Jan 30, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — We the SPLM Youth chapter in Ethiopia strongly condemn IGAD, and other International bodies for failing to condemn Juba massacres but instead opts to reward the killer with more powers to kill more South Sudanese in the near future.
This is not only illogical but creation of weak institutions by the bodies entrusted in the regions to maintain security and promote peace and stability. It sounds completely an insult to the voice of democracy, justice and truth as the world continues to allow thugs to leads the peace talks without proper solution but caring for their interests.
The world knows what trigger the crisis in the new nation because of Salva Kiir’s folly to maintain the seat of power for generations to come, and the entire country is now in full disaster. Juba massacred in which thousands of innocents Nuer civilians were slaughtered, and Uganda used international banned cluster bombs against the populace in south Sudan, yet, the world went silent.
With all these madness in practices, the right bodies in charge of world peace continue to incline on the pressing issues in south Sudan. Where on earth can a killer be reward with powers to what some prominent individuals consider to be preserving the “democratically elected government”. Who elected Salva Kiir in south Sudan? Perhaps, Dr. Rice voted him in to kill the people of south Sudan. This is unfortunate.
We are sadden to learn recently that IGAD is threatening the Opposition to take their ill proposal on power sharing which we see as the youth in Ethiopia will never bring peace but prolong the war in the country. The focus should not be rewarding a killer but providing justice to thousands families, and displaced populations by the government of tyranny regime in Juba.
Therefore, any agreement aiming to reward a killer is an illusion and not targeting the most wanted peace in the new nation. Our stand is, we will never support any agreements aiming to rewards Salva Kiir and maintains him in power to destroy our nation. We are aware that the conflict in South Sudan spills over many benefits to the region, China and other supper powers, however, we would rather continue the war until Salva Kiir is toppled than maintaining Salva Kiir’s regime.
