October 24,/ 2015(The Bieh Telegraph)–We Bul intellectual forum in SPLM-IO condemn in stronger term possible the unilateral decision of comrade president Salva Kir for illegally annexed part of Mayom land to Abiemnom with out proper consultation from the native.This will not only amounted to future conflict but it would encourage tribal hatred to the two neighboring counties.We urge Mr, president to revers is decision of creating 28 states and heed to the call of SPLM-IO for establishing the 21 state which base on defined border line as per British colonial system.
Bul Intellectaul forum in SPLM-IO learn with dismay that,the new map release took large potion of land and surrendered to Abiemnom as per presidential decree.We in contemporary Mayom the borderline are well defined according to British colonial map, in actual sense there is no border between Abiemnom and Parieng, any attempt to link the two counties, these will not work, because it will encroach deep inside the territory of Mayom.
We reject any divisive act, and request Mr president to relocated Dinka Abiemnom and settle them in any area of his choice, whether in Parieng or any Dinka inhabited territory and leave the land to their right full owner because if its’ would have not been our mercy, than we would have not allow them to settle in our land for all these years.The story will not be rewrite again, Abiemnom land is hundred percent belong to Mayom therefore, there is no need to look through magnifying glass to prove the reality behind the scene
The period of policy of rule and divide is gone, the idea of federal systems has been south Sudanese idea championed by the SPLM-IO. We therefore request Mr. President not to wasted is precious time by created tribal states, rather to focus on peace agreement sign recently in addis- abba. We are much aware that the recent comment uttered by Salva kir in the eve of signing peace agreement and quoted ” Neither Bible nor Quran can be change, this clear indication of lack of political will of Mr President to implement the peace in spirit and letter. Bull intellectual forum in SPLM- IO is behind the leadership of Comrade Chairman Dr Riek Machar Teny and call for quick implementation of peace agreement.
