Most Dinka Villages Are Built In the Lands of Their Hosts

October 10, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Establishment of Twenty eight states: The unilateral move to establish twenty eight states to benefit Dinka people in the lands of their hosts can be related to an act of internal human parasite that benefit at expense of their hosts. Recently, the leader of Dinka government, Salva Kiir and the Satanic members of the so called Jieng Council Elders had become so blind to see the truth, corrupt and ambitious to implement hidden agenda to create Dinka hegemony by establishing twenty eight (28) state without historical fact or rationale to this new political map. This move is a wake up call to the hosts of the lands throughout South Sudan to stand up and fight hard to evict Dinka nomads from their ancestral land.
Messiria has no legal right in Abey: The Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) did not give right to the Messiria, (the nomadic Arab people) who wander throughout the year around the Muglad in search of pastures for their cattle. Likewise, the Southern Sudan have legal right to refuse Dinka Nomads from having equal right in land and to force Salva Kiir and Satanic members of Jieng Council Elders to nullify their decision to divide and give lands to Dinka settlers. Such attempt to hijack and usurper people power is interpreted and treated as barbaric behavior similar to evil act of Twareg and Al-Qaeda that destroyed ancient Sufi Shrines in Timbuktu, Mali and struggle of Messiri to annex Abey permanently to Southern Kordofan.
Difference between native and nomadic person: It is so imperative to know the difference between the native and nomadic person. Native person is a person born, grows up, lives and dies in his/her ancestral land. Nomadic person or people according to a Greek word, the nomad means wander or people with no settled home, who move from place to place in search of pasture and food.
Pastoral Nomad: Pastoral nomad is defined as group of people or tribe with no settled home who move from place to place in search of pastures for their livestock. Dinka people in South Sudan fit this definition because of their mobile status and their practice of similar activities. As the result, Dinka tribe are scattered over South Sudan. Other Southern tribes have permanent habitats. You cannot find Chollo (Shilluk), Nuer, Bari, Anuak or Murle in other States other than the regions of their permanent habitats in the Great Upper Nile State and Bari in Equatoria. But Dinka people are found in three States of Great Upper Nile, Warrap State, Lake State, Bar El Gazel, Abey and now are moving to occupy Equatoria States.
What compelled Dinka to settle permanently in their new regions of pastures: Dinka has been after pastures, As moving back and forth in search of pastures is hard duty to do and involve deadly confrontation with hosts, Dinka started to settle permanently in host lands which now become their home lands.
Evolutionary traits: We might be aware of the fact that Dinka people acquired new, religious, physical, social and cultural traits and regional Dinka language to adapt to their new habitats and to interact with their hosts or native people of the lands they seek for pastures. The attainment of these abilities are acquired over long period of time they spend in those new lands. That why Dinka people differ linguistically, socially, religiously and culturally from each other due to traits they acquired in period of time in regions of their new lands and environment. Embrace of these traits allow Dinka Nomads to be welcome by their hosts and lead to good neighborhood relationships.
Annexation of Abey to Southern Kordofan: Dinka Ngok (Abey) had been Arabized and Islmaized decades back before British Colonial Administration. This status gave Ngok Dinka dual identities (citizen of South and North Sudan). This was a complicated problem for British government to separate Southerners (African & Christians) and the Northerners (Arab Muslim) from each other. As problematic as it was, the possession of dual citizenship had left no option to British Colonial Administration other than transferring Abyie and its Islamized inhabitants to South Kordofan in 1905 in order to contain the spread of Islam and Arabic culture into entire South Sudan. Today, Dinka Ngok (Abey) and Renk adopted Islam as their religion and Arabic culture such as dress and spoken language.
Cultural and Social traits acquired by other Dinka in regions of Great Upper Nile: Dinka of Baliet, Atar embraced social and cultural traits that are similar to Chollo (Shilluk) and those in Bentiu took from Nuer people.
Negative traits: This behavior occurred when Dinka political puppets become more corrupt and ambitious for power. Arab found them so vulnerable to be used to fight proxy war in return empower Dinka to rule South Sudan. These negative behaviors toward other tribes resulted in destruction of peaceful coexistence between Dinka and their Neighbors.
Rise of Ali Abd Al Latif movement against British’s Southern Policy in 1921: Ali Abd al Latif was a black Islamized Dinka and former puppet officer within northern nationalists. With help of Arabs (Northerners), he had founded the United Tribes Society in 1921 that called for independence of Sudan from British. Ali was promised by Arabs that power would be equally divided between Dinka tribe and Northern Sudanese. That is when Dinka started to use phase “we are born to rule, not to be rule”. This was Arabs proxy war against Britain’s southern policy to divide Sudan before independence through Ali organization in expense of other Tribes in South Sudan. Ali had reconstituted his movement as the White Flag League and planned unrest against British Colonial Administration in Khartoum in 1924 which caused him to seek refuge in Egypt.
Abil Alier move to spoiled 17 years struggle: Northern Sudanese had started process to reunite Sudan before Sudan independence on January 01, 1956. The move for forceful unification prompted Southern Sudanese to rebel in August 1955 to separate south from north Sudan. However, Abel Alier who is from Dinka tribe and the former vice-president of Sudan from 1971 to 1981 was used by Northerners against the will of people of South Sudan. Alier initiated an effort to end 17 years war between South and North Sudan in 1971. He was delegated by former Sudanese president Jaafer Nimier to convince Vatican to discourage churches not to support the South Sudan Liberation Front (SSLM/F) under leadership of General Joseph Laguo (from Madi tribe). Joseph was forced to drop a call for South Sudan Independence. The struggle resulted into regional government after peace accord signed in Addis Ababa in 1972 instead of separation. Abel Aleir was appointed as president of regional government even though he was not member of the movement. He had conspired with president Nimier to violate Addis Ababa agreement by abrogating regional government system and reunited South Sudan with Sudan. Such violation caused emergency of South Sudan Independence Movement (SSIM) known as Anya Nya two that called for South Sudan Independence.
In conclusion, nomads will remain wanders without permanent lands or they have to be abide by law of their hosts and be assimilated into cultures of their hosts and serve the interest and the well being of their land owners. Therefore, the so called twenty eight states established by presidential decree is unattainable, delusional, fake, illegal and irrational and must be nullified. Any move to delineate or demarcate historical boundaries must happen through democratic debate in governmental institutions such as state council form by government proposed in IGAD-PLUS peace deal signed in August 2015.
