Abel Alier’s Regional Government  in Juba ,during the  Former defunct Southern Sudan Regional Automn Government  in the 80s. And Late Uncle Angelo Othow Nyikango, was also a former politician who has won many elections to   both parliament in Juba & Khartoum , and he was a member of both parliaments of Khartoum and Juba consecutively representing his people bluntly  with  loud and clear voice full of   courage and great integrity .

He truly was a very  remarkable statesman of his time ,who was also devoted entirely to serving  the common good and good cause of his people  .And he use to help  every man & woman regardless their of  tribes, religion , gender, or even their economic status .And Uncle Angelo Othow, was a devote catholic too, who was rise in the Catholic Missions in Lul area , North of Malakal town.  And as a devote  Christian , late Uncle Angelo use to be called a brother in Christ, or  in the  Catholic Church’s  terminology when he, use  to work as carpenter in  the Catholic Mission at Lul Catholic Church dicosess , during his school break holidays . And his  father Joseph Nyikango ,Akoldoung  , who is my great grand father Nyikango Akoldoung , was a  Roman Catholic Catchiest , who use to spread the words of God the work in the Chollo people, local language in Lul mission area, and beyond in the Fashodo county in the Shilluks Kingdom  . And my Uncle Angelo Othow, was real a very  humble, who live a  life full of respects ,  great  dignity plus integrity in his entire life before he was prematurely take away from us for good by the those savage so called white or black cursed Nuer’s Militias ( Nyagatas ) .Its worthy remembering that life of Uncle Angelo Othow, on Earth was real a very spectacle life that was spend helping his communities to built  schools and roads houses, bridges , and  constructing food storages  for  the vulnerable people in the Sudan, and South Sudan in particular .

And he use to advocated  for building more self help schools and health clinics and agriculture cooperation’s in Chollo’s village , and in the whole Chollo Kingdom . And if not in the entire Southern Sudan   ,  with out showing any discriminating , neither segregating against other people, because of their tribal affiliation, or religious & cultural beliefs what so ever  .

Uncle Angelo and his young nephew late Ywomo Daniel Othwol were both killed by the Nuers Wild Militias , Just  for no apparent good reasons  apart  from the Nuer’s gone wild the rampart spree of looting  , causing havoc to the Shilluk’s unarmed innocent civilians , and  the savage destruction  of  the  Chollo’s prosperities in Malakal . This was  Nuer’s evil intentions   ethnically cleanse  the Shilluks people in Malakal , while the Nuer tribe have become another  South Sudanese  Janjaweed  in Malakal, ,or  these Nyagatas (the Nuer’s White Army Militias ), are trying to copy the Hutus in Rwanda . And the  question we the family members of Late Uncle Amgelo Othow Nyikango , who was killed by orders from  Dr,Riek Machar , is that why are those savage Nuer Nyagat’s Militias , or these Nuer’s South Sudanese  Janjaweed , targeting the innocent unarmed Shilluks people. And  while at the same time Dr.Riek Machar, and  his savage Nuer Nyagat’s Militias , or his  Nuer’s South Sudanese  Janjaweed, leaving alone the Dinka villages and towns  like Shambe  where (Marial Chiunoung) comes from , Yirol –where Telar Deng Ring comes from ,  Cuiebet the Village where Daniel Awat Akot comes from , Tonj the Village where Aleu, Aleu Deng comes from  , and Aweil Village where  Paul Awa Malou comes ,  Gorgrial in general the Village where Salva Mathok comes from . And last but not last why is Dr.Riek Machar, and his savage Nue’rs Nyagat’s Militias , or his  Nuer’s South Sudanese  Janjaweed, not invading and targeting the Gorgrial- Village of Awan Achan , which is the village where  president Salva Kiir , and what is particular about Malakal town and the Shilluks, that is being targeted by Dr.Riek Machar, and  his savage Nuer’s Nyagat’s Militias , and  his  Nuer’s who are the new Janjaweed of South Sudanese,
