August 08, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The office of SPLM/A Deputy and Acting Representative to the United Republic of Tanzania would at this critical moment in the history of our nation like to call upon all our esteemed supporters, friends and sympathizers inside and outside the borders of South Sudan to be patience, united and to stand strong behind our delegation to the ongoing peace talks in Addis Ababa. I want to bring into your attention that our delegation is blessed by our Chairman with the strong support of the leadership to negotiate in good faith in order to return peace to South Sudan and end suffering of our people.
The government of Salva Kiir as we all know expire on July 8th, 2015, and in order for him to continue governing the country as president, he has to be mandated through election. But for the sake of peace, SPLM/A under the visionary, democratic and charismatic leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon as always chose peace instead of war to end suffering of our people. We know who is against peace in South Sudan, but we should not lose hope, we must continue to be strong and united behind our leadership. The office of the Representative also calls our political and military leaders to rally behind Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon and not accept any manipulation from the outsiders to divide the movement for their interest. The enemies of peace and prosperity are working hard to divide the movement since the start of the conflict but failed miserably because we know why we are in the bush and cannot be manipulated by opportunists and non- nationalists to betray the cause for which our people sacrifice and stand for. I congratulate and salute you all for standing behind our leader comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon and urge you to continue to do so in order to bring about freedom, democracy, justice and equality to our people.
It is high time for you now to unite and to support our team in Ethiopia. We must be strong in order to overcome the strategies of those who wants to weaken us using divide and rule tactics. Negotiation of peace requires patience, wisdom and unity on the side of the mediators, negotiators and as well as on our side as supporters, military and political leadership of the movement. I want to assure you that those who are saying we are divided are the ones that are terribly divided and we ask them to stay away from our business. They are saying this in order to divert attention from the serious internal differences among themselves. I am happy and proud to inform you all our Dear comrades, friends and sympathizers that SPLM/A under comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny is growing stronger each an every day, and will never let you down as promised in our programmes.
SPLM/A under the visionary and democratic leadership of comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon is the only option to free our people from the chains of dictatorship, tribalism, corruption and all forms of injustice and bring about a system of governance that is best in addressing our diversity in South Sudan, a federal system of government. Therefore, it is very important that you the comrades stick together especially in times like this in the history of our nation. SPLM/A under Dr. Riek Machar Teny, will deliver you all the programmes that South Sudanese have been yearning for, for years but always denied by those who think the country belong to them only.
Lastly, but not the least, the office of the Representative would like to thank IGAD, AU, Troika, EU, China, Russia for sponsoring and supporting the parties to the conflict in order to find a lasting political solution to the conflict, in the same manner, SPLM Tanzania Mission call on the bodies to put more pressure on the government to compromise and to negotiate in good faith so that people of South Sudan can have a good peace
Thank you and May God bless us in our struggle.
Mr. Peter Oyoyo Kleto
Deputy and Acting Representative to the United Republic of Tanzania
