January 16, 2014 (JUBA) - South Sudanese president Salva Kiir Mayardit has reiterated that he will not agree to release political detainees until all due legal processes have been completed, as specified under the transitional constitution, his office said on Thursday.

South Sudanese president Salva Kiir has steadfastly maintained he is not willing to negotiate with rebel forces over the release of political detainees currently being held in connection to an alleged coup attempt on 15 December (AP)

The comments come as peace talks currently underway in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, aimed at reaching a ceasefire agreement between the two warring parties remain deadlocked, amid disagreement over the release of the prisoners.

Meanwhile the head of the government delegation to the IGAD sponsored talks with the rebels, Nhial Deng Nhial, has returned to Juba along with the minister of information, Michael Makuei Lueth, for more consultations with the government officials in Juba.

“The government has said time and again it is committed to peaceful dialogue with the rebel group so that this situation gets out of the way so that we begin to open a new page. This position has not changed. We are committed to this principle, and expect the other side to reciprocate”, South Sudan’s deputy foreign affairs minister”, Peter Bashir Gbandi, said .

PRECONDITIONS “UNACCEPTABLE”

“Unfortunately, the other side is raising conditions which are unacceptable”, he added.

The South Sudanese government has continued to defy mounting international pressure to release the detainees, which include the ruling party’s former secretary-general, Pagan Amum.

Gbandi said his government will not be swayed by demands set by rebel forces as preconditions for ceasefire negotiations.

“Despite assurances of our commitment to peaceful dialogue so that these issues are resolved amicably as brothers and sisters, we are being given conditions that we release political detainees first before [the] ceasefire is affected”, said Gbandi, adding that no other government in the world would agree to such terms.

“Since they are believed to have played a critical role, they cannot just be released simply [because] there is a pressure. Legal processes and procedures have to be followed according to the constitution”, he added.

NO PROGRESS

Meanwhile, presidential spokesperson Ateny Wek Ateny confirmed that no progress had been made in negotiations for a cessation of hostilities.

He maintained the government would only release officials currently behind bars once all necessary legal procedures and processes had been completed.

Ateny has also accused pro-Machar rebels of being a “glove-puppet” to foreign governments, without elaborating further.

He criticised rebel forces of using the political prisoners had no bearing on the root causes of the current conflict in South Sudan and therefore the matter should not be used as a precondition to drive the agenda of peace talks.

“The rebels are becoming [a] puppet of some western countries. They are now raising conditions which were not the cause of the rebellion. They are asking for the release of the political detainees, lifting the state of emergency and the withdrawal of the Ugandan troops”, said Ateny, emphasising that the government would not accept such conditions

HOPES FOR PEACE DEAL

Meanwhile, the government’s lead negotiator, Nhial Deng Nhial, has expressed some optimism for a peaceful resolution to the current crisis, saying the two sides continued to show willingness to sign an agreement on the cessation of hostilities, despite ongoing stumbling blocks which continue to derail the talks.

“We are hopeful that these talks produce desirable results. There is [an] intense process that is going on with the aim of exploring [the] best options and possibilities to expedite a possible ceasefire”, said Nhial.

“Yes, there are reservations, but we are working with our partners and other actors to see that they are overcome. The other side insists on the release of the political detainees. They also want [the] state of emergency to be lifted in the two states of Jonglei and Unity. There are other issues”, said Nhial.

        So you cowards only depend on the foreign forces of Uganda to save you and make you maintain life in Juba. There is a bad news though, pro-democracy forces of Machar are coming to Juba soon with or without you Ugandans. See they are 90km away from Juba, matching far from Bor which is more than 200km. Do you see the sign now?

        Maybe you don’t understand the reason behind the demands. We want the war to go on and remove Kiir. We don’t want a ceasefire. See, that is why we give Kiir the demand to release prisoners and withdraw UPDF so that if Kiir refuses it, we like it as the war will continue. I like it that Kiir refuses the demand. It makes it easier for us!!!!

          Even on the first day in Juba fighting, it was the traitor Gen. James Hoth Mai and other bought Nuer generals who fought for you to secure Juba while your coward soldiers were free killing innocent Nuer civilians from house to house. You need some Nuer, Ugandans, Equatorians, etc to try to balance the war, otherwise you alone as Dinka would have been dealt with in a week time like women.

    This is very dummy claim. And I wonder whether Kiir and his advisers understand the implication of their claim for legal process which cannot be separated from nation constitution which he (Kiir) has already violated by inviting foreign troops Ugandans to our land. Off course the thinking is set to cover the genocide against Nuer should the rebel thereafter be suppressed.

          How the Uganda troops will protect Nuer in those states where Nuer are the majority but not in Juba. Off course the opposite is true that Museveni is now your president and Kiir is his copy. The fact is our youth have met them in battle field more than eleven times now and the result is, museveni will be impeach in his first country for lying and die in his new founded country of S. South.

      Th term suspect should not be used as a pretext of covering crimes against humanity as is currently the case of Nuer genocide in Juba. In fact the political detainees are not criminals nor did they violated an inch of S. South constitution. The prime suspect for crimes is Kiir himself plus his advisers who claim to be lawyers while in reality are not, which is another grave crime in itself.

            Don’t lie. In 1991 the Nuer never mobilized to fight the Dinka. They were only focusing on securing the right to self determination and made an agreement with Khartoum, but not to fight Dinka. This war is different. Nuer soldiers who are in Bahr el Ghazal are waiting for orders to start destroying your towns. The last cry will be in Bahr el Ghazal after Upper Nile & Equatoria!!!

              Machar if involved in the scandal or not what take this disagreement as to weather to public the top government corrupt officials or not as an opportunity to take power by force with the backing of these criminals.

      Just say hold your bud Museveni’s dog since your voice has evaporated and go to ICC since international community has say no against your tricky claim of coup. Coup!! How can innocent children and women of Nuer could possibly plan a coup? Moron, K-M THAT is Museveni-Kiir Genocide. M-K genocidal plan is stone age in design. Dummy presidents.

        Tut Tut,
        I real believe and recommend Machar’s doctrine (Dr.) to be up graded with out him going for further studies. Because , he actual managed to confuse not only us the little educated South Sudanese but even the highly educated developed world that he has not attempted a failed coup.If he didn’t plan to do so, why has he captured Bor, Bentiu and is struggling to Capture Malakal?

      Hello readers,
      Kirr will not release those detainees else his husband (Munseveni) has tell him to so. This man (Kirr) is 100% relied on Museveni militarily, as well as politically. Museveni is the only gateway for his survival. He will only do whatever Museveni tell him to do because he is a dead head pig who knows only how to drink alcohol. Shame indeed.

    Dinkas are very wise.They can wait to see what the other camp mean.Then they hire foreign agents to pacify primitive tribes of the Nile.1998,Dinka called thunder to fight Nuer in Panyagoor.This time we will be forced to use moto guns.Accept peace earlier.God is getting impatient.He wants to bring on thunders,brimestone and sulphuric acid on apes.

    If Kiir release those detainees then his plan to remain in power fail because those are the politician who will go to media and challenge incompetence Kiir. Better to try may be he shall win or die like president of Libya.

    Coup attempt plus rebellion are heinous crimes which can not be taken lightly.Those who still dream of the release of coup plotters are lunatics and they should prepare for their funerals.Who will answer the death of 10,000 South Sudanese?

    In 1908-10, the British sought to end the Nuer occupation toward Dinkaland and established control over the area. A new border between the Nuer and Dinka was established at the favor of Dinka at Duk Padiet, fifty miles north of Kongor, and the Ghol, Ric, and Nyarraweng were awarded about four thousand aquare miles of territory they had previously lost during Nuer expansion.

    Coward Dinka. Without the present Uganda troops, your stupid King Kiir would already have been a dead meat by now, but still the Lion King bullet will soon be on his head.
