March 15, 2012 (JUBA) - South Sudan president Salva Kiir on Thursday announced the exclusion of Northern Bahr el Ghazal state from a nationwide disarmament exercise, reportedly because the area has been able to maintain peace and stability.

“I know you have guns but I will not remove them from you because I know the purpose of holding them,” Kiir reportedly told the gathering, praising the state governor, Paul Malong Awan, for bringing about change.

President Kiir was speaking at Awan’s swearing-in ceremony in the state capital, Aweil, which was broadcast on South Sudan Television on Thursday.

He took an oath of office in fulfilment of the transitional constitutional requirement demanding all the ten state governors to be sworn in again after the national justice ministry certified the state constitutions.

At the occasion Kiir accused the ruling party of his neighbouring Sudan of trying to create “imminent conflict” which is not in the interest of either of nations.

“We have all tested war and we know the effects and lesson we have learned from it. If there was something good we should have all seen. But I think you know what war has done to our people”, said Kiir.

He also urged citizens to be united as “if we allow ourselves to be divided we shall fall”, and that South Sudan’s “diversity is our strength”

He urged those people who have not taken advantage of the arms amnesty to do so.

Kiir opened a disarmament programme in troubled Jonglei state on Monday, which collected 4,000 rifles on its first day.

The US and UN praised the disarmament programmes but warned that the processes may become violent – Juba has been using aggressive rhetoric.

    "South Sudan president Salva Kiir on Thursday announced the exclusion of Northern Bahr el Ghazal state from a nationwide disarmament exercise, reportedly because the area has been able to maintain peace and stability" Why is that other area be excluded from the disarmament? Though they maintained peace they should disarmed. This is an example where other states are going to reject to be disarmed.

      I agree with the president because,NBG people are at the wild border of sudan.Misserya are posing a big threat to NBG citizens, therefore they should allow to have their weapons.And one is if you have your with a great responsibilities,no need take it but the govenment have register it and know who own it,it is very simple,this disarmament came because nuer and murle misusing their guns by killing

However, if you agree with the President’s decision, can you tell me what contigence plan the President has if arms related incidents errupt in NBEG? You have seen in other States.

        Bullshit!this is the problem with a kind of a leader who has little education or has not been in campus(college).Is disarmament only needed in south when we see the negativity of armament.If one is to ask why it was done in equatoria yet it is the most peaceful region in south?OK if it is to be assumed that he is considering the risk of the northern neighbors, then what will be the use of our army

      The reason why Mr.President excluded NBEGS in disarmament that is taking place now in the other parts of S.S,it is coz the citizens of Aweil don’t have any problem with their neighboring communities.They are sharing all the boundries peacefully and such good co-existence can encouraging president to be proud of us in Aweil and i hope Aweil will be an exampler to other comms for their good stay.

          President Kiir is 100% wrong. Northern Bahr el Ghazal shares borders with Warrap state and if it is not disarmed, then those of Warrap will hide their guns there. Is that the plan? And even if they are peaceful, is it legal for them to illegally hold weapons until one day they start to kill themselves and you wake up to disarm them? Oh, my God!

Also, when the Messiriya captured NBG land in 2008 from SPLA and kill many of soldiers the NBG citizen who have gun collected themselves and kill 800 Messiriya and took NBG land back. So,president knows what help S Sudan.

This is the problem, this exclusion of NBEG should have been discussed in the Parliment and voted on. Before we started to support our President’s discision, we have to think of the phrase, "comprehensive Disarmment" in south Sudan. This means no inche should be left armed. There is ?

    disarmament should be national and equal, you can’t exclude one state from the other for many reasons.

    if you leave Aweil out of the process the weapons will eventually spread from there back into other states. and what will Kiir say in the future if any conflict arises in Aweil? this is a perfect display of Kiir’s lack of education.

    Mr president is right, these pple of NBEG are responsible pple like their WBEG,WES, EES counterparts. The only mistake is that he was not suppose to say that they are excluded from disarmament as if they have guns.

        Sir King, but nobody here denies that awil is peaceful. just because you’re peaceful doesnt mean disarmament shouldnt take place in your land. You are looking at this from the wrong perspective, comprehensive disarmement is not picking out the bad areas and good areas but its preventing any possible gun killings. If you leave NBEG out the disarmement is not comprehensive. All should be equal.

So, for Aweil, they have millions of guns but you can’t find a brother hunting a brother or a cattle herder hunting other cattle herder.

      Now the commentators are quickly mention some reasons as they are in the border to Masseriya of Sudan; what about south Sudan army in this area? What about other area like unity state upper Nile and western Bahr el Ghazal? This man Salva Kiir will regret later.

    I don’t understand the point people disagree with president Kiir. Aweil people never attack any community with gun or attack themselves with guns. The neghbour community never attack Aweil community with gun either. So, why people need Aweil community to be disarm. Most countries this world allow guns for their citizen when they don’t harm each other. The govt couldn’t disarm if no harm occured.

      You are rite coz even if they are peaceful people they will sell their guns out to those who need it for killing. I don’t expect my dear president to say that.

    Congratulations to the Aweilian, you have shown your responsibility to the rest of ROSS’s states. Keep it up and do more. Second thing, I know responsibility of holding gun is the periority and nothing more than that in this crucial time. Northern Bhar el Ghazal is bordering with the North Sudan, so they should be allow to holds their guns if there are any untill the right time for disarment later

      Haha,haha,hahaha, big hat for nothing, can a real thinker say this? NBG is peaceful so are exempt from national disarmament exercise. Kiir is the most idiot in South Sudan. Now what is a difference between kiir and Dinka dominated SPLA and George Bol? What is a prove of them peaceful, and even though are peaceful, does it sound really good the president leaves guns in his own homewhile disarmingot

    Kiir think, if he leave NBG without disarmament is…. they will keep him in office for ten years which is not... What mattering me. The matter is … the game time is not yet that is the matter now. G Bol knows that during 1991. There was no guns but the result was perfect which indicate the guns are not matter just man braveness is matter.

        This presidentleaves the guns to Denka NBG because he is originall from NBG in Marial bai.All States should be the same as he is a president of all state and all tribes.If it is being in the border,what about Unity and Upper Nile States?Think again the president of South Sudan.It may bring problems

          RUACH,i disagree with you at one thing,first Kiir is not from Aweil,he is from Awan Chan Nyiel which is in Warap state.also you have to know that NBG is not hurt any community within south sudan and we don,t have any problem at all with any tribe wherever you from NUER,MURLE,MADI and so on we are all from south sudan please let be brothers and sisters in this beautiful of ours.

            Kiir is originally from Nyamlel-Marialbai,but his grand fathers moved long time ago to Warrap.I know Malual Jier-Nyang are the most peaceful Dinka,but our societies are suffering from hunger which may force them one day to sell them illigally to Warrap n kill Bentiu-Nuer or Lake State.The president should ’ve to think twice.What about SPLA?SPLA should protect them from Arabs.

                Come on BlackNoah. The issue of South Sudan is not one tribe’s issue even those tribes that seems to be peace are not peaceful. We should not take a turn where we should be disrespectful to one another’s tribe please. I think we are educated people and that’s mean we should be professional when expressing our views. Please this word, Fuck" is out of text please.I respect your views but words choic

    Dear readers and all South Sudanese, I’m glad to take this opportunity to be back on ST. I used to be an active participant on this website. I stopped commenting on this website due to the nature we take issues that are most crucial to our country. I’m sure we love being an independent country, but taking national issues to be tribal and at other times personal make no sense.

  • 17 March 2012 05:06, by Peter Nhiany

    The reason why I said in my first comment to this article that taking national issues tribal and personal is due to so many finger pointing I have read in most comments to this article. We have bigger issues and that issue is the double standard the President has set to exclude one state from disarmment. That is what we should question and leave out whether Nuer or Dinka are food lovers and so o

      Hi Peter,
      Thank you for pointing this out. Some people here are unable to hold political discussions without taking it tribal or personal. discussions are discussions and we are all entitled to our opinion. i don’t like the double standards posed by the president either. Thank you.
