BY /LWANYO AWANG PADIET

SINCE ADDISS ABABA AGREEMENT COLLO NEVER BECAME PRESIDENT OF SOUTH SUDAN AND WE THINK WE ARE GOOD IN POLITICS, HOW DO WE MEASURE OUR GOODNES?

ONLY MATHEW OBUR MAKE IT TO BECOME PRESIDENT FOR COUNCIL OF SOUTH AND WAS NOT WELCOME BY COLLO.

SINCE REDIVISION OF SOUTH SUDAN COLLO NEVER BECAME GOVERNOR EXCEPT, MUSSA KUR, AND HE MADE HIS WAY THROUGH NATIONAL CONGRESS PART (ISLAMIC FRONT) AND COLLO POLITICANS WERE NOT IN GOOD MOOD WITH HIM BECAUSE OF HIS RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND.

I DON?T KNOW HOW COLLO DEFINE POLITICS? IS IT WORKING FOR OTHER PEOPLE OR PROMOTING YOUR PEOPLE FIRST BEFORE OTHER LIKE WHAT WE SEE IN PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN KHARTOUM OR IN SOUTH DURING ALIER AND NOW SALVA GOVERNMENT.

 

WHAT COLLO POLITICANS ACHIEVE TO COLLO SINCE 1972 TIL TODAY?

    Hi dear friend Wad Awang'

    It is a good question for discussiion " Why Collo had never became president of South Sudan?"

    Allow me to start my answer by questions .

    How did those who make it from other tribes to the position, in the short history of South Sudan ?

    How will an Ochool become the president of South Sudan?

    Looking to the course of the history of South Sudan post Addis Ababa agreement (1972) where Southern sudan became semi outonomous for the first time .The first president was Mr. Abel Allier from Dinka (Bor) appointed by Jaafar Numairi President of the Republic of Sudan ,and here we ask " how did Mr. Allier or (Dinka Bor in Upper Nile Province by then) Convinced Numairi to nominate him to be the first Southerner to governe South Sudan, or did the President of the Republic got convinced with equation of balance and check (the biggest tribe in the South), and if it was the case, why didn't he nominated someone from Baher el gazal or( Aweil in particular) from the same tribe.

    The second President of the South was General Joseph Lagu from small Maadi tribe in Eastern Equatoria the same questions apply ??

    The third was Abel again???

    The fourth was James Tombora from Zandi ???? then redivion.

    The fifth was James Loro from Eguatoria, during Swar El Dahab Presidency

    Then came Kahrtoum agreement (1997) With Dr. Riak Machar from Nuer Bantiu followed by Dr. Riak Gai from Nasir.(Fashoda agreement got us Ministry of Road and transport better then nothing!!)

    And the big one CPA has came with our late unforgetable hero Dr. Garang from Bor followed by the current President Salva Kiir from Gogrial nominated to the position by the Splm Leadership Council.

    by analysing the data the position was not confined to one tribe although the Dinka got it more than once ,and my conculion is, we are not playing the game very well .And if we want to win the game ,we need to learn all sorts of playing tactics ,being it fair or.........[

    Dear Belshou this is a good and well documented answer to that wrong question of Lwanyo Awang where he thinks good politics is measured by being a president. Late Pio Yokwan Deng should not be forgotten because he was also responsible for Southern Sector at the begining of the Salvation Revolution regime.

  • Belshou

    Dear Okuk ' yes it is true that good politics does not measures by positions we aquire , rather than the good political programmes and agendas we could contribute with.

    Although many names had been honored with the position of presidency of Southern Sudan,but history will remember only few who had made a remarkable changes in the life of our nation regardless of their tribes.

    And we should not also forget our Uncle Luigee Adwok who had made it to the Sovereign Council of Sudan and eventually president of Sudan for some weeks .

    And Late Pio Yukwan as a member of Salvation Revolutionary Council ,which had only three members from South Sudan .

    Why Chollo Had Never Became President of South Sudan? By Lwany Awang

    This kind of question why Chollo never became president of South Sudan seem genuine, inspiring, and overwhelming to

    generate ideas in the mind of Chollo intellectual. Others may take it negatively.

    when team member posted something or question like Lwany Awang is for matter of discussion and no one should take it

    personally. We should take the possibility to discus the negative and possitive side of it in professonally way. But not by using

    direct attack. Direct attack is not a political way for correction.

    one thing to insert my position in this discussion "Why Chollo Never Became President of South Sudan?" Is because we don't

    support ourselves as a sociaty. If we have our candidate running for presidency, we don't rally or endorse and match behind him/

    her to give support for his/her success, but only discouragement. How can someone run for presidency when you don't have

    support from your own community?

    Take example from Lwany Awang, that only Methew Obur make it to become president for council of South Sudan but his

    initiative was not welcome by Chollo themslves. As a result of hassle and negative support, he decided to back down. This kind

    of attitude is not limited to Methew Obur. There are very many of them. We can not deny that our community is full of ignorances.

    I believe Awany question had answered by our two brothers James Okuk and Belshou, Although, his question seem wrong he

    knew what he didn't know. There had been few successfull mentioned, but I think Chollo dream or journey or future is not end up

    in them. We have to do more all the way up.

    We must support ourselves as a society. If our son has bility to lead, we must have solid support and courage for his or her

    success. Things must be discus to find negative and positive side of it and direct attack should be avoid and things should put in

    perpectives. That is the only way forward.

    Hello guys I was far from my desk for quiet days. The idea behind the question is not to attack ourselves or any previous or current politicians, instead is for evaluating our political performances. Can somebody deny the fact that our average Ocollo citizen in Malakal, Renk, Wadakona, and Kodhok etc is not happy with Nuer political leadership in Upper Nile State since 1983?
    Our problem we take things easy and compromise the interest of Collo whom we represent .And what we don’t understand in every compromise we make we push Collo away from a fair competition. Because sons and daughters of people in positions compare to average citizens, their kids take the opportunities because they have backup from their dads.
    The reason for the question is to evaluate our input versus our outcome compare to the surrounding communities. I think that is the scientific approach to evaluate our status quo.Therefore, from social science stand point there is not wrong question. No question no dynamic, no dynamic no life and so on what ever you can put.
    Finally we don't need to response or judge our contributions. We need to put together our ideas regarding the question (collecting data or ideas) .If somebody has contribution let him or her come forward if she or he has not well and good. We should have our way forward.
