Naath/Nuer Community (Bentiu, Phow, Bieh, Latjor/Jikany ) in Nairobi Kenya issue this Press Statement on disowning and condemning the move made by two Generals Peter Gatdet Yak Majiek and Gathoth Gatkuoth Hothnyang.
August 12, 2015 (Nyamilepedia)—Naath/Nuer Community in Kenya in any strongest term possible condemned and disowned the recent move and allegation pointed on the leadership of SPLM/A-IO by our fellow Generals to form their own movement apart from the Movement led by Dr.Riek Machar Teny.
We as Naath/Nuer Community in Kenya will never entertain any move to cause a division in our movement and as well as our community, so we stand tall and dedicated our full support to the movement of the people for the people and by the people and the objectives of the movement under the leadership of Dr.Riek Machar Teny. We also call upon Naath/Nuer Community as well as all south Sudanese worldwide for not granting this group any room neither support at all and we urge all of you to stand together under the umbrella (SPLM/A-IO) and the leadership of C-in-C Dr.Riek Machar Teny.
We acknowledge the vital role and the responsibility taken by Kenyan Government and its people under the leadership of H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta by not granting the confused group a right to Kenyan media’s and all the privileges to announce themselves in Kenyan soil. Because if that happened it would possess strong challenges, confusions and setback to the IGAD-Plus led peace process in the Ethiopian Capital Addis Ababa. In addition, would fuel the long suffering of South Sudanese living in dire situation wherever they are, so that show to Naath/Nuer Community and all South Sudanese that Kenya in our strong brother and peace loving country in East Africa, and because our people are suffering we need peace to prevail in our country and let the freedom reign in the South Sudan.
We acknowledge the move taken by Kenyan Government in supporting South Sudanese living in its land and as well the strong support they give to the movement of all South Sudanese to stand for their and freedom under the leadership of C-in-C Dr.Riek Machar Teny and the long time support on our struggle for independent under the leadership of Sudan and now led to the independence of South Sudan which was born under the comprehensive peace agreement (CPA) signed in Naivasha, Kenya, so thanks you so much and GOD bless Uhuru Kenyatta and GOD bless Kenya.
We acknowledge the strong leadership of SPLM/A-IO and their role to transform the country and applying spirit of nationalism, Democracy and vesting their full support to the IGAD-led peace process to end the long suffering of the people of the Republic of south Sudan. We committed ourselves and put our full and strong support to the leadership of Dr.Riek Machar Teny and the IGAD-led peace process to end the war. We urge White-Army, other forces, Naath/Nuer community, and others 63 tribes of South Sudan to fully support the leadership of SPLM/A-IO for it is the only best alternative Body to restore peace, security, create strong and prosperous Nation of Federal Republic of South Sudan in the region and Africa as well.
