Jan 11, 2016 (Nyamilepedia) —- Please allow me to present my personal apology to you and to the people of South Sudan for any wrong that I might have done during the wartime.

December 15, 2013 was the worst deadly month in the history of South Sudan after independence. Following the severe tribal revenge and fights in greater Upper Nile region where great number of the two community Dinka and Nuer have died, and majority of population sought refuge in the UNMISS camps and some have left for protection in the neighboring countries such as Uganda, Ethiopia and Sudan.

The senseless war disrupted the movement and livelihood of people, and, more importantly, disrupted the movement of Dinka and Nuer members who were depending on where they were scheduled to serve and feed their children.

I’m committed to you, and I would change my tough and harsh political opinions, and I’m taking immediate corrective steps to regain your confidence in me. I have begun putting a comprehensive plan in place to provide better and timelier information to you, more tools and resources for our reconciliations and hailing programs and improved procedures for handling difficulties in the future.

I’m sorry I hurt your feelings or I’m sorry that my actions upset you I didn’t mean to hurt you, but I wasn’t happy what had happened on that day and didn’t know what I was saying. But that was really all my fault. Furthermore; I’m sorry to abuse you in public and I know that hurt your feelings. I am sorry and embarrassed. But most of all is deeply sorry.

I am truly sorry that I am for the anxiety, frustration and inconvenience that I caused. This is especially saddening because the war was founded as result of political difference and power struggle within the SPLM. Most importantly, I have published some information about your personal including details of the senseless war, which destroyed the country economy and social relationship between Dinka and Nuer

Finally, I’m sorry, but I was just tired of tribalism and continuing of the suffering of our people generally.I am ready to work with you and served our people under your leadership. Please accept my sincerely apology.

  • It was intensional war mr kier,don’t feel as if you were confused then. We all know it that conflict started by you(kier).You must grow up.
    You have planed this for years.And millions of funds weren’t stolen but you used them to achieved 15/12/2013 fake coup.
    You wanted to kill every nuer in order for dinka to rule and to grab anything South Sudan. You have brought every nation in Africa, Asia,Europe to contribute their part to eliminate all nuer nation in any way.But you have failed so severely that you wanted to apology to what had taken place in south sudan to kill nuer. Please,if meant what you say now,your sorry ‘ll have room if you resign from the post that made you nut to kill children,woman,men. If ou have acknowledge your misconduct, better to step a side.

  • Dear Equatorians, read this way of Mr. Salva apology to the people of SS. It seem that Dinka and Nuer is planning to make a collusion as you have seen the section of ministers. Therefore we must open our eyes to see it that every thing goes perfect.

  • Log

    Brother Lokiden, We equatorians should unite and organise ourselves against this time. I do not trust what the president say

  • what is the reason for any a pology? did they brought back people whom you were fighting on their behave? what kind of jobs do you want from kiir instead focus on the rights and freedom of the people of south Sudan! brother! do not lower yourself again to run under and the ticket of kiir’ failed leadership, continue the war against the corrupt leaders and killers of our people. i bet you please.

  • Wedjuba

    This Kiir is a pathetic liar, he is speaking as if South Sudananes are toddlers, who don’t understand what he did, from systematic killings, embezzlement of government money and illegal land grabbings.

    What he said is nonsense. The JCE and him included are scheming to stay in power after the transitional period.

    Now, the cake has been divided but yet Equatorians came out as losers.

    Dear fellow Equatorians, inside and outside the country, I appeal to you all, WAKE UP FROM COMA and regroup yourselves and unite. We are facing a total extinction in our own territories.

    We have everything it takes to change the GAME.

    THE BIG WAR IN SOUTH SUDAN IS STILL PENDING. There’s is NO PEACE as of now!!!.

    As I earlier prophesied, same people who caused the same mess in 2013 will get together and cause the same mess once again….,throwing us back to square ONE.

    Equatorians MUST act swiftly and solve their problems.

    Our military forces across Equatoria must stay sharp and prepare for the last WAR!!!.

  • UncleD

    I doubted if he is the one behind this useless article, otherwise there is nothing he can apologies for it!!!

  • Tolio

    This is an apology from the writer,not President Kiir. His audience infact is Mr Kiir. It is not an apology from the president to some South Sudanese. The president made his apology from the convention.

  • Bentiu Ramaran

    Lokiden and Log,

    I think both you misunderstood what the article is talking about. This is “Aguer Rual” apology letter to present kiir for criticizing him for murdering Nuer civilians in December 2013.

    Therefore, in this letter, Aguer Rual is detailing present Kiir that he will not criticize him again whatsoever, instead he will be working with Kiir. So it is not Salva Kiir apology to the people for massacring civilians based on their ethnicity in 2013.

  • GatNor

    What is this… an *ss kissing season? The illegitimate president kiir mass murdered citizens of South Sudan and deserved to be imprisoned and not an apology. Also any grievances and expressive outcry against him is the least suppressed & less empowered citizens can do to cope. This is rubbish.

    • Gatdet

      I know it was not salva ideas to kill nuer
      But he was not smart enough to figure
      It out that they are putting him in the bad situation.
      I got no room in my heart to 4Give
      kiir. The only way to for give him is stepping down . otherwise no forgiveness.

      • Mr Gatdet,

        Can you recall the address Mr Kiir gave in splm convention before war broke out in 2013. Can you in a second rewind the speech related to Riek Machar and 2011 splm split. You would definitely know that Kiir’s hand has blood of innocents. If you now believe in Nuer/Dinka alliance for superiority in a wanton corrupt South Sudan then you can cement the analogy that Kiir was not involved in the mess. Moreover Kiir was the commander in chief of the armed forces as well as the executive president of the country that brings him to the hub of massacre of innocent, poor South Sudanese. When looking at these things we must cautiously annalyse things through patriotic prism.

      • GatNor

        I agree with you Gather, the writer’s attempt to sweep all the crimes committed by kiir, his tribes men and his gov must have manifest to him the writer during a drunk and an emotional moment. You have spoken the truth.
