Feb 15, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Government of South Sudan Minister has run to Canada with 1,000,000 USD cash during the weekend, a very reliable source close to the person of interest has disclosed to Nyamilepedia.

Minister for Presidency Hon. Awan Guol Riak escaped to Canada with 1,000,000 USD, attempts to intercept and arrest him failed. Hon. Awan is the Minister in the office of the President, under his ministerial portfolio, he is tasked to keep hard cash in President’s office. The cash in question was withdrawn purposely for President’s international trips and Government Diplomacy expenses but Awan Guol Riak chose to run away immediately the money was released to his care.

Angrily reacting to the upsetting news when relayed to him, President Salva Kiir urgently redirected his Director of External Security Thomas Duoth Guet – who was on official duty in Nairobi at the time the event occurred – to fly to Kampala to counter Awan and arrest him. All attempts to arrest him failed; the revelation is that he (Awan) properly coordinated his escape to Canada in advance.


Hon. Awan Guol Riak is a Canadian citizen, once worked in various grocery stores in Toronto, Ontario – Canada before going to Juba to land on the Ministry for Presidency in the Government of South Sudan.

It better be real and if it isn’t someone should die of shame for reporting lies. Mr Awan could never done such a shameful thievery unless of course he has psychological disorders of which some people aren’t aware. A person like Awan who has lived in a Western country such as Canada is expected to know better than that.

He might have escaped authorities in Africa as alleged but the good news is he can get apprehended with money and that amount will be sent back to where it belongs. Authorities in Canada could imprison him or indict him to South Sudan where he will get his sentencing which can put him behind bars.

He probably has gone to Canada on an unofficial visiting and soon be back to Juba. Maybe the whole story is a character assassination plot aimed at tarnishing his reputation. Fingers are crossed at what happens next.

That is DInkas mind. All they can do better is to kill, loot and steal

Bol Gatjang February 15, 2016 at 7:36 pm

Yep! I have told u guys specially Nuer and Equotarials people that those Dinka including Kiir are bunch of thieves. This is serious business and the International community must have to scrutinize this action very closely. This is had been going on for all this time and it’s only desire of all Dinka to get of Nuer and loot all the money. If you are reading this article, Do you think it was only him? Not at all Dinka. Their intention is murderers,tortured, looting, rapes,destruction and pretext of talking on behalf of government.

Both of you (Dinka and Nuer) are the two faces of a single coin. You are the same in all aspects. Whether South Sudan is ruled by Kiir or Riek is the same . The problem that exists now during Kiir’s presidency, will also continue to exist if Riek takes over . Therefore, as all monkeys are the same without any beautiful one among them, there is also no difference between the Dinka rule and the Nuer rule. So, stop pretending to be better than the other because you are all the same like monkeys. There is no beautiful one to be selected between you two.

Scramble over the money and killing innocence Nuer had been the main theme for Dinka since independent of South Sudan. We gave them both Power and money but yet our vulnerable folks.

Bol Gatjang February 15, 2016 at 10:48 pm

I mean we gave them power and money but yet killed our vulnerable folks.

See, goons and looters at work. This is what they are good at, stealing puplic money without remorse. Dinkas are fucking thieves!.

We all remember that incident few years ago, airport security personnel in United Kingdom apprehended another ugly Jieng thief with huge amounts of stolen South Sudanese Dollars, just imagine!. Dinkas pillaging doesn’t know any boundary.

Let’s wait and see how things develop from here, if this story is true, then the security in Canada will do its job, catching and processing the fugitive.

Don’t insult one man who have decided to take his cut of loots a lil too early on before the whole fiasco is over. In really he was buddy, buddy with Juba’s J1 criminals so he can have his share of the pie.I don’t blame him for running with that dirty money. I would do exactly the same but double down. Congratulations Mr Awan & good luck feasting on that money.

GatNor February 16, 2016 at 9:35 pm

I see a bunch of thieves here crying out loud “thief” In South Sudan somebody’s hand is deep in the next man’s pocket. I just got rid of a pest that I found living in my pocket for the last 4month. I said if bullshit don’t walk today then bullshit must learn to fly todsy because your time there is over like the biblical end of the world. Same shapeless, shameless creature is walking now without any improvement. I mean try being in my pocket for 24hrs and you literally will evolved into a Jew or something. Four months in my pocket and no change?. That was the amazing part of it all. i mean even a leech gets fatter. Lesson learned.

Mr. Gatjang,
Why do you insult Dinka as a tribe? Dinka has not done any thing bad to any body in South Sudan. If some individuals misbehave, then they should be singled out intead of generalising Dinka.
Moreover, the word Gat in Thok Nuer means a son and Jang means Dinka. If you are Gatjang, then you are a son of Dinka. Why insulting your parents?

To Whom It May Concern!,

What a shame!!!,

“Man walks out of his house, sees this snail lying on his porch. So he picks it up, chucks it into the backyard. Snail bounces off a rock busts its shell up all the shit….,lands on the grass, snail lies there dying…., but snail didn’t die. Soon it can crawl again, and one day snail heads back to the front of the house, finally after about a year, the little guy crawls back on the porch. Right then the man walks out of his house in his way to work, he sees this ignorant snail again, so he looks at it and said, WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?…., indeed what the fuck is your problem???”.

Here in Juba, the water is hot and no mice are friendly, either you duck or you take it like a man!!!.

this is too much, but we who have taken strong stand to pushing for genuine reforms Call this event “NICE INGREDIENTS” for push up for FEDERAL RULE. Let the thieves be collected together and be sent to their states.
