July 18, 2013 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s vice-president, Riek Machar, has reiterated his dream of seeing South Sudan becoming a prosperous and happy nation where development and services to the people are quantitatively and qualitatively achieved and delivered across the country.

Within the next ten years he said he would want the two-year old country to catch up with the rest of the world, particularly the developing African countries.

The vice-president was speaking at the closing session of the thee-day 6th Speakers’ Forum, Wednesday, which he chaired and moderated during which participants discussed the current huge challenges of governance the country has been facing.

The first gathering after independence was attended by the governors of the ten states, their speakers of the assemblies and ministers of parliamentary affairs. They deliberated on issues that bring about conflicts between the executive and legislature at various levels of government as well as between the national legislature and the states’ legislative assemblies.

The forum also discussed the general challenges in governance across the country.

The vice-president reiterated the commitment to decentralized system of governance and the need to empower the various levels and respect their constitutional jurisdictions, adding that the country might soon be moving towards a federal system.

Machar said there are however challenges that have been hampering efforts of service delivery and development among which corruption and insecurity rank the top.

Corruption he said was rampant in government contracts, tax collections, land sale and misuse of money meant for provision of services to the various institutions.

He reminded the gathering about the ongoing efforts by the legal instruments of government to bring the culprits to book.

"Our tax revenue collection basket has been leaking", he said, adding that he believed only one-tenth of the revenues collected from the country’s borders and internal trade reaches the government’s chest while the rest is pocketed by individuals.

Insecurity, he said, was also responsible for taking the chunk of the nation’s budget as provision of security takes priority in the budget allocations every year for the last eight years.

In normal circumstances, Machar said he would want construction of roads and electrification across the country to take the top priority followed by agriculture.

The country’s vice-president recently has been publicly expressing his dreams of South Sudan becoming the “African Tiger”, similar to the Asian Tigers such as Singapore, which surprised the world with rapid development to the level of the first world in a very short time.

He reminded that with the huge untapped various resources including the human resources and the preferable geographical location of South Sudan in the centre of Africa, the new nation can quickly rise up and become an economic hub in the continent.

Roads and electricity are important in order to move the rest of the development programs and services delivery, including making it possible to access areas of agriculture and livestock that can help diversify the economy.

With roads and electricity government projects and investors would flow to the country’s corners and villages, he said.

He warned that corruption and insecurity were serious matters that should be tackled head-on; adding investment capital is coward and can shy away from a country where there is corruption and insecurity.

On South Sudan’s rank as the 4th failed state, Machar said he was not acquainted with the criteria used to reach to this conclusion but suggested that the ranking was a challenge brought about by the weak institutions of governance.

            So your issue is you don’t want anyone criticizing Machar huh? Tell me which part of this universe inhabited by human and has no cattle? Please if you want to make an intellectual argument you might as well try hard to hide your egos and even an unnecessary puerile stereotyping. Machar was raise by a cattle-keeping parents, in fact his name Machar come from a color of cow...

That I suppose is the forward when anyone can freely expresses his/herself without being intimidated or bully about his/her original or current way of life. Cows are important trust me! I’ll be back.

              What are you talking about? Everyone is forgiven. Dr. Garang and Mr. Kiir betrayed Nyanya II to Ethiopian government and Ethiopian government arrested Nyanya II politicians handed them over to Dr. Garang and Kiir. Is that not a betrayer. Ehiopian Government joined forces with SPLA and attacked Nyanya II in Biel Pam in 1984. you all who blame Dr. Machar have devil and tribal spirit.

          You are a foreigner from Museveni’s family in Uganda. Don’t interfere in South Sudan’s affairs. I know Museveni hates Dr. Machar because he fears his vision in East Africa in the same way he feared Dr. John Garang. He wants to work with a weak and visionless person like Kiir so that he only shines in the Greater Lakes region. Shame on you. Kiir and Museveni keep some secret!!!

He has failed to do it because he calculated the consequences. Now he may not reach 2014 let alone 2015. Ask him about his political situation NOW!!!

Don’t talk nonsense regularly about Machar this and that when we all know that he’s a power-hungry wolf who is willing to compromise anything to the outside world in exchange of support he may get to help him conquer power in RSS.

    Nice pledges but they lack the effective implementation outline. How does RIEK MACHAR intends to make South Sudan the next African cheetah (since Tigers are not native to Africa)? It is all talks. If RIEK the opportunist had a better way to achieve what he wants to achieve, he would have share that vision with Kiir. Kiir wants a successful South Sudan, too.

      But he has nothing. What did he ever achieve? As you put it, Dr. Riek is an opportunist who harvest people dissatification for his own gain. When he nearly destroyed SPLA in 1991, he’s harvesting unhappy section where he dreamed of replacing John Garang.

        Riek Machar will NOT win against Kiir if it comes down to that in 2015. Now that is not asserting that Kiir is any better but Kiir is the lesser evil by a wide margin when compares to Riek.

    The world needs to know that Machar had advocated for self determination as opposed to Garang’s vision of united Sudan, this led to divisions within the movement that had dramatic turn of events in the 1990s. We South Sudanese have voted for seperation - earlier advocated for by Machar, the friends of South Sudan and I commend him for his tough stance against the misdoings of the SPLM led gov’t

      You can make up lies without showing slightest of shame, how pathetic is that? Self-determination and Machar don’t belong together. Riek split from the main stream SPLA/M was fuel by thirst for power, it was never about wanting self-determination as you people keep on insisting. Why did Riek initially name his splinter movement SPLA/M united only to be renamed few years later as ...

Coming to your other absurd claim that Riek brought the independence of the RSS.. come on, Riek signed his Agreement with Khartoum in 1997 and that agreement dissolved mysteriously as expected. How did he contribute anything to RSS in this very day by being an advisor to Bashier in Khartoum not even in Bentiu.

Dr. Riek didn’t create South Sudan self-determination nor did his 1997 surrendering ceremony to NiF has anything to do with achieving it.

Dr. Riak got a copy of that SPLM covention and ran to Khartoum. Like they say, it’s what you can achieve, not talk. John Garang got it, no doubt.
