SPLM-IO denies plans to attack South Sudan roads


July 14, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s main armed opposition group Saturday slammed false press reports published in Juba about alleged by SPLM-Io generals plan dubbed " Unknown gunmen" to attack and loot civilians and commercial convoys across the country.

"This is completely an unfounded allegations meant to tarnish the image of the SPLA IO something that a media outlet is supposed to avoid professionally," said Lam Paul Gabriel SPLM-IO deputy spokesperson.

The report claims that orders had been given to Maj Gen Okeny George Lam by Maj. Gen Oyet Nathaniel Perino (SPLM-IO governor of Imotong state) who is currently part of SPLA IO peace negotiations to ambush and attack commercial convoy along the roads and highways in South Sudan.

Gabriel said the publication of the report was politically motivated.

He further added that the audio recording of a telephone call on this respect between generals circulating is a "makeup" of the regime’s Military Intelligence unit to implicate Governor Oyet, Gen. John Tongun and Okeny George Lam.

"The voices in that audio don’t belong to any of the aforementioned Senior SPLA IO officials," he declared.

He further called on the ceasefire monitoring mechanism CTSAMM and South Sudan’s peacekeeping operation UNMISS to immediately investigate the newspaper that published this report and to hold it "accountable for violations of the permanent ceasefire.

    Since late 2015 to the end of 2016, wasn’t the so-called SPLA-IO that used to hijacked/stopped commercial vehicles & public service Vehicles (PSV) and demanded if there were some MTNs (Jenges/Dinkas) in those cars? Everyone in South Sudan knows this, some innocents Jenges/Dinkas were hauled out of their cars & butchered along the Juba-Yei road, Juba-Yambio-Munduri roads, Juba-Bor road simply>>>

      because they were Dinkas/Jiengs. But when the government of South Sudan sent in some government soldiers to go & looked into what was happebing in Juba-Yei road, Juba-Yambio-Munduri, Juba-Nimule & Juba-Bor roads. Then the hooligans who caused the havocs & insecurities on those roads ran to Northern Uganda and then went & lied through their teeth that the Dinkas/Jenges government targeted them>>>

        simply because they were Equatorians! Which was a piece of crap. Equatoria is not & has never ever been an homogeneous state that some Dinkas/Jenges can target some Equatorians simply because they were Equatorians. When we later investigated what exactly happened. We later found out that criminals were even advised by CIA, MI6, Mosad & other foreign agents posing as UN & NGOs workers>>>

          to run to Uganda because they will go & be resettled in the US, Europe & other western countries. Mr. Thomas Cirillo, Pagan Amuom, Lam Akol & bunch of other foreign sellouts or puppets even encouraged their fools to leave South Sudan for foreign countries since Salva Kiir Dinka/Jenge government was about kill them all!!!

      The opposition should not be apologetic whatsoever. War is war and jienge vagrants and free loitering idiots must not be embedded snd hide themselves behind armed bandits. All free jienge runaways are legitimate targets if seen on our Equatorian roads. Hang them and drive them back to jiengelands. No compromise. Period.
