UDSF candidate for NBGS president slams SPLM electoral propaganda


By Ngor Arol Garang

February 6, 2010 (KHARTOUM) — Southern Sudan’s United Democratic Salvation Front (UDSF), candidate for Governor of Northern Bahr el Ghazal president dismissed allegations that he is sponsored by the National Congress Party adding that his past in the SPLA long struggle is his best advocate.

With charisma typical of a seasoned politician and enthusiasm of an Athlete in his last lap of a long distant run, Kawac Makuei Mayar, stood before multitude of people in his hometown of Aweil North County and declared his candidacy for the seat of Governor of Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, against SPLM official nominee, incumbent Governor Paul Malong and the most popular independent candidate General Dau Aturjong.

UDSF candidate, Makuei denied during a meeting organized by his supporters in Awil twon on Saturday what he described as SPLM "cheap political maneuvers, scare tactic" that other Southern Sudanese political parties as being "Arab sponsored".

The candidate told the gathering he had dedicated all his live to the cause of southern Sudan for nearly half a century.

The former Commander of Jamus battalion in the SPLA, said he still enjoys more supports from most members of the SPLM as he was the first soldier in the region to shoot a bullet in the name of the liberation struggle.

He reiterates for the up-tenth time that he was more committed to the vision of SPLM than those within the party itself.

However, he was quick to say that his only discrepancy with the party being "the lack of consistency and strategies incompatible" with his principles as a politician. But said he would remain a Southern Sudan Revolution fighter openly committed to a full liberation of the region.

The candidate said he is a typical separatist therefore UDSF gives him the liberty to lead his people in that direction without confusing statements and wordings like "making unity attractive" and "cheating" the NCP while secretly campaigning for separation, typical of the cadres in SPLM.

"I cannot do that" he said, adding the chairperson of SPLM, President Salva Kiir is his fellow comrade in arms.

Makuei in announcing his candidature has asked those with a short memory to remember of times when he literarily bailed SPLA/M out of jail. When he broke the siege set by Abdhalla Chuol and Gai Tut, leading the first contingent of recruits from Bahr el Ghazal into Ethiopia and opening the way for others who later followed.

"SPLM is mine", he said, "I have saved it before and will do it again if need be. I will always protect its interest from harm and I am willing to go far and beyond working with SPLM as long as our common interest remains liberation of Southern Sudan".

The current Chairperson of SPLA War Veterans Commission, concluded by saying that he is dedicating his very last political move to his fallen comrades.

    Event thought you are the first person to fire your gun shot to the enamy. and you have linked with NIP/NCP. you would be count as a person who stabbed the movement at the back. but the good thing is you came out openly to denial that is goog becaused being a betrayal or connection with enamy is a crime in DINKA culture.

      Hello Dinka Dominated SPLA &Dinka Boy,

      For your information do not rushed to comments for what you don’t know for other tribes without knpwing the reasons behind that. Yesterday of WES which both of you included the entire Greater Equatorian as betrayal of the southern interests. Today its appears that Dinkas are betrayal of the SPLA/M and tomorrow will other different tribes behind that, so please do not jump to insult the whole Equatoria.

      Yesterday was Equatorian, today is Dinkas and tomorrow will be other tribes who know. There is one big problem remains unsolved and undebated. We are the enemy for ourself.
      Thanks and God bless.

    Bravo Kawac Makuei Mayar

    I am sure you will win the up coming election to show these stupid (SPLM) candidates who accused for nothing.

    You are the hero of the movement.

    The people of Norhten Bhar el Ghazal, need a candidate like you who has a vision and change that people can believe in more than (SPLM).

        To Dinka Boy

        My party is (SPLM), but this is not a (SPLM) that I know.

        Look we all fight for freedom under the name (SPLM/A).
        It does n’t means that we have to stick with only one party. anybody has right to form his /her own party and nobody should accuse one another for no reason.

        Remember Dinka Boy, (SPLM) must stay a way from this election. Otherwise, many people will loose their lives in up coming election because of their invovement.

        This election will be about someone who can bring change and hope that people can believe in.

        This election will not be about (SPLM/A) candidate who does not have plan for the

        people and the future of the coutry. I believe people will vote for candidate whom they trust.

        (SPLM/A) will never force people to vote for their candidates.

    I hope our southerners are going to for the right leaders, than those who favors NCP. I know there are people that receiving money from NCP at this time, but they do not know that southerners are not stupid to vote for them, because the NCP brought nothings to south, but bloodshed to our people.
