It is better than never. At last VP Salva Kiir got the guts to confront President Bashir about the slow progress in the implementation of the CPA.
During the ceremony in Juba marking the 2nd anniversary of the signing of the CPA, Kiir said all is not right. However, Bashir lashed out angrily and blamed the members of the SPLM for not taking their positions in government.
Now who should take the blame? This confrontation is long overdue. It should have happen long time ago. I would say both sides are dragging their feet.
Many observers are certain that Khartoum government is putting obstacles in the process of implementation. Little actions that seems insignificant but are huge. Let me us my president: why are there still militias in Sudan? why has he rejected the report of the Abyei border commision? why are SAF forces still in most parts of South Sudan?
SPLM should also take some of the blame for not raising all the issues that has to do with the CPA. I still couldn't remember the last time VP Kiir addressed the people of South Sudan on the progress. He surrounded himself with lots of incompetent people whose sole aims were to amass wealth for themselves through corruption.
There are people in the government who would never have made had Garang been around. They are destroying the prestine dream he had for the south. Two years down the road infrastructure is still lacking; schools without teachers and benches; major towns without electricity; insecurity rampant. Who do we blame for all these woes?
If only Dr John Garang de Mabior were around, none of these would have happened. I salute those who continue to hold the ideals and values he fought and died for.
