War: Solution to the crisis in South Sudan?

Is War the only solution to the ongoing civil war in South Sudan, rather than peace?

According to history, between 1800 and 1900 the two tribes (Nuer and Dinka) never lived peacefully.

The first reason was the Dinka’s fear of confronting the Naath (Nuer). After learning that the Naath were warriors they (Dinka) lured the British and Sudanese to fight Nuer, or Naath.

But between 1908 and 1910 all the land taken by the Nuer were returned to Dinka under British colonial rule.

This was the first time a foreign government involved itself in Sudanese affairs.

The British and Sudanese governments were very eager to colonise the remaining tribe, the Nuer in the South, while the Dinka were interested in getting rid of Nuer indirectly.

Likewise, war in South Sudan can be the only solution to bring peace for the following reasons:


First, China and Russia are advocating for the communist government of Salva Kiir Mayardit to prevail. This made it very hard for the peace effort made by the Western world and continental Africa.

USA and Europe are trying their level best to make the young Nation peaceful as they supported the separation from North Sudan in 2011.

These differences and a great deal of interest from the world super powers are not making the road to peace an easy process.

With regard to the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD), the same interest is sharply dividing them too. Uganda and other countries do not want to support the move.

The IGAD countries will soon divide themselves directly in their support to warring parties.

This may turn out as follows:

Seven countries from IGAD will support the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – In Opposition (SPLM IO) under Dr Riek Machar-Teny either or directly.

Two Horn of Africa counties may be natural.

Two countries may support President Salva Kiir.

As the war will continue, Kiir will be defeated and captured.


According to the prophecy of Ngundeng the war will never end until Salva Kiir and his allies are defeated and no one will stop the fighting.

The same prophecy said nobody will mediate the two parties until Dr Riek Machar-Teny defeats Salva Kiir by force.


If the world imposes the peace agreement again without balancing the forces of the rivals there will be worse fighting again in Juba.

There will be peace in South Sudan when Dr Riek Machar-Teny becomes President because, in the history of South Sudan, Dr John Garang ruled because Prophet Ngundeng said he will rule for just a short period.

The same Prophet said Salva Kiir will rule after Garang but the Kiir Mayardit regime will be the most disastrous regime in the Nation.

And after Kiir, Dr Riek Machar-Teny will take over by force in liberating the South Sudanese from a dictatorship regime.

Ngundeng said the whole world will turn against Machar-Teny but later on will disown Salva Kiir Mayardit for the evil lies and abuse made by his government to the South Sudanese.

According to the prophecy only God will stand with Machar-Teny in the campaign for freedom in South Sudan.

Prophet Ngundeng said nobody will kill Dr Riek Machar-Teny and he will restore the Glory of the Nation and all tribes will live in harmony, peace and prosperity.

From now, up to the beginning of 2017, the war will be going to Greater Bhar el Ghazal and Greater Equatoria. Meanwhile, the Greater Upper Nile may be freed from President Salva Kiir’s regime later this year.

The war may take a long time if the world insists on making peace rather than letting two warring paties fight until one side is defeated.
