Respond to Jonglei State’s Deputy Governor Baba Medan’s Empty Threats

By Sirir Gabriel Yiei Rut

August 10, 2014 (SSNA) — According to Sudan Tribune today the deputy governor of South Sudan’s Jonglei state, Baba Medan, has vowed to mobilize forces against rebels should they fail to reach a peace deal with the government.

Addressing former child soldiers, popularly known as Red Army on Saturday, accused opposition forces led by former vice president Riek Machar of frustrating the ongoing talks mediated by the East African regional bloc (IGAD).

“Last time mobilization was made in South Sudan for youth to join South Sudan army to end rebellion, but Murle did not go. Only those in the army participated. But this time, if peace doesn’t come, you will see what Murle will do,” remarked the deputy governor.

“Even Riek Machar will say sorry, I didn’t want it this way. Riek Machar will leave Akobo, Uror, Nyirol, Ayod and those other places,” he added.

Medan claimed several volunteers were to assist pro-government forces in the fight against the rebels to end the almost eight month-long conflict.

“There are people in Pibor now, who are crying with their guns, they want to fight, but we are telling them to sit and wait. If peace doesn’t come, we will release them,” he said.

The deputy governor, however, urged members of the red army to serve as peace envoys.

“Be the ambassadors of peace and unity to our people in the country. Let your name red army be for peace [and] tell Riek Machar to accept peace,” he said.


The whole world knows that President Salva Kiir has failed the country and there is nothing to hide about that.

So a greedy and money addict Honorable like Baba Medan who is a good example of a disowned child that Murle has disowned three years ago because of working against his tribesmen, today got up and air nonsense words about capturing Lou Nuer lands. It is a deadly decision that has got a lot to do with good thinking and wise decision making.

We know that whatever Baba Medan is fabricating will eventually landed to unknown base where it will end up as empty barking given to Hyena by coward dog.

Our relationship with Murle community is very strong and healthy and somebody like this traitor called Baba Medan cannot ruin it just because He was influence to do it by Dinka regime.

We also Know that Baba Medan who claimed to mobilized Murle youths to attack Lou Nuer counties, is not an elder that can raise the Murle concerned in this matter. However, we also know that no one is behind his evil plans to creates chaos to push the whole community of ‘Golgoltin’(Pibor) and Greater ‘Boorchaar’ Lou Nuer back to those years of senseless conflict inflicted and designed by Dinka Bor under the leadership of Lt. Gen. Kuol Manyang Juuk. We are very aware that Dinka government is working day and night to push the Murle into this tribal war created by Salva Kiir Mayardit in 15/12/2013.

But we know that Murle community won’t puzzle again to immediately reject and called for this traitor to shut up and seal his lazy mouth. A bribe man and blood sucker like Baba Medan who lives to eat simply because of betraying his fellow tribes men cannot be allow to continue spoiled the image of a great community like Murle.

Baba Medan Knows that he is going to join his wife in the kitchen because Greater Pibor Area (GAA) is already born and there will be no room for betrayers like Him in the coming system, So he is forging so many ways that can bring David Yau Yau government to serious collapse by making fakes deals that can make David Yau Yau turn back to bush again.

Murle community should give a critical look to Baba Medan plans that fuel a war He himself will not join.

We want Murle community to remain calmed as they have already chosen to be neutral in the beginning, our problem with Salva Kiir is yet to be solve and it us to solve it.

Let a sleeping dog lie!
