South Sudan VP confirms apology for Bor Massacre


April 3, 2012 (BOR) - South Sudan’s vice president, Riek Machar, confirmed his apology for his 1991 defection from Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M), which led to the killing of thousands of people from Dinka Bor ethnic group.

“So those, of us, who have survived and who seen painful things during the war, we need to kick off the process of national reconciliation”, Machar said in Bor on Tuesday during a peace workshop held to reconcile the warring ethnic groups in Jonglei state

Before a 2005 peace deal, which led to the establishment of the state of South Sudan in July 2011, the SPLA were a rebel group fighting Khartoum. They were led by the late John Garang, who died in helicopter crash in 2005.

In 1991 there was disagreement between Garang and Machar and Lam Akol, who held senior positions in the rebel group. In August that year the two formed SPLA-Nasir - after the area where they were based - with the intention of becoming the main faction of the SPLA and deposing Garang.

Despite attempting to attract support from across South Sudan the splinter group on managed to attract significant support from Machar’s Nuer tribe as well as some other smaller groups including Akol’s Shilluk tribe in Upper Nile.

On 15 November 1991 Machar’s forces attacked the Bor area of Jonglei, the home of John Garang’s Dinka Bor ethnic group, in what became known as the Bor massacre, with hundreds reportedly killed and thousands displaced.

Machar rejoined the SPLA/M in 2002 and in 2005 after Garang’s death he was appointed to the Vice President of South Sudan by Salva Kiir who had been the number two in the movement up to that point.

Machar first apologised for his part in the Bor Massacre in August 2011 when addressing community leaders in Juba on the 20 year anniversary of his defection to form SPLA-Nasir.
Machar said that his apology would bring unity to the Dinka and Nuer tribes. Tribalism is still a major issues in South Sudan, illustrated recently with clashes between Dinka students and those from Central Equatoria at Juba University last week.

“Giving an apology is the best way of bringing in peace. We don’t want to pass these painful things to our children. We want them to be living in a peaceful and democratic state in South Sudan,” said Machar.

The main conflict in Jonglei since 2005 has been between the Nuer and Murle ethnic groups, with the Dinka reportedly taking part in the recent raids against the Murle alongside the Nuer.

In January the UN estimated that from December 2011 the conflict caused the displacement of 120,000 people.

    Up to this junction, I would like to say to ever Southerner to forgive our vice president no matter how painful the grudges are! Everybody does wrong including God, the creator HIMSELF. We should forgive Machar for peace to prevail amongst our poor citizens.
    Stay blessed Everyone!

      In Africa culture, there is something called forgiveness because people are confused and doom, but in western countries, there is no place or any crimes to be forgiven. How in the hell can we forgive this criminal his crimes since he accepted them?

            My dear, there is no human being in this world that is an island. Bor massacre happened to test the spirit of struggle but if the intiator of the massacre (Dr. Riek)comes forwards and say sorry for what had happened. To me, it is acceptable and appreciated because Bor massacre happened for a reason otherwise God could haven’t allow it.I argue Machar to sell it to all Bom

              Dr. Riek Machar has decided to apologize at the time of his choosing after Garang’s death because he is the only brain left and should apologize on behalf of every one including late Garang. You better accept his voluntary offer of apology otherwise you will just be complaining for generations to come. And don’t provoke the Lou Nuer again. Accept unconditional peace among communities of Republic.

                Riek brought you independence through his self determination of 1991. It is like rejecting Jesus after sacrificing for your sins. Riek corrected Garang’s united Sudan vision and guess who won. Even Garang was converted by Riek before his death in 2005 and that is why he copied KPA of 1997 to CPA of 2005. Stop tribal hatred which blinds you. The world only sees your tribal hatred in your comments.

                  Any one or community set against the Nuer will always fight a loosing battle for sure. The Nuer are there to stay in South Sudan until Jesus comes. Whether you go to hell or heaven you will also find the Nuer in both places. The best thing is to learn to love the Nuer and understand their vision on South Sudan. Without Dr. Machar’s vision we would still be fighting a silly war to keep Sudan united

                      Dr.Riek Machar Teny is an Engineer by profession not a politician. I think he should stop acting like one because when he was tasked with commanding a small SPLA unit in Naser in 1991, he misfired.

                      He wanted to apply his rotten Engineering principle in politics saying we are fighting for South Sudan. Dr. Garang knew that but to get the Support of Nubian, fur,and International Community,

He would had right to say we have the South.But he decided to fight another gorrilla, this is the most stupid part of it. And Dr. Garang Said that history will never forgive him. So let the man face the history. As for Bor Community only God knows.

                  Don’t throw out an argument in which you can’t go a distant to defense. The independent of the Republic came when the SPLA successfully engage the SAF in to a draw, and the successful rally of the international community behind the people’s struggle which emanate to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

                  His apology can’t make him a PRESIDENT at all like he wish. He’s good for VP to spread NUER’s stingy reputation and that apology of looting civilians to sound louder to the world yet. SPLA wasnt formed by NYAGAT to be lead by NYAGAT who failed to function in it. You’re second big community of lawless and failure. We need ur apology in forum here or curse on nuer must continued.

                    What I am seeing here is a compagning for further position but no sensible south sudanese will accept a criminal to be his president. if that happen then s.sudan will be no different from sudan - a country were law don’t stand alone!!

I doubt the ability of those who contradicted your apology. we need to move on and rebuild our country. That will be the best apology to loyalists: your comrades of whom you betrayed during the war.

        A part from all this, Machar was not the one who killed Bor, if the we need the truth to reveal the community who kill each other should do this themselves.

        Nuer community need to look at this logically, Machar is not serious about this. Hundred of thousands of SPLA officials from Nuer were murdered in 1991, who is going to apology on behalf of them? Kuol Manyaang has killed about 271 people.

          Dr. Riak is a nationalist. He is forgiven both in heaven and on earth. Take a look of what is doing at the moment, he is doing all that he could to make sure South Sudan at this time is in peace but not in pieces. To those who are against his apology, remember, remembering wrong can break up a friendship. Even bible tells us that we should forgive a person by 70 x 7.

        These are the right people and leaders we need in South Sudan. Each person is reliable to make mistake except God. If all leaders can apologize, then we have right leaders at their right places provided that they don’t repeat the same in the future. So, VP apology is meaningful and can now walk freely and make friends with Bor people.

      Dr Teny stated this apology to the nation and Bor community for the sake of peace and unity amongst our nation.
      So there is no doubt that Dr Riek can not apologize for the cause of 1991 split it was the right caused and the right vision the principle of Self-determination for the people South Sudan was the right choice in our longer struggle.
      No one can deny this.

      “Giving an apology is the best way of bringing in peace. We don’t want to pass these painful things to our children. We want them to be living in a peaceful and democratic state in South Sudan,” said Machar.

            Fuck off in our reconciliatory efforts and leave VP alone, ok. I am from Bor and I believe in realistic persons that’s why I am supporting peace initiative of Dr.Riek.

            Barh Gazal people are panicking about upper Nile unity and that’s why Dinka dominated SPLA is restless, foolish majority !

      @ william you are right 100%, Machar should step down as a VP because he is the man who cause the problem between Nuers and Dinkas. Also in this apology Machar didn’t use the word’ sorry’ in his speech, this is not apology at all.

      Dear All

      With respect to that he is our vice president.
      but he must put in mind that what ever been done by his relative is him,
      Like the incident that took place last month of killing almost the whole family,
      whom can we point our finger to?
      For sure it’s Mr VICE PRESIDENT

    Bravo Dr. Riek. you have taken a good move. A move of peace and reconciliation among Junubeen. thank you very much for your apology.

    The first Apology was for Garang Family. This apology is for peace and reconciliation.
    The last apology will be for compensation of destruction and killing of innocent Bor People.

    Tell truth to people. I defected because Garang was not paying his officers.

Do you really believe that the Nuer will ever declare, recognize or acknowledge you as brothers!? The hatred the Nuer have for the Dinka cannot be communicated through words. It is the unifying feature of their society.

    to be apologize is not shameful or she/he being a coward person .It mean that you are totally convinced of your wrong doing you did against other person or people. Dr Riek now admit of what he did against people of South Sudan in general particular people of Dinka Bor in 1991. Thank you Dr Riek God bless among others who were did wrong things against people of S Sudan.

    Even if, he apologies, for thousands time. No mercy on him, unless he kill himself that’s the only solution. For well known cowards (Bor) communities, the movement wasn’t created by the BOR communities alone it was formed by southerners who were in the Sudanese armed forces led by Major Kerbino Kuany Bol and William Nyuon Bany. Stop nonsense on this website.

    Apology not accepted ! He killed thousands of Dinka’s, how can you forgive a killer of thousands? I’ll stand behind him as a vice president in the South Sudanese interests, but forgive him for killing and displacing thousands effectively ruining the lives of so many people I will never do.

    He should not have been vice president either. He only became it because he’s Nuer, Kiir wanted diversity.

    Whoever wrote this article is wrong. Riek Machar attack bor on November 13, 1991. It was not on 15 November 1991. Second to that when Riek Machar Teny go to bor, he should have to be straight in his visit, and not to apologize all the time. If bor people are mad about what Riek Machar Teny had done to them in the past, then let them take the guns and fight Nuer community, or killed Riek Machar.

If not the 1991 killing was justified and there is no apology about it. If Dr. Riek Means he apology to you ya Dinka Bor, he needs to step down from Vice President and face the justice.
