August 18, 2016(Nyamilepedia) ——- South Sudan’s armed opposition leader, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, the Chairman and C-in-C of SPLM/A-IO is seeking medical support after 40 days of being pursued by his arch rival forces in Equatorian region.

Although Machar’s whereabouts remains a riddle, officials like Mabior Garang de Mabiror, who have direct contacts with him, assure that Machar is alright but needs time to recuperate from deadly battles that forced him out of the country.

“We have been in communication with him for the last two days from when he crossed the border out of South Sudan. He is in a secure country. Because of diplomatic procedures, the friendly country which is helping us in his evacuation. It is still a sensitive time. So we don’t want to reveal exactly the country but he will traveling to one of the IGAD countries soon and he will hold a press conference” Mabior said

“His condition is very exhausted. As you can imagine after his house was attacked by forces loyal to individual generals in the government. He withdrew from Juba, he has been constantly on the run from this time until his forces were able to cross him across the border and he is now evacuated ” he said.

Machar did not want to leave the country fearing that his forces would lose a central command and therefore he had to do the heavy lifting before he leaves the frontline.

Mabior further reiterates that Machar had other responsibilities on his shoulders as the communities around his hiding areas also look upto to him.

“He is a people’s leader, and so he was among the civil population. The civil population protected him, not only his soldiers.  Being from a different area of south Sudan, you are not from the same community as theirs, it is very easy for that community to give you up. So he was also doing political work among the civil population to try and normalize the situation” Said Mabior Garang de Mabior.

“He has been on the run and so the situation takes its toll and he is now seeking medical attention and then also to do some diplomatic work”. Mabior continued.

He went on to explain that Machar is now needed to steer the wheel for the SPLM/SPLA-IO and reverse what President Salva Kiir and his ally, Taban Deng Gai, are currently doing in Juba.

Mabior said what exists in Juba today is not a Transitional Government of National Unity but a faction of President Salva Kiir trying to run the country on its own.

Many SPLM/A-IO politicians have been displaced into UN camps or other hiding places in and outside the capital.

Mabior repeats that a handful politicians, who are led by Taban Deng Gai in Juba, do not represent the armed opposition.

In other reports, sources from the United Nations in New York revealed that the UN participated in airlifting Dr. Machar at the request of the DR Congo authorities after his troops helped him crossed the border into DRC.

It is yet to be determined whether Machar is seeking medical attention in Kinshasa or in any other neighboring state’s capital.

The authority in DRC has denied any knowledge of Machar’s presence in the country.

It will be good when FGOIP (fake goverment of incompetent people), gets replaced.
Is funny to see how taban lueth ateny try to repeat to themsrlves how wonderful everything is in the country. Sadly only the three of them (and their paid kenyan Weston Wahjoi) believes them (weston w believes everything the paid mastets in juba tell him.)
Hope chairman recovers soon.

Amazing story of survival Machar cheated death right in front of those thugs in Juba. Its clear that God has better intentions for the man. Many thanks to the people of Equatoria and the teams of Machar’s guards who have sacrificed greatly through this ordeal and turn it into a success story. Machar’s haters need not be in haste to see Machar leave this planet. Instead of falling victim to Macharaphobia accept that liberation and reforms must continue to change the country from it current state of chaos to law and orders, peace and stability. In other words Machar is not after you as an individual, not after your pocket or bank account, and definitely not out to kill you because of whatever sh*tty or greater of a tribe you might be from.

We will win, Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhuorgon, is sound in a good health.
The Lord God is with him always to protect and detect any fishy-aggression against him. Please, be patient all.
His Excellency is taking a bit of rest in one of our friendly & generously “African Samaritan country.”
Alas, I wondered why everyone wanted to know whereabouts C-in-C ?!!!!!
Although everyone knew that the legitimate FVP Dr.Teny-Dhuorgon, tactically withdrew from his residential home in Juba-Jebel under duress and heavy-handed of sophisticated helicopters-gunships, two serosero tanks and mathiang-anyonor tribal-militiamen of JCE.
The whole world knew that via media.
So, FVP did tactically withdrew in self-defence with his “ranks-and-files”. Definitely, the old soldier will not fades away easily.
The art of war is all about eliminations of one party by another party, in order to implement his party policies.
As we all around the world witnessed the taban-kiir’s despicable conspiracy to assassinated Dr. Machar in J-1.
Therefore, “camouflage and concealment” is vital for FVP, it necessary needed to protected himself from kiir-taban’s Evil-EYES ?. Dirty networks & homework’s of JCEvildoers in Juba & the world at large.
God saves your ambassador, peace-marker Dr. Riak and his nations.
God save RoSS.

Riek Machar took technology wronglywhen he was Hacking Hacking government,while he was in the same government. Now he is a technophobe,but he is still using them as i see.

GatNor August 19, 2016 at 2:40 pm

haha I just love it.

some Jaang are going ape-sh*t upon hearing that Dr. Machar has survived. I mean they are literally losing their Sh*t with anger and disappointment. I played a trick on one of them a while ago that Machar has exited this planet and the reaction I got was priceless. After confessing I was drawing some reaction I was quickly block, unfriended, from all of communications. Today I found this…

Dear UNMISS(GOD), IGAD-GOD and AU/African GOD:
Don’t bring back Riek Machar to Juba AGAIN: Keep him in exile

From: Manyang David Mayar — https://paanluelwel.com/2016/08/19/dear-unmiss-igad-and-au-dont-bring-back-riek-machar-to-juba-again/

How Pathetic is that. These are some of the same tribal writers making noise that they don’t want UN in South Sudan again writing to the same UN(their god of convenient) hoping to keep Machar out of South Sudan –you got to be kidding!

The minerals they use to make computers,Mobiles,Ipad and Iphone are from Congo. Those thought that Technology is not a part of them. Tantalite and Tungsten are also in South Sudan,but you need peace. They are very stupid when they sit like that.

Beek August 20, 2016 at 8:20 am

New Technology is 16 years old,it was then home Phone,work Telephones or Cellphones on the streets back in 1990’s.
New Technology is very easy and good,but not to be use them to attack innocent people.

Beek August 20, 2016 at 8:35 am

They have no right to attack uneducated people and they have no right intended like they are God. John Garang had done that and now that stupid Pot-belly who only care of himself.
