Feb 17, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Dinka is a tribe in South Sudan. Dinka and Nuer are twin tribes who have lived together in neighborhood for centuries with relatively similar economic, cultural and social aspect and values just like Amhara and Tigre in Ethiopia, Kikuyu and Meru in Kenya. The Dinka as a tribe represents a political Dinka, Religious Dinka, half-cast Dinka, Migrant Dinka, and lost Dinka. Any tribe is composed of politicians, God fearing if not most may be few, killers/ criminals, tribal/ discriminative, and innocents whose majority victims of any conflict making. And the same thing goes for Dinka community; they have all those kind of people.

Now, can we conclude that every Dinka is the problem in South Sudan? If yes, then are these Dinka sons and daughters who are in the SPLM/ SPLA under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar free from that category?


Who is an enemy?

Enemy includes: soul killer, physical killer, and colonizer, and slave master, oppressor in any sense of the term, haters, and ally / friend of the killer. An enemy can be you, family, friend, society, tribe, nation, race, sum of some or all, and outsider as well.

So, who is the enemy of Nuer?

Is enemy of Nuer different from the enemy of South Sudan?

THE IDEOLOGY (Jieng’eism)

This is political ideology which exists only in South Sudan set forth by some if not all Traditional and political leaders of Dinka tribe to dominantly rule over the Nuer and other tribes of South Sudan, and Dinka shall exist the cardinal man and be the first citizen in South Sudan, it claims.

Jieng’eism by Dinka killed Nuer, but not “all Dinka”. And Jieng’eism is bad not the Dinka as “blood”.

The post-independence period South Sudan’s civil war was triggered by the ideology “Jieng’eism” under its angel and chief ideologue Salva Kier Mayardit. Salva Kiir guided by the ideology thought himself to be good enemy to Nuer people but unfortunately ended up an enemy to; the nation, himself, and to his own generation, he Kiir along with his allies took arms against one tribe and killed over 20,000 Nuer people only in Juba in less than a week from December 15 to 20, 2013. And if we add those who were killed in hide-outs in Juba and those killed outside Juba and in different war fronts, then you will wonder whose soul resembled by Kiir between Hitler and Idi Amin. Someone would wonder whether President Kiir is happy while hosting tens of thousands of Nuer people majority women and children in UNMISS camps in Juba, Bentiu, Bor, and Malakal. Does he President Kiir really sleep at night?

Among those people killed were all types of people from Nuer tribe, some of whom were disarmed veterans, politicians very few of them, innocent adults, children, disables, even religious and faith-based leaders, Ethiopians who were good friends of Nuer in Juba, and few Dinka who had marks similar to Nuers’ on the forehead. Salva Kiir the president and his allies who killed and still killing are referred to as; Presidential guards, his private militia forces known as DOT-KU BANY and MATHIANG ANYOR from his tribe and majority from his own region, majority of Dinka who supported not just because he killed but simply because he is killing Nuer, Ugandan national army forces invited to back him up under some illegal benefits, South Sudan national forces which include some Nuer, Nuer money lover politicians with no heart of humanity, JEM of Darfurians, SPLA-north of Blue Nile region of Sudan, and some other hidden forces from East African countries under Ugandan military attire, Egyptians and others guided by dark star called Jieng’eism.

Enemy to Nuer turned out to be seen as enemy to the nation, meaning, Nuer and the nation have faced a disaster at one degree.

So we have to differentiate Dinka as a tribe, Enemy and the Ideology (Jieng’eism) which is purely driven by Dinka political and traditional leaders under Salva Kiir’s leadership.

The simple physics about this is that the Barbaric tremendous ideology “Jieng’eism” has to wither away and be replaced with a democratic system which will serve every South Sudanese with freedom, equality, justice and prosperity for all. And to do this successfully;

Salva Kiir must step down.

Salva Kiir must be dismissed from politics, totally.

Salva Kiir and his cohorts must be held responsible for the genocide and be sent to ICC.

    I don’t know why Dinka are most hated like Jews, Even most dangerous and few enemies like Nuer pack up walk out and they decided to live in UNMISS Camps in order to Spoil Dinka further for no reason. I don’t think that all people of Nuer are enemy,but they need to change.

      Nobody hates Dinka. You only brought shame to yourself by murdering innocent people of Nuer tribe and when Nuer response, you ran with your pants down to M7. So stop crying us a river.

    If Nuer were killed in Juba by Dinka tribesmen, then way are attacking people from other tribes and communities? This remains a puzzle that we seek to solve. Probably to drag other communities into the chaos!
    Other tribes never felt satisfied with Riak’s hopes for presidency and never as well liked Salva Kiir as the two hail from undemocratic societies.

    Tell me what other tribes did Nuer attacked. Shilluk are fighting alongside Kiir and started killing Nuer and Nuer responded in kind. The same to Maban. They were arms by Kiir to fight alongside his failed regime and attacked Nuer. What do you want Nuer to; stand arms folded and watch their children, women and elderly die? I don’t think so.

      Aliens had insulted your Nuer with your Federalism.Alienation told Nuer youth to go and kill Dinka and they accept that.

    Whats is the different between the so called Dinka and Nuer in terms of leadership?, these are the most corrupt people on this universe. Now Machar is talking of the Salva government of being corrupt,my question is what has Machar done when he was in power apart from owning the 2% of the oil in their personal account with his friend Deng Gai and what have they done to Unity state not even constructing a single School. Likewise the Dinka who are known of employing people from the “.University of Mura”.
    Finally did you Dinka and Nuer knows that the two leaders of doom who confuses you and created hatred among your selves are not purely your tribe?

    Your article is absolutely confusing just as your confused mind. To be exact, Nuer is the main ENEMY of Nuer not any other tribe. You people are addicted to rebellion and killing and Ironically, in the process Nuer will finish. No matter how many lies you try to justify your murderous quest for power; everyone see your blind claims for democracy. How can anyone be against Majority and claims to be fighting for democracy?, You are another confused, Phd holder in the making, like Riek Machar. Your Phds kill people. It is pathetic that you are trying to sound intellectual but actually sound primitive and fail miserably in your presentation.
