Dear Editor – The skirmish of truth telling is now besought. Only folks with the guts and gumption can upsurge above all else and testify all the untold facades that brewed the ethnic crises. Stand a man of scrupulousness and not spinelessness.
It would now appear that someone has something pivotal to say for the sake of genuine, perpetual peace in this sovereign nation of Solomon Islands, bragged as the happy isles with 95% of its population avowed Christians.
A recent media implication by Leni, Sikua and others against PM Sogavare has been stiffly refuted by the latter.
The somewhat mudslinging show in paper and ink just to fill up time and space in media bombardment is good belated reading.
But will it divulge any evocative proposition and tangible redress? only time will tell.
The hunt for peaceful co-existence in a country asserted to be under Divine guidance and rulership is a seamless narrative.
The decision by the architects and engineers of the unfortunate ethnic turmoil to do what they did can be best described as social, economic and humanitarian recklessness in a grand scale, better still an abject negligence punishable by law. It was such an unlawful, unchristian and inhuman motivation to say the least.
Someone must be held responsible. Those who masterminded the catastrophic and perilous state of affairs which apparently brought this nation to its knees must be held accountable.
PM Sogavare’s invitation to Leni and Sikua to show cause to the Police and the PM’s office with evidenced testimonies pertaining to their implications is healthy thus Sogavare must be applauded and thumbs up to him for such a bold instigation.
The ball is now in your court Leni and Sikua. Your media implication can be better strained in the fashion advocated by Sogavare. Oh what a privilege that can be.
It is a moral imperative to deal with the issues affecting the lives of innocent citizens prudently.
It is also a political imperative to find the right ingredients to gauge, propagate and ensue lasting peace.
We act reverently and look like seraphim in church on Saturdays and Sundays but do we portray and reflect the beauty of Christ’s character in our daily interactions, on other days?
We ought to fix any mismatch in our daily walk with the one who created, guided and ruled this nation and ask this question: Whose hands are ours? The hands of betrayal like Judas? The hands of denial like Peter?
The hands of cowardice like Pilate? The hands of violence like the soldiers? Or the hands of humble surrender like Jesus? Every Solomon Islander, who professed to be a Christian need to answer the forgone questions. When we put our cares in God’s hands, He puts His peace in our hearts.
True peace is an impartation. Hence unless and until we have the prince of peace in the driver’s seat our human efforts will be futile.
We will never have the peace we aspire to foster. More over unless the heart is right, the attitude is reframed our land will not be healed and so No True Peace will eventuate.
As God fearing citizens of this nation unreservedly assert the truth in all aspect our anxiety, insecurity and pessimism will be transformed into tranquility, stability, hope and positive development for a blessed nation.
And yes with God’s help we can experience unprecedented provisions. We can develop qualities that are unnatural for us, and peace, yes real peace and justice will reign over Solomon Islands.
Unless we humble ourselves we will never get promoted. If our land is not healed we will never experience an avalanche of blessings flooding Solomon Islands. YET AGAIN WHOSE HANDS ARE OUR HANDS? And who are we in every tick of the clock?
May the Prince of Peace bless Solomon Islands, to attain peace From Island to Island.
