June 24, 2014 (JUBA) – The South Sudanese presidency has issued an appeal cautioning proponents and advocates for federalism to cease debate on the proposed system of governance, saying the need to achieve peace and social harmony was the country’s first priority.

Presidential spokesperson, Ateny Wek Ateny, told Sudan Tribune Tuesday that the country’s leadership under President Salva Kiir, seeks support from the proponents and opponents of federalism prioritising peace as first thing to be achieved.

He however said president Kiir was not opposed to federalism as a system, but did not want the attention of people from Equatoria region to be diverted over federalism, a system he said was being advanced by South Sudan’s former vice-president, Riek Machar.

"President Kiir appeals to the people of Equatoria to suspend the demand for federalism and focus on peaceful settlement of the current crisis first. The issue of federalism should be allowed to South Sudanese from all diverse tribes to decide in a referendum the type of governance system they want afterward”, observed Ateny.

He [Kiir] remains committed to forming a transitional government of national unity within sixty days as per the 10 June, 2014 agreement with the rebel leader, added the presidential aide.

The government, Ateny said, was still awaiting the outcome of the petition it recently filed over what was described as the "inappropriate" comments allegedly uttered by a member of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) towards president Kiir and Machar.

“The government delegation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is still waiting for IGAD’s apology for which one of its executive secretaries used inappropriate words, calling leader of one of IGAD’s member state stupid, was totally out of context and unacceptable”, said Ateny.

EQUATORIANS CRITICISED

Last week, the South Sudanese leader directly criticised the people of Greater Equatoria region over their growing demands for a federal system of governance, alleging that they were “set up” by rebels loyal to his former deputy-turned rebel leader Machar.

In his speech to the country’s national assembly members, president Kiir said the people of Greater Equatoria were speaking aloud on the rebels’ demand for federalism as if they were the first and only southerners to demand for the system from north Sudan in 1947.

He claimed rebel leader Machar introduced federalism as a strategy to split the position of the government.

      Ateny Wek, South Sudanese are confused between the government and the rebels. The hide and seek of peace process between the 2 groups has disappointed us. If the first priority is peace and reconciliation, when are we going to see it? It is not a matter of who wins in the peace talks but the matter of those suffering in camps in and outside of the country and general conditions of all S. Sudanese.

        Look at this stupid Ateny resembling stupid Kiir Kuethpiny. They pretend to want peace after starting the war on Dec 15. They want their stupid leadership confirmed so that they later on reject discussions or implementation of federalism. Now they are murdering Equatorians in Juba against their right to demand federalism. Are they not really “STUPID?”

        Kiir has no moral rights to warn Equatorians not to discuss federalism. Who gave him the rights to decide whether Southerners and specifically the Equatorians wanted "decentralization"? Those not wanting federalism can just get out of Equatoria and go to their luaks. That is our RED LINE!!

Federalism is debatable, whether the tribal chief like it or not The Equatorians had had enough from this culturally barbaric president, he must go.

        Did you realise that the rebellion was started by Salva Kiir? There was no rebellion until Juba citizens were massacred December 13 - 15.

        Salva Kiir is against federalism because it threatens his position.

        Salva Kiir is for senseless tribal warfare because it supports his position!

    President Kiir and his tribesmen like Ateny Wek are now taking the fight directly to the Equatorian camp. However what they fail to see is that any attempt to silence the discussion on federalism only opens the door wider for more dissent against this rotten regime.
    Equatorians who never saw Kiir’s use of dictatorship in order to remain in power are now asked to see and hear for themselves.

      I really doubt if dictator Salva Kiir and Ateny Wek understand the language they are using or the intention of their message. First and foremost,federalism is an overdue demand by equatorians and it has no connection with the demand by the rebels. The interest of equatorians and rebels happen to be one, federalism and there is no way for us to turn back on this demand. Why should we abandon

          What Salva and his tribemates did in Juba against Nuer is worst than Rwandan genocide because in Rwanda, Tutsis were not force or ask to eat their fellow human flesh like what happen in Juba, In Rwanda a pregnant woman’s stomach was not practically cut and a baby taken and killed like what happen in Juba, in Rwanda husbands were not ask to have sex with their spouse infront of the soldiers.

            Why were the innocent Nuer targeted? simply because they are Nuer. Some of them support the government but were not spared. Today is Nuer tomorrow is Equatoria or any other tribes. If the fake coup was by an equatorian, what happen to Nuer would be happening to equatorians, it is simple sense. 5 Dinkas were suspected of coup but no single Dinka was killed. Ya Jamaa, think properly.

    This is a clear difference between a dictator and a democrat. A dictator believes he is the only one who decides priorities yet ignoring the people’s choices and voices. The lack of peace and harmony he is crying about was brought by his failed system of governance. There is no better way to bring peace and harmony to South Sudan than instituting a better governance system

      Mr. President who said anyone is listening to you? We are tired of intimidation, harassment and the suppression of the freedom to express our dissatisfaction with your failed government and its leadership. We want federalism now. You talk of peace as if you care, yet your actions and words carry your darkest dictatorial character. Stop being stupid! Equotorians shall never surrender.

        This guy is nuts! He has completely lost the trust of the people he is warning! They shall never back off nor shall they vote for Kirr and his supporters in the next elections! Time for Kirr to go whether he likes it or not. If you want war, keep thwarting your dirty tongue...the negotiators in Addis must understand that only a federal interim government shall solve the crises.
