July 19, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— Latest reports from South Sudan capital, Juba, indicate that the forces of President Salva Kiir have began major offensives on Machar’s SPLA forces outside the capital.

According to Machar’s Press Secretary, James Gatdet Dak, President Kiir’s SPLA faction has violated the Cease fire declaration made by the two leaders on July 11, 2016, last week.

“President Salva Kiir’s forces have violated the cessation of hostilities declared on July 11, 2016. They are on offensive against SPLA-IO.” Gatdet said.

The attack happened a few minutes ago despite president Salva Kiir’s controversial calls for Dr. Riek Machar to return to meet him in the capital.

The First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, believes that the fight which began at the state house on July 8th was designed by Kiir’s side to eliminate him.

Machar and his forces evacuated the capital on July 12 to avoid further confrontation with Kiir’s side after 5 days of constant fighting in the capital

The First Vice President warns that he won’t return to the capital until a buffer zone is established to prevent further fighting between the two forces and until the rest of his troops agreed in the peace agreement are brought to Juba

    I hope SPLA killed that bastard, riak machar. It’s was president Kiir’s fault to have let the cat out of basket in that Juba palace assault by Riek’gaurds on his. Had he killed him, there won’t be any worry by now…Riek Machar must die…

    • Pl/se Chuol u should report the situation which took place (co muor) was escorted by Machar’s body guards. Devil salva cannot let Machar going safely since ur planning is to kill Machar so u should report something that make sense

  • Garak

    Killing machar will not make south sudan better but worse. Be aware of what you wish for. The so called freedom fighters of south sudan are destroying south sudan and if you believe you can survive with rhetoric good luck.

  • Mulla Ibrahim

    ………..”Riek must die”. It’s a genuine issue, he must also test the fruit of death since he deserve death for killing innocent lives all the way from 1991/2013-2016, we are tied of fighting in South Sudan when would you Nuer take rest from war business and start development business, I’m from Ethiopia and I wish if South Sudanese live in peace and harmony in their country…

    • Badman

      please Mr. Ibrahim, I think you are mislead. why demand death of someone when your maybe tomorrow????????

      why can’t you leave peaceful procedures to be organized. if any leader whether Kiir or Ryak, there will be total crisis and you will regret wishing death to someone. see how Libyan wished for the death of Gaddafi, is there total freedom now in Libya.

  • Mulla Ibrahim

    ……….If Riek will not report to his office in a due period, then President Kiir should replaced him and install Hon. Taban, bear in mind that Riek’s absent will not strand peace… #Garak stop preaching hatred among your fellow South Sudanese.

  • To say that dr.riek machar teny dhurgon can die it will take you to weeks a sick in only saying that!

  • Diu

    There is one thing one must know. You can not fight ideaology by weapons. Even if you kill the leaders still one will rise with the same idea. Only negotiations and agreements fight ideaology

  • Lualdit

    Jaang,
    Has gone beyond their mind. Dr. Machar been their Savior. Let them killed him and will see what will happen to South Sudan . If it not for Dr. Riek Machar, the war would have been worse for them evil dinka. The oil field in paloaich would have stopped working. Bare ghazal would have been in fire. Equatorial would have been equip with weapons to fight against the enemies of the state. Let see what will happen.

    S from you too.

  • Tumwesigye Edvine Maria

    Thank you so much for updating the public. I wonder how I can get news too.

  • Let the foolish Dr should hunt down.
    With out that prophete of doom, ss will be in peace.
    R.i.p the blood sucker, cannibalistic DR.

  • Pl/se stop talking of replacement of Machar while in Ethiopia come to s s and see hw we are finishing dinka. Killing of Machar is like catching lion’s young one in the present mother.

  • Don’t spoil name garmidit it is name suppose to be given to someone like Dr.Machar if u ‘re nuer wew u should use ur real name rather than nick name.u use it in order not to be identify becoz u know that u ‘re in the wrong side.

  • Stephen Dak

    A piece of information that I feel I should share with you my dear! First of all make no debate on it, it is not meant to be debated rather giving you a head up for what is coming. Because I am hundred percent sure with what will soon happen in our nation. I won’t tell you what it is but I strongly encourage individually to pray for the coming consequences

  • Jaang u are very fool tribe and of course food lover on the face of the Earth. Riek Machar, would never gets killed like Dr.Garang, by Yuri M7.yet u jaang still kiss his big black Ass.

  • Francisco

    Ugandans also thought they could use GUNS to get more money. The Acholi Started War on their brothers LANGO but no one Benefited apart from getting onto World Record for being a BLIND Group of thieves who do not have leadership Objectives.

    So, let’s wait and see if South Sudan will grow by fighting between DINKA & NUER !
    HITLER OF GERMANY TRIED THE GUN AND DESTROYED GOD’S PEOPLE BUT NEVER SUCCEEDED . HE DIED PAIN FULLY AT LAST.
    THINK OF USING TALKS BEFORE ITS TOO LATE LIKE UN LIBYA !

  • remaining south sudanese will be sold to uganda by guns and holycopters for hunting riek

  • I don’t really know why jaang never have a national political agendas in the history of our Country. Dr Machar, when he fought for the lliberation of Sudan, you call him the communist! When he championed the selfdetermination fo . Southsudan! You call him the separatist. And now when we achieved our long struggle for freedom, you start the one man shows in order to building a Dinka Dynasty.

  • GatNor

    On the contrary, it is highly likely that splm -in Opposition supporters will only endorse a awar ready leader as Machar’s replacement should Jaang succeed in murdering Machar. And that leader would most likely comes from the white Army volunteers’s Camp or from that of General Gadeet’s Camp. Sorry to disappoint you Jaang but you would wish you had not bothered yourself with Machar who is actually not wanting to go to war with you yet.

  • Mr.GatNor , the Dinka are very shallow minded people who think that killing Dr.Machar will stop Nuer from protesting their oppression, they can’t get if even we try to warn them that killing him will lead to the full disintegration of South Sudan because we the Nuer and Shilluk kingdom will ask Arabs to arms us and will take the former Upper State to the North and we will leave you with your Uganda troops and the Arabs will deal with Omer Basher

  • Karab

    IGAD & The International community has failed Dr. Riek Machar. He went to juba because he is a peace lover & they see him when this use less president is using state resource to kill that good man??? Stay firm freedom fighters. Tell Taban Deng to stay true to him self. If salva kiir kills him Riek Mcahar today, He will kill him too next day or he will have to relinquish idea of democratizing south sudan. I hope Taban deng will not go that low at this critical time.

    • Chacha

      Southern Sudanese you should think deeply what are you heading.
      Yes,you have oil! but you are poorest Country/people in the continent.
      My advise to Rick Machar,don’t kill your people for the presidency,let them decide on election.
      Don’t forget that you have many enemies as a counrty,who want your oils,refuse to be used by them in the name of awarding of power.

  • EmmaJ

    Y only two tribes complicating and showing bad image of south Sudan to the? How many tribes do we have in south Sudan,so please my bros and sis, let’s try to embrace peace, those youths who have gone to school should advise third leaders , especially the both tribes struggling for power,, for us equaos, our time will come, though we are quite when to democratically lead the country rather than bloodsheding innocent bloods.

  • Riek Machar is to take his people to the promised land as moses was entitled by god

  • Riek Machar is to take his people to the promised land.God promises never fail

  • South Sudan is a ‘new born’ state. The post-independence problems exceeds the number of the population. There are big problems, small problems and… non-significant problems that may become overnight big problems.

    So, what can be done to heal all wounds and to lower and extinct the results of negative actions? The opinion of many observers and newsmakers is that the situation can explode in a Rwanda-type genocide.

    I believe that the panacea for all problems is ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. South Sudanese people, political fractions, tribes, government, ALL must embrace economic development as the best “medicine” for this social ‘disease’ created by years of struggle for independence.

    The “spectators” of this situation MUST act on that direction if he/she has really good intentions to solve or try to solve or help South Sudan on this matter.

    Economic Development shall become the new slogan for South Sudan.

  • The wear will creat everything. The south sudanese ladies maybe not educated. but mr kihr shouldnt have to bring someone out of his nation. Unless she or he have citizen of southern sudan.
