The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. Ajyang and Akic were chiefs of Detwok. The army killed those two chiefs and burnt Detwok Village on 30 September 1964. The informants were Shilluks; they guided the Arabs and gave information about individuals or villages that have welcomed the Anya Nya. Those who took the army to Detwok were Shilluks. Each of them used to be given a sack of dura after every betrayal. They killed people, burned villages and shrines for just one sack of dura. Ajyag and Akic were not afraid to face death in defense of their village; they were like a shelter. The educated South Sudanese were targeted and killed, but all the teachers and officials who had no relations with Anya Nya, were exiled to Northern Sudan. The composer predicted that the Arabs will go and the exiled children of God will come back home; this is what happened in 1972 after the Addis Agreement.
