Gen. Simon Gatwech Has No Pressure to Beseeching for Acknowledgment by Salva Kiir

By Mak Banguot Gok (Makjohnson),

General Simon Gatwech Dual, the chief of staff of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army in Opposition (SPLA-IO), talks to the press in Juba on April 25, 2016.

Some of the social media warriors have begun hastening at the cheaper political conclusion that Gen. Simon Gatwech is reportedly establishing private contacts with Salva Kiir’s political camp in seek for acknowledgment from Kiir’s as the right partner in the peace agreement.

Others to the extent that, although the generals were insisting, Salva Kiir’s camp had rejected appeals for recognition from the SPLM-IO movement’s new Military-Politico Interim Council headed by Gen Simon Gatwech Dual.

Some chatter about Hon. Tut Keaw’s statement after an extraordinary presidential emergency meeting yesterday in Juba that, Tut emphasized his group’s readiness to continue partnering with the SPLM-IO’s controversially ousted leader- Dr. Machar despite the generals ‘progressive version.

All in all, these wishful attempts don’t alter the realities that are inevitably expected to follow afterwards. For those who don’t even know the political power behind the generals ‘option, they might have believed in the myths about Gen. Simon Gatwech Dual’s rescue mission.

Before you talk of anything about Kiir and Gatwech ‘new political ties, know that, the general and his cheerful aspirants have in their minds all the probabilities that are leggings detrimentally in their front whence they took decision. Gen. Simon Gatwech knew that his reaction at the tactical delays of the R-ARCSS implementation was not only an affront to Machar’s, but also on Salva Kiir’s.

Meanwhile, when the generals prompted to protest unimplemented Security Arrangement that ranked the top of all factors for uncontrollable frustrations of the generals, they knew that, Salva and Machar are sharing the same blameworthiness for equally deployed and supported each other’s tactical delays intended to badly frustrate many towards miserable submissions.

Salva Kiir might have calculated how seriously an either of the two (Gatwech and Machar) might be agitating for an ideal implementation of the R-ARCSS and, who is easily decoyed. Salva Kiir too felt that, with Machar being kept under Kiir’s mercy, there isn’t much to worry about working with Machar in the same status coup.

Equally the same, big numbers are obliged to join up with the ranks and files of the new agitators. General Simon Gatwech’s timely stepping into the rescue of SPLM-IO movement on unnecessary slipping into the historical archive halfway the victory, is being widely applauded. Because of the too many delays for over three years, accompanied by untold suffering of the people of South Sudan, the generals have at their side an unyielding support of the whole nation that doesn’t benefit from ongoing business scandals in the pretext of the R-ARCSS.

Loudly announced his opposition to the deadly entrenched double standard in Juba, the generals has the support of majority. Agitation for practical implementation of the peace deal was in the best interests of millions of the South Sudanese who has been caught in bewilders due to the situation of “No Peace” and “No War” phenomenon. Therefore, General. Gatwech’s group has its prime’s objectives to achieve through special missions.

Thus! With the concerns as to whether Gen Simon Gatwech seeks or not an alliance with Salva Kiir is somewhat unrealistic. He and his group would have not stepped in for the rescue mission if working with Kiir’s genocidal regime was their push-factor. Whether we know or not, the main target which is a radical change of the current status of the coup of the R-ARCSS in Juba will be imposed through military turmoil. That doesn’t require intermingling with Salva Kiir’s which don’t cooperate in an ideal implementation of the R-ARCSS such as: Unconditional Security Arrangement; Establishment of a Hybrid Court; Radical Civil Service Reforms and so on.

Now, the question is whether the generals are capable of using the latter? Battle Field Democracy is one of the political methods for peace negotiations on the table.
