Tribal Domination & Dinkanization in the making in South Sudan

From: Nhial Ruach , South Sudan, NOV/23/2015, SSN;

While Salva Kiir and his Dinka Council of Evil are in the process of destroying South Sudan in order to establish their Dinkanization policy, other tribes are marching along with them, helping Kiir and Jieng Council of Elders (Evil) to achieve this objective.

Thus, many questions come to mind, such as, are the rest of the South Sudanese becoming blinded by greed for personal gains or are they just too afraid to stand up against the ongoing implementation of the Dinka domination?

Where in the world that you are helping an individual or a tribe to establish a kingdom over you without resisting it?

These could only happen when one does not know what is happening or when one is being defeated and forced to surrender.

South Sudanese must not allow Salva Kiir and his Dinka of Evil to employ strategies used by many colonial masters to dominate others in the country shared by all.

If domination is acceptable and it is good, why nations all over the world have fought against colonization to liberate themselves from their colonial masters?

Similarly, if the domination is good, why South Sudanese have fought against Khartoum regime if the domination and marginalization are acceptable systems?

Are Dinka asking for South Sudan to disintegrate into small nations along tribal lines, or what is that they are trying to do?

Do Dinkas think that they will continue to rule this nation for life under such domination?

The system of domination has been practiced by many leaders and tribes all over Africa, and the in Middle East but they all have failed.

It was employed in old Sudan by Mahadi but eventually collapsed, it was employed by Muomar Gaddafi in Libya, yet it came to vanish and was accompanied by terrible consequences.

It was employed in Iraq by Saddam Hussein but failed terribly. It was also employed in Ethiopia but failed. (Just to mention a few).

So, what make our brothers and sisters from Dinka to think that they will rule the country with an Iron Fist and their Kingdom in the making will last forever?

Many people may rush to conclusion that Salva Kiir created 28 states in South Sudan as to violate the newly signed peace agreement; however, Salva Kiir and his Dinka Council of Evil have been actively designing many ways to expand and to maintain Dinka domination in South Sudan by all means.

One of the mean is to create more states in favor of Dinka communities in order to maintain the Dinka domination that is supposed to last forever.

As one can see from what they have done, among the 28 States they created, 13 out of the 28 States are allocated to Dinkas, and only other fifteen are distributed among other 63 tribes.

In the 13 States they have allocated to Dinkas, they have annexed lands from every tribe in South Sudan. They have annexed land rich of oil from Eastern Nuer (Jikaany Nuer) and given it to Dinka in Upper Nile.

They also annexed land rich of oil from Western Nuer and given it to Dinka in Bar el Gazel, (Similar strategies that were employed by the Sudan government when it annexed oil rich areas to the North).

Also, they have annexed lands from Central Nuer and given it to Dinkas. Again they have annexed land from Shilluk, and given it to Dinkas.

They also annexed land from non-Dinka tribes in Bahar el Gezal and Equatoria and given it to Dinkas.

Is Dinka population larger compared to the rest of all tribes in South Sudan so that they can claim to deserve to be awarded those 13 States out of 28 States?

Where are the rest of South Sudanese, are you going to let Salva and his Dinka Elders of Evil to annex your land in broad daylight like that, while it is taking place right at your finger tips?

For your information, this primitive Salva Kiir with his outdated tribal Dinka Elders of Evil want to continue dominating the South Sudan by employing different kind of strategy as they imposed 28 states in favor of Dinka communities.

They want to continue to dominate the parliament so that when there is voting in the parliament, it will always go in their favor since they become the majority as they have done it when they voted for the implementation of the 28 states.

What is wrong with this man and his outdated Dinka Council of Evil?

Why all government institutions are being headed by Dinkas only than other tribes? Are the rest of the tribes not educated and qualified enough to be heads of the institutions?

Were Dinkas only one fougt for the liberation of the South from the North?

These are some of the questions, others must ask questions before supporting this tribal domination and fighting for Dinkas’ tribal interest?

Hence, domination comes through many forms, and the current structure in the new country portends oppression and marginalization of other tribes which may result in more conflicts if those who devise this evil will not reverse the course.

We must be wise enough to question this current system and call for reform before it is too late. If we claim that we can help bring change for the betterment of our society, then, let us dig deep and prevent our Dinkas brothers and sisters from these divisive activities.

Otherwise, South Sudan’s problem is far from over.

Therefore, resistance moment should not bother going to Juba because we need to solve most of our country’s problems now rather than later.

Hence, there will never be a real peace because communities will fight against one another due to their lands being annexed to Dinka communities in every corner all over the country.

Thus, all South Sudanese should stand together against these evil elders because they are primitively running the country while devising primitive ways and ideas to mislead our country.

    Non dinka communities shall fight against dinkas until dinkas are defeated. The war is not even close to end, it’s just beginning. We thought Dr Riek was going to lead the way, but he decided to join with juba, let him go. New leadership are arising, with updf now out of the way, new phase of uprising is on the way.

    Dear Nhial T. Ruach,

    Thank you for your article, but I was just wondering if you could inform the public that yours is a creditable piece of writing by telling us which part of Jikany Nuer land reach in oil in Upper Nile is given to Dinka? Peace is not a joke, we had it tough here in South Sudan. If you are planning to have a safe landing then stop creating unfounded information and misinforming people. What would you benefit if South Sudan continue to loose people because of power hungry people like you? People such as Dr. Riak Machar and Dr. Lam Akol stabbed the people’s movement in the back as the movement was making gains, do you know why? They were already thinking of power and the wealth linked to that. These two guys are intellectuals but unfortunately a war lord remains a war lord till they are dead. They have gone to Khartoum and took up positions and then came back later. When the referendum was approaching, Dr. Lam went to the Gulf countries to raise money to derail the referendum because he has unsettled business with Dinka on land. Dr. Riak Machar also made a a deal with some Americans to prevent the referendum from taking place discovered by Cdr. Pagan Amum. If tribal land is an issue that is so important then let all people move out of the areas they see tey are not part and remain in the areas they see they belong to! alright, if you are a Dinka remain in your land if your a Nuer remain in your land and if you are Shilluk the same applies. In this way we can talk about people living in peace if that is your mind set. South Sudan unfortunately belong to all and as a citizen you can go any where and reside without any problem because that is what the constitution says. But, people like you want the poor people in the villages to murder one another for you to come to stay in another tribe town/land because you are in power what a thought! Healing and Reconciliation will never take roots if people of your kind continue to talk like this. There are many wrong things in your writing that I will leave for others to have a say but i would advice you as a brother to keep these things to yourself otherwise there are ,many things people know but they want to look on the positive in-order to move on. Thank you.

    It is democracy. If you think we people are stupid it is your own problem
    it is out choice so you have to respect the choices of other people. It is s fundamental human rights to have ones own choice. We know why we choose to support our government
    It is the same thing we S.Sudanse cannot detect which party should rule America. So unless you do not know what is democracy. So allow exercise our will freely until the time if we want to change our government.

    Good article fellow !

    Dinka are not really the main problem in South Sudan simply because they are the minority if you compare them with 60 plus tribes in South Sudan. So, the 60 plus tribes in South Sudan unknowingly licensed and permitted Jenge-Dinka to have dominion over them.

    Dinka’s marginalization, grabbing of others’ lands, mass killing of non-Dinka tribes, and terrorization of others can be halted in a heartbeat, if the majority(60 something tribes) collectively and unreservedly decides to revoke the Dinka’s dominion lincense


  5. Dear Alex : in America there is real democracy, which allowed every’ citizen to speak out on the issues they think or belive 5hire government is not doing well on it. Also congress monaters goverment parctices in domastic and international issues, which call checks and balance. In South Sudan we are lacklng those insutiutions. In other words you have no choice.
