July 02, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—Nuer Community members around the world are stunned by the recent United Nations sanctions imposed on our brave Generals Peter Gatdet Yak, James Koang Chuol, and Simon Gatwech Dual.

The Nuer Community feels that fairness was not served in the course of the action, because there is no way warmongers, such as South Sudan army Chief of General Staff Gen Paul Malong Awan, South Sudan Minister of Defence Kuol Manyang Juuk, and South Sudan Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth, who have all committed all sorts of heinous war crimes and crimes against humanity were left untouched in the sanction.

Three Kiir’s stooge Generals carry separate but similar heavy criminal baggage; Paul Malong Awan on one hand stamped his finger prints in every crime committed.

He was abundantly and adversely mentioned by the AU Inquiry Commission Report as the one who he spearhead Juba Genocide through his Gwelweng Militia gangs.

Gen Kuol Manyang on the other hand authorized the use banned cluster bombs on civilians in Jonglei State on February 15, 2015. The busy bee Michael Makuei Lueth carried out mass murder on innocent civilians UNMISS in Bor town, yet disseminates hate speech through government owned SSTV.

A sane person would ask why such criminals are left on the loose?

Targeting only Nuer Generals in the sanction is not fair. The United Nations has not acted on its recent finding that a beast has turned Unity State into the death valley.

Government’s Gen Matthew Puljang Top who is abductor, rapist, kidnapper, and butcher is reducing young generation in Bentiu in a speed of light in the eyes of the international community.

He castrated young boys, raped young girls and killed a good number of elderly in Bentiu town, and the atrocities are ongoing. One incident was recorded that government soldiers under command of Gen Puljang gang-rapped an elderly women, then pushed 30 AK47 bullets inside her vagina and died instantly.

If war criminals like Gen Matthew Puljang are left out in the sanction, where is fairness the United Nations is talking about? It’s the miscarriage of justice if the United Nations imposed sanction on Generals Simon Gatwech Dual, Peter Gatdet Yak, and James Koang Chuol simply because they defended their people from extermination by the Genocidal regime.

The Nuer Community in the Diaspora has condemned the UN sanction be it’s flawed, one-sided, and lacks truth. The Naath people are targeted as community by the world’s body that is supposed to protect them.

The United Nations didn’t act even when Michael Makuei Lueth butchered Nuer civilians on its watch.

The United Nations needs to do its best job by protecting civilians from all the political divide, bring justice through ICC those who are wiping out Nuer populations in Unity State, Joonglei State, and Upper Nile State.

Thank you God bless .

  • Nuer Generals should being sanctions long time ago. All of them were given Highest ranks by John Garang and Riek Machar because they adored both. They know how to fight,but it is not good for them when they leave the army because most are not educated. I might be wrong,but many among are ILLITERATES. Those Generals don’t even know Machar’s ideology and his secret.

  • Dear Kong Pal Choul Ranley,i think you have idea what Riek Machar had done in Juba. I am very very sorry and very upset by your article.

    I believed that,the generals under UN sanctions are the SPLA/M-in-Opposition which is the people’s resistance movement,but to termed them as “Nuer generals” then the rest of South Sudanese would begin to have a second thought about this movement or the war other South Sudanese are participating in. Please, let’s be accommodative and tolerance of others.

  • I’m very much agreed with koang Ranley because they all generals 99.9% are Nuers and it’s totally make the SPLM IO is a Nuer movement. this is something south sudanes should know about the Riek Machar’s government of south Sudan is looks like it’s come much more tribalist government demaine by Nuers tribe more than the government in Juba that people claim that it’s tribalist government demained by Dinka (Danish).

    i personally think that there is no logic behind those words you post ,when Nuer were single out nobody talk about it where is what is not Nuer here?for you mention a Nuer Dr.Reik government is educating Nuer that you kills them because you do not want them to be part of the state of South Sudan and if that is the case do you think Nuer will go out without the ground with their case?if it is a issue of rights which no body feels that Nuer have been target collectively been chopp off from their civil and social rights still making you happy Agumut iam sorry to said this that is not what is call nation you are leading without a big community call Nuer and feel happy when they are out from the rests of the communities.Are you actually sure that we have a rights to claims here in this country?and the ground of our rights goes with human rights?i doubts if you know it or not ,killing of the Nuer is a simple to you we will wait because sometimes rights speaks by itself if Nuer will not be able to demands for their rights God will make it possibly because He creates them for a purpose not to be given for killing ,please be faire if you want us to be in one nation what is going on in Unity State is beyond human thinking those of you who have understanding must corrects it.we are not tribalist and does why despite all happens among us others who are with Nuer who have been denying rights in the country kills like dogs including Dinkas who feel that it is not good to treats part of the community like that in the nation are enjoying all their rights,that show Nuer are not tribalist as you said ,the future will make it clear while we go on solving the problem

    • I am not a tribalism nor against people of Nuer,but Nuer’s tribe need to correct its linguistics. What Dr. Riek Machar had done was wrong and that must change. SPLM itself have to change including Dr.Riek Machar,Mabior and his mother. They have to do it very quick.

    • What one Monkey did can spoil all monkeys and that is exactly what Riek Machar has done to people of Nuer. A crummy miserable situation and bad reputation will be there for life.South Sudan should have gone if Army didn’t stop that dangerous failed Coup. Most of our people survive of their own for years and they have nothing to do with the government in Juba or politics.

  • opiyo

    for kiir and others left out,their home is icc nertherlands

    • ICC in Den Haag Netherlands is too expensive and there is no need to waste money for SPLM-OI elites. Dr.Riek and his cronies have to be HANG in the South Sudan,but some of them may deserve AMNESTY or avoid violence and died in exile.I am not a fan of Kiir’s government,but he will not go to ICC in Hague because he did nothing wrong..

  • ICC don’t even want to indicted Omar Al Bashir. The ICC disturbed him until he suffers a lot or die. He should have hand himself over to ICC instead of suffering and it is the same with Nuer’s generals. They will still traveling to Khartoum without any problem.

  • you people you need to stop this merth of Nuer been killed in Juba, it can’t solve or achieve anything. because you continue to claim it,and the war will be continue with out no end and the peace will not come to south Sudan.

  • really wife of Uganda will face ICC because of mass killing in juba that was the course of the war which make young nation not in peace what you state here is not true because world had known about the root course of the war what involve nuer general to ICC
