June 26th, 2019(Nyamilepedia) —On Wednesday, the South Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO) said it had learned with deep sadness the brutal killing of two unarmed civilians by Government’s SSPDF forces in Mugwo, and called on the CTSAMM and other peace monitoring bodies to investigate the incident and oversee compliance with the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement in hotspot zones.  

“The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army in Opposition SPLM (IO) leadership in Yei River State is saddened to learn the brutal killing of two unarmed youth by SSPDF at Mugwo Payam.” Said Goodwill. 

In a press statement extended to the Nyamilepedia on Wednesday, the Spokesperson for the Governor of Yei River State, Wayi Godwill narrated that, the two civilians were arrested on June 14th while heading to Ginjani Market. They were arbitrarily imprisoned behind bars, brutally murdered and their bodies dumped six miles away from Yei River State. 

“The two deceased were kidnapped on June 14th 2019 while on their way from Wundukori to Ginjani Market at Mugwo Payam in Yei River County. They were then taken to Yei town where they were arbitrarily detained at Amia Barracks. They were later summarily executed and their bodies were found dumped at 6 Miles (Tikasu) along Yei-Kaya road on June 22nd 2019.” he explained. 

The SPLM (IO) leadership in the State urged the Government to respect the provisions of the Revitalized Agreement and called upon the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) to probe into this latest violation and ensure that, the ringleaders of these atrocities are held accountable. 

“The leadership sends its deepest condolences and sympathies to the bereaved families and the entire people of Mugwo Payam.

While the leadership urges the incumbent government as one of the signatories  to the R-ARCSS to respect its provisions and put a stop to atrocities against civilians, it equally calls upon CTSAMM and UNMISS to investigate this fresh violation of the R-ARCSS and ensure that the perpetrators are held accountable.” he added. 

The South Sudanese Parties signed an agreement in September last year to end a five-year civil war, characterized by grave human rights abuses committed against unarmed civilians

    Foolish Equatorians they will be finished by the jenge government in juba; until they realized that they are ruled by primitive savages, they won’t learn any lesson about the Jenge tribe!

    If there is peace why the killing is going on,& on in Yei State???? Where is the Governor of Yei State ??? UN report they said that its is lies,this lie now ??? If you found people carrying gun you killed,but innocent civilians. They kidnapped people in Yei and ordered the relatives to pay money so that your person to be released,if no money your person be killed and dumped any where.
    Igad,AU put the blame to oi,the killing is from Government side people witnessed a lot,that happened to my inlaw in Yei,they kidnapped him and many others and took them to Amia and demanded money, I sent $ 300 USD and was paid to them and they realised him,The others who never paid something was killed.
    No reconciliation to the Government why because people now many reconciled and some thing new came out,what that mean to people??? That means that I will teach you a lesson,if so why people reconcile??? We need Justice and accountability for those who did .
    They will be put in front of people and be killed so that the others will see what happening to their colleagues ! They will give up of killing of innocents civilians.EYETO EYE, TOOTH TO TOOTH.
    We blame Governor and Commissioners of Yei River State.
