Since its independence in 1956, The Sudan is a nation riddled with wars, human rights abuses, and man-made catastrophes. The first civil war in The Sudan started in 1955, a year before The Sudan got its independence in 1956. Eventually, the first civil war ended in 1972, but the second civil war started in 1983 between the north northern Sudan ruling regimes and marginalized areas of The Sudan that include southern Sudan (now an independence country, The Republic of South Sudan), the Nuba Mountains, the Blue Nile, the Ingassana Hills, and Darfur.
Even after civil war between southern Sudan and northern Sudan ended in 2005, the civil war in The Sudan still flares in the rest of the marginalized areas of the Sudan: the Nuba Mountains, Blue Nile, and Darfur. And as matter of fact, even in an independent South Sudan, the war is still ongoing and so is the human suffering in the two Sudans.
The last civil war in The Sudan, which was mainly fought in southern Sudan, the Numba Mountains, and Blue Nile regions, killed 2.5 plus million and has caused un-quantified lost of properties and as well has inflicted tremendous indignities, suffering and human right abuses on all southern Sudanese as people.
It is an unbecoming human’s sufferings and human right abuses, committed against innocents in The Sudan, which prompted me to write these poems from experiences and from true stories of war and sufferings told by South Sudanese who have experienced grime human’s sufferings due to the civil war in The Sudan. Nearly, all South Sudanese were affected by the last twenty years old civil war and their stories drop tears.
