May 20, 2017 (JUBA) - Members of South Sudan’s armed opposition faction (SPLM-IO) have dismissed as untrue reports that their leader Riek Machar was replaced with his wife.

Social media was awash with news that Angelina Teny had allegedly been appointed acting chairperson of the armed opposition movement.

But Machar’s press secretary Lam Kuei Lam denied the veracity of the said document, describing it as “fake and forgery”.

He called on all supporters, members of the movement and South Sudanese not to believe the "fake" document claiming Angelina was acting chairperson of SPLM-IO.

“The document being circulated on social media about the appointment of Madam Angelina Jany Teny, as acting chairperson of the movement (SPLM-IO) under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny, is a fake document,” Kuei wrote on Facebook.

The document, rebel officials say, could have been circulated by government officials. Such a document is similar to the ones supporters of the government of President Salva Kiir have always circulated, purporting them to have been done by Machar.

Political analysts have always interpreted the motive for the circulation of faked documents in the name of Machar as part of the political campaign using propaganda to foment discontent within the leadership, with view aimed at encouraging split and disintegration into ethnic and family factions unable to challenge the government.

Such political machinations are designed to weaken the support base of Machar as the leader of the movement and to portray him as someone selfish and pursuing personal interest in the name of advocating for change and democracy while his actions in appointments shows the opposite.

Do you know that your comments are adding fuel to the conflict we are already have in our country? God was not blind when created us in South Sudan, he has reasons to put us together to coexist with one another. lets us view our selves as brothers and sisters for the betterment of our future.

              Pls note: There’s a difference between a jienge and a dinka. A jienge is that primitive and savage from the luak. A dinka is one that has come to Juba and has been civilized. You see them wearing funny blazers that don’t fit in that hot Juba weather. South South is still jienge whom we have yet to civilize. You see, he can also use the internet, don’t know how?

During our liberation, SPLA was called a Dinka Movement by the same people who are opening their dirty mouths to say many things about wanting to rule the country. These are the same people who formed militias to fight along side with Fake Arabs.

            Nyam nyam is a Topotha word for "eat eat". Apparently naked and starving jienges mounted the little energy to flee to Equatoria for food. The only word these emaciated scoundrels could say is "nyam nyam". In Gudele, most skeleton -like jienges would beg for food and say "nyannyam" meaning eat, eat. South South is no different. From luak to Juba and "nyam nyam" hungry dirty nyor!

              Stop lying like a small boy. How could Dinka beg Nyam-Nyam where they control everything in the country. Even before South Sudan was freed, the richest tribes are very a few, Dinka is one of them. No single Nyam-Nyam tribe can be even so close to Dinka tribe. Nyam-Nyam is written in many books, do you know that? Enjoy your monkey meat, oh how about rats? Oh, how about snake? Even dogs to

Just see the hundreds of hungry jienges chased away from Yei pitifully begging for food with starving and malnourished children in their laps. They are an Equatorian, they run 🏃 and beg "nyam nyam- eat eat". Come to Juba and see 4 yourself. Join them?

                    What has this tribal supremacy produced? This Dinka "rule" you so fondly speak of has been an absolute and unmitigated disaster - a disaster that has brought this non-functioning, joke of a ’country’ on the brink of fragmentation. The country will not survive ten more years of Dinka rule let alone another "200000 years".

                        How did this cycle of violence begin? Who is responsible for sparking it? Was it really necessary for Dinka militiamen to go on a killing spree in 2013 against Nuer civilians? Why wasn’t such force and violence exclusively reserved for opposing soldiers? Why has this "National" army consistently demonstrated partiality that clearly and invariably benefits the Dinka?

                          Why has Juba supported systematic Dinka land theft in Greater Upper Nile against the Shilluk and the Maban? The Dinka are certainly not angels that have been subject to unprovoked attacks. Remove the tribal arrogance. Stop the bullying. Allow for the formation of an inclusive government that represents every tribe and treats them all equally, and you won’t have to worry about those roadside ambush

The culture of the Dinka is not suited for the 21st century and must be replaced. The culture is truly sick. Most people in this Dinka society are greedy, selfish, ignorant, short-sighted, impulsive violent and unreasonable. And the worst of all? No sense of responsibility.

                                  No evidence of a coup has been provided thus far. Fighting broke out in the barracks after Nuer soldiers became suspicious after they were told to disarm while the Dinka soldiers were to remain armed. The whole thing was badly managed. I don’t support any of those Twic-east politicians. Mabior is an idiot for joining Riek the traitor.

                                      in the UNIMISS compound in Juba. So Mr. Khent, l am not always scapegoating others for nothing. what are we going to gain by accusing people who are not in any way trying to destroy our country & kill our people simply because they want to impose their puppet that they can micro-manage in to our country? Mr. Khent, the US, the UK & the UN don’t even hid their regime change intention these days.

                                  Mr. Khent, you are the one who give us an example on how the representative of all the South Sudanese ethnic should look like. Yes, l know there has never ever been any govt on earth that doesn’t has some sections of communities who are worse off let alone this current South Sudan’s govt. Probably you can just spit out Mr. Khent & let the South Sudanese people know that your Twic East is not>>>

                                    properly represented in the current government & this will create yet another lots of other issues if it has to be corrected now. And l think, many Twic East community are not that overly bitter of this since they know there is always another day.

                                      You’re not listening at all, mate. When I point out that the ’government’ is not representative, I’m not advocating for an increase in Twic-east representatives. The people of Twic-east are Dinka, and so it would be perfectly reasonable for Twic-east to miss out on the Federal level in light of the fact that entire tribes (not small sections) are not at all represented in ’government’.

              Your endless and bogus writings are themselves a manifestation of desperation and hopelessness. It is bickering at its highest an attempt to convince intellectuals where only lazy thinkers would dig in. Just go clean your jienge backward, keep cows and drink milk. Let Equatorians do the thinking. You may fight if you wish, that’s what idiots do easily.

        Don’t write so much . You’re wasting my time as well as yours. Most of your arguments are just stupid. Of course I denounce violence. I denounce the violence of December 2013 when a fake coup was the excuse to massacre civilians in juba. Do you denounce the actions of Kiir and Malong murder gangs?

    Where in the world can you replaced a man with his wife? Where an IO is heading now? Mr. President date her soon so that she comes back to Juba and let the rebels die alone. Why an IO always keeps denying the fact that they’re at finish up line. Let confused an elements remained the bushes. We the government, we’re done with you rebels.

Angelina Teny is now in Australia running from here to there, mobilizing an Australian government to support her in the process. Is it still a fake news to you? Dhuor-gon is out of an equation! Lets now talk on how will Angelina bring those starved rebels back to Juba. So, that we the government arrest you al

          Cool down Bush Natives! Just get focused on how to consolidate your Jienge Republic and let Angelina do her work. Her husband Riak is "parked" in S. Africa and is not your jienge issue. Ok? Why keep complaining when you eat, steal, rape and kill? What else must the jienge do to be contented?

            you are war monger in the west by always abuse Jieng but I think you might be mad about Jieng as you focused on what they do while overseeing your issues. I believes abusive comments that you always used on internet here will not solve your problems with Jieng, if you want go to where Jieng are and fight them physical rather than wasting time on something that you cannot overcome.

            You foolishly misquoted this phrase and took it out of context. It had absolutely no relevance to the topic and shows how desperately you want to articulate your idiocy as an intellectual. Just leap as far as you can and you realize you’re that little luak jienge trying to be intelligent.

              There is no embarrassment here for you. We are all human being. In education, learning starts the time we born and continues until the day we die. Also in Education, there is no complete learning. This will teach you very dear lesson not to jump to something you don’t know. "legally blind". You learned by now.

                "Any person with vision that cannot be corrected to better than 20/200 in the best eye, or who has 20 degrees (diameter) or less of visual field remaining, is considered legally blind"

        If Dr.Riak is blind and you are not worry of him why paying 2.5 millions to South African monrhly to keep him away? If Nyam Nyam don’t fight, then who is fighting who in Yei yesterday and today? I will be waiting for your response.

          Show me the evidences you have that South Sudan is paying South Africa 2.5 millions (by the way, is this 2.5 millions, USD or South Sudanese pound?).Who will waste money for a dying person like Riek? No fighting in Yei at all, a few fake generals from Equatoria ran to refugee Camps in Uganda. Do your really think Nyam-Nyam can fight like human being?

            Your step father calls himself the jienge of Yeo cos he could freely access supplies of nyam nyam or free food which he couldn’t get in his jienge homeland. That’s over now. He lied that he would transfer his command has to Yei but has long tucked his tail between his legs. You’ve been to Yei for some nyam nyam free food lately?

              Stop fabricating falsehoods. "Nyam-Nyam" is a pejorative used by both the Dinka and the Nuer against Equatorians, so I reject your etymological explanation.

                That’s up to you to reject and if that’s what jienges would adopt as a corollary that’s their business. What I know is that nyam nyam is a Topotha word that means eat eat. Undeniably, nothing has attracted the wider jienge community to Equatoria other than in search for food and security. Here comes the association.
