Feb 18, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The young South Sudanese Brigadier General, and the former Spokesman of SPLM/SPLA (in Opposition), Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, who defected from the armed Opposition following heated confrontations with his comrades, has been rejected in his home town of Akobo and other parts of Greater Lou-Nuer.

“There comes a time that national interest becomes a priority to that of an individual.” Gen. Koang Rambang, the commissioner of Akobo quotes Prof. George Saitoti.

According to Commissioner Koang, the Greater Akobo Leadership, on ground, dismisses the existence of any armed resistance in the three Counties of Lou Nuer beside that of SPLM/ A under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon.

“On behalf of the three Commissioners, Cde Simon Hoth Duol, Cde Wany Juet Jok and I, wish to assure the entire Lou Nuer Citizens across the globe that we remain committed to the course of our movement under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny.” Koang declares.

The commissioners declares that all the three counties of Lou-Nuer will never betray the innocent Nuer children and women, who were massacred in thousands in Juba, South Sudan.

“The Lou Nuer leadership and the entire population on ground will not, at any cost, betray the innocent Nuer Citizens that were massacred in Juba on December 15th, 2013 for simple reason of their ethnic identity. I wish to make it clear to all Lou Nuer citizens that Lou Nuer people will never be divided again for personal interests or gains.” the commissioners declare.

Brig.Lul Ruai Koang former spokeperson of Splm-IO

South Sudanese are across roads since 15 of December 2013 when president Kiir ordered the Tiger batulion for declered asenseless war to kill one ethnic group the Nuer on his lelitimate voters in a blatant violation of article 190 of the transitional constitution 2011 instead to defect yourself as independent person for simple reason.

Let me advice you if you defect yourself as independent do not betray your innocent civillians who were massacred in Juba regime to return back to government never.

Gatkuoth Lok February 18, 2015 at 7:55 am

Dear Lul Ruai Koang, it is clear that u chose not to overcome administrative differences within the movement.

In South Sudan conflict, we only have two camps. One is Kiir’s camp and the other is Dr. Machar’s.

Kiir is a dictator and Machar is a democrat. It must be clear to u gentleman that Kiir cherishes dictatorship, a govt. in which non-dinka must not have right to contest for presidency rather than being offered other non-crucial positions crowning them all as those who stand by us ( dinka)

Opposed to Dr. Machar’s program which u dear Lul Ruai irrationally misunderstood, for it is that program which every soul yearns for. Every South Sudanese of goodwill understands it, the best way for all to coexist in love, peace, development and prosperity.

This program is none than to propel democracy into existence. Afterward we also propel federalism into being, and justice embodying the rule of law, equality and rights, among others to help south Sudanese of different walks life be in a living country.

In brief, this is the program which need not be obstructed by individual as u myopic bro Lul and your likes.

We must remain committed even though Lul is made to believe that he is a puppet to be easily taken to get co-opted to Kiir regime like other militias groups which r now dying to protect kiir’s regime.

take shame my bro. Riek is an all time Dinka-Killer. Look at his records if truth had to be told. God knows the truth and that was why hit the good hearted nuers to reconsider their nationalism and patriorism, not power seeking ones like you and that dirtyminded Riek who makes his phd useless. I am not a Dinka and I do not believe are good people, peace makers and peace lovers. They forgive bad nuers many times and you never learn from that forgiveness. Good luck and you will always loose. Think twice of 91

Simon February 18, 2015 at 5:19 pm

Well said peter gadet. Any one can rule south sudan including nuer. Even dinkas don’t like kiir but seeing riek on opposition side bring back the memories of 1991 riek mass murdering war. So nuer you better find new rebel leader or else you are on loosing end. No one will support riek other than nuer themselves.riek is nuer killer through his over exaggerated lies. So watch out nuers, your son will finish you one by one.

Congratulation to Gen.Koang Rambang for clarifying this claim, this youth has been given some money by government which he wasted with out fruit, last week he was in problem with government that is his reason of defection.

Mashodyok February 18, 2015 at 10:12 am

Gen. Lul ruai koang. Your depection to genocidal govt of salva kiir or formed your new ssrm/a will not change anything, since the reasons behind your depecion are not sensitive to let somebody depect from any organisation, simply because they are personal interests.

Akol C Akol February 18, 2015 at 1:07 pm

Lou Nuers is spared due to its politicians in Juba and other sound minded like Lul Ruai. Otherwise, Lou could be destroyed like they did in Bor. You guys should know that the government is paying attention to Lou Nuer and if you keep behaving wild without realizing your demons acts, then, you will bath with blood in middle of children and women.

Char Nhial Chol February 18, 2015 at 11:49 am

Bro-bro Akobo Commissioner Hon Koang Rabang to clarify our position to Nuer in general, Lul Ruai is the only young person that has got chances in SP LA-IO and he has saved the movement for twelve months ,but unfortunately Lul has destroyed his personal career within minute today, sorry for Lul, he will cry forever.

mayom February 18, 2015 at 12:53 pm

take it easy he is rebel who has rebelled from rebel. All are rebels Riek and him.

mayom February 18, 2015 at 1:36 pm

people were killed in juba on the 15/ Dec and later to other part of country but is bringing those dear lifes back again? Nothing but peace. But is peace coming? Nobody knows because if the demands for politicians are met then war continues but if the politicians share their powers properly they declare peace and all come to Juba. Now where are the innocent life killed? Only power is got by few!!!!!. Nul Ruai demands Akobo state.. Is it bad to Akobo people… Riak can’t break that if you can see properly. Blaming Nul is not true because the peace being signed in Addis will not bring back our people nor any reward to these poor people who are mostly affect but only politicians whom we are now seeing as fighting for our right, no …….. Riak coming back to Juba in any position is not the victory of the cause so let anyone try his lack for what to bring to his community, am with Nul Ruai because seen what is coming before majority of you guys. Goodluck

Dear Lul Ruai
It is my pleasure to read your message in sudan tribute but It is okay what I mean It is okay but not great. We all of us have short temper when the things become complicated weather any kind of situation or you discourage or disappointed with any kind of reason. You are young man and you have a lot of thing ahead to do. Now what we see around us will empress but this war need some one who committed him don’t look right and left just accept the situation. We as Nuer members urge you to set aside your differences with who those who discourage you. It is not a time to leave the movement we need you by any mean. You the man who stand up from day and say this is not right for someone killed your brothers, sisters and fathers. We will not let our people down in this critical moment.

Bol Nyawaan Matiek February 18, 2015 at 10:07 pm

Those who cherish the meaningless movement of this dog call riek machar are a devil and satan agents. I hate riek for one reason, only brainwashing the whole illiterate and ignorant community of nuer. by his so-called phd. Deceiving many nuer by his wicked ideas of tribalism. there’s one time nuer will comes into their sense that reik is really using them as tools, other than as people

Diko man March 12, 2015 at 7:18 am

By the way am surprise to hear that you still addresses yourself as a commissioner of Akobo. The legitimate government of Jongeli state sacked you way back. we need to be professional when we do things. Mr. Lul Ruai Koang is one of the strong men i respect in south sudan. what will you, the hooligan nuers benefit from this useless war? where in any fight you nuers are the losers, whether you captures a place or government captures. did you know that you hooligans are fighting all the tribes in south sudan? now you calculate, assuming you killed 500 government soldiers, those 500 will never be from one tribe, what if the 500 killed from IO all will be nuer. people go to school to make difference. honestly Riek is not your God, Riek is not more better than all the nuer elites. why don’t you reason? Mr Lul Ruai knows engaging nuer as a single tribe against a government is just a mess, if even it takes more years, the Nuers will still be the losers trust me.there are many elites emanating from nuer tribe but are not on the either side of the government nor opposition, why because they know how useless and senseless the war is. Am not against you, but worried that you the so called nuer leaders are killing your own people indirectly, trust me this war will take you nuer nowhere in the country, other than destroying and reducing the population of nuer. To end this comment, i called you nuers “hooligan” not because am against you. but because the way you handle your matters portrays your hooliganism. War will take you nowhere. Imagine before the crisis you nuers were really enjoying the government, both in national or state government, what did you do in three states of Upper Nile?, most of the army generals were nuer, what professionalism did you bring in the Army?. more and more ministers were coming up from nuer, what did they do?. As i write this comment am surprised if there are people with good reason in a nuer tribe. To conclude, if i were Riek the day the war broke out in Juba, i would have made kiir carry the cross of this war he started as Riek stated. but he (Riek) lacks the understanding of today’s politics, he moved around and put himself with kiir in the same image. here we can say like kiir like machar. you support machar you are confused like and the same to Kiir’s support. one hint…… a violent man will never defeat other violent man, for both will end up in the hospital for treatment. now machar and kiir are hopeless, they need medical advice. take it or leave. you will never win, no matter what.
