July 21, 2016, in a press statement seen by Africans Press Gen. Peter Gatdet warns Salva Kirr hat he has “the confirmed report from the SPLM political Bureau and Dinka council of elders that Dr. Riek Machar would be relieved from first vice president and Taban Deng Gai to be appointed as first vice president.”he said
He said that, “Taban Deng Gai was behind a coup which was planned against Machar assassination or removed from his position.” and that, “the entire Nuer community should condemn the recent killing in Juba masterminded by the government and a group of opportunist who are enemy of peace and stability in south Sudan.”
Gen. Peter Gatdet also accused Taban and Lol Gatkuoth as they joined “G10 under Taban and Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth” however, the G10 “are opportunists who kill the Nuer in a cool blood in a pretext of power to gained political position.”
The questions are that
1. Will there be a peace in South Sudan if Taban is appointed as first vice president?
2. Does Taban consult Nuer community leaders and community elders to be first vice president?
3. Will SPLM/A stoppage Nuer killing if Taban become first vice president?
4. If government did so, Will their agreement last anymore?
Otherwise government declares war against Nuer community if Taban is to be appointed and we are ready for war.
As one of a community leader and entire Nuer community especially those in UNMISS camp in Juba and Diaspora do oppose the appointment of Taban Deng Gai to the position of first vice president.
Even Tutkew Gatluak who denied that Nuer are not killed in Juba, his Uncle’s Son whose name Maliah Kun Wan Pech was killed in recent war in Juba and is yet unburred.
I am urging IGAD and International community to rescue the suffering people under Slava Kiir,s Tribal leadership
