May 18, 2017 (JUBA) –President Salva Kiir said that "evil forces" were trying to destroy the country so that they can rewrite the history of the country by driving a wedge among the citizens.

President Kiir spoke on Thursday at the 34th anniversary of the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Army (SPLA) which was attended by senior military officers and high-level government officials. Last week’s celebrations were postponed on the recommendation of the security situation.

“Obviously, in the last three years we have seen how the forces of evil have tried to bring our country down, they are bent on trying to rewrite history and drive the wedge among our people. They have gone as far as portraying our historical army as an ethnic army,” said the President.

Kiir went on to point out how the South Sudanese military has been compromised from different ethnic groups in the country and called to keep its diversity.

“We should not allow our own hands to destroy the most precious gains we have made since we took arms in 1983,” he said.

Regarding, the national dialogue, Kiir downplayed the criticisms of the delay of launching the political process which has been announced since last December. He announced that the initiative would kick off next week Monday.

“I wanted to inform you that we had been talking about this national dialogue, and this national dialogue has raised so many questions especially those who pretend to be friends to SPLM or friends of South Sudan when they are actually enemies trying to destroy South Sudan," he said.

"On Monday, 21 of this month, the general secretariat of the national dialogue will be sworn in so that they can start to operationalise the national dialogue,” President Kiir further said.

    You are the evils forces; you played the tribal card to protect your seat and the hoarded wealth. Stop pouring sand in the gear box of the rusty engine driving South Sudan out of poverty, illiteracy.
    I am asking you to allow National Dialogue but not per your terms and conditions. We are all brothers, we fight, and we can reconcile, just allow us to come and express ourselves for a better tomorrow

          You are coward, a big coward. Where is your white army? Kiir did destroy them. Where is your wicked Riek Machar? Kiir did park him in South Sudan. How many factions Nuer tribe has? More than 5 factions. Wicked and stupid. Stay with computer board.

        Oh hell! there’s no problem at all in SS, someone’s trying to destroy our country and we wonder why close to 15% of entire population of SS are running away, have no food, their women gang raped, starve, children don’t go to schools. These must be "evil forces" from Mars or outer space 🚀. We can’t see them, but they are there. No problem all is fine. Koror!Jienge joman!

          All Revolutionaries,
          Destruction of this "Jienge Republic" is all concerned SS must strive and the establishment of a "2nd Republic" that is for all SS. The JR is satanic, barbaric and ungodly and is worthless. It’s full of fornicators, thugs and illiterate bastards that have defaced our dignity and defeated common sense. May their offspring be cursed and remain evil 4 rest of their lives: drunkar

              Since when did naked savages and bushniggas begin to call their Equatorian teachers and masters monkeys? Oh! that is new. I even didn’t think jienges were humans. Do they have brains at all? Is the jienge not that 4-legged creature transitioning to being human? Jienges are worthless without us Equatorians. Period! They need us more than we need them. For what actually, such apes?

              Yes, this is Jienge Republic and the real 2nd Republic of SS will come. Whether jienges will unite after reading this is less important. I don’t give a shit 💩 to them. We Equatorians don’t need jienges. They are simply a human burden and waste of space, energy and resources. We rather rear pigs from which we can get meat than have jienge savages who rape, kill, steal and are devils.

                Jubaone, you should go back to Congo, surrender to jienge rules or just dead trying overthrowing jienge government vernment. Just choose reconciliation then fighting since you will not win. I oppose president kiir, but I don’t want senseless war in south Sudan.

          Mr. Jubaone, you fellows were honestly warned not to join the Riek Machar & some of his clueless Nuers aimless armed rebellion, when the rebellion was only in the former greater Upper Nile. Because an aimless armed rebellion would bring war to your states & communities, but you fellows refused to heed the warning & let your balls carried you away>>>

            some of your hooligan from central Equatoria joined Riek Machar last year in lieu of being rewarded with higher military ranks. And then started calling the Dinkas/Jiengs names like MTNs, land grabbers, uncivilized, uneducated, cattle urine drinkers, naked people etc. Some of these Equatorian hooligans even ambushed the innocents Dinkas/Jiengs travelers & killed them>>>

              But when the government of South Sudan send the army to find those hooligans who ambushed the innocent road users, then the criminals ran to Uganda, went and lie through their teeth that they are being raped, ethnically targeted or murdered by the tribal Dinkas/Jiengs government’s militias, can you believe this? We know, some of these Equatorians who ran to Uganda just want to go & be resettled>>>

                in Europe or America that is all. No one raping them, targeting them or murdering them simply because they are Equatorians. That is an absolute lie. The same goes to Nuers. Why are the Nuers still in the Dinkas/Jiengs areas if at all the Dinkas/Jiengs are killing them? Fellows, some our people just need to grow up. Some idiots have use the Dinkas/Jiengs name as their ’marisa drinking’ name>>

                    Thanks you so much for clarification, be their lecturer on the social media always so that they understand what’s the problem of South Sudan. DINKA is not the problem but those who took arms and killed innocence people along the main roads are the problem.

I like it cos it shows the jienge in his nature simply follows without question. How can he even dare question, when he can’t even think? Uh! Was it not us Jubans/Equatorians who taught them to wear underpants? What can the jienge do 4 himself?

        The Presidenr should be aware of those "evil forces" that tried to destroy peace and security when they carried out a massacre of civilians in Juba in December 2013.

        The President should be aware of those "evil forces" that plotted a surprise attack on Kiir’s own deputy in Juba to destroy the transitional peace agreement.

        Why do bad things happen and Kiir’s is not responsible?

          Mr. Point,
          The Bible tells us how often Jesus warns us from evil, Satan the evil doesn’t see anything fault about that. The Kiirminal doesn’t see anything bad cos he himself is bad and evil. He and his friends have secured their kids to safe places and our kids have to suffer. May the blood of our people curse him and his children. May they become useless like ashes and spoil.

        South south.
        The President is doing everything he possibly can to protect the country from traitors.
        He spends the countries wealth on arms instead of health and education. He stops aid reaching areas of starvation.
        He sends troops to commit crimes against civilian populations.
        And traitors keep appearing where there in insecurity and starvation.

          Traitors are cowards, they hit and run to hide. They are causing problems to their own communities first before other communities. It is a duty of our president to protect our country from them, by the way, Iam against any killing of innocent people.
