Akot Deng Ngongdit – South Sudan legitimately attained her independence from Sudan in July/09/2011, but the hard-won celebration was short-lived, and entered into the arena of conflict at her age of two (2) years. The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), the ruling political party that originally led the way for independence, is now divided and fighting for power.

In December 15/2013, two (2) years after independence, the political infighting grew horns within the SPLM party and erupted into violence in the streets of the capital city, Juba, after South Sudan president Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit and the vice president Dr. Riek Machar politically disagreed.

Combating between the two cabals of government forces true-hearted to each speedily shifted to Bor, Bentiu and then to the entire Upper Nile Region and later extended to Bhar El Ghazal region. Thereafter, the war engulfed the country. That’s how current crisis started itself.

It’s turned to be intertribal conflict, but the naked fact is that, it’s started as political disagreement. Meanwhile, civil populations experienced the living difficulty, ordinary citizens can’t afford food to the family while others are dying of overeating. The ongoing of violence and insecurity makes the living in South Sudan deteriorating. Everyone across the nation feels insecure as intercommunal/intertribal violence intensifying.

But civil populations the ruling political party subjected in suffering (starving) where the main logistics during Sudan people’s liberation movement (SPLM) 21 years of struggle.
