The New Nation has a meaningful and warm National Anthem

National Anthem of the Republic of South Sudan

Oh God! We praise and glorify you, For your grace on South Sudan, Land of abundance, Upholds us united in peace and harmony.

Oh motherland! We rise! Raising flag with the guiding star, And sing songs of freedom with joy, For Justice, liberty and prosperity, Shall for evermore reign.

Oh great patriots! Let us stand, in silence and respect, Saluting our martyrs whose blood, Cemented our national foundation, We vow to protect our nation.

Oh God, bless South Sudan.

THE BIRTH OF A NEW NATION – REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN
 9th July 2011

API PHOTO: Chief editor Sammy Korir, African Press International addressing Sudanese community in Norway after the proclamation of the Independence of South Sudan on 9th.July 2011

Speech by Chief editor Sammy Korir, African Press International, during South Sudan Independence celebrations in Oslo, Norway

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Those of us from Kenya who have shared your suffering as a major refugee host Nation wish you well on this very important occasion, the birth of the Republic of South Sudan.
 
In 1987 in Norway, I was driving to Karihaugen near Furuset at the outskirts of Oslo. That which happened that day changed my life. And that is why I have also known most of you who are here today.
 
A young man at the time by the name Daniel Wuor Joak was walking on the road towards the same area I was heading to. I waved and he waved back as I drove past him. I stopped, reversed to where he was and asked him where he was going to. He was going to the same place as I was. I gave him a lift. Later it turned out that we were neighbors. We exchanged our telephone contact as we parted. After knowing that he was from South Sudan and I from Kenya, we kept close contact.
 
What came to be, later on, is a long story that I will not discus today.
 
However, let me say the following. It was not long before we became friends. After sometime, his wife joined him from Africa and my family and his became closer, visiting one another almost on a daily basis. Important of all I also discovered he had a mission for his country. He wanted his people to be free from the oppressors. After a few months, I decided to be of assistance. We met most of the evenings and discussed the struggle for freedom for the Southerners.
 
I jotted down points discussed and later typed them down, print out, meet him the next day and he posts the documents to the destinations of his choice. This was the beginning of a struggle from my part for the people of Southern Sudan. Soon after, the SPLM/ SPLA discovered his activities in Norway and appointed him SRRA representative in the country. Two years past and the SPLM/ SPLA discovered that there was a Kenyan helping Daniel in Norway. That Kenyan was me, and that earned me an official appointment by SPLM/SPLA as SRRA representative in Norway, joining Daniel. We started to work as two official representatives for the movement’s humanitarian wing.
 
We decided to strategize our work well. We made visits to Norwegian organizations and Government offices seeking to be listened to and help to be given to projects in South Sudan. That was a success.  
To help the needy in the South, we organized a collection of funds in the streets of Oslo. SPLM/SPLA became stronger and stronger in Scandinavia. SPLM/SPLA leaders including the late hero Dr John Garang visited Norway and strengthened the working relationship.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, later in the years that followed, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation broadcasted a one hour film in Norwegian language on the suffering of the Southerners. It was a very painful film to watch.
 
We taped and translated the whole program to English and made many copies, and had them mailed to many leaders worldwide. One of our important targets at the time was the former Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi, a man who I was close to, having worked for his government as a senior Administrator years back. I contacted Moi and requested him to address a press conference after getting the translation and watching the film. Moi had never held a live press conference during his presidency, so we were not sure he would accept to do so.
 
To our positive surprise, Moi called a press conference and took on the plight of our brothers and sisters of South Sudan. We felt we had achieved our goal of making the suffering of the South Sudanese people to be placed even more in the world map using the film and a presidential international press conference. The Press conference had an impact and that made Kenyans to engage more than ever in the struggle for the freedom of the people of South Sudan. His press conference made it easier for me and Daniel to get meetings with leaders in Norway in short notice whenever we send in a request.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, As things progressed, we got a delegation from Southern Sudan led by Mr Daniel Koat Mathews and Rebecca Joshua the wife of Lam Akol. They were attending a conference in Sweden when they decided to visit Norway. We organized meetings for them with Norwegian Peoples Aid, Norwegian Church Aid and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Those meetings were successful because the Norwegian leaders who held meetings with them got first hand information about the South Sudan situation.
 
After the meetings, things moved even faster. Mr Daniel Koat Mathews former Governor in Southern Sudan who had relocated from Sudan to Sweden, Daniel and I, became regular visitors to the same offices to give them a brief on then ongoing suffering of the Southern Sudanese people.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen, when we thought things were going well, shockingly a set back struck. That was the split in the SPLM/SPLA. Why do I say the split was a set back and a shock to me and Daniel?
 
I say this because the split went along tribal lines. The two largest tribes in the South, the Dinkas and the Nuer chose to be on opposite sides and for a time forgetting the oppressor in the North. The many smaller tribes chose to fit into either of the groups. When this happened it made it a little bit difficult for my working relationship with Daniel because he joined the break-away group led by Riek Machar, a Nuer and yet for me both groups were no different due to my non-tribal belonging.
 
Soon after, in our meetings, Daniel and I, agreed to talk to John Luke, a Nuer, who was then in the UK and Lam Akol, A shiluk, who at the time was in Nairobi asking them to act as frontline leaders and unite the two groups. Our effort on this did not succeed.
 
It did not take long before Mr Kwer Aguer Manyiel came into the scene. He became the official representative for the SPLM/SPLA’s main faction led by the late Dr. Garang, while Daniel represented the break-away group led by Riek machar. Although we now had two separate groups in Norway, a good thing that happened though, was the fact that Daniel, Kwer and I, worked together in the struggle in an amicable manner.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, The SPLM/SPLA split prolonged the struggle. It was a setback. The Northerners benefited from the split because instead of a strong united SPLM/ SPLA, a split SPLM/ SPLA used their time fighting one another in the South instead of concentrating to fight their then oppressor and enemy in the North.
 
Kenya did the best it could for the struggle. Kenya, together with the international community finally enabled for the SPLM/SPLA and Sudan government leaders in the North, to enter into an agreement, “The CPA.” Those of you who were in Norway when the CPA was signed remember well that I was privileged to join you and be allowed to address you alongside the United States Embassy representatives in Norway.
 
We were with you 6 years ago to celebrate the signing of the CPA and at the time, all of us had high hopes that one day the CPA will bear fruit. The CPA has yielded fruit, setting you free from bondage after the yoke you have carried on your shoulders, to the pleasure of the Northerners, for too long has been removed by the power of the referendum vote creating a new Nation in our Continent of Africa.
 
The North has been and still is strong when it comes to sophisticated weapons, but as you can see, peaceful referendum vote a few months ago has set you free, becoming a free Nation, leaving them in the North in a sad mood for having lost you to freedom, after mistreating you for decades as if you were their slaves.
  
I am glad that Kwer is part of the South Sudan Embassy in Norway. I will always be grateful to the two gentlemen, Daniel Wuor Joak and Kwer Aguer Manyiel for the work they did and still do for South Sudan. This will not be complete if I do not thank Joseph Sekwat who was also part of the group actively involved in the work we did in Oslo. I am also grateful that after the struggle became history, we are still good friends.
 
My thanks go to my lovely wife Mary for the supports she accorded to me when I was working for the people of South Sudan as SPLM/SPLA appointed SSRA representative for humanitarian services in Norway. Thanks also to the wives of Daniel Wuor Joak, Kwer Aguer Manyiel and Joseph Sekwat for the support they gave to their husbands in the struggle. I also extend my sincere thanks to all South Sudanese women for the support that they gave to their husbands during the struggle and the care they exercised in their homes so that their children could feel safe when their fathers were busy in the struggle away from home.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen, mine today, on behalf of myself and the people of Kenya is to wish for you the love, peace, unity and abundance of success that you deserve now and in the years to come. God bless your neighbors, including Kenya, so that all neighbors may cherish and enjoy a fruitful relationship.
 
God bless South Sudan and keep your leaders away from any kind of corruption that may try to sneak into leadership ranks. May your nation progress for the good of all of you as you start meeting challenges ahead while you govern your country.
 
God bless us all as we continue to celebrate. Thank you.
