“Justice must be served first before peace. Justice is a critical component for long-term peace. When individuals are not held responsible for their actions, entire communities and societies are left to be blame and they became the target of the future violence.”

After the incident of December 15, the government of the republic of South Sudan under the leadership of President Salva Kiir experienced a huge unexpected lost when more than 70% of the country’s armies defected and joined the revolutionaries also known as freedom fighters (rebel) under the leadership of the former vice president Dr. Riek Machar Teny who was sacked on July 23, 2013.

Experiencing this great loss, the president had no option other than inviting foreign forces to fight and prevent his regime’s collapse.

So president Kiir invited Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) to help stabilise the situation.

A winning tactic first, before he could come up with the idea of a mobilisation team.

The mobilisation team’s objective is to convince South Sudanese in the country and those in foreign countries plus the international community that what happened in Juba was a planned coup attempt masterminded by Dr. Riek Machar.

The mobilisation team failed to deliver the message due to lack of evidence which led to the mass killing of Nuer civilians in Juba.

One of the final tactics of Kiir’s regime is to deceive the RSS-citizens and the International community by preaching peace and persuading the citizens that Gen. Salva Kiir is the legitimate president of the country whom we voted for.

To me, the government I voted is doing me no good, I am killed, there is no job vacancy for me, I am humiliated, I am denied my primary right as a citizen; so, I must respond to the national call to defend the sovereignty of the country as a soldier.

My only Television station/channel “SSTV” calls me names, I am afraid to live in my country and the only option I have is to either neglect and praise the government that brutally murdered my family, relatives and friends or vote it out, vote it out and vote it out.

My objective is to stand behind the leader who is fighting to bring freedom, justice, prosperity and the principle of equality.

That leader is Dr. Riek Machar who once said: “I am expecting a nation where Gatkuoth, Lado, Obach, Mabior, John, Muhammed can sit side by side on a table of brotherhood.”

In the implementation of his final goal, president Kiir will impose the six basic institutions that allow dictators to maintain their powers.

According to Ghanaian professor George Ayittey, the six institutions used by a dictator to keep him/herself in power are;

1. Security forces

2. Media

3. Electron commission

4. Parliament

5. Civil services

6. Banking System

In conclusion, I would kindly like to inform my beloved citizen of the republic of South Sudan that we were all once called rebels before independence and that was because we were mistreated by the government of the North, now if the leadership of the Republic of South Sudan repeats the same treatment and behaviour, its people have their ultimate right to rebel.

Unlike any of the African countries currently under the one man rule (dictatorship), South Sudanese will not tolerate anybody who attempts to oppress them.

I am confident and I know that my beloved countrymen and women will not allow Kiir’s regime to take them back to the ugly past.

“You cannot be trusted to steer a ship to safety when you are the architect of its collapse.”

If you did not understand the root cause of the December 15 incident, you won’t understand the reason why justice must be served first, it is only when you can see your weaknesses, gaps, hatred toward others and admit your wrongs that you can be reform and find peace.
