“Unity is strength and strength is power and peace can only be achieved through strength, but not in weakness”. “United we stand, divided we fall”.
By Professor /Ambassador David de Chand,
Nov 25, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— Fellows countrymen, comrades, friends, brothers and sisters, I write you this note because I have learned that you are going to be meeting on Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska, on the quest and the dream on the Nuer Unity. It is the right step in the right direction. In short, you are doing the right thing. You can be rest assured that we are with you all the way until the end.
I am sure you all know as I do know that the Holy Bible teaches us all that there’s time for everything. There’s time to cry; there’s time to mourn, there’s time to be happy, there’s time to fight and there’s time to make peace…etc.
Your dream to unite as a people and a community, it all starts with God. Everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, everything got started in him and finds it purpose in hum.

You should all realize that “You [the Nuer people] are Not an Accident.” God Almighty is your Creator. You are in his care even before you were born [Isaiah: 44:2a] Even Professor Albert Einstein said he that God doesn’t play dice”.
Because of the Biblical exigencies delivered by theologians more than I can do as a non-theologian, but as has a man of faith, an academic and as an intellectual and a bona fide scholar that has read both the Holy Bible, the Holy Quran and the Torah for the quest of knowledge for the sake of knowledge, your dream to unite comes and blessed by God as your Creator because of the things that have occurred in our motherland South Sudan that we have liberated with our sweat and spilled over the precious blood of our martyrs whose victory was stolen from them and awarded to the late John Garang by the so-called African experts, the lobbyists and all that jazz that you all know what and that have had no knowledge and the intricacies of the nature of South Sudan society. We shall overcome this problem only through a consolidated United Front that you are now committed to undertake to plant its seeds.
We do sincerely salute you all in this courageous and significant dream of re-uniting our community to return its historic and traditional respects that it had prior to Dr. Riek Machar assumed its helm. How far did we go and where are we now? What is the way forward? We should all together think critically about the above-mentioned questions or queries.
We do send you this note to know that we have been also united as a people with a common cause. We do have some renegades that are trying to disrupt the process of the Nuer Unity for their own vested interests, but you can all be rest assured that they would fail in such efforts. We will have to talk them to return to the fold or else they would have to forego or to be ex-communicated from the Nuer Community because they have become like fig trees that could not bear fruits in orchards.
We have been able also to unite our generals retrospect to the incident in Pagak fueled and ignited by Lucifer’s Taban Deng Gai (alas Mohamed Hassan El-Hagg) on 15 July 2015 and we are moving as a united front to Dialogue par cum pare (equal) with them to find a tenable reasonable alternative (TRA) solution. We would like to inform you that everything that happened in Pagak were deliberately and willfully perpetrated by the Lucifer’s Taban Deng Gai (Alas Mohamed Hassan El-Hagg and his emissaries with an illogical plans and intentions to destroy the Nuer unity, its people and the nation for their own personal vested interests have been forgiven, but not forgotten. May wrath of God, the Great Nuer Prophets Nyundeng, Dieu and Nyaruac Kulang (Nyakulang) will be upon them.
We should also be prepared for a United South Sudan. We shall leave no body behind. Therefore, the Nuer unity in Diaspora and the Nuer in South Sudan, including Khartoum, Addis-Ababa, Uganda, and Cairo and throughout the world would be a great pre-requisite roadmap to the Nuer unity that could move mountains and could surely shake some individuals’ guts and gusto. We will and will achieve this dreamed Nuer unity as the only way to defeat Salva Kiir’s regime in Juba.
We will unite to fight Salva Kiir’s regime and the so-called Dinka Elder Council (DEC) a DAESh terrorist organization similar to Baku Harem in Northern Nigeria and Al-Shabab in Somalia, but not the Dinka Community. We have no problems with the Dinka Community, but the whole of South Sudan does have a big problem with Salva Kiir and his cronies’ henchmen in Juba and their failure to resolve this problem, South Sudan, could become disunited and disintegrated state forever.
There are many Dinka against Salva Kiir’s regime, but they are hiding in closets like homosexuals or gays, lesbians and cannibals within the Dinka society. We would urge and appeal to the Dinka Community (DC) to extricate, to distant or to disassociate itself from the bad deeds committed by Salva Kiir’s regime and they should have nothing to fear except fear itself to join the social revolution or social renaissance against Salva Kiir’s dictatorial and illegitimate regime in Juba. We urge and appeal to the Dinka generals to overthrow Salva Kiir before it’s too late. They must decide between good and evil for the cause of the present and the future of the Dinka Community.
We believe beyond a reasonable doubt, that that there cannot be South Sudan without the Dinka nor the Nuer participation nor Equatorians, Ferittet, Shilluk [Chollo] democratic participation in South Sudan’s national affairs. The enemies of the people are the ones wearing the SPLA military insignia and totting AK-47 to kill innocent people, women, children and the elderly for no good and apparent reasons. The war would not end until Bany Adut, Malwal Anyier, Mathiang Anyour and Ageng Weng have been completely and totally wiped out of the picture throughout South Sudan. The war will go on to Warrap and Aweil whether Salva Kiir and his notorious Chief of Staff Paul Malong Awan like it or not, it will surely happen and no matter long it takes, it will happen. I am longing for the day that Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan will be witnessing these things alive similar to things that have done to others, which they ought not to have done.
Nevertheless, this process of reunification and reintegration would have to be done through the democratic process rather than through the dictatorial and genocidal means. We should acknowledge that South Sudan has become totally and completely a failed state although some pro-SPLM partisans still considered it as a “hijacked state”, from whom, by who and for what, remains a myth to de-mythologized, but not as a failed state that moved from being an instable state to stateless to statelessness like Somalia in the post-overthrown of General Sayaid Barre in 1992 in Mogadishu, Somalia, in the Horn of Africa [HOA].
Supposedly, that if all of South Sudanese dream or quest would be to re-build, to re-unite and to re-integrate that could be done in a would-be New federal South Sudan based on the principles of democracy on the ten (10) states. We could all have to sit down together to Dialogue par cum pare as equal partners to restructure and to reframe in a would-be new Federal Constitution that would guarantee any states or regions the rights to exit from the Union free at will like the British Exists [BREXIT] from the European Union [EU] that it was a founding member under the 1973 Lisbon Agreement that gave birth to the modern EU and that it’s awaiting to trigger Article 50 for negotiations with the EU Member states on trade, military , diplomatic relations, free movement of people and work between the UK and the EU.
This could be possible through direct, frank and meaningful negotiations, but never ever under the muzzle of the AK-47 or on any intentions by any groups’ domination, oppression and exploitation of another group. We will not hesitate resisting such a devilish intentions or state of affair exposed by such group or groups against another group by any means necessary for general correction of coercing for the general good and happiness of the majority.
The Nuer nation and its resilient people have the responsibility to unite to show a sense of democratic and selfless leadership program contrary to what we have already experienced in the past. Because “charity begins at home,” the Nuer ethnicity should unite first before it could seek unity with other nationalities that have been looking after what the Nuer will do. We should state it at the outset that there is no ethnicity that could be able to induce democratic change in South Sudan with the exception of the Nuer nation and its resilient people.
The politico-military developments in J1 Building Grounds, Jebel Kujur, Gudele, Lanya, Yei-Maridi Roads and its thick bushes for 48- Day had proven that the Nuer soldiers and commanders can undertake to do and to accomplish any missions, epics or episodes and our brave, gallant, courageous soldiers and generals under good control and command have done it in Juba and throughout Equatoria. They have broken flat Salva Kiir and Paul Malong Awan long longest horns, bombasticity and war mongering.
Surely, by God grace, they will re-do it again sooner rather than later in side Juba. All the jackasses or the “Dinks” in Juba, the last events that created hysteria and fear was only a piece of the iceberg and the test of the waters accomplished by 1,300 man strong Nuer soldiers. This time around, Salva and Paul Malong Awan should be rest assured that we will dispatch a well-armed and well-equipped to Juba a million(1,000,000) or more guerilla forces, the Nuer White Army [Riam tin boor] and its counterpart the Nuer Gojam on the west of the White Nile River. We will be determined to make Juba to become a ghost town and it could take many more years to be re-built. It would be left like Aleppo in Syria or Mosul in Iraq. No Nuer soldiers are afraid of fighting a weak link Dinka soldiers. It was Alexander the Great that said that, “He was not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep, but he was afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion”. Alexander the Great statement refers the Dinka generals as sheep-like and the Nuer generals as the lions-like. Of course, the rebel forces are in and around the outskirt of Juba town and they do know firsthand what goes on inside Juba.
As Lucifer’s Mohamed Hassan El-Hagg (alas Taban Deng];General Gathoth Gatkwouth and the ex-I-O commanders that have been misled by Taban Deng, Tut Kaw Gatluak and Dr. Riek Gai Kook; James Kok Ruai and General Thomas Douth Guet, that the most sole killer of the Nuer folks in Juba and collaborators “sales out” and traitors of the Nuer Community, could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, that they have no supporters throughout the Nuer Community and even the few people that have joined them for the sake of having birded by Taban Deng Gai, could soon or later desert them to return to the Nuer Community and they be would welcomed with opened arms, smiles, hearts and souls as hero and heroines. For the traitors above-mentioned, they should know firsthand that that they have no place in the Nuer Community because they have been already classified as outcasts, Abed (kuany) and treacherous monsters and mortal enemies of the Nuer Community. They could be unwelcomed to the Nuer Community that they have envisaged to destroy for the sake of vested interests and useless South Sudan Pounds that do worth a dime and already declared as “non-legal tender” currency internationally.
We urge and appeal the Nuer people that they should provide a new leader not under the banner of Dr. Machar and the dead IO because other nationalities are looking at us for providing them with proper appropriate leadership in South Sudan because the Dinka [the Dinks] has failed our hard won revolution, which had cost us so many lives, martyrs, the wounded and so many veteran, including the author of this letter. We can deliver this demand, but not under Dr. Riek Machar no more. Both Dr. Machar and Taban Deng and their protégés have destroyed the Nuer unity and its advanced traditional democracy for their own vested interests. We are determined to restore the past status quo ante.
SPLA-IO is dead retrospect to the signing of Arusha Plus signed by Dr. Machar and Taban to re-unite the SPLA to continuing as the ruling party in South Sudan. Because I-O has been defunct, dead, obfuscated or dysfunctional in unionism, we should change the name and should begin the process to search for a new and aggressive political leader defeat Salva Kiir and Taban Deng Gai and a new aggressive Military Chief of Staff to defeat Paul Malong Awan and his sheep-likes commanders.
Because you are US citizens like me, let us push through the US Congress, Senate and the White House under the would-be President-Elect Donald Trump our causes and concerns as Americans and veterans. I am sure, the President-Elect would listen. We should join Donald Trump’s van wagon since we have been genocide and dumped to trashes by the outgoing Barak Hussein Obama’s Administration and no matter how many people will rebuke you, just tell them in a very simple language “to go to hell” and where were they when the Nuer people was being genocide by Obama’s Administration in Juba, South Sudan?
Perhaps, another legacy that the US President Barak Obama left for America has been that he has destroyed progressive race relations in the USA. No one is saved anymore whether being Whites, Blacks, Latinos, Arab-Americans, and Sudanese-Americans from racial hatred and hate crimes that rifted the USA. It’s a shame. As an American émigré and part of the dying middle-class America, I call for reconciliation, forgiveness, but not to forget the past. We all have mutual and social responsibility to heal America for a better future of all Americans. As a father, I am pretty much concerned and worried about the uncertain future of my kids in the USA. It’s not the same US that studied and worked a few years ago. We hope that President-Elect Donald Trump would drain up the lake left behind by the US President Barak Obama worldwide
You should not be shy to put your case through the Republican and Democratic Representatives and Senators alike in Washington, DC, and you can also write to your State Representatives and Senators. I am in contact with the US Congress and the Office of President-Elect Donald Trump and his transitional Team in Washington, DC.
I will come to the US soon to tell the story of South Sudan in full details plus the two books that I have just authored and ready for publication on the political and military developments since the split of South Sudan from the Mother country- Sudan- on 9 July 3011 up to the split within the ruling party, to the Nuer ethnicity genocide that if the world cannot seek and to find a solution could make the Dinka become displaced person like Rhoyingka in Myanmar (Burma) in South Sudan. The whole of 63 ethnicities minus one the “Dinks” have been against it. Can it really survive this carnage? Surely, I am afraid indeed for the future of the Dinka ethnicity in South Sudan. It has no friends and nobody trusts them because of the things that they have done, which they ought not to have done.
We should all be vigilante of the vultures and hyenas lurking around to seek the Nuer leadership to empowered themselves at your own expense. They have their agents within your midst to collect information to tell them what the Nuer ethnicity has concluded on the issue of leadership. For instance, Par Kuol Wang had been a major supporter of Dr. Lam Akol and Taban because he was anti-Dr. Riek Marcher’s ever since I was an academic in the USA. As per Dr. Lam Akol, he has been disowned by the Shilluk (Chollo) and could not see eye-ball to eye-ball with Lt.-General Johnson Oolong. Nevertheless, Dr. Lam Akol is using useless Nuer leaders like General Gabriel Tang and Chuol Gakah to disrupt the Nuer Unity. They would surely fail in this process one way or the other. As far as we are concerned, Dr. Lam Akol, General Ayokuk Ougat and Colonel Johannes O’kuich are the most wanted persons as material witnesses to give accounts on the death of General Phillips Machar and General Nyoun Nyabil plus other thirty-five (35) Officers and enlisted men murdered in cold blood as well as eighty-five (85 Nuer) Laui (Gum Arabic) workers for Dr. Lam and Elise Pharmaceutical Company. Furthermore, Dr. Lam Akol and his accomplices would also be wanted as suspects and material witnesses in the sudden death of General Kohl Chara Nyang, Chief of Operation, SSLA and his Deputy in Krastaal, Higglich, and Southern Kordufan
In order for the Nuer unity to become complete and absolute, we must and ought to extend Dialogue par cum pare (equal) to the Nuer bureaucrats in Juba and the generals, including Taban Deng Gai to tell us what he did and for whose benefit? Yes, Taban and his in-law (Dr. Machar) have disagreed over many issues, but that they should not be extended to the entire Nuer Community and the Greater Nuer nation. We believe that such differences are local Unity State politics and had got nothing to do with the Nuer nation and its resilient people and has become a form of “collectively punishment” similar to the Apartheid days in the Republic of South Africa against the African majority and concurrently superimposed Apartheid on Palestinian Arabs by the Zionist Settlers State of Israel in the Middle East. Removable of Dr. Machar by Taban Deng was illegal and would remain illegal and could remain illegal, thus, creating problems for Taban Deng’s within the Nuer Community similar to 1916 Skype-Pico Agreement that chopped up the Middle East for 100-year plus, it was unconstitutional and was in contravention of the 2015 Addis-Ababa peace Agreement.
In my capacity as a diplomat and an academic with many years of conflict negotiations experience through the Intergovernmental Authority and Development (IGAD) and one of the authors of the IGAD/DOPs in May 1994 in Nairobi, Kenya, I have resolved and ever ready to engaged the Nuer folks and bureaucrats through Dialogue par cum pare (equal) my fellow Nuer leaders in Juba as the most tenable reasonable alternative (TRA) solution. They should realize or reckon that such a hasty negative reactions that they unanimously undertook against one of their own was pretty cruel, wrong and not correct. If they were angry with Dr. Machar’s and his failures, they should have reported the matter to the Nuer Community to decide instead of the unilateral betrayal of the entire community for the cause of one person out of millions others; that Nuer folks in Juba should know that from here on that all options for Dialogue par cum pare (equal) the Opposition has placed on the table would remain so, open door, direct and that all options are on the table.
We are wishing you all the best to go ahead with your meeting in the search for the dream of the Nuer Unity.
God bless you all and to move forward with this initiative and favorable endeavor.
