July 3, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — It seems like a just, as the “rebellion” gets a bit of hope, gets back to our normal tradition and proclaims our history. We are attacked, we’re divided and we ’re killed. How does everyone react to their new situations?
My favorite part of this revolution (rebellion) is that we are all split up. We’ve seen how Dr. Riek Machar and the world’s leaders interact and how different characters basically only are chatting with particular characters that they always talk to, so by splitting us up into these four different camps, we’re able to see these interactions between different characters that we’ve never seen before, and some people surprisingly don’t like each other, some surprisingly do like each other, so like I said, that is my favorite part of acting in this new movement and watching my fellow cast mates interact.
How will their time apart change things for the Naath when they we ’re reunited? [For example] Dr. Riek; kind of taking a leadership role in the federal government of South Sudan.
Yes, as we’re all split up, we’re seeing each and everyone become their own leader. But we ‘re all sort of following the footsteps of Dr. Riek. By all being children of him and seeing how he has taken the reins, we all step up and accept the challenge. With our brothers and sisters being in the terror (Juba government ) with the enemy of peace, development and democracy (Salva Kiir), you wouldn’t think that he (Kiir) would have to take on a leadership position upto the end of this year, but actually in isolation plot.
As being emotionally wounded, one may ask, is there a way to get out of this situation?
Well and good, as the resistance progresses, Dr. Machar and his SPLM-IO is having to literally get up in front of crowds of people and direct them in the way they should go because even we Nuer get separated at certain points. But when we all come back together and have our “little reunion”, we all pretty much fall back into place just like a family would. There’s not too much clashing going on amongst ourselves, but because we’ve all had these outside experiences, they have taken a toll on each of us, it does create some drama and some friction between certain characters within Nuer.
Speaking of friction, things seem to be on the chilly side for the mighty Nuer and SPLM-IO at large when the revolution begins.
I know, right? That was a cold shoulder he (Dr. Machar) gave us on that little walk, wasn’t it?
So that storyline gets real nice and juicy as it continues along. For the first time, we ’ll see Dr. Riek Machar not be the guy that just instantly gets the insults but will actually have a little, we ’ll call it a challenge, from someone else, and we have a triangle form, and it’s by none other than his own Naath.
It’s not the first time he’s done such a thing. He had a little thing in 1991 as well, so once we finally all meet up, we slowly discover that there is something possibly going on, but the nature of how it’s going on is what’s pretty special about this awkward situation.
With it being a political fiction show, there is an element of that in it, but there ’s a huge amount of betrayal that we Nuer feels towards both within ourselves and out, but at the same time, we ’re trying to go about it as human beings who are not just going to be catty and be put down by the situation.
So it’s actually quite an interesting triangle that comes from this, and it’s one of the things I’m most proud of this “rebellion”, how we shape it and had it turn into what it is because when it was first pitched, I was quite nervous. It just didn’t make sense to me how it was plausible, and I think we really have something interesting with it now.
Viva the mighty Naath, viva Dr. Riek Machar, viva SPLM-IO and viva our well-wishers who are giving support morally and in other ways around!. Victory is certain!
