May 21, 2014 - South Sudan have been losing human beings and fighting had been going on since December 2013 up to now, and the genesis of the crisis was the fight that broke out within the Republican Guards in Juba, where the number of those who got killed innocently goes beyond the description after the escalation of the fighting to States.

Nevertheless, no one is aware of the accurate number at the movement but some statistics had shown that thousands have been massacred in Juba, Malakal, Bor ,Mapel and Bentiu as well and both sides are not coming to their common senses to think about the important lives of the small population of South Sudan at this particular period of time.

However everyone is informed about strategy use by the number one criminal globally by the name of President AL-Bashir who is ruling North Sudanese for almost a decade and eventually in 2011, South Sudanese gained their Independence and moreover for the last 21 years they suffered and got killed in good numbers in the name of him President (AL-bashir) when Southern Sudanese by then were advocating for self-determination that have been accomplished through a peaceful, transparent and credible referendum. The question is, how can South Sudanese die at this stage against and they have a government they voted in to office? What a Nation is the Republic of South Sudan?

Hence, there has been lots of crimes and atrocities committed by both sides in the fighting, a lots of girls, women have been raped, tortured and other who denied rape were killed instantly. The atrocities committed in Juba by Kiir commanders need absolute penalty as well in a very special and analytical or competence court that exactly adjudicate good persecution and trail charges.

The number of people that have been lost in this senseless war is enough and therefore, there is need for rule of law, human rights issues and democratization processes to be upholding right now in the Republic of South Sudan. This is the right time now for the world and International Communities that are peace lovers to bring out a good mechanism to restore peace and harmony in South Sudan through peaceful resolutions.

Moreover, Sanctioning of individuals will not work but getting the genesis of the crisis is what will solve the current mess going on in the Republic of South Sudan.

Well; for those who do not think of the existence of the peaceful co-existence in South Sudan will complicates and continue doing atrocities and peace have been signed between the two rivals groups in the Ethiopian Capital Addis-Ababa on Friday 9th of May 2014, where regional and International observers were there witnessing.

The world should over sees, what is going on in the Republic of South Sudan by introducing monitoring and evaluation mechanism to the crisis, through identifying which side is attracting which side between the government forces and the rebels’ forces in South Sudan as well.

World and International Criminal Court (ICC) should right now begin to investigate and document who was behind the crisis or the people concern with the incident that erupted and killed almost half of the population in South Sudan
