No Coup In Juba – South Sudan Ambassador to The United States!

March 17, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — A new South Sudan Ambassador to the United State, Amb. Garang Diing Akuong, narrates the events that led to South Sudan crisis in December, 2013.

Through his elaboration, Amb. Garang, clarifies that the conflict that broke out in South Sudan in December 2013 was a reaction from the president to critical voices who criticized his leadership, and demanded that he should step down from power because he is a dictator and a failure.

According to the newly appointed ambassador, Dr. Riek Machar, and the eleven politicians, who were arrested and accused of having staged a coup in December, 2013, met in presidency in March 2013 to demand that Salva Kiir must step down.

“We know what happened in the time leading to the crisis, aaaah, Dr. Machar would recall that, aaaaah, in Mash [March] 2013, he and group 11 call for a meeting in the presidency where they call the president, he himself was there, Pagan was there, Deng Alor was there and they call for the president to step down” Amb. Garang responded to Dr. Machar on VOA.

“That was in Mash [March] 2013, then, in that meeting they call the president to step down and each one of them [group 11] expressed his desire to lead the South. The president told them that he didn’t have any problem but let’s us go back to our institutions, which are the SPLM congress and the people of South Sudan. That was the meeting of Mash” Garang explains the genesis of South Sudan crisis.

Garang also referred to Dr. Machar’s July interview, published by Reuters, as a critical piece with enough evident that president Salva Kiir was unfairly criticized and pressured to step down from power.

“Then in December, in December when the president was in France. Himself and others went to SPLM headquarters and called the president by all names, he is a dictator, he is a failure and all these” the alarmed ambassador continued.

According to Amb. Garang, any leader in the shoes of Salva Kiir should have acted to a protruding political climax as Salva Kiir did in mid December 2013.

“What do any body expect from a leader to do. So Dr. Riek cannot claim he is innocent when he has been building up for the climax of 2015 [2013] ”

According to John Tanza Mabusu,Host and Managing Editor of VOA’s South Sudan In Focus, South Sudan has been postponing issues for a long time and such issues were not handled the right way after the independent.

“When the people of south Sudan were fighting the long war with Khartoum, of course, there were a lot of things that were swept under the carpet, postponed, if you like. They would say let us finish with our common enemy first, then we will come to address these issues. And these issues were prolong for a quiet a long time and that is why it erupted.” Tanza said.

Tanza believes that South Sudan has no independent but just weak institutions that are compromised by the leading elites.

The managing editor of VOA’s focus on South Sudan reiterates that the politicians and civilians are left vulnerable due to lack of institutions, and only look up to their social organizations or tribes for protection and safety.

“But the courts in South Sudan are compromised. A lots of analysts are saying the judiciary is partisan,so where do you go, which court do you go to?… So in the absence of a system, people take refuge in their community for protection” Tanza stresses.

The host, Dr Shaka Ssali, reiterates that many people believes that Salva Kiir government has not accomplished anything but institutionalized corruption and impunity.

“In fact some observers have gone to extend of saying that the only thing that the government in Juba has accomplished so far is basically institutionalizing corruption and impunity” Dr. Shaka strongly emphasized.

Dr. Riek Machar emphasizes that the March 5th dateline was not achieved because Salva Kiir government did not agree to the quest of accountability, federalism and security arrangements.

    If there was never a coup in Juba ,why did Riek declare himself a rebel leader when interviewed on BBC on the 17/12/2013?. Stop lying you are a betrayer.

      The rebellion was to arrest any more massacres the government was going wild on civilians and a war had to be declared on the government by the willings. We are not having a president that massacre 20 thousands of it citizens in less than a week. This alone demand alone if not accepted there will never be such a thing called South Sudan. South Sudan could be the best or the worst country in the world but when this happens the president must and will step down and be judge as he is not above the law. How many did he(Kiir) send to their graves because of some petty crime or for even speaking up in disagreement to his failed policies, I believe many so why not him having to face the same fate when he(Kiir) murder the citizens of South Sudan.

      Ater & AGumut listen if there is no coup no right for Salva Kiir and his group, if there is coup staged by Riek Machar we have no blame for the result of action.
      My standard is the death of Civilians who did not even know the way ofSalva Kiir’s Office & the Date of meeting of Salva Kiir & Dr.Riek Machar that’ son 15 Dec.2013
      THE ROLES OF PRESIDENT: is protecting his Citizens from all sorts of Challenge instead to treat them as the enemy.
      Did foreign force (Uganda) involved in South Sudan crisis brought by Kiir to Country?
      Why President Kiir decided to kill his citizen for only Single Riek Machar?
      Please seeking the revenge brings more hatred. What Kiir revenged 1991 If yes, does it brought peace now ?.
      1991 We could not even librated Sudan as whole as Dr. Garang’s wish, our only chance is self determination as we are separated with Khartoum Government and stand as Southern Sudanese we achieved this by Dr. Riek Machar who signed the Agreement With Khartoum Government 1rst and Dr. John Garang the 2nd for CPA then we have South Sudan today our Country without Arab Not a rebellion if you thought is rebellion is a stubbornness thinking of Dinka said they were born to Ruled others not to be rule.
      For Sure Nuer who are with you in your side now are not stand for you for government is only to get their food.
      The death of civilian destroyed the president power over all Southern Sudanese
      Do not put it in your mind that our President will be Salva Kiir Again
      Because it is undeniable issue to all us, people are usually die for the things that they did not knew if they knew that” X” is intent to kill them they escape from him very soon Kiir introduced himself to Nuer is their killer the wise men of Nuer couldn’t believed Salva Kiir that he will able to protect his citizen in his future power, only those of food money lovers are still confused you and see them as Nuer in Dinka group.
      Do not depend your side and speak as Dinka talk as man who may know the truth even though we will not be able to bring our people to our Ideas for our Country calamity.
      What do you know about Kiir will save our Country in future if he will be president?
      For me if this great loss of life took place in Country in Kiir’s power, Kiir will not afraid to lose other lives likewise I worry for future that let this not happen again. I think you don’t want our Country Generation to die for the sake of one man similar to me and you b/se Salva Kiir & Riek Machar are men like unto us.
      Let me know your future vision for our beloved Country Generation?

Think and Talk as wise as you can. you are now calling Ambassador a liar while you sound like supporting government, ridiculous this people has a problem in thinking they don’t want truth to be said. Ok, ask Kuol Manyang, James Hoth, Mac Paul and conclude your thinking. Where is dump minded man called Riek Koang and his boss Agumut, come and clarified what your Ambassador is saying. Yesterday you claim coup maybe that is the reason your boss came out to cancel what you said. Anyway let wait what your tribal leader Salvatory will say tomorrow. Every body fear sanction that is why they want to put it on Kiir a lone, if you belief that there were no coup why you side with illegitimate president?

    Amb Garang Ding,
    There is one thing I want you to answer for me. When a group of people come to the presidential guards headquarter, demand that they need their guns and they were not on duty and when those duty tell them that they couldn’t break the law by giving out guns to soldiers who were not on duty and the next thing you know is Cdr Lok Tang fired and killed his deputy on guard cde Akol. From there, fire exchange continued and the Nuer in Mangateen, 107, New site, Edencity and Kor William joined in to attack tiger headquarters and bill pam. What do you call that? If someone tries to take power by military means is not a coup, then what is it? Please help me, I am running out of English!

    I wonder when will the Ethnic Regime & Jaang Elders finally reward the former detainees for playing their role to perfection.

    Perhaps the former detainees also been duped and lied to by Juba regime’s puppet masters.

    Everything happens for a reason maybe this stage act backed fire because God is not about to let thugs continue torturing the people of South Sudan under any further due tyranny.

      Chuol,
      I was in that meeting of Dec 14. I have seen everything and I have witnessed everything. I am not like you who only hear things or see them on TV. Yes, Gen Salva didn’t greet Dr. Riek because the plan for war was known. We all knew that the war was coming…that was why Bishop Taban and the Muslim clergy who spoke advised against the continuation of the NLC meeting. How do you greet someone who is planning to kill you tomorrow? Yes, Salva said that 1991 will not repeat itself. Do you know what that meant? He didn’t want the people of south Sudan to kill themselves the way they did in 1991. For you, like many Dinkas, you misinterpret that to mean the Nuer must be killed this time and not Dinkas. That is wrong interpretation. Also, I will not be surprised to hear from you that when Aguil Machot sang the SPLA song that she was declaring war! Anyways, Chuol, those who know something will always speak the truth regardless of whether they are Nuer or Dinka. If you see the Africa Union leaked report, do you see how many Dinkas have told the truth? Can you not appreciate that level of nationalism from the SPLA proper? If we lead this nation by standing on tribal lines and not national lines, we will not have a country..Oh by the way, Dr Riek is a milking cow in bed, try him son of bitch!

    I would like to put it clear that all the 64 tribes are nationals of this beloved country called ,S.Sudan and therefore,to take it up yourselves(Nuer) that you are excommunicated is a total lie and so i would urge all of you to come back home and leave Riek in his mess, because he does not know what he is doing only exterminating people’s lives through his unpredictable ambition.We all read the characteristics of what instigates a coup and indeed it was a coup masterminded by Riek himself to usurp power only for the innocent civilians to become victims of his untamed quest for power ,if truth be told. Riek is willfully determined to rule this country in absence of her citizens because he does not regret his past & present actions from 1991 and now,but God chooses leaders and he will never rule this country .God’s case no appeal.
