November 19, 2017 (SSB) — A thank you note to all who stood with my father Gen. Paul Malong Awan in the last seven months

I am writing this note to acknowledge and thank all those who took a keen interest in the situation my father was in and stood with him until a resolution was reached. We as the family of Awan Anei are indebted to you, South Sudanese both inside the country and in the Diaspora for your solidarity.

To H.E. Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, the President of the Republic of South Sudan, I thank you deeply for demonstrating leadership in ending my father’s situation amicably.

To the Committee of Concerned Citizens led by the distinguished scholar and diplomat, Dr. Francis Mading Deng, I thank you for your concerted mediation efforts that led to the resolution of what could have easily been the unnecessary crisis at the time our country needs peace the most.

To South Sudanese inside the country, your fearless stand in support of my father’s rights despite constant provocation and intimidation won the day. For that, I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

To the leadership of Aweil Community Associations in Australia, the Arab Republic of Egypt, Canada, East Africa, United States of America and all South Sudanese communities wherever they may be, our friends. I thank you for the commitment you have shown towards the peaceful resolution of my father’s situation.

Without your unified voice reflected on various open letters you wrote to H.E. the President; the few ill-willed individuals would have manipulated the system to achieve their nefarious plans against my father.

To Mama Achok Bol and Lucy Ayak, while you are family members, I would like to put it on records that the work you did in informing the public about my father’s situation was commendable.

Without your diligence, the public would have remained in the dark about the unfolding situation. For this, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Now that everything has been resolved, let us turn a new page and give peace a chance in our country.

_ The End _

Anei Malong Awan.

  1. Truthhurt says:

    Capt. Mabior Garang once said that “Kiirdit strength is that people think he is stupid” and without any doubt Gen. Malong has certainly underestimate Gen. Kiir’s ability to destroy him … right from the very beginning of their feud therefore, it’s one of things he may try to come to term with for the rest of his life!

    Just look at the so called reconciliation between the two in which he was subsequently released from house detention was not in anyway a win/win resolution but politically calculated to serve one party’s interest and for that reason I would rather die in Juba as a hero if I were Gen. Malong. Because this was not a true & just reconciliation as many people may think, if it were then there should have been no restriction for his liberty in South Sudan and in particular, his hometown of Aweil but Kiirdit is not always a genuine peace maker he fooled the masses that he reconciled with Gen. Malong, yet restricted his movement within South Sudan.

    However, he gave him one way ticket to East Africa instead knowing that it will be a troublesome place for Gen. Malong to call home considering numerous international sanctions placed on him allegedly for war crimes committed before he was relieved as SPLA Chief of Staff during the current South Sudan’s civil war by Kiirdit orders!

    In conclusion, Gen. Malong may have not gone yet politically however, I have this Chinese proverb to end my comment and I quote: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me”.
