Late Honorable Cecilia, a victim of SPLM policies of settlement & orphanization.

BY: ELHAG PAUL, South Sudan, NOV/19/2014, SSN;

The long list of murdered Equatorians by the SPLM system continues to get longer day by day. The latest victim is Cecilia Oba Tito, a young, intelligent and promising leader of Equatoria. Cecilia hails from Morsak village near Yei. She was born in 1974 to late Tito Towongo and Araba of Kakwa tribe. From 1981 to 1987 Cecilia attended Kagelu primary school after which she went to Yei Girl’s Secondary School.

However, due to the war at the time Cecilia relocated to Uganda in 1991 where she continued with her secondary school education at Nyangilia secondary school in West Nile district. After completing her secondary education in 1994 she proceeded to do a one year course in 1996 at Nsameji National Institute where she graduated with a certificate in social development.

Armed with her qualifications Cecilia returned to South Sudan and did a lot of community work promoting human development in former Yei district. In 2005 Cecilia served as a minister in Central Equatoria government. From 2008 to 2013 Cecilia went to South Africa for further studies where she graduated with a master’s degree.

On her return home, she was elected as the first female mayor of Yei town. http://southsudantoday.net/default/2014/07/29/through-intricate-corridors-to-power-a-story-of-yei-mayor-cecilia-oba/

Painfully, Cecilia’s life was cut short to advance the Jieng expansionist policy of settlement and orphanization in Equatoria.

Upper Nile Times on 10/11/2014 reported the murder of Cecilia under the heading ‘Mayor Hon Cecilia Aba Tito dragged and gunned down over a plot of land.’ http://upperniletimes.net/south-sudan/hot-topics/mayor-hon-cecilia-aba-tito-dragged-and-gunned-down-over-a-plot-of-land/

The motive for the crime could not have been clearer. Equatorians have suffered and endured the most degrading and humiliating treatment from SPLM over the issue of their land. To put this in context, it is important to go back to the recent history of the SPLM/A.

Right from the inception of this monstrous organisation in 1983, as argued elsewhere, the SPLM/A was formed with the aim to conquer and subjugate Equatoria. The rebellion of Bor which was a product of corruption was seized on by the Jieng as a means to avenge Kokora.

Kokora itself was a reaction of the Equatorians to the unruly behaviour of the Jieng under the leadership of Abel Alier in the regional government of South Sudan during the reign of General Jaafar Mohamed Nimeiri in the late 1970s. Please see ‘Fudging the issue – President Kiir and Corruption in RSS’ http://www.southsudannewsagency.com/opinion/articles/fudging-the-issue-president-kiir-and-corruption-in-rss and Jacob Lupai’s articles on the subject in South Sudan Nation and South Sudan News Agency websites.

When SPLM/A ventured into Equatoria, it treated the people brutally as if they were not South Sudanese brothers and sisters. It killed more people and raped more women and young girls than at any time in the entire history of South Sudan.

From early 1990s, ironically it was common to hear people in Equatoria preferring the Arabs to the Jieng because of the rampant atrocities meted on the people.

During the war, the Jieng soldiers routinely displaced Equatorians from their homes in their villages under gun point. This continued until 2005 when the Comprehensive Peace Agreement was concluded.

After the CPA land grab became the order of the day with Equatorians frequently murdered without any accountability, for example, the disappearance of engineer John Lewis. Often, the Jieng boldly and promptly declare their intention to settle all over Equatoria. They refer to Equatoria as a Jieng colony.

A certain Deng Ajak on 13th August 2014 had this to say to a certain Ben Tombe: “Ben Tombe, let me remind you slaves don’t talk like that to the masters. Dog without tooth? You are colonized remember? Is it dog without tooth that colonized you or us Dinka, the hero tribe in South Sudan? Just for your information colonization is not over yet. Those of you who don’t want to respect our right to colonize will very soon have no where to put their heads. We colonized Bari Speakers, Zande, Kakua, Madi, Taposa, Acholi, Lotuka and every single tribe in Equatoria and Western Bahar el Ghazal. We will continue to neutralize you people until you diminished. It is true you people are not humans. You don’t have the right, we do. Clement Wani Konga is misleading you today, but if we want tomorrow he will disappear. He talked about no one will sit on the heads of Equatorian, do you people really are human? do you think you have any home left? There is not Equatorian family which have never given birth to a Dinka. If being Gay is to be legalized today, all Equatorian men will marry to Dinka men. Even today almost all the servants in Dinka homes every where in the country are Equatorians too. You feel ashamed, Ben Tombe.”

Please see the comments on this article, ‘Angry Security Council visiting Nairobi for South Sudan sanctions talk’ http://www.southsudannation.com/angry-security-council-visiting-nairobi-for-s-sudan-sanctions-talks/

Indeed they (Dinka) are in every nook and cranny of Equatoria with their cattle terrorizing the locals to realize this objective. Nobody in Equatoria is against the Jieng coming to live in Equatoria, but this needs to be done through the right channel following the law of the land and not through thuggery and abuse of state power.

Now, Cecilia, a promising daughter of Equatoria has become a victim of this heinous policy of the Jieng. But the murder of Cecilia must not be seen from this angle only as it also fulfills another horrendous policy of the Jieng which is to render Equatoria leaderless: orphanization.

As already pointed out, the Jieng desperately want to control Equatoria and its people and this goes back to the first Anyanya war of liberation. From 1983 Dr John Garang cleverly adopted the undeclared policy of destroying Equatorian leaders in order for the Jieng to prevail.

Equatoria had to be made an orphan for the Jieng to control it.

The literature on social control and domination posits that for any powerful group to exercise their power in order to have control over any other group depends on their ability to render the targeted group leaderless. Without this, it is almost impossible to succeed in colonising any people.

This is why the imperialists and colonialists in the yester century destroyed indigenous leaders in their colonies and replaced them with handpicked leaders honed to serve their interest.

The SPLM has consistently since its birth worked to destroy Equatoria leadership. In the bush, capable Equatorians were not recognized and promoted in the forces even when they have all the necessary qualifications.

Deliberately, they were kept in the rank and file to be led by illiterate and incapable Jieng officers such as the likes of President Salva Kiir.

Those whom they could not control whether in the forces or civilians were brutally murdered. For example, Peter Kidi, Luka Kpakaciro, Col. Martin Kejivura, John Nambu, Didinga chief, Acholi chief, Madi chiefs and so on.

Prominent Equatorian leaders like Bishop Paride Taban and late Dr Samson Kwaje were slapped literally by Kuol Manyang Juok and others for no good reason but to humiliate them in front of their people reducing them to nothing.

These acts in themselves not only erode authority but have a huge psychological effect in how these respectable people would view themselves and in turn how others view them. This was deliberately done to make Equatorians feel helpless in order to submit to Jieng.

From 2005 the SPLM targeted the would-be future leaders of Equatoria and they set out to kill them. For example, the Equatorian police officers murdered in Yambio, the doctor murdered in Yei, the two new graduates from Makerere murdered in Maridi over the issue of federalism recently and now Cecilia.

The common factor in all these cases is that these eliminated young lives possessed acumen and have demonstrated promising leadership skills and qualities. In addition, all those cases have not been investigated and allowed to fizzle out with the killers roaming the streets in contempt of the people.

No accountability and no justice!!!!

The destruction of these Equatorians who would have been future leaders is met by constant training and promotion of young Jieng to positions of power.

The ministry of education discriminatively sends young Jieng abroad for training using state resources while obstructing the other tribes from receiving the same service.

The purpose is Jieng investment in education to build future leadership capability that will allow them to dominate South Sudan for generations to come. Their formula is: kill the skilled Equatorians and replace the same with Jieng and over time Equatoria will be properly subjugated and settled.

The impact of these evil Jieng policies if not stopped will have grave consequences for Equatoria in less than two decades from now.

The immediate consequence which is seen now is that they have almost succeeded to decide who can lead Equatoria and not who Equatorinas want as their leaders of choice.

So, in a sense the Jieng have taken the power of decision from the Equatorians which means Equatorians basically are subjects. Here the red light should be flashing to any concerned Equatorian to think of the future.

The relentless killing of skilled Equatorian persons and prospective leaders without corresponding training to replace the lost would-be-leaders due to: 1) deliberate marginalisation in education, 2) pauperisation – the inability to afford educational fees, means that there is a constant reduction of talents and skills in Equatoria.

The net effect will be the re-stratification of South Sudan social groups with Equatoria turned into an underclass, a group without leaders and educated people to protect the community and their lands.

Should the Jieng succeed in this policy, it will directly feed into their settlement plan because powerless people without leaders can not protect themselves and their land such as the case of the Aborigines in Australia and the Indians in the Americas.

Given the danger facing Equatoria now, SPLM/A needs to be stopped. The key to halting this deadly plan lies with Equatorians and it is a simple one.

First Equatorians need to desert the SPLM to deal a mortal blow to the Jieng power base in South Sudan.

Secondly, they need to follow their true leaders who no doubt have plans to stir the whole country away from the ongoing catastrophe.

Though the murder of Cecilia might have been done by few people from the ‘born to rule’ for their personal gain, the force behind its implementation comes from a policy that advances the interest of an entire group: settlement and orphanization of Equatoria.

The whole Jieng ethnic group benefits from this barbarism in terms of depleting skilled Equatorian people and also in terrorizing the people to deepen control over Equatoria which surely constitutes an aggression on Equatoria.

Cecilia’s murder is not only a political homicide case, but it is also a case of violence against women. Men in South Sudan generally are uncomfortable with women leading them or women in position of authority.

The fact that the accepted policy that women must occupy twenty five percent of positions across the board in South Sudan government has not been implemented is due to the male-centric attitude that have long permeated the South Sudanese society.

The suffering of women, especially Equatorian women under the SPLM system is heart breaking. The Jieng are taking liberties with Equatorian women simply to humiliate them.

For example, working Equatorian women are daily subjected to threats of sackings and unemployment if they refuse to have intimate (sexual) time with the illiterate ‘born to rule’ placed as their bosses. Other women, especially the morally principled ones face threats of death.

The Jieng have gone as far as to design something called I.I.B. which means interview in bed. If a woman applies for a job, she is likely to be subjected to this degrading and humiliating process.

The worse case scenario which people do not want to talk about due to shame is the forceful rape of mothers in front of their husbands and children by Jieng soldiers. This happens frequently in Equatoria.

The victims need to speak out about these crimes to remove any shame or stigma attached to it. Keeping quiet allows the assailants to continue with their crimes without the prospect of accountability. Equatorians need to support such families as a duty to help them recover from their traumas.

The gruesome murder of Cecilia symbolizes two things. First, the intense hate towards women. For if it was not the case why did the murderers abuse the body of the late? Cecilia being an Equatorian, intelligent and a woman combined all the elements hated by the the Jieng.

The brutal murder is to send a message to all Equatorian women that they either submit or they face the consequences.

Secondly, Cecilia is a symbol of resistance. Her personal fight to protect her property is one of the cases that make the millions of cases of land grab in Equatoria.

Therefore, she is the embodiment of Equatoria’s struggle against the Jieng policy of land grab and forceful settlement.

As a woman, that must have come across to her murders as an affront.

Thirdly, even if Equatorians are members of the ruling party the SPLM, they are not protected. If they stand up to the system they will be kidnapped and murdered like Cecilia. They are only there to be used to advance Jieng’s interest and once they are not needed they will unceremoniously be disposed of.

Sadly, no prominent woman has come out openly to condemn the gruesome murder of Cecilia. Even Rebecca Nyandeng who masquerades as a leader has failed to advance the cause of sisterhood.

Indeed, tribalism has taken deep root in South Sudan. Were Cecilia to be a Jieng, the media, Jieng Council of Elders and the Jieng SPLM machine would have been roaring with its loudest voice condemning the barbarity of the crime and asking for justice.

But since it the Jieng machine operating its well laid out policies of settlements and oprhanization, it goes eerily quiet.

Will Cecilia get justice? Not easy to answer given the pattern of similar crimes committed against Equatoria. However, justice may come to all the victims of SPLM’s policies through other means in the future. Ryszard Kapuscinski in his book, ‘Shah of the Shahs,’ shines some light on such means. Here, he argues:

“It is authority that provokes revolutions. Certainly, it does not do so consciously. Yet its style of life and way of ruling finally become a provocation. This occurs when a feeling of impunity takes root among the elite. We are allowed anything, we can do anything. This is a delusion, but it rests on a certain rational foundation. For a while it does indeed look as if they can do whatever they want.

Scandal after scandal and illegality after illegality go unpunished. The people remain silent, patient, wary. They are afraid and do not yet feel their own strength. At the same time, they keep a detailed account of the wrongs, which at one particular moment are to be added up.

The choice of that moment is the greatest riddle known to history. Why did it happen on that day, and not on another? Why did this event, and not some other, bring it about? After all, the government was indulging in even worse excesses only yesterday, and there was no reaction at all. “What have I done?” asks the ruler, at a loss. “What has possessed them all of a sudden?” This is what he has done. He has abused the patience of the people.” (Kapuscinski 1985, p105 Kindle version)

Kapuscinski wrote his book in the mid 1980s to tell about his experience of the Iranian revolution of late 1970s. But the above quote since then has been vindicated in Tunisia, Burkina Faso and many other places. Nobody expected a radical change in Tunisia and Burkina Faso at the time.

It came as a complete surprise to the Tunisian and Burkinabe rulers with Mohamed Bouazizi setting himself on fire in a market and the Burkinabe masses setting the parliament on fire. The rest is history.

While the Jieng terror machine concentrates on its war with Riek, the real problems are in Juba. It demise will come from within and not without. For three decades they have abused and terrorized the people.

Their main weapon: fear, is losing its power to subjugate. Soon or later they will be seen fleeing with their system in tatters. It is then that true accountability for their excesses will be appropriately addressed.

Finally, as Cecilia is a victim of long practised policies of SPLM/A to promote Jieng settlement and orphanization in Equatoria, it is absolutely important for Equatoria to not let Cecilia’s death be just another statistic.

Cecilia stood up against both policies in her life. She never shied away from leading and she personally fought the land grabbers though she lost her life. Cecilia should be kept alive by Equatoria government naming a road in each of the Central Equatoria major towns and also by naming a land mark building in Juba in her name. This should ensure that the murderers’ intent to destroy her comes to naught.

    Paul,
    You aren’t far away from those who murdered the former mayor of Yei. People like you, who are the champions of chaos, did this evil act. They killed Cecilia because of her non-tribal political leadership in Yei. They want her position to implement their tribal agendas.
    Yeah, there is nothing new in what you’re saying. It is a routine in your cycle of tribal politics that you commit murders, and it is okay to find scapegoats.

    Dear Mr.Paul Alhag:

    In this article of yours of now,I totally do not agree with you!What you said in the article,they are not very true!You have talked like somebody who have known people who killed the former Mayor of Cecilia Oba.

    You know,the world is full of enemies by nature! Maybe she got killed from different matters.Apart from SPLM whom believe hard is behind her death in your mind! I do not believe Dinka in the government can do that!

    Now,police have arrested the a suspected killersThey are under in police custody.They are facing arraignment to face justice in the court of law.Find out if they are Dinka.I have a strong believe always! Her killer.They are not from outside in the tribe.Her killers.They are from inside around Equatoria region.I need police cooperation most! Let police continue intorrogating her case well until her killer and her office manager are found!They should be hang to death! without any leniency and clemeny! Living in the country,with a terror,is UNACCEPTABLE! Let people die on natural cause as God has imposed to all things in the creatures!Thank you. Back to you to the audience!

    As you have said that her death came from a land grab issue for a displaced people in the country!

    Very informative article indeed Mr. Ustaz Paul my condolence goes to late sister Cilicia’s family at this very difficult times and to her office manager who was brutally murdered along with her. Sometimes, I wonder why Equatorians allow themselves to such of degradation and humiliation when they are the manjority in Juba? Clement Wani as you rightfully put it once said nobody can sit on Equatorians heads,’ nonetheless, SAME Clement Wani also stated that Salva Kiir is the president today not because of Dinka but because we Equatorians stood with him. Now the same Salva Kiir gave order to his security officers to go and kill Cilicia because she refused to kiss his behind BY OPENLY CRTICIZING KIIR’S LAND POLICY yet her Equatorian men are on SSTV praising Salva. What a nation! Just a reminder to Equatorian leaders who are still supporting Salva. When Salva Kiir declared war on NUER CIVILIANS in South Sudan capital Juba, majority of Nuer broke their silence and said enough is enough. They fought Salva and his LOYAL SOLDIERS RIGHT from SPLA FROM headquarter and all the way to Jonglei and Unity State. They were killed and they had killed Kiir’s supporters. Unfortunately, KIIR STARTED KILLING WOMAN AND THE FIRST WOMAN HE BEGAN WITH AN EQUATORIAN WOMAN! WHAT ABOUT THAT WOMAN FROM HIS HOME REGION WHO BLAMED his LEADERSHIP’S FAILURE openly WHY he had not KILL HER?

    Brother Elhag:

    Me n my friends are in deep grief on the lost of our beloved sister hon. Cicilia n her secretary.We do not treat them as equatorians but simply as most dear human beings n for that matter,fellow south sudanese citizens.We express our most heartfelt condolences to their families n friends in particular n to the rest of our fellow south sudanese masses.

    Since the unfortunate news broke out,me n my friends debated among ourselves as what could have been a motive.We contacted our friends in Juba who contacted their friends in Juba n Yei.One hopes your article provided some facts of investication.Unfortunately in vain.Our attempts to get some facts also failed us.But what we find to be extremely strange n disturbing is the fact that there is no agitation about her death in Equatoria.Why n she was a great fiqure:intellectual,political n social heavyweight?Was she not loved n appreciated in equatoria?Or could the silence be interpreted to mean that she was someone’s thorn in the flesh among the equatorian political elite?To say that SPLM elite,particularly jieng on land grabbing drive,could have had hands in her death is not a false assumption.But to say that equatorian SPLM elite could have had hands in her death is not a false assumption either.The context of the later could suggest application of KOKRA federalism in equatoria,by equatorians n against equatorians even before the hour the jieng n nuers left for their cattle camps in bahar ghazal n upper nile.Spade is spade.Power n money are two faces of the same coin.It’s for the one n the other or for the other n the one that we are witnessing the most unfortunate order of things in RSS.One hopes for a complete investigation.She could have lost her life out of power struggle n the foul play could not be ruled out to have come from within equatoria.God have mercy on RSS n it’s society!!!

    • False Millionaire,

      I think the word “Nuer” is so nice in your mouth because you never missed it out in every comments you made. Since you are not in South Sudan, I would like to assure you that the government is largely dominated by Dinka and Equatorians. If Equatorians are smart enough and well educated as you always claim, they should be able to change the government by now since they occupied the most key positions in the government. For example, you have the vice president, you have chief justice, you have the head of national security, you have deputy chief of staff and all three Equatorians governors are Equatorians, but not Nuer.

      In your comments, I have seen you are blaming Equatorians for their silent for the death of Cecilia, while you always criticized Nuer for fighting back when they were murdered in thousands. You repeatedly called Nuer criminals and good for hell. Today you strongly condemned the murdered of Cecilia, but you never condemned the massacred of Nuer in Juba, instead you strongly condemned Nuer for the war, wishing Nuer to died all, and go to hell. Again, in your current comments you still criticized Nuer too although all South Sudanese knew that Nuer has no hand in the death of Cecilia and her Manager. To you as an Equatorian politician, the death of equatorians is injustice, but the murdered of Nuer had been done in an appropriate manner, right? I just do not know why you hatred Nuer so much “False Millionaire”.

      My friend, Equatorians are in the same boots as Nuer no matter how hard you are trying to please the government, no matter how hard you trying to segregate Nuer from the rest, no matter how hard you are trying to isolate yourself from Nuer, you will always be treated like Nuer. You will never ever do any better in the government more than Nuer. Instead, Equatorians will always encounter so many problems Nuer went through previously although you have the vice president, chief justice, and head of national security. All the aforementioned Equatorians are just figureheads like (Nuer) James Hoth and John Kong who helped Kiir facilitated the killing of Nuer brothers in Juba.

      My sympathy and condolence go to Cecilia’s family, friends, and her Manager and might almighty God rest their souls in peace.

    • Elhag Paul says:

      Kondokoro
      The killers of Equatoria are Deng Agwang, Kuol Manyang Juuk, Salva Mathok, Salva Kiir and the list goes on endlessly. They all come from a tribe called Jieng assisted by naturalised Jieng like General Wani Igga etc

      • Elhag Paul,

        You brought up an excellent point. The above mentioned individuals are well known Dinka Murderers. However, I never know that you know Deng Agwang and Salva Mathok. In 1992, Salva Mathok killed 29 Dingdinga and 33 Nuer in Lotuke South East of Chukudum. In addition to the above mentioned people, Majak Agoot Killed 280 Nuer including 2 younger brothers of James Hoth who were 18 and 21 in 1992 in Pageri.

    All that is necessary for triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Where are the good people of South Sudan especially the Equatorians? If our people in Equatoria think that freedom is free and it will be handed to them peacefully, I am sorry for them.
    The THREE Equatorians’ governors are mute. None of them shows signs of speaking up for this innocent woman. Is this the civilization many have been preaching here and there?

    Unless we bravely confront injustice, the limit to this evil is the sky. Well, let us just hope the peace loving people of Equatoria will get justice peacefully in this mean world.

      TO GATCHARWEARBOL AND OTHERS,
      WHAT MR. ELHAG PAUL HAS SO PLAINLY AND SO IRREFUTABLY UNDERSCORED HERE GOES A LONG WAY TO EXPOSE THE ROTTENNESS OF THE RULING CLIQUE IN JUBA UNDER KIIR AND THE SPLM MACHINARY.
      OBVIOUSLY, THE SPLM HAS NO SHAME DESPITE ITS APPARENT NAKEDNESS! THE EXAMPLES THAT MR. ELHAG PAUL WROTE OF THE HUMILIATION OF BISHOP PARIDE TABAN AND LATE DR. KWAJE WHICH NEITHER JOHN GARANG NOR KIIR DID ANYTHING THEN TO REPRIMAND KUOL MANYANG AND OTHERS, SHOULD HAVE BEEN A WAKE-UP CALL FOR ALL EQUATORIANS AND OTHERS IN THE SPLM/A THAT WE JUST CAN’T ALLOW DEVILS LIKE KUOL MANYANG AND THE MARIALS TO GO SCOT FREE LEAVE ALONE GO ON TO HOLD IMPORTANT PUBLIC POSITIONS.
      EVEN IF BISHOP PARIDE AS A MAN OF GOD SAID HE FORGAVE HIS TORTURERS, JUSTICE MUST PROCEED WHATSOEVER ESPECIALLY IN THE MURDER OF ENGINEER JOHN LEWIS IN JUBA BY MARIAL OF THE SPLM SECURITY.
      ON THE INEXPLICABLE SILENCE OF THE THREE EQUATORIAN GOVERNORS, ONE CAN ONLY GUESS THAT SO LONG AS THESE THREE ‘BLINDED’ MEN CONTINUE TO CARRY THE MEMBERSHIP CARDS OF THIS MONSTROSITY CALLED THE SPLM, THEY WILL ALWAYS APPREHENSIVELY BE LOOKING OVER THEIR SHOULDERS TO SEE IF KIIR AND THE SPLM ARE WATCHING THEM.
      EVEN THESE DAYS, THE THREE ARE CONSPIRATORIALLY NUMB AND SILENT ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE FEDERALISM THAT NOT SO LONG AGO WAS COMMON WORD FROM THEIR MOUTHS. MANY IN THE THREE EQUATORIAN STATES HAD HOPED THEN WHEN THEY STOOD UP TO DEMAND FOR FEDERALISM THAT THE THREE WOULD HAVE QUIT THE SPLM AND FORMED A NEW PARTY OR MOVEMENT TO CHAMPION THE MUCH CHERISHED CALL FOR FEDERALISM AS A NEW POLITICAL DISPENSATION TO THE RECURRENT NATIONAL CRISIS.
      PERHAPS TODAY, IN HINDSIGHT, WE WOULD NOT BE MOURNING THE BRUTAL MURDERS OF CECILIA AND HER MANAGER. LET THEIR SOULS REST IN PEACE.

    Alhag Paul
    Cecilia was murdered because of corrupted Equatorian who sells the land to one person and uses the same land and sells it to another person. Unless you control your own corruption by yourselves; these kinds of murder will continue. It’s easy to blame Jieng when these kinds of tragedies happened but not looking back to what you did wrong wouldn’t solve the problem.

    When you said your intellectuals are being murdered for no reason; that’s actually not true because there are reasons. When come and disrespect the authorities who liberate this country and think you are the only learned one; you’ll face the music.

    Anyone who talks of colonization is an idiot; no one is here to colonize anyone; the time of Western colonization is long gone. The issue here is; if you don’t respect the authorities; the authorities will not respect you back. And if you want to kill authorities; you’ll kill you first and that’s the fact that you need to know with yourself claim education.
    Equatoria wasn’t settled by Dinka in the year 2005 but it was settled by Jiengs since the creation and notion that somehow Dinka is occupying your land or Equatoria is utterly ludicrous. If you don’t know a complete history then you should asked your parents.

    No one wants to slap or killed anyone’s leader as long as they are advocating for peace, safety and co-existence of all South Sudanese. If you think you have an Equatoria you want to live alone; then you need to go and dream that dream somewhere else and not here in South Sudan.

    Kokora was your inability to compete in present of Jieng/Dinka as you may know Arabs were the ones in charge of Sudan including South Sudan before the war of liberation and whoever was appointing Jiengs to key positions within Equatoria wasn’t Jiengs but Arabs and therefore you can’t blame your mediocrity to anyone.

    Nairobi, Kampala, Addis Ababa are not inhabited by a single ethnic group but all ethnic groups that make up a country. A particular ethnic group in that vicinity of that city doesn’t call for Kokora to let other ethnic groups leave because Nairobi or Kampala is their ancestral land that it would just be highly irrational.

      Thank you very much for reconfirming your plans of settlement and orphanisation.

        Elhag Paul:

        In additions, the neighbourhoods which you and your Kokora veterans named in Juba during the Kokora in 1980s such as Agtula Jiengie (Kill the Dinka) Athela Bara (Get Out) and Rujal Mapei ( No men) are now inhabited by the Jiengie(Dinka). The fewer Kokora veterans who did not flee the Country are so scared and ashamed to say the names of those neighbourhoods in Juba.

        Also the Mountain in Western Juba where you used to bury the Dinka victims of Kokora in 1980s has been renamed as Jebel Dinka. The population of the Dinka and Dinkaquatoria tribes is rapidly growing in the greater Equatoria region. This would make it impossible for the Dinka haters and Kokora veterans to wage the war against the Dinka. The Dinka knows every corner or mountain in the greater Equatoria region more than the Equatorians themselves. Therefore it is absurd to call and instigate the rebellion in London, England. Who is going to drive the Dinka out of your backyards while you are hiding in London, UK?

        • Elhag Paul says:

          Bol
          You asked: “Who is going to drive the Dinka out of your backyards while you are in London, UK.” The simple answer is that when the right time comes the Jieng will drive themselves out of our backyards on their own at an unimaginable speed. So for the time being the people can put up with the Jieng abuse knowing well that the future looks bright.

            Elhag;
            In your own imaginary world; things happened on their own and therefore Equatoria will magically be free of Dinka inhabitants only in the near future! Well; this is like saying; “why should I work hard to prepare my garden before the rainy season? Instead I will just sit here with my hands crossed and my garden will magically produce crops by itself”! That’s a very good wishful thinking; we all wished things were like that; because the whole world would have been very easy place to live by mankind!

Equatorians must see Dinka as really enemy as they are get/ danga and do what they do to us.

      Arabbmoi:

      There is no such a name as Koul Juuk Manyang. It is good to know who you are bitching about. If you were not an Alien, you would have known that our defense minister is named Hon. Kuol Manyang Juuk. Mr. Daniel Arap Moi (AKA ARABMOI) of Kenya, What provoked Hon. Kuol Manyang Juuk to allegedly assassinate late Hon. Cecilia Tito? Why would Kuol Manyang Juuk Kill ex-Mayor of Yei County?

      If Joseph Oduho was not killed and Bishop Taban slapped, we wouldn’t be having the independence of South Sudan today as they were against the SPLA/M movement. If Kuol Manyang Juuk finds you and Mr. Elhag Paul, he would not kill you, he would just donate your entire body and brain to University of Juba for the research of human stupidity and hatred.

  11. Bol says:

    Elhag,
    I wonder how can an educated person points finger of accusation without evidence ? A lot is said about the possible motive of her murder, but they remain rumours not worth airing out. This article is simply a dirty work of using the deceased case to advance your hatred mission which will one day caught up with you .

    • Bol,

      You mentioned that “A lot is said about the possible motive of her murder” Can you tell us some of those motives that led to Cecilia assassination?

      • Bol says:

        B.R,
        If you really want to know more then call Juba ( please don’t tell you don’t know any body there). Land grabbing or being eliminated as a part of gran project of Eguatorian’s orphanisation are not among what is circulating in the street. Elhag is building his empire of hate with the cocktail of victim’s misery and far fetching.

  12. Majongdit says:

    Equatorians kill themselves and they blame it on Government. Absurd! For your information, 4 of the killers of Hon. Cecilia have been arrested and one is on the run…and they are all Equatorians.

    • Majongdit,

      Liar stop lying to South Sudanese on this website. Can you tell us their names if they are caught?

      • Elhag Paul says:

        Bentiu Ramaran
        You are absolutely spot on. Majongdit is a liar. Most of them are liars any way. Remember, their minister of foreign affairs came with a large entourage to London sometimes back to sell their lies about the ethnic cleansing of the Nuer in Juba, did they succeed? No, they were caught with their pants down and told frankly that there was no coup. They left Europe wet like chicken caught in a heavy rain.

  13. notorious and Stooge El hag Paul,
    your article is full of nonsense and only hatred to incite the people of South Sudan.there is no any proved leading to your propaganda for the Killing of the former mayor.
    your hatred Towards Jieng will never promote you to be a good leader among the Equatorian Politicians.God is watching and am quite you will not escape it.

    • Elhag Paul says:

      Toney Toney Matot
      You behave like devils by murdering people freely without accountability and yet again you try to invoke God’s power. Are you not crazy? Where do you find the devil and God working with one person at the same time? You can not be a killer and also a preacher of God’s word. Give us a break.

  14. Pac Marial says:

    Mr. Elhag Paul,

    What if the killers of the late Cecilia are found not to be Jieng during the course of investigation. would you apologize and take back this serious accusation???? I am not sure Jieng man can kill a woman in the very cowardly way. Truth will be revealed soon. I pray from the bottom of my heart that those who killed Cecilia and her office manager be found and that the blood of Cecelia will compel them to come forward confess in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a feeling that this killing has something to do with power struggle

    • GatCharwearbol says:

      Pac Marial,

      “I am not sure Jieng man can kill a woman in the very cowardly way”. By this statement, I think you are not Dinka, but someone pretending to be Jieng. If you are Jieng, you must have short memory. Not even a year long when Jieng men murdered Nuer women, children of 6 year of age, and elderly men. Please do not say the name of good lord in vain.

    • Elhag Paul says:

      Pac
      You argue: “I am not sure Jieng can kill a woman in the very coward way.” You are not only wrong but a hypocrite. Let me tell, Mangar who was the commander of SPLA in Kaya during the war murdered a young teenage girl called Maka because the girl refused to marry him. Mangar the monstrous murderer inserted a metal into her private parts and twisted it round as a punishment for rejecting to marry him. Was Maka not a girl and “a woman”? There are many stories of this nature involving the Jieng and Equatoria woman.
      Of course you are right when you say, “I am (have) a feeling that this killing has something to do with power struggle.” The power struggle is at the centre of the Jieng policy of settlement and orphanisation. It is a struggle about total subjugation of Equatoria and Cecilia is a victim of it.

      • Elhag Paul,

        In addition to what you said, CDR Magar Aciek murdered two medical Doctors in Maridi. Both of them were known as Koang. One Koang had two wives and six children and the other Koang had one wife with four children. The Koang that had two wives, one of his wives was pregnant and the other Koang’s wife was nursing mother with 9 month old baby. Commander Mager Aciek did not only murdered their husbands, but he murdered all the women including their children. None of them escaped Commander Magar Aciek security guard.

        • Bol Akuol. says:

          Bentiu Ramaran:

          You and Elhag Paul will never liberate South Sudan from the Dinka with your vicious lies and made up stories. Why do you think the Dinka would kill a lady who was not a threat to our leadership in South Sudan? Late ex-mayor of Yei County, Hon. Cecilia Tito was a not a threat to the Dinka leadership and I do not see any reason why the Dinka should kill her. In additions, you Nuer like to start the war and run to where your children are living. Therefore you get kill along with your families especially children and women. Those women were killed when the Nuer rebelled against the SPLA in Eastern Equatoria under the leadership of Wiliam Nyuon Bany in1992.

          You (Nuer) attack the Dinka and flee to your families when defeated and that is why Dinka kill your women and children. We, the Dinka, don’t run to our homes when are defeated. We run to the Bush for the sake our families. Is that not Pelpel Jang? Now there are more than 100.000 Nuer civilians in Twic County, Warrap State and more than 120.000. Nuers in Amongpiny, Lakes State. There is UNMISS camp in Warrap and Lakes State. Those Nuer Civilians are under protections of the Dinka. If Dinka kill innocent civilians as alleged here Why are those Nuer civilians Killed in Warrap and Lakes States?
          Bentiu, I have just learned that you and Gatcharwearbol are Brothers and loyalists of Riek Machar. You are Paul Dak and Gatdet Dak. Will you really liberate South Sudan from the Dinka who fought for 21 years for its liberation? Is Riek Machar returning to Juba under the leadership of Beny Kiir Mayrdit?

  15. Dear El Hag Paul,
    Surely I know that we the Jieng hate any thing that comes from you even if you say the skye is blue.
    But, rest assured you are a true teller. “Scandal after scandal and illegality after illegality go unpunished”
    Touched my heart, I wish one day you talk about the suffering of all South Sudanese under the current regime from Nimule to Renk and Raja to Naser…Our problem is not Dinkas but poor leadership.
    Brother El hag war crimes follow war zones like the way rain follows inter convergent zone. Just come to greater uper Nile now you will say better the suffering of Equatorians over 21 Years under the hands of SPLA then One year suffering of Nuers and Dinkas under the SPLA. I never Imagined SPLM to Kill Oba Cicilia! never!!!!! Did you know SPM/A Killed 17000 Nuer civilans in Juba?…So SPLM is a HIV combined with Malaria and will one day finish all South Sudanese.

    • Elhag Paul says:

      Arop
      Thanks for your understanding. I am not against the Jieng, but I have to tell the truth. The majority of the Jieng support the corrupt and murderous system in Juba and this has to be told as it is. Where Jieng are victims, it must also be told. For example, I spoke out against the horrendous murder of Isaiah Abrahams, I spoke out about the cold blooded killing of General George Athor. I spoke out against the killings of Jieng and foreign fighters in Bor, Bentieu and elsewhere. For us to build a good country we must respect life and this means everybody in South Sudan is precious and should not be abused.

    I am disappointed in our generals , Governors, MPs etc they are mere condoms. They think bse they are in big positions today, their kids will be better, How wrong they are. The Jieng planned to make sure our kids call their Kids “Beny”. the fight is not for our sake, its for our Children and generations to come.

    For sure the unified from from all parts of Equatoria at this material time can not be subdued. Equatoria and Nuer Upraising could put this tyranny to an end in no time. Its only through these that we can negotiate real peace. WHERE IS THE LEADER??????

      You can rant and use all sorts of words and language, but it will not scare anyone. The Jieng are not “the dragon”. The Murle who make about 160 thousand persons stood up to you the Jieng and they tamed you. The evidence is the Greater Pibor Adminstrative Area. The Nuer were about to teach you a lesson of your life and what did you do? You ran to Museveni with your pants down for help. The Jieng now are hostage of Museveni and mark my word, he Museveni will make a lunch of you soon or later. So stop parroting your delusion of grandeur.

        Do not dream that Nuer can defeated Dinka,Nuer has ran away in Juba where there was no Uganda present.Riek Machar has been defeated in1991 and been defeated 2013 and War is going on.but pease do not use Nuer against Dinka otherwise the great monyjang will give power.remember the great Monyjang is not against Nuer or any body because Riek is alternative to Kiir Mayardit.so any Nuer can rule except Riek Machar.

      • Bol says:

        Mankinmanner is a Nuer not Dinka. Check out his/ her comments in (causes of the current war).

        • GatCharwearbol says:

          Bol,

          How does a comment classify you as Nuer or Dinka? Don’t you know there are Nuers who are diehard supporter of Kiir and Dinka? Also, there are Dinka who are diehard supporters of Nuer. How do you differentiate these two in the gray area? Stop deceiving yourself and scan farther than your nose.

          • Bol says:

            GL,
            The language this individual uses is a typical Jesh Maboir villager one. His world is divided into two:- We and the Dinka, it should have been we and the government, if there was a grey area in his mind. The second comments contradict the previous one as he can’t supports Dr Machar and Federalsim and opposes it at the same time. Therefore the last comment is meant to anger Equatorians and to achieve maximum impact he tried to appear as Dinka. However, Elhag and the co will definitely disregard his unhelpful comments and consider him part of Kiir machinery. So, my dear the partnership is intact without you putting up another mini war.

      • GatCharwearbol says:

        None is sober enough to listen to your wise advice. They are all wallowing in their insanity thinking they have a friend in the name of Museveni. Let us wait and see what will happen. Equatorians are waking up slowly but sure. If they do not evaluate themselves soon, all will join Kiir in their whisky drinking contest.

    • LONG says:

      Mankinmanner

      why are you in camps? do you Equatorains in IDP camps, Refugee camps. Fed by WFP for decades. Shameless fool. Let the war begin, I tell you hunger alone will finish you animals

  18. Mr ElHag
    The trend of Jengge in Equatoria is clear, jenggenizing or dinkanizing Equatoria. The ball is now on Equatoria Court. The splm-io under the leadership of Dr Riek Machar, has utilized Kiir’s rebellion against himself to give a golden chance to the oppressed such as the Equatorians to stand up and say “No!!” to the Kiir dinka lead government in South Sudan.
    Equatorians should not keep on talking but with the talk, they have to walk the walk.

    Leaders come and go. If Equatorians feel leaderless, then they should look up to the splm-io as a platform where new Equatorian leaders must shoot up.

    Personally, Splm-in opposition and the Equatorians got to form a strategic alliance to oust jengge if Equatorians need to regain their pride and dignity.

  19. Collins Kepa says:

    Those Equatorians who repute Paul Alhag’s findings are the ones bought by Kiir’s murderous regime to defend the dictator by all means. Now they are trying to implicate innocent Equatorians as a cover up strategy, but we are not stupid. The Jieng did it and it is not the first time. To brother Arop Peter Biar, I do agree with some of the facts you stated, but besides few individuals from Dinka Awil, none of you the Jieng condemned Kiir. Instead you all team up with your elders (the Koch Benyi) to run a Jieng Kingdom in South Sudan. These are facts that can not be denied.

  20. Mabok Baak says:

    Dear Paul,

    instead of instigating violence why don’t you join the rebels or form it yourself and you will be married by Dinka man if am not right. What I know is Equatorians are food lovers if not let them try to rebel and you will see what the nuers has never seen.

  21. The killing Of Ex-mayor is not about the land or as other percieved that she was murdered by dinka or Splm. the killer himself [who hired ] I personal knows him The mother is from Pojulu and The father is a Kakwa.His first name is Joseph a member of Seventh Day Adventist Church .So Mr Elhaj Paul Stop lying I did called juba today Nov/22/14

Your primitive King Kiir Mayardead days are Numbered when mighty Nuer and, Murle are not enough to say hi in Bor, Makal unity state bring it on your buttock to be gauged by the son of Topasa here in Kapoeta.

    • Bol Akuol. says:

      Arabbmoi:

      Culturally, Dinka does not sleep with men otherwise we would have got so many Toposa men pregnant when were in Kapoet during the civil war. However if you look around in your family or neighbourhoods you would find a lots of DinkaToposa. We married so many Toposa girls when we were in Kapoeta during the civil war. Sir, Where were you when the Dinka was battling Jalaba in your hometown of Kapoeta in 1980s and 1990s? Were you fighting alongside the Jalaba? Or Were you the one of the Toposa men who dressed up like women and cheered for the Dinka troops to get the Jalaba out of Kapoeta?

      What Kapoeta are you talking about on this forum? Was it the same Kapoeta which was liberated from Jalaba by the Mighty Dinka troops during the civil war?. Nuer and Murle? Well, they are men to people like you and not my Dinka. We defeated Nuer in 1983 and 1991 when they attempted to seize the leadership from us by force. We defeated them again in Juba on December 15th, 2013 and president Kiir Mayardit is still in charge of the Country. Murle has never captured any Dinka land since it declared war against the government of South Sudan. They attacked the Dinka villages, abducted kids, looted the livestock and vanished into the Bush. David Yau Yau was recently convinced to give up the war and brought to Juba by His Lordship, Bishop P.Taban. Your warriors, Nuer are on their way back to Juba under the leadership of King Kiir Mayardit.. If Nuer and Murle could not touch our Buttocks, Do you think your tiny, fearful Toposa can stand the flow of the Dinkas’ farts?

      Please stop whining, threatening and praise Dinka and general Kuol Manyang Juuk for liberating your men and women from Jalaba’s sexual abuse. At least the Dinka soldiers were not fucking your Toposa men in Kapoeta as the Arabs did. Coward, Where were you when General Kuol Manyang Juuk slapped Bishop Taban? Late Joseph Odhuo was killed in the cross fire when Riek Machar’s camp was attacked by the SPLA soldiers in Jonglei. Why did late Uncle Joesph Odhuo allied himself with the traitor and food lover, Riek Machar. Perhaps, Alfred Lado Gore will end up like late Uncle Joseph Odhuo if he continues to follow Riek Machar.

Cicilia must be put aside in the interest of investication to find the culprits to hon. Cicilia’s death.This is the first step,the second step n the last step by virtue of criminal investigation principles.But you appear agitated n moving to mix her death to those before.This could imply that you are not interested in investigation of her death giving the impression that if her death is not investigated,it’s find with you.But this behaviour invites criminal investication psychological analysis:could the crime be a political assassination?could it have been planned n ordered by someone or by a certain political group?do you know something about it?is your agitated behaviour out of attempt to cover up the crime inorder to protect the culprits?all this could give the rough conclusion that you have played direct or indirect role in the conspiracy.Watch out you are playing yourself up to the neck in the muddied shit!!!

I mean I can gauge you with spear as warrior of Topasa not what your talking about. Equatorian are now getting angry with Dinka we will fight to the end and federal states are the answer mark my word. Nuer, Murle rape your women and beat up your men urinate on them in bor Makal and Unity.

      Arabbmoi:

      What happened to Kokora when the mighty Dinka got the AK47 and came to Equatoria in 1980s? King Salva Kiirdit Mayardit will retire in Toposa land when he quits politics. Coward, Why do you talk about Nuer and Murle while the Dinka is peeing in your backyard? Do you want Nuer and Murle to come and chase the Dinka away from your backyards? Well, the Kokora era is gone and dead and the Dinka is presently in charge of Juba. We are now living in Agtulu Jiengie, Rujal Mapei and Athela Bara in Juba. Start the war against the Dinka and we will escort you to your Country of origin. We are not taking Bullshit from nobody this time. Murle has already returned and Nuer is on the way. Start the war and you will be the next victim.

    Please calm down.I am among those against the jieng system that is’nt working.So this point is’nt any subject of disagreement with you.But we are giants with difficult,constructive n profound experiences behind us.So we don’t deserve to accept falling victims to narrow ways of doing things.We must think big like english elite which could’nt be too difficult to comprehend so far as you live in England.The dinkocrecy government as you termed it is a minority ruling elite n they include almost every one including equatorians.Their ways are as foolish as the ways of greedy few hunters,as in the legend,who choose to skin an elephant inside a hut inorder to hide the meat from being shared by the rest of the community.Their habit to this regard has long consolidated n one can never expect them to change without being forced to do so.But who are the victims under the dinkocrecy?It’s every one including the majority of jieng.

    If things really appear too dark,by the nature of human history,we are not in an irreversible fatality.The grave mistake we can commit is isolating ourselves in small groups everyone fighting for his share of meat in the elephant.The war that is going on today in our country is a case in point.It has no national agenda rather than being a simple tribal war between dinkas n nuers.In being such,the objective of a dinka citizen is to kill a nuer citizen.In much thesame way,the objective of a nuer citizen is to kill a dinka citizen.This way the cycle goes on n on.This is a grave contradiction to the concept of a nation n therefore we can never be a party to it.What we hope for is a general mobilization of all our citizens from the 64 tribes including the jieng.There are no credible reasons to make us feel being enemies to one another.But the only common enemy to all of us are the corrupt elite running the government.It must be made clear that any revolt against the corrupt government must be calculated with minimum human cost possible.This has been our thinking,this is our thinking now n this will remain as our thinking for the best as for the worst.

    But the death of hon. Cicilia is a grave surprise.We consider it to be a cowardly cheap shot.That would only serve for inferior objectives that would never change the saddest order of things in our country.You are an outstanding intellectual n I believe you would agree that even the global political struggle greatest gods like Mandela n Ghandi would condemn it as stupid.The culprits would get her political position n make money with it.Shame on them!We don’t n we will never belong among them.But we will struggle on with our own means favoring dialogue over violence.This is our position.We have no intention to neither divert any one’s attention nor blame any victims becouse we are also victims.

      HI, MORGAN MALITH,
      YOUR ARCHAIC AND TYPICALLY TYRANNICAL WISHES OF ILLEGALITY CAN’T BE IMPLEMENTED IN WHATEVER CIVILIZED COUNTRY. REST YOUR IMAGINATION AS MR. ELHAG PAUL IS VERY SAFE. IT’S REALLY SAD AND UNFORTUNATE THAT SOUTH SUDAN EMBASSIES AND THEIR AMBASSADORS ARE ALSO WORKING AS TERROR AGENTS OF KIIR’S GOVERNMENT. IF YOUR AMBASSADORS EVER STARTED UNLAWFULLY ARRESTING ITS OWN CITIZENS ABROAD WITHOUT RECOURSE TO THE LAWS OF THOSE COUNTRIES THEY ARE ACCREDITED TO, YOU AND KIIR WILL END UP WITH NO EMBASSY ANY WHERE IN A CIVILIZED COUNTRY AND SPECIFICALLY THOSE COUNTRIES TODAY AIDING KIIR WILL INSTANTLY CUT OFF ALL THE FREE GOODIES THAT ARE HELPING AND KEEPING SOUTHERNERS ALIVE.
      DO YOU KNOW SOMETHING CALLED THE ‘RULE OF LAW AND FREE SPEECH?’ THAT, FOR YOUR INFO, IS WHAT THIS SOUTHSUDANNATION.COM ARDENTLY AND PASSIONATELY STANDS FOR AND HAS BEEN PERSISTENTLY STRUGGLING TO INJECT INTO THE VEINS OF THE LAWLESS TYRANTS IN JUBA.

    ELHAG PAUL,
    I HAVE REALIZE YOUR CONCERN AND INTENTIONS, YOU CAME UP WITH THIS BASELESS AND UNFOUNDED ACCUSATION AFTER WHICH YOU SHAMEFULLY FAILED TO CONVINCES YOUR WESTERN ALLIES TO OUST THE CURRENT PRESIDENCY AND GOVERNANCE OUT OF POWER SO THAT THE LIKES OF YOUR UNCLES, SHEIKH ABDEL-RHAMAN SULE, DR. ELHAJ WANI TOMBE AND OTHER FREE-FOOD HUNTERS FROM NYAMNYAM (EQUATORIANS) CAN SLICKLY COME TO POWER WITHOUT SWEATING.
    WHAT I HAVE LIKED THE MOST IN YOUR TRIBALISTIC ARTICLE IS HOW YOU HELPLESSLY BEGS FOR THE EQUATORIANS TO BUY YOUR CHEAP AND TRIBAL CAMPAIGN TO RISK THEIR DEAR LIFE FOR YOUR OWN INTEREST BUT THANK GOD EQUATORIANS ARE NOT THAT DUMB AND BLIND LIKE THAT OF NUER WHO HAVE AIMLESSLY RISK THEIR PRECIOUS LIFE FOR ONE POWER-GREEDY PERSON.
    WHEN YOU HAVE FINISH FROM USING JIENG AFTER DINKA, HERE IS ANOTHER NEW WORD FOR YOUR TRUE ENEMY, WE ARE ALSO CALLED MONYJANG/MUONYJANG WHICH MEANS THAT WE CARE FOR YOU ALL AND THAT WHY 0VER 90% OF DINKA POPULATION RISKED THEIR GOOD LIFE TO LIBERATES SOUTHERNERS FROM ARAB WITH THEIR VALUABLE BLOOD & LIFE TO HAVE SOUTH SUDAN AS AN INDEPENDENT NATION.
    BELIEVE ME YOUR PLANS WILL NOT WORK UNTIL YOU COME OUT CLEARLY AND BURY YOUR WESTERN BELLY IN KHAKI OR UNIFORM AND PICK UP YOUR GODDAMN AK47 AND START KILLING YOUR INNOCENT CIVILIANS TO FOLLOW YOU LIKE HOW RIEK AND DAVID YAUYAU DID IT AND THEREAFTER YOU WILL BE REWARDED WITH ADMINISTRATIVE POST, PRIME MINISTER, GREATER EQUATORIA REGIONAL COORDINATOR, ACTIVIST, ADVISOR, GOVERNOR OR ANY POSITION THAT WILL DEEM FIT YOUR FILTHY MOUTH NOT TO TALK ABOUT DINKA, JIENG OR MUONYJANG AS A TRIBE.

    Dear Editor of Southsudannation.com.

    Ur quest for freedom of speech cannot be realised thru, massive internet or media compaigns , but thru, lawful means . Ur incitment of south Sudanese communities to wage war against each other does not reflect nationalistic attitudes towards nation building or search for peace or freedom of speech but å mere destructive and a synical opportunistic ploy Ur hungry wolves are using inorder to out witt Dinka Powerful leadership in the eye of international community. But that is a lie, u refugees have no power over juba govt, but to just bark Like dogs abroad , but try in juba ur ass will fucked

    Bol, we are all men and women with things equal we will liberate ourselves from your Idiot Dinka behaviours . I thought I am reasoning with human being but animal with dead brain. This time we mean business we shall kick Dinka out of Equatorian it doesn’t matter how long your primitive King Salva Kiir Mayardead Stupid Dinka man now think to move Capital to Wau and that is the show of fear. He said he had oppose to let capital to be in Juba because of Memories of KOKOra resurface which is now come in to really. Well, we do not care your all Dinka are enemies of Equatoria and every tribe hates dinka. Even neighbouring countries do not like Dinka. Uganda and Kenyan like Equatorian than Dinka.

      WHAT IS THE BORDER BETWEEN FREE SPEECH AND YOUR PERCEIVED HATE SPEECH?
      PLEASE, WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO INCULCATE TO OUR CONTRIBUTERS HERE IS PEACEFUL DISAGREEMENT AND TOLERANCE OF EACH OTHER’S VIEWS.
      THAT’S IS FREE SPEECH. FOR EXAMPLE, LOOK AT THE PREDICAMENT MR. DENG ATHUAI OF THE CIVIL SOCIETIES COALITION IN JUBA TODAY. HE’S AGAIN UNDER THREAT BY KIIR’S SUPPORTERS FOR SAYING THAT ‘KIIR AND FAMILY ARE NOT FEELING THE SUFFERING OF THE PEOPLE.’
      THE SYCOPHANTS OF THE SPLM ARE ENRAGED AND ARE CALLING FOR DENG ATHUAI’S HEAD.
      WAS IT A HATE SPEECH BY DENG ATHUAI OR WAS IT FREE SPEECH?

    Dear Mr Bol:

    “Sexual gratification as a motive”,to the death of hon. Cicilia could never be a highly credible assumption.If that could have been the case,why should the culprits have kilt her with her secretary?We are adults at this point with long life experiences.We could be judges.We could be investigators.We could be members of ruling elite.We could be politicians on drive for either good or dirty policies.But we are just on the side line in best mental conditions.The murder of hon. Cicilia could’nt be too different from being under the assumption of political assassination.That’s why her secretary had to die with her,a criminals’ method to prempt any possibility of a witness.Also it’s good to be mindful,when structuring a criminal investigation conceptual framework,that the secretary knew all the information related to the administration of the city of Yei.Her death buried all that n that could have been the objective so that the successor should begin from a virgin ground.

    The assumption of political assassination scenario implies involvement of CEE high level political elite.This is a very important point becouse it’s only CEE political elite who are governing CEE.But brother El hag comes up with a scenario accusing the jieng.This is rubbish that could never hold water in any concept of a sincere investigation.The question is why is he doing it?could it be a malicious smearing campaign to create smoke screen n to hide the culprits?

    The days of the sick RSS are numbered n there are no longer any angels to trust.The death of hon. Cicilia pushed us with our friends to debate on the realities on the ground.Our findings are terrible facts:rampant corruption,nepotism,land grabbing business in towns like Juba n Yei n bitter dog fight struggles for power without mercy.In brief:that’s the equatorian version of rotten SPLM/SPLA elite.That is the reality brother El hag n his likes do everything including smearing articles to cover up.

      I can happily live with your libellous comments. However, you need to know that if you are to have any credibility you need not hide under a pseudonym. This in itself spells volumes about you and I won’t go into that. If you want us to have a debate on your libellous material be my guest. FYI, I do not use false names to hide behind. I am who I am and that is what you get. Ciao!

    • Bol says:

      False Millonaire,
      Detective Hercule Poirot “Agatha Christie” would have definitely stood you down from his team, because he never rules out or in any line of inquiry. He would have asked so many questions…Where and when did it happened….why was X with Y at certain time…..Who was Y and who was X and was there anything fishy between the two ?….. All these questions are probable. When the investigator or concern writer ignores them and claimed to have got the credible answer “Settlement and orphanisation”, and no one says anything…. Something is wrong here … … Nobody should be hold hostage to such narrow thinking or twisted logic. Murder was in Equatoria before Dinka come and will be there if they go today. People should deal with it as a pure crime, not a political game.
      Merry X mass.

  46. Pac Marial says:

    Mr. Editor Sir,

    Freedom of speech is not the same like spreading unconfirmed, dangerous lies. This is what I said.

  47. Dmajak says:

    To paul Alhag , you are a big liar in Equatoria or South Sudan in general because every one believe the former mayor was killed by inner circle or relatives . in Dinka culture , we don’t kill women no matter where she come from. If it is government or Dinka as you claim there is no way they should use knives or paga as the weapons to kill this innocent woman . you know better than that . there are more guns in Dinka community and they can use them against their enemy if they wish so the murder of our beloved mayor should be blame on Coward Equatoria such as you.
    she was friend to many dinkas and we will missed her hard work and love of nation . we will bring these criminals to justice .

    • Eastern says:

      Dear Dmajak,

      Stop this blanket generalisation of what Dinka can do and not do. Who killed the Nuer women and children in Mia Saba, Leer, Malakal and UN civilian protection site in Bor. Were these killings not done by blood thirsty Dinka men?

      Continue with your reference of coward Equatorians, Equatoria will extricate itself from the quagmire (aka South Sudan) to build a new country whose prosperity is based on agriculture, human capital and mutual coexistence. Tired of Dinkocracy and corruption.

      Bol, corruption in typical of Dinkocracy: cattle raiding is corruption in its ‘natural’ form.

      Continue whining, Equatoria shall break away a from the current South Sudan. Watch this space!

    • GatCharwearbol says:

      Dmajak,

      Who can believe you when you are a barefaced liar! Lying is indeed your culture and it is deeply in your blood. South Sudanese know better. Nuer women and children were murdered in their thousands in Juba and other places by Dinka. Who does not know that?

  48. Choromke Jas says:

    Elhag,

    I have never been so profoundly affected by your earlier postings as by this latest offering. It should carry a warning to Equatorians: “IF YOU HAVE A SLAVE HEART DO NOT READ”. To read this by a slave can cause terrible psychological dissonance.
