NCP members in Warrap defect to South Sudan ruling party


By Ngor Arol Garang

August 13, 2009 (KADUGLI) – Some one hundred and twenty members of National Congress Party from Warrap State defected from the National Congress Party (NCP) and joined the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Abur Chol, a NCP chairperson and Lino Majok Achien, Secretary for popular and syndicate organization, confirmed their resignation from NCP to SPLM state secretariats.

"The NCP office is closed down because we have gone away with all members of the National Congress Party in the State. No one is left. All our youth and women have come with us," said Abur.

Abur Chol, while addressing reporters at a press conference in Kuajok town, state capital of Warrap, called upon NCP supporters across the country to quickly join the SPLM before elections saying "National Congress Party is sick and its recovery is next to impossible."

The group accused NCP of having neglected Southern Sector saying NCP head office in Khartoum does not consider Southerners as equal members of the same political party hence demoralized most members from the South.

Similarly, Lino Majok, a secretary for syndicate organization added that his defection into SPLM as former member of NCP was necessitated by continuous NCP defiance and denial acts toward southern population in term of development, stability and lack of CPA implementation.

"Today South is engaged in tribal war supported by NCP and as a southerner, I do not have a reason to support a party against the interest of my own people," he said.

The groups expressed willingness to loyally serve and support SPLM with their acquired skills from NCP to moderate and modernize SPLM from the grass root to the higher level.

They also regretted their 9 years serving as NCP members with hope for change after having abandoned what they described as their poor beloved South for no good reasons.

At the same press conference, Alessio Makuc Makuc, Warrap State SPLM Secretary general, welcomed the joining group and argued them to use the same capability they used to manage NCP at the state level as members of SPLM.

    Good decision guys.

    It is good to serve your own people rahter than serving your enemy. However, bear in your minds that you are going to face the same marginalization in the SPLM party very soon as you will be called the pro-NCP guys.SPLM is not ready to welcome the lost sheep after the death of the late hero Garang.

    Good luck

      I am wondering if thee people are defecting from NCP because they believed in SPLM!!
      I can imagine that NCP did not give them what they wanted and therefore they want positions in SPLM!

      People like these should be tested for five years! The example is Warrap state governor who was NCP, became SPLM and overnight was made a governor!

      Warrap is one of the worst states that do not have services, a lot of tribal killings and hunger!! The governor is an Ex NCP member!!!!!!

      What are we doing??????????

        Mass Deflection in Warrap

        What a news ! …..A mass deflection from the NCP to the SPLM in Warrap! Well as elections are approaching some politicians are beginning to realize that the ground they are standing on is not any more what it used to be.

        No southerner should be impressed by mass movement from the NCP to the SPLM and visa versa. These deflectors do not really need to boast of ever taking any challenges by what they did after all both parties are for the unity of the Sudan.

        Both parties are awash with public money.

        Both parties have failed to implement the CPA.

        The new SPLM arrivals should have known that it was two successive SPLM ministers of finance in the GoSS who played with the money meant for food which would have alleviated the current hunger in the whole of the Great Bahar Ghazel.

        And blaming the NCP for the tribal fights sounds cheap bait but unfortunately the SPLM seems to have taken it.

        If NCP was fanning the tribal fights, then it is non but this very group who have now deflected ( a full house) to the SPLM.

        They allowed themselves to be used by the enemy for over 9 years as quoted by one of them.

        Anyway SPLM is a party of defectors and counter-defectors. But quality wise you may not be the right people who can revitalize the dying SPLM.

        I understand that at this time around the SPLM may be hunger for membership but it should be careful of infiltrtors which are in piles and piles throughout the party’s history.

        Well, let us welcoming these 120 members of National Congress Party to the SPLM Party in the Warrap State. First of all I would like to thanks them for the choices that, they made even though, we do not real know the reason for what make them so long not joining the SPLM Party since the peace agreement was signed in four years ago. There is a good example as it has been mention on the above that, the governor of Warrap himself; he was a member of National Congress Party or in other word the Party of killing innocent people in the Sudan. To speak for myself, I do blame those who support Omar Hassan al Bashir and I hate to mention the Southerners Sudanese bribes who always follow where to get money instead, they should stand up for the rights of the Sudanese people. To Change the dictator government system does not need you to think about being a rich person nor creating too many Parties are not necessarily before the Regime has not gone for good.

        Omar Hassan al Bashir is close to get fire if I for gotten to say, he will probably be capture like his friend MR, Saddam Hussein of Iraq Regime.Please read this story of Rats, when the wild-fire cach the grass, they groups of Rats some they try to hiding in the hold but later when the tongue of fire became hoter while it goes inside the hold at the same time, those Rats who ran in the hold will still dies any way and the rest of Rats groups will just running until when they got tired then, the fire will still catching them and in contrast to this story, I think MR, Omar Hassan al Bashir and his Idiots National Congress Party, both they run like those Rats that, I had mentions on the above and for sure, Omar al Bashir and his National Congress Party will be captures like the time MR, Saddam Hussein was being captured with his all Party members and they will faces fire for their crimes that they are all committed in term of genocide which is still ongoing now.

        To those who are still waiting for the help of dictatorship and Military man,Omar Hassan al Bashir, you are absolutely stupid and very dump minding people, I mean there is no other important than standing up strongly for the rights of your people rather than your interest of individualization attitudes and gainable bribes throughout will not help you at this time. You are absoltely on the wrong side at the wrong time.Look this Omar al Bashir will be gone like MR, Saddam Hussein of Iraq Regime, for more than 30 years, he was ruling Iraq Country in the Middle East nation. MR, Saddam Hussein he looked like Allah to the people of the Middle East nations, but his rudeness to the world and in the Middle East nations also let him gone with his all Party members. Perhaps, people in the Sudan,maybe they see Omar al Bashir as Allah of Northern Sudanese Arab Idiots unforunately, Omar al Bashir is not a God or Allah to us and he will go with his all National Congress Party members in the short period of time.

        To the SPLM Party, the rest of the world in the global are looking to see the SPLM commitment in a democarcy system either in the Southern Sudan nor the whole Sudan level. There is no doubt that, a lot of Southern Sudanese people are always complaining about the way you guys handling your citizens and it assume to be very unfriendly, corruption, misbehavior of the GOSS government and the failure to enforcement the Law in order to protecting civilians particular; in the Southern Sudan and Darfurian if the role of SPLA/SPLM was to bring the new rule and new policy in the Sudan. I would real recommanding the SPLM to make adjustment and to show the real democarcy system. Do not block others opinions because the reason why there were many problems in the Sudan was the matter of different views among Sudanese which were been blocked by the ruler of Khartoum government.

          Well let welcome our former enermies to the party that they denied for more than twenty years.I know that salva kiir will employ them as soon as possible because they are from his state. He always reacted quickly to ex-enemies of SPLM by employing them and leave ordinary members unemploy. May be because he was one time an enemy to SPLM party.But i urge southern sudan authirties to remember the say, which said "do not keep the weampons near the man, who was one time became mad because he might gone mad any time". Therefore,this men and women need to be on probation for some time before they are delegated to do any government jobs.

            I agree with you completely, there are many formers SPLM/A now a days and they have no job at all. Some of them they are educated however, it is very hard for me to tell why these ordinary SPLA people does not have a job. In addition to that, we have what come to be the nick name as a Lost Boys / Lost Grils of the Sudan, most of them now they got any kinds of Degrees from the abroad world, but later when they decide to go back to Southern Sudan so that, they can help GOSS then, the SPLM official in Juba do not give them a job until again, they decides to choose to come back to the abroad nations and that shown the SPLM officials in GOSS of Juba are for getting those supporting them and standing with them from the abroad.

            Personal I think the SPLM of Juba in GOSS do not understand that, without Southern Sudanese from abroadly world then, the peace agreement wouldn’t be possible, but because of ours, which we have conveying a lot of messages to the U.S Officials including myself; I wrote some letters and that is why our problems in the Sudan have been understood by the world and the U.S particular and I would guess that, the SPLM Party will have a good road to take the lead in the Sudan. I got four friends of mind went in there in Warrap State and they actually never got any job yet for almost a year between Juba and the Warrap State looking for job and they never got it, because there is no body has pay attention to them even people seem to be rude to them simply, because those leading now are less educated people and so these friends of mind yes, they decide again to come back to where they were living as an immigrants in the abroad nation. Any way we need to change ruler Khartoum government first before our problem to be solve and I was just interesting to read your comment and I do belief your statement was absolutely true, the ordinary people who have been in the SPLA/SPLM for 20 years fighting don’t get a job for example MR, Aleu Ayieny Aleu, he is the guy who is real a fighter man for many years but look now, he was been fire just for the word he said, meanwhile those who were defected from the SPLM/SPLA are getting high position, those who have came recent like Tor Deng Mawien has been giving job as a governor of Warrap State and I think we all know them one by one and name by names so there no need for me to names them you guys smarter than I do.

    Hi flogs,

    The time for the rats, while cats and Fax’s of our South Sudan are coming over in this planet. They began now to come out from the bush and in the holes to live with us in difficult times to face all these challenges together as brothers and sisters. I person have seen those guys before in Warrap State. These guys Abur Chol and Lino Majok are very smart in term of polities but I think they were waiting for their big money to be pay from NCP and then exit from that evil Party.

    Remember our late Southern father Dr John Garang use to says take your money from Arab but don’t forget your country or land of South Sudan. Bring them for our development if you don’t buy us for them for and kills us for them. If you don’t take that example you will not enjoy them and die before you enjoy your life with them. In 2011 the judgments day will come and be witness by who ever be still in this world as a Southerner Sudanese.

    The SPLM is blessing Party because we all know the difficulties and bad memories that we had come out from them. Whether you believe me or not wait and see. Mr. Akol should start to join his party before late and bark for his right with Southern Sudanese politicians. He may get a support from Southerners and show his vision to our people rather than sending people with money and guns to kill us and buy poor people with wrong vision and ideology.

    God will do his part and we should also try our best too. The governor of Warrap State is a failing governor and we need anyone in Warrap to help our people in this mess.

    Peace with you guys,

    welcome But:

    Your coming is good but you need to do more for Southerners to believe you, and not you to get more from southerners to keep you stay with SPLM. You are like the one who give out the food to unneeded people, while you denied them at the time of hunger. During the war was a good time for you to stand with SPLM/A and not now to tell us the brutality of Khartoum regime. May God bless your coming home.

        In our Indigenous Africa Live life, we cry when we lost a person among us. They are welcome back in the community of the people. But they have to show their loyalty to our people first for some years. Person who has been brian scan by Arab to murder their bothers/sisters before should be watch carefully.

        untill they got a full integration into Africa Idealogy. Not to letting them influence people into Arab culture. Also they have get used to being bribed by money to kill their brothers and betray them to death. We knew some people who used to point at people back and later your door get knock by Arab NIF security Squads. Anyhow they are welcome.

        We will get something from them if they farmer and work. And most great benefeit from their children.
        Our population was diminished,they will increase our number. We in needs of more people.

I really welcome you guys to join the SPlm political party we need you to build the south sudan by using skills and knowledge that each and every one has but do n’t follow Dr.Lam ’s foot step of getting in and out.

    “In addition, the SPLM /SPLA had never been smaller since the famous man call Mr Brown of nineties joined SPLA”

    Well, people may say that lames can’t climb but in realties they can climb on ripen trees. Even though we’ve seen thorn scattered on all climbable braches, still there are rats who will enforce us to speed up while long thorns and dotted sight can do any or possible harm to us all. In realties it should be us the innocent people who have never defected from the current Gov to preach these Lads joining procedure and of course these guys are welcome. There is no need for them to be yarn at, they are our blood, brothers and sisters. They never knew what lead them to defect from very cultured Gov where you are not train to kill your people. Here in South, our lost people have more opportunities not like Northern where Omar Bashir had right to defence his Islamic citizens using the same tribe against. Gentlemen, your voices have been heard since the war began in 1980s and today Sudan is changing into different sections, South is heading on its own way and North is doing the same. So if your are sort of rats who can’t estimate the future, therefore you are delaying yourself. Indeed, we can’t afford to cope up with the Gov that has never listen to our voices since our love ones have been force to their very long term goals which trembled me to call it a death. I think, we are both being traumatise by the war even though some of us lives at the arm of Bashir or lives in the bush as they call it. So it is time for us to say that Omar Bashir has a right to be a leader of his own people and the minority can live by their own rules. To other rats, there is no more blame games here, We have seen and felt Omar leadership whether advantage or had disadvantages on us. I urge you not to mention him in this forum otherwise you are risking your people’s lives meanwhile 2011 is close. Let’s reap off these innocents people through our attractions and management that are deploying in our land. They have their own choices to make whether happy about North Gov policies or unhappy. Here I’ll not give a single chance to any rat who tries to defect from our current Gov. You don’t like the death that we have faced so many years do you?

      Congratulation for SPLM , but it seem to me as many extremist in SPLM comments their issues here that SPLM closed the door for northern people to join your party , what I understand that SPLM is for Southern people ,to take (money) stolen by Arab ,this term Arab is not exited in Sudan and Dr. ??? ??? didn’t not say that , we have read all his books , he have some agricultural research to develop southern , and he always mention that UK is responsible for making Africa very hard to life for us .
      What should we say to our children people in north are thieve. Tell me: what have stolen from your family, I will give permission to any one accuse me without evidence, and any member of any party will be responsible from any accusations he submitted it’s better to investigate for such comment done by such extremist.

        I think you understand your own mistakes and there is no need to ask people about what you have done. Since John Mou has stated in his comments you will be more convinced of where you’ve gone wrong. Even though he mentioned some overlap lines you will fully understand what it means to be a dumb rat living in the middle of African Saharan thief’s arms. Look rat if you keep calling us extremist leaving your overdue corruption that has been shaping our peoples’ lives so tiny and therefore end in diseases, hunger and graves. I’m saying that rats like you who can’t spelt John Garang names in Arabic even if you’ve learnt Arabic so long are not welcome to South. Except if you have clear reasons of joining SPLM like these lads who have changed their mind earlier before my security sections reach their territories. So, rat if you come with those complicated spy policies, therefore you will be gone in few days to come. Don’t beg of what you have done wrong, people are watching all the mess you have committed in all States. If you are not fulfilled of the innocent civilians’ blood shed, don’t hesitate to challenge me rather than winging that you are not welcome or all rubbish things in your tiny mind! Stay alert for more warnings rat!!!

    Dear all,

    I have been reading your comments since yesterday. However, brothers and sisters, do not forget that this time no one will ever take a goat, cow or food from
    his/her fellow countryman and go unquestioned.

    The Sudanese people had really suffered in the hands of the so called NCP and her collaborator the SPLM during the 21 years of civil war.

    Your reactions towards the new comers to the SPLM Party are mostly negative as some call them converts, some call them enemies and so on. This makes what I wrote yesterday to become true, the SPLM is not ready to welcome any new member from any other political party in the south leave alone the NCP.

    The SPLM and the NCP are two faces of the same coin as you may know their games during the war and after, they were moving from Khartoum to the bush and vice versa. Riek Machar, Taban Deng and Lam Akol are good examples. You can see kind villas being built these days by both the NCP and the SPLM officials while the people who help the reach those positions are dying of hunger.

    Earlier when the Sudanese people realised that the NCP has become a danger to the future of Sudan and the Sudanese citizens, they pretended to have quareled and divide themselves into two known as NCP and PCP. In the same way, the SPLM realizing that the south Sudanese people are not happy with for the last three years of the CPA, they have now divided themselves into two also known as the SPLM and the SPLM-DC so as not to lose any single person in the south unswallowed.

    Prove me wrong please.

      John Mou,

      If people can appreciate the truth, then they should appreciate what you commented as 100% truth. You are a true son who got critical analysis of the events.

      I thank God that, the South Sudan still got true patriotes like you John, good comments, and may God be with you.
