May 17, 2019 (SSNA) — I want to take this opportunity to thank all my teammates in Kenya Front and in other fronts across the world for mobilizing the young people to come out in their large numbers and stand up for what they believe in. You were not given money or food or drinks or transport. It was a sacrifice — kind that got us a country.
What next after 16th May?
Let me start by reminding you that it took 50+ years to achieve independence of South Sudan. In fact, it took the genius of Dr. John Garang 21 years of war and 6 more years of dialogue and implementation of CPA. It is foolhardy to expect #RedCardMovement to overthrow the dictatorship of Salva Kiir in a single day. The dictator is well equipped with all weapons and lots of money at its disposal to spread around. Despite the many advantages the enemy has over us our offensives have caused the regime massive damage and losses.
Comrades allow me to list to you the losses the enemy has incurred.
- For the first time, our men in uniforms have received a four-month advance pay. This is an attempt to bribe them to dissuade the protests.
- It has been said and with evidence, that the dictator went to his personal bank accounts and withdrew millions of dollars to give his ministers and loyalists so that they do not switch sides.
- The regime splashed out millions of dollars to its embassies to try stopping the protests. Honestly, it has made victories but also lost many fronts.
- Work has been paralyzed in many enemies’ embassies. Dozens will remain close. Their quarters are crumbling.
Good news. Aren’t we proud? Other protests like these and I assure you the regime will go bankrupt. And of course, that’s our mission — to destabilize and dismantle the dictatorship. Kede Waga Bes! Dictators don’t just disappear. Many have been known to put up countless resistance against the people but only few have been known to have succeeded. We must intensify the offensives on tyranny and corruption and abuse of human rights.
Allow me to remind you that the struggle has just begun. The operation to liberate motherland could not have come at any better time than this. The battle could not have gotten any better fighters than the brave and courageous young people of South Sudan. We resisted the regime offensive and threats. Now we must deploy our best weapons while at the same time devising progressive tactics that will derail the enemy. The enemy must be at all times kept distracted and sabotaged from within and outside. DON’T BE SILENT DON’T BE VIOLENT!
A few pessimists have already dismissed us as insignificant and jokers. I remind you not to respond using the same medium. The young soldiers have things and enemy to take care of; the critics are not our enemies — some of them are cowards and idle buddies who are better in analyzing and giving ‘how it could have been done better’ after it’s all done. Our relentless actions will prove them wrong.
The path we have chosen will determine the future of our country. It will determine whether South Sudan will remain with the dogs or go to its rightful owners — Shaap!
Our every effort must be exerted in to achieve the later. The peaceful protests we have started are a national call of duty.
The enemy has already put to use the rented service of unpatriotic youth to spy and intimidate us. In the next coming days, we expect loads of propaganda coming from the enemy. Our enemy will also seek to divide us by instilling fear and distrust among ourselves. If they tell you that ‘filan amulu kide’ or ‘that guy is not with you’ never accept. It’s the old tactic of divide and rule. Be vigilant. We are all young and determined. Kede Waga Bes.
Once again, our country is in most critical moments, the time is ripe for the struggle and there’s no more turning back. We must avoid counting our defeats. Every time we fell remember we must hit the ground running. The streets are ours and we must lay siege throughout. Constant assault and shelling on the enemy must not cease. The arrogance of the regime must be tamed!
DON’T BE SILENT, DON’T BE VIOLENT.
Your comrade in struggle,
Cde. Makoi Majak, Cdr Red Card Movement, Kenya Front
