October 18, 2010 (JUBA) – The Southern Sudan political parties conference in the region’s capital, Juba, have come out with a united voice and called for timely and transparent conduct of the region’s referendum on independence scheduled for January 9, 2011.

Leaders of 23 South Sudan political parties hold hands at referendum conference, in regions capital Juba, in sign of unity and reconciliation, 17 Oct. 2010 (James G Dak - ST)

On Sunday, the text of the conference’s resolutions, political parties code of conduct for the referendum and final communique were read out and signed by the leaders and representatives of all the 23 political parties which participated in the convention.

The signing ceremony took place in the presence of South Sudan President Salva Kiir, who is also the chairman of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

Two small political parties who were invited failed in sending their representatives to the conference. Southern Sudanese leaders who are members of northern political parties were also invited to the conference.

After the resolutions were read out by the minister of Legal Affairs and Constitutional Development, John Luk Jok, the Vice President and deputy chairman of the SPLM, Riek Machar, who was the chairman of the five-day conference, announced the passing of the resolutions amidst applause, ululations and music.

The gathering committed the parties to achieve reconciliation in the region and commended the decision made by Kiir to pardon all the officers and men in uniform who rebelled against the government before and after April elections.

Kiir has urged them to abandon their rebellion and rejoin the army.

Maj Gen Gabriel Tanginye and Maj Gen Mabor Dhol have taken up Kiir’s call for southern unity ahead of the referendum and joined the SPLM, the former rebels who govern southern Sudan, last week.

Gen George Athor has reportedly responded positively to Kiir’s overtures but did not attend the conference, but sent a delegation to represent him at the closing ceremony of the conference on Sunday.

The conference resolved that if the south voted for untity the region would participate in the Sudan’s constitutional review.

“In the event of a decision of the people of Southern Sudan in the referendum becoming unity, the South [shall] be prepared to effectively participate in the constitutional review process that will follow the referendum in order to safeguard the gains of the South in the new dispensation in the country,” the resolution reads.

If the south votes for separation, then the conference resolved that Southern Sudan’s government would establish a national constitutional review commission to review the current interim constitution of Southern Sudan for adoption by the Southern Sudan Legislative Assembly (SSLA) as a transitional constitution.

The parties also decided that an all-party constitutional conference would be convened, in the event of secession, to deliberate and adopt a new constitutional system of an independent and sovereign state.

The purpose of this constitutional conference would be to agree on the formation of an interim broad-based transitional government under the President of the Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), Salva Kiir.

The transitional government shall be charged, among other things, with the duty to conduct fresh population census and general elections for a constituent assembly to vote the transitional constitution into being.

The constitutional conference would also decide on the length of the interim period, necessary to carry out general elections for constituent assembly.

In order to ensure effective implementation of the conference resolutions, a Leadership Consultative Forum was formed under the GoSS President with members from all 23 political parties at the conference.

The chairman of the conference, Riek Machar, on Monday announced that another leadership forum meeting will take place before the conduct of the referendum and another one after the conduct of the referendum.

The conference also stressed the importance of strengthening relations between northern and south Sudan in the event of secession.

President Kiir has said he is committed to implement of all the resolutions passed by the political parties’ conference.

The conference ended with leaders of the political parties taking a group picture as a sign of unity and reconciliation among the political forces.

On Sunday various speakers made closing remarks to the conference.

United Democratic Party - Peter Abdel Rahman Sule

Speaking at the closing ceremony at Nyakuron Cultural Center, Peter Abdel Rahman Sule, a leader of United Democratic Party said he never thought he would one day be granted the honor to address an all southern political parties’ conference, attended by “ legitimate leaders and activists”, on independence of the south Sudan.

“I am very much happy and pleased to openly speak before you today on the future of our people and the region, this is because I never thought I would one day address such a huge gathering on independence of South Sudan,” said Sule.

The veteran politician whose party advocates for separation of the region said the independence of the was “imminent”.

“We in the united Democratic Party remains committed to our principles which call for independence of the south from rest of the regions. We have advocated for this in reference to independence even at the time when it was difficult to speak about it and we never stopped talking about it until this peace was signed. It must be implemented to the letter”, he said.

“We must go, there is nothing which can stop us from going if we are determined as all signs indicate,” he said, reiterating that he was pleased to see the whole region speaking with “one voice.”

SPLM-DC - Lam Akol Ajawin

Lam Akol Ajawin, leader of Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement for Democratic Change (SPLM-DC) a breakaway group from the SPLM, commended conduct and high participation rate at the conference.

Akol’s, comments on the opening day of the conference called for amendment of the referendum law to postpone the referendum date from 9 of January 2011 to a date which would be recommended by the referendum commission.

But in his concluding statement Akol appeared to have sidelined his suggestion, pledging to work for independence of the region in the upcoming referendum vote.

“If there are people who still doubt that I will work against interest of the people of southern Sudan, they must know now it that our differences have been resolved by this conference,” he said

“Of course there are times in the past when all of us went out of control because of lack of regular dialogue,” said Akol amid waiving voices calling for independence of south Sudan.

The former Sudanese Foreign Minister called on political leaders to conduct similar reconciliation meetings throughout the south so that ordinary people were kept up-to–date with political developments and agreements.

“As our differences have been resolved by this conference, we must forget the past and open another chapter and begin to work together as block for common interest of our people and the region. It is when we work as block and not as individuals and parties that we can able to achieve common objective," said Akol.

“We must extend such initiatives on reconciliation and peace building to the grass root level. They must not be allowed to remain here. We must communicate them to our people by all means possible,” he said.

Akol also declared to the conference that political differences between him and president of the semi-autonomous regional government of southern Sudan, General Salva Kiir Mayardit, had been resolved.

“At personal level, I must tell you that I still do not hold political differences with our president anymore. We have resolved them,” said Akol.

Akol who in April fought a bitter election campaign against the SPLM described President Kiir as a brother.

“When president sent me an invitation, I readily responded to it because he is a brother whom we have done a lot of things together,” he said.

South Sudan Democractic Forum - Bona Malwal Madut Riing

Bona Malwal Madut Riing, an adviser to the president of the republic of Sudan, who spoke on behalf of an elderly people and long serving politicians also appeared resigned from being an ardent critic of the regional government of southern Sudan.

He said that his party, the South Sudan Democractic Forum had intentionally made deliberations difficult at the start of the conference because they wanted a meaningful debate.

“We made deliberations difficult because we had wanted them to be meaningful at the end of the conference,” said Malwal.

He said that the conference indicated that south Sudan was determined to separate from the north and become a new nation.

“Having been one of the participants from the initial day, I must admit that our people are fully prepared and determined to go come what may come,” said Malwal.

        I sincerely applauded the leaders of all-parties for putting aside their political differences and join hands together to unite our people of Southern Sudan as we are approaching the Upcoming Self-determination Referendum that will determine the future fate of our magnificently great country whether it will remains as a united country or the people of Southern will choose separate country. This requires a determined and united voices of the people of Southern Sudan.
        The all-parties Conference comes at a time when President Kiir pardon all the degenerated, of the degenerated thugs who have rebelled against the government of Southern Sudan to derail the full implementation of the hard-won 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
        In fact,these are destructive thugs, my man, Gatwech is very supporting of them.
        Gatwech, you have read it yourself that the people of Southern Sudan have put aside their political differences and join hands together for the greater good of our long-suffering, peace-loving and liberty-seeking people.
        My question to you is: Are you not going to stop writing your destructive comments about others?
        I hope you are going to do it this time.
        Indeed, you are matured enough to distinguish right from wrong.
        Folks, let not use Education as a tool of exploiting our people, but rather as a mean of improving their wretched way of life.
        In conclusion,Gatwech, this website is for public and you should always conduct yourself in a very proffessional way.
        May almighty God creator of Heaven and Earth bless the long-suffering people of Southern Sudan and guided them into a promised land of freedom, liberty, equality and social justice for all.
        SPLA Oyee. Victory to long-oppressed and abused our people in the Upcoming Self-determination Referendum.

        It is a great symbolic sign of unity. I hope it stick. I hope this unity is done to end the suffering of the innocent southern Sudan civilians who suffer the most the consequences of the political divisions of southern Sudan leaders.

        Let us now speed up the referendum activities or else we lose this golden chances. Register, educate, and have the multitiudes of southerners come out to cast their referendum ballots for absolute independence of South Sudan whose name must be changed from Southern Sudan to something esle so that we are not reminded of the old wounds of old Sudan.

      Hi everyone there;

      This is a great forward step achievement that we ever had in our region. And that’s why it is said that sharity begins at home. If we were to understand each other as this conference showed then there would be no personal differences as we had in the past.

      I personally appreciate the move taken by our leaders! there is now a hope in you and us as new generation to deliver south ahead.

      But once again;be careful not to be blindfolded and driven away from the right path when enemies of the south convens.

      Our unity is the strength as a southern symbol !!

      How many time and for how long will Dr. Akol be saying he has forgot the past?
      I remember two occasion he himself made the same statement back in 2004 in Nairobi and in a small village of Jonglei state. he again said in this conference that his differences with the President Kiir are resolved.

      Let me high light some few information and historical background of a man who called himself LAM AKOL:

      first he has problem with Sadiq el Mahdi, and he immediately join the SPLM in 1986, there is again felt in bitter relationship with Dr. Garang and he and Reik defected and formed the so-called SPLM-United within a short time he again differ with his friend Riek and they separate leaving him to go with his SPLM-United and Riek formed his new movement called SSIM. he again decided to quarrel on himself and defected to the north he was made a Minister but later due to his nature Lam fall in bitter agreement with Bashir aand he run back to the SPLM saying he will never go back to north. but what happen? Lam could not find peace in his own soul he again defected to the north and a claim of news party SPLM-DC. Now the same man said that his differences with Kiir/SPLM are resolved will this be true from the man who one time change several time from movement to movement and from Government to Government and from party to an other party.

        May that spirit of your memory be in place, what he is doing may not depend or demage Southern or Sudan.
        We know with him or without him Southern Sudan will stay strong as usuall let the rest who are not well known come up and we shall appreciate the unity of Southerners, I know we have more dangerious rebels among us we Southerners apart from Dr. Lam, we want them to clear themselves before these days.
        If so, may God bless the Unity of Southerners toward seperation.

          Hey Mr Mathiang Beny Til,

          I understand you my dear, but this Government of Southern Sudan is just like a baby being dressed by his mother while he is crying that he don’t want to be dressed. This is exactly what happening right now in Southern Sudan.

          On May 16, 1983 when the Late General Kerubino Kuany’nyin Bol Deng fired arms in the town of Jonglei, who in Southern Sudan can said that he never heard anything? My dear brother, Southern Sudan right now is under a big dilemma in which all the cowards people who were been hiding in hands of Arabs since the time of war came and pretended themselves that they are the host and most literate people who know the rules.
          What about those who were been fighting since in 1983 such as 104, 105, Muor muor batallion, Koryom, Kazuuk, Zalzal, Intithar, Intipather,Ingest and so forth? Were these people educated? If I’m not wrong, then 99% of these people where never gone to school, but they contributed their life for the future generations and right now some others people enjoyed the benefit of it while they were not present.

          This government under Salva Kiir Miyardit is the kind of Government I have never seen in my life. If you analyzed right now, you will find that majorities of the people who are now being employed by Salva Kiir Miyardit are all rebels who were been fight with the SPLA for long time. If you doubt about what I said to you is wrong, then write me back and I will give you some examples. My friend, no one who is happy about the way Southern Sudan Government is being governed. You tell me to avoid using tribalism. I don’t like tribalism, but when you saw the way Salva Kiir Miyardit officiate the Southern Sudan Government, there is a big tribalism there. Anyway, I will not go further.

    This conference is a sign of success and it shows the enemies of the south that people are ready and determine to create a space for political tranquility that may allows their kids to go to school in the south rather than neighbouring countries. We are tired of being refugees but it is good that our leaders realized that a few of them need leadership positions but many of us need a place to live.

    The question is; Would the representatives of the so-called South Sudan political parties still be loyal to SPLM, and the people of South Sudan in case, and God forbid, the North/South war resume again? I’m asking this question because most of our people, especially the anti-SPLM individuals or tribes or the so-called parties in the South have a bad culture of abandoning the SPLM and the masses in the South to struggle against our traditional enemies in the North, and latter shamelessly return when when the waves of heat slow down. The worse thing though about these individuals is their regular move of emerging with our enemies instead of them fleeing to seek for political asylum in niegbpring countries.

      Young Nation,

      This present SPLM leadership is very different from the previous dictatorial and thick brained leadership which encouraged divisions among the people of South. Remember that immediately after Salva Kiir and Riek Machar took over the SPLM leadership, more than 40,000 forces of Gen. Paulino Matip Nhial rejoined the SPLA.

      So, it really depends on the attitude of the SPLM/A. If they have a vision for unity of the people, then no body will leave them again.

        SPLM started dialoque with other armed group since the signing of CPA by then late leader Dr Garang if you could not recall. Don’t ever ever dwell much on Riek as an agent of change within the party because he has been there in and out but SPLM progressed. For Kiir took over from nobody because he has been deputy ever since. So, your comments are always tribalistic and divisive. Now southerners are one voice, forget your divisionism.

          Abuoi Jook,

          So you think yours and your peers comments are not tribalistic, ah. What an hypocrat!

          Tell me, who reconciled Dr. John Garang and Salva Kiir when they were at their necks in Rumbek in 2004 before the CPA. Was it not Dr. Riek Machar who chaired that conference and urged them to reunite?

          Was it not Dr. Riek Machar who convinced Salva Kiir to move from Yei to Rumbek and John Garang to move from Nairobi where he was hiding to Rumbek and reconcile with Salva Kiir in order to sign the CPA?

          You people will never settle until you change your tribal hearts that do not give credit to other leaders from different tribes no matter how better strategically are those leaders.

          Now Dr. Riek Machar’s able mind has made it possible for the conference to succeed. I commend Kiir for taking his advices this time. Abuoi Jook, let us join them in the South and work for the unity of our people instead of dwelling on your primitive jealousy based on foundation of your people’s traditional habit of lying.

          Dr. Riek Machar is a sweeping brain behind most of such possitive achievements starting with self-determination which he championed, Garang rejected, but now become the only hope of southerners. Please, when will you people stop wasting time on jealousy and denial of credits even when the whole world knows about all these facts. You will be seen as stupid tribalists if you don’t understand that.

            If you ask Riak Machar now, why he murdered those innocent souls? You will not get convincing answers. But we have forgiven him for all his sinful and wrongful acts.
            Please tell your murderous thug if we become independent in the Upcoming Self-determination Referendum your ass, Riak and many others who have murdered innocent will be behind bars.Trust me, this is going to happen.

And I hope this new political unification of the south is a serious unity we have ever wanted.

The will of the people must be obeyed, or else, we are all going to meet in hell.
      Thank to the SPLM, the party of the people that has been for the people and doing it best now to assure all the nations that the SPLM/SPLA never foght for something unjustifiable. The International community must be concerned now, or we are going to do this alone.

    The unity of the south political parties is a good sign of peace among the southerners now,and most of it the coming of Tangnyiya.If all the resolutions they came out with and implemented it as they have agree upon one can believe that southern political parties have united otherwise, there are still some fox among them we can not trust them all,tomorrow if they arrived Khartoum with National Criminal party they talk different things all together.

    Dear Southerners,

    I am so happy! This is the moment we all were waiting for. I have a deep believe that Southern UNITY will work for the progress of the South. We must work together. We’ve a lot of agenda to work on. I am sure that if this is taken up by real and concrete steps on the ground will lead to a prosperous future. We need trust-building concrete steps and full participation of all - with no exception. I pray that all signatories will honor the agreement. SPLA/M has the biggest role and sacrifice to make to our unity and prosperity.

    Right from now on, all the malpractices by ALL should stop and be replaced by sincerity, honesty, cooperation and togetherness in diversity. This is the road for peace and development we have been dreaming of for a very long time.

    All injustices must be undone once and for all.

    Long live South Sudan.

    Now, they trust had come alive, so whatevr, Southern Sudan plan would be leak out to benefit Northerners.

    So, this meetings would make Southern sudan independent now be achieved.

    I’m so glad to see to it that Southerners are now united for a common purpose.
    We have been indulged in bribery given by the Mundukurus we ended killing ourselves for more than 2 decades. It is important to forgo the Mundukuru’s bribery and have our own Nation. What we will get from our internal economy is 1million times than what we get now.

    Why would we sell our everlasting freedom to exploit our own resources to those who come from outside. Believe me our children will suffer the more after us if we stick with the north. Very much shameful to some of our political leaders who enjoy luxurious lives in Khartoum while millions of their own are being enslaved without education, medication, good shelter , freedom of expression etc, in their very eyes. Some even went ahead by killing their very own in other to maintain their status in Khartoum. You become a slave to killing agent, because your livelihood is threatened if you don’t murder your own poor southerners.

    It is now time that they have realized their ignorances because, the Mundukurus have no interest in you as well. After Mascaring your own people, they will be the last to be slaughtered. Come out of them now! It is time to be home and make a new foundation of a new Nation in the history of the World! This is a new discovery in the Arab world to be a mistery. Haven’t you seen that Gaddafi is lamenting already?

    South Sudan Oyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
    Separation Oyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! No more no less. We are going there.
    The Chairman for Referandum has no way to and no chance of RIGGING. He will help us ANNOUNCE SEPARATION!

    Mr. Peace Maker!

      This is a great move from Southern political parties to talk in one voice at this critical time. South Sudan must go by all mean necessary.

        Brother Kim Deng,

        It is a great historic moment that those converts who called for a slavery in a united Sudan have now joined the historic self-determination as first championed in 1991 Creeping Revolution. They may make noises trying to deny it because they are ashamed that the SPLM/A manifesto of 1983 was mistakenly calling for united socialist Sudan which they mistakenly again changed to united secular Sudan. Now they are for self-determination. Is it not time to welcome back to their senses these converts?

        Welcome to the true vision for the freedom of the people of South Sudan.

    You got it right Abuoi Jook. But, the worst part of this is that, these people Gatwech and his like are dead people talking and couldn’t listen. Their habit of trying to reap what they haven’t toiled for is meaningless and insulting to their culture. Useless!!! They defend a cause that nearly did away with South aspiration. Their self-aggrandizing of bringing self-determination is baloney and a laughing matter altogether.

    During the inception of SPLA/SPLM, it was stipulated in their manifesto that, the movement strove to liberate the whole Sudan and if that failed to materialize then Southerners will opt for secession. This is the exact phase we are in today. And these filthy and dirty traitors kept on asking people: And I quote: “If you are reminded of 1991 massacre what will you do”? Is this a rational question to ask?

    This is silly as it gets!!! This Gatwech is a lousy agent of Riek Machar. If he writes for himself he would have gotten warned of soiling Riek reputation but why Riek and the entire Nuer community allow this rowdy boy to brew conflict as such? He is sent public for a reason!!!!
    Gatwech, if Lam and Riek did defeat SPLA/SPLM in those days I don’t think Southerners would have reached this far. It is a fact. You got to believe it.

    NCP would have incorporated Riek’s army into Sudan army forces long time ago, and long gone would have been this self-determination you fake to be yours.

    Thanks to Dr John Garang and his team for defeating Riek’s split.

    Why don’t people like Gatwech puts aside this tribal looking and learn to appreciate the realities?

      You are born to make unnecessary noises. Your comment doesn’t make any sense at all. Do you make analysis of political events, or do you just criticize for the sake of criticism?

      Oh boy!

      Welldone people for the political’s parties conference resolution . It has apeared that all the parties agreed to the important independence of South Sudan, there fore we will throught away the differences between you senior politicans. We are alway doudt of you guys some of you are political prostitute ,they don’t sleeping in one bed ,most of you are still North Arabian Surpporters but my advies are that the land need you to die in your postion like John Garang. Also to Athor groups I said feel free man I think the numbers of people you have lost or killed were not more than what Raik machar and Lam Makol killed ,please come back to your people.

      Dear readers,

      It is a great historic moment that those converts who for their inferiority complex mentalitiy called for a slavery in a united Sudan have now joined the historic self-determination as first championed in 1991 Creeping Revolution.

      They may make noises trying to deny it and refuse to give credit to the champions like Dr. Riek Machar and Dr. Lam Akol simply because they are ashamed that the SPLM/A manifesto of 1983 was mistakenly calling for united socialist Sudan, which they mistakenly again changed to united secular Sudan.

      Now they are for self-determination. Is it not time to welcome these converts back after realizing the true vision of the people of South Sudan to form their own independence instead of calling for slavery under the north?

      Welcome to the true vision for the freedom of the people of South Sudan and blessed are the champions.

      Those jealous tribal offsprings may not like the truth to be told and decide to knash their teeth, and shout to the top of their lungs, but they should know that the truth as in the books will remain so for millions of years to come. They must learn to live with it!
