July 30, 2016, Gajaak Community in Arab Republic of Egypt are hereby condemning Amb. Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth for an ill decision he took to desert Gajaak and Nuer Community. Ezekiel Lol betrayed the people’s movement led by visionary leader Dr. Riek Machar and followed Gen. Taban Deng Gai, and the murderers of South Sudanese Communities, the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE). Amb. Gatkuoth, what you did is not only a shame to Nuer Community but to Entire South Sudanese Communities who had hope on you.
Amb. Gatkuoth if you’re really wise, you would’ve thought of how much love we have for you; if you’re truly intelligent you would’ve recalled the freedom fighters rescue mission march to Juba at the time you were detained by the same President Kiir whom you have join today. We fought and lost so many lives until you were released by President Kiir on May 2014 and when you were released our heart was overwhelmed with joy and not only the Gajaak Community but South Sudanese at large. We had a hope that one day you would bring a protégé prize into our community and indeed to the entire Nation, but now you broke our heart, you turned your back on us and decided to go back into that same swimming pool which droned thousands of our beloved ones in 2013 and still continuing up to now.
Earlier this year when you came to Egypt with Dr. Machar we warmly welcome you and felt extremely joyful. Your political reasoning about South Sudan’s past and the future was highly welcomed by most of the audience who were present on the occasion. We remember you talked of politicians betraying their principle because of higher job vacancy, you teared-up President Kiir’s administration using evidence about discrimination in Kiir’s camp. We’re wondering, what happened to you Mr. Ambassador?
A proverb said what goes around comes around. You turned your back on us today, tomorrow we will do the same thing to you. You are going to get what a traitor deserve, this war will end on you and Taban Deng Gai, this is the last war and we will win it without any doubt, eat that bloody money for now but they will not last longer because with you or without you we are winning and you will soon regret.
During the Liberation Struggle, Gajaak civil Community went to war with SPLA and thousands of them were massacre. We hope you did not forget the event of 1984 when SPLA fought Gajaak in Cie Nyajanyi Land? The event that pursued Both Gil to Lol Deng the place where you were born. For a period of good four years Gajaak Community fought SPLA, if it wasn’t Dr. Riek Machar who came to liberate us, we would have all been finished by SPLA.
Finally, as part of this press release, the Gajaak Community in Egypt condemns the illegal replacement of the First Vice President Dr. Riek Machar with Gen. Taban Deng in the strongest term possible. We don’t know who Taban Deng Gai is, we only acknowledge our one and only visionary leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon. The Chairman and the Commander in Chief of the SPLM/A-IO as our FVP of the Republic of South Sudan. No matter how big the storm is, we standstill firmly behind him, the man who promised us with democracy and fair treatment in South Sudan.
