Subject: Protest Press Statement about massacred of Chollo Innocent Civilians in UNMISS Protection Camp in Malakal Upper Nile State.
We, the Chollo Community Council were dismayed by Barbaric killing of unarmed civilians in UNMISS Protection Camp in Malakal.
It is well coordinated killing plan by the Governor of the so-called the Eastern Nile State, and was accomplished last night by criminal Padang Jieng by murdering and wounding good numbers of unarmed Chollo and Nuer in the internal displaced camp.
We strongly condemn this merciless massacre of innocent citizens who evacuated and escaped to POC for safety but now their fate was vanished under UNMISS.
Central question is how did those killers manage to come into on the watch of UNMISS?
Last time we have cautioned H.E Festus .G. Mogae, Chairman of IMEC and the international community partners to Compromise Peace Agreement about the consequences of the creation of 28 States, knowing that there is burning situation in Malakal that resulted from unconstitutional Decree of 28 States by giving Chollo land to Padang Jieng.
Now, Padang Jieng backed by the President Kiir himself, wish to push Chollo out of ancestral land in eastern side of Nile, including protected people in UNMISS.
The only logical reason for war waged by Padang Jieng militia supported by Jieng forces called SPLA was to terrorize Protected People and to dislodge them by attacking them using smuggled weapons in to the Camp.
The things which UNMISS will not escape from being blamed is how did those criminal murderers manage to bring in weapons with tight security at entrance gate?
What was the UNMISS response to control the situation?
Until this morning they were still burning down shelters that belong to Chollo community.
The world needs to realize that most notorious murder is the President Kiir himself, who initiated the creation of 28 States.
The Massacre of our Chollo Innocent Civilians in Malakal at UNMISS Protection of Civilians Camp was carried out by the soldiers of the Newly Appointed Governor, Chol Thon, of the So-called Eastern Nile state together with his Padang Dinka Militia on 17th February 2016, at about 8:00 PM Wednesday.
The Massacre had resulted in the loss of Lives of five and thirty seven wounded innocent Chollo Civilians, who are being hosted by UNMIS as Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Civillian Protection camp.
The Massacre took place inside the UNMISS Protection of Civillian Camp with the presence of UN Peace Keeping Force from Rwanda, who were well armed even with tanks in order to protect the Civilians.
Unfortunately, those soldiers did not even shoot a single bullet into the air to dispatch the Government Soldiers on scene and to challenge Padang Dinka Militia while their forces were to protect the civilians.
Indeed, this situation is very embarrassing to international community, how will they justify this madness killing in their presence.
The sound question, what have prevented those Rwandans UN Peace keeping Soldiers not to respond to the killing of unarmed Innocent Civilians under their disposal?
All are aware that UN mandated its Forces to use force under UN Charter, Chapter V11 when the lives of people they protect is endangered by aggressor’s soldiers.
In fact, Chollo Community in the chollo Kingdom and throughout the world is saddened and aggravated by this massacre of our people in Malakal. We issued this protest Press Statement to condemn this barbaric and brutal killing of our Chollo Innocent Civillans at the UNMIS Protection of Civilian Camp in Malakal.
In this regards, we are urging you as the Secretary General of the UN and the Chairperson of the UN Security Council in New York to take strong action against the Governor of the so- called Eastern Nile State and president Salva Kiir, who supported unconstitutional appointed Governor of so-called Eastern Nile State, who implemented cold blooded killing of unarmed Innocent Civilians, in order to pressurize them to quit to western side of Nile as they claimed which is impossible under the Sun.
Find more evidences from UNMISS soldiers in Malakal, then the International Criminal Court at Hague must file the case against the murderers in South Sudan.
