*Sept 15, 2016(Nyamilepedia)* —– Nuer peoples’ lives and future are in
crisis. And cities and towns, especially those populated by Nuer are
bearing the brunt of the devastation. Everyone knows this. The United
Nations (UN) knows this. The United States of America (USA) knows this. The
Great Britain (GB), the Europeans Union (EU) and the African Union (AU)
know this, too. Everyone knows that Salva Kiir is committing an ethnic
cleansing against innocent Nuer civilians in his quest to eliminate the
entire population and take over their oil-rich land.
Everyone agrees that Kiir removable from power is not only desperately
needed, but critical to both ending the Nuer suffering and bringing about
peace and stability to South Sudan and the region at large.
Yet, no one wants to do what It takes to make the changes necessary. No one
seems willing to stop the genocide and the ethnic cleansing against
innocent Nuer people. Bluntly stated, the world has failed to value their
lives. That they cannot rely on the UN to protect them.
But for those who do not know the Nuer history, I have this to say to you:
In a normal circumistance, Nuer would be the last people to beg for help,
for in fact, history tells us that they have never, ever been defeated by
any other tribe in Sudan/ South Sudan, including Dinka (Jieeng). Matter of
fact, the opposite is the truth here. The tables are only turned over now
because they are fighting against Dinka and Uganda combined.
Today, Dinka automatically assume that the Nuer are up to no good. The
assumptions cannot lead to a peaceful co-existence. Now, I am not getting
ahead of myself, but I predict that sooner than later the Nuer will come to
realize they will be better off in a country of their own.
South Sudan is big enough.
