Protest Letter to H. E. President Salva Kiir Mayardiit

By Mark Dut Malual

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”, Martin L. K. Jr., Dec. 1960

December 30, 2014 (SSNA) -- I am writing to your Excellency on behalf of my people – the Thuyic Community to protest the designed-extermination-process of our people (Thuyic Community of Maleng-agok Payam) in Eastern Rumbek County.

This process is dated back to 2001 beginning with elimination of  our cattle youths leader Bech Dong Manguen, then late Chief Maker Mabor Riak – that continued unabated till the hour I author this letter for your attention, your H.E.

There is no community in Lakes State or South Sudan for that matter, which has been subjected to these heinous acts, and no attention drawn for their cause, but only Thuyic Community in South Sudan, who still believe that there exists a government in South Sudan, Juba, but not in Lakes state.

Our people have been exposed to the following suffering and unbearable pain:

1. Our youth leaders have been their first targets, to which the mission of their elimination has been succeeded. Bech Dong Manguen and Diengdul Maliec are just two examples of this design, because they come from Thuyic Community.

2. Our people’s chief late Maker Mabor Riak was the first chief to be murdered in cold blood in 2002 because he comes from Thuyic Community of Maleng-agok Payam!

3. Our people’s individual youths (P.S. Turguau Makoi Ayuek) have been ambushed and killed because they come from Thuyic Community of Maleng-agok Payam!

4. Our people as a community have been assaulted, killed, and dislodged from their villages of Agukuel, Maleng-agok, Makuac, Panbarkou, Gorok, Malual etc for more than five times; for days, months, and as I write, it is going a year having been sent off their homes!

5. Our people’s women and girls have been gang-raped since 7th August 2014, and culprits of these offenses have not been apprehended to answer their charges. Is this the South Sudan that my community could be part of?

6. Our people’s livestock have been raided, property of all forms looted, and other assets destroyed, including their housing and no one (among these wrong-doers) has ever been apprehended or even asked to account!

7. Our people’s elderly (Makur Chol Ayup, Mapuor Majur Mathet etc) and children (Akoi Wuol Mabor 14 months old girl-child-killed), all have not been spared during this last attack of 27th December 2014, just because they come from Thuyic Community! Extermination at full swing!

8. Our people’s school-going pupils caught up at homes were not spared (Deng Maker Makuer, Muorwer Mapuor Akuckuer, Maweer Mapuor Akuckuer, Mayor Bol Akuckuer & Kaman Thuch Manyang), are example of bad intent of elimination by Gony section in Aliemtooc west against our people at the watch of the state government.

9. Our Community five schools (of Maleng-agok, Panbarkou, Agukuel, Gorok, Ayen-Paciec) have been closed since 6th August 2014. Our pupils did not sit any exams beginning from class seven to nursery, when our assailants’ schools were functional and their pupils took their exams, and no one including the state education minister made any efforts to have them opened or even any word of care to signal that we are being part of this community of Lakes state.

10. Our community pregnant woman (Akuac Wuol Deng) was assaulted in her house by the daughter of Governor Maj. Gen. Matur Chut Dhuol (…), no any investigation has been launched to ascertain why did she assaulted her neighbor and killed her innocently? This is because she is the daughter of Governor Matur Chut, who both belief that Thuyic Community member are premier enemies.

11. Our community cattle youth – Mangang Manyang Deng was attacked within Maleng-agok Payam market and killed instantly. None of his attackers has been detained and no one has made query of why no justice for his life.

12. On 27th December 2014, our Thuyic Community members chattered a plane to airlift six victims of this ethnic cleansing to Juba. On hearing this information, Director of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Mr. Deng Malual Mathiang Ajuong ordered for a shoot down of this plane, fortunately, the Lt. who was ordered defied on the ground that he has not been serve with letter of shoot down to act on, thus the plane reached Juba late evening. One of these victims is currently being denied flight to Nairobi for better care by Governors’ brother in SPLA Juba, alleging that the victim is a culprit. Culprit in what form when he is a casualty of ethnic cleansing in pursuit by Governor and his relatives. Mr. President, send your team to investigate this order, you would be shock of how bad the leadership here is! Oh! Lord God, come to the aid of our people in Maleng-agok Payam and her surrounding villages.

13. On 26th August 2014, our Thuyic Community made every effort to arrest one of their own, who retaliated on late Paramount Chief Aparer Chut Dhuol. He is the only one now, investigated within three months period, and sentenced to death, when those other culprits remain at large!

Is there any justice here in Lakes state?

Your Excellency, we were expecting a little sense of humanity and leadership from Lakes state Governor Major General Matur Chut Dhuol in dealing with insecurities of Lakes, and especially with his own armed clan men including who assault the other side, either to use necessary force to prevent them from in assaulting their perceived enemies of Thuyic in their villages or he gives way to any other person, in tendering in his resignation letter to your high office; even when his daughter has murdered innocent pregnant women. This did not happen.

Earlier on, Matur Chut has been a suspect of igniting this sectional feud since 2001. This is now proven beyond reasonable doubt, yes indeed he is. He has never made any efforts to address to the two groups, till yesterday he went to Panbarkou to talk to victims of his design after they have been devastated in their homes. All along, he could not travel to Panbarkou, because he is accused of being behind the crises.

Your Excellency, are we not part of South Sudan that we all fought hard to the last beat of independence that we are left at the mercy of those who have taken authority as theirs – (supposedly our authority) to use against us?

With this appalling state of our people agony that we would like to hear your apt response or else we will conclude in two days that you don’t care of our people’s lives like other South Sudanese suffering elsewhere.

On 16th August 2014, three youth leaders of our Thuyic Community of Maleng-agok Payam petitioned your government, making necessary recommendations as redemption, but there was no proper action, but rather poorly plan of disarmament during which 107 lives of our dear soldiers were lost in their battle with Pakam pastoralists.

Oh! Lord God, come to the aid of our people back home in Maleng-agok and her villages from the hands of the merciless evil men! And we pray for peace and tranquility in South Sudan!

The 27th December 2014 death toll on our people went to 17 persons dead including a 14 months old girl child – Akoi Wuol Mabor, caught up with her mother in Panbarkou village of Maleng-agok Payam. This child—unoffending, innocent and beautiful was a victim of one of the most vicious, heinous crimes ever perpetrated against humanity. I call on Wuol Mabor, the father of Akoi, that inspite of the darkness of this hour, you must not despair, you should not become bitter, nor must you harbor the desire to retaliate with violence – allows God to retaliate!

May our 14 months old girl-child Akoi Wuol Mabor’s soul rest in eternal peace!

Thank you.

I am writing on behalf of our Thuyic Community of Maleng-agok Payam, who HAVE suffered in their dignified end and for their existence!

Deployment of Ugandan, Rwandan, Chinese, and Ethiopian Armies to South Sudan is business and Resources Ripe-off Plan

By Gatwech Deng Wal

December 30, 2014 (SSNA) -- Deployment of other countries’ armies to South Sudan is for the primary purpose of accessing resources. This is similar to what America did to Iraq some years ago. They deployed their troops to Iraq in order to find “Mass Destruction Weapons” and later the result failed to uncover any such weapons in Iraq. However, it was just a plan to justify the invasion of Iraq to get their resources and boost their country’s economy. Now this is what is happening to South Sudan. East African countries and China are imitating American’s system; they are deploying their armies and troops to South Sudan under the guise of providing security and stability but it is business in the making.

Despite their claims of providing security and maintaining stability in South Sudan, they will make the situation worse and more fragile in that their desire to be present in South Sudan will make them compete for resources and more likely to be involved in conflict should anything go wrong in relation to their claims of providing security and stability in South Sudan.

A good example of these issues is Uganda and Rwanda armies.  These countries’ armies and troops were deployed to South Sudan in the early stages of the war. Their main aim was to provide security and contain the situation in South Sudan. Yet, there has been no improvement and stability seen by South Sudanese and other people around the globe.   Instead, they fought and are still fighting against the SPLA/M in Opposition alongside the SPLA/M Juba. Nevertheless, they committed war crimes by killing innocent South Sudanese with cluster bombs and machine guns. As Ugandan and Rwandan armies failed to provide security, I feel that other countries’ armies deployment will make no difference.

The deployment of foreign armies is business and resources ripe-off plan. This is because those countries’ armies will receive large salaries and incomes not from their countries but from South Sudan. At the same time they will import mineral resources to their countries under the guise of providing security in the war-torn country, South Sudan. Such large salaries and mineral importation to their countries will then cause South Sudan to carry large debts that may never be paid off.

It is hard to imagine that those countries can deploy their troops in the pretext of security while wanting to extract resources from South Sudan. If Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD)’s leaders or mediators failed to bring peace and stability to South Sudan through negotiation, then it would be much better to leave South Sudanese alone with their affairs.

The current atrocities committed by Ugandan and Rwandan armies are enough and should cease. South Sudan is for South Sudanese not for foreigners to take advantage of. Instead of deploying foreigner troops, Ugandan and Rwandan armies have to first pull out from South Sudan in order to give peace a chance and minimise the level of injuries, fear, and threats of violence to South Sudanese. Although IGAD’s leaders or mediators are not doing enough to bring peace to South Sudanese warring parties, it is their responsibility to seek another way of bringing peace and stability. Deployment of foreign armies will not bring peace, security and stability in South Sudan.

Rachel Nyadak Paul's statement to take tea in Uror County next week is mere dream

By: Sirir Gabriel Yiei Rut

December 30, 2014 (SSNA) -- Hon. Rachel Nyadak Paul who serve as the deputy minister for information and broadcasting in the current government of President Salva Kiir Mayardit is in the shoes of puppet Gordon Buay Malek who is well known of issuing baseless propagandas which does not hold water to the Media outlets thinking Lou Nuer White boys, the mighty Silva and Golden army ever can be frighten and got scare by words coming out from a human mouths. Of course not, our white army cannot be shaken by propaganda from a woman mouth.

For Christ sake who do Nyadak think she is….? Ok…………… So it is true that went a woman lost her husband earlier, she will be entitled to all ups and downs, shorts and longs, big and larges, better and worse, hot and colds, strongest and weak, but let me tell you clearly and very nakedly (Nyadak) that; your Chinese troops, Uganda mercenaries, your boys (Mathiang Anyoor) to whom you are their Sugar Mummy, the entire SPLM- Juba Politicians including them SPLA Generals whom you have reluctantly decided to open your two legs to, might not and will not take Uror 'Mun Loal' within a week. True must be told.

I can't imagine a person borne in the same area where her umbilical cord was buried still keep wishing the same destination more destruction and bad lucks? How can we term this person? Well, I will call this extreme madness, selfishness and a person who think not of the people who voted for her or the land she vow to developed, but Money as everything in her life. Period.

Moreover, it is always good to think twice before you leave, Rachel Nyadak Paul should think of refuting/dismissing or apologizing to the public and particularly to greater Lou Nuer immediately or as soon as possible because the more she laid low the more things will falls apart on her side.

Hon. Nyadak Paul who force her way up through do or die intercourse and through no retreat no surrender kind of sexual sacrifices to reached where she is today cannot listen or fears any man, except the man who employed her.

But Nyadak should also put in her small medulla of langata (brain) that wherever you come from always matter in politics, Politics considered your strong hold mostly during any election. Now that you want to destroy your County, which constituency will you come from probably went time comes for election? And who will vote you in once again?

Too bad to imagine your fateful ending honorable……………

However, your days are numbered. It is useless for us to waste time responding to your fake statements that you stated to get your daily earning. You are no more but morning dew that always evaporates went sees the Sun start showing his eye……..

I have spoken my words and may gods of the land hear my voice……..
