How Salva Kiir’s ‘private army’ prompted the current conflict
The accounts of events in South Sudan is very disturbing, disappointing and unacceptable in the world we live in. Blood letting must be avoided at all cost. It is very unfortunate that the only thing we know is solving issues with guns! It does not help matters in South Sudan that the president is hell bent on running the country in a dictatorial fashion. South Sudan people must resist this at all cost, as the freedom that they have struggled for over the years will be for naught; end up with a one man rule that will totally ruin the country. It is a blessing that Salva Kiir has demonstrated his real hue to all those who want genuine democratic institutions in the country to take root. It is now up to South Sudan people to stand up truely fight to prevent dictatorship to germinate and build a nation with strong democratic foundations and values. It is a tough slog but a necessary one. I pray for all in the region. Wklaa
Such as having freedom of speech, social political right, civil right and partaken in social economy to build a strong country through democratic and economically, etc. Madam Rebecca Nyandeng talk at the bottom of her heart anyone who may form a different opinion from her statement; could have a hidden agendas of telling truth. I personal never heard Rebecca Nyandeng speaking before, but her speeches have stolen my heart. Because she has shown sense of belonging as a mother of nation.
Rebecca Nyabdeng Garang De Mabior prove herself to the South Sudanese people and to entire global citizens that she could be a good leader who can unite people and better than a man who rule people base on lying. According to the proverb that say “where there is no truth; there is no peace” that’s true Salva Kirr the president of Republic of South Sudan and his cabinet member don’t tell the truth to the nation.
The question is how do South Sudan will stand as a Nation? If head of state don’t satisfy the very people to whom he lead. Interestingly, one man rule cannot build a good country.That is a big task and it may look like someone who may try to cross the ocean with a rowing boat or a canoe It’s perquisites for all people of South Sudan to engage in build a strong nation.

Some Kigali analysts blame the failure on the fact that most of the FDLR Hutu rebels who fled to Rwanda after the genocide are showing no willingness to leave Congo despite the on-going voluntary repatriation programme.
For years, the M23 has been fighting for the implementation of the peace agreement which it signed with the government on 29 March 2009, and through which the government committed itself to eradicating all negatively forces operating in Eastern DRC as a precondition to thousands of Rwanda refugees in Congo returning from exile.
M23, then known as the National Congress for the Peoples Defence (CNDP), also claimed that its servicemen should be given their present ranks after their integration into the Congolese military (FARDC).
Despite the fact that the M23 rebellion has announced since November 2013 that it has voluntarily put an end to the insurrection, mainly in areas under its control, the Congolese Armed Forces, supported by the UN Special Strike Force, is now attempting to have the Rwandan Hutu rebels repatriated by force.
Considering the Rwandan insurgents refusal to go back home, you can understand that some of their radical leaders fear they should face justice once repatriated, particularly for their role in the 1994 genocide, as some are still profiting from support from hidden forces on an international scale, a political expert from the University of Rwanda told PANA on the condition of anonymity.
Some months ago, after a vast FARDC-operation was launched to chase away the Rwandan rebels, some of the insurgents retreated, while others invaded villages near the Rwandan border.
Rwandan authorities believe that the international community has failed in its fight against armed groups in Eastern DR Congo.
In such a situation, the operations by the UN-backed Congolese military to fight rebels are doomed to failure, said Rwandas Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Louise Mushikiwabo.
But for the UN, the move to end the conflict in the Great Lakes sub-region must start with reinforcing the process for Disarmament, Demobilisation, Repatriation, Reintegration and Reinstallation (DDRRR), and relocating FDLR volunteers in Congo, Rwanda or other countries, far from the borders with their countries of origin.
While ruling out any kind of negotiations with the FDLR, a Hutu rebel movement, Rwandas government advocate easing the voluntary repatriation for all FDLR rebel fighters who are not steeped in genocide ideologies.
The FDLR has been operating in Eastern DRC for more than 19 years and is considered one major source of insecurity in the Great Lakes area.
A lot of its members allegedly participated in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

However, the FARDC officer did not report on the global situation on the field or give any details about Operation Sokola or clean, which had been launched since 16 January to disarm all the active armed groups in the territory of Beni.
Major General Lucien Baumba Ambamba affirmed that the army had taken over several positions of the ADF and was progressing toward the localities of Chuchubo, Makoyova 1, and Makoyova 2, after having taken over the stronghold of Mwalika last week, thereby blocking the rebels reinforcement.
