Oct 15, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Dismissal of Mr. Nyoat Bilieu as the legitimate Leader of Nuer Community in Uganda. I as a Latjor Community Chairperson (Eastern Jikany), Liech State Chairman, SPLM-IO Representative, Nuer elders and all church representatives don’t recognized Nyoat Bilieu’s leadership.
The Nuer Community election was held on 24-08-2015 which did not successfully entitled anyone as leader and we formed verification committee who concluded that no party won and elders would lead Nuer Community. Electoral Commission’s term has expired since September that why the verification committee was form.
By the time verification committee declared their decisions, Mr. Nyoat’s group insulting the members of the Church by throwing stone yet claiming to be leader with his secretary for legal affairs who instead use law but (he) alternatively used stones. Under Uganda constitution 1995, article 29 (c) provided right of religion (our current jurisdiction) and section 6 of Uganda penal code Act cap 20 provided that ignorant of the law does not have an excuse. ‘’Be careful of nocents’’
I urge Nuer Community in Uganda to maintain peace, being together is our motto, we divide we fall. Therefore, let us stand firm and respect our elders not to support an illegitimate leader (Mr. Nyoat).
On behalf of Latjor Community in Uganda (Eastern Jikany), we strongly rejected 28 states that were created by Mr. President Salva Kiir and we call upon all South Sudanese not to implement that statement.
