In statements to the official Radio Omdurman on Friday , Abkr said that the SPLM-N combatants celebrated the presidential decision of unilateral truce adding that some rebel leaders are "tired of a war they are waging against their will".

    This Agent of doom and evilism has reminded me of big and shameful NIF’ lies of 1990s when they say without shame that Dinka’s SPLA is finished and its remnants are being spotted leaving their last hold territory of Nimule towards Uganda. Everyone knows what has happened then, it was Independence.
