Monyomaji group demands apology over Torit insecurity report

June 6, 2021 — A group that identifies itself as Monyomaji in Torit of Eastern Equatoria state has dismissed what they called “a misrepresentation of facts” by the South Sudan Red Cross Secretary General John Labor with intention to tarnish their reputation and as such demands that SSRCS must issue a public apology for misleading the public.

This comes as result of the press release that was issued on Wednesday by John Labor, the Secretary General of South Sudan Red Cross, accusing an armed youth group revealed as Monyomaji of closing SSRCS Branch Office in Torit.

According to reliable information extended to Nyamilepedia, the Monyomaji made it clear that they are not aware of any group of armed youth in the area, admitting that the SSRC Branch office in Torit was shutdown because the SSRC staffs ignored and declined to reach consensus with Monyomaji on the concerns which they are very sure all NGOs, UN agencies including Mr. John Labor’s SSRC is aware of,

The group wants to assure the public that no property has been looted as allegedly reported by the SSRCS.

The Monyomaji group asked for an apology from Mr. John Labor for tarnishing their reputation in what they construed as unfounded and “white lies” that are intended for defamation.

Meanwhile they are urging SSRC also to relocate one of their drivers as soon as possible for falsely accusing them with crime which they say have not been committed.

” We strongly urge Mr. John Labor to stop and apologize for the gross misrepresentation of facts with insidious intentions to harm the name, image and reputation of the Monyomaji, we also urge John Labor and current SSRC administration in Torit town to immediately relocate one of their drivers for having falsely accused the Monyomaji of “mobilizing to attack” the heavily armed occupants “Safari Link Hated” here in Torit”, Monyomaji said in the statement.

Monyomaji also welcome the initiative for a dialogue with SSRC, however, they want true and reliable dialogue that shall be followed and sanctioned by full and unconditional cooperation of the SSRC administration both in Juba and Torit and should be on their express concerns.

“After all, we recognize and have absolutely no problem with the contribution and services of most NGOs and UN agencies to the people of South Sudan” concluded Monyomaji in their press release.
