Warrap state: Over 300 youth mobilise in support of SPLA forces


By Julius N. Uma

April 17, 2012 (AWEIL) - Over 300 youths from Gogrial West County in South Sudan’s Warrap State on Tuesday voluntarily registered and embarked on training as part of the public campaign to mobilise support for South Sudan’s national army (SPLA), officials told Sudan Tribune.

The recruitment of young people to join the army and paramilitary forces has been occurring on both sides of the Sudan-South Sudan border in recent weeks as the two countries clashed along their largely demarcated oil-rich border.

Morris Mabior, the initiative coordinator for Warrap State’s mobilisation program said several centres have been established in within the state to oversee the ongoing voluntary registration process.

“As you may be aware, our governor called for the establishment of three committees to assist in mobilising people against insecurity, food and economic crisis and the people of Warrap are positively responding to this call,” Mabior told Sudan Tribune by phone.

Those recruited, he said, will be taken to Northern Bahr el Ghazal state and trained to provide the necessary services to the country, when called upon.

On Saturday, Warrap state Governor, Nyandeng Malek, told members of the south ruling party to begin mobilizing the people in the wake on escalating tension between Sudan and South Sudan. Analysts fear the situation between the two could trigger a full blown war.

Nyandeng also directed the immediate establishment of a media, women and youth committee within the state as part of efforts to enhance public mobilization.

    Where are the other counties? We need over 30,000 youth from one state. 300,000 properly trained and well-equipped military youth will do good job alonge side SPLA by counterfight popular defense forces which fight alonge side SAF. After that we will see which God is powerful, Allah who loves to kill or God who will stand with Southern Sudanese.

        Genesis -9 .(Ham), the father of Canaan, saw his father’s nakedness and told his two brothers outside. When (Noah) awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers.” ( Ham, offspring in S Sudan born to be slaves)

          Well, the man you want to debate here is a theologian scholar both in Islam and Christianity. You automatically lost this debate. Of course, you are right of Genesis 9 message of Ham, but you get confused who’s cursed, Ham or Canaan? It was not Ham but his son Canaan, and who was Canaan? Ham had three sons, Kush, Egypt and Canaan. Kush’s descendents are Kushites including South Sudanese, con

            Egyptians include majority in Egypt and Syria, and Canaanites are Palestinians and people around Palestine except Israelites. Canaanites, the slaves and Kushites, the Nimronite warriors are greatly different, you son confused father. How can someone who doesn’t know his own identity be able to narrate us the history of creation?

        I guess you name yourself wrongly that you are sober rather than speaking frankly that your name is drunker. If you were sober in northern Sudan, would ever put your feet in the fire while you know it is pretty hot? I don’t think so, you done a miscalculation to bomb south Sudan territories without thinking that you will get sting from bees. Your brothers who were captured have test it.
