The memory of the painful ordeals: How Kiir cooked up the Nuer massacre

By: Daniel Wuor Joak, SPLM-IO Representative, Scandinavian Countries, DEC/23/2014, SSN;

One year has already elapsed now since the most deadly and infamous “Juba Massacre” occurred, where over 20,000 unarmed Nuer civilians were indiscriminately massacred by the so-called Presidential Protection Unit known as “Dukubeny”. Dukubeny militia was a band of 15,000 Dinka youth drawn up selectively from the predominantly Dinka states of Northern Bahr El Gazal and Warrap with specific aim to be trained, indoctrinated, equipped and directed against any potential challenger to President Salva Kiir’s dictatorial leadership.

They were collectively brought and trained at outskirts of the capital Juba at Luri, where Dukubeny militias had enjoyed special privileges from the regular SPLA soldiers.

During the middle of November 2013, where I happened to be in Aweil, Northern Bahr El Gazal State along with some colleagues from Greater Upper Nile States inspecting school conditions at various Bomas, Payams and Counties in each of the four States of Greater Bahr El Gazal of Western Bahr El Gazal, Lakes, Northern Bahr El Gazal and Warrap. By then I was the state minister of education, science and technology in Upper Nile State. We were supposed to be three ministers from Greater Upper Nile to tour the four states of Greater Bahr El Gazal respectively.

Unfortunately, one of our colleagues Hon. Gai Joak from Unity State did not make it due to some ailments where he was referred to Nairobi, Kenya for further medical treatments. So we remained two only; Hon. Stephen Par Kuol and myself along with our team leader Hon. Bol Makueng, Deputy National Minister of Education, Science & Technology. He accompanied us together with several senior staff members from the national ministry of education in Juba who represented various directorates.

One of them was Mr.Tut Matthew Banypiny Chol who was then the Executive Director in the office of the national minister of education Dr. John Gai Yoh who also perished during Juba massacre of 16th – 19th December 2013. Mr. Tut Banypiny – a masters degree holder and US citizen who took the courage like those South Sudanese who lived in diaspora during the previous SPLM/A and government of Sudan war, and returned to the nascent country after the signing of the CPA to participate jointly for the building of the country.

May God rest his soul in peace and all those thousands of unarmed Nuer civilians brutally massacred in Juba and other towns like Bor, Bentiu, Leer, Malakal, Renk, Mayom, Nasir etc. by the heartless government soldiers of President Salva Kiir. It is a very painful and sad memories for all those who have lost their loved ones during such massacres and the remnants who survived the onslaughts are still being hunted by the same brutal regime in Juba on daily basis.

Over 100,000 IDPs mainly from Nuer civilians are still languishing in various UNMISS compounds in Juba Malakal, Bentiu, Bor, Wau etc. under most deplorable conditions where most of them got depressed, facing imminent death from different curable ailments, lack of adequate shelters and hygienic conditions, malnutrition due to lack of food and other basic human necessities.

The same government in Juba is denying them their basic human rights to be relocated to safer areas by UN and aid agencies in order to use them as human shields to pressurize the SPLM/A Resistant Movement to accept an urgent and a cheap deals.

While still in Aweil, the then state governor Lt. General Paul Malong Awan now chief of staff of SPLA, had invited us for a dinner in his official quarters, in which he lectured to us about his important mission to Juba, where he was urgently called by the president to undertake some special assignments.

No wonder, the governor was boasting about his new assigned task that he refused to fully disclose to us except that he denounced publicly both the president and his former vice president Dr. Riek Machar that they would very soon be challenged in the SPLM leadership by young energetic leaders like himself to assume the overall leadership role of the country.

General Malong jokingly emphasized to us that power struggles within the SPLM leadership would emerge very soon where eliminations of key figures would be carried out for sure if the situation remained the way it is.

After we had our dinner, General Malong offered us a gift where he ordered one of his bodyguards to carry two bottles of whiskeys – Black Label of (4.5) litres and Red Label (1) litre to our car where our late brother Tut Banypiny was assigned to take care of, which he did without hesitations. Tut Banypiny was a kind young man with full energy and committed to his work tirelessly.

No wonder the well prepared dinner in General Malong’s house was infact meant for celebrations of anticipated and planned Nuer massacres in Juba and other towns which none of us innocently unware of including the victim late Tut Banypiny. General Malong hastily left us in his state’s official guest house for Juba in the following morning to conspire with president Salva Kiir on how to get rid of Dr. Riek Machar and his Nuer henchmen resided there.

After two days we departed again for Warrap where we met hostile reception from the State Governor Madam Nyandeng Malek who adamantly refused us entry to her state right from Warrap airstrip for unknown reasons.

So our UNMISS helicopter had to be re-routed to Wau, capital of Western bahr El Gazal State where we were warmly received by the state governor H. E Razik Zakeria Hassan at his office during the afternoon hours after our arrival there. After we spent a week in Wau and visited all the counties, we took a plane again to Juba after we were denied entry by the Lakes State Governor General Matur Chuot Dhol for almost unknown reasons projected by governor of Warrap State. Though our team leader Hon. Bol Makueng was from the same state like the governor, Bol told us to proceed to Juba and rearrange our visit to the state again.

After arrival in Juba the arrangement this time was done through the office of deputy government Paul Mabor who warmly welcome us thereafter from Rumbek airstrip and organized for our accommodations and inspections to various counties in Lakes State. The governor seemed uncooperative and hostile to his deputy for our visit. One evening a thanksgiving dinner was organized in the house of the governor on behalf of the newly nominated state assembly speaker, in which we were also invited.

During his speech which was conducted in Dinka he stated clearly that some MPs from his state supported Dr. Riek Machar’s move to depose President Salva Kiir from power which he objected vigorously.

General Matur warned the suspected MPs not to support a killer of Dinka in reference to Dr. Machar. He reminded the MPs of 1991 splits within the SPLM/A, where Riek had killed the Dinka. I told my colleague Hon. Stephen Par that war is imminent and let us prepare for the worst. The impressions we had seen in all the three Dinka dominated states of Lakes, Northern Bahr Gazal and Warrap was terribly discouraging and likely to cause war and further suffering to the people of South Sudan as it has now happened.

When I returned to Malakal I found myself in loggerhead with the state governor Simon Kun Puoch who also accused me of supporting Dr. Riek Machar against President Salva Kiir’s leadership where he unceremoniously removed me from his cabinet.

On the 9th December 2013, Dr. Riek Machar and his family came to Malakal en route to Odier, Langichuk County to attend the funeral of his mother in law in which I went to the Malakal Airport to convey my condolence to him and his family. Before their arrival to Malakal, one senior security personnel close to the governor made a phone call to me in the evening hours and warned me not to meet Dr. Riek Machar tomorrow at the airport. The same message was also conveyed to all senior government officials and ministers not to receive Dr. Riek at all.

Individually, I decided to go to the airport with my two bodyguards and my former office manager to meet the former vice president as I saw there was no reason why I should not convey my condolence to him and his dear wife Nyaluak Nyuon. At the airport, the turn out was almost zero. None of the senior state government officials including his in-laws did not turn up. We only met some security officials who were sent specifically to the airport by governor Simon to inspect who defied his orders and his brother in-law, Gatnyuon who accompanied them to Odier.

The security personnel found that I was the only one at the airport and that proved his accusations which he had already labelled against me earlier. On my returned back to the house, I was instructed to move out from the government house which I was entitled since than to evacuate in less than two weeks from my dismissal and hand over the car to the security officials who came to my house which I did.

The governor’s decision was contrary to the normal way of handling post constitutional holders where they are supposed to retains their cars and houses for three months before post service benefits is paid to them. All my entitlements including salary of November were denied to me. Because I did not possess a house in Malakal, I decided to spent some few days at South Sudan Hotel before traveling to my residence in Juba.

The same scenario had also happened in June 2013, where the governor of Upper Nile Simon Kun Puoch launched an official visit to Juba to meet the President. In his mission to Juba to pay his condolence for the death of Salva Kiir’s mother in-law who passed away during that month, the governor selected some ministers and one adviser to accompany him to Juba. I happened to be one of those accompanied the governor. The entire delegation comprised of one adviser and four ministers.

In our meeting with the president at his official resident, it took us over 3 hours where we discussed variety of issues. Some of the ministers and the governor told the president point blank to dismiss Dr. Riek Machar from the vice president’s position because he seemed to be running a parallel faction within the SPLM led government setup. In total, four of us including the governor, two ministers and the adviser were all from Nuer.

The governor and one of his close ally and a long serving minister under him were agitating the president to dismiss the vice president from his position by citing that he had lost popular supports among the Nuer in general. Therefore, his dismissal would not affect the progress of his government. The adviser had some reservations and tried to use reconciliatory tune in order for president to continue working with his vice president harmoniously.

When it came to my turn, I spoke at length where I narrated to the president the previous splits within the South Sudanese movements right from 1983 between SPLM/A and Anya-Nya II Movement which resulted to the lost of thousands of South Sudanese people and destructions of property particularly in Gajaak Nuer areas from 1984 – 1987.

I also reminded him of 1991, SPLM/A internal splits, in which it took the movement 11 years to reunite its ranks and massive lost of both humans and property. I again reminded him about the time he attempted to challenge Dr. John Garang in Yei and Rumbek in November 2004, where Dr. Riek managed to reconcile them successfully.

I told him that Simon Kun and I, were in attendance of that conference in Rumbek in which the issues that were about to separate you with Dr. John Garang were obvious the same differences that made Dr. Riek Machar and Dr. Lam Akol disagreed with Dr. John and you. I strongly appealed to him to consider continuous working with Dr. Riek Machar for the sake of peace and harmony among our diverse communities.

HOW KIIR PREPARES FOR A COUP
Being a good listener, President Salva Kiir took enough time to listen to all our views without any interceptions.
In his response to our opinions, he told us that he was of the opinion to retain Dr. Riek Machar but he felt that Dr. Riek was threatening him with Nuer which he felt very disturbed about it. He asked a question to us that; if I dismiss Riek from the vice president position, what would Nuer do to me or to the South Sudan government for that matter?

He repeated that question more than one time. Eventually, he promised that he was going to see to it if he would retain him or not in the next government reshuffle. Indeed, on 23rd July 2013, one month later, President Salva Kiir apparently dismissed the entire cabinets including the vice president Dr. Riek Machar and replaced him with James Wani Igga.

The removal of Dr. Riek Machar and the entire cabinet happened while I was on official duty in Juba in which I paid a visit to Dr. Riek in the morning of the following day at his official residence at Hai Amarat. From there I found some Nuer MPs and elders who came to consult the former vice president.

Some of us were not pleased at all with president’s decision to unceremoniously remove the vice president who was also his running mate during the general elections of April 2010. According to Dr. Riek, he advised all of us not to be emotional because he always believed that the position of vice president is a public domain in which his removal has no any grudges with the president.

He went as far as congratulating Cde Wani Igga for assuming the position of the vice president. He also repeated the same statement at Sunday church service to over two thousands Nuer congregation at Presbyterian Church of South Sudan at Nyakuron West. Indeed, president Salva Kiir question of what could Nuer do if he removed Dr. Riek Machar was correct.

Basically, the Nuer did not do anything for over four months until the president provoked the situation by ordering his militias “Dutkubeny” to massacre thousands of unarmed Nuer civilians in Juba. I believe now that if the president knew that things were going to turn ugly the way they are, he would have not asked that question from the first place or acted in such irrational way where the ongoing war is being waged by his supporters jointly with UPDF and Sudanese oppositions allies of JEM, SPLA-N and SLA against the SPLM/A Resistant Movement.

I had also posed the same question later that why Governor Simon Kun wanted us to accompany him to express his condolence for the death of president Salva Kiir’s mother in-law and not to allow anyone to pay the same respect to Dr. Riek Machar for the death of his mother in-law, while death is the same?

The so-called coup attempt which was highlighted all over the world by the President Kiir and his associates in Juba following the aftermath of fighting at Tiger Headquarters and subsequent massacres of unarmed Nuer civilians in Nuer and other towns in the South was just a ploy or cover up from the actual motives.

There was no coup attempt in the first place to warrant the arrest of SPLM leaders nor massacring of over 20,000 unarmed Nuer civilians as it had happened and defended by the government in Juba in the name of coup de’tat. To my understanding, IGAD and its Troika allies are just beating the bushes without getting closer to the reality.

Without addressing the root causes of this conflict earnestly , an amicable solution would hardly be realized in foreseeable future. President Salva Kiir and his current Chief of General Staff General Paul Malong Awan are the main culprits in this conflict. The IGAD formula of resolving the current conflict under Salva Kiir leadership is truly an insult to all those who died in vain in both sides of this civil war in South Sudan.

KIIR MUST RELINQUISH POWER
President Salva Kiir must by all means possible relinquish power in order for the people of South Sudan communities to regain their lost trust and confident. Anything short than this it will not be possible to attain peace in the country. IGAD has already failed with their current mediating efforts if they continued using the same outdated mechanism of maintaining Salva Kiir as president of South Sudan where at the same time trying to copy what had occurred in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Somalia where dictators were imposed against the wills of their people.

One thing the IGAD do not understand for sure, South Sudan geo-political situation and tribal complexities are completely different from these countries they wanted to compare with South Sudan. It took Anya-Nya II over 5 years to reconcile their differences with SPLA and 11 good years for Dr. Riek Machar to reconcile his differences with John Garang. All the past reconciliation efforts done in favour of SPLM/A under John Garang was because of South Sudan liberation.

Now anybody who wishes to imitate what Khartoum was doing is deadly wrong and will be resisted up to the end. The so-called Dinka elders should speak among themselves seriously and advise their son Salva Kiir to step aside in order for people of South Sudan to unite themselves.

Otherwise it will be hard for any living Nuer or even their ghost ones to accept any deal under Salva Kiir leadership. Put this in mind and take it seriously instead of preaching “Gospel of Nonsense” with your recent statements being circulated in social media in the name of Jieng Community Elders.

    This story is simple and straightforward. It should be believed by everybody in Washington, London, Oslo and other capitals. The peace talks in Addis Ababa are a real charade and will not result in peace returning to Sudan. Here I want to address the leaders of USA, Britain and Norway directly.

    The Dinka in South Sudan who are being groomed to behave as a “majority” ethnie to stabilize South Sudan, leading to nation building, do not have any of the stabilizing and the civilizing features of the English in the UK, the Wasp (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) in the USA etc, in South Sudan. In fact they are the key destabilizing group in the country. Thus, those doctrinaire officials in the White House, White Hall and Oslo, who are bent on supporting Dinka-Kiir based government solely on this premise are plainly wrong. We therefore recommend the following:

    Recall Museveni from South Sudan,
    Encourage the rebel to have a robust post-conflict program; and
    Arm the rebellion to oust Kiir from power quickly without undue delay, lost of further lives and support its program.

    Only through this will peace ever return to our country. Otherwise, we are chasing the wind.

    Furthermore, the policy of regional solutions to regional conflicts has been shown not to work, even in Europe! The European dithered in the recent Balkan conflict and it was through the Americans that the Serbs were subdued and Kosovo and components of Yugoslavia gained there freedom. Please we want more of that in South Sudan. IGAD is a Club of ethnic Dictators bereft of any moral authority to resolve the South Sudanese ethic-based issue. Please be reasonable, intuitive and consistent in this regard, you our friends from the West.

    Ex Minister, Daniel Jok,
    “The aftermath of fighting at Tiger Headquarters” Why did the fighting happened? Who actually fired the first bullet? Was it Kiir who killed Nuer Tiger officers or was it Nuer officer who started shooting at their Dinka comrades? What does coup de etate means to you? Is it not a group of soldiers taking over military headquarters and shutting down government offices contrary to orders from their high command? Are you saying the fighting at Tiger Headquarter was about jobs entitlements of soldiers and got nothing to do with power struggles between Kiir and Machar?
    Jok, don’t you see even a little mistake; leave alone, any crime from your side? Tiger mutiny is a Nuer fault, where on earth do soldiers have the right to refuse orders? Are they not oblige to commit suicide if order to? Huge on-going retaliatory killing of Dinka, which is not less evil than Nuer killings, is a Nuer fault and they should face it. Mistake or crime is not solve by doing the same thing ….For RSS to move forward, two communities of Dinka and Nuer must hold their leaders responsible for massive Human Rights violation….Denial of every one’s part , or prolonging the war is not a solution. We need to move to “Damage Control status, not damage exacerbation” and, critically think about what happened, how it happened, why did it happen and what lessons can be learnt from it.

    • Bol,

      Sometimes you know what are talking about but other times you talk like you forgot your brain in the meat company you are working for. Salva has been planning Nuer massacre since 2005 and he achieved the plan he has been working on since then in December 15, 2013. If Kiir did not plan for Nuer massacre, then why he invited foreign military in South Sudan in June 2013? Why Kiir recruit only Dinka Bar El Ghazel only particularly Warrap and Northern Bar El Gazal? Why Kiir ordered the disarmament of Nuer after he graduated his militia? Are all these not plan for Nuer massacred that was achieved in December? The Tiger battalions have been there since 2005 and why they did not fight until December 15, 2013?

      • Bol says:

        BR,
        Working in a Meat Factory is an honourable job that should not make me less qualified to debate national issues, if I can contribute somehow in such debate. Remember, half of the truth, may lay with a common, uneducated factory worker. Our great scientists and the Noble laureates should not alienate factory workers if their intention is the good of our country. My point was and remains; how did president Kiir persuaded or ordered Nuer officers to shoot and kill their Dinka comrades as a part of gran plan of Nuer massacre? ……Did Nuer soldiers mutinied, or refused an order from their High Command to be disarmed? ……..This is the “Root Cause” of December 15/2013 disaster in my factory worker’s opinion….. The world renowned thinkers like yourself may disagree, with supporting evidences and the public be the judge……..Sorry, my great thinker, but these other topic you came up with, are irrelevant….. Such as bringing in foreign troops, (sovereign decision made by the government of the day and can be alter by the next government)…..The lengthy periods these renegade army officers being working for in the same location …… (No assignment is for life)…. My dear, dismissing one side of the story without examining it, is not helpful in any form or shape. Be adamant as you are in your absurdities of blaming and denial….Work hard in military solution….20 plus years down the road….No victory ….No Peace.
        Happy Office Work and Merry New Year

        • GatCharwearbol says:

          Bol,

          Who told you the Nuer started the shooting first? Where is your evidence? Please produce your evidence? Any breathing soul can accuse anybody? Without you giving us the evidence, it is just another lie like the Coup Narrative. Just because Salva Kiir says that it is Nuer soldiers who refused order does not make it truth? I’m gusssing it is the lies your folks are feeding you in Juba of what had happened. There is no way you will conceal your idol criminality. He is criminal and responsible for all the mess taking place in South Sudan, period. Until you provide us with solid evidence that it is Nuer who started the war, you are no different from Salva Kiir, Makuei, Marial Benjamin — these are the renowed liars of our time. Get busy my friend. Back up your claim with evidences.

          Even if your lie would have to truth, what bring in the killing of innocent civilians? The killing of un-armed Nuer civilians including children, elderly, blind, sick, and women is what cause this war. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

        • Bol,

          Let me answer your question why the Nuer in military did not comply with the law that require them to be disarmed. After the war had broken out in the presidential guards, the following day a huge well- equipped military with tanks surrounded Dr. Machar’s house and demanded Riek’s body guards lay down their guns so Riek guards refused to be disarmed.

          However, James Hoth came to Riek’s house and persuade Riek body guards to lay down their guns “nothing will happen to you”, James Hoth said. As the guards laid their guns down and their guns had taken away, the 53 body guards were shot dead in the present of James Hoth. None of the guards did not escape death. You see the evil plan of Dinka’s dictator through Nuer soul sell out.

          Mr. Bol, if the presidential guards would not have reamed themselves after seeing their Dinka’ counterpart being reamed, then they would have been dead like Riek body guards. Could you tell me what prompt the Dinka’s dictator to disarm only Nuer in the government and reamed the Dinka not only in the presidential guards, but also all the Dinka in Juba including civilian? Dinka are still supporting this visionless, power hungry, and drunkard leader after killing over 20,000 civilians through his made up corp. You are brainless people, good only for hell and headcounts. Just wait we are working it no matter how long it will take Kiir must relinquish the power.

    • Malek auger says:

      Brother Bol, do not waste your time with ex- hon minister Daniel Wour, I am absolutely convinced that neither Nuer diaspora nor with the government will say the truth, they are blindly accusing Dinka of massacre their brothers while forgetting the fact that they are the one initiated the fight by killing their own colleagues from Dinka.
      Honorable minister can you tell us exactly how did you managed to escape the Dinka massacre, so we can know that you were in trouble.
      Let’s be logic and talk sense, stop laying to yourself, and the truth you should know is that this war is your own war,you started and you should then stopped.
      I never know in my life that the whole tribe can just blindly support someone because he want to be president and the rest should loose their lives and job because if him, I learned just now Nuer brothers are neither intellectual nor educated,because if they are they can not be fooled by Reik three times.

  3. Terketh says:

    Mr. Daniel Wuor Joak, your article is half, half you talk like nationalist, but you are mostly bend to tribalism. Dr. Riek is not a really doctor if he then he should not killed a single south Sudanese citizen during this time, so what he did now is really intention to destroy south Sudanese citizens for only looking for positions as it happening during in on going peace talks in Addis creation of 27 ministries is totally people are running after positions and no someone care about the current suffering of south Sudanese citizens. so we count this event of 2013 to Riek as an intention and of 1991 as pardon by our late leader Garang as a mistake and mistake comes at once and if repeated then it is intention as it happened in Dec 15,2013. preaching in the name of Dinka tribe to gain some benefits locally ,regionally or internationally will not help in this crisis and put in your mind you Nuer no any country in the world can be run by one tribe as you are claiming and it appeared now in the way you structured your movement. you have to advise yourselves first before you take a decision and it is only a big mistake from most of you Nuer people only a few among you who are wise like Simon Kun and some few others, but majority among you do not think and ask first if he found any one of Nuer tribe in quarrel or fight he/she decide to go on with fight (Wuaniseen) in Nuer language which is not good in the world of today so change yourselves the world is moving not like the world of early centuries.

    • Terketh

      Please stop blaming Nuer blindly wild animals event a cow think much better than you are. You think Dinka own this country so they can do whatever they want to do to anyone in the country they massacred Balanda and Shilluk in 2010. What are you are appreciating Kun Pouch for? Is it because he helped Kiir killed his won Nuer right? If you think Kun Pouch is good man to you Dinka, then why burned his hometown Nasir to ground when your Dinka and Nuer-soul sell out captured it? Salva and his double blind Dinka’s supporters keep threatening everyone and every tribe in the country so you can promote the “Born TO Rule” law, right?

      My cousin, the “Born to Rule” policy will never be passed in this country as long as Nuer are part of South Sudan and the dictatorship vision will never be allowed either as long as Nuer are part of this country. Your Dinka’s dictator, power hungry, and hopeless leader created the chaos, yet you still blame the South Sudan problem on Nuer. You are hopeless tribe who never want to discuss matter politically. You always depend on military power as a way to protect your weak and dictator Dinka’s president against his political opponents. Is this the only way you will be running the country for the next 50 years?

      Salva has been planning Nuer massacre since 2005 and he achieved the plan he has been working on since then on December 15, 2013. I truly appreciate that my Nuer people responded the dictator act in Juba accordingly because we knew very well that no one would hold Kiir accountable for his crimes. If Kiir did not plan for Nuer massacre, then why he invited foreign military in South Sudan in June 2013? Why Kiir recruit only Dinka Bar El Gazal particularly, Warrap and Northern Bar El Gazal? Why Kiir ordered the disarmament of Nuer after he graduated his militia? Are all these not plan for Nuer massacred that was achieved in December, 2013? Bear in mind that this country is belong to all South Sudanese and every South Sudanese has right to contest for anyone position they have interest in.

  4. Choromke Jas,

    Thanks, you said it all. I hope the western nations particularly the Obama administration which supports Kiir’s corrupt and genocidal government firmly would listen to your advice if they really want South Sudan to have peace. The Americans government need to stop supporting kiir’s government financially and must urge Uganda to withdraw it military from South Sudan. However, there are some individuals within Obama’s administration including Obama himself who do not want South Sudan to have peace at all. If these individuals like John Kerry stick with Kiir because of interest, then that interest could be fulfill by any leader who will take the country leadership too.

  5. Malek auger says:

    We are really sorry for those innocents citizen who killed due to the stupidity of those who think they can rule our nation by force forgetting that they never contributed to our freedom except destruction since the beginning up to the end of our revolution. What called Reil will never rule us , and I am sure his dates are marked,the new year will never finished without him being rested in no peace. And for you Mr, Wour it’s shameful that you are talking on those who the government killed while leaved out your mastered killing of innocents Dinkas,Shilluk , Nuer and the whole South Sudan by your ignorant leader who is always killing all the time ,looking to be president, but I will assure you brother neither your Reik nor your G10.
    Next year if you don’t accept peace it will be last year for you and your ignorant leader.

  6. Malek auger says:

    Bantu do not be that foolish brother,who’s animals Dinka’s or Nuers ,read your own writing,Obama is supporting Nuer and that’s why Nuers are getting coverage with their lies, but soon they will know the truth.
    Wondering what kind of human being are you,none of you can think right at all,damn,feel sorry for you, may almighty GOD re created you so you can be at least human.

  7. Dut Paul says:

    This story is mere fabrication of what exactly happened in Juba last December. If it wasn’t a coup, what was it then? Call it disagreement, misunderstanding, cook-up or so forth, but the entire world knows that it was a coup. Had it been successful, Riak and people like you wouldn’t have sit-back and say, it wasn’t a coup. Deny it but you can never deny the fact that Riak Machar has always been planning to overthrow the legitimate and democratic government of South Sudan and replace it with chaos. You mentioned in your article that unarmed Nuer civilians were massacred in Juba, Riak is accountable not only because he armed Nuer youth without proper training to fight for him but also for using them as human shield after he failed to capture the main barrack. You said that your trip to Northern Bhar el gazzel and Lake states was for education purposes. That’s not true, it was a spying mission and that’s why you weren’t welcomed. Remember, Riak was planning quietly and the government was watching him. Cheers.
