SPLA: Bona Malwal’s withdrawal had nothing to do with harassment


April 13, 2010 (JUBA) — The Sudan People Liberation Army (SPLA) official spokesman, Major General Kuol Deim Kuol, has rejected accusations by Bona Malwal, the leader of a minor southern party in Warrap stat,e over detention and harassment carried out by SPLA soldiers.

Kuol Deim Kuol told Sudan Tribune by phone from Maridi town of Western Equatoria that SPLA is not responsible for polling stations or for harassing candidate or voters. It is only policemen who are accountable for polling stations in Southern Sudan, he said.

Presidential advisor and leader of South Sudan Democratic Forum, Bona Malwal Madut Riing, announced the withdrawal of his candidacy for the National Assembly and the candidates of his party in Warrap state accusing the SPLA of being "a tool of elections rigging by The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement".

The South Sudan Democratic Forum has candidates at all levels in this State, including Governor.

Bona, said in a letter sent to Sudan Tribune that his personal elections agents have been arrested and remain in detention. He further said "I and my party candidates for the various levels of these elections have been denied any representation at the polling stations of Twic County of Warrap State.

Bona alleged in the absence of other parties agents and through the instructions of the security agents, all the ballot papers are marked in favour of the SPLM candidates. This is happening in Tonj, Wunrok, Turalei in Greater Gogrial and Romic in Greater Tonj."

"In all the polling stations in the countryside of greater Gogrial and Tonj, polling processes are done under the trees. The voter does everything from checking his name to throwing his ballot paper in open, with everybody seeing. Those voters who vote against the SPLM are noted for questioning later. This has made the electorate to be frightened," said another was signed by Mayom Kuoc Malek, SSDF’s candidate for governor of the state.

Kuol Deim Kuol offered a different perspective. He told Sudan Tribune that Bona Malwal withdrew because "he knew that he has been defeated." He also referred to the candidate as a "betrayer." Bona Malwal serves as a presidential advisor to Omer Al Bashir.

Kuol Deim affirmed that "he withdrew from the race because the youth in the area are mobilizing day and night so that he is defeated and all the indications are that he is losing 99% because these youth want to show him that he is a betrayer – Bona has been betraying the people of Southern Sudan for all this years, and this is a golden chance for youth to show him what he had been doing for many years – so he withdrew because his knew that he is defeated 100%."

He noted that "SPLA are not allowed to go to polling station with their guns – I myself have just voted on Saturday in Juba and I was wearing non-military uniform."

    Uncle Bona Malual, you must anticipate your failure in your greater Twic County not alone the other areas in Tonj.
    Why will vote for the advisor of Omer El Bashier?

    • 14 April 2010 05:32, by Dinka Dominated SPLA

      I don’t like him for many reason lat him go to hell he is ahame to us we TWIC we are so embarrassed becaused of his life in our community

      General Kual Diem,

      Deny everything Mr. Idiot, you will leak your own faeces later.

    Bona Malwal is a disgrace to his Twich people and to the people of Southern Sudan. This is a guy who will sell his grandmother for oil dollars that Bashir has been handing out. What can he point to as his crowning achievement in Warrap, let alone South? He knew that he could not even convince his cousins to vote for him. So he made up this whole idea of dragging the good name of the SPLA through the mud.

    Traitors like that will one day be left with no place to go and no one to call family. I wonder how Bona’s son managed to get diplomatic posting to Addis Ababa?

    • 14 April 2010 05:46, by Dinka Dominated SPLA


      I know maLwal madut as southerness who don’t know what he is doing in his life but you get make sure donot take about his grandmother becaused no one in our community like what he is doing in his life just talk about him but don’t included others please thank

      • 14 April 2010 05:51, by murlescrewed

        I respectfully agree with you, brother. It’s unnecessary to drag his kinsmen into this debate since Bona Malwal is the one making these embarrassing mess.

        • 14 April 2010 06:15, by Dinka Dominated SPLA

      Bona Who?

      Please uncle Bona I have one thing to say to you, and that is stay far away from us. We are sick and tire of traitors who do not get it. South Sudan have her own sons and daughters, it is not a duck pond. Malwal, Machar, Matip and Abel Alier just to name few of them are absolutely irrelevant to us and our vision. Help us lord from these fools!

    • 15 April 2010 00:39, by Peace Lover

      Mr. Murlescewed & Patroits,

      Thanks you for raising the points of his son, I knew Makoul, we used to be tpgether until he got that chance from NCP Bashir for studies in London on behave of southerners. He was useless boy in Cairo and London.

      The question that i have how his son feel about his father direction? and how feel about what people are saying about his father? or that come to the point of what American said " A son like a father" that why he can even advise his father.

      Addition to that, Bona Malwal family is all loosers like him. Even the mother to the son who is a diplomatic to Addis, is a famous prostitutes in America known by everybody that she likes men alots.

      I don’t know how the son feel, shame on those family who mess Dinka name and tribe.

    • 14 April 2010 10:26, by Flora Tong

      Dinka Boy and others,

      Isn’t Salva Kiir the vice president of Omer Alabshir?
      Bona Malwal is just advisor but Salva Kiir is the vice president!

      Although I am not a supporter of Bona Malwal, I will not use your logic.

      • 14 April 2010 10:59, by Padiet Deng Alony

        Flora Tong
        Understand the terms advisor and Vice president, they are different english words. advisor is the one who advise the one that this is good and that is bad or that should be done and this should be done.then understand more yourself or see the dictionary to get more insight.Kiir is not advisor, His duties and responsibilities are different with that of advisor.I hope you understand.

        Remember Mazlum Battalion.

      • 15 April 2010 00:42, by Peace Lover

        Flora Tong Malwal,

        Fuck you,

        Flora Tong

    • 15 April 2010 14:00, by Terror-hunter

      I don’t think some body will be there to vote for a traitor,,,, i don’t like Bona because he left his own brothers in Twic county of Warap state and join Bashir long time ago now he want them to vote for him......he is a stupid man

  • 14 April 2010 05:20, by Dengtaath

    Down to Bona Malwal.Let him go back to his advisory position to Omer Bashier. I agreed with Koul Diem at this point, this man (Bona Malwal Madut) had been a bad betrayor against South Sudan for all his life.Let him go to the hell

    • 14 April 2010 06:57, by Machingela gai

      Uncle Bona malual needs to retire from politics. His age deny him from doing the job right. For how long he is going to confuse Southerners? Being a politician for 53 years yet nothing has changed means that he is just ordinary wind without impact. His ineffective ideas always contridict our Journey to freedom. He is first to say what he thinks is good for us and the South, however, he is first not to be believed and trusted ! That is Mr. Malual identity and oddity.

      Short your mouth up and go home, Uncle. These final years of your life have to be good years of asking God for forgiveness and search for the lost soul that will allow you to go heaven instead of hell. Redeem yourself old man, for you will not be baried with that dirty career.

  • 14 April 2010 06:43, by Dinka Boy


    This is how Jieng( Dinka) behave in the public. We condemned our people if they did wrong while in your side(Nuer) this is like climbing mt kilimanjaro.

    Hi All,

    Wo is Major General Kuol Deim Kuol?

    Is he spokeman for Dinka or the SPLA?

    Kuol, the SPLA is national army, you can says the fact when your reporting any incident

    Denying fact is not good. the SPLA Officers and Taban are intimidating voters in Unity state and you don’t say anything.

    Kuol, Where are you? when your people were fucked by Arabs in Abyei and you never rescue them. your people were rescue by Major Gen. Peter Gatdet Yaka in May 2008. Are you a really man?

    Please says fact now, Time has come for you to say, if not, Peter Gatdet will not rescue your people again.

    if you to become a good man, Order Division four commander not interfere with local politic.

    Major Gen. Doar Majur invloved himself too much in local politic in Unity state he is aide with Taban Deng Gai

    Raan Naath will be Third SPLA movment commander if Taban
    will not go away from our state

    • 15 April 2010 14:28, by Guotdit Guot Guot

      First of all I would like to thank Raan Naath for his comment. Basically, Mr Kuol Diem doesn’t know that Spla soldiers are the southern Sudan army not belonging to particular group. Matters of fact Spla soldiers are belonging to each and every community of southern Sudan of which kuol Diem need remember that. Kuol Diem is a spokesman of SSDF his job to report army stuff not political spokesman or what so ever. If he love politics then he need to quit army join any political part. Brother people of Gok don’t know word appreciation they suppose to appreciate Twic community but they not.
