Remembering the heros of the struggle

Today, South Sudan is remembering its martyrs in one of the most colourful occasions marking Martyrs Day.

The day is key because South Sudan remembers the day its leader and founder of the Sudan People Liberation Movement/Army, Vice President of the Republic of Sudan and President of the Government of Southern Sudan, died in a plane crash this fateful day five years ago.

It commemorates also all those who have fallen along the way to freedom. It is fitting that their memories are kept alive for generations to come, those who have given up their lives so that others may have it.

Happy Martyrs Day.

I hope you guys win the referendum - it makes no sense for the two halves of Sudan to stay together.

But don't confuse independence with freedom. You can have one without the other.

For example, Zimbabwe has independence but not freedom. Texas has freedom but not independence.

Once you get independence (and that is assuming the referendum results are not rigged), the hard work begins. Here in Britain, it is still work in progress.
