    Nuer Community of North America Calls upon Dr. Riek Gai Kok to Stop Harassing and interfering to Nuer Community

    For Immediate Release 12/10/2013

    Nuer Community of North America (NCNA)

    This is what Dr. Riek Gai Said Nuer community, he said, “The issue over NCP being in the government was not meant for another person but me Dr. Riek Gai… I was not anti – Garang, it was Riek Machar who said Garang MUST go first, when Riek rebelled in 1991, I was fighting alongside Garang… I was a member of SPLA – Torit negotiation team and left later for fears of being targeted because Riek was killing Dinka… Riek statement is very dangerous; it can slide the country into chaos, what brought the word chaos? Riek was trying to tear the country in 2010… but this time Riek must know that we are in different environment…”

    The Nuer Community of North America is calling upon Dr. Riek Gai Kok to stop harassing the Nuer community by making a division for political purposes and is calling up on Dr. Riek Gai Kok to stop interfering to Nuer Community’s affairs. On November 30, 2013, Dr Riek Gai Kok organizes a group of innocents Nuer community members who doesn’t know what they are doing and was led by people who their aim is to divide the community by organizing a convention that was rejected by the majority of the Nuer in the United States. However, this people with the hidden agendas which is known now, when on anyway by imposing the convention and election on Nuer community and brought a division within the Community.

    Dr. Riek Gai Kok as an individual has long traditions of dividing the Nuer Community, in 1999; it was alleged that Dr. Riek Gai Kok Killed Honorable. Hon Top just to get his post, that issue almost divided the Nuer Community. Now again, on December 8, 2013, Dr. Riek Gai Kok has once again come out very strongly against the entire Nuer Community by falsely accusing the entire Nuer community as if they are rallying behind Dr. Riek Machar. Every living animals in South Sudan knows that the political crisis in South Sudan has nothing to do with Nuer Community or any community for that matter.

    In the following day, December 9, 2013 Dr. Riek Gai was caught boarding a helicopter alongside him was Kuol Manyang and their route was to Akoba and then Waat Lou Nuer, and later to Uror County. Their mission was to try to mislead people there. However, the good people of Jonglei State saw this dangerous planned and reject Dr. Riek Gai Kok to Lou Nuer where he was trying to mobile the Lou Nuer Youths to fight Dr. Riek and his Groups including Alfred Lado and Rebecca Nyandeng Mabior.

    To Dr. Riek Gai Kok
    It is wrong to put the following statement that “The issue over NCP being in the government was not meant for another person but me Dr. Riek Gai… I was not anti – Garang, it was Riek Machar who said Garang MUST go first, when Riek rebelled in 1991, I was fighting alongside Garang… I was a member of SPLA – Torit negotiation team and left later for fears of being targeted because Riek was killing Dinka… Riek statement is very dangerous; it can slide the country into chaos, what brought the word chaos? Riek was trying to tear the country in 2010… but this time Riek must know that we are in different environment…” Dr. Riek Gai Kok

    We the Nuer community are offended when we saw you on SSTV accusing the entire community to score a political point from your master, namely Salva Kirr Mayardit. We the Nuer are tire of these kinds of rhetoric and me, me game to divide our community. It is our duty to join the fellas South Sudanese to choose our own leaders not those who put their stomach first and the rest after.
    We the Nuer community worldwide are united and we are watching people like you who are making these dangerous statement very closely. We therefore warned you to stay away from our community. If President Kirr buys your life, then, deal with him. We reject any political motivation against our community anymore and we care less about what you want to bring to us from Salva Kirr and therefore, we do not need you to interfere to our community affairs.

    The Nuer Community demand an apology from Dr. RieK Gai Kok because the issue of 1991 was a disagreement between Dr. Riek and Dr. Jogn Garang that has nothing to do with Nuer Community. And Nuer Community too did lost important people such as Gatwech Kuany who was Killed by the same Kuol Manyang that you thing a song of war together now in Juba, he died while serving alongside Dr. John Garang.

    Dear all Nuer around the world were disturbed by Riek Gai Kok‘s statement to bring up 1991 that he was the party of deal,

    What a feared mood press conference? When it comes to sincere national discourse to put things right, therefore, 1991 must take it places on spot without reservations. What a scared political tactics that Wani Igga, Kuol Manyang, Dr. Riek Gai and and Daniel Awet Akot had been maneuvered to mislead South Sudan poor mass of worse is coming? These gentlemen would have known that people are well-informed about 1991 event along with its shortfalls and benefits. Using it today as political tool makes no logical senses, and that they are just making a fool out of themselves.
    1991 is outdated case and that we are now in the era of transforming young nation from rebellion governing to stable stabilized nation where people must make governing decisions, and not a few power elites. They should have taken a fear out of this national discourse and placed it with political substances will lead our nation to peaceful futures., Riek Gai Kok was the one supplying guns to civilians in jonglei to kill dinkas, jikany Nuer and Murlee, and again giving guns to murlee to killed Dinkas and his own tribe Lou Nuer.
    If Dr. Riek Gai’s claims to have left the Torit faction because of individual personal security issue connected to killing of Dinka by Nasir faction, why those of John Kong Nyuon, James Hoth Mai, Koang Chuol Ranleay, and many Nuer officers in Torit Faction did not leave for the same reason? His he had special reason pertained to himself to be targeted alone by Dinka elites in Torit faction? The reasonable person must agree with me that, Dr. Riek Gai’s claims hold no water and that they are just libelous lies to please master to maintain his ministerial position in government. I am pity of dirty claims mastered by grown up people only to attain individual’s food security over sincere national discourse.

    Nobody must back down from fundamental democratic causes because of the scare tactics of 1991 event. They would have known that not everybody has seen 1991 as evil deeds as they would think. I hate it the most when people are misplaced the facts with libelous lies in wishing to mislead and covers up the real issues are up for sincere national discussions.
    Nuer assimilation is only problem because those who call themselves Nuer are the main problems right now and this need to be stopped if we need to go forward .Riek Gai he is dinka originally that is why he act stupidly like one year old child, Riek bear it in mind that you completely lost truth ever not only you as Riek this will affect your children ever. Leave Nuer alone and then go with kuol, please please, the war your waging will cause dozens and then first bullet will be on you. Every Nuer sons and daughters are watching your move.
    Nuer community worldwide.
