We, the Gajiok Community in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia do hereby declared our position concerning the recent events that took place in our nation.
It has comes into our attention that illegitimate president of South Sudan appointed former Chief Negotiator Gen. Taban Deng Gai as the First Vice President of the Republic of south Sudan which is a clear violations of the August Peace Agreement. We officially rejected the appointment of Gen. Taban Deng Gai and we as a community don’t recognized that appointment and we will never supports it. Our position is very clear from day one, we are loyal to First Vice President, Chairman and Commander-In-Chief of the SPLM/A-IO Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
As a community we have decided to stop associating ourselves with all kinds of people demonstrating supports to Fake Frist Vice President. Any division among ourselves or Nuer in particular encourage by the so called Wew Politicians will never be entertain anymore. Days are gone when we succumb to men and women whose interest doesn’t represent our community but rather allowing us to fight each other. This is not politics any longer but betrayal.
Therefore, the Gajiok Community in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia refused and entirely rejects Gen. Taban Deng and his associates. We shall no longer be part or in support of anyone who is there to create more division among the Nuer so that we remain weak forever. Ge. Taban Dengs aim is to create fight among the Nuer and this act will not tolerate anymore.
We are still loyal to people’s leader, the First Vice President of the republic of South Sudan, Dr. Riek Machar Teny in will and in spirit. Kiir must go no matter what and how long it take.
Gajiok Community in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
