Securityâ€™s deteriorating in Jongeli state
By: Mayar Mayar Kout
The insecurity in state of Jongeli
has took quite long then people expected, all of us have thought that, authority in state concluded to be a temporarily situation
and it will be sustain
but itâ€™s becoming opposite. All military personnel and (MI); agencies reported, the situation in state has shifted to different stage, and
they have accused directly to some previous â€śmilitias groups allies
of Khartoumâ€™s regimeâ€ť; for having a role in
all recent raiding civilian areas and killing
hundreds of people in state of Jongeli.
In fact, the insecurity in Jongeli started early 2009; we have neglected it, assuming that these militant groups will be laying-down their guns in any moment when a time comes. Also public opinion misread the circumstances
by saying â€śthese groups have adopted unacceptable behavior of using guns for robbery, and purpose of enriching themselves. (Any-anya Two) and Arms Robbery groups in Mid 80s in the region of Darfur. Both were great examples
Once again, those criminality acts, were adopted as a result of the long time war this nation has gone through.
However the things, as far as I know is totally
different then our minds thoughts, those groups are not simply a militias or a cows rustlers in between forestry in Jongeli state.
But they are becoming a conventional professions
with a greatest armyâ€™s guns ranging from heavy artillery tanks, Antiaircraft, short rangeâ€™s
missiles and long missiles so a state govâ€™t and southern Sudan and its military especially SPLA commanders
all above forces
shouldnâ€™t be in seatback mode. They need to study the situation in ground and act emotionally to terrorize an enemy.
What needed as I am ordinary citizen, is a security of local communities in state to be protected with toughness by govâ€™t of southern Sudan and its military personnel. The people of southern Sudan are expecting their security to be a first priority for govâ€™t and also it needs a Commander In-Chief who has ability to protect nationâ€™s territory from Invaders or robbery groups who uses arms to terrorize civilian from their rural and villages.
All of us know that, the insecurity in Jongeli state, is a (NCP); National Congress Partyâ€™s manufacturing they are behind whole massive insecurity
of state in addition to some southern politicians additional ally to Khartoumâ€™s regime like those of Raik, Gai, Lam Akol and Gogrial, Tany. All of those are on suspect list of govâ€™t southern Sudan they need to be question for their direct involvement in guns supplying and training of groups but before taking a peaceful accountability approach.
Our Minister of SPLA Affairs, GoSS and state govâ€™t they have to consider two toughest measures as a discipline for rebellion groups of their lifting firearms against country. And the following military steps will be applied definitely:
Commander In â€“Chief of SPLA and Minister of SPLA his New of Chief of Staff, All must let military action in state of Jongeli by having â€śNational Army of SPLAâ€ť to do jobs to protect nationâ€™s sovereignty and its territory. They need to deploy SPLA
more brigades to create a military blocks in
eastern border at Akobo County
with Country of Ethiopia by making a successful military clean-up, it requires collaboration with Addis-Ababa letting them understand that we are maintaining a security on our side
as stakes but we will not
operation beyond boundaries.
A Minister of SPLA and his Chief of Staff Commander J, Hoth. Both should held a tough talk with Khartoumâ€™s HQ military to ask them of getting their militias out of south Sudan especially from Upper-Nile state and Jongeli state. And also make it clear, in that meeting SPLA and govâ€™t of southern Sudan will be considering all options or choices in hands. There those of Dr. Khalil Ibraihim of Justice and Equity Movement (JEM) and Cde Abdel-Wahid El-Nur of the Sudanâ€™s Liberation Movement (
A Raizzackat militias of southern Kordofan state. All
will be potential quests in south Sudan if Khartoumâ€™s regime is refuses to kick-out Lam Akol, Gogrial Tany and Riak Gai to withdrawal their militias from Upper-Nile state and Jongeli
To close, the issue of insecurity in state of Jongeli, it shouldnâ€™t be view as a south Sudan and its ruling party of SPLM problem. Itâ€™s a threatening censer to both sides of conflicts in Sudan. Because both partners have association with militias, they could be use by (north â€“ south); which made a usage of militias to be very complicated. But there is chance for reconciliatory, and
it requires both sides to show a sincerity and commitment if they
hold on a security issue under control.
