December 28, 2015 (SSNA) — The Government of South Sudan is falling to the verge of anarchy. The aftermath of Juba Nuer killing, creation and amendment of 28 (twenty-eight) states are the signs leading South Sudan to the verge of anarchy.
Conversely, the government of South Sudan becomes a tribal government which rejects all conventional forms of government on the basis that it imposes restraints on individuals without their express consent having given. One tribe’s army, that is, Dinka has been recruited, armed and appears to be the most effective violence army ever invented on earth.
More importantly, Salva Kiir Mayardit urged the abolition of constitution, law and order of the country, using veto without objection from parliament and ordinary South Sudanese. South Sudan has no central government at all, thus, in truth, it is at the verge of anarchy and will soon remain a country without rule, structure and tribes will revert to a local form of conflicts.
In essence, everyone knows that South Sudan is falling to the verge of anarchy government system. This is due to the reason that judicial system is destroyed and legal structure is no longer a country’s legal structure, however, owned by one tribe, that is, Dinka. Country’s policies are designed and implemented by Dinka without objection. Any objection of wrong policy may lead to killing and torture. Dinka tribe controlled law and order of the country and that comes to a creation of 28 states.
Creation of 28 states is not a call from all South Sudanese, however, a call from Jieng Council of Elders (JCE). They are creating and amending 28 states under the guise of country’s development in which that is not true. Instead, they are creating, amending them to establish Dinka’s nation, and with an intention to have control over other tribes under their empire. An empire which is shockingly has the high rate of homicides of children, women and men every day without trace or an investigation of some sorts. To me, Dinka’s empire is destructive and should not be followed as it has no sense of unity and harmony with other tribes in the country. Also, it is an empire which works with the aim of causing harm to other tribes and support terrible decisions which will never bring the change South Sudanese wanted to see.
Surprisingly, although some people are criticising the government and Dinka’s empire as criminal syndicates which cannot or will never lead to any progress of the country, other think that they are the best institutions have had ever invented. Among those supporting Dinka’s empire to grow are Nuer generals, politicians and elders. Nuer generals, politician and elders are now die-hearted supporters of Dinka’s empire. They forgot that their loved ones were killed and subjected to a wide ranges or forms of torture, including the gouging of eyes, rapes, severe beating plus many more.
Instead of making a strong unity in order to face the enemy, they are busy employing conflicts between themselves. They become too weak and dysfunctional to perform basic tasks, like securing the property of their community. Now it happens that Dinka’s empire controlled the constitution, law and order of the country. It is growing, getting bigger and the one making decisions and pass them off as some sort of reforms. In those decisions, they make, including killing or intentional torts to anyone who is not from Dinka’s tribe. Where Nuer generals, politicians and elders will fit in a system like this, a system that does not need anybody else from Nuer or other tribes?
It is not too little too late for Nuer come together. In doing that, dividend syndrome has to come to an end and have to remember that there will always be problems if they are not walking, talking and thinking together for the better of Nuer community. Challenges are everywhere and even Dinka have challenges but are sticking together in unity. Why not us? My fellow Nuer, let us remember this, it is not the lack of challenges that will make us successful; what will make us successful is continuing to take the steps that get us a few inches higher, despite how challenging it is.
