Juba Voter Registration: What are the main issues people register for?

November 24, 2009 (JUBA) – After spending three days in Juba during my visit to the capital of the semi-autonomous region, I took interest in taking part in the process of Voter Registration.

In blistering heat, which is the order of the day in Juba, people are going about their normal business and pedestrians are struggling to cross over the dusty roads, there are Voter registration posters in almost on every wall, gate or on the vehicles – "Register to Vote."

What is amazing that the Registration centers are not busy as expected, from Yambio to Juba the same shortcomings and complains is matching.

Renovations on the old Sudan offices in Juba are finishing, amid heavy presence of the International NGOs.

In Juba town, I drove passed the busy city Center via the dusty and rough roads being used by government officials who drive around in flashy new 4x4s, receiving envious glances from the less fortunate who are being urged to register in their thousands. The short visit took us to the Jimmy Carter Center main Juba Office, the only International Observer on the Ground and to a Registration centre at the Municipality of Munuki.

While at the Carter Centre, I asked the Deputy Director of the Carter Centre and few of the Carter Centre Observers.

The Carter Centre had issued a series of press statements questioning the conduction and organization of the voter registration, the bottle criticism was the issuance of accreditation of the observers and part agents.

According to the Jimmy Carter Center observer, Mr. Robert Brandstetter, "there have been enormous changes to the Center’s concerns; there has been substantial improvement to some of the poor logistical organization, which initial saw outcry from the public and the political parts nationwide."

Brandstetter says that given the fact that, this is Sudan’s first General Elections in 24 years, some of the shortcomings may not be a major concerns and the Jimmy Carter Center expects to make a full report at the Registration Process.

In our second stop, at Munuki Juba, visiting one of the registration centers, I met a very energetic community chief, Mr. Lado Lubanibani Lasu says, "happy to the ongoing preparatory exercise which will Southern Sudanese people to exercise their democratic rights more decades in civil War which crippled the development of oil-rich region."

According to Chief Lado, "the registration centers are very far from the people making it inaccessible to many special the women," adding that, "the key issue driving many people to register is the 2011 referendum, the presidential and legislator elections next year in April."

Chief Lado further remarked that, "Lack of safe drinking water, electrification of the city and paved roads will decide the Sudanese Elections come 2010."

Next to the registration officer sat a police woman, watching me on the interview with the area chief, according to her, “there is been marvelous security, since the Munuki center started there has never any trouble or intimidation.”

Ms. Kabang Jenty in the queue to register looking tired and exhausted as she had traveled to the center from a far Distance, she says that, "I am happy to register, because I feel it is my right to change the leadership, I will be voting to depict the women participation and my votes will go to both male and female candidates willing to foster the provision of good hospitals and standard education."

At a nearby secondary School studies James Enosa Mathias, he has registered, he says, what pains him is the condition and lack of professionalism in his school, teachers always spend four months before getting their dues, this phenomena is reducing the standard of education to zero, yet many of the [our] leaders send their kids to East Africa and western World for better education, Enosa says "this can be stopped unless if he votes next year."

Amungi Samuel is the registration officer for Munuki Centre he says, "Each day 200 people do register, mainly in the morning hours."

Samuel cites lack of necessary support from the National Election Commission (NEC), "the delay of salary is disrupting my concentration though I am serving the country diligently."

He appealed to the NEC to improve on these shortcomings.

The Euphoria for the Sudanese Elections shall be realized next year.

The state of the economy is the biggest problem agitating Sudanese people to register as voters. Referendum is another major issue, and one on which the National Congress and SPLM parties are divided – The CPA pledged to the coming elections to the Sudanese people, while the elections foresee a gradual transformation of democratic and stabilized Sudan.

Concerned by rising basic commodities prices, many people are urging for a reduction in South Sudan dependence on imported items from neighboring countries like, Kenya, Uganda and DRC, but there are differences in emphasis. The Sudanese government in Khartoum is keen on drilling new oil wells off the Nile coast and trade with Arab World and China, while South Sudan favours higher trade efficiency with East Africa.

Healthcare, basic education and developmental infrastructure services remain an important issue for many voters. South Sudanese people particularly want to see more people covered by affordable health services.

Social issues such as chronic tribal fighting, unemployment and cattle wrestling seem to be slightly less important.

In April 2010, Sudan is scheduled to hold its first democratic elections in 24 years. General elections are dictated by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, or CPA, which ended a second civil conflict between northern and southern Sudan that lasted two decades that killed over two million people, and displaced 4 million more. The original premise and promise of elections-democratic transformation, consolidating the peace, and making unity attractive-have been marred by the dominant National Congress Party’s four-year pattern of obstructionism, which has stalled progress on the implementation of the CPA, and sapped good will between North and south.

However experts say the landscape in Sudan has changed in the four years since the CPA was signed and the United States and key actors have to adjust their expectations for the elections and recalibrate their strategy to revive CPA implementation to include the other parts of the country.

    Register for Lam Akol, he is our president of Sudan. Time for SPLA-DC to lead and make the dream peace of Sudan to happen. Don’t pay your attention on those posters even they almost stick one on my wall but i removed it just in second, because it is useless to campaign without knowing who is the candidate, but now i have confidence for Lam as our LOVED AFRICAN MAN

      The Issue is Leader, we need good leader or participative man, peace, security, economy, health faclities and free education. Lam will implement most of this, if you are unsure think about what u have seen in South since 2005 up to date. SPLA hyenas have done nothing since only lootering, now it is time for Loved African Man to lead and make it happen. If you see any of those posters just interpret it to DC because you know the differ between DC and visionless corrupt SPLA/M. I could stick SPLA-DC poster on my car but threat of insecurity.

        Monk Big-logic,

        It does not matter who will be a leader for Sudan but the most important issue is all about turning up for registration, leave alone Sudan but South Sudan how do you think your rebel Lam Akol will be leader without you being registered.
        Remember registration does not concern with Dinka, Nuer or whoever will be elected, it is all for the benefit of South Sudanese should you let that chance gets its own way then you shall remain slave or else become permanent refugees though you denied to have been in asylum .

      ... snippers are ready. I can wait to see Lam Akol coming to address Southern Sudanese crowd. Big silver bullet will penetrate his greedy heart dropping him dead. Lam has been declare enemy of the people of Southern Sudan since 1991. Back then, he wanted to killed Dinka people, now he wants to rule them! What a funny world?

      You will run crazy in the South,because what you alway tell is the Arab speech for remoting people to vote for unity as your uncle use to say in order to get enough money for Slavery.

      The reporter thought that people are voting for war, yes this could happen in some stage, but it may not because if it happen then dinka boy will assemble his family back to kakuma which is not quite interesting. It is good that u need to feel home in South Sudan not alienation in kakuma. Dinkas Boy, the reporter lives in Yambio he knows nothing about Juba city. A city under government of sick service no single traffic light and pedestrian crossing.

    Mr. Richard

    Thank you for the article.

    But the question always remain the same. Whom do we register to vote for? Juba?

    As educated man, you know that the voters are usually motivated by the candidates whom they entrust for the leadership not by the boxes or posters, Kiir scared to stand or hand over leadership to Dr. Riek to face Bashier in the coming election, then whom do you expect Southerners to vote for?

    Kiir thinks that, by hiding himself,there will be big registration turn out since those who like him and those who hate him were going to register in the name of SouthSudan according to his village advisors. But the truth is that, we need to see and know the candidate before submiting our names to the list otherwise most of us will rather remain independent which I don’t like it either, but Kiir forces us to become one.

    All we need is for Kiir to declare his candidacy or not for us to see whether the candidate is of my favour or not. This is democracy not totaltarian where everybody is force to vote for whoever is choosen, that means I have to make my mine between SPLM and other parties’ candidates.

    We need clearness.

    God bless

    The writer is alway peace lover.

      You people are sick. Do you really think there will be election in Sudan or in Southern Sudan? All these new parties in South Sudan now want to participate in Southern Sudan election while they were fighting SPLM along with Arab. During the war, it was only the SPLM/A who stood against the Arab. Where were the other parties? Obviously, they are in Khartoum being used by the Arab to fight the SPLM/A and now that there is peace, they want to claim the leaderhip of Southern Sudan. Well, they will have to take arms to fight the SPLM/A because the SPLM/A came to power fighting the Arab. I guarantee that the SPLM led by honorable memeber not Riek or Lam will rule Southern Sudan for the next 100 years.

        Don’t you know that food is always cooked by one but eaten by many. Those who form parties right now were part of SPLA but due to the current weakness and poor formance they have decided to break out.

          Mr Logic boy,

          Your comment is part of cowardic act in the South dear.
          Why do you wait others to cook you food while you have hands and legs?.

          Alazy and fearful person always wait for the outcome but not in the exchange.
          Please if you are not in the street,then monitor your class discussions.

          The participants in the claassroom,s disscussion are hard to fail the class trust me bro.
          If you participate in everything you are remembered in the history like how professors remember their participants in his classrooms.

          That is how SPLM was, you guys and the Parties must know that SPLM is the Backborn in the South for ever.
          SPLM is the participants and the rest who keep quite and wait for the outcome from SPLM will loss misereably no matter what or how the claim their wishes.

          Mr Logic boy, waiting for outcome is part of cpwardic act.
          Thanks

          To James, logic,richard the reporter and the likes. you guys, are all agents of arabs.if it were not so, you would have not forgotten the arabs that have enslaved the Southerners or Blacks for centuries and put the SPLM your first enemy moreover the SPLM is trying it best to deliver you fools.Lam that you fools are talking about, do you know his motive of forming this party? late me tell you Lam is not fighting for the interest of anybody in the South but for his personal. if you think that I am lying then asked those whom recently defected from his party. and in conjunction the 1990s Khartoum Agreement what have he done to show that he was fighting for Southerners’ right after his defection from SPLA/M? Finally have patience, this is not time for power struggle in the South. if you are yearning for power, then wait unti when 2011 pass then you can come up.

        Dear Brother Mathonbor,

        Great comments.
        Where were those Parties during the struggle?.
        Where were coward during the struggle?
        Where were food lovers during the fight?
        They were with Arab licking Bashier ass.

        We know coward in the South. Trust me brothers and sisters, if the war occur everybody will run to Khartoum except Dinka who can stand firm in his feet.
        We stand in feet as usual.

        Brother Christopher Loro,

        You asked a good question. The SPLM/A is not interesting to nominate a candidate to run for Sudan presidency against Bashir because the south is going to secede in 2011. More importantly, there will be no changes in the government of national unity after April elections. Currently, the SPLM does not have anybody that can ran and win the presidency of Sudan. Kiir has no chances of winning the presidency of Sudan. He knows this very well and that is why he does not want to declare his candidance for the highest office in Sudan.

        The only person from the SPLM that could have win the presidency seat was the late Dr. Garang. Dr. Garang was very popular in the whole Sudan and therefore he could have win the next presidential race in Sudan. No matter who we can nominate to run for the presidency in the SPLM ticket, the SPLM can not win the presidency of Sudan in April elections.Omer Bashir by all means will still be the president of Sudan. Why bother to waste time for something you know you can not win. However, the SPLM without any doubt will still be running the GOSS after April elections.

        As far as the presidency of GOSS concern, to the best of my ability I can a sure you that Kiir will still be the next president of the GOSS. Nobody from the SPLM will challenge him and therefore by default he is the candidate for the GOSS presidency in April elections. Lam Akol has no chances of winning the presidency of the GOSS. He can nominate himself in Khartoum but he will never come to South Sudan to declare his presidency. Riek Machar has no creditability among southerners and he will never in his life be the president of GOSS. Even if Kiir dies today, the SPLM will elect somebody else for the chairmanship seat not Riek Machar. If it is a must that the next SPLM chairman has to be a Nuer then it will be more likely that the SPLM will nominate Governor Taban Deng not Riek Machar. Majority of Nuer people are with Governor Taban Deng. Riek and Matip have no much support from Nuer nowadays. Only those who want employement are the one backing them up. Also Paulino Matip has been marginalized since the day of the signing of CPA.

        Peace

    We will be present during the next struggle, the reason was that many of the Southerners didn’t like Dinka tribalism in SPLA.

    Now we will be there.

      Hey Ruati, you try to critize the GOSS but your point doesn’t make sense. GOSS try its best to make better live to Southern Sudanese people but the kind of people like you have lack of support to their own government. you always support your enemy more than you support yourself.

      You talk about dust in Juba while the govrnment has only four years. You people have lack of imagnation. Let me compare Khartoum and Juba. In 1983 the Khartoum was dust but no Norterners critize the government as you did. From Kober to Hi Yousef, from wat hazab to Kalakal till jebel Awelia and many parts of Khartoum was dust. I think you know very well the independent of Sudan. Why Khartoum takes many years with dust?

      Why are you surprise if you see dust in Juba while the government still has only four years? Are you send by NCP who has a role in the South to cause the tension between government and its citizen? Please if NCP give you money, just fill your stomach and don’t talk bout Southern Sudan.

      The South will be much better than North. No doubt about that. Southern Sudanese are hard workers. Northerners know it very well that is why they pay you to sabotage GOSS its creditability because there jealous when they see development going effectively in the South.

      What do you think will happen to Dinkas during the next struggle. You are full of hate against Dinkas but there is nothing you will do to them. Dinkas were majority during the struggle, a lot of high ranking officers in the SPLA now are Dinkas and the vast majority of the SPLA soldiers are Dinkas. Forget about the fake claim that Paulino Matip has more soldiers now than the real SPLA. It does not make any different because SPLA defeated both SAF along with Matip Militia in battlefield during the war.

      During the next struggle, Dinkas will still dominate the army and therefore will lead the struggle to free southerners. Whether you join now or wait for the next struggle, Dinkas are and will still be there dominating. That is the fact, live with it or join the SAF and the SPLA will defeat you. Ask Riek Machar or Paulino Matip abuot the spirit fighting of the SPLA forces led by Dinka. If the SPLM/A was not defeated back in 1991-1994 when Riek and Lam defacted and joined SAF against the SPLA then forget about the defeat of it. Whether being led by Dr. Garang or anybody else, the SPLA defeated all the enemies of Southern Sudan including Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Paulino Matip, Clement Wani, Ismail Konya and of course the Arabs.

      The next struggle will be painful to the enemies of Southern Sudan. The Southerners are now more united then before. Most importantly,vast majority of Southerners nowadys are educated and that brings more understanding among us. Who ever thinks about jeopardizing the freedom of Southerners will not be forgiven this time like what Dr. Garang did to those enemies of Southern Sudan when he forgave them and welcomed them back to the movement.

    Sorry and Sorry indeed.

    I would like to inform the General public that Equatorians have proved themselves day as slaves and they will remain as.

    A reasonable, fair-minded and informed person can not ask such silly question.Equatorains are actually food lovers and they will remain like that for ever and ever.

    Those who normally talk against Dinkas are 0% right and they are going to be.If you don,t fear a man from Dinka then you will get into hot water. Ask me why and why?

    Who knows the reason why most of the writers always talk about Capital D mother of B square? It’s because of our wisdom and strength,Dinkas are very wise enough and strong.We don,t disturb people but when you make a mistake toward a Dinkas’ man,then you may face the music.

    We are peaceful like nothing compare with,but we are also good in and in.

    I am proud of being born as a Dinka and I have to follow the channel of my grandparents.We fear nobody except the one in Heaven.Who are you to threat us in this World?

    A time will come for those Equatorians to wish to be Dinkas’s born.Anyway,we can not and we can.

      Come on Southerners!

      Just be confident once you think you are on the right tracts. We know whom we are going to vote for and why ? All may not be peaceful, but then this is just going to be one of the several Elections yet to be held in the African Continent. Whether we pretend to be what ? or show out our real selves, very soon we will all be expressing what we have at heart.

      As for the coward assassins, they should not be surprised that many times the magic has turned against the Magician.

      The struggle continues and the psychological bit being portrayed on this website is definitely being taken into account and rather seriously.

      South Sudan will never be allowed to degenerate into a failed and corrupt tribal dynasty.Those who will vote with their lives for the sake of the common good will continue to add dignified pages into our history books.

      Forward ever, backward never! Long live a free humanity !

                If you keep yourself ignorant,not trying even to learn the language of your enemy,how you gonna know and understand them,inorder to revisit your patriotic tactics to reveal their hidden plots against our people in South Sudan..
