The Former Secretary General of the ruling party,  Cde. Pagan Amum Okiech blames President Salva Kiir for exterminating ten of thousands of Nuer ethic group in December 2013 and calls on him to confess his wrongdoing and apologize to the people of South Sudan for the nation to begin healing, truth and reconciliation.

Amum, who is one of the senior cadres of SPLM,  believes that the only way to restore truth and confidence among the broken communities is for prime perpetrator to admit the pain he inflicted on people. 

“As Nilotic it is there in our culture and custom to admit what went wrong and if you does then people will find a way to forgive you”, Pagan told RBC during his interview on Saturday.

When asked whether there could be a possible mean for South Sudan to get out of this current fiasco, Amum said the healing can only be achieved after perpetrators and especially country’s president publicly admits the pain he has inflicted on South Sudanese and especially on the Nuer tribe for the genocide that he led on the Nuer during the Juba massacre of 2013.

He said President Kiir is too reluctant to implement the peace deal in text and spirit because he is afraid of Hybrid Court which might try him for the crime he has committed.

” Now Kiir is not willing to implement the peace agreement because of Hybrid Court and he is not willing to investigate and come out with an accurate number of those killed in 2013 because he knows that he is not innocent”, Amum added. Nyamilepedia
