Dec 2, 2017(Nyamilepedia) —– We, the people of Rubkotna County of Lich State, Political and military leaders, intellectuals, Elders, Chiefs, Women, youth and students of SPLM/A–IO have met in our respective locations between 24th – 27th November 2017, and discussed the defection of Gen. Ruai Kuol Jal, Former Military Governor of Lich State and his group declared on 23rd November 2017 in Khartoum (Sudan) of having formed a new Movement called National People’s Alliance Movement (NPAM) with its Military wing known as National People’s Alliance Forces (NPAF).
In our careful deliberation of the subject matter with logical reasoning and critical analysis in regard to the future of our community in particular and that of the people of South Sudan in general, we found that:
- This New Movement will not be able to address the root causes of the conflict and will never bring peace and stability for the entire people of South Sudan at all.
- The so called NPAM is a camouflaging and destructive hand of the regime in Juba and its collaborating agents whose dual aims is to snatch the people of Rubkotna County out of SPLM/A –IO or divide the Rubkotna Community in particular and Lich State in general in order to weaken the people Movement under the able leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon.
- NPAM is a fatal device to undermine the objectives of people’s Popular Movement and to prolong the suffering of our civil population particularly in Rubkotna County and Lich State and in South Sudan in general as well.
- SPLM/A-IO is the only option to rescue and alleviate the suffering of the people of South Sudan in general and any deviation of this kind shall be seriously confronted without hesitation.
In light of the above, we the undersigned Rubkotna Community (Leek Community) political and military leaders, elders, civil society and Community members do hereby condemn and denounce in the strongest terms possible the defection of Gen. Ruai Kuol Jal, the Former Governor of Lich State and his group at this particular moment whereas the whole world is orchestrating the revitalization of peace process in South Sudan.
We therefore, call upon all our community members here at home and in Diaspora to distant themselves from the so called NPAM/NPAF whose alliances and Motives are questionable.
It is our strong believe that SPLM/A-IO under the Chairman and C- in-C Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon has an authentic popular political objectives and principles of establishing a true Federal Democratic system of Governance in South Sudan as enshrined in the four basic documents (i. e the constitution, the Manifesto, the Internal Regulations and the Business Code of Conduct) as endorsed in SPLM-IO national convention, Pagak 2015.
In conclusion, we, the Leek people would want to assure all our comrades in struggle not to lend an ear to the Ruai-Exit allegations (Ruai’s defection). Our stand shall always be firmed and unshakable towards defending the SPLM/A-IO objectives and principles under the able leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny -Dhurgon.
Viva Rubkotna County !!
Viva South Sudan !!
Viva Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon !!
Viva SPLM-IO !!
The struggle continues !!
