Wangdunkon Media: April 5, 2015 (Opinion) – We have waited enough and all our rights have been violated by SalvaKirr. For the better or worse we rather be on the rebellion for the next generation to come. I am here by declaring my position in the upcoming peace talk and any future peace talk within South Sudanese community. Today I am announcing that I declared I will never accept any peace with Salva Kirr. I will rather, therefore, see no future at all in South Sudan because that is what Salva kirr started it then with peace that will include Salva Kirr Mayardit who killed my people, the Nuer people and the people of South Sudan.
Dear South Sudanese people,
Our South Sudan and its history tell us that: 1881 Unsuccessful attempts to conquer the South Sudan by the Mahdists, 1901 The Nuer and Azande wage armed resistance against colonial rule, killing British officers and soldiers and the Governor of Bahr el Ghazal; 1918 Sunday becomes official day of worship in South Sudan, replacing Friday, which was introduced by Muslim Gellaba slave raiders; 1930 Declaration of South Sudan Policy, South Sudan as culturally and racially distinct, would eventually develop as a separate territorial and political entity or be integrated into the British East Africa and in 1940 Complete elimination of Arab and Moslem influence in South Sudan.
Just to give you a few examples, all those wars were fought by all South Sudanese and with one heart, love and most of all within mind the brotherhoods and sisterhoods. For the hard works of our people, South Sudan became independent in July 2009
In December 15, 2013, SalvaKirrMayardit choses Dinkasim over South Sudan by killings the Nuer people and divided our country into Jang and Nuer. Dr. MajakAgoot tells us “that the body of killers was a body of irregulars recruited in two districts of Bahr el Gazal by the current Chief of Staff who was then Governer of Northern Bahr al Gazal and ran the party branch in the district. He started recruiting this force in 2012. According to MajakDagot, then Deputy Minister of Defense, “we did not pay for it from the Ministry of Defense, though they tried to get us to pay from our budget. The force was 15,000 strong, and was recruited in one area. Among people who gave roughly the same account, numbers varied, from a low of 3,000 to a high of 15,000” according to a drafted African Union of Inquiry on South Sudan.
Maj. Gen. Mac Paul, former Director of Military Intelligence: Organized killings of civilians began the night of the 16 Forces fighting in the barracks were defeated – house to house. It began in a place called 107 a “Secret mobilization had happened before this that we were not aware of. It started earlier in November. Elders met and chose mobilizers at this meeting, to protect the president. The meeting was chaired by former Chief Justice, Ambrose RiingThiik. This force was called ‘Rescue the President [Dot kebeny]. Almost 70% of anyone from Bahr el Ghazal was mobilized in this, in their thousands. Those who remained in Juba were now mainly from Bahr el Ghazal. The elders coordinated with the President. The financing came from his office. RiekMachar was aware of this. He was doing his own organizing. On the 16th, some of the civilians got guns, either from National Security or Presidential Guard. I began to see civilians putting on uniform with a gun. This was a result of the mobilization the elders had done. Elders were moving from community to community. The committee of elders was 17 in number. This committee of elders moved around Bahr el Ghazal, talked to their sons in the army. They called the tank crew commanders in Bentiu who were all from Bahr el Ghazal and asked them to disarm others in the command.”
For this reasons, SalvaKirr chooses Dinkaism over you, the people of South Sudan.
To International community:
We the Nuer people are human being too; the Nuer people are created as an equal as like any other human being on earth. They have a right to be valued as the human being based on 1948 UN Human Right declaration that:the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 General Assembly resolution 217 A (III)
Article 1, All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Article 2, Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Article 3, everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Article 4, No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
Article 5, No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
Article 6, everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
Article 7.All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.

Article 9.No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
Article 10.Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him
The UNITED NATION declared and said that if all these rights are violated by any tyranny government “Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law”
Our rights, as the Nuer people have been subjected to these very rights. Therefore, any peace that will included SalvaKirr who organized the massacred of our people will never be accepted as long as there is a single Nuer person live on this world.
To all Nuer people,
Enough is enough; we are God’s people too. Now we know who killed our people. On the December 11, 2013 SalvaKirrhas ordered the disarmament of Nuer in the Presidential Guard that triggered the all war. This is where all started in which I refused to go any further to explained how my people were killed. All evidences are there for the public consumption.
Never in history of the mankind, has a brother had to be told to eat the dead bodies of brothers. According to African Commission of inquiry reports, SalvaKirr’s Militias and Soldiers in December 2013 killed the Nuer civilians and soldiers and asked other to eat the dead bodies of their brothers. Therefore, SalvaKirr is an enemy of the human souls and dignity, he deserve in hell and have no place in our community.
I am therefore urging you to look beyond; in this world no one will give you your rights unless you fight for it. Thus, to fight for our rights that were violated by SalvaKirr, it must start denying SalvaKirr himself. SalvaKirr will never stand in front of our suffered community ever again as long as there is a single Nuer
