War in Sudan should be condemned
Even after the African Union and the United Nations warned the Sudan and South Sudan to steer clear from war, the two nations have decided to face it out militarily.
The President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, is on record telling off UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon to leave him alone to make an independent decision about his poverty stricken country.
President Kiir has finally made good his threat and invaded oil-rich Heglig.
This is a step that has been construed as an act of war by Sudan.
Now the two countries are at war along the border towns and this is threatening to spill to the interior of both countries.
South Sudan, having seceded from Sudan in July last year, is still languishing in poverty. The South Sudanese, who were optimistic that the independence would bring goodies, are now left high and dry because of the disagreement of the two nations that largely depend on oil for sustenance of their economies.
The two countries should note that this is the time to work towards reviving the economy rather than recruiting disillusioned youth to go to war.
The nearly two million people that have died in past wars should sober up and whatever intentions the neighbouring states may harbour even as they sort out their issues in the battlefield. The raging war should be condemned in the strongest terms possible.
