South Sudan has political ‘roadmap’ for post-referendum governance – Machar


January 20, 2011 (JUBA) – Riek Machar, the Vice President of the emerging new independent state of South Sudan said the region has already prepared a “roadmap” for post-referendum governance, dismissing fears of political instability after independence.

Nearly four million South Sudanese casted their votes last week in a referendum to decide if they want to break away from the rest of Sudan and form their own independent country or remain united after 55 years of liberation struggle, that started on 18 August 1955 in the town of Torit town.

Preliminary results have so far indicated the overwhelming vote in favour of secession, which will lead to declaration of independence in July after confirmation by the referendum commission of final results in February.

However, general fears are being expressed about what the political situation of the new state will be after it gains independence. Some observers call it a failed state in waiting that will be marred by political instability and ethnic tensions. Currently, the SPLM is the ruling party and there are dozens of other political parties in active opposition.

In a meeting in Juba with a UN delegation led by the chairman of the UN Panel to Sudan and former President of Tanzania, Benjamin Mkapa, Machar explaiend that the South would emerge politically stable. He said the region has already prepared and was committed to a post-referendum governance roadmap.

Machar equally assured the top Chinese diplomat in Juba, Zhu Zhibin, on 20 January of the future stability of the South. Last week the leader of the United Democratic Front (UDF), Peter A. Sule, in his BBC interview revealed what he called ethnic domination in the present government and marginalization of some other political parties.

The Vice President said that the region would immediately begin to implement the resolutions and recommendations of the roadmap after declaration of the final results of the referendum, in order to avoid such political tensions.
In in October 2010, all the South Sudanese political parties held a conference in the regional capital, Juba, UDF included, and agreed on the roadmap to guide the future governance of the region after the referendum.

The roadmap stipulates that a constitutional review conference will be conducted after the referendum and will agree on the specifics of the formation of a new transitional broad-based government by 9 July 2011 under the leadership of the current President, Salva Kiir Mayardit:

“An all-party constitutional conference shall be convened, in the event of secession, to deliberate and adopt a new constitutional system of a new independent and sovereign state.

The constitutional conference shall discuss and agree on the formation of interim broad based transitional government under the President of the Government of Southern Sudan, Salva Kiir after the end of the interim period.

The transitional government shall be charged, inter alia, with the duty to conduct the population census and general elections for a constituent assembly that shall
promulgate the current constitution.

The constitutional conference shall decide on the length of the interim period, necessary to carry out general elections for constituent assembly.

In order to ensure effective implementation of the conference resolutions, a Leadership Consultative Forum was formed under the GoSS President with membership of all the chairpersons and representatives of all the political parties and tasked with the follow up and implementation of the resolutions.”

Machar assured the convened that the implementation of the roadmap will further stabilize the political atmosphere among the political parties in the region. He further added that the new independent entity will create a stable heterogeneous country out of all ethnic groups.

However, he said he was concerned about the future of the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM) in the north of Sudan if South Sudan gains independence; the ruling party in the north, the National Congress Party (NCP) have indicated their refusal to allow the SPLM Northern Sector to exist in its current form after the South breaks away. NCP also operates in the south but many of their senior members have recently defected and joined either the SPLM or other opposition parties in South Sudan.

He appealed to the international community to assist the two regions emerge as democratic, viable and politically stable independent states, adding that the new state in the south will continue to build good relations with the north and resolve post-referendum issues in the next six months.

    Dear Machar,we the Dinka forgive you for your messes but history of southsudan will not forgive you.

      Dear readers,

      May God bless all the democratic visionary leaders in South Sudan.

      Thank you Gat-Machar for reiterating your democratic vision for the new state.

      Yes, we the citizens of South Sudan will not continue to tolerate bad governance in the South after independence. Our first focus was on how we all together steer the ship of separation sucessfully to the shore. Now that the so-called new united (socialist) secular Sudan is confirmed dead, our next focus is full realization of good governance in South Sudan.

      Any ’benydit’ plus other smaller ’benys’ without ’dit’ must be told that these time we, their subjects, need realization good governance and the rule of law.

      Dictatorship, lawlessness, tribalism and corruption will not be tolerated after we are done with Jallaba. Your vision of self-determination has won over all the unwise visions and here we are in "One Hand" of separation as predicted by Ngundeng.

      Any slight attempt to resist change may result to dire consequences. All the political parties should participate in the next transitional government with key posts distributed equally and fairly.

      May God bless South Sudan!

      Gen. Salva Kiir Oyeee...

      Dr. Riek Machar Oyeee...

      Gen. James Wani Oyeee...

        Dear Gatwech,
        Abiomur doesn’t understand the future. He is a past tense dreamer! The reforms that Gat-Machar is talking about is not of their nature. They are addicted to big spoons yet they are feasting in the same plate with others.
        He doesn’t like good governance and equality.

        Dear Countrymen,
        The bright future of South Sudan as Peaceful,Multi-partisan,multi-cultrual,Multi-Ethnic,multi-religious and Multi-lingual entity will neither be a single party democratic vission nor would it be from one Political figure like Salva Kir,Dr.Riek ,Dr.Lam& Pagan Amum but from all loyal citizens of South Sudan whose minds abandoned greed,tribalsim,hatred and past-conflict memoirs and are willing to forgive and reconcile with others.

        If however you are not ready to the above Values, don’t blame any rulling party or the rare politicians we have because you don’t have an element of democracy and good governance in you!

        Remmember Change start with in you. If You practice good the corrupt leaders will shy.

      My simple question to Dr. Riek is what if SPLM refuses the implementation of such a constitutional conference (roadmap)? Don’t put all your eggs in a single basket! It’s not a brand-new culture for the SPLM to use forces and intimidate its own citizens when comes to realization of democracy, and quickly refer back to April, 2010. Three people were killed and slaughtered in front of you in Bentiu during that election and you were just mumbling under that big mango tree. In the same occasion across the region, the same killing and human right violation was practiced by the SPLM and nothing was done to stop it or let alone investigated it. All, you were saying is that democracy will one day prevail! Ok, let His will be done.

      All, am, I saying is that don’t deceive people to form such a broaden coalition government if within the SPLM party certain elites yet don’t believe in democracy transformation. Unless this times you will be the lion of Judah! Leave them until their stomachs are full to the cracks and their dirty mouths are full of corrupted money. The land that kills 2-3 millions will judge them one by one.

      Gossips are surfacing that these elites don’t like the constitutional conference change or the roadmap fearing that this will favour you (Dr. Riek). These groups are lobbying day and night that you and president Kiir will stay in your powers unchanged, but change be introduced for the rest of the government stakeholders. If that is the case and true, what is the need for calling such a constitutional conference in the very first place? South Sudan belongs to its citizens and therefore, any constitutional transformation should be done from top to bottom with no stone would be left unturned. By failing to implement such a constitutional conference, then the people of South Sudan along other parties will make a big noise and this is what the world community and the very concerned citizens called “A political tension in the new state”. But I can’t agree with Professor D’ Chan of his terming as the “Separation within separation”. But for sure, there will be liberation within the separation. For God sake let it not be!

      Before things get ugly, wisely advice Mr. Cow-Boy to open his ears widely and let not be deceived by the political opportunist encircled him.

      You have putted correctly

      Rech Machat from his hell which he go to in 1991 leaving SPLA/M behind with his Nuer mantality vission that some good-nature Nuer peole have never appreciated execpt the made dog who is living in the U.S.A is a only one who see good things in the person of Rech Machat.

      I urged him to see his type Rech Machat in the level of South Sudan people.
      I’M very surprise today to see this shoe saying

      SPLA oyaeee
      Salva Kiir oyaeee
      Pagan Amuom Oyaee.

      the father of South Sudan people and their liberator Dr Garang said in 1993 "I can forgive Rick Machar but will never forgive Lam Akol until my death"

      We say the same South Sudan people can forgive Rech Machat but the land of South Sudan will not forgive his Behviour at all.
      I hear hireling Lam Akol speaking on the other day in NCP TV saying that if independence of South Sudan happen I will prepare myself to go to South Sudan .... can you imagene that people.

        The proverb says, deal with foreign invading enemies first and afterwards you can teach your brother and discipline him for bad behavior.
        After July 9, 2011, it will be time to discipline anybody regardless of his/her position for past deeds and perceived lack of repentent. Good enough John Garang boys are still powerful and can discipline John Garang enemies properly.

        It is imperative just as machar did to remind our people and the international community that we do have a roadmap to ensure the independent South is governed fairly and inclusively.
        We the southerners do have resources and skilled manpower to govern ourselves as we catch up with the rest of the developed world.
        Many foreigners have wrong believes that power wrangle would flare up if south becomes independent.
        We shall prove them wrong that we do have the will and courage to adhere to the laws and procedures.

        The whole Nuerland was a stronghold of NCP till John Garang signed CPA. What do you mean by selling South Sudan to Arabs by Dinkas. Paulino Matip, Riek Machar and all Nuer militias were fighting alongside Arabs against SPLA/M with legitimate vision to transform Sudan to make it better for all of us.
        Tong-Tong, I don’t believe you people forget your past easily like this.
        This is complete shame to fail to identify who actually sold South Sudan to arabs. Your brothers (Jalabas) are now removed from you and we will see what you little minded people will do again.

          Dear readers, is it not a shame for both of cousin tribe of Dinka and Nuer to lock themselves on tribalism all the time? How many tribes are in South Sudan and how many of them do read their commends on tribal praising and tribal backing? Does this not make look stupid whether you know it or not?

          Some of our brothers on both sides contradict themselves. Sometime
          Es they too tribalists and sometimes pretend to Southern nationalists. Why don’t you people simply choose one side and stick with it rather than changing faces all the time like ladies who sell themselves for money?

          I am sick of reading all the time, we NUER and we DINKA are these and that. Wake up and leave short sightedness. This is not healthy way to start a new nation . History cannot be twisted no matter what you people think. Any problem between Nuer and Dinka is caused or will be caused.by ill educated people on both sides and which will eventually affect all Southerners.

        Tong Tong, why you people talk like a baby? With what army will you be able to kick Dinka out of South Sudan? Do you think if that was easy to be done the Northern Sudanese would not do so which would have prevented the fruits you people are enjoying today?

        Do you know how many Dinkas whom you so much hate have given up their lives for what we Southerners are enjoying today? What a child you are? What you said is like the saying of Hamedinajad of Iran in which he said of wiping Isreal off the map.

        Tong Tong, do you believe Iran have the capability of wiping off Isreal from the map? The same will apply to your brothers and sisters Dinka that you hate so much and if I were you, I should be very thankful to them for their unchanging determination? Believe brother, I am not saying this because I am a Dinka but I am saying this because it is the reality. If you ask Northern Sudan, the only tribe the fear most in the South is Dinka if you will due to their steady determination and their ability to play political games and I hope you get the point.

      You cannot talk of democratic transformation/transition and at the same time insult Dinka people. If the majority cannot participate in that process, do you think it will work? Brother, let’s be positive and not be naive as in the past, but come to terms with realities. You cannot, with other tribes build a viable state without the Dinka.
      We need whoever aspiring for the top seat in South Sudan to see Dinka as his/her supporters, but not antagonizing and insult them.

      Lokoria, was Dinkas that fought the North and their Southern food followers one of which is you. Dinkas did it because they men in the South who are willing to protect women like your type. They were the ones who stood in the face of your master Northern Sudanese to free you so that you can breath from the Arabs oppression. By the way, it was Salva who fought the Arabs for 21 years when Riek Macbar spent have of his time fighting along side our enemy . Do you think if Salva was to run to join the Arabs the South would have been able to get what you and your mother would be enjoying? All I can woman is Dinka liberated you from the North and it is your duty to respect them and thank them for their sacrifies . Yes now that South is free anyone can enjoy and be a president, a word new to the South but since we are not done with Sudan yet., only a man known to be one can lead us now until things clear up.

      Sorry bro, I’ve just come across your comment now. To tell you the truth, I am very proud to be a Dinka. I don’t regret it at all. And it is true that Dinka tribe is the largest tribe in the South. But that does qualify us to disadvantage other tribes in the region or look superior. Yes it is true that uncle Josephe Lagu was the engineer of the term Kokoro in the pass. That was his pass by the way. Should we now dwell on his pass?. How many kokoro’s supporters from Equatoria holding key positions in the SPLM led government now?. Should we dwell on their pass? I guess whose tribe is free from sins and wrongdoings? Yes it is true that some groups worked very hard day and night to destroy the SPLA/M. It is true that some groups inculding Paulino Matip came to join SPLA/M after the signing of the CPA. But should we dwell on their pass? It is true that Riek Machar created a great set back to the overall movement by joining the enemy in Khartoum. Should we dwell on his pass? Likewise, Keribino K. Bol who was from my tribe and one of the movement founders at the end committed attrocities and allied himself with the North against the SPLM. Apart from his positive contributions to the movement, our late hero and my true mentor Dr John Garang de Mabior did some wrongdoings also. To mention a few in list.

      My question is why should we not barry our pass and open new page? I believe every thing should be new..... a new state..... a new nation..... a new page..... a new spirit.
      Our pass in old Sudan was very horrable and terrible. It should not be visited.

      Josepha lagu is Salva Kiir Advisor for Public Affairs. He was right to publicly advise for term limits for any one who would like to be involved in public life. It has been widely proved that whenever you stay in power for long, you start abusing it terribly!!!!!!! A political roadmap which agreed recently between the SPLM and other Southern Sudanese political parties has answered uncle’s call. It was agreed that Salva Kiir will lead a broad-based government for 5 years after formation of new state. Therein, a new constitution will be discussed and passed. Call for elctions will follow. Our comrade Salva Kiir of course has the right to contest again if he wishes according the new constitution.

      Stay well

      Your brother

    hypocricy nature of following and supporting individuals
    out of fear ,except some of you tribal psycho-path self-righteousness. That’s why we have to keep an eye on some who misused their tribes for the purpose of the power.

    HEY guys stop going back and forth praisng Dr.Riek as if he is a hero, he must be a hero if we infact happened to label those who committed crimes and atrocities as heroes. let him work peacefully to relief himself from his past such that to get recognize and be forgiven and even if we forgive him, the perishable-number of (victims),the civilians he has killed won’t forgive him.

    So, let him do his job as our beloved vice president without appraising his well did at this movement of hardship because he might go crazy and blow it up, i mean the anticipated succession of our beloved nation,thinking that what he does, is always the best,...and comparision to few individuals whom are still babbling and clinging to the so-called (1991) as if it was perfect uprise but not knowing that it was delusional for havig taken thousands of southerners lives, both nuers and dinkas instead of using that force toward our common enemy.

    Matter of fact, the verity vision to claims is Dr. John Garang’s vision, since his vision was such a clear and pure and far from any evil associate, because his aim was to free all the marginalized people from every conrner of sudan and after he failed achieving it when his party was weakened by Nassir faction (ssim)who deserted the (spla) and joined the khartoum goverment to fight against the (spla) when it was almost at the point of capturing Juba.

    In that case, Dr. John shifted to his plan "B" of which brought us the (CPA) that he has signed in 2005, i will attribute it to him, so do every hardcore (spla) members since the inception of it to the end, not to talk of deserters.

    Finally, i will remind you one of his quotations: he said, when you are asking for something.....start with something greater or the entire thing and you will eventually end up getting half of its share, and if you start with something smaller then you will automatically end up getting nothing at all---this remind me of his new sudan vision he was aiming at and since he went unsuccessful on that, he ends up getting the portion of the whole sudan through (CPA) on which he stressed that, if you wanna vote for unity inorder to be a second class citizen then it’s your choice. So where the hell is Riek vision from here....stop visualizing criminal vision as visionary, tired of those hoodwinkers!.
