Dec 28, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) —- Fangak Youth Union (FYU) based in Juba has decried congratulatory messages sent to President Salva Kiir Mayardit on appointing Hon James Kok Ruei as Governor of newly created Western Bieh State. South Sudan Radio and SSTV congratulated President Kiir for appointing 28 Governors including James Kok Ruei as a final step to implement the newly created 28 states of South Sudan.

“FYU wants to make it clear here to the public that this body has not issued any congratulatory message to President Kiir on the appointment of Honorable James Kok Ruei. We are not part of the broadcasted message; FYU did not support the decree and will not support the appointment of James Kok Ruea,” acting chairperson of FYU Telek Dak Majiok has said in a press statement extended to Nyamilepedia.

As per FYU claim, the Presidential decree is grabbing the land of Fangak people to the Dinka Padang community that Fangak accommodated since 1935 from the time they arrived from present day of Parieng County.

“The creation is only favoring Dinka community by having 14 states to a tribe in power which was not a national interest.”


“It’s the reward of James Kok Ruea on the killing of the massive of Fangak’s people since 2013 until present.” Said Majiok.

Fangak Youth Union alleges that Kok’s appointment as Governor of Western Bieh State is the blockade of peace at this particular time when the entire Fangak community yearns for peace.

FYU is the registered body in the Republic of South Sudan under the Ministry of Justice and is verifiable.

Eric Reeves, what led this heartless American man to the hatred of the Nuer people of South Sudan? Or is Eric Reeves a cursed or is he simply being brainwashed?

YFU is certainly right to objects to his appointment because of his dishonesty in the one hand, and more importantly the man is very scary! I never seen him before giving speeches in public until recently sometime this year (at Juba University) doing just that and it was unbelievable, I was not at the said venue to be honest with you but I was forced to turn off the TV. He is simply scary (no sense of humor and just barking like a dog to his poor audiences instead) if this is how the man speak to people in public then I don’t think the hard working citizens of Greater Fangak would be ready to go through that hell either!

Dear Youth Leader of Fangak Association, am sorry to say this statement to your administration. Social development and social services delivery was delay in South Sudan due to the Sudan suppressed for more than 150 years, and what happen today would have happened long ago if South Sudan free sovereign state. If u disown James Kok Ruai, Dr. Kok is moving and confusion remain on your door. You can do nothing better to join him, and boost on Western Bieh economy. You can torture yourself with agony of anger but no solution. The only way forward is to call him governor otherwise I would say you are against God because leaders are finger of God

Now it appears there will be no election in south Sudan because kiir acts like he owns the country therefore he will bring his friends to be governors and rule us whether you like or you don’t like,so please youths this problem is beyond talk and lambast just let fight this guy to the end because negotiation will never produce any thing in Africa form of government.
