Since Turkish-Egyptian administration, Southern Sudanese people have never truly policed themselves. Thus, grievances got accumulated day-by-day, week-by-week, month-by-month and year-by-year till the Southerners voiced their dissatisfactions against foreign administration.Yes, millions of Southerners had denied their lives and millions them live in exile to secure the Fifteen-Point Programme of the SPLM.For our security, the first and important vision of SPLM is building southern strong army ( SPLA). This goal is laid out in the number two of Fifteen-Point Programme of the SPLM I have quoted below.
2-2 Development and Consolidation of the SPLA“The SPLA shall preserve and defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the New Sudan and it shall establish a firm code of conduct that will be respected and adhered to by all its members for cementing organizational unity and discipline, and for harmonizing relations with civil society, so that the SPLA is truly an army of the people, in which they have confidence, pride and hope”.
Machakos Protocol 20 July 2002 Signed by CDR. Salva Kiir Mayardit for SPLM and Dr. Ghazi Sulahuddin for Sudan government and witnessed by LT. Gen. Lazaro K. Sumbeiywo, special Envoy on behalf of the IGAD.
The principles 1-1 and 1- 2 state that “that the unity of the Sudan, based on the free will of its people democratic government, accountability, equality, respect and justice for all citizens of the Sudan is and shall be the priority of the parties and that it is possible to redress the grievances of the people of the South and meet their aspirations within a framework.The principle 1-2 “The people of the south Sudan have the right to control and govern affairs in their region and participate equitably in the national government”.
The protocol the president of GOSS Salva Kiir had signed himself is clear.Nevertheless, Malakal lives in fear and chaos because Collo people are not represented in police and army rather than imported Dinka from Wau and from large recruitment within the Upper Nile Dinka.American Slogan. “No taxation without true representation”. Americans had resisted British government under this slogan.
Questions:For the enforcement of SPLM visions, should Collo people express their non-violent resentment to GOSS or should we remain submissive to the dangerous situation Malakal lives under?If yes, I suggest that Collo people around the world and in Sudan should write and signed a consensual letter asking GOSS to:One: Withdraw Dinka soldiers from Malakal.Two: Represent Collo people in their regional government and in SPLA. Letter should be delivery to Collo king, government of Malakal and GOSS.
