Rescuing SPLM-led government from collapse

By James Okuk

?August 21, 2009 — The SPLM-DC is not void of ideas and creativity as some of its opponents think; otherwise it would have not been created in the first place. Its present cadres would have remained apathetic and sleeping while the Sudan, especially South Sudan is being sunk downwards because of incompetent, corrupt, tribalistic and dictatorial bad leadership shown by the SPLM in the past four years of CPA Era and its Implementation Process.

The strong reason why the SPLM-DC founders and cadres have used the acronym ’SPLM’ (Sudan People Liberation Movement) is because they do not have qualms with the Vision and Objectives of the SPLM, per se. The SPLM Vision and Objectives are very good (I am not saying excellent because it is still a human invention) but they lack good leadership within the SPLM to implement them beyond the public relations speeches and personalized propaganda.

The genuine case for the emergence of the SPLM-DC is that the current leaders of the SPLM have blocked and locked out the strong cadres who could have implemented the SPLM Vision and Objectives prudently and successfully within the framework of the CPA. Had these bad leaders allowed reform from within, especially during the 2nd National Convention of the SPLM in Juba in 2008, the SPLM-DC would have not emerged as the strongest and unavoidable challenger of the SPLM failed leadership. The desired change for good democratic leadership would have come from within the SPLM itself and not from without it. The current panic and fever of the SPLM leaders from SPLM-DC existence would have been avoided without painful need to swallow heart attack and blood pressure pills for nerve calming.

When those who called for reform and change from within were locked out and removed from the decision-making core of the SPLM (e.g. Politburo) then they were denied power from within too. Thus, it was logical and realistic that these rejected and wrongly hated strong cadres had to organized themselves as a team and practice their powers from without so that they do not allow their twin brother (the SPLM) to die without treatment first. This is exactly what the SPLM-DC is doing until it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that this historic people’s movement (SPLM) is too ill to respond to curative treatments.

In this regard, the SPLM-DC move is both tactical and strategic with a clear direction towards the purpose: Full and Joint Implementation of the CPA to its desired end with genuine democratic change. It is here that the SPLM-DC cooperates and engages with the NCP and all other political parties who are not anti-CPA. It is here that the SPLM-DC takes the issue of sincere South-South Dialogue as a nexus and a plus+ to the successful CPA implementation, especially the right of Southerners for self-determination as agreed in the CPA.

The South-South Dialogue and unity of Southerners within the diversity of their political parties and other organized arrangements will surely act as a strong balancing force for any attempt by some traditional Islamic Northern political parties to make the practice of Southerners’ Plebiscite for Self-determination very difficult or even impossible to achieve in near future. The SPLM should take this brotherly advice from me seriously and try to start looking at the SPLM-DC not as an enemy but a twin-sister for South Sudan interest within the overall denied interests of the marginalized areas.

Another justifiable reason why the robust and focused SPLM-DC political party uses the acronym ’SPLM’ (Sudan People Liberation Movement) is that this is an ownership of all the Sudanese people who are organized in a kind of ’Movement’ aimed at liberation of the people from bad things like failed leadership of the current SPLM party.

The incapability of the current SPLM leaders to offer good governance and deliver the needed public services and security in the South, is a vice that needs to be removed so that the people becomes free from its bad effects. This organized Movement is specifiable for particular purpose and direction like what have been done by the founders of the SPLM-DC; emphasizing Democratic Change (DC).

The SPLM-DC believes that a genuine democratic practice is a prerequisite for liberty and development of the people because this brings best change and right difference in the life of all citizens and residents. It is a pragmatic belief whose evangelization is made successful by institutionalization rather that personalization of pressing issues or problems. It is a political belief worth preachable by concrete deeds on the real ground rather than expected sweets from the sky.

Also the simple reason the SPLM-DC uses the term ’Chapters’ is because this word is an English Language used for organized arrangements for units of a bigger body. It is not a word with a copyright for the SPLM only. It is a word that can be applied by any English user. If using the whole English Language to express its ideas is a plagiary then the SPLM-DC could accept the verdict by some SPLM members that it is a party of non-originality. Notwithstanding, this very verdict can also implicate the SPLM since it uses English Language in its business too. So if this term is not a plagiary when used by the SPLM, so is it when used by the SPLM-DC too.
Thank you for your inquiry dear some-SPLM members and I hope I managed to answer you in a sincere and fraternal manner. I hope your question was a sincere one without ill ulterior motives to demonize the SPLM-DC leaders, cadres, members and supporters, even using propaganda and lies at times like the forged letter in the name of Dr. Lam Akol asking an Arab government for funding the SPLM-DC so that it could make unity attractive to Southerners. Who is Dr. Lam Akol to make Unity of the Sudan attractive if majority of Southerners decided that it is not and it will never become attractive? This is cheap propagandist politics from the dull forgers!

These shameless SPLM forgers were not keen cheaters because the date of their forged letter was 19th May 2009 while Dr. Lam Akol declared his Chairmanship of SPLM-DC on 6th June 2009 on an interim basis till confirmed or unconfirmed in the coming National Delegates Congress in Khartoum on 31st August 2009. Khartoum was chosen as the venue to avoid confrontation with some undisciplined SPLA forces in any town in Southern Sudan as the situation holds, hitherto.

Thus, that letter might have been forged for a Ghost Chairman who was not Dr. Lam by then. Also the forged letter was addressing Dr. Lam as a Former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Sudan while it is a common norm that party leaders do not call themselves with held government titles (leave alone, the former titles) when they are dealing with party matters.
But the funny thing is that Dr. Salva Kiir believed that duping forged letter and rushed with full emotion and motion to announce it shamelessly in the House of God in Juba at the Catholic Cathedral and in front of the faithful who went to the church to pray and not to hear bad politics. What a pity! He should have confirmed from the mentioned Minister of that Arab country in the letter if he were an intelligent and ethical SPLM leader.
But is it wise that a confidential letter could be exposed so easily to public by an Arab Minister in that Gulf country? Will it not degrade his reputation and relations with other politicians all over the world? Since when did the Arab countries started to expose to public their confidential assistance to political parties in the Sudan?

Stay well and accept my invitation for you to join the SPLM-DC at your free and voluntary will. All the SPLM-DC leaders and cadres are seriously determined to bring the necessary change for good leadership and governance, especially in Southern Sudan. Don’t miss this opportunity because the SPLM-DC needs you to contribute to this noble Movement for sincere Democratic Change aimed at improving the life of the people, especially the least advantaged ones who have been marginalized and stopped from enjoying equal right to peace, development and prosperity from their own human and natural resources.

But please don’t attempt to join the SPLM-DC if your aim is to promote corruption, tribalism, nepotism, mediocrity and insecurity. If you are a missionary for these vices the SPLM-DC shall be a wrong place for you to reside; may be it is better for you to remain in the SPLM with its current failed leadership or go to another political party.

There is no way for individuals and peoples with right minds and honest consciences to skip or avoid a better change for human goodness and righteousness. Such desirable change must come and be realized urgently and earnestly without any single instance of fear or regrets because it is a change for preservation of human dignity and prosperity. It is a right change and better difference that we can make and that we must pursue with highest human pride. So start to move now and the rest of the world will move with you and do not sleep because you will find yourself sleeping alone towards retardation and disappearance with no reputation!

    Dear James Okuk,

    Collapse! are you kidding? S. Sudan is not Somalia yet. I think you should find words that can bring you and your party to the main street of S.Sudan’s politics. you are exaggerating the situation in S.Sudan. We are not even near state of collapsing. So please do not use such words to intimidate and alarm people of S. Sudan. The reasons you’ve mentioned in your article does not support your points and realities in S. Sudan. It seems to me your are writing from nepotistict point of view;and tribalism is your motive to produce such a cheap article. It does not reflect genuine intellectualism. I’m wondering, how was your writings before creation of SPLM-DC look like. I bet it is totally different from junk you are writing now.

    Kumi.

      Your attacks on James Okuk confirm what he has written is true. He is somebody loves democracy just like many Southerners coming from marginalised tribes and communities. This is because democracy will give them the opportunity to contribute positively, and to be appropriately represented in running their community affairs. Moreover, he wants the best for his people all over Sudan unlike SPLAM. He is fighting hard to keep John Garange vision a life. I’m sure many out there agree with him and with Dr Akol. I personally, felt the sorrow of marginalising and isolating SPLM intellectuals recently just for being intellectual and civilised and have their different vision for achieving the common goals, but they are not Dinka or Neur. The attack on people like Dr James Okuk and Dr Lam Akol from the pro-SPLA ’’Sudan Tribune readers’’ will never intimidate them. Dr Akol has attracted a lot of attention during his time in the Ministry of foreign affair. In my opinion he was supposed to be the predecessor of John Garange, but he was not?! Why? , because there is no democracy in SPLAM and the high ranking positions are reserved for Dinka and Neur only. Now you will see for your eyes how the SPLA-DC will perform in the coming years. Please, wake up and stop calling whoever has a different point of view Arab or corrupt....etc. Keep your hands and guns away from SPLM-DC women in Southern Sudan please !!! The soul and spirit of Mariam Biringi and all freedom fighters will come to hunt you !!

          Thank you Andrew Ater REECH for the correction

          That was a mistake I meant SPLM-DC and not SPLA-DC. We really need political parties and democracy allowing each one of us to express himself/ herself without fear and abuse. We do not need new armies. We went down that road before and we know who horrible and destructive can be. So, let us bring people like Lam Akol to the light and listen to them rather than threatening them. Violence will create violence and the vicious cycle will continue. Our poor people on the ground deserve better deals

        Dear Kass,

        You’ve mentioned in your comment that "Okuk and Lam want to keep Garang’s vision alive." I do not understand! I thought Garang was a unionist, and you guys are separatists. What a contradictions!! Please do your research before commenting. Okuk could be better off without Lam. He needs to get out of Lam shadows. Okuk needs to be himself. He can have a prosperous future in Southern Sudanese politics by telling the truth (if any) without any further exaggeration.

        Kumi.

      Okuk, Collapse! sorry for your choice of words and how you defines SPLM compare to your SPLM-DC. I could not believe a PhD holder can speaks in such demented manner about the Party which brought you to light from evil NCP.

      My Friend, you should give yourself sometime and read articles written by people like Zach Manyok Biar. These are kinds of people we want and should listen to what they have to say in their narration.

      You looks like an owl with four eyes among two eyed owls. Listen to yourself talking PhD holder. You have talked about corruption and tribalism in your article in second pharagraph from the bottom if you will understand.

      SPLM is not a party of divison nor is it a corrupted party. It is a party which all South Sudanese stand for including you the most recently defected bodies.

      You are being used by the NCP as Mr. Sec.Gen. Pagan Amuom said in his interveiw with As a Matter of Fact in Juba on 8/22/09. You are being redirected by the NCP. Remember, you go and come back to the SPLM. Good Mr. puppet. God is watching who is doing what.

      Thank you.

    Okuk,

    You are a stooge of the North. The so-called SPLM-DC is an army of the NCP waiting in the shadows to create political instability where none existed. We are watching you.

    SPLM is founded on the principles liberating South from the yokes of northern hegemony. We are not going to be sidetracked by this sideshow of political shenanigans. You happened to the recently-appointed spokesman for the SPLM-DC. What you say lacks credibility and is based on false data and sources of information. As a party that inherited a country lacking even basic infrastructure, SPLM has done marvelously in maintaining pressure on the North to not renege on what they signed. It has spent money to buy necessary hardware for the preservation of peace. For South, maintaining the CPA is more important than going hungry. Without security, stomach is just going to be a part of a dead body.

    There are some uncertainities that the SPLM is factoring in its overall political posture. They don’t know how things are going to be in 1 or 2 years. They must be prepared accordingly. Unlike Joseph Lago who was convinced by the jallabah that Dinka has to be kept in check, Salva Kiir is willing to hedge his bets and prepare South for whatever may come. But more importantly, we are more interested in preserving the peace before commencing political, economic, and security changes.

    "The strong reason why the SPLM-DC founders and cadres have used the acronym ’SPLM’ (Sudan People Liberation Movement) is because they do not have qualms with the Vision and Objectives of the SPLM, per se. The SPLM Vision and Objectives are very good (I am not saying excellent because it is still a human invention) but they lack good leadership within the SPLM to implement them beyond the public relations speeches and personalized propaganda".

    Base on the above paragraph, can I ask you some questions and be honest to give your answers to other readers who might be feeling like me?

    1. Do you meant that Lam Akol has abandoned his good reason for engeering his first defection to liberate South Sudan?

    2. What would you do when Lam Akol defect again from SPLM-DC if things gose wrong as this man has been on the move?

    3. What the point then, by trying to serve two masters SPLM and SPLM-DC? (I am referring to your oppsition to Yong Deng suggesting SPLM should nominate Mr Malik Agar as its presidential candidate)

    4. Can you recall the statement made by Lam Akol when he was answering the question asked by Omar Al-Guozulli in Omdurman TV Program the "Confrontation" and Lam repeat it again to the Middle East Newspaper. To shorten it Lam Akol said; "SPLM did not give me the post of foreign ministry, I got it through my own capabilities". What is your interpretation of that statement? Where are Lam capabilities now to grip on to the position he got without SPLM assistance?

    5. Why Lam first trip to abroad started at Damascus instead of Egypt, Ethiopia or Kenya?

    Unjustifyable defending Lam Akol will bear damage beyond repair, so please, skip some times to advise Lam not to defect again from SPLM-DC.

      Thank U very much Mr Akol.I think u have raise some importance questions,However when we go into details.Mr Lam Akol was given one of the highest post within SPLA/M organ well known to be Sudan foreign ministry as per an accord sign in Kenya between bi-parties but in all he still continue defecting from his position,forget about his recent attitude towards S.Sudanese during liberation era.SPLM-DC has no political visions than just been underdog compared to that of SPLM and other parties in S.Sudan,so we(Southerners) are going to embarrass them deeply in the poll incase if the turn up in 2010 Sudan general elections..........#%#

    Reply to: Rescuing SPLM-led government from collapse

    Dear Dr Okuk.
    I personally appreciate your thoughts about the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) led government. As an SPLM supporter, I would encourage any citizen to criticize the Government of South Sudan (GOSS) led by SPLM, so the party can review it’s policy and correct it where they went wrong and the party also needs appreciation in order to promote the will of the majority who embrace that particular achievement.

    As you (Okuk) stated in your article: Rescuing SPLM-led government from collapse dated August 21, 2009 that “The current panic and fever of the SPLM leaders from SPLM-DC existence would have been avoided without painful need to swallow heart attack and blood pressure pills for nerve calming” there is no panic and fever as you called it, rather the SPLM-DC is the one having a hard time to swallow the bitter pills of the democracy they claim.

    You also claim that “Khartoum was chosen as the venue to avoid confrontation with some undisciplined SPLA forces in any town in Southern Sudan as the situation holds, hitherto” dear, Okuk. The road to democracy is always rough and tough. The democracy that the SPLM-DC is claiming to bring to the people of south Sudan will not just rise in the ocean to the sky and fall upon the south Sudanese, there is nothing of that kind. Remember when Martin Luther King junior said, “that our life will begin to end when we keep silence on thing that matters” and again he said , “ its not what matter to me, its what will happen to these people if I don’t speak up for them”. In this regard, the SPLM-DC can not just chose Khartoum as the venue and leave behind the very people they claim that they are fighting for their liberties and their development, it’s just absurd.

    Accusing SPLA as undisciplined forces Dr Okuk is unacceptable. It clearly shows that the SPLM-DC is out of touch with the people of south Sudan. The name SPLA should be respected for God’s sake. You have the right to criticize SPLM but not SPLA for this reason if the SPLM-DC presents their policies to convince the majority of the South Sudanese to become the dominant power in the South where will they get their disciplined forces? I guess it’s the same “undisciplined SPLA forces” so Dr Okuk mind your argument please.

    Dr Okuk you believe in a responsible government, so do I. I believe in the notion of the government of the people by the people for the people be held accountable but let me remind you, Dr Okuk, that the SPLM is on the highway and the exit that determines our destiny is approaching, can we all please keep close attention not to let SPLM miss the exit as a result of the passengers distraction, then we can start shouting out loud when we are safe?

    Dr Okuk, I for one can only ask you to tell me of what Dr Lam Akol has achieved for the people of the South Sudan that you can be gaga that “The incapability of the current SPLM leaders to offer good governance and deliver the needed public services and security in the South, is a vice that needs to be removed so that the people become free from its bad effects”, you can deliverr the services to the needy people in many ways without being a parliamentarian as long you have qualification like yourself to write your own project for the benefits of the needy ones.

    People of South Sudan have more than enough for Dr Lam, there is a saying, “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me” therefore, it will be upon the people of south Sudan to deliver the verdict based on the above saying. Dr Okuk, remember that the one who betrayed the people of south Sudan more than once will know Doubt to betray them again as the saying goes, “once a thief is always a thief”.

    Dr Okuk, note this, in the history of South Sudan we have seen the “bad Dr” and the “good Dr” I will leave you to choose which side of the ‘Dr’ you will be as we all know the history of a South Sudanese name with ‘Dr’ and if you decide to choose ‘bad Dr’ be it at your own peril, its up to you.

    Sudan leadership collapse since independence MR. Man.
    Witnessed by frequent series of war by wise Sudanese starting with the Ayanaya1,Ayanya2 and the SPLA/M ,Darfur factions and even another one will soon follow if NCP still remains in power.

    The SPLM comprised of strong, visual dedicated and objective(stable leadership)with exception of one lunatic barbaric and unstable.....SPLM-DC who wonders around like a prostitute who hunts money from any human being regardless of handsomeness,honest , ugliness ,dirtiness and with out panning for her future survival and that of her family.

    The SPLM is rapidly progressing with its leadership starting in the south and later to other marginalized areas.

    So my dear readers out there ,do not be lured into nonsense by people who wanted popularize themselves out of selling your rights to terrorist.

      ANSWERS TO AKOL LIAI MAGER ABOVE QUESTIONS:

      You asked, "What would you do when Lam Akol defect again from SPLM-DC if things gose wrong as this man has been on the move?"
      To answer your question,no human could correctly predict outcomes of future events. But what I know pretty well is that Dr. Lam Akol and Dr. Rieck 1991 rupture was a step to force Dr. John Garang to focus on self-determination for southerners and popular consultation for the people of the marginalized areas to democratize the SPLM. The result of 1991 defection is today the CPA and GOSS. Then it was very urgent to criticize and defect for positive result for all people of Sudan. Furthermore, Dr. Lam Akol was not chairman of the SPLM/A before, but now he is the chairman of the SPLM-DC enabling him to conceptualize, brainstorm and execute his plan without head to block his plans. More importantly, his party is a democratic entity where its members would gather and table issues to debate. Then when people share their different point of veiws, they overcome nay challenges unlike SPLM/GOSS run by Salva Kiir and Pagan Amum.

      You went further asking very good question # 4 that,

      "Can you recall the statement made by Lam Akol when he was answering the question asked by Omar Al-Guozulli in Omdurman TV Program the "Confrontation" and Lam repeat it again to the Middle East Newspaper. To shorten it Lam Akol said; "SPLM did not give me the post of foreign ministry, I got it through my own capabilities". What is your interpretation of that statement? Where are Lam capabilities now to grip on to the position he got without SPLM assistance?"
      Let me repeat the saying that, "right man in a right position", to help you understand what capabilities mean.
      Dr. Lam Akol means his education, natural intelligence endowed with, experiences etc were factors that brought him to the position of that post. But Dr. Lam Akol deserve more than minister. He suppose to be preseident of Sudan. Deng Alor was appointed because he possess no qualifications rather than tribal link.

      To answer you question #5 that,
      "Why Lam first trip to abroad started at Damascus instead of Egypt, Ethiopia or Kenya?"
      Look, no one can tell a leaders with whom they should be connected or whom should they visit. Politics does not has its color nor direction. It depends on cirucmstance on the ground. But what I know that it was a good decision to visit Syria is because Syria, Egypt and Saudia Arabia are heads of the Arab world. Dr. John Garang enjoyed good relationshio with those states during liberation and if you can remember how Nasir faction supporters in Egypt had suffered in the hands of Egyptian security was because of Garang relatioship with those countries. So since our hero John Garang had paved the way for SPLM to countinue such relatinship with Arab, we who support Dr. John Garang must follow his ways.
      For this advise that,
      "Unjustifyable defending Lam Akol will bear damage beyond repair, so please, skip some times to advise Lam not to defect again from SPLM-DC",
      Dr. Lam Akol has defected because Salva Kiir and his groups have no ears to listen to advises and they have no heart to share the the feelings of others because they are dictators. But Dr. Lam Akol party is democratic where people are allow to share their opoinions and again Lam is the head of the SPLM-DC no like the time under Salva Kiir and Pagan Amum. So do not worry that he will defect from SPLM-DC.
      I hope I’m close to naswer your questions.

        To William
        you said, "... Dr. Lam Akol and Dr. Rieck 1991 rupture was a step to force Dr. John Garang to focus on self-determination for the southerners and popular consultation for the people of the marginalized areas to democratize the SPLM",
        How was it a step?? a step aim at destroying the civilians. a court case is awaiting.

        They defected and formed a party which later joined NCP/NIF. Dr.Lam defected and formed a movement which fought Southerners and not, NCP,the Enemy of the Sudan. He was the a leader of "THE PARTY" and his actions were witnessed by Southerners in 1991 and recently as a Foreign Minister(where he turned to focus on Middle east issues and not South or Sudan).As a result, we think "SPLM-DC" will do more harm to South Sudan. Why? because Dr. Lam political ambitions are not correctly defined or clear.

        Do not stand for what DR. AKOL claimed(Self-determination) to be right. Right now, Southerners are not ready to accept his ideas until after 2011 when we vote for separation or Unity.

        Not to waste time, I think you can give a change to James Okuk to answer Akol Liar Mager’s questions.
