    A letter to Nuer Community in Diaspora


    Lt. Gen. Paulino Matip Nhial

    SPLA Deputy Commander in Chief

    April, 1st, 2009

    Hello, Nuer Community in Diaspora:

    First and foremost, I want to take a moment once again to thank all the members of Nuer Community in Diaspora particularly those in North America, Australia and Europe. Many of you are aware that I came to the United States of America seeking for the best possible medical treatment for my health problems. I would like to thank each and every one of you for the unprecedented warm welcome to the United States of America. I will try and do my very best to maintain your expectations for the Nuer community. It is indeed a great pleasure to meet all of you in person; some of you have driven cars for five hours, ten hours and even for sixteen hours to come to meet me. Others have jumped the phone lines like never seen before, while others kept praying constantly for my quick recovery.

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    I want to take this opportunity to remind you that our community back home is facing enormous challenges during this transitional period from war- to- peace. Our community is considered to be particularly vulnerable to high level of insecurity, poverty, displacement, and breakdown of social services. We must realize that we are not just a collection of individuals; we are and always will be Nuer Community born of the same mother, same father, and share the richest values you could imagine. Under my watch throughout my entire career I served this community with profound gratitude, great humility, dedication, commitment and with unyielding compassion.

    I, therefore, want you to put all your differences aside and work for values that go beyond your own personal pride and ego. I am calling on you to step up the pressure on those elements who are working hard to tear down the walls of peace built with sacrifices of our brothers and sisters’ blood. It’s in the best interest of our community to live in peaceful atmosphere and harmony with ourselves and with other communities that should be guided by mutual respect.

    Today, we need to realize our opportunities and blessings in the Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), among them a committed, too many and capable army to depend the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) and ultimately will secure a prosperous, peaceful, secular South Sudan in 2011.

    In the past few weeks, I was deeply saddened about the brewing controversy over who won the presidential contest in the Nuer Community Development Service USA election that took place in Omaha, Nebraska on December 27 2008. I felt this controversy has widely divided our community into small pieces; the division was clear fitting friend against friend, brother against brother, sister against sister, and man against a woman. It’s important that we face this controversy head on for the sake of life-giving truth. Running away from it is not the best answer and is a sign of cowardice, which we couldn’t afford at this critical moment in our life time.

    The purpose of this letter is to urge the entire members of Nuer community in the United States of America to go back and conduct free and fair election guided by positive campaign to choose who will lead them for the next two years and also to reach out in making just peace with other tribes of southern Sudan.

    The return to election that I proposed during the important meeting that took place in my resident in Prior Lake, MN on March 28th, 2009 was made possible by unprecedented courage, humility and respect from both Nuer community presidential candidates Mr. Brown Both Bol and Mr. Khon Kueth Mar. I also would like to recognize, acknowledge and appreciate the humility exercised by each and every one of you during that meeting that renewed our hopes and love for one another.

    In closing, I want you to know that life has never been easy to any one and no one is immune from facing real difficulties. The only way forward is to remain strong, vigilant, and look forward with enthusiasm knowing that our community is united more than ever back home and here in Diaspora as well. This will enable us to bring the most needed unity with other communities in Southern Sudan and in the Government of Southern Sudan.

    God Bless Nure Community Unity!

    God Bless Southern Sudanese Communities!

    God Bless Government of Southern Sudan, SPLM/A!

    God Bess the United States of America!!

    It has been a great move for Paulino Matip to express these motive words to Nuer community in diaspora even though it is not easy for us here in wildeness to cooperate as we suppose to be. we will keep trying to unite as General Paulino Matip as mentioned till we ban out the legacy of tribalism and sectionism in our communities which still plays a big role among us due to lack of eduction. majority of us trust only their cousins and nephews when it comes to term of our unity. we will never unite if we keep acting like that. this is an old schools traditional way of life. we need to change the way we act, live, and think. Changes do not come over night but we will sacrify our ability to encourage those who do not like unity because of greed or whatsoever to accept love and peace among us.God can keep Matip's spirit till some changes in Nuer community emerge. this General have fought for Nuer rights and respect in Sudan since 1984. young generations love these kind of elderly people such as Matip because they motivate the future of their communities. Matip did not fight for his own self benefit like other Anya Anya Two such as Tang Ginya who invaded his people and peace in Malakal because of money given to him by Arab in the North . if he did, he would not join SPLM after the CPA. he is doing a great job now in Juba promoting Nuer educated young men to high ranks in military so one day we will change the system of governemnt in South Sudan to Nuer democatic system which God had given us since the creating of human race. I like Matip and I hope everyone of Nuer feels the same way like me. let pray and God keep his soul till the end of Dinka reign in south sudan.

    the more you know the more you do not know if you do not cooperate with your community
