South Sudan says none of its soldiers joined former presidential adviser


March 24, 2011 (AGOK) - The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLA) on Thursday denied that any of its soldiers had defected to the ex- presidential advisor on traditional affairs, Abdul Bagi Ayii Akol Agany, who announced from Khartoum the launch his rebellion against the Juba based Government of South Sudan (GoSS) on 10 March 2011.

In an interview with the Khartoum-based, Sudan Media Center, last week Ayii said 3,000 SPLA soldiers had defected to join his ranks, a few days after he announced the launch of his rebellion against the regional government, accusing president Kiir of refusing to listen to him on issues he claimed pertinent to building peace and development for the government and for people of South Sudan. He also demands 30 percent representation for Muslims in the government cabinet.

However, SPLA spokesperson, Colonel Phillip Aguer Panyang, in statements to Sudan Tribune, from Juba, on Thursday categorically dismissed Abdel-Bagi’s allegations saying the latter was lying and that none of the South Sudan army’s troops had defected.

"No single SPLA soldier has gone with him. What he said was a pure lie. How can an SPLA soldier who fought against the government that killed his own people follow someone like Abdel Bagi Ayii, who has been living a militia life for all his age?" said Colonel Aguer.

"He is lying. Nobody has gone with him from the Dinka Malual. What I know is that Khartoum is recruiting for him from Murrahaleen and former child soldiers in Khartoum", he added.

The Murrahaleen are armed bands on Rizeiqat and Misseriya from South Darfur and South Kordofan. They fought against the SPLA during the years of civil war and were accused of committing atrocities against southern civilians in South Sudan.

"He did not go with anybody. I am even told none of his sons accepted to follow him. They [his sons] even attempted persuading him to change his mind before he could announce his rebellion last week in Khartoum", emphasized the SPLA officer.

Ayii was one of the leaders of the armed groups from the south which fought against the former rebel movement, SPLM/A, as a pro-government militia, in areas adjacent to former SPLM/A liberated areas in the south during more than two decades of North-South civil war.

Based in the border town of Merem, previously in Western Kordofan state, now part of South Kordofan in central Sudan, armed groups loyal to him were accused of collaborating with the pro-government militias "Popular Defense Forces" to attack civilians in southern villages from his home state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal during the war. His forces were also accused of participating in abducting children and women.

After the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the SPLM and the National Congress Party (NCP), Abdel-Bagi became part of GoSS, following the inking of the 2006 Juba Declaration which saw armed groups integrated into the SPLA.

He was named presidential advisor on border and traditional affairs in 2007. However, in June 2010, the president of GoSS, Salva Kiir Mayardit, excluded him from his new cabinet following reports of political differences over nomination procedures for candidates contesting various positions in the last general elections conducted in April 2010 for Northern Bahr el Ghazal.

      Abdel Baggi Ayii had run out of money and would like to generate more money from Khartoum extremists for being against South Sudan.
      These South Sudan militias (Ayii, Athor, Gatluak, Yauyau) are all fools who have no vision and lack conscience.
      They will all fail with their ill wish to South Sudan people and their government.

        Thank Mr Philip Aguer Panyang for having explained and disclosed the misrepresented message of hypocrisy that was by Abdel Baggi Ayii to the South Sudan citizens.

        We could have agreed to criticise and examine Mr Ayii’s statements if he had announced his defection and with those nuisances claims within Juba capital city of South Sudan and/or at his Home-Town. I doubt of Ayii’s claims! if Ayii is truly claiming the rights of Southerners then why did he ran to Khartoum? And when are the southerners ‘decisions be independent by not being monitored by Arabs?

        Thank to Mr Ayii’s sons who did not agree with their father when they had seen him on the wrong side of the coin.

        Mr Ayii’s sons the nation deserves for you and shall God bless such concerned of the nation in you. Thank and double thank for that pleases!!!

      We don’t need to rush things like this, let’s give peace a chance and negotiate with this guy. He just needs somebody to listen to him in Juba.

      War is not going to take us anywhere at this time. If the war can take us somewhere, than we would’ve done that with Athor and his cronies.
      So please guys thinks carefully before you act. It is too soon for this guy to have soldiers that can wage an open war against SPLA forces.

      I urge Juba to open line of negotiations with this guy before things get out of hands. And please, and please SOUTHERNERS stop rushing things that would come back and nib us in our buts. I hear you frustrations and anger but I’m sure you can control it especially in this forum. Thanks

      "Latest challenge for South Sudan: Armed internal rebellion

      McClatchy Newspapers

      KHARTOUM, Sudan — After weeks of scattered clashes that left hundreds dead, rebel militias in Southern Sudan have united in a new armed movement against the young southern government, raising the prospect of civil war even before South Sudan declares independence in July.

      "We have formed a new group. It is called the Southern Sudan Democratic Movement. We are calling the army the Southern Sudan Army," said renegade general George Athor, who is heading the rebel command, speaking earlier this week by satellite phone from an undisclosed location.

      The new coalition formally brings together five different armed militias spanning four of South Sudan’s 10 states, said the rebel leader. General Bapiny Monituel, who leads one of the five factions and whose forces have clashed heavily with the southern military in the past days, confirmed the emergence of the umbrella movement under Athor during an interview with McClatchy in the northern capital Khartoum.

      The formation of the new rebel coalition confirms fears that the spreading patchwork of miniature insurgencies would coalesce under a single coordinated campaign against the southern military, posing an existential threat to the world’s newest nation before it even officially comes on the scene.

      The United States and other Western countries had pushed hard for Southern Sudan’s January referendum on independence to proceed as promised, hoping the nation’s partition would bring a final chapter to decades of war that has left Southern Sudan one of the least developed places in the world, with 2 million dead.

      Now it appears that the U.S.-backed peace process may succeed in ending the south’s longstanding war against Sudan’s northern government, but in the process will spin off an extremely fragile state wrought with violent internal divisions of its own.

      The real strength of the new rebellion is still not known, but momentum is on its side. Defections from within the southern military are increasing almost daily, and the militias are gaining manpower on the ground as a series of messy military offensives by the southern army - the Sudan People’s Liberation Army - has failed to deal a decisive blow.

      So far, the southern government’s main response to the rebellion has been to accuse the northern government of arming the dissidents, just like old times.

      "This (new rebel movement) will not be a new thing for us because we already know that they are being coordinated by the military intelligence in Khartoum," said Philip Aguer, the SPLA spokesman. Athor called these accusations of northern support "big lies." Monituel also dismissed the claim, saying he only has enough guns for 3,000 of his 5,000 men and lacks even a vehicle on the ground.

      Earlier this month, senior southern Cabinet member Pagan Amum released internal northern military documents alleging that Athor was receiving arms from the north last year. But a number of independent experts have dismissed the documents as poor forgeries.

      The disparate renegade commanders have many differences, but they seem united by a list of local and tribal grievances about the current southern leadership. These grievances date back to the previous war, when the SPLA - then the main southern group fighting against the northern government - fractured largely along tribal lines.

      Then, the splinter commanders formed competing movements, but most ended up covertly aligning with the northern government to receive arms to fight the main SPLA force. In exchange, the breakaway factions helped clear their area for oil exploration.

      After the 2005 peace deal between the SPLA and the northern government, which established regional self-rule leading up to this year’s referendum, many chose to reintegrate into the SPLA, but others chose to join the northern military instead.

      Monituel was one of the latter.

      "It’s better to be with the north than (with) a Dinka, because I know we cannot stay together with Dinka men for more than five days," he gave as an explanation for his decision at his home on the outskirts of Khartoum, where his six years on a general’s salary could explain the new shiny Hummer parked outside.

      His comments underscored the deep tribal bitterness fueling the individual power plays.

      Monituel is a Nuer, Nilotic rivals closely related to the Dinka, Southern Sudan’s dominant ethnic group. The Nuer comprised the majority of the breakaway fighters during the war, but many have since reconciled with the SPLA, whose founder and current leader is a Dinka.

      Athor, a Dinka, lives on Nuer land, and most of his fighters are Nuer. Two other factions in the new rebel movement are from other marginalized tribal minorities, the Shilluk and the Murle.

      According to James Kuong Ninrew, a Presbyterian pastor who heads the Nuer Peace Council, which works on conflict resolution and reconciliation, the rebellions do not currently have the broad support of community leaders on the ground, but he warned that the heavy-handed response risks worsening the situation.

      "If they (the SPLA) don’t handle this well, it will end up as tribal kind of clashes. And once it becomes tribal, people will join without knowing exactly what’s the cause," said Ninrew.

      He blamed the SPLA for failing to seriously pursue peaceful integration of the militias into the army.

      "They (the SPLA) are not ready to absorb all of them," said Ninrew.

      Athor - a former deputy chief of staff of the SPLA who rebelled after losing a gubernatorial race late last year, and who is believed to maintain strong connections and some inside support from within the SPLA - said he is ready to talk with the government.

      "We are willing to negotiate very much, but I don’t think they will accept. The SPLA only knows the sound of bullets," said Athor.

      His demands include inclusion in the new constitutional review, representation in an interim government until new elections can be held, and integration of his forces into the SPLA.

      Monituel said he sent his troops south in order to integrate into the SPLA, but now he is not interested after the SPLA instead attacked his positions. In the three days of ensuing fighting, the SPLA is believed to have suffered heavy losses, and his men held their ground.

      Now, the emboldened warlord says he is preparing for war.

      "They wanted to attack us. Now there is no solution except fighting," he said."

      Its time for the youth to know that, power greediness always give evil thoughts.....I would say, its time for us the youth to open our eyes and think of the bright future of our new born country rather than dying following the primitive, rigid and dead-minded oldies who wanted to die with others on no reason.

      Ya shababna, lets think twice before driven to darkness...I can’t imagine how people would follow losers who wanted to rebel against their own citizens i.e. brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children etc.

      Why are we so rigid and backward in thinking?!?! Lets come to our sense of developing the country and make it free from corruption, terrorism, smuggling, discrimination, racism etc .........country with absolute generosity!

      Watch out and join them on your own risk!!

    Mr. Ayii Akhol Agany;
    As your name suggest, you will quarell to yourself with your acquired muslims attitude and slavery mind. You know the reasons why Salva was not accepting your advices. If you were telling him to pay you 30% from South Sudan resources to make convert of Northern Bar El Ghazal christian and animist to become muslims- it is a white lie my devil father. If you were telling Salva to cooperate with you to loot South Sudan resources, it is also a white lie.

    Salva should not listen to those degrading advises. He is a true nationalist compare to yourself- the great slave of Arabs muslims.

    I do not know why his sons spare his life? They should assesinate him immediately before allowing him to escape to Khartuom.

    Salva should listen to us and not you. He did good to omit you from his Advisory list. Congratulations to Salva.

    Salva is a man who keeps such secrets to himself, and there was a leak of such filthy advices from you heard by the public, you could have been killed immediately by true nationalists. We are not joking man.

    Cibaipiath is closed to you mr. Ayii. You are a wrong element in Northern Bar El Ghazal.

    Hey guys!
    Don’t be worry bout so call Abdul Bagi! He is a Fucken Dead Muslim.

    For those who are still using Ngundeng ideologies, please be inform! Ngundeng had shameful things to be said about him. First,

    He was not a Prophet but a profit to his royalist in Nuer.
    He had many names according to his activities in many parts of South Sudan.
    He was a Cannibal animal according to Nuer man who doesn’t need to be mentioned
    His first name was Ngundeng-meaning that he was send by God.
    After he gone wild and ran away.
    His name changed to be Gatluakmanguel in Nuer dialect.
    He ate many Nuer men and women in Nuer Land
    Dinka. His name was Manyang e Juet.
    He ate many children, animal claviers and cows’s bulls in Dinka Land.
    Equatoria with different languages including English and Arabic
    His name was Tiger

    The Nuer man who refused to be target by Ngundeng’s salves pointed out that. Ngundeng had no father or mother but the Devil who came out in the River Nile in a form of fish, when the Nuer boys want for fishing. They fish for so many hours and they caught nothing, when the boys get tied and ready to go back home. One of them told other guys that there was a fish ate his hook lastly, the boy convinced other friends to tried one more time! Shortly after he putted on snail body on the hook, he had thrown it into Nile River. Immediately, Ngundeng was caught. The boy was attempting to pull the Fish Ngundeng out in the river but it was difficult for him to do so, then he called his associates to pull Ngundeng on the shore. They brought it out and they were smile some of them were told to go and collect firewood in order for the young men to roast their fish.

    Unfortunately! The Fish Ngundeng changed into big snake! And the boys ran away from it, the boys thought that they were dreaming and they came back for the second times. The Snake Ngundeng light it body and become bright as well as electricity light. They ran home and they spread the news to the community, when the Nuer elders came to the place where Ngundeng was pulled. It was still there as snake with it light. People gather together around it and started asking question how did this happen? The Snake Ngundeng changed into human being and told people not to run away. All of them were shocking and scary to death except Human Ngundeng who perform such witchcraft. things "Come down, come down now!" The Human Ngundeng said. Who are you? The Nuer elders asked him. I am Nyajok_ which mean woman devil! The Human Ngundeng answer! She knew her own physical appearance as she is a hermaphrodite. (A person with both the organs of a man and a woman) Wow! Brothers and sisters of Nuer I am sorry for your Profit. Nyajok Ngundeng was not a Prohet? It was your profit to cheat people for his power but It was not a Prophet? It was a Satan?

      Mr. Dinkanuer;
      I want you to be wise indeed as somebody of integrity and have core values of this struggle. I do not expect you to be repeating all your anger on all nuers for the seek of one rioten mind person just like Abdel-bagi Ayii. We want to condemn any person who is oppossing our co-existence as Southerners.

      Although am from Bar El Ghazal, i do not encourage the move or plot made by Ayii. We need to condemn that. Abdel-bagi should be thankful to his country men for their success to free South Sudan from foreigners. I believed the parents of Abdel Bagi all comes from Dinka ancestry lines. None is from Arab. What made Ayii to be muslim is because of the continuous poverty that ranged from his Childhood to that stage he is now. Therefore, he is an alien.

      His fabricated declaration of war against Government of South Sudan was just because he is still begging- Poverty has build a strong concret room in him. What kind of Military strategies does he have at that very old stage? He does not use mirrors to see his faces with wringles that ran around his face and checks. That means all parts of his body has strips of wringles. I do know whether he would wage any ground asault and escape from it.

      Instead of asking Bashir to pay him his pensions- he still motivated himself with lies. God may punish him.

    For this Old Militia man to declare the launch of his rebellion from Khartoum is an evident that the North is creating, arming and supporting them. Nonetheless, Southerners shall overcome and defeat all militias despite enormous backing they receive from Khartoum.

    Mr. Ayii, please, don’t dream of even half percent for your so-called Moslems share in Southern Government. You have fighting us since 1985 along side Arabs. Go back to the north and demand them for 30% representation for your Moslem militia group.

    Let Abdul Bagi Ayii and all those who support him go to hell, we did not go to bush to promote Islam or Christianity in South Sudan but to liberate ourselves from the oppressive regime in the North.

    Even Mr. Yassir Saed Aramani, originally from the north and who fought with us in the bush did not ask for 30% share for Muslims. Are you better than him? eh! Ayii.

    Its very clear that only specific people and specific tribes are fond of rebelling . This is an indication of being power hungry and don’t even know how to govern, given the current mess in the government.Disorganizing systems that are set up. If every body wants to be a leader then how many presidents would we have at a time?. We better look for other people to lead. Those who are silent watching are more capable than those who believe in force governance and surrounded by tribal militias and army.We should desist from using our children in fighting tribal conflicts in the name of crushing a rebellion.

Due to their commitment that why Nuer and some minor tribes followed them and brought GOSS as you witness where you are now i don’t think that you are correct to say that Dinka is a fool majority. without hatred and tribalism there is no sense for you to say that and am telling you am a man who is far away from those two but say what will benefit the south Sudanese people.
      Why can’t we praise he who brought a little in order to get the big one behind?
      Shame on short sighted people and am not against any community in South Sudan apart from Arabs.
      God bless South as a whole

    I know that the so-called Major General Ayii was a humble Chief at Wad el Bashir IDP camp in Omdurman/Suk Libya area in the mid-1990s. How he ended up being a Major General is intriguing. Even more intriguing is his desire to have a position in GOSS, his illitracy notwithstanding. My advise is that we should not put too much credence to his announced rebellion. Ayii wants to get some cash in the next three months before the South formally becomes Independent. And we will see more Ayiis coming up. The NCP will sponsor anybody who cares to talk to their media to create the impression that South Sudan will be ungovernable. They want to gain what they failed to get in the referendum through last ditch manipulation of their Surrogates. However, all in all, these are the lask kicks of a dying horse!!

    What the heck is going on with southerners; it has became a routine now a day whenever anyone lost the postion all he and she has to do is to resort in rebellion as an option

    Such habit is an unworthful to be passed on to next generation truth should be told; matter of fact; that’s won’t help us to flourish as a young new-nation!

    The (Goss) should atleast do better than that in order to avoid inconveniences with its memebers whom they happened to disregard them from their perspective seats in the goverment

    By offering them different positions that meet their qualifications such that to appease them in avoiding chaoses

    Because i don’t think it’s necessarry for the (Goss) to create itself so many militias faction since there’s already a main challeng which is currently unsolved and it could spark or instigate violent anytime as an example the(Abiei)issue

    To those food-loving fellow country-men; be informed that you ’re selling your own right to the enemies; why not be patient nd follow your case with your own brothers and sisters instead of collaborating with x-enemies

    You might be thinking that you have chosen a legitimate procedure but unwisely dirtifying your own self with horrible history as well as your own offsprings!

    As outherners let’s believe in peace harmony!----just be like me and so many others whom are not longing for that oil money as long as our fellow brothers and sisters are happy then why not be cool and you and i will have a piece of it anytime when things are plenty enough to be shared among all and thank you all:)

      This is an indication to the poor enrolment /employment adopted by GOSS.
      How did general Ayii manage to be the president advisor at first place?
      The GOSS should be take heed when it comes to choose the advisors,ministers,etc. Mr kiir will continue to face such challenges untill he stopes employing the wrong people.
      Merci béaucoup.

    South Sudan has now become a burning hell where any dog can rebel just because his personal interest wasn’t respected. How many individuals do we have in South Sudan who can advise on matters pertaining to governance and development? I guess the answer is millions! if we all rebel in the light that our views were ignored, then what good are we bringing to this nation? I wonder why God allows such barbaric, malicious and weird people to exist under the sun.
