May 22, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —  Latest reports from three states of South Sudan indicate that more than five government officials have been killed within the last three days.

According to reports from Nyal administrative headquarters, and Rumbek North county, the two government commissioners of the neighboring states, together with other government officials, have been killed in an ambush following the latest battles in Payinjiar county.

Rumbek north county commissioner, Mr.Abraham Maloth and Lakes state governor’s advisor on peace and reconciliation, Ms.Apoth Dominic, were instantly killed in an ambush at the border of the two counties on Thursday evening as the government troops lost battles of control in Payinjiar to local youth and armed opposition; the Inspector of Police in Lakes State confirms.

According to the residents of Rumbek North county, the deadly ambush is blamed on forces of SPLA-IO under the overall commander of Maj. Gen. Khamis Abdellatif, the former director of National TV and radio.

Gen. Khamis, who hails from Lakes state, joined the revolution after falling out with Salva Kiir’s leadership and government officials including Michael Makuei Lueth, the government spokesman who overruled his duties in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

In Central Equatoria, Mr.John Cleopas, the acting Mundari West County commissioner who served as an executive director of the county, among others, has been killed this morning in a fight that was instigated by a defection to SPLA-IO in Mundari West County.

In Upper Nile state, Meluth County Commissioner and his counterpart, Peter Hoth Tuach, the state Minister of information have gone missing after the latest fierce battles in the county.

In other reports anti-government forces claim to have captured Guelguk and Mangok south of Paloch oilfields, a report that has pushed Chinese government to withdraw over 400 oilfields workers in Paloch.

According to the CCTV reports, more Chinese oilfields workers are expected to be withdrawn within the next few days.

Collapsing Economy

With the ongoing battles around the oilfields, South Sudan’s oil production has drastically dropped by over 75%.

Despite the withdrawal of oilfields workers, the Minister of Petroleum, Stephen Dhieu Dau, believes that South Sudan’s oil production has dropped by only 3000 barrels per day due to technical reasons.

“As you may be aware, there was a security incident recently in some areas around block three and seven, which is located in Melut county, upper Nile state,” Dau told a news conference.

“As of today, the oil production figure is 165,000 barrels per day. You will observe that before we were producing 168,000 sometimes 169,000, but for another technical reason not because of security it has reduced by 3000,” he said.

Coupled with the drop of oil prices in the international market, South Sudan faces high inflation and depreciation of its currency, the South Sudanese Pound.

      The Nuer are not a foolish like you guys, The Nuer know how to give and also they ( the Nuer) have more sympathy than you. Look at you, you grab the leadership and the same time looting the country resources that to destroy your legacy unknowingly.

      The greedy person can not know that is a type of said, unless people point finger to him or her.

      The Nuer culture can not allows somebody amongst Nuer to mistreated other person from different society, that is why we converted our neighbors Dinka Ngok because of the Nuer unique culture in Nuer society that allows everybody to enjoy as the rest of the Nuer in society. When Nuer rule South Sudan, everyone in South Sudan will says halleluiah.

        It is very unfortunate that Dinka did not give their Nuer Cousins a chance to stick their bloody mouths and hands into the government conffer. Are you guys certain that you did not get anything from Jalaba when you betrayed your Dinka Cousins and ran away with Jalaba? By the way, the Dinka is eating what they fought and sweated for. Why do you rape, kill and loot the innocent civilians if you are truly fighting for the liberation of South Sudan? What happened to the previous Nuer movements such as ssim and ssla? What did they accomplish in South Sudan so far? Will this war not end in failure like the previous rebellions? Dinka must kill Riek Machar in order to have peace and forgive his reapists and looters.

          Running to Jalaba is not new amongst South Sudanese. Samul Gai Tut was murdered by Jalaba sent agents whose orders from Arab north Sudan bosses was to destroy the Separatist’s organization(Anya-nya II)

          Those are today not traitors but people who was greedy for power and had wasted 21 years that could have been dedicated to separationist’s objective that South Sudan is now enjoying its fruits.

        Believe it or not, if Riek Machar did not flee to Ethiopia Gen.Malong Awan would have killed him and buried him beside the grave of the prophet Ngundeng. Anyhow gelweng and Mathiang Anyor are so devoted to keep the lunatic and coward(Riek) in Addis Ababa for the rest of his life. Any Nuer can be a president of South Sudan but not Riek Machar who thinks he can shoot his way to the presidency. Although prophet Ngundeng had falsely prophecised Riek’s presidency, it would not happen in our watch.


        • May 22, 2015 at 9:46 pm

          Prophecies lives in realm of primitivity. Since God does not exist, would prophecies even make any sense. Riek have already ruined his last chance. So nuer, you are highly likely to die without seeing riek ascending to power. I also question riek educational background since he believe in prophecies. The highly educated individuals knows the the fate of the universe. The Notion of God existent become child play as well as superficial believes in the eyes and mines of educated.

      Koch Gatkuoth:

      Kiir is better than that stupid PhD holder (Riek) who has been massacring the innocent people since 1991. We vowed to get him this time whether there is peace or not. We have no problem with our Nuer Cousins but we must chopped off the head of the sneak, Riek Machar. He has killed so many Nuers and Dinkas and the time has come for him to go.

    Peter Hoth Tuach, Upper Nile’s information Minister and Commissioner of Maluth County Cde Bol Aguer are well and find. They were in Paloich during attack in Maluth and came to Maluth yesterday to damage the burning of the town by Olony forces before their defeat. Hoth also gave an interview to Sudan tribune for south who want the truth. The above report is fictitious as usual from those who like to kill people with their tongues.

Captured them alive or dead, from there our game will be over or ending. Example are; Peter Gadet, Dak Kueth, Evil Riek Machar, Johnson Pliny, Duoth Lam, Tanginya, Gatwach Duol, Demon Ngudeng Bong,
    Plus those 11 criminal or gangs.

    Bol Akol check out this Video as a prove that Nuer were the one fighting Arab instead of your claim with out prove.


    • May 22, 2015 at 10:19 pm

      Rebellion is a Nuer culture, you cannot separate Nuer with rebellion habit, in south Sudan , because ,it give them power to raids cattle and tortures other tribes . Since British rule their first agenda was how to benefits from other tribe properties, Nuer know how to destroy and do not know how to build , know how to consume and does not know how to create food and other good things. Nuer have no history of fighting for the benefits of all , they end up fighting for individual benefits with short visions of hating and looting other tribe wealth. Big tribe fighting greedy and shameful wars with in they South Sudan every year. The hate external and love internal wars of envy . All Nuer counties nothing good , to be eaten , because all the youths are oriented to bring cattle from Dinka and Shilluk free things with out sweat . Salva Kiir and his tribe Dinka fought for 21 years ,liberation war with Arab , while Riek Machar , Lam Akol with their tribes were defeated together with Arab, and CPA brought them by force . Arab gave them assignment to confuse South Sudan government , to lost Abyei and Panthou plus border demarcation . These Reik and Olony are doing Khartoum interest. but the end will judge the means. Dinka community plus SPLA government which is collection of other tribes including some qualified Nuer that you spoiler as Nuer wew, are not ready to consider Reik hostile request . Shame on you rebels of burning young nation, while you never contributed good things but destruction make you proud to be owner, because you have changes to destroyed instead of building your own county , Padang will not allowed Shilluk killing them in their houses in cool blood, from now on ward , they will not stay on Malakal side of Padang ,they will accepted their side or run to khartoum who give them assignment to accommodated them and give their daughters as they are good in that prostitution.

        You are right my bro.Deng, Riek is wasting his time with these useless rebelion, South Sudanese are now very hungry to kill him, I don’t think riek will safely be welcomed in South Sudan any more, even the ordinary man in the Village is saying would kill riek if he step his foot in Juba. Riek has spoiled his CV and name in South Sudan beyond repair that no one trust him any more. They continue implementing Arabs Agenda in South Sudan for the world to say South Sudanese are unable to rule themselves and so Sudan should annex it back, this is the Objective of Arabs being implemented by Riek and most people are unaware of that.

        Riek is always a traitor and will remain a traitor implementing foreign agendas, He has no objective for South Sudanese because if Riek really think about well being of South Sudanese then I don’t think Riek would continue with this rebellion which is causing thousands death, thouands dying of hunger, women being rapped, see all these and all been caused by some one who claimed to be the only Educated South Sudanese, I doubt Riek Machar is educated at this point. Passed history has proved Riek is a violent Skeleton who believe in destruction of people’s lives and properties inorder to come to Power which will not happen this time, By the way let me tell you that, in this war Nuers including civilians have joined Rieks’s rebellion but Dinkas never do that, only those in the army are fighting, now if it turn to be Dinkas Civilians started joining to fight like what has started in Uppernile with Apandang when Riek Decieved Olony to join him after seeing all the military hardwares given Olony by Government, now that some of them are destroyed and captured, pitting a tribe against the other, Riek has already put Shilluk in danger in Upper Nile, Am worried Malakal will be destroyed to ashes this time unless Olony withdraw peacefully, Shillut should not follow Olony so that they are not targeted, I don’t think Riek will not regret his reckless rebellion this time, a tribe may be completly wipped out simply because Riek wanted the position of President in South Sudan, I think Riek will die this time either outside this country or within, wait and see.

          Riek koang, stop lying blood sucker your uncle had instigated the war and you were paid to confuse people in the media. Benybith brought this war to himself and the people of South Sudan. Stop blaming Dr. Riek, that is your uncle what has started this war cuz of his fear for election. Salvatore wants to stay in power like Bashir and Museveni. Well, too bad the people of South Sudan will not allow oneman on the show. For your information Mr. faking man called Riek Koang, get to the bottomline first before blaming. ONETHING is clear about your identity Mr.Dong, you mignt be a Dinka or Nuer Wew that is all I know…for sure.
