August 14, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— The international community, the IGAD mediators, the AU, the UN, the EU and the international media and the TRIOKA (the USA, the UK and Norway) should reckon that General Paul Malong Awan and Taban Deng Gai (alas Mohamed Hassan El-Hajj) on Friday, 8 July 2016 had conspired to kill the peace brokered by the IGAD mediators. They had the audacity to assassinate the president and the First Vice President, respectively. Had the abortive attempted coup d’état succeeded as planned, Paul Malong Awan would have assumed the presidency thereby appointing Taban Deng Gai (alas Mohamed Hassan ElHag to become the First Vice President. Surely, they would have put or labeled all the blames of the incident on Dr. Riek Machar’s bodyguard who did the right thing by not firing and storming the JI were both the President and the FVP were lured to a meeting. Interestingly, Taban was not present at all, in J1 Building and would have denied the incident by saying the he was not at J1 building at the time of the incident and hence did not know anything about it, smarts enough isn’t it?

Before I could proceed on with the analysis of foiled aggravating situation, I would be obliged to urge and appeal to the Community and the Nuer nation that it should not recognize the so-called Taban Deng Gai’s appointment to be replacement of Dr. Riek Machar and it’s unusual to have this name “Taban” amongst the Nuer folks. All the Nuers biracial persons do not have names Taban. They could be called authentically Gatluak, Gatwiec, Mohamed, Osman, Ibrahim, Ismail, Abdullah, Obeid and Hussein …etc or anything they that they would like to be named, but never “Taban.” The name “Taban” itself is too alien to the Nuer culture. This indicates that “Taban” has been a conspicuous ‘Harem’ Mulakiyya child rather than being an authentic ‘Helal’ Mulikiyya child because the Nuer traditional brands of names for children and girls reflected strength, the bull, wars and both good and sad events. The Nuer have Mohamed, Hassan, Al-Hajj, David, Daniel, Moses and other Christians and Arab names, but they have often followed by atypical authentic Nuer names like Gatluak, Gatwiec, Gatkuoth, Lam, Jok, Nyundeng, Deng, Dieu and Chuol, Chol, Deang and many others to say the least. Secondly, who is Deng Gai in Bentiu? We would like to know. Based on our investigation, the man called Deng Gai is a well known towering figure man or fellow in the Bull Nuer country. So what are the scoops and the relationship between “Taban” and “Deng Gai?” Specifically, the name Taban is common amongst the Equatorians and the Feritet of Bahr-el-Ghazal.

Nevertheless, we do know “Mohamed Hassan El-Hajj” and every Nuer knows the roots of his family and had been acculturated and assimilated to the culture and became a respectful gentleman and a successful businessman within the Nuer community who had citizens rights, duties and obligations to become anything within the community and to helped it to progress and to move forward. Why should the son of this biracial child decide to destroy his community that his father has so well served and lived honorably as full and first class citizen of the Nuer nation? Hassan ElHag would not be the first northerner to be adopted, acculturated and assimilated by the Nuer nation. There so many Arabized Muslim Northern Sudanese who have become Nuers and their biracial children have succeeded and made the greatest contribution to the Nuer Community in all fields of human endeavors.

Taban Deng Gai has been an a Lucifer or ‘Ibis” (Satan) and like-Judius Escargot who sold his master’s Jesus Christ, the King of the Jews, with only thirty (30) pieces of Silver to the Jewish Chief Priest or the Rabbi and accused him of trying to become the Emperor of Rome. When Jesus was taken before Pontius Pilate for trail as charged, the man called Jesus of Nazareth was found innocent and not guilty as charged and was acquitted. Therefore, Pontius Pilate requested to have a chisel of water to wash off his hands and turned over Jesus, the King of the Jews, to the Rabbi to do whatsoever that he wishes to do with the accused man called Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. For the legally trained and the aspiring law students, Jesus Christ vs. Pontius Pilate was the first criminal case that fascinated the planet-Earth. We cite the case of Jesus vs. Pontius Pilate because it has a great parallelism with Taban Deng Gai vs. Dr. Riek Machar. We have chronologically followed Taban’s works from Itang Refugees Camp (1983-1991) where he murdered, massacred, lynched and killed or infanticide so many Nuers and abused their basic fundamental human rights like the masters’ of the plantations in the antebellum Southern United States in which the Negroes [African-Americans] where grossly and systematically abused by their masters’ in the plantations as they so pleased without regards to human rights, peace and justice.

Furthermore, it could be a reminder to us all to the current continuous systematic police brutalities against African-Americans and Latinos men lives on the highways and the streets of the US cities and the countryside alike. We have also chronologies of his works within the defunct Southern Sudan Independence Movement/Army (SSIM/A) (1991-2000), the Khartoum Peace Agreement that he later on helped to destroy with Dr. Riek Gai Kok that has declared himself as a Jieng [Dinka] even though has been elevated by the Nuers to highest positions and accomplices not only in South Sudan, but also in the Sudan-the mother country- prior to the split and his least remembered legacy or tenure as the Governor of Unity State; how he monopolized power; wealth and control of the masses that he [Taban] grossly and systematically abused power because he has got a pretty little brain metamorphosed and had no idea that power corrupts and more power corrupts more.

Through rampant corruption, he embezzled more than $9 billion of the petrodollar accounted for oil revenues to the state, how he disrupted harmonious relations amongst the different groups and communities within the state and how he committed adulteries and murdered so many people, including the youngest and fragile Major-General Gatluak Gai (SAF) that he lured to peace process and murdered that his strong spirit is haunting Taban Deng Gai wherever he goes in Juba and to saint elsewhere not only in South Sudan, but throughout the planet-Earth. Taban Deng Gai even went as far as giving away the state money as bribes to President Salva Kiir although he was an election official by the people of Unity State and had no jurisdiction with Juba at all, built for Salva Kiir a pretty spacious mansion in Warrap State to buy position and influence that he did not deserve because he knew well dawn well that as an elected official he could not be removed from the position of the Governorship by Salva Kiir by no means. we could recall also that he [Taban Deng Gai] and Major-General Gatduel Nyakuac threatened to kill the former FVP Dr. Machar in 2010 visit to Unity State during the period of Gubernatorial election campaigns, that he gave the former FVP 24-72 hours to exit the state because his security could not be guaranteed and could not be responsible for his own personal safety and security. This was funny and stupid, wasn’t it? From the legal and constitutional viewpoint in all civilized and democratic societies threats to the VP by any Governor could not happen anywhere as that happened to the FVP Dr. Riek Machar.

Well, the FVP, as the chief executive officer responsible for the functions of the entire government departments, the Governor should have been reprimanded by the FVP; the State Legislature could have undertaken legal procedures against the Governor to give him a vote of no confidence, misdemeanor, premeditated plan to murder or to assassinate the FVP and his wife, First degree complicity to kill a head of state and government, impeachment procedures and could have been charged for failing to have provided protection to the Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan VP Dr. Machar and his entourage in Unity State. This was a pretty callous act and the VP should have undertaken immediate and constitutional measures to suspend the Governor’s from his duties and responsibilities and to charge him with treason against the state and conspiracy and complicity to kill the Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan in Unity State. Without the shadow of a doubt, that Taban Deng Gai behavior was uncouth and had sold his master’s and leader Dr. Riek Machar’s with only a few millions of dollars to Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan to be killed like a dog until he was pronounced or declared dead and to cut off his head wraps in a clothe to be brought before Salva Kiir as a big achievement. Would that stop the social revolution or social renaissance or the armed struggle against Salva Kiir’s regime in Juba? We would say affirmatively, no not so. The revolution would continue to go on until it cuts off Salva Kiir’s head and wraps it in the same clothe to show it to the masses in the same mannerism that they wanted Dr. Riek Machar’s to die.

Certainly, Dr. Machar would survive this ordeal because his brave and courageous people would stand up be behind him solidly united and rally behind him to give him the necessary security protection. The case of the late charismatic Colonel Samuel Gai Tut murdered in Thiajack, Gauguang, Nuer-Ethiopia, by the late John Garang and the late General Kiribino Kuanyin Bol in 1984 would never again be repeated. The death of the late Colonel Samuel Gai and other great Nuer commanders and politician murdered by the late John Garang, Kuol Manyang Juuk and Dr. Majak D’Aggot, Pagan Amoum, General Bior [Assod] Ajang, and many others murdered by the above-mentioned individuals; have not been forgotten, but they would be avenged no matter how long and no matter the costs may be, they would be avenged one way or the other.

The Lord God and his will move Dr. Machar through the valley of the shadow of death and they would neither fear, nor hears, nor sees evil for thou art their God and their creator will be with them and will give the protection [read Psalm 23] through their ordeal and to give them the powers to defeat their enemies. Most importantly, the gallant and the fighting Nuers now conjoined forces with almost all Equatorians and Western Bahr-el-Ghazal political forces and rebel forces will provide the necessary military and security protection no matter how much the cost may be, they would succeed in giving physically that protection and security. We do know that the Lord is their [his] shepherd and he will not want them to die…, but to lead them in the path of righteousness for his name sake…. Yea though he [Dr. Machar] and his will walk through the valley of the shadow of death, he [Dr. Machar] and his people will hear no evil for the Lord God will protect him [them] because they are doing the right thing for all the oppressed people and the failed state of South Sudan from the dictatorship, domination, oppression and exploitation.

Believe me or not, Dr. Machar’s will triumph against all his enemies from Taban Deng the big Lucifer to Salva Kiir the ‘minister of death’ or the ‘president of death’ that would-be the biggest loser of everything at the end of the day. We shall not relent to wage the armed struggle until Salva Kiir’s illegitimate regime will be defeated sooner rather than later. We urge and appeal to the suffering South Sudanese to unite their ranks and files against Salva Kiir’s dictatorship and to topple it like the Arab Spring or the Arab Streets toppled the oldest dictatorship in the North African nation-states of Tunisia, Libya and Egypt alike. This is now the time for the South Sudan Spring or South Sudan Streets or never. The lord God is great and the Lord God is great for he is not blind and deaf God. Like we say in Nuer in praising God, “Kuoth a thin ka Kuoth a thin.” The entire Nuer nation and its resilient people enemies will be doomed and gloomed. Amen! This is the bottom line.

On Friday, 8 July 2016, before the 5th Anniversary of Independence celebrations, it was preplanned conjointly by both Taban and Paul Malong Awan to lure both Dr. Machar and Salva Kiir to J1 to be murdered such that the polygamous {more than 101 wives] General Paul Malong Awan could rise to become the President and to have appointed Taban Deng Gai to become the First Vice President and the peace agreement brokered by the IGAD mediators in 2015 would been demised. Both Paul Malong Awan and Taban Deng Gai had planned a coup d’état attempt to kill or to assassinate the two men, viz., the President and the FVP, respectively. If they had succeeded on their dubious conspiratorial plan, they would have claimed that President Salva Kiir and FVP Dr. Riek Machar were killed on crossfire. Most importantly, they would have put the entire plan and blames of the events on Friday, 8 July 2016 on the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar.

Therefore, the truth must be told to the world community and to the people of South Sudan to know this well-calculated plan to murder the President and the Vice President, respectively. Instead of Salva Kiir desperately wanted to kill Dr. Riek Machar, he could have been killed by his own Chief of the General Staff and one of Lucifer’s massagers from Dr. Machar’s camp and to declare the peace process brokered by the IGAD mediators in AD 2015 as capote. Most importantly, Salva Kiir should be grateful and thankful to Dr. Riek Machar’s bodyguards who have had vision, skills, smartest and well-disciplined soldiers and officers by doing the right thing by providing physical protection and security to both Salva and Machar in J1 because they could have been killed by the polygamous General Paul Malong Awan to have illegally and unconstitutionally assumed power and the torch of the leadership on or before the 5th Anniversary of Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, 9 July 2016. It was a blessing and a smart move to have cancelled the 5th Anniversary celebrations because the two guys were not out of the woods yet. They would have perused or trailed by both Paul Malong Awan and Taban Deng Gai to waste them to become cadavers or dead corpses on that glorious big day.

Succinctly, Salva Kiir should know constantly that he’s dinning and winning with two deadly devils and two poisonous African King’s Copra or the African Black Mamba or the Rattle Snakes that could strike him without any prior notice. Taban Deng Gai has been known worldwide as a person of avaricious appetite for money or what Karl Marx called as “Dialectic Materialists” and envisages prime interests in whatsoever he does and whenever feels his blind political ambitions and personal interests he perceives to be diminishing or dwindling in whatsoever ventures or undertakings, he quits or creates confusion that could cause more bloodshed. For instance, the arming of his own Jikang in Bentiu to fight against other Nuers in the area has been foiled. They have been issued the arms, ammunitions, uniforms and equipment but at the end they declined to become follower of a Lucifer called Taban Deng Gai (alas Mohamed Hassan ElHag], unfortunately. We should congratulated the commanders who id this act because they got it loud and clear the recent statement by Major-General Dau Aturjok that he red-defected from the SPLA-I-O to the SPLA because he did not want to fight a Dinka against a Dinka.” Why Nuers should fight against other Nuers? Only fools could do that to their own folks. US Army General George Patton writes that “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his county.” We urge all Nuer commanders and men in the SPLA not to fight for a criminal and a bloodsucker like Salva Kiir because if Dinka could fight against a Dinka, why should they fight against their fellow Nuers in opposition?

This is the character of a real Lucifer in Taban Deng Gai’s body and soul. He could not be trusted. Perhaps, the worst mistake that Dr. Riek Machar’s committed was his premature dismissal of his best commanding Officer 1Lt.-General Peter Gatdet Yakah per ill-advised from Taban Deng Gai. Based on my investigation and closed work with General Peter, I have discovered that he does not have any grudge against Dr. Riek Machar that he respected so much as his leader and had no any political ambition to become president or to replace Dr. Riek Machar. He’s only an ordinary soldier who knows only at best the art of war, command and control of troops and winning the war. Nevertheless, the only different between General Peter Gatdet Yakah and Dr. Riek Machar was the signing of the Arusha plus Peace Agreement in Arusha, Tanzania, to reunify the SPLA leadership and to continue ruling the state as if there was no genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed, including other heinous crimes committed have been against humanity in South Sudan. General Peter Gatdet prime objective has been to overthrow Salva Kiir or to step down and to be charged and indicted for complicity on the crime of genocide… defined by the UNPPCP as the gravest and the greatest crimes against humanity by international tribunal and most preferably and an African Hybrid Court. We shall not relent until Salva Kiir and his accomplices and all criminals have been caught and brought to justice. They should not be let go for free; they should have to pay the price of their own actions against the unarmed and helpless Nuer ethnicity targeted for deliberate and willful extermination as a “final solution” in whole or in part.

This scheme has been no any different from the Holocaust against Euro-Jews by Nazi Germany that many Jews and the Israelis in particular, have forgotten reckoning their ugly Apartheid and inhumane treatment against the Palestinian Arabs retrospect to the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War occupation and destructions of Arabs homes and arbitrary indefinite detentions of Palestinian Arabs professionals, women, girls and children, journalists before the UNSC and the superpowers. Specifically, the Generals have no differences with Dr. Machar except on the signing of Arusha plus Peace Agreement to reunify the SPLM/A and his failure not to form a new name for the Movement because he has been put under pressure points by Taban not to leave the SPLM/A.

Nevertheless, all the SPLA commanders and the Twic Dinka Special Militias under the direct command of Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan who have been implicated in the complicity of the crime of genocide war crimes and crimes against humanity, should be indicted and charged with such crimes that they have committed against humanity. We would recommend an African Hybrid Court [AHC] instead of the International Criminal Court (ICC) created by the United Nations Security Council or by any other world organization or international instruments. From the legal purview of international law, Vienna Treaties and Protocols, the UNSC has created an illegal court under the UN Charter that recognizes only the International Court of Justice [ICJ]. What the UNSC has failed to look at was that creation of the court required greater care, because illegal conduct of the UN itself can endanger all society and there is no ready means or instruments for restraining the United Nations from actions not authorized by its Charter. In my capacity as a political scientist, academic, diplomat and statesman and an expert in international relations and international law, international organizations, international affairs, international political economy and the contemporary modern world history and governments, the Charter of the UN reveals that ‘it grants no powers to the Security Council, or no phrases or no clauses, or elsewhere to create a criminal court.’ Surely, the Charter itself includes the Statute of the International Court of Justice [ICJ]. The UNSC was deliberately and willfully denied any criminal jurisdiction. Let’s hypothetically assume that if the UN Security Council can usurp power to create a criminal court, what limitation is there on its power to do whatever it chooses? Legally, the trials of President Slobodan Milosevic, Charles Taylor of Liberia, and other African heads of state and government, nationalists and statesmen charged by the ICC for trials, were all immoral sins, ‘it violated the first purpose of the United Nations, and principle hope for the humankind, or species, ‘to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war.’ Most importantly, it also violated the first principle of the Charter, the ‘sovereign equality’ of all nation-states.

Yugoslavia was created at the end of the First World War (1914-1919) to bring peace to the Balkans through a federation of small constantly warring ‘southern Slav’ states. After its devastation in the Second World War (1939-1945), the concept of a federation of six (6) predominantly Slavic states became a working reality. Yugoslavia situated between Western Europe and the Soviet Union [Russian Federation], it maintained it sovereign independence from both sides of the deadly cold war or the East-West ideological confrontation. It helped create the Non-Aligned Movement [NAM] to resist the pressure and threats of violence and peaceful co-existence from both Eastern and Western blocs.

After the collapse of the former Soviet Union and its blocs, the US, Germany and other powerful states or actors acted to break up Yugoslavia in the aftermath of the death Josef Broz Tito, to balkanize the Balkans, to ignore its sovereign equality, to dominate and to exploit the small pieces and demonize its former federal status or leadership by selective, discriminatory, illegal and often false charges by selective, discriminatory, illegal and often false charges of international crimes. The US that bombed Belgrade in 1945, again sent aircrafts, which intensively bombed from Novi Sad to Nis to Belgrade in 1999. The US was joined by Germany and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] to bomb all of Kosovo and Yugoslavia was no more. Conclusively, the demise or the national disintegration in Yugoslavia was a deliberate and willful and systematic plan to demonize the existence of Yugoslavia in between the Russian Federation and Western Europe. The disintegration of Yugoslavia was similar to the national disintegration of the African nation of Sudan in 2011 left it with severe socioeconomic and sociopolitical chaos up this day.


What we would have been a coup d’état attempt to the real readers, the international community, South Sudanese raison d’être for Taban Deng Gai’s defection from Dr. Riek Machar Camp or outfit. Specifically, it was duly to the fact that he was not appointed as the Petroleum minister by Dr. Riek Machar and has had blind ambition to become the Nuer leader when nobody within community would ever want him to be doing so. As we have discovered through social sciences research variables, because he has been too greedy with money, he had signed dubious agreement with so many external entities to mortgage the Crude Oil that is a community’s property for his own personal interests. This blind political ambition could only be compared to Dr. Lam Akol Awajein’s ambition and betrayal of the Nasir faction in 1991 when Dr. Riek Machar was appointed as the chairman of this young Movement instead of Dr. Lam Akol that eventually led him to split from the SPLM/A Nasir faction and created the SPLM/A-United (SPLM/A-U), his constant rejection and selfish strategic reasoning and reasonableness to being working with others in a team work. In fact, if we were to compare the character of Taban Deng Gai and Dr. Long Akol, Dr. Riek Gai Kok and many others, they have been anti-Dr. Riek Machar all along because they disrespected the guy for neither apparent good reasons nor quality leadership. Although Dr. Machar’s made some booboos or mistakes because his indecisiveness, we could say a hundred times that Dr. Machar has been better compared to none of the above-mentioned selfish, devilish and necessary characters in the art of leadership to lead anyone in South Sudan. I have worked with them and psychoanalyzed the art of their leadership styles pretty well. For instance, Dr. Lam is a loner and often wanted to work alone and Dr. Riek Gai Kok is the biggest liar that has been ever born and if all mothers were too born children like Dr. Riek Gai Kok because of position’s holding has declared himself as “de-Nuerized” and declared himself a Dinka because of his roots from Abwong to Akobo Muor Nuers. The above-mentioned mosquetters do not have any art of leadership except for selfish ambitions and giving bunch of lies to the people that they lead or have led. They have played the cat and the mouse game in the Movements in South Sudan and against Dr. Machar in particular. Noting that we have known for decades elaborative, exhaustive background and character of the man called Taban Deng Gai,

We would like to sincerely urge and appeal to the Nuer Community in South Sudan, the neighboring nation-states, and in the Diaspora to unite against Taban and his white colliers protégés that have been predestined as “sales out”, traitors and scum’s that wish to disrupt and to destroy the Nuer Community, its pride of greatness, braveness, courageousness and resiliency of its people in South Sudan. We could be more than happy that the IGAD mediators denied them any sort of legitimacy and they should feel now that they all doomed and gloomed. By virtue of the 2015 peace Agreement brokered by the IGAD mediators, Dr. Riek Machar remains as the legitimate leader. They have no followers, what would they do now?   We should together as a Community and a nation gifted with so many natural resources by God our creator; we have been targeted as an endangered species because of our potential wealth and strength. We, as a collective community, we should be bound to undertake the following actions against Taban Deng Gai and his foolish protégés or the gang of six, viz., Loll Gatkuoth, Michael Mario Dhuor, Gabriel Yoak Dok, Major-General Thomas Duoth Guet, TutKaw Gatluak, including other thugs, and hooligans like the callous man called Loll Gatkuoth; John Luke; Mario Dhuor; Gabriel Yoal Dok; Tut Gatluak (Tutkaw); Timothy Tot Chuol, Kok Ruai, Major-General Thomas Duoth Guet and Major-General Gathoth Gatkuoth, including and many others who have been well-known to be anti-Dr. Riek Machar leadership for what Karl Marxist’s called as the “Dialectic materialists” for personal gains. We urge and appeal to the entire Nuer Community and the Nuer nation and its resilient people to do the followings as follows that

  • The entire Nuer Community should disassociate itself from Taban and his gang of six and other white collier protégés. They are all traitors of the Nuer community and the Nuer nation and its resilient people.
  • To denounce his appointment to replace FVP Dr. Machar as unprecedented, illegal, illegitimate and has been set so by Salva Kiir to destroy the peace brokered by the IGAD mediators in AD 2015.
  • The Nuer Community could not agree more with the IGAD total rejection renunciation on the illegal appointment of Taban Deng Gai to the Office of the FVP as a breach of the peace agreement brokered by the IGAD mediators and signed by both Dr. Riek Machar on 15 August 2015 in the Ethiopian Capital of Addis-Ababa and on 27 August 2015 by Salva Kiir in the South Sudanese Capital of Juba.
  • Taban is no more an acting VP, but a deliberate and willful hired Salva Kiir’s Special Militia against the Nuer Community. He has now opened a camp in Kuergeng (NiemNiemni) to fight the Nuer against the Nuer for his devilish schemes to maintain power illegally in Juba.
  • We also urge and appeal to the Nuer Community not to fight itself because of Taban Deng Gai’s Lucifer, Satanic, trash, traitor selfish causes envisaging to destroy our community and its democratic way of life and culture. We all should be vigilante towards Taban Deng Gai’s new negative schemes, activities and followers towards the Nuer Community.
  • We all shall have full responsibility to become aware for the protectors of our community and its people. Therefore, we should be merciless towards any the negative actors against the Nuer Community and its people and to undertake collective action, responsibility and vision and organization to exercise leadership responsibly.
  • We urge and appeal to all war mongers and the Nuers who have conjoined Taban Deng Gai’s van wagon or camp for the sake of money and personal interests to destroy the Nuer Community once more; that they should refrain from such activity because the wrath of God [Nyundeng, Dieu, NyaKulang] would be upon them, with their children and children’s children forever. This could be a lasting curse [biet in Nuer] to anyone that follows Taban Deng Gai [Alas Mohamed Hassan ElHag].
  • Whereas, we should unite our ranks and files as Nuer ethnicity this time around to wage war to overthrow Salva Kiir’s regime in Juba. This means that we should all rally behind Dr. Riek Machar to protect him from the invading Lucifer’s, opportunists, vultures and hyenas in the fields streaming down at a high velocity speed or “Mac One” or the speed of sound or Professor Albert Einstein’s thermodynamic theory that E= MC2. We do know their true colors, thus, we need to mentions names for we and they who there are, let read between the lines.
  • To the Nuer Community in these best and the worst of times, we should all of us as a people to be united like a bundle of sticks tied together that nobody can break them and to be rally solidly united around our beloved leader Dr. Machar until the end because we are micro-macroscopically under seize and a great threat and we have been gravely targeted for extermination as a “final solution” in whole or in part. We should break this chain and to turn its around against our archenemies.
  • We, [Nuers] as a people and a nation, in despite of being targeted for extinction by our archenemies, we have the moral responsibility to undertake whatsoever actions to fight and to sacrifice a million young and able Nuer youths to have the right to bear arms against Salva Kiir’s regime to avert physical extermination as a “final solution” in whole or in part. We should make the necessary sacrifices for the Nuer nation to survive and to rule democratically in South Sudan. We should be as brave as the Poles in Poland and any other oppressed and dominated and exploited people worldwide. This is the bottom line.
  • We [Nuer] should all have learned from the mid-December 2013 otherwise known hereintofore or thereunto as the mid-December 2013 Juba Genocide… defined by the UN Prevention and Punishment on the Crime of Genocide [UNPPCG] as the gravest and the greatest crimes against humanity that has been already committed against the Nuer ethnicity in the mid-December 2013 in what has been registered hereintofore in the legal lexicon and jargon as Juba Genocide above and beyond.
  • Most importantly, we should also learn something of interests and worthwhile to us all in the recent statements uttered by Major-General Dau Aturjok who proclaimed to be with us and recently re-defected to the SPLA and immediately reinstated without charges that he did re-defected because he could not fight a Dinka against a Dinka.”
  • Ladies and Gentlemen, we, [the Nuers] who have been target for extinction by the Dinka power elites, we should all have learned and captured something sifgnicant from the aforementioned statements alluded by the re-defected from the SPLA-I-O to SPLA Juba Major-General Dau Auurjok that he re-defected to the SPLA because he cannot fight a Dinka against a Dinka” should make us [Nuer ethnicity] to “unite in Solidarity” and to rally behind our beloved Dr. Riek Machar’s” no matter what the circumstances for better or worse in order to become fully aware of the statements uttered by any Dinka or any other ethnicity that may pretends to be with us for three (3) things, namely, money, power and control and the destruction of whatsoever survival plans we do for our own community and its people for their own survival.
  • In my capacity as a military trained and a veteran of the US Army, I have had many reservations then and now on any Dinka persons compared to General Dau Aturjok and Dr. Dhau Mathok are all traitors of the third kind and the most mischievous of all the so-called bogus Dr. Costello Garang Ring and many others whacking their tails before Dr. Riek Machar’s to proclaim that they were against Salva Kiir because those were all “big baloneys” and “biggest lies” of the 21st century.
  • We would like to probe then and now in typical American English that everything that is being said is easy then done and have been too baloneys and big lies of the third kind and that they could go to hell with them.
  • We should remain vigilante not only with people like Aturjok Dr. Dhou Mathok and bogus doctor Costello Garang Ring, but opportunists, vulture and hyenas like Dr. Lam Akol and Costello Garang who have leadership seekers through the Nuer leadership by bribing some well-known individuals with money like unstable generals who worshiped money like God and who have forgotten the genocide committed against the Nuer ethnicity in the mid-December 2013 Juba Genocide above and beyond.
  • Any Nuer leaders who accept money at this time of soul searching and what to do on genocide that happened to our people in the mid-December 2013 would be a big fool ever lived on the planet-Earth.
  • Like I said to Dr. Lam Akol and the like a few years ago and I shall be obliged to reiterate it again now that if he had any dreams to become leaders, they should begin within their communities, but never again through the Nuer Community.
  • The Nuer Community has learned bittersweet lessons of history from the late Dr. John Garang de Mabior that the Nuer elevated from the abject poverty to become famous and a multimillionaire revolutionary leader compared to Yasser Arman of the PLO in Palestine and Johannes Samvibi of UNITA in Angola.
  • If there are any ones who have got such dreams of the leadership acquisitioned within the Nuer Community, the think twice because they would be wasting they would be just day dreaming and surely wasting their times. What the Nuer did through its advance traditional ideals to select the late John Garang over their beloved and charismatic leader Colonel Samuel Gai over the late John Garang would not repeat itself never again in the Nuer community. History says that “charity begins at home.” The Nuer people have not forgotten the 1983 history that has cost them so much so soon. As professor George Lukas writes that “Those who forget history are bound to repeat it.” The Nuer nation and its people have not forgotten history and we shall never again to repeat it. The Reverence John Hagee writes that “Those who fail to remember the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them in the future. History reveals humanity’s triumphs and failures, giving us a compass for the future.”The Nuer shall never again fail to remember the mistakes of the past because we would be doomed to repeat them…”
  • Let us assume hypothetically that if Dr. Lam and many others that left Juba with the intent of seeking only positions vs. waging the war to overthrow Salva Kiir regime by any means necessary, they should think again because they would be joining the wrong outfit that has been already organized, structured and united to overthrow Salva and the Dinka Elder Council (EDC) in Juba to be replaced by a “collective democratic leadership system” in a heterogeneous and pluralistic democratic and federal system of government based on the existing ten (10) states and never ever on the imaginary existing twenty-eight (28) states proposed by the ethnocentric [tribalist] Salva Kiir in Juba. If there are any ones that have been vying for the leadership through the Nuer Community, let him or her returns to his/her community to unite it and to become its leader to compete for the overall collective democratic leadership of all the communities based on one man, one woman, one vote, and one value or the Australian formula adopted as the Universal Adult Suffrage.
  • For instance, grasshoppers like Dr. Lam Akol could just picked up his dirty bag like a mad man dirty bag to proclaim himself for the leadership of the Nuer Community. He would not get it because there are so many well-educated and the most Enlightened Nuer leaders to assume the torch of the community’s leadership if they assume that Dr. Machar or Professor/Ambassador David de Chand might have failed in leading the Nuer to the promise land. We shall resign and to give the gable to the young and the best and brightest or la crème de la crème rising young stars within the Nuer Community.
  • Based on the Nuers’ experienced with the late John Garang de Mabior in 1983, it would be imperatively impractical, if not impossible, for the Nuer Community leadership to be ever given to a non-Nuer or an external candidate with lesser knowledge of the customs, civilization, modernization and the way of life and the Nuer culture. No matter how much differences and grievances against Dr. Machar, it is not the time to talk about such ‘differences and grievances’ at this time because the Nuer Community should bury alive such ‘differences no matter how big or how small they may be, the hatches and the grievances until we will defeat Salva Kiir‘s regime in Juba and no matter how long and how much the costs may be, we will defeat it at the end of the day. This is the bottom line.
  • For the aliens and the opportunists, vultures and hyenas that have preconceived ideas of seeking the Nuer Community’s leadership, we say to them in unionism, it too late to doing so at this juncture. We could not agree more with General Peter Gatdet and others who shared this vision and thought with intelligentsia intellectuals within the Nuer Community. This is the bottom line.
  • It would never again re-occur in the Nuer Community or to repeat never again the mistakes of the past like the Nuer people raised the late John Garang from abject poverty to become the world’s famous, multimillionaire and internationally became famous. Dr. Lam Akol should go first to the Shilluk (Chollo) to unite them and to come with them to seek a democratic union with the Nuer community through the democratic process for envisaging and vying for the leadership. No Nuer leader shall never again repeat what the previous Nuers did in 1983 by elevating John Garang from abject poverty to become famous worldwide and later on turned against the Nuer to become public enemy number one.
  • We shall never again repeat this historical blunder that has already created a big impact on the Nuer Community. We have many so well-educated Young Nuer Urban Professionals (YNUPs) to take over the torch of the leadership within the Nuer Community, but never again by external candidates. This is the bottom line.
  • The question that we would be obliged to probe to the Nuer Community as a whole why should a Nuer want to fight a Nuer and for whose benefit?
  • We [Nuer ethnicity] Let’s this time around, let there be no Nuer that would want to fight a fellow Nuer, thus, we to refrain from killing each other no more for the sake of money and power. It would be better off to live in poverty than to be rich in slavery. In 1958, President Ahmed Souku Touare of Guinea-Conakry in his demands or quests for early political independence from France told General Charles de Gaulle of France that “It is better off to live in poverty than to be living rich in slavery.”
  • The Nuer Community is potentially the most prosperous community throughout South Sudan. We should know that any monies in Juba that Jieng [Dinka] bureaucrats have grown big bellies like pregnant Baboons and Guerrillas in the wild forests comes from the Nuer Crude Oil revenues that makes up to 98% of the national budget.
  • Instead of us [Nuers] being bought with our own monies, we should demand to take over the country to rule it as a federal state based on the existing original ten (10) states or for the Greater Upper Nile region to exit South Sudan to become a state of its own compared to the British exit [Brexit] from the European Union (EU) awaiting the triggering of Article 50 of the 1973 Lisbon Agreement in which the UK was a prime founding member state of the European Union (EU) to shape a new life of its own. Thanks God, we have no articles to be triggered to negotiate the Greater Upper Nile exit from South Sudan. All the natural resources therein belongs to the community as loudly and clearly states in South Sudan interim Constitution and bylaws and regulations. There would be no resources (wealth) sharing to be negotiated at all. It will be for sales to any states, but if they fail to pay the fees, they will be automatically shut off until they paid all the past dues. Remembers the relationship between Russia and Ukraine on the natural gas sales to Ukraine that whenever Ukraine’s fails to pay past dues, Russia automatically shuts it off from receiving gas fuel for the bitter Winters in that part of the world..
  • Realistically, we [the Nuer folks and the Shilluk [Chollo] do not need Juba, but Juba and Wau desperately do need us because we have got the natural resources (wealth) throughout South Sudan. In my capacity as a political economist and a Keynesian proponents or followers, anyone that is following Taban Deng Gai because he has been bribed, for God’s sake, takes that money and to take a hike and to keep your mouths shut, but do not venture to kill your fellow Nuer because of the Monies has been already yours rather than the Jieng [Dinka] with their big bellies like pregnant Baboons and Guerillas monkeys from the wild jungles of Africa. The time is now shorter for them to grow their big bellies like flying Hot Air Balloon across the Transatlantic or the Pacific Oceans to wherever it wishes to land safely and sound on the planet-Earth. The Jieng [Dinka] would regret it soon because they [Dinka] could not afford to rob the Nuers’ property because there would be no Nuer persons that would let them do so over their dead bodies.


First and foremost of all, we sincerely welcome the rejection of Taban Deng Gai (alas Mohamed Hassan ElHag) to become the First Vice President instead of Dr. Riek Machar. It would have been illegal and could have virtually destroyed the peace process without delays. Dr. Machar’s deserves to become the First Vice President during the Interim Period that Salva Kiir, traitor Taban Deng Gai and Yuri Museveni of Uganda do like and have vowed to assassinate to Dr. Riek Machar. Nevertheless, God and the Nuer soldiers and the White Army would give him the best security protection ever given to any threatening head of state and government anywhere on the planet-Earth, including South Sudan. We hope that Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan have learned something because a 1,000 Nuer caused great destruction in J1 with more than 1,890 dead and in Gudele more than 2,000 plus dead with Juba Hospital full of the wounded SPLA soldiers. Supposedly, that Dr. Machar had 5,000 man strong Nuer soldiers who shoot only the forehead, the eye and the chest where in Juba, what a great damage or destruction that would be to the SPLA? Without the shadow of a doubt a force of 5000 well- armed Nuer fighters could capture Juba in matters of hours if only a thousand could have caused such a great destruction and damages to the SPLA fighters. This time around, whether Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan like it or not, we will send to 150,000 to 300,000 fighting Nuers and the Equatorians to liberate Juba. There would be no foreign forces that could to prevent us moving in on to Juba to make out “Tet” inside Juba. We are determined and motivated for Salva Kiir’s regime to go now rather than later. Since Salva Kiir is an illegitimate President leading and illegitimate government and Parliament, there should be no good raison d’être for him to remain on the seat of power as an illegitimate President. Most importantly, Salva Kiir’s regime, generals including Dr. Riek Machar and Taban Deng Gai and all of them should be indicted and taken to be trial in an international tribunal like the ICC or an African Hybrid Court that would render social justice for the dead ones and the aggrieved. We will not relent until justice is done and the reparations would be paid by the GOSS and jail all those found guilty and the few cleaned ones be acquitted.


In conclusion of this analysis of the man called Taban Deng Gai character and behavior, we urge and appeal to all the Nuer people to boycott Taban Deng Gai and for the Nuer Community to unite its ranks and files to wage a revolutionary warfare against Salva Kiir’s regime in Juba. This could only be achieved through the armed struggle because politics have failed in finding a tenable reasonable alternative peaceful and political conflict resolution on the ongoing treacherous tribal warfare or as if a civil war in South Sudan.

Most importantly, it’s now about time that we [the Nuers] and all the oppressed and genocide or democide ethnicities should all unite and to rally behind Dr. Riek Machar as our leader no matter the differences and grievances may be, we should put our dirty laundry under the bedrooms until we defeat Salva Kiir and then to bringing them out into the open for thorough discussions that would demand thorough solutions. As I see it, our biggest problem is not Dr. Riek Machar, but the illegitimate gooiness Salva Kiir and Taban Deng Gai in Juba. We should know that “unity is strength,” disunity is weakness, and we should also remember that “United, we stand, divided, we fall.” Let us all think how to chew, how to swallow and how to digest these words that we have delightfully jotted down for your and reading and analysis and pleasure.
