Brig. Lul Ruai, a misfortune to the proclaimed ‘fearless Lou’

Juba – He was flaming up like a wild fire, rocked the nations with academically drafted press statements, fluent English and his poor but understandable Arabic; Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, a man his people was proud of through out the year of 2014, abandoned his popularity camp (SPLA-IO), rejoin the govt and forge a revolutionary name to make his way up to Panorama Hotel in Juba.

“Seeing Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang doing the job he does best make me think about his compensation package which is: Sleep deprivation, family and friends disconnection -all for the love of South Sudan. His two phones go off simultaneously every single minute!” One of Lul’s sympathizers stated last year.

Now inside Panorama, “Lul can easily disappoint you with ugly comments” ~ an observer (close to Lul) told Wangdunkon Media, continuing that “he has becomes so confusing. Honestly”

“To be honest with you, Lul is a misfortune to us as community, whatever ugly he does and have been saying, I really feels the shame and the embarrassment indeed. People looks at him as our sons which is it, but I wish he wasn’t” ~ He further utter.

On this day, when tenth of thousands innocent Nuer were massacred, followed by a Countrywide revenge killing where many other ethnicity were killed including Dinka and Shilluk in Malakal and Bor, the South Sudanese are honoring the day, no meat eating! all in ‘black mood’ and and in ‘black wears!’

But for Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, “Rainy season is over and dry one is around the corner. SSRA Forces (his proclaimed forces) are in combat mood, offensive posture and ready for any eventuality”

“Accept Peace or bite the bullet” … (And no RIP to those who have already bite the bullet Brig. Lul?)

Coming up then from no where, no previous strong military or political background, Lul did the job well for the SPLA-IO. Thus, perhaps he thought all was a bean-shewing; He thought he was heavy enough to weight equals with his BOSS! Machar, and could eventually do it best probably in a Chairmanship position.

Sooner than later, Lul found out that his Boss is too heavy to equalize with, maybe, he thought, Governorship was going to work well for him and suit him. So, people are still waiting to see Bieh State raising its flag under the Leadership of the to-be H.E Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, the Governor of Bieh State! … hold on, that title is not his yet… keep on waiting.


Wangdunkon Media send condolences to all the families of the victims lost to this war from the 15th of December 2013 till today. Rest in Peace fellows.
