    • Hello Readers,

      DID I READ CORRECTLY THAT UPPER NILE REGION WILL HAVE A MEETING??

      What a joke! thinking and caring about upper Nile while stupid war Is going on here and there??
      Sometimes I wonder what is Inside my Nuer people head specially in the brain?

      The message Is fake and those who wrote that message are jerks and do not have any idea what is really happened on the ground specific in Upper Nile Nuer Areas.

      Please do not pretending like you need unity and peace amongst upper Nile people..My Nuer people messed up already and we must to look ourselves first.
      All over upper Nile , most of Our Nuer people are aggressors and violent makers and invaders to their neighbors and primitive thinkers. Please what are we now in the views of our fellow citizens of South Sudan???

      Thank you very much

    First of all, I am not from Upper Nile States of which I should have join you but the problems in your Regions have been affecting none of Upper Nile Regions since the SPLA/SPLM was born at Bilpam Ethiopia. Obviously, the issue of peace is one of the thing we should be respected to thanks those who thoughts about it. There are many things which always related to Upper Nile Regions problems and I will be happy if your meeting will address in detail by details. General speaking, there is a concerns of violence even when there is no political conflict still too many killing remains to be seen in your communities and the Upper Nile Regions are not living peaceful like any others Regions in South Sudan nation this shown that, there is a lack of peaceful to one another. We do know the majority tribe in Upper Niel Regions is Nuer, follow by Dinka tribe, Murle tribe, Shilluk tribe, Anyauk tribe and there are many tiny tribes to follow the above mentions this is just an example. Since the Nuer tribe is the big Fish in Upper Nile, the Nuers people should have been playing a good role by showing others smallest tribes hospitality and friendly to their neighborhood on how to love one another unfortunately, the big tribe in Upper Nile Regions is the one who attacking smallest tribes and that leave mistrust on the big Fish within Upper Nile Regions not to mention also the Bhar el Ghazal Regions are facing same bad neighbors with Nuers. To resolving problems and lived peaceful coexistence in your Regions of Upper Nile clearly, the Big tribe like Nuers have to change their culture of hatred, looting others cows, killing on smallest tribes in Upper Nile States. I understand changing cultures is one of the harder thing to do but there is nothing important than trying and showing your willingness and your commitment and I think the Regions of Upper Nile will living peaceful if the big Fish if they were not aggressively on others tiny tribes.

    What do I mean always by telling Nuers brothers and sister to change their culture?
    Well, it is not secret to repeated what I have been saying all along.
    1. All signs of mistrust indicated that, the vast majority of Southern Sudanese have a strong negatives views on Nuers simply, because of racist. The none of Nuer tribes in South Sudan are very worried if the Nuer took power then, the smallest tribes are going to be suffers a lot and the Dinka tribe will be okay because they are majority in the nation this is absolutely what it is in the hearts of none Nuer tribes apart from Dinka mistrust on Nuers people. I am thinking the following example in below need to be change unless the people don’t want to lived peaceful.

    The unrest violence throughout in the Regions of Upper Nile that puts mark on the big Fish which is Nuers as the worst people on earth and trouble maker in that Regions. Now it does not mean that all problems are caused or created by Nuers alone but 85% conflict it is always blames on big tribe Nuer just like Dinka tribe is facing too complains in the whole nation partly, because of being a majority tribe in the Young nation. The violence maybe including political conflict and the domestic problems. If your neighbor always loved fighting at any zero hour basically, the surrounding neighbors are going to dislike them and no one will trust them either this is what it has been going in Upper Nile Regions for years if not century people seen Nuers as a sources of violence..
    Impatience and gimmick accusation are absolutely become a big issue on Nuers people. I don’t think Salva Kiir Mayardit was having dreaming to became a president of South Sudan if he was not a patience guy although his leadership has failed to meet the high exception from Southern Sudanese people thus, it is impossible to deny him from being a good patience man. After when the Southern Sudanese gained her independence 2011, the majority people from Dinka tribe were always visiting office of Dr. Riek Machar Teny and none of the Dinaks majority never visited office of president Salva Kiir Mayardit. and I think what had been denying former vice president is lack of patience, the creation of rebellion and taking side with his tribal armies militiamen. The former vice president is absolutely perfectly in any shape to become a president of any nation in the world unfortunately, these related Items wouldn’t allowed the PhD holder to become a president in any country from around the world. Our brothers of Nuers are known very well for being impatiences, seeking high rank, easy to be fool by their tribal man and roughness which is perceived as a negative and in the end of day, the resulting of being impatience is no, no, no..
    Creation of rebellions, the none of Nuers tribes in South Sudan have lost the trustworthy on our brothers and sisters of Nuers this is because the rebellion had been repeated in numbers of years even during the time of referendum still members of Nuers militiamen were continued fighting in Upper Nile Regions this show that, the big tribe in your Regions must change the cost and works hard to limited this notion of creating rebellion as a way of answering your complains. The list of the things in trying to answer why none of Nuer tribes are afraid, I think it could go longer but these few mentions from the above are parts of negatives views on Nuerss people by the vast majority of Southern Sudanese people..

    Finally, although none of my suggestion above would be in the calling on Upper Nile Regions meeting perhaps, the members of Nuers have to be frankly by trying to puts themselves in the space and resolving what is not necessary for their future. You have seen Secondary Students in Upper Nile Regions haven’t seat finally examination for national certification and this is blamed on political war. There has been a lot of reports for looting cows both sides, Nuers, Dinkas, Murle.for example, two Months ago, the White Army and some SPLA IO a cross border from Mayeidit county in Unity State and attacking Agar Dinka of Northern Rumbek county, the commissioner notice, there were 7 attackers were caught alive and they were hand over to State’s police in Lake State. Also on April/2014, the White Army from Bul communities and the SPLA IO together made attacked in Northern Warrap County known as Twic county. There were 19 Pregnancies women were killed and cuts death mothers stomachs up in to pieces of bodies and slaughtering up 19 unborn child. This is considering the act of inhuman mentality and there were many things happened on Murle tribe during the time when 6000 Nuers White Army have invaded homes almost three weeks and the invaders were killing murles from house to houses so it is important for Nuers as a big Fish to address these negatives views because the Son of Nuers wouldn’t get elected by those citizens who have been facing unbelievable killing and they were not aware why Nuers are doing this. I think the Nuers themselves need to correct themselves before claiming to get leadership. and I would like also to thanks those people who made calls for peace otherwise, I would be totally lost to suggest their intentionally agenda.

  • I know those of Mawein Magol don’t feel ashamed of being liar, yes i can agree with you that they could have agendas discussing insecurity with in the region but you keep on lying that only upper Nile region has a problem since formation of SPLA in Bilpam. Sorry brother, let me give you some clue of how those problems came into existent. Anyanya1 was formed in 1955 with objective to gain independence of South Sudan till peace agreement was signed in A/A that a problem of being independence state will be discussed as internal among ourselves. In 1974 Anyanya2 was formed aimed of gaining independence of South Sudan too but dr.John Garang came and hijacked and made a coup against Samuel Gai Tut and Kuot Atem who was a leaders of the movement at Bilpam which you now mention as a formation of SPLA. remember Anyanya1&2 never fight with any tribe because their objective is clear but SPLA begins its birth with a coup against its people and Massacre of Gajjaak year after then begins to loot, rape and take people to war by force in Upper Nile region. SPLA begins to fight many tribe and make a cover up that they want to join Khartoum regime. Coming to insecurity which you claim is found only in Upper Nile region, what about fighting in Rumbek are these people in Upper Nile Region? then in Warraf there are a clan fighting every year are these people from Upper Nile too? Only Equaroria region which seems quite because all its problem are brought into being by Dinka and Mundary tribe. Therefore out of SPLA-IO rebel movement we have the one of David Yaw Yaw who is not fighting to get his right from Nuer. You have Equatoria Defend force which is looking for their right from Juba not Nuer. I hope telling truth is the one which will set us free but it seem only some people in South Sudan who are truth tellers.

    • Thank you for telling these cowards Jur like it is. You beat me to the punch ofcourse. I have notes gathered on this specific top detailing a violent coup indeed was what happened to Anyanya II. I would have to be careful not to plagiarized your comment should I release them for publication and public consumption.

  • It is about time for people of greater upper Nile to come together as one entity.

    People of greater Equatoria and greater Bahr Algazal have been doing this for a while.

    It is good news that south Sudanese are starting to think on the bases of states residency rather than on tribal bases.

    I applaud who is behind this great initiative.

    Keep it up
