February 17, 2013 (JUBA) – The governor of South Sudan’s Western Equatoria state has warned citizens against any attempt to overthrow the legitimately elected government in the country through a coup d’état.

Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro raised rumours about an attempted coup d’état in Juba at the recently concluded Greater Equatoria conference held in the capital.

“This rumour is affecting people’s initiatives and the potential to develop the new country,” he said.

The Greater Equatoria region in the new nation comprises of Central, Eastern and Western Equatoria.

Bakosoro, the only independent candidate elected as governor during the 2010 gubernatorial election, also questioned why the Greater Eqautoria populations have remained silent over coup rumours, which have been circulating widely in the country since last year.

“We hear there are conspiracies to overthrow the legitimate government of the Republic of South Sudan. My question is, as Equatorians, have we raised our voice to denounce the rumours?” he asked.

“Do we have any decisions or say in our region? Can we come up vigorously and boldly to counter any rumour of potential aggression against our government?”

Last year, amidst widespread rumours of an attempted coup, South Sudanese president Salva Kiir warned that the international community would not recognise anyone who overthrows his democratically elected government. A number of senior military officials allegedly behind the plot were subsequently arrested and detained. The army, however, said the arrests had nothing to do with the alleged coup plot.

In his remarks, the governor also urged the Equatorian population to defend the truth and take the current leadership to task on the fate of Abdalla Raham Sule, a South Sudanese opposition leader arrested and detained for rebelling against the government.

“Have we raised any motion to ask the government about the case and fate of Abdalla Rahan Sule? It is time to talk and defend the truth,” he said.

While addressing the two-day conference in Juba, the governor said the government should consider insecurity as its major threat and leave no stone unturned in its efforts to curb conflict.

He said any individual or group of individuals attempting to create conflict in South Sudan should be dealt with according to the law.

“There is need for justice for all without fever,” he emphasised.

The Western Equatoria governor further reminded the Equatorians of their contribution during South Sudan’s liberation war, saying the long struggle by the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/ Army (SPLAM/A) succeeded largely because of the “enormous” contribution made by Equatorians.

“With this excellent reputation, let us all unite and be alert that Equatoria is not used [by] trouble-makers to cause turmoil, Bakosoro said, while appealing to citizens to give peace a chance.

The two-decade civil war, ended through a 2005 peace deal, and was largely fought by the predominantly Arab-Muslim north and African-Christian South Sudanese. An estimated 2.5 million people reportedly lost their lives, with nearly four million displaced.

Meanwhile, the governor strongly advocated for the creation of a standing committee at the conference, saying previous meetings have not yielded results due to the absence of such a body to monitor, support, supervise and evaluate the resolutions of the Equatoria conference.

    Bakosoro, shut the hell up! Who hired you to talk like this? All Dinka and Nuer men are busy here in the Almighty border, trying to block gang Bashiir. If the equatorian idiots people want plot the coup, then be Frank. You’re the number # 1 racist governor in South Sudan that I never heard of. Kiir, removed him too he was a nyagaat before. Fuck everyone who hate war with North Sudan!

      Mr Panthou,
      I am not an Equatorian but I would say that they are rational people and they know what leadership means! They understood Dr.Garang very well more than any other Dinkas and that was the reason they stood up to their promises, otherwise if Equatorians were behaving like any other hostile tribes, SPLA wouldn’t had a base to launch its attack from. Please stop generalizing all Equatorian!

      The Western Equatoria is campaigning for the Coup de tairt in South. What?Releasing the Rebel Abdallaman Sulei is like throwing devil into the Continenent.No way shall Sule be out of jail completely. If the Government attempt to release him then why did they Kill George Athor? was it because of rebelling against the Government of South. He must be Kill too and one day Yau Yau too must be Kill.

He murdered the Rebel leader and invited Sule abdaharaman to initiative Coup against Republic through Western Equatoria.

      Governor Bakosoro is a patriot for that matter, he has a love for the country. But internally, he is a tribalist. He Bakosoro and I are studying in the same university in Kampala, Uganda. During an election of South Sudanese Students Union in Uganda last year, he did something so tribalistic of which I was not expecting of him, instead to look at us as South Sudanese students.

      Do you know that Garang was about to throw off the SPLA/M in 1994-5 only to be persuaded by Equatorians to hold on while some jenges and nyagateen had crossed over to Beshir? These "hashraat" were comfortable with the Jellaba. Note, the Equatorians will dialogue or use force when necessary. Kokora will be revisited soon.

      You never grew in Juba and so have no history of Juba. The name Atlabara was used by ordinary Juba people who used to chase-off hungry jenges standing along the fences in the early 60s. These jenges used to carry water in Juba for the residents and were a nuisance and so they said" Atla bara ya aryan jenge" and so the jellaba took over from there. That is history, ya jenge.
