Opinion by Galuak Kang chol

Truth matters, both to us as individuals and to society as a whole. As individuals, being truthful means we can grow and mature, learning our mistakes. 

With due respect, it may seem strange to those who exceedingly convinced themselves against the truth but it will fall into the ears of the truth-tellers and those who believe in enduring reality.

They normally say, truthfulness makes social bond and lying and hypocrisy break them. 

Hon. Duer Tut who has been disturbing the social media ever since he has been isolated from the OI activities and now portraying himself as reformist more than the chairman and the rest of the members, he has once defected to Kiir in 2016 with the group of Taban Deng Gai. 

His defection happened during the conspiracy that was organized against ( IO) by the government of Kiir and Gen. Taban in 2016. 

During that moment, when (OI) was pushed to the bushes, the health status of the chairman was not clear, nobody was aware that he either still live or died. However, Hon. Duer Tut was convinced by Gen. Taban Deng Gai to work with him and he accepted it thinking that the chairman may not be alive. But Hon. Duer Tut was sick at that very moment and he later convinced Gen., Taban Deng, that, let me go to the hospital and join you in the process as you have seen my health status is not stable. Gen. Taban didn’t hesitate, he grants him, he gave him huge money for treatment and Hon. Duer Tut fled to Egypt and left his wife with Gen. Taban Deng and Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth which fundamentally led his wife to be Ezikiel Lol’s wife up to now.

When Hon. Duer landed in Cairo, he was received by Eastern Jikany youth and taken to hospital and later told to clear the air after some days because he still a governor of defunct Sobat state by then but Duer told those youth that, let Dr. Riek first clear his position and I will tell you my position afterward. 

The youth asked him, why do you care about Dr. Riek’s position? He said, he is the chairman of the movement and the youth got disappointed and they immediately started calling some elders and informed them about the unclear political position of Hon. Duer Tut. 

At that very moment, Dr. Riek was in the bush and his life was in danger and he is later lifted to Congo and Khartoum after some days. When Dr. Riek arrived in Khartoum he was immediately informed about the lack of political consistency of Hon. Duer Tut and he called Duer without delay and he found out that Hon. Duer is not a member of the movement any longer and he removed him from the position of governorship after some days.

Hon. Duer Tut was promised with the position of the governorship of defunct latjor state by Gen. Taban Deng but president  Kiir been turning it down because he does not like Duer due to his weird working relation and other factors well known to him. Now when Hon. Gatkouth Khor realized that Hon. Duer will not make it to the position of the governorship, he immediately joined Gen. Taban Deng and appointed as the governor of the defunct Latjor state without delay.

From there, Hon. Duer found himself out of political boundaries in the camp of Gen. Taban Deng Gai and rejoined (IO) while he completely lost trust from the leadership but he was received because in politics you can not deny the membership of those who want to rally behind your objectives. 

If you think, am lying, ask Gen. Taban Deng Gai if you have communication with him, ask Gen. Gathoth Gatkuoth, ask Hon. Simon Kun pouch and many more.
