Jan 19, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- Responding to Armed Opposition leader’s statement of not going to Juba unless Salva Kiir revoke the creation of 28 states and evacuate all the security inside Juba to outside the city as per the agreement. Salva Kiir Mayardit on Sunday vowed never to reverse the decree that created 28 states referring to such a demand as a “wishful thinking” or rather “an Imaginery joke aiming to undermine the demand of the people of south Sudan.”
The president’s latest remarks put the hope of peace implementation process into a big dillemma. According to many government supporters, any discussion shouldn’t touch the calls to reverse 28 states since it is a “redline”.
A reliable source speaking to Nyamilepedia Correspondent claimed the president already drawn-out a plan to deal with those thinking to provoke his spirit of peace and those undermining the effort to take government closer to the people.
“The president made it very clear when visited by section of Jieng Council of Elders that he will never revoke the decree by any chance despite forces threatening to push him change his mind.”
According to the source,
“Mr. President is convinced by his decision to preserve such an act as part of his legacy. So, giving up to this popular demand is like he is rewarding the enemies and sacrificing his legacy for the people he defeated.”
South Sudan crisis killed tenths of thousands, displaced more than 1million to the neighboring countries while more than 200, 000 civilians under the protection of the UNMISS inside the country. Recently, the humanitarian agencies put more than 4 millions to risk if facing food insecurity.
The peace signed in August by the warrying factions is currently facing obstacles. The creation of the 28 states by the President is one focus in point.
