An Appreciation Letter & Alternative to Win Peace Back To South Sudan
Peter Riek Nguany,
Monday, September 15, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — As I begin I would firstly like to pass my cordial regards and felicitations to all my comrades and leaders of the SPLA/M –IO for their vigorous contribution since the onset of December 15 civil war until today, your strive on fighting the dictator Salva Kiir is highly recognized by the people of South Sudan and the world as whole.
Dear victors, as you are known to every South & non-South Sudanese by your fine notable deeds & victories, I find it convenient to mention your names.
1. General Peter Gatdet Yaka (Judi Iraq)
- General Gathoth Gatkuoth Hothnyang
- General James Koang Choul
- General Gabriel Tanginya
- General Dau Aturjong Nyuol
- General Gatwech Dual
- General Gabriel Duop Lam
Since you stood your ground and decided to fight for people’s right; I am handing over the solidity of finding out triumphant strategies to take down Salva Kiir’s regime as a result of fatal fabricated coup. We understand that Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) leaders become war mongers trying to distance and puzzle their citizens’ from their cruel actions and span their duration in power.
IGAD fails to bring Peace, what would you do as an alternative?
Dear politicians and leaders of the SPLA/M -IO, it has been quite a long time trying to play a diplomatic method to bring peace to South Sudan yet Juba-regime peace’s snatchers & murderers did not and will not accept a peaceful manner to return serene back to South Sudan. Allow me to recall president Salva Kiir’s quotation:
“I am the president of South Sudan, and I must always remain in that position as the president, the leader of that country forever”
What do you make up of this statement? For me, when I quote the president saying so, I preferred to concur with General Dau Aturjong Nyuol quotation when he said, “Juba government will not accepted to settle this war in peaceful manner; instead they will be removed by force”
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) failed to solve the Country’s ongoing conflict either the African Union (AU) will do anything regarding the people’s injustice and concerns. The innocent people are still dying in the United Nation Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) camp in Juba and elsewhere in South Sudan every day from diseases and starvation. What are we doing about that? I suggest finding an innovative strategy to depose President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his cabinets instead of squandering time trying to convince him to accept a peaceable solution that he is not even interesting at. I trust your capabilities on building the best relationships ever with the world and ask for whether military or civil support better than Kiir’s Administration.
In conclusion, as one of the maltreat South Sudanese who has been silent and watching since the outbreak of country’s conflict in December 2013, today I am dedicating my time to those tossed away like cigarette ash, those wearing the leaves, those with no blankets but sky and the grass. I am calling for the world to help my people (The Nuers & citizens of South Sudan), toppling the bloody regime of Salva Kiir Mayardit who viciously massacred my family, relatives and friends.
Thank you very much for reading my letter!
Long live Republic of South Sudan!
Long live SPLM/A in Opposition!
Long live Freedom fighters!
