from the Devil "

It was correct when late Dr. John Garang said during the peace talks
after signing the initials
six protocols which was a great success .
they are going to discuss
the details of the agreement .
He added that " the evil is in the details of the agreement" , that was a prediction and it has taken place . And after the peace was signed the great devil appeared
the practical implementation was to take place.
That was mostly
following up the Sudanese peace agreement whether inside
or abroad . The first
appearance of that devil after peace signature
to me was at the time of forming the Government of National Unity (GoNU) , when the National Congress Party insisted on keeping the two ministeries of finance and the mining at its side . Secondly the delayment to form various commissions such as the civil service , parliamentary and constitutional review commission, and the list delays
The most important breaches to the CPA in my opinion are :
The issue of Abyei status : although the CPA has stated clearly that it would be administered directly by the presidency , it is staying up to now without resolving the borders issue neigther forming its council and the development many people there are longing to see in their area . The border was demarcated as it was said in the CPA
, that it will done by agreement parties and the international experts . And that final descision should have been
reached by the two partners because they have participated in together
but the devil is still dreaming of taking back Sudanese to war .
Secondly : the security violations in different
areas of south
threaten peace which cost a lot to make it a reality .
The protocol of
which the national congress party
delayed for one year until the issue was taken to the presidency and the security arrangement is another issue
. And even when it was resolved by the presidency ,
no clear sign to date
of the spirit of partnership to complete the
remaining laws/regulations of the state legislature to speed up the development in south Kordofan .
Dr. Garang was really a visionary leader he talked about a lot of things which are
happening nowadays. He talked about the split in the ruling party at the
time of war. After
the split in the SPLM/A in the early nineties , the SPLM has overcomed those problems by the rational leadership of late Dr. Garang
. If we can recall our minds back to the year 1999 it was the year where the split took place in the ruling party
which led to emergence of the popular and national congress party .
The devil is still struggling
and trying to destablise the situation .
What is needed from our leaders
is to encourage and
strengthen our marginalized people and keep their
. And from this point I would like to to appreciate the
those comrades in the Nothern sector , comrade Yassir Arman ,
Kual Manyang Ramadan
, Tabitha Butrus Dr. Amin Zakaria , Agok Makur and comrade
Deng Goj and the rest of comrades working behind curtains
. The organization and follow up
of the SPLM as a party
is significant for this period .
The south sector is now on process of organization led by comrade Pagan Amum , all these make our marginalized people proud of SPLM . And on top of that is our great
Moses , comrade Salva Kiir's performance and his cabinet, and his
visits to foreign countries looking for means to support peace implementation through the pledges made by
international community .
I heard on the news ,of
. the combat
corruption in the south is one of the
good things done by comrade Salva Kiir and that will make development easy
and even in the north we need the same procedures to be taken to combat corruption because it is the worst of all in
All the above work is a big
credit for the Sudan people but we
need more from other
was not the made of SPLM/A alone it is time for all the peace forces to take their
action peacefully and rid Sudan from the devil of division,
because the elections are around the corner we need to get rid of this evil destabilizing Sudan .
That action was translated by the people of Abyei when they took the initiative of fighting the devil peacefully
and taking a right decision of controlling their area . Dr. Garang said that CPA
is a Sudanese peace not Dr. Garang or Omer Beshir's , so peacefully and united
solve our problems and overcome our enemy
We can overcome the devil if we really believe in our rights and be patient to regain our rights back.
