S. Sudan rebel group deny links to "apprehended" U.N vehicle


March 3, 2018 (JUBA) – Members of South Sudan National Movement for Change (SSNMC) have denied and condemned in the “strongest terms” government’s allegations that it apprehended a United Nations car loaded with guns, ammunitions and military equipment with connection to the SSNMC chairman, Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro.

On Wednesday, SSNMC said in a statement, the state-owned television (SSBC) reported that “national security apprehended a UN car loaded with guns, ammunitions and military equipment”.

“The lady who was in charge of the car confessed the items belong to security officer Doming Ruiz who was connected to Joseph Bakosoro, who is currently in Uganda mobilizing for war in Western Equatoria”, SSBC, according to the statement, further reported.

“SSNMC would like to reach out to our supporters, well-wishers and the entire people of South Sudan that we, as an organisation, or our Chairman Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro, as an individual, have/has no knowledge about and no involvement in the said apprehension matter if at all the matter holds ground and can be substantiated any way,” partly reads the group’s 2 March statement.

“We strongly believe this allegation is unfounded and a shoddy and despicable propaganda by a government that has failed all milestones of a moral and trustworthy leadership/government, but has instead brought disgrace onto its people of good repute,” it adds.

The group, in its statement, also claimed the allegations made by the Juba regime was simply a ploy to justify their incessant violation and abrogation of the 21 December 2017 ceasefire agreement and advancing no political will for the resolution of South Sudan’s civil war.

“We assure the people of South Sudan that we stand for peace and search for durable solution to the crisis in our country,” it further said.

It further added, “SSNMC would like to appeal to the UN to investigate this matter and publish its findings to the people of South Sudan”.

    Let U.N. staffs whoever caught up with loaded truck with ammunition talk, not you rebels, because you need an ammunition anyway. Bangasi is a rebels anyway, let him accept the fact that he doesn’t have an independent logistics viable transportation mean, so he used U.N. vehicle to supply military equipment.

    South Sudan government should make it a square deal that when a UN vehicle has been caught red handed ferrying weapons for killing purpose in South Sudan, they should be killed there at the spot. We are tired of this UN meddling and undermining in South Sudan. If UN has become a party to conflict, then people should know so that people start to kill any UN moving around like in Somalia, Yemen,

    I think the solution about UNMISS is to returned all camps inside South Sudan in to their own communities and cities if there are people who living before then, says goodbye UNMISS because this is too much now. During the SPLA/SPLM wars, there were fighting in Equatoria, Upper Nile and Bhar el Ghazal regions but the people never leave their owns communities to seeks UN, assistant for almost 22 yrs

      For those South Sudanese in the know, the so-called UN peacekeeping business around the world particularly here in Africa has nothing to do with peacekeeping as some of our fools are often made to believe.

Take for example, there was a Congolese statesman called Patrice Lumumba, who got the Belgium criminals out of his country.

And up to today, the UN & its so-called UN peacekeeping project has never left Eastern since Congo’s independence in 1960th. The reason here is precisely the DRC mineral riches.
