July 5, 2017 (JUBA) – South Sudanese from the Greater Equatoria region have expressed concerns after it emerged that youth from Jonglei state allegedly warned their citizens working in the region.

The alleged warning is contained in a letter addressed to the United Nations and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) operating in Jonglei.

In a joint statement, leaders from Eastern, Central and Western Equatoria states, who live in the United State urged international NGOs, U.N agencies and community-based organisations to evacuate staffs, particularly Equatorians on ground.

The evacuation, they said, should take place within 72 hours.

Sudan Tribune could not, however, verify the authenticity of the letter.

14 ARRESTED

Police on Tuesday arrested 14 youth in Jonglei state after the Bor Youth Association (BYA) called for evacuation of people of Equatoria who are working with U.N agencies and international NGOs in response to alleged killings targeting members of Dinka ethnic group living in Equatoria region.

The group, in the letter, said that they did not want any Equatorian working in their area within 72 hours or face consequences in revenge for alleged death of members of the Dinka community killed on Juba-Yei, Juba- Bor and Juba-Nimule roads.

Jonglei state officials, however, distanced themselves from the youth’s letter.

        Since you Jienge youth have drawn the line in the sand, then I suggest you better come and exhume John Garang’s bones or whatever reminds that are buried in his grave and take it to Bor or anywhere in Jiengeland. Because, as it’s a symbol of oppression, it will be targeted and destroyed like any dictator’s tomb or statue.

        If you don’t want MTNs to be killed along Equatorian roads, then, go home.

          Dont speak loud, what we want, is jienges MUST understand that whether in 1, 5, 10, 50 years, we Equatorians want them OUT peacefully or otherwise. We cant babysit them all the time. YES WE CAN AS EQAUTORIANS. We DONT Need them. They have NO value addition to us, except chaos, hopelessness and anarchy.

          Eyez, you people are taking hatred to a different level. John Garang is the reason you came to South Sudan after Arabs chased you to Uganda and you want his remains to be removed? Be a man, go and move it yourself and see if you will write on Sudantribune again. Those youths were turned off by your type preaching hatred instead of peace among South Sudanese. Arabs ran everything and Rujal mafi wer

            You sound so emotional, therefore, it’s unwise to reason with a Jienge like you, I think you should revisit President M7’s speech about the liberation of South Sudan. So it’s on this note that, I suggest you speak for yourself and if Garang is your God, he is not mine.

        Eastern,
        With due respect to Cmrd Garang, but these Bor jienges MUST prepare to come and exhume Garang´s bones and bring them home to Jonglei. We are better off. Those from Aweil coiuld also take along with them the bones of Lual Diing (Baba Africa) buried in Simba Square near the army hqs.

      Newsudan,
      This is the BEST News ever. It should have happened ages ago. Equatorians MUST quit all jiengelands and return home. by the same means, especially jienge Bor MUST vacate Nimule immediately. Our boys MUST be on the alert, that any jienge BOR trespassing Equatoria will be allowed to get out, those refusing MUST be hunted down. It is NOW show time. God Bless Equatoria. KOKORA RELOADED

    The Idea is entirely by infuriated youth, and I hope you have also listened to the reaction of the state government, however, people like Eyez are really the big Deadshits, so, so stupid that he deserves no life.calling the presence of Dr.Garang’s tomb a symbol of oppression, you really don’t know what you are doing event when you and your stinking mother are using Garang’s head in one way/another

      Catch-22,
      Watch out your jienge vulgarity. Those are words of bastards. If you were not savages, you could have buried Garang in your own backyard in Twic east. Why bring him to Juba, as if he did not have ancestral lands of his forefathers? But you have no culture of burying and honoring your dead. Just shut up and rewind, ya aryan jienge, wisik!

        Dear foolish Equatorian, I belief you are right because Bor Youth were not suppose to give warning but to start killing like what your Doggyknobbers did, so incite all that you are doing but remember there will be no UN Camps for Bastards like Jubaone, go a head do it and we shall see who will be the cowboy, if you are troubled by only our words what about the action. I know some seek refugee...aa

          Catch-22,
          Jienges are starving, begging and idling in Equatoria. Equatorians don’t and won’t live in jiengelands. So it’s up to you to choose where you want to go. For now it is MTN hunting time. Kokora or death 💀.

      Catch-22,

      Who asked for Garang’s head to appear on the legal tender? Who asked that Garang be burried in Juba? Look here, the intention by dinka youth to see Equatorians be stopped from working with NGOs in their villages is not new. Last year there was same bubble. Let’s call spade a spade, let Equatorians be expelled and the same measure should be applied to dinka here in Equatoria.

      Catch 22
      If all Equatorian heavyweights from Aggrey Jaden to Eliaba Surur are all buried in their villages not in Juba and they are the Sons of the soil of Equatoria, then who is Garang or Baba Africa to us.

      We are tired of MTN squatters swarming like pests all over our homeland, some even claim to be guarding the bones of their so called heroes.
      Go home and take your dead with you, idiots.

        Catch 22
        You reason like a primary school pupil, because, firstly, apart from your Jienge community, no one else really adores the idea that every denomination of our currency bares Garang’s face. Secondly, there a lot of things that will be subjected to discussion in the future and the legal tender is one of them.

        It’s a win-win situation for us if our Equatorians come home and you goons go back

          Eastern, Eyes and all Equatorians in the cyber war,
          Greetings to you in the name of our Equatoria Corps 1955. First, STOP associating with any Jienges cos they are evil. We must mobilize our people in and out, that the SS is no longer viable. We want State of Equatoria or Republic of Equatoria. Yes we can. Good news soon. The jienges of Aweil and Warrap are now killing themselves around Juba.

    Targeting and killing innocent men, women and children on public roads is easy for anyone, group to do or carry out. It’s also very easy for anyone, group to avenge not only in South Sudan towns or UN camps, but inside Uganda, Congo, Central African, anywhere. We must do what we need to do but also be aware of consequence.

      Just as any dinka can do to any Equatorians working in your villages...

        I don’t know anyone from Equatoria being targeted in my village or anywhere I know. All i’m saying it is not difficult for a Dinka to find and kill innocent Bari or vis versa. Those doing it will not be the one to finish it.

    Criminals cannot lead the way for rational people like of us except the morons pretending to be intellectuals but not different from villagers. These purported Dinka Youth members but all Dinka Bor youth or the Great Bor people everywhere threatened or hated Equatorians. Read the good reactions of the Jonglei State government officials especially the deputy governor to this youth thing.

    The Acting governor in Jonglei State has condamned this youth misbehavior and some of them have been arrested. Nothing is going to happen to the Equatorian doing business or working as humanitarian workers in Jonglei. This is a mere threat and a real man/woman of substance should not be scared only by the rumors of an hyena in an area.

    Innocent Dinka women, children, and elderly are being killed everyday in Equatoria by criminals but that doesn’t evoke hasty generalized action on all Equatorians. Some are innocent in fact the majority don’t what is happening in their land.Let us all condemn and punish wherever they rear their ugly heads like what the Jonglei State government is doing currently.

    repondre message

  • 6 July 16:24, by Lenin Bull

    The Equatorians should not over-react or panick due to this empty tin noises in Bor. Be more wise and know your interests best and allow the government both at Jonglei State and Juba levels to handle this threat. It will die at that level and nothing more. Anyway let the chicken hearted run away if they wish.

      Lenin Bull,
      To fight a bushfires you need fire 🔥. God forbid. These jienge Bors must think well, this time we WILL not tolerate any squatters in Equatoria. Nimule is our target. Jienges must start getting it b4 it gets nastier. They are surrounded now: Nuers, Murles, Mundaris where else? Our boys are waiting patiently for them to start.
