August 11, 2017(Nyamilepedia) —— Following the current total economic collapse in  South Sudan and death of 2015 peace agreement which has now resulted to high inflation rate, high cost of living, non-payment of salaries  for several months for military, organized forces, civil servants and embassies, restriction of   movement of humanitarian Aid workers and UN to the needy areas, high death rate among infants, elderly men and women due to lack of provision of essential drugs and delays in the distribution of relief items, increased number of people under detention without trial by the government of South Sudan, oppression ,closure of media houses  and silencing of the freedom of media, raping of women and looting of their properties by the South Sudan army in many parts of South Sudan, displacement of many South Sudanese both internally and in the neighboring countries in big numbers, presence of more active armed groups in the country;

We SPLA/M  IO  recommend  that President  Salva Kiir  vacate the de facto office in Juba to turn over the country  to a Pro-Tempore President  who   should come  from one of the smallest non Dinka tribes  in South Sudan and provide  save  exit  to President  Salva  Kiir and his family, entourage, and bodyguards with a free passage to either his own state of Warrap  or a friendly foreign country of his choice. The Pro-Tempore President will then form an all-inclusive  caretaker   technocratic  government, whose duty will be to  declare permanent  ceasefire, sign a new  peace agreement  with all armed groups and political parties, restore  peace, prepare and  organize elections  and lead the country to democratic elections within an agreed upon period.  This is how   President Charles Taylor of Liberia left the country and allowed peace to prevail in his country. This can easily be done with support of UN, IGAD and African Union. Time for President Salva Kiir to  exit  peacefully  is now.

If the rumour is true then South Sudan is stepping now in the right direction. You should accept that kind of decision regardless of who the government has been handed over to. Mama Rebeca, is worth leading the country if our people agree and that will minimize the cost of lives we are seeing.
