Lou Nuer say no organized militia behind Jonglei’s attack


September 25, 2009 (JUBA) — The Lou Nuer Youth today denied that recent attack on Dinka Duk in Jonglei state had been carried out by organized militia saying armed civilians were behind it. They also accused the southern Sudan army of taking Dink’s side

Armed civilians and some women near the market area of the southern Sudanese village of Duk-Padiet which suffered recent attack by Lou Nuer, Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2009 (Timothy Mckulka-UNMIS)

Armed men from the Lou Nuer attacked the positions of southern Sudan army and police in the locality killing a significant number of regular troops in addition to the civilians. The attack has left over 160 people dead and more than 80 wounded according to the latest figure released by authorities in Juba on Friday.

Southern Sudan officials were alarmed by the escalation of violence in Jonglei. Following a visit to the affected area on Monday, the southern Sudan interior minister, Jonglei governor and UN coordinator for the semi-autonomous region agreed they attack had been directed to the government forces and institutions. They all also spoke about a structured and heavily armed militia.

In a strong statement released in Juba on Friday the Lou Nuer Youth Association (LNYA) which advocates the cause of the tribe, said the attack on Duk Padiet last Sunday had been carried by "ordinary civilians" in retaliation to previous attacks they suffered.

The tribal group condemned statements by southern Sudan officials who described the attackers as militia saying "the Greater Akobo is in full control of the SPLA forces and if there are militias in the area we believe their first attack would have been on the SPLA forces at Renk the way to Malakal."

They also said they had been preaching for southern Sudan unity and peaceful coexistence but warned they would now take the side of their tribe accusing the southern Sudan officials of favoring the Dinka ethnic group.

"This time we are going to write differently because the Jonglei State Government (JSG) and the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) have taken side with the Dinka Bor, and we also have right to take side with our community in whatever cost. "

The Lou Nuer association also said opposed to a probable decision to disarm them first in a disarmament campaign that the government plans to implement in the restive state of Jonglei.

"The LNYA would like to make it clear to the JSG and the GoSS under the 1st Lt. General Salva Kiir Mayardiit that if the Lou-Nuer is going to be disarmed first as we have heard then please expect a full resistance from our civilians."

The Lou Nuer had been attacked in the past by their neighbors in the past following after their disarmament in 2006. They accused Juba of retrieving their arms while Dinka and Murle tribes kept their weapons at hand.

The two latest attacks by Lou Nuer on Dinka ethnic group in Twic East and Duk Padiet pushed some southern Sudan officials to point blaming finger to their peace partner, National Congress Party and also speak about the emergence of organized militias supported by Khartoum.

On the other hand, there are people, particularly from Nuer ethnic group who say the causes of the surge of violence are local and can be explained by the control of land, water and pasturages as well as cattle. They also stress that the Lou Nuer attacks on Twic and Duk are retaliatory.

On Sunday’s attack on Duk County they say it was to revenge an attack on Lou Nuer around Poktap in January 2009 that had been carried out by armed men hailing from Holl and Nyarweng. They accuse the local authorities of mistreating them and speak about looting and killing of their people by the regular forces in the area.

To explain their attack on Twic East, another Dinka locality in Jonglei, where over 40 people were killed on August 28, they accuse the Twic of looting their cows after their disarmament in January 2006.

Lou Nuer Counties of Ayod, Uror and Nyirol signed a peace accord with Dinka of Greater Bor Counties of Duk and Twic East on May 14, 2009 at John Garang Institute of Science and Technology in Bor Town.

Village chiefs who attended the peace conference are also accused of catalyzing violence. Paramount chiefs complained during peace negotiation that Government failed to arrest chiefs who encourage conflicts.

May’s deal is the fourth signed between Lou Nuer and Jieng Bor (Dinka Bor) since the 1991 split which set Jonglei’s major tribes against each other. The other three dishonoured agreements already were made in 1994, 2004 and 2007 in Poktap, Duk County Headquarters.

    This is nothing more than a honest appeal by the Lou-Nuer youth. The GOSS and SPLA should take it into consideration. Favoring one community against the other is irresponsible behavior by any government. This is why the SPLM has been accusing the NCP of favoring Messriya tribe against Ngok-Dinka in Abyei. Should the SPLM copy the same in the South. All armed civilians must be disarmed. You have seen the picture of Dinka of Duk Padiet holding arms. These are the same kind of civilians from Lou-Nuer who attacked Duk Padiet. They should be treated the same. The attacks are retaliatory as honestly explained by the Lou-Nuer youth. This is throughout South Sudan. Disarm all the communities in Jonglei, Warrap, Lakes, Upper Nile, etc.

    If the Lou-Nuer warriors came in what looked like military formations, this should not be taken as a proof that they were militias. The Nuer traditionally form themselves village by village, section by section when carrying out attacks similar to formation by the military. These to them makes their attack successful and avoid negligence of carrying the wounded by non-colleagues or relatives. We should fairly condemn all the civilian armed conflicts equally in the South and deal with them equally. No favoritism!

      The Nuer’s supreme self-confidence was NEVER defeated by the Great Britain war with the Nuers in 1930s, Turks, Arabs or others, leave alone the coward Dinkas. The Nuers defeated them.
      The easiest thing would have been a genuine dailogue among the tribes in South Sudan. The Lou Nuer Youth just presented the soundest reasons of why they retaliated against the Dinka-Bor.
      Dinkas brothers simply cannot judge their judgement true. Now it is pretty clear beyond any reasonable doubt that SPLA is Dinka-Bor and Dinka-Bor is SPLA. This is at least what Majak Agot, Gier Chuang, Kuol Manyang & Salva Kiir think.

      Unless the Nuer SPLA members guard their Nuer Lou border side and the Dinka SPLA members guard their side of the border, this deployment is ill-judged. It can’t be one way, but two- way street. Otherwise, the Dinka civilian army will revenge while their Dinka SPLA memebers cheer them on against the lou Nuer civilians.

      I am from Jikany Nuer and my own full-blooded uncle, a popular Chief in the area was killed by Lou Nuer in 2006 from Nuerland’s most Eastern frontier. I want to tell the Dinka leaders that their illegal operation against the Lou Nuer section is an attack against all Nuers. I would never be a self-hating Nuer just because the Lou Nuers killed my uncle. It is Nuer’s internal affairs and there are mechanisms to follow on that through Nuer traditional blood-settlement. This time, we will make sure the whole Eastern Nuer/Jikany Nuer is mobilized against Dinka’s unfair move. We can be very sure of that.

      Salva Kiir, Majak Agot, Gier Chuang & Kuol Mangang all Dinkas broke South Sudan & Sudan’s Interim Constitution by deploying the SPLA military against the Nuer civilians. This is reminiscence of 1980s when we fought the whole SPLA in Manjangdit, Lit Nyaruach, Bargeer, Tharyeer & other Nuerland locations. Keribino kuanyin, Nyuon Bany, Francis Ngor carried out those raids in 1980s. But the Greater Nuer overcame it. They survived.

      Lt.General Gathoth Mai is an educated man unlike Guandit Nyuon Bany. Nyoun was used by garang against his own Nuer people. I hope Uncle Gathoth Mai will be very careful this time around. It is not 1980s. This is 2009, and the Nuer Nation should not feel threatened by the Dinkas fishy intelligence work to wipe off the Nuers through SPLA forces.

        It is useless to post your comment to this site because your words sound futile and ridiculous.

        Gatwech & Thieling,

        I’m very proud of you two guys when you always stand your ground unlike Mr. Luk Dak whose father was enslaved by Mighty Nuer Warriors in 1800s. Who in East Africa can face/confront the Mighty Nuer Warriors in war fields, Tigrayan of Mekel in Ethiopia? Of course, not. May be Zuulu of South Africa? I doubt it.

        Who are these coward Jaang/Slaves before the Mighty Nuer Warriors in term of warfare? Zero. With no doubt, Nuer of Genesis/Home land (Bentiu) can destroy/burn down to ash the whole BEG region, but from promise land (Lou Nuer & Jikany Nuer) cannot only silence these coward Jaang of greater Upper Nile, but eliminate them to the last person, meanwhile Gaawar Nuer, Thiang Nuer and Lak Nuer can just watch the the dirty game.

        If only the sub-clan of Jikany Nuer call Gaajaak who challenged the SPLA forces for 4 years, why not Mighy Lou Nuer Warriors? It is Naath/Nuer willing not to destroy South Sudan let alone these coward Jaang/Slaves. Lou Nuer and Jikany Warriors/Jiech-in-Bor are more than ready to confront the SPLA forces together this time and it will be worst than we have seen back 1980s.

        No peace until the Coward Jaang/Slaves and Murle are disarmed first or else.

          Dear Kim Deng,

          Thanks! I am a Nuer Youth and never betray the Nuers. Simple reason. The Nuers have no false dignity of themselves. Therefore, Nuer’s reputation and dignity is timeless. Nothing can change that. These are are the evidences: Your philosophy, politics, prejudices are yours in NUERLAND. There are so many things I can say about the Nuer democratic behaviors or notion of democractic, egalitarian society. No one dictates anything on you.

          I believe our uncle, Luk knows this as well. I am a plain talker. I never like what our uncle Luk said on this board on his writing, especially about the Nuers. I saw him in person once before, but never talk to him.

          But he is way older, older than us. I try to see how we can talk to him personally without violating the Nuer-age system. Otherwise, we may have to face this through this media. I am on a special assignment project. I may be free and write my own full article free of violating the current project in the near future(God Willing)!

          Gatwech & you are cool brothers!
          I sensed an authentic democratic Nuer attitude in you. Kim, Keep up the good job, man! The Hot-Button issue framing Nuers Civilians as militia may turn ugly unless handle well by our Dinkas brothers.

            that appeal which you are talking about is poorly constructed even these ugly lou-nuer will not never accept that they were the one who attacked that village (duk padiet) let them bring the one who armed them.Don’t do that, I would want you to keep on preaching your victory over Dinka Bor not just to plead by tell us that you were just civilians.Civilians, where do the civilians get that heavy machine guns from? if it is not from arabs whom you always used as your shield then why didn’t you revenged at the time where you were attacked? useless.

            I want to dispute your excuse that SPLA has taken side with Dinka, no it is not true, in my perspective we are all citizens of south Sudan either collaborators or liberators you deserve fair treatment, the issue is all about the rescue of situation not that nuer can overcome Dinka Bor as many of you think, I hope Dink Bor can do better than that.Just ask yourself, if Dinka can fight hundred wars at one time, from north, from south,eastern Equartoria and many parts of sudan that did not know the sweetness of independence then what is nuer to Dinka?

          I don’t like your comments you two Gatwench and Thieling, No body is really fighting Lou Nuer because it will be A sin killing innocent animals for nothing. You talking about Might Nuer Warriors In entire East Africa just Indicates that you are human without brains, Jaang never take war against Nuer remember that because there will be NO what so call "Nuer" in whole South Sudan, PLEASE don’t play with fire there is no benefits in war. Dinka are majority remember that, if they take Action against Nuer, they can wipe-out Nuer in just a day but that’s not the case there are some Nuer who deserves leaving and freedom that’s why we keep calm and leave it to GOSS to solve it as Government. Ask yourself How many states are occupied by Dinka? and how many Dinka Solidiers in SPLA? and you know what we do you DUMB ASS, sorry for swearing you would not even understand it since YOU’RE Just a vulture that FLY to get some faeces without Thinking, Great "Dinka BI MOR NGOTH" before you preach something you will Never achieve, YOU FAGOT CANT’

          I think you should call your ugly faces lou-nuer ’cowards’. If they were real warriors, they should have faced Dinka Bor face to face rather than attacking while in the church, that’s sign od cowardness, women method of dogging violence and real warfare. Ask your friends boardering Bahr El Ghazal, why are they not attacking it? They know very well how bitter it is to step in BEG region.

          If Nuers are really men, step your feet in Warrap and watch the consequences of your coming. I believe it will be worst than Katiba Niel action in 1985. I believe you know it.

        My worry is not to die, because each of us must die anytime, you like it or not.Those who writes on this wedsite, are not the one who suffers during the fighting.
        I thought we Southern Sudanese had learned something from Isaiah 18, that God will punish Sudan.In both our cultures Nuer and Dinka, we don’t like very much to shed the blood of the innocent,because God Punishment is waiting on who ever killed innocent people.
        So people let learn from the first, by knowing the differences between political ground and the destructions of our socities, wealth and human resource.-

        To Thieleling & likes,

        I really doubt what kind of creature are you? you shouldn’t be dancing with bloods of Dinka Bor in your hands, if even the killers always regret after the death. what sort of dailogue among the tribes in South Sudan you talking about than the meeting which took place in Benitu Unity State on may this year, Lou Nuer and Murle in Juba and great Dinka Bor and lou Nuer in Bortown. You guys always rush to your fabricate comments for the sake of writing without thinking who is going to read it.

        What do think the SPLA can do than deploying the SPLA soldiers to prevent your lou militias or gangsters whatever suit you. I see the so called Lou intellectuals are unhappy about word the militia rather than saying we were accused for nothing.

        Do you think that there were cattle in the administrative centre and police stations which was targeted by your militias/gangsters or arm civilians so that they can be called cattle raiders to qualify your claimed. If you South Sudan go on your directions of looting some people’s properties, lawlessness and killing including other party of Nuer as you attacted UN convoys with food reliefs on the way to Akooba.

        I read your comment last two weeks when you called all the tribes around to attacts Dinka Bor and you forget to called us on the other side of the river to come to kills Dinka Bor as your thought. It is very shameful for the people like you who are supposed to educates the Southerners about the important of life and having your own country you can proud of than to choose to be tribal precher which will is not going to take us to the promise land.

        May God bless South Sudan and help us from this mess Amen!

          Dear Southerners,

          This message is for Nuer and Dinka tribes. Listen up my beloved people. I’m half Dinka and half Nuer. Frankly, I don’t agree with both sides due to the violent acts they’re committing upon each other. It’s hurting me to see you killing each other.

          To be honest, I think we are the sources for most problems in the South Sudan due to our frequent conflicts. Please tone down your racial hatered for each other and try to communicate your concern peacfully; preach peace and unity instead of violence and attrocities that will eliminate both of you particularly in the South, and Sudan in general. Hatered is not going to take us anywhere, but it will put a heavy burden upon our next generation’s shoulder,if we made thus far.

          Brothers and sisters, enough is enough, a lot has been said and little is been done by authorities to remedy our fragile state. Alas, it is us who will take charge on these matters. So please stop these tribal rhetotics and caln mongers, and give peace&love a chance.

          As the largest two tribes in the south, we have a moral obligations to respect and love our commnuities regardless. Also, we should be aware that there are other communities live beside us who longing for peace and tranquility, but as the big two, we’re exporting our constant feuds to them instead of peace and harmoney. We should act according to our weight in the south. We should be THE peace makers for all people of S.Sudan. I think we can do that if we come together.

          My brothers in Dinka side, and my brothers in Nuers side, take it easy on yourselves because of someone like me, who is an offspring of both tribes. I do not like to suffer and disappointed due to you acts. I should be proud of you otherwise. I’m still optimistic for the future. I have hopes for you to lift S. Sudan from its miseries and sufferings. So please cease this hostility now

          Brothers and sisters, there are many people like me who got caught hoplessly in the middle. They can’t not take side in this crucial matter, but what can they do? Is it to sit a side and watch while you are killing each other? Is it the best choice to see you dying? Of course, BIG No would be my choice. Further, my choice is peacful resolutions for all our differences. we should be more civilized to agree and to disagree without any remorse or hostility to each other.

          I’m sorry, but I have to inform you about how I feel regarding your dolorous situations. I can’t express myself enough in this forum because I have a lot to say onto you. If you care, listen to me ( just a little bit). Preach peace and promote unity among yourselves and southern communities as well, and God will bless both of you.

          Thanks, Kumi,

      Dear Nuer Public,

      Dinkas cannot simply judge their judgement true!!
      There are no Lou Nuer Militia, but Lou Nuer Youth as the evidences suggested. The Lou Nuer Youth presented their soundest reasons, grievanes that compelled them to revenge the Dinka-Bors.

      Dinkas are always quick to cry treason, appeasing their own fears. ’BETRAYAL’! The Nuers have sold us to Arabs and stabbed us in the back. Your diatribe against the Nuers is well taken. All are baseless accusation meant for political manipulation of judicial process on public mind/opinion of south sudanese against the Nuers. But it terribly failed because it does not based on factual truth.

      But until we agree to resolve our problems with alternative dispute resolution or mediations designed to bring about Peace, the worst is yet to come in south sudan. TRUST ME!! The fact that Dinkas called Lou Nuer civilians militia is dishonest and misguided. The Lou Nuers are legit civilians like every other civilian population in South Sudan.

      Peace begins with TRUST. But our Dinkas brothers are not trusting characters. They are just poisoning the situations with more lies like Philip Thon Aleu feeding this website. The Dinka-Bor Journalist’s dancing between calling the ongoing conflict Cattle Rustling, tribal or militia smacks his hypocrisy. He only called the conflict one thing or others when it suits Dinka-Bors interests. It is interesting and unfortunate, this is also Kuol Manyang’s state policy stance, a tribal one.

      South Sudan political future does not really look good now based on these sensless, mindless violence among the civilians. But the potential costs of Dinka lies are more apparent. Stop lies and begin conflict resolution process. Begin by honestly telling the truth. You can’t play politics of deaths. Think strategicaly people.

      John Garang killed Gai Tut, Chuol Deang, and displaced Paulino Matip, Gordon Koang Chuol and many others from Bilfam Head Quarter in Nuerland in 1983. Garang also jailed Vincent Kuany latjor and many others. So, John Garang killed, displaced or jailed the above leaders just because they were/are Nuers.

      These Nuer and south sudanese heroes were the founders of new movement before Garang robbed them of it with the help of former communist Ethiopian Dictator. When Garang’s conspiracies succeed against these Nuer heroes, he began to called them militias. He called them militias because he wanted the new SPLA forces to finish them.

      Now, Gier Chuong, Kuol Manyang, Kuol Diem Kuol began to call a legitimate Nuer civilians, the Lou Nuers as militia. They began to call our Nuer civilian population militia because Gier & the two Kuols want to finish the Nuer civilians using the SPLA forces again. They are repeating what John Garang did to Paulino Matip, Gordon Koang, Vincent Kuany, Gai Tut, Chuol Deang and others.

      Unless the Nuers in SPLA forces and GOSS are self-hating Nuers, this should NEVER repeat itself. Our Dinka brothers are not peaceful, fair and honest. The Nuers in the armed forces and Goss need to wake up. and the TIME IS NOW!! "The Nuer is a nation rooted in a history of sacrifice and achievement, and this business of dusting off Nuer reputation can only be explained in the dishonesty and divisiveness in current southern affairs. Many think the qualification of being a tribe is enough credentials to run a national affairs of Southern Sudan".

      The current dishonest leadership led by Dinkas should NOT be trusted or respected because it does not respect NUER lives. Gier Chuong and the two kuols hypocrisy shuold be enough evidence to any doubting thomas out there. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

      Don’t play with Nuer lives because of prestige positions or money in GOSS, PERIOD!! There is enough oil in Nuerland, but Nuer lives are PARAMOUNT to protect. Don’t be bought with your own Nuer oil money that comes from Nuerland. It is your land, your oil!! Please protect Nuer lives. Gier Chuang needs a close scrutiny. He seems hastily heading up for something. Be Watchful!!

        Lets not talk of disarmament because it is of no essence to disarm one tribe leaving out the main enemy, and if you are not Nuer by tribe then you are wrong to say that, I would have appreciated if you could have said lets arms the civil populations of south Sudan to live in hostile life as Somalia, and we say we are in freedom.

          Basically disarmament should be conducted equally among all the communities in the South. Howver, no one trust Dinka SPLM/A disarmament program.

          In Juba town everybody knows how selective and segragative disarmament exercises are being conducted. So if you want peace in the South,first disarm these Dinka terrorists, otherwise, we’ll be creating Somalia or Rwanda as yo have said.

      I think some of you might have gone-nut in their heads. these tribal issues will never end unless we unit. Some idiots on the other hand are supporting their own internal weakness to support these tribal grouping. I am 100% sure you are the loser at end. To friend who call themselves LN-Youth, The SPLM doesn’t accuse anyone for nothing. Your collaboration matters in the 21 Civil War fought by right men and women of the right land. Listen, The International Communities could have ever agreed on the Signing the CPA if SPLM was wrong on their Agendas and ambitions. Please Don’t make yourself a conflict make instead of becoming more civilised by Including "This is why the SPLM has been accusing the NCP of favoring Messriya tribe against Ngok-Dinka in Abyei". SPLM will never Do this until end of their ruling in this Country. one day one time you will regret these actions!

      From: Lou Nuer Community Development International, Inc USA

      We the Lou Nuer Community members here by alerting the international community and peace loving countries who share interest in political and peace development in the Sudan, particularly South Sudan as well as those countries who had been in support of peace between the Sudan government and the SPLM. We sincerely appreciate the effort made by international community that initiated the CPA of 2005, which eventually stop Africa’s longest civil war fought over two decades in Sudan.

      We believed the US, the EU, the UN, and the African union, and the international development agencies, such as NGO’s are currently giving their full support to the SPLM-Government of South Sudan. However, and to the contrary, as international community devoted their resources in helping the Government of South Sudan to achieve effective governance, the government of Southern Sudan led by the Dinka’s have chosen to be selective on how these resources are allocated and deliver, this is not to mention which tribal communities are given the priority of government protection when it comes to security problem.

      Moreover, the Dinka led SPLM government failed to provide adequate social services to all Southern Sudanese; continued to practice discriminatory policies in all government positions; while engaging in massive corruption. The results of such in effective government in South Sudan: is anarchy, insecurity, destitution, inter-tribal fighting; and hate politics.

      Since the SPLM government took over South Sudan government, there had been many preventable tragic incidents in South Sudan. In the last few months alone, many lives were lost; communities been displaced; and innocents’ people died; and they will continue dying unless the international community involve to prevent anticipated genocide which is in the making against the Nuer by Dinka led government.

      Since last year, Lou Nuer community had been raids by Murle gunmen leading to the death of over five hundred people including children and women. On several occasions, Lou Nuer community was attacked; their villages were burn down by Duke County Dinkas; and many more were killed. Yet the South Sudan Government failed to act. As recently as this month, a colonel belonging to SPLM army was murder daylight in Bor Town only because he happened to be Lou Nuer. Once again the SPLM government did nothing.

      Again on March 11, 2009, the Duke County Dinka murdered Lou Nurs including women and children. In this time, the very SPLM Nuer police officials and seven Wild life officers who finished their training in their way to Nyirol County were also killed. In addition, 93,000 (Ninety three thousands Sudanese pounds of teachers salaries for the county were also taken at the same time by organized Duke Dinkas. The killing and the looting of money was done by the Duke County Commissioner Mr. Mayen Ngore. We believed, such evil action was taken with the knowledge of governor kuol Manyang Juuk; with the motive to prevent manpower and social services from reaching Nuers areas.

      This is true because once again, on August 8, 2009, four million Sudanese pounds belongs to Ayod County (another Nuer County) were looted and robbed by the Duke County organized Dinka forces. As usual, and up to now, no legal action was taken by the Dinka led South Sudan government. Despite active complain from community of Lou Nuer and other Nuers in the state, the Dinka government refused to do anything, but condemning those raids.

      As one can see, the Dinka led government had intentionally killed and looted the money which was going to social services of those Nuers counties. Moreover, since the South Sudan government was established the Bor Dinka blocked the roads going to Nuers counties and other tribes living in the states with intention to prevent them from social services and development. The Lou Nuer community has presented many complains time after time, but the Dinka led government of South Sudan did nothing (No Justice). Thus, “Justice Delay is justice Dined”.

      Recently fueled by the failure or inaction from the Government of South Sudan members of Lou Nuer youth took justice in their own hands and attacked Duke County an act which we Lou Nuer members in United States condemned greatly because we believe tremendously on peaceful coexisting of communities. However, the reaction of the South Sudan Government in this particular incident has puzzled many people.

      In the past few days, the Dinka-led SPLM government has been propagating and distorting the reality of what happened in Duke County of Jonglei state. The propaganda led and championed by the Duke County native, the Internal Minister of South Sudan Mr. Gier Chuang Aluong and Governor Kuol Manyang Juuk (both from Dinka Bor), alleged that the area was attacked by “a heavily armed militia”. This false accusation by SPLM officials was not only aimed at manipulating the international community but also was intended at diverting the inter-tribal conflict between the Dinka and Nuers, and thereby, hoping to mobilize the SPLM army against the Nuer.

      We the Lou Nuer community strongly and equivocally condemned such political manipulation and distortion and urge the Sudanese, particularly Southern Sudanese at large to ignore this cheap propaganda aimed at nothing but the protection of Dinka community. The cheap talks about “the government of South Sudan vows to protect civilians”. Again, this is yet, another dangerous political deception. The issue at hand and the questions need to be address here is that: Where was the South Sudan government when the Equatoreians civilians were subsequently killed? Where was the South Sudan government when the Luo and Murle civilians killing each other leaving more than 1000 civilians dead? Where was the South Sudan government when inter-tribal fighting took place in equatorians, which left many civilians dead? Where was the so called South Sudan government when innocent Shuluk were killed daylight in front of Salva Kirr?

      Here we do not need a rocket scientist to prove to us the logic of Dinka government. The truth of the matter is that: the lives of 60 Dinkas are more of value and important than the lives of 1000 Lou Nuer and Murle; 1200 lives of equatorians civilians, as well as other Southerners. Thus, the so called “South Sudan vows to protect civilians” not only a cheap approach, but a pretext created by the Dinka elites to use the SPLA army to commit atrocity against the Nuer as they did last time.

      As we speak, the Dinka-led government had mobilized a large military forces equipped with modern tanks and others military weapons and launched it to Lou Nuer areas with an objective of destroying Lou Nuer people in revenge of Duke county incident. Currently, some attempts are being made to stop the SPLM troop mobilization, but to no avail. The attempt is impossible because personal vendettas of Internal Minister Mr. Gier Chuang Aluong who is from Duke County and Governor Kuol Manyang (both Dinka). Therefore, the current action being taken by the minister of interior and the governor undeniably demonstrated their willingness to enforce the so call laws only when their tribe being subject to the same suffering, which many south Sudanese had endured.

      We are concern that an arrival of those military to Lou Nuer areas will cause genocide, because Lou Nuer will not see the present of SPLA forces in their areas as friendly and for security purposes, but as intervening enemy forces. Therefore, any foreseeable act that can cause genocide must be stop before it happened. Therefore, we are appealing to the international community to intervene and stop political disaster, which we believe will have a great impact on the CPA.

    Another attempt by the Dinka to demonize a whole ethnic group in order to instill fear into the Southern populace to retain their tyrannical corrupt rule. And now I read statements by Dinka saying the SPLA should forcefully disarm the Nuer as in actually go to war with them and repeat what they did in the 1990s that left 2 million dead.

    This is getting very concerning....

      To Gatwech and Oshay

      you two are tribal preachers against each others. Goverment can side with people who have been attack. It can side with Lou if they are regularly attack by other group. I guest you might know the background about how they get there in the firstplace. Preacher it, and it will satisfied us all; we all bleed and cry a tears. Government a protectors of every community.

      Why are is no Tribal attack in the North? if it happen, the government will side with them. When other Group move to attack others community; Goverment protect the Victim Community. That what call Government and you will see in the future. Those Armies Group will be huntdown one by one in Lou and Murlei. If they do not attack other Tribes; no government will rise eyes brown. There will be a time when our little Goss will have full capacity to conduct Law and Order; to those who never respected it.

      "When the citizen are showing the evile eyes; the government deal with them in the demon eyes". We have to act as good citizen to take our Nation forward. our children can learn like others world community in good face.
      for those are abroad, i knew how difficulty they are facing; because they didn’t have background of education.

      In this way, how are we going to develope while everyday fighting among ourselves. i have been in North America,and i know how sorrowfull our people there. And difficult to study as an adult person. I feel sorry for people who still preaching tribals line in fights. The leadership is our hands as young generation. The elders leaders wil go some time. And we will be remain behind. Are we still going to act they same way now a day?

    These thugs who are trying to explain away an assault on innocent civilians and authorities in the South should be arrested for inciting violence. This is not an ordinary civilians-to-civilians fight. It was an attack against the symbol of government. If they are willing to do this, they have been corrupted and compromised by jallabah.

    Lnya is nothing more than a terror group trying to justify their heinous act. Those who represent it should be the first to be arrested and investigated for their ties to armed organized group in South.

    Southern Sudan is not a land without laws. If there uncivilized cowards can attack civilians just to score political points, then authorities in the South ought to treat them with the most strictest of punishments.

    They can wipe out Dinka Bors and of Dinkas of Salva kiir who take side against Nuers within only 15 days.

    Nuers can start shasing you from Duk Padiet all the way to Rumbeck within 15 days, like the example, of 1991 warnig against you.

    Lou Nuer or Nuers do not have Militias. Lou Nuer or Nuers have only what is well known call NGunDeng Army Resistance(NGAR).

        Majok and Dinka boy.

        You happen to call Nuers Cowards but I doubt you guys understand the real meaning of the term. How can you call people who defeat you cowards? If I ask you just a simple question, WHAT PART OF NUER HAVE YOU FOUGHT AND CAPTURED, YOU DINKAS, or JAANG? can you mentioned any? of course not!Common guys, just understand your words or talk just like real men.

        You guys do not really understood Nuers. Do you know how Nuer reacts when they fight with someone they call (Jang?)
        Here is how it goes: If the fight is too dangerous and Nuers almost run a way, one man can yield and say (You running a way from Jaang Slaves?) Right there everyone will return to fight even if they don’t have bullets. So brothers, you should be ashamed with your own words by calling Nuers cowards, that word alone DOES NOT REALLY FIT the Nuer description. May be you can try another team.

        Good luck.

      Hi Mr Controller, or what ever name you call youself.All these thugs (communties) you mention has no valuable leader,(execeped Greater Equatoria)this communities may opted to hand over the our country to Jallaba when the war started again,belief me (traitor)as your people proved it in 1991.when they joint Khartoum start from age 14 to 80 old went to khartuom without ashame.hahah,anyway the history alway is the best teacher, when history is going to be writen about south sudan i don’t know, how you will be discribing yourselvies in the history book.also rememeber Lou Nuer has many problems with the tribe you just mention,example have you forgot when Murle just kill 185 people and Jikany Nuer kill some your fellow.what i know so far is that,your community is cast.they have no friend in the southern sudan at all.maybe Arab who has been hosting you since 1991,feeding you.and i belief will accepte those aburd behaviors to led thugs who are lacking basic human moral to sale southern sudan back to Jallaba.you have no leader at all.the present commanders are all criminal and they have no capacity to lead our nation to our promise land.Don’t even mention Equatorian,they are civilise communities.the can not accepted to collibrate with your uncivil killer Lou Nuer.Dinka Padiet have been very people but you thugs teach them how to do immoral practice.i know not all Nuer are bad but particular Lou Nuer will never change their immoral habit.if i ask you.when you thugs callibrated with your master Arabs Army in 1991.SPLA/M under our hero Dr John Garang did many achievement in your absent.but when you thugs seen CPA was appraching ,your uncle Riak Macher contact John Garang for peace.and you were accommadated. and you criminal came with many different militia group who claim different vision.Even chief in the village commision himself as commander arround himself with few village-mate and who can not write or speak English nor Arabic.what a commuity anyway.so make sure Dinka are the only Bulls who can liberate you from your former hasband sir.in the history of sudan.no Lou Nuer has ever elected to become vice president or legitmate regional leader.you know why.because your people prove themself as community who like noise and traitor behaviors and lacking leader who can says things valuatable.if you are mighty weriors why don’t you fight Arab in all these year.sorry mate .fack you all.resevive your behaviors thugs.

      Mr.Majok, Nuer fought British from 1821-1928 which when you sum up will make 107 years and they were never defeated. Besides,they brought down a plane with a woden stick and did many other historical things that will be recorded in history of Southern Sudan. I think even if Dinka had weapons, they would have done nothing with them. Don’t talk of Nuer to be given any formal education or whatsoever by Dinka.

      Mr. Majok, you don’t fit to articulate anything pertaining to eduation whether on the net or by any other technological device about Nuer instead of talking about Nuer’s need of education from tribalistic Dinkas. Thank you for your education, but go back to school!

      Gatwech, Thieleling, Oshay and Dinkaboy.

      The above are equal. Nuer is vulnerable tribe to be influence easily by the Arabs, their past history will justified my point. Dinka is a very tollerance community, but Dinkaboy is tarnishing it image. If SPLA was a Dinka’s army as LNYA fasely state, we could have used all the military capacity of the movement in retaliation against what Nuer did in Bor 1991 because Riek then failed to arm his troops, the failure that force him to ally with NIF in Khartoum. Oshay is just a trojan-horse willing to throw bone for Nuer and Dinka to fight over it, and standby to cheers. History never hide, what happen in South Sudan between Nuer and Dinka will be reveal in details and a true patriot will emerge.

      Nuer people although, people doubt that they will at one time take leadership in the south sudan through their high number of educated people who may be expected to be more diplomatic currently not before will not learn the diplomatic at all. They will remain living a life of gangs, hyenas and vultures, that is it. Can you imagine PhD holder was the first man to raise his arm against his own people which he currently try to lead by saying he need to be a candidate for the national presidancy. The journalist who took the video of sudan massacre had even mentioned in youtube that " Can you imagine,a British doctorate in Engineering killing his own people instead of fighting arab people who have imbushed them for long time". So do you people think Nuer people will kiss their degrees they are now struggling after in the world for the betterment? Even those who are doing degrees are the worth and they are the one inciting their people to act on behalf of them. Evil life and the whole world is changing gradually, but nuer people aim higher in killing. Some body from Nuer community came recently from Canada and told us here in Juba that, they "(Nuer)people are very many in Western world and many of us are studying mostly in the Universities" For that we didn’t feel like to be there too and learn whether in Universities or Colleges since these people are after fist not peacefulness. Things are done in this world through peace. Can imagine, first world war, second world war and southerners sudanese with the government of sudan fought but came back to make peace, but can Nuer peace among their own fellow south sudanese people be achieved????????????????????

        You happen to blame Nuer PHD holders for taking arms agains civilians, but you failed to considered that the first PH.D holder who took arms against his Nuer civilians was a Dinka man Dr. Garang . What do you think about 1985-1986 SPLA killing Gajaak Nuer Civilians, who do you think ordered William to ambushed civilian? Was it Not Dr. Garang? And what took Dr. Ngor to Lol Gung Jaang that lead him to his death there, was it because he was firing his gun to Nuer civilians?

        Here brother, you need to understand that these Nuer generation is not the generation that Dinka uses to drag from here to there. We know whats sup, and understand that all your propagandas are being recorded legitimately. Be mindful and learn from your own words.

        From here, Who ever do not consider Nuers to lead South Sudan should start refraning from now on. To be candid with you mate, the life of Southern is in the hand of Nuer right now. If you don’t know, you should know that from today.

        Once again, your claim is useless and irrelavent.

    God have mercy on South Sudan. We are in real troubles under the failed leadership of Lt. Gen.Salva Kiir. The ongoing killings and spiraling of violent conflicts is too much to bear for the future of the South.

    I am almost losing hope if the current failed SPLM leadership continue to rule the South with incomptetence and tribalism. The change must come and it should be a genuine change to save the people of Southhern Sudan from the recurrent massive deaths and insecurities.

      We all know the historical backstabbers are back alive and well and they are rearing their scarificated, contored and raptored ugly faces against the marching ahead of South Sudanese as they have been doing all along the course of 23 years of liberation struggle.Luo almost wreck the infant SPLM/SPLA in 1980s were it not in the hands of shrewed officers and intellectuals such as Dr. Garang, Kerubino, Nyuon, and current Salva Kiir.After the current peace was signed the same Lou refused to be disarmed and massacred more then 300 SPLA soldiers and was disciplined by the SPLA to a point its paid heavy price.Has the Dinka Bor even without John Garang ever done anything to these heroic soldiers? All the Lou knows is to eat and defecate because they will never come out with a saving idea only mediocrity, havoc, pillage rustling and kidnapping.When was the last time Lou produced any idea that can save South Sudan? what prove of bravery, credit of patriotism can Lou claim they possessed on this soil of South Sudan? What might do Lou possessed except running to the NIF/NCP for armement to come and attack the SPLA organize forces and citizens who are loyal to their army, governmnet and land? Lou had butchered SPLA soldiers and recruits on the way to and from Ethiopa more then the Arabs did in the battle fields air and sea because they didnot want the SPLA to be founded, to operate and liberate the people of South Sudan.
      What war is Lou waging against the SPLA and loyal citizens? it is an old war of disloyalty, treachery, betrayal, desertion, bribery from Jellaba generally Gaat and must be labelled as such. Lou usually rears their ugly contuored faces when victory to southerners is near.They did it at the foundation of the and General Kiir, Speaker Wani Igga are witnesses and they did it again in 1991 when the SPLA was about to capture Juba hence, complete the liberation struggle in the South and to declare an independent Southern state.Now that they have sensed Southerners are marching ahead to peaceful elections and vote peacefully at referendum to declare independent South Sudan state, they are mad again. Theirs is a pure envy, jealousy and hatred against the SPLA and its loyal citizens because Lou is on the wrong side of history that is why they have been all along trying to sabotage everything from the begginning. Make no mistake that SPLA and its loyal citizens will not take it lying down.They will responds and sure they will and Lou will go to Ethiopia.
      On civilians level, coward Lou cannot and will not do anything against the smart, more sopisticated, patriotic, loyal and brave Greater Dinka Bor that is why they hit and run back to their bushes where they come from.If they were brave and mighty as they cowardly claim, then why didn’t they stay foot at the site where they armbushed the civilians at Baping,where they stealthily massacred women,children and elderly at Wernyol and Dut Padiet so that the brave and mighty Dinka Bor from Bor, Twic and Duk Counties will come and join them in the battle?
      Lou are coward if not, then come back attack and stay foot so that the battle enrage why hit locations, loot, rape, kidnap, pillage and steal and run? Stay and wait for Mony Jaang(man of men) to join in combat if you are men.
      Come back or the Dinka Bor will get you where you are and chase you to Ethiopia and sure your destination is already decided like in 1996 when the Bor responded you you went to Ethiopia and sure this time you will go into refugee camps in Ethiopia and it will be ugly for you on the way to the refugee camps.

      Dear James Okuk Solomon,

      Am absulately convince that you are doom to fail if you choose Lam Akol as Political mentor as i read in most of your articles. what wonder me about you is that; how can you support a Politician who is not shrewn enough when making his or her Political decision? Dr. Lam is not a bad person i should say that, but i doubt his judgment, he defected in 1991 at a time when SPLA/M was military strong; not to over run the enenmy, but has a capacity to force the enemy to negotiate peace on its terms, whether to achieved a vision of New Sudan which hand the entire country to the blacks like in the case of South Africa, or if the enemy is too deform to reform like Dr. John used to said, then referrendum of the people of South Sudan will be the only alternative to counter their Islamic agenda because we’re not Islamist. The people of South Sudan has charge Lam and Riek for that missed opportunity. He came back back to rejoint the SPLM/A at the eve when peace was around the corner. I thought if were him, i could have first restore trust between me and the people of South Sudan. Am not trying to say that Garang was right and Lam was wrong, what am trying to emphasised is that; when you decided to walk away to build your own house due to differences with your mate, he will be glad to have you leave, but if you comes back and decided to rejoint him again, he will still accept you, but something will ring in his mind that you had failed to pursue your ambition of building your own house. The fact that Dr. Lam came back to SPLM Garang’s faction and not Dr. Garang going to him is in question.

      At a time when the people of South Sudan are just waiting by the gate to enter the referrendum compound, he quit again to form his own party, again the people accused him of being a trojan horse within. i know the leadership in Juba is not fulfilling its obligations as expected, but you must know this quote from Aristotle that; "he was loose the support of the people, is a King no longer". SPLM is not doing well enough to live upto its promises, but the movement has break the ground that no other Political party has ever done it before in the history of South Sudan, so it has the support of the people. It is ANC or KANU of South Sudan, KANU was defeated in Kenya after nearly 40 years in power, ANU is still on the stage in South Africa, but i hope it will be defeated in the near future. SPLM will be defeated too, but with time. If Lam choose to win the people out of the SPLM at the moment; then he is flately wrong, and i have a nagging doubt, that he is fighting a loosing battle, you are a young man with great potential. distant yourself from his political style and look somewhere to lauch your Political career if you would like to become a Politician.

    Gatwech and Thieling.

    Hand up for you boys, you always do great things, keep up your words.

    Those barking Dinkas do not realize it yet, but let them just understand that this is just the begginning. More will mourn later if they will not justified their attitudes. They kept calling Nuers Militia, while Nuer armies in the SPLA are the ones taking any single step to confront Jalaba.

    Who help the Dinka Abiei when a Dinka Commander ran a way with his force; was it not a Nuer man who defeated Jalaba forces?
    Who Garang hang on when Bergate armies who were mostly Nuer almost defeated SPLA? Was it Not late William Nyuon Bany a Nuer man?

    This time, Nuer have to consider these two words seriously.(Nyagat, and Militia) If they (Jaang) still carrying the old ideologies, they should know that this is not 91, 0r 2000, but it is 2009 where things have changes unexpectely. If Dinkas still consider themselves as the only real armies in the South Sudan, then they should not that the time is near for Nuer Militias to leave them Dinkas with their Dinka real army. But they should know that the Name SPLA was not created by a Dinka Man, and it should infect goes with who ever created it. There after, we will understand who is really Militia and who is not.
