Unity state’s Angelina Teny leads in preliminary gubernatorial election results


April 16, 2010 (BENTIU, Unity state) – An independent candidate for gubernatorial position in the oil-rich Unity state is said to be leading by wide margin in preliminary counts as polling centers in the state’s nine counties slowly report in their respective results.

Angelina Teny

As ballot papers count began on Friday following the closure of polling stations on Thursday, reports from the state’s agents for Angelina Teny told Sudan Tribune that a number of counties that have already submitted results indicated that the independent female candidate is leading by a wide margin against other six contestants including the main challenger and incumbent caretaker governor, Taban Deng Gai.

The agents are part of the overall team that participate or witness the counts in every voting center in which two of her agents are posted at every center of the state’s 267 polling centers.

It is however premature to predict a land slide victory as most of the centers have not yet reported their counts to the state electoral commission headquarters in Bentiu.

Angelina Teny, the wife of Southern Sudan’s Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, has also been the state minister of Energy and Mining in the Khartoum-based Government of National Unity for the last five years.

Disowned by her party, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) after declaring her independent candidature, Teny in her manifesto explained that she was responding to “public outcry for a new leader in the state…and to save the office from falling into the hands of a different political party as the popularity of the current governor severely dwindled throughout the state.”

Educated in Great Britain, the 40+ years old gubernatorial contestant criticized the current state administration for failure to provide development services to the people for the last five years despite the presence of resources, which she described as "astonishing experience to every citizen of Unity state."

    The result are not yet announce;therefore, this independent candidate should not hope for the best at this point. The result of the entire State are not yet received.

      Dinka Boy,

      Don’t panic yet for losing the 2% from Taban Deng Gai. It looks like you don’t know how election results always come in. They come in bit by bit and this is why the reporter has correctly stated it as "preliminary results." But this preliminary results always give people a clue to the bigger picture. If 50 centers, for example, have given their results and one candidate is leading in 40 out of those 50 centers, then you have something to hope for.

      Angelina is widely expected to win because of her popularity in the state and people are fed up with Taban who was removed by party elections in 2008, but kept in office by his friend, Salvatore Kiir.

      This time he is out and go there to Juba as minister of something, not imposed governor any more.....

      Bravo Man-Teny (mother of Teny) for the people have spoken! I know you will change Unity state from its current regrettable situation to a brighter state it deserves........

        Wait here Gatwitch,

        Did you say " Man-Teny?" A Dinka term? This is why Dinka laguage must be made a national language. What the difference between it and national language if other south tribes like Nuer speak it so fluently? Congratulation Gatwetch.

          May be you are right in another way. What does Man-Teny mean in Dinka? I know you don’t speak or write in Dinka language because you are not a Dinka.

          Man-Teny means ’mother of Teny’ (Angelina’s first born son) who is currently a Masters’ Degree graduate from a very respected university in London.

          Yes, Dinka and Nuer are very close in their language and have many common words. Jokingly, the Nuer always say Dinka’s language is taken from the slipping of the tongue of Nuer.

          For example, when you say in Nuer "ci raan ben" which means the person has come, the Dinka will say "raan e ci ben," which is simply reversing how the Nuer says it. Can’t you see how close they are?

          However, this is not the topic for debate as you try to divert the topic. I know you are not a true Dinka but want to make the topic Dinka vs Nuer kind of thing.

          Angelina Teny is winning as shown by the preliminary results, what do you think, DOOR?

            Keep these corrections straight:

            Salva not Salvatore

            Mayardit not Miyardit

            Machar not Michar

              Please check the source of your concerns first. Salva means Salvatore my friend. Check the full name of Salva. It like saying Dan when you mean Daniel. I am a 100% sure about that. Ask others if you are not sure of how Salva’s full name looks like.

              I have NEVER written Machar as Michar. Look for your other sources please. It could be somebody else.

            What does Angelina deliver in minister of Mining and Energy? that she can claim of doing good if she become elected. the minister of mining and energy is more important then being a government of unity state because she was working for the whole of south Sudan. she totally have 100% failure in mining & energy and now just want to switch the job. why she is leaving 50% of south oil share to Arab and now come to talk about 2% of unity state share????

              Marco Nyak,

              You are totally lost in what you wanted to convey. Angelina Teny is not the minister of Energy and Mining in the South. The minister is John Luk Jok.

              Angelina Teny is the state minister of Energy and Mining in Khartoum, not in South Sudan. The 2% of oil revenue to Unity state came through her office in Khartoum to Bentiu. So she knows that Taban Deng used to get the 2% which he did not utilize for the benefit of the state citizens.

              So don’t get confused between ministry of Energy and Mining in the South and that of state minister of Energy and Mining in the North. I hope you are now clear.

                  Yes, Taban Deng Gai can be very good in dealing with ministerial job there in Juba because he is good at looking up to the President than looking down to the concerns of the citizens he governs. His best place is Juba as a minister.

            By the way Samuel had criticized for calling Angelina as beautiful.She is very beautifull.There is nothing wrong with calling somebody beautiful.Beauity is not something which we can be ashamed of!

              Mohamed. What is your point? Do you want to confirm there is no problem with the description of beauty? or do you have an Arab tactic of urging African ethnics to fight them selves as your ancestors did since 1950s? You are mistake your dream will be prove wrong soon, we are chaos only but action will not be exist because south Sudan now is became mature enough, we are polling our politicians legs to wake up Mr Ibn Abullahi, so give your self a break we are not serious to fight our selves, we know very well most of Arab from Sudan to middle east are dreaming, that south will fight it self after their independent then the north will take it by force again such as what was happen to Yamen El Junubia 1994.

              I can assure you that will not happen again ever ever and ever Mr. Mohamed, as in your information the only people who have understood Arab thoughts is the during the long term sharing citizenship, so be always alert of that even if you said this one is written in Quran the only one who will answer it is any ordinary southerner, because they have study Quran in their lives by force.

          Ya like Rebecca Nyandeng de Mabior was divorced from John Garang long time ago.

          I know that when you run out of sensible comments, you always resort to stupidity by coming up with evil lies to satisfy your jealousy about this Teny family made up of beautiful, handsome and intelligent personalities.

          The preliminary results have already indicated her winning. Where did you come up with your dictatorial command that she would not win?

          Learn to stick to truthful sensible comments.......

              If Rebecca Nyandeng, Awut Deng Achuil, Ann Itto have positions in government/party without husbands, then Angelina TENY as the name indicates is the wife of Dr. Riek Machar TENY.

              They got married since late 1970s, have lots of children and NEVER divorced.

              Please don’t be jealous to that extent of losing your mind!

              It doesn’t make sense when people read your foolish comments. Can you also say Salvatore Kiir has no wife or his wife has no husband?

                    Gatwitch bitch!

                    Mrs A. Teny’s lead in the preliminary gubernatorial race in Unity State reflects the wish of the people and as the saying goes "there is no smoke without fire" so that said, I guess the end result would’nt be any different unless something fishy happens (don’t get it twisted, I stand behind the peoples wish) The problem is that your" kiddish brains" tends to tribalise the whole issue, why are you jumping up and down, like a dog about to be thrown a bone? Is she your mother or is she going to serve in your house once elected? and who the fuck are you to question others about their indentity, whenever someone opposes your shallow and tribalistic views......huh?

                    People like you- might as well- set up a tribal webpage and drown your sorry asses in your miserable, illfated and doomed pattern of thinking.

                    I know what you are thinking....and yes I’m 110% Sossa, and to let you know a little secret " I used to date a Nuer girl and she is from a prominent family, her dad was the late Mr. Daniel Garwich Khan" so beware of what you freaking say....Mr littleman, or more beans will be spilled. I don’t blame you if you find it impossible to understand my lingo, the truth is that i’m from a higher level compared to ya. You are just an actor while I am the movie director or in other terms, you are a foot soldier while I’m the general who fucking orders your "flees ridden" ass around.

        you should figure out now what kind of people are on this board. your question is simple and logic that if Gatwech should use this kind of language against Nyadeng Garang, Awut Deng Acuil or another lady close to the writer, how could he feel? Then you find yourself in problem with tribalist who have no idea about the otherside of the coin.

        Every reader on this board feels sorry about this naive thinking that steam out of people capable of writing such kind of notes. We know who sleeps with who amongst those ladies in power, including their health status regarding HIV, but those are personal issues and may do South Sudanese harm rather than good.

        But Baka, you may be a Sudanese with a gut to say what you want to said when you want it. Don’t be intimidated by ignorants who are personally losing their noms and values. We South Sudanese have value to respect our ladies. What is hapening here is not less than madness. Taban Deng Gai himself can not support that language against Man-Teny let alone the rest.

        Dear friends

        It is welll known to everybody (at least reasonable bodies) that Angelina is going to win for governor of Unity State. And if she is needed by her people in US then congratulation to her! She is competent, well educated and partriotic enough for the seat. She spoke in my presence in 2002 when many people in southern Sudan did not know how to express their issues well to the public. In the high delegation led by the late Dr. John Garang, she was among the top five speakers whom their messages were appealing to the Sudanese masses in the diaspora. I know Taban has suffered from her rhetoric and pursuasion during campgain rallies. Congratulation if she win. No hatred please.

    This must be a special news for Unity State. This is what I been telling people that Taban will be wondering in Juba pretty soon for the people of Unity State have spoken loud and clear. It’s a big lesson to many who have abandoned their constituencies to appease others and practice corruption. Mr. Taban has forgotten where he came from and this will be a lesson learnt for all corrupted officials and unfortunately for our party, SPLM. You must pay attention when people speak and you protect their interest that’s why party flourish and scores numerous win streaks. Warnings been there but our PB failed to respect the decision of people. As election results rolls in, SPLM will have many surprises in days to come.

    As many of you know that I am 100% for Gov. Kuol and Pres. Kiir to win their elections. Forks, our country is changing for good and hope for many blessings ahead of our referendum.

      This was what every one expected even the SPLM rigged the ballots. Shame on Taban’s supporters.

      This indicates that the next government will be formed with the inclusiveness of Non-SPLM ticket runners.

          I always like your comments but today I have to correct you on something. Who says Dr. Riek will declare his presidency in these coming 45 days. Please Dr. Riek Machar is already the leader with Salvatore Kiir. He will give Kiir the chance up to the referendum.

          Yes, it is a big bravo to Angelina Teny as expected. I hope this time Salvatore Kiir will not save him using undemocratic means. Let him allow democracy its natural flow in Unity state. The people have spoken!!!

          Mrs. Teny was already declared as governor of the Nuer Genesis homeland (Bentiu/Liech State) by the citizens of that rich State even before the elections was kick off, but rejected by Mr. Slava Kiir for fear he (Slava) will lose the 2% he shares with Mr. Taban.

          Who are the big loser here if Mrs. Jany Teny wins, with no doubt Mr. Slava and his Orphans are going to be left in illusion.

          Mr Controller, Kim, Pal, Gatwech, and likes

          I like the way you guys just give adjective names randomly to people. And in fact, that show how low IQ you guys are indeed. Who tell you that Angelina Teny is queen? and who tell you that Governor Taban Deng Gai is coward and housekeeper for Dinka? are you really not having very low IQ.Who tell you than Bentiu is genesis? Haaaaaaaa. Wow!, I will go to run for any leadership position in Bentiu so that you can give me adjective names and any position with my wive.

        Dear Peter,

        Thank you for your comments. I do hope this so called Taban will fit in other position within the government of South Sudan because even if he is capable in governing people. I know how hard for being the top man in the state but giving away single inch of your state land to your enemy proves you that you do not deserve to lead the nation because we lost hundred thousand lives because of the land, look at Isreal, they elect their leader and when ever that leader comes closer to make a deal with arabs, they immediately kick him/her away because you can get any qualified person to lead but not the land.Let see the results and my best wishes to Angelina.

    Congratulation to Next Governor Queen Angelina Teny

    Thanks God Queen Angelina Teny is leading in wide margin.

    Let the housekeeper go back to his Master compound Salva Kiir in Juba.

    The Nuer Warriors have made clear that no more steal of their oil (lieth Kera NGunDeng) by stupid and coward Dinka through their nephew and housekeeper Taban Deng Gai.

                She is ’Man-Teny’ in Nuer, NOT ’Man-Ateny.’

                You missed it because of slipping of the tongue. Try it again next time.

                Good luck in learning the Nuer. You could be the last Dinka who doesn’t speak Nuer yet.

              KHARTOUM, Sudan — Elections just held in Sudan did not meet "international standards", EU monitors and former US president Jimmy Carter said on Saturday.

              The country’s first competitive elections in more than two decades "struggled to meet international standards" but did not entirely succeed, EU vote monitoring chief Veronique de Keyser said in Khartoum.

              Carter also said the elections "fall short" of meeting international standards.

              "Turnout is very high, 60 percent, but with significant deficiencies ... Theses elections did not reach international standards, not yet," De Kuyser told a news conference.

              "They have not reached them all but some of them," she said.

              But De Kuyser said the fact that there were domestic poll watchers proves the keenness for "democratic transformation."

              The election was a "major step that opens up democratic space in Sudan."

              Africa’s largest country held its first multi-party elections in two decades, but with the polls’ legitimacy brought into question by the withdrawal of the two main opponents to the re-election of President Omar al-Beshir.

              Three days of voting, which began on Sunday, were extended until Thursday because of a series of delays and logistical problems.

              Around 16 million registered Sudanese voters had been asked to choose their presidential, legislative and local representatives. Southerners also voted for the leader of the autonomous government of south Sudan.

              On Thursday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon hailed the election and urged all sides to conclude the electoral process without violence.

              But as the counting continued, one top UN official in the south of the country warned on Friday that the impoverished region faced a major food crisis that could effect millions of people.

              "We have a very general problem of food insecurity across all of southern Sudan," Lisa Grande, the UN Deputy Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Juba, south Sudan, told AFP.

              "We are looking at a situation where 4.3 million people require some forms of food assistance during the year," she said.

              Failed harvests, people displaced for security reasons and rising food prices have all combined to create a "humanitarian perfect storm," Grande said.

              Seven out of the 10 southern states were in trouble, she added.

              "What we are avoiding is a free fall, when people are dying in mass. We are in a situation of struggle. We are at the break," Grande warned.

              Voting proceeded calmly in most places, but the results could ignite tensions in more contested areas, particularly in south Sudan.

              De Kuyser said there were "more irregularities in the south than the north".

              The election was seen as a bid to restore Beshir’s stature after he was indicted by the International Criminal Court in March 2009 for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in the western region of Darfur.

              An aide to Beshir, Nafie Ali Nafie, said on Thursday that Beshir’s re-election would prove allegations against him are "false."

                Dear readers,

                How could you expect the elections to be of Western standard when it is the first one after 24 years? And besides South Sudan’s 90% of population is illiterate and it is their first time to vote, monitor voting or facilitate polling.

                It is irrational for any observer to think that it can be of western standard overnight.

                At least it was peaceful for now and very successful. Let us congratulate ourselves. In USA during the last term of President Bush’s re-election, it took alot of rigging here in Florida where Bush’s brother was the governor. So where is such a standard after 200 years of independence where elections take place in every four years compared to 24 years in Sudan?

                Leave us alone!!!
