To Dr. Machar: Adopt Nuer egalitarianism as your manifesto & watch your popularity skyrocket!

By: MARGARET AKULIA, CANADA, MAY/15/2015, SSN;

To Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon, please espouse Nuer egalitarianism as your official manifesto for the new South Sudan and watch your popularity skyrocket locally and globally! Continue to be a champion for actual Democracy and you will automatically become the People’s hero.

That means allying with the people of South Sudan who must largely comprise of political parties, civil society and faith-based leaders in “the negotiation of a transitional government of national unity, in order to ensure broad ownership of the agreed outcomes” and gaining their consensus on the way forward for South Sudan in relation to “the permanent constitution, and any other items that concern the political future of the country and reconciliation of South Sudanese communities”, as outlined in the agreement you signed in Addis Ababa on May 9, 2014.

Your appeal for calm after Salvatore Kiir Mayardit dishonored your 2010 “gentlemen agreement” and your refusal to dignify his self-aggrandizing, reckless and uncalled for cock-a-doodle-doo “I am the president of South Sudan, and I must always remain in that position as the president. The leader of that country,” with a response during the somber occasion of signing the agreement to halt the carnage in South Sudan in Addis Ababa on May 9, 2014 distinguished you as the more superior statesman!

Even though you would have offered a lucid response to Salvatore Kiir Mayardit’s attempt to “ruffle your feathers” in spite of the fact that you have effectively “clipped his wings” by forcing him as an incumbent president to negotiate with you.

Also, your self-discipline to stay silent speaks volumes about your ability to resist the temptation to be jerked into a foolish power struggle at the expense of the people of South Sudan!

You did extremely well by refusing to dignify Salvatore Kiir Mayardit’s deflated and sacrilegious “cock crowing” about being the president of the country he has desecrated with a response because as a higher-class statesman, you understood and discerned that it was a glum occasion resulting from death and destruction.

Consequently, the haughtiness Salvatore Kiir Mayardit exhibited would be out of place. That was why you earned a warm welcome in Ethiopia instead.

Dr. Machar Was Not Threatened In Addis Ababa, He Was Warmly Welcomed!

You remain tight-lipped about what transpired in Ethiopia behind “closed doors” in relation to allegedly being “blackmailed” by Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn into signing the agreement to halt the bloodbath in South Sudan as a wise statesman ought to because you understood that any “persuasion” by the Prime Minister was intended for the good of the people of South Sudan.

However, Salvatore Kiir Mayardit flippantly “broadcast” it on “hilltops” and continued to lay bare the lack of discipline that caused South Sudan to plummet into a lawless country in the first place!

You did well not to “blubber” and allege duress as Salvatore Kiir Mayardit has done because Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn’s “persuasion” was not duress but a duty to ensure that the suffering masses of South Sudan can stop being executed in cold blood!

We signed peace deal under duress, Kiir claims

http://www.southsudannation.com/we-signed-peace-deal-under-duress-kiir-claims/

The Proverb “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18)” is playing itself outright before the eyes of the world and Salvatore Kiir Mayardit only has himself to blame for the looming humiliating tumble that will result from his ill advised “cock crowing” in Ethiopia and “loose talk” before an entire world that is watching the two of you very closely.

Take your caliber to an unparalleled level by trumpeting an interim government of the people, by the people, for the people which bears close resemblance to your Nuer egalitarianism after all and your popularity will skyrocket locally and globally!

Salvatore Kiir Mayardit started off the agreement to halt the massacre in South Sudan in bad faith but you don’t have to follow in his footsteps.

His are the murmurings of an undiscerning wannabe “king” who wants to impose a warped “kingdom” called South Sudan onto “subjects” who actually despise him now because of the way he morphed into a tyrant instead of remaining a “freedom fighter”!

It is obvious that Salvatore Kiir Mayardit and his cronies are completely ignorant about the fact that his so-called “democratic election” was actually a plebiscite and not a Presidential Election!

A simple explanation by an incorruptible and intelligent lawyer with the aptitude to understand that the people of South Sudan can actually “dethrone” Salvatore Kiir Mayardit from his self-styled “kingship” legally would have wiped off the smirk preceding the cock-a-doodle-doo “I am the president of South Sudan, and I must always remain in that position as the president. The leader of that country” from his face!

However, why bother continuing to sound like a “broken record” to try and explain this high-level legal detail to “deaf” ears anyway when the People now have an immediate opportunity to turn a new leaf and forge forward with an actual Democracy?

Why bother prolonging the suffering of South Sudanese by “dragging” Salvatore Kiir Mayardit through the dysfunctional judiciary and “kangaroo courts” he has instituted in South Sudan to try to “unseat him” legally when the people can now move forward without the brutality he and his cronies have meted on them for almost a decade?

Suffice it to say that despite assuming power without the correct process and mandate from the people of South Sudan, Salvatore Kiir Mayardit has grossly let down the People and abrogated his implicit duty to foster the country and prevent every South Sudanese from being harmed.

Consequently he and his supporters need to stop the absurdity of enunciating that he should serve his full presidential term because there was no such term!

The people of South Sudan have had enough mortification to last a life time. It is time for them to heal from their unfathomable wounds and recover from being a laughing-stock after enduring the humiliating high jinks of a so-called President who is clueless about the importance and workings of the United Nations system.

The only reason Salvatore Kiir Mayardit continued as President of South Sudan is the tyranny that has precipitated the mass murder of South Sudanese from your Nuer tribe and his Dinka tribe but there is now an opportunity for new beginnings which you as a superior statesman should safeguard by allying with the political parties, civil society and faith-based leaders and obtaining their consensus about what the transitional government of national unity ought to be.

Salvatore Kiir Mayardit has proved that he is incapable of redeeming himself, which puts the onus on you, Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon, as a more sophisticated statesman in the harmful game of “Russian Roulette” that has severely injured the people of South Sudan and ravaged the country beyond recognition to work with the people of South Sudan in championing their aspirations for an interim government.

Such a government needs to be sanctioned by the People without intimidation.

The interim government is temporary, interventional and preparatory in nature but critical for the survival of the South Sudan you yourself risked your life for.

It will be a critical bridge between the bloodbath in which you and your cronies participated and a Democratic South Sudan that is the envy of all African countries.

It will usher in much needed healing and pave the way for resolving the six key challenges that you highlighted during the meeting you had with members of the South Sudan politburo on March 5, 2013, which included but were not limited to the rampant corruption, tribalism, economic problems, insecurity, poor international relations and the loss of vision and direction by the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement that led to Salvatore Kiir Mayardit’s decision to eject you from the vice presidency of South Sudan after you attempted to offer him “constructive criticism”.

The bloodletting that has brought South Sudan to this point of utter despair has devastated individuals, communities and the country at large but the extreme injury cannot be reversed.

However, the people can try to heal only if peace is reinstated.

You can bring about that peace by continuing your call to action and the “fundamental change” that is also supported by your brother from Equatoria, Lieutenant General Ladu Gore while supporting the People’s aspirations to constitute an interim government.

Make your fight for Democracy about restitution for the devastated people of South Sudan, not you or Salvatore Kiir Mayardit and watch how high the global community exalts you.

You have already ushered in South Sudan’s much needed “truth and reconciliation” by taking full responsibility for your role in the Bor massacre of 1991 and I am confident that you will make another unprecedented “U Turn” by taking full responsibility for your role in the current bloodbath while morphing into the People’s fervent protector and defender!

Find a way to reach out to members of the White Army and the other Nuer people who are still out to avenge the senseless murder of Nuer people. Impress upon them that two wrongs don’t make a right and revenge will never bring back their loved ones but the restitution the interim government could also be tasked with might aid in the healing.

Ally with the United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

Protect the people of South Sudan from Salvatore Kiir Mayardit and his cronies because unlike Salvatore Kiir Mayardit, you are capable of being remorseful for your actions and making a total “U Turn”.

Above all, listen to the wise counsel of the people of South Sudan in their aspirations for an interim government.

Be open to instruction, “constructive criticism” and correction starting with the instruction and appeal by your sisters at the South Sudan Women Cry for Peace.

    Is there anything called Nuer egalitarianism? Where and when did Nuer obtain? Are you talking of the Nuer we know or another Nuer somewhere else?

    We know quite so well the reason for the current war in South Sudan. Riek also always mixes up his on interests and the interests of others that hide in his armpit.

    His 1991 gave nothing to him and nothing to Nuer. It got him a job in Khartoum lower than what he was given in the South. He brought no single development project in the Nuerland even after he gave away the Dinka oil in Bentiu and higlig and Paloch. Sad enough that is almost entirely Dinka oil, not Nuer’s.

    His 2013-2014 war is an oil war. We have all evidences and proofs of the origin of conflict. One day, one time after all this mess, we are going to release them to the public.

    Dinka have held themselves after the Juba incidence. Youths have not been mobilized. Kiir has never address any single rally since the beginning of conflict.

    The Dinkas from the 4 states of Barh el Ghazal have left six counties of Nuer in Unity State to stay and battle the army only without the civilians fighters joining them.

    If Nuer are able together 25000 youths marching, then even us can afford a million youths.

    Thanks to Kiir’s presidency, the Dinka have stayed intact. The mujahideen and Janjaweed have attacked and slaughtered our people in Bentiu. Bentiu is on this side of the Nile.

    I commend the Dinka youths for being so calm. It is a rebel war against the Government still. It is South Sudan army fighting the Rebels. There is nothing egalitarian about Nuer rebels in all their skirmishes.

    The next President of South Sudan after Kiir Mayardit is an Equatorian. If it has to be a Nuer that must rule South Sudan, then we must be free to choose among all the Nuers any leader we want. I know the Nuers that can make it, like Dr. Monytuil, Riek Gai, Marial Benjamin, Hoth Mai, Simon Kun etc.

    • malclumx says:

      Mr.majongdit you are only mentioning those Nuer who are loyalist to dinka and those who are very passive, they don’t say anything opposite they all MR yesssssss,they are the one the you are mentioning, but I assure you the marginalize people of south sudan Love Dr Riak and they are seeing him as a Savior of the nation, from Dinka colony behavior including me. what dinka are doing it’s a win lose behavior (an accepted).

    • Lavina Lual says:

      Ms Margaret.

      You have said it all now try to interview also people like Kiir himself and see the difference because him/Kiir, Dr Riek, Alfred Lado and others.

      Do not be surprise that you may find that kiir does not know how to talk and may called some one to prepare for him notes in advance

      Good luck lady…I ma very impressed with your interviews….

    • The answer to such premature Commend would be “you are cowards, if you are men in your own rights, just join the field and let us see each other there “. Dinkas are like cooked grains you can chew with two jaws! You betrayed South Sudan, and that alone show you are not men of war but cowardice, corrupt and useless people who live like you will take the earthly wealth to heaven. You are losers! !!

  2. Dengin Aw says:

    do you think and dream akulia that your man called Quake Dr Riak will lead this country even for one hour. show us his CV for what thing he did to the people of South Sudan. he does not speak good English as professional nor Arabic alway laughing for no reason. he never write any small one page paper to show his qualification–his documents are fake. period!!!!

    • Elijah Samuel says:

      Dengin,
      If the Primitive Kiir can be a President then why not a PhD holder? Riek did nothing against South Sudan, He kicked Dinka arrses and they have to run and get Ugandans, Egyptians etc to help them. Dinka is not South Sudan.

  3. Alier Gai says:

    Akulia
    Nothing is coming to macher’s rescue. He is done many times and for all. His next battle is the international criminal court where he will fight for his own life to have 100 years of life sentence in perison than immediate death. Your hard work is nothing of importance to his wrong deeds and the gross sins he committed. Therefore, you stay away from the guy and all the menaces around him. Not only him to be handcapped but many will follow as well. He might be lucky this time to bring democracy and self-determination (something unfit in south sudan) to icc, which his counterpart charles tayoler failed terribly to deliver. And hope that he repents there so that his slave soul to ngundeng has second chance for the eternality. That is what you and I should pray to champion now, or otherwise we are going to loss him physically and spiritually, which is bad. You be careful now because the undercover of net has been launched to track down the hateful languages on media, and internet is # one target. Anyone caught doing that will visit icc. It was agreed as a result of bentiu’s foul mouths detected. Many are not aware, and it doesn’t matter where you live because big fellows are involved to save lives from the net preditors.

    • Lavina Lual says:

      What all south sudanese know-63 communities excluding jieng extremist is that Kiir is the first to face the ICC follow by Dr Riek (in case) because a disease is always treated after thorough and proven diagnosis of its root cause.

      • Alier Gai says:

        Your champion is not working for 63 tribes but for himself and nuers only. The icc will investigate exculsively to find out who is the pioneer of choas before many of them are thrown into the house of guilt—the kangoro court. Riek will be the first example before the rest. So don’t look around for anything else than giving him his long due judgment of the crimes he has committed.

        • Lavina Lual says:

          The truth is we have done more harm than good to others (63 communities) and we keep on opening our huge lengthy mouthes that we have liberated others, the liberation that ends up been used for oppresing other minorities after the CPA.

          Proofs are always sang over this website in the name of Nuer massacre, Wau killings, Chuhudum killing, wild land grabbing, yei and yambio killings, etc.

          Mind you not all of us are wild mad animals who do not understand or see nor belive in things occuring in our midts. And if we are all among the deaf animals who like oppresing others then it is the story of animals firm-other animals understands meaning they are better behaved than others wilder ones

      • Beek says:

        Lual,There is nothing you can do this world without mentioned JIENG name,you need help/psychiatrist.Do it very quick before its too late.

      • Beek says:

        Do you have nothing to do in this world? Everything you write is only Jieng Jieng. What Dinka got and what i have gain from South or from Kiir.Don’t spoil Jieng for no reason.Dinka try very hard in order to survive and you have to do the same instead of government FUNDS.The world community now know how much money Riek Machar plus 11 ex- Detainees have stolen.People of NUER should be ashamed of themselves.International,stealing from government is very danger.

        Riek will never ever become President never.

        • Lavina Lual says:

          Actually no one wants to see our uggly faces arround anymore specially in Juba town after we farbriacted the coup-de-tat story something that did not happened. This can be seen and read right from the faces of locals and the languages they speak thanks to God some of us speak several ethnic languages.

          If you had better things to do than lying arround people could read truth and facts meaning you dont’ need to put much effort to appease people.

  4. Chul Mi Bor says:

    Well written sister Margret! Kiir is a pariah in our nation. He has failed our nation and sold it to Uganda and Darfurian rebels. Could you imagine that all public servants including his SPLA soldiers have not been paid since February! Where did the money go? Kiir has terribly failed and should plan for a safe exit from the presidency. South Sudanese are not lucky because they “got out from frying fire and into fire.”

  5. Thon Giei says:

    Majongdit:
    You have mentioned the truth. Nuers mobilized themselves under Riek Machar for a final war against the Dinkas. Only they devastated the Dinkas of Bailiet and Pigi and Panriang.
    Yes, Riek ambitions are limitless and often used ignorant and educated Nuers alike to obtain his ends.
    I tell you, even without the involvement of the youth of 4 states of Dinka in Bahr El-Gazal, yet the less publicized Dinkas in Unity and Upper Nile managed to capture the headquarters of Riek in Nasir. if not the ceasefire , SPLA and the allied civilians fighters by now would have been in Akoba.
    Imagine the situation of the youth of Bahr El-Gazal to join the war and if if if president kiir had to use the tribal mobilization of Riek Machar?
    The net tribal warriors need to understand that the South Sudanese have grown up and they need peace for all.
    No integration of rebell forces into the country army. An amnesty needs declartion so that the rebells go to their homes and live as civilians.
    Thanks
    Thon

  6. Lavina Lual says:

    That is very true and will be much workable under federal Govt (one army but thorughly mixed)

    please tell us the truth, salva is one who mobilize dinka
