Jan 13, 2016 (Nyamilepedia) —- Collo Community Council Addresses Its Grievances to Dr Riek Machar On Presidential Order No 36/2015 AD And The Selection Of National Assembly Members and The Ministers To The Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) in Juba
We, The Collo Community Council, are pleased with your position on the Presidential Order No 36/2015 AD which was issued by President Salva Kiir on 2nd October 2015 for the creation of 28 states in South Sudan and the appointment of 28 State Governors.
We were briefed by Collo representatives who came back to Khartoum recently from Pagak about your position in this regards. They narrated to us about good meetings you had with all the representatives who were sent to Pagak from different places including Chollo representatives.
Besides, they told us about your concern and determination to make sure that the Presidential Order no 36/2015 must be revoked before the formation of transitional Government of National Unity.
In fact, Collo Community has already rejected and condemned that Order because it has taken the land of other tribes/communities and annexed them to the Dinka community, particularly, the land of Chollo community along Sobat and the White Nile Rivers on the eastern bank in Upper Nile State. The Chollo Council will fully co-operate with whoever is repealing of this unjust Presidential Order.
In addition, the Chollo representatives who came to Khartoum from Pagak told us about people who were nominated to participate in National Assembly and Transitional Government of national Unity in Juba. Unfortunately, the representation of Chollo is unfair.
We the Chollo Council are raising the concern on this unfair representation. Therefore, we urge you to review and reconsider this unfair disproportional representation of Chollo in these two national institutions.
Finally, the members of Chollo community Council have been informed about the large number of Chollo daughters and women who were taken from Malakal town by SPLM-IO forces in 2013 to Nuerland and remained there up to now. We also urge you to have the returned to their families as soon as possible.
Thanks in anticipation, may God reward your services with his richest blessings.
