February 20th, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) — We, the Lou Nuer community in Kenya are surprised, shocked by the outraged defection of General Lul Ruai dated 18th February 2015 of which he claimed to be representing the interest of the entire Lou Nuer Community.
Contrary to his words, we want to assure the general public that his propaganda is not true and does not reflect our support either in Diaspora or in Greater Lou Nuer land. His defection is pure personal and does not hold any communal support.
We strongly condemned this selfish declaration made by self-made general who in our views was motivated by his lust for financial gain.
We also want to make it clear to all South Sudanese and the world at large that the mighty white Army does not support the selfish move by General Lul Ruai. Therefore, we want to reinstate the fact that his claims for primary support in Lou land are untrue and do not hold any fact.
This is to affirm that the three commissioners of Lou Nuer Counties, Chiefs of General Staffs, Major General Simon Gatwech Dual do not support his claims and shall thwart any attempt by any force or individual who might want to execute the content of this puppet-Defection.
In the spirit of our unwavering unity, we the entire population of Lou Nuer are still and shall continue to pay our allegiance to the leadership of SPLM/A under Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
Finally, we want to make it clear that Lou Nuer will not tolerate any absurd decision from individual community member that might eventually reward the genocidal dictatorial regime under Salva Kiir in Juba.
It should also be noted clearly that Gen. Lul had defected alone and shall continue to sail alone. Every person is entitled to personal opinion, but we wanted to assure the international community and the regional body that Lul Ruai’s personal decision wouldn’t have an impact on Lou Nuer Community and SPLM/A/IO in general.
Chairperson for Lou-Nuer Community in Kenya
I appreciated Lou Nuer Community in Kenya, Uganda, 3 commissioners of greater Akobo and around the world God will be with you and bring peace to all communities of South Sudan through true negotiation not between two persons.
Lou Nuer are very smartest people, great job! I don’t know how toappreciating you than thanks.
Am Kenyan Luo! We are a mix of Sudanese communities who have lived together and become a Single community…we had the Joka Jok..Jak Owiny.. Alur, Acholi, Lango, Teso, Padhola,Luhya,Suba,Kisii and formed a single language Dholuo..even with our individual languages we still recognise a common language, culture and identity. I pray that the Unity of the Luo Community may also be found in a new State of South Sudan. What can I do to see you Unite?????
