Breaking News: One SPLM/SPLA-IO Detainees Feared Dead In Juba, South Sudan
By Justin S. Kwaje,
April 14, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– The South Sudan notorious tribal security operatives continue to crackdown on citizens in Juba on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The Dinka Centric South Sudan National security Service arrested, by some reports, more than a thousand people they suspected to be supporters of General Alfred Lado Gore, the deputy chairman and CIC of SPLA-IO, who returned to the national capital city, Juba, on Tuesday April 12, 2016.
The Dinka centric government, which signed a peace agreement with the SPLA-IO, last August has been singing lip services when in fact they are still waging a bitter war of revenge rather than implementing the most needed peace agreement.
As witnessed on Tuesday, the security agents denied, blocked and arrested supporters of Gore from receiving him in a hero’s welcome at the airport.
Confirmed this morning to a relative of the detained victims, the arrested media team of SPLM/SPLA-IO have been tortured, beaten and according to the prison guard, who asked for his identity to be concealed, most fo the arrested officials have been mistreated.
According to the prison guard, they are being tortured to stop supporting 1st Lt. General Lado Gore, Riek Machar and SPLM/SPLA-IO. Once released, if they are lucky, they are told to remain silence and never repeat what they did.
Majority of those who were arrested, some collected from their homes, are mostly Equatorians and supporters of SPLM/SPLA-IO Deputy Commander in Chief.
Lado, whose supported are being tortured in jail spoke after his arrival on Tuesday and promised that he will never be afraid but so far no SPLM/SPLA-IO official has managed to get to jail to see the condition of their arrested officials and supporters.
The notorious NSS which has horrendous track records on human rights, look at the people they illegally detained and tortured to be the supporters of SPLA- IO trying to influence others to join their group.
Most of the arrests followed the arrival of Gen. Lado Gore to Juba on Tuesday, 12 April 2016. And most of the arrested are students and women from Equatoria; they included those who attempted to welcome Gen. Gore at the airport, including the media team of the SPLM-IO.
NSS has also carried out house-to-house arrests in Juba and suburbs of Juba on Wednesday and Thursday. Many of those detained are being kept at the National Security Service headquarters at Jebel in Juba, and they are kept in very precarious conditions without water and food according to the guard who spoke to south Sudan Liberty News during lunchtime today on Thursday 14 April 2016.
The gross human right violations and arrests are escalating and worsening by the day as the day for Dr Riek Machar’s return is zeroing in.
The general situation in Juba by Thursday afternoon after lunch time looks like the funeral of a very important person, while the numbers of the arriving of Paul Malong’s militias from Northern Bahr El Ghazal is growing; everyday there are at least three lorries arriving on daily basis and nobody has seen the soldiers exiting Juba as claimed by the government that its soldiers are using Juba as a base of transit.
The Regular Juba soldiers are usually sent out from Juba to the northern states but these days the direction has reversed from northern states to Juba and nobody know what the intentions of accumulating the tribal soldiers in Juba are, but surely not in our national interests.
South Sudan is without doubt about to see the repeat of Rwanda genocide of 1994 in the very eyes of the International community including the UN, Belgium and France just to mention a few.
Today Kiir is building one ethnic army in the national capital Juba in the very eyes of IGAD, JMEC, TROIKA, UN, and African Union. The general situation in Juba today is very precarious as the militias group from one ethnic Dinka continues to flood Juba with an untold amount of heavy weaponries while melting into civilians’ populated areas.
The most worrisome occurrence took place as stated above, on the arrival day of the Deputy Chair of the SPLA/M-IO, Mr. Alfred Ladu gore. 16 of SPLM-IO members, a media team were arrested, beaten, tortured and thrown in Jail.
This are supposedly part of the proposed unity government thus they are government not rebels, but Juba abused them just as ordinary criminals such that one of the 16 member of the SPLM-IO thrown in Jail died of his injuries this morning.
The Dinkas are heard to say they will finish the Nuer then they will deal with remaining tribes.
Malignant Malong vowed to not allow Machar to be President, leave alone acting as one when Kiir is out for any reason.
These are now clearly not a mere threat, they are acting on it while the rest of the nation sings peace, and IGAD-plus is mute. Let South Sudanese liberate themselves once more from oppression.
What will it take for IGAD-Plus who send the SPLA/M-IO to juba to realize, the Dinka centric government of Salva Kiir Mayerdit has placed a noose in the neck of the opposition in a total sieged of the capital Juba?
Dr Machar should not come under this conditions when his advanced team members are being thrown in Jail and killed, what will prevent them to do the same to him with the illusions that this will be a victory for them, but unknown, this very act shall instantly turn South Sudan into Rwanda and Somalia combined.
Let the international community not come to sing nonsense when these build up and human right abuses and genocide preparations are occurring in their very eyes. But again it is Africa and African lives, does it matter?
