*Political Corruption & Organised Crime in South Sudan*

#SouthSudan #Sudan #SSOT


Monday 22 February, 2021
(Washington DC; London)
South Sudan is governed by a diverse, multi-ethnic, organised crime group which has both domestic & foreign enablers intricately engaged in perpetual, transnational, illicit activities at all levels of the new country’s fledgling sovereign governance structures & institutions.
A perpetual pattern of illicit activity that ranges from the smuggling of natural resources & violent extortion, to money-laundering & the financing of foreign terrorist organisations.
Akin to a caliphate of the so-called “Islamic State” in Libya or Syria, the current governance structure of South Sudan is no different; except for its lack of a religious & emotive ideology underpinning its driving principles.
The motivation & ideology of the multi-ethnic group’s members, is “personal economic gain”, says Dr. Dau Col Dau Ding within his latest comprehensive investigation; “Violent Crime & Extremism in South Sudan: The Modus Operandi of Organised Criminal Groups & Political Corruption”.
“It has not been an ethnocentric ideology that they have been pursuing. It has been the amassing of huge personal wealth. The “it’s tribal” narrative, has been calculatingly sustained in order to deflect attention away from any particular member of the group’s personal graft.”

*Thon Wal* is a police officer within the South Sudan National Police Service (SSNPS).

He was partly trained in Khartoum, Sudan, by the north Sudanese National Intelligence Security Service of the @IntlCrimCourt-indicted Omar Hassan Al-Bashir & National Congress Party regime.
Aside from being a policeman in the SSNPS, Thon Wal has also been operating in South Sudan for several years as a “private contractor” within the South Sudanese security apparatuses.

A mercenary & assassin available for hire; & more commonly called, an “Unknown Gunman”.

Unfortunately, it's “sensationalist” texts like these which constantly & over-simply focus on mono-ethnicity as the root cause of the problems of #SouthSudan that merely just continue to afford the incumbent "organised” multi-ethnic “criminal enterprise” of the SPLM with the...
...alibi it always needs to just continue with its violent, egregious & kleptocratic activities. The SPLM has never been a “Dinka organisation”. It’s a multi-ethnic group. If it was mono-ethnic, there’s no way that Kiir would still have remained its boss to date. He would have...
...been removed in one way or another.

The SPLM is made up of all ethnic groups; & Dinkas are also killed by Dinkas of that very same SPLM group. Why do observers & commentators on #SouthSudan never attempt to explain that? A lack of redress of this simple & obvious modus...

Elections in #SouthSudan CANNOT be delayed anymore.

They must be conducted at the end of 2022 as stipulated in the R-ARCSS.

Delaying further will be indicative of more experimentation by external elements. Experimentation STILL borne out of a lack of understanding of what...
...the people of South Sudan NOW need, & deserve, to take them out of their cycle of hostage.

They must NOW be permitted to “freely & fairly” choose the leaders that they want; not those that have been thrust upon them by foreigners & outside beneficiaries for years.
Everyone in #SouthSudan now knows who the spoilers of their new country are; & they can be dealt with quite easily, if the foreign stakeholders & so-called “Friends of South Sudan” are indeed serious to help the people of the new country.
