April 1, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — A Group of Experts comprises of South Sudanese, Academicians and International Activists have disclosed to hold a panel discussion on current South Sudan’s crisis. “Its Root Cause and Approach for Resolution would dominate the discussion.” Nhial Chuol Tut, one of the organizers said online from Washington, DC.

The event will take place on Wednesday, Apr 8 2015 from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at American University, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20016 SIS, Abramson Family Founder’s Room.

The organizer said that the focus discussion would penetrate and exhaust the burning points that amount to root cause with serious brainstorming. The discussion will also witness some well-known and recognized South Sudanese tough Activists and former politicians with join presentation from International Activists.

The speakers will include: Hon. Sophia Pal Gai – Former Member of South Sudan’s Parliament, Hon. Agnes Nyoka – Former Member of South Sudan’s Parliament and Activist, Dr. Joseph Deng Malual – Social Worker for South Sudan’s “Lost Boys”, Omer Ismail – Senior Policy Advisor at Enough Project while Meghan Stewart – Vice President of Public International Law & Policy Group will moderate the event.

The report published on Nyamilepedia on March 31, 2015 quoted that, a list of retired senior military leaders, mostly former major and brigadier generals of U.S army, including the former Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Henry Shelton, call on president Obama, Ambassador Rice and Secretary John Kerry to step up their efforts to impose sanctions and arms embargo on South Sudan.

Meanwhile, US President Obama stated in an executive order seen by medias that he is determining to ensure safety in South Sudan. “In accordance with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13664 of April 3, 2014, with respect to South Sudan is to continue in effect beyond April 3, 2015.” Barrack said in his statement.

Since December 2013, South Sudan’s conflict has forcefully displaced nearly 2 million of its population,killed more than 20,000 lives and left more than four millions people in need of humanitarian assistance.  Efforts by the regional body, IGAD, to end the civil war or reduce its impacts have failed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The highly awaited event will deliberately pin point the dangers presented by the warring factions on innocent civilians, root causes of the conflict and their resolutions that would ensure a peaceful settlement to the conflict.

The American University and Creative Peace Initiatives are jointly organizing the event in Washington, DC. For more updates on the events, stay alert on Nyamilepedia!

    For South Sudanese people, God knows, the Nuers love of throw tantrums like babies and armed rebellions must have to be tackled head-on. Enough is enough with the Nuers bullshits in South Sudan, not every time the Nuers’ Riek Machar sociopath would always be allowed to get away with coups in South Sudan.

    A line has been drawn in the sand though, the Nuers must forsake their Riek Machar and bring in another Nuers’ elder and the a sane Nuer that will work with the South Sudanese people, but the Nuers’ Riek Machar sociopath and their corporate America’s puppet, Nada ( BIG NO). There are many well respected Nuers in South Sudan and in the current government anyway, and if the Nuers do not want them as they often called them, the Dinka/Jaang slaves; then the Nuers can continue to fight on until they remove their so-called Dinkas in power and the Nuers can then install in their Riek Machar to rule the South Sudanese people as promised by their Ngungdeng. But l doubt that is going to happen in South Sudan as long as there are Dinkas.

    The Nuers want the root causes of the current crises, but they know it better than everybody else—-the Nuers attempted and then went on to wage a tribal armed rebellion. The Nuers think they are very smarter these days, but they are fooling themselves.

    On the night of the 15/12/2013, where the alleged coup began in the two army barracks in Juba, Riek Machar, his wife, Alfred Lado Gore, Taban Deng Gai and several other Riek Machar’s Nuer lieutenants moved of Juba at the dead of the night. The only odd one out was amongst those Riek Machar and the Nuers escapees was ‘Alfred Lado Gore’, from Equatoria.

    Why did Riek Machar and all other Nuers ran away from Juba if they didn’t have anything to do with the 15/12/2013? Okay, Riek Machar and other Nuers may have had some suspicions that the Dinkas wanted to kill them, then why did an Equatorian, Alfred Lado Gore join the Nuers? Did Alfred Lado Gore had a tip-off that the Dinkas want to Kill him on the 15/12/2013 with the Nuers as well?

    Again, if Riek Machar considered his life and his family lives to be in danger, he would have just moved to any foreign embassy in Juba—-embassies are always considered as foreign entities and called for calm on the following morning, on the 16/12/2013. Riek Machar failed to do that as a South Sudanese elder and as a Nuer elder as well. Instead, he went to his designated assembly point and called for Salva Kiir to * step down/resign*, that Salva Kiir has lost legitimacy to govern South Sudan and that he (Riek Machar), is the leader of the Nuers’ tribal armed rebellion!

    Came, the January 2014, Riek Machar named his movement as a resistant movement and why it is still called an SPLM/A-IO today, is only but a corporate America intrigue and Riek Macher’s Nuer’s supporters! Fair enough, if Riek Machar went to any embassy in Juba and asked for calm the next morning, then the Nuers’ claimed, that they were targeted in Juba ony because they were Nuers would have held water, but that was not the case; Riek Machar knows better what he is telling the Nuers and the Nuers should look their Riek Machar sociopath in the in eye and ask him (Riek Machar) to tell them the truth.

    The Nuers often claimed, that Salva Kiir’s body guards were the ones that killed the Nuers in Juba and they often say, that president Kiir’s body guards are from Bhar el Gazelles. If that is case, then why did Riek Machar went and start his revenged killings in Bor, Akoba, Malakal and Bentiu? And not in Warrap where president Salva Kiir hails from?

    Nuers, be very very careful.

      Ya Ghol Chot,

      Have you just woken up today to realise ‘Corporate American Intrigue’ in South Sudanese affairs? When SPLM hobnobbed with Ameriacns during the bitter struggle for help and the latter granted the assistant, did it occur to you that such assistances did not have strings attached to them?

      Now swallow the bitter pills of Big Sam and see how you can vomit them and disentangle yourself from the Corporate American Intrigue.

      FYI, Museveni’s Uganda, Kiirs closest ally, is deeply immersed in the American intrigue you have alluded to.
