October 15, 2013 (JUBA) - South Sudan president Salva Kiir has warned members of the armed forces against misuse of weapons, saying they are for self defence and protection of the nation as well as its citizens.

Kiir, while speaking at graduation ceremony for new presidential guards, said he expects high standards of professionalism from army.

The group, which was passed, had completed two years of intensive military training at Luri, about 16 miles west of the capital, Juba.

"These guns are not for me. They are not for you nor are they for anybody even the last person in this country. Their main purpose is to protect the country and the citizens against any danger from outside and protect yourself but only in self defence. Is this clear? Have you now heard the purpose of guns?” Kiir asked.

“The army can help police to enforce [the] law, ensure there is adequate security and the country is safe and peaceful from external aggression. If this is done, [then] the country will be free from crimes, such as rape, theft and robbery that we hear [of]”, he stressed.

Consequently, this can ensure the rule of law that is indispensable for economic, education, health and social development endeavours, added the president.
The South Sudanese leader further noted that progress in the country can be possible only through peace, stability, the rule of law and unity.

“Authority is granted not to be abused, but to lead the development of an institution”, he said.

SPECIAL FORCES

Several hundreds of soldiers reportedly selected mostly from indigenous youth from Warrap and Northern Bhar el Ghazal states were reportedly brought to Luri area, without the knowledge of the army’s chief of general staff, Gen. James Hoth Mai.

It was reported that Kiir, who is the commander-in-chief of the army, fell out with Gen. Mai, on the fate of the new comers, which the president wanted deployed as part of the already 3,000 presidential guards positioned in Juba.

The current 3,000 presidential guards unit in the capital is reportedly composed of the forces that used to guard president, Kiir, the former vice-president, Riek Machar, and the late Gen. Paulino Matip, although a majority of them are said to come from a single tribe.

However, the chief of staff, sources say, disagreed on the composition and selection of the new force from one community that were brought to Juba, through the office of the president.

For instance, he reportedly refused to recognize them or deploy them in Juba, claiming that the right selection process and deployment channels were not followed.

But, despite Mai’s reservations on what seemed to be a private force, the soldiers were, however, undergoing training for the last few months at Luri Bridge.

The president was, on Monday, shown on the state-owned SSTV graduating these new forces, during which he identified them as republican guards.

Gen. Mai did not, however, accompany the president to the graduation ceremony despite the fact that his presence at the event should have been the normal protocol for graduating the forces.

The absence of the army chief at graduation furthered speculations in the capital that he has maintained his refusal to recognise the force in his regular deployments as the head of the army.

OLD LIBERATION SONGS

Kiir also advised the recruits to stop singing old liberation songs, saying they were which no longer applicable to the current situation as they were composed and sung to raise moral of the former rebels during the bush war.

Meanwhile Kiir, in his remarks broadcast on SSTV, also reminded the new soldiers to maintain the sense of belonging to the whole nation and not to an individual leader.

“I urge you to stop singing some of the songs you have just sung. You are not soldiers belonging to an individual,” he told the graduation.

Maj. Gen. Marial Cinduong Yol, the commander of the presidential guard division, urged asked the recruits to respect and protect foreign nationals living the country, explaining that they were in the country to assist in development.

“They [foreigners] have come to assist us in development. Some of them are investors [and] others are experts. They should therefore be shown respect and protection they deserve with their properties", Yol told the forces.

Those who commit crimes should be monitored and dealt with by the law by relevant institutions, which are already there, he added.

South Sudan’s military is constituted from former rebels - the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) - who became the country’s national army after secession from neighbouring Sudan in 2011 as part of a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of conflict.

Since independence, the SPLA has on several occasions been accused of human rights violations against civilians, most notably in Jonglei state where it is fighting a rebellion and trying to prevent cattle raids between rival ethnic groups.

The army, however, denies these accusations saying its mandate is to protect citizens, not harm them as alleged.

      I no from the beginning that this coward incompetent monster called Salva Kiir declared war on S. Sudan when he removed the vice pres. and dissolved the entire cabinet at the same day. Kiir is thus fearful 2 lose 2015 elections that’s why he now had managed 2 train militias from his hometown in hope that they will protect him if Jinubeen wage war against his gov’t. He even ignored Dinka Bor sect.

        Incompetent Kiir got scared and brought his gelweng militias from Warrap and Aweil because the current 3,000 presidential guards in Juba are 75% Nuer. But the 750 new gelweng militias are nothing to protect Kiir who has revealed his lack of trust to the 3,000 commanded by Gen. Yien Makuac. Those of Aweil also don’t trust those of Warrap as they clashed too last month at Luri.

        Mike Mike,
        Don’t be a skeleton liar. Read the article again and again and again, it talks of the force from Warrap and NBGS. Kiir is a fool and can do that. I was told he had given them the name as ’katiba wetka’, meaning ’brotherhood battalion’ in Dinka. This is why they sang in Dinka praising Kiir as the king of South Sudan, which Kiir advised them not to reveal to the public in the song.

          Con:and that doesn’t meant those pple came from his tribe,and the reason why the president was advising the soldiers not to sing the old liberation songs is simply b,coz some of the songs are committing negatively about the former Nyagets like those of Riek,paulino Matip Nhal,Gabriel Tinganyang,Gai Tut and many others from nuer tribe.That was the motive behind prevention of old liberation songs.

          Out of the 3,000 current presidential guards, over 2,000 are Nuer and this is why incompetent Kiir was scared and recruited 700 gelweng from warrap and aweil. But still they are a drop in the ocean. Presidential guards are dominated by Nuer and Gen. Hoth will not redeploy them. Kiir will be pushed against the wall and if he declares war, I will take him to Hague court, dead or alive!!

    Naath/Nuer,
    When Nuer value is not longer adequate to hold the community together instead of self-interests, the community faces big challenges. In other words, putting nationalism above Nuer interest, Nuer interest faces the gravest crisis it has never encountered since 1800s. Neither condemnation nor blaming will change the course the rising-empire took.

    Which means, the rising-Kingdom must not be deterred by words; rather, it must be engaged with strategies follow by actions.

    Kimdoms come in all reigns, but RSS [the Dinka Kingdom) is differ from all since it reigns through autocracy rule. The Dinka empire tribalist nature has been confirmed since its inception in 1983.

    conducted massacre against Gajaak sub-clan of Eastern Jikany Nuer simply because they were believed to side with Samuel Gai Tut’s group of Anya-Nya II. Many lives were lost especially women and children while destroyed almost all the villages along the Baro/Sobat River completely. Some people may wonder why Col. Gatluak Gai got killed while in the middle of peace processes to re-join...

    the rising-Kingdom. Col. Gatluak’s death is not a big surprise to those who know the motive behind this Kingdom. The Dinka Empire has been using the SPLM party and SPLA as tools to pursue interest(s) of one ethnic group (the Dinka) at the expenses of others in the South.

    The presidential guards are from one section of tribe. This is not a nationalism government anymore. This also tells all of us that the president is planning to stay in power until the day when his death comes. That is the reason why he is now being protected by his tribesmen in which he is now calling the Presidential guards. There is no respect for free elections anymore. We need to do something

    Don’t try to confuse others Mr. President.This would have been a good speech if those 3,000 guards are from all ten states, but because they are all your nephews, you showed the the people of South Sudan, you are tribal President.Any every leader in South Sudan is protected by his own people. Dr. Garang and even Dr.Riek did the same thing.Mr.Odingo is a man far a way from tribalism.
