Right body condemns S. Sudan embassy for blocking peace event


June 3, 2018 (KAMPALA) - The Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ) has strongly condemned the South Sudanese embassy in Uganda for obstructing a public debriefing on South Sudan’s peace talks that was held at Cavendish University in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.

The weekend public dialogue was being organized by civil society groups in the context of the ongoing high-level revitalization forum.

CPJ’s executive director, Anthony Tito said the embassy officials should have instead supported the peace process, instead of frustrating efforts aimed at bringing an end to the peoples’ suffering.

“As a civil society organization, we don’t need a permission from South Sudan embassy to carry out an event or to conduct a workshop or any sort of activity that we need to carry out, therefore we will not seek permission from the embassy to carry our activity,” said Tito.

“I wonder since when embassies are allowed to restrict civil society activities in the diaspora, besides that 98% of South Sudanese living in Uganda are refugees and are under the care of office of Prime Minister and United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees,” he added.

South Sudanese, Tito stressed, deserve to know what is taking place during the peace process mediated by the regional bloc (IGAD).

“The refugees are human, they need to be updated on the progress of the talks, but I wonder what the South Sudanese government who is part of negotiation team does not want refugees and others to know the development of talks,” said Tito.

The human rights official, however, said the diaspora civil society would continue with the engagement of South Sudanese in Uganda on the importance of peaceful co-existence and brotherhood.

The second round of the IGAD-led High Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) ended last week without any deal after the warring parties rejected a proposed power sharing deal developed by IGAD is yet to announce the next date for the negotiations.

South Sudan plunged into war in December 2013, barely two years after independence from Sudan, after a disagreement between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Riek Machar deteriorated into a military confrontation.

Tens of thousands have been killed by the fighting between troops loyal to Kiir and forces loyal to Machar. The conflict has also left a quarter of the country’s population of 12 million either internally displaced or as refugees in neighbouring countries.

    The kind of devil that government of S.Sudan particularly dinka worship, is terrible. when talk peace, they quote it war. Can one Jenge tell me what kind of human beings are you who don’t know peace even among themselves as community? What do you normally understand? How can you Understand? When will you understand? The floor is open.

      Brother, the jenge were wrongly perceived to have cow mind, now it has become clear and true that they backwardly devolved to wild animals, meaning cows are better than them.

      All Nyagats should shut up. We are at the current mess because of Nyagats. There is no justification for violent political change whatsoever. Why flee if you believe in violent change. Malong is one of the most corrupt thugs in the country. Even if peace comes today economic crises will continue due to overemployment. The size of the army will triple. Rubbish.

    Remember, South Sudan under the dinka regime in Juba has been reduced to another district of Uganda. Otherwise how can an event in Kampala be stopped by the regime embassy if Kampala is not exercising authority over Juba? Kiir will want to fly but the truth will bring him down from his high horse!

        South South,

        I am enjoying my monkey meat here in Buseri, South Sudan. How can a coward leave their village for the unknowns of the urban area? I was only asking if Kampala has become another part of South Sudan where the regime embassy has a say on the citizens expressing their views. Not all South Sudanese outside the country seek consular assistance from the Embassy of South Sudan.

          Those wicked Riak’s supporters in Kampala are not telling the truth. They failed to get permission from Uganda authority. You can’t live in South Sudan with me Eastern, only if you shut up your mouth and love your country, other than that, you will rest in DIAPORA forever.

        Ya Junubi Junubi,

        You better stop doing your secret habits in front of people!!! Diasporas are the backbone of any struggle around the world!!! Your uncle Kiirdit knows that very well when he was a rebel leader against his friend today Bashir.
        If not these diasporas in Unganda, Kenya, Ethiopa, Egypt, North America, and other parts of the world, South Sudan would have not been a country!!! Shut up
