Death sentence against alleged plotter

“A former South African colonel, William John Endley, has reportedly been sentenced to death by a court in South Sudan on charges of plotting against Salva Kiir’s government.”–http://allafrica.com/stories/201802230800.html

A week ago Dr Machar’s spokesman was also sentenced to death–http://www.africanpoliticsandpolicy.com/?p=13310

Though we have no reason to dispute either ruling -though human rights organizations have bitterly criticized the death sentence for Machar’s spokesman- but we are not sure that distributing death sentences with such generosity is going to solve the problems of a country where  violence, crimes, abuses and death have been generously supplied by government and rebel forces at the orders of so called leaders.
