Chuei-Keer Buma of Bor County in Jonglei State Require Payam

Press release

December 13, 2014 (SSNA) — Bor district is a former administrative district in Jonglei State, South Sudan. The capital is known as Bortown, which had been divided into several districts, is now divided into counties and payams. Jonglei is a largest state in South Sudan nearly 11 counties in the country at large by side of the land and population. There are six tribes in Jonglei including Dinka Bor, Nuer-lou, Anyuak, Murle, Kachiepo, and Jie. It is a large state that doubling Unity State and Warrap State by side of the land.

In 2005 the Former Bor district was created three counties including Bor, Duk, and Twic during the preparation of independent of South Sudan. This is known as Greater Bor Community including 3 counties and 12 payams, which is a Greater Bor of Jonglei.

Twic County, Duk County, and Bor County known as Greater Bor in their own territory along the Nile River Bank from Horn of Chuei-Keer Buma to Horn of Chuei-Thon known as Duk-Padiet. The history of Greater Bor Community is known as Dinka-Bor is largely occupied the Nile territory of swam-land with no single hill in the area. Bor County itself has five Payams including Kolnyang Payam, Anyidi Payam, Makuach Payam, Baaidit Payam and Jalle Payam. Twic Countyhas five Payams including Lith Payam, Kongor Payam, NyuakPayam, Ajuong Payam, and PakeerPayam. Duk County has two Payams including Duk-Padiet and Duken known as Greater Bor Community in their living territory of Jonglei State. These counties and payams made up the Greater Bor Community that dominates the Jonglei State.

Within the Bor County there are two sections known as Gok and Athooc. The South of Bor County known as Gok including Kolnyang Payam, Anyidi Payam, and Makuach Payam. The North of Bor County known as Athooc including Baaidit Payam and Jalle Payam.

The Largest Payam in Jonglei State

Kolnyang is one of the largest payam within Jonglei State, evenly the whole South Sudan at large according referendum source of voting in 2011. Kolnyang is largely more overwhelmingly and congesting payam than other payams in South Sudan among 86-payams in entire nation. This is where some of the citizens were referring Kolnyang Payam should be county itself, rather than a payam in Bor territory. Kolnyang Payam is miss-represented in term of leaderships within the state of Jonglei. They are largely living from this distant from Jemeze-Town and until Malual- Chat near Bortown.

Kolnyang Payam is combination of two major branches of the communities known as (Juor-Hol and Juor-Mac) in Bor County. Juor-Hol is including Gualla, Adol, Jiir, Abang, and Thonye-ke Malual-Chat. Juor-Mac is including the sub-communities of (Chuei-Keer-Buma) Gol, Thonye-ke Pariak, Awan, Nyicak, Kuot, Pador, Mac-Ayil, Biong-ke-nai, and Nyara.

Chuei-Keer Buma of Bor County

Chuei-Keer Buma is located in Horn of Bor South sharing the border with Mundri of Central Equatoria and until Goi near Pan-pandier village. The members of Chuei-Keer Buma within Kolnyang Payam are voice their communities and the leaders of Jonglei to have their own payam in Bor County because of their populations, which makeup payam if there is no Kolnyang County of Bor. The issue and concern is population of Kolnyany Payam in Bor County is more double other payams need two payams, so that the leaders can work closely to their local peoples. Juor-Mac known as Chuei-Keer Buma was includes to Kolnyang Kot during the SPLA-Movement of taxation, but Chuei-Keer Kot was stand alone in many years in Borland.

In June 2012 Chuei-Keer Buma was exceeded total of 19,450 populations during election of their village leaders in South Sudan. The representatives of Bor County were said that if any sub village reaches the total of 3,000-4,000 must be represented by two leaders. So, in 2012 the election was conducted by local representatives of Chuei-Keer Buma and their total of populations was reached of 19,450. Some of Bor citizens were describes Chuei-Keer-Buma is supposed to be payam since day one, as many people knows that Chuei-Keer is a Buma of high population.

Chuei-Keer Buma has sub villages along the Nile River Bank from Bang-Achurot, Malou, Anuet, Pan-wiel, Dotwong/Yolthar, Pariak, and Goi along the Nile Bank and outward to Chuei-Keer territory of their old town. Chuei-Keer Buma is sharing the border with Mundri of Central Equatoria marking the Jemeze-Town as the border between the Bor and Mundri people.

The people of Chuei-Keer Buma are kindly appeal to Governor of Jonglei and Bor Commissioner to uphill this case of Chuei-Keer Payam that will make a different and will help the local people to make their own development. It is easy for local people to meet with their own leaders, than largely combination of biggest payam.

Matter of Resources

Chuei-Keer-Buma is applying the doctrines of Jesus Christ as it said, "Give to Chuei-Keer Buma what belongs to Chuei-Keer-Buma, and give to others what belongs to other payams." this message is completely amazed to people who thinking about the resources inadequate in the state or counties. It is pointless to say that there are no enough resources, while resources should be distribute according to populations in the areas. Resources are not the issue to keep Chuei-Keer Buma to have their own independent payam in Bor County. Some of Bor citizens were assuming that if there are more counties and payams will cause inadequate of resources. It is totally wrong. Bor people were confined themselves rather than create more accessible of leadership will help the local people in their living territory, as a demand of Chuei-Keer Buma.

Chuei-Keer Buma along with Greater Bor community is asking the leaders of Jonglei and the communities to implement Kolyang with two payams. There are no resources that even reach to local people, while some proclaims about resources as problem. Chuei-Keer Buma ideal to have payam because of the side of the population in the area.

The people of Chuei-Keer Buma are appeal and request the Governor of Jonglei and Bor Commissioner, to uplift this case to make two payams that will make a different and will help the local people to make their own development.
