WHAT DO DEC15, 2013 MEAN TO YOU?
November 13, 2017, To provide you with its brief meaning, Dec15,2013 is a ‘Genocide’ committed against innocents Nuer tribe of South Sudan. For those who may ask, who committed a ‘Genocide’ against Nuer ethnic group? The answer is, Salva Kiir the president of South Sudan whom was voted on to the power by all tribes including Nuer.
WHY DO WE CALLED IT GENOCIDE?
Because of the atrocities below:
WHO WERE KILLED?
• Gatluak, Gach, Ran, Gatwech, Jal, Nyabora, Nyaduel, Nyatut, Nyaluak and etc. • Door-to-Door searches • killing was based on their ethnicity • elderly people were killed • Women were killed • children were killed • Government officials were killed • Church leaders were killed • Everyone was killed. HOW DID THEY KILLED THEM (what types of atrocities were committed)? • Mass killings • Individual killings • Chopping body parts into pieces • Forced a wife to eat her husband’s flesh • Cut off a pregnant women’s belly, in order to kill her unborn baby simply because that baby is a Nuer even if it hasn’t been born. • Throwing babies and their mother into a burning fire • castrating boys • Raping Women, girls and young girls (by using stick-wood and metals). • One has killed his wife and children simply because his wife is Nuer.
WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE KILLING; AND WHAT DO THEY USED TO KILLED THEM? The so called presidential guards (Tiger unit)who are a national army were involved, most of government officials, Army generals and MPs were involved. They were using heavy machinery guns including tanks and gunships. Also using tow truck to tow Nuer dead bodies away into the river and located mass graves.
Nueri I am hereby, to re-inform you one again you with the above mentioned atrocities Salva Kiir and his JCE have done to us. Why why why why……………. the president that we have voted on power did this to us. We are innocents who have done nothing wrong. And for those confused Nuer people who are singing their rubbish song that “Nuer were killed because of Dr. Riek Machar”, you are wrong and you rubbish. Dr. Riek himself is an innocent person and also a victim of South Sudan’s struggles. Remember that, South Sudan is for all of us (64 tribes), and as long as you are a South Sudanese citizen you are eligible to contest for any position. Salva Kiir cannot kills us because of Dr. Riek’s declaration for presidentship.
My people, in the strongest term possible I have condemned Salva Kiir in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and every month, every week, everyday and every minute. Nevertheless, I will be condemning him until my last day in this world, simply because “I WILL NEVER FORGET DEC15 2013”. Therefore, I am calling upon the International Community such as IGAD, UN, US and TRIOKA to review the crimes against humanity which Salva Kiir has committed in South Sudan.
