Sept 11, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– I am seizing this opportune time to write to you this open letter hoping you will have time to read it.

First and foremost, I would like to reassure you that Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon is very much healthy. With resilient, he has emerged out of the 40-day ordeal of your conspiracy stronger and healthier. HE HAS FULLY RECOVERED PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY AND MEDICALLY. All the baseless and unfounded fabrications by your social media warmongers are just but wishful thinking directed to the PEOPLES’ LEADER on the basis of rancor.

Besides, the likes of Gordon Buay Malek, Lul Ruai Koang and Steve Puoch Riek are justifying their pays when fabricating lies about the health of Dr. Riek Machar; they fabricate flirts and flatters meant to appease the god-fathers (you and kiir) for fat accounts from the blood monies. The above named stooges-Buay, Lul, Puoch- are LAUGHING-STOCKS of the world for they have been rated as the top liars of the world.


Allow me to use some few references of the Holy Bible that are germane to your conspiracy in Juba: “Lucifer had wisdom, beauty, ability, perfection, and yet he wanted more; he wanted to be worshiped like God. But God does not share His glory, nor does He permit another to receive worship. So before Lucifer had a chance to make his move, he was removed from the presence of God. Cast out of heaven like a bolt of lightning, Lucifer was stripped of his beauty, his position, and his rights to heaven. Satan’s constant attempt ever since has been to oppose the mighty plan of God. He even attempted tempt Jesus to sin and worship him…..” Holy Bible. This exactly what you did! You were venerated by Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon and he appointed you to be the Chief Negotiator for the SPLM/A-IO thinking that you had wisdom and abilities to do so; however, you still needed more. You were member of: SPLM Political Bureau; SPLM National Liberation Council; National Convention and also you were the Chairperson of SPLM Peace and Reconciliation National Committee; nevertheless you wanted more. You were appointed you as the Minister of Mining by SPLM-IO leadership in the TGoNU as well as overseeing ARCISS implementation, but your thirst for more power never get quenched. In search of more powers, you along with Judases: Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, Thoi Chany Reat, Chiangjiek and perhaps Hussein Mar connived with rotten kiir regime and JCE in conspiracy to assassinate Dr. Machar so that you usurp the top leadership of SPLM-IO without observing and respecting democratic processes and institutions; however, before realizing the scam, you were purged from SPLM-IO by the leadership and thereafter by default you had lost all rights and privileges accorded to you by virtue of being SPLM-IO member: you are not any more member of SPLM Political Bureau; SPLM National Liberation Council; National Convention and also not the Chairperson of SPLM Peace and Reconciliation National Committee and Minister of Mining in TGoNU for SPLM-IO. Instead of being for the just cause of the people of South Sudan, you aimed for your personal gains and vehemently objected the ideals of SPLM/A-IO. You opposed the founding principles of the people’s Movement and subsequently you are stripped naked. Your last resort to assassinate Dr. Machar has failed miserably; in fact, the details your (you and Paul malong) initial plan of killing both Dr. Machar and salva kiir are unfolding. Sooner or later, the cat will be out of the bag.


You claimed that you are implementing peace smoothly with president salva kiir; but where is that peace? The very peace that the people of South Sudan are longing for, the ARCISS, is the one you and salva kiir are dismantling. You have violated all the provisions of the ARCISS: you un-ceased the fire by ordering the assassination of Dr. Machar and the subsequent offensive attacks on the SPLA-IO forces, you dissolved the Security Arrangements by agreeing to only one army, you accepted the 28 states………basically you abrogated the all the provisions of the ARCISS and thus, what you are up to is not peace but NEW DEAL with anti-peace elements of rotten kiir regime and JCE.


I come to believe my friend who told me that you are adopted child from Arab biological parents because you are able to find comforts when heinous crimes are being unleashed on Nuer and other ethnic groups by security agents and militias of rotten kiir regime. You and those disgruntled and desperate politicians are soothed the more when: women are gang raped, young girls are raped and defiled, men forced to commit incest at gun points, somebody is forced to cannibal at gun point, hundreds of children died of preventable illnesses………………etc. The more the atrocities are perpetrated by kiir militias, the more you appraise him for smooth implementation of fake peace. It is a mistaken identity that you call yourself a Nuer; you are an half cast like Saddam Hussein who murdered thousands of Iraqis to impose himself as legitimate child of his father. For being callous and complacent to Nuer and other ethnic groups’ plight shows that you have no Nuer blood and thereby you are unjustifiable enriching yourself with their blood monies.


The people of South Sudan are fully aware of your treachery and double dealings right from the inception of SPLM/A in 1980s, to Split of 1991, to merging of 2002, to the eruption of conflict in 2013, and then to the Conspiracy of Dr. Machar Assassination of August 8th, 2016. The people of South Sudan, from the old to the young have known your tricks well. They people of South Sudan are very mindful of how you abused your powers as the Governor of Unity State from 2005 up until 2011: you sexually exploited women and girls, you grabbed lands, embezzled the 2% of Unity State revenue, you tortured and exposed citizens to hardships to forcefully command their supports…….. and perpetrated many more abuses beyond description. The people of South Sudan cannot and will never support you. No one supports you apart from those disgruntled and desperate politicians whom you cowed, those renegade officers whom you lured with blood monies and few infamous individuals. Otherwise, Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon commands the civil principality. He fully controls the SPLM/A-IO as the Chairman and the Commander-in-Chief; he is being venerated internationally as well for always espousing peace.


The fate that waits you is just like that of Haman: “…Look! The gallows, fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai, who spoke good on the king’s behalf, is standing at the house of Haman. ”Then the king said, “Hang him on it!” So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai”, Esther 7:9, 10.

Dr. Machar wanted peace and had worked hard to bring lasting peace to South Sudan along with reforms so that South Sudan can prosper and be the ‘AFRICAN TIGER IN DEVELOPMENT’; nevertheless, you connived to assassinate him together with rotten kiir regime and JCE. You forced him to an ordeal of 40 days in wilderness; however, he survived all your scams and NOW COMES YOUR PAY BACK.
