using all its aerial and ground assets available to protect the civilians and will reinforce its presence in the area," it stated.
In accordance with its mandate to protect civilians, MONUSCO launched two attack helicopter sorties to respond to repeated attacks from the ADF-Nalu. In coordinated operations to support FARDC troops on the ground, MONUSCO helicopters opened fire on ADF-held positions to help Government troops retake Kamango.
The Mission noted that the FARDC has successfully taken over positions in Kamango and is currently in control of the situation.
"The Mission is determined to fulfil its mandate of tracking down and neutralizing all armed groups elements that spread fear and desolation among innocent civilians."
In March, the Security Council authorized the deployment of an intervention brigade within MONUSCO to carry out targeted offensive operations, with or without the Congolese national army, against armed groups that threaten peace in eastern DRC.

South Sudan: Breaking News - South Sudan President Sacks VP, Dissolves Govt

23 July 2013
Juba — President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan, in a surprising move, sacked Vice-president Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon on Tuesday, moments after dissolving the entire cabinet in a presidential decree that was read on national TV.
Mr. Kiir removed all ministers, their deputies and he has directed undersecretaries to take charge in the meantime.
In the same decree, the president has also susspended and ordered investigation of the ruling party's Secretary-General Mr. Pagan Amum Okiech.
He has tapped Speaker James Wani Igga as head of the committee tasked with overseeing that investigation.
It is not clear what the thinking was behind the decision to dissolve the national government. But South Sudan has been rocked by specters of violence and corruption for years now.
The young country just marked its 2nd anniversary of the independence on July 9, 2013.
Plus, the country is gearing up for the 2015 presidential election, which in recent months has seen the former vice-president ratcheting up his criticism of the president.
It is not clear when the president will fill the currently vacant seats: of vice president and all the national ministeries.
The President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, Must Resign
By Gabrial Pager Ajang
December 8, 2012 (SSNA) -- The viability of any state rests on its domestic and foreign policies. However, the amounting internal and international pressures on the South Sudan’s leadership are disproportionally increasing. The trend and direction this country has been taking is simply disturbing. The United States and its ally have threatened South Sudan with series of economic sanctions. These sanctions that were almost leveled against South Sudan government were intentional, and juba never understood that. So how did Juba loss to sustain its international and domestics supports that it had during the interim periods? Bear with me; I will focus this country that becomes a rogue nation in less than two years from independence. It simply minds boggling to see how the Sudan People Liberation Movement abandoned its founding principles. The Great generation that rose up against all odds and adversity to fight the oppressive and dictatorial regime of Khartoum prevail. These were men and women of this great generation from105, 104, Tiger and Timsah, Kazuk, and Jamus, Koryom and muor muor etc many of them did make it back to their homes. They died and were fighting for the new Sudan vision, a mission and strategy popularly known as new Sudan democratic transformation. This simple idea changed Sudan forever, and indeed, it did for the better.
Concurrently, the civil war between the South and the North claimed an estimate of 2.5 million lives in the 21 years of war. So, did our president forgot the great generation that laid their lives so that the rest of us can live in free and prosperous society, where human rights, freedom of press and freedom of expression can prevail. As a young red army, it had never occurred to me that these principles and ideals of Justice, Quality, and Freedom that our brothers and sisters died and fought for, have been relinquished. The President of Sudan Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit has lost it bearing and way. This illustrated by the state of horror and lawlessness in South Sudan put the whole country into socio-political stalemate which unleashed severe economic meltdown, meanwhile the President himself and ministers benefited the most, from south rich region of national resources. Today, in Lake, Jonglei, Unity and Upper Nile, the South Sudanese residents mercilessly flushed out of their homes and killed. Tribes and sub tribes fight each other almost on daily bases in all the corner of South Sudan. These ordeals and political disorders are astounding. These defy and disgrace the endearing legacy of the SPLM as a formidable political party that gives South Sudan a true self. Kiir has failed to restore law and order in the state he leads. The inter-tribal conflict is of a concern. The president failed to address the root causes of conflict, and to create conditions that could promote peace and community security in conflict-prone state. These conditions include supporting the establishment of community based conflict mitigation mechanisms, inclusive of local leaders, women and youth, who could build democratic processes and finally addressing conflict without violence. He failed to establish programs that would create a viable political framework that seeks to end tribal conflict, pave ways for agricultural development, push for good governances and failed to bring a lasting peace to South Sudan. Besides, the government of South Sudan failure to establish peace and security to promote good governance and accelerates agricultural development. He has completely failed to promote democratic reforms, rules of law, and frames better ways of handling issues concerning national security. It is essential to develop inclusive consensus-building initiatives related to peace agreements, and national issues.
On the foreign policy fronts, Kiir has reached a political deadlock with Khartoum over the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. The two countries could potentially square off in a full scale war any time. However, the Juba negotiating team has no basic political science experiences. They lack will and political leverage to corner Khartoum on issues that are vital to South Sudan’s interests, and rally international community to assist in areas of national significant.
Kiir colossal flawed is illustrated in following portion of protocols of the CPA:
1) He failed to push withdrawal of the Sudan government troops from Abyei and implementation of its protocol.
2) He failed to push for demilitarization of the disputed regions (towns).
3) Demarcations of Borders,
4) He allowed Implementation of the popular consultation in Nuba Mountain and Blue Nile to be held hostage by Khartoum.
5) He failed to engage Khartoum to cease he aerial bombardments in South Sudan
6) He permitted the violations of the South Sudan’s’ sovereignty and territorial integrity, and ceded 14 miles the South Sudan’s Land to Khartoum.
It is worth noting that the implementation of the popular consultation in Blue Nile and Southern Kordufan could serve South Sudan as a political tool in the process of border demarcation, oil agreement and Abyei, but the president does not see it that way, or he only comprehend blind ill policies, what a retard.
So who is Salva Kiir, the man who becomes South Sudan president after the tragic death of Dr. John Garang in the helicopter crash? And what motivate him? Kiir was in charge of the Sudan People Libration Movement and Sudan People Liberation Army’s intelligence. He never led army to frontline successfully. However, to his credit, he captured Kurmuk for few hours it was later taken by the enemy. Kiir was a disaster during the liberation struggles. The soldiers he led suffered and died at his watch. If this story is not true, fellow soldiers in the liberation struggles will be my witness. The same management skills he had during the liberation struggles are the policies he practiced as a President of South Sudan. He is a man with no vision, program and policy. Kiir is nothing but a nepotist suffering from unknown disease. The man is coward and had no testicles. He is an unworthy president and a dictator. If he is not unworthy he should have known that the Nilotic people never scare of a man who stands with two legs, had two testicles and anus in the middle.
Since South Sudan independence, he has permeated South Sudan public with series of empty promises. Kiir lectures citizens like students in classroom. The man is a nightmare. He does not know that the presidential speech comes with fiscal responsibility and budget appropriation. It is a national tragedy to simply see the national leader constantly loading citizens with series of empty speeches and programs. Instead of doing the right thing for nation, he granted ministers unusual access to public funds to misuse these funds for family’s transportations, buying mansions and houses overseas, and reckless buying of cars is rampant, when there are no well developed infrastructures and roads in the country. Besides, he failed to introduce strict rules that would govern behaviors of military SPLA elites and ministers. Kiir intentionally surrounded himself with cabinet ministers who were in Khartoum during war. These cabinet ministers he appointed were in Khartoum because of money and greedy. They are coward and moron who never had opportunity of experiencing bush life.
On the same note, South Sudan is the only nation where the legislative assembly serves at the loyalty of the president. The assembly has never scrutinized or question ministers or senior officials that engage in siphoning public funds. The South Sudan Legislative Assembly has failed in the following areas, because they fear, they would be killed:
1) Annexing appropriate laws that would create balance among judiciary, legislature, and cabinet,
2) Holding corrupt ministers accountable,
3) Making laws and statutes that would prevent or control sex trades from the neighboring countries because the ministers and senior public officials in the government import HIV-AIDS from Kenya and Uganda. It is sad to see South Sudan successful in sex trades.
As a responsible citizen who cares about the future of our children, what happened to the South Sudan budget of 2005/2006, 2007/8, and 2009/10 fiscal years that would have used to build at least three hospitals, three schools in each states, and six high ways that would have connected the ten states? Apparently nobody in the government knows. The president Kiir admitted that close members in the cabinets and several ministers have laundered billions of dollars. But because he severely suffering from testiclelysis, and lack qualities of leadership, he grants culprits and criminals amnesty.
What did Kiir achieve since 2005? The answer is nothing, zero.
1) He failed to implement the Comprehensive Peace Agreement;
2) He lost international supports
3) He failed to hold corrupt public official accountable
4) He ceded South Sudan lands (14 miles) to Khartoum
5) He surrounded himself with greed individuals from Khartoum who came solely for purpose of looting public money,
6) He divided the SPLA generals into Dr. John Garang’s boys and Kiir boys. NB: Garang loved his boys because they led during the liberation struggles, they captured towns and won battles against the enemy, what did your current boys do to the citizens of South Sudan? Your boys have basically destroyed the government, looted funds and completely failed in serves delivery.
7) The ministers squandered public, the budget allocate to the ministries is used for their private purposes. Mr. President you are coward and disaster to our nation.
Fellows South Sudanese, we are in the dark days. Our state’s leader is cruel, brutal and savagery killer. He was appointed as a head of security and intelligent by the nation founding father, Dr. John Garang. During the liberation struggles, Kiir resort to murdering of a prominent person or political figure by a surprise attack, usually for payment or political reasons. Many people that we all know, disappeared on his watch. With many incidents that have occurred in the past six years and half, Kiir has proven himself to be assassin.His engagement inkilling of important people began to become more than a tool in power struggles aiming at dividing and uniting his own tribesmen who may not like his leadership styles. The man has open butcheries of killing people in Juba. He is waging war against education, freedom of speech and expression, and importantly he is waging war against the very principles the SPLM as a political Party was premised upon.
Below are the people that his security personnel assassinated:
1) Akuac Jok a lawyer from Makerere University
2) Mayol Kuch Duoi, a veteran and guardian of orphans,
3) Isaiah Abraham (Diing Chan Awuol) A pastor, writer, columnist and political analyst, and most importantly father of two children and two wives.
The following persons were threatened and beaten:
4) Deng Athuai, human rights advocate and political activist
5) Mading Ngor Akech Kuai, co, founder of the new Sudan vision, former radio talk host, Bhakieta stationed in Juba
6) Emmanuel Jal, Musician, peace activist, composer and song writer
7) Dengdit Ayok, News paper editor.
8) Mabior Garang de Mabior (son of the founding father) and many more
I condemn the assassination of Diing Chan Awuol in the strongest term possible. The hypocrisy and high ill illiteracy in part of the government Sudan has killed him. According to article published by Sudan Tribune indicated that on November 21st, 2012 the president Security went to his house to investigate him. They shown him a printed article by the security agents a few days before his assassination and the president says “I know” it is not the 'police and security.' So the president now walks around with security officers like he is not aware, but the ongoing investigation indicates that 70% is assassinations “says minister for information, Marial Benjamin. Dr. Riek Machar had also said in the funeral of the former ambassador to Kenya, Micheal Majok Ayom, that the investigators are being threaten with text messages, that whoever will reveal the assassins will face the same consequences. These evident are whistle blowers to the president are covered up and styles of killing. Our president is a man with no confidence in himself and the public.
Just like any other community in South Sudan, Dinka community had contributed to the Liberation Struggles immensely in term of blood and treasures. I am personally proud and honored for their remarkable history and the landmark accord we have reached with Khartoum. We have an endearing legacy, we not allow one man to distort our image. We have led during the liberation struggles, and during the interim period. It is time to give other tribes in South Sudan an opportunity to lead South Sudan. The power of the presidency must be peacefully transferred to the SPLM/A member who had no tribal blood on his hand. Kiir must be impeached by the South Sudan Assembly. The members should cast a vote of no confidence. Kiir must be removed, and the power must be to be given to Honorable, Chief of Staff, Lt.general James Hoth Mai, and I proudly nominated Governor of North Bhar El Ghazel, Pual Malong Awan as his vice President. President Kiir has not led; Hoth and Malong will lead this nation to a brighter future.
Kiir has plundered the nation into deep economic stagnation by misusing resources.The lack of economic opportunity, particularly among marginalized youth, is a potential driver of conflict in South Sudan but our president had never mentioned it. He miserable failed to sustain and inclusive agriculture sector and ceased to lead the growth that can enhance resiliency and reinforce stability, by increasing agricultural productivity and linking communities to markets, providing access to credit for agribusinesses and small-scale farmers, and building strategic partnerships to better enable Southern Sudanese to capture market opportunities and enhance stability in areas where lack of economic opportunity is part of the conflict dynamic. Kiir cannot and will not disarm himself out of the problem because a cattle rustling is not a source of the problem in South Sudan. The problem is economic, social, and political, and these issues need to be addressed at the state levels. The South Sudan government should allocate funds to all states not speeches or words. James Hoth and Malong Awan must be given a chance to practically deliver services to all citizens. The power must remain with the party that crafted the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, and the party that given the people of South Sudan freedom, justice and equality, the SPLM.
Hoth and Malong will support the withdrawal of the Sudanese government troops from Abyei and use the International arbitration that was done in as a political leverage to gain Abyei back. They will move away from mediocre policy of Kiir, and implement demilitarization of the disputed regions (towns) and demarcations of Borders. They will help in the implementation of the popular consultation in Nuba Mountain and Blue Nile, and oppose the 14 miles that ceded the land of South Sudan land to Khartoum. They will preserve sovereignty and territorial integrity of our nation. However, I amazed and disappointed by how our president simply dismisses the important of Northern Bhar el Ghazel, Unity State and Upper Nile to our nation during the liberation struggles, and their significant positions they holds now. Dr. John Garang knew it very well that without Northern Bahr el Ghazal, we would have not reached independent. Losing this state would mean that Mr. President, you have lost your credibility and your presidency. Besides, ceding 14 miles land of the South Sudan under the pretext of security arrangement. And indeed the security arrangement was a calculated political advantage used during the interim period to gain more land from the North but it is useless now. The chief negotiator and the team would have not considered this agreement…because it weak and yield now difference. What is the meaning of security arrangement when the people of North Bhar el Ghazel and, upper Nile and Unity States are being bombed on a daily bases? We need a leader that will revitalize foreign policy advocacy and change government of South Sudan from diplomatic stagnations. There was no single diplomat in Washington DC and New York; they only came back at the height of oil shutdown and conflict in Pathou.
In conclusion, the people of Northern Bhar El Ghazel whose blood cemented the foundation of Republic must not and should not be neglected. Their land must not be ceded to the North. The border between the South Sudan must remain as it was drown on January 1st 1956 .We need a leader that can secure our territories along the border of Unity States, Upper Nile, and Northern Bhar el Ghazel. The politics of totalitarian-authoritarian regime in the government of South Sudan has unleashed detrimental impact on all Sudanese people and it is sadly crippling the viable of democracy and economy of Sudan. The policies of this authoritarian regime are dangerous to people and to the prospect of true democracy, we need a leader that will rescue the citizens of South Sudan from this monster. Kiir must go. If he does not resign, he must be impeached by the South Sudan legislative assembly. However, the citizens must exert significant pressure on him in order to relinquish power. The United States, and it ally, United States must be informed about his atrocities he is committing. We will be in contact with the United Senate of foreign relations to bring more pressure to bear. Kiir must go or he will be held accountable for the crime he had committed.
