April 27, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Speaking during the Opposition’s leadership conference last week in Pagak, Maj. Gen. Peter Gatdet Yak [Jundi Iraq], reiterates in the strongest terms possible that the country will never be the same.
The notorious fierce fighter believes that the current conflict will be the last of its kind and never again shall South Sudan return to war.
General Gatdet, who is currently the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operation in SPLM/SPLA [in Opposition], pointed at his seated colleagues, mostly majors and brigadier generals, and said “these are the men who fought the war for this country”.
Gatdet believes that all the internal and external conflicts fought in the country for the last ten years under Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit were fought by none other than the generals who have now defected to the leadership of South Sudan’s former Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny; currently leading the rebellion.
“To say the truth, all the wars of Kiir were fought by none but these generals. There was never a single time that a military general stood up to fight Salva Kiir wars and left these generals seated.” Gatdet said.
“We have left none in Juba who can claim to have fought Kiir wars more than any of these generals” He stressed.
Gatdet, who was being translated from Nuer to English, assured his comrades that they are fighting the final war in the country.
“There is no other war that will be documented in this country by Kiir. This is our last war” said Mr. Gatdet Yak
Gatdet further reiterates that the current war has falsified many propaganda about the past liberation, citing generals like Kuol Manyang who claim to be superior than others warlords.
“During the war that we fought in Bor, they all came even Kuol Manyang, thinking that being a Minister of Defense he was above everyone but when he approached the front line it didn’t not take him very long to realize that he was nothing but just a regular man like any of us” Gatdet exclaimed.
The notorious general, trusted with vast military skills, has been regularly deployed at the most volatile parts of the country during and after the CPA such as Abyei, Upper Nile, and Jonglei states.
Gen. Gatdet was deployed in 2008 to retake Abyei from the Sudanese forces, which he did in less than seven days. After various assignments, Gatdet felt out with Salva Kiir government over deployments issues, tribalism and corruption in the government. He left the government and fought for more than a year until August 2011.
In response to a presidential amnesty in August 2011, Gatdet aboard a Jetlink plane to Juba to negotiate the terms of the agreement with Salva Kiir’s government but only to find himself in prison.
As a consequence, a rebel group that he founded in April 2011 called the South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA) that is currently allied to Salva Kiir government under Gen. Mathew Puljang, refused to integrate into South Sudan army and instead assigned Maj. Gen. James Gai Yoach as their new leader.
Gatdet was later release in early 2013 after spending more than one year in prison to lead the government forces in disarming the notorious white army, and the Yau-Yau-led COBRA rebellion in the most volatile parts of Jonglei State.
Fresh from Prison, Gatdet was assigned as a deputy commander of the 8th Division but later rise to lead the division.
Gatdet’s Latest Defection
At the onset of the conflict on December 19, 2013, Maj. Gen. Gatdet defected with majority of the troops of his division. He slain his deputy and declared a full scale war against the government of Salva Kiir.
For another four weeks, Gatdet’s 8th division, backed by thousands of white armies with insufficient light weapons, fought and defeated government battalions in a series of intense battles towards the national capital, Juba.
By January 18, 2014, General Gatdet forces had repulsed major encounters by thousands of government troops from Warrap, Lake, Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria states.
While battling the South Sudanese army, which constantly reinforced by boats, on land and in air; Gatdet’s ground forces were constantly bombarded by the Ugandan warplanes that used anything in their disposal to frustrate an advancing rebels’ troops towards Juba through Jameza.
Uganda was later accused by the United Nations of having used the internationally banned cluster bombs during the battles.
Shown on BBC footage, Gatdet used strategic guerrilla tactics to overwhelm his opponents. He deployed his forces in small units that were widely scattered but in constant communication across the bushes on Juba-Bor road.
More than three senior government generals and hundreds of soldiers were killed. Many vehicles and weapons were also destroyed.
Between January 11 to January 18, 2014, Uganda deployed a force believed to be an approximate of 24, 000 troops to recapture the town of Bor.
To study the strength of the emerging Ugandan troops as alleged, the Commander in Chief of SPLA-IO ordered Gen. Gatdet to progressively withdraw the forces from Bor town.
Three months later, Gen. Gatdet was transferred to Unity State at the beginning of April, 2014. Within less than two weeks, Gatdet, in collaboration with Maj. Gen. Koang Chuol Ranley, captured the capital, Bentiu, and slain hundreds of South Sudanese and Sudanese rebels in the town.
Government generals such as Carlo Kuol were captured alive while others were either wounded or killed instantly.
He was accused by UNMISS of having slain nearly 200 Darfur Muslims in a Mosque in Bentiu, a call for which he has been sanctioned for by the United States and European Union.
Gatdet, considered as a charismatic leader and a good mobilizer, has switched sides many times and fought for and against various rebels groups, Sudanese and South Sudanese government.

Ambushed in South Sudan (Full Length)
SPLA-Juba forces retreat from Bentiu, 5 May 2014
Cataract disease will soon finish off your eyes.You are never fighting for freedom of the entire S.Sudan but tribal Nuer Kingdom which is a mere daydreaming. Leave pagaak and come to either Bentiu or Malakal whether you go back a life this time.
Tribal rebellion will always fail and Riek has already failed terribly. continue staying in Addis and soon he ( Riek) will nationalize himself an Ethiopian because he is unwanted weed in South Sudan.
Tribal domination has ended as we know so blame your primitive tribal elders.
Shame on you by the name that pretend to be Nuer. If you are Nuer to add these two name Riek and Koang you can’t write its “Riek Koang” you can write it ” Riek Kong” This is the Nuer pronunciation. Come to front you will know Nuer. You just talk like women while you are protected by foreign troops. Why you bring Uganda if you really fighters. You know White Army well, you learn lesson from them. Since we fought with North when Dr. John Garang was our leader, he never think one day to bring foreign troop to fight with Arab. Shame on you to bring foreign to fight with civilian (White Army).
Oops! I thought the vast majority of you, food lovers and looters fought along side the Arab during the liberation war. Who was called as “Friendly” forces by the Arabs in South Sudan? Was it Dinka? or Nuer?
Ater and Riek Koang,
No matter how much you guys are trying it to block federalism and establishment of perfect democracy system to take root in South Sudan, Nuer will never ever accept colonization and re-colonization of South Sudanese.
Nuer did not make Secular United Sudan possible and they are not going to make dictatorship possible either in South Sudan. As long as Dr. Machar and Nuer are live and still live in South Sudan, dictatorship will not be allowed to take effect in South Sudan in which Nuer is a part.
Are you still fabricating and spreading your vicious lies here on this forum too? Why did Nuer and Riek Machar side with president Omar El Bashir if they don’t support dictatorship? Why did he (Riek) betray the SPLA/M movement in 1991, fled to Khartoum and allied his forces with Jalaba, accusing late Dr. John Garang of being a dictator and then later on returned to the SPLA/M like a prostitute?
Are you guys now fighting for Democracy Or Wealth and positions? If Democracy, then Why do you rape, loot, massacre innocent civilians and burn down properties? Even the SPLA/M that fought against the Arabs for our independence never did that for 21 years. Fools, you are just a bunch of idiots, liars, losers and looters. The prophet Ngundeng had the right to curse you people. FYI, South Sudan will not accommodate Riek Machar and General Paul Malong Awan, a national hero who was shot 9 times during our struggle for freedom.
Don’t blame Riek Machar for the mess that Silva Kirr brought into SouthSudan bcause what killing those Nuer kids will never be forgotten.
Be advised that your King Salva kill tells you incorrect info about Dr.Riek Machar. Salva kill becomes fearful of Dr. Riek Machar. His less education puts him at risk. He made decision which are useless because of his inferiority.
Well, What have you and Dr.Riek Machar accomplished so far as superiors and educated individuals in South Sudan? FYI, The inferior and illiterate, president Kiir Mayardit had fought for our liberty for more than 39 years until he raised our flag on July 9th, 2011. Is that not a great work, Mr. traitor and educated fool? I would be so ashamed to call Dr.Riek Machar, the traitor of 1991, a hero. Get lost Body with your vicious lies!
Dear My Nuer people and Fellow Readers
Here Is factual Information and proving point from an article of best mind and quality research Nationalist citizen:
” Dr Machar and Gadet war was diligently fought without critical assessment and lack of vision as well as exile strategies, to why war was fought and what need to achieve.
Our poor innocents Nuer were mislead unknowingly through deception that Nuer were killed in Juba in 15-16Dec2013 cooked without logically independent thinking to what caused their death, who are they that died, their names etc and no properly analysis and exploring of options available on how to achieve justice for those that they claimed to have died their love one.
Most of the times if not all, The community of Nuer were total confusion and misled by Dr Riek and Gadet using propaganda and deception styles in order to win sympathies and win heart and mind of desperate Nuer without with them realising that the war is about Riek Machar to negotiate himself back to his position as a vice or prime but no about a life loss in the first place.
To every South Sudanese knowledge’s and minds Riek Machar killed more innocents Nuer In this war than what he and we nuer claimed to have died in Juba in Dec 2013.”
My Nuer people please stop pretending like we care about ourselves but we must to learn how to fight war and win others for our side. Most of our young Nuer people are dead fighting stupid war for Riek and Taban and many other crooked self servicing leaders.
Heee heeee heee. Nuer tribe we need to see more far enough away from we are at now.
Achuchok and others who did’t see far beyond their hates toward Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon and his people Nuer people.
Naath/Nuer and Dinka/Jaang have lived side by side for thousand if not millions of years since the creation of the universe with off and on friendly fighting like people of the same family and that is why we manage to assimilated many of your people. But what the adapted son of Mayadit have done is beyond reasonable doubted that you can try to depend your crimes committed to our people but things will never be the same again in South Sudan.
Those who live on this side of the River Nile will be force to join those jaang in bhar el ghazel because we will not make it easy for them to live with us again to do the samething to our next generations.
Take this in your empty minds that the Nuer are fighting final war for south Sudan as we did it when we liberated you from all the dominants of colonialist and Arabisation that took some of jaang/slave Dinka up to now.
Just wait for the results of this war you be surprised indeed if you will reach the end of the it to learn that the very person you hated too much to death Dr. Riek Machar will be the one to advocated for you to be forgiven but Naath will resisted any attempted by any body to stopped us from doing what we want and that is to disciplined you so that this stupid act will not repeated itself again.
You are a pathetic liar. Whom did you liberate while you are still under the occupation or Colony of Ethiopia in Gambella? Whom did you liberate when you betrayed us in 1991 and allied your food looters with Jalaba? Well, as you know Dinka like to be kuormidiit. They moved to Nuer in search of leadership, therefore most of the Nuer Chiefs/leaders including Riek Machar are all Dinkas. Is that not pelpel Jaang, my friend?
In fact, you did not assimilate the Dinkas into Nuer but instead you made them your leaders. Riek Machar’s Forefathers are originally from Dinka but they migrated to Nuer and bought a spiritual name” Dhurgon”. There is a saying in Dinka that “Go to Nuer if you want to be a Chief”. The majority of the local Chiefs in Nuer land are the Dinkas who migrated to Nuer. And most of the generals and political leaders in Nuer are Dinka descendants. Do you call that an assimilation or Brain drainage?
Please stop making an empty threat on the social media. Is it the first time that Dinka and Nuer fought each other in our modern history? Are you having some memory loss? I thought we drove you to Gambella and Khartoum in 1991 without Ugandan troops. By the way, turn off your laptop, get the real gun, not the computer mouse and go chase away Gelbeny, TetWeng and Mathiang Anyor in your Backyards instead of barking here like a Dog. Why did Riek Machar flee to Addis Ababa? Is that not a work of Mathiang Anyor?
i think you are crying, you know what is going to happen to you on the last fight. make sure that giving nuer nickname is over, you call Nuer nyagat and not confirm, who confirmed the people?
Sir, are you really normal? The best way is keep your name
secret from the discussion.
It seems like you do not know what you are talking about. The only solution to this war is for Kiir and Uganda to leaved the power. otherwise you and Uganda bantus have no future
President Kiir will only leave when we slaughter Riek Machar or die of natural causes in Hotel in Addis Ababa. The death of Riek Machar will only be the solution to our war and animosity in South Sudan. That Devil (Riek) will never rule South Sudan whether by Ballots or Bullet?
You might have been still sleeping. Please get up and smell coffee. Shilluk freedom fighters have already taken Malakal and the war goes on in Bentiu. I think you are still in a dream land.
Mr stupid ater
forget about general Gatdet will have cataract disease, but very soon you will starve to death because very opposition will block the to Uganda and there will be no food for your regime. your Ideas are like childish idea and you said let those generals leave pagak they were in front line in Malakal and Bentiu and soon will see them in Juba where they will hang father kirr.
Hello Respective Readers,
Oooo My God! Really Gadet, nothing new and surprise here about Gadet.
Here’s the truths Gadet is a tool to be used to bring destruction and despair to the people of South Sudan. He knew only about himself.
Gadet is an oil field police guard that was used by North to buy weapons and killed our South Sudan’s people. Bashir called Gadet as easy tool to be used and easy to be driving any direction as long as you bribe him and satisfied his personal needs…Gadet will be good to go.
Gadet is a traitor and collaborator and back stabbers leader..He can not define real mission he Is fighting for. His true color is just mentioned above.
Gadet do not care very much about his followers: When Bortown airport and and center was captured by Juba Government Gadet ran for his own life and left behind thousand of dead white Army. As all things came into reality he started blaming othe generals for their terrible failure to maintain ground.
Here is the bottom line: Gadet will dying try and will be always destruction tools for the people of South Sudan.
Gadet is not a hero. Gadet is visionless like his cousins Riek and Taban and most of our Nuer people.
Haaa haaa ooh haaa. Gadet will never ever think to come back and capture Bortown or Juba. And other areas around. Gadet and All his craziness White Army learned a lesson of their life very very very well.
Good luck with your own primitive Mentalities of all times.
Stupid Monyjang stop misusing and abusing the word “Respective” that you know nothing of.
General Gatdet like many other serious South Sudanese men, When some see him coming they usually are not sure whether to disappear like the great Houdini and run or jump for joy.
Cowards Jur be aware, like Gadet said– South Sudan is not going to be the same ever again.
Are you talking about the coward and traitor Gatdet Yak, the former rebel leader who came to Juba under the presidential amnesty? Or Another Gatdet who descended recently from the Sky in Pagak? If it is the same Gatdet Yak, then you are wasting our precious time selling us a moran, coward and traitor. He said the same thing in the past but he came to Juba on his own initiative. So my friend, don’t be fooled by a fool.
All South Sudanese were rebels at one point including the illegitimate Kiir. They all too come to the peace table at some point. I am not buying whatever it is you are selling at the expenses of my people and there are 64+ tribes of them. With or without rebelling or joining the peace the rest at peace tables, there is one exception to the rules and that is they are all South Sudanese regardless of how you tried selling one derogatorily as a “rebel” and the other as whatever other crap you chose to perceive. Are you not wasting time trying to devalue what I am selling if that was the case? That false amnesty you should not even mention because it was false for you to boast about. The criminal that you are calling president has no more false amnesties to give because he will be at the very mercy of the 64+ tribes begging for amnesty. I really don’t know who is fooling who here or who is more less trying to hide their foolishness with distort beliefs. Traitors go back way back to anya-nya 1&2 and they always come back to follow the real objective which is the interest of the people of South Sudan, not some tribal vision but a vision for all. Reconsider how you approach me because I have no patience for idiots like you.
Is president Kiir’s tribe part of your 64 tribes? If so, then Riek Machar will never set foot in South Sudan soil except Pagak. Where was 64 tribes when Riek Machar’s headquarter was captured in Nasir in April, 2014? Riek Machar will never rule South Sudan as president whether by Ballots or Bullets…period. Keep lying on the social media, Fool.
Since you want to such a smart ass. I can give you the answer you want and that would be NO and there is not a damn thing you can do about it…that’s a true talk but that is not my final answer because I would be wrong in many ways.
Gatdet is a war criminal and traitor like most Nuer warlords who fought alongside NIF forces during the liberation war. He will not survive from his crimes this time round
Riek Kong et.al
You guys are making noise for nothing. This war has nothing to do with Riek Machar but was imposed on Nuers by your dictator Kiir. Keep crying for nothing in the Internet. We shall overcome your likes this year, God willing. Yes, Gatdet Yak has all the military skills to flush your greedy and corrupted asses out of Bentiu.
Gatdet, had struggled to escape like chicken birds in 2013 from Bor County to Akobo County . Which profile you are talking about, a man of doom??
(“We have left none in Juba who can claim to have fought Kiir wars more than any of these generals” He stressed.”)
President Kiir still having many generals to fight rebels.
It was John Garang false to give such a high RANKS to non educated people because they adore him. It is a nightmare when they are sack from military because there is no other positions for them in the country.
The most highly educated also have to display their ability of usefulness measured in his/her successes in order to climb the ranking ladder. The ranks comes from one’s talents in excelling in different areas of services. You even say they become a nightmare when they defect because they pose a greater threat due to their ability to use that talent against. A talent a ungrateful coward Jang like you would recognized only in the negative light as you just tried. I am here to rephrase what you tried to acknowledge but from a negative prospective.
Stop lying always, I think Nuers are hiding their crimes when they repeated the same killing and Dinka name.It is getting very very boring and primitive.
You think. well keep on thinking after all its just a stupid thought anyways.
Not quite pleased with this profile piece.. Its a bit too much on the negative.
ater & riakoangdit;
Your habitual internet blah blah ranting just reminds us of the famous English proverb that says quote:
” … If wishes were horses, beggars would ride …” – nothing else!
If your wishes had been bullets I believe SPLM-IO would have been disabled by now – but thank God your words are just sounds of empty drums making the most noise.
What a pair of “Empty Internet Jieng Warriors”. Empty Good Luck to both of you!
Barking day & nite about what is definitely beyond your sorry capacity.

He has to change his name to Cadet or Gremlin.
General Peter Gatdet Yak is a Liberator Like Koang Chuol Ranley who fight Salva and Museveni war without any order from above.
They used their common senses and make their own orders when our innocent citizens were killed in Juba like they were not South Sudanese citizens by cannibalise community of Jaang/slaves.
Gatdet, “Gat ram mi ran” have said the truth, South Sudan will never be the same again, the cannibalism community of dinka/jaang/slave of our fathers can talk and buy every body on the planet including UN staffs with our oil money but at the end we will defeat them looters/thugs.

We are trying to beat sense into your minds but you seem not to learn anything.You are the only firewood Riek uses to cook his presidential meals,you burn who cares.
Sorry you failed long time ago if that is your collective intention.
You hopelessly try to recreate Reality which is impossible.
Reality is one and conservative – U canNot make or destroy Reality. It just manifest itself.
Intentional subjugation & enslavement of highly intelligent beings is no longer legal in the today’s civilized new-world order.
The order/system that gave birth to independent S.Sudan will make sure that this existent reality is protected by hook or by crook.
You will soon eventually fail completely – we R in the middle of the Enlightenment Era, period.
No, if /but/why/… you name them excuses, …. none.
Peter Gatdete is an archeAngel from above to help implement the E.African chapter of the New World order of universal equal rights for all S. Sudan minority tribes.

I agree with you. Naath must end this tribal domination in the same way they ended slavery through self-determination. Nuer blood spilled out in Juba and in South Sudan’s bushes, roads, and rivers is yet will transform this dictatorial, tribal, nepotism, and corrupted regime into genuine democracy.
Nuer blood is like Jesus blood which freed men from sin. Jesus blood freed men from sin. Nuer blood freed South Sudanese from slavery through self-determination. The same Nuer blood which freed South Sudanese from slavery is going to freed South Sudanese again from dictatorship and tyranny regime of goofy and visionless Kiir.

all I can say is Amen to your above affirmations:
” … Naath must end this tribal domination in the same way they ended slavery through self-determination…”
i Absolutely Agree.
Why always repeating the same,we all aware of that blood spilled as you put it,but most of those who have been killed in Juba were bloody Coup Attempted Soldiers and that is it.
Authority is a evil,they will fed up about Nuers irrationalism and Nihilism,they will finish that by force if Nuers don’t shut their big mouths.
TIME TO SEND SALVA KIIR AND HIS BEGGERS PACKING
It is very great to hear what GENERAL PETER GATDET say regarding the government of Kiir!It has been almost a year and halve Since our innocent peoole were slaughtered by Kiir some were forced to eat the meat of others what kind of a government is that? Now if you are still under Kiir it’s time to think of your future , the future of the nation and your children! Come and join hand with our people and remove this failed government of KIIR! Lets be strong and stand together.
You Nuer are in the position of Hamas,very talkative while they are brutally Terrorists. Most of you where living in the North,that is why you adopt those talking,Northerners barking like Nuer.
We fought north for more than 50 years but today we have had know that we did not reach our destination,mj.gatdet is right to said that south sudan will never be the same again this will be the last movement.
Thank to freedom fighters,as soon as your commitment indure this county will shine forever.
This fighting is between Ney ti naath (People of People) Vs Jang (slaves). Who will challenge ram mi raan (Human of Human being) if he declare war? When ever camel move all dogs around barks but it keep on going. Go a head Jundi Irag no body will ever challenge you here in Juba. Those of Agumut, Riek Koang, Ater etc are just barking if i’m liar tell me the name of Dinka general who fought battle from government side since breaking of this war if not Nuer wew?
Don’t forget that Nyamilepedia is a Global Website,because the world is reading your comments and they exactly understand you. The High Ranks from you will not deserve justice or amnesty. Take care of yourself instead of HATRED.
Hello Gorwen Torbar, I dont think you know what it really means by the name Jeng or monyjang. It means the man of every people. Jang means every people or all of the people. If you called Jang slaves, it is just a matter of insulting Jang. Jang never have come slaves and will never become slaves. That was why majority of the army in the movement were Dinkas. If you saw that many of them died in the war, you cause war. Watch out your mouth by insulting all dinkas. I am a Nuer and I will never insult any tribe in South Sudan.I am just worrying of my people who are suffering. Stop insulting.
Whether being it the so called Riek Machar, Salva Kiir, Peter Gatdet and like are never peace lovers, lets behave as if they don’t exist because the sustainable peace they pronouncing is in them. It is only God who solely have the power to give us a true charismatic leader at his will
There is just a small piece of information my drear brothers and sisters in abroad into it. Do you believe that if this war was really fought between Dinka and Nuer would stay that long? Dinkas think that this war is a political and power struggle. But Nuer generals have taken it as a war between dinkas and nuers .About Uganda, don’t think that they are the one who stopped you from entering Juba. You would never dream of entering juba forever if even tapostas alone. You know very well how tough Dinkas are. By the time they accept your sense war, you will leave South Sudan and become refugees somewhere. I am hundred percent sure about. When you talk about educated people, A nuer from a cattle camp is better than Riek Machar. He never thought positive. he always thinks of him. Gatdet has a mind confusion, mad man. He never fought for freedom and the independence of South Sudan. So, I advise you to stop spreading lies and prolong war. My people are suffering. You are there sitting in front of the computer and lies about war and encourage war. It will be always curse in life. We need peace! We need peace before it goes out of the hand of the most peaceful president, Salvar Kiir. God bless him and JAMES HOTH ,the man who truly believes in patriotisim.
let me tell you this guys those called nuer are very powerfull i read yesterday a book about how they fought british colonialism for 39 years after all of sudanese tribes surrendered to british regime including jaaline ,fur dinka shawaiga, mesesiriya etc.
salva start the wrong war with them they need to given chance to lead the south not to be masasarced like what kiir did.
We are powerful with the problems not with good things. You had really read about our politicians and generals. They all had fought for personal objectives. They pretended to fight on behave of Nuers. My uncle was one of them and that was when I realized we fought meaningless fight. God will turn those Nuers who turn into war into their own bloodshed in the heaven.
