Jieeng Padang Community of North America: Open letter to the Government of the Republic of South Sudan (GOSS), SPLM-IG and SPLA-IO Under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny

•    Your Excellency, Cc: H. E. Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the Republic of South Sudan.

•    Your Excellency, Dr. Riek Machar Teny Cc: SPLA-IO and leadership.

•    Your Excellency concerned citizens of the Republic of South Sudan (ROSS).

 

Monday, January 28, 2019 (PW) — For the sake of peace signed by the R-ARCISS late last year, and the desire for the peaceful coexistence of the citizens in South Sudan, the Padang community is disappointed with the ongoing activities by the SPLM-IO in two sister counties. We the Jieeng Padang Community of North America demand for an immediate withdrawal of Johnson Olony’s SPLA-IO armed forces from Atar & Khorflus counties (formerly known as Pigicounty) of the Central Upper Nile State.

We are also calling for an immediate release of the Padang people of Atar and Khorfluscounties from being held hostages in Padum. We the Padang community across the board reject the idea of SPLA-IO forces being stationed in Jieeng Padang land, such as Atar, Khorflus, Baliet, Akoka, Maluth, Renk, Panriang, and Biemnom.

The Padang community condemns the illegal occupation and invasion of Padang land. It is a clear threat and an attempt to incite war. The Padang community is united more than ever before and is vigilant to any maneuver being engineered either by the ROSS or SPLA-IO and Johnson Olony against our community. (more…)

Telar Ring Deng, later South Sudan President Salva Kiir’s nominee to become the new justice minister, 21 June 2014

Monday, January 28, 2019 (PW) — We learned of the formation of the Eye of the Nation Committee under the January Declaration at Thongpiny, Maj. Gen. Rin Tueny Mabor’s Residential House. The Mission of this committee was formed to launch a Propaganda Machine to discredit Amb. Telar Ring Deng.

In August, 22nd 2018, when Amb. Telar Ring Deng returned to Juba after H.E. the President formed a Delegation headed by Hon. Tor Deng Mawien to meet him in Nairobi and ask him to return to Juba for more consultations as to why he resigned. On arrival to Juba, his political critics immediately started propagating against him on the social media and street politics. Their fear was that and it is still now, that Amb. Telar would diminish their chances of getting appointed to the limited government positions of the R-ARCISS. While Amb. Telar was away for one year, none of the people who are crying foul got appointed for reasons known best to them.

Now, we want to respond to the allegations and malicious propaganda contained therein by the self-appointed prefects of the Eye of the Nation Committee which unfortunately included Michael Mabor Rin, whom Amb. Telar Ring Deng educated up to Secondary school and had lived with him for 15 years, Mabor Rin Tueny who also cannot deny Amb. Telar Ring Deng Academic Credentials, what a betrayal? The wise men once said, do not bite the hands that feed you.
