National Dialogue of the deaf and blind is a waste of time

BY: Alhag Paul, South Sudan, JUN/07/2017, SSN;

The dynamics of the National Dialogue have thrown up interesting social realities. One of these realities is the newly emerging willingness of some intellectual members of the Jieng community to speak out openly.

This is a good development because the blanket silence of the Jieng over the horrendous behaviour of their leaders and the regime in Juba is fueling hatred toward them.

The debate on the National Dialogue is offering opportunity for expression of such change. During a meeting on the subject at Westminster University on 28th March 2017, Peter Biar Ajak surprised some by coming clean.

Peter and the other speakers unanimously agreed that if the National Dialogue is to work, President Salva Kiir must not be the patron as he is part of the problem to avoid the issue of partiality of the process.

They also stressed that the National Dialogue must be inclusive and it should be held in a neutral place to ensure security of the participants.

These concerns have been raised internally by the various South Sudanese political groups and externally by international community.

For example, the People Democrat Movement (PDM) produced a detailed comprehensive document on the topic and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission emphasised the need for impartiality and inclusivity during his visit to Yei, South Sudan.

Peter crucially went further to touch the nexus of Dinkocracy to the National Dialogue. Important as it was, it nearly went unnoticed had Peter not brought it to light.

It appeared as if Peter was clear that the stain of Jieng tribalism would make the National Dialogue exercise lose its credibility.

This is not because over 40 percent of the steering committee of the National Dialogue including its leadership is Jieng, but rather because of the emerging picture about the Jieng government following the resignation of Lt. General Thomas Cirillo Swaka and others from the army.

The resignation letters of these patriotic servants of the people laid bare the tribal nature of the army.

Peter highlighted this point powerfully as an academic distancing himself from the tribal regime and appearing to be patriotic. He stated to the audience that, “since the creation of the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE), the structure of the government (of South Sudan) turned into Dinka government. With defection of General Thomas Cirillo now the remaining five Chiefs of the army are Dinka and this is now Dinka militia.”

He went on to say, “Dinka nationalism is becoming a threat to South Sudan”. With this truth, Peter in effect joined a new group of Jieng converts who are now seeing the light and want to act patriotically.

In contrast to Peter’s view, The Sudd Institute in their paper titled, The Dialogue Brief, South Sudan’s National Dialogue: what it should be and why it should be supported dated 31st March 2017 attempts to manipulate its readers.

It deceptively paints the national dialogue of President Kiir as a process that has a huge support throughout the country.

This sort of misinformation and manipulation should not surprise anyone as the Sudd Institute is one of the three Jieng think tanks funded clandestinely by the government of President Kiir.

The others are: Ebony managed by Deng Lual Aciek and Centre for Strategic Analysis and Research managed by Peter Biar Ajak himself.
Peter has spoken the truth.

Dinkocracy reigns supreme in South Sudan. Whether Peter’s expressed truism is honest or not, it does not matter. He has at last demonstrated that as a Jieng he has the capacity to be objective.

It would be wrong to say that Peter of all the Jieng is the first person to state the truth about the regime in Juba. Nearly a decade ago, a Jieng lady called Ayeng Jacqueline and few others complaint against Jieng imperialistic behaviour.

In my article, ‘Tear down the SPLM’: will South Sudanese now respond? I wrote about their novel efforts.

“True South Sudanese like Ayuen Panchol and Ayeng Jacqueline Ajak who expressed her view in “Let’s try to reform our people. A Dinka woman’s point of view on Madi land issue” published in February 2009 by South Sudan Nation are leading the way in the Jieng community to do the right thing for the country.

South Sudanese should stand up with them. They are caring of the country and its people. These are individuals who have demonstrated their human values. They say things as they are.

If South Sudan had the majority of its population with the likes of Ayeng and Ayuen, the country today would be a different place to live in and Oyee would have been history.” (http://www.southsudannewsagency.com/index.php/2012/09/02/tear-down-the-splm-will-south-sudanese-now-respond/)

The disappearance of these patriotic Jieng from the political scene of South Sudan must be a result of Jieng group pressure. As such we the non-Jieng need to support the good Jieng and where possible protect them to counter the tribal pressure exerted on them to conform.

These complaints must not be forgotten because this is the evidence that women are part of the struggle and they should not be made invisible by male dominance as experienced by women worldwide.

Of recent, converts such as Kuir Garang Kuir have been very vocal against the regime and credits should be given where it is due.

This will help in making the Jieng understand that they are not hated but rather it is their imperialistic behaviour that the people do not like.

Therefore, Peter Biar Ajak being a Jieng from Bor will go a long way if he starts to talk the truth about the Jieng occupation of Madi land, Bari land, Chollo land etc.

I have no doubt that people like him can persuade the Jieng to shun their colonial mentality if they so choose to be on the right side of history.

The impact of Jieng imperialistic adventures on the image of the Jieng and above all Jieng relationship with others is so unhealthy to the extent that it risks serious repercussions for the Jieng as a people.

Presently, Jieng unity that enabled them to abuse South Sudanese is in crisis. The Jieng delusionally committed horrendous crimes in believe that they will remain invincible.

Well, in life there is nothing like that. Human beings act in groups primarily as individuals and individuals have personal ambitions which if suppressed may lead to group fissures and ultimately to disunity and conflict.

This process now seems to be taking place among the Jieng. The squabbles in the heart of Jieng power triggered by the removal of Paul Malong from his military position have opened up cracks rippling through their supposed iron cast unity.

Paul Malong now most likely feels bitterly deceived, used and abused by President Kiir. He may virtually be going through emotional and mental turmoil.

To a large extent, he is possibly a person in crisis with the probability of posing danger to himself and the society.

What makes this situation worse is President Kiir’s Machiavellian restrictions on his movements which suggests he is under house arrest.

Worst still, His supporters are being weeded out of the system and disarmed at lightening speed while his opponents such as General Dau Aturjong are being rehabilitated and fast tracked into position of power.

In a nutshell, Paul Malong to President Kiir is now an enemy exactly like Riek Machar. What an irony? The conflict between this two is similarly replicated throughout the entire Jieng tribe mirroring the bigger conflict of the Jieng against the other 63 tribes.

To illustrate the cracks in the Jieng community, look at the following picture.

The Agouk Jieng of Chief Justice Chan Reec are accusing the Apuk Jieng of President Kiir of Apukanising Warrap like they Dinkocratised the country.

The Malual Jieng of Paul Malong are accusing the Apuk and the Agouk of using them as cannon fodder in their war of imperialism in the country.

The Tonj Jieng of Nhial Deng Nhial and Akol Kur are working hard to replace President Kiir.

The Bor Jieng of Michael Makuie are busy strengthening their militia after being armed by the state to start military incursions into Murle, Mundari and Bari lands.

In addition to this the Bor Jieng have started to challenge the Bahr El Ghazal Jieng groups re-igniting their centuries old rivalries.

The question to ask is: where is the supposed unity of the Jieng? Clearly the so called unity of the Jieng is something that is held by the feeling that they own the state of South Sudan which is sheer fantasy.

In 2015 Ambassador Telar Deng emphasised the importance of Jieng unity to hold on to state power in South Sudan.

Holding on to state power without smooth unity is unworkable. The fissures in the Jieng community are unlikely to heal in the short or medium term because it involves deceit and spelled blood (sacrificed Mathiang Anyoor for Jieng glory).

Again, take the classic example of Paul Malong whose character is highly questionable, please see, The coin of power: Gen. Paul Malong aspires for president!! (http://www.southsudannation.com/the-coin-of-power-gen-paul-malong-aspires-for-president/).

He mobilised the Jieng youth in their thousands who they (JCE) then sacrificed on pursuit of the illusion of Jieng supremacy. Now he Malong himself has fallen foul of the very Jieng system he wholeheartedly supported.

Was it really worth it? Is he any better than Riek Machar whom he tried to kill for President Kiir? Should this not serve as a lesson to every Jieng that Dinkocracy does not pay?

If Paul Malong of all Jieng can be trashed like he has, who is the average Jieng? Thus, the Jieng should emancipate themselves from Dinkocracy and adopt democracy.

Paul Malong’s predicament should be a lesson to every one – personal safety and happiness can only be achieved in an authentically democratic state of law and order with a government that protects everyone regardless of tribe, gender, age etc.

Anything other than that is a fantasy and bound to fail.

From the above, unless the Jieng are saved from themselves by honesty of their own tribes mate, they are likely to take all of us down with them. I said this elsewhere and I reiterate it now.

So the good Jieng need to follow the example set by Ayeng Jacqueline, Ayuen Panchol, Kuir Garang ,Peter Biar etc but also go further to join their fellow countrymen in the real struggle against Dinkocracy in other national political movements.

How can South Sudan get a democratic government so that finally the people can begin to experience the benefit of independence?

The panellists at the Westminster University meeting expressed hope that the National Dialogue could be the process.

Also according to Sudan Tribune, Mr David Shearer, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General in South Sudan, believes that the National Dialogue will help in resolving the conflict in the country.

“The national dialogue, initiated by Kiir, is both a forum and process through which the people of South Sudan shall gather to redefine the basis of their unity as it relates to nationhood, redefine citizenship and belonging, as well as restructure the state for national inclusion.” (UN official urges “common strategy” on South Sudan’s political process. http://sudantribune.com/spip.php?article62544)

I would like to argue that the optimism expressed by the panelists and Mr Shearer may be unrealistic. It is possible that Mr Shearer may not have seen the letter written by Cannon Clement Janda dated 3rd May 2017 in which he declined President Kiir’s appointment to the Steering Committee of the National Dialogue.

Cannon Janda listed the following crucial points as reasons why the National Dialogue would not bring peace:
Quote
1. The decree is very vague on the issue of governance of our country. By issuing the decree President Kiir believes that the process of National Dialogue will end up on his desk for his final consideration and or decision. This is totally unacceptably on the issue of how South Sudan is governed and how the present rulers have drained all national blood and wealth can not be considered a serious process.

2. A credible National Dialogue could only be conducted in an atmosphere of complete freedom. That freedom includes freedom of press to all views of the participants without fear and favour. That atmosphere does not exist in present South Sudan.

3. A genuine dialogue must be done after political process and by limited elected persons with authority to air the views of their communities. Being picked makes every individual only loyal to President Salva Kiir and not to their communities. Such a process is worthless.

4. The country is bleeding. Half of its population is either in refuge in foreign countries or rounded up in internally displaced camps. The other half is threatened with man-made famine. Who is there to dialogue?

5. Finally I noticed the majority of the membership of the National Dialogue Steering Committee are people who helped President Kiir to destroy our beloved country. What credibility is there for such persons who should be arraigned in front of an international criminal court to account for their deeds. Is the inclusion into the National Dialogue Steering Committee an attempt to massage their images. Unquote

Cannon Janda’s views are shared by majority of South Sudanese and arguably he could be seen as the voice of the people. He actually has been vindicated after the swearing in of the National Dialogue Steering Committee on 22nd May 2017.

Mr Abel Alier, one of the co-chair has a murky history in South Sudan.

He is not only a tribalist to the bone and the architect of Dinkocracy, but he is the man responsible for dividing South Sudanese by practising tribal discrimination in 1970s as the President of High Executive Council of Regional Government of Southern Sudan.

At the time he Jienganised the police and unleashed it on the other tribes which resulted into the redivision of Southern Sudan into three regions namely: Equatoria, Bahr El Ghazal and Upper Nile.

The Equatorians fought Jieng abuse of power under the slogan – Kokora. Alier singlehandedly is the person responsible for training, mentoring and nurturing the current crop of hardcore tribalists known as JCE.

It is his ideas that waters the tree called JCE. How can such a person as Cannon Janda asked be credible leader of the National Dialogue?

Deducing from the above, Jieng unity is clearly unsustainable and there is a slow realisation among them that their regime is atrophying. Hence, the reasonable ones are now marching into the camp of patriotism.

President Kiir’s launching of the National Dialogue as a vehicle of deception to rescue the regime is experiencing serious resistance and the signs are that it will flop.

This leaves us with only one viable option for solving the problem of South Sudan which is: a National Conference for peace in South Sudan. Such a conference must not be led by IGAD or AU for obvious reasons.

From December 2013, these regional and continental organisations woefully demonstrated beyond doubt immaturity in handling the problem of South Sudan due to their members own interests.

Countries such as Uganda and Kenya could not resist being partial and evidence indicate that their lack of impartiality has actually pushed the country to where it is now.

In South Sudan needs intensive care (https://pachodo.org/latest-news-articles/pachodo-english-articles/7643-south-sudan-needs-intensive-care), IGAD and AU were warned of President Kiir’s introduction of tribal militia and they did nothing and what we have now is a total mess.

Therefore, the proposed conference should be:
a) held outside South Sudan preferably in Tanzania;
b) inclusive of all the stakeholders and,
c) led by one of the renowned elders of the world such as Mr Koffi Annan or Archbishop Desmond Tutu or Ms Mary Robinson with full backing of the Security Council.

I have elsewhere made the last point in few articles couple of years back. I still believe it is the only viable option left.

Finally, the addiction of the Juba regime to violence at any cost to maintain Jieng hegemony and its failure to listen and seriously take advice from the stakeholders and the international community means that the National Dialogue amounts to a partial self dialogue of the deaf and the blind.

Essentially this is an interaction that will be characterised by ‘unresponsiveness’ to the real national crisis and as will be expected, it will not lead into any peace.

So it is utter waste of time and resource though it will help President Kiir in distracting attention of the world from horrors in South Sudan.

    Dear Paul Alhag
    After reading your superb article I would like to borrow some of the points to emphasize on. In particular the areas that I think all non-dinkas need to pay close attention to. As this is the battle of the majority versus minority, the unity of the minority is very vital. These points are from your article and my past comments and Eli wani’s comments. This is like the Arab north who tried hard to control us but they never had substance to unite upon only in the name of religion they lied to the rest of the Arab worlds and Islamic nation that Southerners are against Islam, which was proven to be false. Today the Dinkas are lying through their toothless gaps that everyone is against Dinkas, they are preoccupied with fallacies that Dinka alone will rule the nation for 200 years. They are short sighted and it’s important that we seize these gaps to exploit their weakness. From the following Paul you have shown that you have indeed dug deeper into midst of dinkocracy:
    “(The disappearance of these patriotic Jieng from the political scene of South Sudan must be a result of Jieng group pressure. As such we the non-Jieng need to support the good Jieng and where possible protect them to counter the tribal pressure exerted on them to conform.
    The Agouk Jieng of Chief Justice Chan Reec are accusing the Apuk Jieng of President Kiir of Apukanising Warrap like they Dinkocratised the country.
    The Malual Jieng of Paul Malong are accusing the Apuk and the Agouk of using them as cannon fodder in their war of imperialism in the country.
    The Tonj Jieng of Nhial Deng Nhial and Akol Kur are working hard to replace President Kiir.

    Mr Malong lied to his own people that their children will successfully quench the rebellions and hence they Matiang Anyoor will finally establish the all-time dreams of EVERY DINKA’s over ambitious un-thoughtful born-to-rule theory, 200 years Dinka kingdom in South Sudan. It was all lies and bogus. Dinkas must submit to equality and fairness with the rest today or they will learn the hard way soon or later.
    May I give you an example from our northern neighbors the djellabas thought they could defeat and take-over SS by war, today they regret that move. Again; this is exactly the same dirty politics that Omar Beshir played against Dr. Turabi, look now where is Turabi, biting the dust (turab). Why do you want to learn it the hard way you Dinkas?
    My advice to you the Dinka diehards whose wishful thinking is that Dinkas will rule or remain dominant in power forever, instead of digging your own graves it is about time you step forward and condemn acts of the dictatorship. Call evil as evil and unite with your fellow non-dinka citizens and spare the future of Dinka names.

    “President Kiir’s launching of the National Dialogue as a vehicle of deception to rescue the regime is experiencing serious resistance and the signs are that it will flop.

    I actually think the real reason Gen. Awan got fired is because he has come to his senses that the tribal chief Kirr had used him, he realized that Kirr was just using him and the whole dinka tribe to keep him Mr. Kirr in the seat for life and so he was starting to question and resist orders from the dictator, just as we see the outcome now.
    Also Awan became aware that this war will never be won militarily, hence all the lives of those Dinka militia children aka Mathiang Anyoor he was sent to recruit from his home town are dying in the bushes of Equatoria, Upper Nile and Western Bahr Ghazal etc in vain.

    “So the good Jieng need to follow the example set by Ayeng Jacqueline, Ayuen Panchol, Kuir Garang ,Peter Biar etc but also go further to join their fellow countrymen in the real struggle against Dinkocracy in other national political movements.”

    Obviously Salva Kirr is the stupidest person to have lived if he really thinks his nonsense of so-called “National dialogue” has any chance to succeed by appointing this old fool aka the Founder of ALL EVILS in South Sudan.
    “Mr Abel Alier, one of the co-chair has a murky history in South Sudan.

    Salva Kirr is not for peace,
    He wants to control and make all Opposition parties to surrender so he continues consolidating power into his iron grip.
    For those who think Salva Kirr is for peace need to think twice, this useless ND is nothing but to lure those naive souls to their death traps (in the past personally I did warn SPLA IO before they were lured to Juba to be slaughtered, off course birds of the same feathers ie SPLA, IG, IO, G10 etc. flock together until a storm hits. Since after independence all these groups have been cautioned and ordinary people tried to advise them but they turned deft ear, they didn’t listen and they all paid a very painful price.

    Buying time
    This is just another one of the JCE tactical conceits to divert attention from reforms, Federalism and the 34+ newly created jengenized states. this time as they intend to make mockery of everybody they even openly included the head of ALL DEVILS the founder of Jenge Corrupt Evils aka JCE.

    No second chance for Kirr
    Many South Sudanese have expressed that for peace to return both Kirr and Machar need to leave politics, now that the international community have exiled Dr Riek, they need to do the same for Salva Kirr and send him out of SS.
    I don’t really care if Salva Kirr brings in all the Opposition Parties and wins their support, the man is a murderer, a criminal, a tribal chief, a thief, a dictator, an illiterate, illegally occupying a seat that is not his…..etc.
    Kirr doesn’t deserve any second chance, the only way is he must vacate or be forced out by any means possible. And he knows that day is nearing each time the clock ticks.

    • info@southsudannation says:

      Toria,
      I wholly concur with your points which are very poignant and realistic.
      Kirler Kiir doesn’t deserve one more minute of the presidency in Juba. He should either hang and forever be condemned to The Hague or the Solomon’s Island.

    South Sudan
    The reason south Sudan broke away from the North is because the president came on TV and stated that no one any longer has any national identity other than Islam the Christians formed South Sudan out of necessity for survival. The president of South Sudan Salva Kiir is a great guy but the USA and UN have been creating a coup in south Sudan by getting the traitorous Riek Machar in years ago as vice president in the south Sudanese country to help overthrow the young Christian nation..Bush was a globalist.VP Machar is a well known traitor by the south Sudanese and even fought against his own people numerous times by siding with the Muslims. South Sudan is like the USA in that the Nuer tribe are lefties,liberals,radicals and side with the Muslims or any enemy of the Christians in the south Sudan and will fight for the beast globalist system. The UN is tying the Dinkas hands and are their to overthrow the Christian country and many times side with Islam against South Sudan along with always blaming the Christians in the south as the rebels which is not true. The Boar and Dinka are like the conservative christian’s and love God. Machar is a leftist rebel,traitor and of the Nuer tribe.In Sudanese they refer to these idiot leftist as chicken brains only way I know how to translate that lol from Sudanese. Anyway it is the same story all over the earth. A christian nation forms then they are relentlessly attacked,while it is reported they are doing the attacking. Even when obviously the south was attacked by the North say from 300 miles away lol. The papers will report the rebel christian’s in the south attacked blah blah blah..
    Then the UN+USA and the Catholic church uses Islam to attack the christian nation. Then they come in saying peace with UN soldiers looking like the good guy. Then these groups then pass all kinds of regulations so the christian nation cant fight back. Then they set up killings with crises actors and again another christian leader is facing war crimes for something he did not do. Every country has it’s liberal groups and conservatives.In this case it has been the UN, USA Islam and the Catholic Church and south Sudanese Nuer tribe fighting on the side of the beast system. On the right christian side you have Salva Kiir the conservative christian boar tribe and Dinka fighting the beast system.The powers mentioned have encouraged this civil war to wipe out yet again another christian nation. To top it all off this news piece is by an Islamic news radio Al Jizzera. Israel has helped south Sudan militarily to some degree. The South Sudanese report many of the humanitarian aid worker’s are often spies and South Sudanese commandos have arrested some in such cases but then are blamed for attacking UN aid workers.
    A war crime now is anyone who is against the UN beast system. Why don’t we equally investigate the USA and UN’s crimes and money laundering and funds paid directly to the lefty vice president Riek Machar to start a civil war in his own country. Ex army officials in south Sudan and friends will tell you that a good portion of all Aid workers in the country are intelligence operatives. The types that organize crises,killings,fake actors and what not This will be like the fourth time the VP Machar has directly fought against his own people. The USA and UN should be sued for causing the civil war and use this money to rebuild South Sudan.
    What about investigating the lefties in South Sudan.Like Nuer officials that were allied with Islam, Machar the USA and UN.How the Nuer got their money and why they always attacked the conservative Dinka and christian’s. How the Nuer have been allies with Islamic fighters.Where did they get their funding to kill Christians in the south is the much better more logical question But Im sure that will never happen.
    The reality is that it is either the UN that is trying to overthrow South Sudan or it is the central bankers/US government that are there to stop others from taking Sudan’s natural resources and to to capture the natural resources and put them on the US dollar as the reserve currency.One thing is obvious is that someone wants to work with the Vice President Riek Machar as he is a leftist and a traitor to his own people and has fought against the Christian Dinka in South Sudan many times by siding with Muslims and the leftist Nuer. No wonder neither the USA or United Nations wants to work with the President Salva Kiir as he is a Christian and a Nationalist. Thus propaganda must be used against the sitting president to oust him as it is always easier to work with traitors than Nationalist Christians who have principles. Lately news sights are trying to lift Machar up as a religious man and a prophet of the leftist Nuer tribe that is not only insane but highly inaccurate and insane fake news. Hopefully Trump will do the right thing and help the Christians as they are being slaughtered like sheep all around the world.
    Side note to truthers-Don’t forget that the Catholic church worship’s the ancient Egyptian Trinity (Isis Horus and Osiris) and if you think it’s the virgin Mary it’s Isis. Is there another ally of the Catholic Church that has killed as many Christians as the Catholic Church and happens to have a holy book that also puts the Virgin Mary/Isis above Christ hummmm? Pictures of the sun on it’s dome and gates and changed the day of rest from the 7th day of the week to Sun-day the first day of the week? Islam is also Isis.If the Nazi party who killed so many Christians was banned why not the Catholic Church..answer because your already worshiping the beast subconsciously and you dont even know it. Best word description idolatry.
    People of the left will always hate the people of the right while pretending not to be the haters,however the left will try to regulate everything you do including your religion,while the people of the right believe in free will, wisdom and the right to choose.
    Hopefully Trump will help the Christian south and the Dinka tribe. The south Sudanese are some of the best most friendly and forgiving people on earth,that constant forgiveness has also been their downfall.

      John Terbuster,

      It is unfortunate and unthinkable to still honor Kiir with the title “President”. Kiir should not be addressed president anymore. Kiir has reduced himself from being president to Dinka tribal gang leader. Salva Kiir is the world most foolish, goofy, power hungry and tribalist gang leader on the planet. If the South Sudanese are able people and have bright brain, they should not make any attempt to negotiate peace with Kiir gangs group in Juba. Kiir must be forced to reliquish power by force by all means without any exception. He has brought shame to South Sudan.

    Since when has Kiir been from Apuk to apukanize Warrap at the expense of Aguok?
    But nonetheless notwithstanding that contradiction,it won’t do any harm to ask such questions as why the storm from the anger on firing King Malong didn’t Explode.
    It’s good to sacrifice so much time and efforts in writing,but that goes down to waste if the realities behind the written tales aren’t brought to light and clearly explained why they were necessary.
    This is Alhag Paul,the writing star of this forum,the maker of REMNASSA and Dr kwajok’s movement who incited equatorians to set up road blocks to screen of unarmed innocent jieng and others issue of jieng cross breedings and murder them so mercilessly like dogs.
    At such context,who is less and who is more Satan for lack of human sense of rationality,the Killer Kiir in Juba or the inciter to Killing Alhag sitting in peace some where in a ghetto in England?
    But even if the two represent two faces of the same coin,it’s still agreed that feedom of speech is every one’s right and Alhag has the right for his.He just needs to be reminded that,the jieng urban gentils like Peter Bior,Kuir e Garang and the ladies whom he brands as patriots in his non patriotic camp will be too few to make any difference if his sense of day dream is an effort to fool jieng into seeing him as a fellow without connection to road target killings.That rubbish should be kept for a second life in another planet not for this life on this planet.

    • Gatdarwich says:

      false millionaire,

      No single Jenge civilian was ever specifically targeted or killed in any of the road ambushes which occasionally occur between Nimule/Yei–Juba road, but only killer Nyankiir’s militias and armed Dinka–the well known land occupiers were targeted and nailed in few successful ambushes. Also, I completely disagreed with Paul’s argument that there are few or non-traitorous Dinka who are not Dinka nationalists or don’t believe in Dinka Imperialism. Completely self-deceiving. Paul himself is clearly susceptible to becoming a victim of the witty traitorous intellectuals–the likes of Kur, Ayen, and Biar period.
      As per killer Nyankiir’s so-called national dialogue, it’s totally a waste of time and scarce resources because there’s absolutely way in hell to reconcile and dialogue with people that massacred over 20,000 Nuer women, children, and elderly.

You are among most cowards Equatorians who like to challenge everythings that president is trying to do in the country many of Equatorians and Nuers sold to bone to their masters out South Sudan. Now you are playing a game of good Dinkas and bad to divide us, because many of think that dividing Dinkas between bad and good ones is going to work, but it is not. Because we have seen what you are up to, you are trying to use people like Amol Mabior who are jealous Nyandeng Chol;s followers. But ND is the only way out of our situation now.

      Mr Mading, Elhag is not trying to divide you but rather calling on the patriotic dinkas to redouble their efforts and bear on the hardliners to relinquish their tribal attitudes for the sake of one united country that accommodates all the citizens regardless of their tribal affiliations.

    It isn’t true, no one is trying to divide Dinkas, only that some Dinkas have found the truth and seen the light. “When you know the truth it shall set you free.” Remember the story of hardliners in apartheid S. Africa? It was actually the good white people who fought on the side of blacks during apartheid regime. When you find the truth you will be liberated, I mean real liberation. Right now you are blind leading other blinds. Salvation is on the way for you madingo, false M, Alex, Dinka Enclave, John Terbuster, micheal west etc…….
    Amol Mabior;
    Congrats to you, you and many of those good patriotic SS please keep on being on the right side of history, South Sudan need people like you and you are the shining stars in the darkness. Stay away from contamination of such as those I mentioned above here.

  13. Abel Magok says:

    Nothing new with Elhag Paul, other than lies and hatred and I could remember in one of his articles, he said what Dinka done to Equatorian, never done by Arabs of Sudan, imagine a Southerner of his age who knows relations of South and North Sudan since 1947 could released such statement.
    May be the name Elhag itself might be part of sympathy to the North, not really what the Dinka done to Equatorians. Mr. Elhag succeeded in one thing and the rest were disappointment, he succeeded of inciting Equatorians to set up road blocs to kill innocent Jieng as False Millionaire mentioned. Elhag was much inspired by Dr. Riek Machar movement thinking will be the end of Kiir’s government but his wishes didn’t work out, he changed direction putting another hope to his friend Dr. Lako Jada Kwajok, movement but it was another disappointment as Kwajok never been heard or disappeared not known where about and recently Elhag feelings refreshed by Gen. Thomas Cirillo resignation and rebellion thinking would be the best alternative to remove Kiir’s government but he seems disappointed either and the last card now as seen in his article is dividing Dinka, which will not work as I can assure him. The issue of our country will not be solve by lies and hatred and Elhag needs to know this.

  14. Samuel Atabi says:

    Dear El Hag,
    In the Bible, there is a passage which advises believers “not to throw gold in front of swines, because they cannot understand its value.” Now see how some of them are throwing your own golden advice in your face; they can’t get.
    The chief priests of Dinkocracy cut their political teeth under the tutelage of the Arabs. They imbibed the techniques and approaches of domination and marginalization from their tutors. Now, they want to imitate the masters by oppressing South Sudanese.
    To me, these dreamers live in fantasia, a parallel world where the risks they are facing in their effort to achieve their nefarious aims, are not visible. I always wonder how much appetite do these JCE stalwarts have for risks; how many innocent, primitive, sexually-starved Dinka youth are they ready to sacrifice in this unending war?
    Yes, this war will not end until we have broken the back of the JCE enemy.
    While the Arabs were well-resourced from the Middle East and are adept at assessing their existential and political risks, the JCE is fighting its war on a shoe-string budget. The dollars from the Nuers’ oil will get finished soon.
    The Arabs let go of the South because in their calculation, the continuation of the war was detrimental to their economic, social, religious, and political future.
    In contrast, the JCE’s blind and deaf moles are marching like lemmings towards the precipice with abandon. At the end of this war, the Dinkaland will be diminished and all of their marauding citizens will be sequestered in their primitive enclave.
    We will defeat you, JCE.

    Eli,
    U are right.The whites of good will fought along side the ANC against aparathied.One should be very sincere to acknowledge the true fact that their efforts had weighed heavily from the start to thevictory.It’s said in the Bible that,”help yourself and God will help u”.It wasn’t an open door or the sheer ill of the aparathied that attracted those whites to fight on the side of the oppressed blacks.The weight of the ANC leadership lead by Mandela was a driving force.Aparathied was difined as an evil system lead by evil white elites that was apart from the general rational human conducts of ordinary whites.It was that system that was an evil to destroy without touching one single ordinary white’s toe.

    But we should agree to have lost our way with our affairs in RSS.There is a system of justice,law and order in jieng homelands.Even the english colonial elites were impressed and decided to harmonize the code of conducts of justice in jieng rural courts in jieng homelands throughout south sudan in a legal code document named,”ga’non wa’nth a’lal”.The ordinary jieng will never refuse dialogue or to pass the due of justice where it’s denied.But the grave mistake your likes will never understand is refusal to see the misgoverning elites in Juba and jieng ordinary masses as two opposing entities.There is an illusion of that point coming to light with sayed Abil Alier pushing Kiir aside and declaring national dialogue to include all the masses notwithstanding whether they are in opposition to the government or not.But surprise,see the brains of the likes of Alhag soaked in whisky not seeing it as a good opportrunity to exploite.
    Stop parading the sacred vocabulary named,”salvation”,without denouncing the barbaric acts of targeting unarmed jieng on roads.Kuffi Anan,Dasmont Tuto and the UN will be too irrelevant to bring peace to RSS as Alhag day dream of while ignoring the reality right here at arm’s length.The shiling poor Samuel Aabi has his block deep in the mouth of hell without knowing if he thinks violence will yield to him fruits.

    • Bentiu Ramaran says:

      False Millionaire,
      You are a professional liar, dark hearted with evil brain. The national Dialogue Dinka are calling is another way to lure the oppositions into Juba to slaughtered them again but we learned from July 2016 mistake. We are not going to Juba anymore for peace unless Kiir is not in power. However, what kind of legal code brainless Dinka have? The way Dinka chief Kiir runs the government today translate that Dinka are brainless people who do not have an idea on how the government should be ran. If the Dinka have legal code of conduct they follow back home, then they should not be destroying South Sudan today.

  17. Gatdarwich says:

    Dear all patriots,

    You’re all absolutely wrong in believing that there’re non-traitorous Dinka tribalists—and naively reasoning that the patriots should protect these non-existent individuals from being coerced by their fellow traitorous Dinka into joining Dinka’s tribal nationalism movement headed by killer Nyankiir and Jenges Council Of Evils! Dear patriots, trying to protect traitorous Dinka would like trying to pickup poisonous snakes in the middle of the highways, purely because of your unreasonable fear of seeing the deadly reptiles being runover by the fast moving cars on the roads, and stupidly convinced yourselves that the godly created deadly reptiles won’t bite you simply because you saved it from being killed. Dear fellow patriots, don’t be victims to the Dinka’s deception and manipulation tactics. Never trust natural born liars, and cunningly deceptive–manupilative traitorous beings. Don’t never, and ever never attempt to self-detrimentally protect and provide safe havens to the snakes like traitorous individuals. Just don’t simply do it for your own well-being and general safety period

    Peace and Ngundeng bless,

    Your truly—Patriot Gatdarwich

  18. Bentiu Ramaran says:

    Gatdarwich,

    I concure with you Gatdila that Dinka are natural born liars, to prove that their lies placed South Sudan where it is today. Not only that Dinka are natural liars, but they are complete idiot, power hungry, money hungry, and lack nationalism. The Dinka are in power just to steal money and natural resources but not to build and unite the people of South Sudan to co-exist. See the untold damages they caused in South Sudan just one year and half after independent. Nationalists cannot create unnecessary war just to keep their tribal president in power for his entire life.

    • Gatdarwich says:

      Wutnuer Bentiu,

      You’re absolutely right patriot! Dinka are solely responsible for all the indescribable chaos that engulfed South Sudan now. Their only agenda is to steal national resources and destroy South Sudan beyond repair period
      South Sudan will, and shall never be in peace until the patriots take over the leadership from these natural born liars, thieves, deceptive, manipulative, and traitorous creatures full stop

  19. Roberto Kasongo says:

    Alhag Pual,
    The fake National Dialogue initiated by the tribal leader Salva Kiir even if it was genuine, which is not, still will not solve the core issues in South Sudan. The crisis created by idiot Kiir and his tribesmen can be addressed in two ways. First, a military operation that gets rid of the current corrupt system. Second, a political settlement that dismantles Kiirs’s tribal system, addresses the root cause of the crisis and holds those who committed crimes against innocent civilians accountable. Any thing other than the two ways mentioned above will not stop the war. It will prolong the conflict. Kiir has given the non – Dinka lifetime gift by firing murderer Paul Malong. This action by Kiir has created division among jieng masses . Now, Dinka militias recruited by a child polygamist Paul Malong are not interesting in fighting for Kiir any more. They just want to go to their home town in Aweil. The end of the dictator is nearing.

    Roberto Kasongo ( Bana Equatoria )

    • info@southsudannation says:

      Roberto,
      It’s reliably reported the infamous Mathiang Anyor of Paul Malong are running back to Aweil in droves and on their escape, they are exchanging their guns for any piece of food to get them back home.
      Basically, Kiir is on his own to survive and that presumably explains his refusal to attend the IGAD meeting.
      Keep tuned into the evolving demise of dictator Mayardit.
      Editor

      • Eastern says:

        Dear Editor,

        Kiir has no option than to concede and discuss frankly with his peace partners and South Sudanese to bring South Sudan back on track. Kiir’s shouldn’t be allowed to throw tantrum all the time.

        World and regional leaders should rebuke Kiir for his INTRANSIGENCE, not reward him.

  20. mading says:

    Peacemaker. People like me are not fool, there is nothing not divisive in trying to say some Dinkas are good while MTN hunters are out there hunting all Dinkas. I am sure if they catch the so called good ones, they will cut their throat in no time, and that is what Eli Wani need to know about white South Africa. they were not being hunted altogether by black liberators, blacks were looking for whites in power who refused blacks people’s rights. But that is not the case in our situation. Eli, Toria, Elhag, Gatdarwich, and Deng Handball we all people you.

  21. Alex says:

    Matured people with sound mind will understand the importance of peace in S. Sudan. They will not put their interest of job first. The nation dialog is important because it is an opportunity for our people to have their say. It’s time now for those who want to prolong the war to denounce violence
    Our people have suffered a lot. Paul el haag if your ears are deaf to the cries of our people, then wake up. You ‘re enjoying life in UK while our people are suffering. You should stop confusion our people. You heart is fillies with hate but you will not achieve your evil plans. Put people lives first in what ever you want to achieve. It’s wrong to hunt for a position in blood of our people.

  22. mading says:

    Editor. Mayardit will fall on this web only.

    • info@southsudannation says:

      Mading,
      Just wait and see…… we’ve seen Nimeiri fall in Khartoum, Mubarak in Egypt, Ghadaffi in Libya, Mengistu in Addis and so on, so what’s Kiirler Kiir to those ex-presidents?
      Editor

  23. Eli Wani says:

    False M,
    I have always taken the centre position in the political fiascos in our young nation. However I always advocated on behalf of the those victimized and sidelined regardless of affiliation being Dinka, Fertit, Nuer, Bari, Kachipo, Lopit, Jurchol, Kaliko, Tenet etc, and will continue to doing so because I believe that everyone deserves a fair chance in life to prove themselves.

    Madding;
    As we speak Aluel (My HSSH) is the nicest partner I have known, born in Nimule grew up in few places. There are so many good Dinkas out there, most aren’t happy with the way things are going, some come out openly to speak their minds (eg late Isaiah Abraham who was victimized by this very regime for telling the truth, Mabior Garang and his mom Her Excellency Widow of Dr. Garang, Ayeng Jacqueline, Ayuen Panchol, Writer and Author Kuir Garang ,Peter Biar etc
    while others are using the silent treatment to avoid being targeted by radical tribal Right Wings.

    The fact is, there are hard-core radicals in every community, but they are becoming the minority day by day.
    I think the future is brighter when Centrist Patriotic Saints step-up into the fields in bigger number without fear of intimidations and shame of being ridiculed.

    Let’s start changing the tones of language we used towards fellow country citizens and we shall overcome our tribulations, we aren’t the first to experience this type of shock. Part of this mess I blame it on the independence coming too soon, we weren’t well prepared. US and Israel pushed us too fast to serve their interests, i.e the fight against terror and they wanted to use us to resolve Darfur crises, both didn’t work. It’s upto us to stand on our feet and start walking in the right direction. But this National Dialogue initiated by Museveni and Kirr is one sided, we need an ALL inclusive dialogue. Please read the following:

    Look today Tutsis and Hutus are developing Rwanda faster than ever, Kenyans post election massacres laid down guards, even Somalia is becoming a better nation. Don’t dismay, the power of positivity and humility are the only chance S. Sudanese should rely on.

    Editor
    The very same people who beat Nimeiri are the very same people in power now; the question is; where will you get the people with balls to beat the people who beat Nimeiri? Would it be the people who wait and murder women and children on the highways and think that’s the only way to overthrow the government?
    The people who beat Nimeiri; that’s not the way they did it but they were ambushing military conveys and that’s Nimeiri and others fall. The families of the people in power don’t use road or highways but they fly from country to country and from continent to continent.
    People like you who support that kind of innocent murder on the highways are unaware that Dinka don’t let go any murder of their loved ones even if it has been 10 or 20 years they will know where it happened and will take revenge even if it was 30 years ago or not.
    Your families may be in hiding now whether in Uganda, Congo, Kenya or overseas but make no mistake about it; you’ll still come back to Equatoria, Upper Nile or Barh El Gazelle South Sudan!

      I like it that Mathiang Anyoor is now on board. Dinka families are also HIDING in Uganda, Congo, Kenya or oversees……Just PRESS the button…!

    You have proven our point that you dinkas are the most backward and retarded people, real people will seek justice in the court of law and try those guilty of war crimes by rule of law. But not you idiots who don’t understand nothing but violence. Look at your criminal stooge warlord useless Paul Malong, where is he now? Killer Kirr will continue to use you like prostitutes.

    Mathiang Anyoor’s song has always been the same core of your preaching.If u are horrified by such imaginary apoclypse,u are giving impression of being a human being.So better start denouncing your own song before ranting against Mathiang Anyoor’s and that’s what’s justice.

    Paul Elhag is the most dangerous animal of our time! We better take him to a school of thoughts. His f… mind is filled up with hatred against the Jieng. I suppose he finds time to study the Bible and learn from the teachings of Christ!

  29. info@southsudannation says:

    I think the iron portrayed by Juba regime concerning the So called National Dialogue, in which I called it A National Crime Dialogue, headed by Dinka Council of thefts and disgruntled old politicians, is a dying horse that need to be lifted up because, in my entire life on this beautiful earth, I never come across a National Dialogue without viable peace.
    So for South Sudan to have a national dialogue in my view is when we have lasting peace in our beloved nation, so at this very juncture, Salva Kiir and his National dialogue of criminals led by Dinka Council of thieves and disgruntled old politicians must be told that National Dialogue without viable peace is a complete nightmare.
    To conclude, you cannot push a dying horse, you must treat the horse before you jump on its back again, therefore, Salva Kiir and his Dinka Council must bring viable peace to the country before heading for National Dialogue that has no legs at all.

    Dear Mr info@southsudannationar

    We respect your view but I am afraid you are becoming isolated. So please since the majority of the people support the ND including the international community can you please raise your hands up and allow democracy to take its course. Peace can come when people address their own problems and difference. You need to know that chairmanship of the ND was given to right reverend Paride Taban but you the anti peace few equatorians wrote a lot of letters to discourage Paride Taban from taking the role. You people discouraged those equatorians working in Bahar El Ghazal and Bor with NGO to leave work because they are going to be killed. Bother see now the suffering of those brothers from equatoria now in Kampala. They are finding difficulties in paying rent and school fees for their children because of all your negative hatred of Dinka. Dinka and equatorians are the same people but some of you still think as people of 13 century. The people need peace so do not write nonsense. Macneral has no option, he has to denounce violence. Genaral David Okot is now back in Yei IO are back and Thomas Cirillo has no supporters. Where does that leave you. You convinced Thomas Cirillo to defect, now he has messed up his career. He could be the now the Chief of staff. Shame on you. Peace is going ahead and no one should be allowed to derail the peace.
