December 13, 2017 (JUBA) - A member of the Jieng (Dinka) Council of elders has denied his group had played any negative role to cause the conflict, accusing the different factions of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) of having caused the civil war that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions since December 2013.

Aldo Ajou Deng Akuey, also a key member of the country’s national dialogue, insists his group only supported South Sudan President Salva Kiir because he was elected into office and not because they had in anyway played a role that caused the war.

“In a nutshell, the warring parties are the SPLM and its rebellious factions: SPLM IO, SPLM FDs, and SPLM DC. But, as disinformation is a twin of thuggery, they and a mysterious group of neo-communist are out to mislead South Sudan and the world. They are determined to find an exit out of the crisis they created and participated”, wrote Akuey.

“We hereby adhere to a credible and factual debate in this particular crisis in order to record the history of South Sudan correctly. We support the SPLM and its Chairman Salva Kiir because their power came through the ballot paper and not through force of arms, violence or political anarchy. Less we support violence as a means to political power. That’s why we are in the world media as advocates of freedom and democracy. Through democracy, peace, security, good governance, and inclusive infrastructural development can be sustained”, he added.

Akuey, who is a member of the council of states and the chairperson of the specialized committee responsible for human rights and constitutional affairs, said factions of the country’s ruling party needed to be pressured to come together in order to end the war which they have caused.

The official was reacting to reports that often portrays the elders’ body as major obstacles to efforts aimed at restoring peace and stability in the war-torn nation.

Last month, the country’s rival factions signed a unification agreement to rebuild trust and confidence among them. The deal, dubbed the “Declaration of Unification”, was signed in Cairo, Egypt under the auspices of the Egyptian President Abdel-Fatah al-Sisi and his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni Kaguta.

The SPLM factions also agreed that the Egyptian general intelligence service would coordinate with the parties and follow up on the implementation of the signed deal.

The Cairo Declaration, which contained names of Pagan Amum, a former political detainee and South Sudan’s defence minister, Kuol Manyang, is expected to speed up implementation of the 2015 Arusha accord, signed nearly three years ago.

In January 2015, delegates from three factions of the SPLM party signed a 12-page agreement in Arusha, Tanzania, laying out key steps toward reunifying the party. Those who signed include the party loyal to President Salva Kiir, the SPLM-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO), led by former vice president Riek Machar, and a third made up of party officials who were detained when the conflict began in December 2013.

    Now is the time to adduce evidence. The meddling by the JCE to rally the entire Dinka nation and other non-Dinka people to OPPOSE MACHAR’’S possible ascent to power. The negative campaign by JCE has brought the country this far.....

        Ayuiu,
        After the demise of Garang, Bashir ensured that all NCP moles and SPLM converts subvert and destroy the real SPLM from within. Gatluak Kew, Aldo Ajo, Bishop Roric, Dr. Dhieu Mathok, Angelo Beda, Clement Wani Konga, Ismail Konyi et al all got into the party to undermine it. Aldo was a dep. parliament speaker for NCP, so what exoneration?

          I fully agree with you Mr. Jubaone for saying the truth. Though not all the intruders had the same intentions and objectives to join and destroy the peoples` SPLM party from within, it is true that their intrusion is responsible for the falling out of the party historical and senior members. I believe Kiir Mayardit as a person had no personal problem with his own senior party members.

                  Stupid, this country was liberated by fighters, not through university degrees. Shimon Peres, late prime minister of Israel never had college education, but he rules Israel. John Major, former British prime minister, have no college education. Jacob Zuma, current president of South Africa has no university education, but he fought for his country. Shut up loser.

            Can you tell the date you overthrow Omar Albashir on power? I thought we got our independence through Nabasha 2005 peace agreement. Dinka never tell true history actually. I have seen them threatening other tribe that we liberated this country as if they got power through barrel of gun. In 2005 all major towns were under control of Jalaba i don’t know which major town they liberated!

              1- In Eqautoria, only Juba was left liberated. Of course we were betrayed by stupid Equatoria militias who teamed up with fake Arabs, that why we lost Torit.
              2- Bhar Gazal: Only Aweil was not liberated.
              3- Upper Nile: Only Malakal, Renk, Bentu were not liberated. Of course Nuers food lover betrayed us and teamed up with Fake Arabs. Shut up loser

                    the question was very simple, you always threaten non Dinka that you liberated this country than what was the major town you Liberated rather than busy looting civilian resources in rural areas. go to Jikany areas and check by yourself how many dinka were converted to Nuer just for lack of food! When Equatorian depend their resources from evaders dinka you call it Kokora bla bla etc

    You frankly indicate that you help Kiir because he was elected by People. If you know he was elected by people than why didn’t you advice him to go SPLM convention with dr.Riak? Why do you advice him to Kill Dr.Riak and all his opponents? You can not run a way from what you started? Now let Kiir and Dr.Riak be a side a wait for election and let technocrat lead our us.

      Sunday,
      You sound ignorant or stupid altogether. A President in every country is advice, approach or ask for a favor by any citizen and South Sudan president is not different. If he chose to listen advice of Dinka council, Dinka council is not responsible for decision of the nation’s president, simple and logic.

    The time for truth has come as Jesus has said to one of his disciples that,1 of you will deny me 3 times when the cock crow. The so called Jieng Council of elders has disgraced Dinka tribe. And i believe they will stand before Court of Law for response. their denial after National dialogue when Aweil rejected tribalism.
