December 16, 2013 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s president, Salva Kiir, has accused former vice-president Riek Machar of alleged involvement in Sunday’s attack on a military base in the country’s capital, Juba.

Speaking at a press conference in Juba, Kiir, who was clad in full military attire, said “a group of soldiers allied to the former vice-president Dr Riek Machar and his group” attacked the army headquarters near Juba University.

“These attacks continued until this morning”, said Kiir, who was flanked by his deputy, James Wani Igga.

Sporadic gunfire, which started on Sunday evening, rocked the capital and continued on Monday morning, sending residents into panic as soldiers were deployed to the streets and strategic areas.

Describing Machar as a “prophet of doom [who] continues to persistently pursue his actions of the past”, Kiir made reference to the 1991 split in which the ex-vice president defected from the southern-based rebel group during its civil war with Sudan.

“However, I would like to inform you, at the outset, that your government is in full control of the security situation in Juba”, said Kiir, who is also commander-in-chief of the national army (SPLA).

“The SPLM is fully committed to the peaceful and democratic transfer of power and will never allow political power to be transferred through violence”, he added.

Unconfirmed reports, however, say residents within Juba and its outskirts were fleeing the capital, but Sudan Tribune could not independently verify these reports.

CURFEW IN JUBA

Meanwhile, the South Sudanese leader has announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew in Juba, saying justice would prevail on those behind the attack.

“The curfew will start from 6pm to 6am local time in Juba”, Kiir told reporters.

HUNDREDS CAMP AT UNMISS

The United Nations said hundreds of civilians, mainly women and children, have sought refuge in their compound adjacent to the country’s airport, as well as their base in Jebel Kujur area.

“While UNMISS is not a humanitarian operator, and our mandate is to protect civilians, basic water supplies and medical treatment are being provided. We hope the security situation in Juba will quickly normalise to enable the civilians to return very soon to their residential areas”, it said in a statement.

The UN also called on all parties to show restraint, dismissing reports that it was harbouring key political or military figures linked to the incident.

US ADVISES ITS CITIZENS

Meanwhile, the United States embassy in Juba advised its citizens in the country to exercise extra caution at all times.

“The US embassy will continue to closely monitor the security environment in South Sudan, with particular attention to Juba city and its immediate surroundings, and will advise US citizens further if the security situation changes”, it said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

      Ahahahaaaaa......Incompetent Kiir was scared to death by only 2% of the army in Juba. He couldn’t go to office or close the NLC meeting on today. I was told Gen James Hoth Mai saved him. Hoth mobilized neutral soldiers from Nuer, Dinka, Equatorians, etc and persuaded the presidential guards to stop fighting and withdraw from the barrack they captured. Gen. Hoth is now Kiir’s God father in Juba.

    Juba alone is not South Sudan. If Juba is secured now, how about the other ten states. What if the whole thing transpired into another rebellion joining forces with David Yau Yau. We are just tired of all these nonsense. This country needs to divide further into small states so that birds of the same feather fly together instead of this forced unity being imposed on us.

If it was planned, there could be a central commands and Kirr could not survived at all. fact: Gen. James Hoth was trying to separate the both sides to stop fighting, but failed and was forced to defend the government position. No doubt Kirr is fighting with democracy.

          Rommel,
          Kim doesn’t look at me with contempt but those of you that are supporting the blind man Kiir. Some call Kiir doctor which is laughable. This man can’t even pass grade eight exam. You are foolish by association. Look at Kiir and the future of South Sudan, South Sudan is bigger than one’s man’s greed and idiocy.

            How many times must I tell you that I don’t support Salva Kiir!? I loathe the man; the sooner that he’s out of government, the better... I just don’t want Riek to replace him. Ps: Kim looks upon all Dinkas with absolute contempt. This is a man that thinks that the Dinka of Greater Upper Nile should either accept Nuer cultural hegemony — become Nuer, or flee to Bahr el Ghazal.

              I know that, but that is not how I look at things. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, that is where I am coming from. Kim and I perceive a common threat, we both have one enemy destroying S. Sudan, so he & I are friends at this juncture. Nuer being Kings and Dinka as slave is something I will settle latter with him, not now.

                There are plenty of people that oppose Salva Kiir and his sorry excuse of a ’government’, that you quite simply wouldn’t need to ally yourself with hate-filled, brain-dead hicks like Kim Deng. You don’t need him! Your political program should be firmly guided by principles, not dictated to by shifting circumstance (s).

                  i don’t see the reason why should you engaged yourself in debate with disgruntle individuals who will not accept the truths.even if Salva Kiir is A weak leader,Riek Machar can never never be alternative.if the likes were given arrest warrant by president Kiir ,this would have been the subject of the day but thanks God they stared it.

              I agreed with you totally. No body should supporting Dr Criminal from whole South Sudan, leave a lone Dinka. I know why Ahmed Chol frustrated so much about lazy Kiir, but kiir is lazy patriot corrupter person that should be change by Criminal who sold out a lot of things to Arab eg Panthou oil. The guy done more damage than what Kiir done to SS.

                  Dear, brother, it seems that people are ignorant of Riek’s human rights violations, his caustic tribal rhetoric and his history of failures. He is not -and never will be- a viable alternative. People misinterpret our opposition to Riek’s ascension to Executive office as being tribal in nature, when nothing could be further from the truth.

                      This is what Riek said to a journalist-historian in the wake of the 1991 split:
                      He discounted tribalism as “from a different age”, though boasted that he has “not seen a Nuer who doesn’t support me.” In the same breath, he added, “if there is a tribal element, the Nuer would destroy all the Dinka.” (Me Against My Brother: At War in Somalia, Sudan and Rwanda, Scott Peterson)

                        Riek justified the Bor Massacre, saying that it was meant to show Garang that he must negotiate a peace with the breakaway group and couldn’t overpower them with force. He claimed that he felt acute “embarrassment” because “so many civilians were caught in the crossfire.” (Me Against My Brother: At War in Somalia, Sudan and Rwanda, Scott Peterson)

                            The massacre was not the end of the tragedy in Bor, however. An estimated 100, 000 people fled the area following the attack, and after many of the villages had been burnt to the ground. According to Amnesty International, famine brought about by looting and the destruction of crops and livestock killed a further 25, 000 people, many of them children. ( South Sudan Max Lovell-Hoare)

A man so disturbed, so delusional that he so sickeningly boasted that his tribe could wipe out an entire tribe — the Dinka!? He thought that his tribal war against the Dinka in the 90s was going to be a trifling affair... he was mistaken.

    DUDE, you are very right. Some idiots here don’t know anything. Salva Kiir tried to order an arrest against Riek in which the general refused to take such orders. He then turn to other soldiers who are loyal to him and they tried to go after Riek but failed as they found his guards were ready for them. Now dress in Military shows Iddi Amin style. This is beginning of tribal conflict.
