July 30, 2016 (JUBA) - The South Sudanese government has agreed to dispatch a high level delegation, led by its first vice president, Taban Deng Gai to the United Nations headquarters in New York as part of efforts to rally global community support.

“The objective of this mission is to mobilize the international support for implementation of the peace agreement and explain to the leaders of Intergovernmental authorities on development (IGAD) member countries why there were changes within the SPLM-IO leadership,” vice president, James Wani Igga told reporters Friday.

“This is a very important mission,” added the vice president.

Gai, who succeeded the armed opposition (SPLM-IO) chairman Riek Machar, was sworn-in early this week, a move the former rebel leader described as being “illegal”.

"President Salva Kiir wants the country’s first vice-president to explain to the world the recent political changes in nation," Igga told reporters in the capital, Juba.

The South Sudanese leader, he said, told the armed opposition leaders in the capital, Juba it was their role to make the region understand why Machar was replaced.

“Taban and some members of the team which will select by the President to go to the neighboring countries, including Khartoum as number one, so that we put clearly to them the situation,” explained Igga.

The team will reportedly also tour neighboring countries to advocate for regional support for the peace agreement.

Igga further said President Kiir agreed to accelerate discussions on how to improve security in the country, revive the economy and repatriate internally displaced persons.

    "President Kiir agreed to accelerate discussions on how to improve security in the country, revive the economy and repatriate internally displaced persons."

    All three are possible if Kiir follows the Peace Agreement.
    But Kiir prefers civil war to peace
    He try to kill the Vice President in December 2103, again in July 2016.
    So Security economy and IDPs all lost.

      Mr. Point, you’re out of points. Government never tried to kill Machar. He tried to overthrow the government. I was inside Juba during both incidents. Therefore, no one planned to kill him. The fighting was imitated by the soldiers in 2016. Please reexamine the facts before you spread non facts.

        Yaaa Taban, is it what u went really to fight Nuer for Dinka like that? Now they know no one in the world trusted them. So they decided to use their boy. Ur chance is..

    Where is the honesty of President KIIR in the peace agreement? He signed the agreement with reservations as if the terms of the agreement were not from the citizens. He then planned to kill it by trying to assassinate the principal signatory of the peace agreement by sending all the available to destroy, kill those in Riek’s home and his soldiers. Then who can believe Kiir is for peace?

      To Kiir the peace agreement should be a path to DEATH to federalism, death to all forms of freedom namely press, speech and association , death to democracy. Military deecres are the order of the Day. South Sudan is not that simple for his actions. There will be resistance for his evil doings.

          Riek failed completely as a man that so strenuously promulgated his *pretended* belief in democratic ideals and institutional reforms for political gain. Riek did not introduce greater transparency and accountability in his movement; he didn’t create any democratic institutions; he had in fact committed egregious human rights abuses on a wide scale...

            Riek’s own colleagues in the Nasir faction condemned him for concentrating power in his own hands — authoritarianism. Among these detractors was Joseph Oduho, Lam Akol, Arok Thon Arok, Nyuon Bany, Kerubino Kuanyin and many others. In fact, prior to Joseph Oduho‘s death, the respected elder lambasted the Nasir faction for lacking democratic institutions...

                Riek didn’t even have any institutions in his movement and was criticized for incompetence, mismanagement and authoritarianism, and that that was only after a couple of years. His movement collapsed in just a couple of years because he didn’t know how to manage a movement; all the political big wigs left him in disgust.

                  Whatever the cosmetic or purely theoretical aspects of SPLM/A administration, it can be contrasted with SPLA-United/SSIM, where there were no similar civil administrative structures and where much of what was announced in the form of internal organisation existed on paper only.

                    Riek laughably dismissed Dr. Lam Akol from their Khartoum supported ’movement’ for... collaborating with the government. LOL! In reaction to this laughable dismissal, Dr. Akol issued and circulated a document in which he demonstrated that he was not the only one guilty of working with the enemy. In the document, Dr. Akol used a clever euphemism to make his point:

                      "Who could be more royal in the king’s court than the King himself!". A clear reference to the fact that Riek, as the chairman of Nasir was fully aware of their ’movement’s collaboration with Khartoum and in fact directed these operations. It’s clear that Riek is a liar; he thought he could accuse Lam Akol of collaborating with Khartoum when he was the one that was organizing it. LOL!

                        Riek is of the opinion that the Nuer can demographically expand onto the lands of other tribes and when they become the majority, they can then claim that area as their own, as part of a befuddled and twisted understanding of a ’human right’. That’s dangerous.

                          Contrary to what they may want us to believe, Salva Kiir and Riek Machar are not diametrically opposed; they are in fact two sides of the same coin when it comes to furthering the interests of their respective tribes. The essential difference is that Salva Kiir unreservedly demonstrates that he is a tribal chauvinist but Riek tries to disguise his well documented chauvinistic credentials...

                            Riek is of the opinion that it’s perfectly suitable for the Nuer to expand demographically onto the lands of other tribes and regards it as some sort of ’right’. He claims that tribal demographic expansion onto the lands of other tribes can be ’peaceful’ and that this is historically how the Nuer have expanded their territories...

                              Some quotations from Riek:

                              There is something intriguing about the Nuer culture. Had it not been for the British, the whole of Southern Sudan and beyond would have become Nuer. Some cultures are strong, others are not. The Nuer are expanding not by force, but through peaceful exchanges with their neighbours. It is a human right for Nuer immigrants to ask for their political recognition.

                                What is wrong if they ask to administer their own affairs? Let others also expand demographically and do like the Nuer. Why are the Anyuak not many? A lot of Nuer die in all kinds of wars, but they are still many. Whose problem is this Nuer expansion? Do the Nuer consider it as a problem? Not really. I do not consider it so either! Anyway, even if I want to stop them expanding, I cannot.

Riek [and other] condemn high ranking Dinka officials and Generals for occupying plots of land in Equatoria while they steal entire counties from the Anyuak and Burun...

That is the real Riek. The Riek that pretends to be a patriot and a democrat is a front; a hoax carefully crafted to serve his political ends.

              Mr Khent,

              Do not dwell in history so much. Politics is organic. It is subject to changes. if politics is all about ideas in which a change for the betterment of Citizen then Riek has spelled out that. Before 2013 catastrophe, Riek just asked for democracy to thrive. What happened there after was war initiated by Dinka imperialists due to fear of the death of status quo.

                They used mercenaries to exterminate citizens using banned cluster bombs. Imagine a leader who kills citizens for selfish, tribal interests. No non Dinka person can accept the evil behaviour that is imposing suffering upon us with our own weapons. These weapons are obtained in the name of South Sudan and not Dinka nation.

                            This is what Riek said to a journalist-historian in the wake of the 1991 split:

                            He discounted tribalism as “from a different age”, though boasted that he has “not seen a Nuer who doesn’t support me.” In the same breath, he added, “if there is a tribal element, the Nuer would destroy all the Dinka.” (Me Against My Brother: At War in Somalia, Sudan and Rwanda, Scott Peterson)

You either agree that our lives [South Sudanese] all have equal value or you don’t, in which case the war will rage on. People that lost relatives to Salva Kiir in 2013 quite rightfully do not recognize Salva Kiir as their President and will not accept him in that position. The same is true for people that lost relatives to Riek in 1991.

The United States, Israel, Russia, China and India are just a small handful of the many Nations that don’t subscribe to the ban on cluster munitions. It’s a convention that countries are able to voluntarily subscribe to. Do you think Khartoum didn’t use cluster bombs on us!? They did!

Why did you work with them? Why did you make them so strong that they were able to acquire new planes and artillery systems? They created artificial famines that killed 100, 000 Dinka civilians in 1998 alone.

                                It is totally irrelevant or anything to justify current killings all over the country harbored by Jieng Council of Elders in collaboration with Salva Kiir to advance what is a tribal agenda.
                                Politics changes and Dr Riek has been democratically a threat to Salva Kiir’s throw.

                        Mr Khent,

                        if we dwell on that what would we have done with the killing of Didinga in Chukudum in the eighties? CPA would have not materialised. How about the Dinka killing Mundari in Terekeka by slaughtering even pregnant women after cutting their wombs open? How about the uprooting of the groundnuts of Balannda Bagari in Namatina after killing men and raping their wives infront of them?

                          The evil you people have brought to innocent South Sudanese can not be measured. You took agony to areas that have not experienced it with no invitation. You still continue to kill, rape, imprison citizens under you so called sovereignty. Who gave you authority to do that? You people murderers who should not be empowered to lead a nation state.

                          I am well aware of the terrible human rights violations that various tribes in South Sudan endured and have read up extensively on this. A great book to reference is ’Civilian Devastation: Abuses by All Parties in the War in Southern Sudan’...

                                      In the early days of the split, in order to secure popular support against Garang, the Nasir faction deliberately propagated the false allegation that Garang diverted relief supplies to Bor.

Your motivations in 91 were all about Nuer Nationalism and Riek’s quest for power as part of your tribal superstitions.

                                  The same old jienge rhetoric devoid of any substance. It’s not the quantity of what you write, rather the quality. Come up with concrete suggestions for a way forward. Kiir thinks he can make peace with friends rather than with enemies. The more he alienates Riak, the more it gets intricate the worse it gets. No Riak no peace, period.

                                    I’m light years above you. You’re like an animal compared to me. Now, I want the Dinka to remove Salva Kiir and for the Nuer to remove Riek from his position so that we can move forward. That formulation you provided also has an equally grim inverse. Riek vying for the Presidency = war.

                                      I thought it was Dr. Garang who would think he were light years ahead in terms of intelligent political discourse. That again some jienge scoundrel thinks that way is entirely new. Perhaps you’re of mixed parentage and not the typical and classical naked jienge who has more emotions than reason.

                                        I can assure you that the Dinka do not lack confidence - a feature of our culture that can be described as a double-edged sword. Dr. John Garang was incredibly intelligent, strategic, visionary and charismatic but he can be eclipsed by the next generation of leaders.

The best the jienges have now is Kiir who fits well with our thinking of a what a jienge should look like and how they behave. Really semi illiterate, thoughtless, unpredictable, irrational, uncouth and so much savagery.

        Why don’t you ask your oh so innocent Nuer people to hand back Akobo (an area as large as Lebanon) to the Anyuak? Ask the innocent Nuer to hand over the similarly sized Longochuk County back to the Burun. They stole these areas in 1983 with the support of the Sudanese government.

          The Nuer killed Chol Odio, the Anyuak paramount chief in 2013. Are you really ignorant of the fact that the Mor Lou continue to encroach upon the lands of the Anuak? The Mor Lou routinely intimidate and kill the Anyuak in Akobo in order to displace them from their ancestral lands.

            The people who have stolen the lands of the Anyuak and Burun are the same people that now pretend to be righteous by condemning a small group of Dinkas for stealing plots of land in Equatoria, while entire Nuer sub-sections take entire payams and counties the size of countries like Lebanon from smaller tribes.
