June 4, 2021 — Responding to a recent interview by the former Chief Administrator of the Greater Pibor Administrative Area, the Gawaar Youth Association condemns the former governor for providing misleading information on what happened in Pibor area.

According to Gawaar Youth Association, the recent skirmishes in Pibor were carried out by a group of youth from different communities from Jonglei state who are aggrieved by Murle’s youth activities in their areas.

Speaking to Nyamilepedia, the Chairman of Gawaar Youth Association in Juba, Emmanuel Gawaar Paul,  acknowledged that their youth participated in the attack in Greater Pibor but said youth from Uror, Akobo, Bor, Duk, Nyirol and Twic East were part of the group.

“Yes, of course, we have learned and acknowledged that those individuals from Ayod, Uror, Akobo, Bor, Duk, Nyirol and Twic  county went and carried out an attack in Greater Pibor.” Emmanuel Gawaar Paul said

According to Gawaar Paul, GYA urges the general public to disregard the interview of Mr. Joshua Konyi that was published by Radio Tamazuj on March 26, 2021.

“GYA urges the general public to disregard this magical thinking allegation from Hon, Joshua Konyilrer who does not have evidence on this matter. Yes, of course, we have learned and acknowledged that those individuals from Ayod, Uror, Akobo, Bor, Duk, Nyirol and Twic  county went and carried out an attack in Greater Pibor.” Gawaar Youth Association demands.

“These are mixed individuals from the neighboring counties and they should not only be counted on the individual community which is the Gawaar Nuer in Ayod county” Gawaar Paul added.

Responding to the former Chief Administrator’s concern on why the Gawaar Youth would come all the way from Ayod county to attack areas in Greater Pibor, the Gawaar Youth leader said his community has been a victim of Murle’s youth offensives, raids, abductions and killings of innocent civilians, mentioning a few cases extending back to 2018.

“This is the same thing to us too, to know the genesis of this problem from our perspective view murle are the one who start attacking Ayod County. In June 2018 in a village of Mar, four kraals of cattle and one tukul got burned, 11 children were abducted and 2 women were killed and three other women wounded by Murle youth in Ayod County according to an eye witness. In Feb 2019, Murle youth abducted 6 children and killed 2 old men in Wechbuol Boma of Pajiek Payam;

“In Feb 2021 Murle Murdered 2 persons in Leik Village and have taken 89 heads of cattle, also in March 2021 around Paluony village they killed 6 people and 372 heads of cattle were taken, and in March 2020, 7 youth were killed while taking their cattle for grazing in Tuok Village around Ayod Town and 124 heads of cattle have gone missing, and in May 2021 murle Youth attack the area of Pieth of which six (6) persons were killed and 253 heads of cattle were taken. Yesterday On the 3rd of June 2021 at 6:15 local time Murle killed one person in the area of Paluony and wounded one person. Now the wounded person is being hospitalized at Ayod PHCC.” The Gawaar Youth statement further added.

Responding to Mr. Konyi’s allegation that 44, 962 herds of cattle were raided, and 112 children and 82 women were abducted, the Gawaar Youth Association denied knowledge of such numbers arguing that it is against their norms and culture.

“Regarding his allegations, the Gawaar Youth Association and Ayod County Commissioner are unaware of neither 44,962 herds of cattle nor 112 children and 82 women abducted at all, to narrow down about children abduction Gawaar Nuer and the entire Nuer Tribe don’t believe in child abduction because it is an offence according to our custom and norms.” Gawaar Paul said.

The youth leader emphasized how peaceful Gawaar Community has been and called on Murle youth to embrace peace rather than resorting to senseless inter-communal violence.

“Gawaar Community has been known as a peaceful community in the history of South Sudan whereby we have no search conflict with our neighbours.” Gawaar Paul said.

“However, GYA urges the Murle youth to embrace peace with their neighbours so that we stay in peace and harmony.” He added.

On the other hand, the youth leader calls on the national government to take note of Murle youth’s activities in their areas alleging that they are planning to attack them.

“We have therefore learned that Murle is planning to attack Ayod county, the message which we want to send to the National and State government to warn them before anything happens in near future.” Gawaar Paul added.

“Gawaar Youth Association Condemns Former Governor Joshua Konyi for misleading the public on Pibor-Jonglei crises”

Gawaar Youths should know that the whole thing was ‘a fabrication or fake news’. There are some enemies of peace and against South Sudan’s progress. The Bor, the Nuer, Anyuak Jie and Muerle youths and elders want to move on with their lives. The recently concluded peace conference is a testimony that there is no mucking around.

People want progress. violence, insecurity and development don’t go together.

Yes, there are elements in the UN, the NGOs, UNMISS and some creeps here in the region, who want to South Sudan as unstable as possible. And the ulterior motive behind all these cheap and dirty machinations, are:

Make South Sudan a failed state like Eastern Democratic republic of Congo (D.R.C). The UN has been in Congo since 1960th and the UN project had been there. So where is peace in DR Congo? I bet, some South Sudanese with brains would know that there isn’t and there isn’t going to be any time soon.
To Make South Sudan as their so-called CENTRE of UNIVERSE——Use South Sudan as geopolitical chess game or football just like then Eastern Democratic republic of Congo (D.R.C), Central Africa republic (C.A.R), some of their West African countries, some of their Southern Africa of Angola, Mozambique, Abesh (so-called ethiopia) prostitute, some of their Middle Eastern countries, some of their Asian countries, Eastern European countries, some of their South American or Caribbean countries during their so-called COLD WAR.

And the vermins/parasites think/hope that they would re-unite our country and our people with our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, the evils we hate death and then the vermins/parasites would then go and brag that their so-called capitalism had prevailed over their so-called Socialism or communism——North Sudan is being projected as a capitalist country and that South Sudan is their Socialism or communism And Finally that

3.The so-called AFRICA UNITY and REGIONAL INTEGRATION being propagated by foreign criminals and secret societies piece of trashes of former South African piece of trash, Mr. Thabo Mbeki, current president of Rwanda, Mr. Paul Kagame low life, former president of Tanzania, Mr. Jakaya Kikwete, current president of Kenya, Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, his rival, Mr. Raila Odinga, former Abesh (so-called ethiopia) prime Minister, Mr. Hailemariam Desalegn and his current successor, Mr. Abiy Ahmed piece of trashes, former Nigerian president, Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, Mr. MaliK Agaar, Mr. Yasir Arman, their bunch of traitors, thieves and foreign puppets/stooges and secret societies’ criminals here in our country of Mr. Riek Machar, Mr. Lam Akol, Mr. Pagan Amuom, Ms. Rebecca Nyandeng, her ugly son, Thomas Cirillo, Mr. Majak Agoot, a then prostitute of UNMISS, Ms. Hilde Johnston

Former US president piece of charlatan, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, his then prostitute of Ms. Susan Rice (a globalist piece of trash, who even married an evil a white devil, from the devil infested island of England), Susan Paige, then South Korean’ slitty-eyed then head of UNSC Mr. Ban Ki Moon, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, a low life the evil juus (so-called israel) attack dog and some of their bunch other of creeps in between who covet our country and our people to death.

Who would want to live side by side with evils who have sold their lives and their souls to the devils, and their own end game is take ‘soil others and people’ who are way way to well ahead of them and who are going to destroyed them out of this planet earth.

Yes, South Sudan and South Sudanese people are considered the most *fools and who don’t know these creeps and low lives’ cheap and dirty intrigues. Where Mr. Pope Francis, a scrounger from Argentina, who even asked Mr. Salva Kiir and rivla, Mr. Riek Machar and went and knelt down on them as if he were to some of a god?

Where is the prostitute, Ms. queen Elisabeth of devil infested island of England and his then Husband, Greeki piece of trash, Mr. prince Philip?

Lowly informed South Sudanese fools. Pure HATRED and RACISM is here. Let any piece of low life ever ever again try.

Bring the evil white Americans, white English people, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) prostitutes, some of their Bantuses, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, their gulf Arab states financiers, their UN, their shifty NGOs, their so-called UNMISS project in South Sudan of: Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans and some of their creeps in between who attached themselves to our country and over our people like leeches or ticks. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM.

South Sudan is not part of the so-called damned ANGLO-AMERICAN empire, never has and will never ever will under the sun*. The vermins/parasites love affairs with our country and our people has gone too far. And the evils are going to be blitz out of this planet earth, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM.
