Dear Mr. president, this is an open letter with a legitimate piece of advise from a senior officer. We know you don’t like reading but you must this one your excellency (Photo: Nyamilepedia version)

November 26, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Whereas I may have no right to write to a president of a country, however, I feel duty bound and satisfied to do so as we are all servants of this nation who volunteered to start the first movement in 1964. In my view, we all bear the burden of blame when we are sometimes overcome by the sudden crisis.

We are viewed by the outsiders as being ignorant to pursue the chain of the cause. Am proud of being one of the Nuer elders to offer advice to a president from another tribe with whom we share the same right. Of course being the top leader of a country and as such being the fountain of honor, you may not need to be advised, however, sharing notes always leads to prosperity. “A Problem shared is a problem solved” – Dracker. Writing to a son from Dinka tribe whose culture gives the impression of being faithfully advised gives me confidence.

Generally, my heart is still bearing the ten months of pain as I observe the first government in history of a new nation which is mandated to offer the best example of a peaceful leadership stumbling over a “rock”. Particularly, the 15th of December 2013 incidence when people of South Sudan were preparing the XMASS Day bears a permanent scare in the hearts of many. “We cannot escape history and neither can we escape a desire to understand it”.

The period 1964-1968 I spent with you under Manyang Chol Ruej Command during the first movement of hit and run is recalled. We were so young, and I was a first year student of Bentiu Intermediate School but fighting a war as if in my home land Bentiu (….) More→

 Nov 26, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — Mayom County Student Association in Universities and Higher Institutes in Sudan have conducted the successful 2nd family gathering in Sudan’ capital Khartoum on 22nd /11/2014 for the public orientation about the nature of South Sudan conflict which erupted on 15/12/2013 in Juba.

UNDER THE THEME: STRUGLE FOR OUR RIGHT TO LIVE FOR FREE CHOICE.

The meeting was very fruitful and succeeded. It was attended by SPLM/A-IO freedom fighters Generals and dignitary prominent politicians including church leaders and entire Nuer communities. As the program was preceded the association chairman Eng: Samson Mashod Yoah Manyuon called upon all South Sudanese communities in general and entire Nuer community in particular to stand behind the freedom fighters under the leadership of Dr.Riek Machar Teny who tirelessly works hard to bring peace, freedom, democracy and the rule of law.Mr Mashod advised the splm/a-io leaders from rushing a deal of power sharing with the illegitimate government of Salva Kiir without persecuting the perpetrators of last December’s massacre as long as the program continued ,BRIGADIER GEN. PETER LIM BOL assured the audiences about the conflict and how the war broke out inside the presidential guards in which he was the second command of the tiger division. He said that, the whole division was disarmed. The same day of 15 December 2013 around 8:12pm the tiger division commander Major Gen. Marial Chinuong ordered to rearm the Dinka soldiers within the presidential guards without his knowledge as a deputy, he said. The plan of disarmament and rearmed DINKA was to arrest all NUER commanders, then to arrest Dr. Riek Machar or to kill him and put the rest of SPLM leaders who were opposed Salva Kiir to prison. On the other hand Hon. Tut Gatjuol Kom told the South Sudanese people to unite and work together to bring change to South Sudan.

We Mayom Students representing this Accurate document to International Community’’ United Nation to get their attentions to General Salva Kirr’s government in Juba South Sudan’ Dinka-SPLA Juba Faction have killed 26,000 innocent Nuer in Juba From 16 – 20 December 2013.

Where the most Threatening International Acknowledged Crimes are:

  • Genocides
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Terrorism
  • Deliberately Transmitting Diseases
  • Corruption

The crimes the SPLA army committed against Nuer inhabitants early this year and those crimes go beyond legal acceptable crimes against humanity and war crimes in violation of the Geneva Convention. The attacks the SPLA instigated against innocent Nuer civilians in South Sudan Juba, the SPLA army burn up 7,800 civilians alive, Sixty five children, elderly women and men disable were not able to escape to UNIMISS CAMPs burned alive. The SPLA soldiers killed every civilian who attempted to escape. It was reported by UN that the SPLA have killed more than two hundred civilians who tried to escape. All these reports were confirmed by the United Nation Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) after visiting the area and all those reports are applicable, the events are widespread and systematic intended targeting particular family’’ they are not random acts of violence rather than systematic acts which warrant international should investigate since they meet qualification as crimes against humanity that the international community has a responsibility to investigate.

Gen: Salva Kirr Mayardit and his Crimes Committed in Juba

(SPLM/A) targeting Nuer inhabitants in Juba residential areas:

We Mayom Students in Sudan are calling International Community (ICC) to investigate General Salva Kirr Mayardit for his purpose act of penalty of the entire Nuer massacre including their domestic animals in other places Mayom (Bentiu)’ General Salva Kirr Mayadit directed the SPLA-Juba Faction army of the mass killing that took place in Juba and raped underage girls and pregnant women, destroying villages moreover the murder of men, ICC should take General Salva Kirr Mayardit who terrorized his own people’ he has lost the legitimacy since he killed innocent civilians on 16 December 2013 who have nothing to do with Dr. Riek Machar of the SPLM politics.

Novemeber 26, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — You guys keep asking these questions, Is Riek the only bright Nuer whom can lead, why can’t Nuer chooses another visionable Nuer and neglect Riek Machar? Why is he illegally killing Nuer for his own interest and yet they still believe in him? And many other more senseless questions, Well you can ask any question you wanted to ask but the fact is that, With the exception of few individuals whom you might have bribed with the money of the resources you have illegally sold or those thugs who are working hard day and night to develop their mountains bellies in juba by betraying their fellow Nuer civillians to earn a better living under Salva Kiir, or those cowards who fear to walk in the bush and prefer to live as slaves under a tribal leader.

We the Nuer Community World wide believes and trust him ( Dr. Machar ) and we will never and never betray, replace or neglect him with any other chicken hearted and visionless Nuer down there who is with your corrupt regime developing his dirty belly with the  money he illegal earn by accepting Kiir his destructive policy on a section of his community.

Any thug that Kiir has endorsed with Authority to impliment his policies and interest is not our choice, any thug in high position of kiir his Government commencing from Ministerial positions upward has destroyed his political ambitions among us and will never hold any post or said any thing in Nuer community gathering after this dying regime, they should work with all their abilities to keep kiir in power and keep the visionable man away as they are doing now,  otherwise any change that comes with time or if the said power sharing succeded then they should forget of politics, that will mark the end of their dirty political career.

This time we will never forgive any traitor at the end of this war, who ever has contributed in the death of our innocent civillians in juba in any way will never be pardoned. Dr. Machar will always be the one up there as long as he is still alive and ready to risk his dear life to restore lasting peace that will later be enjoyed by our offsprings in South Sudan. he is always the one saying NO to injustices, tribal dominated leadership, corruption and everything that deny equality among South Sudanese, he love every South Sudanese like himself and wish us to be all treated equally with out tribal or religious affiliation, the only known Nelson Mandela of the Eastern and Central Africa is our future hope, the only one that is capable of setting the country to a bright future south sudan that every one will enjoyed.

He return to the bushes of South Sudan severals times and abandon his luxurious buildings to encounter mosquitoes bites and other hardships in the bush to see us being treated equally and enjoyed  freedom.

The answers you guys are always suggesting to us on the above questions will never be approved or implimented as you want them to be. This is the answer that will always stay. If you can stand by your murderer and incompetent son, why not us to rally our support behind our visionable son that always brings optimism to South Sudanese?

Stop asking these senseless questions that will never gives u the answer you wish.

Diplomats crossing to Opposition: What does it signifies to the World?

Editorial analysis

Nov, 26th, 2014 (Nyamilepedia)- In a diplomatic principle, Diplomats are understood to work in a profession that requires specific skills and capacities that not everybody has. Thus, their profession is widely accepted as an exclusive job with loads of privileges to assist its main duty to pursue national interests abroad. In a good sense, a diplomat is defined as “an official whose job is to represent their government in a foreign country.” In a cynical sense, a diplomat is often described as “an honest man” sent abroad to lie on behalf of his country.

According to the “principal-agent” theory of diplomacy, a diplomat is the agent who is assigned with certain tasks delegated by the principal. The principal refers to the state or those who rule the state and thus own the right to set the national agenda.

However, after the crisis emerged in Juba on the 15th of December 2013, some of the Diplomats that were representing the Interest of the Republic of South Sudan crossed to the Sudan People Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM/IO) under the Leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny and some of them have been replaced already and other are not yet replaced.
Surely, the crossing of the diplomats to opposition is a very big concern to the government because; some of the diplomatic relations that might not work well in this scenario will be regarded as result in the abandoning of the positions within government officials who were send abroad for special mission and they have failed to accomplish the tasks.

Moreover, some diplomats cross to the opposition in late hour due to looking for positions since the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) have proposed to the two warring parties of the conflict to form the Government of National Unity that will accommodate all the parties involved in South Sudan.

The crossing of former South Sudan ambassador to Geneva, Ambassador Lumumba Stanislaus and Henry Dicah Odwar, a former MP that have defected to SPLM/SPLA in opposition, as well provoked the diplomatic relations. What does it mean at this stage? And as well the defection of the deputy head of Mission of South Sudan to Ethiopia David Dang Kong that I crossed on the Media on Friday, what does it signifies at this movement to the people of South Sudan?

Well, for those who crossed to the opposition early in January 2014, they might have their own vision and mission that they want to accomplish in one way or the other but the question is, what of the one that are crossing now? Is it because they have smelled something coming out or what is interests behind? What information will they say to the opposition that will bring down the government when the current crisis and situation is almost to come to an end by God grace?

South Sudan: Salva Kiir Agrees To Air-lifting of Rebels To Pagaak Conference!

Nov 26, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan president Salva Kiir gives a green light to United Nations Mission in South Sudan(UNMISS), IGAD and partners to facilitate and transport rebel commanders and delegates from various parts of the country to Pagaak, Upper Nile State, for consultations on IGAD-led peace process.

“Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardiit has preparably [preferably] and out of good gesture for the benefit of peace in the Country, agreed to allow for the facilition and the transportation of rebel’s delegates from the areas in Unity, Upper Nile, Jonglei to Pagak where they intend to hold their conference” said Mawien Makol Arik.

According to Amb. Mawien Makol Arik, the spokesman for the Ministry of foreign Affairs and International relations, president Salva Kiir permits the SPLM-SPLA (in Opposition) to be transported by air in response to IGAD-Special Envoy’s request to allow the SPLM-SPLA to conduct their consultations as agreed during the recent IGAD summit.

“This came in response to Special’s request to enable SPLM/A- In Opposition’s delegates to conduct their consultative conference inline with the resolution passed by the last IGAD summit in order to allow the rebels conference takes place for the benefit of reaching the peace settlement of the conflict in the country” the Spokesman added in his brief press release.

The president’s response, however, came after the 8th session of IGAD peace process has been adjourned after the two sides failed to show up yesterday, 25th August, as agreed. The grounded Opposition is yet to response to Salva Kiir’s late offer.

South Sudan’s warring factions were given 15 days to consult their leaderships on power sharing, system of governance and other protocols agreed by the two principles at the IGAD summit this month.

While the government held its brief consultations in Juba, the SPLM-SPLA’s conference is yet to begin in Pagaak. Various delegates from different countries have reportedly arrived, however, a few military delegations are yet to reach the venue.

The Chairman and Commander in Chief of SPLM-SPLA (in Opposition), Dr. Riek Machar, was received in Pagaak yesterday. Maj. Gen. Koang Chuol Ranley and other generals from Upper Nile state have also arrived.

In other reports, however, the government is accused by the armed opposition of attacking multiple positions in Jonglei and Upper Nile state.

“Kiir’s genocidal Forces commanded by Brig. Gen. John Maluit Wei today renewed hostilities against our Combat Units by launching simultaneous attacks on several defensive positions which included; Pachot, Maan-Nyang, Thak En Char, Dor and Biel” Said Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, SPLA-IO spokesperson.

“Phom El Zaref, the Administrative HQs of Fangak County in northern Jonglei State also came under heavy shelling for the second consecutive day from Uluak on western bank of the White Nile in Panyikang County, Upper Nile. The SPLA Gallant Forces under overall command of Maj. Gen. Gabriel Tangiye repulsed all the attackers to Canal.” Brig. Lul added.

South Sudan Election In 7 MONTHS, Consultations Underway in Pagaak!

Nov 25, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — South Sudan president Salva Kiir Mayardit is calling for an early election before July 2015.

The president convened political parties, civil societies and SPLM-Juba faction in the capital to consult their views on the IGAD-led Peace process, however, the president instead told the gathering that an election must be convened before July 2015.

Leaving many questions unanswered, the president reiterates that only election can resolve the one-year-old conflict of the newly independent state.

The president, who pledged in May that he “must always be the leader of that country”, believes that the legitimacy of any government must be driven from the citizens through a democratic process and therefore an election has to be done in less than seven months.

Salva Kiir in the past hinted that the election could be delayed for 2 to 3 years due to lack of resources, however, he was opposed by the region and the rebels that Salva Kiir does not have such capacity to decide over the election of the country.

The IGAD have proposed 30 months of transitional period, however, the UN Security Council hinted an alternative resolution.

Due to poor prospects for peace, the United Nations Security Council is considering placing South Sudan under UN Trusteeship for up to ten years.

To Salva Kiir, such an imposition is never an “African solution to an African problem”, although his chances of restoring peace through African mechanism are fading.

The president washes off his hands over the power sharing agreement, federal systems of governance and IGAD protocols that he signed in August and earlier this month.

In speech, Salva Kiir claims that his country is federal and any powers sharing deal must be moved to national parliament for approval and must be agreed upon by the people of South Sudan.

The president, although he once opposed, is pointing at the “independence” of the ten states as a clear indication of federalism in the country, despite the president removed nearly half of the elected ten governors before their term was due. Not a single by-election has been held as constituted in the constitution.

But I don’t mean that you can decree federation that let us go federalism. You cannot do it. It is the choice of the people. And also somebody said it before here that the ten states we have are almost federal states. They have their own parliament, they have their constitution and they have everything that they have. What they may not have is the money; is what they don’t have.” Said Salva Kiir, the president.

We accepted the position of a Prime Minister, but will be the one to decide according to the constitution. And if we come up with an agreement, we will make changes, because we did not have the position of a Prime Minister before.” Kiir added.

The government delegation to Addis Ababa peace talks is also rejecting the idea of parallel armies for the two factions in the country.

According to earlier document presented to IGAD by Dr. Riek Machar, the factions must retain their armies to ensure their securities within the country until confidence and trust is restored to integrate the two SPLA factions into one South Sudan army.

Thousands remain in IDPs and refugees camps across the country, including the capital, and beyond the borders as war continue, and new rebellions are suspected in other parts of the country.

The ruling party, SPLM, plugged the country into a brutal civil war, marked by massacres, war crimes and atrocities following a power struggle shadowed by what the politicians referred as “dictatorial tendencies” and “lost of vision” of the SPLM party.

The party failed to resolved its internal differences and to hold its national conventions and primaries to elect their 2015 party’s flag bearer(s), and prepare the country for the 2015 election.

Ten of thousands, civilians and soldiers, have been killed and nearly 2 millions people displaced to IDPs camps and other parts of the regions.

In other reports, delegates of SPLM-SPLA rebel factions are gathering for an intensive consultations in Pagaak of Upper Nile state. Delegates from Canada, Australia, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia have reportedly arrived at the venue. Military generals from other parts of the country and delegates from neighboring Sudan are expected to arrive in two to three days.
