What Is Going On In Pibor And Many Other Parts Of Our Country Is Completely Unacceptable

Feb 25, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- A sound of a bullet anywhere in South Sudan has never been a surprise and will never be silent as long as our country shall continue to be led not by Salva Kiir but rather, under the leadership of Dinka Council of Elders (JCE) whose members impose their evil acts on President Salva Kiir.

As I wrote in my previous article, the current government led by JCE is interested in non-other than planting seeds of war and hatred among the rest of South Sudanese with the exception of the so called the “ruling community” to which the advantage is being preserved. The more the war rages on among the rest of South Sudanese, the weaker we will become, which will be the greatest achievement made by the JCE led government to marginalize the rest of South Sudanese to their advantage and thus shall certainly fulfill their quest to lead the country for life should we (South Sudanese) accept to be misled in such a way.

Therefore, I want to urge the Murle people, who are always known for their bravery, strength and unity among themselves to see the true colors of all the mess happening in the purported state of Boma, one of the new states created through unconstitional Establishment Order no. 36/2015, that the fruits of the planted seeds of unilaterally created 28 states is killing of one another in your own state or instigating conflicts between neighboring communities” over improper demarcated boundaries and poor inter communal relations.

Having been promoted to write this article by the news of eruption of violent clashes between former South Sudan Democratic Forces (SSDM) allied to Gen. David Yau Yau and the elements of SPLA allied to Baba Medan, I fully understand that, those who have now suffered loss of lives, properties and displacement are Murle people whereas the JCE led government is joyfully celebrating the achievements of their creations in Juba.

Importantly, the Murle people should know that Government of South Sudan under the leadership of Salva Kiir has never brought a popular person trusted by his/her people, it has not all it takes to keep the community together to bring peace and harmony to the community hence, making it a clear “bloodthirsty party” in the story of parties I have ever read of. It is the reason why David Yau Yau is politically detained here in Juba since he is the only uniting factor among South Sudanese politicians from Murle community.

You (Murle) should understand the a few reasons why JCE led government appointed Mr. Medan to the governorship of the unconstitutional state of Pibor ignoring the fact that he is not popular among Murle people. The prime reason is to keep the Murle at war with the Lou Nuer which has been his (Medan) song since he was the Deputy Governor in Jonglei State, with other reason being to kill Yau Yau’s political ambitions since he has been entirely reluctant to calls by JCE government to launch attacks on Lou Nuer areas from the beginning of the war in 2013.

Yau Yau, too, has healthy politics and has since urged Murle to live peacefully with Lou Nuer people and the rest of the neighboring communities, a call seen to be in a complete contrast with the demand of JCE government who has only been interested in seeing unending frictions between the two sisterly communities and launching attacks on Lou Nuer and destroying their areas had they got the chance to do so.

 

With the luck and blessing from the heavenly God, Lou Nuer youth with their sticks, spears and the few AK-47s they’re carrying have been able to withstand and foil all the attempts by the heavily armed of joint forces of JCE and UPDF from penetrating into their (Lou Nuer) territories.

At this juncture, I would like to remind the Murle people that the JCE government is not our government until they suspend the operationalization of 28 states, reverse their unilateral order no. 36/2015, implement the signed peace agreement as it is and let the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) be formed. Only then, our transitional government will draft our permanent constitution which incorporates the kind of government under which we (South Sudanese) would like to be ruled, the number of states we want which will not cause us future conflicts, and that will only happen after we all bless it through a referendum.

Our system of governance must not be decided by a clique of tribal group just to suit their tribal or rather individual interests, they must know and accept the fact that “the national interest supersedes whatever interests they are trying to promote.

God bless South Sudan

    Our country South Sudan is the hotbeds of East Africa with no shortage of both deaths and war under ISIS Kiir’s mentality.You better marked my words.

  • why do murle reject medan and he is their son whom do they want to rule them, while Yau Yau don,t want to be the governor of Boma state, murle are confused community which full of illetrate people.

  • Exactly Gatwech Kutei you pin pointed the very aim of the tricked agreement signed between Kiir Regime and Yau Yau during the War against Nuer Tribe bèfore second Enemy Shuluke and the third Enemy The Equatorian Tribes.Dinka needs to win favor of Murle Tribe to assist them fighting aganist first Enemy and throw them away when finishing their Goal. That was why appointing Governor Medan instate of yau yau in the new created states. For Jieeng Council has planed to punish every tribe by other . As you seen the tactics with Shuluke for a year and half Fighting Nuer in side of Government before realeaisation of Dinka Ojectives. gaiwiech@gmail.com

    Mr Gatwech,

    I disagree with your quote below:

    “A sound of a bullet anywhere in South Sudan has never been a surprise and will never be silent as long as our country shall continue to be led not by Salva Kiir but rather, under the leadership of Dinka Council of Elders (JCE) whose members impose their evil acts on President Salva Kiir”.

    Unquote: JCE are not leading this country in anyway but this dictator has full control and is simply using JCE among other tools to continue his rein of terror. Please let’s grow up politically and begin to address the devil with his real name if we really need to see a lasting peace in South Sudan where you will never hear a sound of a bullet no more!
