February 12, 2017 (JUBA)- South Sudan President Salva Kiir on Sunday dismissed charges that he and the SPLA chief of General Staff Paul Malong Awan have turned the national army into a tribal institution.

“There are people when they are with the government and in the army, appreciate the work of the SPLA but when they go, they say it is a tribal army. When has SPLA become my army and when it has become a tribal army,” asked president in a meeting on Sunday.

The president made the remarks on Sunday at his residence in which he met and held a usual informal meeting with some prominent members of the Jieng (Dinka) Council of Elders.

A deputy chief of South Sudan army, General Thomas Cirilo, on Friday 10 February resigned from the army and accused President Salva Kiir and military leadership of spearheading a tribal agenda.

Cirilo further accused the He the duo (Kiir and Awan) of "deliberately orchestrated planned violations" of the August 2015 peace agreement" which led to fighting in Juba in July last year. He also accused them of targeting non-Dinka tribes, pointing to the ongoing violence in the Equatoria and Upper Nile regions.

The head of state attributed the dominance of his ethnic group to lack of people wanting to join military, citing the 2012 national mobilization when the army wanted recruits.

“When people are not ready to join the army and others accepted to volunteer, is it me or the chief of general staff who stopped them from joining”, asked Kiir. “If some people want to go, they are free to go but they should not make claims which are not true”.

Kiir said he was not surprised about people leaving the SPLA (Sudan People’s Liberation Army) because it was allegedly not the first time it was being left. “How many times have people left the SPLA and did the same people not come back,” asked president?

    Don’t worry Mr. President Salva Kiir! We’re behind You, you made a true point that the recruitment process and mobilization or transcript is a collectively responsibility of the civil populations in which inhabited the country, but if some folks turns down the call and later on trying make it a pure lie saying that the army is dominated by one tribe. That doesn’t concern is at all! The recruitment

        What exactly have you fixed? Your leaders virtually broke everything don’t tell us that there is no division among the Jeing. The decent Jieng of Bor are against the way Kiir and Malong are damaging their image. Instead of hating the people of Aweil and Warrap, the 63 tribes have resorted to hating any Dinka. SPLA army has no Dinka Bor there are just few handfuls why is this so?

      Since this is an isolated case, appoint another General to replace him and move forward with the National Dialogue. The time for senseless bloodshed for positions is almost over unless the enemies of peace force SPLA to meet in the war theater again and see who’s going to win. Of course, it’s not the first time for Generals to defect back & forth.

        The very SPLA that has fought vigorously for the freedom of marginalized masses is still prevailing and protecting the citizens of the Republic of South Sudan. Generals come and go but SPLA remains even stronger than before because resignation or defection of Generals from SPLA is self-screening process of identifying the true Generals and patriotism.

          When SPLA started in 1983 every individuals from every ethnic group joined the popular movement voluntarily, not democratically formed as criticized by the enemies of peace. Was Nasir Faction democratic? No. Why did it fail to achieve its perceived democratic institutionalization. Did the current IO-Riek Machar & Lam Akol achieve that? No. Why? Because of their poor political record.

              What I essentially know is that they’ve more ignorant Internet supporters than supporters on the ground who have no single room for making military or political progress. That’s why they resorted to creating their website to inform the world that they are more democratic than SPLM/A. The question is "Does their movement include all the 64 tribes on equal basis that SPLM/A has already achieved? No.

                If your argument about the non-inclusivity of jienge in the other tribal opposition forces: Agwelek, Cobra, White Army etc. is to justify jienge dominance of the SPLA, then one thing is clear, each tribe must form it´s own armies and defend their territory. The SS must be destroyed and each ethnicities take care of itself and so MUST Equatoria do so, period!

                  Jubaone! If the SPLA is tribally oriented, how did Gen. Swaka rise to the highest rank and position? How about the others? South Sudan can never be destroyed as long as it is in the hands of Jieeng people. Why are you now saying each ethnicity must form its own army and all along you have been claiming to have one in Equatoria? Are you defending which territory from who? Just stay in the camp.

                    Well, if the SPLA is a jienge army, the Murles have the Cobra, the Nuer the White Army or whatever, it is natural that the Equatorians forms theirs too. Call it the Equatoria Corps (EC) or Equatoria Defence League (EDL) that will defend the interests of Equatorians. Afterall, jienges just as the rest can also fight. Note, jienges cant freely move around anymore in Equatoria..

                        Equatoria is a nation by itself and NOT a tribe. Many tribes in Equatoria have coexisted and lived very peacefully with each other until the coming of "these things" from BHG or Upper Nile. Equatoria CAN and WILL live without the rest that´s for sure. It does NOT Need any of them at all to survive. The only solution is KOKORA and Kiir+jienges must be thrown out period!

This is not a National army, a national army doesn’t go from house to house pulling out innocent Nuer civilians and planting bullets in their heads. Now is their reality check they are dying and Malong has resorted to recruiting child soldiers of 13 - 14 years.

      Whether the SPLA is a jienge based army is completely irrelevant. What other SS people need is forming tribal based armies as well. When all are armed and ready to defend their territories without being bullied around, then real business will start. Gen. Cirillo and other Equatorians MUST move on to form their own. No Need to lament. Jienges can fight so do the rest.

    You are right, James Hoth Mai, was not invited to attend the first batch 3,000 Anyoors trained in Luri in early, 2013 and absorbed into China. SPLA GHQs does not control Anyoors and Kiir’s Tiger. These will be future rebels once Kiir is ejected. Their weapons are procured fraudulently through Presidency but Kiir and Malong will pay for this. Including a possibility of being buried outside.

      1-Close to 4,000 MAs have had Chinese military training since 2012-15 in Luri/Juba
      2. Arms have been provided by both Russian and Chinese communists through SS Embassy in Russia. Amb. Telar Ring has been very influential.
      3. Egypt and now Morocco want to expand arabism and islamism and at worst anarchy in SS and the JEC has acted as a lobbying body.

        6. Close to 350 MAs have been sent to China between 2013-2015 for professional military Training.
        7. All helicopter gunships are piloted and technically manned by East Europeans (former communists) from Ukraine, Bulgaria.

    Fuck you. The difficult thing is killing your fellow innocent South Sudanese, on their ethnicity. Dinka civilians are innocent but Army Generals who died in ambushed are brushed as professors. Take recent Pope Ajith Akuei, who met his hell along Nimule -Juba road, stupid Jienges claimed him a professor to justify targeting innocent civilians but he deserved this since he is a General.

      Now you’re acting like a young pussy that is about to get fuck,fuck you too dummy. I believe you’re a village man and I believe that your forehead is full of line, that is why you don’t know anything about peace and that’s why you don’t know how to think right, because when you want to think right, your brain gets hurts, line head pong

          Mr John,
          You have no right to decide anyone’s fate here in the country, you may do for your cattle in the cattle camp. every south Sudan has equal right in the affair of the land regardless of their background.

    I have understand now South Sudan is going to be peaceful, nothing bat than truest somebody and at the same time working against you, stabbing at the back, or what we call enemy within, Generals resigning and others quitting will give chance to others who have will and ready to work hard to bring real peace to South Sudan not fake peace, Peace that people can appreciate themselves, not cursing

    With what SPLA has been turned into, Our hero Dr. Garang must be regretting why he handed over this liberation tool(SPLA) to those Garbage in and garbage out. SPLA does all the opposite of what professional army in other parts of the world does. For South Sudan to be free, SPLA must be dissolved.
