August 5, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– I, Hon. Mary Jok Bukjiok, would like to inform the people of South Sudan, the whole world and the Movement that I am very much loyal to the legitimate First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan and Chairman of the SPLM-IO, Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon. I condemn, in the strongest terms possible, what Taban and his small crown hotel group, has done. I want to inform the media that I was genuinely nominated by my Fangak Community and was appointed by the Chairman, Dr. Riek Machar; based on the will of my people constituency/community.

Therefore, the “crown hotel coup plotters” cannot purport to have appointed me again in a desperate attempt to gain support and widen their narrow Base. my loyalty is to the people of Fangak… and the Movement led by Dr. Riek Machar Teny.  My legitimate party leader is in the bush and my community is in UNMISS POCs in Juba while 99 percent of my community members are in Fangak (homeland), Phow State.

I cannot and never be party to this illegal ‘crown hotel coup’ on the peace agreement. I am a woman guided by moral values and a liberator of my people, just like my late husband Commander William Nyuon Bany, who was also killed by Taban. Taban wanted to kill Dr. Riek the same way he killed my husband, CDR William Nyuon Bany. I cannot accept to be part of this murderous and illegal government of Taban and Lol Gatkuoth.

I want to inform all our people not to lose hope and the day will come when we shall return back to the genuine path of peace under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny. I urge my people to stand and support the Movement under the wise and able leadership of Dr. Riek Machar and not to be deceived by Taban Deng and Lol Gatkuoth, who are after positions/interests and money.


Viva Dr. Machar!

Viva the peace loving people of South Sudan!

Viva my Community of Fangak!

God bless you all.

Taban showed up at the IGADs+ summit and the door was slammed shut at his face. IGADs knows that Machar fired thr man recently and know that the FVP they signed on during the peace agreement was Machar. It was a shocking sight to see the poodle(Taban) dancing and singing to a different tune from what he helped negotiated.

The tell, tell signs that Taban and Lol Gatkuoth are doomed are showing up with devastating affects and the violent coup attempted against the leadership of SPLM/A-In-Opposition is rapidly backfiring against Kiir’s Faction of SPLM/A-In-Gov. The tribal gov is so far trying to maintain the status quo by yielding to the Regional Intervention Forces allowing them to enter South Sudan’s sovereign territory without condition. This means the cowards are that close to begging on their knees. Advise to those who have unknowingly accepted any appointment from Taban is for them to quickly make a public address and save themselves the pain and anguish of embarrassment of being associated to Taban and Lol Gatkuoth, Dhieu Mathok Wol, Kiir and Malong, JCE and to immediately disassociate oneself from such bad news type of people and groups. IGADs+ clearly said they will imposed groups and individual sanctions against violators of cessation of hostility, peace agreement human rights abusers as well as war criminals. As per the August Peace Agreement frustrated and finally violated by July the groups and individuals I have mentioned above, Taban and the rest are also perfect candidates should sanctions be rewarded to..

Remember Peter in bible when betrayed Jesus.
time is coming when they who betrayed their country, their brothers in love of food and money will hang themselves that sad day when truth judges this Country/ Nation.
For those suffered in pursued of peace and harmony of their brethren and Nation will be lifted high and shine like brightest sun. and rewarded by their God.
Oh God my your will be done

That’s what you think shall never take you no where. God forbid. Taban never compared to any leader in the south sudan.
