January 16, 2018 (JUBA)- The SPLM Former Detainees (FDs) group Tuesday has condemned the visit of the First Vice President Taban Deng Gai to Jonglei, accusing the government of violating the ceasefire agreement brokered by the IGAD mediators.

In a statement released in Juba, the FDs condemned in the "strongest terms" the violation to the cessation of hostilities by the warring parties in the country, stressing that the two sides have the obligation to observe the humanitarian truce.

"It is only by doing so that some modicum of confidence and trust can be built to serve as a basis for meaningful discussions at the next round of HLRF (High-Level Revitalization Forum) talks in February (2018),” the statement reads.

The statement, which is signed by the former finance minister Kosti Manibe, further said they are disturbed by open and flagrant contempt and disregard the first vice president showed towards the implementation of the ceasefire agreement.

“We are particularly perturbed by the open and flagrant contempt and disregard that First Vice President (FVP) Taban Deng Gai by and indeed the regime of President Salva Kiir Mayardit is showing towards the 21st December, 2017 CoH (Cessation of Hostilities) Agreement by moving a large contingent of SSDF (South Sudan Defence Forces) from Juba to Jonglei in broad daylight and in full view of all and sundry,” the group protested in a statement in a January 15, 2018.

The group expressed appalling that the Government, through its spokesperson, Minister Michael Makuei has shamelessly come in the open to announce this violation while at the same time trying to justify it as an innocent and harmless visit by the FVP to his constituents.

It further questioned the basis on which the first vice president moved into the region, citing lack of constituents requiring him to go for a visit.

“He has never contested elective office in Jonglei, therefore has no constituents to visit in Jonglei. He is going as a state official, at the head of a combat force.

"We cannot accept that FVP Taban Deng Gai can be allowed to violate the terms of CoH, move troops and war equipment and indeed conduct warfare with impunity;
neither can we accept that the FVP can use the troops and other resources of the Government while the rest of the Government holds itself absolved of responsibility."

"Whether as a signatory to the CoH Agreement in his own right (SPLM-IO/Taban) or as part of TGoNU, FVP Taban Deng Gai is bound by the terms of the Agreement and should be held responsible for its violation as required by the terms of that Agreement”, the group emphasised.

The SPLM-IO Monday condemned the position of the IGAD countries and the TROIKA saying Gai is touring Jonglei region with a green light from the two bodies adding they are indirectly contributing to the bloodshed in South Sudan.

The FDs called on the IGAD and TROIKA to put the necessary pressure on Juba government to immediately halt movement of troops that have been moved into Jonglei recently with the intention of attacking and capturing "Akobo and two surrounding areas".

They further called to investigate reported violations immediately once it is received. Also, they suggested that the ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) makes public any denial of access by the warring parties besides publishing the the findings of its investigations without delay.

"Delaying the release of CTSAMM investigation until a balancing act has been committed by the other party represents no more than a nuisance message and sends the unfortunate message of comparing a mountain to a molehill, thereby encouraging impunity".

The former detainees further suggested imposing sanctions on those who are responsible for these violations.

    Those Detainees should go to hell, and they have stolen more money. We do not want them to talk because we will never understand what they say. Those detainees should register to the mental institutions so that they can take their medicine.
    We will never give up in storing peace in the country. The First vice president has the right to travel around the country. The state of South Sudan does not belong the foreigners. You must know that it belongs to the President and the First Vice President. We will never be submissive to foreigner affiliates. Foreign Detainees need to go their respected foreigner countries because they are working very hard to destroy the country.

        You are unprofessional. You are using tribal language talk which is unpassionate. Why don’t you go and do it to yourself since you are the only one using inappropriate language? If you are a child, then, you need to grow up and become a leader. Don’t you want to become a leader? You need to show leadership skills by showing the world how you can lead by example and you also need to show that you can drive the nation. You cannot just be cussing if you want your voice to be heard and be accepted. You need to explain your position.

              Equatorian comrades Eyez, Rhino Eastern,
              The more we look at both jienges and Nuers, the more they look the same except that jienges can be streamlined and beaten up into a qeueu whereas the Nuers; disorganized often in disarray without one central locus. As Equatorians, we´ve cushioned them for too long and it is time to tell them to keep doing their endless chaos in their areas.

                .as a witness to the Nuer massacre of 2013, I thought such renegades like Taban and associates would wake up and unite for a common good, sadly, not any single Nuer seems to care or are simply amnestic and complacent. Today, Nuers seem comfortable fighting for jienges in Upper Nile/Jonglei etc. and avenging the thousands killed in Juba doesnt seem to bother them.

                  ..this then leaves us with one central question: how long will Equatorians stand at the sidelines of this tribal anarchy and think it will end? In Bari, we say: "shit defecated a distance can equally smell". This jienge-nuer fight is shit and is smelling horribly in Equatoria. We must tell both, that they should move out and shit in their luaks, afterall they came from somewhere and have homes.

                    ..the only viable option is: EQUAEXIT or Equatoria Exit. If Cirillo, Bakasoro and whichever military and political forces are serious, then this is where our Equatorians can look upto. Afterall, we as Equatorians can live without either of these peoples, but they apparently cant without Equatoria. We hold the key to SS, without which SS is just another SHITHOLE country.

                  I am being honest to you and let it be clear, Equatorians are just disgusted with you. After all we´ve babysitted and accomodated almost every SS in Equatoria, the price is; rape of our women, grabbing of our lands, killing and uncontrolled savagery and barbarism in the name of "unknown gunmen". Enough is enough. This time, Equatoria DOES NOT give a shit to jienges or Nuers.

                    Jiengeland has practically NO war, yet jienges are fleeing to Khartoum, Juba, Kenya, Uganda in thousands, why? Instead of developing their areas so that Equatorians would also think of moving to jiengeland, nothing is being done. You jienges can always have from others and dont want to give, this is stupid and is NO basis for living together.

Save some insults against your favorite subject for tomorrow.I guess and I might be right you are not present in South Sudan because if you were you will know how many people from Equatoria are living peacefully and comfortably in Renk, Melut, Panrieng, Abiei, Wau, Aweil, Rumbek, Gogrial, Bor, etc. Some have even escaped being poisoned and have chosen to go settle there forever.

                        Those Equatorians who went there ofcourse took their families with them and lived exclusively within there own enclaves without mixing with the broader jienge or nuer masses. Most were govt employees, students and traders. No Equatorians would voluntarily want to live in jienge/nuerland for what? To be killed? No thank you. Even jienges themselves have been fleeing to Equatoria, so?

I am Not Jieng. I am Nuer who wants to have a country and be proud of my country. You cannot have a country that is Nuer free only or Dinka Free. You neeed all the children of South Sudan to live in peace. You cannot be talking about racism all the time. That will not take you anywhere.

            Rhino,
            I like that! Today, many filthy jienge men are desperately marrying Equatorian women with a view to having "beautiful and intelligent" kids. This "jiengenization" or rather "bastardization" of Equatoria has serious consequences; many dummies, aggressive and half-beautiful kids with no added value to Equatoria. Our once intelligent, good looking and kind-hearted kids are disappearing fast.

              2. Socially ostracize or cut-off any Equatorian girl who has committed this "sin" of marrying a jienge/Nuer man
              3. Equatorians marry Equatorian, period

    Singing peace...and peace while creating war on the other mean no peace. Peace comes through action, practical deed not writing or singing it. In the eve of said COH, anyone can consider moving heavy military equipment and large number of soldiers near enemy position as provocation, a test to evoke a response. This peace can be forced by outsiders like they did in 2015 but once more will fail.
