April 4, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — It has been at least one year since the Juba massacre and the subsequent formation of a national resistant movement the SPLM/A in Opposition. The emergence of the SPLM/A in opposition in addition to the task shouldered to Dr. Riek Machar Teny as the chief executive of the movement although not [ SPLM/A in opposition ] anticipated by the people of South Sudan was a great historic move taken by the sons and daughters of South Sudan in respond to Salva Kiir’s rhetoric political wrangling.

Almost three months from now, sporadic circulation of propaganda purportedly aimed at confusing and establishing the movement and diverting away the attention of the people of South Sudan from sympathizing the movement gain momentum.

He who is lobbying to take over the leadership of the resistant movement from H.E Dr. Riek Machar is crossing a Red Line that he will not even anticipated to afford. Dr. Machar is a SYMBOL of national unity and solidarity that provides clean drinking water for the entire population of South Sudan and you must bear in mine that I am not saying the movement lack diehard patriots and intellectuals capable of leading the movement rather than Dr. Machar himself, however Dr. Riek Machar is a humble servant and a statesman that for one and many reasons reflect the unity and peaceful co-existence of the South Sudanese people at large and deserves to be the next president of this nation.

Under his leadership, the movement is overseeing a solid and strategic diplomatic relations compare to that rotten foreign relations being overseen by Salva Kiir Mayardiit in Juba, which is a bunch of anti-South Sudanese’s peaceful co-existence.

The South Sudanese, region and the international community must have realized by now that Dr. Riek Machar Teny has been the backbone of this nation, especially for the last ten years. Notwithstanding the fact that the SPLM/SPLA is strongly united despite that Dr. Machar is not providing any salary or superior weapons, the region and the international community is now siding with the defamed opposition (SPLM/SPLA-IO) instead of those corrupt and tribal pundits in Juba, who call themselves the legitimiate government of South Sudan.

Those who are overseeing an act of jealousy within the movement while people are busy exerting more efforts to defeat Salva Kiir’s standlinsm in a midst of chaos must rather leaves peacefully instead of committing setbacks in the struggle and I am very sure that the absence of Dr. Riek Machar Teny’s leadership in the movement is automatically a dramatic news to the movement that has an unlimited appetite of Dr. Machar’s style of leadership.

In conclusion, the leadership and the supporters of the movement must strongly condemn the online Sudantriune and Upper nile time, who have turned the enemy of freedom for circulating false news on April first as April fools. This April Fools’ day is intended for practical jokes and hoaxes that are subsequently explained within a day or two. This culture is foreign and must not be abused by the media to create unnecessary tension. In addition, the jokes and hoaxes must be logical and practical.

    Riek Machar is a failed individual who will never achieve any things? In case, I forgot what Nasir faction achieved in South Sudan? Some body need to tell me what credit he has to get.

        Deng,I don’t know what do you mean by calling Machar a fail leader, do you mean he is an only person who care about country and people of South Sudan? Are you calling him a fail because he excepted the previous reunion without demanding anything for his own benefits? He excepted a free reunion because he love this country. He doesn’t want to take the South Sudan issue as a hostage. Are you talking about 2002 agreement? Yes he excepted the reunion in order for South Sudanese to fight for one goal, but that doesn’t mean he dropped his vision and capability to unite this nation. I believe that those who are pointing figure at Dr. Machar would be on the top of his government and those who supporting him now would be at the bottom of his government. I know him very well, he is the man of all mankind. Peace Now!!

      Deng II,

      Dr. Riek Machar is not a failure, but visionary leader, founder of self-determination, and democratic and man of principle. Dr. Machar reversed the Secular United Sudan to self-determination and South Sudanese are enjoying Dr. Machar self-determination vision today. The same Dr. Machar who reversed the Secular United Sudan is going to neutralize the dictatorship tendency of Killer Kiir very soon. The same Dr. Machar is going to introduce federalism in South Sudan follow by genuine democratic principles that will treat everyone equal. South Sudan without Dr. Machar would never been a country.

        South Sudan without Dr.Machar will be prosper or better off. On this world, can u found any person try to get rid of his own people so that to be awarded with a independent? or self independent? If he (Riek) killed off Southerners, do u think Bashir can give him a place with no people on it? Sure it, it was good idea theoretically, but in practically, it was impossible to bear. Riek collaboration with Bashir buried his idea for good.

          Explain in layman’s terms what idea of Machar had been buried by Bashiir of N-Sudan due to Machar & Bashiir’s collaboration.

          Machar made alliance with Bashiir to make it difficult for Dr. Garang to:
          1) Be the chairman(dictator) of splm/a liberation war.
          2) Accept discussing the issue of self determination for the people of South Sudan base on popular consultations without intimidations.

          Machar succeeded and achieved the #2 intended goal above as you are now in an independent South Sudan. Unless you don’t value that.

          The same #2 above Bashiir accepted as one of Machar’s demands as per Bashiir and Machar collaboration.

          During the splm/a reunification followed by cpa:

          Dr Garang settled maintaining leadership and accepted self determination of Machar be discussed and it was.
          Bashiir also had no better choice but to agree to enter cpa knowing Machar’s earlier demand of Southerner’s self determination is due for a fair and a open discussion without earlier intimidation from Dr.Garang.

          Macahar succeeded so give him that.

    You emotionally wrote it. However, it is an amazing piece of warning to those disgruntled people not patient enough to withstanding odds and challenges.

    Machar is in the right spot. His political ideologies debates always wi s the race despite time and tides. He never prefer violence as a mean to solves debating issues otherwise he would have not sitback and fold his hands while salva kiir is arming his me to wipe an impossible single tribe fighting his tyranny. Machar is a great figure and any mistakes would flash back all into square one.

    Finally, stop listening to lies creates and creed translate by the enemies of peace. ignore them please.

    Dear brother Tor Madira Machier and all our Readers at this Nyamile.

    Remember in one Month ago, I had informed you that, the SPLA IO of former vice president Dr. Riek Machar Teny has divided in to three tiny factions movement and the rebels supporters were clearly disagrees with me. Please allow me to explain again, there is a group of former SPLA IO Spokesman Br, general Lul Ruai Koang, these tiny faction do belief that, the former vice president who turned rebel leader is using Nuer tribe for his own political problems and they would like to sees the war is ending sooner or they might be willing to fights against any rebels that supporting former vice president and the members of all Lou Nuers communities wants rebels to leave their areas and go to Unity State because of destruction from war. The second groups are those who believes strongly that, the Nasir movement has blocking Dinkas people to joins the second movement of former Nasir faction leader and those who sees themselves as they were not causing Nasir faction in 1991, are 1. former governor of Unity State Mr. Taban Deng Gai 2. Peter Gatdet Yaka,3 major general James Koang GatKouth, 4.Dr. David de Chand in Khartoum,and the lists can go long to hundred potential people who have strongly different opinions. Dr. David de Chand and Taban Deng Gai are looking to takes over leadership from Dr. Riek Machar either one of them.The third group is led by former vice president who turned rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny is consistency he is the leader of SPLA/SPLM IO and anyone attempted to do this will be treated like the way Salva Kiir Mayardit is treating rebellion.

    Mr. Tor Machier, the former vice president Dr. Riek Teny said, something very important during the Rumbek conference after signing the CPA in 2005, and quote, there is no smoking without fired and quote, I had decided to moved away from origin SPLA/SPLM  because of you Dr. John Garang and  for that reason, you gave promotion of the SPLA ranks same like Dinka Bor and Nuers are the majority  in al Nile region and many Dinkas leaders were supporting Dr. Riek's statement. You said, the April first article and the Upper Nile time Newspapers were all fools April again, there is no smoking my friend without fired according to former vice president his word, there is a seriously disagreement within SPLA IO themselves. Some of the rebels supporters are quitting now, because there is a widely bitterness going on right now in the rebellion but the press Secretary James Dak is hiding the reality on the ground there. The former governor of Unity State had been accusing his boss Dr. Riek Machar for failing to show good leadership inside South Sudan's government and also failing to set up a good  policy that, will not discriminating any none of Nuers in his movement. The former governor of Unity State has the sense to belief that, he will do better than his boss adding that, if the SPLA IO was under his leadership eventually,  he would have accepted the last round peace in Addis Ababa to signed off the deal.The former governor of Unity State is fearing the health of his boss and he said, if he died in leadership then, maybe his wife will think about taking leadership as you can see wife of late John Garang is dancing around between SPLM IO and the Juba's government and she is so desperate to pushed men away he said..
    The problem of major general Peter Gatdet Yaka is  a position  for  chief  of staff however, major general Peter Gatdet Yaka is a man who can not be trusted in any side either South Sudan's government nor SPLA IO of former vice president who turend rebel leader therefore, the rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar was fully aware about Peter Gatdet Yaka attitudes  and in addition to that, Mr. Peter Gatdet has no education only military experience and you can not be a chief of staff without knowing how to write and speak none Nuer Speaker. The problem of major general James Koang Gatkouth Chuol is family issue, because he was been accused to be fool by former vice president to follow him again  and not seeing his own future and his children's future. The problem of Dr. David de Chand, absolutely, is the man who is looking to take over leadership of former vice president or Taban Deng Gai both are so desperately indeed  and his notion was to take South Sudan back to united with Northern Sudan as one like before and he had been rejecting separation before referendum election and he was been caught up from media speaking against separation in Uganda but  put in mind,  these rumors are not all lies but they are  truth. Nuers people are known for bias even themselves and  the major general Peter Gatdet Yaka have been accused  by Lou Nuer particular, the  relatives of late deputy SPLA/SPLM  for killing William Nyoun Bany, also he was accused by others relatives within Unity State  for killing another Br, general Peter Bil during the Nasir movement and not forget, he is the one who killed founder of May16, Faction in Bor general Kerubino Kuanyin Bol. These things are factory and you can not deny if you hear someone is demanding to take over rebellion leadership from former vice president then, you must consider that, there is a bitterness going on now in SPLA IO. There was a tactics use by these people, during the last round peace talks, they were actually agrees with Dr. Riek Machar but when peace agreement failed then, they seem to run away saying, it was rebel leader who demanding too much but it was not their wishing and I think the former vice president understand now and this is why he is putting Dinka  Dr. Dhieu Mathok Diing in charge instead of Taban Deng Gai.

    Finally, you did mention that, the former vice president is the man for unity and the nation well, if he flew alone at that time like Dr. Lam Akol probably, I would agree with you but now I am just laughing at you, because it doesn’t make any sense to say, he is a man of unity and the nation need him when 30,000 thousand of Dinka Bor civilians were murders for his Nasir faction and the whole Bor communities were invaded in 1993. In this time, you got White army being killed in battlefield both Jonglei State, Upper Nile State and Unity State and he is the one who officially calling them to rejoins military operations and they were not trains to be fully soldiers. I don’t think both Salva Kiir Mayardit and Dr. Riek Machar Teny are good leaders and we don’t want them all and the nation do not need them neither. Please keep singing about hoping, the former vice president will lead South Sudan one day while, his health according to leak in South Africa is stunning and questionable leave about the messed he had created in two rebellions.

    DengII, you needs the achievement of 1991 Nasir Faction, very simple, it is proposal for independence which you are already enjoyed. Can you tell me the achievement of Torit Faction? Magol will keep dreaming of Dinka, Dhiew Mathok is Number 4 in diplomatic relation.

Our Charismatic leader Dr. Machar will not and never be replace or step a side as it was proposed by IGAD that both Kiir and Machar will not participate in Transition government’s leadership , this is not fair it is bias agenda , there is no reason to exclude Machar.

    Hahahahahaha, if your doom and destructive Dr. Riek Machar die today, does it mean that the resistant movement will die with him together? There are so many capable leaders within Nuer who could lead south Sudan to distiny, however brothers your Dr is leading you guys to nowhere but down the hill. Most of you will not realise the destructive your Dr has cause to you guys but in 10 to 20 years to come, all Nuer including blind and deaf people will know and understand how destructive and harmful your Dr was. I believe the publish news was true and Dr Riek has learnt to realise his mistake and that’s why he had decided to step down peacefully and silently.

      I do agree with you that there are hundredth of leaders capable of carrying the torch after Machar and a million that can do better than Kiir. In this case the people will democratically chosen Machar to lead the Oppositions and if and when Machar decide to call it quit then he will do so without pressures from interferences of haters or those who are hell bent on discouraging the Machar to continue with his aspiration of serving his country because that is his right to do so.

      The death of many thousands of people, properties and environmental damages that had occurred since will have affect for many years to come. What cause all that destruction is to blame and if one wish to locate the source of the destruction the leadership of the country is to blame and Machar was neither a government official at the time of nor was he a the leader of the rulling party and or the government. To be fair and clear Machar was a target of the destructions that had been planned by Kiir, Jaang elders, M7 and the private arm forces of Pual Malong and Kiir but fortunately he(Machar) survived the assassination attempt only to realized later that some cowards blame him out of personal envy without shame.

      I wonder what kind of a democratic country you wish to create when you attack the victims and appease the culprits and go as far as discouraging those who are determined to demonstrate to you how a democratic procession works by publically calling for reforms and publically declaring one’s intention to run for election.

      Would you cowards hailed Machar a great person if I GatNor take over the government by force tomorrow and killed every cockroach that loots and contradicts itself before the law of the land of South Sudan starting with Kiir, Museveni, and all the drunk elders. I bet you would run to Machar and say you want a democracy that GatNor is the worst person ever. And believe me I would make an example of every hypocrite I have a chance to get my hands on.

    There was no true on that publish news that you are talking about period. There is no designation from Dr. Machar till Federalism and democratic achieve in Republic of South Sudan. Without Dr. Machar as leader and there will be no peace in South Sudan. Dr. Machar does not need any money so that he just needs everyone in South Sudan be equally whether majority tribe or small tribe must be treating the same. In Republic of South Sudan will not and can not be dictatorship Nation under Dr. Machar’s watches and his allies. Any one among the leader of Rebels if he/she wants to return to Juba is free to go as ex- spokesman(Lul Ruai Koang)did,but to form his own Rebels with Nuer territories and he/she will not get it. If there are some enemies, to Nuer who wishes moment to divide that unwishes one.
