When Should the Word ”Moblisaztion” be Used in South Sudan to benefit all at all time?

0

Here in my Country you can use the Word Mobilize in many ways either for  resources in good time or bad time but one has high demand for all while the other have low demand. Which one have high demand for those not your people?

And is it good to only call for your People when is happy time to mobilize and leave others to be Mobilized during bad times?

Gyrocopter Pilot Wasn’t Worried About Being Shot Down in D.C.

CBS DC

TAMPA, Fla. — The letter carrier who landed his gyrocopter on Capitol Hill says he wasn’t concerned about getting shot down as he made his final approach.

Doug Hughes told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t believe the government would have shot down a “61-year-old mail man in a flying bicycle.”

Hughes was arrested last week. He was carrying letters for each member of Congress to raise awareness about the influence of big money in politics. He faces charges of violating national airspace and operating an unregistered aircraft.

He has returned to Florida where he’ll be under house arrest until a May 8 court hearing in Washington.

He says it’s now up to the American people to decide whether to “catch the ball that I threw.” If they do, he says they can “fix the problem” of corruption in Congress.

Radio Tamazuj: SPLA factions trade accusations over imminent attacks

0

The two warring parties in South Sudan, the SPLA in government and the SPLA in opposition, earlier this week accused each other of preparing to carry out attacks in Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei States.

Philip Aguer, the spokesman of the SPLA faction, accused the SPLA-IO of preparing for offensives on their positions in various areas under their control.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj, Aguer said: “Our forces are observing the activities of the rebels in the states. So they are now preparing to wage fresh attacks on our positions.”

Aguer confirmed his government’s commitment to respect the cessation of hostilities agreement. However, he said they are ready to fight for self-defence if the rebels started new attacks.

Meanwhile, SPLA-IO assistant deputy military spokesman Dickson Gatkuoth accused the government forces of planning to attack them around Bnetiu town.

“The people of South Sudan and the international community should know that the Juba government is currently preparing for major offensives on our positions,” he said.

Gatkuoth said they would shell the government positions to preempt the alleged offensive and urged citizens to leave.

MSF SOUTH SUDAN: A year after mass killings in Bentiu, violence and displacement continue.

0

 

(15 April 2015) A year after the mass killings of civilians in the oil town of Bentiu in South Sudan, including people sheltering in the hospital where MSF was running an HIV/TB project, the violence and displacement have continued and access to basic healthcare and food remains a problem for people living in rural areas outside the town.

Following the fighting, MSF treated over 230 people for gunshot wounds and thousands of the town’s residents fled for their lives to the nearby UN peacekeepers’ base, which swelled from 6,000 people to more than 22,000 within a matter of days. One year later, the number of people seeking protection has significantly increased with over 53,000 displaced people living on a 1 km piece of land which is cordoned off with barbed wire and guarded by UN troops.

Initially living conditions within the site were life-threatening due to overcrowding and a lack of water and sanitation. Conditions became even worse during last year’s rainy season when the camp was completely flooded. With water levels above the knee, many were forced to sleep standing up with their children in their arms. Several people drowned. Since the arrival of the dry season, living conditions within the site have improved and various aid organizations are providing basic services to tens of thousands of people living within its confines. MSF set up a tented hospital to provide residents with quality secondary healthcare services and works to ensure that people living within the site have access to an adequate quantity of clean water and sanitation facilities.

Providing humanitarian assistance within a UN base is an absolute last resort for MSF. As an independent, impartial and neutral medical aid organization, we need to remain distinct from political and military actors. But in these extraordinary circumstances, with heightened tension and fear, it’s important for people to be able to access medical services where they feel safe.

MSF is also working outside the confines of the UN “Protection of Civilians” site as the majority of people affected by the ongoing conflict remains dispersed in hard-to-reach rural areas, with many displaced multiple times by fighting. MSF is providing mobile clinics in Ding Ding, Nhialdiu, and in Bentiu town itself with a focus on basic IPD and maternal healthcare. Assessments in the surrounding areas continue – most recently to Nimni in Guit County and Ngop in Rubkona county. A 28 year old woman from Ngop whose severely malnourished child was hospitalized by MSF in February said ‘’People have suffered so much because of the floods, it destroyed all our crops. So there is nothing to eat. If you are sick, there is nowhere you can go. The nearest health care facility we used to access before the crisis, has no drugs anymore’’.

In these surrounding rural areas in particular, the ongoing conflict has reduced people’s access to healthcare. Local facilities often lack support and adequate medical supplies. Frontlines, military movements, ongoing shelling and gunfire mean that people are afraid to walk long distances to those few health facilities that are functioning.

Bentiu, the former vibrant state capital, is now a garrison town, with most businesses and market stalls run by government soldiers. Although the bodies of civilians that littered the streets have been cleared away, the carcasses of abandoned vehicles remain at the side of the road. Most of the town’s houses were burnt to the ground and have not been rebuilt. A melted TV remote control or lone iron bed frame on the scorched earth are the only clues to what once stood there. The modern hospital in town where MSF provided TB and HIV care has been ransacked, the windows and doors smashed, medical equipment and drugs scattered about. Infested with bats and vermin, it is no longer in use although MSF does run a mobile clinic with a focus on antenatal care in an outbuilding that has been cleaned up.

As the conflict in South Sudan continues, there is no end in sight for the humanitarian situation in Bentiu. Ongoing insecurity, active fighting and shelling, and violence against civilians in the vicinity mean that many displaced people currently living in the “Protection of Civilians” site have no choice but to remain inside for the foreseeable future. The need for assistance to this population, in a place where they feel safe, will continue.

 UntitledIn the meantime, MSF continues to provide medical care to more than 100,000 people in the area around Bentiu. But ensuring respect for humanitarian and medical facilities, staff, and patients continues to be a challenge.

USAID Launches Eye Radio Repeater Station in Torit

0

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Internews, a media development organization, and Zain Telecommunications Company Friday launched the first Eye Radio repeater station in Torit, Eastern Equatoria State.

Torit repeater is the first of ten planned radio repeaters to extend Eye Radio reception to all ten South Sudan states and their rural communities.

Radio is the primary source of information for most people in the Republic of South Sudan (RSS), yet access to radio is challenging in many areas, particularly rural communities. Radio access has also deteriorated because of the ongoing conflict, which has displaced more than two million people from their homes.

The ceremony was attended by the Mission Director of USAID, the State Minister of Information, and other dignitaries.

Our main goal is to empower and strengthen free and independent media in the Republic of South Sudan in a way that is self-sustaining.  By doing so, we will improve access to information for the people of South Sudan, to help them become better informed citizens of their nation,” said Teresa McGhie, USAID Mission Director.

Since 2003, USAID has supported the development of independent media in RSS. The new repeater in Torit will increase Eye Radio’s audience by approximately 100,000 listeners in Eastern Equatoria State.  The Eye Radio expansion, which has been made possible by the partnership with Zain Telecommunications Company, will ultimately enable expansion of Eye Radio to all the ten states.

The pilot repeater station in Torit will be followed by other repeater stations in Wau, Rumbek, Kwajok, Aweil, Bor and Yambio, to reach as many as 750,000 listeners, in addition to Eye Radio’s existing audience in Central Equatoria State.

In the near future, Internews will also distribute approximately 50,000 solar-powered, hand-crank radio receivers to communities in RSS that lack access to radio, building on USAID’s legacy of helping RSS’s citizens gain access to information. Before the South Sudan independence, USAID distributed tens of thousands of such radios to communities in the then Sudanese nation.

Under this program USAID has also supported the provision of lifesaving and life-enhancing information to people displaced by the conflict in the Lakes State, as well as the protection of civilian sites at United Nations compounds in Juba and other areas.logo
