SPLM leaders pull out of NLC meeting over “lack of dialogue spirit”


December 14, 2013 (JUBA) – Senior leaders of South Sudan’s ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) said they have pulled out from the meeting of the National Liberation Council (NLC), accusing South Sudan’s president and party chairman, Salva Kiir Mayardit, of deviating from the spirit of dialogue.

SPLM senior leaders holding a press conference to discuss the actions of party chairman and South Sudanese president Salva Kiir, on 6 December 2013 in Juba (ST)

Senior members of the SPLM highest executive organ, the Political Bureau (PB), including the party’s deputy chairman, Riek Machar Teny, as well as members of the NLC on Saturday announced that Kiir has not replicated their “good gesture for dialogue” on democracy in the party.

Earlier on Friday, the group announced the postponement of a public rally that had been due to take place on Saturday in order to inform the wider public about the party’s current affairs.

Machar said the decision came following calls from SPLM supporters to postpone both the rally and NLC meeting in order to allow more time for internal political dialogue on contentious issues affecting the party.

While the rally was subsequently postponed until 20 December, the NLC meeting went ahead as planned.

Machar and his colleagues had attended the first day of the NLC meeting on Saturday, where they participated in deliberations on the passing of the basic documents, namely the manifesto and the constitution.

However, the party deputy chairman said Kiir’s statements during the meeting had deviated from the spirit of dialogue and reconciliation which had been called for by SPLM supporters.

He said the chairman, who has previously been accused of “dictatorial tendencies”, did not heed to the voice of “wisdom” by bishops and sheikhs who graced the opening session to remind the leaders on the need for dialogue and reconciliation.

“Kiir’s statements were of hostility, [and provided] no room for political dialogue”, Machar said.

“We attended the NLC meeting despite the fact that the Political Bureau did not convene. But there was no freedom of debate. Members of the NLC, who are also members in the Political Bureau, were told that their views were already made in the Political Bureau”, he added, referring to a PB meeting in March, which has yet to be concluded.

He said his group has decided to dissociate itself from the “undemocratic process” amid fears it would pass undemocratic resolutions in the meeting.

Machar added that his group did not want to be involved in the dismissal process of the party’s suspended secretary-general, Pagan Amum, whom he said was tried in absentia by a hand-picked committee appointed by Kiir.

During his opening speech at the NLC meeting, Kiir said the committee that investigated Amum had recommended his dismissal and urged the members to act on the report.

Machar called on other members of the NLC to withdraw from the meeting and its undemocratic processes.

He said his group now planned to review the party’s current situation in light of Kiir’s lack of enthusiasm for political dialogue, which he said would have resolved contentious issues on democracy in the party.

    Once upon a time, there was a Lou-Nuer prominent paramount chief who was in disputes with Dinka-Chuor and were in the verge of war, and here is what he had to said, “This season I am going to fight one of the brutal wars ever in history against Dinka-Chuor, and for those who are living far away after they heard the breaking news of such a war, they will be defecated”. Think about it those who live

      It’s not surprise for people like Martin Majut Yak and Telar Deng to one day sink the country into abyss, and this is at the door awaiting you, sirs! Please Martin; go back to Canada where you were patrolling malls and shops working as security guard. Martin; wasn’t you who said thanks God

        Dr.John Garang is dead after the crash, and flew to Juba right away to start this dirty politicking you are admiring now. Martin; is it bad for you sitting at Juba bridge Hotel for years with beautiful wife in the name of peace in the country or you wanted Juba to be in destruction and end up in Canada where your wife will be taken from your hand once again.

Adage goes; “No matter how one fed his dog fully, that dog is still remains a dog and can harass the owner instantly”.

Imagine, David Yau Yau used to panic them and have gave them nightmares, what if mightiest South Sudanese said enough is enough….Martin and dog pop (Kiir Malieldit) will not make it this time instead.

Dr.Riek and group are not telling dog pop (Kiir Malieldit) to resign from presidency but to compete a healthy democracy exercise within the party for chairmanship for the upcoming 2015 election. In a nutshell, Kiir remains the president of the Republic until 2015, and should he also win the chairmanship of the party democratically, he will still remain the flag bea

Instead, Martin at el Telar and cohorts like SPLM Dinka dominated plus dog pop (Kiir Malieldit) himself are deceiving people of Greater BarelGhazal that people of Greater Upper Nile are aiming to take your seat.

President Kiir though has attended Madiba memorial service full of colorful speeches and praises after praises, and for him (Kiir) to learn how a respected person leave behind a good legacy, Kiir instead came back to Juba with empty cowboy hat and dictatorially wanted to die like

                        Dr. Machar and colleagues I thank you for trying political dialogue as advised by the church. But now don’t waste your time to beg this deaf man Kiir Kuethpiny. He doesn’t care about the future of the party or the nation. I knew he would not respect the church leaders while he is having sex and impregnating underage girls in Catholic church of Kator. Use other democratic means to remove him.

                        Dr. Defector Riek Machar Teny is a stray dog, not knowing that there is a red line between today and 1991. You have every right to pull out of NLC meeting and form your own party where you presumed supporters will easily cross to the other side the isle instead of making noise like an empty drum.

              it is unfortunate to campaign for the war u will not be at the battle field; what is good about the war rather than the loss of lives, properties and the destruction of the infrastructure. ur problem is greed for power without proper objectives, let me assure u if u people want power through violence we shall show u what it means. Take the country back to chaos again but u will be refugees 4ever.

          • 15 December 2013 06:50, by Kenyang

            Indeed no matter what one can do, "dog remains a dog," but let not forget that a dog is happy animal & easy to please. The dog-Riek isn’t. He’s used to causing havoc and chaos even after being handed vice presidency in golden plate. He may not get away with more massacre as he did in ’91. Don’t be emotional, instead join your likes & shoot down the moon.

        • 15 December 2013 10:30, by Dr Manago

          You guys who are ever supporting riak and his group will end up with no positive results rather than remaining in exile. Why do you always beat drum of war while you are out side the country. Riak and his group had been in government holding key positions for 8 years and they did not stop corruption, tribalism and they didn’t even improve international relations. What transformations will they do if they are given powers? I advise south sudanese think of things that will bring development instead posting words of war all the times.

    • 15 December 2013 16:07, by Mike Mike

      The current leadership of SS may not rule SS to the expected junction,because of the division within the administrative line.It has never happen for leaders not to come together when discussing leadership issues that doesn’t show any single aspect of leadership style in them. Dismissal of party secretary is not an easy thing that can just be recommeded in favor of one person, while no reason.

    2004, Rumbek Salva Kiir split citing dictatorship from SPLM founding father late Dr. John Garang to which he said he was running the movement like his personal property.Today Kiir stated since 1960 he never betrayed the cause of struggle. The question we can ask is, why he gave Abyei Land to Jallaba? Isn’t that a big betray to this new nation? Kiir speech today is a call for a war, so be ready!

  • 15 December 2013 03:53, by Bentiu son

    Dear founders and senior SPLM members,thanks for given dialogue n peace a chance in our mid but mind you that Salva and his puppets are too deform to reform as such the only way forwards is impeachment.Salva Kiir from day once works to put South Sudan like Somalia n Rwanda genocidal situations. Plz the entire nation are with you dismiss him and let what happen happen.We are ready than before.

            I saw you king Salva humiliated and belittled by Susan Rice during mandala funeral service. The world media showed him when he was using his hands a sign to clarify a point to Susan Rice. I felt sorry him because some other delegates addressed him as the president of Southern Sudan instead of South Sudan.Beat the drums war and the war will sure come. it will summer soon

              I would like to inform you that MOST COMMENTATORS on this site were militia and war lords who used to survive through looting ,now they found it difficult to loot or get money from the Arabs because South Sudan is already country this is what made them to campaign or wishing war , so that they could loot . but that will not happen ,citizens are aware

            People like dinka dominant, chol A, ,kunyel and others stupid kiir supporters think that the incoming war is joke . Dr machar and his teams have only remain with three options one is to announce that hopeless kiir is not a chairman of SPLM party no more two is to lock the hopeless up, three, kill the hopeless and drag to street. Those are not far ti happen. God damn kiir and his fellow hopeless

            • 15 December 2013 15:36, by deng

              Kiir is not a problem, Nuer community is the problem in the entire South Sudan. Is Dr. Riek Machar the only educated dr. in Nuer? Do not use him as a tool to press your agendas. Talking about the truth think twice before you acts. Let pray no tribal war will occur because if it does happen, judgments will be done in hell because one of the tribe will lose very badly.

              To dead in power is better than joining the enemy to weaken your team mat.evaluate those three people base on their commitment in struggle and you will proof that Kiir is super-nature man and you can not defeat him with his strong group. now if you support a man who split during movement what will cause of your struggle for 21 year,if you lack analystical centre that is your own risk.

        Mark these words! Incompetent Kiir is like a SERIOUSLY wounded he-goat with broken horns. He can pretend to be in control and talk tough like Muamer Gaddafi or Hosni Mubarak, but will soon feel like a fish thrown out of the water. Only he doesn’t have the capacity to analyze the situation correctly. He is GONE!!!

          will the SPLM won the 2015 general election under Kirr as its presidential candidate if those political heavy weigh could polled out and form a new party? I agreed with those who said that Kirr does not love himself. likewise he doesn’t love SPLM as well as the people of RSS. He must to go.

            Kiir is another moron, a very ill man like him would have allow others to set in that chair. A Kenyan doctor secretly leacked the seriou information that Kiir is critically ill of HIV/AIDS, a diease that has no treatment. his life will not last long just give him more chance before he die. but of it machar once share lady with him, that is Awut Deng who is also a suspect of that illness.

            It’s seemed to me that’s unwanted president Kiir, doesn’t want the peace to prevails in our country. And I think its time for southerners to abolish this unwanted dictator president, for the lasting peace in our country and for the development to take its place.

            • 15 December 2013 06:22, by Malakal county Simon

              Unwanted Kiir was elected by a people’s of South Sudan, due fake promises of good education, good hospitals, good cleaning water, and good security in the country. But non-of those mention above has been implemented due to ongoing rampant corruptions/rising tribalism/ rising dictatorship/vision-less/ and ongoing insecurity.

              • 15 December 2013 06:30, by Malakal county Simon

                So why it so hard for unwanted president to listen to the citizens calls, for him to resign after he failed his election promises above, and badly betrayed them. To what’s points/rights do unwanted president have to lead the people’s whom he doesn’t care about them, and constantly betrayed them??

Do you think if the war break-out today between Dr Machar supporters and unwanted Kiir suppoters, you cannot feel the heat?

                    You made me laugh my friend. 1991 split was and will be the mother of all rights which are now enjoying by individuals in RSS. While 2004 attempt by Kirr was for the lack of respect between Kirr and Dr. Garage. Kirr seen by most of the SPLM/A politicians and generals as an object of curiosity rather than respect. That was the purpose of his rebellion to liberate himself.

          I ’ve never heard a rat threatening a cat all over the world except in South Sudan where traitorous, power-greediness, unstudied threats and militia remains the norm and culture to grab a power by the well known backstabber.
          He had attempt to interupt the meeting by coming in with his militia in 7vehicles but he withdraw later, after he fails to secure his evil attempts for the 2nd time.

          Mi diit,
          What did Nuer want? A blood to wash their hands with? Talking is for children and don’t waste your time here go pick up a gun and fight dinka and see if that can help your brain. Riek has a chance to lead South Sudan but lost his cool. Stop crying and be the man!!!!!

    • 15 December 2013 06:47, by Muorcienggok

      it is too premature and shallow for you to think Kiir has caused a total failure to this nation neither is it right for you people to hold Dinka tribe responsible for any mess who fought the whole middle East to liberate you;though you sabotaged and betrayed our caused for struggle . I must confess without us for sure you must still by now be cleaning dishes in Khartoum and feeding on left overs

      • 15 December 2013 06:58, by Rami Tot

        Killing Riek Machar will never be easy as you wish to. that will most difficult one it will kill who ever wish him to died and bring starvation since all Dinkas appear from hunger hahahaha try it if is possible

        • 15 December 2013 07:02, by Rami Tot

          Kiir was crying yesterday during his speech on podium for what?

    • 15 December 2013 15:26, by deng

      Bentiu Son,
      Here we go again supporting nonsense. South Sudan "A rich country with brainless leaders." Tribalism start with you, Riak Machar, Salva Kiir, Pagam Amum, Nyadeng Garang de Mabior, and those funk asses motherfuckers who like to supported violence and not peace! God damn you all for dirty wishful thinking. A nation is build by united people not by tribalists agendas.

  • 15 December 2013 07:04, by Pure Nationalist

    Good move to withdraw, it was not a reconciliation, instead it was just a gathering where Kiir would pass his visionless & dictatorship home formed rules as he opened it by criticizing reformists. Let the yes-men & women who don’t care about the nation continue with him.

  • 15 December 2013 07:09, by Ambago

    So the sheikhs (Turabi) and the bishops advised you to postpone your rally. You listened to them, while the other group went ahead with their NLC meeting.
    Again you went and attended the meeting that you initially disapproved of, as it comes before the PB meeting. Are you that desperate!!
    When was the SPLM ever democratic?!! You are in for more humiliations if you keep running after these guys

    • 15 December 2013 08:30, by Kenyang

      Your alternative leader is not only despair to negotiate himself back into vice presidency or whatever he can get but the man is clearly on his past footprints of abandoning supporters and his own doctrine. No, SPLM is never democratic but me & you can agree that neither part of it such as Riek and these recent relieved former employees can be. Logic, right!?

  • 15 December 2013 07:23, by Kenyang

    Riek and other former RSS employees (where some are needed in court to clear their names for theft...) are free to form their new party & be formidable alternative to SPLM if they believe to have enough popular support...

  • 15 December 2013 08:24, by Gatluak

    Dr.Riek plus his group are really doing well.The people of S. Sudan closely watching & hearing the problem facing SPLM. We are blind only with greedy of Kiir,we are locked out from planning & decision making. We know very well Kiir is only doing his interest 2gether with those opportuniest who just want 2 eat & not for the best of the nation.God knows who is

  • 15 December 2013 11:20, by Michael Miyom Minyiel

    pulling out of the party’s dialogue does not mean that Kiir dominated the party affairs.Riek to form his own party to survive him politically.

    • 15 December 2013 12:15, by Malakal county Simon

      @ Michael Miyom can you briefly tell us for what’s reason should Dr Machar form his own party? when he is indeed the current wanted man to lead the party? I think it should be unwanted president that’s should form his own party,just like he formed his own army in the name of presidential-guard. He (Kiir) seemed to dislike SPLM vision of democracy, wanted to turn this vision to dictatorial style.

  • 15 December 2013 12:19, by Bauer

    Fellow Readers, its very ashaming and disappointing to be called a South Sudanese these days.Why on earth can’t these our so called authoritative and democratic leaders sit on a round table and iron their differences out? What is so hard in saying let us discuss these issues and bury the hatchet for we are one South Sudan? Why do we try to impose other tribes over others?...continues

  • 15 December 2013 12:26, by Bauer

    Who the fuck told you that your so called big tribe was born to rule? If your a security agent and here lamenting and proud about the atrocities committed by the president then you surely are myopic.If a whole president cannot accept internal criticism then there is a big problem.To you sons, well wishers of this poor nation, don’t beat the drum of war but rather dialogue, people are tired of war.

  • 15 December 2013 12:35, by Bauer

    Mdiit,Naath, bloody Dinka Dominated Shit & associates alike, abusing the president or hurling insults at one another will never take either of you anywhere, it only shows how stupid you are.In most of your comments it’s all about insults, Nuer this, Dinka that there is hardly any intellectual maturity.Humble yourselves & start giving constructive comments not attacking tribes & individuals....

    • 15 December 2013 22:36, by dude

      Bauer, what you are saying is nonsense.Salva Kiir is always talking in hostile tone of voice and so he does not know how to iron out and how to solve things diplomatically. He is son of the bitch who used to fuck a monkey in the jungle. Now he is fucking little girls at the Catholic Church in Juba. Fuck him and fuck his supporters. Fuck Gogrials and fuck his cows near Juba. Fuck Salva

  • 15 December 2013 12:44, by Bauer

    If you give me your opinion about what you think about an article & not deviate to insult that person you don’t like deviating from the article then your educating the other person who knows less about RSS.Please deviate from using bad language & start giving ideas, opinions NOT insults, educate the others & stop sounding the drums of war, hoping u will agree,change & we see better comments

  • 15 December 2013 12:47, by Gogrialboys

    Let those yawning for war against Dinka, especially the so call Riak followers be inform that there will be Khartoum to run to at this time. Try it and you will smell what you really cooking. The event of 1991 will not go unpunished. You guys talk like as if you were made from the rock. Dinka eyes was on Khartoum at that time when your when stab us at the back.

  • 15 December 2013 13:15, by Whortti Bor Manza

    Dear non Dinkas and non Nuers: My appeal to all is dissociate your selves from this Nuer versus Dinka Feud. Leave them to persuade this senseless power struggle. Shame on you president Kiir. Power is so sweet that you cannot listen to alternative voices. I think Kiir has become a full blown dictator. Recruiting 3000 tribal army is not enough him, but to rid SPLM the mighty party of Democracy.

  • 15 December 2013 15:41, by dude

    Fuck all Salva kiir supporters. Salva kiir has broken the supreme land of the law by forming his own army. I ask all the opposition to form their own army and to declare that we have two presidents. I do not like Salva Kiir. I hate him. Fuck him and his corruption supporters. Long live Dr. Machar. Fuck Salva kiir and fuck gogrial.

    • 15 December 2013 22:59, by Bentiu son


  • 16 December 2013 03:12, by dude

    Brave body Guards of Dr. Machar stood their ground. They were outnumbered by the presidential Guards of the stupid president Mafuckdiit. The fucking presidential guards were defeated. Long live Dr. Machar

    What Does the Bible say About Bad Leadership?

    “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord. “But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 23:1-4 (NKJV)

      "It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, For a throne is established by righteousness." Proverbs 16:12 (NKJV)

        "It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of [a]overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. [b]An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine[c]or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, FREE FROM THE LOVE OF MONEY. He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), 1 Timothy 3:1-5 (NASB)

    Corruption, Greed and Iniquity destroyed Babylon

    Flee from the midst of Babylon, And every one save his life! Do not be cut off in her iniquity, For this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He shall recompense her. Jeremiah 51:6 (NKJV)
