Jieng’s Satan kingdom must be dismantled

April 13, 2017 (SSNA) — As very many of you may recall that in the early 80’s that I served as Press Secretary to then Governor of the Greater Upper Nile Region, Mr. Daniel Koat Mathews, better as D.K. Mathews.

Governor Mathews ( an engineer by training) asked me a few months ago if I would consider going back to South Sudan, to help in the rebuilding of the young nation. I respectfully told him that such a move would be the last thing I would do. The reasons: there’s no longer the nobility in government service under Kiir and JCE Satan’s Kingdom.

To confirm the fact, all I needed to do was to point to mass massacres of innocent Nuer men, children and women, not to mention the hatred that engulfs the young country in every corner under this brutal dictator and his flunkies, who are inciting the worse aspect of human conditions, those that make us small, weak, fearful and divided. Enacting Jieeng dominance over others, rather than celebrating our difference, cooperating and finding what we all have in common, is the most destructive way forward I can imagine.

That’s why this moment is our history fills one with sadness and despair as I truly believe that the Satan’s Kingdom would only continue to grow deeper and deeper in dividing our people. It’s unfortunate that they admonished the fact that they needed a broader partnership and coalition to show us a way to a future of hope. They have forsaken that those alliances are essential if South Sudan is to be a nation for all.

Now we live in an environment where Satan’s Kingdom refers to the Nuer as enemies and Equatorians as foreigners. That shows how divided we really are as a people and as a nation. Because of that uncivilized behavior, the future of South Sudan looks as bleak as its past, if not worse. We must all reject those toxic beliefs.

On the contrary, (as a young journalist) I grew up in a time when Dinka and Nuer were so fond of one another. For example, the late Mr. Peter Gatkouth Gual and Ustaz Bona Malwal were inseparable. And when I was assigned to cover the Ministry of Mining and Industry, Ustaz Bona treated me with all due respect and greeted me in a fluent Nuer language. ” Male Luk, he would say.”

That’s the South Sudan we cherish.

  • Jieng council of elders is an agent of the devil as they massacre millions of SSe everyday. Kiir created this gang of mass murder to instill fear and trepidation on many SS so as to plunder the nation’s resources willy nilly. SS have state arms such the executive, legislature and judiciary, hence Jieng inception is ill timed and puerile.
    Salva Kiir doctored the July 2016 turmoil in order to kill his long time foe, Machar.

  • The Jieng Council of Elders are innocent.
    The issues has a lot to do with SPLM as a party.

    You’re really analysis the current situations correctly, but what I want to assured is that this crook kingdom is not going to survive for long so many many communities get read of them and starting to take their rights and starting to revange against them am a one who witnessing what is going on so have a confidence the end is approaching for dinka and their followers. Be strong and continues disseminated the fact to the world.

  • Education with out wisdom is a waste.
