May 21, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — A Ukrainian pilot is feared dead among the crew of a South Sudan government helicopter that was gunned down yesterday by the Opposition forces near the main oil fields in Melut.
“SPLM/SPLA is hereby announcing that its forces have shot down another helicopter gunship on Wednesday in Melut town, South Sudan.” said James Gatdet Dak, the spokesperson of Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
According to credible sources, the crew include 2nd Lt.Adhelmouz maciek Adhelmouz, a pilot and an Engineer, 2nd LT Chol, the co-pilot, 2nd LT Madiing, an engineer, and unnamed Ukrainian pilot.
The reliable source reveals that the chopper, which was dropping off reinforcements in Meluth, was carrying 45 soldiers when it was gunned down by the forces of the warlord general, Maj. Gen. Olony, who is now allied with the main Oppositio, SPLA-IO.
According to James Gatdet Dak, the chopper gunship was raiding on their forces while battling the ground troops loyal to President Salva Kiir.
“The gunship was carrying out air raid on positions of our forces near Paloch oilfields and inside Melut town when it met its fate. It fell in Melut town and can be easily independently verified.”
After four days of battle towards the Paloch oilfields, the combined forces of SPLA[IO] and SPLA-Agwelek withdrew from the strategic town of Maluth to reorganize and attack according to James Gatdet.
“Our forces have tactically withdrawn to a few kilometers outside Melut town in order to reorganize for the next move. It is to be recalled that we captured the town on Tuesday. We have also remained in full control of Thiangrial refinery site in the area.” Dak said.
“Paloch oilfields have remained besieged and our forces are waiting for next order to move in. We intend to avoid a takeover that may damage oil facilities.” Dak continues.
While the military headquarters of SPLA [Juba] is still handling criticism and struggling to retake the strategic towns including the capital of Upper Nile, many young South Sudanese, supporters of the crew and their families are pouring out their condolences and best wishes to the deceased.
“Back in the day this sort of news will galvanise people to pick up the gun and go fight for the rights of their fellow kin and those whose rights have been denied, however the current war in South Sudan is one premised on greed and not on social justice. I hope South Sudan is not forever doomed to a history of war and not prosperity, but that’s is a far fetched thought. RIP Adhelmouz Maciek Adhelmouz you fought for the right reasons bro.”said Ater Mckuong Dhuol.
South Sudanese youth in diaspora, sadden by the news, are calling for peace as many young people continue to perish at the frontline.
“War in Upper Nile State South Sudan left my family back home mourning. my heart is breaking, to lost 2 cousins within a week is heartbreaking, and seeing country have so much hope when they achieved their freedom 2011, but now they are killing each other is heartbreaking, it’s very sad thing i could ever imagine. Losting Adhelmouz Maciek Adhelmouz, and Magok Aliak-aliak is great pain to our families and to Yirol community as whole. Let South Sudan government and rebel take a note on their senses war is killing our young people on both side. We’re calling for peace!! May God Rest their Souls in Peace!!” Abraham Madit Majak.
Since May 15, 2015, the government faction [SPLA-Juba] has lost control of Malakal, Tangrial and Melut In Upper Nile as war flares northwards towards the only functional oil fields.
Among other losses, the rebels have seized a government warship full of military equipments, and killed most of the troops on board.
Major clashes broke out, mostly, in the three states of Greater Upper Nile as the regime launch heavy offensives to claim the rebel strongholds before the rainy season, a strategy that worked in 2014 but now seems to backfires.
In Jonglei state, heavy battles continued in Pajut for the last two weeks with heavy death tolls and destruction of other lives and property on both sides.
This would mark the end of rebellion and Shilluk should know that their son has brought endless death to their people like Riek ,tears will continue rolling down their cheeks.
The closer it is to home the more hypocrites comes out of woodworks. The Oppositions will take it to the state of Warraap and we will all cry equally, suffer the same fate as the rest gone.
I’ve been wanting to ask you a question for a while, and it is: If each tribe started to vote for their tribal candidate who will always win the election of South Sudan’s presidential elections?
You seem paranoid about Kiir, as the the American Republicans party about Obama. Kiir was elected by 80 + % of the voters turnouts. Among these votes, 30 % were Nuer’s, could you explain to me why? Of course, you won’t. Let me tell you Sir, these Nuer voters weren’t looking for tribal potentate, but, rather, for a wise person to bring all people together into a common purpos; the future of their next generations. Of course, there are scavengers everywhere you go in this world, and I mean the currupt circles who use Kiir’s trust to all, including former murderous rebels, who plunder the prosperity of Marginalized Southerners. Your article last time with regard to that Helicopter, allegedly shot down by Johnson Oleny rebels, was untrue, and the Picture of the alleged Ugandian’s Gunship, was Ugandian indeed, but, it was a picture taken from a crush sight in Kenya, back in 2012. You had never given any Credits to journalists who took every picture you post on your web site yet, and it is a dishonesty. You are a disservice to Journalism, or activism if you are one. And you should be very ashamed. Do you you know how many souls killed due to your disinformations? Count your toes and fingers, and number the innocence people that were murdered today by persons who listened to you propaganda’s run website?
Above your comment there is GatNor and Ater and then Nyamilepedia Website(Media/Host) it is not clear to me which one of us you are attempting to address in your comment?
What you guys trying implemented as Dinka kingdom since we were in war with north will not prevail in South Sudan. Your greedy culture that some of you have been looting country resource since before independence of this young nation still on up to then in Juba. War is war who is good to die and who is good to lives? all blame goes back to Salva because he could deal with Riek Machar politically without including innocent Nuer who have nothing to do with politics. Salva Kiir killed them because they were Nuer. That was why some of Dinka Ngok Lual Ayak were killed in Juba due to that they having the same marks like Nuer. Is a government can work that way? The consequences of war must be faced by those who defense their tribal government.like those who got killed in helicopter gunship were not defending the country, they were defending their tribe-leadership. The way that can ease this war is federalism, and go to loot your thing in your regions.
The white army who overrun Makalal three time last year are coming to Melut to see who are Adongjoul militias. Let the war continue until you say war is not good.
Ya Mr. Gadet Peter, No Ukrainian Pilot was killed in Upper Nil state , People are aware about your propaganda all over the media ,your report are bias , the only educated Nuers in SPLA IO is Riak the rest are valueless officers including Olony himself .
2nd lieutenant of the SPLA is far better then all illiterates Generals of rebels .even if you captured Upper Nil state which language will your generals address combine forces of Shiluk and Nuers ? ,Nuer Language or Shiluk ? , No Arabic No English Hhahahaha Fools can not govern Nation ,they better quite War and go to School .you are fighting for nothing ,even if peace is achieved ,all of you will be retire because you have no languages to run the office hahahahaha Fools a
You idiot,you have no idea what are throwing out. Your uncle started it.
YEeezS!!$$, uncle started, miscalculated it and now refusing to test it, just like a baby making its very best not to take a cough-medicine. finger calculation is an idea for uncle’s next move.plan-B 213 no the order is 1234 and so on. good luck!!!!!
If the Nuer and Shilluk have nothing in both English and Arabic, except Riek Machar, you will see when good government comes in South Sudan. Speaking dialect to discussed sensitive issue is a part of security reason. All Dinka Malwal who employed in South Sudan all are carrying forgery degrees from Nairobi with help from Jiok to connect them with Kenya high education office. Furthermore, Salva Kiir said $100,000 to Kenya in order to open away for his people.
Corruption is a part of your culture that is why you do not want federalism due to that all of you are expertise in stealing. No one of you will try to sheet others in your regions.
Nuer are the most uncivilised and most illitrates on earth…look at what u called democracy when Paulino matip was leading his own movement,Peter Gatdet had his own movement,Riek machar had his own movement? where is democracy you all cried for yet Dinkas had been following one and only people’s movement SPLM/A for all their life…u better get back and think,analyse and talk.coz nuer community was never stable from the beginning till date,u never like peace and thats your curse…DON’T TALK ABOUT DEMOCRACY COZ U DON’T KNOW GOOD GOVERNANCE..stupid fools who just got liberated by Dinkas and now you are shouting not knowing how south sudan came into existence..riek,gatdet,matip just came in 2003,2006 and 2008 from Khartoum government being ill minded and visionless..what do we other south sudanese hope from a man who once took alligiances with our enemy of the south..victory is certain…
gat nya teny,
You are very ignorance. Dinka did not fight alone. Some of you, you need to learn how to acknowledge the small tribes that contributed during the war. Now that your father Slava Kiir is leading the country, you think it was Dinka who liberated South Sudan
That is being foolish and selfish after the fact that all South Sudanese people shed their blood to bring Independence that the Dinka are leading and looting all the resources to satisfy their egos and greed. Please your government need to learn how to share the resources.
All South Sudanese tribes had contributed in many ways. It did not matter how small other tribes are, they still contributed materially, physically, and kindly by providing moral to the SPLA/M. Please stop being lunatic and ignorance. Each and every tribe in South Sudan shed the blood. Unless you are such a hypocrite who knows nothing about the struggle.
Those of Slava Kiir and his likes who stole the wealth of the country are claiming that they fought for it. What about those whose sons were killed in the battle fields too? Their parents are still struggling with poverty. what do they get? Are you trying to tell us that the Dinka blood were more important than others? So they deserve to loot the resources of the country? That is just being hypocrite and ruthless. Every South Sudanese deserves equal rights. There is no more human in South Sudan than others. We are all equal whether you like it or not.
The Ukrainian pilots like Ugandans pilots have been pool by the primitive Salva Kiir and criminal Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and now they have meet their fates in the fields of death.
This is just the beginning, more still to come and the crying will continues beyond the South Sudanese Territories.
Congratulation to our Freedom Fighters.
God Almighty is on our side.
Stop your bullshits
You do not make sense to state that which language will be used. First of all, Johnson Olony just defected from the government of South Sudan, what language was used when Johnson and his forces were with the government of South Sudan?
I hope that is the end of the disease called salva kiir,fighting will continue until our gallan forces enter juba,on other hand thanks major.general USD who is now fighting with them in juba.
what do you think if the shuluk and nuer resort to killing your people now and not later?. you people love and enjoy killing un-armed persons. keep doing the killings and there will remaind a little or none of you in greater upper nile if all the oppositions find it necessary to stop the arrest/killings of upper nile and equatorian civilians, than you, and you will feel the agony of killing your unarmed civilians as you do to others MR ATER etc.
The warnings went out before the incident if such had happened. Why didn’t these foreign worker and or mercenaries leave the hostile grounds. Juba-Faction has no rights in holding foreign workers hostage as their human shield as I heard reported on other media agencies.
God must forgive you people! These are too much lies!
General Johnson Olony oyee
Down down Primitive Paul Malong Awan.
Primitive Paul Malong should go back to Dinka pasture land to look after the cattles together with his primitive friend Michael Makawi
Chol wani if you don’t like Denka, why you give yourself dinka name? you supposed to be called wani tombi that is your coward grandfather jur
We all know here that, every one of you enjoy dailly basics and smelling smocks of our children blood.
But,Every thing has time, even the day must keep waiting to the night,
so your time is coming soon to mourn and blame yourself instead of enjoying daily death of innoncent nuer and shulluk children against your killer regime who never tires to kill innocent Nuer and Shuluk.
Your time is coming for game to be in your side and make sure to leave for uganda B4 we come.
MY Last advice, don’t watch that untrusted and unhelpful SSTV ANY MORE.
Only one choper left with a UPDF pilot. It is refusing to go on front
War never be end if president kiir saying not stepdown. People of South sudan the don’t want him to rule forever .looks into the death of John Garang through Ugandan people’s and son of man with SPL.IO
How can Ukraine pilot got killed in South Sudan when his country is in choas with the pro Russia separatist? RIP
Well put! Well put lad!
See, folks here don’t know how this world functions, if you remember Hitler, that wicked, who has been in Hell since his suicidal death in late 1945, thought that the mass killing of 6000.000. Jewish, would not be found out, but today evidences are everywhere. In the years of mass communications, smart phones and so forth, wait till this senseless acts of massacres stops, and pictures, videos and eye witnesses return from the neighboring countries, where they took refuge since that cursed war began 2013, world will be shocked about these bias supports the so called media has been giving Risk Machar’s rebellion. Truth will always prevail and we’ll see!
