May 12, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—Former SPLM Secretary General and former Detainees Cde Pagan Amum Okiech Son of Paramount chief Edward Amum Okiech failed in the politic of South Sudan since he was removed from SPLM Secretary General by Salva Kiir. Cde Pagan has lost popularity in Chollo Community since he was working with Dr. Garang the SPLM founder; he didn’t participate in Shilluk Dinka land dispute in Upper Nile Region.

He was working for his own interest supporting Dinka for taking the Land of Chollo in Panyikang, Dolieb and other areas in Malakal. Cde Amum, Gen. Oyay were detained in Juba together with their colleagues SPLM members because of Politic issues in the Country, but Chollo People they had not complain for their Sons. Now Cde Amum knowing that he doesn’t have popularity to lead the Country as President, he decided to contest for the 35th Shilluk King to regain Chollo people and make his Sons, Daughters to be loyal in the Community.

Pagan Amum he is alone with no Colleagues, relatives to support him in the Country South Sudan and others foreign politic. He is the selfish person even his relative they are not sharing food, and Pagan Amum thanks God because He created Shilluk as Minority in the Country and said that we Shilluk never share food even your wife, that is why you’re looking me as target person in the Country, I don’t want others tribes to be in Country South Sudan is only Shilluk Tribe not all of them only Okiech Family.

The problem is will Cde Pagan Amum succeed to be King in Chollo Land? Big No. Coronation of the Räth(King) The Chollo system does not tolerate a prolonged power vacuum (wangi-yomo) following the passing of the sovereign. it is the law and order and therefore must be immediately replaced.

The process of installation of the new Rath (King) begins immediately once the council of chiefs (jagiwipadiwad) have met and decided on a choice. Cde Amum is not the honest person in the Shilluk Kingdom to be select by the Chollo Council of Chief.

To be chosen, the prince should have been born during the reign of his late father; any one from Okiech Family was selected as King? Should not have scars whatsoever on his body; should not be known to be a coward as he grew up under the supervision of the chief of the village in which he was brought about The Current Chollo King, will he allow Cde Pagan Amum to comein the Shilluk Kingdom Land?

Big No Räth Kwongo Dak Padiet is the reigning sovereign. He was installed as 34th Shilluk Rath in 1992. Now he planned for his Sons not any from Shilluk like Pagan Amum. The Räth elect – ororo – prepares for wowo (last funeral rites) of the late Räth and embarks on his own installation process.

Once all the ritual items (Jami kwer) have been procured and Nyikango has accented to the choice of jagiwipadiwad, then the final stages of coronation (kwer rony) begin in earnest. It could take up to three months until the last day of the ceremony when all the chiefs pay their allegiance to the new Räth, assures the Shilluk nation, and then begin his reign throughout the Chollo Kingdom.

Our support as South Sudanese Community, let we fight to convince our brothers and Sisters Chollo Community to accept Pagan Amum request to be a King , to rebuilt his relationship with his Community and then step to State and after 10 year to the Country.

The Räth (King) reigns for life from Pachodo – established in about 1690 – 1710 as the kingdom’s headquarters and site for coronation of kings by Tugo wad Dhakodh. However, the reigning sovereign is expected to found his own village; and comes to Pachodo only when major decisions affecting the kingdom have to be taken.

Cde Pagan Amum Okiech go to live in Fashoda to fight with your Community together in this Country Crisis, maybe they will honor you and think for your selection as the next King in the Chollo Kingdom. First of all, Pagan Amum has been accused of being a corrupt person by his Community, former boss Salva Kiir Mayardit and many people in the world are more aware about the that.

Pagan was the very person behind the down fall of the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) because he was the General Secretary who was supposed to make thing right in the Party but because of divisive and too much talking from Mr Amum, he has buried the party up to zero level.

This one it make Pagan as friendless in the Country even in the Shilluk Community, because he down play the Shilluk Land dispute with Dinka and he was given a huge Money by Dinka Leaders special George Athor and Stephen Dhiew for his own Family ,not thinking for the land of shilluk Community. How can someone who lost his family support be come Leader in the Country?Big No. Now Amum have a new decision to regain his Community relationship through selected him as Chollo King.

    You have nothing to say all this shits are propaganda you have to fight for Riek Macher to be Nure king or God , because he failed to be a president even to contest him self he failed , Nyamilelpedia I think you want Pagun Amum to join the rebellion but he don’t want to spoil his name because of stupid things like you’re most people did, there is one method Nure used to it that is spoiling people names if they refused to join they’re hopeless movement. Sorry for you guys Upton when you will continue doing this shit shame on you shame on you

    “Pagan Amum Okiech to contest to be the 35th Chollo King” That’s just funny the high school drop-out is chasing PhD holders out of the country and destroying political careers at will.

    Mr Panguel AGUMUT, there is no God in human suits ever in history of mankind and its not going to happen as you ridiculously wish. I am impressed that you actually believe a God would eventually arise from the blessed tribes of Nuers. That alone tells me you have acknowledged the divinity bestowed upon all including the Nuers. haha gotchu coward!

      Pagan Amum was very bored,it seems he becomes normal guy since his was removed. Little Mouth.

    Mr. Tut Tongyik Larguan.
    My question to you is that, what is your concerning about Shilluk King? If you are Nuer or Dinka nor Anyuak, you have no rights to talk about Shilluk King otherwise, there is something attaching on it.

      you haven’t notice the pattern of Juba politician? Usually when attacking articles comes out like this the writers sound out of touch for a reason later to be revealed. Dr Okuk did the same thing and it later was obvious it was about pushing out Kun Puoc from governorship. Lets see what the rambling is about in the next days, weeks or so. G10 are floaters yet to be effective only when they have put their 10% weight either on Juba or Pagaak’s side of faction.

      Mawien Magol & Pawiil,

      Tut is apparently an ideal educated s. south sudan citizen who is not just limited to Naath traditional knowledge base but knows the basics of all other tribes. I don’t see anything wrong with his analysis.

      Tut and his likes are very welcome in our political environment so that they do vetting and weeding out of wrong elements in our leadership pools. I appreciate his analysis as part of the awakening triggered by this Crisis. After this crisis passes, we do want to see the wrong leader in the right place and vice versa – otherwise we should have not learned anything from our painful experiences!

      You are looking at Tut ideas with tribal lenses

        Toutoute Dagany,

        Maybe this writer should start with hopleless Riek Machar.
        Riek Machar is failed leader who is visionless and clueless.

    Nuer, when you run out of thought or something to talks about, you resorted to writing nothing which do with guessing only. Nuer cultures of Nyagatism with no end, cannot be afford by others tribes. Riek will win nothing in SS. A wise man like Amum will never joins Riek Machar. You can writes whatever pop up in your little mind to reduces your boring time, it will not produces any thing.

      I thought you were already dead Mr. Deng II. Welcome back to the forum. Remember, you and AGUMUT who also wish me death for some selfish unknown reasons (probably the same person with many names) can cheat South Sudan but not death. Imagine me preparing a generous obituary on your behave.


      • May 13, 2015 at 5:17 am

        We will all die whether you like it or not,the God of heaven will come and strangle you if AIDS,Diabetes,bloody pressure and aging deny you to take you away.Cool

          May 13, 2015 at 6:53 am

          So why do you feel the need to advocate that I die when you already know that fact. Are you and Deng II the angels of death? Perhaps you are but you don’t decide nothing and I certainly don’t wanna hear it from you two. Your nature is to wish other bad omens I hope you really reconsider because its a cowardly thing to do. If I hated you that much I would pray that god keeps you a live till I make you pay myself and wouldn’t wish you a useless death of a dog. Cant you cowards atleast have that integrity. God is not like the Ugandan UPDForces & M7 and will not do your dirty evil plan for you.

        Gatnor, My Cousin I never wish you death, even Dr.Ebola (Riek Machar) I never wish Him death, but I wish him to leave the politic and go to private life, he is miserably failed the Nuer People and SS people. Dr. Ebola cannot manages Nuer faction, in 1991 like John Garang did to keep Dinka in his leadership. How would Dr Ebola Keep Nuer under his lead for long time? Because he thought being educated can let people lick his feet and adore him, fault.
        Dinka corrupts and alcoholic dude (kiir) is patriot and better than Dr.Ebola (Riek). He let our Cousin Nuer people suffering, instead we use our population to liberates the land occupation by Arab north.

    Mr. Tut, you have got it wrong, the weakness and disorders of Nure culture is incomparable with that of Shillik, first of all you had plagiaries your article from disappeared world film of coronation of Chollo king, and if you are of knowledge of your writing, the selection of King in Chollo is not like that lawless Nure Kingdom, where the chief must be giant worrier who lack the wisdom, Now Nure had finished by Dinkas and you calling for Chollo to help you fight Dinka, but that will not come by insulting Pagan Amum who refused to fight and kill innocence south Sudanese

    Mighty freedom fighter white army fight for the following.
    1-Release of G10 which they actually achieved,
    2-Fight for Justice and accountability which has already achieved US,UK, AU has already talk about atrocities committed in 2013 in Juba and those accountable will be brought to book or court which America has already pay money for its establishment. 3- Fight for peace to come if root cause of problem is addressed and Salva Kiir is out of Seat this is going to happen as soon as possible. Economic crisis is sky rokening in SS and world refuse to give loan to Juba regime.
    4- Fight for Federalism which is largely accepted by most of South Sudanese and its is the top agenda in peace talk which is accepted by all committee including Kiir himself. Where do you think Nuer fail to achieve by Now? Mighty Nuer are fighting Nuer wew, SPLA-N, SPLA-Juba, Shiluk Militia, Burun Militia, Equatoria Defense force, JEM, UPDF, Gwelweng and Mathiang Anyor yet they are still in controll of 90% of greater Upper Nile. Therefore Pagan Amum alone he was fooled by those of IGAD that they will be given a leadership presidency after formation of GNU

      Please go back and study or exam last John Jerry’s picture of his plea accountability on Nyamilepedia.It was like hear it and feel the heat of war and i think SPLM-IO should be accountable of all crimes.It will happen because Nuer had chased it own people to UNMISS Camps because of war propaganda,simply because the wanted other tribes to join them in order to kill their only hatred Dinka. while Dinka still didn’t beat the DRUMMERS of WAR.

      Pagan was even nominate by Machar in an attempt quicken his release and to be a part and head of the representing team at the negotiations. What did Pagan do.. Oh he is neutral. Neutral my foot. Why is Pagan not neutral now that Johnson Olony and the Chilluks are rebelling against the state governor’s government(that is not any different from Juba government) the highest government representative in the state. Is that not breaking the state and national constitution concurrently.

    The imprudent mentality of mighty Nuer, is finishing your illiterate Naath brothers.
    You the Nyigat instigators in the Cities of neighboring Countries, and those selfish & clueless diaspora Nuer, who give no-remorse to the unending suffering of their fellow Kith & Kin in Greater Upper Nile.
    You diaspora Nyigat howling & beating drums of war, whereby your fellow Kith & Kin sleeping in swamps under mercy of insects and eating water Lilies and unclean drinking water.
    You diaspora Nyigat continue dissection propaganda with illusion of installing your prophet of Doom to the helm of Leadership in RSS, is a hallucination that wouldn’t happen even when courting the so called western World for another decade.
    With all the below factors.
    * Collapsing Economy
    * Looming Hunger
    * Arms Embargo
    No way for Prophet of Doom as a suitable alternative, so rest assured that, the above factors, will only change with a fresh insider Leader, not you diaspora idols and instigators.

      Had Machar not halt advancements towards the capital every major town including Juba would be captured within a short time.

      Exactly as it happened just before 2005 and you will be begging for peaceful settlement to the conflict and unity again just like you did in the late 90th( you might not get your wish this time). Give SPLM/A-In Opposition more time and you will see how weak this government is.

      During the 91 split, Machar and his forces had captured from Dr.Garang and Salva Kiir every major town including Juba. The duo(Garang & Kiir) was left to control only the town and city of Nimule. This spelled a total collapsed of the so called liberation for a United Secular Sudan.


      • May 13, 2015 at 8:05 am

        I am really tired and sick of your bulshits and baseless claims that your small god aka Dr. Risky Massacerer Traitor was requested by your western allies not to advances to Juba, why, when, how, where, by who and for what reason?
        Who do you think is not aware of Naath’s Wanathin mentality in then Sudan and now in South Sudan??????

          Tut Tongyik Gach Larguan,

          Maybe you time should be spent writing about serious matters that affect South Sudan instead of writing nonsense.
          At no time did Mr. Pagan Amum claim to want to be Collo king.
          If you Nuer want Pagan to join your rebellion then try and convince him.
