South Sudanese student to launch three books
By Charles Lotara
Kan Gueh Kan, a South Sudanese student based in Zimbabwe is set to launch three books on 9th October this year.
The books titled The State of South Sudan Leadership, The Africa We Want, and Africa and the Next Generation, focus on Africa-related affairs.
In an abstract seen by Juba Monitor, the first aforementioned book highlights how South Sudan could potentially be transformed in the absence of power wrangles, economic inequality, tribalism and impunity.
“Her diversity and multiplicity cannot be realized if tribalism persists within the nation, heightened by the existence of gender-based violence, and lack of industrialization which could shape South Sudan’s socio-economic and political fate for the betterment of its citizens.
“Lack of accountability, unsustainable agriculture, injustice and infringement of human rights in independent South Sudan all need to be corrected if the country is to reach its destiny,” read part of the abstract.
The Africa We Want calls for the United States of Africa that is free from corruption, with good governance that creates a free trade area and allows free movement of goods and people within the continent.
The Africa and the Next Generation discusses how both the current and future generations ought to be self-reliant and make use of their potentials.
Kan who studied Bsc Honors Degree in Human Resource Management at Midlands State University said he is a fan of Pan-Africanism and its broader ideology adding that the future of the continent does not depend on look east or look west policies but rather on African solutions to African problems.
In attendance will be Botrous Thok Deng, South Sudan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Professor Victor Ngonidzashe Muzvidziwa, Vice-Chancellor of the Midlands State University, Professor Ntombizakhe Mlilo, and Gwanda State University Registrar, and books’ editor Edmore Dube.
The Africa We Want, a 120-page lengthy book is now available on American cloud computing and e-commerce platform Amazon.com, Inc. for delivery in various African countries, including South Sudan.
