Correcting History: The names of 4 Martyrs who died on May 16th during the 1983 Bor Mutiny

By David Aoloch Bion, Bor, Jonglei state

Martyrs Day

Dr. John Garang, William Nyuon Bany and Salva Kiir, during the war of liberation

November 3, 2016 (SSB) —- The history of 105, the Battalion who mutinied in Bor in May 1983, had been presented or written selectively or falsely for the last 33 years. Some people are deliberately or unknowingly writing or saying that only one soldier, Maker Jool Deng, was killed on May 16th and one soldier was wounded, Major Kerubino Kuanyin Bol Deng.

This historical assertion is false because the fact of the matter is that four soldiers of 105 Battalion were killed on May 16th, 8 soldiers were wounded and 15 soldiers were captured by the Sudanese army. All the wounded were captured and taken to Bor hospital by the enemy. Among the wounded, four were later killed in the hospital for unknown reason.

The mutiny unfolded like this: In March 1983, an order was given from Khartoum that former Anya Anya forces were to be transferred to Shendi in the North. 105 defied this order. In April, Brig. Gen. Musaid Al-Nuer, the Brigade Commander in Malakal, flew to Malual-Chat Garrison in Bor with Captain Salva Kiir Mayardit, the intelligence officer, to reinstruct and reorder the transfer to the North.

The parade of the reordering of the transfer to the North by Brig. Musaid and Capt. Kiir almost turned violent when eight Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs), who assumed the role of ring leadership, heckled and attacked them verbally. The eight NCOs were Sergeant Major (SM) Reuben Thiong Tat, Corporal (CPL) Malith Lual Jok, Sergeant Major (SM) Yusif Keir, Lance Corporal (L/CPL) Mach Nok Rial, Sergeant (Sgt) Garang Ngang Abui, Corporal (CPL) Manyiel Kueth, Corporal (CPL) Manyang Agok Aliet, and Lance Corporal (L/CPL) Herjok Maguon Akuom.

September 5, 2016 (SSB) — Bor Community is loose association of the three counties of the former Bor District namely Bor county, Twic East County and Duk County. It is a loose association because Bor Community is united and cooperative at one level and conflictual at another level.  It is cooperative at elder’s level though some elders advocate unity in public but preach disunity and non-cooperation in private.

Bor Community is hypocritically united at elder’s level but is completely divided at youth level. There is no unity at youth level because of the name ‘’bor ‘’. The disagreement over the name ‘’bor’’ occurred in many places , it occurred in Renk , in Kampala ,Juba ,  USA  etc  .

Therefore, Bor Community should change it name to Jonglei Community. The name Bor should be relegated to the county level. The liberal minds should use ‘Jonglei ‘as unifying name at the state level and the conservative minds remain with Bor.

When Twic East County, Duk County and Bor County were created out of Bor proper in early 2000. The name bor came in question from Twic, Nyarweng and Hol who said, they were no longer Dinka Bor as it used to be but Dinka Twic, Dinka Nyarweng and Dinka Hol as per now.

August 29, 2016 (SSB) — UN Missions have used force , sometime  beyond self-defense , the trend has been for the UN to opt out operations likely to involve combat  and has allowed groups of states to act as proxies   ‘’  said  former UN Secretary General Koffi Annan introducing a reform of the UN Mission .

Today, UN seeks to undertake the Peace Enforcement in South Sudan. Peace Enforcement is to bring back peace by violence or  force.

The UN Security Council  passed  US-sponsored  resolution that  authorized  the IGAD  Regional Protection Force  under  UNMISS   in South Sudan , to use “all means necessary” in execution of their mandates..

The ‘’use all necessary means’’ is the code  name for the war between South Sudan and the UN proxies;  the use of violence against South Sudanese  ,  the  use of the so-called legitimate  force  against South Sudanese ,  the legitimate  killing of South Sudanese by the UN proxy- the  IGAD.

August 25, 2016 (SSB) —- The work of any good government is to enlarge the middle class in the pyramid of the society by downgrading the upper class and upgrading the lower class.  The government ensures that no citizen is left behind. This is in order to achieve a just society where there is no one go to bed hungry , where there is no beggar on the street except the mad , where there  are no barefoot citizens .

The society is constructed as a pyramid whereby the top is occupied by top class, the middle by the middle class and the bottom by the lower class. Who are the top, middle and lower classes in the pyramid of society?

August 20, 2016 (SSB) — Hurting stalemate is the situation in which neither sides seem to win but both sides are suffering. In fact, in the current conflict neither Dinka nor Nuer will win the war over the other. It is both Dinka and Nuer who are suffering. It is high time for both Dinka and Nuer to realize how they have been turned into tragic play being enjoyed by US, UN and IGAD.

United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) want South Sudan proper to be turned into the protection of civilians (PoC) camp by encouraging rebellion. UNMISS wants all South Sudanese to go the PoCs by aiding the rebellion.  How do UNMISS aid the rebellion?

UNMISS aides the rebellion by sponsoring small NGOs to collect anger, personal vendettas and frustration of individual in Juba and aggregate them as whole country public opinion to compel the world to take quick action against the government.

“There is absolutely no language that would support the allegation that there is any effort on behalf of the United States or any other member of the United Nations Security Council to try and return to colonialism or return to UN protectorate,” said United States Ambassador to South Sudan.

Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) Chairperson Festus Mogae visits Malakal.

August 15, 2016 (SSB) — Ambassador Phee was responding to demonstration of South Sudanese against US proposal of sending 4000 regional force into the country. In fact , Mrs. Phee is trying to spin doctoring her country image after the US  imperially overstep its mark in the internal affairs of South Sudan through UN , UN is new version of US or the Western Imperialism or  Colonialism .

Mrs. Phee, it is true that, there is no  language supporting the South Sudanese claims of the US colonially meddling in South Sudan affairs  directly but US is plotting  covertly  to overthrow the Government of South Sudan in ‘’covert operation’’  through coordination of the CIA under the smokescreen of the UN.

Well , Ambassador Phee , there is no language of return to colonialism or return to UN  protectorate , what about the language of regime change ? .There is a language of the regime change , that South Sudan are hearing being spoken at the UN . This regime change will be carried out the by CIA intelligence agents.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon meets with Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — United Nation has planned South Sudanese to kill themselves with Ethiopians and Kenyans in the proxy war. The Western or Whiteman bloc of United Nation has planned the other black Africans to kill the other black Africans in Regime change war in South Sudan.

Based on the UNMISS exaggerated report that South Sudan government has failed to provide security to its citizen, based on the sympathizers of SPLM/A IO like the former UN Chief in South Sudan Hilde Johnson who wasted her money in supporting Riek Machar to come in power but Riek eventually failed to overthrow the government., based on the lobbying of SPLM G-10  like Majak Agot and Pagan Amum to place South Sudan under the UN Trusteeship, the UN has finally decided to change the regime in Juba.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon meets with Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon

August 14, 2016 (SSB) — United Nation Secretary General Ban ki Moon has been failing to resolve a single conflict for last ten years. Ki Moon has achieved  nothing in Syria, Yemen, Libya and he leaves  UN soon . To cover up his failure at the UN he hastily wants to send troops to South Sudan, so this can go down in history as his only achievement at the UN.

United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki Mon is nothing a weak man who flexes his muscle against the women but fear the man. Ban Ki Mon is a man who confronts the weak and fears the strong. Ban Ki Mon is a dog who barks at hare but wags his tail at lion to flatter him.  Ban KI Moon is the man who pays much attention to minor issues and ignores the major one.

Dear Mr President,

August 11, 2016 (SSB) — We, the people of South Sudan want to bring to your attention the hegemony attitude in which the Prime Minister of Ethiopia and President of Kenya are handling South Sudan. South Sudan is not business of two men.

We, the citizens of South Sudan have suffered enough in the last three years of the civil war. The cause of the war has been  the power struggle within the SPLM party that divided itself into the Government and Opposition along the tribal or ethnic line.

The war was ended by the IGAD mediated peace talk. As the nature of the war was ethnic, it was resolved using the best way of resolving other ethnic conflicts around the World and that best way was power sharing. The power sharing government was formed in April this year. From there the government becomes  the coalition of the 64 tribes of South Sudan .

August 8, 2016 (SSB) — We, the citizens of South Sudan welcome the strategic decision by the Government to accept the deployment of  regional protection force, We also have the reservations and we set 3 preconditions for accepting the  deployment of  foreign forces on our soil .

The Constitution of South Sudan gives the government its duties as the government of the people and it also gives the citizens their duties as the citizens of the country who  make up the state.

As a duty of good citizens of any Republic is to defend the territorial integrity and state sovereignty of her  or his country from internal or external threat  or any act of aggression , we did that,  when we  demonstrated on the streets  rejecting  any foreign intervention or invasion .

August 4, 2016 (SSB) — Some two Months  or  so ago, the former SPLM/A-IO leader and former First Vice President went to pray in Emmanuel Jieng  Church  in Juba . He had a chance to greet the congregation.

There, people expected him to offer condolences to the aggrieved families of the deceased and to appealingly apologize for the consequences of 21 months war, instead, he defiantly and pitilessly made the Church a platform to give inciting or polarizing political speech ,  delivering his hypothetical side of the coin about the event of 15.Dec.2013, he landed, blaming his political opponents for the events that unfolded in 2013. Not necessarily, he too tried to partition the Churchgoers or congregation between him and his archrival by using parables and indirect kind of language.

August 1, 2016 (SSB) — There is much celebration of disappearing of former First Vice President Riek Machar Teny from Juba . There is also much celebration about the nomination of Gen Taban Deng Gai as the Chairman and Commander in Chief of SPLM /SPLA IO and his appointment to replace Riek Machar as the First Vice President according to the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ACRSS).

The celebrations would be short- lived unless otherwise Gen Taban does 3 precautionary measures to avoid Riek disrupting the whole peaceful political process, which is widely believed to move the country forward from political turmoil

Gen Taban Deng should not celebrate until October 2016 because Riek Machar is working around the clock to find his way out of the bushes around four states of Yei River, Amadi, Maridi and Ghudue. On the other hand , Riek’s  right hand men , who are James Dak , his spokesman , Mabior Garang  , Minister of Water , Peter Aduok , Minster for Hiher Education  are doing everything possible to get  him out of the bush.

From the disinterested point of view, Gen Taban Deng Gai is better alternative to Dr Riek Machar  for the  everlasting peace in South Sudan on the following 10 reasons

  1. Gen Taban Deng has clean record in the history of liberation struggle from 1983-2005 unlike Riek Machar who have had bad records for rebelling in 1991, 2013 and 2016 respectively.
  2. Gen Taban has no problem with anyone unlike Riek Machar who seem to have problem with everyone
  3. Gen Taban has no bad relationship with President Kiir, unlike Riek whose degree of hatred between Kiir and him is major concern. Here, we are not surest of who hate who the most, between the two.

July 25, 2016 (SSB) — Princeton  Lyman , former US envoy has proposed that South Sudan be administered by UN-AU for 10-15  years , because , he claimed that many people are killed , many are displaced .

But are these claims false or true? .  These claims are false because they are based on the reports  of two media houses, UN Miriya FM station in Juba , which always exaggerated situations on ground so that UN contracts should not be terminated .and news website calls Sudan Tribune which always concocted the  news  . Lyman, himself  ,  has not been to South Sudan from 2013 to 2016.

Lyman theorizes his vision of South Sudan in his house in US like Nazist leader Adolf Hitler theorized his vision of how he would conquer the world in his house in Germany  , fortunately , by then , the world was innocent and  it defeated Hitler with  his Nazism .

Therefore,  South Sudan is one of the weakest country in the world , but because  of its innocence  , it will defeat any act of aggression like the one Nazist Lyman is talking about . South Sudanese are ready to sacrificed millions  to die in self-defense .
