They have evil thoughts of toppling the government by force and allowing people to kill each other while their own families are living in comfortable places in neighboring and western countries. They have already stored millions of dollars in their personal accounts. Such heartless leaders deserve lifetime prison sentences and ICC court condemnation to end their short-sighted thoughts of forgetting innocent lives at the grassroots.

Most people are asking God to give such leaders peace of mind and thoughts of dignity so that they can at least comprehend the value of human lives. Some people believe God alone can resolve tribal differences and restore peace and stability among its people. Why is it for us to have no peaceful place of origin, no place to call sweet home? For how long will our people live in exile?
South Sudan is known as a land of opportunity and many resources, but we lack the capacity to live in peace and harmony. South Sudanese are still wandering around inside and outside the country, hoping and waiting to hear of an everlasting peace accord, brought through the promised outcome of negotiation.

We need to train and educate the people to embrace national dialogue and to have peaceful thoughts of coexisting among themselves. We must fight tribalism and individualism and restore unity and harmony within this newest nation. We must educate our people on the democracy and allow transformation to prevail at all levels. I do consider myself an agent to bring change and help in shedding a brighter light to end such brutality and mass killings among brothers and sisters of the same nation. Our people need lifetime guidance and protections from well-wishing individuals and volunteer workers.
The people need education to fight against illiteracy and poverty. We must educate our local people to distance themselves from those politicians who are planning to gain power through force and ethnic means. They should seek their right to rule at the ball ot box. From there I took British Airways to London and then proceeded to Kampala where I spent the first night in my motherland.
Lost Boys of Sudan
The following morning, I woke up thinking of Juba, the new capital city of South Sudan, the land on which a portion of my own blood dripped, as a child fleeing the cruelty of my own government. At the airport, those mixed feelings of happiness and sadness clouded my ability to concentrate on checkout and exit the airport without any trouble with airport personnel. I believe with all my heart that I have contributed more than enough for my country. I worked tirelessly during the referendum while abroad to ensure that the results and interests of our people are met.
Since the only thought in my mind was for us to develop the new nation, I did not hesitate to respect the law and paid the unjust fee. However that experience makes me fear that corruption is already settling in. Juba city is very crowded and at that particular time one could see the biggest gap between the poor and those who claim to be rich or upper class citizens. Some people were driving the most expensive cars that are even rare to see in the western countries. Juba is a diverse city where one can see all kind of people, of all races, religions and different cultural backgrounds.
Within Juba there is a wide variety of facilities and entertainments.
I was amazed to realize that Juba is the fastest growing city in the world. The country is developing very rapidly with unlimited opportunities for investment and cooperation. I did enjoy my trip to Juba except for the images of small children aged from 2 to 12 years old on the streets, begging and starving to death right under the eyes of corrupt leaders. Regardless of all these scary challenges, I do still call it a home that I belong to.

This book presents the struggles of Ayuel and Beny, which, in some measure, reflect the universal experiences of millions of others.
Despite Genocide, I See Hope for Sudan | Sojourners
My aim is to personalize the consequences of worldwide conflicts by showing how Ayuel, Beny and their friends dealt not only with the physical challenges, but also with the spiritual dimension of anger, revenge, faith and forgiveness. Wonder why all those people are headed to the riverbank. The two young men turned from the International Rescue Committee office where they were headed and quickened their steps toward the dry riverbed.
Miles of mud and straw huts dotted the vast plateau near the equator, home to orphaned children and a fewer number of intact families—80, in all. In this desolate place in Kenya, Africa, only a few scrub trees survived—much like the fading hopes of the forgotten inhabitants. Ayuel and Beny joined several people running toward the happening at the riverbank.
The sound of pounding feet—unaccompanied by voices—lent an eerie foreboding to the stillness. A breeze swirled dust in the warm morning air. Then, something else silhouetted against the emerging rays of sunlight. Beny saw it at the same time, and both young men stopped and stared. There, suspended from a high limb of the tallest tree on the bank, hung a body, limp like a dead bird. A flash of light, then another, recorded what had happened. Why do they have to do that? As the cameraman stepped back, two other workers from the International Rescue Committee came forward with a stepladder.
Who is it—this time? Ayuel whispered to another friend of his, who stood at the edge of the crowd. Ayuel, a sensitive young man with fine features, felt his mouth dry and his breath come in short jerks. And Dinka too, like me. He remembered the tall, quiet boy with the charming smile.
