Saving Nuer lives: A state of emergency!!

By Luk Kuth Dak

Nuer peoples’ lives and future are in crisis. And cities and towns, especially those populated by Nuer are bearing the brunt of the devastation. Everyone knows this. The United Nations (UN) knows this. The United States of America (USA) knows this. The Great Britain (GB), the Europeans Union (EU) and the African Union (AU) know this, too. Everyone knows that Salva Kiir is committing an ethnic cleansing against innocent Nuer civilians in his quest to eliminate the entire population and take over their oil-rich land. Everyone agrees that Kiir removable from power is not only desperately needed, but critical to both ending the Nuer suffering and bringing about peace and stability to South Sudan and the region at large.

Yet, no one wants to do what It takes to make the changes necessary. No one seems willing to stop the genocide and the ethnic cleansing against innocent Nuer people. Bluntly stated, the world has failed to value their lives. That they cannot rely on the UN to protect them.

But for those who do not know the Nuer history, I have this to say to you: In a normal circumistance, Nuer would be the last people to beg for help, for in fact, history tells us that they have never, ever been defeated by any other tribe in Sudan/ South Sudan, including Dinka (Jieeng). Matter of fact, the opposite is the truth here. The tables are only turned over now because they are fighting against Dinka and Uganda combined.

Today, Dinka automatically assume that the Nuer are up to no good. The assumptions cannot lead to a peaceful co-existence. Now, I am not getting ahead of myself, but I predict that sooner than later the Nuer will come to realize they will be better off in a country of their own.

South Sudan is big enough.

    Look, my friend Luk, all the views you have just expressed here or elsewhere are absolutely not of Nuer nation, they will not be shared by the majority of Nuer if there ones at all to do so apart from Riek and Gatdet Dak. I am responding to this article of your just like the previous ones because I love seeing both lies, facts and make myself acquaintance to both sides of the Coin.

      You and I know very well that Jaang and Nuer Nations are brothers, they share the history and needed each other in a fight against foreign invaders and of course they have fiercely fought each other over grassing Lands and Water, but they do not harbour a wish to eliminate one or another. By the way, you are begging for foreign help and your recent writings prove that. Good luck buddy.

    Mr. Luk,
    The war is not between Dinka and Nuer but between SPLM(Mainstream) and SPLM-IO. It is very unfortunate that you are inciting hatred among communities.
