Sudan 1st VP safe after plane accident in Uganda


November 25, 2009 (WASHINGTON) – The Sudanese first vice president Salva Kiir survived an accident today that was caused by the rupture in one of the tires on the plane he and his delegations were boarding, Ugandan media reported.

However the foul play was ruled out. The incident brings back bitter memory on the death later SPLM leader John Garang who was killed after his helicopter crashed en route from Uganda.

The pilot managed to steer the plane away from hitting the trees which was almost certain to cause harm to the passengers.

The government of Southern Sudan sent another plane to instead of the Antonov 74 cargo plane.

Kiir was in Uganda to discuss the border tensions with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

    Brothers and sisters,i had writen in my response to Kiir travel to Uganda mentioning about this accident but wasnt posted.This is another tragic news but do we learn our lesson about the type of plane we use?Why is it Kiir all the time travel to Uganda to meet up with uganda president but Uganda president dont travel to Sudan?Not long ago our president was in Uganda,cant he delegate his task to other officials?Does it have to be him all the time traveling?

    The information we have,this accident happaned in town of Gulu in northern Uganda,what was he doing there?Was it the place to meet with Uganda president?

      WA WA shareholder God be with u, you are still young to live life. Sad news to dinkas and SPLA gangs, because SPLA corruption and tribalism was nearly to come to an end if they didn’t survive, this is why dinkas boy or kakuma boy was crying for his uncle to be safe. However am not encouraging harm to Kiir because death is a "natural order" that God in heaven knows when and where to make it happen. The goverment spend $ millions but failing to buy modern helicopters, relaying on old aircraft which has lots of mechanical problems. A president should have have a helicopter like Museveni when travelling to Mbarara he uses his private jet ranger which is 100% in good conditions. I warn Kiir to use or buy himself a modern jet otherwise life will get too short. It is time to learn from mistakes of relaying on ancient technology. This retard conspiracy cannot be blamed on either Museveni nor the polite because it is mechanical error "Whoever mis uses their lives it is up to them life goes" Garang as a found was killed accidential but still SPLA and South look the same no matter what, plane will do more than what we expect. Hungry leaders are waiting around Lam, Riek, Igga and Amum are there to continue the journey to its destination.

      God save Government of Sick service leaders, and it is time to step out of currotpion, looting, insecurity and poor management of government power. logic is far from tribal criticism

        these are fabricated news. the simple sign is that, the writer says the source of information is Uganda Media but in bracket there is Washington.So, which one is which? to my understanding, this is a foul-play by our enemy to create commotion between the southerners and Ugandans because Kiir was going to strengthen the relationship between Uganda and Southern Sudan.

        Oh that was so outrageous and a cowardice prayer.
        Discussing your exact wording(comment) on the above sad news is a red herring to prevent us looking the facts behind the crash.You have no guts at all to be talking this way and wishing such devilish thought to be happening oftentimes, you better broaden your horizons man if not button your lip.Anyway your bullshits are already a black marks against you

        What is this crash with Uganda route always have to do with Southern Sudanese? A question needs a discussion at this moment and to be found out before many more take Southern Sudanese a shock. If it’s about the boarded planes faultiness, why should it happen to be a route to and from Uganda?
        God have mercy on Southern Sudanese!, Are they cursed to finish in a plane crash? I don’t think so.

        I agree with you Big Logic boy.

        I do not see a clear reason as to why Kiir is still using a cargo plane while $ millions are in his hand. This is too absurd, life is more precious then those $. Imagine if it had just happened the way it happened to Dr. Garang, what hell exactly could have happened? It is simmply, more death could have occured of which we are not very ready for now. We better spend more $ for jet to safe Kiir life than to loose more lifes.

        well pliz the so called logic boy from no where, it is good for you to encourage the incident that was about to happen to Salver Kiir the president of south Sudan in the Uganda border airport. for you those who have grown up narrowly at border claiming to be Ugandan should n,t be blamed because you have dual citizenship of which we do not recognized you we the true Sudanese and we must stand with those who liberated the south Sudan. Kiir did n,t came for his boma affairs but he in fact came to settles these ever continues insecurity that you normally cause at the border.

      I actually hinted under the headline below Kiir travels to Kampala to meet Museveni on border tensions, that cautioned must be taken when dealing with M7!! Yes bro, presidents are people that are vulnerable to accidnets and incidents in their course of ife. This is just stil "a near miss". M7 claimed lives of visionary men and women of Africa.

      Kiir Mayardit shall never die, he is our President of an independent Republic of South Sudan nation.

      Kiir shall peacefully relinquish power to Dr. Riek Machar Teny in 2013 and Dr. Riek shall be our next President of the Republic South Sudan and then Pagan Amum shall take over after Dr. riek’s term is over, a lovely Republic of South Sudan, let all the doubting Thomas keep quite now.

      Lam Akol shall not and will never lead South Sudanese, he just but a money man who has got a lot of money at the expense of South Sudanese from Network of Criminal People (NCP).

      Dear South sudanese brothers & sisters,

      I urge those south sudanese who have unquestionable loyalty to south sudanese cause regardless of the party affiliations to N0T negatively comment on this article. First, let thank God nothing bad happened to our president, Salva Kiir Mayardit.

      Please, have unity of purpose and comment maturely if you have to do news analysis on this article. Otherwise, leave this to highly skilled intelligence south sudanese professionals in GOSS. I hope this incident would be subjected to investigative verifications.

      Therefore, this is not for warfighters, but it is for south sudanese national security policy-makers. This requires leadership of all levels, communities among all south sudanese. We therefore want our security professionals’ Commitment to inquiry, truth, and discovery facts of this incident. Today is a bad day & please do not be naive & immature about it.

      Long live south sudan!! Long live Salva Kiir Mayardit!! Long live all our prominent leaders & people!! Long live unity of south sudanese!! Long live south sudanese creativity & intelligence community!! We shall overcome all the odds with our commitment to our independence & cause!!

      Your borther,

      This is the result of massive corruption that Kiir’s thought it will never affects him.The cause of this near miss accident was due to worn out tyres of the plane.The plane was chartered by Kiir security personel who lack technical know how,instead of going for an expensive and well service plane,relying on advise of trained engineers,they instead,opts to go for a cheap one with worn out tyres and pocket the rest of the money.Kiir needs to know that he needed trained engineers and security personel to make this decisions of hiring planes that he can use.He need to recruit any qualified person not neccasserily from his village.The like of Akook Noon,Bol Madut and Luka Biong well never make well researched and informed decisions concerning technical parts of planes,besides,in Salva’s village,there are no qualified engineers as they choose not to work hard but eat free things.This is a good lesson.Your paranoia will cost you your life even if you think you are well protected by the guys from your clan.you need to hire qualified South Sudanese to do the job and do not look at them in tribal lenses as if they will take your life.Corruption is getting there if not stamped out soon.They will go for cheap things,even one day,you will consume the cheap chang’aa that will burst your already brown eyes due to alcoholism

Your little mind is talking about how many southerners, and northerner died when Garang died.
            What are you comparing that to? When we can speak about the Millions that died in your Jihad to convert the people to be Muslims, and Arabs, you want us to not hate that? Excuse you selfish self. And you are right my sisters, and brothers did nothing to you, and you, but still they, and we felt the burns of your hatred, it’s just your time around to feel ours, while you have a peaceful option of how to proceed forward if you want to avoid our wrath, and anger.

          Too much money has been poured into South Sudan for developmental activities such as buying new presidential plane so that they would not rely on chartering old Antonov 74 for president but due to high level of corruption, Dinka dominated government resorted to looking these meager resources. Therefore, they have become blind to any kind of development and eat like gluttons and vomit on the shoes of donors. They blame others for own failures and reckless life styles.

      He make it his business to travel to Uganda all the time,but this can serve as warning to him.
      Was he going for X-mass shopping in Kampala?
      I read in the headline in the morning that he was going to Uganda to discuss bounder issue, why not Mseveni to come to Sudan? I can’t remember the last time he (Mseveni) came to Sudan.

      I can not blame Mseveni much as Kiir will now learn from his own mistake.

    Sudanese leaders should stop ugandan plane otherwise they should use their planes, if not, they should use International plane.

    oh Gees!

    when will we learn from the lessons that you Uganda has taugt us and its Neighbours over years, look father Savorino of Anyaya 1 and the Dr. Garang all died in Uganda on their national duties,what about the Genocide of Rwanda?, was Uganda not complicit in it?, Prseident Abyramana of Rwanda and the Brundian president all died when uganda is implicated in their death, does Museven want to complicated us again before we reached our destination?

    South Sudan should not always be quick to rule out foul plays in matters like this, we easily conceded in Garang’s crash when Uganda never even ansewered alot of investigation questions and non-compliance with the investigations,we all know all that Uganda have done to us in terms of not taking care of our leaders, look at how we care for Museveni when he comes to South Sudan to an extents of closing down our businesses and roads for the sake of his safety and Uganda, but when will Uganda begin to protect our state in their territory, I feel Uganda is taking advantage of our being preocupied with the Northern sudan at the expense of diplomatic responsibilties that others states like Uganda owe us, so many world leaders travel to Uganda on daily basis but never do we hear of any accidents or death in Uganda like we frequented over the last three years.

    please south Sudan, we shouldnot be rendered so vulnerable and be at the mercy of other states like Uganda because of trade, we are not the only ones who gain in trade, instead, we are a market for Uganda and others and we are not getting any thing in return apart from consumptions, some of the benefits that are there will always be there by their nature not by how much we are there to praise others and ignore all their wicked deeds to us and our country, a death of a president is some thing internationally regarded as costly by all, so Uganda should not be there to be witch hunt for our leaders on behalf of Khartuom.

      You are just contradicting with yourself, even though you know the facts very well!How come Uganda is working on behalf of Khartoum?since when?

      The problem is as you said yourself, you are preoccupied with Arabs, Jalabba,bla..blaa,until you start to deny what you see with your eyes or what you here with your own ears!

      Showing hatred to jalaaba, is becoming a passport to patriotism in THE SPLA ERA

    The news was posted from Washington. We don’t need any more proof that Museveni is a puppet of the west. Museveni is a tyrant but he is a darling of the west, so his skeletons stay locked in the closet. If he manages to see the light and change his treasonous ways and try to help his own people, he will definetly end up like Mugabe. It is reasonable to ask God why we Africans bear the brunt of all suffering, but the answer stares us in our face everyday. Manipulation of all levers of power through the entrenched imperialism and hijacking by special interests of most governments is the one reason. Secondly, African rulers like Museveni who watch this happen are almost as bad are their masters. Salva Kiir should avoid Uganda at all costs.

      Ugandan government must investigate the Ugandans enjoying life in Khartoum,a world terrorist city and its embassy in Khartoum.Also, airplane corporation and especailly private business organizations in Uganda into the matter.

      Mean while,the international community must this time take serious investigation into the Ugandan government to find out the perpetrators of this airplane crash of southern Sudanese leaders which only happens in Uganda.

    Again Uganda, that’s a most terrible news indeed. Museveni’s plan on South Sudan leaders is becoming clear day by day and God will surely reveal it. But my advice to Mr. president HE salva Kiir is that you have travelled to much abroad and over seas. It is not good for a leader to have these frequent travel due, it is for diplomatic or political reasons, it should not real be more than two times in a month. Imagine you have just come from Europe and to Uganda again makes you more vanerable for other political conspiracy.

      This will never happened- no matter how much and and how many times will Ugandans be bought by the enemy of the South to bring fate to South Sudan. In this deal Uganda has got to be ’’careful’’.
      We thank God that he survived this ruthless plan by evil people.

      My advice to GOSS/President Kiir:
      1. They should stop using Antenov 74 cargo right away instead Kiir should use another plane other then this.
      2. Secondly, they have to be careful about Museveni- he is a silence killer and double dealer.
      3.They should get back the presidential Jet that was policized. Kiir has legitimate rights to use presidential Jet in the cap of Sounthern Sudan.
      4. As some one proposed earlier on, Kiir either has to delegate some one instead of him every time and/ or else, have to have Ugandan representatives to come to Juba.

      This meeting was a plan, it wasn’t a meeting- shame on you the evil planners- your Money will get back to you carrying your own blood and not of any single Southern Sudanese.

        God of Southern Sudan, this can not happen again the same plan Museveni used to have a meeting with our leaders, but a plot to kill them. The Africans Nations must look very closely to Ugandans leader Museveni, he cause the genocide of Rwanda when Rwandans president visit Uganda in 1994 on his way back his plane crash that was a beginning of genocide. Same thing happened to our late hero Dr. John Garang de Mabior die under Museveni’s plott.

        This is a good evidence to prove that Uganda is a big enemy to South Sudan. Thanks God KIIR MAYAR DIT your time is not up yet [Monydit] you are the only survivor of the co-founders of SPLA/M you are bless to take Southern Sudan in the next milesstone.

      Hi there,

      I am a new member with fresh mind who has just joined this site at which a lot of issues are being discussed and analysed concerning our country the Sudan. I have been following the comments on this site and have encountered a lot of great thinkers who have the vision to transform this country from the era of ignorant corrupted leaders. These scholars together with my contribution will one day achived the goal we are dreaming for the welfare of the entire citizens of Sudan. When I said Sudan, that does not mean I am a unionist and I will neither tell you as to whether I am a seperatist but just an activist who would like to see into it that there is democracy, accountability and transparency in this poor country Sudan which is currently be led by incompetent leader and his corrupted ignorant traditionalist villagers who only know how to embezzel money and travelling like tourist without any productive results. On the other hand, I do feel sad to read some comments of those whom I can corretly presume to have very minum education from adult schools with the little verbal spoken english language graped from east Africa, they made this site to improve their written language. Pls! First go to better schools to do theortical part of studies and then come to the field in the public to exercise your skills other than exposing your illitrate and ignorant mind to the world. Shame on you. I am proude of famous Big Logic Boy including other briliant contributers. Get ready to receve sever criticism as since I am already in the system. Your briliant welcome and briliant comments to me are expected but let the illitrate and ignorant contributers refrain from today onward.

    Dear Southerners,
    Let us investigate first inorder to find out and know exactly what was the real cause whether human, mechanical and/or technical.
    This is just a warning to the Sourthern Sudanese leaders that Uganda has been cursed by the blood of those innocent people assassinated by the Ugandan Authoriries in the past.
    Therefore, the Government and the people of the Southern Sudan have to do something awful, regretful and immeasureable to the government of Uganda that would be remembered for the rest of its life.
    Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is a terrorist and one day he will find himself in a wheelchair so that his suffering will pay back for the blood which he has spilled.He is just an hyena he deserves no good voice and reputation in the African leadership. He must be brought to ICC justice and will only be freed if he assassinate the President of Suadn Omer Hassan Al Bashier.

    This was an accident not planned by someone somewhere, Ugandans are our brothers and will not plan such a stupid evil thing, I know because of the previous death of Dr Garang so now every accident in Uganda will be looked at with suspicious eyes but this was just an accident, Antinov planes especialyl the old series are very bad in shape and very risky to fly in, they look nice and big but they are a flying coffin, so we are glad the president is now back and safe.

    God is greater and can destory the ill intentions of humans!!!.
    The accident is now reminding me of that fateful visit of Dr Garang in which he died misterioursly in Uganda helicopter believed to be for his best friend Yoweri. My fellow country men we should remain calm and peaceful to fellow Ugandas despite the fact that there seam to be foul from the most senior politicians in Museveni’s government if he wasn’t part of the conspiracy.
    God has prevented the worst and we shouldn’t ignite fire. I know the accident will be percieved with mix reactions like hatred to ugandas to wishing Kiir death for those eyeing his seat but all in all these will lead to disaster of our future which we struggled for it in twenty one years of suffering. Let’s forget and hope for the best.
    Finally, I would like to ask my President (Kiir)and his politicians, how many times had Mr Yoweri Kaguta Museveni travelled to Juba or subburbs of Southern Sudan?. Our president and politicians are always travelling to Uganda for unknown things which haven’t yielded anything to South upto now. Pliz if you had nothing to do in Junub then don’t initiate troubles among your citizens and those from outside the South since they will be pointing fingers at each other.
    All fellow writers on this web should refrain from exchanging abuses and fuelling tribal hatreds through their unpatriotic writings. You should be mindful of the destiny of Southern Sudanese.

    God bless South Sudan
    God bless our leaders

    Dear South sudanese brothers & sisters,

    I urge those south sudanese who have unquestionable loyalty to south sudanese cause regardless of the party affiliations to N0T negatively comment on this article. First, let thank God nothing bad happened to our president, Salva Kiir Mayardit.

    Please, have unity of purpose and comment maturely if you have to do news analysis on this article. Otherwise, leave this to highly skilled intelligence south sudanese professionals in GOSS. I hope this incident would be subjected to investigative verifications.

    Therefore, this is not for warfighters, but it is for south sudanese national security policy-makers. This requires leadership of all levels, communities among all south sudanese. We therefore want our security professionals’ Commitment to inquiry, truth, and discovery facts of this incident. Today is a bad day & please do not be naive & immature about it.

    Long live south sudan!!
    Long live Salva Kiir Mayardit!!
    Long live all our prominent leaders & people!!
    Long live unity of south sudanese!!
    Long live south sudanese creativity & intelligence community!!
    We shall overcome all the odds with our commitment to our independence & cause!!

          Dear Southerners,

          I would like to give glory, praises, thanks giving and honour to Almighty God for saving the life of his servant and our beloved President Salva Kiir Mayardit in Uganda. When a man of God Moses died and God told the children of Israel that Joshua will lead his people to the promise land.

          H.E Salva Kiir is our Joshua who will lead his people South Sudan to our Independent day. Nothing will happen to him, he will travel through the air, on and under the water and by land and all over the world safety because our God is alive, and our Lord Jesus is all powerful than any gods on earth.

          Thank you to you Mr. Pilot, you deserve High Distinction and promotion. My Christian President, I am always praying for you. Your faith in Jesus will save you, wherever you go! Thank you, my God, thank you Jesus. Allelulia! Allelulia! Amen!

          To those who are against our President Salva Kiir, note that your life is in danger because you are fighting and complaining against God. Those leaders of Israel who opposed to Moses’ leadership were buried alive with all their families and again God sent fire and burned 250 people and 14, 700 people died of diseases because of complaining against Moses. Read the entire chapter (Number 16:30-35, 49). Be very careful about Kiir and better seal your mouth from top to bottom, is my brotherly advice to you. I will pray for you for forgiveness because you do not know what you are sayings.

          Let us all unite against our enemies and do not reply to those who are against the GOSS or who say bad words to your tribemen. God is going to punish them. Thank you Jesus!

As we all know that a great friend sometimes become an enemy, you better learn from the past incident that claim the life of our late SPLM leader Dr John Garang.

    Oh, Goodness!!!

    Why do responsible people e.g Salva Kiir always prefer to have their life hang in the balance,by traveling with unsafe cargo planes?Besides,why do our so called leaders always privilege "governmental trips" to Uganda and Kenya?Is Southern Sudan a dubious country,in which frangible East african leaders cannot be maturely hosted?I honestly dislike to jumpt to unthought conclusions,but I cannot rule out shady practices that has unfortunately become a major assignment for most of our outstanding leaders.

    Needless to repeatedly stress upon the fact that vulgar superstition is one vital component in our culture.As such,this incident should serve as a retention for wrong-doings of our leaders.Prehaps this very last warning should be considered as 1.an exclamation point and 2.an indication for our leaders to rather focus on the well-being of their people,instead of recklessly criss-crossing the skies of Africa for their own affluency.
