May 24, 2011 (RUMBEK) – South Sudan’s army set fire to over 7,000 homes in Mankien payam [district] of Unity state after they took the area back from southern rebels on Sunday.

The southern military (SPLA), has been accused by civilians and an official in Mayom of burning down the villages of Watna Buma, Lony Buma, Loath Buma and Bore Buma, which are situated south of Mankiem.

The SPLA accused citizens in the area of hosting a rebel militia that had clashed with the southern army last week.

The operational commander of the SPLA’s division four, Major General Koang Chuol, warned that citizens who side with the militias would be given the same treatment as them.

Mayom commissioner Charles Machieng Kuol told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that on 20 May the SPLA attacked rebel militias at four Payams of Mankien South leaving 7,800 homes burnt to ashes.

Kuol said that he was surprised that the SPLA had set fire to so many villages. He said, he did not know why the SPLA had burned the homes and strongly condemned the destruction.

He added that the SPLA were responsible for giving protection to civilians rather than being against it citizens. Kuol said he had tried to appeal to the Unity state governor about the actions of the SPLA but the governor said he had not been informed of what had happened.

Kuol said the governor told him he will discuss these issues with division four commanders to find solutions to the situation.

The Mayom commissioner urged the Mayom members of the state level and South Sudan parliaments to discuss ways of helping displaced people from the areas and to help those who had lost their homes.

SPLA Maj. Gen. Koang Chuol from Unity State has told Sudan Tribune that their forces did set fire to house in the area but it was caused by cross-firing between them and the rebels.

He denied that houses were burnt deliberately but as a consequence of fighting with the militia. He added that the role of the SPLA was to protect citizens rather than turning against them.

Following recent deadly clashes last week in Unity State, the United Nation Mission in Sudan has expressed concern over the violence and heavy loss of life.

Around 100 people were killed in clashes in March this year. The South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA) claim that 150 people have been killed in the recent clashes.

The SSLA are led by former SPLA general Peter Gatdet Yaka who took up arms against the South Sudan government in March, accusing them of corruption and being dominated by the Dinka tribe.

The UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) has regularly expressed concern for civilians in the area.

The UN mission has urged all groups in South Sudan to look for a means to enter peaceful negotiations to solve disputes and desist from targeting civilians.

      No,

      This was done by Nyagateen, the rebels of Gadet.

      The rebels are angry because the local civil population is not cooperating with them because since there is no reason to leave their for unknown war.

        SPLA are SAF have no difference now in their criminal actions. Why burn the homes of your own civilians you are supposed to protect just like the SAF is burning Abyei homes of Ngok Dinka?

        For SAF is understandable because they see Abyei civilians as their enemies. But is SPLA seeing Mankien civilians as enemies?

        During the 21 years of war, SAF used the same criminal way of punishing the South Sudanese civilians accusing them of hosting the SPLA soldiers in their villages. Is this the same act the SPLA is coping?

        James Hoth Mai of SPLA chief of staff should tell his home body, Koang Chol of Division Four to go back to Nasir and practice this anti-Nuer burning of civilian homes. He is proving to be a slave hearted officer. The Nuer should disown him.

        If he is a fighter he should only have stationed himself in Mankien and instead protect the civilians from Gatdet’s militias. Now he is the one killing the civilians. What a fool!

          I also blame those foolish militias of Peter Gatdet Yak for fighting their war in their own villages. Didn’t they know that what they are doing will mostly harm their own grandmas and grandpas, mothers, fathers, children, their cattle and now destruction of their 7000 houses? Those are foolish militias with poor war strategies.

              Dear brothers and sisters,

              I have just talked to a well placed SPLA senior officer and this is what he told me.

              1/ He said Taban Deng Gai and the Division Four commander Maj. General James Gatduel Gatluak have disagreement between themselves on how to handle the fight against the Gatdet’s forces.

              The disagreement started when the militias of Gatluak Gai entered Guit, the home county of Taban Deng Gai. Then Maj. Gen. Gatduel ordered to attack the militias in the county, but Taban Deng refused because he did not want the war to be fought in his home county and harm civilians. He said he would use peaceful means to talk to Gatluak Gai.

              2/ When forces of Peter Gatdet entered Mankien, Taban order Gatduel to launch the attack but Maj. Gen. Gatduel, who also comes from Mayom county like Peter Gatdet refused, saying this would equally harm the civilians of Bul. He said a peaceful means would be reached with Gatdet instead. Taban insisted that the fight should be ordered, but Gatduel refused.

              3/ Then Gatduel’s deputy, Maj. Gen. Koang Chol, was called to Bilpam last week by the SPLA high command and was briefed to take over the war against Peter Gatdet in Unity state. This is how Koang Chol went back to Bentiu and launched that barbaric attack and burning of Bul Nuer homes. Koang Chol comes from Nuer of Nasir like James Hoth Mai.

              Now do you see how the SPLA war is calculated to be a Nuer-Nuer war using some elements of slave hearted Nuer sons?

              Our leaders in GOSS are just praying to continue receiving their monthly salaries and no body will condemn this barbaric act against our people.

              When they fought with George Athor they did not burn down Pigi county of Gier Chuang and George Athor. Now they are telling our weak sons to do it in Nuer land and our leaders are keeping silent, giving a deaf hear and blind eye to the situation.

              I appreciate Maj. Gen. James Gatduel Gatluak for detecting that the war is not about the government vs rebels, but a calculated one to exterminate the Nuer using their own foolish sons and leaders.

It were you in the last few days who claimed that all the military components of the SPLA and their commands are Nuer, why crying your own made misfortunes again when the army and the Nyagateen belongs to you?

          Please, tell your illitrate uncle Gatdet to stop instructing his hungry militias to hide in civilian villages otherwise, they will always expect torture on their abandoned mothers and sisters in the villages.

        Mr. Quol Quot,

        Are you really mentally sensible to comprehend issues like what you said. You have read the official version of the County Commissioner and still saying it is Nyagateen, whom do you think can be fooled or who do you think does not know that SPLA is just aggregates of tribal sentiment meant to protect Barh el Ghazal Dinka power in Juba. This was done by these native of Greater Bahrzal Dinka to protect Kiir power.

        They do not know that doing so would even make Kiir quit power in the near future. It is a war crime and the way the international Community has translated it has a lot to regret. How many innocent civil do you think have been displaced and are going to loss their lives to the rains, cold and so many adverse rainy season effects. What is civilian protection if SPLA can do such a harm more than Gadet considered as an enemy and if such act persists, why blame rebels when they have logical reasons to oust out this government.

      To Ajok (2), ..... And so you become IDPs in equatoria, all your generals sold their guns, retired to cattle keeping and became illegal arms traders to Konyi’s LRA. Commando of Hoth with some significant Nuer present, nuba and BEG become the main force and BEG region the main source of recruits. Your bor nomads generals illegal arms traders with terrorist LRA boomed unabated as Garang turned a blind eye to it. You would buy second hand cloth in uganda and carry it on your donkey back to BEG to buy cows and rear at mundri. Bor were not conscripted or simply exempted from military service. Your few army elements were either security personnels,tax collectors, logistic officers or rear base commanders. Dinka spla now is at a defensive position against khartoum and BEG the back bone. This foolish majority now felt the heat of that very big mistake. They also saw an apparent injustice towards them and have to kick in their own fashion.mobile force would come on foot all the way from BEG to Juba frontline under military obligations. They would only fire a shot at the enemy and desert back to bhar ghazal on foot again. Equatorian were not to be spared in this unfolding drama, the ruthless mobile force on their way would bit, rape, loot honey chickens and so and so. Bor nomad generals on the other hand would shamelessly graze their herds on equatorian gardens. The resentment among the equatorian rank was not to be underestimated by the Dinka bor nomad generals and BEG ruthless mobile force.surely they must kick back too in their own fashion as well. So they get recruited to Dinka spla with their thoughts hanging in limbo as to what was the priority. Should they liberate their town Yei from arabs? Or first save their gardens from Dinka cows and their civilian population from Dinka spla terrorism. So Yei got captured but there was a sting in the tail- equatoria sons deserted back to their respective villages and lashed the Dinka and their cows with a blow knock out of equatoria.

    Mr. Charles M. Kuol.

    You must understand that, SPLA is become a national army and if the civilians don’t respect national army then, they have to faces punishment. These rebels will be treated just same like the SPLA was been treated by Sudan government and that is all. The people who know the history of the SPLA should teach those counties telling them that, associate with defaction rebels is one of the worst thing to avoid if you are wise people.

    Gatdate will learn more what he has create to the people of Mayom county and if the civilians seem to support rebels then, there will be a big punishment to face. The only way for this community was to distancing themselves from any rebel otherwise, they would faces a every toughest situation they have never seen in their life time.

      National army? it’s an SPLM(communist) party army paramilitary group who are in essence the party’s militia.

      National army is one that is professional and respecful of civilians lives and their properties. What SPLA(which becomes SPLM communist armed militia) is making more enemies than friends.

      If you have any analytical ability please read the below sources:


      My source within the SPLA intelliegence cirle told me that the burning of over 7000 homes in unity state is the resulted

      of an act of desperate revenge from the DEFEATED SPLA remanants from the ABYEI front lines. The retreating SPLA battalions who are being persued in hot persued by Sudan Armed forces ran deep into greater Bar el- ghazal area especially some went into neigboring Warrap states. those are the culprits who are doing the burning and most of whom are Dinka battalions’ he said.

      My sources said, that this acts is in effect plunged South deeper into what it terms tribals plots and the consequences will be far greater than what Jallaba did in Abyei ’’ he concluded!

      Folks i knew Nuer would not have don this except the top officers who are being used. now it’s clear that Dinka Defeated SPLA remenants from Abyei felt shame as to show the world that they are brave as to burned dowm the innocents homes.! well, My Sources add’’ General Matip is not talking to any body telling his aides to not pick up any phone calls from Kiir.

    Dear readers,

    I am very sorry for what happened to the houses of Mankien citizens, what the commissioner has said is true, our national army must learn to differentiate between the citizen and the rebel. This is a responsibility that every officer should bear in mind, otherwise what do the SPLA want to achieve if it is not the safety of southerners. These citizens are caught between the rebels and the government army and are threaten from both sides, so who will protect them. Ask them not to support the rebels, but provide the security so that the rebels will not reach and threaten them to provide food and their children. Let’s be wise enough to work for the welfare of the citizens wherever we go. War is bad and all the rebels should seek ways of making peace with the government. Long live South Sudan.

    This is how SPLA should behave!. Burn down the villages of innocent people. Is it not good enough to burn all these villages because the rebels were once in control of them? It is another effective way to diffuse the shame and military defeat in Abyei.

    Where were the will, motivation, courage and determination when all citizen of Abyei were forced to leave South Bahr El Arab? When the Jalab took over Abyei?

    WE know, when SPLA was burning the southern Sudanese villages, some coward SPLM/GoSS was telling the UN that "we’re sorry attacking the Jalaba polling army on 19 May".

    (By the way this article on apology has been removed from the website) for those who did not read it.

    Yes! SPLA is good and tough on Southerners, and coward before the Jalaba forces. They are fantastic in making the life of people miserable and taking illegal taxes on boarder and everywhere in the South.

    This kind of behavior is what I call war crimes. Still, SPLA will be unable to finish rebellions because they are supported by the people who suffer the most from them. SPLA is clearly seen as an uncontrolled militia of coward criminals.

    Killing our people and burning our villages is an act of heroism. It is the main task of SPLA - finishing everything in the South and give our land and resources to the foreign companies and the West.

    It is too late to stop SSLA. All the people of the South are fed up. Pressure on them cannot be tolerated anymore.

    Down with the incompetent GoSS

    Down with SPLA Junta

    Down with SPLM corrupted party

    Down with Abyei short-sighted stupid Militia

And now they have turned their anger to burned civilians homes in another tribe area. what a mess!!!!! They can not even defeat the Jallab army with those Ukrainians Tanks bought in 2009 by GOSS. what a coward lunatics.

    Now do you see how the SPLA war is calculated to be a Nuer-Nuer war using some elements of slave hearted Nuer sons?

    Our leaders in GOSS are just praying to continue receiving their monthly salaries and no body will condemn this barbaric act against our people.

    When they fought with George Athor they did not burn down Pigi county of Gier Chuang and George Athor. Now they are telling our weak sons to do it in Nuer land and our leaders are keeping silent, giving a deaf hear and blind eye to the situation.

    I appreciate Maj. Gen. James Gatduel Gatluak for detecting that the war is not about the government vs rebels, but a calculated one to exterminate the Nuer using their own foolish sons and leaders.

      Mr. Truthteller

      The only difference between your sources and my sources is that the implementation of that barbaric act was done by Defeating SPLA cowards who are running away from Abyei.

      This ordered could have been executed well before the invasion of Abyei, and the reason it didn’t happened before is that the Division four officers mostly composed from Nuer sons mostly from Unity state of Bull have refused the order.

      But, with the fall of Abyei, the oppurtunity arose to used those desperate defeated elements from Abyei and used them to burn those homes.


      This note is to KOANG CHUOL and Gathoth Mai. You know that you have fought against your own people in the past(especially during the ’80s now you are at it again.
      please, Nasir sons are the most loyal of their community in Eastern the whole Nuer community. please cease this barbaric act or you will not escape DEATH this time.
