Together We Grieve!
The road to liberty is never easy, there are thorns, bumps and valleys along the way to Freedom.

May 08, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Dear ‘Leek Nyahal Thiang, Leek Nyuel Juol’ (Leek-Nuer), the people of the people, the sharers of what you are blessed with, peace lovers, the sitters of strangers(God’s people),Love privileged people, welcoming; just to mention but a few. Your kindness and generosity is unquestionable. There is no single question or a doubt a living witness of the first liberation would post against your outstanding supports to the then SPLM/A, SSIM/A and again SPLM/A.
The late or living leaders of all those movements would testify, if ask, of your generosity be it in hell or in heaven. You have been the breadbasket for all these movements. You sheltered, nurtured and nursed them. Besides, you gave them manpower; your sons and daughters joined them for a course to demand an independent state but despite all those humanly sacrifices, you have been betrayed, let down, last in the rank files, your land, properties and resources were destroyed, innocents lives were lost and yet you hold unto God’s commands of ” Love your neighbor as yourself” mark 12:31, again, Leviticus 19:18 ” Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself”. For I am the LORD!
Once again, the history is repeating itself. We are all going to be once again the living witnesses of the second liberation. That devastated tragedy inflicted by the Juba base government on our innocent civilians through the usage of armed civilians from our neighboring states and counties is a conspiracy and must be condemned in the strongest term possible by both sisterly counties of Rubkotna and Mayom .
Let us learn with deep analysis that what happened last week in Nhialdiu and other areas within Leek geography was a well calculated conspiracy with an intention to break the backbone of the struggle in Unity state.
Their (govt) intention is to assassinate the social fabric between the Rubkona and Mayom communities and set them on-slaughtering, which would serve to divert the attention from a broad base armed struggle to a community base violence between the two communities, both of which serve a huge driving force behind the armed opposition against a self belittled government as it is a tactical and an objective to them to win the war.
As we join hands in pains and sorrows my people, ‘LET US ALL HOLD OUR HANDS TOGETHER AND HOLD BACK OUR TEARS AS WE SAY NO TO AVENGE’..
Today We are heart broken not because we are weak but because we are resisting the pains as we commit to keeping the commandments of God of mercy and love.
Brief Historical Account
The so called Dinka Council of Elders have a perception and believe that the Nuers are implementers of their own fall. Yes, with our overridden emotions when provoke, we do, but for how long shall we be overridden by our emotions, Naath?. There is no any mean of ill-intention Juba shall not exploit to get us have internal frictions and weaken the resistant prior to Juba survival. We must rise above their ‘’dark room plans’’ and defeat them. “You see!, We have all witnessed the signing of this Peace Agreement(CPA) today, tomorrow you will hear that the Nuer destroys it’’, Dr.John Garang was quoted as telling the peace guests at dinner?. To interpret this, we all know that Dr. John was for a United Sudan and for him to have said so meant;
- Sell/tarnish the Nuer name internationally as violent people without objectives.
- To kill the vision for self-determination through the very Nuer advocating for it.
- Link the 1991 inevitable incident to the wishful demise of self-determination (b) prior to its magnification.
- To draw a negative image of Nuer society in the eyes of the international community.
To elaborate further, Dr. John began with an order to disarm the Late Pualino Matip when he refused to recognize him in a meeting held in Newsite at the then Sudan-Kenya border, a move that could have provoked a prolong resistance between the SPLA and Paulina’ vast supporters(Nuer), which would have forced the international community to back down from securing a secession for southerners. The implication of which was “what rules were they going to govern themselves if they could fight themselves as early as the signing of the CPA?”.
God solved that tension. The Kaldak incident against Tanginye and the 3/10/2009 fight by unity state government against Paulina Matip’s bodyguards in Bentiu were designed by the so called Jieng council of Elders through you to further what Garang said about you Naath.The good news was that we proved wrong Garang’s negative sentiment about us, internationally as what we longed for, the aforementioned vision gave birth to a new Nation. Let us congratulate the Late Hero Paulina Matip for swallowing the bitterness for the lost of his family members in 2009 in a provocative assault on his bodyguards at his home as he prioritized the birth of the new born nation at any cost of whatever came his way. Today as a community who has given up so much for Self Determination and Independent of this country, we have many questions to ask ourselves.
This brief story is all about us the grieved Leek-Nuer, let us rise above what the government had evilly conspired against us and divert its intention, and instead let it strengthen us once more and fight to dismantle this tyranny regime in either mean it opts. Puljang with his future linage, the Manytuil sons and their likes in the government, History will not spare them!!!!!.
SO GOD HEAR US!
