Gen. Tanginye becomes latest southern figure to defect to SPLM


October 14, 2010 (JUBA) – A senior army general previously incorporated into the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF), has arrived in Juba for the first time since 2006 to announce that he is joining the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), which controls the South of the country.

Gabriel Tanginye, a former militia commander and current ranking official in the northern Sudanese army arrives in the southern capital Juba, southern Sudan on a plane from Khartoum on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010 (AP)

Gabriel Tangginya who has been accused of inciting violence against the semi-autonomous Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), announced his defection to the ex-Southern rebel group on Thursday after meetings with GoSS President Salva Kiir.

The surprise move followed last week’s amnesty extended by Kiir to Tangginya and other armed groups (OAGs) operating in south Sudan.

Dressed in a gray shirt, Tangginya pledged full commitment to the SPLM leadership, and urged southerners to work together for a common goal. He was accompanied by five of his aides.

Shortly after Tangginya’s arrival at Juba International Airport from Khartoum he visited the SPLA General Headquarters at Bilpam, about two miles away from Juba town, in an army convoy amidst tight security.

He held a press conference at the airport in which he informed the press that he was responding to the call by Kiir, and called on all the other armed groups to reconcile themselves with his government.

Kiir and Tangginya, hugged each other in a meeting at the Presidents office in a sign of reconciliation.

The former defector told journalists in Juba that he was impressed with the progress made by the southern government in the last five years since the north-south peace agreement.

According to Tangginya, troops loyal to him will soon be integrated into the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) - the former rebels who are now the official southern army.

However, he said that they are still in dialogue with GOSS/SPLA on how they can work together but stressed that he will not return to Khartoum.

His defection comes just days after another senior member of the NCP political bureau joined the SPLM together with other key figures from the Khartoum-based party headed by president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir.

Alison Magaya, who previously served in various capacities within the Government of National Unity (GoNU), told journalists that he and others joined the NCP for a mission and that it has now been fulfilled.

Tangginya told the leaders of the southern political parties present that southern Sudanese needed to be united to face the challenges ahead in the referendum process for the common destiny of the region.

He underscored that the exercise of self-determination in the referendum by the people of southern Sudan should be conducted in an atmosphere of unity among the people so that it is not violated by Khartoum.

He also commended President Kiir for his declared amnesty to all the armed groups, assuring that all the other senior officers who have remained behind were in the process of reconciling themselves with the southern government.

Tangginye, who hails from Jonglei state like Gen. George Athor Deng, another rebelled senior SPLA officer, told the conference that both Gen. Athor and Gen. Gordon Koang Chol, had already voiced their readiness to come to Juba and rejoin the political system.

He said he was sent ahead to prepare the ground for their imminent arrival to Juba, adding that a committee has been set up between the SPLA and the OAGs for that purpose.

The former renegade who was accused twice of causing violence in Malakal town in 2006 and 2008, which left over 300 people dead, said his group was ready to leave behind all past differences and focus on the soon to be determined destiny of southern Sudan.

The leadership of GoSS has stepped up the effort to reconcile with all the southern Sudanese political parties and armed groups. It is aiming to create a unified voice for a secure, free, fair and transparent conduct of the referendum on independence of the region.

The recent surfacing of defected generals comes at a time when all the leaders of the Southern Sudan political parties as well as Southern Sudanese leaders in northern political parties converged in Juba to reach a consensus on the future of the region.

Around 25 political parties have taken part in the conference which was called for by the President, Salva Kiir, in what many observers described as the second most important gathering to that of Juba Convention of 1947.

A day before the convening of the all-party conference, the chairman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement for Democratic Change (SPLM-DC), Lam Akol, met with with President Kiir, his rival during the April elections.

Akol said it was important to leave behind all the political differences and focus on achieving the destiny of the people of southern Sudan.

Chaired by the Vice President and SPLM Deputy Chairman, Riek Machar , the leaders of the 25 political parties at the conference on Wednesday and Thursday deliberated on their respective position papers.

The debates that follow may continue until Friday or Saturday, from which resolutions and recommendations shall be drawn as a political consensus on the referendum and post-referendum issues.

    South Sudan (Wec Deang) oyeee!

    Bravo President Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit and Gen. Gabriel Tanginye,

    I congratulate the GOSS leadership for wise strategic thinking and working hard this time to unite all the political forces as well as other armed groups before the referendum. Don’t give any chance to NCP to divide our people this time. Unite our people to face the very NCP’s northern government.

    I congratulate Gen. Tanginye for his wise words and assurance that Gen. Gordon Kong and Gen. George Athor plus the rest of their officers and men are also ready to go to Juba any time from now.

    Well, it looks like Prophet Ngundeng Bong’s prophecies which he prophesied more than 100 years ago are coming to fulfillment when he predicted that in the last days when South Sudan independence is near he would reunite “all the islands of South Sudanese.”

    For those of you who did not follow the songs of prophecies by Ngundeng in Nuer language he predicted the unity by saying “maate dhuooli kun diaal.” ‘Dhuooli’in Nuer translates ‘Islands’ in English but it was just a parable because Ngundeng did not mean physical Islands as such. By Islands he meant political parties or factions.

    And he continued that ‘cia ben pal gaat ka diaal enga bi nga ngico cang ni Ngok bi ke toang cuare dual ke beeri marol.’ In English it says “You have all come together and pray all my children, who will know who is who, even Ngok will be part of the building, don’t be afraid of the flags of the North.”

    So this is now happening exactly in the last days around the referendum on the breakup of Sudan as Ngundeng predicted.

    However, be prepared also for something else which Ngundeng also predicted to happen which I don’t want to monger about.

    Those who will try to resist the unity of the people of the South or separation of the South from the North will never succeed. It is a miraculous move by South Sudanese leaders in their hearts whispered to them by God to reunite this time and achieve their predestined destiny by God, which is the independence of South Sudan.

    Long live the vision of self-determination!
    Long live South Sudan independence!
    Victory is certain on 9th January 2011!

      Congratulation to South Sudanese for recounciliation. Our plagued was pointing guns to ourselves, now if we unite ourselves like we are bout to, nothing will shake Southern Sudan. My conclusion is that if these guys are coming back to SPLA, South Sudan is ready for the war declared by Northern part of the country.

      Some people respond to my friendly comments aggressively making it more tribalic thing. Those of Gatwech and co. should learn that the struggle was not about Nuer or Nyundeng. Ngundeng don’t even know where Dinka start and end, and he don’t even know the geographic area covered by south Sudan. He was just a moron and stop mentioning his name.

        Hey Gatjang,

        I loves your comment my dear. Gatwech is just a kind of a person who emerged and tried to learn things in manner to develop his brain sensors. If Gatwech was a sophisticated person who accepted his wrongdoers, then he should praise Dinka for that Half-Education he had in his "Bonehead" minded. There is a saying said that "Little Education is a disease itself".

      You are a pathetic liar. When ever an event had occurred you jump in and talk about Ngundeng evil prophecies. The need for south sudanese to have consensus has no connection with Ngundeng.

      Traitors need to be forgiven and history will never forgive them. All traitors are now enjoying what they worked against during the struggle.

    I bet there is something more sinister about this sudden defection to the SPLM. Is it part of an elaborate plan by the NCP security apparatus to encourage fake defections and destroy South from within using their own paid agents? I hope the SPLA is vigilant against such ill-intentioned plan.

      You are a negative sour seed among the people of South Sudan. Are you not happy with the defection of Tanginye?

      Last time you declared yourself as supporter of rebel George Athor, will you not encourage him to rejoin the SPLA? If Athor rejoins the SPLA tomorrow, will you also call it a fake defection planned by NCP?

      I know you are one of southerners who have chronic inferiority complex that every decision is made by Jallaba and that southerners are unable to think. These are the same people who thought that the call for self-determination was also planned by NCP. Common people, don’t belittle us!

      When Gen. Paulino Matip Nhial rejoined the SPLA in early 2006, was it a plan by NCP?

      Don’t be jealous that this strong military man is rejoining the southern army. Be glad like the rest of us and celebrate!

          Where did I mention tribalism, ya Mr. whoever? You are the very NCP agents who are against the unity of the South. Don’t pretend to be true southerners. A true southerner would not think shallow like that.

          You know it was President Kiir who declared amnesty. Didn’t you know that? Was it Bashir who first told them to go to Juba, or was it Kiir who called them to Juba? If it was Kiir, then where did the NCP plan came in?

          Please believe in our brains then for you to continue believing that NCP is always to decide for us. You are suffering from inferiority complex!!! Stop it.

      I defintely agreed with you bro,there is actually something very fishy about their coming back.A group of saboteurs teaming up with their mastermind right behind them may bring to an end the only hope of Southern Sudanese if president Salva is going to be oblivious about their past acts.the same deed-materialism- within them that initially overwhelmingly driven them away from the same SPLA/SPLM will never fade away, but will always resurfaces whenever they feel disatisfied with their allocated jobs

    Dear President Kiir,

    Thank you very much Mr. President for your pure and humble heart. my sincere advice to you, although I’m not your political advisor is that, Forgive all the enemies of Southern Sudan but never forget the horrible acts of wanton they have inflicted on our innocent people including members of SPLM/SPLA before and after the signing of Sudan’s CPA. They have now realize what the SPLM/SPLA genuine business of liberating South Sudan from it traditional enemies.

    I mean to say that, they must be held accountable for all countless human rights violations they have done to our civilians. All I’m advocating is justice must be serve. The blood of our people must be washed out of their hands one by one.

      Be patient, okay? There are things predistined by God to happen in the same way they have been happening throughout our struggle. They have cons and pros, but none of us including the actors will never explain to us why because they are above their will.

      This is indeed a very wonderful moved ever made by Goss.If those who have defected before came back to SPLA,then why can’t Gen.Tanginye and many others including George Athor.However,the question remain hanging that,for how long shall we continue awarding people for doing crime and punish those who did no crime by giving their rank away? Again the GOSS need to be very careful handling these responses.It could be another NCP trick to make themselves close to Juba so that cofusion about how and where to fit those newly joint individual within GOSS range of ranks would be a focus,than issues to do with referadum or self-independence.

      If Kiir forgives them then he also forgets whatever wrong they could have done at different times in the past, if at all. If he did not forget, then why forgive them in the first place anyway? you are insane! you should have used your common sense on this.

      SPLM/A is fake because they have abandoned their sighted-vision of united Sudan, the unionist’s ideologies faded away with the late chairman, Dr. Garang.

      If they are to be help accountable, and based on tribal prejudices then that will make it a row between Your tribe and Naath community and you will regret the dire consequences of that attempt. Its a no-go zone! my friendship.

    Dear Southerners.

    The surprise visit of Gen. Tanginya can make every southerners to feel that there is abit of peace in the southern Sudan especaily in Upper Nile & Jonglei States.
    If Gen. Tanginya come in faith following amnesty given by GoSS President Gen.H.E Maryadit is fine.But my question is How much can we trust in Gen.Tanginya this should be an answer to every one of us.And my advice to Gen Tanginya Plus the a companying officers with him to Juba yesterday on SSTV,please think twice for this new southerners generation which are coming now,join hands with your president H.E Maryadit to finish the remaining implementation of the CPA.God Bless you All.

      Longwaga or what ever your name is, Gen. Gabriel Gatwich Chan, famously known as Tanginye is wise and more intelligent than you. You are just a pseudo-educated who cannot even look beyond his little nose, you are such a shame to South Sudan intellectuals! he is just waving at those who went to the airport to receive him. And FYI he is not coming from "campaign trial" there is no campaign trial, there is only campaign trail, you misfire, my friend! Shape your English dude.

      Who did not kill in Sudan or South Sudan in particular? tell me, even Kiir killed people; in fact he is the one who killed the 300 you mentioned above because if he had not illegally ordered that SPLA JIU deputy commander to kill Gabriel Tang, those people would have not perished, so Tang only acted in self-defense. He never attacked SPLA barrack in two incidents, right from the first incident that took place on November 26 2006 and February 2009 last year.

      So if there are people to face justice, Kiir would be the first and then he follows and only then that he can defend himself in the court of law.

      NB: Sudan Tribune is repeatedly making errors in reporting because they are saying "2006 and 2008" its 2006 and 2009.

      That is what you don’t get, Isaac. Those soldiers trained by SAF are highly trained and are more professionals than our ill-trained SPLA, so that is a fallacious statement you made. Your are wrong, go back to the drawing board my friend. Things were not getting tough for him, he was comfortable but Kiir went to Khartoum and begged him several times to unite ranks with SPLA and he only heeded the call after long consultative meetings with his aides as well as some members of the SPLM. Bashir likes him so much because he is a very good fighter, and that is why when he told Bashir that time has come for him to come back to the South, he (Bashir) shed tears and said he is finished.

      Kiir sensed the bitter war that is now imminent between South and the North and that is why he had to reconcile with these brave senior army officers like Tanginye and George Athor before the ticking time bomb.

                  Lam extremely shocked to read on this magnificently great website that a man who have ruthlessly murdered 300 innocent and peace-loving people in Upper Nile, City of Malakal in 2006 and 2008 was graciously welcomed in Juba. Folks, we, the people of Southern Sudan are developing very bad habit. By pardoning this hardened criminal, Mr. President, you are dircetly or indirectly condoning this man’s horrible and horrendous crimes.
                  My question to the president of Southern Sudan is this: What will this criminal thug brings to your Government? In my opinion Mr. President, Gabriel Tanyinye brings nothing with him rather than thuggish and murderous ideas to your government.
                  Mr. President be careful not to let this hardened criminal get you.
                  Indeed, Mr. President, you are indirectly killing yourself if you surronded yourself with thuggish criminals.
                  Furthermore, Mr.President, you are the last hope of the people of Southern Sudan. Please, donot let these degenerated, of the degenerated thugs harm you.
                  May almighty God creator of Heaven and Earth bless the long-suffering people of Southern Sudan and guided them into the promised land of freedom, liberty, equality and social justice in the upcoming Self-determination Referendum.

              Joseph, how do you define the word "militia"? I have realized that you will never understand my dialects because i can see you are experiencing language difficulties as you struggle to express yourself. they were given positions based on what they knew or know because they are properly trained, so your purported assertion that they were given those ranks so as to appease them or cool the situation is a baseless claim that does not deserve my response.

              Are you claiming to be more educated than them when you alleged that they are illiterates; or because you are a pseudo-educated you think you are only most educated South Sudan has ever had. If you don’t know, 80% composition of SPLA is illiterate or you are saying one illiterate is more important than the other! this is a fallacious argument that does hold water.

              Please don’t start a war only to cry loud later when we go physical with you guys. I thought by this time you should have learned unforgettable lesson from the past. Don’t instigate and incite only to run abroad later when the push comes to show. you have used a wrong word here, this monotonous is not suitable or applicable here so please withdraw this, go back to the drawing board!

                    Thank you Mr.Abuk Nhial.

                    You are right in your comment. I thought that Salva Kiir Miyardit is a hero, but in reality he is a coward leader whom I have never seen in my life. I’M doubt about the welcoming of Tanginye to join the others SPLA Generals whom he been fought with them for many times. If Salva Kiir Miyardit welcome Tanginye, then why not General Kuwach Miakuei of Dinka Aweil who had spared his life in the movement?

                    Salva Kiir is a coward!

    This is a ridiculous event!. Southern Sudan is like a prostitute house were anyone can come and meet with her in-loves one and gone away. In a little while of the riot which took out in the City of Malakal about Gabriel Tanginye who was accused of empowering the move of the Northern Sudan Government, today it has appeared that Tanginye is the worthy General to be incorporated in the line of Southern Sudan Generals.

    In this point, what is the different between Tanginye and General George Athor Deng who defected in an April Election between his State-mate General Kuol Minyang Juuk? If Tanyinye is incorporated and welcome by Salva Kiir Miyardit, then Salva Kiir Miyardit is just respecting or dealing with the one whom he afraid. I valued this Government of Southern Sudan as a Government under no rule or constitutions. What motivated Salva Kiir Miyardit to accept Tanginye as one of the General in the SPLA? Salva Kiir Miyardit think that he will take this resposibility of being a Southern Sudan President, but in later date, he will no hold it anymore.

    It is true and event itself can tell that it is time for the Rebels who defected from the SPLM/SPLA to rule. If anyone doubt about this, then take example of Dr.Riek Machar Teny, He was a rebel and now he is a Vice President of Southern. James Gatdet Yak was a rebel and now he is One of General in the SPLA. Paulino Matiip Nhial was one of the rebel and now he is one of the Deputy Chief of Staff in the SPLA. There are so many more just to mention. So in this way, it mean that those General of the SPLA who fought are now become useless in eyes of Salva Kiiir Mayardit.

    Now I agree that whoever rebel in the SPLM/SPLA is right to do it so because this Government of Southern Sudan is just like three year-old-babies who are left to take care of each other. This is exactly what is happening here in the Administration of Salva Kiir Miyardit. Those thirst-hearted Nuer people who drink the blood of the insant people are now the people who are enjoying the fruit of the CPA. Shame on this Community so call Nuer and including Salva Kiir Miyardit himself. Today, I do really understand the history from DINKA which said in DINKA language that " Akoon ha ye roor nook ku nah le ke bi diar ben thaal". In Nuer language, it is said that "Guor la naak ke je heh wuni ke ba thaal maani. That is what happening now. Dinka fought with Arabs, Equatorian and Nuer, but now Nuer are enjoying it. Shame and shame.

    Hey Idiot Gatwech,

    Forget about telling us Ngundeng Bong. Who is Ngundeng Bong? What Ngundeng Bong tell to Nuer People was that all Nuer people will rebel in everything and they will be the Fouth class not even third, Second nor First.

      It looks like you sons of serpents have not yet learnt about Ngundeng’s prophecies. Some occured and you cried, but forgot quickly. More are coming!

      He predicted the ten states and here you have them. But because your minds are clouded with corruption and jealousy, you deny them. But this will not prevent all of them from happening.

      This is why I relax because I know none of you will stop them from occuring. You will only be crying and knashing your teeth when something you dislike happens and also smile when finally his prediction for independent state occurs soon.

      You are a non-believer!

        If you are not fool in mind, what do you think Ngundeng Bong’s prophecies have to do with the Independent of Southern Sudan? Where were Ngundeng Bong during the war time? People like you are just the people who can just follow people when he sees the people runing and he started running too and then later he tried to argument with people without reason.

        Back in the days of the war between SPLA and Northern Sudan Government, all Nuer people started surrendering themselvs to the hand of Arab just because of the weaken heart and big hearted they have in common. This happened because in Ngundeng Bong prophecy he said that "there will be one of the tribe in Southern Sudan who will run away and make themselves as slaves in hand of an enemy". They will confuse themselves knowing no one whom to join, but at later stage they will realize that they are in wrong figure and all of them will come back and join the Movement one by one. In addition, he mentioned that most of the people who will join the Movement are the rebels and within the same tribe. Now, it happen in Nuer tribe and that is true.

        This is one of the prophecy which I believe in Ngundeng Bong tales. They rests of the others Ngundeng Bong’s prophecies are just only catch-up events in which Nuer people want to build up themselves from their mistakes which they have done. Gatwech, I can not talk to you my dear because I’m your pillar. Anyway,I can said that enjoy this CPA and I will be behind you. When war come, let me know, but continue eating the benefit of the CPA. I hope next time you will not rebel again.
        Shame on you Gatwech. You are a "shallow minded wedlock child" born by unkown parent. Grow up in hand of Dinka and now pretended himself that he know anything about his master. Gatwech, truely speaking, you will remain as a fouth class Citizen of Southern Sudan my dear.

          Don’t be half believer! Ahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.................

          May be that community you talked of as predicted by Ngundeng to be handed over to the hands of Jallaba (enemy) is Dinka of Abyei, fool!

          so, you now believe in some of Ngundeng’s prophecies and decide to refuse some? Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..........................This is a fool’s selective way of prophecies. You better believe all of them or reject all of them.

    Great Move!
    If others can unite why not us?

    Now sharing of responsibilities is highly needed, should not be only attached to SPLA’s Politicians alone, who ever is eligible to form his party under South Sudan Political Parties Act should be allowed and could not be terrorized by SPLA’S gun barrel.
    Thank for those who joined if they have joined in good faith.
