Gen James Hoth, Gen Mach Paul Escaped and What is the Fate of Gen Pieng Deng in Juba
March 24, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — When you look at the ongoing humiliation, intimidation and forced migration of the former freedom of fighters by President Salva Kiir, one can relied that the vision, legacy and leadership developed for more than twenty two years by our charismatic leader late Dr. John Garang De Mabior to transform this country to become role model in Africa and world at large is being betrayed. After an in-depth investigation from the former freedom fighters, you can understand that the people who command successful battles and who won difficult battles during the liberation struggles are the same people who are today being marginalized, victimized and forced to exile by President Salva Kiir’s regime.
The humiliation of the former successful commanders who spent all their lives in the war fields fighting for the freedom of our country is not only an insult to them but to all South Sudanese who had known those freedom fighters for their great military victory against the enemy in order for Salva Kiir and his cohort to enjoy an independency of this Country. All of us know the great contribution made by Gen Dr Riek Machar, Gen Pagan Amum, Gen Deng Alor, Gen James Hoth, Gen Majak De got, Gen Pieng Deng, Gen Biar Ajang, Gen Gier Chuang, Gen Mach Paul, Gen Peter Gatdet, Gen James Koang, Gen Madut Biar, Gen Mabutu Mamuor and other Generals who risk their own lives to make us free and first class citizens in their own country. It is really heart breaking and shameful to see these people running away and live in exile as an asylum seekers because their comrade Salva Kiir primary mission is assassinate them for no good reasons.
The recent harsh speeches of President Salva Kiir and the direct threat against his own former die-heart supporters and comrades who fought alongside with him for nearly forty years has eroded the confident and trust among the former freedom fighters.
It was heart breaking and shameful to hear that Gen James Hoth and Gen Mach Paul escaped away from Juba out of fear for their dear life from their own former comrade who suffer and live hardship together to free this country and its people from marginalization and enslavement . The reality is that no one will be safe and secure as long as President Salva Kiir remains in the leadership of this young Nation and it become much clearer that much cracks and internal division is imminent under the poor system of President Kiir soon or later on.
The three Generals became victims of their recent bold position on the Juba Ethnic Cleansing against the Nuer innocent civilians by the President Private Bhar el gazal militias known as Mathiang Anyoor, Dut Ku Bany and Gelweng is real and those tribal militias were under direct command of Paul Malong Awan and overall supervision of the President Salva Kiir.
The genocidal regimes under President Kiir was trying doctored false allegations and fabricate lies to accused the former SPLM leaders of staging military coup as the pretext of committed genocide against the innocent citizens who have no political affiliations in Juba .
The recent life threatening speeches and warrant of arrest against the three Generals by the head of state become a real concerns not only to the 3 generals but also to all South Sudanese and peace lovers who are tired of daily killing of innocent citizens by the presidential guards and the regime security agents under direct command of Gen Paul Malong Awan.
The anticipating reactions will clearly show that, citizens are fate up due to failure of the regime to provide minimal security and lack of basic services to local citizens as result widespread of corruption and other forms malpractices by the regime security apparatus.
After receiving the news that Gen James Hoth and Gen Mach Paul successfully managed to escaped safely from Juba I felt little bit relieve given the facts that Gen James Hoth and Gen Mach Paul should could be soft target from the Mathiang Anyoor and Gelweng since no good protection for them in Juba.
I was also concern about their safety under Paul Malong who imposed himself to become general Chief of Staff and believe to long time enemy to Gen James Hoth and he could exploit the weak system in order to eliminate the accused generals.
I am personally very happy that Gen Mach Paul who is the most respected, honest and nationalist’s successfully managed to escape from the bloody hand of killer Kiir and Malong.
It is my personal believe that South Sudan need charismatic leaders like Gen Mach Paul and Gen Pieng Deng who put the interest of this country before their personal interests.
I also believe that with safe escape of Gen Mach Paul and Gen James Hoth, the people of South Sudan will try to rebuild the destroyed social fabric and work together with other visionary leaders to make South Sudan a better place for all.
I know South Sudan still have better hope and brighter future when people with love to this country and its people decide to change the current dark era of Salva Kiir and his loyalists at all cost.
My personal concerns is that what will be the fat of Gen Pieng Deng after his colleagues managed to escaped from the regime plan to eliminate them before the total collapsed of the Kiir regime.
The question what will be next plan of the two Generals to rescue their colleagues and the innocent South Sudanese who current living under harsh and inhumane condition due to poor leadership of Salva Kiir?
What is a best tool to reclaim the liberty and dignity of the people of South Sudan from deadly mafia of Salva Kiir? I hope with all former freedom fighters forced to exile. The answer should be down fall of Kiir regime at all means and at all cost. The victory against Kiir is certain
