November 8, 2018 (JUBA) - A delegation South Sudan main armed opposition group, SPLA-IO, in Yei River State held a ’fruitful meeting’ with the South Sudanese army (SSPDF) in Yei town to consolidate the ceasefire implementation in the troubled area.

On Wednesday the head of the ceasefire monitoring body CTSAMVM Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Abduljelill condemned the continued sporadic clashes between uncontrolled elements from both sides in Yei and Wau.

Also, he said high ranking military general from the SSPDF and SPLA-IO and were in Yei on 1st of November with CTSAMVM observers to instruct local commanders to commit themselves to the permanent ceasefire.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Lam Paul Gabriel SPLA IO Deputy Military Spokesperson said the visit took place on Thursday 8 November in accordance to the directives of the Chiefs of staff of the SPLA-IO and SSPDF to ease the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement.

Gabriel added the two parties held a meeting at the SSPDF headquarters in Yei to discuss the implementation of the ceasefire and to ensure free movement of people and good as well as the humanitarian access.

"The meeting was so fruitful and promising towards the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement," he said before to add that roads from Yei to Lainya, Lasu and Kaya will be opened to civilians to move freely.

However, the peace partners agreed to put posts along the roads in order to prevent attacks from the forces of the National Salvation Front led by Thomas Cirilo (NAS-TC) which did not join the revitalized peace agreement.

"The SPLA-IO leadership applauds both teams for the breakthrough during this meeting and asks them to continue with this interaction informally so that final peace can be attained. Peace," he stressed.

    Good move fellow country men in SPLA-IO and SSPDF. This is good for our kids, women, traders, farmers, and development partners. Peace is good and precious to all of us. NAS-Cirilo should be peacefully persuaded to see logic and join the peace bandwagon in the country for our sake all.

    We the citizen of South Sudan urged the government and the opposition to unite. We are not enemy because we are brothers and sisters. All the generals in oppositions and the government need to love one another. Our goal this time is to make South Sudan a better country and united under one common goal and the vision of SPLM. The Vision of SPLM will start immediately when the two strong armies merge into one command.

    We the people of this country want to see the government have a powerful unity; this will enable the citizens of South Sudan to have a very strong integration too.

    That is very great. We South Sudanese people must have peace and love among ourselves. Mr. Nairobimitot; I disagree with you by what you said, you said to make South Sudan a better country. But I said we must create peace and love among ourselves in order for us to create a great country in Africa continent and great country for ourselves and for our generations.>>

      This evil terrorist organization gay soldier name Thomas Cirilo should be defeated, because we do not negotiate with terrorist and there is nothing to negotiate with terrorist about. Negotiation time it’s finished.. We are busy negotiating on how to build security and economy in the country, not a weak idea by gay Thomas Cirilo talking about federalism system.

        This is a jienge-nyagateen deal and Equatorians in NAS/PDM/SSNMC shouldn’t even bother cuz this is a dead deal. Jienges and nyagateen have no recorded history of successful peace deals. We have our agenda: Kokora/federalism or death. Without Equatorians all is just bullshit and only possible in Juba not Gokrial, Bor, Bentiu.

          FYI Gen Cirillo has no need to be gay like you luakjiengs who spent most of your youthful age sodomizing each other in cattle camps. Our beautiful, clean Equatorian girls are good enough to dissuade Gen from such jienge culture. Even if he were one, it ’d be revulsive to sodomize a jienge in his filthy shithole or get sodomized by an uncircumcised jienge.
