South Sudan

AFRICA’S newest country, the Republic of South Sudan is on the brink. Going by well-known historical antecedents, it may only survive the volcano revolting in its pot if this fact is recognised in time and necessary state, national and international actions taken. Else it boils over!

  And when there are rumours of a coup, prominent people fleeing and all kinds of other funny movements, then you know the stage is set for something more untoward. Was the country then jaundiced from the very beginning?  

  When South Sudan seceded from the north to become an independent nation in 2011, the former deputy culture minister Jok Madut Jok described his new country this way: “Our country, as it stands today, is a four-legged animal but the legs are broken.” 

  He went further to say: “The first leg for any government is a disciplined military. We have problems with the way our military functions today. That’s a broken leg. We have civil society; right now it is very weak. The third leg is delivery of services. It is hard to deliver security …the fourth leg is political unity. We had political unity in the days leading up to the referendum. Since the referendum, we have been having difficulties uniting our ranks. So right now the animal is standing on four crooked legs. If we do not fix these legs, the future is going to be very, very difficult.”

  And that future seems to be here now with the revelation last week that President Salva Kiir had foiled a coup orchestrated by a disgruntled faction in the army, which backs former vice president Riek Machar. Machar was sacked in July when the president dismissed his entire cabinet.

  Agency reports last week indicated that fighting continued to rage in the capital Juba. More than 450 people are said to have been killed since violence erupted precisely on December 15. Thousands of people have been sheltering in United Nations buildings in Juba after fleeing their home

Central African Republic

The current crisis started in March, when predominantly Muslim armed groups from the north, called the Seleka (“alliance”), staged a violent offensive, ousting president François Bozizé from power, and installing in the capital city Bangui one of its leaders, Michel Djotodia – the first Muslim president of this majority-Christian nation.

With no discernible political or religious agenda, and as documented in our September report “I Can Still Smell the Dead:” The Forgotten Human Rights Crisis in the Central African Republic , the Seleka have raped, pillaged and burned, killing scores of women, children and elderly. While Muslim communities were not always spared, the Seleka have been particularly vicious toward Christian civilians.

Seleka abuses contributed to the resurgence of  mostly Christian militias known as the “anti-balaka”(“anti-machete”), comprising poorly armed civilians backed by a few former military personnel still loyal to Bozizé. While they claim to protect their villages against Seleka attacks, many have retaliated against defenseless Muslim civilians with the same cruelty and brutality.

During a research mission in northern Central African Republic last month, I talked to Massadou Bichefou, a Mus
