FORMER HEALTH MINISTRY UNDERSECRETARY IS BEING VICTIMIZED ON POLITICAL GROUND.
Always demonizing Dr. Makur Koryom is erroneous, he should be praised for good work when he was the Undersecretary in the Health Ministry.
While the proverbial saying of African wise men said a leader’s acts must be judged issue-wise, not person-wise, praising the former Undersecretary for doing the right things would lend credibility to the opposition’s criticism of him when he was serving in the Health Ministry as a top official. He worked diligently during the pandemic until when those who wanted him purged succeeded in their mission of blackmail to replace him with someone who will be working for their concealed interest.
“Acts are always good, bad, and indifferent and they must be judged issue-wise and not person-wise. Dr. Makur exemplary performance at the helm of the Health Ministry when the pandemic struck was certainly the best the country has ever experienced and his scheme is only one amongst other good deeds, he proved himself worthy in the public sector that is marred with corruption and misguidance.
As you know, what Dr. Makur did when he was at the helm of responsibility should be praised and would add credibility to our criticisms whenever he errs. I welcome the views of those who are opposing his returns to national duties to a view for which I will be excoriated later. The public shouldn’t castigate his reinstatement as a political tool to suffocate the reality.
Dr. Makur governance model was not a complete negative story and not recognizing his work and demonizing him all the time is not going to help instead it will backfire on those who have harsh motives toward him and his constituents. This is a man who has done so much to salvage the Health care sector in the country.
Nation-building is an ongoing process carried on by successive governments with the right appointees and such hope can only be realized by people like Dr. Makur. Instead of trying to diminish him, they should accept his and prerogative immense contribution toward South Sudan public Service. Criticisms should be on policies, not personalities.
