Bor residents call to create new administrative area


May 9, 2020 (JUBA) - Residents of Bor Area in Jonglei voiced their rejection of a recent presidential decision allocating their state to SPLM-IO and called to establish an independent administrative area in Bor, which is the home of a Dinka branch.

Some of the angry youth protesting in the Jonglei capital, Bor on July 19, 2016 (ST)The largest and most populous state in South Sudan has been also known by the fratricidal violence between the Dinka, Murle and Nuer pastoralist tribes for the control of water sources and grazing land.

President Kiir last February when he accepted to re-establish the 10-state territorial administration created in addition three administrative areas including one for the Murle: Greater Pibor Administrative Area.

In a collective letter to President Kiir seen by Sudan Tribune, "the concerned citizens of Greater Bor" said concerned by the allocation of Jonglei State to the SPLM-IO of Riek Machar.

"We believe (that) peace and harmony will not be achieved as wounds are not yet recovered," they said alluding to past bloody conflicts with the SPLA- Nasir faction in 1991 and with the Lou Nuer in 2013.

"We are demanding your high authority to give us our own Administrative Area so that we (can) live in Peace and Harmony," further stressed the two-page petition.

The petition wondered why Jonglei has being given to the SPLM-IO while the latter did not show interest in their state.

Further, they said that group of FVP Riek Machar in their letter to R-JMEC of 7 May has rejected the allocation of states and asked to refer the matter to the guarantors

The SPLM-IO in its letter to the peace implementation monitoring body contested the allocation of the Upper Nile State to the SSOA pointing that there was no consensus on the matter because this allocation did not consider the prominence of each party in the state.

    "Bor residents call to create new administrative area"
    There you go!. Says who? In fact, we want to take back our ’pi-bor’ from the Murles. Our Pibor was to be given to Murles who just came recently into our country in 1920th from today, Southern Abesh (ethiopia). We just left our Pibor to our main Nile course simply because our cattle were not able to get enough water.>>>>

    • 10 May 04:17, by Langbaar

      The reason as to why our Pibor was given to Murles in the first place was a slapped in the face. Michael Makuei Lueth, Kuol Manyang and other bunch of low lives know the Murles don’t own Pibor. But netherless, they gave our country to these lawless vermins. Fellows, watch out fools. Mac Abol, Pi-bor are Bor Dinkas/muonyjieng of the Sudan countries>>>>

      • 10 May 04:25, by Langbaar

        The ’Anyuaks people’ are the ones who called our Pi-bor (water from Bor). Fellows, this bullshit that "Bor residents call to create new administrative area" is a lie ’simple and plain’ lowly SUDAN TRIBUNE criminals. They just want to woke up the Bor Dinka/Jieng community to their dirty intrigue. But vermin are going to bombed out of map, once and for all, out of our country and over our people>>>

        • 10 May 04:28, by Langbaar

          once and for all, reason, pure HATRED AND RACISM.>>>>

      Bor community, that,s too late for you to cry my people, better to accept such a arrangement since we are one as Jonglei communities.

      Don,t compare GPAA community with Dinka and Nuer who are completely one family by origin.

    The Bor Resident should have wait until the final solution about the issue of 33 States. I am suggesting also Mabior Garang is one of strong supporting Riek Machar and I hope maybe government want to see how you guys works with them. His mother Nyandeng Garang was also supporting Riek Machar too.

  • 10 May 06:40, by Mayendit

    Basically, the only people who have been subjected by the SPLM I0 were Bor South Residents because that was the policy made by Dr. Majak D. Agoot and Mabior Garang and his mother Nyandeng. In fact, you guys have to tell Mabior Garang that, you don’t want him in Jonglei State. I think it is too late to asking for Bor Administrative .

      They are guilty for what they had done to Nuer civilians in UN compound. killed unarmed civilians are not gonna go away easily without punishment. Kuol Mayamg Juuk had ruled the Jonglei States for so years and he didn’t stop the Murle youth for killing Bor. Pibor curved out from Jonglei some years ago, but didn’t stop Lou Youth to displaced Murle civilians and burned down the almost the entirely a

        Dear Games,
        this not a joke matter, what Nuer did in 1991 and 2013 to Bor people can not be equated to what had happened to Nuer in poc in Bor, and to Bor people having an administrative area is not a solution to Bor problems, SPLM-IO may send you a governor as Bor son, but many governors governed with Government ticket and still no difference, this time why don’t we try opposition for comparison.

    • 10 May 07:28, by Games

      There will never be more than 10 states in this country or in our watches. The issue of more than 10 states were originally from those Bor Dinka. They wanted to confuse people as they can have their own state after they fucked the country up.

  • 10 May 07:03, by Games

    Burned down the almost the entirely administrations

  • 10 May 07:14, by Games

    IO has no interest for having Jonglei States governorship, because the majority of Nuer across Jonglei are IO supporters. It was Salva Kiir himself that doesn’t wants anything to do with Jonglei. Due for the facts that all these messes the country are facing are primarily caused by Dinka Bor.

  • 10 May 07:18, by Games

    Because Salva Kiir is an idiots, he let his hands to the in that bloody game

  • 10 May 07:21, by Games

    Jonglei States could have been perfect state for allies groups as they are calling them as neutral party in the country.

  • 10 May 11:32, by Kenyang ll

    Backstabers & tribalist warmongers in Bor and Gogrial created this war. These protestors should go to Makuei Lueth/Kuol Manyang house and cry there.

    • 10 May 14:43, by Malakal county Simon

      Your right brother Kenyang

      Bor South people’s, are the roots causes of this current senseless war in revenge of 1991 as they always sing the song 91, 91, 91, but unfortunate that Salva Kiir did not see that coming!!

      • 10 May 15:40, by South South

        Malakal county Simon,

        Shut up you betrayer Nuer. 1991 is the cause of everything South Sudan is facing today.

        • 10 May 16:24, by Malakal county Simon

          South South

          You’re just one of those foolish majority and you will never get it!!

          • 10 May 16:41, by South South

            Malakal county Simon,

            Foolish is the one who follow and take second seat. You are following me and you are sitting in second seat, how about that Nuer betrayer?

      • 11 May 02:22, by Kenyang ll

        Malakal County Simon,

        We are not saying same thing (backstabbers in Bor vs Bor South people).

        Look at your name vs mine, we have nothing and will probably never have anything in common except being South Sudanese.

  • 10 May 19:33, by Mayendit

    Games this is absolutely a Nuers thinking but it’s not the way others South Sudanese are thinking. You said, there will be no more States adding to 10 States this is just a narrow mind and not the thinking of most opening minds in South Sudan. You guys have a choice to make, if you guys wanted to have one State then, you will be combine together as much as possible.

    Bor should not cry, let them just wait for what is going to happen. ’’Bor yiene Jebe liebe ni looc te ke laat ti lat ko kone marol’’ Prepare for Kiir Burial
