January 25, 2018, Gen. Thomas Mabor Dhol, Section 8 division is calling upon IGAD and the international to call upon Salva Kirr and his Militia Taban Deng Gai to “stop attacking our position” in Bieh State, (Lou Nuer) in respect of COH signed in Addis Ababa last year.
This call was also echo by the Lou Nuer community leaders around the world . Below is their statement,
We, the Lou Nuer Community Leaderships in diaspora from Canada, United States, and Australia have condemned in strongest term possible the yesterday’s attack of Bieh State Area of Luony Galieak at Kuer Nyuon Tet, in the Akoba East of Waat Bieh State. Salva Kiir and his First Vice President, Taban Deng ordered the Ministry of Health, Dr. Riek Gai Kok, General Gony Biliew, and Former General of the SPLM-IO, Malou Kulang to launch an attacked at Luony Galieak, near Walgak County.
Salva Kiir’s and Taban Deng Gai’s military campaign against Bieh State/Lou Nuer areas have going on since December 2017. Their operational commander Malual Majiok and his well-equipped forces intensified their military offensive against Western Bieh State starting from Uror County areas: Yuai, Pabuong, Payai, and Pieri from two directions (Yuai & Waat).
Salva Kiir’s and Taban Deng’s next military campaign civilians within Bieh State territories are mobilizing to attack Langken of Nyirol County at any time.
While the revitalization peace agreement was just signed in Addis Ababa, now Juba regime/government led by Salva Kiir and Taban Deng are campaigning and mobilizing their troops and attacking Bieh territories. We wanted to inform the whole world i.e. IGAD, UA, UN, CTSAMM, and Troika countries (Norway, the UK, &the US) that the Juba regime of Salva Kiir and Taban Deng are on the offensive in a violation of the recently revitalization peace agreement. The world need to note that (Salva Kiir &Taban) are the same leaders who destroyed August 2015 peace agreement. They have been continuing to violate all the peace agreements signed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Now Taban Deng Gai went, armed, and mobilized Murle Youth to attack Lou Nuer of Bieh State through Uror, Akoba, and Nyirol in all directions within Bieh State. Murle Youth Have already attacked Uror County in the second week of January 2018. Notably, the First Vice President, General Taban Deng Gai has recently instructed Mulrle Community Youths to go to Bieh State in all counties to go mobilize and abduct children and women. The Murle Youths have started their operations in many parts of Lou Nuer Areas of Bieh State.
It has never happened in the entire world that “A ministry of Health” in the country campaigning to kill and displace his/her own citizens, while the ministry of health supposed to supply medical aids or humanitarian aid to those who seek medical care/attention in their respective areas.
Lastly, Lou Community citizens of Bieh State will not sit by if they are forced to defense their innocent children, women, and elderly, period!
