April 25, 2015 (SSB) —- Dr Machar war was diligently fought without critical assessment and lack of vision as well as exile strategies, to why war was fought and what need to achieve. Our poor innocents Nuer were mislead unknowingly through deception that Nuer were killed in Juba in 15-16Dec2013 cooked without logically independent thinking to what caused their death, who are they that died, their names etc and no properly analysis and exploring of options available on how to achieve justice for those that they claimed to have died love.
The community of Nuer were total confusion and misled by Dr Riek using propaganda and deception styles in order to win sympathies and win heart and mind of desperate Nuer without with them realising that the war is about Riek Machar to negotiate himself back to his position as a vice or prime but no about a life loss in first place.
To every South Sudanese knowledge’s and minds Riek Machar killed more innocents Nuer this war than what he claimed to have died in Juba Dec2013. Traditional when you are going to carrying out revenge attacked, it would not be done in disadvantage of you not wins or losing more but it must precisely and carefully calculated in order for you achieve victory, however, Riek Machar poor strategies, lack of visions and poor planning put the whole community of Nuer at risk and make them to be known as an enemies of the state of South Sudan
To be realistic, no one on the side of rebels can give the precise account of many lives that were loss on Dec 2013 on particularly two days war of Riek Machar failed coup attempted in Juba, I failed to understand how come Riek Machar came up with 20,000 lives loss, who give proper account on that day. Consequently Nuer people were not wiser enough to asked questions of accuracy of information and reason behind they killing before they can decided to go to war with brothers Dinka.
They should have wait to ratify and able accurately aware and rely on rightful information if the war was they only alternatives to bring justice those died. To justify the course of war against their brotherly Dinka, Nuer would have needs an independent investigation that will verify how war occurred and many have loss lives and who are they according to their names.
Therefore, no question if vice president James Wani, became president of South Sudan, Dinka Bor would have still be victims of Riek Machar because what is in his mind is that the seat and road to presidency in South Sudan is with Dinka and it foot is in Bor, regardless of division created by this war to divided Bor between South and North, we remain defined as one community as greater Bor.
Despite unknowingly, the number of Nuer killed on that every day in Juba, Peter Gatdat Yaak went on killing his second in commander in cold blood Ajak Yen, someone who was not harmful him, war time hero of North and South war of liberation unlike to Peter Gatdat who used by the government of Khartoum against Southerners. After killing Ajak, went on attacking Bor unarmed civilians who were under his protection.
Peter Gatdat like his brother Riek, acted without reasoning that he was station in Bor town, a historical town as son and not an enemy of the Bor in general, living peacefully in beautiful land of wonderful and well great people, a land that produced leaders, sons and daughters give their lives for liberation struggle and many never return home after struggle, were cowardly massacres without mercy.
Peter Gatdat would have taken vital roles to changes his mind and heart, furthermore thinks positively not to harm innocents civilian, and see alternative way of holding responsibly whoever carrying a out tribal killing in Juba. Whatever, happened in Juba, no one known it from Bor and they should not be victims of Juba government war with his vice who wanted to take government by force.
Without realization, the war spread like a wild fire a cross three states that are highly inhabited by Nuer who went door to door hunting down from town to town and villages to villages as well as churches and hospital were Dinka seek refuged were not spared, they Dinka a cross the three states became victims of Dr Riek Machar propaganda war with slogan that Nuer were killed in Juba by Dinka, which was purely lies and lack evidences to suggest that they war in Juba was focused on Nuer as Dinka in Juba also loss innocents people in Juba war.
To me this is not an isolated ferocity to 1991 couped against Dr John Garang, which was also weight heavily on Dinka Bor after Riek Machar failed to reach to Dr John Garang in Torit. They victims were Bor people; they were massacre, displaced and having their lives destroyed, they Dinka suffered massively and carried large bondages but they remains focus for liberation struggle, this has repeat itself in 2013 Riek Machar still using the same propaganda style pitted Nuer against Dinka. Furthermore Riek Machar have developed habit of pitting Nuer against Dinka in order to achieved his political ambition which make him always failed and stemmed to seek help from Khartoum in 1991.
Therefore, criticism and slogan of target killing have again emerged as a tools use by our enemies of South Sudan government who wanted to used it as weapons to implicated and replaced President Kiir that he have killed unknown number of Nuer, it was another lies played by those countries who are hosting and arming rebels despites the atrocities they rebels have committed, ignore from those countries remains to played vital roles in our country.
To me, Nuer and Dinka are brothers they needs one another despite propaganda division created by Riek Machar to put them against it each other. The common enemy of these two communities should know is Riek Machar, no Dinka is interesting of killing Nuer that is why the still hosted them in Bor Duk ku Duk and President Kiir home state but brothers on the opposite side should asked themselves, if its true that they are seeking justice to those killed in why Juba, then why killing more, why are u creating and endanger ever life of young Nuer in the name of Juba killing in Juba. Why are you not honest and open to Nuer community that you are fighting the war that you will never win even if devils is on your side.
Brothers from Nuer who are fighting in frontline while knowing that Riek Machar is living happily and waiting to have his lion share in the beautiful hotel in Addis Abbas while they are offering their life for those claimed to have died while they are living and eating free meals in UNMISS camp in Juba.
Moreover, just reflected and thinks twice of what you will achieve in this war, to prove to you that Dinka are not your enemies, despite killing in Bor, today Bor community in Duk ku Duk are holding Nuer civilians who are venerable and killers of their people but one have to used logical judgement which you people from opposition are lacking.
As we seen it in they state of Warrap where president came from, they are hosting your relative, feeding and provides them with protection, so why are you continuing with useless war if you are unable to provides protection and feeding they people you claimed they are your people. Stop the war and let realise that you have fought wrong war of one-man seat.
