Lam Akol to launch election campaign in Juba next week


February 28, 2010 (JUBA) – The former Foreign Minister of Sudan and leader of the breakaway Sudan People’s Liberation Movement for Democratic Change (SPLM-DC), Dr. Lam Akol Ajawin, is expected to launch his election campaign next week in Juba.

Dr. Akol who currently resides in Khartoum is also expected to participate in the forthcoming inter-parties dialogue which is scheduled to take place on the 3rd March.

The political parties in the South will discuss the code of conduct for the elections as many of them complain of harassment by the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

Lam Akol launched this Saturday his electoral campaign in Malakal, capital of Upper Nile State, where he pledged if elected President of Southern Sudan Government to curb corruption, promote democratic freedoms economic development in the semi-autonomous region.

During the launch of his election campaign on Wednesday in Juba, the First Vice President of Sudan and President of the Government of Southern Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, who is the SPLM presidential candidate for Southern Sudan, assured that all political parties in the South would be allowed to campaign freely.

He said he would also wish to see Lam Akol, his only challenger in the elections for the post of the President, conducting his campaign in the Southern Sudan’s capital.

Major General Gier Chuang Aluong, minister of Internal Affairs told the press that the Southern Sudan Police Service would provide the necessary protection to Dr. Lam Akol if he launches his campaign in Juba.

Gier said in a press conference he held on Saturday that there are more than six thousand (6,000) personnel of the Police Service who are trained to protect the exercise of the elections in Southern Sudan.

He added that the Police Service has been supported by the Government of National Unity in Khartoum.

This week, Dr. Lam’s party office in Renk, Upper Nile state, was reportedly ransacked by SPLM supporters.

Some elements of the Joint Integrated Units (JIUs) in Malakal had earlier torn his pictures posted along the streets of the town.

It is yet to be seen whether his supporters in Juba and elsewhere will be freely allowed to move and rally behind him during his campaigns.

      Dear Readers,

      Dr. Lam Akol should be accorded the right to freely campaign in south sudan as Arman and others are accorded the same anywhere in Sudan though Kiir’s important late-development of inclussiveness REALLY came too little too late. Kiir’s addicted tribalist ideologues advisers already ruined south sudan. Tribalists advisers, like Luka Biong, Deim Kuol Deim, Deng Alor and other non-Abyei tribalists need to know they are not save either when the tribal-time bomb explodes in south sudan. They helped set it up and the bloodbath needs to cover them as well, not just the indoctrinated innocent Dinkas tribesmen who were made to practice tribalism.

        Lam is like a woman that always divorce men. He was a SPLM member at a higher level that can enable him to change what is wrong in his party not to form another party.
        He is actually doing a business by running up and down. His Chief down there in his village is even makes good decisions than Lam who is Dr. for nothing.
        Lam which one is your last party after SPLMDC?
        In my state, even a dog will not welcome you Lam.

      Let there be free campaign for all parties because we know who is who though many parties are protesting each other. SPLM is the ruling party and the same time the mother of all. She should tease her children otherwise we can miss the goal.

      I particularly wonder how many votes will the presidential candidate Mr. Yasir Arman get as many civilians are scared and tortured by the SPLM’s Splas. As I talk now my very closely related 1. executive chief and 2. the paramount chief were killed with other 30 people and 40 wounded and 30,000 people displaced. Many houses are burnt to ashes in Chueibet Lakes State. What does this reflect to the election? A mess or mass!

      I would wish the S. Sudan president H.E Dr. Salva Kiir to double his thinking capacity and be more vigilant enough to break the obstacles.

      Dear all,

      Lam Akol will be allowed by GOSS Authorities to campaign freely in Southern Sudan but the question is what are the objectives he is going to tell us, the people he use to betray all the time for his own interests, Lam is preaching unity of Sudan, do we lost 2.5millions lives for unity, if i was Lam i shouldn’t be stupid enough to think about these people whom i used to kill all the time. Lam doesn’t confident in himself how do you think he will lead Southern Sudan for this critical time? He doesn’t believe other educated people in the South he thought he is the only one how do you think such person can lead us?

      Deng I strongly agree with you and to be honest i have been with him during the war,Can you imagin what kind of jeleousu he have,eating a lone,hates soldiers and like his subordinate to suffer. What can you support in such a person? I think this is the time people must know that leadership is not all about abtaining Ph.D,yes he had but can we evaluate his personality before we voted him.
      He committed many creams, and his vision was to destory the majority tribes by choaliding them and fight against each other so that the minority can rule.
      Can you choose such idiot mind? Ok to let you know more about him, he was the master plan of DinkaBor- Nuer tragedy in Jongle state it was was his plan.We need not to regred when thing torn a part,you can make a leader but can not change individual personality. think wisely.

      What do you mean by the phrase, “you will be on the track to helldom,” if there is an English word as such as helldom? Could you explain what you mean? Are you by any chance alluding to physical elimination or something?
      If so, is you grand plan include Gen. Dua, Col Joseph Bakosoro and all the 340 independent candidates challenging the SPLM? You need to turn away from such childish thinking sonny, otherwise prepare to kill us off all (as southerners), and that will result in an international intervention, because that will be a genocidal act.

            As far as Moron goes, I will call you moron anytime without a second thought. That is just how I roll when confronted with folks who lack mental faculties to deal with issues without resorting to name-calling.

        In every country in this planet, democratic government means many things. Such as; competetion between or among candidates, Right to vote freely, Right for every candidate to express freely even says about the pitfalls of his opponent to mention but few.

        Unless Dr. Lam Akol is accorded free atmosphere in the south, then there is no any democratic government to be claim in the south after the election.
        As the late Dr. Garang said, "If someone gives you some thing so that you can do for him some thing, take it but you know what you will do when time comes to take an action". So what Dr. Lam has for the people of south is to be analyzed by the citizen not any political party which is even trying to say the same thing to the citizen.

        SPLM is every time carrying its heart in hands when hearing about Dr. Lam and his party. But Lam should never be a threat if SPLM is confident that is has not undermined the interest of the southerners in the past 5 years.
        Many sources said that, the uncontrolled immigration of Dollars from south to other parts of the world in the past 5 years as southerners compete for drinking water with their animals or even drink directly from the Nile, has always been the major fear of SPLM.

      It is not a question about who will win the election, but how could south become first example for democratic management in African countries as young state that emerged recently from war.

      If Salva Kiir win, Dr. Lam should congratulate him. Likewise, if Dr. Lam win, the president Salva should congratulate him. Loser must be opposition to supervise the setting government activity.

      In doing so, we will prove to the enemy and to the CPA witnesses that martyer Dr. John Garang and the millions of southerners who denied their lives didn’t died in vain, but for South to be rule through democracy. In other word, we and the world will be seeing our martyrs by examples on the ground.

Don,t worry dear, Lam Akol is NCP agent that Southerners will not eliminated because he is our weak heart individual who love Bashier very much. My friend, compiagn is risky sometime anyway. The chance of Dr Lam Akol presidency in the South is finite perhaps 0.01% because some other traitors were eliminated already.

        Be advised that Lam Akol is human being whose life is short and could depart this world by any mean at any time.

        But those who think of a political assassination of other political party leaders are they ignorants and enemies of the South. Remember what have happen we, southerners were not in harmony before the Sudanese independence. Lack of our national unity has caused us long time struggling and lost of millions lives, hundreds of slavery and millions into diaspora and gave enemy opportunity to steal our wealth.

        In 1991 SPLM/A split, think of the consequences on both sides such as thousands of southerners being killed by their own hands that suppose to be instruments for their defense, drilling of our petrolium through our own safegurad and recapture of areas that were under SPLA control. Who was the benefictors? Southerners and Northerners?

        Those who are so call here as mad guys to kill Dr. Lam are willing again to hand back the south into enemy hand for decades and inflict more unrepearable grievances to our belittle nation.
        Let us all think of how to harmonize the southerners and make them build their nation rather than thinking about names such as Drs. Lam, Riek or Salva. These guys are the same and should be rejected not rule and bring good leaders we think they may offer good leadership or should be allowed to rule just by casting our vote.

          Mr. Okuch

          Your analyses are unconvincing, they are simply emotional pleads. Always try to separated realities from fantasies.

          Lack of unity which you stressed up there
          is associated with your client Dr. Lam’s name. We in the South knew about one revolution and that is the one that was created by the SPLM/A, but thanks to our self-centered Drs, we have managed to created another revolution within the obvious one known to many Southerners as SPLM/A. Creating a revolution within another revolution Mr. Okuck sound to me like "lack of unity".

          Your argument has always been that people who supported the SPLM/A are Dinkas, but the fact is the SPLM/A was created to liberate the entire region of South Sudan. Why can people like you Okuch advice Lam to wait until the liberation of the South
          is fully completed then seek leadership after that. The truth is they do not anticipate that all they want is distraction, that is what thier boss the Arab in the North want them to do in order to hinder possible break-off of the South.

          Okuch, if you want to be a real politician who cares about issues affecting Southerners you need to refrain from politics of those of Dr. Lam. Lam is absolutely naive, his quest for leadership is driven by his vicious willingness of fulfilling his personal ambition, that has nothing to do with the rest of South Sudanese.

If Abel Alier didn’t get eliminated when he was in Juba, what make you think a person with the Stuture like Dr. Lam would face death in the hands of his fellow Southerners. please I warned if you don’t stop your hateful preaching against southern politicians you disagreed with, I feared the same hateful fate you are preaching may well first happened (God forbid) to Salva Kiir. and I don’t wish it to happened to him or anyone else for that matter , because I love the South and its people wether i don’t agree with their policy or not!! Salva Kiir said " I didn’t choose to live"at the launch of his campaign for the presidency of South just a few days. well so to Dr. Lam Akol who took arms against Jallaba in 1986, he is here for a reason, and no one in the South Should dare threatend his life or there will be hell to pay if any one of the opposition or independent candidates should faced any harrashment by any security organs.

            Dinka Boy,

            What has Abel Alier done that made you compare him to Lam Akol? Abel Alier has done nothing to southerners and staying behind in khartoum during the war was really very helpful to the movement. You don’t know it but most of the politician and high commanders know what Abel was helping them for during the war. His elimination might be spoken by those who didn’t know what Abel contribution was like during the war while residing in khartoum. However, i am an advocate of well-established democracy in southern sudan, so i want Lam Akol to be given a chance to air his opinion and ways he is going to govern when he wins election. Why are people furious and mean to Lam Akol while are others are already forgiven. If those who had history of misdeeds and backward obstruction during the war are not forgiven, then why Riek Machar and others are holding dignitary offices in the GOSS. So i advice southerners to be calm and not overreacting and listen to all candidates and Almighty Lord of southern sudan will give them guidaince and direction who the right person to govern this time. we all need to eradicate ideologies of tribalism, nepotism, and the issue of oppressing minorities, then southerners will be fine to establish strong country.

              I don,t support those who are against SPLM ever since till now man.
              It seems that you don,t know the current history about Lam Akol.

              A loyal South Sudanese can not called South Sudan Arab nation. Please mark his speeches. Moreover, he defect together with Riek Machar but both of them were accommodated in SPLM in case you don,t know.

              In contrast, Lam Akol work side by side with NCP leader Bashier, and if you have doubt read how naive Lam Akol is against the indepenedent of South Sudan. Now Riek knows that very well after being rehire back Dr John Garang and that is why he don,t work side by side with NCP though he has problems awaiting for him for days to come.

              Please once again, i don,t support Abel Alier or others who are NCP agents and traitors. It is infinite 0.001% chance for Lam Akol to win South Presidency and i think he is wasting his spare time for nothing.

                please would you mind to peruse/ read my message one more time. It seems you didn’t get the content of writing. I didn’t appeal fpr your support Abel however, Abel is running for no position. What i was writing about is why people are furious and mean to Lam Akol while others who are secretely collaborating with NCP are not being talk about. What’s more, Lam Akol was not calling southern Sudan arab country, he was calling sudan arab country. Historically, sudan is registered arab nation in which we southerners got right to complain, but that burden or complain can’t be solved by Lam Akol a lone. So our blame to Lam seem to be baseless and unscrutinized because he was serving the interest foreign ministery to call sudan Arab nation. Thus, We need to be well informed in politic rather than changing the speeches to fit our hatred interest. However, i appreciate your response because it is debatable than other comments being posted on this website.

          No one will assasinate him or can do that, it is not in accordance with african culture in southern sudan. Lam did make some bad speeches in the past but he has his rights to campaign, am sure he will campagin with no trouble, he already campaigned in Malakal which is the second big city in south sudan, he did not have any problem. SPLM is not for hatred and divisions but it is for peace and unity.

        mind you southerners, Alam Akol has been given 400 cars by the Arabs world to make unity a must for southerners.

        No votes for Akol in the south , let him go back to khartoum where his party is opperating from but not juba

    Hi Dinka Boy & Ajang Aguer,

    Let us not be politically bias,tribalistic and ignorant of the fact that southern sudan is for all southerners.

    Whoever did join SPLM/A should get a credit for our struggle but we should also appreciate that others did contribute to the struggle in different ways.I think many people can become SPLM memebers if there are good policies and faireness in giving all opportunities to ourselves to develop the south.

    Dr. Lam Akol is a son of southern sudan and he can politically coperate with any political party in the north as long as he adhere to identity of people of southern sudan.

    Tell me who does not coperate with nothern parties including SPLM? SPLM is governing the country with NCP and they have political contacts with other opposition parties in the nothern.

    If you want peace in the southern sudan you must learn how to accommodate other ideas from non memebers of SPLM.You will not rule the southern sudan with the notion of one party system.
    Never will you succeed to dictate southern sudanese people as you wish.Expect civil war in the south if you are so stubborn as a party.

    No one tribe can ever take things in their hands for long.

    "He said he would also wish to see Lam Akol, his only challenger in the elections for the post of the President, conducting his campaign in the Southern Sudan’s capital." What happened to the Presidential Order? I thought somebody somewhere was undermining the Higher Court and its decision, as well as NEC decision!

    You know, that is why one should think of whatever he/she is about to say before saying it and not sticking to it. Somebody somewhere should tell me, as a southern Sudanese patriot, why should I be forced to vote for such a brainless creature? Southern Sudan has many good leaders and we should not settle for such a mediocre under any circumstance. Until we change our ways of doing politics drastically and strive for better we are ever trailing.

      The so called Dinka Boy, please stop bulling people on this website. You are communicating with people across the world not in your own village. Among them are wise, intillectual, respectful and educated unlike you still struggling with your tribal wildness. You need to be tamed and that will cost generational work.

      Let me use spiritual language to impart you with heavenly wisdom to help you to understand the reality. God says, "any house of kingdom that divides itself will fall." Is my comment above has no relation to this since I’m urging our leaders and our people to harmonize?
      God also says, "go to preach and open the eyes of blinds.? If what I’m writing here and the inputs of our other good southerners not the ways to open your close eyes block by dirt preventing you from reading the reality on the ground?

      You said I’m crying. Crying how and for what? Are we fighting here or someone is beating me here to make me cry? Am I crying because I’m predicting and revealing the possibility of the future problem that might emerge result of your wilderness?

      That is the difference between me and you. You have a shallow minded and lack of knowldege to read the future and respect.
      I urge you to embrace constructive debate because we are here seeking for solution for building our nation.

    Hi Dinka bias,

    You should know that Dr Lam Akol was the only true southern sudan son who defused Salva Kiir stubbornness when he wanted to create a political defiance after the CPA signature.

    You could be a compaigner for tribalistic domination but it is not going to work.You are wasting your time.All of us are for our motherland(south) and the only difference between is what ways we play politics.There is no New sudan.There is only southern sudan.

        I think the reporter is dishonest .Talking about next week,while ignoring his his campagin yesterday in Malakal ,is unfair!

        He should tell us how many people attended, so that those who talk about0.01% consider thier words very carefully.Anyway,so many people must have seen his campagin in the T.V!

        Dr. Lam is a highly qualified Sudanese, and if he is not dedicateted to the cause of the South,he could have been an emminent scientific figure in the most advanced counties in the world!Those who hate him do that on tribal basis.It is a shame! Every Sudanese should be proud of this man,irrespective of his political views or tribal affliation!

    People should know that Dr.Lam is a leader like any other south sudanese. He should be allowed to campaign and who knows he might win the election. Those gangs in Juba are not better than him. All human beings do mistakes and Lam’s 1991 history should not tight his hands back and leave the country to be robbed by those greedy dooms in Juba. GOSS officials only know how to calculate expenses but not profit.

        Hello Maker!

        I know your uncle is among those who are freely looting now but remember that time comes and elapse. Don’t be so mad of little school fees given to you and begin supporting madly the cause you don’t know. Ask me why? I have been to south sudan throught out and upto now I am still residing in south sudan. I fought in several SPLA battles during the movement, hoping that when the dust settle, we would enjoy but unfortunately it becomes some individuals property. I know you might be one of the current beneficials in GOSS looting but we need to preserve the identity and cause of the struggle. GOSS’s officials are incompetence, corrupt and too dishonest. The anti-corruption commission was formed and given to a woman to head it because they know the consequences of facing the truth. The current system in GOSS menu, is when one of them loots a lot, he or she is told to slow down the speed of looting. They don’t take themselves to court or go public. If you are informed (Maker), would you mind to highlight the achievements of your uncles in GOSS since 2005?

      Thank you brothers and sisters for reminding ourselves on what took place in 1991 when SPLM/A split into two.

      However, we should always inform the readers of the causes to the problems and outcome of problems. For example, what was a cause for 1991 division of the movment? The answer will be "abandoning of self determination and lack of democratic management of the movement." THIS IS WHAT REPEATING ITSELF UNDERSHIP OF KIIR SINCE 2005. We saw Dr. Lam was denied by SPLM and now SPLM denying independent candidates and denying candidates is a rejection of the grassroots who have empowered the independents to represent them. No doubt, Salva will be left alone with his group if they continue unethical policy.

      Then if we recognize the cause, we must think of solution which is 1991 split of SPLM/A.
      Then what are the problems caused by split? We harvested negative consequences so bad on both Torit and Naser factions. Enemy got used of our division and by our own hands, we killed our beloved people.

      Now let come to the outcome of the split of the movement. What have we harvested from division? Then our answer will be the birth of IGAD principles started in Frankfurt conference of 1992 which actually are the CPA that gives Salva Kiir a chance to rule the South today. BUT SALVA KIIR SHOULD GIVE SOUTH TO SEPARATISTS WHOM THEY SAID INFRONT OF NORTHERNERS, NUBIANS, BLUE PEOPLS THAT THEIR FIRST BULLET WILL BE SHOT AT SEPARATISTS.
      Now within our full acknowledgement of causes to the split of themovement, outcomes of the split, we should therefore evaluate them not DR. LAM OR DR. RIEK.

          Thank you Dinka Boy for exposing value to me more. I understand your attitude that may be a reason to place yourself into other planet.

          Explanation is crying according to your interpretation that put in profanity attacking writers rather than reading and evaluate their inputs silently.

          Look I will be more stupid if I consume my time with you.

    Yeah? And say what? He doesn’t think the South is ready to rule herself. Isn’t it an absolute contradiction to think otherwise and campaign to be the leader of those who you think don’t have no system to govern themselves?!

    I think he should campaign for NCP seat instead. Ooh I forgot he was sent to derail the South’s progress towards independence. Well, his time is up. I think it’s time for the Southerners to say loud and clear what "We Want" and NOT what the North want.

    Lam Akol is free to launch his campaign no one will ask him, as long as everything is according to the law t hen there iwll be no reason to stop him. As the interior minister said Lam will even get police escorts when he launch his campaign, this is going to be a free and fair election, so that those who loose should not complain.
