With Odongo Odoyo

It is not for one to be noticed because he or she is playing outside the box or field. There are some of us who cannot accept to follow the rule of the game and would wish to have all bent towards their side just to suit their cause. There are some people who are not considerate of others issues. It is important to know whom you can call a friend who can stand with you at time of need. I have met some people who would want to bend the law to suit their occasion at a particular time and so long as they succeed they do not care to know. This why l will support and agree with the presidency in their first new look cabinet chaired by President Salva Kiir Mayardit, a resolution was made to have all appointees fight and bring to an end corruption which had infiltrated most public institutions in the country. It came at a time when the dreaded coronavirus is also causing havoc in most parts of the world. This also constituted one of the agenda of the cabinet meeting in which the new Minister of Health presented a request of five million USD to prepare and train health personnel who are handling this virus which was behaving like monster in the dark ready to pounce on the prey. Going with the mood and tempo of the first unity cabinet meeting, it is all obvious that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. What remains is that the citizens must be their own watchdog and always worry the appointees. They must put the latter on their toes for effective service delivery. This is what has been lacking in the country in almost the last six years when crisis was the only life one understood. This now replaced by peace and it is time for the country to move with speed to catch the lost time. This cannot be debated because everyone who has been in the country during the trying period can attest to his or her own experience. Could we support the new government to deliver? Yes, we must because at the end effective and appropriate service delivery is for the benefit of the general public. In all there must be respect for the rule of the law. Each public institution must equally respect the will of the common-man. Let it not be like those who are doing the opposite are more privileged and have protection from any quarter. All must remain equal in the eyes of the law and obey the right provisions in helping the leadership move this country forward. The law and the rule of the land should not be used selectively this time around to favour some few individuals. It is for each individual to live exemplary life and be an example to others.
