May 11, 2018 (JUBA) – A South Sudanese diplomat has dismissed as untrue reports alleging he has joined the armed opposition movement led by the former first vice-president, Riek Machar.

“The rebels of Riek Machar should not waste their time creating fake news simply because I, Gordon Buay, am part and parcel of the Government of South Sudan. If you see me, then, you should know that you have seen President Kiir. Can Jesus Christ resign from the Kingdom of God and then join Lucifer?” said Gordon Buay, South Sudan’s deputy head of mission to United States.

According to Buay, joining the Machar-led rebel faction was like “somebody suggesting that Jesus Christ has defected to Lucifer”

“If it is impossible for Jesus Christ to defect to Lucifer, it is impossible for Gordon Buay to defect to a prisoner in South Sudan”, he added.

In May last year, Buay who previously served a rebel spokesperson, was elevated to the deputy head of South Sudan’s mission in the US.

Prior to his appointment, Buay served as a member of the integration committee for an alliance of armed groups that responded to a presidential amnesty in 2012 after agreeing to lay down their arms and abandon rebellion in several parts of the country, including Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei states.

He also served the secretary-general of the South Sudan Democratic Front (SSDF) and chairman of its Canadian branch from 2002 to 2007, joining the National Census Commission in 2008.

Born on 28 November 1975, Buay obtained law degree at Canada’s Carleton University in 2004 and a doctorate at Saskatchewan College of Law in 2011.

    Look at this fool says. Does he really read a Holy Bible and understand it. Who is murdering the citizens of South Sudan? Recall 2013 for a second!! Who drove citizens to neighbouring countries? It is the other way around. Kiir is more satanic than lucifer and so is Gordon Buay who is for crumbs of a loaf from Kiir. He has blood of South Sudanese in his hands.

      There are no Nuers who have power in the bushes to kill people. White Army is a history movement of our time. Try to find the best way to contact Kiir or you will be left out alone.

        South South
        We still have a handful of good and true-to-heart Nuers and NOT nyagats who are easily coerced by jienges. As of now, the state coffers have been emptied by jienges, so much chaos, anarchy and lawlessness. The kiirminal is hiring-and-firing in a desperate attempt to make things work. He forgets: from nothing comes nothing. That will NOT change till Dr. Riak comes to clean this shit.

    Games, You’re fool. Who told you that white army is existing? You are only dreaming, white army was completely destroyed by the mighty Mathiang Anyor. The few remanent escape the war to the camps in East Africa. Now is the chance to beg for the mercy. I am telling you.

    Well then, if you have destroyed the White army.. Why oilfields in Unity State still unopened? Why the country economy is still deterioration? Why most of the roads are still not accessible across the country? Why Many counties in the Greatest Upper Nile and Equatorians regions are not controlled by the government? If you are another idiot like South Shit
