Jan 01, 2016 (Nyamilepedia) —- The South Sudan People’s Patriotic Front (SSPPF)/Arrow Boys has strongly condemned the latest attacks of civilians in Yambio one day before the New Year’s Eve.

In a press statement posted on his Facebook page, Chairman and Commander-in-Chief of South People’s Patriotic Front (SSPPF)/Arrow Boys Lt Gen Eng. Charles Barnaba Kisanga said attacks against civilians and dstruction of properties in Yambio especially n Masiya within Yambio cannot be condoned.

“The office of chairman of SS People’s Patriotic Front (SSPPF)/Arrow Boys has received the sad news of the attacks in Yambio against civilians and their properties on the night of 30th December 2015 around Masiya area by unknown armed youth and condemns it as barbaric act of violence. In this attack even a pregnant woman was raped and she is currently admitted at Yambio hospital,” alleges the SSPPF/Arrow Boys leader Charles Barnaba Kisanga.

Masiya is an area located about 5 miles away from Yambio centre. Kisanga complains that the defunct Government representing the tribal system in Juba is not capable of proving security of the population. It’s now a norm that thieves are protected while innocent civilians die in the hands of thieves, lawbreakers and their protectors while the Government is doing nothing to protect the civilians.

“However our intelligence says the gunmen involved are thought to come from defunct, so called South Sudan Liberation movement which claimed to sign peace agreement with Government and which was coached by Maj Gen Patrick Zamoi. However after the collapse of the agreement the armed group have been on rampage since then,” Kisanga has explained.

Lt Gen Eng. Charles Barnaba Kisanga has taken a strong stance on the security concerns in WES to bring the insecurity under control by disarming all illegal armed groups in the area that become a threat to civilians.

“Hence from today I have ordered the really SSPPF/Arrow Boys forces to be the only legitimate armed group besides the Government forces in WES. Any other group roaming and harming civilians must be disarmed by the forces under me. We already started with that. The armed youth who attacked and looted Solidarity has been apprehended by our forces.”


“The good news is we already disarmed the gang yesterday and 14 AK-47 guns seized from them. One car and most of the items of the nuns have been recovered including an IPAD. Today I ordered that all these items and car be taken to Solidarity or the Catholic Church premises as soon a way of communicating with the Church is established.”

Patrick Zamoi, the General in control of the forces of the Arrow Boys didn’t act aggressively to arrest the situation and protect the civilians, Kisanga will step in to do the job that Zamoi faled to do.

“Now because Patrick Zamoi cannot provide protection to the people of Yambio from the roaming gangsters he helped in keeping alive, I have ordered our forces to move to Yambio town this evening and guarantee smooth new years running. People should not be scared of our forces coming from Saura to Yambio this evening. The forces under my commanded are to confront the armed youth not under our control and disarm them unless they agreed to come under the organized military forces of SSPPF/Arrow Boys,” he continued.

If the Government doesn’t observe the cessation of hostilities, the Arrow Boys movement will step in, not only in self-defense but also to clean up the gangs that harm innocent civilians on daily basis in the area.

“As such I am ordering the protection of our civilians by our forces and I call on SPLA to keep away from our troops since we are observing ceasefire and only dealing with armed gangs whom the WES Government cannot control.”

I believe the arrows boys are strongest than government soldiers therefore the killing have been minimised, but you guys need to keep fighting like that until the end of kiir and jieng council because the elder of jieng council destroyed the good reputation of Dinka tribe in general for the wrong advise they give to kiir.

AMEN January 1, 2016 at 9:42 pm

Hahaha…………. Log, the thieves cannot protect the people they want to loot properties of civilian instead of protecting, the so call Arrow boys are full of thieves and crazy people they cannot manage to fight the government, please tell them to back home and start diging yams.

You are imbecilic if you called arrow boys thieves while the entire kiir government base on embezzlement work from the beginning to the end. That is how the thieve talk because he will not recognise stealing people property. Arrows boys never steal any things from country for their own benefit ,but they strive to protect themselves from influxes of jieng to their land because when Dinka ran away from nuer they went to arrows boys land and their cattle obliterated all the arrows boys crops and force arrow boys girls to be married by stupid jieng while your government is corrupted and serve only interest of jieng. Nothing will repair the image of this government because its image are worse around the world so do not semblance that your community is good and you try to sell cheap propaganda by cited arrows boys are thieves while your community is the one who steals the country resources to make themselves fluent.

I don’t believe what’s taking place in Yambio ’cause where have the so-called ‘thieves’ get the 47K rifles and why particularly target the Solidarity and the Catholic church? The church has special concern about the innocent civilians that’s why the church continues to preach peace, love and reconciliation. The Solidarity sisters care for education that’s why their program is to train teachers to effect quality education to the children of South Sudan in general. Why then attack and humiliate them? Nobody has claimed assault on Solidarity and the Catholic Church is this not cowardice? We are to pray for the Solidarity sisters and God will take care of those merciless gang. Curse be on them from the Almighty Father in Heaven, Amen

Haahahahaha poor amen the cow,

please note this, another 78 strong SPLA/M-IO arrived Juba yesterday evening. Good that you notice that civilian’s properties are looted in Yambio. The logic is this, Arrow Boys can not loot their own things. Every body knows which tribe is the looting one in this country. Always the jenge abu arian/abu nyalama/abu bagar is the sydrom of this country.

This country will never be the same. No more going back. we must implement the reforms needed as soon as possible. I see your two brothers tolia and beek are already crying that dinka are hated so much. I told them it is not yet over until it is over. I forget to tell this but I believe you read it in the NEWS. One of your brothers has killed a Ugandan artist in Kampala and one or your dinka house was burnt to asses.

last year the son of kiir was arrested by police in Nairobo when the mother CAUGHT HIM RAPPING HIS OWN SISTER. What unhuman behavious? So please do not mess with the affairs of this country.
