November 29, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s vice-president, Riek Machar, on Thursday urged the leaderships of the state governments to prepare the ground for the upcoming conference on national reconciliation and healing among the communities and leaders in South Sudan.

Leaders of SPLM join their hands following successful reconciliation between John Garang and Salva Kiir in Rumbek, Dec. 1, 2004 (ST)

According to the vice-president’s press secretary, James Gatdet Dak, he said Machar reiterated the need for the national reconciliation during a meeting with governors and speakers of the state assemblies on the sideline of the post-independence 2nd Governors’ Forum at the Freedom Hall in Juba on Thursday.

The vice-president briefed the state leaders about the initiative by the government to make the nation reconcile with its past, adding that the bitterness should not be allowed to carry on to the next generation.

Machar blamed the situation on the decades of war with the present Sudan and its resulting internal conflicts within South Sudan, saying such conflicts caused mental and physical barriers among the communities.

This, he said, has also affected the inter-marriages between tribes which used to be a practice by the older generation.

Machar recalled a sample research he made during his visits to Lakes state during which nobody from the younger generation including youth in the cattle camps told him he got married to a Nuer girl. Only people from the older generation of the Dinka tribe of about 50 years of age said they got married to Nuer ladies.

When he asked why the youth didn’t get married to Nuer girls, the young men replied that during the war there were no more inter-communal meeting points of youth across the communal borders where young men across could have a chance to court girls from the other side since communities became rivals and enemies, they told Machar.

Machar further recalled that during those good old days a Nuer or Dinka man would fluently speak and even sing songs in the other’s language in the process of courting the girls.

"We need to break this barrier," Machar told the state leaders.

Leaders in South Sudan are known for their reconciling spirit after political differences. Examples include the reconciliation between Machar and the late leader, John Garang, in 2002 in Nairobi, which resulted to the merger of their forces after the 1991 political split.

Another successful reconciliation was between the late leader John Garang and the current president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, in Rumbek in November 2004, when a conflict emerged between the two over the running of the movement.

Machar told the state leaders that the current barriers caused by the lingering wars in minds even after independence was attained should be addressed and overcome, urging them to prepare the ground for the reconciliation.

The Office of the President through the Presidential advisor for decentralization, Tor Deng Mawien, will organize the upcoming April 2013 conference and its subsequent campaigns in the states. It will also establish the necessary communications with all the stakeholders at all levels of government.

A renowned international organization, the Initiative of Change, which is known for intervening in such reconciliation processes around the world, will also participate in the similar process in South Sudan. The vice-president of the Initiative of Change, Edward Peter, an Australian-born British, was present with his team during the Thursday meeting in Juba.

Edward in his remarks during the meeting expressed his organization’s readiness to assist in the reconciliation process in the country, which will bring on board famous international personalities including the South African Archbishop, Desmond Tutu.

    I would love to see the day when all South Sudanese would see themselves as brothers and sisters and forget about tribal differences and respect their leaders for what they do best for the welfare of this nation. Thanks Dr. Machar for your quest for reconciliation among our people.

      Thanks You Dr. Holocaust for the words! It’s always a good idea to have peace among our people but some time it turn to be a great disappointment!You may ask why? Is because they respect what they said.For example, "Say no to Corruption" was created by those hypocrites leaders but now they’re the ones who break that rules.Is it not shameful? In order for us to reconcile,you must return the money.

          You’re trying your best to be Self-Defense Defense of Dr. Holocaust Machar but one day/one time you will be droping out. If he die today or going to court, I believed there will be nobody ever to escate him to hell. Eat whatever he give you but keep your own dignity alive. Not only Dinka but also Nuer figures were killed by Riak, those of Peter Panom Ganypiny with his all relatives and friends.

So don’t waste your time by defending the Murderer while you have no clue about him. That Video alone will take him to Court without any body. Give him a chance to cry so that we can forgive him!

              Reconciliation ? yes we welcome it, but has our current interaction suggest that we have abandoned generating hate,vilifying others,denying the truth/propagating lies,advancing policies of exclusivity and genocidal intents on other minor tribes like Murle ? lets be honest to ourselves and expose the truth and bury the hatchet.forgiveness doesn’t come under atmosphere of lying and insincerity..

              Who cares about your fake video tape anyway. All South Sudanese communities died in millions during the war. It is amazing that you talk like if you represent the opinion of every South Sudanese. We the rest of South Sudanese love Dr. Riek Machar dearly and can vote for him in 2015. Join us in the reconciliation so that you relieve your trauma...

        ..yes some bigger tribes tackle arabs tribes head on, but the other tribes gave their SPLA forces food in all corners of our country, besides, they hosted their peoples displaced cousins from the other states by war. So in S Sudan, & So in our country, we have all fought for our Country’s South Sudan indedepence. But we, the Sudanese country, had been hijiak by arabs & Europeans notably the UK’s.

Southerners have the right to vilify SPLM/A for human rights violations but we have to remind ourselves that Dr. Riek was not a better devil.

    Nuer raids/invasions always resulted in the capture of substantial numbers of young women and children. Captives taken by the Nuer always includes boys, girls, and young women of Marriageable age, but the captives always outnumber the casualties inflicted on Dinka, Anyuak, Burun… by the Nuer Warriors.
