The strategic state which borders Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been the theatre of continued clashes between the government and rebel forces in the southern part of South Sudan.

"It came to our knowledge that, Emmanuel adil Anthony, the regime’s Governor of Yei River State has ordered Brigadier Pitia, Commander of the SPLA in Kajo-Keji to capture all SPLA (IO) territories in Kajo-Keji County," said local rebel spokesperson Wayi Godwill Edward on Monday.

He went further to say that the planned attack is part of the governor’s plans to dispatch commissioners of Kangapo and Liwolo counties.

On Sunday, the SPLA-IO forces managed to repulse an attack on their position in Kendiri area of Kajo Kaeji county. It was the second attack on the rebels in the area.

The statement stressed that these attacks are in clear violation of the permanent ceasefire declared in Khartoum on 27 by President Salva Kiir and SPLM/A leader Riek Machar and called on the monitoring body, CTSAMM, and the UNMISS to investigate their claim.

The statement urged the ceasefire observers and peacekeepers to hold the "anti-peace" Governor Emmanuel Adil and Brigadier Pitia accountable for sabotaging the peace process and derailing the suffering of the South Sudanese".

The Khartoum Declaration of Agreement is implemented on the basis of the cessation of hostilities agreement as the warring parties did not yet reach an agreement on the outstanding issues in the security arrangements.

An agreement on the determination of demilitarized areas and the modalities of cantonment which are among the pending issues is crucial for a successful implementation of the ceasefire.

    They’re jiengenized Equatorian suckers who perhaps watched their sisters and mothers raped by jienge anyor bastards and gleefully cheered on without any resistance. Such are the Yei governor and Brig Pitia. Sellouts and hirelings will always be, but we must tell such mongrels, they better had their "balls" cut off, cuz they’re worse than faggots and eunuchs.

The idiot just love to spur the innocent Equatorians to his Bari way of complaining on just about everything on earth. But if their bullsh*t is later tackled head-on. Then they would ran to Uganda & go lie through their teeth they were targeted by the>>>>

          Dinkas/Jenges’ government simply becasue they were Equatorians as if their so-called Equatoria is an homogeneous kind of a region. Tell this Jubaone low live that there are many Equatorians who are related to Jenges/Shilluks or Nuers than they are raleted to Bari. And this low live would not understand since ’history & facts’ are not these trashes are known for. So waste your time not on Jubaone>>

        Aryan jienge can’t now pretend to be civilized when it was us who taught them to wear underpants in Juba na Bari which they later on corrupted to Thongpiny. We gave them land to plant their peanuts and so that is how Thongpiny came about.

          Thongpiny roughly translates land is same. That place was very much a wetland and settlers were simply saying (to those in good places), know what, there’s no bad land, place.
