Dinka elders minimise U.S. sanctions on South Sudan


February 3, 2018 (JUBA)- A prominent member of the Jieng (Dinka) council of elders Saturday has downplayed the impact of the weapons embargo imposed by the American administration on South Sudan.

Aldo Ajou Deng Akuey, a leading member of the council and a legislator at the council of states, the upper house of the lawmaking body in the country, said the new measure would not end the war.

“The measure is unlikely to end the war. This war is not controlled or fueled by the Government. The only known rebel group is the SPLM IO (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition). But the rest of militias or rebels are on their own”, Akuey wrote on his Facebook page in a reaction to the ban

The legislator claimed U.S. President Donald Trump has lost global influence to make an impact, pointing to the American local politics which appears to have a leading space in foreign policy under administration.

“Also, President Donald J Trump is not any longer a leader of the world as assumed after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. It is very clear that the United States cannot and will never conclude peace in Africa or anywhere in the world," he said.

"The American national interests override any countries’ interest. Now the America First sloganeering and protectionist monger cannot bother people outside the United States ’first’"

"He should be told to confine his rhetoric to "America First," he stressed.

His comments followed a decision of the United States to ban export weapons to South Sudan in a bid to put pressure on the South Sudanese warring parties three days before the resumption of the IGAD-mediated peace revitalization process on 5 February 2018.

The South Sudanese government, however, seems unaffected by this symbolic embargo because it used to get weapons from China, Ukraine, and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

The United States, according to the statement released by the State Department, is appalled by the continuing violence in South Sudan that has created one of Africa’s worst humanitarian crises.”

Washington further expressed hopes that the United Nations, IGAD, Canada, EU, China and TROIKA countries may follow suit”, the statement points out.

    First and foremost, the word warring parties is a inciting violence against South Sudanese government itself. When U.N., TROIKA and IGAD used word "warring parties" what does it mean exactly? To me, it mean South Sudan government is equal with rebels, according to the terms, which is completely delusional and stupid attempt by various organizations including U.N. and United States. In such regard,

      The outsiders have an influence in the current conflict,as we’re speaking U.N. have supplied rebels since day one and still continues at the meaning time, thinking that they’re smart enough to get away with it. When have Donald Trump became a President of the world while he’s already sick and calling himself a President of America first? To you rebels, Donald Trump sanction isn’t anything to us he

        re. Trump already failed in American politics, wouldn’t even make America great again, let alone foreign affairs, he have nothing to offer there in America. So, let rebels not be blind fools by outsiders. Those who’re running their Satan mouthpiece overseas or West have their own unique agendas in our country. Therefore, it will be up to you rebels to accept out peaceful call or seek asylums!

          I thought this jienge oldie and NCP hireling would give us concrete reasons why the US arms embargo wouldn’t affect their Jienge regime. He’s trying to be academic and analytical, but is too old and stupid. Ofcourse, lesser intelligent idiots like kiirminal would bite into this nonsense. Fact is, they are in deep shit 💩.

              Idiots call for peace but can act,, whereas intelligent people show peace that is substantial and touchable. It’s like some lunatic calling people to come for a good lunch, yet he has no food. That is jienge thrash! Just empty bullshit. Make peace in your luaks first, of that functions, call 📞 the rest, ya Aryan jienge.

                Uganda is where you belonging, don’t tell me ran there because of South Sudan conflict. Keep hunting for rats and monkeys, our Luaks better than stinky monkey poop. We liberated this country and we’re protecting it from useless slaves who’re battling to sell it 24/7. You’re lucky that Kiir is a President at the mean time!

        Bush Natives and John akeen Kara,

        Your worthless old timer Aldou Anjou Deng plus many of his tribal JCE thugs worked in the ’80s and ’90s with jellabas of North Sudan.They spent most of their lives lavishing with the arabs and doing politics acutely beneficial for their own stomachs.Even few years before the signing of CPA 2005 some of these useless war mongering JCE,Ambrose Riiny Thiik included

      Kush Natives,

      Are you people serious? Aldo’s statement is a cover for shame, failure in national management. South Sudan is not a Dinka kingdom. This country is a multi ethnic nation that requires the political view of all to be taken on board. Please stop being insensitive to national issues.

        Fact 1: US must act swiftly and effectively to curtail the increasing influence of such short-legged communists from China and Russia who contributed nothing during the war of independence.
        Fact 2: Kiirminal is being influenced by jellaba hirelings like Aldo Ajo with massive support from Egypt. Israel and US must ensure jellaba influence is contained by supporting the"rebels".

          Fact 3: The visit of the Moroccan King Hassan IV was a serious diplomatic offensive to increasing Arab influence in SS. The Kiirminal is soft target and "voting animal" especially when voting for/against specific resolutions at UN.
          Fact 4: Thousands of Darfuri jihadists/JEM are already engaged in fighting alongside SPLAnyors.
          Fact 5: The only cheap and effective way is arms support for the "rebels

            In fact support of freedom fighters with weaponry is itself an end game of those who think they are born to rule. It is what people should lobby for to counter the flow of arms from Chinese and East European countries to Mathiang Anyor. Kenya and Uganda should be warned to stop supporting Kiir in order for murderers,land grabbers and rapists are defeated.

              Enjoy the party 💃 as long as it lasts, even the pharaohs died out and "jiengeism" will die 💀 out. Many have fled to Sudan, Uganda, Kenya surviving on criminal activities. That is jienge kingdom.

      9 They have killed a lot of Japanese. 10 They have killed a lot of Africans with Ebola and HIV and now they are going after North koreans and Iran’s to get them kill. My question is why they never receive sanctions and arms embargo? I think all of this countries must stop selling their products to Americans and they need to stop giving them respect

      Contrary to the governement of south sudan, America cares about the people of South Sudan so stop bringing nonsense. The government needs to stop this kiir/Machar self made war. Africans like to turn blame when confronted. Around 8 million people are dying of hunger, no school, no security do tell me what needs to be fone.

        It’s easier to convince a Taliban on certain issues, it’s even harder to convince a jienge on everything. He is encapsulated in his own jienge world. Anything non-jienge doesn’t appeal to him. Get in touch with such, it turns nasty. Best is avoid and shun him and you are at peace.

      Most animals go on all "fours", have tails or horns and have no sense of guilt or remorse. Like a cow that pisses and shits, the cow 🐮 doesn’t feel ashamed. It is brazenly foolish and has to be led, herded and at the end slaughtered. The animals you alluded are not very different either.

    The Dinka (Jieng) council of elders is far more decisive and has ability to lead South Sudan far more than incompetent Kiir, Wani along with new arrival opportunist Tabang Deng Gai. We can argue but truth lies where majority support stands still.
