Our president Salva Kiir launched an attack on it but still growing like crazy. Come on citizens this must be a wake up call for everyone to act. South Sudan must be recovering from Mr. Corruption. Whether be that akumadit or akumathii, we are are to come out clean!
How will we defeat it? First of all, gut fighting is unseen. Corruption indeed something hidden in the guts, it is all about being greedy. Some of us wanted to be rich in one day which hasn't happened in the history of richness. This must end just like our leaders say.
Part of the problem: a country that is built up with so many divisions will find it hard to find the authentication codes of working together. Nepotism as another factor. Let's give ourselves rounds of applaud for working as a one people under that mess. We are to be proud that we are coming out of this very strong.
Next few months or so, we will embark on the development of South Sudan. This can not be done by one person, two, three, but more millions of literate who are specialized in their fields. Giving a job to someone who doesn't fit automatically means stopping the system. I don't care whether she/he is a sister, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle both paternal and maternal sides. What count best is doing the right thing.
The main objective is not to stop the system, kill it, slow it down or something, otherwise, wake it live in the minds of those who will take it on to the next level. There must be a change to follow. "Change has blown a whistle and we the people have to line up going forward."
Are we ready for the change? Can we rally behind the big force of getting together and move from the darkest era into a brighter future? Your reactions please is the answer to vanquish Mr. Corruption!
We are not the only country being threatened by Mr. Corruption, some parts in the world are swallowed by greediness. This is the time to tell those actions which put us in the outrage of backwardness to normal lives.
