South Sudan vice president calls for border peace between Unity, Warrap and Lake states


By Bonifacio Taban Kuich

April 8, 2012 (BENTIU) - South Sudan’s vice president, Riek Machar, is urging Warrap, Unity and Lakes state governors to come to the table with their grievances and improve the security situation in northern/central region of South Sudan.

Speaking to Sudan Tribune on Saturday, Machar said he will ensure that the governors of the three states will soon visit the common borders to encourage their citizens to live peacefully.

Unity state governor, Taban Deng; Warrap state governor, Nyadeng Malek; and Lake state governor, Chol Mayay agreed to meet with local chiefs in Madol, Unity state, on 4 March. However, it was re-scheduled for 10 April in the wake of Luo-Nuer/Murle talks in Jonglei state.

At least 11 people in Twic County, Warrap state were reportedly killed on 25 March. Another Warrap state tribal attack in January reportedly led to the death of more than 70 people.

Youth in Tong East of Tong North county, Warrap state, allegedly attacked Jel in Mayom county, Unity state, killing “more than 100 heads of cattle”, stealing “about 400” and wounding four people on Wednesday.

Cattle rustlers allegedly killed 46, and wounded 13 in Mayiandit County, Unity state in September 2011.

In January the UN estimated 120,000 “may need relief assistance” due to the conflict in Jonglei. There has been a long-running cattle-raiding/child-abduction feud between the Luo-Nuer and Murle ethnic groups which has escalated with the advent of readily available small arms. The proliferation of which is due, in part, to two decades of Sudanese civil war, which ended in 2005.

Machar said: “We need to visit the common borders of Warrap and Unity State particularly the north east border of Warrap and western border of Unity state, [...] we need to visit them with governors so that we can tell people it is important for them to move on with the peace process, and this will be done before Madol and I hope we will do that after Easter”.

On Saturday cattle rustlers from Tong East county, Warrap state, killed a nine-year-old girl, stole approximately 100 cattle and wounded four in Koch County, Unity State authorities claim.

There is also conflict on the border between Sudan and South Sudan. In March the president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, claimed that the military escalation was provoked by Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) coordinated aerial attacks on the border town of Jau and Pan Akuach, followed by a ground forces assault against another area called Teshwin.

Machar encouraged citizens to offer the South Sudanese army “logistical and moral support” in their defence of their international border.

After his Easter address on Sunday, Machar said to the people of Unity state, that he will move together with three governors from state to state, calling for peace among the citizens of South Sudan.

You are a shame to south Sudan couz you lack the logic of convincing pple as an intellectual. You only know how to insult pple but not how to tell the truth. Who do you think will again read your comments since you are now known to be a misbrought up child?

                    I agree with you 100% brother. We have to differentiate the job well done from the rest regardless of who did it. Look, even in the bible, Soul currently known in the bible as Paul was a killer. He killed many people but yet God accepted him and changed him. God has a purpose of human being. Dr. Riak has done a lot compare to other individuals in South Sudan.

          What do you want to achieve by always criticizing all the good things Dr. Riek Machar does for our nation? He is not doing it to take over power from Salva Kiir if that is your worry and mission to guard against. Actually he is doing it to smoothen the leadership of Salva Kiir. Tell the rest of Awan section about it, ok?

He is a peace maker. Dr. Riak, God be with you, not for the seek of being the next president but for the seek of peace in South Sudan.

      You would have to be naïve beyond redemption to believe that this seemingly patriotic message from Riek Machar is at all removed from his political ambitions. The man is clearly campaigning for Executive office and will say and do anything to attain the position. He is a calculating and shrewd individual... a trait that most of you seem to childishly believe is evidence of a moral compass.

          Dinka Dominated SPLA/M, I think you don’t live in South Sudan,if you live in South you can know that Dr. Machar whom you are insulting always is the one making South to be South.Who do you think can do this heavy task while all Dinka become thiefs starting from Kiir up to Kuol Manyang?
          I hate these stupid ideas of that son of bitch Dinka Dominated SPLA/M( Laul mour gatjiok).

            Do you real know how much million Riek M. Teny stolen from Oil he signed in 1997 then he runs away?

            The fact is killer is a killer period. He can not bring peace while he himself murders many Dinkas both civilian and SPLA/M Good example, did Lou Nuer community listen to him when he told them not attempt to attacking Murle? The Lou Nuer ignored him because they know he is a trouble maker

              Madina,do you know how many people killed by John Garang from Nuer? If Dr. Riek was a killer like Garang,there could not have Dinka here from greater Bor,all could be killed by Dr. Riek. Riek Machar is a real man for all Southerners, don’t was your time insulting Dr. Riek and tommorow you find him leading all the South Sudan as President.

                John Garang did not killed people direct for his own political but there might be people got killed indirect because of their own failure to respect the SPLA Movement. I can vote for another Nuer poltician and not this killer guys Riek Machar Teny. He will soon follow those he murder because of his political agenda

    I think VP Riek M Teny need to put more focus particular on Nuers Bentiu communities and Jonglei communities because they don’t understand what the peace mean. In order for peaceful solution, those attacked Tonj East community and Gokrial in Twic community must be brought to justice if not then, no meaning of peace whatsoever. How many time people held peace later break by ferce of Nuers looter

    VP Riek M.Teny was the one who caused a hateful and tribalism massive killing not only Bor community but also those 300 Dinka SPLA Officials from Bahr al Ghazal regions which he order his faction to fired them to death in Nasir county in present of many Nuers civilians. I wish if James Hoth Moi is the only true man in Nuer who can talk about peaceful solution between two tribes Dinka and Nuer.

    Don’t you know that "Madol" was a part of BeG before it was annexed into Nuer Genesis homeland (Liech/Unity State) by Nuer Warriors just yesterday(1991?)

    If you get guts like real men as you always shamelessly claim, why don’t you claim it back? Madol, Akobo... joined the mainland and the real owners will never claim them back because they are cowards.

    Had the Nuer ever wished to occupy the whole greater Upper Nile, from Renk to Mading Bor and from Ruweng/Biemnom to Buma-Gambella, it seems unlikely that the other coward Jurs (Jaang, Teet, Bar, Chai…) could have stopped them.

      Why do you at times pretend to be a patriot of South Sudan, when you are in fact a Nuer nationalist!? Ah, so the Nuer appropriated Dinka territory in 1991 while the Dinka were fighting your allies — Khartoum? How so very brave! Bravo, brothers! Don’t you now dare disavow that the vast majority of Nuer soldiers deserted the movement in 1991!

        Your self-congratulatory rant (amusing as it was) regarding the execrable condition of the SPLA in the 1990’s, woefully ignores or fails to take into consideration the tremendously important concurrent events of that time; the devastating lost of the SPLA’s most important source of military supplies and logistics – and the most important factor of all…

              I wish you (Naath) all the best, but it seems that your hatred for the Dinka outweighs any and everything else. I (like many Dinkas) want Greater Upper Nile partitioned; the hatred between the Nuer & Dinka is far too great for them to co-exist in one state.

    The vast area appropriated by the Nuer during the nineteenth century was formerly occupied by a Dinka, Anyuak and Burun population. The fate of this population is one of the most interesting questions pertaining to Nuer expansion. How many Dinka, Anyuak, Burun… were killed by the Nuer? How many died of starvation? How many migrated to other areas? And how many were assimilated into Nuer community?

    There are no recorded instances in which the Dinka succeeded in countering a large-scale Nuer offensive without government assistance, despite the fact that they were issued guns and ammunitions by the government and hold a strong advantage in this respect.

    favorable prospects for capturing large numbers of cattle, there is no evidence that the Dinka ever adopted this strategy. Moreover, the Dinka were unable to mobilize a defensive force equivalent in size to the eighteen hundred men who comprised a large raiding party and were consequently unable to contain their advance.

    Many areas including major towns: Torit, Kapoeta, Mading Bor … were recaptured and/or surrendered to the common enemy as a result of split. The remaining few garrisons and towns under the control of Torit faction were on the verge of panic of evacuation either to Uganda or Kenya refugees camps as well.

We should have to tame the human race first, and history seems to show that that cannot be done, this guy call machar is uesless for peace,
