August 11, 2014 (SSNA) — The recent killing of aid workers in Mabaan County is an act of evil and should not be tolerated. We Mabaan community in North America are alarm about the killing of aid workers in our county and condemning the government sponsored militia activities in a stronger term.
We are calling our people and local leaders to cooperate with investigation and to make sure those who committed these crimes should be brought to justice and held accountable for their wrong deeds. Targeting people based on their ethnicity in Mabaan land is an unacceptable attitude and should not be compromised. The government of Salva Kiir is known as killer, murder of its own people and we are advising Mabaan people not to associate themselves with this kind of satanic system.
Mabaan never been a militia and will not be a militia in any forms. So called Mabaan Defense Force is an evil work of the government of Juba to localize the war. The MDF are sponsored by Juba under assassination project planned by governor Simon Kun Pouch to get rid of anybody who supports SPLM in opposition including daughters and sons of Mabaan throughout Mabaan County.
We are blaming the government of Juba and the Upper Nile State governor Simon Kun Pouch successfully arming government militia to carry out random killing of innocent humanitarians’ workers in Mabaan land. We are calling our people to distance themselves from Kiir-Kun programs of blood shedding; they are killers and their plan is to divide people of South Sudan based on their ethnic lines to meet their selfish interest. South Sudan is not belong to any special tribe but it does belong to all of us and we must fight to save South Sudan from blood thirsty leaders.
Mabaan should know that Nuer is not their enemy but doctorial regime lead by Kiir and his agencies is the enemy of peace and development of South Sudan. Our people have been marginalized, killed in Adar and denied 2% of oil revenue constitutionally granted to Mabaan people. Why not we join our hand together with our freedom fighters to end dictatorial regime run by incompetent president Salva Kiir? Whoever kills people for unknown reason is a murder and should be held accountable.
Instability in Mabaan County is created by the governor of Upper Nile State Simon Kun Pouch. He became successfully of dividing Mabaan people and changing commissioners in every two months which is not happen anywhere else in South Sudan. Kun Pouch will not have good live in Nuer land if he continues to use other tribe’s militias to kill Nuer people. He will be remembered as killer governor in the history of upper Nile State.
