A brilliant genocide, a documentary that directly pins M7 to war in Northern Uganda...

The documentary suggests that Museveni and his army provoked and prolonged the war that transformed Kony from a former Catholic altar boy into a diabolical warlord. The conspiracy of silence about Museveni is likely explained by the fact that he is probably America’s closest African military ally, and receives lavish development and military aid from western donors. Butler’s courageous, intelligent movie not only breaks the cruel silence surrounding the war in northern Uganda; it also raises urgent questions about the part that successive US presidents—Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr., and unfortunately even Barack Obama—played in enabling and empowering Museveni who continues “to abuse the rights of Ugandans today” in the age of Donald Trump. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8boQaql6Ofc&t=333s Videos

Thus says the LORD: You, son of man, I have appointed watchman for the house of Israel; when you hear me say anything, you shall warn them for me. If I tell the wicked, "O wicked one, you shall surely die, " and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked from his way, the wicked shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death. But if you warn the wicked, trying to turn him from his way, and he refuses to turn from his way, he shall die for his guilt, but you shall save yourself.

South Sudan rebel leader rejects presidential amnesty

A South Sudanese rebel has rejected a presidential offer of amnesty, questioning the credibility of the order and describing it a strategy to delay suffering of the people. Thomas Cirilo, who switched side early this year and formed a separate rebel group operating on a parallel side to the main armed opposition faction of the SPLM-IO under the leadership of the former Frist Vice President Riek Machar said that he learnt from the media the amnesty extended to him by the president. “I did not have any discussion with anybody from the government before. I learned that they decided to extend me amnesty in the media. I don’t know in which context," Cirilo said. "Instead of me extending my amnesty, Salva Kiir should be the one to seek amnesty from the suffering people of South Sudan for all crimes he and his associates have committed before and the after the break out the war,” he added. Cirilo said the unbearable human suffering in the country was a creation of Salva Kiir

Kiir not qualified to initiate national dialogue, says Lam Akol

A South Sudanese opposition leader who has been a leading critic of President Salva Kiir reaffirmed his belief Monday that Kiir would be unsuitable to call for a national dialogue in the country. "I don't think that Salva Kiir is qualified to call for dialogue because he dishonoured the peace agreement in July 2016 and caused the ongoing war. The call for dialogue by Salva Kiir is to cover up his military operations," Lam Akol said in an interview. The prominent politician, who is now the leader of South Sudan’s opposition National Democratic Movement (NDM), yesterday said his group was opposed to the national dialogue initiated by President Kiir. He denied reports that they had accepted in principle to join the dialogue process. “We are saying that there is no need for the ongoing national dialogue in Juba,” he said. Lam Akol, a former agriculture minister in Kiir's administration, said the international community should create a new forum for peace in the country.

Raila, Uhuru to face off October 17, says IBEC

Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta will face off at the ballot on October 17, IEBC has said. The decision was arrived at after the Supreme Court of Kenya nullified the presidential results that were held on August 8. "There shall be no fresh nominations in the envisaged fresh election. The petitioner before the Supreme Court ... Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka and the third respondent Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto shall be the only candidates," IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati said in a statement on Monday. IEBC says it is revising the operational and procedural requirements for the fresh polls and will share details in the coming days. In the disputed election, Uhuru allegedly won by 1.4 million votes against Raila. This is the third time that Raila is vying for the top seat. He lost in 2007 and 2013 citing voter irregularities. Education CS Fred Matiang'i had asked the electoral agency to conduct polls before the national examinations.   In

Todays church reading; My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.

Reading 1JER 20:7-9

You duped me, O LORD, and I let myself be duped; you were too strong for me, and you triumphed. All the day I am an object of laughter; everyone mocks me. Whenever I speak, I must cry out, violence and outrage is my message; the word of the LORD has brought me derision and reproach all the day. I say to myself, I will not mention him, I will speak in his name no more. But then it becomes like fire burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones; I grow weary holding it in, I cannot endure it.

Court violates will of people – Uhuru

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday disagreed with the Supreme Court ruling that nullified his reelection but promised to respect the decision. Addressing the nation from State House, Nairobi, the President said the sovereign will of the people was changed on Friday by the court led by Chief Justice David Maraga. “Some six people cannot change the resolve of 40 million Kenyans. They can’t. Kenyans are the ones who will decide,” Uhuru said. “I personally disagree with the ruling that has been made today. But I respect it as much as I disagree with it.” He said millions of Kenyans queued on August 8 to make their choice but the top-most court “decided to go against the will of the people”. The head of state urged Kenyans to maintain peace and respect the court ruling. He said his main challenger and NASA leader Raila Odinga should be ready for a humiliating defeat in the election repeat. Uhuru boasted of the majority of governors, senators and MPs elected o

South Sudan president not stepping down for anyone: spokesman

South Sudan President Salva Kiir has no plan to step down for anyone, his spokesman said Wednesday. Presidential spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny said in a statement released to the public on Wednesday that President Kiir was not contemplating ceding power, dispelling speculation claiming Kiir was considering stepping down in favour of Costello Garang Riiny Lual, a former presidential advisor who is living abroad. “I came across certain Facebook posting allegedly, of President Salva Kiir Mayardit ceding power in favour of Dr Costello Garang Riiny Lual. I thought it was belated April Fool Day or the early one in anticipation - therefore I ignored the story. However, the story has persistently continued unabated and few, if not every South Sudanese has curiously become irritable by the persistence of ’the made-up story’ and even sought my intervention. It is not true that the President is leaving power next in favour of Dr. Costello Garang anytime, and for whatever reason,” explai

South Sudan:Defense minister gives Machar rebels 30-day ultimatum to declare truce

South Sudan’s defense minister has given rebels an ultimatum to declare their readiness to declare a cease-fire and join peace, or face government offensives. Minister Kuol Manyang Juuk struck an unexpectedly non-reconciliatory tone, saying the government will give the opposition 30 days only to join the government. Addressing the joint operation force in Juba on Monday Kuol said: "We will give them [rebels] 30 days. So anyone who fails to come after 30 days, we will consider him as an enemy and we will crush him.” The top government official in charge of the country’s security pointed out that President Kiir’s general amnesty to those taking up arms against the government will not remain open-ended. “The door cannot be left open. The president has announced the general amnesty several months ago and the First Vice President has also been calling upon those people to come to the government but they refused,” said. Kuol emphasized the need for one army in Sout
