Preach forgiveness, displaced Bul Nuers tell S. Sudan leaders


May 30, 2016 (BENTIU) – At least 5,320 Bul Nuer currently living at the United Nations Protection of Civilian (PoC) site at Jebel-Kujur, a suburb of the South Sudan capital, have urged the country’s leaders to speed up the ongoing peace implementation process.

James Tut Wuliny, a Bul Nuer community leader, said the peace deal signed in August last year, between warring parties was the only option to end conflict.

He however said South Sudanese leaders should explain the importance of peace among citizens in the young nation.

Wuliny says both President Salva Kiir and his first deputy, Riek Machar had vital roles to play in efforts to promote peace and unity in the country, despite the two year conflict.

“We are taking this initiative as Bul [Nuer] community leaders that President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his first deputy in the formation of transitional government of national unity had a task to stop random killings and looting of properties experienced in this unwanted three years of crisis,” he said.

The official lauded both leaders for their commitments to the ongoing implement of the country’s peace accord, but said more need to be done in sensitizing the population.

“This courageous step you have taken shall save the country from economic crises and it will also restore trust between the tribes broken into ashes by the crisis,” he said.

Wuliny said the populations of Mayom, one of the counties in Unity state, fully support the peace deal and that it was time for people to forgive each other for crimes committed.

“We call upon all people in South Sudan to say sorry to one another and accept ourselves as one people serving one nation with a purpose,” further stressed the Bul Nuer leader.

James Gatluak Madiet, a displaced Bul Nuer currently living at the UN protection of civilian base in Juba, said a reconciliation campaign successfully kicked off on Sunday.

“The reconciliation campaign started today in UNMISS [UN Mission in South Sudan] will open doors to all peace lovers countrywide and also in the diaspora because without telling the truth to the affected communities, there will be no peace and the grievances will remain,” said Madiet.

The campaign is the first ever event organised by the Bul Nuer community at a UN protection site, since the conflict broke out in the South Sudan capital in December 2013.

    Way to go! Preach peace and you will certainly live in peace; preach war, the results are obvious. Individuals worth their names as leaders should preach peace.

    Peace will only come when Nuer distance themselves from the repeated tribal rebellions

    Look at this useless section of Nuer call Bul! You are the one being used by Kiir excessively against other Nuer. Only Bul Nuer are still fighting in Unity State. If you want peace just talk with Bul leaders like Nguent Manytuiel, Bapiny Manytuiel, Pul Jang to stop attacking their brother Nuer and then you will see peace. Bul Nuer are the one helping Kiir Kill Nuer and fight criminal war.

      Bul Nuer are the very one who loot cattle from other Nuer counties in Unity State and take them to warrap to appease Kiir and make all Dinka happy. Bul Nuer are the very one who elongate this war and they are one who fight the war that they do not know how it will end and what will be the consequences. Bul Nuer is the criminal and food lover sub tribe of Nuer.

    As long as Kiir and his Dinka council of elders are still in power, South Sudanese will never ever see peace in South Sudan. Kiir is the world foolish president who does not have a vision for South Sudan. Not only that Kiir is lucking vision for the country, but he is also a political war criminal that should not be forgiven by court of law on earth.
