I’m bringing this issues to great thinkers toponder and advise our Dear Foreign Minister Bernard C. Membe and the Secretary General ofthe Ruling Party of the Republic of Tanzania to help and clearly understand the inner part of the conflictof South Sudanese people before stepping in. I know the Foreign Minister mightbe well informed, but to my thinking he misses a point to mediate the politicalfractures in the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and Sudan People’sLiberation Movement (SPLM) will solve the problem of the Republic of SouthSudan (ROSS). The fracture profoundly entrenched in ethnicity line thanpolitical. It is true that a power struggle within the political elite of theSPLA and SPLM came to a head in July 2013 when the political relationshipbetween President Salva Kiir and Vice President Riek Machar deteriorated andthe latter was removed from his post. In December 2013, following an allegedattempt at a coup d’état by soldiers loyal to Machar, tensions descended intoviolent conflict in the streets of Juba. Hundreds were reported killed in thedays that followed, and the violence, which quickly took on an ethnicdimension, spread rapidly throughout the country. The point to comprehend for now is that conflictis characterised by the fracturing of communities. Whilethe conflict may be viewed in simple terms as a dispute between SPLM-inOpposition-supporting Nuer andSPLM-supporting Dinka, the realityis more complex, and many Nuerremain loyal to the SPLM. Even in Bentiu, Unity state, which has been a site ofcontinued violence, the SPLM government is predominantly Nuer. Nonetheless, traditional rivalries between the Dinka and Nuer have been a strong feature and driver of the on-goingconflict. The good intention of the Foreign Minister if not fingered properlyto know the true face of the conflict of the ROSS, it will be waste of time,waste of monies of Tanzanians tax payers and will exasperate his politicalambitions. I respect the Minister.

Membe and the Secretary General of the Ruling Party of the United Republic of Tanzania to help and clearly understand the inner part of the conflictof South Sudanese people before stepping in.

The fracture, is profoundly entrenched in ethnic lines than political . It is true that a power struggle within the political elite of theSPLA and SPLM came to a head in July 2013, when the political relationship between President Salva Kiir and the then Vice President Riek Machar deteriorated and the latter was removed from his post.

I respect the Minister.
There's nothing tribal about this conflict. You fought the same enemy for years, use the same spirit to build your Nation.
Garang said you all have the same interests, use that as a unifying weapon, not otherwise.

The conflict in Ross is purely ethnic based. Tanzania before engaging itself into mediating the actors on this conflict, should first of all look at the interest of some east African countries members state role in the conflict. Salvakir and Uganda interest, Machar and the Garang's interest.

Northern Sudan interest etc. This conflict if not properly checked might result to a totally injured EAC relations. Some countries are involved in this conflict for political and strategic reasons. If the reasons will not be made clear otherwise those involved in mediation will not succeed.
