LEAVE OMAR AL BASHIR ALONE.

My Point of View

I want to be categorical from the word go,I don’t support the termination of life,I don’t support leaders who use state resources and powers to kill their own subjects even if they are on the opposition side,I don’t support the killing of more than 300,000 innocent Sudanese in the struggle to have dominance by Omar Al Bashir, also want to state that I don’t support his Invitation to attend Kenya’s big day by the president of Kenya because it has once again disorganized the coalition working relations,I still don’t support US President’s criticism on Kenya for having left Al Bashir scot free.
LEAVE OMAR AL BASHIR ALONE.
I do support the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government of the Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement,I do support the efforts being made by the AU to ensure peace in Sudan,I do support the referendum that was agreed on as a result of Khartoum central government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) meeting in Naivasha in 2005 ,I do support the decision by African Heads of State to go slow on Omar,I do support the ICC for classifying Omar Al Bashirs case and releasing a warrant of his arrest,I do support the spirit and the letter of the Rome Statute signed by 113 countries of the world America being the 114th one that thinks it needs not to sign.

Although,

Having supported and opposed all that,we come back to reality,we might set laws which should be followed but that does not mean that we cannot bend them at times,am not advocating for injustice,what am saying is that if we are not going to be keen enough and understand the real causes of war in Africa we will always have conflict,am saying this because I find undue attention being given to this Al Bashir case,just like any other African case this should not be secluded just because the Sudan President was indicted by the ICC.Reason behind this is because the same people pilling pressure on African Nations to arrest Bashir are partly to blame for the wars in Africa,the same people have the economic,political and Military Muscles to stop the insanity that is Somalia,but what are they doing?

Do they want to wait and come 10years later and chase after someone in Somalia for having Killed innocent civilians?

In a case like Bashirs,I honestly don’t see why President Obama came out accusing Kenya of failing to meet the requirements of the Rome Statute,this is because America in the first place is not a signatory to it,I would forgive his remarks because maybe he was speaking like a Kenyan but not an American President,maybe he felt that his country (Kenya) was not owning up to agreements it makes,but this is not the case,even if it were I expected Hillary Clinton to come out with such strong labels.We ought to remember that the African Union had its own agreement as pertaining Sudan,in our own inefficiency as Africans we thought that Chasing after Bashir would amount to killing the Sudan Peace Agreement,it would be like telling the Sudan Government to ignite the Janjaweed Militia,it will be like telling the Sudan Arabs to forget about their Black brothers,is this what America and the rest of the superpowers want us to do? Is anyone seeing this calculation?

When Kenya was put on the ICC list,many people knew that Moreno Ocampo would deal with the culprits without bending a law,but history will tell you that Kenya asked ICC to go slow on the Kenyan case so as to allow the reform process,this was meant to allow an environment where all Kenyans will be united in realizing a new constitution and implementing it and to this ICC complied,basing on that alone I don’t know why someone is not seeing the need to allow Southern Sudan go through the Referendum and help cement the Peace agreement before reigning in on Bashir,I don’t see why someone is not telling this ICC thing that Africans too can make decisions so that ICC respects AU,I don’t see why America for example is not seeing the need to leave Bashir alone at least for some time.

If you were to ask me I would say ICC is just a Mr.Fix it because it sings to the tune of none signatories, it is very unfair for some nations to dictate the existence of others,it is very unfair for the leaders of the ‘big brothers’ to disrespect the decision by African Heads of States,what I am seeing here is someone attempting to put the cart before the horse, what am seeing here is a wider plan to take Sudan Back,what am seeing here is a ploy to create the necessity of Military Aid and Financial support by returning the Darfur conflict so as someone positions himself in some strategic position to siphon off resources in the guise of offering humanitarian aid.
Bashir deserves peace yes,for the greater Sudan to have peace we need to ensure that the peace agreement is adhered to,we have to make sure that Southern Sudan is not taken back to the Days when life was hard,for us to realize a peaceful Africa we have to reduce the Darfurs,we have to reduce the Somalia,Angola,Congo and other conflicts, we have to listen to the African Voice because it is us who understand each other more,the big brothers only understand our resources best.

I want to go off beat a bit,
You have heard News of billions in aid to Africa from ‘generous’ donors yet African nations are exporting crops to other parts of the world makes me wonder if this aid makes the situation better or worse since we all know the conditions for these aid. If this is related to the African Conflicts we both should live to find out.

I want to go back in history and quote from Bishop Desmond Tutus words
“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, “Let us pray.” We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.”

You just got to find out what the missionary is holding in his hand this time round to know why we need not close our eyes again.

Please Leave Bashir alone for Africa’s sake.

I rest my case.

Wamasebu,you are getting it wrong,the AU is not saying Bashir is right,it is not saying he should not be prosecuted,it is only saying that we need to foster peace in Sudan,we need to give the peace process a chance,we need to allow Southern Sudan go to the REFFERENDA.

I dsagree with Dunpresident on president Hassan EL-Bashir.What is happening in Africa is to shield criminals from being accountable to political governance.Africa Union should not extend and support impunity,instea d it should support the rule of law,respect of human rights,institut e good governance tenets and condemn the emergence and re-emergence of millitiamen for political purposes.
If the case will be shielded by AU,then who will protect the downtrodden society who dont have political musles?
Au need to be carefu so that it does not run irrelevant in Afica.

Doc what you have to understand is that,in the world injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere,if we are not keen enough to protect our neighbours then we should say good bye to our own security,what happened and should not be forgiven here is a case where Bashir was allowed to attend our important Day,it is like the chief of police housing a fugitive.Otherwise i don't agree with the reason being given for Kenya's Bashing by the so called international Nations.

The peace of Sudan is less important to us than the respect of our constitution and our laws by ourselves
