August 15, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) –  The office of the SPLM/A Deputy and Acting Representative to the United Republic of Tanzania after critical analysis of the current decision by the government to pull out of the talks and the manipulated Kampala text to favor Salva Kiir would like to inform the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania, IGAD, the AU, UN, Troika, EU, China, Russia and the entire world that the government of Salva Kiir is not serious about bringing peace to our people.
The compromise peace document prepared by IGAD-Plus has been violated by the IGAD without consultation of other nations that have join the talks in the Kampala meeting. In the first place, Uganda should not be included in the mediation because it cannot mediate, fight and negotiate at the same time. Instead the world should be mediating peace between Uganda and SPLM in opposition under the visionary and democratic leadership of comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon because Uganda has and still continues to cause untold suffering to our people by supporting the dictatorial regime in Juba to finish its own citizens for the interest of Uganda.

Secondly, the government reason for pulling out is not logical and any reasonable person would not agree with it. In every government or movement, people come and leave and others remain as an individual choice, but the movement stays because it has a vision, goals, and objectives for the country. The defection of the two Generals should not be the cause for alarm, and it is not the business of Juba government. When General Olony Johnson defected from government, comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon did not pull his peace delegation because of split within the government, even the grand CPA, when it was negotiated, there were so many factions against SPLM/A under the late Dr. John Garang, the Equatoria Defense forces under Dr. Theophillus Ochang, the General Peter Gadet group, the Paulino Matip group, the Toposa group, the Mundari group and you name them, but Bashir as President of the country did not pull out and tell Garang to first sort out with those factions it is because it is not his business and he was serious about returning peace to the country.

What the Juba government is doing is non-starter and the world should take this matter seriously because Kampala and Juba have become obstacle to peace in South Sudan. When the conflict broke out in 2013, more than 70 percent of army defected to the opposition, but no one says Salva has been overthrown. I want to assure the world that comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon is a people’s leader and will never be overthrown by non-nationalists and opportunists who wants to take the country backward. Instead the movement is getting more stronger each an every day because people know what they are fighting for and cannot be deceive by cheap propaganda by visionless individuals. The office appeal to the international community to put more pressure on government of Salva Kiir and Uganda respectively to stick to the compromise agreement. The Juba regime is not only a danger to the national security, but a threat to regional, continental and global security.

Thank you and May God bless South Sudan

    THE ONLY PERSON WHO WAS INTERESTED IN PEACE WAS RIEK MACHAR FROM THE START OF THE CONFLICT & THE MAN CAN NOT DO ANY THING MORE THAN THIS I BELIEVE. THE JUBA GROUP & MUSEVENI ARE DOING EVERYTHING TO BLOCK PEACE. THE WORLD SHOULD SANCTION THEM. I SALUTE YOU RIEK MACHAR FOR YOUR INTEGRITY.

  • There are many challenges in any rebellion, those two gens. who defected are known to the world that they don’t want peace but war. If i were dr. Riak Machar, i could bring them back after August 17th deadline and send them to fight Uganda this time. I can send Gen. Gatdet to Fight Kampalla, Gen. Gathoth to fight Warraf, Gen. Johnson Olony to Capture Oil Field and Gen.Gatwech dual to fight Bor – Juba. I hope this people (Kiir and Messeveni) could call for quick peace which give dr. Riak upper hand as they did in January 2014.

    South Sudanese should now better understand that, their country is being governed not only by Kirr, but Museveni as well. It’s Kirr and Museveni who do not want to see peace in south sudan. It’s now the people of the south Sudanese to see into it that if no peace is signed by Aug 17th, all south Sudanese from every coner of the country must rise and fight this regime. Let ‘s not only leave to one particular group of South Sudanese. Let’s learn from what happened during Arab Spring in North Africa not long ago.

    Obama is kept at bay about the involvement of Uganda in the fight in S. Sudan by the IGAD leaders who do not want to let USA know about their role in South sudan. IGAD have shown to South Sudanese very clearly that they are not capable to bring peace that people yarn for, without the participation of Museveni, who is Museveni anyway. When we fought the Arabs where was Museveni. Leave us alone Museveni. Earlier SPLA/10 notified IGAD and AU about Uganda’s involement in the war and that Museveni should not participate in any peace negociations, but IGAD continue to ignor. South Sudanese should bring war to Uganda’s door step so we see if Kirr will help Museveni. After Kirr and his people are gone, the relationship between these two countries will never be same.

    • Warrap

      So do you think that other people will rule South Sudan rather then Dink of the same Kiir , sorry for your stupid mentality, we born to rule no way for stupid Nuer people, if we are still alive.

      • Warrap or Arab, You have put shame on south sudanese people by your primitive son to hand over our country to be rule by the most ugliest,stupidist people on the planet. And now you insist to be the right state to have another leader come to take power again. You wish to have another chance it won’t happen. Both criminals are on to be kicked out soon. You created this disasseter, but greater bahr el gazal ‘ll suffer for long to come belief this as does juses.

        • Warrap

          Look we never been in a cooperation with Arab like your Nuer people use to do always, but my advice to all of Nuer people is better to divide themselves to two group’s does whose like Arab let them go to Arab side and does who like Ethiopia let them go to Ethiopia, because this country only for the majority nor for the minority. The plan B is to chase the remaining Nuer out of south Sudan by any means of they’re leaders failed to sign this pace’s.

        • Warrap means grains or Cereal Crops.

  • You nuer my brother’s Don’t thing there w’ll be a peace in these way, our peace we the people of south sudan have to do it,we Don’t want somebody from out side to came and fixes for us no. in 1987 we make a peace with the any any two, Gordon koang chol, in 2002 we make a peace with riek Machar, if somebody came from out side is not a peace, we are the people’s of south sudan have to do it.

  • It is really UN knowledgeable to say that you do not think so,because if Uganda is an outside fighting to help women or boys who still baby to be napes all the time and there will be a time when mum get tired and leave you with that mess for while because it is not all the time to be right there. Nuer will get you ,you are playing natural sources lazy koala.

  • don’t the SPLM IO really know peace? if so, when did they know peace? before 12\15\2013 there was peace in south Sudan, until 12\15\2013 and then you bring chaos, suffering and death to our country,and your are saying the government don’t want to bring peace to our people. you be ashamed of yourself and God will forgive you that evil deed you’re already done.
