Oct 26, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —–  On October 25, South Sudan’s incumbent president, Salva Kiir Mayardit, ordered ten trucks and military escort, reportedly, to evacuate his Dinka Ethnic from Yei River county to Juba, the national capital city, for their own safety.

For the last three weeks, the president has been blamed by his community for an alleged killing of 21 dinka civilians along the Juba-Yei road earlier this month.

According to reports that have not been independently verified, 21 civilians were targeted in the name of “MTN”, a code that is being ambiguously used across Equatoria to refer to members of Dinka ethnic group in non-Dinka territories.

According to SPLM/A(IO)’s Girma Apaya, the reporter in the office of the Commander of SPLM/A- IO forces in Mundri, Western Equatoria State, ten trucks have already arrived in Yei from Juba and are now preparing a big military buildup, mainly of Dinka militia loyal to the president, the Mathiang Anyoor, to escort the trucks from Yei to Juba.

Girma said their military intelligence along the Juba-Yei road are closely monitoring these events but he wonders if President Salva Kiir is doing this in order to relocate his headquarters to Yei to carry out offensives on the remaining non-dinka civilians as he threatened last week.

“Now to those blind Equatorians calling themselves Governors, including, the likes of Wani Igga,  Thomas Cirilo,  Obete Mamur Meta, Lawrence Korbandy,  Anthony Lino Makana,  ELIAS Lomoro, Clement Wani Konga among others in the system can you see for yourselves the truths and yellow color of the regime against the people of other tribes of South Sudan.” Apaya asks Equatorian leaders on government side.

This evacuation followed similar evacuations of Equatorian NGO staffs from Bhar el Ghazal region and Upper Nile, a report that has been confirmed by the United nations in New York.

Apaya blames the Equatorians for failing to response to their own needs despite many clear signs that president Salva Kiir is working for the interest of his community.

“When we the youths said the regime is tribal and working only for the welfare of Dinka community, many Equatorions tend to turn their deaf ears to it.  Now,  with that development and forceful repatriation of 92 Equatorian NGOs workers from Bahr El Ghazal and 12 from upper Nile mainly from dinka areas, it’s now becoming clear that Kiir’s controversial statement and the warning of the Jeing Youths were becoming into its fullest of its implementation,” He said.

“It’s never a surprise thereafter to mention that soon, then latter,  a serious War of revenge by Dinka Ethnic groups shall be witnessed in Equatoria region and in Yei areas  in particular first” Apaya warns.

In the same press release the opposition calls on the sons and daughters of Equatoria to “please stand up and unite now before the worse happen and get ready for any eventuality against your own people” .

“The truth is and will always remain, let us wait if you want, truth are not always hidden, it will come clear soon after the repatriation of Dinka members from Yei to Juba. Believe me, get ready, we are at war,” Girma said.

To response to these reports, Nyamilepedia press has tried to get Government officials to comments or deny the allegations but to no success.

Other members of the opposition, including the Chairman of SPLM/SPLA-IO, Dr. Riek Machar, has warned president Salva Kiir during a recent interview with Associated Press that the latest hate speech by President Kiir against other communities could intensify ethnic wars.

President Salva Kiir used an example of a child whose parent were killed in a different incident along Torit-Lafon road to illustrate how Dinka civilians were brutally killed along the Juba-Yei road; however, independent investigations extended to Nyamilepedia by a local NGO in Torit indicates that the child and his parents were of Equatorian origin.

Despite attempts by the UN and other humanitarian agencies to independently investigate the alleged killing of 21 Dinka civilians along Juba-Yei road, Juba has refused to give any warrant for such investigation.

According to Mabior Garang de Mabior, the alleged killing of Dinka civilians along Juba-Yei road might not be true or it was done by some elements in the government to implicate the SPLM/A-IO and other armed groups in Equatoria.

Other government officials have went on to claim that SPLA-IO are holding Ugandan citizens hostage and are asking ransoms which Mabior and other SPLM/SPLA-IO officials have also denied.

“this is part of the counter insurgency tactics of the regime in Greater Equatoria intended to lure the Republic of Uganda into the conflict; This deception is demonstrated by the refusal of the regime to grant access to independent investigators to access the scene of these alleged crimes” Mabior explains.

  • It come to my attention to say that Dinka and their ally or supporters are “terrorists groups.
    Dinka troops, Uganda troops and JEM Rebel troops of North Sudan are the one who went to Nuer land, Collos land, Equatoria land for the aim of killing Nuer people, Collos people, and Equatoria people.
    I declare that Dinka and their ally are the groups of Terrorists like ISiS.
    I want Dr Riek Machar of SPLM-10 and his all leaders and their supporters to declare Dinka and their Ally as a groups of Terrorists. Dinka Ally came from daffiest countries for the aim of killing Nuer people, Collos people and Equatoria people.
    I need Dr, Riek Machach and his commanders to declare Dinka and their ally as a groups of terrorists today as we speak.

  • From Angry son of Western Bahr el Gazal with ANGER

    Dear Equatorians,

    Please forget that these food lovers, Wani Igga, Thomas Cirilo, Obete Mamur Meta, Lawrence Korbandy, Anthony Lino Makana, ELIAS Lomoro, Clement Wani Konga , Androga, Ann Itto, Nunu Kumba and the list go. Do not count them any longer your sons, brothers or sisters. They have seen and witnessed it all for themselves but they are still sitting there doing nothing! Another young prostitute and a bastard is Governor Nartisio Munier.

    Even a prostitute, when touched tastelessly will grumble but these useless sons of Equatoria have eyewitnessed it for themselves – the abuse and the insult Kiir and his militias have been doing to the people of Equatoria in their ancestral lands, right under their nose but no one among them can dare say a word. When the incident of Juba-Yei road took place, all the Dinka rose up and cried with one loud voice. They try to pretend that they felt the pain, when do Dinka start to value lives?

    Church leaders who are God fearing have come out and speak their ethical complaint about the unfortunate situation the non-Dinkas are going through in the South. But those of Equatorians like Thomas Cyrilo and Obote Mamur are walking around with their tails between their legs, threatening to remove their cloths and walk necked if someone touches their buttocks – What kindness is this?

    To all the good sons of Equatoria, very soon your real sons, brothers and sisters will liberate your mothers, elderly and the young ones from the abuse and the tyranny of Kiir and the Dinka forever. Sooner or later, you will become the captain of your ships and masters of your faith once and forever. Let Kiir not only to evacuate the Dinka from Yei to Juba. It is better to send them back to where they come from. Because sooner or later, the Baboon himself is going to be evacuated from Luri back to the Luaks of Bahr el shit and it is going to be a hyena exit.
