Tearz Ayuen and his Bor-kazal Community have been Bought with Three Ministerial Positions to Fight the Family of Dr. John Garang
By Daidit Maa
A certain Tearz Awuen has written a provocative article (Dear Rebecca Nyandeng Chol, Stop Killing Nuer People) attacking the wife of Dr. John Garang and her Twic community. This is not the first time, many Buor have been vomiting their dirty undigested, frog-meat at the feet of Madam Nyandeng.
Just the other day too, the same Buor were pointing accusing fingers at Duk County because of a certain individual called Simon Dau who defected to the rebels. Dau defected as an individual not as Duk community representative or appointee. But Tearz Awuen and his Bor community see a proof of Malual Ayom’s shameful declaration that “min Jalle onward, it is a rebel territory.”
Tearz Awuen thinks that all the politicians and youth of Twic East and Duk Counties “are just there, hanging –at pendular mode,” to join Riek Machar. Tearz Awuen has declared war on me. None should dare to blame me for responding in kind in self-defense. Everybody is entitled to defend his or her self in the face of uncalled-for aggression. I am here to wage that war on behalf of the affected communities.
Tearz Awuen will not be allowed to get cheap popularity at the expenses of Madam Rebecca Nyandeng, Twic East and Duk counties. His desperation for cheap popularity should be unequivocally challenged. He should channel his appetite for sycophants else where, not at the widow of Dr. John Garang.
Tearz Awuen should be exposed for what he is and what he represents. He is writing at the behest of hostile forces determine to tarnish the noble image of Dr. John Garang’s family, Twic East and Duk communities.
Tearz Awuen and his Bor community have continuously attack the family of Dr. John Garang. Tearz Awuen and his Bor community have repeatedly question and assault the honor of Twic East and Duk communities.
Tearz Awuen and his Bor community have been mercilessly attacking the integrity of Madam Nyandeng and Dr. Majak Agoot when they have nothing to do with Riek Machar’s rebellion or the proverbial failed coup.
Tearz Awuen, Makuei Lueth, Malual Ayom, Malaak Awuen and their Bor community are not happy that Dr. Majak Agoot Atem has come out alive from the “constitutional, democratic and legitimate” jail of their paymasters. The Bor community is yet to come to term with Makuei Lueth’s failure to have Majak Agoot “hanged by his neck” as Makuei had bragged to his Bor community.
Tearz Awuen and his Bor community are accusing Garang’s widow, Twic East and Duk counties of supporting Riek Machar’s rebellion. Gen. Dau Aturjong is not from our twin counties, he is from Aweil. Is Malong Awan a Nyagat in the language of Makuei? Is the Aweil community a rebel community in the words of Malual Ayom? Are the youth and honorable people of Malual-Giernyang hanging in the balance in the infamous words of Tearz Awuen?
I repeat again: are the great people of Aweil rebels because one individual among them called Gen. Dau Aturjong has joined Riek Machar and is publicly calling on his people to topple the government militarily?
If Makuei Lueth, Malual Ayom, Malaak Awuen and Tearz Awuen are damn scared to call them rebels, then why labeling Twic East and Duk counties “rebels” when they have no generals and youth fighting alongside the white army? Is it because Barkazeel are your paymasters? Is it all about the money Buor? Is it about the hands that feed you and the three ministerial positions?
Tearz Awuen and his Bor community are ingratiating themselves to the Bar-kazal ruling elite at the expenses of Twic East and Duk counties. Well, if Buor want to elope to the other side of the Nile where they think there is greener pasture, then we may as well called them out for what they have become by default: Bor-kazeel, that is, Bor ke Barkazeel.
Philip Thon Aleu said “I wish Tearz could be challenged on facts but not by taking the war-of-words to his village.” This is the same Philip Thon who was cheering on Makuei’s words that “they will be hanged by their necks” and then turned around to condemn those who were celebrating the release of their love ones from Makuei’s unilaterally imposed death sentences.
This is the same Philip Thon who thinks that it does not matter whether three or all the cabinet members come from his Bor County. He confessed that he has been going around villages convincing the illiterate villagers that it is not a problem if they are politically marginalized, dispossessed and disenfranchised.
Does Philip Thon know why we sacrificed our people for over 50 years fighting Khartoum government? Who will educate Philip Thon that it was because of political underrepresentation that we lost million of lives? Would Philip Thon still go around villages convincing the locals not to mind about their political marginalization if the three ministerial positions were given to Twic East and Duk Counties?
Philip Thon wants us to challenge Tearz Awuen and his Bor-kazal community on “facts”, but they are no facts to be challenged, only lies to be debunked. So let’s debunk them one by one.
Tearz Awuen deludes himself that Madam Nyandeng incited and mobilized the Nuer white army to wage war on the government. The implication is that the white army killed people in Bor and the government is killing the white army all because of Madam Nyandeng’s words. Tear Awuen is blaming Madam Nyandeng for all the killings done by the white army. Tearz Awuen is blaming Madam Nyandeng for all the death of the white army.
Tearz Awuen is saying that if Madam Nyandeng had not incited and mobilized the white army then the white army would not have killed anybody and the white army who are dying fighting the government forces would not have died. Lastly, Tearz Awuen acknowledged the targeted killing of innocent Nuer civilians in Juba but he is blaming Madam Nyandeng for stating the truth at the “wrong time”. On the planet of Tearz Awuen and his Buor community, Madam Nyandeng should have not said the truth because she is “a public figure” whose words are taken seriously by South Sudanese compare to others.
This is laughable. Tearz Awuen is saying that Madam Nyandeng should have lied for the sake of peace. Tell me Tearz Awuen, when is it a right time to condemn the heinous crime of murdering innocent men, women and children based on their ethnicity? When was it a right time to condemn the 1991 Duk-Twic-Bor Massacre? Which “public figure” from Duk-Twic-Bor communities did not condemn Riek Machar and the white army for massacring our innocent people? Tell me, when was it “a wrong time” to condemn the massacring of our people in 1991 and 2013 by the white army? How long did Bor-kazal wait to condemn Riek Machar in 1991 and 2013? Aren’t you ashamed of your hypocrisy?
Is it only right to immediately condemn the killing of our people but a crime for Madam Nyandeng to immediately condemn the merciless killing of Nuer civilians in Juba? Of course, you may be right, Dengtiel Awuen Kur and Hakim Aluong Kaang did not condemn the killing and raping of their mothers by the white army. Well, those Nyagat of Buor community were with Riek Machar and Nyandeng is not.
For your information, Madam Nyandeng has no blood on her hands unlike your paymasters in Bar-kazal and the rebels of Riek Machar. If her crime is her refusal to join in the wanton killing of South Sudanese as Kiir and Riek are doing, then so be it. There is no honor in killing ourselves in the name of Riek and Kiir. Malaak Awuen and Makuei Lueth on SSTV will never force Madam Nyandeng to take part in the killing of her own children.
Secondly, Tearz Awuen claimed that all the white army own radios and they listen to the BBC everyday. That is bullshit but let’s listen to the devil. So what exactly did Nyandeng say that mobilized them? As said by Amer, Nyandeng was not on air as a news anchor broadcasting what was happening in Juba that day. She was invited on BBC and then asked why the Nuer officers were not coming to her house. She responded: “Riek’s officers cannot come to my house because they say Nuer are being killed on the streets of Juba.” In other words, she was reporting what she was told because she was barricaded inside her house and was getting reports from the Nuer officers.
When asked by the London Post and other news networks to qualify her statement, that is when she said what Tearz Awuen selectively reported: “When they [Tigers] came in, they targeted massacring Nuer members. A lot of officials, administrators in Juba were killed. This is what literally happened.” The Nuer were targeted on the streets and Tearz Awuen is not disputing that fact, only the timing, as if there is a right time to shame the devil, and a wrong time to keep silent in the face of outrageous atrocities.
Is it true that the Nuer were being targeted on the street of Juba? Yes, read the report by the Human Rights Watch. Did they get that information from Madam Nyandeng? No, it was from the survivors. The survivors informed their relatives all over the world to report on the killing of their people by Gelbeny militia. Their people did what everyone would do under the same circumstances: they mobilized to revenge their dead fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands, cousins, nieces, grandfathers, grandmothers, friends and colleagues.
It is an insult to the Nuer community to think that they waited for Nyandeng’s words to retaliate on those who killed their relatives. Tell me Tearz Awuen: who incited and mobilized the Nuer in 1991? Was it your uncles Dengtiel Awuen and Hakim Aluong Kaang? Tell me Tearz Awuen: who was responsible for the death of our people and the death of the white army in 1991? Was it your uncles Dengtiel Awuen Kur and Hakim Aluong Kaang?
Tearz Awuen: do you still remember the chilling words of Dengtiel Ayuen Kur’s brother after the killing of their mother by the white army in 1991: “Akuma de Deng Ama ce cok tiem aka ce amada nok”, meaning the government of my brother Dengtiel has became so successful that it has even killed our mother. Which battalion of the white army is being commanded by Madam Nyandeng?
Had Tearz Awuen stopped there at criticizing Madam Nyandeng as a national figure, then our debate would have been civil and mature. Instead, Tearz Awuen betrayed his ulterior motives by delving into the community of Nyandeng accusing them of being rebels hanging in the balance, not sure to be with the government or the rebels. If Tearz Awuen could not spare the community of Madam Nyandeng and the politicians and youth of Twic East County, why would I spare his Bor-kazal community as well? He set the bar and I am simply dancing to his tune. He must enjoy it.
Tearz Awuen must know that it is not Madam Nyandeng that has lost three quarters of the country; it is “his” president that has lost support in every state except in Warrap, Lakes state and Bor County. Tearz Awuen must know that Madam Nyandeng is not fighting for the interests of Twic East and Duk Counties, but for the nation, including innocent Nuer and Dinka people.
Tearz Awuen and his Bor-kazal community have been bribed with three ministerial positions by Bar-kazeel to fight the family of Dr. John Garang. Tearz Awuen and his Bor-kazal community have been bought by Bar-kazeel to fight Dr. John Garang ‘s Twic East community and to spoil the good name of Duk County.
Tearz Awuen and his Bor-kazal community have been hired by the Bar-kazeel elites to fight the widow of Dr. John Garang. Bor-kazal have betrayed their kinsfolks in Twic East and Duk communities to make themselves palatable to the Bar-kazal ruling elite in Juba.
Jesus was betrayed by Judas Iscariot at the price of thirty shekels. He succeeded and Jesus was killed. Bor-kazal are actively in the process of betraying their own brothers and sisters in Twic East and Duk counties at the price of three ministerial posts. Bor-kazal will never succeed.
I am waiting to witness the barkazalization (circumcision) of Alier and Aguto and Majier and Awuen after they have eloped to Warrap. Will you migrate to Juba or Torit or Malakal or Wau or Renk when the power and money shift there or do you think it will always be in Warrap?
When will you man up and groom your own leaders like Hon. Abel Alier and Majier Ghai and Kuol Manyang among the Majak Agoot generations so that you may part ways with jealousy and “offshoring” of leadership and money from Barkazeel as Amer Mayen said? Get a good leader like Abel Alier and we shall support him. Don’t be jealous of Dr. Majak Agoot Atem and Madam Nyandeng if none exist among you. Just shut up, line up and support Madam Nyandeng and Dr. Majak Agoot for national leadership.
Makuei Lueth is a disgrace to the Greater Bor community. No one would have ever accused us of “Born to rule mentality” if talking shops like Makuei Lueth were the leaders we offer to the nation. There is no trace of Abel Alier, John Garang, Arok Thon, Majier Gai and Akuot Atem in the useless talking puppets of Makuei Lueth. He is a curse to our three counties.
Anyway, get your own leaders, get your own money. Stop pandering to Bar-kazeel, their greediness led to the second destruction of the historic city of Bor and the killing of our people by the white army.
Philip Thon Aleu, this “bone” of truth is self-evident, the chicken can crack it. Do you think there is any reason why these “dogs” cannot crack it if the chicken can? Please brother, wake up the sleeping dogs to crack the bone of truth.
