March 17, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– First and foremost, we the Eastern Nile State in Diaspora would like to inform the African Union, United Nations, UNMISS and civil societies around the globe that we strongly condemns the violence which has erupted on February 17th & 18th , 2016 in the UNMISS Camp in Malakal. The cause of the conflict was fueled by some elements of Shilluk politicians who were against the creations of 28 states in South Sudan. They were behind the recent attacks in Malakal as a form of destructions of the 28 states, and as a technique aiming to destabilize Malakal.
The conflict was well coordinated by the opposition leader Dr.Lam Akol who is the current leading opposition group in the country, Anyito who is the Member of Parliament, and General Johnson Ulony who is a head of Tiger Battalion and Agwelek rebels. Even though, Malakal has never been a Shilluk land, these groups were not happy about the creations of new states in the country that annex of Malakal to Eastern Nile state as their head quarter. The Shilluk politicians kept inciting and mobilizing their youth to carry on any attacks in the UNMISS camp if they get chances, and that is exactly what those Shilluk politicians are planning. This is not the first time IDPS exchanged hands with each other.
We, the Eastern Nile state are urging the government of the Republic of South Sudan to hold accountable politicians like Anyito, Peter Aduok and Lam Akol who incites ethnic wars through media in a form of creative and abusive used of the freedom of expression. We do as well Urge ethnic politicians from Shilluk communities to stop politicizing hate and preaching of atrocities and accept dialogues with the Eastern Nile state because war shall never be the solution to this matter nor shall it solve any problem at all.
Furthermore, we the Eastern Nile State have strongly condemns the UNMISS peacekeeping forces in South Sudan for failing to protect the civilians inside Malakal couple weeks ago. It is their failure because nowhere in the world that the United Nations have abandoned the vulnerable people. Where in the world are IDPS allowed to stay under the umbrella of UNMISS with guns? Is the UNMISS in South Sudan against the UN resolution for protecting the IDPS or is there a cover up dealt going on here?
More explanations and investigation need to be independently conducted against every UNMISS Camp in South Sudan to find out exactly what’s behind their tactics in the ROSS. How did guns entered into Malakal UNMISS camp? Therefore, it is UNMISS’s failed to monitor the activities of the displace persons under their care, which victimizes women and girls for raping daily by rebels, while guns are being transported into the camp at the present of the peacekeeping forces.
It seems Like UNMISS in South Sudan have failed their mandate to protect the innocent people completely, and to mark you, this is not the first time; the Jieng IDPS ethnic groups in the Malakal Camps were isolated and brutally killed in the watch of UNMISS peacekeepers. We, the Eastern Nile state urge the United Nations to pay more attention to their peacekeepers staffs in South Sudan not to let this negligence happened again. Otherwise, the cover up and what the UNMISS is doing in South Sudan would be a violation of human right of which you will be accountable for it because in the court of law, the incident was pure negligence.
The Eastern Nile state wants to inform her neighbouring communities that we are peace loving community in South Sudan and we are very certain that you know it very well. However, this has been taken wrongly as our weakness by our neighbouring communities in and out. We, the Eastern Nile state are asking all the peace loving communities in South Sudan and in around the globe to help us to condemns this massacre which has happened in the watch of United Nations peacekeeping forces in Malakal POC site.
