August 26, 2016(Nyamilepedia) ——- South Sudan’s former Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, has now recovered but his first line of conversation with sympathizers did not meet the expectations of many of his diehard supporters who listened gently.

Speaking to Nyamilepedia correspondent this morning, a group of supporters who visited Dr. Machar yesterday could not stress enough their disappointment over the peace agreement.

While Machar hints that he will soon speak to peace brokers, the IGAD-Plus and the international community to find a better way forward on the peace agreement, the die-hard supporters, some of which concealed their identities, are calling for a full-scale war to overthrow Salva Kiir government.

“We cannot depend on IGAD or international community or else this enemy who has been weighing war all these times will terminate all of us. We are tired of waiting for the international community” Said David Pathot Bol, a fourth year university student, who identified himself as a “all-time supporter” of SPLM/SPLA-IO.

“This will not stop,  our people are dying. The international community will not bring any peace to South Sudan. We must find our own means to make this tribal group to come to their senses and accept unconditional power sharing” Pathot continued.

Kuol Puot, another diehard supporter, in the company of his colleagues, agreed with Pathot that IGAD will not bring peace to the country. Instead the South Sudanese must find their own solutions to the conflict, saying:

“After all this humiliation, we do not want to hear any foreign solution. We must find our own solutions to our problems. This is time to put IGAD aside and deal with Salva Kiir squarely” Mr. Puot said.

“We do not need nothing from anyone. We have enough – over 200, 000 – fighters. Only 1 000 fought and defeated the enemy for 4 days in Juba. If anything we need is a good strategy to overthrow Kiir tribal government once and for all”. he continued.

The group revealed to our correspondent that they are organizing a meeting between Dr. Machar and Lt. Gen. Peter Gatdet Yaka to forge ways forwards to return him to frontline.

“Gatdet is not happy at all with Taban Deng Gai who pushed them out of the resistance movement. Without the generals Taban lured Dr. Riek to Juba after he isolated them and tried to kill him. Gatdet must return to frontline for these cowards to know that they are playing with fire”. Puot continued.

Other supporters reiterate a similar view that calls for more struggle than a quick peace to temporarily restore stability in the country.

They accused their leader, Machar, of having stopped the army from Upper Nile and parts of Equatoria from marching onto Juba to “reinforce the 1000 troops and to restore laws and orders.”

Machar, who fled the country through the Democratic Republic of Congo, was reportedly hospitalized at Al-Amal Specialized Hospital.

Upon his discharge, Machar is expected to stay in the country for a few days before he decides his next destination.

According to James Gatdet Dak, the Official Spokesman of Dr. Machar, the chairman is now discharged and moved to a residential area where he will regain his full strength and be able to walk normally.

“Yes, my Chairman Dr. Riek Machar has been discharged from the hospital in Khartoum. He has regained strength from the extreme exhaustion. His swollen leg has also significantly improved. He can now walk with it, although still slowly,” Dak explained.

    The government that think through the gun the solution of South Sudan can be achieved should remember the war of 21 years with the Khartoum Gov’t, how it was lastly achieved and that thinking will not be the interest of the ordinary South Sudanese who are directly expose to barbaric acts of the actors

    • factual

      GGT, remember none of your traitors participated continuously during the twenty one years ofwar. It was fought exclusive by dinka and people from blue nile and nuba mountains. You start your nuer rebellion and have now realized than you can’t win under your mass murderer riek. The current war is between mathiang anyor and white army. So if you feel defeated, accept peace, don’t called others to join your stupid rebellion.

  • ggt,

    it is only who cannot remember the war for the liberation of this country. Just be reminded that the mathiang anyoor or the MTNs are the worst and we are prepared a real war which is call hell in the ass of jenge. wait and see

  • baaak the evil crow is crying like a doney after hearing the dischargement of Dr. Riak from the hospital. beek you must know that already your relatives who are refugees in Darful have reached more that 100 000, in Khartoum, all the streets are full of your sisters and brothers, in northern Uganda your tribe are the only people in the refugee camps. Yet you do not see that things are not going according to what you post.

    Dr. Machar will lead this country to true demomracy together with us who love democracy. Open you wounded skull and record that this country will never be the same again

  • Deang Gatluak

    Kirr stands there along with embarrassment.
    1. Lueth’s campaigns have failed.
    2. He now has Taban as a block to get anywhere.
    3. The world laughs at Gordon Buay who spread the wildest rumors
    4. He has no money for further bribes, and the neighbors laugh at his attempts to borrow more.
    5. People are fleeing the capital as they have lost trust
    6. Malong manages oversexed rapists
    7. Now the entire people relying on UN and NGO’s angry as Kiir is attacking the saviours.

    The entire world understands that Kiir is part of the problem, not the solution, that including his murderous kleptocratic mob.

    Time to go in exile now Kiiir

    • factual

      Deang, you have every right to hate kiir but do equally know that majority dinka also hate Riek. So when you seek stability in south sudan you must rule out riek and other will equally do the same to kiir.

  • Lomuchie

    Please do not rush to judge Dr Machar; he is still recovering. I do, however support your sentiment. There is no way the status of the agreement can be brought back, nor is there a pathway for IO to bring back the mediators to the table. Riek thus needs to think deep and big. I suggest the following line of action:

    1. Either, the IO seizes the oilfields and Upper Nile and Unity states to form a parallel government, where the Chinese and Sudan will have to pay their dues, and finally bring back the Troika and IGAD;

    2. Or, IO marches to Juba and overthrow the government and set up a new system.

    These to me are the only 2 ways forward. The choice of either of them will depend on where IO feel strongest, militarily.

  • GatNor

    As far as I am concern we need a war ready leader and not Machar who time and times again has shown his weakness by appeasing the Jaang and the international communities whose solution to the conflict does not materialises to be consistence and durable enough meet the expectations of the millions of suffering South Sudanese of whom many have made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives standing with Machar for the cause of liberation.

    I personally don’t see the logic in maintaining Machar as a war leader when in fact he is nothing of the sort. I am also convinced that a coalition of war ready generals must be forge as a way forward in revitalizing the frontline commitments and strategies as expressed by the individual “diehard” supporter David Pathot Bol.

    I cannot emphasised it enough how urgently we need like minded, well seasoned characters like Gen. Peter Gadet Yak to be back on the scenery with unrestricted authority to execute this war. ..but of course that would be wishful thinking.

  • He is the one who had destroyed his own life through GREEDY of Highest position while he was in the high position.

    • GatNor

      Beek(AGUMUT),

      I know most Jaang don’t care to make any logical sense these days as long as they feasts on lies, deceptions delusional make beliefs for lunch, breakfast and dinner.. You on the other hand dude have proven worst by far. Machar will take over the presidency whether you Jaang like it or not.

      • Ok take over by force if that is the best way you think that will solve your egoism ,but make he sure that he will never ever become the president even through a BALLOT.

      • I can’t say Dinka are DAUNTLESS,but it is you who is going to tell undaunted to stop negativities towards others. Why make you to dislike them even not all of them are in the government.

  • This is true. Riek seemed to be too pro diplomacy than belligerence. It even a most cost him his own life let alone his bodyguards by accepting to come to Juba with clubs for arms, the type of arms these days possessed by civilians. As we give time to Kiir an his ecolytes, he get to arm himself from enemies of success in South Sudan to get even stronger day by day.

    The whole country is now brewing with hate. Arm the people and it will just be over in a week.

  • Machar was told to kept his mouth shut until the dateline for regional deployment is complete before his troops take any action against Juba. that’s the bottom-line.

  • baaak the black crow and any every one who hates democracy, please be reminded that in greater, we know that only one person can hold the bow and the arrow at the same time. this gives a right aim to the killing of the anima we want to kill

  • So, let me explain to you. The long travel of DR. Machar from Juba to Congo via the equatoria bushes tells you that we have chosen him to be the holder of the bow and the shooter of the arrow. We have given him his support and we are ready to face you the mathiang anyoor

  • Mr. Gatnor its not every DINKA that love or like Kiir. Iam a Jang myself but I support Riek, where does this put me?
    Most of my brothers NUER seem to have shifted their attention from Kiir to the entire Dinka community but that wrong I guess what iam trying to say is that I also want him gone.

    • I meant what make you to dislike them. That guy is not for Nuer than only his little name in the History book. Think twice even he went with many people to Poland because his son was getting marriage there,while his people back home were Barefooted. Try hard to change your life than lingering in government funds.

    • GatNor

      Kabush,

      You don’t quite get it I think. I am not in any way soliciting approval of acceptant from 1 Jang or a million in a naïve disregards of my rights. Therefore I make no apology because its not my fault should you fall within the cracks of 0.01% bracket. The fewer # of % you find yourself the more the conflict reveal itself to be on tribal lines. Correct?

  • I agreed with him for a while because the whole world are waiting for his first speech either war or peace. But if he insisted to advocate for peace after IGAD consultation than I will agreed with your proposal of war. There is no peace any longer but let him try while we think about next options

    • Oh dear a speech to whom. We will not support you,ask our people and they will simply tell you that your Nuer have to sort it out by themselves. A Guy dying who had damaged with his own future.

  • Jongchithaach

    I just wish Dr Riek could have waited for elections instead of becoming a rebel. One can never be called a hero by killing his own people and the same applies to KIIR.

    And for those advocating for war, shame on u. Haven’t we lost enough already?
    I agree with Kabush, the problem is not DINKA, the problem is KIIR.
    We are putting everyone at risk by preaching war. C’mon guys, we can do better than this.

    • GatNor

      Nothing will convince you Jongchithaach that the killing spree that Kiir and his henchmen are involve in currently will not stop anytime soon.

      I mean before and after election even if Machar decides to NOT seek leadership position. All the hideous crimes will spike to new highs.

      I wonder if all hypocrites would perceive the opposite rather had Machar actually intended to put in motion a violent and a hostile takeover of leadership prior to 2013. Would the level of dehumanizing and looking to kill Machar be any different today? I think it would be all the same because macharaphobia has got them all stupid and wicked to a point of no return.

  • Shilluk and particularly Nuer can’t be trusted. Be very very carefully about Nuer internationally because they damage us through begging. They are our people,but don’t trust them where ever you go,especcially with NGO.
    They had done that 1990’s in Eastern Europe,but we had managed to protect ourselves with out help from nobody.

  • Ras Aweil

    March to Juba if there is a way in…… tired and sick of your foolish claims that one day you will over run Juba and install the leader of your choice.

  • Chulbaar

    Dr. Riek is dead guys. He’s not alive. The writer who posted this article has indirectly told u exactly what happened. No one of his die hard supporters has met or found Dr. Riek at Al-Amal hospital…so, Sudan, James Gatdet and the UN were all lying about Dr. Machar’s whereabouts. He died last month on 8th in Juba… Take it or leave it and it’s a truth…

    • GatNor

      In another way Chulbaar, you are saying that the UN staffs in the Congo all the way up to UN’s HQ’s press briefing room are also involve in the cover up of Machar’s death because you date(the 8th) is quite earlier than the day Machar was alleged to have been picked along the South Sudan – Congo border. Something is not adding up regarding your speculation.
