Nov 3, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- With peace in the corner in the words of Hon Makuei Lueth who is the mouthpiece of Kiir ‘s government and with things looking more uncertain, it is keenly noted with great concern that the Dinka families are on daily bases boarding the planes going to Khartoum due to the fear of the unknown.

In a casual and informal conversation with my intimate dinka friend,he opined that the reason might be due to the deteriorating security and economic situation in the country and therefore see it wise to go to Khartoum to seek for a long life with good living standard .He opined to me that Dinka are leaving the country due to the trust lost between the Dinka and the Nuer following the merciless Juba carnage meted on the Nuer by the Dut kubeny,Kiir tribal army on the 15th ,16th ,17th and 18th of December 2013. It is believed that in the event that the conflict breaks out(God forbid !) between these two tribes,the outcome would be worse because the Nuer would avenge their loved ones massacred with out any sign of remorse.

The other matter of concern is believed to be the fact that the power in the country was concentrated, with out any semblance of shame,in the hand of one ethnic group.The dinka elites, as they call themselves.With this power,looted the resources and the wealth of the country.They use it to hire mercenaries and purchase weapons to wage war against the Nuer using all sophisticated weapons on the planet including cluster bombs which had been banned since Vietnam – Gulf war.

Sources from Addis attributed the delay in thrashing out these security issues to this fear.The other case in point is the release of the AU report which has unexpectedly taken every body aback .The report confirmed it that there was nothing found to amount to a coup which has become a popular song of the government and that there was a massacre organized by the State to cleanse the ethnic Nuer.

Senior dinka Generals and ministers are named in the report.Other admitted that the Nuer were indeed targeted.These are signs of the last day for the anticpated dinka kindom and coalition to unravel.With the Berlin wall falling,the dinka are left with no choice except to leave the country to seek refuge.In conclusion, I implore the two bigger tribes forgive and forget the past, embrace peaceful coexistence and promote harmony despite all that happened .However, Am concluding with the warning that although our dinka brothers run away with illegally acquired wealth,the long arm of the law will not leave them.They must be made to account.

      Indeed the mercenaries left South Sudan. So let us South Sudanese deal with our own problem. We are capable to handle the situation without the mercenaries. Let us see who is a really man in South Sudan….ha ha ha ha. No worries we will resolve our problem. Let us see now who is stronger without mercenaries. We need peace because the civil war has destroyed country.

        What weere you thinking before bringing the mercenaries to get involved in your own problem.

        You knew your defeat was imminent ofcourse. The let’s solve out problem nonsense ourselves never crossed your mind?

        You can’t talk tough because there is no more war to continue but implementation of the CPA2 that was the only reason your mercenaries left.

        Your taught talk would have made more sense had you agree to sent back the UPDF and still continue war and not signed the peace agreement. The logic of tough talk after the war is actually ended is stupid.

        Let’s see who is really man in South Sudan? Again the war is over stupid.

        We need peace because the civil war destroyed our country..?

        Again your giving another message better than the first one.

        Your a confused pathetic ding-batt. Just go tell your coward Jaang civilians to stop leaving the country that peace is signed and no more war unless the Jaang Council of Elders are planning for more and they Jaang citizens know it too.

        What would be the purpose of signing and letting your mercenaries leave, leaving you cowards without daddy Museveni to protect you when you start another trouble.

        The Oppositions will have air defence capabilities next time and Uganda will be flying in dangerous sky.

    That Dinkas are migrating towards Northern Sudan, is non other than lies, malicious wishes and buggery! we can now, see ‘the warrior Mr. Modesto Richard, is living in Gulu- Uganda while the war is ongoing, and he is still claiming the false facts, of the ‘would-be migrants’, while in foreign country. Shits!
