“As your leader and the Patron for the National Dialogue, I am obliged to release this public statement to inform all our citizens and friends about the planned National Day of Prayers that’s going to be held on March 10th, 2017,” President Kiir said in a statement Broadcasted on the official (SSBC) TV and Radio and sent out to reporters on Wednesday.

The National Day of Prayer is an American tradition held every year when people of all faiths pray for the nation.

President Kiir said this event will be held in all the states capitals as a preparation for the commencement of the processes of National Dialogue, he announced in December 2016.

“Our time [...] is now ripe to turn to God and ask Him for forgiveness and blessings. We have not been that prefect and we need to submit ourselves to Almighty through prayers,” he said.

President Kiir announced National Dialogue that he said will be bottom-top approach – starting within the communities to the national level. He appointed a steering comment that will be sworn into office next week. But his critics say he should not be a patron to the process since he is a party to the violent conflict that has killed thousands of people and displaced at least two million others from their home.

In his message, President Kiir appealed for huge turnout “on that day to pray, repent and forgive each other for the problems that we might have committed against one another for the last four years.”

“It should be the day we all pray to God and ask Him for forgiveness so that we start a new chapter in our relations as citizens of this nation,” he added.

He also asked South Sudanese overseas to pray on March 10 for peace in the country “in the same spirit.”

    If you declare 10th of march as a national prayer day for forgiveness from God. Then Bible say, do not kill and do not steel. If you do, you will not be forgiven. Do you thing God will forgive you south Sudanese Leaders? Not sure only God knows. I pray God to forgive all South Sudanese innocents who are suffering in the hand of evil leader of South Sudan.

        This is blasphemy and ridicule to the victims of Kiir’s satanic plans. If you can’t forgive Riak why would people believe in your honesty? Do you even have a God? Going to church alone doesn’t make you a believer. Kiir al-kaffir an infidel in the true sense of the word.

      Eastern,

      Kiir as a person has done nothing wrong in South Sudan, but as a leader he accepts the responsibilities of anything going wrong in country. Kiir is a very brave man who gave up the best part of life for his country. In any situation, people ask for prayers before meetings start. Kiir is doing that right now. Give him your hands to bring peace to South Sudan rather than calling him names.

    I can only celebrate when you announce 10th of March as your resignation day that can be only where large number of people can turn out in big number and can ask for peace and forgiveness from God. Otherwise your national dialogue is meaningless to me and all south Sudanese in general.Make your Dinka national dialogue with Jieng Council of Evil.

      That’s a good move by President of the Republic of South Sudan. However, Dr John Garang de Mabior was able to keep the freedom fighters united from 1983-2005. The President succeeded Dr John Garang from 2005 to the present by keeping Junubin united for a purpose----to get their freedom at last on July 9, 2011 although the constant backstabber Riek Machar was forgiven & reinstated into his position

        Riek Machar has no relation with God because he goes to Church just to show his smiling face to congregation and ask them to pray for another chance of executing another coup attempt that will bring him one day to power. Unlike US vice presidents who believe in God and fear Him, Riek has always been taking advantage of forgiveness since 2002 when Dr John Garang forgave him for the sake of unity.

          But his ignorant operatives, supporters and sympathizers of the senseless war of Riek Machar are like the lost sheep of the biblical era. I have repeatedly commented on their propaganda effort aimed at garnering potential political and material support from the western countries, hoping that lobbying for support through propaganda is the right tool to achieve their destructive agenda of RSS

            Choice of words like---“we are warriors, we don’t want Dinka”---is always one of the biggest problems to retarded opportunists who desperately want to be considered as supporters of Riek Machar because dey like war and free money. They’re critical of National Dialogue initiative because they see it as a lost opportunity for getting fake military ranks and employment in high positions in government

              Riek Machar promised to pay them in US dollars donated on monthly basis by their supporters (in the Diaspora) who are struggling to pay their bill for survival in the western countries. The fundamental mindset is how the “hate speech” can be cultured and directed against one tribe (Dinka) to get political support from other South Sudanese who can be used to promote that hatred and tribal sentiment

Those who followed him found themselves defeated in the front lines and later…

He returned alone to the mainstream SPLA/M which he left and begged for forgiveness and Dr John Garang reminded him that “I can forgive you but history will never.”

                    When we write about who is Riek Machar as a politician (not as a person who has every right to lead so long as he has what it takes), those ignorant supporters pay no or little attention to learn about the political record of Riek Machar. They don’t want to question themselves “Why did Riek Machar rebel against de leadership of de popular movement in de first place & later failed & fled to Khartum

                      Nobody among his ignorant supporters wants to find out what kind of a politician in the likeness of Riek Machar so desperate to rebel, shift allegiance and use violence to take power at his own disposal during struggle and after independence of July 9, 2011 without waiting for election season to kick in and contest if President Salva Kiir Mayardit is not running or run as an independent candidate.

                        Since he has never been wise politically to wait and contest in the already scheduled parliamentary elections of 2015, he resorted again to using violence as he did in 1991 in the bush, hoping that he would win through his failed coup attempt of December 2013 to take over the democratically elected government of President Salva Kiir Mayardit.

                          Few reasonable Nuer objected to Riek’s tribal politics of always using ignorant Nuer for his self-interest. Most of them who were soldiers stationed in Bor and Bentiu under the command of Peter Gatdet and James Koang respectively, blindly joined the coup plotters to bring up Riek to the top national job, but later, President Salva Kiir said “Riek, are you serious? Wait a minute”

                            Reik Machar had no idea how he and his cohorts happened to flee South Sudan and found themselves living in his hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and began shuttling again as usual between Addis and Khartoum to prepare for another war which he’s now certainly losing. Khartoum has been, was and will still continue welcoming whoever steps on its door step seeking military support…

Khartoum knows perfectly well that any South Sudan militia warlord(s), like Johnson Olony of Agwelek militia group, is eager to prove their previous assertion right that “Junubin cannot govern themselves”. If that is the case, how do Kenyans, Ugandans, Rwandans or Tanzanians rule themselves? Do they get political directive from Khartoum? N

Will there be no another rebellion staged by Dinka or any tribe in South Sudan?

Either we continue with war to see who is likely to win or dialogue among ourselves to open a new window of opportunity to become politically matured enough to govern ourselves peacefully. The problem we have is, Riek Machar is not willing to dialogue because he knows pretty well dat he will lose when election season comes n is also fully aware dat he will not win this se

They gave up the best part of their life to liberate South Sudan. A person who eats monkeys, can he really has good education? No.

Since I am not a jienge, I have no problems with that, it is YOUR problem and that will not change anyway. I could only agree with you, if jienges controlled themselves to control others. But since they even cant, then this is no worry at all. They will remain MTNs, drifters and vagabonds, just uncontrollable.

All people of conscience just keep away. You dont have to look into a hungry crocodile’s mouth to see if it has teeth. This is simply a jienge tribal meeting. A forum to engage in luak politics, socialize and eat especially during such days of karanga.

Our fight against "these jienge squatters and drifters" must take any form; military confrontation, cyber attacks, clasdestine liquidation etc..It is "war time".

                          Please, come to the front line. Never waste your precious time supporting Riek’s rebellion. Do you see I write like a politician? No . I write the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. If you feel that we don’t see ourselves as united Junubin, contest in the upcoming election to change things around as election cycle always does, not unnecessary bloodshed.

Does Riek Machar or Lam Akol have any record of uniting Junubin apart from staging tribal rebellion, losing it, signing bogus KPA-1997 and stepping on Khartoum’s door?

There is no difference between them because they are based on tribal sentiments and political bigotry. The first one was directed against the same tribe Dinka. Sadly, Dinka Bor paid heavy price.

                                  The confusing idea introduced by Riek Machar that everybody must fight for his region is both tribal and regional because we Equatorians have many tribes and are never united in spirit since 1983 when Kokora and SPLA/M started. The same thing is in Upper Nile and Bahr El-Ghazal regions. We better start from both top-to-bottom-and-vice versa.

Do you know why even “white army” now has abandoned the tribal movement of Riek Machar because they are waking up. They saw what they have never seen in Bor when they attempted to capture it again from the gallant SPLA forces.

We were better united “only” when Arabs were oppressing us. You should know why the kind of unity Junubin demonstrated in the North or in Khartoum in particular is never reflected here in the RSS.

                                        Since 2005 President Salva Kiir has been struggling to promote unity among the 64 tribes and kept forgiving those who constantly changed allegiance and took up arms against the democratically elected government. Only few people from all walks of life are genuinely supporting him to build the kind of unity and South Sudan we aspired for. Unlike Riek, President Kiir knows who is who.

    When did Salva Kiir become a catechist, let alone a Reverend Priest/Pastor/Imam Sheik or Bishop to call for prayers. He rejected meeting Church leaders severally, who will now lead the prayers? The NLC 2013 meeting started with prayers and ended up with massacres. Targeted communities, stay out of reach, given uncontrolled troops, they will slaughter. I am going away from Juba that day!

    He is a victim of the tribalism as can be seen by him remaining the head Compound Manager of Kiir’s office. Regardless of closeness to Kiir, for one reason or another, he had never been given a Ministerial or Senior Managerial Position. The JCE will never allow their number one enemy-Equatoria to head.

    No matter what Salva Kiir Mayardit will stay in touch with the people who love peace and he’ll stab down from office in 2050 if war is continuing it is up to you if you want to pray or not, but you must know Salva Kiir Mayardit is not a tribalism man who call for war in SS, he did call on anybody to go to the Bush administration, but Reik Machar did

      I meant he didn’t call on anybody to go to the Bush administration, also Salva Kiir didn’t call dinka tribe to go fight Nuers of Reik Machar, but Nuers of Reik Machar are the one who’s call dinka to go fight them. And SPLM-IG are only defending the construction of the land not Salva Kiir or dinka, but Nuers of Reik Machar are only defending Reik Machar.
