August 9, 2014 (BOR) – The deputy governor of South Sudan’s Jonglei state, Baba Medan, has vowed to mobilise forces against rebels should they fail to reach a peace deal with the government.

Addressing former child soldiers, popularly known as Red Army on Saturday, accused opposition forces led by former vice president Riek Machar of frustrating the ongoing talks mediated by the East African regional bloc (IGAD).

“Last time mobilisation was made in South Sudan for youth to join South Sudan army to end rebellion, but Murle did not go. Only those in the army participated. But this time, if peace doesn’t come, you will see what Murle will do,” remarked the deputy governor.

“Even Riek Machar will say sorry, I didn’t want it this way. Riek Machar will leave Akobo, Uror, Nyirol, Ayod and those other places,” he added.

Medan claimed several volunteers were to assist pro-government forces in the fight against the rebels to end the almost eight month-long conflict.

“There are people in Pibor now, who are crying with their guns, they want to fight, but we are telling them to sit and wait. If peace doesn’t come, we will release them,” he said.

The deputy governor, however, urged members of the red army to serve as peace envoys.

“Be the ambassadors of peace and unity to our people in the country. Let your name red army be for peace [and] tell Riek Machar to accept peace,” he said.

South Sudan’s warring parties are yet to agree on modalities for the establishment of a transitional government as the 60-day ultimatum agreed in May approaches.

    Deputy governor of Jonglei State, Baba Medan. You are absolutely right, this killer Riek Machar Teny doesn’t care the life of others Nuers people this is why he always created rebellions so that, his own tribe will pay the price. I would advise GOSS and all States to waits the mediator period but if they violated again then, you guys must crushed them, destroying them and defeated them and follow.

      Hi Madene, please don’t propagated lies, Murlie and Nuer problem is over, Nuer are now residing in Likuagole and Murlie are vice visa in Akobo, Waat and Nyirol, Please stop your selfish interest, allow Murlie instead to go to school where they will compete with other South Sudanese in future.

      Mr. Medan, Do you know the military phrases “Tribes Counter insurgence strategy” this is precisely what Kir government want to do, they want to use tribe against tribe to quell the rebellion, so please Medan, watch out, your Murle tribes will be victim and he Kir will not care! Why didn’t he use Warap against unity state? Why only Upper Nile tribes against one another? Why don’t you guys watch ou

        @ Ayuiu Makuac, Yesterday Nuer and Dinka were Murle husband, today Murle and Dinka become Nuer husband according to you! the psychologist had already diagnosed your problem,(greedy). In South Sudanese culture, "greedy man" is a curse to the community, and that is exactly how you are. you are a curse to the Dinka population. Beside you are putting Kir into problem by proving the war tobe tribal.

    That’s right Deputy governor of Jonglei State. Machar doesn’t listen to people. He learns from seeing similar to 1991 war. I think he didn’t learn enough lesson from that war. Let’s wait for peace or Machar will run to Eth

    What an idiot it seemed like Dinka find another stooge from Murle they can use for public consumption. Where were those youth you talking about when Lou Nuer Youth overran all your counties? If Dr. Riek Machar didn’t convinced Lou Nuer Youth to return home you would nothing to mobilize today. stop running your mouth and give Dr. Riek a thumb up for saving your people from danger.

      Mr. Jijury. Dinkas people are not Idiot like Nuers people. Soon or later the 2nd largest tribe in South Sudan will be Zade tribe and the 3th will be Bari tribe,4th will be Toposa and Nuer tribe will be in 5th position if that Riek Machar war continues for three years mark my word. Some Nuer politicians are good and I will not generalizing all Nuers are bad like Rike Machar. But majority are bad.

      Jubawe or whatsoever is your name,
      Dinkas were the liberators of the S.Sudan. during the war 98% of Equartorians were with Arabs, 96% of Nuers were with Arabs, 99% of Fetit were with Arabs, 80% of Murle were on their own. You are now proud of S.Sudan independence at the expenses of Dinkas blood lost for the last 21 years. Your idiotic laughter got no impact at all.

        The whole Dinkas land was under Jalaby that is the fact. Equatorians land was under Equatorians except Juba and Torit.

    My great South Sudan African brothers and sisters:

    Pls bury the "Divide & RULE" and unite as UNITY is the great power. We are true sons and daughters of Adam & Eve.

    South Sudan is rich state like north Sudan and whole Africa as to UN, WHO,...our national resources are not used...so we will be suppliers to the world.

    If Baba medan did say that!He may be right because of his inexperienced in public role . his statement and commitment didn’t hit any target at all, leave alone position he is holding . Sooner he will be kick out of Jonglei and pay other things murle has no match with Nuer, 2012 incident proved that . so position of deputy governor was free kick awarded to people of murle

    The very tiny Murle seems to forget what the Mighty Nuer Warriors have done to them in many occasions.

    Had the Nuer ever wished to occupy the whole greater Upper Nile, from Renk to Mading Bor and from Ruweng/Biemnom to Buma-Gambella, it seems unlikely that the other coward Jurs (Jaang, Teet, Bar, Chai…) could have stopped them.
