Reorganise SPLM youth league, party leaders urge


February 29, 2012 (JUBA) - A youth group has petitioned the secretary general of South Sudan’s ruling party, demanding the immediate reorganisation of the party’s youth league, including dissolution of the current national executive committee.

The petition, a copy of which Sudan Tribune obtained, was published on 22 February. It urges the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) leadership to convene an urgent youth league national convention and establish an interim committee that will reorganise its youth wing.

Signed by 32 members from all the 10 states of South Sudan and Abyei, the petition, addressed to Pagan Amum has been copied to the party chairman, Salva Kiir, his deputies, Riek Machar and James Wani Igga, among other senior party officials.

“As the SPLM embarks on the transformation or re-structuring of its organs, we argue that it begins by reorganising the syndicated organisations, particularly the youth league before the SPLM general secretariat,” reads the petition.

Reorganising the youth league, the petitioners argue, will give the youth the opportunity to fully and effectively participate in the party’s much anticipated general convention.

The group, in their petition, also caution the party leadership against ignoring its youth wing, warning of unspecified repercussions in the near future.

Agel Ring Machar, a member from Warrap state acknowledged the signing of the petition.

“We cannot discuss sensitive party issues through the media. Let’s wait for the outcome of the petition which is now before the party leaders,” he said by phone.

Last month, the SPLM’s political bureau, in its first post-independence meeting, resolved to reorganise the SPLM structure and develop new strategic goals in the wake of the country’s independence from Khartoum in 2011.

Restructuring of the party, party officials told Sudan Tribune, will centre on developing road-maps and programmes earmarked for rebuilding the party from grass roots to the national levels.

The SPLM, which last held its party convention in 2008, is set to hold another in mid-2013, with the current restructuring widely anticipated to have huge implications on the party’s overall structure.

“We need to admit that the challenges are huge, but history has always proved that we can overcome them,” the party’s secretary told journalists last month, citing the implementation of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), the successful elections and referendum held in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

    Nguendeng is not a Prophet but the Profit! Because we have seen it in many places as Nyamnyam Nuer used it as mean of collecting money in foreign countries. Would you please stop begging in name of your Profit? You bring shame to Southerners in practically,you have been known already as food lovers. You must keep you’re gluttonous in you rather than selling our names through shameful carnival man.

      No need to be jealous Dinkawarrio. I have many fellows Dinka who are worshiping Nguendeng five time a day, which is even more than those of Muslim bothers who worship Mohamed four time a day. Belief me or wrong one of those fellows Dinka is a bother manyok from Bor-side. Shame on Rebel leader Dinka Dominant Corruption (Dinka Dominated SPLA/M)

        What is wrong with this idiotic called DinkaWarrior?. He always like to comment negatively against Nguendeng and it is not your traditinal prophet, is for Nuer people let it be Nuer to Ignore and don’t be feel jealious of it. Relatively, Nguendeng has got no affairs with any tribes across the South so you forget of being hatred to it for no reason.

      Plz,read before you comment, I have seen your comment which is nonsense because here no coonection or there is no reason to bring Ngundeng in this Article of reorganization of youth.
      There is a saying that stated: he who knows not that he knows not and he knows not is a fool shank him.
      PPle will just shank you because you don’t even know the main topic in the article.
      Otherwise, adjust yoursel

    A wise person who wants to make a comment on this article has two options only. Either yes for restructure of SPLM youth league or No. It is a shame to those who make comments before reading the article. Dinka warrior is a shame to SS intellectuals. Let him go to where there is fighting

    You are only a shame on this website warrior. The world is a civilized world of peace, which war are you boasting of here? You want to tell me that you have fought? What type of war have you fought? A true former freedom fighter does not talk negatively like you. You only know the cattle rustling wars

    Yes for SPLM youth league restructuring, Comrade Akol Paul has to quit because youth league is not his family legacy. We also want to teach our young boys how to be democrats rather than being power lovers

    Brothers and sisters, let us not tribalise all things in our country, what will u gain when there is lettle and pople are saying becuase of what is happening let us do ABC.

    Why do u people like to either make tribal politics when no body is benefiting apart from the few who claims to be the owners of our cuntry

    God brings that to the attention of youth to know that they have suffered most.

      Since the youth have known what our leadership is doing with few people in the name of youth and do things better to themselves and benefit of their failies let us now go a head and tell them point blank the cosquence of what they are doing is going to be bad in the Election.

      Do not always disturbed the Name, of Dink, Nuer, Equatoria, and all the tribes for individual gain and defense to loot.
