The group’s leader in Egypt, Makeuy Nyang confirmed the move.

“We affirm our support and fully stand with the new leader of the people under the wise leadership of General Taban Deng Gai in the peace process,” said Nyang.

“We declare our support for a just peace that achieves the aspiration our people,” he stressed.

Gai was elected South Sudan’s acting First Vice President in July, days after SPLM-IO chairman, Riek Machar fled the capital, Juba.

Machar described Gai’s appointment as illegal and accused the latter of trying to defect to the ruling party (SPLM) led by President Salva Kiir.

      Ayuiu Lam,

      These is a bogus group that has not been heard of at all. They are simply SPLM-IG mostly unemployed youth in Cairo disguised as SPLM-IO to give the impression, that the SPLM-IO is now disintergrating. Where have they been all this time, only to surface now? common!

          Khotoo,

          I see your point and that of the Minister. A few Nuer (nyagateen) can not be used to blame all Nuers just as a few Equatorians (nyam nyam bastards) can not be used to drag all into shit. The Minister must understand that he has to stand for and follow an idea not behind someone. As I say " better die for an idea that will live, than to live for an idea that will die". Forget the nyagateen

      What support do you think the 30 bribed men will do to the government? I never seen a government bribing his own people, Taban’s meeting in the US was not attended by those who know that he is illegitimate FVP of South Sudan. War will stop until the head Kiir Kuethping is brought to the Mighty General Gatwech Dual.
