December 20, 2011 (JUBA) – The South Sudanese rebel leader and renegade general, George Athor, has been killed, announced the country’s Vice-President Riek Machar Teny in a press conference held in the capital Juba today.

Earlier in the day, Athor was reported to be under siege by South Sudan’s army, SPLA, in Morobo country in Central Equatoria state.

According to Teny, Athor was killed yesterday, Monday, in Morobo near the capital, Juba.

The circumstances of his alleged death are unclear at the moment but Athor’s rebel group on Sunday claimed it had aborted an attempt to kill him.

One of Athor’s wives told Sudan Tribune she suspects her husband may have been killed because she lost contact with him since Monday.

Athor has been leading a rebellion against the government of South Sudan since he defected from the SPLA in 2010 after he was announced to be the loser of gubernatorial elections in Jonglei State, where he stood as an independent candidate.

His rebellion has been one of the biggest security threats that faced South Sudan since it became an independent country this year.

Hundreds of people have been killed this year in clashes between Athor’s men and the SPLA.

                  Rest in peace Late Gen Athor, your death is not the final destiny to rebellion unless Kiir and his SPLM party learn to try everybody in his Govt equally rather than listening to some and ignored the rest.
                  Athor would have not rebelled if transparency and equality were in place.You Mr. X celebrate his death and make sure yours is underway.Good that he died in operation than our Bros.rest in peace.

              Arai Baka is an Ethiopian word! Anyway assassinating SPLA/M bush leaders in a lawless and insecure country like South Sudan isn’t going to be hard for the rebel or other enemies of SPLA/M bush leaders! We know where they stay when they come to USA or Europe or eastern African countries and we will easily target them and mark my words! If you really opt for this option of..

                if you opt for this option of assassinating others leaders, then there will be no leader left in RoSS! thank God you fill SS up with suicide bombers from Somali Al shabab fighters and yet you are running your mouths against Muslims and Islam and with your SPLA/M leaders normalising diplomatic ties with with Israel,the public enemy number one of both Arab and Islamic world!

                  Sooner, you will be struggling fighting an invisible enemy like American-Brits predicaments or scenarios in both Iraq and Afghanistan! Thank, God your blind SPLA/M leaders are good of making more enemies than friends! Sooner the whole South Sudan will be fully engulfed by the fire of tribal and sectarian wars! your days is numbered!

                    Is your pathetic logic telling me that we should we hate John Garang de Mabour for creating this mess we are going through right now in RoSS with his stupid war that killed about 2.5 million innocent S Sudanese lives, if not why not? tell me who didn’t kill anyone from all those bunchs of criminals you are calling leaders in RoSS? Do you want us to hate and kill them for their crimes?

          • 20 December 2011 20:22, by Aristotle

            George Athor body must be buried in a secret location, the best way for criminals killed in 2011,when you buried somebody respectfully,then you support his idea,he must be treated like Qaddafi and Osama,

            Now Salva and his friends have to ask themselves, what can be done different in the next election to avoid blood shed.

            More rebellion and bloodshed are eminent if independent candidates are treated like thieves and not allowed to use public media such as radios for campaign. More problems if the current constitution is kept as it is. Freedom we fought for cannot be achieved with this constitutio

        • 20 December 2011 17:48, by Gentle Deng

          Any one condemning the death of George Athor is a true son of the soil. His death will not be compared to the death of other rebels. He holds unbreakable record in the big book of SPLM/A history of arm struggle cause which took 22 years of missery and agony. Why kill him after his faithfulness, loyalty and wholehearted efford? His death is the opposite of what many people think now, it is not the

But people cant be rewarded by killing people! he wasnt got into that position because he was good killer! killing has to have boundaries!he deserv that one, he deserv to died! if you suport him,go n ask God,n tell him ppl he kil

          If the news of George Athor Deng are be true then all those rebels will follow the suit. They are being watched by the lives of our 2.5 million brothers and sisters who died in the 21 years of struggle.

          I know the death of our fellow human being shouldn’t celebrate according to South Sudanese culture, but the life of UGLY BUSTARD will not be compared with the lives lost in the needless war

ATHOR GOT KILLED IN EQUATOIA IS SIMPLY BECAUSE WE IN EQUATORIA ARE THE TRUE SONS OF SOUTH SUDAN OUR BOYS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE FIGHTINGG IN ABYEI WHILE THOSE BORN IN ABYEI ARE CAMPS, IN EQ.

          For your information, Bahr el Ghazal is not an easy place to go and fight with people. bahr el Ghazal people are friendly and humble, but they have bad temper beyond control if someone touch them. So my friends, don’t put red pepper into your eyes.

            Athor Deng would be remembered for 1990s Bravery and protection that he made for civilians and few soldiers without ammuntions, but what has done to his people whom he protected by then, is really stupidity and madness like leader of Lybia who transformed desert to new modern important city in the world and then after he spoil his legendairy at the end.

          Can you ignore the so called Bolman, he is the enemy within who pretend to be from us. There is no thing called Bar el Gazal community, prehaps he meant Bar el Gazal region which comprised of many tribes. If u want to talks about Dinka Communities for instance, Agar community, Alaip community, Atot community, Renk community, Aweil community or Malual community, Bor c.etc

The approach to such people who think like you and George Athor must simply own the grave in that way and you are the next person to own the grave after your uncle.

However, we suppose to captured him, but he fully resistance us. So we do not have other choose. However, I have question. How come Khartuom fly Athor to the boarder of Congo and Southern Sudan? THerefore, He took only Three Land cruisers with some solider

        @SSLA Supporter, Who told u that George Athor is a martyr? I believe God the Almighty Father and Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ will NOT accept him in the Kingdom of God. George Athor was a greedy person being confused by Khartoum Islamist group of Omer Bashir to killed his own people. If I were to be in BOR I will not attend his funeral. But let’s pray to God the Almighty Father to guide his fami

          Mr. you claim that al Bashier and the North Arab and your own brothers are the enemy, I really feel that you have some kind of insecurity element going on, how come S. Sudan been only independent for 6 month, and all ready got so much vacations’ which you call enemies!!! this vacations’ are result of many decades of tribal hearted and selfishness,

          • 20 December 2011 22:57, by Alan_Bard

        What dreams are you still looking for with your George Athor? Is there another dream more than the dream Southern sudanese fought against Northern Arabs for 55 years. You will be considered as a silly person in your live. If george still alive and goes to neighbour countries, nobody will give him spoon leave alone gun.

Are you fighting to get historical dreams, political dreams, economic dreams or social dreams? which dreams is it? You don’t believe the dreams of 9 July, 2011? think b4 u come on line with nonesnse. however, if u still premature in mind, better gets raid of it.

      Shame on Athor, he was not jobless and we had fully recognize him and his fight for freedom. But brought people hearts of Nuers who never satisfied with anything..We should give him a proper burial, Nuers we will kill you too..Better stop your non sense. If you think your better give your self time to proof yourself..No war please, if you want to be voted into and office, make that people know.

    • 20 December 2011 16:06, by Alier42

      It is very very sad.they murderers from warrap state have done their work.Athor is to blame his death, there is no point that he should leave his stronge hold and go to morobo where there is no security.otherwise his life rest in peace but in pices.it is something a dead can not do ,you can not go to the middle of your enemy without men power,it was bad day to Athor.

        You are absolutely right brother! Martyr General Gorge Athor Deng Dut (God bless and accept his soul) shouldn’t have left his stronghold in Kurflus region and moved to an insecure place like the so-called Morobo, simply because SS/Sudan is still divided along tribal lines, the vrery reason why John Garang fought whole of his losing war kiiled that 2.5 million innocent live in S Sudan!

        • 20 December 2011 18:29, by SSLA/M Supporter

          That is why Dr Reik Machar choise to declare his split from Garang in Nasir of eastern Nuerland its populations doubles that of western Nuer of unity state just to find protect he needed by then! And also it’s the same now for various rebels in Darfur, South Kordofan and southern Blue Nile! That is why SSLA/M battles SPLA/M inside Nuerland borders unity! it’s dangerous to operate outside ur box!

        Generation,
        I warn you that you are following a dangerous mindset. The best thing that you, and other Athor supporters should do is join the rest of South Sudanese in promoting development in our new nation. Athor, if confirmed dead, was for sure a great SPLA fighter but he fell to the tricks of Bashir who used him to sabotage S. Sudan. Turning against your people is a curse in itself.

      • 21 December 2011 04:25, by vision

        The next step is to bring David Yau Yau and his criminals group into justice. Athor contribute to this independent while Yau Yau was a poor academic primary school level who never attended any secondary school. The important citizens are not supposed to be killed by dog such as David Yau Yau. I know him in Kakuma, he was in Kadugle primary school. Teach him a lessen.

    When you resort to anti-competitive behaviours, chances are high that you gonna either win or lose. The massacre that has been going on in Jonglei state is solely on uncle Athor and he deserves to go! I read his thorny demands at Nairobi meeting and his media briefing after the failed talk.

    Finally a relief to innocent civilians of Jonglei state and RSS. To give a devil his dues, Athor was a hero before 2010 elections, in fact he was more patriotic than most of our current leaders. He was well respected in Jonglei especially when he played a great role in clearing out Riek’s forces in Bor. After rebelling, he lost all this credit. There is a chance now Jonglei will find peace. It’s lesson to rebels that messing around with innocent people lives and property is not good because it is not long before you meet the same fate. All rebel factions should know that the second leading position has already been filled by Riek, so taking up arms against RSS will not make any politician or general a vice president or deputy chief of staff. They say ’patience pays’ but in Athor’s case impatience backfires. He might have won next election in Jonglei because people are increasingly losing confidence in Kuol. Now, not only has he failed to achieve his claimed visions but also he failed to protect his life. Now, the SPLA should attack Athor’s stronghold to deter any re-organization of his forces. Since the amnesty is still in place, I ask RSS to give Athor’s family a second chance by allowing them to abandon rebellion and join their fellow citizens of South Sudan. Let his children enjoy the sacrifice (spoiled) of their father that eventually led to Independence through CPA. Greed kills. Although Riek was the first to rebel, he will always announce the death of rebel leaders. Rest in peace Athor and my condolences to his family.

      According to your Ideas. Any individual person in south Sudan will Never be foget. Athor Deng Dut will never be forget like others southern leaders as Garang,Kuanyin,Nyuon etc. Southern who died against against each others does not mean,could not be rememeber. These war going on now is mistreatment war.

    I am giving warning other rebel leaders that equatoria is not a football ground for your dirty politics because we shall never support you whatsoever. Our battle was against the arabs oppressers and now that we are a sovereign nation we dont want any rebel activity on our soil unless its for a genuine cause that was why we were the core of the anyanya 1 and the SPLA/M rebellion, So backoff.

    Its ok to die like an animal? that is lesson 4 everybody who want to put himself above the law. What a blessing year for our nation,now our people in Unity state can rest little bit. We have to deal with the rest of uneducated G through the election SPLA/M never fought for south Sudan new Sudan vision will never apply over us.Everybody ll hold our country as hostage will die like animal...

    Sorry Athor SPLA is not the cause for your death but you are the cause of your death and your death has being a call from your God
    But you the brothers of Athor do not carry, calibrate for his death so that his life should be next to his own father

    God be with SPLA

  • 20 December 2011 20:10, by alierm

    Dear South Sudan youth, let us learn to accept the truth. The general was nothing but a betrayer and created his own exit. Death is not good and the general never consider so many things when he was busy killing his own south sudan people. On that note, therefore, let us stop wasting time on issues that take us back and focus on future.

    TO ATHOR SUPPORTERS: You better join the rest of Southerners in promoting development instead of trying to continue Athor’s aspirations. Athor fell to the tricks of Bashir, who has been using him and the other rebel groups to destabilize South Sudan. IT IS IN YOUR BEST INTEREST TO LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE! THAT IS THE FUTURE OF S.SUDAN AND ITS POSTERITY RATHER THAN CARRYING A TRIBALISTIC MINDSET

  • 20 December 2011 20:46, by Tribe

    Thanks Riek for breaking the importance news to us,however, you should have initially give credit to SPLA units who where pursuing him,local people who assist soldiers with information of where he was about, and lastly the leading commander for his great leadership which has finally lead to the killing of this renegade. Why that is important is because few cohorts of you are good at stealing credi

      @ TRIBE. Were you there when the V.P addressed the media?
      I belief he has done that only that a "FOOL" like you will never appreciates what others say rather than distorting it into something else.

    He deserve that humiliting exit, those who sheded blood must have bloodshed in return.

  • 20 December 2011 20:56, by Nguetbuny de Luelpiny

    Anyone in Sudan Government or rebel has their own curse according to NgunDeng. The right and wrong doing are categorized in his words. Ours dear Garang killing many people and later died of the same Consequences. The people that kill people will be kill to. Sudan has a lot of curse in it. All those will bring change from top to bottom. Until we have respect for everyone in whole Sudan.

  • 20 December 2011 21:37, by Dani

    What I learned is that the freedom we fought for was called liberation, our rebels in the South Sudan what are they fighting for, only God granted us this joyous, fruitful South Sudan, those who are against the stability, prosperity, unity, freedom and peace of the people of South Sudan if not surrender to the Govt will follow the same channel as Athor Otherwise God made everything possible,

    hahaha!a savage dies an idiot.Who says Athor was a potential threat to GOSS? was that son of a poor bitch a threat to GOSS? not at all ladies and gentlemen.WHY IS the news of his death so important to grab a headline on this important web site?
    Athor,a village chief,was given a chance to join the Government and help village citizen send kids to school,grow crops etc but he chose death

    The government of South Sudan need to rid out the rebels in the Country in order to pave the way for potential investors to come. We need development, not war. We have gained our independence. What else do we need? We need development and peace. Athor was not a wise person. Why should he turn to kill innocent civillians in the first place?

  • 21 December 2011 00:41, by Isme

    THE SERPENTS:

    For a long time we contnued killing the vultures and picking off the demons that were riding people. We found that the arrows of differents Truths would have greater impact on different demons. We knew that it was going to be a long battle, but we were not suffering any more caualties now. To every coward, and every traitor its better to learn a lesson.

    • 21 December 2011 01:03, by Chol A.

      Bravo,bravo, George you deserve to die on your own seek, you badly put us on shame. Southern leader has call you that time to give up your arm, but you seem like to be ignored, well that is the result of being ignore to your boss.

  • 21 December 2011 01:00, by James Maker Akok

    Hello,
    I said on the comments that all the Rebels in South Sudan will clean out once day by South Sudan Government. Condonece for Athor dead but he put him in a wrong postion as to be against Government. No one told him to go for Rebel, people were need him to join South Sudan Government.

    Now we need people who are rebels to join South Sudan but if they don’t than they will like Athor.

  • 21 December 2011 01:08, by Isme

    Somehow a better news:
    But according to the saying, an enemy from afar is better than an enemy inside. George athor was kill, but went will the inner enemies die? I mean the corrupted bastard, in other word awalad el aram in arabic those who were been born illigally and that why they act illigally those who lack patriotism they don’t even take care of their Herios SPLA..........?

  • 21 December 2011 04:10, by vision

    Thank you the Government of S. Sudan for killing the great murderer and masterminded for thousands of lives lost in the country. Please bring David Yau Yau to justice, the man who killed a lot more people than George Athor Deng. If you do this, you just minimize the potential future of rebels in S.Sudan.

  • 21 December 2011 04:36, by vision

    Riak Machar was behind George Athor, it is critical only few people can understand. Look at his announcement critically only intelligent and political commentators can understand. Machar worked together with Athor Deng, he never commends as a leader to the issue that was nearly put country into instability.

    • 21 December 2011 05:57, by Deng Bornyang

      @ VISION, stop those baseless accusations. Do you have a prove about what you are saying? You are so fool to accuse someone without substantial evidence.

      Let that not be a culture to you and your like talking against innocent people that you and your stupid friend the DINKA DOMINATED SPLA used to do even if he is in the toilet.

      • 21 December 2011 06:04, by Leave Us Alone

        This Arab mind-controlled weasel will now on be tormented by his Jihadist masters in hell for eternity.

  • 21 December 2011 06:35, by kolongnyantuet

    Athor deserve to die like a criminal because greed has taken the whole of him.

  • 21 December 2011 06:46, by Martin Kat

    The killing of Athor is not the last of destabilization in South Sudan in general particular in Jonglei and Upper Nile states. because most of his supporters are among people.
    What I would like to tell to South Sudan governement and it army SPLA is that don’t sleep and saying that you have winning the game by killing renegade Athor he is a small fish but the big fish is in deep water, keep fishin

    • 21 December 2011 07:11, by Leave Us Alone

      The devil may have his bag of tricks, but He can’t have those who are in Christ! "Ye shall know them by their fruits" mat 7:16. These Arab mind-controlled satanic sleeper cells among us must be sought and distroyed. We are a nation of life not death!

  • 21 December 2011 08:52, by Stomach Politician

    To all the South Sudanese,
    Gen. Athor was hero yes but with his barberic behaivours he became zero. Why are we finger pointing, threatening & terrorizing other tribes. Athor is a rebel against the Nation and the government killed him so what? Instead of joining hands with Salva Kiir and see what nxt, The government is not an easy thing to play with. Fire burns and as well as water. If you think

    • 21 December 2011 09:08, by Chol A.

      Well, where is Jalaby today, does he heard this news? Killing of George Athor now it example to so call SSLA and it alias. You always joke with SPLA but the nasty one it yet to come soon if you do not commites to peaceful solution.

  • 21 December 2011 09:01, by Stomach Politician

    If you think, you can also go to the bush against the government and start killing your fellow South Sudanese let me tell you ’’ the same rob for killing a Monkey it can also kill a Baboon’’ So better enjoy your life in the cities help Kiir to built the baby nation...
    Gen. Athor rest in eternal peace. May the almighty forgive all your sins you did South Sudan. Generation better speak responsibly

  • 21 December 2011 09:02, by Master

    GEORGE ATHOR WAS KILLED BY AMERICAN SPECIAL FORCES

    You lazy incompetent SPLA/M - you cant even fight your own wars. Kiir goes and kiss’s israels butt and Athor is killed the next day. What next ?

  • 21 December 2011 09:22, by Gangura

    Anthor is dead but what about his loyalist? because we are just talking

  • 21 December 2011 09:39, by kuac Agol

    Dear Rebells

    All the rebells of South Sudan should learn from the body of Athor being shown to every citizens of South Sudan for them to know the disadvantage of being rebell.
    for the rebell supportors ,your support bore a very big grave that would accomandate H.E the claimant General/president Athor all of a sudden will accomandate you as well.

    Thank you for digging it big.
