Mar 3, 2021(Nyamilepedia) — First and foremost, Mr. President, we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for the leadership role you have played in our country, on the world stage, and in the continent of Africa. Mr. President, Ruweng communities remain greatly committed to your leadership in the government of South Sudan, from the civil war to after the independence of South Sudan from North Sudan in 2011. The Ruweng Administrative Area would not be without the vision of Dr. John Garang De Mabior, and the hard work of yourself, Mr. President, to make this vision a reality. Your Excellency, this is the first time in the history of South Sudan for both the Panaruu and Alor Dinka subtribes to see themselves in an administration of their own. The Ruweng community in South Sudan and around the world continue to thank your government for bestowing on us our independent leadership, for our peace-loving people in the Westbank of the Upper Nile.

As concerned citizens of Ruweng around the world, we are asking you Mr. President to appoint a strong leader like Miabek for the Ruweng A.A. Ruweng citizens from Pariang and Biemnom have endured extreme threats for so long, from our neighboring Nuer communities in the former Unity State. Miabek is a strong leader who is one of the people – he has served Ruweng County throughout the war as a Commissioner, and in 2013 as a Deputy Governor of the former Unity State. Miabek has many years of experience with politics in the area and is the right candidate to help resolve border disputes. Accusations that Miabek was responsible for losing Ruweng territory to the tribes of Taban Deng Gai are unfounded – since before Miabek was Commissioner of Ruweng County, Taban was already in power and had already begun annexing tribal land in Ruweng territory.

Mr. President, the appointed Ruweng leaders are not working for the interests of the Ruweng people. The current Ruweng leaders are working for the interests of Taban by letting militias and cattle raiders cross the Nile River. Taban is now mobilizing Nuer militias across the Nile River into the Ruweng territory Wanhdanluel/Munga, which he renamed Rukona. Every day, Nuer from Bentiu invade Panaruu and Alor territory to steal livestock. and to claim land not rightfully theirs to gain oil production profits. Many innocent Ruweng citizens are killed by these cattle raiders. Not once has Taban spoken out against the ongoing violence and thievery at the hands of these invaders.

The current Chief of the Ruweng A.A., Mr. William Chol Awanlith, is not performing his duties to prevent the deaths of citizens at the hands of invading cattle raiders from Nuer of Bentiu. Therefore, as concerned citizens in South Sudan and from the Ruweng diaspora, we ask you Mr. President to appoint Mr. Miabek Lang as Chief of the Ruweng A.A. We also ask you Mr. President to appoint our Ruweng son Mr. Theji De Guor as Police Commissioner in 2021. Mr. Guor is more than qualified, as he has already trained as a police officer and currently works in Ruweng A.A. in the Criminal Investigation Department. For your government to help restore insecurity in the area, Guor is the right man for the job at the right time in Ruweng.

Overall, we know that peace is the only recipe our country needs, and this will come through the cooperation from our South Sudanese communities both at home and in the diaspora. The Ruweng A.A. has endured many difficulties starting from 1991 to 2005, and again from 2013 to now. The people of Ruweng are a strong people, and they need strong leaders in 2021. Our people continue to stand with you and your government Mr. President, to help bring peace and unity among all citizens of this great nation of the Republic of South Sudan. The sons and daughters of the Ruweng community, both in the diaspora and back home in Pariang and in Biemnom, greatly appreciate your leadership role in the Republic of South Sudan. We wish for you and your governors, from the ten states and the three administrative areas, success in implementing the peace agreement signed between the government and the opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar.
