Australia, February 20, 2015 (SSNA) -- The Lou Nuer Community Association Of Australia Inc. hereafter condemn in the strongest term possible and denounce the defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai Koang back to Salva Kiir government.

It is to be made abundantly clear that this individual defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai Koang back to the dictatorial regime in Juba is a personal surrender to the very system we have been fighting against for over thirteen months and does not constitute the interest or the position of Lou Nuer people toward this current conflict.

Lou Nuer sons and daughters in the diaspora denounce this defection of Brigadier General Lul Ruai back to the dictatorial incumbent regime. We urge all Lou Nuer youth, politicians, military leaders, traditional leaders and the general public to remain united and never to be divided by such personal surrender.

We must remain united and continue to support and stand firm with SPLM-IO for our people to attain justice, freedom and equality. We must never compromise our human dignity or betray our heroic people’s struggle only to be trap by bribery, opportunistic political position and blood money. We’re far better than that.

Our people collective interest, the reputation and image of Lou Nuer People is supreme to that of individual or group and must not be used or misuse by individual who forsake or betray justice for the victims of December 15th Juba massacre and that of this conflict, this is not acceptable.

Brig. General Lul Ruai Koang has tarnish and destroy his then thriving personal reputation and by returning to Juba he had betray justice for the door-to-door ethnic cleansing of innocent Nuer civilians and the victims of this conflict.

We the people of Greater Lou Nuer will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with Dr Riek Machar the C-in C of SPLM/SPLA-IO and the rest of the country to tussle and bring justice to December 15th victims.

Lou Nuer Community Association of Australia Inc. would like to reassure our comrades in the movement under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Tany that;

  • Lou Nuer people will never betray accountability and justice to the victims of December 15th.
  • Lou Nuer people will never stab the movement at the back, because we did not took arm neither to serve individuals interest nor to accumulate personal wealth. Therefore no one, not a single person in Lou Nuer Holly land will support Brigadier Lul Ruai. His defection does not represent the interest of community as a whole but himself
  • The leadership and people of Lou Nuer in Australia are substantially standing behind the movement and the leadership of the movement and will continue to do so until our goal is achieved.
  • We will never rest until perpetrators of the December 15th are brought to book.
  • We will never cease our support to SPLM-IO until our people are liberated from the dictatorial regime in Juba.
Long live Borchaar
Long live Lou Nuer

SPLM-in opposition Canada statement on the defection of General Lul Ruai Koang

For Immediate Release
February 18th, 2015

Canada, February 18, 2 015 (SSNA) -- The SPLM/SPLA office in Canada would like to take this opportunity to clarify some misinformation in the light of comrade Gen. Lul Ruai Koang’s defection to the Government of South Sudan under Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit as of 18th of February 2015.

In this regard, the people of South Sudan and especially the supporters of the SPLM/SPLA –Resistance Movement and the gallant forces of the Freedom Fighters under the able leader Dr. Riek Machar ought to know nothing but truth.

Therefore, it’s unfortunate to the public that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrendered to the government of Salva Kiir and did not form alleged new Armed Group. The claim that Mr. Lul has formed a new Armed Group was a purge to confuse the general public about Gen. Lul Ruai’s surrender to the genocidal government that has killed 20, 000 innocent Nuer civilians in cold blood.

At the time of writing this press release, our SPLM/SPLA office in Nairobi, Kenya has confirmed that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has made the pronouncement of his defection to the government in a public briefing organized by the Government of South Sudan’s Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya.

While in the briefing, comrade Lul Ruai himself was accompanied by none other than Mr. Paul Malong Awan, the current Chief of General Staff in the Government of South Sudan, Mrs. Rachel Nyadak Paul, Deputy of Minister of Information and broadcasting in the Government of South Sudan, Gen. Philip Aguer Panyang, current Military spokesman in the government of South Sudan, Mr. Ghai Riam, former of Minister of Cabinet Affairs in Jonglei State and still with the government and Mr. Paul Bol who is also a staunch supporters of Salva Kiir Mayardit’s genocidal.  

Besides, the people of South Sudan should also ascertain Gen. Lul Ruai Koang’s cowardice surrender to the genocidal government of South Sudan under along these lines in his press release:

1.Cognizant that the ongoing civil war caused by December 15th, coup attempt has resulted to huge human losses of lives and properties;”

2.Mindful that Dr. Riek is soliciting support from the Government of the Republic of Sudan in order to continue to destabilizing the country and

3.Concerned that Dr. Riek Machar continues to obstruct peace by presenting impossible demands which in turn make it difficult to achieve peace in short time."

These statements and circumstance of which Lul Ruai made his pronouncement are serious indications and proved that comrade Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrender to the same ruthless regime that he once rightful criticized of being genocidal and authoritarian to the core.

In closing, we would like to urges our people to remind calm and inform our supporters that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrendered to President Salva Kiir’s genocidal regime alone.

And above all else, your movement, the SPLM/SPLA will never betray people’s cause on short change. We are committed and determined to bring lasting peace to South Sudan by whatever mean necessary.

To bring this lasting peace to realization, the SPLM/A shall ensure that the root cause to the conflict is addresses amicably and culture of impunity completely discarded once and for all.

Victory is certain and we are committed to stay the course!
