Former colonial must find way to bring peace to two Sudan
By Mama Jany Gorey
My name Mama Jany Gorey a former MP during 1977; I have understand leadership in South Sudan failing to care their citizen status but care only about their beneficiary, I was one time a member of Parliament in Juba representing the Greater Upper Nile region with current three names Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile.
Since the struggle until 2005 peace deal between Khartoum and former rebel Sudan People Liberation I holds several posts include the head of women affairs in 1991 in Unity State, advisor for Bentiu Nuer federation association (BNFA) in 2003 whose aims to focus on Nuer culture.
Working as state Member of Parliament from 1992 up to 2005 experiences I had notice to achieve smooth politics within the society seven points involve, a leader should fully believe in God , secondly spirit of patriotism for nationism, thirdly preparation for clean and clear strategies so that for the next generation growth, fourthly loving the citizen that voted you, fifthly if selected by majority bring those who opposed you to power to board, sixth be close to people and talks with them share their pains and lastly when some amendments are made for change and stand alongside with high turnout. since at the beginning of struggle, every Southerners thought of herself or he but leaving aside the agenda aims of struggle.
General Joseph Lagu attempting seat of Abel Aler in 1977 that gave chance to enemy to destabilize the South Sudanese affairs struggle unity. One time we went to Lagu quarter we were about 10 women from parliament of South Sudan in Juba to see him at the hidden side at Numile where they found him drinking and from there the 9 women decline to meet him and i personal manage to meet general Lagu and advise him about wrong decision he took by collaborating with Khartoum regime.
“In the years of 50, 60 and 70 Sudanese status was neglecting by Arabs tribe in which they abandon to have nationality from Sudan, most of them went to Egypt to get out their nationality because they keep saying Sudan was for black in whom they cannot take nationality from it”.
Talking of present days Arabs tribe now test the beauty of Sud black land with it natural resources and richness of oil production. I always question myself how come those who denied being part of Sudanese claims that Sudan is a right place and before term it slavery land.
Sudan had over 500 tribes and language, why to call it an Arab country of which it populations are majority black African people?
I seriously condemn Omer Bashir declaring Jahdin against South Sudanese for invading un-demarcated land to the north. South Sudan had Muslims like in the north but why NCP took Allah as their belonging.
“We are still behind liberation of Sudan, we need a God fearing nation, and we don’t need propaganda against God image, people must be rule without religious interference”.
I also calls on the leadership in the South Sudan to mean what they say to fight corruption rather than speaking and failing to take action against those steal a millions of dollar during the six year of implementation of the Comprehensive Peace agreement.
“Government must abandon saying this person we had been in bush fighting for the liberation of Sudanese people”.
It is right you fought for South Sudanese freedom but that does not mean you confiscate the country resources in putting them into pockets while leaving those you fought for self-determination left out in poverty.
“Salva Kiir must take action against the current and former government officials who stole 4 billion dollar by bringing them to book, no one is above the law include the president , if he is among those that steal South Sudanese money he should also be prosecuted accordingly”.
I urged on people of South Sudanese to maintain unity among and encourage them seriously not to leave Panthou and Abyei to the north as historically background they are part of the South Sudan during neocolonialism in Sudan.
My blames goes to the former colonizers British people of keeping quiet failing to rectify boundaries status as per the 1956.
“Let the British tell us who to found in Abyei soil before 1956, was it for Dinka Ngok or Miseriya, they must not keep quietly while the two brother kill themselves innocently”.
I urge on the people of north Sudanese, if one feels to be part of South Sudanese no one denied them, but they should respect the sovereignty of South Sudan.
Lastly I gave congratulation to the Darfurian, Funj and Nuba people who slept for long time while leaving their brother Southerners for bush until South Sudan achieve independent and now they begin waking up.
