Historical : The Lado Enclave was leased to King Leopold II as a personal consession for his lifetime. With his death, it was returned to British control. And the British have always blocked the Independence issue of Lado in the Sudan Central Africa .
TOPIC : THE DECOLONISATION ISSUE OF LADO IN THE WATER SHED REGION OF AFRICA STILL .
LADO ISSUE WITH SUDAN , D R CONGO AND UGANDA AS THE COUNTRY NEIGHBOURS TO LADO
REPUBLIC OF SUDAN STATE AS AN ISSUE OVER LADO
To begin wih and in the first place I am writing , I am using the Offiicial name of the STATE OF LADO , the State of Lado I am talking about is bordered by Sudan to the North , by Ethiopia and Kenya to the North – East , by Uganda to the East , by Zaire / Congo to the West and by the Central Africa Republic to the North – West . And the name Lado is the correct Identity of the people of Lado .
Take a look at the Map of Lado ( IN THE PART OF THE HISTORIC MAP OF LADO IN AFRICA ) long since established on the World Maps and please Pin or put in Browse to open to see the Map of Lado in its Geographyical position to its Neighbouring Country States sorrounding it :
The following are the Regions of Lado :
1 . ITURI REGION – ( Bordered by the Zaire / Congo to the West ) ,
2 . NILE REGION – ( Bordered by Uganda to the East ) ,
3 . TORIT REGION – ( Bordered by Sudan , Ethiopia , Kenya , and Uganda to the North – East ) ,
4 . UELE REGION – ( Bordered by Zaire / Congo and Central African Republic / CAR to the North – West ) ,
5 . YEI REGION – ( Bordered by Sudan and Central African Republic / CAR to the North and North – West ) .
The Colonial Writings refer to Lado by different names as it suits their purposes and time : Equatoria , Lado Enclave , West Nile , Haut Nil , etc—- etc — . The Turco – Egyptian Colonialists called it : The Equatoria Province of Egypt , The British ( at one time ) called it Lado Enclave , while the Belgians called it : Haut Nil . And now , the Foreign Occupying Administrations give different names to Lado as to what they wish to get after the Partition of Lado . An Objective , the Lado Political Authorities are fighting for tooth and Nail .
Lack of Information on Lado — ?
It is not true that there is no Information on / about Lado but the **** true fact is that , it seems , most of the African people and especially the African Politicians , or the Educated African , do not notice anything unless it appears on BBC or American Radio / Television ( T V ) . Unfortunately Lado Politics is not being done through the BBC or the CNN , for a number of reasons which I am not going to discuss here in this essay on Lado . But still I can say the Lado People are using their time , brains , and sacrifice as much as they can of their resources for Lado . It cannot be done by sitting and waiting for somebody to give them Money to be an Independent and Sovereign State . Many of us Africans who are seen , or regard ourselves as Politicians or Scolars or Elites should have kept open eyes , open ears , open minds to look back into the past on the question of Lado . So we lack information of Lado because few only care about Lado and for the rest Lado is not important as they don't receive Money . Yet these many people know that this Region in the Heart of Africa – Lado ( known Equatoria ) has a Political Conflict unsolved since the Juba Conference in 1947 .
Lado information has already been forwarded even to the African Countries who are surrounding Lado that , the Political Solution to the question of Lado , is the getting of Independence of Lado from Belgium and Britain . And this is being done and better to do it through peaceful ( Political ) Negotiations to avoid any more Bloodshed. And even all Liberation Movements and their Armies in Africa have been informed that Lado would like to reach such Political solution in her Region ( Lado ) through peaceful means .
The LADO Political Strategy :
In order to grasp the Lado Political System , a quick glances at the Political Stepping Stones to Lado's present difficulties on the Nile – Watershed of Africa is Required .
The Sudan ( Here I am refering to the Sudan State and inclulding South Sudan ) as an Issue over Lado :
a ) In 1927 , the British Governor General of Sudan recommended that , in order to occupy and colonise the Africans / Peoples of Lado , such as the Sudanic people of Lado , their Political Leaders ( the Agofe , the Opi – Drikulu , the Opi , Chiefs and Families ) have to be killed or exterminated .
b ) And Indeed , the British Governments took this policy seriously and practised it in the State of Lado . This in return for Lado slowed down the struggle for the Independence of Lado since 1947 . The Lado Political Authorities Concerned , have all the time to make sure that they are not killed .
