Dr. Adwok Nyaba: SPLM-IO under Riek Machar failed because of Nuer

Former Minister of High Education, Science, and Technology, Prof. Adwok Nyaba has expressed his frustration over the SPLM/A-IO led by exiled Riek Machar.

In a note seen by HIJ Adwok blamed Riek and the movement for sanctions imposed on SPLM-IO and acting ‘Nuerly.’

it is not true that the US administration sanctioned us because of the decision in the Political Bureau to pursue armed struggle.  The US administration sanctioned us because we acted nuerly (announcing publicity intention to war),” the note reads.

Adwok who is a member of SPLM-IO Political bureau also accused Riek of failing to defeat Kiir’s Government because of movement’s military strategies.

“How would Dr. Riek win military victory without organizing and sourcing a combat-capable army but preferring to rely on the Nuer white army who do not subscribe to the laws of war or to the political objective of war?” He questioned.
