People of South Sudan are suffering now from deadly violence in our own hands as we seek self-fulfilment, says the President of the Republic of South Sudan.
 
Salva Kiir Mayardit in his speech on Wednesday says the SPLM party has fully abandoned the vision of the party and turned against South Sudanese.
 
“We are selling the country for which millions have died. Majority of our people are now living in poverty”, he notes.
 
The president described the past five years fighting as extremely petty because it is a struggle for power.
 
President Kiir calls on the public to stand for democratic elections, and the defeated candidates should prepare for the next period.
 
“This is the principle of democracy. When power is sought outside the institution of democracy, it leads to violence, division and hatred. Power gained through legitimate means is peaceful, rewarding and dignifying”, he adds.
 
The recent signed revitalized agreement has reconciled all the differing views, and we need to implement it with trust and confidence among us, the president argues.
 
He calls on the parties to return to the path of democracy so as not to delay the development of the country. 
 
“We should abandon investing in power wrangling. Instead, we should all invest in peace and democracy, and spread the benefits of freedom and independence to our people who deserve so much more from us”, Kiir says.
 
The President repeats statement of forgiving all those who organized violence to seek power, and equally call upon South Sudanese to forgive them.
 
The President was delivering his speech on the occasion of 16th May at the State House J1 on Wednesday in Juba.
