  • he idea of creating the Magazine of Beautiful South Sudan was

    envisioned by Dr. Omot Agwa, Mrs. Rachel Obal, and Mrs. Chaam

    Philipe Obang on July 9, 2011. The magazine is created on the

    assumption of introducing the Republic of South Sudan on various

    features, such as cultures and tradition, various current social and

    economic events, health, and sports activities of people of South

    Sudan to both the South Sudanese in the Diaspora and the

    international community on quarterly basis. It is also intended to

    promote the local businesses of South Sudanese and people who want

    to invest in the Republic of South Sudan. In this case, it can attack

    many South Sudanese in the Diaspora and foreigners to go and invest

    or take part in the on-going developmental activities in the newly

    formed and untapped South Sudan. By doing this, we are putting the

    newly formed the Republic of South Sudan on the map of the world.

    As the first magazine of its kind to be introduced in the short history

    of the Republic of South Sudan, it is with a great pleasure that we are

    announcing the foundation of this historic magazine that honors all

    ethnic groups and each citizen of South Sudan and South Sudanese

    friends.

    The Beautiful South Sudan Magazine is intended to be one of the

    vehicles that South Sudanese communities can use to promote their

    values and country. The Republic of South Sudan is gifted with a lot

    of natural resources that are still unutilized. Although the country is

    endowed with lot of resources such as petroleum, gold, silver, iron

    ore, copper, chromium ore, zinc, tungsten, mica, hydro power, timber,

    fertile land, cattle, wild-life, and etc, it still requires knowledge,

    expertise, and innovation of all its citizens in order to gain a

    respectful status among all the other nations. In this regard, the

    Beautiful South Sudan Magazine can be utilized as a platform where

    all citizens of South Sudan and their friends can express themselves

    with dignity, and place their inputs in the promotion of

    the beautifulness of their beloved country. No matter where they are,

    the people of South Sudan can still input their fruitful ideas by

    utilizing the power of technology and participate in the promotion

    of the success of the magazine.

    Now the moment has come for the citizens of South Sudan to shine

    and prove to the world that they did not get their independence by

    chance. To do this, they have to get to the root cause of their conflicts

    and come up with permanent resolutions through peaceful and

    democratic negotiations in order to make the transition smooth and to

    achieve the dreams of their fellow citizens who lost their lives for the

    freedom and independence of South Sudan.

    Editorial

    Magazine of Beautiful South Sudan

    The Republic of South Sudan

    has become a country after

    years of war and now, it is the

    time for its people to defy the

    odds and shape up the vision

    for the future of the nation,

    and establish the goals to

    develop the country and enjoy

    the freedom that their citizens

    deserve. Now, the door of

    participation is open for those

    who want to see the country

    prospered and become one of

    well known destinations in

    African. There is no country

    in the world developed by

    foreigners. It is the citizens of

    each country that can develop

    their own country,

    Chinery-Hesse (Ghanian

    Software developer). Therefore,

    no one can promote the interest

    of South Sudan and build it

    better than the South Sudanese

    themselves. Although the

    Magazine of Beautiful South

    Sudan has the capability to

    promote the need and the

    success of South Sudan, it still

    needs a strong collaboration

    with South Sudanese experts,

    investors, businessmen, and

    ordinary fellow citizens in

    order to succeed in promoting

    the success of South Sudan and

    its citizens.

  • From Guerilla Fighter to

    Independence Politician:

    The Story of South Sudan's

    Salva Kiir Mayardit

    By Andrew McGregor

    With the January 9, 2011, referendum on South

    Sudanese independence only weeks away, a

    long-time rebel commander turned politician

    stands to become the first president of a new

    African nation with both abundant oil reserves

    and a highly uncertain future. Salva Kiir

    Mayardit, a Roman Catholic Rek Dinka from

    Warrap State in Bahr al-Ghazal Province,

    fought in both of Sudan's civil wars, finishing

    the second as chief military commander of the

    Sudan People's Liberation Army/Movement

    (SPLA/M).

    BackgroundIn 1967, a 17-year-old Salva Kiir joined the

    Anyanya Rebellion (1955-1972), an armed

    effort to establish a separate state in South

    Sudan. Following the 1972 Addis Ababa

    Agreement that brought an end to Sudan's first

    civil war, Kiir was among those Anyanya

    guerillas who were integrated into the Sudanese

    Armed Forces, or the Wildlife Protection

    Service (many other irreconcilable fighters

    went south to Idi Amin's Uganda). He

    graduated from the Sudan Military College in

    Omdurman and went on to serve as a major in

    Sudanese military intelligence.

    Colonel John Garang de Mabior (who emerged

    as the SPLA/M's Chairman), Lieutenant

    Colonel Karabino Kuanyin Bol, Major Arok

    Thon Arok and Lieutenant Colonel William

    Nyuon Bany. Of these figures, only Salva Kiir

    survives today.

    Kiir began to play an important political and

    diplomatic role in 1993 when he led the SPLM

    delegation to the Organization of African

    Unity-sponsored Sudan peace talks in Abuja,

    Nigeria. Kiir filled the role as John Garang's

    deputy following the death of William Nyoun

    Bany in 1996. He again led the SPLM

    delegation to the initial Inter-Governmental

    Authority on Development (IGAD)-sponsored

    Sudan peace talks in Kenya's Eastern Province

    that paved the way for the ground-breaking July

    2002 Machakos Protocol. The Machakos

    Protocol was the first in a series of eight

    protocols that ultimately led to the Naivasha

    Agreement, formally known as the

    Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA),

    signed in Nairobi on January 9, 2005. The

    signing of the CPA in Nairobi set the stage for

    the 2011 referendum vote and for the equal

    distribution of oil revenues between North and

    South.

    Having joined the renewed Southern

    insurgency in 1983, Salva Kiir's skills

    and influence were recognized when

    he was made a memberof the SPLA/M

    High Command Council, alongside

    notable southern soldiers such as

    sun, South Sudan's

    flag was raised here

    on Thursday

    marking the

    admission of world's

    newest country as

    the 193rd member

    of the United Nations.

    "over our shared

    capital, the capital

    of the international

    community, here at

    the UN," UN

    Secretary-General

    Ban Ki-moon said addressing the audience

    at the flag-raising ceremony. South Sudan's

    Vice President Riek Machar hailed the day

    as "historic" and "emotional." "We're

    humbled that we're now part of the world

    community," Machar said. The flag with a

    triangle at the hoist, a gold star in the

    triangle, and colors -- black representing

    the South Sudanese people, white standing

    for peace, red embodying the blood shed for

    freedom, green symbolizing the land and blue

    to present the waters of the Nile. The gold

    "star of Bethlehem" in the triangle represents

    the hope of the South Sudanese people.

    From now on, the

    flag "will fly as high

    and as proud as

    the flags here in

    New York and

    of the UN's

    youngest member,

    described as "a

    symbolic gesture

    expressing the

    solidarity and the friendship that must prevail

    in our nations."Deiss underlined that the UN
