August 10, 2016 (JUBA) - South Sudanese government under the leadership of President Salva Kiir has accused the United Nations of working for regime change in Juba to overthrow the current government.

The government reacted angrily to a draft proposal seeking approval of the deployment of 4,000 troops with all military capabilities to provide security and protection in Juba and help in the implementation of the peace agreement in the country.

“The UN Secretary General [Ban Ki Moon] has constantly advanced negative views against the Government of the Republic of South Sudan and its leadership, including his recent intrusion in the 27th African Union Summit in Kigali, Rwanda, with the obvious intention of influencing the AU’s decisions in favour of his ‘regime change strategy,” an 8 August response to the UN draft obtained by Sudan Tribune reads in part.

The response signed by the minister of cabinet affairs, Martin Elia Lomuro, and prepared by a committee appointed by President Kiir, demands that “reports on the situation in the Republic of South Sudan be generated and verified by a neutral authority.”

The draft proposal, according to the response, makes the general observation that the draft proposed by the United States on the revised renewal of the mandate of the United Nations in the country is allegedly “intended to undercut the provisions contained in the IGAD Plus Heads of State and Government communiqué of the 5th August 2016, and undermine IGAD as a Regional Authority.”

“United States of America, Draft UNMISS Mandate Renewal ‘seriously undermines the Sovereignty of the Republic of South Sudan as a UN Member State’ and that Transitional Government of National Unity strongly objects to these propositions,” the response added.

The team comprises minister of defence, Kuol Manyang Juuk, minister of national security, Isaac Mabuto Mamur Mate, minister in the office of the president, Mayiik Ayii Deng and minister of petroleum, Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth.

Other members include Ambassador John Andruga, information and broadcasting minister, Michael Makuei Lueth and the minister of cabinet affairs, Martin Elia Lomuro.

UN is expected to deliberate on the draft and pass it on Friday in order to deploy the troops to Juba.

      You guys just need to keep dreaming; the only thing that concern International community is when civilians are being killed; but who are known to be the ones who killed civilians? The rebels; and since the rebels are all being neutralize; you can just be there crying to the UN but the UN isn’t going to do anything. Good luck being traitors to your own country but we will find you one by one.

        Force 1, with heart of slavery, you will go any where. There are countries the so called UN and Western world intervened and you know what happened in those countries (Libya, Iraq, Syria etc) unless your hatred has made you see no evil in them.

        South Sudanese people are ready to defend its territory otherwise those foreign troops must come with their coffins. Ethiopian government try to bring 3000 troops with Riek Machar and they are all finish. Let other countries also send theirs and they will also witness the consequences. If US and its allies when to invaded South Sudan then let them try. South Sudan also had their allies

      Lino;

      Traitors never win anywhere in any country; no matter what they do to sell their own country to the foreign powers. Here is what I know about all the traitors; they ends up dead by hanging with that money in their mouths and get displayed to the public for public shaming! God forbid if you ends up being one of them.

        Ya Force, I don’t have linked with either your Government, opposition, or the UN that your afraid off. The Government including yourself are the one stealing South Sudanese money and now you and opposition want to clinch in power so so your corruption will not be discovered.
        Mubarak of Egypt was refusing to leave power at that time so many officials can not be exposed and so is you now. Killing

            lino we are all against killing of innocent nuer civilians. but nuer civilians too have do their part by exposing Riek militias who shoot SPLA soldiers and run to UN compound. government should take majors to prosecute soldiers that rape Nuer women/girls. they have never participated in any rebellion. therefore should be exempted. if they want to kill, let them deal with american agent(Riek).

      Hahaha! Brother Force, this is only the time limit, the number of force and the plan is the same which to send all these armies IG and IO out of cities.
      Who tell you that UN forces will leave before the situation change to normal. Dinka and Nuer don’t need only 4 months to transform into civilize nation. These 4 months will be 14 months and maybe 14 years!!!

          Hardliner,

          Just chillax (chill ’n relax) man! The nyanjienges are not sexually attractive to seduce UN forces to either rape or consensually go for them. The jienge SPLA men are to ugly and filthy so they use force on our girls. We need to clean our girls from such desecration and dirt cos they have become sharmit-jienge

    UN as become the agent of United states. their regime strategy will never work in south sudan. we found with north for 21 years and are ready to fight groups that ascend to power through force whether by suppport of evil USA. Nuer should back away from american puppet known as Riek. we lost millions of our people through 21 years of war and are ready to take on whoever acquire power through force.

    Hardliner,
    The killings in Juba, Wau, Mundri, Yambio, Loa, Pageri, Morobo, Lanya, Lasu, Malakal, Bentiu, Leer etc are not done by the Americans but by the government. I think it is time for those communities to protect themselves.

      Marie,

      I’ve always said that only when all tribes arm themselves can there be no peace since these jienge scoundrels will terrorize, rape, kill others with impunity. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. It is either them or the rest. No peace, no UN. Just a real showdown.

    Marie,

    Only a fool can talk and think like you. Have you read anywhere where these 4000 troops will be deployed in all those areas where the people are dying? The interest clearly here is Juba and the airport and you won’t believe that.

    Kerem,
    You are the one being naive and act dump as if the rest of us are fools. Compare South Sudan from 2005 to 2011 and from 2011 to now, you would understand where those in position of power have taken the country, down the drain. This is not a government but a group of criminals who have hijacked the country and let lose their militias to reign terror on people disguised as unknown gunmen.
