May 23, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — I, Gaaanun Yieh Gatkuoth do hereby state on my own behave and that of the Panyijiar community members residing in cities of Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret and Kakuma our joyous and wholehearted congratulations to Payijiar County Commissioner Captain Tab Puot, all Chiefs and our gallant civil defense soldiers for inflicting a humiliating defeat on President Gen. Salva Kiir’s mercenaries in our home town of Nyal on 21st May, 2015.
As we ululate and dance in celebration of this historical victory, we tearfully console and mourned with the deceased who sacrifice their dear life in line of defense.
In respect to the deceased, we urge the commissioner Capt. Tab Puot to identify those departed heroes who perished in the war of Nyal. A monument featuring their names will be built in the near future, so that mothers, elderly and children whom they defended and sacrifice their lives for will know that without them perhaps they wouldn’t be alive today.
Notwithstanding this terrible pain, you have taught them a lesson that they would hardly forget. We’re sure; they are coughing dark blood wherever they are. And it is high time for Salva Kiir to realize the risk of initiating unjust war against a united and organized community. Let them consult those who attacked Nyal in January 2001 before launching another aggression on us. They assaulted us on land and via the sea-port of Taiyar but you managed to repulse them with limited ammunitions.
All their war machines that you captured; 3 tanks (T-55) in good condition and 2 Tanks (T-55) destroyed and 2 Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) captured, 1 APC destroyed, 8 big trucks captured in good condition, 2 Toyota pick-up mounted with other deadly weapons are empirical evidences to hold these war mongers accountable for war crime and crime against humanity in the international criminal court.
It is now crystal clear that President Gen. Salva Kiir and his cohorts work deliberately to make the lives of innocent people wreck; he is on extermination mission and to smother all our freedoms with sole aim to deeply entrench his iron hold on power. Other victimize communities in Lich State and other parts of south Sudan should learn from this lesson shown to these marauding forces of Juba, that they do not necessarily need sufficient ammunitions or superior weaponry to defeat these scavengers, they only need to adopt and instill unwavering will, passion and understanding of the necessity to defend themselves when an attack is launch on them for self-defense is a natural right.
We know these attackers are mere cowards who attack and run. Sun Tsu once said, if you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not to fear the result of hundred battles.
This is heroic military victory of twenty first century in our county of Panyijiar. This gruesome attack should be eye opener to us; we still call on you to remain vigilant for another combat should these illiterate cabals return for the worse. Therefore we urge you to remain in the trenches to shield and safeguard our ancestral land. We are hopeful that, when they return; you will give them a benefit of doubt.
President Salva Kiir should be informed that his days are numbered. He is sitting on time-bomb pending to explode, thus, he should reconsider stepping down for war to halt.
He is a villain president who should be shown the exit door failure to which our hard fought independent risks miscarriage. His Government represents not only the absence of human values, but negation of values; he is anti-reform element disfiguring all that come with reform in the country.
Together with other south Sudanese progressive forces, we shall boot him out forcefully by hook or crook. We are committed to fight against his dictatorial regime that has vowed to stay put until the reform agenda is achieved.
Moreover, we are sending an alarming siren to all the Hand-to-mouth politicians and puppeteers purporting to represent Payijiar in Juba’s tatters regime. The likes of Kuong Danhier Gatluak, Lony Geang, Gatluak Doar, Gatluak Pech and William Nyuon Joak. We know you’re the one who planned and assist in the attack in Nyal with an objective to make yourself relevance in the eye of your god father. But we shall hold you to account directly or indirectly.
President Kiir killed our people in cold blood on the 15th -16th December 2013 in Juba and in Panyijiar headquarters on 7th February 2014. He is doing the same this year.
These bootlickers politicians ought to know that Payijiar land government present at all, it has no single structure ever build by Salva Kiir’s government since it took the reins of power in 2005.
We have been oppressed and marginalized; we are the most underdeveloped county in the all of the country with no telecommunication network, clean water, electricity, health clinic or modern primary school. So most naturally, we should be the first people that call for his immediate ouster by any mean possible.
Following the massive loss of lives and destruction of properties in the hand of this wanton regime, we appeal to the international community to imposed arms embargo on Salva Kiir government to avert more loss of innocent lives.
Finally, we call on Former Nigerian President, chairman of the African Union commission of Inquiry, Olusegun Obasanjo to expedite the publication of Africa Union Inquiry Reports.
We eagerly want that Report release without further delay so that these Perpetrators who murdered our innocent People with hope to escape justice can be brought to book. We will not accept justice to be compromised for whatever gains nor will we condoned an institution that abet impunity because shielding impunity is worse than committing crime itself.
By Gaanun Yieh GatKuoth – Acting Chairman.
