Avoid tribalism and hatred, cleric tells S. Sudanese


January 1, 2020 (JUBA) - The Archbishop of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan, Rev. Justin Badi Arama has urged South Sudanese to shun tribalism and hatred for peace and reconciliation to prevail in the new year.

Rev. Justin Badi Arama (Anglicannews.org)

“The old has passed and the new has come. This means our decision, actions must reflect the kingdom values of love, peace, forgiveness and reconciliation,” he said in a new year message.

The cleric urged citizens to hopeful that the current political instability and the economic challenges in the country will soon come to pass.

“Our prayer is for every South Sudanese to look at things in new ways and have renewed effort for hope, peace and stability,” he stressed.

Arama appealed to South Sudanese to pray for the country’s leaders and mediators involved in all efforts to achieve peace through the formation of a unity government.

South Sudan, which broke away from Sudan through a referendum in 2011, has been suffering from a civil war since December 2013, which took a tribal dimension.

In September last year, the country’s rival factions signed a revitalized peace deal to end the civil war that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

    These church leaders should instead speak up the bitter truth and confront Dinka gov’t officials/JCE included to shunt tribal politics,lootings and displacement of other people from their lands,NOT always rush to empty premature calling for forgiveness,reconciliation or any other crap from our oppressed citizens.Its first the leaders to demonstrate concrete actions on the ground and abandon.......

    • 2 January 11:06, by The Rhino

      ...their greed, recklessness and tribal drive, then others will follow suit.But until then,NO forgiveness,No reconciliation and NO forget to killers and murderers who rape young girls and destroy lives of innocent people.NO WAY!

      • 2 January 12:11, by conservative


        How about to replace kirir, and machar with another Dinka guy is that okay?

        • 2 January 14:01, by The Rhino


          First learn how to properly write other people’s names before jumping into making foolish suggestions about replacements or some nonsense.Replacing a foolish Dinka ’president’ with another foolish idiot doesn’t/wouldn’t make any sense.You can practice those shit in your Dinka areas but NOT in Equatoria or other region in South Sudan,understood?,..good!

      • 2 January 19:55, by jubaone

        This worthless Archbishop is nothing but a son of a jienge and some Equatorian woman. Where was this half-jienge bastard when his folk unleashed terror on innocent Equatorians, Nuers, Fertit, Collos etc? Why didnt he stand with the victims to now open his ugly mouth for reconciliation? This junk bishop is one of those who smiled while watching jienge bastards rape our women. Death to him.

      The Rhino,

      You are too stupid to understand peace message from anyone. Stupid of the stupidest like you should be left alone. 2 years program you studied in Egypt was designed for students with learning disability. your inability to learn like others will keep you down until you die, wicked and monkey.

          The Rhino,
          Shit, these are the things your uncle Cirillo is doing right now in South Sudan, raping, killing, kidnapping, stealing and destroying villages. Your inability to understand simple things will not help you to make good argument. People of Equatoria love our government in Juba.

            South South,

            Raping,killings,kidnappings,theft and destructions are Dinka’s renowned attributes and identification in South Sudan,this is well documented by expertise on the ground.That’s why reasonable people took up arms to fight your tribal gov’t and defend themselves from your terror.Don’t sit there and twist facts.Speaking of forced marriages and savagery,a young girl was recently brutally..

                Dont waste your precious time and energies on this jienge baboon "South South". Raping, revenge killings, reckless fornication, theft and all satanic vices are inborn in them. South South is lucky that he dashed to Kenya and hiding his shithole there, whilst his fellow jienge baboons and giant gorillas hack themselves to death.

      • 2 January 19:50, by jubaone

        South South
        You 46yr old bush gorilla, you even dont have a degree let alone systematically studied anywhere in a reputed university. You dull jienge dunderheads can only buy degrees from private universities like pieces of cheap vegetables in konyokonyo market. From president to water carriesr, all just a bunch of idiots. What a foolish majority without worth. Shut up, jienge.

        • 2 January 21:34, by South South


          I don’t need shit called degree. I have AK-47, I have an army, and I have my country in my hand. I rule, the end. Shit things called degree, PhD, and B.A are all shit, they don’t sit well with me.

            South South,

            Damn it, the irony here is, an idiot of your type might have never in his fucking life carried a ’caliber’ in his hands let alone a Kalaschnikow device and listened to its music in the middle of it.Of course you might have seen one of your uncles carry it around in your Dinka villages but that does not necessarily mean that troll "South South" can fight,No!If you Dinka people can....

            • 2 January 23:21, by The Rhino

              South South,

              ..really fight real wars, the war in South Sudan could have been over by now.But realities on the ground are different.The real warriors are absolutely NOT the Dinka,but those mean silent guys who Dinka always think they can automatically neglect or oppress.I have some grime news for you Dinka pisser,..nothing will be the same come February 22nd!As comrade Jubaone has already said...

              • 2 January 23:32, by The Rhino

                South South,

                ..our NAS and IO Equatorian fighters must highly stay vigilant and never let themselves all get lured and drawn into these bogus ’unified training centers’ in the name of the fake peace,NO!Dinka tribal forces to date are still occupying civilian’s facilities/houses..WHY?Shit,the saying goes,..one leg in,one leg out,in case things go wrong,you still stand tall and proud.This message..

                • 2 January 23:43, by The Rhino

                  South South,

                  ..goes out especially to our Equatorian IO fighters, be very cautious about Riak Machar’s plans on you.According to credible leaks,Machar and Kiir might be playing some dirty games around these days only to save their damned asses.Diehard Nuer fighters must also remember Dec.2013 massacre and never let themselves get played around by Riak for some wicked political gains..careful!

    • 2 January 19:59, by jubaone

      No reconciliation, No forgiveness and No mercy until all these jienge misfits and satan´s bastards are expelled out of Equatoria, whether in 1, 5, 10, 40, 100 yrs. It is them or us. Period. I urge all Equatorians in IO to mobilize and be ready for war after February 2020. We shall win, cuz Equatoria is our ancestral land. Jienges have NO FUCKING business in Equatoria.

          The Rhino,
          With that kind brain you have, the Dinkas/Jenges of the Sudan would quickly crush you to the extinction path like *the Rhino*. Missing teeth isn’t anything idiot, by the way, all the Nilotic of the Sudan of ’rivers and lakes’ used to remove their ’six lower teeth’, the plain and highland Nilotes, used to remove ’two lower teeth’>>>

          • 3 January 05:18, by Pakuai

            these are aged old traditions, the Dinkas/Jenges also scarified their bodies, the Nuers also do, Mundaries do it and every body in the South Sudan do it. It just like how the Europeans ’tattooed themselves’ Nothing strange about scarification. Acholis like the Dinkas/Jenges used to remove their six lower teeth, the Luos of Kenya used to do the same>>>

There is nothing with going Europe, Italy, Spain, Malta and so on. But going to Europe and then go and cry foul about racism about black people isn’t very good to mastic people like the Dinkas/Jenges of the Sudan. The Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan don’t like to bully>>>
