January 28th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan government said on Sunday that part of the international community which is not for peace smuggled Gen. Thomas Cirilo out of Africa and taken him to the United States of America.

South Sudan’s Minister of Information Makuei Lueth said during a meeting in Juba on Sunday that the international community is divided over the implementation of the peace agreement signed in Addis Abab in September 2018.

“The international community is divided. Within the international community, there are people who are against the peace agreement,” Makuei said at in Juba Sunday.

He said a certain part of the international community smuggled out Gen. Thomas Cirilo from the Sudanese capital Khartoum to the United States.

“Among them are those who smuggled out Thomas Cirilo from Khartoum and was taken to Addis, from Addis to Djibouti and from Djibouti to America,” he said. “There is this group of TROIKA and the European Union; these people are not clear. They are not for peace because they said ‘you first implement this peace agreement’.”

“If you implement it well, then we will support you’. We told them that ‘if we can implement it without you, then we will not need your support again, because it is high time for us now to get your support’,” he added.
