By Lou-Nuer Leadership
Dec 05, 2016, we, the Lou Nuer community leadership in Nairobi, Kenya, are surprised and shocked by outraged accusations that we have defected to Gen. Taban Deng Gai as of 1ST December 2016. This blanket accusation against the Lou Nuer community leadership in Nairobi-Kenya is not only a white lie but a total rubbish that should not be entertained or tolerated.
Contrary to this accusation, we want to assure the general public that this propaganda is not true and does not reflect our support in Nairobi. If there are a few individuals, who want to defect to Taban-Kiir’s SPLM/SPLA faction, they do not hold any communal support. Thus we strongly condemn any general accusation that does not distinguish the community, its leadership and individuals.
On 1st December 2016, we held a PRAYER DAY for Lou Nuer KCPE & KCSE candidates, who sat for their exams this year in Nairobi Kenya, and yes we did invite Hon. Hussein Mar Nyuot to the function as a Chief Guest. We invited him as a son of Lou Nuer community and not because he holds a position in the Salva Kiir’s government.
We strongly dismiss the propaganda that were preached by Hon Hussein saying that we have invited Gen. Taban Deng Gai. The function was for Lou Nuer candidates and only the son of Lou Nuer community deserve the rights to be invited as Chief Guests. Why would Taban, who has no constituency, be invited to Lou-Nuer forum?
Lou Nuer community in Nairobi did not welcome the greeting from Gen. Taban Deng Gai as it was claimed by Hussein Mar.
Lou Nuer community in Nairobi, do also in the strongest term possible dismiss the misleading words by Hussein Mar that they are the one protecting Lou Nuer Land. We are aware that Lou Nuer Land was protected by God and the children of Lou Nuer land (THE MIGHTY WHITE ARMY) and only they will protect it.
All in all, we sincerely regret inviting Hussein Mar to the function and the leadership of Lou Nuer community in Nairobi Kenya does not support any political issues that were brought up by Mar during the function. We do apologize to the entire Lou Nuer community around the global. We did not and we will never betray you.
In the spirit of our unwavering unity, we, the entire population of Lou Nuer, still and shall continue to pay our allegiance to the leadership of SPLM/A IO under the people’s leader, Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
Finally, we want to make it clear that Lou Nuer will not tolerate any absurd decision from individual community member that might eventually reward the genocidal regime in Juba under Salva Kiir and what so called First Vice President Taban Deng Gai.
It should also be noted clearly that whoever wants to defect shall defect alone and shall continue to sail alone.
