S. Sudanese leader accused of making Dinka people suffer

October 12, 2017 (JUBA)- The Anglican Archbishop of South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal province, Moses Deng Bol has protested the manner in which the president has been personally handled the situation in the county, saying his “inability” has led his ethnic Dinka to be viewed as complicities in the war by other ethnic communities.

Bol, who also doubles as the Bishop of Wau diocese, claimed President Salva Kiir, his army generals and political allies associated with the Juba regime were the country’s problems, not the ethnic Dinka.

“Dinkas are equally suffering just like other communities in South Sudan. But many Dinkas are either afraid or initially thought it is better to approach our President privately and inform him of failures of his Government which is always better than public criticism,” said Bol.

The religious leader said Kiir is often blocked by a small group who do not want anybody with different views to meet the former, which, he claimed, has made people from other communities to conclude that all the Dinkas support all the actions of the Juba government.

“[But] Now many Dinkas are coming out publicly because the hope of advising the President privately is simply not working and the hatred against the Dinka community is increasing”, stressed Bol.

The Archbishop said he and several other religious leaders had sought audiences with the president to share with him their views on how situations in the country could be improved, but were blocked by “elites” who did not want President Kiir to benefit from their views.

Last month, the South Sudan leader publicly said he regretted the suffering nearly four years of civil war has inflicted on the people.

"I am not happy. I am hurting inside. How can I be happy when I see my people suffering?" Kiir told the state-owned television (SSBC).

The South Sudanese leader, did not, however, hint on how his administration intends to end the conflict, which has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions into neighbouring nations.

Critics, however, described Kiir’s remarks as “crocodile” feelings and compassion, saying the solution to end the conflict was in his hand.

At least 7.5 million of the estimated 12 million South Sudanese will need assistance in 2017, the United Nations humanitarian respond plan showed.

Conflict broke out in South Sudan in mid-December 2013 following months of internal wrangling in the ruling party (SPLM) over leadership, vision of the party, reforms and democracy. The three-year-old war has killed thousands of people and displaced millions as refugees to neighboring countries. Also, an estimated 1.9 million others are internally displaced in the country, with thousands are sheltering at U.N protection of civilians’ sites in parts of the war-torn country.

    The Dinka people should not run away from responsibility they assumed right from when Mengistu and Ghadafi of Ethiopia and Libya respectively empowered them to own guns allegedly with which to fight for justice and equality in the then Sudan that ended to be used to kill innocent people in the then Southern Region of Sudan. Terekeka, Chukudum, Torit and Wau region saw the worst —To continue

      atrocities caused by Dinka soldiers in their search for Dinka supremacist country. Under the guise of South Sudan nationalism we got our country. But how truthful is the country ours? Dinka got every thing within reach of this country’s independence. 90% of Scholarship abroad went to Dinka youth, the army, police, prisons, security and judiciary became a Dinka monopoly. how is this— To continue

    Wise remarks Bishop! I agree with you, but that is too late. Now the work of wise Dinka leaders have started and it should be quick. Enough is enough.
    I have been saying that all Dinka were not consulted when JCE was formed. The group knows itself!!!

    Rev.Moses Deng Bol, you are doing more damage to the Dinka nation by such reckless words from your ignorant self. If you agree that Dinka people are innocent and suffering like the rest of South Sudanese then who are these criminals attacking and targeting them that you are silent on or afraid to mention their names? Self blame is cowardice and dangerous to say the least.

    Rev.Moses Deng Bol you are idiot and seem not understand where we were, where we were, where we are now, and where we are going. Arabs made it a government policy/strategy to blackmail the Dinka nation because of their numerical superiority in the then united Sudan as a way of preventing them rise to power and give South Sudan a political leverage. The Dinka people were being killed in Thousands

      Lenin Bull,

      Please stop deception here!! The Arabs killed South Sudanese in its entirety. Not only Dinka suffered much from the islamic sword of Jallaba. The worst was in Equatoria during the war. Equatorians suffered a lot more from both Dinka and Arabs in the history of South Sudan. What Dinka is doing is nothing other than erecting pillars of tribal apartheid in the country through brutality.

        Do you realise just ironic it is for you to condemn someone else for being deceptive when deception is prdcisely what you are employing? The Equatorians did not suffer more than the Dinka during the war. Equatoria had a dozen or so tribal militias fighting for Khartoum... just like the Nuer.

          You are not our spokesperson to deny what we practically went through during the years of war right from 1955. You know nothing about us. In our lands the unfortunate mad people, weak grand parents were not spared by both your soldiers and Jallaba. Your are enemies of non dinkas that have an agenda of occupying our land through brutal killing of our people period using state resources.

      Lenin, which single day in African history did anyone ever kill MOSQUITOES for a FUN? The answer is never Of-course but only if they/it attack(s) or pose a threat to the hosting party. Now be honest Lenin & spell "their obvious inhuman actions" they involved into that costed them their lives. Note that other tribes in SS don’t Kill humans for Fun but for a ’death like’ provocation.

    The Arabs used Riek Machar and Lam Akol in 1991 to infiltrate and destroy the liberation movement from within and millions of innocent Dinka civilians were callously killed( combined thousands killed in Atar, Akoka, Baliet, Bor,Panrieng, Biemnhom, Khorflus, Gogrial/Twic Mayardit, Rumbek, Yirol,etc). Then Dr.John Garang was the bad leader.Now Dinka nation is being killed because some guys want

    Now innocent Dinka women, children, elderly, etc are being killed because some South Sudanese want to take leadership by force from President Salva Kiir!! This is the weirdest logic I have ever encountered in the whole of my life. Just look the sheer size of the Dinka nation if latter after they have been targeted and many of them killed like it seems to be the case today,

      Linenbull,
      Deng is trying his level best to educate non Dinka that it is the problem of all tribe but you are here disproving it to him that it is Dinka Vs Non Dinka. Which one is which? Remember, Dinka are problem to all tribes in SS. No one even one to have Dinka neighbor imagine. If you continue worst is going to happen. All tribe will cease to buy, sell any thing to Dinka.

    The Dinka mighty warriors in fact million warriors target the tribe of the next president of South Sudan, how will South Sudan look like or how will that tribe feel? I know the Dinka Nation will never do that because of being the most civilized, patriotic nation in South Sudan but what those criminal rebels are doing to innocent Dinka civilians is satanic, unpatriotic, backward/self-defeatism.

    Finally, I advise Rev.Moses Deng Bol to be proud of being a Dinka just like anyone can be of his or her tribe and not turn to self-blame strategy as a way of appeasing the criminals that have gone amok and rabid-dog mad in South Sudan. If you don’t like my advice, then take a rope and hang yourself. Will you blame GOD for creating you a Dinka? Idiot!!

This is not true. Equatorians refused to join SPLA/SPLM through the advice of Arabs and their stooges in South Sudan like James Tumbura, Peter Chirilo, Clement Wani, etc

    Rev:Deng Bol,
    I personally agree with you on your explanation. It is true that Top politician group themselves to loot South Sudan Resources in name of Dinka. The problem here was that you Dinka afraid to approach Kiirimninal Mayardit and you make this hate against Dinka goes beyond repair. Now it needs those of Bona Malual, Thiik Ring (JCE) to come publicly in challenge of Kiir.

    A paraphrased quote from Martin Niemollar "First they came for the Dinka, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Dinka; Then they came for the Nueer, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Nueer; Then they came for the Baris, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Bari; ...Then they came for me - and there was none left to speak for me."

    Dear Bishop, the atrocities committed against Equatorians is beyond anything. Thank you for that concern, but Equatorian must become a nation of itself and share common boarders with Jenge. Otherwise, someone should give the reason why violence against other ethnic communities? Why? Why? Why?
