Darfur's poblem is intertwined with other Sudanese problems

Since the independent of Sudan from Britain in 1956 Sudanese people's struggle for equality, justice, and freedom wasn't just South's war for self determinations but it was the whole Sudan's problem. Sudanese people's first attempt to create a democratic country right after independent which failed right away. Leaded many people in the North which were mainly Muslim to think of creating an Islamic state in a country which there are hundreds of tribes,cultures, Christian and animist, customs; with their own languages and cultures. In a country like Sudan the only way for everyone to live in peace is to create a democratic country were where people are not ruled by one part of the country or one person and have self determination.

In a country like Sudan people need to learn that the power is on their hand but it's always taken off from their hand by fear or power of money that is handed by the government which is the main and problem causing in Sudan. The main problems in Sudan of course have been created by the Northern government that have been ruling the country for decade and never made changes but created more problems in our country Sudan. For example, arming militia, Arab tribes against African and using religion as their main propaganda.

Sudanese People liberation Movement/Army SPLM/A which fought along with people from Nuba mountains with their one vision of New Sudan that will give every Sudanese equal rights, freedom of speech, expression, religion and self-determination in every part of Sudan. New Sudan dream still live inside many Sudanese in Sudan and outside Sudan. For example, now in Nuba mountains where many people do not believe in the government of Sudan just like every where in Sudan. We all know that our vision didn't just came out of no where or just because we had to follow our leader and their vision, but it came from Nubian, Southerners, and Darfuris experiences in the North. For example, many Southerner, Nubian, and Darfuris are denied Jobs for being in certain tribe or Southerner being denied education for Not being Muslim or sometimes being asked to convert to Islam. We the people of Sudan need to stand together and forget the propaganda days of the Northern government and create changes instead of us fighting each others over someone's interest or dream.. Let's all defeat our greatest enemy first then we can talk about power and building communities and our great country Sudan. People of Sudan have always been used against each others for Northern government's interest, but now that we all know this game and have clear image of our enemy's ideas and tricks to use as for their interest. Our country Sudan is facing great economic, social, and political problems which is felt mostly in Southern Sudan, Darfur, and the Nuba mountains while the son of Shemali'ah are enjoying the luxury that have been created by their country Sudan's oil wealth.

Our people in Darfur, Nuba Mountains, and many other part of Sudan lack basic education while the son and daughter of Shemali'ah or those who their parents work in the government graduate from top universities in Ireland, Dubai, the U.S, and Cairo. Many people in many different part of Sudan live under a dollar day and lack clean water, food, and basic health services. While those people who have voices and hand on wealth of Sudan enjoy luxury life and spending their evening nights on water steam air conditioning in Khartoum. We all know that you do not have to be a communism to try to point out all these truth and on going problems in our great country Sudan. For those who are living in displace person's camp in Khartoum and other part in Sudan now. You guys should wake up once and ask yourself this question. If I was really son of Sudan and Sudanese then why I'm living this condition? Are these other Sudan living in Khartoum enjoying the good life better than me?

Moreover, we all know that our people who are living in other countries such as Egypt, Kenya, Chad, and Ethiopia as refugees have escaped the country for the same problems that is still facing many Sudanese in Sudan now. For us to change all these problems in our country Sudan we need to stop taking sites or accepting our enemies offer to back down our rights. We need to stand up for our rights otherwise the U.N or the world police the United States won't be an option or listen to our voices because we are basically nothing in their list. We as Sudanese are cousins, brothers, and have a lot of things in common but our enemy always try to create boundaries between us. It shouldn't matter if you were Christian, Muslim or what so however your religion and your main role now is to take action against the greatest threat to our people dignity. Let's all put away our thought,hate, bitterness away from each others and seek change in Sudan not more problems. Almost everybody in Sudan have common vision, but our thoughts keeps as part from each others and we create more problems that create delays in implementing our vision and dreams. If we do not say enough Basher and his government won't stop their action in Darfur that they have been doing in Nuba mountains, Southern Sudan and many other part of Sudan before.

Therefore, if we don't solve the main problems we won't be able to solve other simple problems, struggle, and moves forward. Sudan Liberation Movement in Darfur is now calling upon son and daughter of Darfur and other part of Sudan to come along them to fight our greatest enemy. In my opinion, the right move for all Sudanese in Sudan is to reject, protest, and withdraw from current regime. whether you're in the army or work with the government you're part is to turn against your enemy for your country and people. Sudanese knows and believe that if that bloody government is out or soon there will be a lot of things out of Sudan and move forward will come. Since the independent the Northern government always work for the best interest of people of North Sudan not the Nubian, the Fur, or the Southerners. This is why we are so important when they have war to fight so they could use as as tools. Think about that and this message should go to every Sudanese in Sudan and outside Sudan.

The uncertain future of Sudan

The future of Sudan is totally uncertain with all the political crisis and issues that are going on in Sudan today. Issues such as economics, politics, and implementation of the CPA and peace in Darfur region. The South Sudanese are demanding the full implementation of the CPA while the NCP party is having hard time whether to implement or fear their interest in the South off their control. Abye issue and boundary between South and North are the main reason that is drawing the country into a big political crisis these days and the last few days that caused fear of another war in Sudan. The government though promised to implement the part pending CPA and the SPLM party is due to return to National Government.

Abye issue and boundary between South and North are the main reason that is drawing the country into a big political crisis these days and the last few days that caused fear of another war in Sudan. The government though promised to implement the part pending CPA and the SPLM party is due to return to National Government. Delay to full implementation of CPA showed another classic game of NCP as usual and it won't be tolerated since people have been going through it fore long time. Another issue for the whole country of Sudan today is the Darfur crisis which is the main headlines of Sudan since 2003 when rebells took up arms. Therefore, with the government still bombing villages, removing people from camps, and carrying out military assault upon rebells. This is not only giving uncertain future for the whole but more crisis in the region and making the matter worse..

As we all know the ruling party is not always to be trusted. For example, during the peace talks in Libya the government announced cease fire while at the same time carried out military action on the rebells in Darfur. Such kind of media Propaganda carried out by the government to paint a rose picture of the crisis. Does not do anything but always cause the people not even to negotiate with such government that is still thinking of solving the problem militarily.While at the same time talking peace and it always been the governments game in Sudan.All these matters as for Sudan today and it's future is giving the people of Sudan mixed messages whether or not to try see a brighter future. Sudanese people just can't afford another civil war in the region. The CPA didn't just bring peace to Sudan but also brought hope for our people.Many of Sudanese have been outside Sudan for 21 years and finally got back for final settlement at home. The uncertain future of Sudan wouldn't just make our people lose hope in Sudan after 21 years of war. But this will also cause those who wanted to come back and develop the country from scratch stay back and fear another civil wars and crisis in Sudan.

Is there transparency in the GNU?

Will Southerners experience transparency between their two ruling parties? Without the truth we are all vulnerable to manipulation. Not only is truth important for freedom but without truth there is nothing worth fighting for, because truth in the end of the day will brings freedom as Jesus mentioned in His words "follow the truth and it will set you free."

The truth can literally be a matter of life and death amongst the Islamic community. Therefore, Southerners must know whom they are dealing with. Muslims are extremists who demand that their views be heard while trying to silence others through violence or the threat of litigation. 

 Reason for concern: Muslims say "O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him)."

 If you all take those words and examine them critically, you will find that they refer to Southerners in the case of Sudan who are Christians and animist fighting against the forced spread of Islam in Sudan. In Islam, many dream of a world under the Sharia because they believe it is the solution to the problems that plague humanity. To put it another way, in the case of Sudan, the SPLM/A is a plague of humanity according Arab Muslims. In that case with the National Islamic Front as the major partner in the GNU. It is going to be more than hard for the SPLM party to achieve its objective which they called "United Socialist Sudanese," an ideology which is in the mind of some Sudanese, especially those who strictly claims to be implementing the so called Dr Garang steps.

Therefore, Southerners and the SPLM/A must acknowledge Mr Bona Malwal's ideology which clearly stated that the right of self-determination is the basic demand around which the people of the south should rally (an idea which caused havoc amongst the Southerners and SPLM/A supporters during Dr Garang regime. But so far, it is the dream which almost all Southerners are yearning for. The NIF regime accepted the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), not because she wants to fully unite with the SPLM/A or Southerners, but just for her to regroup herself and launch a massive wipe out of the Southern Sudanese and non-Arabs on the face of Sudan. War is the Muslims' weapon to gain their needs as Mohammed the prophet mentioned in his words and I quote "call them first to embrace Islam, if they refuse, then war."

 In other words, the Arabs will fight Southerners until they renounce that none has right to be worshiped except Allah. Many uneducated Southern intellectuals are credulous toward Islamic leaders; making us vulnerable to the Islamist agenda. This ideology must be dealt with radically, especially by the growing generation in order to create a peaceful Sudan. A Sudan where there is freedom of movement, freedom of warship, and Sudan where tranquillity prevail.

NCP-SPLM Merger has profound implications on politics of Sudan and its neighbouring countries

NCP-SPLM Merger has profound implications on politics of Sudan and its neighbouring countries

The formation of the GONU on 9th July 2005 in Sudan has deep and profound consequences in interrelationship that exist between politics, geography and population of the two governments and their neighbouring countries, for example Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Congo, Chad and Egypt. Indeed, close and critical analysis of the outcome of the recent talks between SPLM and NCP reveals the direction and scope to which the newly political fragmentation between the two partners ought to take in order to find a possible solution to political crisis now happening in Sudan, which is now a situation of going back to war in order to achieve a full implementation of the CPA and total power over the country as seen an option by either NCP or the SPLM in the current situation.

Although CPA has brought small development, freedom of speech and some security stability both in the North and South of the country, there are still a lot of challenges impacted by the CPA and the formation of the GONU. For instance, Southerners as well as the marginalised people of Sudan have now known the full cause of Ayan-nya war in Sudan and so if South is to revert to war again with North, it will be an individual choice to take arms against who, and each and every citizen of Sudan has now known their boundaries with Arabs and who is their brother and where to lean on when in trouble. On the other hand, the current political situation in Sudan has affected her neighbouring countries especially Uganda and Congo in terms of insecurity. The government in the north is still arming the Lord's Resistance Army of Uganda to commit atrocities against the people of Uganda, and the Jajaweed militias against the people of Darfur in Western Sudan. These solid facts happening currently in Sudan and other mentioned areas.

From the above readings, the pessimists and columnists alike, might ask and want to know what the SPLM/SPLA must do to liberate its people from oppression and social injustice under the state being ruled by an army Field Marshall president. However, the new SPLM/A must address and help seek peaceful resolutions to an innumerable of problems facing South and the marginalised Sudanese. Those problems, be the war, political negotiations or declaration of an independent state, needs a committed leader who is ready to commit time and resources in ensuring that solutions are obtained. Otherwise, if we do not get up and fight for our freedom, which is our wish and hope, we shall not attain it.

Call to save Aliab community from Mundari terrorism

His excellence, Gov Daniel Awet Akot Madut, Thank you very for saving Lake State from tribal and sub-clean fighting in the hand of former Governor, and again your leadership has been successfully in term of disbarment and fighting corruption in the entire state. However, I'm hereby requesting your kindly authority to take a close look into the Aliab county security concerns with Mundari people, because during the war and after the war, these Mundari people are terrorizing our people without any question from the Government of Southern Sudan nor the Government of Lake State in which you are governor.

His excellence, Gov Daniel Awet Akot Madut, Thank you very for saving Lake State from tribal and sub-clean fighting in the hand of former Governor, and again your leadership has been successfully in term of disbarment and fighting corruption in the entire state.

Hence, I just learn this morning that one of Akot Payam citizen within the Aliab County has been killed and four others were extremely wounded by Mundari people in the cattle camp known as Amathom this week. All in all, still yet there is no word or action that has been taken by both of your Government and the Government of Southern Sudan. Such an act of terrorism by Mundari is not acceptable by the members of Aliab community who are here in Diaspora.

After the CPA was signed every one in Sudan was suppose to enjoy the fruit of peace, but this is not the case with people of Aliab community. I hope you Governor and your leadership will take this message seriously and act quickly without any delay, because this is the only way you can save this great community from the hand of terrorist whom are authorized by their governor Clement Wani.
