Editorial :The Fifth Column Issue Revisited
In our yesterday's editorial we said that our main goal now is to rollback the aggression; but at the same we must have a clear strategy beyond that action in dealing with the Republic of South Sudan.
We hinted that the SPLM/A represented a fifth column in the recent incidents considering that its elements were spread all over the northern states with complete freedom in moving.
The so-called SPLM/N leaders were in contact with the enemies in the south giving intelligence reports and monitoring the movements of our army.
We urged the government not to forget that the CPA availed the chance for the SPLM/A elements to penetrate in the civil, security and military services
We were sure that those elements continued their services (particularly the northerners) in the government institutions; hence they are able to be near the decision-makers a matter that helps in getting all security and intelligence information for the benefit of the enemies in the south.
We concluded by calling on our officials to monitor those elements and their contacts.
It is only few hours when infiltrated news articles affirmed that the Ministry of Interior issued a resolution dismissing all the southern students in the Police college because on the background of their celebrating SPLA occupation of Higlig.
According to the Police Information Office, Minister of Interior, Engineer Ibrahim Mahmoud issued a resolution dismissing all the southern students in the Police College after they organized a ceremony in the College premises celebrating the occupation of Higlig by the SPLA during which they cheered calling on the SPLA to continue occupying Sudan up to Khartoum.
We believe that one of our officials' refined dealing with southerners is allowing their students in the Police College to continue their study and training and nobody exposed them after south Sudan secession.
But their celebratory conduct necessitated taking firm measure by dismissing them.
To sum it up we still insist that our government should work out a plan to conduct a comprehensive survey among southerners staying in the north along with the northerners who are members of the so-called SPLM/A.
