February 25, 2018 (JUBA)- South Sudan President Salva Kiir asked members of the East African Community (EAC) to be intimated to external pressure and implement the U.S. or U.S.-backed international sanctions on his country.

Following the repeated violations of the cessation of hostilities agreement, State Department on Friday 2 February imposed a U.S. arms embargo on South Sudan and called on the United Nations and other countries to do the same.

Washington also ready to impose further sanctions and to back any punitive measures the IGAD and the African Union demand the UN Security Council to enforce on the spoilers of the ongoing efforts to end the four-year conflict in the country.

In a speech delivered at the 19th Ordinary East African Community Heads of State Summit in Kampala, on February. 23, Kiir requested the leaders of the East African common market area to not allow that a member state "be bullied by those who would want to cow them down so that they take whatever resources they take from the country".

"South Sudan is not supposed to be poor to the extent that we are in now. South Sudan has potentials and it is potentially rich but no opportunity was given for the development of the resources," he further said.

South Sudan was admitted to the EAC treaty on 15 April 2016 and become a full Member on 15 August 2016. It is the sixth member of the community which includes also Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The South Sudanese president claimed the first round of the second phase of the revitalization failed because opposition groups were emboldened by the sanctions rolled out by the United States of America.

“They were emboldened by a recent decision of the United States to impose sanctions. The government will not collapse and will continue to pursue the way of peace so that we stop war and return peace to the country," Kiir said

"This is what we want everyone who wants to contribute to efforts helping us to improve the current situation, not punishment,” he added.

Earlier this month, Ugandan president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni assured South Salva Kiir that his government would facilitate delivery of arms defying the weapons ban and other sanctions imposed by Washington.

The peace talks sponsored by the regional bloc, the intergovernmental authority on development (IGAD) seek to revitalize the 2015 peace deal which collapsed when clashes resumed in 2016. The parties are expected to resume discussions in March following failure to reach a deal in February.

    Rebels MUST stop such attitudes of wishing this country to collapse! Rebels need to reasons well and behind the scenes, if their (Rebels) brains out of repair, then they need to give up their stupidity idea of war. Do they think the sanction will fly out just as wind blows, when they take over the power?

      Now rebels stepped up an attack against civilians thinking that, all their useless doing will be blamed on government? That’s not going to work out for you thugs. We will teach you a very dear lessons, if that’s how you start behaving. Let’s all accept the truth that peace is the only viable alternative option to end the conflict in our country rather running after nonsense propaganda.

        It was your rotten regime that refused to sign the chapter 2 of peace agreement resolution. It was your regime that refused to discuss the security reform. It was your regime that refuse to have two separate armies till future election is done. It was your regime that refused to leaves all major towns in the country to the regional forces till the future election is done. Stop blaming

          What does Tharjiath produce in comparison to Paloich? Finf that out and get back to me. Paloich provides far more oil then Tharjiath — an oilfield that has matured and declined; even prior to the war Paloich produced 80% of our Nation’s oil. The oilfields in Upper Nile and Unity are overwhelmingly in Dinka territory. Adar-Yale (in Maban territory) is the rare exception.

          Jienges hardest enemies are NOT the nyagateen or Nuers as one would want to belive, rather the Equatorians. Reasons:
          1. Academically and professionally: Jienges have an inferiority complex against Equatorians who have dominated this field for the last 40-50, even during the early 60s. There are more educated Equatorians per 1000 students than jienges owing to the early education in EA countries.

On a similar note, the JCE rejected Federalism as a System of governance although they supported the creation of over 32 junk states, why?

The massive exodus of jienges to settle in Equatoria is an attempt not to lose step, but must catch up. In Yei alone, between 2009-2012,..

                          most publicsSchools registerd a more than 35% registration of primary and secondary pupils only from jienges from Lakes and Jonglei states. This was scary bcoz both states had their own budgest to take care of educatio but had "crowded" our schools to a point of suffocation. The same Picture in Juba, Torit and Nimule. They admired and cherished Equatorian education.

Around 201-202, we had over 50 registered public and private universities till many were put off by MoEST Minister Prof. Adwok Nyaba.

For such hard science like medicine, Engineering, jienges with low marks were aloowed to enroll clearly disadvantaging smarter Equatorians. The argument was " affirmative action", jienges had to catch up. These and other reasons not stated here do explain why JCE and jienges dont.

                                          When will you condemn your Nuer people for brutalizing the Anyuak? You even murdered their Paramount Chief. You have stolen an entire County (Akobo) from the Anyuak... a county larger than Lebanon. You have also stolen another similar sized county (Longechuk) from the Burun as well as lands from the Shilluk ("new Fangak"). You have stolen far more lands than the Dinka...

Are you really ignorant of the fact that the Mor Lou continue to encroach upon the lands of the Anuak? The Mor Lou routinely intimidate and kill the Anyuak in Akobo in order to displace them from their ancestral lands.

                                                The Nuer are in no position to moralise to anyone - as evinced by your treatment of smaller, weaker tribes. The Nuer are at least as morally bankrupt as the Dinka, and arguably more so if you consider their history of forming military alliances with Khartoum. Equatorians and others may lecture the Dinka, but the Nuer cannot do the same. Stop pretending to be something you’re not.

Jienges are fully responsible for themselves it’s upon Equatorians to take adequate measures. Just as jienges have used force to grab lands in Equatoria, no time will be wasted on dialoguing with such settles. Equatoria will use force. Period.

Most Nuer leadership is mediocre, poorly educated, complacent and easily patronized. Political inconsistency among Nuers has further emboldened jienges. They argue, wait till Dr Riak dies, then all is over.

I consistently condemn the Dinka for what they’ve done (and continue to do), so forgive me for not being thrilled at being accussed of justifying Dinka barbarism, land-theft and internal colonialism. Far from condemning the Nuer for what they’ve done against the Anyuak... Jur has excused it and rationalised it, and this is why I called him out.

No Equatorians has this burning desire and unlimited drive to settle down in jiengeland voluntarily, why? It doesnt seem to bother jienges at all, that Equatorians have never reciprocated by settling in their areas. Something is fundamentally skewed here.

The jienges reneged and gave excuses. They jumped off the transfer plan.

The JCE and jienge diehards have redrawn state/county borders to assert this claims. Why then haven’t jienges been able to invite investors to go develop this oil to their advantage?

Kiir is lobby for his survival but may not help his family either in future

      The wise person learns from and never repeat the past mistake, the foolish person keeps repeating the similar mistake, let’s learn from Kokora and its consequences on both Dinka and Equatoria or perhaps the Nuers. In this context, lets us handle Kiir as an individual, time will come when Kiir as his family shall smell odour like Gadhafi and Sadam Hussein who were sodomized by his loyal army before murdered

        the US sanction and Whatever people appeal to Kiir to step down is to bury the indifferences created during his reign, and to allow someone with a fresh mind to build trust, love, and unity that he has never provided, it is not that the US and South Sudanese do not want him, we respect his political commitment during the liberation struggle. He is our Hero, liberator but he must respect that

              Let’s avoid saying such words"we liberated, fought, our government, rebel group, and regional segregation" who knows that we shall have a problem if we succeed from the North? who knows whether there will be no problem is we succeed from Dinka or Nuers? Nobody, so why propagating hatred here?

    Salva Kiir inability, incompetent and insecure made him voluntarily elected intimidation and dismissal when he should have publicly and peacefully engaged those (Riek, Pagan, Nyandeng or Majak) who were too eager to replace him.

        the really problems with many of South Sudanese are: We like to talk too much & complain too much about everything & do little. Salva Kiir cannot free damn food to everything South Sudanese & he cannot solve the South Sudanese problems alone.
