August 24, 2016 (JUBA) – A group of armed and unarmed political parties opposed to South Sudan President Salva Kiir’s government have resolved to overthrow what they described as the "totalitarian regime” along with supporters, mainly from the Dinka tribe.

The resolution emerged at the end of a consultative meeting attended by former agriculture minister, Lam Akol and ex-education minister Peter Adwok Nyaba in Nairobi from 18-20 August on the theme “Towards National Democratic Revolution.”

“The political situation in South Sudan underlying the current civil war is a contradiction, as well as a struggle, between narrow ethnic sectarianism represented by President Salva Kiir and Jieng [Dinka] Council of Elders (JCE) on the one hand and South Sudan nationalism on the other hand,” partly reads a seven-page dossier from the group.

“The parties to the Consultative Meeting have to cooperate and coordinate efforts in all spheres of the struggle to overthrow the totalitarian regime in Juba,” it added.

While, Nyaba represented the armed opposition faction (SPLM-IO) loyal to former first vice president Riek Machar, Akol represented National Democratic Movement (NDM) which he formed after resigning from non-violent Democratic Change party last month.

The other politicians who attended the meeting were Clement Juma Mbugoniwia from the People’s Revolutionary Movement/Army (PRM/A), Juma Zackaria Deng of Western Bahr El Ghazal Group (WBG Group), Fr Joseph Otto (Eeastern Equatoria Group), Justin Joseph Marona, Pasquale Clement Batali and Dominic Akwai Henry Bahgo.

Describing the meeting’s resolution as a “blueprint” towards removing “totalitarian regime in Juba,” the politicians insisted that the peace agreement signed by President Kiir and the armed opposition leader in August last year should remain on course.

“We insist that the resuscitation of ARCISS [Agreement for the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan] must be contingent on […] the Regional Protection Force under the banner of the UN should be deployed to take charge of the security all over South Sudan to create an environment conducive for free political discourse on the future of the country,” further noted the document.

They group appealed to the people of South Sudan to join them in liberating the country.

“We appeal to our people to lend it their full support and call upon the other political organizations and groups that could not take part in this dialogue to join us in future discussions. We must unify our ranks to save our country from imminent collapse,” stressed the group’s paper.

In the document, however, the opposition parties outlined the major economic, political and social reforms that will be taken once President Kiir’s government was overthrown.

It still remains unclear as to how the opposition politicians intend to achieve these goals

    May I ask you some questions, what is your vision, mission and goal for these parties? Did you work for the government for the last 12 years and you took all public money to enrich yourself. Where are your soldiers to fight your greedy war? Your nothing than bunch of thieves and power greedy like Machar. Please stay away from Juba. We, the people of South Sudan don’t want you in South Sudan.

      Well, and what has been achieved for South Sudan by dictator Kiir dishonestly signing a comprehensive peace agreement he meant to dishonour? Do the people off South Sudan really want all freedom taken away by this power hungry incompetent. Where is the economy now? What happened to the oil wealth? Why is the country in debt? Why so much crime in Juba committed by men in uniform?

      Dinka General,

      No one made you a spokesman for South Sudanese and dont even start talking about Juba. First, it is you who should stay away from Juba. You belong to Warrap, Aweil or Ramciel. You like Juba cos you can get free looted food, drinks and socialize freely, things you dont have in your luaks. Just one thing, all MTNs are free targets till all are driven out of Equatoria. Eye for an eye

        Jubaone! When did we leave our Luek to come and stay in Juba? First we came during the war of liberation to capture the towns you hopeless idiots left to Jaballaba. Secondly, CPA made Juba the seat of the GOSS. We would be happy to go back to Ramchiel but I bet, your pathetic, criminals would cry to and beg us to return to Juba so that you benefit from our presence. You know that right?

You know that right? Don’t start something that you are not going to manage. Just accept that a tribe can’t be eliminated. The Dinka have not realized that the Equatorians are thinking like that

What makes you not believe, that it is a question of time: Even the pharaohs, Romans, greeks, Sadam Hussin, Mubarak, gadafi, Mobutu et. all perished. We dont give a shit for jienges.

When all jienges had either run to Kakuma, Khartoum elsewhere, the hardest battles were fought in Equatorias. There was nothing, again nothing to fight for in jienge heartlands. Take all the liberation battles till 1997, jienge cmdrs only came to Claim that they did the fighting...

So you want a showdown, we´re ready. And I swear, we shall hunt any MTNs outside Juba/ in Equatoria without mercy. God forbid, if you cross my/our path. You want it, you get it!

              While I wouldn’t deny the genuine contribution of some brave Equatoria soldiers during the struggle, I would not agree with your assertion that they did they fighting alone. I was trying to make you understand that this is how the Dinka came to Equatoria land and not for food as you claim. As for your plan to eradicate your land of the Dinka, you are free to do but don’t run away sometimes later.

                In 2007-2009, over 10,000 mostly Equatorians after successfully liberating Junub from Kaya upto 45 miles near Juba in Bungu were deliberately demobilized by Salva Mathok, who was Dep.Chief of Staff for Finance/admin. at Bilpham and replaced by fugitives and street urchins from Khartoum as SPLA fighters with diverse ranks. How could late comers and parasites now claim they fought alone?

                  Jubaone! in the year 2007-2009, there was no more fighting in Southern Sudan apart from pockets of rebellion. CPA was signed in 2005. And so, which fighting are you talking about here? It shows that you are indeed a foreigner and knows nothing what was going in this country. Just continue feeding white man’s dog wherever you are and don’t get involved in our affairs.

                    Like I said, and I repeat myself, nobody denies the contribution of every tribe in South Sudan during the liberation struggle. The magnitude may differ but all equally contributed in their small ways. Having said that, there is nowhere you are going to send away or scare the Dinka off this country. Accept them and cooperate with them for things to move or else remain in diaspora.

                    War had stopped and between 2007-2009, the process of demilitarization and demobilization started around Lainya/Juba counties This was the greatest frontline to Juba. Most combatants were made redundand, other transfered to military training in Mapel. So again, lie to someone who does not know these events. You saw the frontline about 12km on the Yei-Kaya road after Yei´s capture in 1996?

The issue here not about Dinka/jieng vs 63 tribes bit it about the incompetency of the government itself. Try to argues your with logic. Off course most the fights were concentrated in Great Equoria regions, but doesn’t mean it was fought by Equotarins by themselves, I am war veteran, Kapeota/Yei

          Wacjak, I think you didn’t study this guy or woman called jubaone, he is drunk. To prove my point. There was no war anywhere in South Sudan between 2005-2009. Jubaone also likes to draw attention because he is a lonely in the cafe shop. Furthermore, it was only president’s bodyguards who fought with 1,000 Machar’s bodyguards. May I ask, where are they 1,000 call strong soldiers in Juba.

            Jubaone! in 2005, Juba was a slum. Which houses did you have until the advent of the Dinka. Juba improved a hundred times due to our presence. Do you have such buildings in Kajokeji, Lanya or Pageri? As for food you are talking about, do Equatorians feed the Dinka while in Juba? On the contrary, it is the Dinka that help your people. Accept facts rather than fighting aimless war.

    This is the beginning of political resistance against dictatorship in Juba. The sooner this resistance converts into military resistance the quicker those tormenting South Sudanese would quit Juba.

      Death in South Sudan is our daily life. It is not new. Better to die for an idea that will live than to live for an die that will die. Mark my words. The jienges have a right to behave that way, and we the rest have a right to react that way. The winner takes it all. Period
