Jan 3, 2014(Nyamilepedia) — We, the Nuer youths in Ethiopia strongly condemn the renewed campaign by President Kaguta Musuveni of Uganda’s refusal to withdrawal from the territory of South Sudan. The refusal by President Musuveni to order his troop out of the territory of South Sudan indicates his real intention to assist the genocidal regime of Kiir to conduct more genocide in the country.
Continuous refusal of Uganda People Defense Forces (UPDF) South Sudan represents a real obstacle to the imminent peace being mediated by Inter – Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) that we are strongly committed to. As it signified unwillingness to commit to the signed agreement by parties under IGAD auspice that calls for withdrawal of alliances forces of Salva Kiir that he had invited to protect his rotten regime and carry out genocide.
The President Musuveni’s absurd claim that the present of UPDF in South Sudan is to prevent genocide and atrocities is wrong and unbelievable. We are freedom fighters and our objective is to liberate and free people of South Sudan from the dictatorial regime of Salva Kiir. The international community needs to be clear that, the present of UPDF in South Sudan, instead has been helping the government in Juba to carry out more genocide. UPDF have been indiscriminately spraying bombs on the civilians, and have used even, the internationally banned cluster bombs on the civilians. The present of Uganda troops in South Sudan amounts to occupation and colonization of the country, and looting of its resources. Therefore, we call on people of South Sudan to reject the colonization of South Sudan by Uganda.
Musuveni is aware that President Salva Kiir caused the conflict in the country to implement his planned genocide against the Nuer ethnic group, and himself have rejected Kiir’s falsely and shamelessly coup claim in the country.
In this regard, we call on IGAD, UN, EU, US and troika group to unconditionally pressure Uganda troop from the territory of South Sudan.
Also, we condemn in the strongest term possible the recent murdering of civilians who were running for safety of their lives by Kiir’s tribal army in Unity State.
