October 20, 2016 (JUBA) - South Sudan president, Salva Kiir has threatened to personally lead and direct military operations in Equatoria region, particularly in Yei county, vowing to relocate to the area if armed groups continue causing insecurity.

“We will not just sit in Juba. We will go out. I will relocate to go and stay in Yei and all the operations that will go out will go out under my directives and my supervision”, an emotionally Kiir said Tuesday during an occasion marking official reception of the registration of one the factions of the divided Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) under his leadership in government controlled areas.

He said those who have taken up arms in the region to cause havoc were sons of the area; hence the leaders from the region ought to them so that they stop carrying out hostile activities. This message, he said, was delivered by two of his advisors whom had recently dispatched to the area to calm down the situation after reports shows that insecurity has been deteriorating in Central, Western Equatoria state.

“And I said the other time when I sent my advisors to Yei, I told them you go to Yei and tell the people that those who are now disturbing them are their own sons. If they don’t call them back, I will go to Yei myself," he said.

Kiir warned of more violence in the region if targeted killings do not stop.

“These targeted killings, if they are not stopped by the people who are actually engineering them, how long do you think people will remain patient?” stressed Kiir.

He added, "There is a need to urgently return peace to the country".

Observers have expressed concern that such remarks may be interpreted by members of the victims in the army predominantly his ethnic Dinka to mean a directive to carry out military operations in the Equatoria, which if not properly commanded and guided, may affect innocent civilians as a punishment for not cooperating with the army in identifying and exposing armed dissident youth in the region.

        Hardlinner,

        How do you separate a tribal civilian who carries arms to kill and tribal militia who bears gun to kill too? The answer is being given in the jungles of freedom fighters. After all they are not doing so in Bor, Gogrial , Rumbek or Aweil. They are doing so on llands of their great grand parents. The spirits of their ancestors are with them. Dinkas graveyards is Equatoria.

    This seems to be a clear threat by the millionaire war criminal, Salva Kiir , to carry out penal atrocities against civilian populations.

    As the person responsible for starting the violence in December 2013 and July of this year, Kiir must take the blame for destabilising the country.

        Equatorians must not be bothered by such empty jienge bullshit unless of course they have 3 testicles as the rest. All Equatorians still remaining in the SPLA should rebel or make urban frontlines and go for war. The jienges are cowards except that they are using state resources to terrorize the rest and pretend that they are brave fighters.

        Does Kiir really care for jienges killed on the roads if he can’t care for those jienges in Warrap who starve to death? No, he feels he is"jienge ta Yei" and has a very large piece of land given to him by Gov. Lokonga. Now the rightful owners want it back and so Kiir is scared stiff cos he can’t go back to Warrap.

          Kiir and the jienges are being hunted down in Equatoria like bush rats. As a show of strength Kiir must prove to his jienges that he is tough and can protect them. Bullshit jienges kill themselves everyday did he care? No. So he won’t care at all. Equatorians must continue to hunt them down until they quit. Simple.

For too long equatorians have been insulted, oppressed, marginalised, their lands taken, their women raped and their young men arrested and killed! How long does he think we shall continue tolerating his failures? People lost trust in his ability to lead and he has lost legitimacy!

      You need to differentiate politics and tribes, President Kiir is not there for Dinka and he is not representing Dinka in his gov’t. If you don’t want him, just vote him out and that is what we call democracy. You are killing innocent civilians who don’t have connection with Kiir gov’t. Why don’t you killed wani Igga Tribe, Lomoro Tribe, Mamur Tribe if you are against Kiir gov’t.

They add no human values to Equatorian, they are not intelligent enough e.g. No Engineers, doctors, technicians or farmers at least to get food from. They are parasites that live on others only waiting for what is ready. Kick them out period.

    I don’t have a logical doubt if president Kiir can go to Yei by road or by air -he is a soldier, but I have serious doubt if he can bring peace to Yei for citizens to love one another-. This is because he is ever copying Omar Bashir’s style - using the hammer (Military) and money (positions) to solve political problems which always backfire on him.
