Subject: A rebuttal to General Kuol Dim’s presentation on (Heglig) Panthou dispute in SSTV, on April 26, 2012

The Ruweng Biemnom Community in Diaspora, refuted General Kuol Dem’s fabricated and deceptive information in SSTV that “Hegilig is a grassing land between Abyei, Panaruu and the Nuer”

May 1, 2012 (SSNA) — Making a preconception and inequitable presentation publicly while you were in the SPLA uniform is an indication of and signaled a wrong message to the Ruweng people in Biemnom that, Ngok generals and politicians are abusing the SPLA and Government of South Sudan’s Ministerial positions. Abyei has no border with Panrieng. Where did you take Biemnom in the East and North East of Abyei?  General kuol, do not abused the SPLA power if you want to involved in Ngok politicians’ plan who are obsess to annexed Ngol Biemnom to Abyei since Naivasha. SPLA is a back bone of South Sudan and it is a nucleus of which we see the legacy and souls of our fallen heroes.

Were Abyei politicians and generals fighting for purpose of grabbing a land from Biemnom County to your home town Abyei or were you fighting to change the injustice government in Khartoum? SPLA rank should not be politicized and should not be misused to annex the land of other Community who has no high ranking officers in the SPLA. Ruweng Biemnom participated in two Liberations struggles, Anya-Nya one and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army/M. Our sons lost their lives in many battle fields in all parts of South Sudan. We hope that SPLA should act differently than our politicians because SPLA is a unified Army whose vision and mission is only to defend South Sudanese citizens and the great oil rich land of the Natives Black Africans revered as a “Garden of Eden”

As a Community, we are obliged to respond to some Dinka Ngok’s internal political ambition to grab Ngol Biemnom areas. To assure South Sudanese and the world, (Heglig) is one of the areas within Tor Aliny between Biemnom and Panrieng. It located East of Biemnom County in Unity State. Tor Aliny included Aliny (Heglig) was not a grassing land, it is a native home of the Ruweng Dinka in Biemnom and Parieng. Distribution of population density in Ngol Biemnom before Arab pushed us back to South of Biemnom in 1970s to 1980s. North West of Ngol was in habited by Manteng, Thiony, Ngongcil; North East of Tor Aliny and Ngol areas was inhabited by Mijuan, Abang and Amaal section in central Ngol in Biemnom. Dinka Ngok have border with Biemnom in the West and North West, and Panrieng County located in North East of Biemnom County. The three sections of Dinka Ruweng bordering with Dinka Ngok in North West are: Thiony, Manteng and Ngongcil, these sections border with Dinka Ngok section called Ashaak.

We sent a message to President Salva Kiir Mayardit and to Vice President, Dr Riek Machar to advise Abyei boys to stick to their border which was demarcated in Hague. It is clear that, Abyei Generals and politicians were fighting the Arab for purposes of marginalizing the Ruweng Dinka in Unity State. Abyei politicians become steering wheels to the Government of South Sudan because the government gave them higher positions and use the government power to grab other Community’s land. Ngok politicians forgot that, those positions are the results of our collective sons and daughters of South Sudan who have sacrificed their lives. General Kuol Dim’s present in SSTV was not worthy to the Ruweng people because, he could have done that excused presentation before the Court of Arbitration.

Finally, we were expecting Dinka Ngok politicians to apologize to Dinka Ruweng in Unity State for false claimed of Ngol Biemnom areas from North West to North East, included some Panrieng areas in East of Biemnom County. The Government of South Sudan should be more vigilant to Abyei’s high ranking politicians who are grabbing the land from other State. The reluctant of South Sudan Government to advise Dinka Ngok politicians who are in power to stop claiming areas in other Counties fueled the current dispute areas. Abyei land grow bigger when there is fighting erupted between South Sudanese and Northerners, because it give them a room from those who claim their right from Abyei to wait until the war over.
