July 28, 2017 (ADDIS ABABA) - The SPLM/SPLA-IO Coordination Office in Ethiopia Under the Leadership of Gen.Taban Deng Gai, First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan, on Friday called up on all the Peace loving citizens of Maiwut State in Ethiopia and across the region to return to the State and support the peace and development of the state.

David Dang Kong Head of the SPLM/SPLA-IO Coordination Office for Peace and Reconciliation to Ethiopia and the African Union said "Maiwut State is a land of opportunities and we should utilize these opportunities for the benefit of our State and its citizens”

“Let’s forgive each other, open a new page of reconciliation among ourselves and work hard for the betterment of our people and our country. An eye for eye and tooth for a tooth would not take us anywhere” added David.

The calls come one day after the South Sudanese army (SPLA) took control of Maiwut town, the Maiwut state administrative headquarters, after days of fighting with rebel forces.

Sources on Thursday told Sudan Tribune that forces loyal to First-Vice President, Taban Deng Gai entered the area around 10 am without facing any resistance.

“The SPLM/SPLA-IO Coordination Office for Peace and Reconciliation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, would like to take this opportunity to congratulate H. E. Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the Republic of South Sudan, H. E. Gen. Taban Deng Gai, First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan, Hon. Minister Ambassador Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, Minister of Petroleum, Maj. Gen. Bol Ruach Rom, Governor of Maiwut State, Gen. Nhial Batoang, SPLA Division 6 Commander, and all the people of Maiwut State for the Peace victory yesterday,” said David.

However, the SPLA-IO led by Riek Machar denied the claim in a telephone contact with the rebel commanders in the area.

He added the capture of Maiwut by their forces has proven to the maximum that H.E Gen. Taban Deng Gai, First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan, Ambassador Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, Minister of Petroleum, and the entire SPLM/SPLA-IO leadership are working extremely hard, days and nights, to bring the lasting peace in our beloved country.

South Sudan was plunged into conflict in December 2013 after president Kiir accused his former deputy turned Rebel leader, Riek Machar of plotting coup, an allegation the latter denies.

The fighting, which turned ethnic lines killed tens of thousands and displaced millions.

      Quiz,
      Thank you. Taban and the kiirminal may control the whole SS, but they can’t bring the badly needed peace. Jienges are not productive even as they live in relative peace, how can they convince us that they are capable of bringing development? Losers!
