August 5, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– South Sudan’s armed opposition, SPLM/SPLA-IO, welcomes the today’s communique of IGAD heads of states and partners in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The summit concludes that for the Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan(ARCISS) to be implemented in letter and spirit, a regional “protection force” must be deployed in South Sudan to protect national installations and civilians in the country.

According to James Gatdet Dak, the press secretary of SPLM/SPLA-IO chairman, the summit ruled the current collision government “illegal, null and void”.

“IGAD Heads of State and Government Summit in Addis Ababa, Friday, August 5, 2016, has declared the “illegal” leadership changes in Juba as null and void.” Gatdet sai.

“In their resolution, Chairman and Commander-in-Chief of the SPLM/SPLA (IO), Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon, remains the legitimate First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan. Whoever sneaked in the office illegally in violation of the August 2015 peace agreement should step down.” Dak said referring to his former Chief Negotiator, Taban Deng Gai.

He believes that all the SPLM-IO ministers, who were “illegally replaced” by Taban Deng Gai and Salva Kiir will be reinstated under their legitimate leader, Dr. Machar.

Dak believes that the regional force that will be deployed will protect the leadership, officials and the citizens of South Sudan.

“A third party force will be deployed in Juba to protect the leadership of the country, their officials and the citizens.” Dak said.

The two parties, President Kiir’s faction led by General Taban Deng Gai, and SPLM/SPLA (IO) under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon, were informed of the decision of the IGAD.

Gatdet was pleased with the outcome of the meeting saying that their demands are met.

“On our part as SPLM/SPLA (IO), this is what we have been saying to undo that illegal process in Juba. President Kiir’s delegation had no choice but to accept the IGAD resolutions too. Soon Chiefs of General Staff of Armed Forces in the region will go to Juba to prepare for troops deployment.” he said.

“The leadership of the SPLM/SPLA (IO) welcomes the resolution of the IGAD Heads of State and Government.” he continued.

  • Taban Deng Gai failed in splm / spla io! And side of government iG . Shameless – lol!

  • Lemi

    I thank God for IGAD or else south sudan would have been a battle field for Kiir, T. Gai against civilians. God will jugde you people.

  • We hope that IGAD and partners will commit to financial and political requirement necessary to implement its resolution on ARCISS.

  • John Kijana

    If all goes as agreed by the IGAD partners, then this is a clear message to Kiir and his Jaang Criminal Enterprise (JCE) that they can’t do this as if South Sudan were some cattle camp where no rules apply. This is victory of reason over idiocy, education over illiteracy, thinkers over drinkers. Dr. Riak must come back and bring sanity, cos Kirr is mentality incapacitated and urgently needs help.

  • Jimmy Katumba Ogwok

    Salva Kirr is very authoritative,think about ur subjects 4 God shall judge u harshly.

  • Taban Deng will burried himself alone with Lol

  • Beek the goat,

    were you informed that you taban gai not allowed to enter the meeting room, he was walking in the corrido like you walking in kiir’s mura. idiots, yesterday you demonstrated in the streets that you do not want any foreign force. today it is forced into your toothles mouth the the foreign force must enter Juba. What do you say now?

  • President kirr has failed us all

  • Bul Bul

    It is the right time now for Taban Deng to realise his mistake and not to declare his defection kiir government

  • Taban, must go back to Arab land.

  • Monyiluak Michael

    “A third party force will be deployed in Juba to protect the leadership of the country, their officials and the citizens. This should not make the ioz to put their eggs in one basket as they are aware of the weaknesses of the international body and the motives of some wrong individuals in the SPLA/M in Juba

  • Let the foreign force come because Mr monkey leader is crying in the bush for help & if Igad fall then all nuer and spla io will go to Khratum for good but by the way Igad force is not a nuer tribal army so no hope for spla io

  • Dr Manong Thot Teny Youk

    It has been a tremendous victor by the people of the South Sudan, to have peace after 2 years straggle against the tribal government of JCE. let;s hope hose kids are not going to put other obstacles on the way of peace as we know they are not for peace, because they only do understands the echos of AK47s as their language, they don’t hear by their ears the look with their eyes, they don’t appreciate what’s good and they feel please with evil acts they love the dead bodies and not the leaving ones they are a curse for country. we have been escorted them to the point where they will die away for ever.
    peace is eminent.
