Collo (Shilluk) Global Action condemns and rejects Kiir’s E.O. #36/2015 aimed at disintegrating & annexing the Collo Kingdom


October 11, 2015.


The Collo Global Action (CGA) has been following the new political developments in South Sudan with great and alarming concerns, especially the Republican Order Number 36/2015 that purports to establish 28 unconstitutional new states in South Sudan with effect from first week of November 2015. The malicious Order that was read over SSTV by President Salva Kiir himself is aimed at disintegrating the Collo Kingdom and grabbing the historical Collo ancestral lands in the east bank of White Nile and along Sobat River to the advantage of the Padang Sectional Dinka Alliance who have been influencing Salva Kiir for that purpose.

The Republican Order is a serious violation to the Transitional Constitution of South Sudan (TCSS) and a shameful dishonoring of the recently signed peace agreement in Addis Ababa on 17th August and also in Juba on 26th August 2015, and which has been ratified by the National Legislature. If these gross violations were conducted elsewhere, it would have caused Salva Kiir his Presidency seat immediately because he would have been asked to resign or be impeached for good.

The Collo (Shilluk) Kingdom has been existing in the region for many centuries, located on both sides of White Nile and Sobat Rivers. Historically, the Egyptian, the Turkish, the British, the French and the Arabs colonialists didn’t manage to disintegrate the Collo Kingdom but recognized and cooperated with it. Who is then Salva Kiir Mayardit, Padang Sectional Dinka Alliance and the entire Council of Jieng Elders to have a victory over the well-known Collo People?

The Collo royal people herby condemn and reject in the strongest terms possible the newly announced states in Upper Nile called Eastern Nile State and Western Nile State. We call upon President Salva Kiir to behave himself like a civilized and intelligent President of a Republic and immediately nullify his unfortunate unilateral and unlawful decision of disintegrating and grabbing the Collo People’s lands.

We can’t imagine an insanity from a President of a Republic who co-habited a beautiful Collo lady from Doleib Hill in the Eastern Bank of the White Nile and had grown-up children from her, to issue an unconstitutional Order that gives away the ancestral land of the Mother of his Children. This is painfully terrible!

If President Kiir has not yet known it softly the time he served in Malakal as a Sudan Military Intelligence Officer that the Collo Nation are the strongest Majority tribe in Upper Nile, and that it is very important to respect the land rights and feelings of the In-laws, perhaps he will know it the hardest way very sooner than later.

We call on the entire Collo people to urgently mobilize themselves and unite in order to protect and defend the Great Ancestral Nyikango Land and Kingdom from aggressors and invaders as we have got to understand it now that the oppressor has no color. Whatsoever the case, we shall win because victory is in our pursuit of truth and dignity.

Long Live Collo Kingdom.

Long Live the Republic of South Sudan

    By peaceful means or war we shall win. Chollo youth, be not frightened by savages an uncouth. They have no proper military training. Don’t they know that we are the Jews of South Sudan?

  2. Gieth Chol Deng says:

    To those Chollo Kingdom:
    If we say (Jiluo,Jaang and Nuer) are the same mother and the same father. Why do others is not belong to there.
    Upper Nile is the main Land last migration for Jieng move out there to Kuong or Bar el gazal, due to floots, starvation and slave raiders later. what was the reason why name lokjang and Lokchollo was created? Chollo people loyal to King are not buried in the East. Jieng,Apuny and Anyuak are the one that are belong to the East side of the Nile and is well known in the history.

    I do not know if chollo will go to Nuba, Jieng will drive them to Nuba North if they which. Jieng can take some Jieng elements in Chollo people. The land of Ayueldit is getting claim by Chollo? Ayueldit Land is from Makuar to Mading Bor East of Nile. Jieng have two Deng, Deng South and Deng North of old Kuc.

    If chollo could ask descendant Awin Yor peoplel,would help Chollo know the old Land dispute. There was a deal in the past between Ngok East Bank and Chollo West Bank border, ask your Chollo elders. The centre of River Nile is our Border from West Bank to East Bank. If you go farther West again, you will find another Ngok of Ruweeng at your back. Chollo must think twice and historically, and not letting young Chollo dies for
    war that is not winnable.

    Border from Padang North of Makal to Mading Bor is old name was “Deeng” after old name of “Deeng” we left in North Sudan. If Chollo does not tell young people the true history of the land, they will dies more and at the end will lost it.
    Apadang North Makal did not went to Gong de Ruweeng. Rut and Thoi did not all went Ruweeng areas for Chollo to claim their land. Ayueldit was burried in Pangak,and old Thon Alual places are the high places occupy by chollo and Nuer in the East Bank of the Nile.
