March 8, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — While the world is busy with peace discussion in Addis Ababa, Kii’r troops are undermining the peaceful process; this is an indication of serious lack of government’s committed to peace negotiations.
- The Government is preparing for what they called; dry season offensive with all heavy weaponry and equipments, launching attacks on our forces in five fronts:
- Government is preparing to launch an attack from Kodok to our positions in Wadakona west Nile. While doing the same towards Mathiang and Maiwut front.
- Today early morning government troops attacked our positions in Jerbeni and Dukduk around Renk and Maban our forces repulsed these attacks scoring casualties on the enemy.
Such a move at this time is intended to obstruct the long awaited peace process by people of South Sudan.
- Call for the peace loving bodies to intervene:
IO-Military leadership registers its sincere intentions to peaceful settlement to this conflict. Thus we appeal for the International community and friends, Regional bodies in persons of IGAD mediation team, AU, Tanzanian, and Troika, including Ethiopian leadership who tirelessly hosted this Peace process to intervene in containing government’s ill intentions.
