God is not a man who can change his mind to denounce His servant whom He truly called for holy services. God ways are not our ways and His thought is not our thoughts. We found in the Bible that people who pretend to be holy such Pharisees and Sadducees, their wicked intention publicly was exposed by Jesus, by telling them that you are only clean outwardly but inner they greedy and evil doers.

Jesus demands them that they should be kind and fair in dealing with public affairs that affecting the life of people. In other words, they must carry out justice; equal treatment and right to people exist without favoritism. But as result of their lack of sense of humanity Jesus told them that they are like unmarked graves that people walk on without knowing it. Again, Jesus challenges such religious political parties that load people with heavy burdens which they cannot carry. Indeed, because of their evil deeds, the wisdom of God said, ‘’I will send prophets and apostles to you. You will murder some and ill-treat other. You people living today will be punish for all the prophets who have been murdered since the beginning of the world’’ (Luke 11:49-50).

Some political parties are not happy with the church’s position on issues of corruption and segregation they practicing, they want church to remain dormant not to speak out against their malpractices. Please let observe what Jesus said to His audiences that ‘’their father is the devil and they did exactly what he wants. He has always been a murderer and a liar. There is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own and everything he says is a lie. Not only that he is a liar but he is also the father of all lies’’

Therefore, if Jesus himself challenged the leaders of his day sharply, is it not applicable for his body the church to do the same to corrupted leaders of our days? The church is aware about the implication of their boldness against destructive system that killed it own citizens without concrete founding reasons. Jesus says because of your boldness cause’’ the people of this world will hate you not because you are evil doers but because you challenge their evil deeds’’ (see John 15:18ff). Moreover, John the Baptist told the Pharisees and Sadducees who came to be baptized, these were religious parties that supported corrupted system for political gain, and such religious parties were welcome by system because they never challenge the system. But the man of God, John the Baptist told them blankly that they are‘’snakes’’ which means they were poison to God’s people. Then it was necessarily for them to confess their sins in order to avoid God’s judgment and they must bring fruits that indicate their true repentant (see Matthew 3:7-1o).

Indeed, according to these biblical teaching the church has spiritual obligation and mandatory task to challenge this world so that God’s people may live in peace and harmony. The church has full right to correct all bad things that threaten the existence of human beings on earth. Some ignorant politicians who are not believers never know the church stand, this is why they want church to be silence and dormant. Take it from me, any passive church that compromise with the sins committed by any political party that church is no long God agent on this earth but it has becomes executer of devil work unknowingly. For this reason God’s servants must not be affiliated into any political because he will not challenge wrong things committed by his party, when church goes in bad with the Government, automatically the people will suffer in the hand of the Government because no one who could challenge that system. In any political institution members will not stand on behalf of people but they will stand on behalf of their organization with hidden agenda for ruling purpose only.

Here let me point some facts to Uncle Dr. Peter, any person who has no sympathy and compassionate heart to grievance people may be regarded as unhealthy and un-sound minded or a person who loss his humanity and he is living in stage of wild beast in human form. What happen in our home land need our consolation and comfort to grievance even if they are your enemy no1? Please could you internalize your political frustration for the sake of stability in Chollo.

As Chollo veteran politician since the innocent took place, what have you said so far about the situation that dehumanized your own people apart from regarding them as weak and poor people, who will lose their land for good, and blindly you labeled the whole community to be a supporters of SPLM-DC that seem to be a chronic disease in your brain. Uncle Nyaba has you forgotten your own statement, which said Chollo were just reactionary against the GOSS during election, this is why they failed every member of SPLM who contested the election; arguing that such government that never resolved their conflict over the land issue should not be given chance to rule over them again, politically is normal but for Africans leaders is not normal, this crucial reasons they massacred their own subjects who opposed their will.

What come to my mind in this website is that you want everybody to condemn the SPLM- DC as cause of insecurity in Malakal and you want to avoid root cause of conflict. Please let cure the disease and not the symptom, because in long run the patient will die from illness due to mismanagement of disease. Do you want everybody to believe that DC is true cause of conflict, when was this poisonous party formed. All know before it formation there was conflict in the area. What is the logic in your proclamation? Please your enmity with the leader of SPLM-DC should not destroy Chollo community. I’m sure there are innocent people who did not know your chronic problem with Dr. Lam.

I’m totally Shockley to hear from you that you seem to accuse me that I had took Oyay and Tijwok statement out of context. Uncle Nyaba be honest with yourself and tell the public what made Nyakwachkwon Nyawol to express that even if you kill the present children, they will continue giving birth to more children who will take arms to liberate there land from invaders. Again, what made the chief of Dur to address Oyay as liar? In that forum Tijwok accused Presbyterian Church especial Chollo congregation of backing SPLM-DC party, and he had exclaimed that he has removed his collar to join politic, this is not unfortunate guy who miss the true call. Uncle you will not deny what those guys said in Malakal because everything was documented by video.

I would be much interested if you could let the public know the fact you hold about the fighting in Dur. Please the threaten language you seem to be using will not shaken my position even if it demand my life. Be assured that I will not remove my collar as some member of your party denounces their holy calls. Please I had told you several times that I\'m not the member of the party you are in conflict with. Both of you are rivalry to be Lord over Chollo community but if you done humble yourself for their cause belief me both of you will not win the heart of people. Can you proof to the readers that what I said is not in place rather than living people in desert without having path. Tell us exactly what those guys said in Malakal in order to repute what I say as lies.

Dr. Nyaba hiding the fact will not cure the disease you are suffering from. It is much better to diagnose the disease rather than treating the symptom of illness. What public is suffering by know is symptom of your war with Dr. Lam. Do you want to victimize Chollo for your political gain? Why done you meet face to face to resolve your chronic problem that enslaves you for long time. If you have personal enmity with Dr. Lam why done you deal with him instead of killing people for the cost of your own problem. The madness killing your forces is practice is kind of humiliation to Chollo people to surrender their well to your ambitious leadership. Please if you want to be effective leader in Chollo kingdom, you must stand with them in their tribulations, but what kind of leader that enjoy suffering of his people, which he wish to to rule. Please you will not win Chollo hearts by killing them or threatening them that they will lose their land if they continue to support criminal party which has militia. What about militia of Upper Nile Governor whom he brought to Malakal town during the time of incident to protect him, does it mean SPLA forces could not protect him. Those militias brought in by Governor tried to robed Ivory Bank in Malakal, you never uttered a word about them because the Governor is the member of your party. What is done party member is legitimate and can be pardon but is done by other party is the sin and should be punish. What is hypocrisy mentality play by your party?

Here let me give credit to Oyay Deng, because he was the only man who told the Governor to remove back his militias and stressed that all SPLA forces in every location must be gather in big towns. But bothering question is why did GOSS allowed Upper Nile Governor to have militias? Honestly Oyay would have win the heart of attendances if had began his speech with consolation words to audiences, but and how his final remarks was welcome.

Dr. Nyaba, you seem to be very happy when bad things befall on your community this is why you called them weak and poor, we though such person like you could have been source a blessing to entire community but your argument in this forum seem to be calling curse on the whole community, this is why young generation critic you badly in their respond to your writings.

    I don't have nothing to say to Adok Nyaba than he is just anopther mad dog. Your time is coming when they are going to kick your ass out of the power as they did to Oyay Deng Ajack, stop being use by people whom are killing your people because they want to take the land. Yes Daniel Amum Odwel is a Rev. but that will not stop him from telling the truth about wrong doing that is going on in the area. I feel sick to write on Adok Nyaba article because he always act like a college student.

    I have been kin to avoid confrontation, especially among Chollo and on the core issues of ethnicity,because it will not benefit any. But very astonishing that some people choice to deviate from reality like you Dr.Nyaba.What I expected from you is to be logical in your argument and show that the other person is on wrong footing with concrete reasoning.I fail to understand politics of indoctrination and indomitableness.When SPLM/SPLA was fighting the so called war of liberation, some people were overseas yet they claimed to be fighters of that war like me in the diaspora. So it is not necessary that all of us could be at home by now because I believe that those at home are more in number than the few at diaspora.I will support those at home if help is needed. So it should not be a point of discussion for those lucky people who build castles at home.

  • Dear Dr. Nyaba,
    Thank for your reply, I appreciated your position in regard to issues facing your community. Personally I’m in agreement with you that there is a political difference between you and Lam. To me is normal but my problem is why do we used those differences to destroy our community? Deeply I’m in tear when you expressed that it is not Chollo affairs, but whose affairs is it? Does it mean Chollo must keep quiet because it is not their affairs?.
    Dr. Nyaba, take note when I reply your comments I did not do it as member of Panyidway community but I responded as Amum Odwel, and when I wrote my article I did not share with Panyidway for that matter, so what bring Panyidway here. If you have problem with Panyidway community it is up to you and none of my business. I’m not short sight who could not see behind his nose, I’m true Ochollo and southern who have compassionate heart that is not happy with tribulations affecting any community in the South.
    Dr. Nyaba, honestly I did not utter words that deny your contribution in two wars or your participation in governmental institution, please forgive me if I undermine your achievement, for I don’t have envy for your great achievement. Uncle Nyaba what is a real fight you are requesting me to come out for apart from intellectual war we are wagging in this website.
    Interestingly, what make you to name yourself with foreign name such as ‘’Peter’’ which mean rock if you done believe in that God. Again, what forced you to quote what foreign God says: ‘’Give what belong to Caesar and to God what belong to God’’. What language have you used to obtain your education achievement, was it not foreign language, why have you not used your mother language to obtain that achievement, even here we are using the foreign language for communication, why are we use it?
    Uncle Nyaba feel free that I give you green light to just call me Amum Odwel Ayong rather than using foreign name such as Daniel, I will be very comfortable and feel at home and even I will be very proud for that matter.
    Thanks
    Amum Odwel

  • Dear. Dr. Nyaba

    I sincerely had sense the phobia of losing political position that had enslaved many leaders, so that they never become outstanding spokesmen for their community. allowed mt to compare that phobia with what happened to Israel when God rescued them from captivity in Egypt. ‘’When they saw Pharaoh marching after them, people of Israel were terrified with great fear. And people of Israel cried out to the LORD and they said to Mosses. Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this what we said to you in Egypt? Let us alone and let use serve the Egyptians? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians then to die in the wilderness. And Moses said to the people. Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today; for Egyptians whom you see today, you will never again see; the LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be still’’(Ex.14:10-14).
    In the light of this quotation I would like to assure Uncle Nyaba that foreign God that delivered Israel people from powerful nation at that time will rescued oppress people from brutal government that eliminate it own people for unfounded reasons. Another encouraging passage to strength you, for you were being over taken by phobia, you can find it in the book of Esther. Mordecai was part of system in Foreign country where he was taken as slave. When he learned the plot against his people, he never keep quiet, but rent his clothes and put on sack clothes and ashes and went out into the midst of city to protest, wailing with loud and biter cried to draw the attention of the leaders that there is a problem. He sacrifices his life for sake of his people. His determination had encouraged fearful Esther to approach the king on behalf of his people even if her approach was unusual and probated by the law of that nation. Indeed, because of personal concern for his people, she sacrifices and endangers her own life for the sake of his people. Uncle Nyaba tries to internalize the words of Mordecai to Esther which said: ‘’Thank not that in the king’s palace you will escape any more then all Jews. For if you keep silence at such a time as this, relief and deliverance will rise for Jews from another quarter, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this’’ (Esther 4:13-14). In this passage Mordecai was pleading with Esther to utilize her being queen to curb the situation facing his people.
    Personally I thought your position as an elder politician within ruling party in South could enable you to rescue your people from the tragedy facing them, but your much attention is on the party agenda more than your people, who are being massacre in your eyes.
    Respectfully I called you Uncle not because you are in my father age mate but I base this calling on the family link ground. For you and me we are in same generation. ‘’Blood is more thicker than political party we may be affiliated into,’’ I stand with what Apostle said: I become Gentiles to win Gentiles to God kingdom. In other words I stand with oppress, in order to speak on their behalf not as party member but as man of God. I don’t have political color as Uncle Nyaba wishes me to be. In coming days be assure that we will meet in Malakal face to face to challenge the situation. If you think people are away because of fear, you are wrong.
    Best regards,
    Amum Odwel (Akwoc)

  • Dear readers,

    Please allowed me to make some corrections, instead of using the word incident I had used the word innocent. And the word well instead of will.

    What is done by your party member is legitimate and can be pardon but if it is done by other party is the sin and should be punish. What is hypocrisy mentality play by your party?
    Thanks,
    Amum Odwel

    Dr Adwok Nyaba, you are Dinka man or perhaps you have lost your compassion on your people. If you think that Shilluk “Collo “should come back to their villages, how could this happen if Dinka militias are staying in those villages and they are still protecting by SPLM/A.I think you have misplaced your argument when you called Rev .Daniel is one of the politician. Rev. Daniel Amum is a man of God and what he have told you is a fact and genuine comparing with senseless and wicked Ministers like you and and others whom are glorify when the Dinkas SPLM/A are doing genocide in Shilluk "COLLO" Land. I believe that if I were one of you I will resign from my post. Unfortunately you are still saving a wicked government.
    Moreover I can not blame you for not inspired that but the oppressor has represented you to be. However these vary attitude shows your ignorance and mindless dependence up on the enemy to serve them. Those who destroy your people that can be made you proud please think before you talk.
    Now I believe that what you have been written during the last 2 weeks and many years has been mainly for the purpose of bringing you in the where you are today and holding you the post.

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    We are doing too much harm to ourselves as Chollo. The outsiders do really laugh at us as we continue mudslinging, villifying, character-assassinating ourselves like that.

    Why don't we come down and address our internal wrangling more responsibly as one people? Our sons, Amum, Oyai, Nyaba and Lam should come together, reconcile, address their differences and start working as one people for the good and interest of the Chollo. Political parties will soon vanish, but we as people of Chollo Kingdom will remain. Why don't we sit down and think about this for a minute?

    This is my first time to comment in this cyberspace discussion outlet. I am instigated by the bad and harmful level of the exchanges that continue to go on unabatedly. A place of this sort is supposed to be a medium for sharing useful information, strategizing on how to help our people and consolidate our fraternity and unity. That it has been turned to a battlefield is something very sad and ridiculous, at best.

    Dear Okech Alany
    though i semi-support your openion, yet the issue at state is not protecting ourselves as Collo, bcause not all Collo are, imagine if you are fighting with an enemy and Ocollo shows the enemy your hiding place like what the black legs use to do in the first war? These guys are keeping quite to keep their positions and to convince others that defending yourself goes against SPLM and GOSS.What we were demanding of them is to caution the government they serve that there are red lines. Dr. Adwok Nyaba will call people names that is nature he is to crocket to reform he has no respect for any ceature.There is no point not confronting SALVA kiir that Piji ia illigal because it is established in Collo land and tender you resignation. Dr. WAlter Kinijwok once resigned the government of Sadig because of troubles in Collo land. Where is Adwok Nyaba people heard of confronting Garang? He protects a usless post in which he never spent 5 days in office always on the move. nor had he done any thing about southern students in the universities.Where ever he placed admistrative ability, things are so spoilled beyond recognition. He and his friends in SPLM ARE BAD SYMBLES of Collo.The SPLM culture of we know had spiled those guys. never count on them as Collo becaused some are actually hired, especially after failling the April elections they can destroy Collo with no remorse.Alooser has nothing to protect.

    Your Excellency Sir;
    Its a pleasure to write to you congratulating you of the current appointment as the Minister for Higher Education for the Republic of South Sudan.
    Am a teacher trainer working for the Episcopal Church of the Sudan-Juba. I read through the book you authored titled "Politics of Liberation in South Sudan". You have really tried your best to inform the people of South Sudan about how they ought to manage their national affairs without resorting to violence. You discussed in detail the wrong approach used by the Nasir Faction of 1991 in handling the political situation of south sudan, & you equally gave a way forward of how they should have done it without using force to change things overnight. When I read that book & compared it to the situation which rocked North Africa from January 2011, I really beleived that you are 100% right. No body could believe that, leaders like Gaddafi, Mubarak & Ben Ali of Libya, Egypt & Tunisia respectively, could be overthrown in such a simple manner. But because the roots of democracy was gaining momentum in the hearts & minds of the north Africans, the changes have come with minimal damages, & its what is really encouraged in society. whoever doesn't want change, chnage will chang him/her when the time comes Continue to educate us the more to purify the societies of south sudan so that they don't look at the use of force as a means of chnaging the status quo of any existing system.
    I would have written congratulating you of your book but failed to access your e-mail. I would have done it physically if there was access to meet you, but has been difficult.I think its better when you can put your contacts on any of your books that you produce to enable people access you easily for knowledge. Do more to improve on our education System in South Suda. Congratulations.
