April 16, 2019 (JUBA) - Peter Gatdet Yak, Chairman of South Sudan United Movement (SSUM) died Monday in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

Concordant sources in Khartoum said the South Sudanese general died after a heart attack on Monday.

Yak, was one of the South Sudanese opposition leaders who signed the Revitalized Peace Agreement in September 2018.

He as many other South Sudanese opposition have been residing in Khartoum, as the peace partners are still negotiating the implementation pre-transitional period arrangements ahead of the transitional period next May.

The SPLM-IO led by Riek Machar issued a condolence message extending “heartfelt condolence to his family and relatives. Our sympathies are also with the countless family, friends of late Gen. Peter Gatdet Yak and the people of South Sudan”.

Also South Sudanese army spokesperson Lul Ruai Koang wrote on his Facebook page “Two Giants have fallen, Generals Peter Gadet Yak and Gabriel Tangiye” who died recently.

During the first years of the civil war in South Sudan, Yas was part of the SPLM/A under the leadership of Marchar but he split later and established his SSUM.

    Thank God let him die for peace to come to South Sudan. He has done massacre more than any human being on earth. For your information Peter Gatdet has rebelled 13 times on his lifetime. Because of his corruption he has more than 30 wives.I do always call people who praise him coward because they do that for the fear of retaliation from Peter Gatdet. His soul will never reach the kingdom of God.

      I am not surprised and I have been telling people to rather commit suicide by themselves then excepting to live with Jenge and talk peace. the boys have been send out there for mission, get it clear please IO. Riek will follow after this since he abandoned the fate of innocent young men who followed him during tribal rebellion in 2013. Imagine they have killed the real man who made what IO is toda

        Dr. Riek, if feel the post of first vice president is what you fought for all those period, Please begin to learn now.
        you are not exceptional. forget about the fucking Khartoum peace and stand for people not position. Jenges will finish all your intellectuals fuck you off. Taban deng, Ruay Koang etc at high risk. I know jenge more then they know themselves.

          Trust me comrades, the best way to live with jenge is the life style between Israel and Palestinians and to end of the earth. Every body should run mad is the bottom line. No peace and even don’t care any more it. Somalia is fine without peace, we can equally do the same.

        You cannot compare patriotic generals with killer so called Peter Gatdet. Don’t spend your time to pray for him he is already in hell. If you will follow the footstep of murderer Gatdet Yaka you will die very simple like him.

          I never been a Nuerwew and I will not be Nuerwew forever,Am doubting whether you are true Nuer, otherwise you should be Nuerwew or Thonaliak. True Nuer can not celebrate Nuer son death like that.

    Who’s next? I blame this to the Nuer food loving attitudes that’s leads to the splitting of the Opposition movement. Divide and concur is now the game adopted from Arab North by the JCE. This is another way on how they will rule SS for 100years as stated by the secret memo. Nuer can be lowered by food and material things and they will be ok wth that. Sad.

      Peter Gadet was a true Nuer who although sometimes unpredictable but NEVER allowed himself to be bullied around by jienges. He was not a nyagat. Now these evil jienges must be smiling and hoping, once the true Nuer Riek also passes on, only nyagateen who can be pocketed will remain. This is nightmare for Naath nation. RIP comrade.

        There might be some who are smiling, but only if they didn’t know that South Sudan belong to all of us and anyone who want to be a South Sudanese. Gadet ventured on many irresponsible courses in lift, yet he was still one of us. We must learn from his mistakes and embrace each other so that South Sudan can be called a nation; a nation that can be influential in the region.

          We must leave behind Nuer-ism, Dinka-ism, Equatoria-ism, and embrace each other like Rwandan have done. We mus embark on course of having strong economic power in the region by hatred and laziness and get to work. We are Landlock country, which means, we must be fierce both militarily, and economically for our country to survive. Yet, all is impossible without unity among us.

              Paul,
              This is the most stupid and ridiculous appeal at all. After jienges have miserably failed to turn SS into a "Jiengdom", you want us Equatorians to abandon Equatorianism? No. No. No. We still havent shown jienges our shitholes yet. Pope Francis kissed jienge feet, jienges must kiss Equatorian asses. No peace till you vacate our lands, then we talk. Otherwise. No.

              Only Equatorian stooges and jienge puppets will ever think of SS unity. Was it not Equatorians that started the struggle in the end jienges hijacked it? Was it not jienges who boasted they started the SPLA in 1983 and the rest had to acknowledge their rule? Was it not the jienges who later turned SS into a "huge open luak" after fooling the rest to vote for referendum? Watchout man!

                Paul,
                If you are a jienge, then prepare your exit from Equatoria cuz neither your grandfather nor grandmother was buried anywhere in Equatoria. If you are a jienge, you know revenge is part of your culture and we Equatorians must adopt your attitude, if we are to survive. Bashir thought he was untouchable amd immortal, today he is history. Kiirminal will also go and he must prepare his....

                  burial in his home village. We shall dig him out, should he be buried in Bariland or Equatoria. Equatoria is not jienge burial ground. Equatoria land cant be good and its people bad. No. We didnt go to jiengelands either. So what the f**k? You want to implement your R-ACISS, then do it in your place.

        I concur with you on some points, Gatdet is true hero but the word Nyagat has no room at all.

    Peter Gardet killed so many South Sudanese civilians and generals. He killed Nyuon Bany, Ajak-Ayen, Abraham Jongroor Deng, and he also had a hand in the killing of Kerbino kuany-nyin Bol, though he was not directly involved. The hardened tribal warlord has done enough damage and it is time for him to go! Rest in hell, Gardet...

    ...the man was an animal, which is what his name implies. The word Yak in Nuer language is a hyena. Now he’s getting a state burial, WTF! They killed George Athor (Gorji) and many others and they never give them state burial. Crap!

        Malakal Simon,
        I am not celebrating nor am I mourning his death. I am just giving part of Gardet’s eulogy. There is no cause for you ask God to heal me. I am not crazy if that is what you implied. In fact, if there is anyone who is so mad with Gardet now, it would be his creator, and I think Mr. Yak will be stopped at different checkpoints in the purgatory for questions.
