Why Truth is Always Bitter and Most can’t Swallow it
Generally speaking, Mr. Simon Yel, do not blame Hilde Johmson for what has happen in our country, for my personal perspective as a civilian, there is no Alleged Failed ‘Coup’ in South Sudan, it is a regime’s tactic to suppress party opposition.After failing to remove them, they cooked what they called it Coup. You may compared different types of stories he(president) narrated from day one and until he is apologizing at sunday during mass in St. Theraza Cathedral at Kator 22/12/2013 that Yes , there are soldiers(SPLA), who are responsible for killing civilian during the days of 16/17/18 of December 2013 and later SPLA Spokesperson Col. Philip Aguer acknowledge that they have arrested seven soldiers responsible for killing during the dark days of 16/17/18 of December.

And i am resident of Gudele area, what i have seen with my own eye is that the killing of Nuer civilians , Women, children all at Gudele Blocks (4,5,6,7,8,9) and Gudele Two(2) , 107 Area and my own brother has been shot at head by his dinka colleague just because he said why are we killing Nuers youth of 13 and 12 years of age.

President Salva Kiir and his presidential guards Soldiers and his new militia called Koc Ben from Bahr El Ghazal are the one started the war in South Sudan, So we citizens of Juba knew who started the war and we are ready to tell the Truth.

    Mr. Simon Yel,
    I know you’re in great pains since your own brother has been shot in the head by his own tribe person, a Dinka colleague. But to get the fact about your brother who got shot, I may ask that; is your brother survived from the head-shot or passed away on spot? The failed coup attempted incidence must be investigate about how it happened, and what side have started it, or and if it is what you described as “It’s a regime’s tactic to suppress party opposition” then justice must also find its ways to hold who responsible for December 15, 2013; Juba’s massacre which had spread to Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity States as an ethnic cleansing revenge. Let’s write comments to find out what actually cause Juba’s massacre which had spread in some States and became ethnic cleansing revenge.

  4. Basically Ido agree with the second write or opinion, Kiir has brought things South people will forgotten him. Kiir history has been diverted and therefore,people not in power are blame of the failure of Kiir. Riek and others we prettify most award of their conduct.this is a different stories in Which people without causing any life could be blameless. The suggestion is for Kiir to stop the war rather than causing more lives. If Kiir fail to stop this war, then there is as a action and possibly followed by an arrest. When Kiir is arrested, Kiir will forgot what he recently named as an attempt coup.

    Dear South Sudanese, I believe this matter could and still will be resolve within the SPLM party’s structures. Sometimes I wonder what is going on in our minds especially some of you whoa re residing in western countries where democracy is preach as gospel. Here in Australia for example people get fine by the electoral commission if you’re found not registered for voting, yet you support chaos and anarchy in your homeland country — what a pity

    Ethnic domination in South Sudan

    Why is truth always..Bitter??

    By General South

    When late Dr. John Garang told the people of South Sudan in 1994 that “an oppressor has no color”, a lot of South Sudanese thought that he was referring to black Sudanese who oppressed their own people. But with the advent of independence, so many people have begun to analyse what he was referring to and realized that anybody, whether a brother or a sister, could become an oppressor if s/he denies the citizens equality, democracy, rule of law and justice.
    Mr. Simon Yel Yel ,to prove that there is “no Coup attempted” does not need somebody to study engineering in Malaysia, When South Sudan became an independent state in 9/07/2011, many people had hoped that the newly independent country would be built on principles of ethnic equality, democracy, rule of law and federalism. There was a reason for people to be optimistic about the future of South Sudan. Those who had hoped that South Sudan would become a paradise of equality justified their argument on the belief that the people of South Sudan had bitterly struggled for equality in the old Sudan for over fifty years. Common-sense has it that people who struggled for ethnic equality for more than five decades would be able to manage ethnic diversity in a way other African countries failed to do. It is true that people who struggled against the imposition of Arabism and Islamism in the old Sudan could not end up having a government that would behave like successive Khartoum regimes that treated ethnic Africans in general as second-class citizens and the people of South Sudan in particular as third-class citizens.
    Prior to independence, so many Southern Sudanese thought that an oppressor who denied people their rights was a Muslim man in Khartoum with a turban on his head. Little did the ordinary people know that a Dinka man with scarification on his forehead would become the new oppressor who may practise the worst kind of ethnic domination in the newly independent state. During the reign of successive regimes of old Sudan, ethnic domination was practised on the basis of religion and political ideology. South Sudanese were marginalized as a unit because the Northern elites wanted to assimilate them into Arab and Islamic culture. Within the north, there was some sort of power-sharing among the tribes of Shaygia, Jaaliyeen, Danagalla, etc. Political participation in the government was not dictated by one tribal affiliation but by whether one was a member of a sectarian party or Muslim brotherhood.
    It would be practically impossible for Dinka elite to brutally dominate other ethnic groups in a country whose independence was achieved via a revolution. Dinka elite cannot institutionalize ethnic domination in post-independent South Sudan without facing a military uprising similar to Dr Riek Macher Rebellion. The current formation of various rebel movements in the country is a symptom of rejection of the ethnic domination being imposed from the top. Late Lt. Gen. George Athor Deng admitted in an interview in March 2011, “There is no equality between Dinkas and non-Dinkas in the government of South Sudan”. He further noted that most institutions of the government of South Sudan are built on tribal dominations and there is no equality and equity between various ethnic groups that would take place without regime change in Juba.
    The politics of domination the Dinka elite pursue in South Sudan for the control of economic and political power is the main source of incessant conflicts among ethnic groups in the country.
    The side effect of ethnic domination in Africa is that civil wars resulting from ethnic tensions and conflicts usually plunge nations and countries into economic mess. For instance, ethnic violence in Nigeria’s Niger Delta area has partially paralyzed economic exploration of crude oil in that state. The ethnic tension between the ljaws, the Itshekiris, and the Urhobos has seriously affected the business of oil companies located in that area. In the process, economic setbacks are usually experienced. No sane person could argue that economic development will take place in Jonglei, Upper Nile, Unity states which are infested with rebel Movements fighting to topple the corrupt regime in Juba. The cause of all conflict in South Sudan is not North Sudan as pathological Dinka elite would want the world to believe but the policy of ethnic domination which has become the manifesto of the ruling clique.
