Lou Nuer Community Association of Australia Condemn the Defection of Brig. General Lul Ruai Koang, the former spokesperson of SPLM/SPLA- IO


20th Feb 20th, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The Lou Nuer Community Association Of Australia Inc. hereafter condemn in the strongest term possible and denounce the defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai Koang back to Salva Kiir government.

It is to be made abundantly clear that this individual defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai Koang back to the dictatorial regime in Juba is a personal surrender to the very system we have been fighting against for over thirteen months and does not constitute the interest nor the position of Lou Nuer people toward this current conflict.

Lou Nuer sons and daughters in the diaspora denounce this defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai back to the dictatorial incumbent regime. We urge all Lou Nuer youth, politicians, military leaders, traditional leaders and the general public to remain united and never to be divided by such personal surrender.

We must remain united and continue to support and stand firm with SPLM-IO for our people to attain justice, freedom and equality. We must never compromise our human dignity or betray our heroic people’s struggle only to be trap by bribery, opportunistic political position and blood money. We’re far better than that.

Our people collective interest, the reputation and image of Lou Nuer People is supreme to that of individual or group and must not be used or misuse by individual who forsake or betray justice for the victims of December 15th Juba massacre and that of this conflict, this is not acceptable.

Brig. General Lul Ruai Koang has tarnish and destroy his then thriving personal reputation and by returning to Juba he had betray justice for the door-to-door ethnic cleansing of innocent Nuer civilians and the victims of this conflict.

We the people of Greater Lou Nuer will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with Dr Riek Machar the C-in C of SPLM/SPLA-IO and the rest of the country to tussle and bring justice to December 15th victims.

Lou Nuer Community Association of Australia Inc. would like to reassure our comrades in the movement under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Tany that;

  • Lou Nuer people will never betray accountability and justice to the victims of December 15th.
  • Lou Nuer people will never stab the movement at the back, because we did not took arm neither to serve individuals interest nor to accumulate personal wealth. Therefore no one, not a single person in Lou Nuer Holly land will support Brigadier Lul Ruai. His defection does not represent the interest of community as a whole but himself.
  • The leadership and people of Lou Nuer in Australia are substantially standing behind the movement and the leadership of the movement and will continue to do so until our goal is achieved.
  • We will never rest until perpetrators of the December 15th are brought to book.
  • We will never cease our support to SPLM-IO until our people are liberated from the dictatorial regime in Juba.

Long live Borchaar

Long live Lou Nuer

Long live and Viva SPLM-IO

May the almighty God bless the People of Federal Republic South Sudan

Mr. Musa Abraham Gatluak

You guys must stop talking about this young man Br, general Lul Ruai Koang. Why are you wasting times talking about the spokesman when everyone has done it in the past. Dr. Lam Akol, Dr. Riek Machar and Arok Thon Arok were all surrenders to Sudanese government including Kerubino Kuanyin Bol and William Nyoun Bany. All these Top leaders have done many times for example, Dr. Riek Machar, in 2002 he decided to called the late chairman in Uganda on the phone saying, he want to come back to SPLA/SPLM under him before peace agreement to be ink for finally and the late chairman told him to talk to Salva Kiir Mayardit and finally, Salva Kiir welcome him to come back. Dr. Lam Akol did same thing running away from Khartoum government saying, he was one the SPLM membership and he would like to come back before peace to be signed and immediately, he was welcome by the late chairman Dr. John Garang de Mabior.

I want you to stop talking about this young man Br, Lul Ruai Koang, because he was not the first person and leader to surrender back to her government. Apparently, about 95% of the Nuers in the SPLA or Militias have been going back and forth for many years like that. I can only remember James Hoth Mai in the SPLA side and Marial Benjamin on the SPLM side were they only Nuer left during Nasir faction of former vice president rebellion and the rest were collaborate with Sudan’s government so what is the big deal now?. Taban Deng Gai has done two times and all these generals were absolutely selves promoting under late Paulino Matip Nhial and Dr. Riek Teny, we all know them were they came from and who promoted them. Please keep singing about Br.general Lul Ruai Koang but in reality you will hears others news shortly.

I know this Lul from Ruiru High school when Riek Machar signed an agreement with Khartoum Government some Arabs from Khartoum came and asked us to support them so Riek can be given south Sudan, He Lul kong was in support of those Arabs. he told us that south Sudan was going to be given to Riek Machar. so I stood up and I told everyone in the meeting to mark my world, and I told them that Riek will not be given south Sudan. I told Him and the rest of the south Sudanese students not to buy any of that, and I told everyone at the meeting that Riek Machar will come back to the SPLA or he can be killed because Khartoum will not give him south sudan.

that became true, and Riek Machar came back to Join John Grang. Lul is not a reliable person he can be easily bought I don’t trusted him since then
