Lt. Col. Paddy Ankunda made this remarks in the wake of recent demands from the United States for withdrawal of foreign troops involved in South Sudan’s conflict.

The participation of foreign forces, the US argued, contravenes the cessation of hostilities agreement reached on 23 January between South Sudan’s warring parties.

But Ankunda denied reports that Uganda had violated the ceasefire, only admitting its troops recently helped South Sudan army (SPLA) repel rebel threats in Jonglei state.

“What if violence rolls back into Bor, Juba after UPDF withdraw, will the US be there to help?” he asked.

The Ugandan military spokesperson also accused rebels loyal to South Sudan former vice-president Riek Machar of allegedlly killing 28 civilians at Kolyang East of Bor in Jonglei state.

“[They] also attacked Pariak village looting and pillaging,” he added.

REBELS ACCUSE UGANDAN ARMY

Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang, the military spokesman for SPLM/SPLA In Opposition on Friday claimed Ugandan warplanes spread aeriel bombardments in South Sudan’s Upper Nile State.

“On 13-2-2014, government troops and thier allies attacked our forces at Anak-Diar 30km east of Malakal town and received air support during two hours of heavy fighting,” he said.

"Ground attacks and the bombing of our positions by Ugandan continued in Lakes state for the 4th day whereas on 13-2-2014, government forces and their allies attacked our forces at Gadiang some 90km north of Bor town in Jonglei state," he added.

"Both attacking forces were repulsed in Yirol, Anak-Diar and Gadiang".

The rebel spokesperson said Uganda’s involvement in the South Sudanese internal conflict remains the biggest obstacle to achieving peace.

"Museveni’s tireless efforts in undermining and defying regional and international powers calling for immediate withdrawal of his troops is mind boggling", he stressed.

        Mapuor,
        Ugandan are not feeding our children. opposition is correct. We are feeding them because of the lack of infrastructures such as schools, hospitals, and other services from your Kirr corrupt leadership. that’s why M7 don’t want a visionary leader with strong leadership so that we depend on their economy sitting till the coming of Jesus Christ.

Arkunda has replaced Philip Aguer and talks of Dinka as baby fighters who need Ugandans in order to survive. Ahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa..............

            Thank you for hitting the Point. The SPLA is now being replaced by UPDF. Soon M7 will preside over cabinat Meetings and the South will be own by Ugandans. All Ugandan criminals, thugs, prostitures with HIV/AIDS are flocking to South and want to take over cos Kiir has told them to do so. Soon Bashir will also want to own the South. Poor South Sudan, who owns the South??????

            SPLA doen’t want more deaths, this is why they are refusing to allow the UPDF who are acting as mediators from leaving SS. Rebels should also understand that this is meant for their own good. If they leave, rebels will attack and we will experience more deaths on both sides.

        Mapour,
        It is not about nyagaats it is about "aryan jenges". Over 80% of South Sudan´s oil monies was looted by jenges. Now the nyagaats feel this is their oil and have to stop these jenges from feeding on what is not theirs. Like the rest of the Southerners who dearly fought in 21 years they have come with nothing except these jenge scoundrels who greedily took everything. Scum.

    The USA and the UN will after some times discover who is Riek and what he represents in South Sudan.
    The Nuer as a tribe cannot be allowed by any sensible responsible nation to spoil the country unless another Somalia needed to be created in S Sudan. The Nuer rebels even if supported by the US cannot win any war against the Dinkas but they can only produce turmoil in the country.

    Famous Story of THE ARAB AND HIS CAMEL: it was very cold in the desert. The Arab was inside the tent, the camel outside. Because of the pitch cold, the camel requested to let his ears in, then his whole head, and then its whole body. Finally the Arab was kicked out. The tent remained for the Camel alone. Soon Kiir will test the real intensions of the Ugandans. Dr. Marial Benjamin will bark louder.
