Arusha: Congratulations to SPLM/A-IO Chairman and Commander in Chief comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon for Signing the IGAD-PLUS compromise peace document.
The SPLM/A under the able leadership of His Excellency comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon sign the peace not because it satisfies the movement but because he is committed to ending the suffering and killing of South Sudanese. Furthermore, on August 17th, 2015, the world has witness the courage and commitment of the resistance movement to end the conflict which was imposed on the South Sudanese through political settlement. The anti-peace demonstration organize by the enemies of peace did not materialize in Juba and this shows that our people are for peace and not for war. The office would like to call President Salva Kiir to show leadership and courage by signing the document even before the two weeks time he gave so that our people can have peace.
Lastly but not the least, the office would like to appeal to anti- peace elements within the Juba regime to put South Sudan above their personal interest because South Sudan is bigger than each one of us. The office calls upon President Salva Kiir to stay away from those against peace, and urge him to join hands with the world to ending the suffering of South sudanese people.
Thank you and May peace rain in South Sudan.
