April 19, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- The return of the SPLM/SPLA-IO leader and South Sudan First Vice President designate Dr. Riek Machar to Juba has delayed because South Sudan National Security and Ministry of Foreign Affairs have up to now not issued Permit for Machar to land, SPLM/SPLA in Opposition chairperson of national committee for external affairs Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth has disclosed.

While the Government of Ethiopia has completed its part by clearing Machar, the public believes that Juba is glued to delaying tactics of painting a different picture of Machar by not issuing him landing Permit. However, Ezekiel asserted that SPLM/A-IO chief negotiator and advance team leader Gen. Taban Deng Gai is in consultation with South Sudan National Security and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clear SPLM/A-IO boss. Ezekiel Gatkuoth assured the public that there is still hope that the First Vice President will be arriving tomorrow April 20, 2016 only if all goes well.

“The Landing permit for Juba is not yet secured as of now. It is now 2:45 PM April 19, 2016 and we are working hard to secure this in Juba. General Taban Deng Gai is trying his level best to secure this permit now from National Security and Foreign Affairs of South Sudan. If the permit is secured the airplane can leave from Khartoum, Sudan to Gambella which takes 1 hours and 30 minutes flight,” Ezekiel Gatkuoth stated.

“Since yesterday April 18 until today April 19, 2016 the coordination to airlift the Chief of General Staff of the SPLA (IO) 1st Lt. General Simon Gatwech Dual and the Guards of the First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan H.E Dr Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon has been very difficult,” continued Ezekiel.

Machar’s plane was expected to touch down Juba international airport on April 18, 2016 as scheduled but it didn’t. Many positive statements asserting Machar’s arrival to Juba have been issued both by SPLA-IG and SPLA-IO but never materialized.

    We all wishing you the best to enjoy safe travels to our national capital Juba,South Sudan. I believe by God’s grace the blood of innocent Nuer had been continue spilled is enough.We don’t have to predict the worse to occur again to anyone Of us.God will finally issue the verdict by chuckling the enemies of peace entirely to hades.But let’s me inserted to add, you have be vigilant in spite of words from anyone else. Geghis Khan of Ottoman Turkish once” he was troubled to sleep after he killed one person but he felt much better after he massacre 40 individuals from their enemies” It should be similar to president Kiir, Who wish to exterminate his enemies day and night particularly Nuer for issues of money and power. Kiir is kind of snubbed for the return of Dr.Riek and he is just sarcastic leader who hired unknown gunmen in the country.

  • No matter what you want to appease the Dinka tribal government of South Sudan, peace will never be achieved because your are rewarding the killers with everything and they believe your are surrendering yourselves to them. The only way to achieve peace in South Sudan is first defeat the coward Dinkas militarily and burn their homeland to ground and after that they will know that South Sudan belong to all tribes living in it and not animals like them who are so fucking arrogant with nothing in their brain if even they have learnt some sort of education but have backward thinking of Born To Rule primitive thinking. The USA has built it empire from citizens all over the world , why you stupid Dinka people don’t like the same people like you in all aspects of life’s and cultures and Dinkas and Nuers are long time ago were once brothers and majority of Nuers have Dinkas ancestors?

    General Gatwech Dual must go to Juba with all his troop plus their armaments before Dr. Riek’s departure to Juba.
    If the Kleptocracy regime in Juba do not wants this happened, then, to hell with the traitorous Killer Nyankiir, Jenges Council of Evils, and the Jenges’ warlord, Malong Awan.
