March 10th, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)- The Genocide of the Nuer is not only confined to the civilians who have nothing to do with the internal party rift of the SPLA which triggered the conflict. But it is still spreading to soldiers even though the conflict which started as a massacre of Nuer is entering into its second year. The Dinka are still unable to separate Nuer soldiers who put the political rivalry between the tribal President Kiir and Dr. Riek behind them and thought they are serving their nation.
It actually did not turn out to be the case as Nuer soldiers who continue to serve their master, Salva Kiir, who has brought unbearable pain in the Nuer society, continue to die needlessly.
On 8th March, 2015, two genocidal government soldiers from the Nuer ethnic group of Upper Nile state were intentionally killed by a soldier from the Dinka ethnic group of Bar el Ghazel where President Kiir hails from.
The perpetrator was aiming to randomly kill all the six innocent Nuer soldiers just because they were Nuer. But to their luck, four escaped and two were unlucky being crushed to death by a tank driven by a soldier from the Dinka tribe.
The incident happened in the Maban country of Upper Nile state. Some of the Nuer soldiers who survived the attack said that the motive was found to be an order from a general who also happened to be from the Dinka tribe. He ordered the Dinka soldier to carry out the attack against his Nuer comrades.
The dead soldiers were both from Jikany Nuer of Gaajack who thought they were serving the interest of Kiir to kill their Nuer fellows but to their detrimental they cannot avoid or erase their ethnicity which ultimately haunted them.
This is not the first time Nuer soldiers in the genocidal and tribal government were targeted. In one of the barracks in Juba, many Nuer soldiers who ran to UNMISS compounds were lured out to that barrack tore-join the army four months after the genocide.
These group was later killed in their hundreds and the tribal government concealed the crime indicating that the dispute was a pay issue. Ostensively they were indiscriminately killed for just for being Nuer, the same strategy Kiir’s private army used in the three days of December Nuer ordeal in 2013.
The killing of Nuer by Dinka whether be a soldier or a civilian is an ongoing process. Whenever the Dinka suffers casualties in battles now being fought throughout South Sudan, they turn to their Nuer colleges who serves in the genocidal government for revenge just because they are Nuer.
The massacre of the Nuer students and army recruits in Mapel in Northern Bar el Ghazel state is a perfect example. It was started by a Dinka woman whose husband was killed in Upper Nile. Upon seeing a Nuer civilian in the Market predominantly inhabited by the Dinka, she screamed like hell and that prompted her relatives to go after the Nuer and killed him.
The scuffle continue to where Nuer recruits were staying inside Mapel. A lot of them who could not believe that such a thing could happen were cold bloodily killed.
As the peace negotiation has completely failed, it is highly likely that any Nuer in every location in South Sudan controlled by Dinkas will certainly be a victim. It is advisable that Nuer should leave for UNMISS compounds or safer places under the control of the SPLA in Opposition.
It is advisable that you do not become hesitant about making such a decision because no matter how hard you try to please Kiir, you will always be a target. If Dinkas could kill Nuer who fight alongside them in their determination to kill or finish other Nuer who want to get justice done for the Genocide in Juba, who else could they spare? You answer for yourself.
