For those people who have witnessed the massacre killings of the Nuer people in Juba will without hesitation call for International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate Kiir and his Government officials and make them answerable for the atrocities in the entire Republic of South Sudan.
Because people like Kiir himself, VP Wani Igga and foreign minister Marial Benjamin were the very people who were sending comments that incite the violence in Juba and even in Unity State, Jonglei and Malakal.
President Kiir was telling people that those of Dr Machar and his groups plotted a (failed coup) and that word alone annoyed the supporters of Dr Machar to rise up and begin looking for Dinkas in Unity, Jonglei and Malakal respectively and he (Kiir) was also advocating for 1991 which was the misunderstanding between Dr John Garang De Mabior and Dr Machar.
Moreover, some like Wani was just fueling the current crisis of the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) by saying that Dr Machar and his supporters have no support from the people in the republic of South Sudan because, if his word was realistic, how come the three States that are the heart of South Sudan were captured by the soldiers loyal to Dr Machar and his supporters?
Someone like Marial Benjamin was talking like some one who was protecting his position because what he said over the BBC yesterday Wednesday was a pure lie that does not need attention from any one.
Marial was just known as a political survival that is very weak in the administration and etcetera and people have labelled him as some one whose brain had been blocked up by alcohol because whatever he said has no basis at all in South Sudan context.
I had been analyzing the leadership of the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) and Kiir’s way of leading the people of the Republic of South Sudan for long time and some elements within South Sudan have taken me wrongly which is not the case and I hope right now my analyses have become the realities and factual.
The ongoing crisis that have killed good number of Nuer Community in Juba is an indication of the failed leadership that is accompanied by a groups of crocks that lack intellectual dynamism and good will about the people of South Sudan.
However, having been in Juba for the one week when fighting started from the Presidential Republican Guards in juba on the 15th of December 2013, people thought that it was an army issue that does not need civilians but more interestingly, the soldiers loyal to Kiir Mayardit started killing the Nuer from door to door.
Many people were gathered in the houses and killed automatically without any reasons and their main agenda was to eliminate the Nuer which will never happen in the history of the world and the South Sudan at large.
Places where Nuer people were killed like Chicken:
On Monday the 16th of December 2013, the President of South Sudan announced over the Electronic Media that all civilians should remain in their houses from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm on Tuesday.
People thought may be no one will kill one another and people accepted the decision of the President and citizens remained in their places without movement.
Then, surprisingly, soldiers loyal to the President Kiir began looking for Nuer in their houses and killing them one by one which completely confused the whole situation in the Country.
And from Monday the 16th of December 2013, Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th, these were the times they were killing civilians from Nuer and if they found you, you are a Nuer with some marks on the face, you will be killed.
They also reached to the extent of asking people in the Dinka Language and once you don’t know Dinka Language, you will be killed instantly.
Nuer people were killed in Gudele, 107, Manga, Korwilliam, New site and Jabel Kujur where my own relatives were killed and I was captured and taken to prison for some days in Gida (Military Hqs) near where fighting started in Juba.
I graciously thank God Almighty that I have survived from President Kiir Military Intelligence (MI) in the Juba Genocide after they killed three of my relatives.
While I was under arrest for the whole week in SPLA General Quarters (Gida), thank God, that the Intelligence disagreed with each another on whether to kill me or not. They couldn’t agree so I was released and right now I’m out of South Sudan.
More articles are on the way, just fell free to contact me through my email to explain to you the incident because I was in juba and I have seen it through my two Eyes.
