The construction of future conflict in South Sudan

BY: ELHAG PAUL, South Sudan, OCT/11/2014, SSN:

It is over 9 months since President Salva Kiir unleashed his dogs of war, the ‘Dootku Beny,’ on the Nuer and the people of South Sudan killing tens of thousands and destabilising the country. President Kiir, Michael Makuie, General Wani Igga, Dr Martin Elia, Ateny Wek Ateny and their blind supporters are still in place engaged in violence and disinformation blitz to entrench Dinkocracy.

Defensively and in a persistent manner they bark loudly hoping to dupe the international community. “This government was democratically elected by the people of this country and the time for elections has not yet come”, “Any moves to replace an elected government by force was unconstitutional and unacceptable.” http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article52545

Obviously, these Dinkocrates have conveniently forgotten that they usurped power on the eve of independence on 9th July 2011. The democratic mandate they received in April 2010 expired with the break up of the then Sudan into two countries.

As everyone knows, elections have not been held in the new state of South Sudan. So what are they talking about?

Listening to and observing these Dinkocrats misbehave conjures up images of people who are out of touch with the reality. They speak with confidence while blocking their ears to the truth being told to them. To the world they are deaf and yet they want the world to listen and believe their side of the story which is completely false.

These Dinkocrats seem to believe in what they say to be the ultimate truth, even when the average person in the streets of South Sudan does not perceive it so. They have unreasonably convinced themselves that they are democratically elected and they must not be asked to cede power.

Whether it is President Kiir or his deputy General Wani Igga or Majok on the street, the vigour, fervour and the conviction with which they spread their lies is just the same. As social theory postulates – when something or a lie is repeatedly said, it gradually becomes a reality to the preacher with the bombarded listener turning into a believer.

In the process the preacher and those being preached to lose touch with reality. In a sense they become mentally corrupted. Could this be the thing that is affecting the Dinkocrates?

Could it be the same thing that sunk IGAD? Or was it IGAD’s partiality? Or is it a combination of both?

Whichever, IGAD is doomed to failure mostly due to its partiality. The songs of “democratically elected” only became sweeteners to solidify their biasness. IGAD does not offer any hope. It prescribes more of the same (SPLM misrule).

This is not peacemaking but rather the construction of future chaos and instability. Where then is the peaceful future that IGAD’s mediation promised? Who in South Sudan wants more of the same?

Who wants the continuation of the current tribalism, thuggery, and the Jieng engineered ethnic cleansings?

In a nutshell IGAD’s mediation represents doom and gloom for South Sudan. IGAD is not working for peace. It is working first for the interest of its heads of states and secondly for an entrenched instability in South Sudan.

So, in order to address the problem of South Sudan it requires focusing on the real root causes of the current problem namely: SPLM’s resistance to democratisation and diversification of power; the creation of private tribal armies like Dootku Beny; vicious Jieng tribalism; lawlessness and the ethnic cleansing of the Nuer.

These are the critical issues that must be addressed by all South Sudanese stakeholders if a lasting peace is to be achieved in South Sudan. What does IGAD then do? It embarks on one plan to patch the SPLM as a solution without plan “B”: http://allafrica.com/stories/201404140864.html

In the last 9 months it has done everything to realise this objective knowing very well that SPLM is the real problem. It is the cancer destroying South Sudan. SPLM in reality is a Jieng machine through which Jieng tribalism is detrimentally implemented in the country.

Disappointingly and unethically, IGAD has consistently worked with President Kiir frustrating the participation of the stakeholders to the extent that now the only parties left in Addis Ababa are the SPLM factions responsible for the chaos.

Interestingly, IGAD now shouts that peace is within reach. Do you see the hypocrisy of this club of dictators? What hope is there for South Sudan under the mediation of this hypocritical body?

Sweeping the real issues that plunged the country into chaos under the carpet and rewarding the very party responsible for it is not going to help in the healing process and the stabilisation of the country.

These issues will not go away, they will not disappear but they will fester and grow until they explode with devastating consequences. What IGAD is doing now in Addis Ababa is the deliberate construction of a future conflict.

So whatever deal they sign now will only afford South Sudanese a temporary respite. More over this deal would only be between Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile only. President Kiir and the SPLM-IG represent the former and Dr Machar and SPLM-IO represent the latter.

Equatoria which would have been represented by the other political parties has been frozen out. So Equatoria is already marginalised and its horrific experiences under the SPLM murder machine have been dismissed.

How can the exclusion of Equatoria which comprise a third of the country lead to a lasting peace? I leave that to you to think about it.

Could IGAD’s behaviour not be seen as sending messages to Equatorians to follow in the footsteps of those who have plunged the country into chaos should they want to be counted, listened to and taken seriously? How responsible is IGAD when it becomes part of the problem by marginalising a third of the country?

IGAD is messing South Sudan and creating for itself two serious problems that will come to bite its members.

First, the manner in which IGAD has failed to fairly mediate the South Sudan conflict has displayed to the world its weakness. In addition to losing credibility in the world, new non-state actors emerging in the region in future will not take it seriously and it may not be accepted to play any role.

Secondly, the South Sudan conflict has shown that IGAD has no fangs. It is all talk and threats without any power to enforce it. Take for example, it declares targets with datelines and nothing happens when these datelines are breached.

Its target of 60 days issued in June 2014 to achieve peace agreement in South Sudan expired in August 2014 without any outcome. Again in August 2014 it issued another target of 45 days for same purpose and it is about to expire within this week without any ray of hope in sight.

These targets have been blatantly breached without any consequences. The question is: why does IGAD bother to set these deadlines if they are unable to see them through?

South Sudan will continue to remain in problems not because South Sudanese are trouble makers, but because IGAD makes choices that prolong instability as if it has rights in doing so.

It is the South Sudanese people’s failure to make use of their sovereignty that has led IGAD to assume the right of a decision making in the country’s affairs in support of a criminal party (SPLM).

The responsibility of this failure falls squarely on the SPLM. To break it down, it is President Kiir’s idiotic government; Dr Riek Machar’s inability to have a foresight and vision and the well proven incompetence of the SPLM G-10.

Who is IGAD to dictate terms and decide for a sovereign people? If this situation was reversed to the IGAD member states, would they accept it?

IGAD is only a mediator. Its role is to assist in bringing peace between the warring parties. It is not an arbiter or a judge to dictate or bully left and right. It does not have that mandate to impose decisions on South Sudanese people.

South Sudanese must realise that without a genuine lasting peace there will not be any security in the country. Thus leaving the country in the hands of a hopeless organisation (SPLM) and incompetent “leaders” who do not know the rights of a sovereign state invites abusive treatment of South Sudan as is played out in Addis Ababa by IGAD.

The state of South Sudan did not come to life without huge sacrifices. Millions have paid for it with their blood and the people endured decades of painful oppression.

For SPLM to allow the state of South Sudan to be played with by IGAD is tantamount to gross negligence. The IGAD process glaringly reveals the ignorance of the SPLM and all the supposed leaders of the various SPLM factions as people who have no idea about what a sovereign state is.

Inward looking, corrupt to the bone, and short sighted they connive with IGAD to make all the wrong decisions about fate of millions of South Sudanese people. Remember, the Troika correctly named the problem in South Sudan as “man made”.

Who are the men who made this catastrophe? Is it not President Kiir and the entire SPLM machine? Think about this.

This catastrophe is made out of a mixture of personal ambitions, tribal interest and abuse of state machinery. Was it really necessary to go to war just to settle a disagreement within the SPLM party?

As it may well be obvious to everybody at this point it is clear that this war is a result of power struggle within the SPLM and the irresponsible short sightedness of the supposed Jieng elites. If they only listened to the American friends of South Sudan in early July 2013 this tragedy would have been averted. Please access this link to see it: http://www.southsudannewsagency.com/news/press-releases/friends-of-south-sudan-warned-of-serious-consequences

SPLM is making all the wrong decisions for South Sudan and this is why the country is collapsing. South Sudan can only pull itself out of this mess if it is represented by caring, responsible, and knowledgeable people who make right decisions about its well being and welfare.

Daran Acemoglu and Jones Robinson in their book ‘Why Nations fail: The origins of power, prosperity and poverty’ convincingly point out that, “poor countries are poor because those who have power make choices that create poverty.”

This finding is highly pertinent in the case of South Sudan and it actually illuminates the bleak situation facing the country.

In spite of all the resources South Sudan is endowed with, the people are likely to perpetually remain poor because of the obvious wrong decisions made by the SPLM leaders described by Gerard Prunier as “idiots……rotten to the core” in their various shapes and forms.

The evidence is already clear. Since 2005 all the decisions made by the SPLM leaders stunted the country socially and economically. First they started by entrenching tribalism. Both President Kiir and Dr Machar ensured their tribes controlled the security sector.

They then distributed over 80 percent of the government positions to their tribesmen without any merits. After this they encouraged an alliance of convenience between the Nuer White army and the Jieng of Bor against the Murle people at the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012.

All these were done while they were busy raiding the coffers of the state mercilessly. As if this was not enough they triggered a war with the Sudan over Panthou (a legitimately South Sudanese area) which they negligently left to Sudan to occupy and claim ownership.

So, right from the start the catalogues of poor and wrong decisions have ceaselessly continued up till December 2013 when it took a deadly turn.

Due to his limited capacity and with the influence of the Jieng cartels President Kiir deliberately ignited the current crisis in the country and encouraged ethnic cleansing in the belief that this would make him and the Jieng powerful, feared and a superior tribe.

This delusion of grandeur as a result has seen the country fall apart. The Jieng need to understand that they can not construct a tribal superiority by crude barbarism. They can not be what they dream on the back of other people blood.

Conventional wisdom tells us that such delusions will be resisted and eventually crashed at a certain point and that point for South Sudan is fast approaching whether they like it or not.

The jieng have the key to halt the gathering Tsunami of South Sudanese anger. The Jieng should not deceive themselves that the support the regime is receiving from IGAD will save the status quo.

The idea of a superior tribe milking everyone else as in Juba now frankly speaking is fatuous. It is unsustainable in this modern world.

While the Jieng may control the army, security, police and the economy, that is not enough in itself to ensure their safety and eternal survival. Some tribes like the Gaddafi of Libya and the Boers of South Africa tried it but it ended in tears.

South Sudan as a country is a socio-political system. All the component parts of the country work smoothly when the system is in equilibrium. What this means is that if all the people of South Sudan are happy the country becomes stable and development takes off. But if some people or tribe are unhappy the country loses stability.

Therefore, the currently destabilised socio-political system in South Sudan can not be repaired or cured by keeping it under the management of the very people and party (SPLM) responsible for its political malaise which is exactly what the IGAD mediation is doing.

The system is broken because one of its components (Jieng tribe) has embarked on a puerile project of superiority. The Jieng have become infected with tribalism and grown too big in the social arrangement that kept the system in equilibrium pre-1983.

IGAD by destroying the initially agreed principle and arrangement of bringing all the people (stakeholders) together to deliberate on a way out has just done a huge damage to the stabilisation of South Sudan.

The SPLM factions and IGAD can strike their own peace agreement without the stakeholders but they must know that their peace product is the seed for future conflict.

Therefore, the people of South Sudan need to fight back to stop this construction of future conflict by:
– Petitioning the UN and Troika about IGAD biasness and demand transfer of the talks to a neutral mediator.
– Highlight the fact that SPLM is the problem of South Sudan and it can not be handed power again after it has destroyed the country. The Interim Government should be lead by people with integrity.
– The SPLM should be held accountable for the destruction of the country and the killing of tens of thousands of innocent South Sudanese people. Principally president Kiir must account for the lawlessness and the ethnic cleansing in South Sudan.
– Highlighting the reasons for IGAD’s failure:
a) its open biasness;
b) narrowing and restricting the talks to SPLM factions only thus disenfranchising the people of South Sudan;
c) rewarding failure and criminality in South Sudan;
d) promoting interest of IGAD member states at the expense of the people of South Sudan;
e) promoting instability in South Sudan and potentially in the region.

    Elhag,

    You message is now getting through to those who matter and are friends of the people of South Sudan. Now hear what the Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan, Donald Booth, had to say about the war in our country: ‘ The conflict, Booth said, was “a collective failure by those who had helped to deliver South Sudan its independence, not least among them the dominant political party that controlled government – the SPLM”.’ (US reiterates commitment to end South Sudanese conflict. Sudantribune.com, article 52683 of 10 October 2014).

    Our American friends should move first to avert a generalized war in South Sudan. As IGAD flounders in its role as a mediator, the flames of war are now lapping at the bushes of Equatoria. Equatorians are slow to anger but once their train has left the station, it will be difficult to easily reverse its trajectory. The American had helped to facilitate the abdication of leaders in countries such as Haiti and ,ironically, Ethiopia. They should now repeat this effort in South Sudan. Kiir should be “persuaded” to relinquish power and go into exile to Uganda. Or, like the Ebola epidemic, the war in our country will be like a rogue runaway train. Please, US act NOW and let the dictator leave!

    Dear Mr. Elhag Paul,
    What is wrong with our people the so called Equatorians? Intellectually, I see many people like you writing excellent articles about the state of affairs in South Sudan, but taking no actions to implement their views. We are all aware that every nation and individual is preoccupied with his/her selfish interest. Therefore, we can’t blame IGAD or SPLM/A in government and opposition for behaving as if they are the sole owners of South Sudan because we have given them by default the their empty superiority over us. If we want the world to take us seriously, we should take up arms to defend our right as declared by Dr. Wani Tombe Lokitari. There are two instruments or power: force and deplomancy of which we have none. So if we want a place in the corridors of power we should be ready to sacrifice our blood to secure it.

    Enough of taking; this is a time of actions!! We know who is the enemy of progress and our people and therefore let us confront him with the language that he understands: GUN. We can’t wait any longer if we need our people to survive in the jungle known as South Sudan,.

    • cos says:

      Kajokaji,why to beat a drum of guns yet many have lost their lives yet there many ways of overthrowing the government.
      Don’t be addicted to gun fight than pen war.writing an article in such a way will make a change.
      I wonder how old you are!

  3. Mr Elhag, it is 100% true as you mentioned that IGAD had failed to neutrally mediate peace in South Sudan. Uganda as a member of the IGAD block is fighting against the revolutionists for Salva Kiir genocidal regime. South Sudanese have signed a Cessation of Hostilities Agreement which demands the withdrawal of Ugandan troops from South Sudan but Moseveni keeps on refusing to withdraw on the pretext that Uganda is in South Sudan to protect Ugandan food … (silly M7). The faked IGAD protocol … etc are evidences which justify IGAD’s incompetences to negotiate a just peace in South Sudan. However the marginalization of Equatorians in this conflict is not to be blamed on IGAD. Equatorians have deprived themselves from participating in the liberation of South Sudan from Kiir’s tribal, corrupt, racist, dull, visionless and genocidal regime. Equatorians are not different from the SPLM-G10 who betrayed Dr Riek Machar. Though Alfred Ladu Gore is the second person in the SPLM/A-IO leadership hierarchy Equatorians failed to rally behind him. There are considerable diplomatic and political support Gen Ladu Goreh and the SPLM/A-IO recieved from Equatorians yet Equatorians army machine on the ground is almost not present. To make it a total discouragement, Thomas Cirilieo said that he doesn’t want Equatorians to be killed like what happened in 1992. This is stupid statement. How would you get freedom if you don’t pay for it? Jesus accepted to die on the cross to secure freedom to mankind especially those who will accept him as their Lord and Saviour. Equatorians have negatively contributed in this revolution and as a consequence, they complacently abundant their role in Ethiopia Addis Ababa peace talks.
    Therefore, IGAD has nothing to do with Equatorians participation in peace talks. It is they who carelessly abundant their role and accepted to be represented by others. Shame on Equatorians! I am sorry to say this but this is what they have placed themselves at that level.

    • Deng Hanbol says:

      Dear El-hag Paul, with all due respect that is not the point. I think it is not right to put blame on Dr. Machar who is fighting the Dinkorates, the Ugandans the SPLA N. and 63 tribes who have suffered a great deal already or that accepted to be slaves of Dinka. Dear Brother EL- Hug,Dr. Riek Machar is a hero at least in the eyes of his Naath community since he was about to overran the Dinka kingdom if Uganda did not intervene and if Obama and Susan Rice didn’t conspiracy against the SPLA IO that was about to capture Juba last Jan. The fact is, the problem is the client relationship between Dinkorates and Equatorians. Gen. Thomas Cirelo was right when he mentioned that Equatorians tribes are very weak or passive tribes and that Salva and his Dinka men will kill them if he (Thomas)rebel against Dinkorates. This means Equatorians accept what is happening in greater Equatoria I mean the people of Equatoria accept Dinka occupation of the Madei lands or the Acholi lands. Their passive acceptance of their fate. Further, the Equatorians are not only betraying their compatriots Naath by reluctance to join, but also betraying their beloved sons namely Gen. Gore and Dr. Wani Tombei. Everybody nowadays, is talking about Equatoria’s cowardice or Equatoria as a passive society and therefore, it is irrational to expect any military support from them. Or their rebalance against their oppressor (Doncrates). Similarly, no IGAD countries, or American can listen to your concerned, if you give in resistance. In other words, don’t talk so much for the sake of talk just go and fight to expel the Dinkocrate from your lands. The Nuer were under the illusion that Equatorians will take arm to resist Dinak invaders. Anyway, from today onward, we have no more illusions about Equatorians. The Nuer generals are determined to dislodge Kiir regime from power with help from or other tribes or not.

      Neither mountains nor lakes nor inaccessible places will present any difficulties to an enemy where there is a lack of brave defenders. And money alone, so far from being a means of defense, will only render a prince the more liable to being plundered. There cannot, therefore, be a more erroneous opinion than that money is the sinews of war. – Niccoló Machiavelli, The Discourses. 1517. Machiavelli- Quote

    Brother Elhaj:

    You would make your great intellectual,national n iternational image cleaner n pure if you ever promote dialoque with ordinary jieng instead of bagging them in thesame rotten onion container with the corrupt power elite.This repeated mistake makes you appear like an isolated immatured ignorant rural school boy,extremely tribalist,misplaced n not any serious to b taken seriously.Dialoque will bring on board the ordinary innocent jieng to the just struggle that will bring genuine changes in RSS that are longed for by all of us including you.

    But if God ever gave you supernatural powers,that you gathered those of the SPLM/SPLA-IO,the SPLM/SPLA elite in the government,the G-11 n the IGAD in a pit:colect jebel conjure,jebel lado n jebel amatong.Form them into one single giagantic stone n crash it on them.You would never witness any single objection from us.In fact we would b more than willing to stand up tall to applaud n even masturbate gratefully to celebrate such wonderful success without moderation.

    The rest of the aspects of the article are fantastic to read.Thank you so much for that.We are for justice n equality.You are truly too correct in suggesting that peace will never come home in as long as there is no just n equal treatment for every one among our citizens.Apart from the power elite,you would b surprised one day to discover that the majority of ordinary jieng are in favor of this position.But give yourself a chance for this golden opportunity.In fact they are marginalized n reduèced to abject conditions of poverty like the rest of the citizens of our 64 tribes.To build a strong front,there is a need to mobilize these masses into one.I am surprised why you have adopted such unbending attitude of dividing them.

    • False Millionaire,

      You mentioned that ” if God ever gave you supernatural powers,that you gathered those of the SPLM/SPLA-IO,the SPLM/SPLA elite in the government,the G-11 n the IGAD in a pit:colect jebel conjure,jebel lado n jebel amatong.Form them into one single giagantic stone n crash it on them”.

      Understand that the SPLM/SPLA-IO are the ones who erected this nation of South Sudan we must not wish them all to die in such a painful death. Instead we should appreciate them despite the difficulties they are going through. without them we would not have the independent nation today. Bear in mind that all South Sudanese belong to either SPLM in government or SPLA in Opposition, wishing them all to die is an evil thinking and foolish act. You cannot wish all of them to die like that, but you can signal some individuals who spoil South Sudan within the parties.

    • J.Chin Jacob says:

      Dear False Millionaire,

      I eventually came to realise that you will one day lead an historic event where neutral/innocent South Sudanese will come out clearly and calls for a consensus leadership that can promise them to unite South Sudanese who ‘ve been badly teared apart by the likes of Paul Elhag who ‘re mad and politically-oriented against a certain tribe despite the fact that his profile is such an heavy weigh that can be recognised or recommended as a national figure who could latter on assists this Nation to grow faster and smoothly but due to African’ short sighted and why not me idealogy, then, that is why you can not miss Elhag’s pathetic articles about Jieng/Dinka on weekly or monthly basis.
      In fact you are the only true friend of Elhag i ever read his comment trying to inject a brotherly advice into tribalist’s mind and i don’t think whether Paul and his close friends will get you right and instead they will accuse you of being a Dinka puppet.

      DEAR ELHAG PAUL,
      CAN YOU STOP SHITING AND PEEING ON DINKA AS A TRIBE AND COME OUT CLEARLY WITH WHAT YOU WANTED TO DO FOR THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH SUDAN INCLUDING DINKA YOU SEEMS TO HATE THEM TOO MUCH AND THERE, I WILL BE THE FIRST PERSON TO EMBRACE YOUR IDEA OF CHANGE OF SYSTEM NOT A TRIBE OR REGION BUT NOT ALSO THROUGH YOUR MADNESS AND SICKNESS ABOUT DINKA.
      YOU HAVE ALREADY SHOWN YOUR PROFILE TO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH SUDAN AND TO ME PARTICULARILY WHO BELIEVES IN NELSON MANDELA’S QUOTES THAT SAYS EDUCATION IS THE ONLY TOOL OR POWERFUL WEAPON YOU CAN USE TO CHANGE THE WORLD BUT ONLY WHEN YOU USE IT IN A GOOD WAY.
      WHY ARE YOU CHASING AWAY THE DINKA WITH WHOM YOU ARE SHARING THE SAME PAIN AND AGONY?
      WHY DO YOU LACK POLITICAL ANALYSIS AND YET YOU CLAIMS TO BE FIGHTING FOR INCLUSIVITY AND INTEGRITY?
      I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A COUNTRY WHERE GOVERNMENT WHICH IS COMPOST OF SO MANY TRIBES BEING BRANDED AS ONE TRIBE SIMPLY BECAUSE THE HEAD OF GOVERNMENT HAPPENS TO BE FROM A CERTAIN TRIBE AND THUS IT HAS GRANTED YOU EVERY RIGHTS TO BANS OTHER TRIBES FROM BEING VISIBLE BUT INVISIBLE JUST TO ACHIEVE YOUR UNPOPULAR WISH OF TARNISHING DINKA/JIENG TRIBE.
      FYI, CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE A WORD OF THANK TO FALSE MILLIONAIRE FOR HE HAS RESCUED YOU FROM TAKING A WRONG DIRECTION AS YOUR TRUE ENEMIES AKA EQUATORIANS RALLIES AND CLAPS BEHIND YOU THAT YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING IF YOU RESORTED IN TARGETING OR ABUSING A CERTAIN TRIBE.

  6. survivor says:

    there is little to pick, or disagree with from your article; as right as you maybe; lumping all of government failures on the wrong group is the biggest mistake you continue to make. as you have acknowledged; SPLM makeup isn;t solely Dinka; ordinary Dinka suffer just as much as people for 62 other tribes of south Sudan.. the lack of roads, hospitals, school. just to name a few is across the board. when you wrongly accuse someone of a crime committed by someone else; it doesn’t bode well for you. Also, while crimes were committed by Dutku Beny, you also need to acknowledged that Jesh Mabor aka white army have also committed similar crimes all over South Sduan. just watch Al Jazeera reporting on Beneiu.
    the poor leadership provided by the duo of Kiir Mayardit and Riek Machar; the rampant corruption, lack of development and the worst of all fueling tribal sentiments that led to this senseless war; is something that needs to be brought to light and be condemn by all.
    in order for us to get out of this mess; selective criticism and gross generalization are only going to further fuel this mess. the only way forward is pulling the carpet from underneath these god-awful leaders. and that can be done, simply by singling them out instead of lumping them with a whole group or tribe, as you continue to do.
    Kiir is Awful and so is Riek and so is the rest of them in the SPLM and the only way we get rid of them is by correctly labeling them and putting them in their own category; we also have to enlighten the mass and caution them from lining up behind any of these wretched chumps.
    the day when the masses of south Sudan realize that they are one and that they are being used by these so called leaders is the day we finally get out of the get out of this mess. we need a true leader, someone that could captivate the masses, someone that could transcendent tribal sentiments.

  7. monychol says:

    El Hag Paul, Equatorians are only tough talkers and that is why I always tells you that whinning, insinuating, complaing , screaming or placing blames left and right are general characteristics of slaves and these are hallmarks of you and you Equatorians people attitudes.
    If you think everybody is getting it wrong, then why won’t you get up your bumpy ass and controll what belongs to you.
    Slave community!!!!!!?

    • Deng N says:

      Monychol,
      Stop insulting others for the same thing you haven’t done it yourself! President Kiir kick Nyandeeng out and so many of your like; what have you done to Kiir to justify you as someone who control what belong to you? If you only depend on Nuer to fight for you; aren’t you the same as someone you describe as being tough talkers and no action? Hypocrisy has no distinction with inanity!

      • monychol says:

        Deng N., I’m not totally against this war but I’m against the way it was initiated and handled.I believes that a war was necessary to settle all scores once and for all before we settle for serious nation building.You are talking about Nyanderng and her being kicked out, she could be back today or tommorrow if she wants.Nyandeng is not against war and how slaves like you should be castrated it is the disorganised way it is being done and mishandled by Makuei and Aleu Ayeny.If it was Dr.John Garang your likes should have been castrated properly we done allows those who do wrongs against us unpunished and if we punish them, we do it severely and properly not haphazardly.
        We now how to take and control what belongs to us that is wwhy I blamed those who are castrating you for not doing it enough and properly and that is Salva Kiir mistake if it was to the will of Jieng, it should had been organised and executed orderly and properly.

        • Deng N says:

          monychol,
          Yeah, Nyandeeng could be back tomorrow in writing but not in reality! Don’t you know that you have to have an army to be relevant in South Sudan and make everything you’re saying possible? How are your words going to be possible when you are hiding somewhere with your head between your legs? How many soldiers Nyandeeng is commanding in the battlefield as the so called an empty general and so do Chagai and Bior?! Name any general of your like commanding any battalion in the field! You’re the only one who still thinks Nyandeeng and Garang still relevant in South Sudan.

          • monychol says:

            Deng N., do you think the reason why Nyandeen is disagreeing with Kiir is about miltary power? The AK47 that you bear are the ones that Nyandeeng and her husband Garang gave you and you are abusing the opportunity and National military assets.You folks are shallow and have caused us to fight on the wrong side of the truth and that is why your asses are being protected by UPDF coz no Dinka will fight for idiots.

  8. Chol Deng Anyieth says:

    Mr. Elhag
    Jieng and the SPLM party are different entities. Jieng is a tribe whereas SPLM is a political party that librated you and other thugs who turned traitors today. The current war should not be used by political dogs in pursuit of positions. Rebellion is not a solution to political differences. If your aim is to eliminate Jieng in South Sudan, then the end will be debacle to you and your shortsighted cronies. South Sudan belongs to South Sudanese. The SPLM-O has members of Jieng. You have been campaigning against Jieng since your failure to get a position in government of South Sudan. It is unwise to call for war in our country. What can we achieve in killing each other?

  9. Long says:

    Alhaz,
    Thanks a lot for your ever enlightening messages. I would wish to add that the only problem we have now is Equatoria, our state of ambivalence in this war has given Dinka the believe and impetus to continue the aggression aganist innocent people to consolidate their power for generations.
    Calling it a Nuer- Dinka war is not helpful because it will eventually come to our land in full swing.
    Do not waste your time talking about Lomuro, he has been recommended by his God father Bona Malual a pierce cretic of SPLA and John Garang who went silent as soon as power got the Bhar El gazal. Lomuro and Wani are not more than Slaves the Pojulus and Baris rejected them coz they are sons of slaves that is why thier only survival strategy is worshipping hands that feeds them.

    All we need is open up a front from Eatern Equatoria, I can see that opportunity coming as Kenya is gradually loosing trust over this idiots unlike M7 who will denied access to arm shipment.

    As soon as this is launched, the heat will be hard to extinguish and we willbe free at a cost

    • Chol Deng Anyieth says:

      Mr. Long,
      Do not call for war in which you will not participate in it. Equatoria and Bahr el Ghazal regions nowadays talk about road connection, generally about development whereas Upper Nile call for peace. Greater Upper Nile will remain undeveloped not because it has no budget for development like other regions of South Sudan but because its people are shortsighted and have chosen to use it as a theatre of useless war. All the rebels from Equatoria and Bahr el Ghazal are wise, they have refused to trigger war within their territories in order to avoid the subsequent debacle of war. Please do not bring war to the peaceful and wise people of Greater Equatoria region

      • Long says:

        Sorry for u Chol,
        Northern Uganda is in pain of Munyakore/ munyarwanda rule. The Acholis, the Madis, the Lugbaras, Amin’s Kakwa, my kins and the Aluru let alone the Mutesot and Karamojong who are cousins to CES blame us for citing with you giving M7 power, we are going to stop that, the Buganda are at our side, when the bell will ring, u will kiss my ass. mark my words

        Chol, for ur information I am the only surviving soldier in my grand fathers house who happens to be a chief. I lost all the five gallant officers in action. today their kids are left for me and my family go bring up. they paid the ultimate price. I do not intend to coil, I rather die for what they died for, liberation from oppression. fortunately my war will not be the gun, but ……

        • BILL KUCH says:

          Long,
          What action are you talking about here? Is it action of rebellion against Dinka? If so, then they were not fighting the same war against Khartoum as other South Sudanese did. And therefore, I would be correct to say that you are following footsteps of your family rebellious. Please, make no mistake because for doing the same thing could take your life as well. I do know that a lots of Dinkas are residing in three Equatorians States for the business purposes, but if you there encouraging rebellion as you are, then those business men would eventually join the army in the matter of a day. You saw an example of what took place in Bor, where people intended to do their business after CPA as the matter of development, but joined army in big numbers after White Army militia of Dr. Riek devastating action. It would sure be the same. Thanks.

  10. Tangata Riri says:

    Mr Paul,

    Don’t be too hard on IGAD. International diplomacy holds that a BAD PEACE is better than NO PEACE at all. It’s clear that as far as IGAD is concerned, there is no strategy involved at all, just tactics – i.e. take a step, see the reaction, take another step and repeat.

    I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for IGAD to deliver a SUSTAINABLE peace. They will deliver a semblance of peace, congratulate and slap each other on the back for their achievement and then shake their heads in exasperation when South Sudan falls back into conflict, exclaiming … “Look at these people, we gave them a peace and here they are again squandering it. What a shame.”

  11. monychol says:

    Thank you both Long and Chol.What you told that perpetual deniar and escapist guy called El Hag Paul is the absolute truth.The destruction of the country starting with the hijack and diversion of the South Sudanese revolutionary movement does not only anger Dinkas but also spured Dinkas to take up arms to get rid of these hijakers and deceptive thugs.Those of Dhieu Mathok Diing Wol, Dau Aturjong, Mabior John Garang and Aguer Rual are Dinkas.
    The mission of revolution was to be achieved in three phases 1: Armed struggle liberation to independent2:Establishment of both physical and social infrastructures and institutions and3: Delver the services that Khartoum sucessive regimes have denied our people.
    Since the CPA was signed and the untimely death of John Garang, these opportunistic thugs took over .The damned down everything, derailled and diverted the entire mission and hope of South Sudanese people and all along they have been playing the game of deception.The evidences lies in all of their actions upto the most recent Khartoum style repressive and most notorious National security bill.This is the last nail on the caffin to all mentally blind and deaf ears South Sudanes that they are in Saddam Hussein Iraq and Gaddafi Libya.
    Those of El Hag Paul are so childish and live in total denial of the fact that it is the Equatorians who are cushioning this regime on their soil.Why don’t Equatorians start kicking their butts in Equatoria instead of whining, complaining, blaming, insinuating and screamming expecting others to do the heavy lifting for Equatorians like children.
    Equatorians, how long do you expects to ride to heaven on the back of others while you folded your legs and arms? Do you expects others everytimes to come to your land to fight opressors be them enemies from Khartoum or enemiees germinating on South Sudan soil.
    Slave tribes you must wake up and do you sacred duty.

    • Long says:

      Monychol,
      Seriously If there is any Equatorian who believes the regime will quit power peacefully then he or she is ultra idiot. The Equatorian failed to recognize the fact that “heat the iron when it is too hot”. the time is now not tomorrow. our Geo location, our terrain and out people is our capital. Its a simple maths, the Nuers push from north denying route to Sudan and Ethiopia and Equatorian push from the South block route to EA countries denying food, and Arm shipment routs simultaneity whether through banditry operations or full scale war.

      The real pain in the ass now is the intrigue and betrayal by our so called big men, who have looted enough, doing everything possible to curtail such efforts. Even Mamur who was once the darling of Equatorian seems to have backed off. ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST as long as we are still talking, jotting the chronically of our times, it with spark one day

      • Chol Deng Anyieth says:

        Mr. Long or Lost,
        I know you are not from Equatoria but u just decided to deceive yourself. If u want to go for war, come to South Sudan and start. Do not instigate others while you are collecting bargades in foreign land

    You will dream and dream until you fail.
    The best opportunity for you peop[le is the Adiss talks otherwise soon you will be flushed out to Sudan. Politically you are booked down and militarilary you are on the age of total defeat if the dry season comes and you insist on your introgence.

    • Alex, we will keep on dreaming believing that truth will always will in the end of the tunnel. Both sides need Summer to make extra territorial gain. The light of truth which is with the freedom fighters will flash out the dark in you sooner. And you Equatorians unless you accept to be the tail of kiir dinka government, you wont join the quest of freedom in South Sudan. We are sons and daughters of a married mother born to live free in our God-given land; we shall never give-in to bondage and slavery. Freedom fighters under the leadership of Dr Riek Machar have dedicated their entirety to liberate South Sudan from kiir’s bigotry regime.

  13. BILL KUCH says:

    Paul,
    For you talking about Dinka could even make it worst because your article is purely representing rebels. Also, blaming IGAD would not change anything neither for we started the war not IGAD. We as South Sudanese in government or rebels position need peace not IGAD. So, that means if the rebels may not be satisfied with government proposition then they have right to turn it down and fight on like Dr. John Garang did with Khartoum. It is not about Dinka, but if it is? Is your complaining solution online would change a thing? Thanks.

    • Nuer-Another Israel in East Africa says:

      BILL KUCH:

      I couldn’t agree with you more. The solution to this mess is with us. No need to blame IGAD for it. The only mistake is for IGAD members to meddle into our own internal affairs. If they could just leave us the hell alone, the solution isn’t that difficult. We can resolve it very easily. Now with IGAD members involvement, the situation become more complex than it was.

      We are very sick with this protracting mediation. If IGAD really want to solve our problem, let them pull their troops out of south Sudan and leave us alone to solve this problem. Weren’t children and on top of that, we are a sovereign nation that can deal with it owns affair. Bill Kush, please tell Kiir to stop licking Museveni Kiir and let go of his army. Used the money being sucked out by his forces to recruit more gelweng who can face Nuer White Army and let us decide from there. Kapish!!!

    You are so miserable!how come you come back to my bed with the old rubbish when you know so well that you n me are divorced forever?I am the boss of my disteny with a hard solitary brain to go with it.I am not any one’s water boy like you in being here.The dirty bag of the rotten onions that are you must go down to the pit with the supper natural giagantic stone to crush it to ashes.You are the only coward nuer who is afraid of hell n I am surprised.This is what you do to others.We would never to do it to you ourselves poor naughty boy.But the cry of the blood of the victims will anger God one day n you will experience the bitterness of the evil deeds that you do to others.

    SPLM/SPLA-IO n SPLM/SPLA government are two different entities n we know.The G-11,the stakeholders,the civil societies,the religious groups, the rest of the ordinary citizens n many countless numbers of neutral groups are different entities.We also know.Where do you get the strange idea of wanting to make to believe that any south sudanese must be either a pro SPLM/SPLA-IO or a supporter of the government?I invite our fellow citizens to read our exchanges n they will find you extremely stupid.American arrogant ghetto boy would tell you that you have your head in your ass.You have sealed yourself in a rotten onion bag for a definitive hell fire my most unfortunate brother.You have betrayed yourself in helping others so much to understand your evil intentions that must be the guiding principles of the SPLM/SPLA-IO.For example:when the rebel forces captured Bantiu,they murdered every one in town including childern n women of all ages after raping them.You did thesame thing in every town,in every settlement n in every cattle camp that ever fell to rebels.Why?becouse your political line is clear.That is that those who are not against you,who are not supporting you,but who are neither supporters nor against the government are just pro government therefore you give yourselves the right to wipe them out from the face of the earth.That’s exactly what you have done.That is exactly why you are here for to achieve with the foolish man’s sluggish propoganda that are more than too easy to understand.Do you really believe that others are so stupid therefore not have understood your ill ways since long time?I would like to help you to tell you to put down arms n seek settlement peacefully by negotiations with your enemies in the government.Intending to go on a rampage again to slaughter innocent citizens may never be in your favor.Don’t be so foolish to fail to understand that the people you are intending to slaughter every where in south sudan have mobilized themselves already n are waiting for you to pay you back with thesame evil coins that you have handed down upon them without mercy.The gate of hell is wide open for you.To refuse or accept it is none of one else’s business.The choice is yours.Enjoy it!!!

  16. False Millionaire,

    What are you smoking on Coward Equatoria? You always talk about the death of others don’t you know that something out there awaiting for your ass to die mother fucker. On your comments, you said that all the SPLM/SPLA-IO and SPLM-G11 should be dumped in the pit and then collect jebel conjure,jebel lado and jebel amatong and throw them on the pit in order to get ride of all the SPLM/SPLA/SPM-G11. I said no not everyone in the SPLM/SPLA should die that way because 99.9% of South Sudan population belong to the SPLM/SPLA-IO. If not you, but your mother is belong to the SPLA. The word “SPLM/SPLA” is the mother of South Sudan nation.

    I strongly believe that all the South Sudanese belong to SPLM in government, SPLM-IO, SPLM-DC, SPLM-G11. All South Sudanese soldiers belong to the SPLM in government /SPLA-IO. All the stakeholders belong to the SPLM/SPLA because they were all appointed by Salva Kiir including faith groups to represent the SPLM in government in peace talk in Addis Abba. SPLM/SPLA brought independent to you all cowards, hopeless, and helpless black ass who did not take part in South Sudan struggle for independent. No doubt anyone that is not belong to either groups did not take part in the struggle for independent of South Sudan.

    False Millionaire, you are so hypocrite damn ass. Instead of calling yourself coward, you call your liberator coward. I think you are abnormal God put your ass in the brain and replace your ass with the heart. If I am the coward, I would not have been able to liberate you, mother, father, and sisters from Kampoata, Torit, Yei, Kiala, Kekeje, etc from Arabs.

    I learn better your cowardliness in 1992 when our SPLA forces commended by CDR John Kong, CDR James Koang Chuol, CDR, James Hoth, CDR Wang Chiok, CDR Pieng Deng, CDR Oyai Deng Ajak entered Juba. Thomas Cirio defected to the SPLA not because he wanted to be in the SPLA, but because he thought the SPLA would captured Juba. As you know Equatorians are always sided with the persons who have more power. If Cirio, knew the SPLA would lost the battle in Juba, he (Cirio) would never have join SPLA. As you know you those in Greater Equatoria regions you never want to take risk, but you like to take the advantages of successful risk takers. Now you are enjoying South Sudan wealth more than those in Greater Upper Nile and Bar El Gale who liberated South Sudan.

    False Millionair, you said “Don’t be so foolish to fail to understand that the people you are intending to slaughter every where in south sudan have mobilized themselves already n are waiting for you to pay you back with thesame evil coins that you have handed down upon them without mercy”. Understand that Nuer are already in the football with their cousins, Nuer souls sell out, 62 tribes, Uganda Military, SPLA-N, JEM, Egypt, and M23 of Congo for ten months.

    What mass mobilization are you talking about? Do you feel that the Equatorians are not taking part now in the war? Please if you determine to go to war with Nuer, make sure you carry with Jabel Konjure,Jabel Lado and Jabel Immitong to Greater Upper Nile regions as there are no mountains in Greater Upper Nile to hide other wise you will never see those mountains again.

    I wonder why you guys are so brave and strong fighters in South Sudan nation web site while in 1980s until 2005 the Sudanese soldiers who were in juba registered all young Equatorian females in every village and surrounding areas. These young females would report themselves to military barracks and had sex with Arabs soldiers overnight and they would go back to their villages in the morning and you men never said anything to the Arabs.

    Where was your braveness and your men hood? Last year before December 15 you killed Dinka General on his way from Juba to Torit for no reason. You see when South Sudanese are in peace you want war. When the door of war is widely open you stick your tells between your legs like visiting dogs seeking for peace. You are coward, foolish, devil, and visionless human being. Bear in mind that God punishes pretenders more than wrongdoers.

  17. GatCharwearbol says:

    Dear False Millionaire,

    A cursory look at Bentiu Ramaran’s comment has nothing to pain you much to warrant such writing. I believe something was bothering you prior to this comment; and you now utilize this as an opportunity to get it off your chest. All the same, you are your own boss and can do whatever pleases you. If hurling insults where they are not fit pleases you, be my guess.

    As explicitly stated by Bentiu Ramaran, 90 percent of South Sudanese are divided between SPLM-Juba and SPLM-IO. Nothing to repudiate unless you are not well-verse with what is taking place in South Sudan! To put it bluntly, all the remaining 63 tribes are in bed with SPLM-Juba. It is only the Nuer tribe against them all. If you are not in neither camp, you just need to say so instead of going ballistic. Your position would be respected.

    Even if all your wishes of magically terminating those at war were to be granted, that would not add any value to your life. You would still be as miserable as you have been. Think about it, when Salva Kiir trained his private army purposely to ethnic cleanse the Nuer tribe, his wish has indeed be granted, but what value has added to his life; only misery. Life has been running from country to country begging for military help. This has too been granted, what he gained, nothing except more misery.

    Now, I would like to give you a brotherly advice: Take side and act. This is a difficult time for a real man to take action and not just sit on the fence. Be on the correct side of the history. The correct side does not necessary means the side where GatCharwearbol and Bentiu Ramaran chose, it is the side you think is on the right. If you think it is SPLM-IO, it is your choice; if you think it is SPM-Juba side; it is as well your choice. There is a reason why I would like you to take side. Take a look at this poem beneath:

    “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me”.

    This is a very profound poem with deep meaning. Rather than sitting on the fence, it is necessary that you speak out so in the end, someone will be there to speak out for you. Everybody needs someone to depend on. If you let these Dinka people finished without speaking out, who will speak for you when Nuer come for you? If you let these Nuer people finished, who will speak out for you when it is your turn?

    The choice is entirely yours; mind is just an advice. You can choose to remain Neutral and it is fine as well.

    • Mathian Deng says:

      GatCharwearbol;
      You said it well that “Kiir trained his home grown private army to ethnically cleanse the Nuer tribe” If that’s the case that you knew that very well; how is that logically making any sense when you go to Bor, Malakal and Bentiu to take revenge to innocent civilians that has to do with either Kiir or politics in Juba?
      What does innocent Dinka, Chollo/Chulluk and Nuer who die in the entire region of Upper Nile has to do with what President Kiir did in Juba? What are you fighting for when your own Nuer people take refuge in Bor and Bahr El Gazelle region?
      Are you aware of hundreds of thousands of Nuer who ran away from you to Dinka areas in Bahr El gazelle and Bor? If your own people can ran away from you for fear of being killed by you; then this is why no any other tribe would want to fight alongside you.
      If Salva Kiir and those around him have secrete agenda to killed Nuer people; then why are Nuer people running to those Dinka regions for safety instead of Nuer regions? Shouldn’t it be easy now for Kiir to kill Nuer when the Nuer actually Bahr El gazelle region than when they were in Juba? If you people want to be respected; then you should develop common sense.

      • GatCharwearbol says:

        Dear Mathian Deng,

        Truth needs to be told. Until you differentiate yourself from Salva Kiir, Makuei Lueth, and the company, I’m treating you as the same liars running up and down in search of rental military to come annihilate Nuer for you. The cheap propaganda that there are Nuers taking refuge in Bor is laughable. I can concur with you if you are talking about those in UNIMISS compound. This I can’t deny. If you are right in your claim, why did you murdered those in UNIMISS compound leave alone those you shamelessly claimed to be living outside of UNIMISS camp in Bor. You remind of Makuei Lueth here.

        Coming to Bhar El Ghazel, do not count the relatives of unity state governor, Joseph Nguen Monytuil, Mathew Paul Jang, and Bapiny as Nuer. These are your allies from Bul Nuer community. If these are the people you are talking about, you are correct. Those Nuers in Western Bhar El Ghazel are in UNIMISS mostly women, if there are any in Lake and Northern Bhar El Ghazel states, I am sure they are in UNIMISS camp as well. So tell me, what your point here? You expect me to buy into these cheap shots. You are pathetic.

        By the way, how signing military cooperation with various countries coming

        • Mathiang Deng says:

          GatCharwearbol;
          Please don’t ask me what my point is because you didn’t get my point the first place! Since you admitted that the Nuer civilians are taking refuge in UN compounds at Dinka areas; then the question is; how come your people don’t trust you enough to be with you in your areas in Bentiu and somewhere else? The reason why your own Nuer civilians don’t want to be near you is because they know what you did to them in Bentiu when you massacred them.

          Tell everybody here on this site a single location control by Nuer with Nuer civilians? None! And that says a lot about you people’s IQs! What would be the logic of massacring your own people in Bentiu because of what happened in Juba? I would never understand the common sense behind it and so do many others here. Who are you going to convince here that Dinka are out there to kill Nuer civilians? Maybe the people wearing the same IQs as you are!

        • Mathiang Deng says:

          Gatcharwearbol;
          Where is the governor of Jonglei from? Is he and the countless other Nuer with him governing in the UN compound? Now who is a pathetic liar?

      • Mathian Deng,

        Please stop deceiving your self. The are no Nuer ran from Nuerland to Bor and Bar-El-Gal for safety. The Nuer in Bor have been in Bor long before the war broke out in Juba. The Nuer who left Unity State for Bar-El-Gal are Nuer soul sell out food lover of Mayom. These Nuer of Nguet Manytuil of Mayom never sided with Nuer since 1983 when the SPLA movement was one.

        In stead these Nuer of Mayom, we do not count them to our Nuer people because in 1983 they sided with Arabs and fought with Nuer. 1991, they sided with Arabs and fought with Nuer. In 2013, these Nuer of Mayom sided with Genocidal and tribal government of Kiir and they are now fighting with Nuer. These Nuer of Mayom they always sided with whoever have food. If you have plenty of food to give them, they will side with you no matter how bad you treat them.

        I know very well now their women are being rapped terribly in Bar-El-Gal, but as long as people of Warrap give food, they will never report this an unacceptable act. I know my cousin in Gorial and Aweil are most rapists in South Sudan.

    • Nikalongo says:

      Ramaran/Gatcharwearbol,

      The people looting your oil money, killing your people and sending more to a life of misery in exile and UN camps are the Dinka and Nuer soldiers and politicians. For proves, go to cities and towns in East Africa. There is a collections of whole villages from Nuer and Dinkaland living in luxury, studying in expensive schools and enjoying life. Stop blaming Equatoria for your miseries. Equatoria is not interested in your oil money and wars with roots in some savage and superstitious past. How many times have you been reminded about the insensibility of that war? But because you and your leaders are beneficiaries of the organised disorder, the death and misery of your people back in the hills, bushes and valleys of Bentui, Mayom, Warrap, Aweil, Akobo, etc means nothing to Riak, Kiir, Gadet, Koang and all the other bloodthirsty hooligans. Take your wars and complains to your backyards. Equatoria remains a no go zone to agents of war and destruction. Taking sides is your war is like legitimising it. That war has no national agenda. A Dinka General on his way to Torit was not killed by anybody from Equatoria. Ask Kiir and Riak. They are in a better positiion to give u an answer.

      There is also this outdated nonsense of liberating Equatoria. Dinka and Nuer liberated no body. 75 % of all war death were victims of inter-communal wars between the Dinka and Nuer. You had no time fighting the Arabs. It took a lot of efforts and time for the others communities and neighbouring countries to make peace between the Dinka and Nuer. Villages and towns in Upper Nile were emptied, inhabitants killed or displaced to inhuman camps by the senseless rivalry between Nuer and Dinka leaders. Ramaran, stop deceiving yourself. Today we celebrate their deaths as price for independence. What a lie! What other titles are you contemplating for the Nuer and Dinka militia soldiers dying in your current war? Are they also martyrs for our second independence? If there is a bit of wisdom left in your leaders, implore them to end the war and let your people go home. There are better ways of displaying braveness. Killing, maiming and displacing people in Upper Nile is not a sign of bravity. Only Idiots enjoy the death and misery of their citizens and ur leaders; Dinka Kiir and Nuer Riak are idiots. Instead of blaming Equatoria and Mr. False, sue for peace and do it now.

      • Nikalongo,

        I never want to comment on your posts since this web site was created because first, your comments do not make any sense. Second, I do not have problem with you personally and Equatorians in generals. Third, you do not know how to differentiate right from wrong. For example, your arguments are always about Dinka killed Nuer and Nuer killed Dinka without giving reason why they kill each other, how they started killing each other, and how would you solve the problem if you are the judge or higher authority.

        False Millionaire is another idiot like you who does not know how to give constructive criticisms to his peers. He (False Millionaire) uses disrespectful terminologies and abusive words in his comments all the times. He has no clue how the problem started in Juba and how the problem should be solved. His arguments are either God can kill all the Dinka and Nuer or God compile jebel conjure,jebel lado and jebel amatong together throw them on SPLM/SPLA: SPLM-Juba, SPLA-IO, SPLM-DC. SPLM-G11 to kill them all. What kind of human being is False Millionaire? Both you Nikalongo and False Millionaire do not know how to make judgments at all and are not critical thinkers but naïve contributors.

        For your information, Nikalongo, the people that are dying in the current war will be remembered as true patriots and martyrs. There is no question about that my friend. Please start giving constructive comments from today beside Dinka killed Nuer and Nuer killed Dinka things you have preaching without going any further. You need to elaborate your argument behind this.

          Ramaran,
          Patriots and martyrs for killing innocent civilians? What a way to remember murderers.
          Stop the killings after that u can find out who started what in a manner that ensures justice for the people u killed. It is true Dinka killed Nuer and Nuer killed Dinka. Accepting that fact is important for ur people to reconcile and move ahead. It is first grade hypocrisy to assume only Dinka killed Nuer or Nuer killed Dinka. Me and Mr False are no hypocrites.

    This article would not be accepted to be published anywhere on a print media (News paper/Magazine). It contains serious elements of hate and targeting. It also incites chaos. It is pitting some tribes against one tribe.

    That to me is un-peaceful. Big intellectuals like Elhag Paul should be preaching peace, not violence. It is the only way they will best be remembered.

    • info@southsudannation says:

      MR. MAJONGDIT,
      FIRSTLY, THERE ARE NUMEROUS STEREOTYPICAL ASSUMPTIONS YOU’RE MAKING.
      THOSE PRINT MEDIA WHO WON’T PUBLISH MR. ELHAG PAUL’S ARTICLE ARE FREE TO DO SO, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE RIGHT.
      SECONDLY, YOUR BLIND ASSUMPTION OF DESCRIBING THE ARTICLE AS ‘HATE’ SPEECH AGAINST ‘ONE’ TRIBE IS UTTERLY A PRESUMPTION OF YOUR PREJUDICE. WHY SHOULDN’T WE CRITICIZE THAT ‘ONE TRIBE’ THAT IS AT THE CENTER OF ALL THE DISASTER AFFLICTING OUR NATION NOW.
      FINALLY, TO AGAIN MAKE THE PRESUMPTION THAT ‘BIG INTELLECTUALS LIKE ELHAG PAUL SHOULD BE PREACHING PEACE, NOT VIOLENCE,’ IS AGAIN A STEREOTYPICAL ILLUSION THAT THAT ONE TRIBE ALWAYS TAKES AS A DEFENSE.
      SERIOUSLY, AS AN INTELLECTUAL, YOU MUST ACCEPT SERIOUS CRITICISM AGAINST THE HORRENDOUS ACTS AND CRIMES BEING CALLOUSLY COMMITTED BY THIS ‘ONE TRIBE’ AGAINST THE ENTIRE NATION AND KEEPING SILENT COULD BE ASSUMED AS COMPLICITY AND ITSELF A CRIME ON OUR PART.
      LET ME FINALLY REITERATE THAT THE SOUTHSUDANNATION.COM WEBSITE WILL ALWAYS BE AN EXCEPTION. WHAT IS PAINFULLY HURTING WILL BE OPENLY AND FEARLESSLY PUBLISHED HERE.
      EDITOR

        Editor;
        I believe you’ll understand what Majongdit is saying when you one day see the three Equatorian States burning with bodies everywhere in the same way it happened in places like Bor, Malakal and Bentiu. And that will not be happening either Dinka or Nuer for the second time. People often say “Human beings don’t use their own ears to listen sometimes but use their own eyes to see what they don’t want to see in order to listen and soon what Majongdit is saying will be proven correctly!

  20. Majongdit,

    I know you want every media to act like SSTV, which preaches Salva Kiir’s dictatorship vision. The SSTV does so because they are being paid by Kiir. However, South Sudan nation web site is a non-profit media that serves the interest of concern South Sudanese interest. In your opinion, anyone point out that the government is corrupt from the right to the left and from the top to the toe is preaching chaos because you are a beneficiary of this brutal government.To my understanding, the editor is not being paid by Kiir’s tribal government to promote Kiir’s tribal vision to rule South Sudan for the rest of his life. The editor has obligation to publish any article that gives constructive criticism that he (Editor) believes South Sudanese can learn something from. The Editor is one of the few patriots South Sudanese who need South Sudan government be restructured from the top to toe from the right to the left.

    Folks,

    Have you heard that the SPLM Mafiosi are regrouping in Tanzania, complete with the usual actors?! It is scary: the more things change the more they remain the same. South Sudanese are in big, big trouble.

    • Elhag Paul says:

      Hi Choromke
      Don’t worry. If Dr Riek betrays his own people he will only be cancelling himself from the power circle of South Sudan. He will quickly become a nobody and the war will not stop. Just read this article as a barometer of the situation:
      http://upperniletimes.net/news/nuer-fighters-reject-arusha-deal-keeps-salva-kiir-power-threaten-fight-without-riek-machar-movement/
      Just as you hinted I had a brief conversation during the weekend with someone who is well informed and surprise surprise he backed what you said with more details. The powers that matter are now certain that Juba is in an advance stage of building a dictatorship. The security bill appears to be a blessing in disguise as it has made things to click for the powers that matter. Let us just continue with the opposition while the chips fall in place. There is no way South Sudanese people can put up with these Mafiaso. Have a good time and take care. God bless

    Bantiu Ramaran:

    Nikalongo n me only advice you to abandon savagery n seek peace by way of dialoque,understanding n negotiations with your enemies in the government.If this is what makes us idiots,that’s very fine with us.We choose to sit neutrally to watch you.It means the field n the roads are open for the killings between you n the government.If this war could be limited to the two of you,you will never witness one single objection from us.But don’t be too stupid not to understand that,the cold blood slaughter of innocent civilians by your forces is a most wicked evil that will drive you n your likes to hell fire.Please mark my word:it will b surprised if your barbaric movement lasts a few years.It would no longer be the government that will mobilize to fight you,it’s thesame civilians that you massacre that will stand their ground to teach you a lesson you will never forget.It’s most unfortunate that God gives good health but rotten brains to such people like you.I am sorry to say,but you are only good for hell.

  23. False Millionaire,

    I am so sorry for debating with the devils like you. The Satan who is always do not see the crimes he is making in darkness. I am sorry that God give you the mouth that can say no make sense things and throat that can allow you to swallow food, but denied you ability to think and see the truth.

  24. False Millionaire says:

    Dearest Nikalongo:

    I am sorry to disturb.But see brother Ramaran calling us devils,satans n idiots:how so unfortunate he n his likes are?they are going too blind n have no idea of the tragedy they have driven the society into.They believe they can march into Juba to seize power to establish a nuer kingdom in south sudan.To do what with it?nothing.But while on the way to juba,their forces as usual would slaughter everyone on the way who would be neither nuer nor supporter of their movement or pro government.In fact we all know very well, human beings are never stupid.Their ill intentions are more than too well understood since long time.If they pursue the rampage of violence as they have done before,they would certainly inflict heavy casualties.But that could never mean that they would not take heavy casualties as well.Even worst,a barbaric savage tribal movement seizing power after killing everyone who does not support them:that is an impossible dream.Going to hell fire is exactly what they have programmed themselves into.

    But things must be made very clear.After they should have dared to attempt the impossible,that is violent seizure of power in juba;that as that would be doomed to failure with thousands of innocent lives lost,it will be the precise moment they would find themselves forced to seek dialque,understanding n peace by negotiations.They do not see any common sense in us advising them that the hour for suing for peace is now but never after the lost of more lives.But who is responsible for everything that has gone wrong in RSS including the out break of the violence?Those in their movement,the elite in the government n the G-11.What is the responsibility of those of us with the ordinary masses?None.Would this mess be corrected by the will of one single tribe?No.But as we stand neutral,they are bitterly disturbed n choose to call us satans,devils n idiots.That’s just ok.But I swear to God they will come back with broken teeth,castrated testicles n lost limps to join us in total desperation.Sincere n honest individuals like us can never fail to predict things most correctly.The day of true changes in RSS will come.But it would only be brought by the unity of constructive forces that will come from all our 64 tribes.

    Actually I am somehow disappointed with this uncle called El-Hag for the fisrt time because of his continues manners of supporting and diservicing Dr Riek at the same time; how can you be the Devil and Angel at the same time.

    Anyway they say it is freedom of expressions…go ahead but I am wondering if we shall get solution soon with this kinds of mentalities in this country. You should have meet with Dr Riek and discuss with him so that he can include your name next time than bumpimg arround and spoiling his name on this net for the war he did not initiate.
