June 3, 2017 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s First Vice President, Taban Deng Gai has urged the United Nations Security Council to desist from communicating to the country’s armed opposition leader, Riek Machar.

Gai, in a 1 June letter, claimed Machar was using the Security Council of the world body to legitimize the brutal and bloody policy of incitement and tribal agenda to continue waging war.

The policy of incitement, he said, continues to displace ordinary citizens from their areas and prolong the suffering of the people.

"Such brutal and sadistic behaviour of Riek Machar must be condemned in the strongest terms possible. He should have not been allowed to use a noble forum such as the UN Security council to preach his outdated and unfounded claims against the president of the republic of South Sudan and the Transitional Government of national Unity,” partly reads the letter to the Security Council.

It further said the engagement of the U.N Security Council with the South Sudanese rebel leader was an “insult” to the lives of innocent people who are victims of barbaric acts of Machar and his group.

Gai, in his letter, urged the African Union Peace and Security Council and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD)-Plus to desist from engaging with the armed opposition leader.

“He [Machar] is using the blood of Nuer community to attain power and this cannot be tolerated anymore", further reads the letter.

Machar’s engagement with the world leaders, it adds, frustrates efforts aimed at restoring peace and security in the young nation.

Gai, a former rebel chief negotiator, was hastily appointed the country’s First Vice President after Machar was pushed out of Juba in the aftermath of the violence that erupted in Juba in July last year.

    Dr. Machar HAS ALREADY BEEN ISOLATED. Has that stopped the war, incitement and killing along ethnic lines; it will only get worse should combatants deep in the bushes hear that Dr. Machar is officially isolated. Any agrieved South Sudanese has the right to fight for their rights!

      Stupid vulture Taban, what did you use as short cut to the FVP post? Was it not the blood of dear comrades?

      For your information, Dr Machar Teny Dhur-gon is coming back home in the middle of this month. It’s better for you to hang yourself before we come or we hang you. The choice is yours, idiot.

      I am just laughing from this big messes of Riek’s IO. The way they are struggling with very small issues among themselves tells us that a country like South Sudan can not be allowed to be in the hands of these people. Taban has to build his organization a little by little and with the help of government of SS, he will make it out safely.

          jur_likang_a_ likan’g,

          Iam laughing. Don’t you see this as a very funny thing in your life? When personal body guards of Riek ran away from him, what do you think is forcing them out from him? Body guards of any leader are the last people to abandon their leaders. No hope in Reik’s leadership and his body guards are eye witnesses to that.

    Self interest interest at play. Taban Gai in a panic mode as the truth of the causes of mess begins to surface. Where are you implementing your ARCISS? What is the cause of exodus of South Sudanese to neighbouring countries? You have a wrong vision for the country!! You are focused on Nuer - Dinka alliance for control of the country which is an uphill walk for you.

    This accidental president with no constituents is afraid the resolution of the crisis in South Sudan will get him to step aside. What he is doing here is protecting his own personal privileges! Any return of Machar means his political career is dead! Taban you killed your own ambitions! You have achieved nothing and will achieve nothing for South Sudan!
