Thursday, Oct 8, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The recent decision by President Salva Kiir to establish 28 states in the Republic of South Sudan has generated a great deal of excitement among our people, and rightly so. To many South Sudanese, the creation of more states fulfills long-expressed desire by our communities all over the country to be given control over the running of their own affairs. By issuing a Republican Order 36/2015 AD that establishes these states from the former colonial districts with some slight modifications designed to reflect among other economic viability and security concerns, President Kiir proves that he seriously listens to the popular demand of our people, and we would like to congratulate him for this wise and timely decision.

Furthermore, we would also like to extend our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to our people for finally getting their demand answered and urge them to seize this great opportunity to advance their collective welfare and wellbeing. In fact the establishment order the President issued greatly reflects the objective of this popular demand. The SPLM vision of “taking towns to the people” which, the presidential order fulfills is anchored on the need to devolve political, administrative and economic power so as to improve livelihoods of the rural communities, reduce the size of the national government to free up more resources for use by state and local governments, promote economic and social development in the rural communities and encourage and attract national based expertise and deploy it in the states and counties.

In what amounts to nose-thumbing to the long-held and long-expressed demand of our people for a greater devolution of power, it has come to our attention that some diplomatic missions accredited to South Sudan are blatantly interfering with what is clearly our country’s administrative decision. In the camp of the foreign powers that are hell-bent to meddle with our internal affairs include the European Delegation to South Sudan, and Troika (US, UK and Norway).

While we appreciate the help the governments represented by these missions have and continue to render in order to help the warring parties implement the recently signed peace agreement, we strongly demand that they completely stay out of our sovereign and independent administrative decision-making process. Like any other sovereign and independent nation, the Republic of South Sudan deserves respect to independently make decisions that it deems to suit the interests and demands of its people.

Contrary to the unsubstantiated claim that President Kiir is somehow violating the Agreement for Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan by issuing an executive order, we see the creation of more states as making it possible to enhance peace and to end the suffering of our people. As shown by the level of happiness our people have expressed towards this order, we would like to urge all the peace loving people here in our country and the world over to respect this administrative decision and push for the implementation of the peace agreement.

Ambrose Riiny Thiik and Joshua Dau: your’s man, the incompetent killer Kiir’s creation of 28 states is unconstitutional and useless. This is not about what you JCE naively decided, but a question of law.

Lualdit October 8, 2015 at 6:02 pm

Ya Satan council of Death,
Nobody celebrated, but Jaang. Don’t fool yourself. Kir is only working for your Jaang interest. Such a unilateral decision is nonbiding. It shall never be implemented until the end of transition period, in which case, all the stakeholders will have a say into which state will be created. If the international community will not act to force your nonsense, then expect real mobilization this time to get rid of your like. You people has no shame.

Opiombira Kiiriendeazele October 8, 2015 at 8:14 pm

Joshua Dau DIU,
If I recall well, you were the Minister of Religious Affairs in the Old Autonomous South Sudan. How did Lucifer became Satan? How far have you fallen? Joshua, the Original Joshua will be ashamed to share his name with you!
You Son once told me, Dinkas shall rule South Sudan forever because you Jiengs are born to rule and I now know where he heard it from!

gatdarwich October 8, 2015 at 10:11 pm

This Press release by the chairman of the Dinka wisdomless elders of the South Sudan’s national resources looters is nothing, but a complete tommyrot period. Ambrose Riiny and Joshua Dau endorsement of this unimplementable decree affirm that the wisdomless elders, tribalists, power hungry, greedy, and naturally born traitors engineered it. This is truly their minimax.

Goweng Torbaar October 8, 2015 at 10:20 pm

Just last Month before peace agreement JCE came out boldly in rejection of 21 State. Why copy and past this proposal you rejected for the first time. Jaang always are empty minded

Jacob Martin October 8, 2015 at 10:52 pm

Remember and listen carefully
Do not mislead the innocent Dinka into the lake of fire where your council is soon ending to.
you the council should have been the right people to advice your king to follow a right channel if he really want to rule the country for a long time, but you instead push him directly into teaching the wrong button
south Sudanese shall never be divided into tribal groupings in order for your council to gain cementum,no and never and that will not happen, we the citizens of this country now want to change your dirty games, you eat like pigs, finishing even the national reserve and you think you are still useful in the eyes of the people
watch out, ya heartless .you are already cursed and thrown out from the direction of directing the people of south sudan
it is now a matter of time and you shall never again appear in the south Sudan history. however there are some provisions given for those dinka who really share the same pain of their fellow south sudanese, god will protect them and they shall always excist
happy are they who have mercy on others
jeing introduced unforgetable act which has even never and ever been heard in the history of sudan and south sudan,
kill my people and make the life ones eat the flesh
what question did you have in mind, is it to tell people that you are the real killer

DINGIT NA TUGGÖ October 8, 2015 at 11:18 pm

Dr. John Garang de Mabior told all regimes in Khartoum not climb on the top of the tree and start dividing the wealth of the country unfairly. He said we all need to sit under this same tree and discuss how to divide Our wealth.
Who are the jengelon Council of dung to divide this contry into 28 states? You have been dividing the oil Money among yourselves without giving a little to us Equatorians. Not this time ya stupid elders. Let everybody come home especially Lado Gore.
Do not kick Your legs for Your last breath, just follow what the agreement has proposed hahahahahahahah………….if you do not kknow, let me try to explain to you. For example if you choose one ministry then it is followed by the three opositions ( SPLA-IO, G10, POLITICAL PARTIES) chosing Three ministries. This is how Things are going to work. And mind you, clever Lado Gore, Dr. Riak, Dr. Lam Akol Ajawin, comrade Amun plus Deng Alor…………………and I know which ministries these clever People will be chosing. I tell you Council of KARA will end up With Your real Kara in the mura.

Lado Gore will not give you a chance when he comes to Juba, you know that very well this is why you killed Sule. You will pay for that and very heavily.

GatNor October 9, 2015 at 12:04 pm

AMEN October 9, 2015 at 7:26 am

You rebel gatdarwich every thing in south sudan you are against it, even if it is some thing which is good to all citizen. Dr Riek will not bring some thing good to south sudanese. if salva kiir is bad than Riek is also bad because they were working together in Govrnment since 2005 -2013 and they didn,t provide good services to citizen. Dr FAKE will not RULE RULE this youngest Nation believe me.better Kiir he started Ruling from 2005 and he is continuing Ruling because Dr Riek machar had given him very big chance when he caused fighting in juba and claim that fighting is between Dinka and Nuer instead of saying itis government itself.

gatdarwich October 9, 2015 at 11:54 am

Amen, you are a lost creature and irredeemable monster if u naively believe that the 28 states, hastily created by the incompetent killer Kiir and the JCE(Dinka council of national resources looters), is workable and implementable. Only naturally born traitors, power- hungry, and greedy monsters of your likes, and kinsmen would blindly entertain such unconstitutional and unimplementable decree-issued by the drunkard, confused, incompetent,warlord, and illegitimate president, killer Kiir period.

AMEN October 9, 2015 at 7:37 am

in the world there is no a president for a tribe, Salva Kiir got Million of votes from all south sudanese not from Dinka Now you claim is a president of Dinka. one time to come presidential will be given to any tribe in south sudan will Dinka call that president A president of that particular tribe please don,t created continue instability in south sudan.

Gangura October 10, 2015 at 3:13 am

Correctly said but when he acts on advice of a tribal council like the JCE it proves he is for the tribe not the nation. How comes elders from other tribes have not come in support of this mess he created in order to sabbotage the peace agreement

AMEN October 9, 2015 at 7:42 am

preaching the wrong gospel is not acceptable JIENG COUNCIL OF ELDER ( JCE) is not there to interfer with south sudan Government Affair, they are dealing with JIENG affair

AMEN October 9, 2015 at 7:55 am

you are the ONE who gave this seat to Dinka during ELECTION in 2010 not Dinka took it by force, if south sudanese citizen elected a leader of their choice during Election in 2010 DINKA would have not to fight about leadership. but all citizen Elected sALVA KIIR as their president. Now you are saying Dinka DINKA you better to wait the election in 2014 but FAKE Dr Riek donot manage to wait the election now salva will rule for good

GatNor October 9, 2015 at 12:51 pm

It’s clear why the rush for the 21 new states.

1) consolidation of mineral wealth exclusively for the benefit of Jaang.

2) The architects by strategic design have ventured in an attempt to re-enforcing the foundation of Jaang’s social, political & cultural survival.

3) Demographic expansion and total domination of smaller tribes going into the next centuries.

The JCE’s plan though is not implimentable unless there are efforts made by the same JCE to reconcile tribal differences.

I personally think the other tribal councils in South Sudan as a coalition against must confront the JCE.

othow Dak October 9, 2015 at 4:32 pm


To tell you the bare truth, the so called president Selfless kiir is no longer a leader of the whole South Sudan as we thought he would be, eventually, he is going to transfer his leadership to gogrial Bahr Elghazal where he belongs because he believes in dinka ruling themselves. Furthermore, we as whole( all the other 63 tribes of South Sudan will never be fooled again by any ignorant dinka never. So be it if you are pro JCE or JEC OR JCE.
What I want to tell you is that : Don’t fool yourselves and dream of impossible 28 states which has been rejected by every one the wise dinkas inclusive .

Again, here are the names of the Bloodthirsty JCE (Jieng Council of Elders), the evil masterminders of “Dinkernization” in South Sudan.

Justice Ambrose Riny Thiik
Joshua Dau Diu
Charles Majak Aleer
Maker Thiong Maal
Daniel Dhieu Matuet
Thon Mum Kejok
Aldo Ajou Deng
Pamena Awerial Aluong

Mr.Kiir and this group must one day pay for the countless deaths of our people in South Sudan. We will hunt them down and bring them to law, just like the NAZI murderers in Europe after World War II.
