Jan 31, 2015(Nymailpedia) — The 29th Extraordinary Assembly of the IGAD Heads of States and Government scheduled Thursday January 29th adjourned to Saturday afternoon January 31st ostensibly to allow the parties to the South Sudan conflict time to agree to a proposal agreement text, which reads as follow:

  1. The incumbent will be the president of the Transitional Government of National Unity, and that this is a non-violating principle;
  2. The structure of Transitional Government of National Unity:
    1. President (incumbent)
    2. First Vice president.
    3. Vice President (who must hail from Equatoria – the incumbent Vice President]
    1. The President shall be succeeded by a person from his party.
    2. The First Vice President shall be succeeded by a person from his party.
  3. The National Legislative Assembly shall be made up of 400 members as follow: 332 the incumbent members and 68 new members appointed according to the power sharing reasons [41:20:7]; the speaker of the NLA shall also hail from Equatoria.
  4. The duties of the president and the First Vice President shall be worked out and the decision making mechanism within the TGONU shall be eighty percent.
  5. Power sharing ratios:
    1. GRSS 60%
    2. SPM/SPLA 30%
    3. Other Political Parties and Former Political detainees. 10%
  1. Failure to reach an agreement by Saturday afternoon along the dictated IGAD principles shall take firm action before any other body. In declaring this imposed agreement the Chairman of IGAD cautioned that they had a consensus and would not receive any comments.

In view of the above points, the SPLM/SPLA makes the following observation:

  1. This “take it or leave it” approach undermines the essence of peacefully negotiation settlement;
  2. This imposed agreement by the IGAD heads of States and Governments will not bring peace to South Sudan.
  3. The IGAD Heads of State and Government, by creating a parallel lines of succession in the TNGU have killed the Arusha SPLM/SPA reunification agreement on August 1st, 2015.
  4. We call upon the African Union to immediately make public the report of the AU Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan.
  5. The SPLM/SPLA remains committed to peaceful resolution of the South Sudan conflict.

It is no wonder that the final nail will be hammered on the peace coffin by the very so-called AU who has wasted millions of donors money for the last one year. Anyway IGAD never succeeded to mediate any conflict in Africa. Every conflict they pop their nose in they end up taking sides. Most of these conflicts are still raging on in Africa and millions of people are still dying. It is now incumbent on the UN Security Council to take over the issue of South Sudan. President Kiir’s oil dollars have worked well!

What solutions will come from the UN? Peace will only come the day Dinka and Nuer elders, politicians and the youths decide enough is enough. As for now, the gods of death that feeds of human blood in Dinka and Nuer heartlands are yet to quench their thirst. Talks about how to share what positions is all about nonsense. Make peace today and save ur people from death, destruction and life in exile.

This is what we predicted since,unqualified Dr can’t made insurgents even treatment of malaria can be difficult to him . IGAD cannot solve South Sudan problem with any due course,hunger cannot leaves food near him unless it should be a miracle from that hunger person, equal level can’t teaches themselves I means not qualification,but the Ebola environment that exists in most Africa Countries blinds the African leaders eyes,no peace in an East Africa IGAD, and there will be no,peace in AU.

All IGAD country leaders are extension-members of The Illuminati. And nothing good can come out of IGAD, because of the evil-side money/mankind relationship can sometimes take. Until the South Sudanese Population (Civil Society Politicians & leaders, & Masses) can understand exactly how we are interconnected to this new-world order bulls–t’, things will be very very hard for us in South Sudan in the near Future. Everyday I see The New African Illuminati people taking our jobs & new UN/NGO jobs while there is war in the country. So the clever Illuminati members loot their foolish unsuspecting illuminati members in daylight in the name of humanitarianism!

watch this vedio and you’ll see all MOST of IGAD country members are Illuminati Members – a real ominous symbol to unsuspecting S.Sudan GRSS Politicians:

So the World Foxes are fixing their national unemployment problems by prolonging wars in unsuspecting innocent nation members, like S.Sudan, and reaping big Cashflow like the the Big Oslo Donation of last year!

The Nuer are prime victims of this Illuminati, because the Dinka have all joined this Illuminati Regime, under Kir,M7 and Co.!

All this peace processes are in vein, we keep loosing A lot of funds/money in the names of facilitating officials to participate in the process of bringing in peace to NO avail, all the leaders we entrusted with our votes are NOT ready for any peace including the SO CALLED IGAAD, the poor and innocent south Sudanese children will continue dying and getting displaced till GOD INTERVENES, WE poor southerners have to look up to God now, Because NOT KIIR , RIAK OR IGAAD CAN BRING US ANY PEACE APART FROM FINISHING THIS COUNTRY’S MONEY.
