Speaking during a visit to Yei River state on Sunday, Gai said regional countries denied Machar safe entry into their territories and would be locked out for a foreseeable future.

“Riek Machar has been parked [in South Africa] like a car without wheels,” Gai told a crowd gathered in Yei town.

“Time for conflict in South Sudan had ended. Time for conflict in the region has ended in all regions,” he told the Juba Monitor newspaper adding, “This is time for peace”.

This was the First Vice-President’s first visit to Yei River state since his controversial appointment to replace Machar.

“This year, for the sake of peace, [we] should talk to our relatives to join peace. Let them [rebels] know what happened to Riek Machar. Now Riek Machar is a trouble maker and he has been parked in South Africa. They will be parked like Machar,” said Gai.

“Riek Machar will not be seen again. He would be seen again in elections if there is peace. If there is no peace, Riek Machar will not be seen again,” he added.

Meanwhile, Agel Machar, a youthful member of armed opposition faction said Gai’s peaceful approach to the South Sudanese ongoing conflict would work.

“I believe in the leadership of Gen Taban Deng Gai, because he is working for peace, not war. My leaders in the IO-Riek are for war, which I protest,” Agel told The Dawn newspaper in an interview published on Tuesday.

Agel, who hails from Bahr el-Ghazal region, initially backed the Machar-led rebel faction.

    Taban Gai
    Is a parasite that feeds at the expense of others. He is a pathetic bootlicker that has bent so low to lick 👅 the sole of Kiir’s shoes. Had Riak not lifted him from nothingness, he as a jellaba bastard would be diligently selling charcoal in his father’s zeriba in Gezira. Sad that sons of dogs and monkeys are screwing us up.

      Jubaone, if I were Dr. rick, I would have immediate Denounce violence and united the country, that will be smart way and that may change those people who were never supported him. War is not a solution to this conflict of ss and I said it many time. I like word democracy but not military mean. Dr. Rick need to come back and start mobilizing people for up coming election in 2018.

        Gatluak jal,
        Riak is not for war but is acting in self defence. Did he attack Kiir in Jienge 1 (JI) in July 2016? No. Did he use heli gunships? No. Kiir must denounce war and step down cos he has become useless, old and drunken. He and Taban Gai are semi-illiterate and as fools fear educated Dr. Riak Machar. Intellectuals like Riak reason, fools like Kiir and Gai fight.

      Jubaone,

      You better advise your boss Riek Machar to denounce violence and join the path of peace like Taban Deng and President kiir otherwise his move to war will not help him to achieved what he want. South Sudanese are supporting President Kiir and FVP Taban Deng to implement peace agreement in good spirit.

        Akuma,
        You can stop war, but you can´t stop anyone defending himself. Riak and the IO are simply telling Kiir and his bootlicker Taban that if you slap, you get one in return. Simple rule.

    Like Taban said, a political vehicles don’t always have silver rim and fire proof wheels otherwise you end up parked like a car with out wheels.
    Unfortunately Riek drove the vehicle like a family enterprise forgetting the existence of landmines and grenades on the way now he is parked . Next Chapter Please!

    Like the Bible say "Master is never welcome in his own town" that is what’s happening right now to Taban Dengai a leader who has a compassion for his people. Riek is now enjoying living in a luxury hotel in South Africa while the dump ones continue accomplish his orders. TBH, there is no country in this world that can be liberated with a movement leader in exile

      Uncle J, if at all no country every liberated without its leader with the army and if at all Dr Machar is stationed in South Africa, then this time it going to happen. This will be a proof that Dr Machar is not the one with war agenda but president Kir, JCE and their boy Taban deny. Look how SS is violently it is in absent of Dr Machar. Why Gen Gatdet, Gathoth, Tanggenya left SPLAIO? Any idea?

    One question, why so-called FVP Taban Deng Gai did leave hotel for more than five months when he was appointed as FVP? and SPLM /A Crowd hotel they don’t have house?
    why FVP live in hotel in his own country , may you ask yourself if you are STD supporters?

      Nelson Mandela denounced violence in his country and called for peaceful change. Nelson Mandela did not run to the bush and started war. Nelson Mandela was not sent out from his country and parked like a car without wheels.

    Taban Deng is a fool, instead of him stepping down he is telling Dr. Riek to denounce violence, every one will believe me peace will never come to RSS if he and Kiir fail to respect and give back the will of the people of SS. no one was opting for war that was why peace was signed and IO came only with 1,200 troop , but of now STD is Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus and has betrayed our peace

    How you would feels when your long time trusted friend turned out to be someone that was not there for the same concepts?

    I think Mr. Machar still need help from Salva Kiir and Tabaan Deng, just to remind him Tut-dhol, about what’s calls asylum.

    “Riek Machar has been parked [in South Africa] like a car without wheels’
    Then what will happen next for Mr. Machar in South African parking lot?

      Lou Nuer the Loser,

      If that’s how you feels, then hang yourself! There’s nothing like that in our world today. Mr.Machar Will tell his bullure,
      the birds that he feed with innocent blood every single day. You have a great choice now, if you’re anti peace, go to South African parking lot and impound Dhuor-gon. He’s done for the year! Happy New year 2017!

    This Taban guy should know it is not all about snatching Riek’s position and telling him to denounce violence. It is all about principles, reformations. It is about the truth, development and service and sense of ownership of citizenry, democracy. It is all about the people. The people have risen against the evil leadership that has brought suffering, shame upon us. They must go.

    El Tabani and Kiir supported by lying to the world that Dr Machar’s replacement was in sync with the letter and spirit of the ARCISS. Now that, according to El Tabani, Machar’s tyres have been removed and he’s parked in South Africa, we shouldn’t see armed clashes anywhere in South Sudan associated with SPLA-IO. Brig. John Sunday Martin, what do you say?????
