Dear Mr. J. Ojoch,

Good morning? My name is Peter Chuol Biel Badeang. I am a Nuer from Latjor State. I would like to say thank you very much for your recent article about the Nuer monopolizing Anuak land. First of all, I would like to say that I have enjoy reading your article at its entirely although I completely disagree with some of your points.

However, I must add that we the Nuer and Anuak are brothers. Therefore, we must learn how to live together as one family. Why am I saying this?  Because Anuak and the Nuer are sharing two borders; the border of Ethiopia and that of Southern Sudan. In my opinion, unless the two tribes learn a new ways to live life together on their own I believe no government of any form will teaches them to behave themselves as some may think.

Reason why? I believe those governments will always have an Anuak leaders in them and likewise the Nuer will always be present in those governments as well.  As I have mention above that I am Nuer from the Latjor State, personally I love Anuak. I must learn to live together with Anuak whether I like them or not, therefore, I must learn to love them as a part of family without any question. I believe it is likewise for Anuak individuals.
In conclusion, your points are well taken by me. But, I must tell you that the killing of Anuak tribe by Dinka was not a calculated act of the Nuer politicians from the Nasir faction as you have put it my brother. Why? Beacuse Dinka were acting alone against the Anuak people. I hope you will also agree with me in that because when Dinka torture the Topusa tribe, Acholi, the Zude, the Nuer of Gajaak, and other which I may not mention at this friendly e-mail was not a calculated act by the Nuer politicians too.

Anyway, this is not a debate between me and you. But, I really love to receive a feed back from you my brother if you don't mind. Because long times ago I have many Anuak friends in the Sudan as well as in the SPLA/M. May be I will be able to be connected with them once again since you seem well connected to the Anuak Community worldwide.

Thank you very dearly.

Truly Yours,
