South Sudan’s Basketball Star, Luol Deng, is an opportunist!

By: J. Nguen

September 7, 2015 (SSNA) -- There is nothing wrong for worshiping your one’s tribe ideals while respecting other tribesmen and women’s rights to life. In my viewpoint, tribes are nations but abused and disparaged by imperial rulers that ruled Africa.

Thus, I departed with this idea that South Sudan’s habitants are bunch of tribes and not nations. For that reason I will not envy those who think their tribe is a nation so long they respect the existences and the rights of others to life and freedom of expression and movements.

History has taught us that nations of European were once tribes and were emancipated of this tribe basis and became nations. There are now nations among other nations of the world. Their nationhood stands firm and fortified as of others. I wondered who is out there to tell us that we are just bunch of tribes and not nations.

On this basis, we should cease thinking diminutive and not that pathetic enough not to see the logic behind this writing.

Tribes are good things but tribalists blinded by bigotry and who do not respect other tribesmen and women right to life are bad and expose. Thus the intent of this piece and I decided to ostracize elusive figures who think they can hide from scrutiny.

Recently, I came to term that Luol Deng, the only South Sudanese Basketball star alive is a heartless tribalist and opportunist at best.

Evidently, Luol Deng does not heed other tribesmen and women right to life and existence. This is showcased by his exhibited behaviors toward South Sudanese civil population for the last twenty -one months since the civil war in the country started.

For the last 21 months, Luol Deng acted bizarrely when he visited South Sudan capital Juba. To be precise, Luol Deng never condemned the atrocities committed by the Dinka led Government in South Sudan. He did not even sympathize with those in UNIMISS camps and in harsh conditions. I am here talking about the displaced persons under UN’s care because they have no homes and they also fear for their lives if returned to burned home steads.

The last time I heard of Mr. Deng’s mission after visiting the suffering country was him building a basketball Court for his uncle, Manut Bol. Mr. Bol is another late Dinka basketballer, who once played for Chicago Bull. Mr. Manut comes from Luol Deng’s home region of Bhar El Ghazal.

While Luol Deng was building Manut’s court with hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions, hundreds of thousands of internally displaced children, women and elderly South Sudanese were starving to death in the UNMISS Camps across the country. 

Mr. Deng chose to build a court over dying children because the man seems not to care presumably the starving children, women and elders were not from Luol Deng’s region and tribe of Dinka nation.

This is a character of amoral being. As mentioned above Luol Deng never openly condemned the Dinka led Government sanctioned massacre of 20, 000 Nuer innocent civilians. The only logic perhaps, anyone would think of is the perpetrators were Luol Deng’s uncles from the Bhar El Ghazal region blindfolded by Luol Deng’s own father, Aldo Ajou Deng. Mr. Aldo Ajou Deng is one of the ring leaders who founded the Jieng Council of Elders.

Luol Deng’s tight lip is not a surprise but founded on this basis. Instead for Luol Deng to condemn the human rights abuses, crimes against humanity and mass execution, Luol Deng has talked about unity of the youths South Sudan without acknowledging what brought disunity in the first place.

Luol Deng didn’t acknowledge the victims and who has wronged them. Luol Deng’s position of unity among South Sudanese youths was /is not random but perfected to divert people’s attentions.

In the normal world, it’s logical that outcry of disunity must be with purpose and why people need to unite in the first place? Luol Deng has avoided answering these logical and relevant questions.

I got it and I perfectly believed that the world also got it as well. It’s Luol Deng’s father ongoing business. Luol Deng once says, “I am a Dinka from South Sudan.” It’s true that Luol Deng is a Dinka and his home region of Bhar El Ghazal is not affected by this current civil war. But more importantly, it’s true that those who committed the atrocities, the main perpetrators of the Nuer massacre were Mr. Luol Deng’s father, Aldo Ajou Deng’s followers.

So, why care I guess in Mr. Luol Deng’s viewpoint when dad is the designer of South Sudan’s time bomb.  The de factor is Luol Deng’s own father Aldo Ajou Deng. Aldo Ajou Deng is a leading star of notorious Dinka Council of Elders organization and whose aim is to mobilize Dinka tribal young men against other tribes’ innocent civilians.

JCE came out in many instances opposing peace in South Sudan and things stands the group is accused of manipulating President Kiir tribally taking incorrect decisions particularly on how to run South Sudan state of affairs.

It appeared Deng is following the steps of his father. In Mr. Deng many interviews, he appeared to praise his father as a man super intellect but the opposite is true. Luol Deng’s dad does not possess characters of an African elder. Most African elders are regarded wise but Deng’s many like him are the worse exception, which in my view is son like a father bloodline.

Ironically, Luol Deng has been very aggressive promoting fake unity of South Sudanese Youths in the Diaspora after seeing the fact that the Dinka Council of Elders tactic isn’t working at the international stage. The world hasn’t bought their cheap propaganda of tribal politic of elevating one tribe status above others.

Luol Deng is now using his basketball starship to rebuild his dad’s tarnished reputation because Luol Deng himself is ashamed. Deng’s basketball’s status allowed him to meet President Barack Obama of USA. Luol Deng himself alleged that Mr. President asked for his advice on South Sudan’s state of affairs.

South Sudanese were dumbfounded this unbelievable turn of event. Not that Luol Deng cannot meet President Barack but the fact that Luol could offer piece of advice to a first world president yet Luol Deng’s father was the man who drummed up and executed the massacre of 20, 00 Nuer innocent civilians in Juba is pathetic to say the least.

What Can Luol Deng advises President Barack for yet the blood of innocent South Sudanese children is smeared all over Luol family tree. As a matter of fact, I took this opportunity to remind President Barack and the rest of the world leaders not to dine with Luol Deng. Luol Deng is a tribalist and opportunist at best.

Many South Sudanese youths, both at home and in Diaspora know that Luol Deng cannot be trusted for he does not have humanitarian heart. This is proven when he built a basketball court for Manut Bol instead of helping starving children, women and elder in UNMISS based Camps across South Sudan.

Kiir’s anguished!

Dr. Peter Kopling

September 4, 2015 (SSNA) -- The few days leading to the signing of the South Sudanese peace compromise deal, was very revealing to the keen observers. President Kiir went through significant agony, which is a manifestation that something of great proportions, grave and uttermost importance to him was at risk. Never before have had we publicly noticed Kiir in such an Agony and dilemma.

Kiir try to cope with this dilemma by at first sending a letter of what amounts to rejections of the peace deal, when IGAD plus did not back down but rather stepped up their pressures, the Jieng council of elders landed him their hands by putting out their own press release outlining how dangerous the particular path to peace was.

The next maneuver by Kiir was to go through his political mentor Mr. Museveni in Entebbe where they sought to derail the Blue print by IGAD, this too failed to trick IGAD plus.

Then Kiir threw the ultimate Tantrum and refused to show up at the IGAD plus set date, August 17th 2015. By some press report, until Museveni called Kiir, which he must show up in 3 hours, Kiir ended up showing up at the 11th hours.

To most of us we thought there were no more cards left in Kiir’s hand to play against the peace deal and we were wrong! Kiir sought to delay or avoid the signing of the peace deal all together and refused to sign it instead return to Juba Empty handed without delivering peace to his people timely as planned.

The Agony then revealed itself, Kiir declared, “We have reservations”. Because of these reservations, Kiir would rather not end the blood bath for that is the direct implications of refusing to sign the peace deal. To Kiir and his cohorts, because of these reservations; let death continue to reign on South Sudanese. Mind you being the president, Kiir is the Chief of those who even rebelled against him one way or another. It seems if he had the abilities to kill off all his people who did not agree with him and rebelled against him he would do it rather than compromise!  He would rather have death continue to claim the lives of fellow citizens from both sides than sign the peace, simply because he has a reservations.

Mr. President, I have news for you, if you didn’t have reservations, then it would not be a compromise peace deal! 

You have a hell of tough time to, not because the peace deal was horrendous, you had hard time because for the last 10 years you never compromised, the interest that only mattered to you is that of Jieng and let the rest rot. Yours was the first and the last word, you have never learned to comprise. Like a true Dictator your color came through and you agony more over areas of the compromise peace deal that strip your powers than over the death of thousands of your fellow Citizens whose lives hangs in your hands!

You literarily have the power to give life and to take life we saw it the last 21 months. For 21 months you have not agonized over the loss of lives of fellow South Sudanese but over powers, you do! The truth is out; actually the most power hungry person in South Sudan is you! You strip 8 out of 10 elected governors off their Citizen given powers, you fire and appoint at will.

It was you who triggered the war by lying about a none existent coup and releasing your Illegal Militia on fellow Citizens in Juba and it is fitting you should be the one to end the bloodshed. You started it and you alone can end it.

You said, “The Peace deal is a reward for rebellions.” Well Mr. President, Look how much some of us have reservations against you but had to shallow it.

We know you lied about the Coup, so we have a lying president. We know all the deaths that resulted from this war is on you because you were the author of the war by killing democracy and lying about an imaginary coup which lead to thousands of loss of lives, thus the blood is on you. We know on top of this, you committed targeted genocide against your own people. We know because of you, there are more orphans in South Sudan and the number illiterates increased.

So this is the view of majority of South Sudanese, minus most Jiengs, about you. This being the case Mr. President, By IGAD plus, putting out a road map, keeping you as the President of this nation, the very one you let down and lead into bloodshed, We indeed too have some serious reservations about this peace deal and this peace deal is rewarding, a Liar, one who committed genocide and an ethnic cleanser, a tyrant and a corrupt inept leader!

We think your place is not at the presidency in Juba but at ICC, but never the less IGAD Plus have rewarded you for killing your fellow Citizens. Those of us who think this way had to swallow our bitterness for the sake of stopping loss of lives and must compromise.

Mr. President, it is a compromise peace deal, it is not a victory peace deal, but more important, it is lifesaving peace deal, which gives us the opportunity to learn to compromise and solve our issues through words not through deaths.

I wish to see you anguish more about loss of lives than loss of powers. You have revealed that what matters most to you is power, all your reservations has to do with reductions of  “this power that belong to you and they want to take it away, would you let them?”

The next 18 Months Mr. President, put your country’s interest first, not that of Jiengs and its Council of elders that have failed you and South Sudanese miserably, if you so do, you shall have a second chance to redeeming your legacy. For it would be said of you: you deliver your people a country and you also deliver them from utter destructions and gave them rights to life and liberty.

'Ambassador' Gordon Buay Malek: An Agent of Discord, an Unscrupulous Opportunist, and a Decomposition Bacterium to South Sudan's Diplomacy

By Kuir ë Garang

A Decomposition Bacterium to South Sudan's Diplomacy

September 3, 2015 (SSNA) -- Any human person who functions without structured code of professional and civil conduct is not only a mad man, but also, a dangerous man! And it’s no secret that a one Gordon Buay Malek, who— by the Republican Decree on November 18, 2014 became an ‘ambassador’ (without portfolio) — operates with no professional code of conduct whatsoever. He says whatever he wants whenever he wants. He proudly told a Jieeng Radio program (SBS Dinka) based in Australia on August 31, 2014 that “I have been issuing press statements since last year and no one questions me!...Ateny was talking from a position of ignorance! …Now I’m the government!” (Buay’s SBS Interview).

It makes one wonder as to where in the world a pathological sides-switcher could get such powers and voice? How can a man belittle the president, who controls power in South Sudan in such a manner? He belittles not only the Presidential press secretary, calling him ignorant, but also the Minister of Foreign affairs, who’s supposed to be his boss. And he [Buay] gets away with it!

What any fair-minded, caring and patriotic South Sudanese would ask is: how did this happen? How can a man, many times a rebel, now a mere ambassador, act as if he’s the president of South Sudan, the information minister, the security chief, the military spokesperson, and the presidential spokesperson… and gets away with it? Has President Kiir been so much reduced to complete political incompetence that the likes of Buay mock him in such a manner?

Mr. Buay should, in a world of rules, code of conduct, and job description, only do and say what the foreign ministry tell him! Well, he’s mocking not only the foreign minister, Dr. Marial Benjamin, but also the president of the Republic of South Sudan!

In August 2014, he sent out a Press Release about an alleged arrest of Mabior Garang as wanting to assassinate President Kiir in Ethiopia. Under what capacity does Buay write on behalf of the government, the president, the national security of Ethiopia and South Sudan? Buay has put the government and President Kiir in his pocket. Complete mockery! He’d previously done the same thing by claiming that Vice President Wani Igga (then the speaker) was attacked in November of 2012 in Calgary, Alberta, by citizens of Northern Bahr El Ghazal because of Mile 14. Nothing of the sort happened!

South Sudan is a sovereign nation that should have a clear, well-articulated foreign policy that should guide all diplomatic missions representing the national interest in the best way possible. It appears Mr. Buay operates either out of disdain for that foreign policy, or there’s no foreign policy to follow and that each and every figure with ambassadorial position does whatever he or she wants. What a country!

Ambassadors are supposed to toe the line of what the national foreign ministry articulates. Mr. Buay operates his own foreign policy in total disregard to the integrity, professionalism and the national interest of South Sudan. His quotidian mannerism, interest and articulations are a total disrespect to the integrity with which ambassadors are supposed to operate.

If figures like Mr. Buay represent South Sudan in the heart of World political theatre like Washington DC, is any one surprised that the government ‘Coup attempt narrative’ wasn’t respected by anyone in the world? How can a nation be respected when ambassadors disrespect the president and are answerable to NO ONE; When they shamelessly lie every day and aren’t aware of their job descriptions. Are we this confused?

Unless the likes of Mr. Buay are shown their rightful mandates as diplomats, we will continue to be the JOKE of the world.

Ambassadors aren’t politicians and their job description should be clearly spelled to them. And neither are ambassadors army generals to meddle in military issues. Mr. Buay shouldn’t be allowed to say anything at all in relation to the government and the military. His role should be restricted to bilateral relations between South Sudan and the nation in which he’s posted as a diplomat.

Does Buay have a hidden agenda?

An Unscrupulous Opportunist

The worst thing about President Kiir Mayardit is the fact that he thinks anyone who publicly professes support is his true supporter. Regrettably, the history of South Sudan has shown that impulsive decision-making, without any proper study in order to make well-informed decisions, is very dangerous. Buay Malek is an opportunist who can now wittingly hoodwink the president by professing anti- Nuer and anti-Riek sentiment. When and how many times has Buay become anti and pro-government supporter? How many people supported the government only to change within a very short time?

On October 22, 2010, Buay—after 2008 merger of SPLA and SSDF—in an article: “Kiir Will Not Listen to Supporters of Disunity,” praised President Kiir for pardoning those of George Athor, Gordon Koang, Gabriel Tang, David Yau Yau and Gatluak Gai.” Gordon Buay unashamedly wrote that “President Kiir Mayardit is a smart politician who has understood that negative doubters are individuals who want his administration to fail and do not appreciate his efforts to galvanize the people of the South in order to realize peace and development. Fortunately, the people of South Sudan have a President who is determined to unite the South and nothing will prevent him from realizing that.”

Buay expected to be included in the government and get a post. When that deal didn’t go through, and those warlords remained in their bushes, Buay again turned against the same President Kiir he called ‘a smart politician.” On January 24, 2011, he accused the President of violation of “Washington Declaration” and “South-South Dialogue: “Kiir's Decree Violates South-South Dialogue Agreement.”

So in 2011, Gordon Buay was calling President Kiir a dictator (previously ‘a smart politician’). In a psychologically challenged manner, he bizarrely posted a video on Youtube (Buay Video) in which he alleged that President Kiir has been impeached by the national assembly and appointed him [Gordon Buay] as an interim President due vote of No confidence on the President.  Remember Buay hasn’t given up this dream! He’s inside the power system!

Until April of 2013, Gordon Buay was part of South Sudan Liberation Movement/ Army-South Sudan Democratic Forum consortium of terror rebel groups.  In a Press Release on January 8, 2013, “Nuer Community Worldwide calls for change in South Sudan”, Buay Malek and Peter Chuol Tut wrote that “Lt. Gen. Kiir’s regime perverted the meaning of freedom in order to impose totalitarianism and ignorance in the country. Kiir and his henchmen say that “freedom consists not in doing what one wants to do, but in doing what is right.”

But in April of the same year Buay as a spokesperson of those of Matthew Puljang and Bapiny Monytuil, accepted an amnesty from President Kiir. What a difference three months make? Integrated into SPLA as an untrained, out-of-blue ‘General’, Buay all of a sudden ceased to say that “Kiir’s regime perverted the meaning of freedom in order to impose totalitarianism and ignorance in the country.”

How can President Kiir and the system miraculously change in three months? Once given his title as a ‘general’, Buay started to hail the then ‘dictator’ Kiir Mayardit as an exemplary leader in just three months!

In the same Press Release, Buay and Chuol wrote that “Four days before his assassination, members of President Kiir’s security guards warned Maj. Diing Chan Awuol to stop writing and any criticism against the regime. They explained that freedom of thought was only possible unless approved by President Salva Kiir and security organs.” So,

In 2005 - 2008 - Kiir is a bad dictator
In 2008 - 2010 – Kiir is good leader
In 2011 – April 2013 - Kiir is a bad dictator
In 2013 – present -  Kiir is a good leader!

This is hard to follow! Now, it’s time for Buay, as part of the government, to tell us what he meant? If President Kiir approved the assassination of Isaiah Diing Chan, then Buay needs to give us the details. Was Buay telling the truth or was he lying to smear the name of the president. If Buay was telling the truth then he needs to stand by the same principles he hailed then! And if he was lying then I see no reason why he’s allowed so close to the president; or why anyone should believe him! He accused the president of ordering the murder of Isaiah Abraham!

On March 18, 2012, in “The Color of Ethnic Domination in South Sudan’, Buay decried Dinka domination of the government: “It is crucial for members of the international community to be educated about the ideology of Dinka domination being pursued by President Salva Kiir Mayardit.” He goes ahead and writes that “Public realm tribalism being practised by Salva Kiir’s regime is responsible for ministries to be filled by one tribe; it is also responsible for land grabbing in Juba, Numeli, Yei and etc. It is also responsible for the massacre of Shilluks in 2010 and the killing of ten Bari civilians in Juba this month.” I was a rebel then, he’d say!

Mr. Buay, the government is still dominated by Jieeng! Check the list of ambassadors! Check the list of police state commissioners, and the Inspector General! Check the list of ministers, SPLA spokesperson, SPLA information director, presidential spokesperson, the government spokesperson and the head of government’s delegation to IGAD-mediated Peace talks. Journalists are still being killed and newspapers shut down! Opposition leaders can’t criticise or leave Juba! What exactly do you think has changed, Mr. Buay? And by the way, you are the THIRD in South Sudanese embassy in Washington DC after two Dinka men? Funny how life works, Buay! Are you just a sniffer of Jieeng’s elites’ dirty laundry, Mr. Buay? Is the creation of discord among Nuer worth your post and money?

Now, Buay wants to convince us that he truly supports President Kiir! Kiir killed Isaiah, right? Kiir is a dictator, right? Corruption thrived under Kiir, right? Dinka Domination thrived under Kiir, right? It’s bizarre that the good ‘ambassador’ believes Kiir is all of a sudden a good man because he allowed him into the government!

That’s ruthless opportunism and Marial Benjamin should either tame Buay or fire him completely. It’d be a good idea to fire Buay in order to see if he’d continue to support the president or if he’d rebel. Let this professional opportunist be fired in order for South Sudanese to see if Buay truly supports President Kiir! He’s a dangerous man!

Buay needs to tell the people of South Sudan and the President how different his past opportunism is from his current purported loyalty to the president? “Although it is true that violence in Jonglei State between Dinka and Nuer on the one hand and Murle tribe on the other is fuelled by cattle,” Buay writes. “Political violence which involved fighting between Salva Kiir’s regime and the rebel Movements in Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity State was caused by Dinka domination of power in the South.”

The same way Buay was writing about President Kiir is the same way he’s now writing against Dr. Riek Machar. Does Buay Malek think the president and his officials are very naïve and stupid? Does he think he will always get away with propaganda, lies and opportunism? Buay will say anything to get what he wants! Believe him for your own destruction! He’s going to destroy the government from within! How can he write against what the president has signed?

Is Buay working for internal destruction of President Kiir’s leadership? Is the way he undermines the leadership and protocols something to be watched?

An Agent of Discord

Any responsible South Sudanese should make the reduction of inter-tribal feuds a life-long goal. Without doubt, any national leader who makes creation of hatred based on propaganda, lies, blackmail and self-serving antics should be kept out of important national issues. But for reasons no sane South Sudanese understands, Gordon Buay has a clearance level that is almost equal to that of President Kiir. And everything he writes, says and plans not only embarrasses the president in the eyes of the world; his hateful machination creates a level of hatred that’ll take time to do away with.

Buay’s known association with career war-lords like Matthew Puljang and Bapiny Monytuil, Karlo Kual and Kolchara Nyang (killed by Puljang) makes him a terrorist. These men terrorized civilians as they fought the government of South Sudan in 2011 and 2012 in Unity State’s Mayom County. Nuer-Nuer conflict and Nuer-Jieeng conflict!

In 2012, Buay wrote that “When the ministries were set up in 2005, there were practices of tribal exclusions that made a lot of people to question the underlying policies and vision of Dinka elite. For instance, the Ministry of Legal Affairs and Constitutional Development which was under the guidance of Michael Makuei Lueth employed mostly Dinka Bor. Majority of employees of the Ministry were from Dinka tribe. The same thing to the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development which was also dominated by Dinka tribe.”

This was Buay beating the drum of Anti-Jieeng sentiment in South Sudan. But since Buay is now in the government and can’t talk against the very same system he previously accused of ‘dictatorship’ and ‘Dinka domination’, he has now started to create intra-tribal hatred (Nuer-Nuer), killing of women and children, and recruitment of Nuer Youth against other Nuer youth.

Small Arms Survey wrote in July 2015 that “Current Bul Nuer dominance of the state’s administration, however, makes a political solution to the conflict in Unity difficult to envisage. The enmity felt by the rest of the Nuer in Unity, and the degree of political and military control currently possessed by Matthew Puljang and Joseph Nguen Monytuel (the current governor, and also a Bul Nuer), makes it highly unlikely they would be willing to give up power within the state.”

And Buay, the spokesperson of this murderous group, is left to roam the streets of free, democratic states like United States and Canada.

It’s always reported in the news that the government killed women, children and elderly by burning some of them alive in Unity State. Well, the terror is executed by Matthew Puljang with Buay as their advisory voice. It’s sad that the government embraces murderous militia who are doing nothing but to reflect the government as murdering its own citizens. The burning down of Leer and the destruction of livelihood carried out by Puljang under Buay’s guidance are human rights violations the government is shouldering. Terrorist in Washington!

The division and hatred being created among the Nuer by Buay and his group is going to cost South Sudan a great deal. In Leer, over 100, 000 civilians were displaced with civilians being subjected to sexual violence, hunger and death and insecurity. This is terrorism of the highest order. And this is on May 19, 2015. On January 3, 2015, Gordon Buay wrote on his Facebook account that the government should not accept the demands of Riek Machar, calling him a “terrorist” and “tribal bigot.” First, Buay should be in no position to tell the government what to do. As an ambassador, he should only do WHAT the government tells him. Besides, Puljang who is his military and political ally, committed unspeakable atrocities in Unity states against fellow Nuer. Washington should be informed of Buay’s terror links! And we’ll let Ottawa know these recorded facts!

Small arms wrote that “On 19 June [2015] Bul Nuer youths, some of whom were involved in the offensive, and others who came from Mayom, marched south in high spirits; it was now their turn to augment their herds, and take the resources and livestock that remain in southern Unity. The government invited the youth of Koch county to join in this offensive. Such divide and rule tactics further entrenches deep divisions among the Nuer.”

And Buay is not only dividing Nuer, he’s trying his immorality among the Jieeng. Invited recently by citizens of Warrap state in the US, Buay tried to create seeds of discord between the Jieeng of Jonglei and Jieeng of Warrap. Buay tried to downplay Dr. John Garang’s place in the history of South Sudan by praising late hero Kerubino Kuanyin Bol. Instead of speaking as a responsible citizen and praise the contribution of Warrap citizens to our liberation struggle, Buay couldn’t help but play his immoral game by trying to create problems between the two Jieeng groups. What was even sickening was the fact that Gordon Buay believed he knows the history of Warrap State better than the citizens of Warrap state! What an ambassador!

When will Buay stop? When will the government see and shut up this agent of discord? Pitting one Jieeng group against another, and one Nuer group against another, shouldn’t be condoned by President Kiir! Buay Must Go or Shut Up!

Protocol and Clearance Level

Every government has structured and protocols system. Buay defies them and becomes the government spokesperson, president spokesperson, a security agent, the decider of who should say what and when as he told SBS Radio. That’s shocking! This man undermines the government and embarrasses the president whether he’s a rebel or a presumed government supporter.

There are security issues that should be known only to the president and security heads. Buay seems to have a security clearance level of the president. Unlike everyone in the country, not even the president himself, Buay does what he wants when he wants. It’d be easy to ask our neighboring countries to see if there’s an ambassador who reports sensitive issues the government has not even reported.


In 2005 - 2008 - Kiir is a bad dictator
In 2008 - 2010 – Kiir is good leader
In 2011 – Kiir is a bad dictator
In 2013 – present - Kiir is a good leader!

Seriously! It’s time for South Sudanese in the US to write to their congressmen and women and alert them about this terrorist and agent of discord. If he’s changed as he says, then let him shut up and be diplomatic! Ottawa will soon know Buay’s support of terror on civilians unless he shuts up and be an agent of unity!
