Jan 05, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- The South Sudan Armed Forces/ South Sudan Democratic Party would like to dismiss the allegations that we are connected to General Peter Gadet Yak or Gabriel Changson group.

We want to inform our supporters and all South Sudanese that we are an independent movement formed to liberate the entire country from tribalism, and dictatorship planted by Salva Kiir government. We are in no way connected to any group in South Sudan. South Sudan Armed Forces/ South Sudan Federal democratic party under the Chairmanship of Major General Anthony Ongwajja, Chairman and commander in chief of the group.

We want to inform the citizens that we have been in contact with SPLM/A IO Deputy Representative to the United Republic of Tanzania, Ambassador Peter Oyoyo Kleto to share information on the programmes of the two movements. As such we are declaring our total allegiance to SPLM/A under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

The leadership of South Sudan Armed Forces/ South Sudan Democratic Party would like to thanks Ambassador Peter Oyoyo Kleto, SPLM/A in opposition Deputy Representative to Tanzania for tirelessly working with us to reach this conclusion. We have given our list of demands to him to present to the Chairman and Commander in chief of SPLM/A Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

Our movement support the peace agreement to end the suffering of our people and we call for all citizens and warring parties to implement this agreement in full so that South Sudan may have peace, stability and prosperity. We have ordered all our forces to remain in their barracks in honor of the peace agreement and to only act in self defense.

Thank you.

This is not NUER problem. This is the problem of few individuals who were confused by the power of dollar. The NUER know what they are doing & where they are going. They have gathered around their visonary sons in SPLM IO. SPLM IO is the only hope of south sudan – take care of it ya junubi. SPLM IO leadership should take the burden to serve the people of south sudan. They should select leaders who are ready to serve the people not to serve them selves & their family. Otherwise, they will face what salva kiir government faced. They should side with the people always not with money & power. that is just my piece of advice.

I am deeply disappointed about the Nuers, they are really strong and powerful but behave like hynas, every body for himself in the expense of the unity, integrity and solidarity of Nuer and the other 62 tribes who have tried to fall behind the Nuer leader Dr. Riak Machar. It is time for you my brothers to restrain your greed and selfish temporary ambitions for the sake of your visionary leader whom we need to give him the chance to bring reforms and prosperity first, then you will start your ” Nyamaka” later. Why don’t you think of your people who died here in Juba. What level of greed do you have Mr. defectors. You doing the highest level of harm to your own people. Go and review your mind and join effort with your only current credible leader Dr. Riek Machar who have both internal and international credibility. Every body in this world have strengths and weaknesses, but let not capitalize on the weaknesses.Think big my Nuer friends.
