In spite Kerr’s request for more consultation, IGDA, its backers bluntly accused Kier for refusing to sign agreement reached by his opponent, the entire IGADA’s watch dogs. Saying he is derailing the prospect for peace, not understanding Keir’s view of national interest as a whole. I think this nonsense agreement shouldn’t be allow come to its fruition. It is a recipe for disaster which could pave ways to the division of south Sudan into quasi tribal war lords control entities.
I am not impressed either with the devolution, allocation of the new power which sets a precedent for breakup of the south Sudan, could eventually led some to declaring independents from the rest of the country, controlled by warlords likes Machar Teny with paramilitary groups loyal to them taking extra- judicial measures undermining national security interest. Since they are not loyal to the national government in power imagine what kind of government they would be running in those areas control by outlaw groups, undisciplined white army militants. It is an invitation for a disaster.
In another word this division of the south into quasi states sets another example of Kosovo like breakaway region where the so called NATO forces spearheaded by the US created a defunct Kosovo’s autonomous government before our very own eyes. And in midst of confusion from the outbreak of war, Kosovo was granted autonomy to administer itself until such time unification is achieved with Serbia.
It was then a lovely idea as it was cast out to by media to convince the international community to end tumults brought by decades of ethnic in fighting, an ethnic ideology for the first place manufactured in the west, smuggled before the break up of Yugoslavia’s into entities.
In the name of democracy, protection of ethnic groups, the aim was to plant seeds of hatred in the rocky mountains of former Yugoslavia, push for breakdown, collapse of state into fragmentation, they succeeded in doing that, with unification betrayed Kosovo declared its independent from Serbia, created a country with no history out of nowhere.
I think Kier refusal to sign this agreement was correct. My understanding is that the nation of south Sudan is behind him, he also got some supports from some friends, from leaders of the east African community of nations. Nonetheless Kier also must tirelessly double his efforts to end bloodshed, accept some kind of compromised agreement with rebel leader Machar Teny.
First a comprehensive peace agreement from national security standpoint, a national reconciliation in the best interest of all. No one should be daubed to sign an agreement he doesn’t knows about, again national interest, the security of nation must come first. It has come to our attention that south Sudan government was dubbed, kowtowed by IGAD"s "paper tiger" in order for him to simply signed peace deal. A peace deal I believe was concocted, brewed somewhere else without knowledge of the national government of south Sudan. I think this peace deal was already dead from arrival. It should be rejected as a trickery compromises, shouldn't be considered by the government of south Sudan at all.
Second, a peaceful agreement must come from the mouths of both leaders, not by the imperialist agents from IGAD. In my book south Sudan is heading for eventual collapse, unless the people south Sudan stand firm, resist kowtowing to the pressure mounted on them by the IGAD'S watch dogs, their sponsors. If it is up to me so called Mesfen the Ex-Ethiopian foreign minister with a de-facto position should have been fired from leading IGAD, because his background in negotiating territorial concession, during Ethio-Eritrean war has been a disaster, with some even calling him Eritrea's representative in Ethiopia.
Don't wrong me, I am for peace & stability of south Sudan. But peace must not come at expense of the general welfare of south Sudan people. It should be a genuine peaceful resolution, where grievances are addressed , all point of contentious issues are resolved. I am against dividing nation of south Sudan into quasi states, with every territory divided control by outlaw groups.
I called for a formation of a “new peace doves “to be formed with a task bringing all stakeholders to the conflict around the table to sort out all their differences in peaceful manner. in other word for a comprehensive peace deal to be worked out, the government of south Sudan, the rebel movement must come to understanding peace is their only option for the stability of south Sudan, that all peace loving peoples hands are behind them, they shouldn't be afraid with bad deal/good deal scenario evaporating from tiresome negotiation. And that civil, peaceful working agreement for lasting peace for south Sudan is imperative, and important.
