SUDAN'S PRESIDENT AL-BASHIR SAYS HIS COUNTRY WILL INTERVENE TO STOP WAR AND FAMINE IN NEIGHBORING SOUTH SUDAN

Khartoum, 1 May 2017: Sudan’s President Omar Al- Bashir on Sunday said that his country would intervene “to stop war and famine in the State of South Sudan”. 

Sudan's President made the remarks during the closing session of the fourth General Conference of the ruling National Congress Party in Khartoum on Sunday. 

“Some parties have called on me to reunite South Sudan with Sudan, after being hit with war, famine, conflicts and indiscriminate killing. We are dealing ethically with the people of South Sudan, because we were one people, we received them when they came in thousands fleeing war and were keen on the security and stability of their country”, Al- Bashir said. 

The president called for the extension of a helping hand to Sudan and South Sudan." We will not accept the suffering of civilians in South Sudan because before we separated from them in 2011, we were one people" said a long serving Sudanese leader. 

The statement by Sudanese leader however angered Juba and in response, President Kiir's spokespoke Ateny Wek Ateny, said the statement will be perceive by the people of South Sudan as provocation of war, urging Sudan's leader should work with government of South Sudan to find a lasting solution." This statement will be perceived by 98,9 percent of South Sudanese who voted for the independence of this country as provocation of war," " we will not accept Sudan's intervention in the internal affairs of this country" he added.

    South Sudan is sick and all the its citizens either from IO or IG have to seek medicine to cure it. Noone wants anyone to die on Juba-Nimule Highway either from IO or IG because all have the right to life after independence from the North. For peace to prevail the government has to accept responsibilities of using injustice ideology and accept all the demand for transforming the country to justice so that a government for tribes is established. This will only happen if the government change its attitude of the South Sudan belong to a tribe or tribes and the struggle for reserving the top power position of President to any majority tribe. This must be removed from either the constitution or mind of individual tribes. South Sudan need a charismatic leaders to be in leadership. The war cannot be ended with arm struggle or politicking the world to support the government to kill all the oppositions because God is with the opposition IO not the government. South Sudan government need to listen to UN and IGD and international community to bring peace. The 15 August 2015 peace agreement is the road map for peace. If it is revived we don't even need national dialogue either including opposition government monologue because issues that divide the country were discussed and resolved there. There is tribalism but still today there are Dinkas in opposition either because they are there looking for powers or fighting injustice. As the government removed Dinkas from positions they think of there privilege they turn rebels. The current policy of isolating Rick Machar in South Africa is Isolating Nelson Mandela in Robbin Island. He was being asked every year to denounce violence but he never until justice proved him right and war released after 27 years. Mandela was not greedy and did not pay back his suffering in the hand of the British. Why not Rick after escaping three assassination attempts since from the bush. His detention is not the a solution because since he was detained in SA war has been going on and has intensified worse than he was unisolated. The wars has become worse than before agreement because Equatoria region has moved from peace making to struggling for power in South Sudan. The opposition feel after the fall of Paul Malong peace was around the corner but on the contrary his successor is watching intensive war allover the country. I hope if the proposed meeting of 12/06/2017 is properly conducted properly with or without the president of South Sudan the government the country may experience peace. The appointment of Taban Deng as VP is not the choice of the opposition because he is only after enriching himself at the expense of the grassroot papulation.

    It should not be a surprise that Bashir is talking like that. The Dinka people have given him ammunitions to fire at us. Dinka people have failed to build a state nation of South Sudan by instituting tribalism in state matters that shattered the cohesion of South Sudan people that Clement Mboro, Ezbon Mondiri, Joseph Oduho , Aggrey Jayden, Gordon Muortat and many others tirelessly worked hard to effect. Let us where they are taking us through resistance.

    Some South Sudan politicians came out with good proposal to put South Sudan under UN protectorate for some years to stop the war and give opportunity for South Sudan to get education that they were lacking during the 22 and 17 years first war while fighting for liberation but the JCE refuse this alternative. South Sudan is at the even of independence from the North.It has not completed border demarcation with North Sudan. Before completing South broke into war of power struggle (Nuer and Dinka) and before granting independence the Arabs predicted war and they made it clear to international community South cannot rule itself because they are aware the two tribes who think a country is rule by population size not quality will destroy the independence. All this time the world and the Arabs and the Arab world have been observing the struggle for power in South Sudan. Finally, a solution was reached in August 2015 and the rebel leader returned to Juba to implement peace agreement signed. On the contrary the agreement was violated and the opposition leader escaped mysterious death narrowly. Instead of UN, AU and the international community condemning the atrocity and reviving the agreement they decided to isolate the leader of the opposition that has caused inflammation in the country. There can be no peace without implementation of August 2015 strategic agreement. The opposition leader should be release like Nelson Mandela. Equatoria region which is the heart of the government that has been was forced to join the war should be recognise. This involvement of Equator and Bahr El Ghazal will make it hard for the government to survive.It is known Russia will protect the government from UN and supply dangerous arms to destroy Juba, Nimule, Yei, Malakal, Torit, Kapoeta and Wau like Damascus, Syria as the Bible said, God will punish Sudan and Syria. This is the time. The announcement by President of Sudan Bashir can only be avoided by giving South Sudan to UN protectorate because if war broke out between the North and the South there are no people to defend like former wars of ANYANYA ONE AND SPLA as the country is disintegrated. The Dinka who claim the ownership of the South cannot defend forceful unity and the world may prefer unity to discontinue death through killing either by starvation or the army. It does not matter who kills. Dinka and Non-dinkas are one people dying because of power. I ask the world to back UN protectorate for a decade or more than forceful unity that may bring peace but not happiness because of the mistrust between the North and the South. I ak the JCE who are the cause of all this disunity in the South to dissolve itself or form SOUTH SUDAN COUNCIL OF ELDERS as it is above the parliament and South Sudan constitution. The truth is we have no army to fight the North because all the brave commanders either from the opposition or government have died and those who are alive are demoralised and soldiers hungry.
