Billion Congratulations For Secession of South Sudan

"I am now celebrating the best news of independence of South Sudan though its freedom is not yet over because of many pending issues and problems to be resolved ahead, by God help!"

By Dr. James Okuk

I would like to exploit this jubilant opportunity to say in advance Billion Congratulations to the people of Southern Sudan, both inside and in the Diaspora. Now my nerves are getting relaxed and cool that we are done with our dignity far away from the injustice of Northern Sudan elites in Khartoum and elsewhere. I have no doubt that the counted results of the polling will  be over 80% in favor of secession of South Sudan when officially announced at the end of this month, January 2011.
Now after this best news we shall turn our eyes focusedly  into our own internal challenges inside South Sudan itself and its current or coming government leadership. I pray that we start the declared independence in July 2011 on a right footing in order to move forward progressively and catch up with other developing countries in a most positive mood; even if it is slow let it be sure.

Nothing shall be impossible under the sun,  moon and stars if we develop the attitude of good will and patriotism for safeguarding the common good of the new born country in the world map, and without condoning the individualistic spree of corruption (with all its forms), tribalism (including nepotism), incompetence, greed and and lies. The international community shall continue to stand with us as they have already welcomed and accepted our right to independence from oppressions.

I am now celebrating the best news of independence of South Sudan though its freedom is not yet over because of many pending issues and problems to be resolved ahead, by God help!

Viva Republic of South Sudan.

James Okuk,
I have never seen a person with some much eratic behaviour as you. Wasn't it you who suggested the posphonement of the exercise? Wasn't it you who thought that getting freedom under the SPLM is not worth it? Wasn't it you who was very much against the people of southern Sudan? Wasn't it you who was so tribal in your writings? Stop being opportunistic. Now that you have seen the clear way, you want to jump onto the bandwagon of which you were very much confused about. What of if people had listerned to your advice and advice of your mentor Dr. Lam, would southern Sudan be so jubilant as it is today. What comes out of you destroys you. Everything about you is on the internet and you will be held accountable to everything controversial thing you have said. Just be prepared not to run away from them.
You used to talk like there was no tomorrow but tomorrow is here. You will be stripped naked by your own exposure. You did exposed yourself wether knowingly or unknowingly and that will surely come to hunt you. Even if you think you don't care about your naive political talk, you will face it after all. This is not a thread but you will experience by yourself what I am talking about. People have already formed a negative opinion about you. So, how is your political career gonna go. Lam Akol will be the last person on earth to rule the south whether he likes it or not.
