Equatoria Meeting in Nairobi, Kenya
April 29,2015(Nyamilepedia) — REMNASA members in diaspora have been persistently asking REMNASA Information Department about purported Equatorian meeting that is said to have be scheduled to take place in Nairobi in few days time. It is said that some Equatorians from diaspora are already being invited to attend the meeting.
REMNASA would like bring to the notice of its members that up to date REMNASA has not been informed or invited to any meeting called by Equatorians in Nairobi. However, REMNASA is aware that some two weeks back three equatorian governors traveled to Nairobi Kenya to meet the members of “Equatorian Front”under the leadership of Afred Ladu Gore.
Of course the Equatorian front is a member of the SPLM-IO. The objective of that meeting which was organized by some equatorian members of clergy was attended by the three governors, South Sudan Embassy representative and the entire leadership of “Equatorian Front” in Nairobi.
REMNASA was made to understand that the purpose of the meeting was to convince the Equatorian Front members to break away from the SPLM-IO to form a united Equatoria so as to rejoin the genocidal regime of Salva.
This was crafted in the name of uniting Equatorians inside South Sudan and outside. Though it is said that a clear agreement was not reached, the meeting resolved to form a committee that would organize an equatorian conference in Nairobi so as to forge the way forward for possible surrender to the dictatorial regime in Juba.
REMNASA therefore believes that the much talked meeting in Nairobi is this proposed meeting.
This being the case, REMNASA would like to inform its members that REMNASA is not and will never be a party to any strategy to first break the SPLM-IO.
Secondly REMNASA will never be a party to any ulterior motives or strategies to unite Equatorians with the sole aim of convincing them to join the oppressive regime in Juba.
REMNASA wonders why Equatorians would be taking this ugly step of uniting under Kiir while the regime continues to decimate the country.
If Equatorians feel that they do not want to fight the regime under the banner of the SPLM-IO then they have all the democratic rights to organize themselves to defend the Equatorian rights as separate organization that fights the regime other than supporting this calamitous governmemnt.
REMNASA has taken a decision to fight the Juba regime and therefore will continue to do so in collaboration with other South Sudanese who are also waging war to destroy the regime. No going back from here.
