July 27, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— South Sudan’s First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, the leader of the armed opposition hopes the region and the international community could prevent a full-scale conflict in his country.

Speaking to Al Jazeera today, Dr. Machar, said he is stationed around the capital, Juba, monitoring the situation unfolding while waiting for a regional force to arrive to act as a buffer zone between his forces and those of his rival, Salva Kiir.

Machar reiterates that he is still the legitimate First Vice President but warns that he will only return to Juba once the capital has been demilitarized.

“First of all I’m still the First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan. The appointment made yesterday by president Salva Kiir is illegal. It has no bases because the peace agreement does not give powers to appoint the First Vice President under current circumstances.” Machar said.

“The appointment of Taban from the perspective of SPLM/SPLA-IO is not acceptable because he has defected and join the faction of President Salva Kiir. He cannot appoint his friend who has defected to him to replace me”  He continued.

Referring to the Agreement of Resolution on Conflict in South Sudan conflict (ARCISS), Machar said that his rival has no power to appoint anyone in his party without following the structure of SPLM/SPLA(IO).

“By the agreement, he has no powers to appoint any person unless I nominate the person. There is a provision which states if the First Vice President is a way in the country, the next senior minister would act. The next senior minister is Alfred Lado, the Minister of Interior, who is inside the country and I have told him when I was forced out to act”. he said

“So for president Salva Kiir to appoint a replacement is wrong” he continued.

He is disappointed that Salva Kiir forces, who forced him out of Juba, are still pursuing war – attacking him and his forces using aircraft, helicopter gunships and ground troops.

Machar said that the war is still ongoing but he will continue to defend himself while  waiting for the international community and the region to deploy a force they promised earlier this month.

“Well, we will wait. We have been waiting. That is why we have not responded to propagation[attacks] by the forces loyal to the president” he said

“It will be the international community that will give us the indication that they have failed to persuade president Salva Kiir. In the mean course we will be defending ourselves under any propagation” he reiterates.

Although Dr. Machar is around Juba and being attacked, he promises that his forces will not disrupt the promises of the international community and the region to intervene.

“As long as the international community and the regional fair-party force is being waited to deploy we will not disrupt that but if they failed then this is an indication that the whole agreement is forsaken by the international community and the regional body that brokered the peace agreement” he continued.

Contrary to Machar’s thinking, Juba hopes that the appointment of Gen. Taban Deng Gai as the First Vice President will bring peace and unity under the leadership of Mr. Salva Kiir.

Instead the government has ordered his forces to use any means in their power to bring Riek Machar, dead or alive, to answer for charges against him.

The renegade retired general, Taban Deng Gai, controls no army but just a few politicians in Juba.

    Dr. Machar foresure is a man of peace and one of the very few leaders the country need to enter real peace. Had it been some other leader, a re-enforcement would have reached to push Kiir out of Juba along with his groups of thugs.

  • Chuolpur

    That is really true as the Dr. Machar said in his interview last yesterday hopefully Dr.Machar still the country’s first Vice president what has been done by Salva and Taban is not logic there is no power for them to do it so.

    • Riek macher can not make what he went but the youth of south Sudan can choice what the like because south Sudan is not be long to macher and weather he like it or not taban is now vice President of south Sudan

  • tut gatluak

    Our forces under the command of Maj General Oyet Nathaniel, Brig General James Oryema , Brig General Okot David will soon command the forces out of UNMISS POC camp 2 and 3 respectively VIVAVA SPLA/IO

  • katittu

    Machar is a man with potential, he knows how much people of south sudan have sufered and it’s only him who can lead them into peace and if Kirr want peace then he need to abide by the demand of Machar on the third forces to arrive to Juba Machar will come also to Juba or risk full scale war which will mark the end to Dinka dominated government without vission but just to waste tax payers money for their private luxerious life abroad.

    • Dr. Chol Yuol

      I really and eagerly advice you bro Katittu that if Dr. Riek has reach you and killed your mumm, then you would have known that Riek is a man of blood shade not man of peace.
      Riek machar can not live without shading blood, he is a devil.
      kindly take care you will fall into his fits otherwise.

  • We are in the Old Testament time. Malong married more than 50 wives. The rule of law is in the hands of one tribe. Non dinkas are not alllowed to express their views, great editors like Alfred Taban is arrested fo expossing the evils of the jenge.

    Of course a new leader is needed right now. Machar loves this country like many others. He must be supported to make the jenge accepted the peace. The can not do this without the law of AN EYE AN EYE. The close of the Yei Juba road and Mundri Juba road is just the begining of our new law of an eye with an eye.

    Akok,
    Who are the youths of South Sudan? Dinka? Or the 64 tribes youth? If your answer is the later, than let election be done in 2018. Dinka can’t dictate who is who in South Sudan. That mentality will bring the country to Somalia style. You people are emboldened because of lack of a determined leader who can let you people know the reason why we fought Jalaba in the first place.

  • Whortti Bor Manza

    Gentlemen,
    Some of you do not know Kiir. This man has a typical Dinka mentality. He doesn’t care even if you are going to kill him. The only solution is for all to unite. There are enough forces in Equatorial, they only need reorganization and equipment .
    We know Dinka will not sustain major battles.
    The posture they are doing is temporarily .

    • Philip tut

      Exactly his mental is only occupied by alcohol, if he true president y he go &seek advice from others countries president, Others dinka r better z bareelghazel in politics

  • OTIM

    DINKAS HAVE ALWAYS REFLECTED WILD BRUTAL BEHAVIOUR.
    UGANDANS WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT ANYANYAS DID 1N 1985 WHEN OBOTE HIRED THEM

  • James Gatdet Tang

    Machar is still legitimate first vice president despite of the allegation made against him. He will appear to be the leader of South Sudan one day. Kiir and his friends will leave by any mean. Kiir will finish Machar’s force.

    • Thete was a father-in-law and a son-in-law in a country. Father-in-law hates his son-in -law so much that he wants him to die for he doesn’t want him to marry his daughter.Father-in-law has called upon her daughter wedding even though he hates his son-in-law.Everything is done.A week later father-in-law has called his son-in-law in his Palace at 4:30Pm to discuss anything that was not reached during wedding to finish.What happen?
      Father-in-law has planned to kill his son-in-law at 4:30Pm in his beautiful Palace.Kiir has killed an agreement which he signed.

  • Dengo

    I wonder whether Machar wants peace to b in the country or he just wanna b the FVP for his own self interests?Cuz i dont c y he got jealous of his fellow Io member.This move isnt permanent.its meant to fill the gap.

  • Peter

    I just hate those animals #dinka’s because they reason like them but even other animals are better than them as their leader salva is potraying current in the country they assume this country belong to them everywhere they are the one when you dont look like them they assume you are foreigner what a shame on you? It happen to me when i was in lake state. I hate them

  • Luak Jek

    Yes Peter Salva Kiir acts like an animal.

  • In my view as nationalizm citizen of the federal Republic of South Sudan my i appeal to the people known as gaatnyaruop) the dinka if you are not aware of machar’s good will to the people of s.sudan this time you will know by force because he has done for you alot instead of the fragment work play around by kuel) kiir but as ppl of south sudan we the nuer nation were actually clean ppl not dirty as you like,therefore you may see dinka outside like a good person but inside he/she is a bad person where can we go with that heart tell us machar has been bless by nuer nation but kiir has not been bless by dinka gogrial
