February 7, 2011 (KHARTOUM) – Sudanese President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir officially accepted the final results of Southern Sudan referendum paving the way for the region to become an independent state.

President Al-Bashir on Monday issued a Republican Decree accepting final result of the referendum which supports the separation of the South, after the official promulgation of the results in Khartoum on Monday.

"We declare our acceptance of the southern Sudan people’s choice and we pledge to work for resolving the outstanding issues and build constructive relations between north and south Sudan," said a decree read by the minister of presidency affairs Bakri Hassan Salih.

The final result was formally submitted on Monday to Sudan President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir by the chairperson of Southern Sudan Referendum Commission (SSRC), Mohamed Ibrahim Khalil, who said that a total of 98.83 percent of voters opted for independence in the weeklong referendum whose commission organized last month.

Khalil also said that no legal challenges had been lodged against the result and that the referendum was conducted in "a fair and transparent" manner.

Upon receipt of the results at the Presidential Palace in Khartoum, president Al-Bashir said he welcomes the choice of south Sudan people.

"We are with the choice of the southern citizen and sustaining peace in the north and the south" Al-Bashir said.

The nation-in-waiting will officially come to being in July 2011 when the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), which ended more than two decades of north-south civil war and granted the referendum, expires.

North and South Sudan are engaged in intermittent talks to thrash out a set of post-referendum issues; including sharing of oil revenues, demarcation of borders and the status of the hotly contested border region of Abyei.

Later on in the afternoon, the council of ministers held a session in Khartoum attended by president Al-Bashir and Sudan’s First Vice-President and President of Southern Sudan government Salva Kiir Mayadrit to announce the results.

Al-Bashir delivered a speech in which he reiterated welcoming of the result and pledged to resolve post-referendum arrangements before the end of the CPA timeline.

"We promised to give the people of the south the right to self-determination…now that they have chosen independence, we will keep our promise," he said.

"As to post-referendum [arrangements]" Al-Bashir added "we are resolved to reach an agreement on them before the end of the transitional period."

For his part, South Sudan president Salva Kiir lauded the north’s recognition of the new state, saying it would pave the way for other countries to follow suit.

"If the north does not recognize the south no other state will," Kiir said.

The Southern Sudan president said that the secession of the south is not the end of the road. "We will not become enemies of each other and will make sure our relationship remains strong," he further said.

He added that the borders between north and south Sudan would only be "on papers" and there would be no restrictions on movement of trade and citizens.

Kiir said there was a need to expedite the process of resolving post-referendum arrangements before July.

The deputy head of the SSRC and chairman of Southern Sudan Referendum Bureau, Justice Chan Reec Madut, told reporters that the official proclamation of the South Sudan Independence will take place in July with end of the interim period as it is agreed in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

Chan encouraged the two peace partners to resolve outstanding issues and pave the way for joint cooperation between the two countries.

INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION

The announcement was quick to receive acceptance and generate pledges of recognition from a number of countries and international organizations.

U.S president Barack Obama said he was pleased “to announce the intention of the United States to formally recognize Southern Sudan as a sovereign, independent state in July 2011."

In London, the British prime minister David Cameron welcomed the announcement of the referendum results and the positive reaction of the government in Khartoum. He also pledged that the United Kingdom will continue to support the settlement of the remaining issues.

The European Union’s (EU) representative in Sudan, Carlo de Filippi, said that “the EU looks forward to further developing a close and long term partnership with Southern Sudan which is set to become a new state in July 2011."

The United Nations Secretary-General’s Panel on the Referenda in the Sudan, which was established at the behest of the CPA’s partners to monitor the referendum, gave the process its seal of approval and welcomed its results.

"The outcome reflects the free will of the people of Southern Sudan and that the process as a whole was free, fair and credible."

A statement released by the Spokesperson for the U.N Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon welcomed the announcement and hailed the peaceful and credible conduct of the referendum.

The UN chief called on North and South Sudan to expedite an agreement on post-referendum arrangements, including Abyei.

      Thanks Al Bashir for accepting to end the suffering of people of South Sudan. Thank you for endorsing referendum results, paving way for an independent republic in the south.
      Advise, please stop your government from supporting militias in South Sudan from now onwards. Those militias still in the north should be captured and handed over to South Sudan authority should they not cease from their barbaric activities with immediate effect.
      No more support to militias, please we beg you. We know many of those brainless traitors will rebel soon when South Sudan begins to re-organize the army but we do not need north to support them anymore.
      We need peace.

        Dear readers,

        Wow! What a God’s prophet called Ngundeng! Thanks God for revealing our future destiny through his prophet Ngundeng.

        Hello, readers, before I explain to you some of the Ngundeng’s predictions which have resulted to Bashir’s official acceptance of independence, I want to inform you that I am a Christian, believing in Jesus Christ and his father, Jehovah.

        I cannot accept somebody who thinks of Ngundeng as God, but I will agree with the one that calls him simply a God’s prophet.

        I don’t believe in Ngundeng as a God, but I believe that he is God’s prophet because his words have become true and being fulfilled.

        Several major events he prophesied have come true in front of our very own eyes. A Satan cannot predict people of God’s destiny like us in South Sudan if God himself did not give him his vision as his prophet to foretell them on his behalf.

        I don’t worship Moses, or Ezekiel or Elijah because I know that they are just God’s prophets for Israelis just like Ngundeng for God’s people in the South. So, I worship God, not his prophets like Ngundeng or Moses.

        But I believe in their messages because God gave the messages to them. This is why Ngundeng in his songs he said that he is a “Prophet with a vision given to him by God,” when he said in Nuer language “Ghok mi ca kam neeni wang ni Deng.” And he continued to say that “waar kene cang nene ke ken dial,”, or “I see through both night and day.” He might mean that he could see both “revealed and hidden issues.”

        Now back to the topic, if you can all refer to the messages or predictions about Ngundeng which our brother Gatkuoth Deng posted on this website and on Southsudannation.com in 2008/9, you will exactly find the current situation of 2011 being a fulfillment of Ngundeng’s prediction as was in his article about three years ago.

        In that article by Gatkuoth Deng, entitled ‘Ngundeng’s predictions’, Gatkuoth said that Ngundeng said there will be time when the leaders of the North (Rol Mac) will be calm and confine themselves to the North during the request of our land (referendum).

        He said in Nuer, “Rol mac be biet piny ba gueth de luoc e deng, thiece yang cia mi jiak, bi ghok marol a luoc, tare tet kun dong bia te kuee te ke tot ti koang ke lia, ca ben han deng luak jala ke mac mi riaw how.”

        In English he said, “Jalaba will be calm and confine itself, God will overcome his power (arrogance). If I ask for my land is not bad, the leaders of the North will summit, lift up your hands, may be you will have survivors. I have come, the God of the land, holding a weapon that lightens the skies.”

        Well, if you liken that prediction to the surprising positive behavior of northern leaders while we are asking for our land (referendum), it exactly depicts the prediction of Ngundeng. The North has been calm while we carried out the referendum. It has also accepted the results. That is surprising to many people around the world!!!

        And not only had the north, even in the South the new behavior of people during the referendum surprised the whole world. God controlled the behavior of the people as they voted for that ONE HAND (separation) as predicted by Ngundeng.

        Even cattle raiders that used to defy authorities in the South suddenly became calm and stopped cattle raiding during the God’s fulfillment of his prediction. It was a God’s final decision making to free his people through the referendum and he controlled the hearts of the people in the South and the hearts of the northern leaders in the North.

        Remember that in the Bible, God directly intervened by sanctioning Pharaoh’s Egypt through many miraculous events including turning water red and killing the first born of Egyptians until Pharoah backed down and allowed the children of Israel to leave Egypt to the Promised Land.

        Now our God has been using the international community such as the Americans to sanction Bashir’s northern government in order to allow the referendum to take place and accept the vote for secession. Bashir was known for defying American sanctions for very long time since 1997, but now because of God’s prediction, Bashir has surprisingly complied dramatically! What a prediction!

        But that is not all!

        What next?

        Well, before you call me a prophet of doom, I want to tell you that it is not over yet. The final war is coming!
        The present Pharoah (Bashir) has told Moses (Salva Kiir), take your people to the Promised Land.

        Well, the same Pharoah or another sudden new Pharoah may change his mind and want to stop our match as we finally cross the Red Sea to the Promised Land in July (day of declaration of independence).

        Something may happen between now and July 9!

        And that will bring the final war. A brief but terrible war that will defeat the northern army and control of our borders as predicted by Ngundeng. And that will mark the official birth of the new nation in the South.

        Ngundeng said the North will surprisingly start that war. I don’t know how, when and why it will occur, but definitely according to Ngundeng’s prophesies, it will!!!

          Hello Mr. Gatwech!

          I personally give you appreciation for the speech about Ngundeng pertaining to your detailed speaking well grammered sentences.

          We all have that idea of saying bravo to H.E Omar al Beshir for the acceptance of Southern Sudanese decision.

          Besides, nobody is against somebody who was a prophet by all means. We need prophet who predicts good and positive outcomes for new generations.

          On the other hand I would like you to contribute on this website statements that will bring unity & prosperity to the coming new state. This is due to cultivate peace but not controversy. I hope you will behave like the way you’re writing.

          The Almighty God does things through others and that is why He sent us His only beloved son to redeem us from sins. He also speaks through people likewise he did to Moses during the time of exudose of Israelites. Ngundeng might be among these types.
          Praise be to God.
          New sudan oyee!

          You’re absolutely dead on! the war is not over..,,, Final war is around the corner.

          Here is the article that Gatkuoth Deng wrote on South Sudan nation a few months ago:

          Tips about NGUNDENG’s prophesies on South Sudan independence By Gatkuoth Deng, USA

          NOV. 10/2010, SSN; For the last two weeks I have been receiving several email messages in my account by people from various South Sudanese communities asking me to provide some tips about Ngundeng’s prophesies in the run up to the referendum on South Sudan’s independence. This to them is because I wrote three articles about Ngundeng’s prophesies more than a year ago, some of which they now think are beginning to take shape as predicted.
          I would however say that I am not interested to respond to some of their direct questions they want me to answer because some are very sensitive to write about. Besides, I will not be able to provide correct answers to some of them because of difficulty of interpretations. I know many people from the Nuer community, especially elders, already know about many of them and can interpret them with ease. I will only comment on two obvious scenarios that Prophet Ngundeng predicted would happen and nobody is going to avoid. These two are FINAL WAR with the North at around referendum and INDEPENDENCE of the South.
          INDEPENDENCE OF THE SOUTH
          Ngundeng made it clear in many of his songs that his people (southerners) will finally have their own independent country. In his songs in which he described Jalaba (Northern Sudan) as ‘Marol’ or ‘rol maac’ he said his flag will not be mixed with the flag of jallaba. In Nuer he said ‘ca beera bi mat ke beer roal.’ This means different countries because two national flags symbolize two different nations. He also mentioned about the current ten states in the South which recently came into being in 1993 in the federal system introduced by President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir.
          FINAL WAR WITH THE NORTH
          This will never be avoided despite our leaders’ efforts in the South trying to avoid any resumption of war with the North through peaceful process of the referendum and acceptance of its outcome. The North is going to impose war on the South whether the South like it or not. This is what you can understand in Ngundeng’s prophesies in which he predicted final war with the North. This is when he said, “I am tired of getting afraid, people of my father, I have been trying to avoid war for very long time; the previous war will be different, I am ceasing to get afraid…I will fight one fight that I will not avoid, the God for which I built my bases. God has declared bring me my shield, my dang (rode) has made a thundering sound…Jalaba I will kill you that the dead will not be counted…’ In a sign of military defeat finally he said, “Rol maac bi duac leer ba lik de theeng, lik gaan deang ba theeng; (Jallaba I will beat you as I chase you and the thundering sounds shall be heard, the thundering sounds of God’s children shall be heard.”
          In that final and brief war Ngundeng predicted that it will similarly occur in the national capital, Khartoum, when he said “the city of Khartoum baari, it has made my eyes drip with blood…in the city you see blood will overflow the flags and it will equal to no country.’
          Some of Ngundeng’s prophesies, which were passed on to generations in form of songs, were either in parables or nicknames when it comes to personalities or some of the leaders he mentioned. One may easily interpret some and find it difficult to interpret others with accuracy. In some it is difficult to know the personalities involved as well as locations and timing of the predicted events. Others are however easy to understand.
          For example, Ngundeng predicted more than one hundred years ago of a leader to come whom he described as ‘tik yual kuoth bi mac de bool’ in Nuer, and translates ‘The flames of fire of God’s long bearded [man] shall be widespread.’ People during the war time thought it could be either late John Garang or Salva Kiir because of their long beards.
          If we assume that he meant late John Garang, then people would think of the 21 years of war Garang led as the widespread flames of fire. But why did Ngundeng call him ‘God’s long bearded man?’ Could this be that God knew Garang was going to die like a sacrifice to God for his people, or what did it mean? Also remember that in Nuer the word ‘kuoth’ means both ‘God’ or its ‘spiritual being.’ However, Deng means the perceived physical being of God.
          And if we assume that it is Salva Kiir, does it mean another resumed war that Kiir will lead? In some of his predictions in which people think he again referred to Salva Kiir is when he mentioned him as ‘Gat Yardit’ which translates as ‘Son of Yardit’ when he said in his songs as ‘Gat Yardit cang lathne run bie dhili ngac muoce weah I bi cuor riang.’ This translates as ‘Son of Yardit, even if we take years, you will know, I will feed the vultures and get satisfied.’
          Another one is the nickname ‘Kiir Nyal Diing’ which translates as ‘Kiir with many colors.’ He said ‘Kiir Nyal Diing bie ku juoc lom’ (or Kiir with many colors will bring me messages or gossips). These are some of the confusions one cannot clarify or interpret correctly.
          Also many think he mentioned Riek Machar Teny in some of his songs by his third name ‘Teny’. For example, in some of his songs he said ‘bi koak yaanda hoong, ci Teny ku gier kene Dayom…ba ji guori kon nak, ba ke nak ni ke nak Diam…ba tuong guori yap daar.’ This translates, ‘the grave of my cow (land) will be wide open, Teny and Dayom (follower) have made thunderous sounds…I will first kill the military officers, I will kill them like the killing of Diam (Diang?)…the military ranks will be cut in half. People say the military officers mean those that died during the war.
          In a separate mention of Teny he said, ‘Ci tut gueth ci wii e rew, tut Teny gueth ci wi e rew.’ This translates ‘The bull has become powerful, the country has become two, the bull of Teny has become powerful; the country has become two.’ There are other instances where he also mentioned the name ‘Riek.’ Also he mentioned something about ‘left-handed’ person, when he said ‘ci cam ku juor rool…’ or ‘the left-handed has surpassed in the nation…’
          Again, people assume that those prophesied names and many others have to do with the present Vice President, whose first name is Riek, third name is Teny and also left-handed.
          Ngundeng predicted that finally the South will fight and win a brief and terrible war for independence, which the North will impose on the South. He predicted a defeat of the northern army and the full control of an independent South.
          Many people see the return of Ngundeng’s dang (rode) last year as symbolizing the return of power that shall finally overcome the northern aggression. In his songs, Ngundeng said Marol e han maac thok kuoth ni keelo, ba nyuur luak ke paduil tuotha dang…’ It translates ‘Jalaba, let me remind you that God is one, I will be seated [wait] in my luak (South Sudan) polishing my dang (rode). ‘Polishing my dang’ to many people is a parable which means preparing war machinery.
          When dang was brought back to South Sudan from England after 80 years in exile some people were concerned about its snake-like shape, coiled on both ends. Some asked why it looked like the shape of a snake which symbolizes evil, if it were to be something related to God. Well, this is one of the things we may never have an answer to. Even the rode of Moses in the Bible was one time turned into a snake by God in order to swallow the other sticks of Egyptian magicians which turned into snakes. And yet it was the same rode that God gave Moses to cross the people of Israel through the Red Sea. It was also the same rode which was turned into a snake that he struck the mountain with and water gushed out from it in the desert for God’s people to drink.
          Maybe Ngundeng’s reminder to Jallaba that “God is one” could be an answer he was trying to give to Jallaba who thought that they were given permission by the same God to oppress the people of South Sudan. Also Ngundeng acknowledged and gave a clue to those who wanted a final decision on the North-South conflict when he said,‘e han Deng emo kua ngeer ewa thiele gik mi lara, guice cuur en taathe, cango bake nako cet ke hook lang....e han wut mi bi luak da riw cet ke pai.’ It translates ‘It is me Deng (God) that people gossip about that I don’t make final decisions; look at what I am building up; the day I will kill them like cattle…I am the man whose luak (land) will shine like moon.’
          To be continued…

        We have just finished the S. Sudan lberation. Our next liberation will be on Murle. This liberation has to happen, otherwise, our fight against the Arab will be meaningless because a total freedom has not been achieved in Jonglei state and especially in our home counties. All we need is to gather our youth, where ever they maybe and then lead our next struggle against the murle. They are our next oppressors and we have to achieve your our freedom at all cost. They are doing what Arab was not even doing to us: Arab was concerned mainly with oil. Murle is killing our mothers and fathers and abducting and selling our children. They are taking away our wealth in forms of cattle. Is this the community we have to work for?

        We need all our youth from Bor including those that are driving tanks in Abyei right now, whose their children and parents are being slaughter and sold. This youth is from Bor first before they are from S. Sudan. This has to happen, otherwise life for our community will be meaningless on earth. Towns cannot accommodate all villagers. The murle needs to be defeated and faced seriously with destruction in order to stop this barabaric act that is not found anywhere in the world except in Jonglei.

        folks, don’t wait for this Salva’s gov’t to release you from JIU and your other units to give you a green light. We just have to mobilize ourselves and do what Lou Nuer did to Murle. This is the only medicine they need. All else will fail.

        To those who worry about the ICC. Does the ICC endorse killing and selling of other human beings? In their countries, what do they do to people who kill other people?

        War between us and the Murle must begin as soon as the Arabs are out of the south.

        What will prevent this war is when the Murle as a community sit down and stop all their people from raiding our elderly and children when our youth is busy in S. Sudan army.

        The superpower of Dinkas and their strategy MONJANG/DINKA cannot be deceived easily otherwise we would have not reached this golden opportunity. Hope and willingness can bring you bright future. A superpower is a state with a dominant position in the international system which has the ability to influence events and its own interests and project power on a worldwide scale to protect those interests. A superpower is traditionally considered to be one step higher than a great power
        To all southerners, this is a time to thank the great leadership of Dinka for this freedom of today. May God bless south Sudan and their brave leader

As our scratch the number of people who voted for Unity today only 72 people from our community voted for Unity, that is three times the total number of Dinka Bor who voted for Unity.

      Dear readers,

      Wow! What a God’s prophet called Ngundeng! Thanks God for revealing our future destiny through his prophet Ngundeng.

      Hello, readers, before I explain to you some of the Ngundeng’s predictions which have resulted to Bashir’s official acceptance of independence, I want to inform you that I am a Christian, believing in Jesus Christ and his father, Jehovah.

      I cannot accept somebody who thinks of Ngundeng as God, but I will agree with the one that calls him simply a God’s prophet.

      I don’t believe in Ngundeng as a God, but I believe that he is God’s prophet because his words have become true and being fulfilled.

      Several major events he prophesied have come true in front of our very own eyes. A Satan cannot predict people of God’s destiny like us in South Sudan if God himself did not give him his vision as his prophet to foretell them on his behalf.

      I don’t worship Moses, or Ezekiel or Elijah because I know that they are just God’s prophets for Israelis just like Ngundeng for God’s people in the South. So, I worship God, not his prophets like Ngundeng or Moses.

      But I believe in their messages because God gave the messages to them. This is why Ngundeng in his songs he said that he is a “Prophet with a vision given to him by God,” when he said in Nuer language “Ghok mi ca kam neeni wang ni Deng.” And he continued to say that “waar kene cang nene ke ken dial,”, or “I see through both night and day.” He might mean that he could see both “revealed and hidden issues.”

      Now back to the topic, if you can all refer to the messages or predictions about Ngundeng which our brother Gatkuoth Deng posted on this website and on Southsudannation.com in 2008/9, you will exactly find the current situation of 2011 being a fulfillment of Ngundeng’s prediction as was in his article about three years ago.

      In that article by Gatkuoth Deng, entitled ‘Ngundeng’s predictions’, Gatkuoth said that Ngundeng said there will be time when the leaders of the North (Rol Mac) will be calm and confine themselves to the North during the request of our land (referendum).

      He said in Nuer, “Rol mac be biet piny ba gueth de luoc e deng, thiece yang cia mi jiak, bi ghok marol a luoc, tare tet kun dong bia te kuee te ke tot ti koang ke lia, ca ben han deng luak jala ke mac mi riaw how.”

      In English he said, “Jalaba will be calm and confine itself, God will overcome his power (arrogance). If I ask for my land is not bad, the leaders of the North will summit, lift up your hands, may be you will have survivors. I have come, the God of the land, holding a weapon that lightens the skies.”

      Well, if you liken that prediction to the surprising positive behavior of northern leaders while we are asking for our land (referendum), it exactly depicts the prediction of Ngundeng. The North has been calm while we carried out the referendum. It has also accepted the results. That is surprising to many people around the world!!!

      And not only had the north, even in the South the new behavior of people during the referendum surprised the whole world. God controlled the behavior of the people as they voted for that ONE HAND (separation) as predicted by Ngundeng.

      Even cattle raiders that used to defy authorities in the South suddenly became calm and stopped cattle raiding during the God’s fulfillment of his prediction. It was a God’s final decision making to free his people through the referendum and he controlled the hearts of the people in the South and the hearts of the northern leaders in the North.

      Remember that in the Bible, God directly intervened by sanctioning Pharaoh’s Egypt through many miraculous events including turning water red and killing the first born of Egyptians until Pharoah backed down and allowed the children of Israel to leave Egypt to the Promised Land.

      Now our God has been using the international community such as the Americans to sanction Bashir’s northern government in order to allow the referendum to take place and accept the vote for secession. Bashir was known for defying American sanctions for very long time since 1997, but now because of God’s prediction, Bashir has surprisingly complied dramatically! What a prediction!

      But that is not all!

      What next?

      Well, before you call me a prophet of doom, I want to tell you that it is not over yet. The final war is coming!
      The present Pharoah (Bashir) has told Moses (Salva Kiir), take your people to the Promised Land.

      Well, the same Pharoah or another sudden new Pharoah may change his mind and want to stop our match as we finally cross the Red Sea to the Promised Land in July (day of declaration of independence).

      Something may happen between now and July 9!

      And that will bring the final war. A brief but terrible war that will defeat the northern army and control of our borders as predicted by Ngundeng. And that will mark the official birth of the new nation in the South.

      Ngundeng said the North will surprisingly start that war. I don’t know how, when and why it will occur, but definitely according to Ngundeng’s prophesies, it will!!!

      What’s wrong with you people—the Dinka and the Nuer. You people are becoming mad.I’m tired of hearing your crazy gods,the so called nyundeng.Why do you divert people from reading constructive comments? That’s why the Bari are saying you should transfer your capital city and call it what every you want. All the time Dinka Vs Nuer on useless issues.By the way,if you want an inclusive South Sudan that respects all tribes,we don’t like any bulshit gods...we don’t believe in gods,but in one God!

    Please read this history about Profit Ngundeng and how did she got here to our world! Please don’t let God get mad with us again. She is not a human beng, she is Satan! How can human being changed to be a Fish, Snake, Cannibal, and Human being? This power is not for human being,it’s Satan power.

    God have mercy on your people who usuall for about you worship devils,your a creator of all but Nyajok Ngundeng is Satan family who came out from Nile river.

    For those who are still using Ngundeng ideologically, 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?

      Dinka-Nuer,

      Were you born to lie?

      Ngundeng’s father was Bong and his mother called Nyayiel.

      Read the book called "The Nuer Prophet" written by Western Writers. You will see that his birth story is compared to that of Isaac between Abraham and Sarah.

      Nyayiel was barren and gave birth to Ngundeng when she was very old. That is why he is called Ngun-deng, or God’s Gift.

      Don’t depend on lying, otherwise your culture and dignity is at stake here. You will get addicted to lying and become a useless untruthworthy person.

As a former citizen of Sudan, I acknowledge this positive part of you. Continue with the same spirit to bring a lasting peace in Darfur region, and then I will be able to back you up against the ICC charges.

    Congratulation my people, thats what we have been fighting for, for last 50 years we thanks all our leaders for the good jobs they did for us. As I said now we finish with Jalaba but the difficult part of being country started from here. Unity among ourselves is the key to build strong nation in Africa. Our leaders have to be careful now on, for last six years we have been united for one gaol only which was to get our country and thats why we voted 99%. Here come question GOSS is going to continue with corruption, tribalism as they have been doing for last sex years? Thats why I said we need new faces to lead us to build the best country in Africa, thats why I will run for presidential office at next election to bring that change our new country may need, but if they stick in office by power I will be the first one will start pointing my finger. South Sudan is not going to be about Nuer or Dinka, it is going to be about us southerners nobody is going to say I am Dinka or Nuer my tribe was born to rule is no going to happen in South Sudan and if it will happen every tribe in south have all right to fight for their land at that time I will fight for my grandfather kingdom and tribe which is in other countries too. I am prince myself my people are not going to sit watching you guys fighting over power and which tribe is the best to lead the country, You guys take it as a warning like joke.
    We don’t want another war to start in south Sudan it will not be good for new country. What we need is unity and development creating jobs for everyone good school system take care of our children because they are the future of our country thats why I said under my leadership I will put very strong law to protect our women and children, no man will ever put his hand on child or woman our women is going to be everything they are the one brought us this freedom 60% of 90% was women. Vote for me at next election see what kind of change I am going to bring into our country South Sudan.

      Dear readers,

      Wow! What a God’s prophet called Ngundeng! Thanks God for revealing our future destiny through his prophet Ngundeng.

      Hello, readers, before I explain to you some of the Ngundeng’s predictions which have resulted to Bashir’s official acceptance of independence, I want to inform you that I am a Christian, believing in Jesus Christ and his father, Jehovah.

      I cannot accept somebody who thinks of Ngundeng as God, but I will agree with the one that calls him simply a God’s prophet.

      I don’t believe in Ngundeng as a God, but I believe that he is God’s prophet because his words have become true and being fulfilled.

      Several major events he prophesied have come true in front of our very own eyes. A Satan cannot predict people of God’s destiny like us in South Sudan if God himself did not give him his vision as his prophet to foretell them on his behalf.

      I don’t worship Moses, or Ezekiel or Elijah because I know that they are just God’s prophets for Israelis just like Ngundeng for God’s people in the South. So, I worship God, not his prophets like Ngundeng or Moses.

      But I believe in their messages because God gave the messages to them. This is why Ngundeng in his songs he said that he is a “Prophet with a vision given to him by God,” when he said in Nuer language “Ghok mi ca kam neeni wang ni Deng.” And he continued to say that “waar kene cang nene ke ken dial,”, or “I see through both night and day.” He might mean that he could see both “revealed and hidden issues.”

      Now back to the topic, if you can all refer to the messages or predictions about Ngundeng which our brother Gatkuoth Deng posted on this website and on Southsudannation.com in 2008/9, you will exactly find the current situation of 2011 being a fulfillment of Ngundeng’s prediction as was in his article about three years ago.

      In that article by Gatkuoth Deng, entitled ‘Ngundeng’s predictions’, Gatkuoth said that Ngundeng said there will be time when the leaders of the North (Rol Mac) will be calm and confine themselves to the North during the request of our land (referendum).

      He said in Nuer, “Rol mac be biet piny ba gueth de luoc e deng, thiece yang cia mi jiak, bi ghok marol a luoc, tare tet kun dong bia te kuee te ke tot ti koang ke lia, ca ben han deng luak jala ke mac mi riaw how.”

      In English he said, “Jalaba will be calm and confine itself, God will overcome his power (arrogance). If I ask for my land is not bad, the leaders of the North will summit, lift up your hands, may be you will have survivors. I have come, the God of the land, holding a weapon that lightens the skies.”

      Well, if you liken that prediction to the surprising positive behavior of northern leaders while we are asking for our land (referendum), it exactly depicts the prediction of Ngundeng. The North has been calm while we carried out the referendum. It has also accepted the results. That is surprising to many people around the world!!!

      And not only had the north, even in the South the new behavior of people during the referendum surprised the whole world. God controlled the behavior of the people as they voted for that ONE HAND (separation) as predicted by Ngundeng.

      Even cattle raiders that used to defy authorities in the South suddenly became calm and stopped cattle raiding during the God’s fulfillment of his prediction. It was a God’s final decision making to free his people through the referendum and he controlled the hearts of the people in the South and the hearts of the northern leaders in the North.

      Remember that in the Bible, God directly intervened by sanctioning Pharaoh’s Egypt through many miraculous events including turning water red and killing the first born of Egyptians until Pharoah backed down and allowed the children of Israel to leave Egypt to the Promised Land.

      Now our God has been using the international community such as the Americans to sanction Bashir’s northern government in order to allow the referendum to take place and accept the vote for secession. Bashir was known for defying American sanctions for very long time since 1997, but now because of God’s prediction, Bashir has surprisingly complied dramatically! What a prediction!

      But that is not all!

      What next?

      Well, before you call me a prophet of doom, I want to tell you that it is not over yet. The final war is coming!
      The present Pharoah (Bashir) has told Moses (Salva Kiir), take your people to the Promised Land.

      Well, the same Pharoah or another sudden new Pharoah may change his mind and want to stop our match as we finally cross the Red Sea to the Promised Land in July (day of declaration of independence).

      Something may happen between now and July 9!

      And that will bring the final war. A brief but terrible war that will defeat the northern army and control of our borders as predicted by Ngundeng. And that will mark the official birth of the new nation in the South.

      Ngundeng said the North will surprisingly start that war. I don’t know how, when and why it will occur, but definitely according to Ngundeng’s prophesies, it will!!!

    Good question! Riek Machar is a combination of Moses, Joshua, David and Solomon (in the Bible).

    All I can say is "FUCK Nyadeng" this is bullshit prophesy. Why are the Dinkas and Nuer debating? None of you is better than the other. I think sometimes Nuer can understand a lot more than a Dinka person. A Dinka men’s intellectual capacity is less than 20% to a normal person. Nevertheless for Nuer men it’s less than 35% this is because of nomadic lifestyle and because they have seen a different society first world. If I’m a Dinka person I would visit my GP to test my brain otherwise the world is not the place I suppose to be. Go back to evolution period.
