The Warring South Sudanese Social Media Users Should Stop Their Cocks' Fight and Give Peace a chance

By Deng Kiir Akok

It's almost three years now since the war broke out in Juba on December 15, 2013 between the soldiers loyal to Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the republic of South Sudan and his former Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

The war started in Juba and moved to States. And to the saddest, it moved to social media that are operated in and outside the country. Most of these social media fighters are having their bases abroad. How the war is being successfully fought on social media? They fight in this useless way;

Nuer in Diaspora: " You Dinka in Juba, we have finished your Mathiang Anyoor, now we are on our way for Juba so we could crush you with your president."

Dinka in diaspora: " Why did you run away in 2013 and on July, 2016 with your rebels leader, Dr. Riek Machar? You come and you will get us here in Juba, you will face us."

Have you seen that? All these Nuer and Dinka in Diaspora are the one fighting this so-called social media war despite the last August peace agreement. They are fighting nonstop war. If one reason well here, one will find that these guys in diaspora are just inciting violence so as the citizens would confront each other.

If at all these social media fighters were having good minds, they would have used media to preach the peaceful coexistence of the tribes. But to the dismay of everyone, they use it to spread hatred for the tribes. While they are busy there in foreign countries earning dollars or whatever for their families.

Neither of them had finished Mathiang Anyoor or will defence Juba. What's not good and the burning issue is that they use Juba as their battle grounds when the good number of them don't know to locate Juba. Don't export us your meaningless fighting that will only leave hatred for our tribes. The fighters don't negotiate to settle their differences in social media.

This war is being fought outside the country though there're fighters in Juba and in the states. But the war has its battle grounds in South Sudan. These fighters fear for the unknown to use their real names and instead they use faked names. Maybe they use fake names to make it difficult for the authorities in identifying them with their unethical contents they post on social media. Sometime, they called themselves freedom fighters. These fighters post bad contents on social media to destroy South Sudan.

They are wasting their time and energy to write useless contents on social media assuming they are fighting for the regime change. These fighters are just fighting cocks' fights and will never move an inch for a feather laying on the ground let alone removing an elected president.

It would have been better if they have spent their time doing other necessary jobs rather than to write nonsenses. Unless these fighters are hired to do this job. If so, then they have no choice but to do this such useless job to earn their living.

But for them to fight well and get credit from their masters, they should use the right channels to get their thoughts straight to South Sudanese whether within or outside the country. There, they should consider putting their real names, city and the country they're writing. Prove me right or wrong, if a man dies for a reason, then he should die with his real name on his forehead not on his backhead.

In conclusion, I have dedicated these below two paragraphs to social media fighters and warlords' consumption.

Why do you want to fight for your freedom using wrong names? To my understanding, You don't mean to fight for your freedom as you claim. Because you are fearing for your names not to be known by everyone that reads contents you post in every minute on social media. What if you succeeded in your fighting, will you change your names or not?

I wish I was the one hiring you to fight in your social media war, I wouldn't give you even a coin for your job done. Because you are cowards and weak to fight this cocks' fight since you withhold your real names while posting contents on social media.
