De Mabior denies reports about his resignation from SPLM-IO


SPLM-IO leader Machar (R) and the head of information office Mabior Garang de Mabior pose for picture on 22 June 2018 (Photo Mabior Granag de Mabior)July 12, 2020 (JUBA) - SPLM-IO Chairman of the National Committee for Information and Public Relations, Mabior Garang de Mabior Sunday dismissed social media reports about his resignation from the political movement of the First Vice President Riek Machar.

Social media circulated a two-page statement signed by de Mabior where he announces his resignation from the SPLM-IO and accusing Machar of nepotism for the appointment of his wife as defence minister, failure to implement the security arrangements among other allegations.

In a swift response to the false statement, de Mabior denounced the "mischief" adding he would respond only for the sake of our young men and women in the SPLA-IO adding he does not want them to be confused by this fabricated statement..

"What you are hearing - concerning my abandoning the peoples’ Movement - is fake news and wishful thinking from the intellectual mercenaries of the NPTC regime in Juba," he said.

The son of the SPLM historical leader pledged to write about those behind the statement and urged the movement’s youth to focus on "learning the provisions of the Agreement so that we can use it against the NPTC regime which has hijacked the peace process," he said.

The National Pre-Transitional Committee is tasked with the oversight and coordination of the implementation of the activities of the pre-transitional period.

On 3 June 2020, Mabior addressed a letter to Machar announcing his resignation from the position as deputy minister of interior to protest the government’s failure to implement the security arrangement.

"I shall remain a member of our peoples’ struggle until we achieve our objective of bringing about a fundamental change in our country," he further stressed.

    This ugly Mabior is a lair and should be ignored. He looks very ugly everyday.

      Good stand Mabior Garang and the future leader, those allegations will not affect our movement, just turn your deaf ears to them.

    Mr.Mabior Garang Mabior.
    If the whole Twic communities are not ashamed about your attitude then, I do. If your late father behave like you clearly, he would have not leading the SPLA & SPLM and I need to tell you the truth. Don’t mess up the chances of others Dinka Bor or Twic people because you have been known for bad behavior.

  • 13 July 00:57, by Mayendit

    Don’t let Riek Machar Teny fool you on who killed your father. Many people have told me that, Riek Machar is telling you wrong information about who murdered your father. There’s no South Sudanese in the killing of your father put that in your mind. Stay in one side if you want and don’t just make noise through out. Your father wouldn’t successful without others like the current President.

  • 13 July 01:08, by Mayendit

    Mabior Garang
    Remember one thing, even though you behave so badly thus. The Dinkas and the South Sudanese people will not abandoned your late father because we believe he was a good leader unlikely to his older son which is you. Why you jump up and down without showing your respect to those people who helped your late father to be successful. Please staying with Riek because we don’t like you.

        Rami Tot,

        Read what you wrote above. " do you are the useless Dinka", shit.

  • 13 July 09:43, by Nueri Dial

    De Mabior is among the wise Dinka. Any Dinka/Jaang/Slave who usually follow Nuer are always wisest in their community. I love the way you handle your things.

    • 13 July 09:54, by Games

      De Mabior has chosen the right side of history. Dr. Garang was successful because of Nuer. SPL without Nuer is nothing.

      • 13 July 18:29, by Khent


        In what world did Garang succeed because of the Nuer? You joined Khartoum and became their slave-tribe; slaves that did irreparable damage to the movement. You claim that the Bul constitute half of your tribe, which necessarily means that half of your tribe were slaves to the ’Arabs’ since the early 80s. The rest of you became slaves in the 90s.

    • 13 July 18:23, by Khent

      Nueri Dial

      The people who who were slaves to the ’Arabs’ now throw this word around as if it means something. It’s hilarious. Your people were used by Khartoum for decades - like dogs. Everyone in Sudan knows this.

      • 13 July 19:50, by Nueri Dial

        Mighty Nuer never been a slave to any! The history is very clear, who fought English as well as Arab. Jaang/Slave were all treated good by our ancestors because of kindness. Please don’t make your master get angry, you won’t like it. Ask yourself about what William Nyuon was doing when he was second man to Dr.John? You also claim that Mabior is ugly, p/se that he how his father look like.

          Nueri Dial

          Everybody fought the British, you moron. The Dinka of Bahr El Ghazal did a great job fighting the British and there is extensive documentation on this. William Nyuon was a great man, but he was no greater than Kerubino Kuanyin Bol and other Dinka warriors that created the movement. The Arabs enslaved you and now you desperately deny it out of shame.

          • 13 July 20:01, by Khent

            ..Khartoum used the Nuer for decades and you ran to them thinking that your alliance with them would help the Nuer take the leadership from the Dinka. You failed. You will continue to fail. You don’t even control your own tribal territories and you’re claiming to be masters? Run along now, slave.

            • 13 July 20:05, by Khent

              Many Nuer who rallied to the Nasir commanders did so because they thought that now the Nuer would rule as the Dinka were accused of ruling before. (The Root Causes of Sudan’s Civil Wars: Peace Or Truce, Douglas Hamilton Johnson)

          • 14 July 08:35, by Nueri Dial

            Thanks for acknoledging William Nyuon as a founder of SPLA together with Kerubino Kuanyin but you can now start the history from this two men. They took that wrong path when they killed the men of People, Samuel Gai Tut and Kuot Atem. These two guys has great ideas on how we should get our independent but with coup made by Dr.John and his group against these guys was the root of all problem

              Nuero Dial

              Yes, I suppose that Samuel Gai Tut and Akuot Atem Mayen had "great ideas", but you need more than "great ideas" if you wish to launch an armed struggle. Where would your weapons come from? The same question applies for logistical support and training...

              • 14 July 13:02, by Khent

                You don’t seem to realise that when Samuel Gai Tut and Akuot Atem De Mayen first presented their manifesto to the Ethiopians (in order to receive support) the Ethiopians rejected their strictly secessionist manifesto, and so they certainly weren’t going to get any kind of material support from a country that was itself experiencing war with secessionists...

                • 14 July 13:05, by Khent

                  No country in Africa would have supported a movement with purely secessionist objectives... because it violated the OAU Charter. African countries were nervous about any changes to their borders. The Libyans provided us with weapons because Dr. John Garang successfully convinced them that we had completely discarded any and all secessionist ideals and plans...

                  • 14 July 13:27, by Khent

                    John Garang mentioned the importance of self-determination as far back as 1972. Unlike Samuel Gai Tut, Akuot Atem De Mayen and Riek Machar, Garang knew how to (strategically) frame it and pursue it. In a letter sent to Joseph Lagu in 1972, Dr. John Garang makes the point "that a region retains the right to secede from the federation if its interests are not adequately served by the federation."

                    • 14 July 13:37, by Khent

                      Furthermore he said:

                      "It must be clear to Southerners that the retention of the right to secede from such a federation must be guaranteed by the federal constitution and by the existence of a physical Southern Armed Forces."

                      Dr. Garang understood that an independent army was required; one with an independent source of funding, a separate source of weaponry and ammunition and a line of logics...

                        In his 1972 letter to Joseph Lagu, Dr. Garang warned that the Addis Ababa Agreement would be dishonored in its entirety if the South didn’t have a truly independent army. Dr. Garang maintained that South Sudan had the right to secede but he also understood that autonomy or independence couldn’t be "guaranteed by a few phrases scribbled on some sheets of paper...

                          Allow me to quote other parts of the 1972 letter:

                          "There is no reason, absolutely no objective reason for clearheaded Southerners and Northerners alike to believe after eight years and more of continuous warfare and the repeated failures of some forms of constitutional guarantees that paper constitutional guarantees are now going to solve the war in the Sudan."

                            ..Any Southerner who holds the mistaken view that Arab Nationalism now sincere, now means good business, now gives the South local autonomy in good faith and that this autonomy will be guaranteed by a few phrases scribbled on some sheets of paper stapled and bound together and christened “ The Constitution”...

                              ..that Southerner either suffers from acute historical myopia or else advocates the treasonable stand of opportunism, national subjugation and continued Arab Chauvinism and domination; in short, such Southerner calls for surrender in a camouflaged form.

                Now you are talking, if it was the issue of gaining support, why did he accepted to kill his brother whom have the same idea with him? He should form his own movement and leave those of Samuel to straggle for their support. His slogan of first bullet to separatist spoil everything even if you claim that he has the idea. He will be known through all the history that he hijacked people’s ---

                • 14 July 13:48, by Nueri Dial

                  Ideas and the first brother killer. All people in SS rejected SPLA b/se it was looting civilian resources with slogan ’’Shala Abuk wedi Talga’’/even your father, give him bullet. That is the evident that they were not fighting Arab but their own people. They clearly made it open in 2013 till now. Dinka aim is to wipe away other tribe in South Sudan and Nuer were aware of this since 1984 Gajaak...

                  • 14 July 13:52, by Nueri Dial

Now look at where SS went into. Are you happy now? All SS including Neighbor countries are complaining of you Dinka. They consider the word from Abakasoro that where ever you go, problem follow.

                    The killing of Samuel Gai Tut was not ideologically or tribally motivated. It was an unfortunate derivative of a power struggle between two different camps, with two different ideologies and different ideas on the strategies required for the struggle...

                    • 14 July 14:18, by Khent

                      The struggle was not purely ideological, but there were notable differences in ideology; Dr. Garang had to position himself as a strict unionist in order to receive weapons, ammunition, supplies, logistical support and training from Ethiopia, Libya, Uganda and Kenya. Dr. Garang wanted to guarantee self-determination to every region of Sudan and knew that Southerners would opt for independence...

                      • 14 July 14:20, by Khent

                        The split in the leadership was thus based on ideological and personal differences, not tribal, since both Akuot Atem and Garang were Twic Dinka from Kongor district, and there were Dinka and Nuer commanders ranged on both sides.

                          Nothing was "hijacked". There were three [3] camps in Ethiopia that were essentially three [3] different movements; there was Gordon Kong’s Bilpam, Bukteng under Samuel Gai Tut and Akuot Atem, and the Adura Camp under John Garang de Mabior, William Nyuon Bany, Joseph Oduho, Martin Majer Gai, Kerubino Kuanyin Bol and others.

                            The Dinka were victims of massacres before they responded in kind. The killing of hundreds [possibly thousands] of Dinka civilians during Kokora happened before the SPLA had even arrived in Equatoria. The Dinka lost thousands of unarmed patriotic recruits [civilians at this point] to the Nuer 1 year before the Gajaak massacre.

                              Heavily armed by the Sudan, the Anyanya II attacked SPLA recruits on their way to the training camps in Ethiopia. In May 1984, more than three thousand recruits from northern Bahr el Ghazal were ambushed and massacred in the area of Fanjak, and in 1986 over two thousand were massacred in the Lou area.

The Shilluk land of Nyijwad is also not your land. You now call Nyijwad ’new Fangak’- and you stole this land from the Shilluk after Othown Dak allowed you to take refuge in their land when floods ravaged old Fangak. Hypocrites!

                                  Have you forgotten the fact that Garang also targeted Akuot Atem De Mayen, a fellow son of Twic east, and wanted him dead too!? Samuel Gai Tut and Nyuon Bany were our sons [from Dinka Hol and Twic east] whose families migrated to Nuer territory in recent memory for reasons I cannot pinpoint. We still have some of their families with us in Duk Padiet and Panyagor. It was not tribal.

                                    1. You said SPLA (organize army) Made 1984 Gajaak massacre as a revenge of Dinka non recruit killed by Anyanya I a year before. What connect Gajaak and Anyanya I?

If that is the case why do you complain that Dr.John share the same idea with them? The truth here is that, Dinka are power angry people misled themselves that they were born to rule not knowing that Nuer also have been misled that they were born to conquer! These are the two ideology we have!

Is SPLA for Dinka or for South Sudan? Is Gajaak and Community or an army? The truth is now uncovered itself.

Where did I say that they gave it away? Are you going to claim that the Burun gave away Longechuk to the Nuer in the 80s as well? The Nuer cannot condemn the Dinka when they’ve beem bullying smaller tribes and stealing their lands for decades.

He was not in good term with Kerubino and Arok Thon but he did not kill them. Can you tell me which Nuer general was kept alive prison by Dinka? From that time, no mercy b/n Nuer and Dinka and if you don’t want to admit this truth concerning the root cause, be ready for more Dinka general to die.

Each Dinka section was also considerably smaller and was invariably outnumbered by the larger Nuer sections. In every instance in which the Dinka fielded a numerically equal force to the Nuer... you were repulsed...

                                                    I’ve read up on the material relating to the dynamics in South Sudan, and the material affirms that the Nuer use to prevail against small Dinka sections solely because the Dinka were terribly disunited and fielded numerically smaller forces. You weren’t better warriors and you didn’t employ better strategies and tactics. Unity provided you with numbers and numbers were your sole advantage.

                                                    • 14 July 23:57, by Khent

                                                      The unified Nuer had raiding parties that were usually made up of 1500 men, whereas individual Dinka sections rarely mustered a defencive force above three-hundred men [300], and so it’s not all that surprising [and certainly not all that impressive] that a unified group would prevail over a divided force, that wasn’t sufficiently tribal minded and deployed a smaller force as a consequence.

                                                        The advantage of the Nuer was based on sheer numbers rather than novel military strategies or fighting techniques. The Dinka were able to repel smaller Nuer raiding parties, were familiar with Nuer tactics, and employed the same multicolumn organization of forces on their own infrequent raids.

                                                          Nuer and Dinka oral tradition fail to mention a single battle that was won by a clever new strategy. (Unto Others: The Evolution and Psychology of Unselfish Behavior, Elliott Sober)

                                                            The good old days of raiding the divided Dinka with impunity are over and are never to return. This is why you failed in 91; you declared war on the entire Dinka tribe in 91 and Bahr El Ghazal’s large Dinka sections were instrumental in your defeat; Riek’s forces experienced defeat after being pursued, hounded and cut down as far as Uror, Akobo, Nyirol, Yuai and Ayod - in the Nuer heartland.

                                                              You Nuer will learn to behave and will have to give up on the laughable idea of renaming Mading Bor "Ngundeng city" because the relatively united Dinka are not going to permit you to play games with them. If you insist on sticking to your delusions, you will become smaller than the Azande. Grow up and move on.

                                                                Dr. Garang killed a lot of Dinka Generals and politicians. Majier Gai was one of them. There are a considerable amount of Dinka people that hate Garang even today because of the numerous Dinka commanders and Generals he killed. Also, Samuel Gai Tut was killed by Kerubino — not Garang. You must be some angsty Nuer teenager based on how little you know.

In 1991, only Lou Nuer angry youth stormed Bor after you people brutally killed Nuer soldiers with their families in Your sections.

You ran to the Arabs and you still lost miserably and will always just be seen as the slave-tribe of the Arabs. Everybody in Sudan knows this. The entire SAF of over 100, 000 troops was not enough to give you victory over the Dinka. The Nuer are just ignorant children that will always play second-fiddle to their big brothers.

Do you even know why the Jikany even migrated into the lands of small Dinka sections in Upper Nile? They were almost entirey annihilated by the large Western Dinka, so they fled to sparcely populated Dinka areas that were already "softened up" by wars with the Arabs. You want proof? I’ll gladly provide it.

The Nuer did not dare act before that period; the Dinka as a whole were the dominant tribe for at least three centuries before the Arabs weakened the Dinka in Upper Nile.

    Mabior Garang de Mabior has rights to work with Dr Riek or any Nuer. Being Dinka doesn’t being you work with Kiir Mayardit. The logic is that Dinka government is worst than unseen Nuer’s. The solution is that Kiir and Riek are not good leaders, that they should go home in the nearest future.
