April 28, 2012 (SSNA) — For several years now, those of you who regularly read my political viewpoints know that when I write, I take my time to state the facts in a professional fashion as possible. Reasons being, I truly and really respect the readers’ intellect that they will differentiate between facts vs. fictions. More so, readers know who’s telling the truth, and who is actually fabricating it for personal goals.
Indeed, just before our glorious independence day, July 9th 2011, I spoke with a then Sudanese diplomat with a Nuer ethnic heritage background, concerning David de Chand. He told me: “ If you saw Dr. Nafia Ali Nafia, chances are, David won’t be far behind.” That’s the closest you can get to the NCP bigots!
Bemused? You bet! But how a forlorn, with little or no Arabic skills could come out of a blue to the helm of being the sweetheart darling golden boy of the insane Islamic National Front (INF), and ultimately climbing the ladder to earn the title of being one of the worst of all of the betrayers in the history of the nation of South Sudan?!!
Believe me, I do not want to dignify David’s nonsensical interview with the Sudan’s national TV by commenting on them. It was self evidence that the ‘ Satan’ was motivated by a deeply rooted greed for an easy money that he won’t have to wake up to go to work for like normal people in the real world do each and everyday, but the only effective way to deal with traders is to confront them.
That’s exactly why I’m whining about this saga that we are faced with. Firstly, it’s because I’m a South Sudanese, and a Nuer respectively. But what was disturbing the most was the fact that the perpetrator had used the word “ Nuer” in just about every sentence he had spoken in that tacky interview. More chilling to me: In a broken Arabic, he disgorged: “We are fighting to end the Dinka domination in South Sudan.”
Evidently, the purported professor, who holds a faked PhD must be an idiot, or simply does not even know how to count! Otherwise, he would have known that in fact, the current government in South is actually dominated by the Nuer, whose rights he claims to be fighting to protect.
Want more? The Defense Minister comes from his own backyard. And I did not even mention another milestone of the fact that the SPLA Chief of Staff, 1st Lt. General, James Hoth Mai, also comes from the Nuer Nation. Witch means that David and his skunk followers, are in reality fighting the very people that they are doggedly pretending to be liberating from the so-called “ Dinka domination.”
How asinine does it get
I have said this before and I’ll say it again: The Nuer around the world who stand by and do nothing while traders are hijacking our reputation, are in fact as guilty, in my opinion, as those of David de Chand and his ignorant gang, who are turning their guns against their own brothers and sisters.
Therefore, if you are a Nuer, this is your fight. It does not matter if you come from Nasir, Bentiue or Fangak. The traders are poisoning your name and reputation, and that should not be tolerated.
It’s high time you do something to regain our rightful place in South Sudan, and yes, around the global village.
