Humanity live dead and alive in a mode that is either minimal or maximum. Live is short; live however, exists in number of ways based on years it develop in size. Small bodied living lives have a life cycle ending physically earlier than big bodied. All living lives big or small have possibility to reproduce several lives.

Inside: We live our lives on energies we gained from foods we eat. It is a bad idea to think to get fat because the bigger you are in size the lengthier your life and making fat body size stronger creates strong muscles extending personal lifespan. Gaining weight after gaining control of a fat body is a step to enhance life.

Outside: Hot temperature makes us sweat while cold temperature brings burble bodies(Ndulo), however, humid temperature is humanly toxic because that makes our body doubts and have confused reaction. Humid temperature is a real danger to humanity while switching between cold and hot balances our the living lives.

Around: Anything living thing owned a piece of our world by contributing and symbions to own or give. Kill a bird, reptile, etc sufle inside a dry living tree lives comes off that.

Conclusion: Livings live is living dead alive and so is their reverse.

Luo in general are capable to handle their security and had done so from their very beginning. Spears, Shields, Nets, Leke(batul), Bows, arrows, Abucela(Listic) and Ochokobo are our weapons of defence. Planes, guns(broomsticks), bombs, nuke had never been and will never bee part of our defence system in the future but any one of our neighbour or enemy known or temper with that is our current and next battle. The line is clear and had been drawn therefore, we should all be clear about it and make sure it official by all means. Transposing and double doors will have extreme consequences and so we must know that that is in their minds. The advantage is that we all have poor competition, pure lives, formidable cultures and directly and indirectly have won't have fight and wars.

Marriage is a mandatory culture to Africans. It is a social status that is earned by working not achieved by what you owned. Wealth, possessions, etc contribute to your outreach to how many wives you marry. Keeping many wives over the years has proven though because of human demands and resources available. In many cases, you do have to strike balance or make sure all is satisfied with decisions, choices, ideas that you come up with as head of the family. In the 21st centuries, they too want to make decisions, choices and come up with ideas about because they are part of family and have full responsibility of anything that goes on in the family. African social status has sifted because some of them have grown richer and doing things becomes a union engaging everyone at same time-walking, shopping etc now need be done together. Few of them who are wealthy want to dominate social lives which can become a worrying issues to the rest giving headache to relatives of family and can lead to separation if it gets extreme. Now, that is an dreading because of amount of resources that they - family wants to accumulate. Imagine a Lopit talking marriage to Alur that makes lives not abusive however, culturally a talkative topic of the day, week, month etc, but it could be a done deal. Africa need to be free and maintain their marriage lives that makes social status easy, and always acceptable to all without hesitation. Africa on one hand need to copy and adopt marriage culture of other people from other regions of the world that way our priorities remain same with enough knowledge about what we do.

Like most Luo people, Ofirika came from Wau-the cultural and social city over there was then part of Sudan. We were all pastrologist and followers of Nile because the one thing that makes lives different for our livestocks. It is difficult to identify Ofirika from their neighbours because neither of them does seperate things from their colleagues. I might have told talk about these in my other notes, in the end we have come to understanding that we all owned our own lands and call them our homes. They are blessed on many occasions because their neighbours are playing friendly with - they stand with each others during time of all things being it food, social, cultural etc crisis. On many accounts, they too cultivate few crops as their ordinary alternatives to meat. With all that, Eastern spirit exists and most time better known peacefully to their neighbours. Ofirika in many ways like Luo and Ateker do act either to friendly or too niece to one another accomodating problems of one another. With Due respect, may be to them as they are to us keeping a watchful eyes over one another?

True alliance, formidable friend, and real homie who defended, fought, and calm situations with us. Ofirika are not known to many not even African leaders, institutions or researchers, but they are our neighbour. In the year 2000-2009, Luo friendship with Ofirika entered a state of defence. Ofirika Ateker, but speak Luo fluently like Atesot, and Otuho because of friendship that existed for generations. From the time of empire to now(1900-21 century) and they never revenge on us neither do they abandon us. We will keep talking about Ofirika for the next months or so.

all things that comes to mind has security word attached to it e.g. food security, water security, money security, people security, animal security, education security, relationship security etc. Security does not come simply as it sound e.g. food security seems not real, but imagine you are in Juba now then that makes it even more important to you than anyone of them. For us to be secure we must feel safe, but from who? It could also mean when you are secured then they don't feel safe. If you have a UN arm forces guiding your population, the leaders e.g. local government try to make an agreement with them that the land they are on is proposed be used by local for farming, constructing school, hospital etc. You-the local governments have already managed to bring down the bad security and people are safe and we can manage our people from here. After that work on the agreement and make sure the population is safe not just on paper, but socially they-the people are too.

During war: During war both side make sure they kill as many as they could kill to reduce strength base on number and work their hardest to shut down supply routs, resources etc. There are at least two sides of enemies with strength understanding of each other. The points they make are contrary to each other and there is in most cases no direct links, but in other cases there wild agenda still differs.

After War: Wars are both accidental and planed. When war is fought, permanent enemy is created for generations to come. War in simple term is lazy way to solve and solvable problems e.g. Land issues rules, technology, understanding, reducing wasteful developments etc; distance between death and life-no war no unnecessary deaths; Show of strength; Resistance to retain; and prove of capability. In war, one side looses and the other gains, but reversible with time. War affects and does not heal simply, but keep a growing pains, anger, agony etc for generation because of memory of lives lost, properties, developments in comparison to opponents ect, but it is an optimism generator on the other side.

Peace: Peace is a natural thing because people who are peaceful are originally that way and warmongers are always originally that way. When both becomes achievement and celebrated that is when either side start getting sceptical of it. There is also another way to look at it, when warmongers are celebrating winning wars, then the peaceful will remember their lost at war that make both sides regain. We can get back to war when either the warmongers feels threaten or stronger. When the peaceful forget about war and concentrate on peace only that will make the warmonger gain. In short, it is always good to alternate and measure what has the enemy that way we can balance things and keep the world as it is.

Things to remember

  • After war there is no forgiveness
  • War does not differ base on race or location
  • If we have competition, we always will have no wars

Let history speak for itself. Wau had been and is till the most recognised strategic place in Southern Sudan since the very existence of us. They however, lost that recognition because at the time, tribes in Wau e.g. cholo, luwo, etc were regarded as nomadic and in their book it was written most violent people. Tribes like Luwo just has their tribe name written in word and is unforgettable. The Bari speakers e.g. Bari, Kuku, Pojulu, etc where very administrative and had skills for running a government. They were also peaceful in many ways and tend to solve their problems on table, but most of the Nilotic e.g. Luo and Ateker were warriors. They were fierce and always sceptical of insecurity not only that, they were always defensive because they were mostly farmers and so the nomadic(highland) of the time e.g. Nard, Dinka, Nuba etc would come for their water, destroy their crops, and most of all displace them. Europe don't like that because it seems same mindset and so are deemed dangerous. In the history of Luo and other Ateker, they fought a hard defensive war especially Acholi, Otuho, Lokoro, Lango etc. Juba then became the commercial and hence the capital now, but are the Bari speakers of then equals the Bari speakers of now? One thing we all have to know for sure is that, Juba won't be our capital city in the decade or so.

If you once had empire, kingdom, chiefdom, top leadership etc in your society, culture, country, etc you will always regain it back when you lost it. Major problem is when you cracked from inside - your people fighting each other. In only few decades, Pari has come off strong again and in many ways may regain Juba.

Juba: Many of you complains about Juba now especially the youth. I had been there myself and I walked that footstep. Nearly three decades ago(I was about 2 - 3 yrs old), Juba big businesses were still operated by Egyptians. In the 1980 particularly people before us remember the hanger, danger, in fights, etc happening in Juba. Anyanya one had just finished their battles. I remember going to the Egyptians' shops discussing and making friendship with with them during that. Many of them became my ultimate friends and even offer me any kind of food for free in spite of prizes of that time. I could speak to them like one of them and convince them like I worked with them before. I didn't have to do that let alone do I know what I was doing, but I have a feeling even now that I was working for my people and country. After that my family put me on a bike and dropped me back to the village without any opinion. I just found myself in the rural but caught up so fast and started straight away from there.

Sudan: Juba had been a city even before Anyanya. It was always remembered as a strategic place in Sudan. May I also tell you that, as true Africans you should be happy and proud that we have the current Khartoum government in office. Take a glance at the administration carefully, I guess what you will see is brothers and sisters now, not the Juwa abiet of the time.

South Sudan: South Sudan is now where we were After Milton Obote time. It was a time when we were cut off from central management system. You are left with guesses, no clear path, miss understanding and most time end up fighting and mind you during both, I went through them and I know what they are like.

Caution: Avoid thinking, associating, and working for money, earning big money, having a house, and owning things. You MUST think about what is needed to you as an individual then you can proceed to tribes and later government. Government should always be last on your mind. It is difficult to have a relative that asks for money, help, support etc especially to working members of that tribe than relatives who always work hard to defend their working men and women outside their society because doing that leaves the working with free options to what need be done with what they achieved. That way, you will always have security of your relative in your hand. Now, think exactly like that but put yourself as a government or government administrator. What would you do? Why not do it now?

One of the battles we fought and will never forget for generations to come. This battle will be remembered as wat obendo. On Luo side was the LRA(Lord resistance army), Burundi(hutu) and Uganda(Ankole) called M23 and central Africa republic called Mai Mail. The three groups defended and attacked whenever it is necessary. They attack when their public is endangered and defend when they are under attacked. This started at the time of what was called small mines of the East because leadership started to show some capitalist culture in Africa. In 2004 and 2005, Luo was too strong and could invade khartoum, central Africa republic, chat, and Congo at same time without any problem. Then the European came in support of both Mai Main and M23 pumping in ebola in LRA head quarter and sending in men on boot to help both M23 and Mai Mai. Luo was reduced and slowed drastically, that gave way to the other groups. We needed to regroup, this time with politic at forefront and defence following. Khartoum and Eastern Congo accepted but we are left with the rest of Congo and central Africa. Our defence had to punch holds to penetrate to enemy who are now 6 times stronger than we are. We had to have a system in place to manurer the battles. We engage all public, officials, the defence and anything usable thing we owned. That took us half a decade or so and now we are here. There is till a lot to be done even though we feel safe and secured. We now need to turn our attentions to watch our backs because that is where our next problems will meet us. Until then, battles shall never stop but tactics, logics, and intelligent system have to adopt as fast as possible and always try to counter and analyse them as fast and soon as possible. Last decades was defence, next may be education, health, development etc. Whatever it might be, keep your nose at their tail.

Clean in Acholi or Luo is the newest game ever played. In the old days we had the most worrying, dogie, dangerous and evil music you can find in our culture. I am not old enough to fully educated you on this matter, but I witnessed, danced, played instrument, organised and got involved in it from about 4 years old to 7. I later also got involved in the weaker version which is only one percent of the original. La Rwenya comparison is the current western Rock music including all acts. It was and is what we had learned and live with those days. All I see is now pretenders and weakest version off that popping out.
