Can We Afford Another Al-Bashir, in the South?William Deng for Salem-News.com
Kiir Mayradit is a criminal, he takes advantage of his people and does not allow democracy to flourish, his lack of honor will bring war to our nation when we need peace.
(WASHINGTON D.C.) - At great risk to myself and those close to me that are still in Sudan, I have written this letter to bring awareness of what is happening inside the South Sudanese government.
I have already received threatening emails and several friends have been telephoned by those inside the government, in an effort to intimidate.
My belief is the Private Secretary of President Kir is calling and writing emails to pressure me into silence and those, that are strong in their resistance to the tyranny that is President Kiir.
In the South, Sudanese have nothing to eat; Salva Kiir doesn't care about those who are struggling with poverty after they lost their family members in Civil War. We are going to suffer under Kiir leadership. He has brought too much hate amongst Dinka themselves.
This time South Sudanese must force him out by any means necessary in order for South Sudan not to go through Genocide. I believe war will ensue as a result of both the recent fraudulent elections and after the referendum.
South Sudanese must now stand up in unity to change this blinded leader, the urgency is imminent, otherwise we are going to suffer forever.
He is giving our rights away to extremists and dictators. There is a lack of food to eat, no education for our children and neither school nor hospital they can go.
We Dinka Aweil, who have been marginalization under his leadership will not be silent, we will not be used any longer as a weapon to increase fear in other innocent minority tribes in the South.
For too long, the Dinka have been enslaved by poverty that Salva Kiir has promised to changed. Our children allowed to be taken and sold to the North, the truths must come out. Who is the real enemy of our South Sudanese people?
Salva Kiir is trying to divide us further so that conflicts can enflame and arise and we continue to suffer. Without services we will be dependent on his government, this must stop.
We Aweil Dinka are not going to accept slavery by anyone, we refused physical slavery and economic slavery we demand our government begin to recognize our citizens and form a democracy that will benefit all.
My Aweil Brothers and Sisters and I, we call upon the Shilluk Community, the entire Equatoian Communities, and the Nuer Community to reject the ideology of both the extreme Islamists and those that beleive "they were born to rule.” Salva Kiir Mayradit is a criminal, he takes advantage of his people and does not allow democracy to flourish, his lack of honor will bring war to our nation when we need peace. Peace will come with justice but not with Salva Kiir.
As President Franklin Roosevelt said "there is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
William Deng is the President of Southern Sudan Project southernsudanproject.org and works many hours exposing human rights abuses, and speaking about the extreme slavery that has haunted the Aweil Dinka for decades. He believes education, hospitals and justice is the priority for his people and works continuously to help provide such.
