March 24, 2018 (ADDIS ABABA) - South Sudanese Ambassador to Ethiopia James P. Morgan has dismissed reports claiming that his government want to change the venue of the peace revitalization process to another country.

Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth and the South Sudanese government chief negotiator Nhial Deng Nhial last week stated they want the IGAD mediated political process be relocated into another country pointing to the declaration of a state of emergency, in Ethiopia after the resignation of the Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

Speaking to the Ethiopian news agency Morgan strongly denied that his government had requested the IGAD to change the venue of the peace talks, adding that such reports are disseminated by those who "are not happy with the relationship of Ethiopia and South Sudan."

"My government has responded to this rumour that we are ready to come to Addis Ababa and we have no any idea as to why the peace talk should be relocated?" The South Sudanese diplomat further said.

He stressed his government to reach a political settlement with the armed groups to end the armed conflict which displaced over 4 million South Sudanese since 2013, including 1.9 living in IDPs camps.

In a related development, the Ethiopian foreign ministry spokesperson Meles Alem disclosed that his government, which chairs the eastern African bloc, received a letter from Juba "assuring its continued desire for Ethiopia to host South Sudan peace talks,"

In a statement to the Chinese news agency Xinhua, Alem further said the letter "affirmed South Sudan’s government commitment to the ongoing peace talks".

Last February, the mediation suspended the South Sudan peace revitalization process and said the talks would resume after a short recess as they had just to prepare a new paper based on the different positions expressed on the different matters discussed during the second round of talks from 5 to 16 February.

    Peace is more important than anything in South Sudan. Our government should keep showing the world its interest in peace. By doing that everything should be ok.

      South South,

      Peace is important for the country. However it comes from firm conviction within our minds and heart. Peace can not come from the plates of injustice, tribalism, tribal supremacy policies and corruption. End tribal apartheid in the country then you will definitely see peace. Peace comes with justice !

        People like you are doing injustice in South Sudan. You call for killing one tribe in South Sudan. How do you call that? Justice? No. Tribalism? Yes. You need to start with you, then point fingers to others.

            You are making up your own percentages to satisfy your claim. I am not surprise about that. Let’s just talk about the army in South Sudan. Majority of people who fought for South Sudan were Dinkas. After CPA, our government did try to recruit young men from 10 states, guest which state youth refused to join army? EQUAtORIA. Fire brigade is led by an Equatoria son.

              That is exactly jienges problem. Once you tell him the truth, he starts fidgeting around and cries foul. If Equatorians who fought 17yrs claimed as you assert, then we would have "owned" the SS. After all, your jienge uncle and jella a hireling Abel Alier even dared to negotiate on behalf of jellaba. The excuse that Equatorians didn’t want to join the army is jienge bullshit.

                You can cry and scream as you want. 17 years was fought by Dinka majority. Dinka were majority. Yes, rebellion started in Equatoria in 1955, but Dinka joined it without any question and they became majority. It was a very stupid Equatoria leader called Lago who rushed to bad peace in 1972 after been paid by fake Arabs,, not Abel Alier, shut up.

                  You can squeal, hit and chest-thumb yourself as the "omni-potent jienge" who is everywhere and can do everything, that will NEVER exonerate you. Fact is, you like to reap where you did NOT even cultivate. The jienge wants evyrthing goos for himself, but does NOT know how to get it. He can only grab it. First clear your jienge ame and get SS out of that shit pit.

              Judiciary, Bodaboda Assoc, Farmers Union are all headed by jienges. That is why SS is a "jienge republic". Jienges alone run the political, economic and legal shows and are directly responsible for turning the country into a shithole. The only logical thing non-jienges can do is-never corporate and work with jienges. Let them clear their own shit and fix it alone.

                Between 2011-2012, close to 240 young SS were taken for military training in the air force, mechanized and modern digital warfare to SAfrica and US. Over 80% were jienges including the son of James Hoth Mai who was Chief of staff. Almost 99% failed preliminary tests and were expelled. Today there’s no single homegrown air force pilot but a bu nch of illiterate foot 👣 soldiers.

                  Most of the best candidates were mostly Equatorians who had bachelor degrees but were eliminated during the first registration exercise in Juba. I have a good number of relatives, friends and neighbours I know who applied. The jienge wants everything but can’t do anything. It’s pure greed and emptiness. You jienges can’t compete intellectually with Equatorians. You need 40-60yrs.

                      Ukrainians, Ugandan pilots and hired mercenaries are the ones flying second-hand heli-gunships. Jienges are scared of fast flying high altitude jet planes. They would just crushland them. These are very expensive tools by the way. Just go ahead to do business administration, commerce. law and political science. Leave mathematics and hardcore natural sciences to Equatorians.

                  James Hoth Mai’s son is a South Sudanese citizen and he has all right to join our air force. To join South Sudanese army, is a volunteer job and people cannot sit in their homes and think that someone will go and look for them for recruitment,they are very lazy, wicked and cowards.

                  There is no country called SOUTH SUDAN, but there is a territory called South Sudan which is akin to a "jienge republic". It is of, by and for the jienges. Our new republic will come, that is free, democratic and progressive. Jienges can be part of it in a civilized manner. No greed and savagery will be tolerated.

If you still run SS as a cattle camp, dont be surprised that you will get a thorough beating from the rest. Jienges like you learn the hard way bcoz your brains are yet to developed to think big and become sane. See how the opposition has crumbled down the jienge republic?

All nyagateens are in Juba in hotels and cant get back to their areas to develop them, why? Why is the Kiirminal now like a Juba Mayor? So NO NEED for HLRF. Dont come begging junubin for this jienge ND. Just go ahead and do your jienge shit. Case closed. Next

          You must be mad to say that I advocate for killing innocent citizens whatever ethnic, geographical or political persuasion any citizen is from. Mark my word "JUSTICE" is the only available avenue this country can go through in order to achieve real peace that is material. Peace that we can hold to where every one is equal before the law that is supreme.

            I want justice for myself and for my relatives in South Sudan, no question about that. People who are now fighting are not fighting for justice. They want to take power by force and rule the country by force, is that the justice you are talking about?

            In a desperate move to catch up with Equatorians, jienges are doing everything to bridge the intellectual gap. Mediocre students are filling private universities in Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Egypt etc. Stipends are only given to jienges. But Equatorians are not sleeping. So jienges are destroying schools in Equatoria in order to halt education. The same jienge wants again our education

              The best government schools are in Juba and they are for everybody. Our government is making sure to provide whatever they needs. All students in Zimbabwe returned to South Sudan including Dinkas. Making up lies is very bad and will lead us to nowhere. You said before scholarships are awarded to Dinkas and now you are saying here stipends are given to Dinkas only. This is a lie

                They returned bcoz the country had been stolen dry and no more free floating US$. These govt schools are overwhelmingly taught by Equatorians. If jienges had good teachers, they in their greed would have had these schools in jiengeland. But God is wise, he let them creep to us for food, education and accomodation. That will NEVER change in the next 50-100 yrs. take it or leave it.
