December 16, 2018 (JUBA) - The holdout People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) Sunday called for popular mobilization in South Sudan in order to hold accountable the government of President Kiir for the atrocities committed against civilians in Juba five years ago.

"PDM observes, with the deepest sadness, the December 15th 2013 atrocities of President Salva Kiir’s tribal regime against innocent Nuer civilians in Juba, triggering atrocious five years civil war," said Hakim Dario PDM leader in a statement released on the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of Juba massacre on 15 December 2013.

The opposition group which rejects the peace pact further said the revitalized agreement, in fact, rewarded "the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE) regime" and predicting that the country and its population will continue to be deprived of their right to justice and sustainable peace.

"On this 5th anniversary of Kiir’s crimes against our nascent state, PDM calls upon our people in Upper Nile, Equatoria, and Bahr al-Ghazal to lead freedom action for NADAFA of their country from tyranny, and from corruption, impunity and the rule of tribal elites," Dario said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

"Make NADAFA of Upper Nile, NADAFA of Equatoria, and NADAFA of Bahr al Ghazal, from dirt and impunity, work for the country as a whole to put the people first," he added.

Last November, the PDM called for a new National Alliance for Democracy And Freedom Action (NADAFA) saying it would be a popular tool to achieve fundamental change in South Sudan.

The opposition group calls for to establish a federal state with three regions in the Upper Nile, Equatoria, and Bahr al Ghazal, based on the territorial administration established by the colonial British power before the independence of Sudan in 1956.

    This is shallow perception if accountability should dwell only in Juba massacre, when so many areas experience an indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of many people between 2013-2014 in Bor, malakal, Akobo and Bentiu.

      People’s killed in those place you mentioned but that was a revenge attacks because of what happened in Juba.... Juba massacre was mother of all, and the root caused in this situation we’re in today.... This is just a little clue for you to why Juba massacre is going to be on spot light in the next few coming days until people’s like you understood and start to condemn Juba massacre....

        Malakal county Simon,
        Telling you Riek Machar supporters boneheads is like telling stones to listen. If your Riek Machar, Taban Deng Gai, Alfred Lado Gore & others didn’t staged a coup on the two army baracks. Then why didn’t the cowards stay in their residence but slipped out at night, came here to Bor. Kill innocent civilians, in Churches in Bor, Akoba, Anasir, Malakal & Bentiu? By the way>>>

          Malakal county Simon idiot, if your Riek Machar, Taban Deng Gai, Alfred Lado Gore were fearful for their sorry ars*ses. Then why didn’t they just went to any embassy in Juba & called for calm the next day, the 16/12/2013 or even on the same night of the 15/12/2013. And the whole so-called Nuer mascre would have been avoided. But telling you Nuer fools the truth is like telling donkeys the truth>>>

I lost some my dearest relatives of which if I didn’t helped bombed your so-called white army low lives out of my home town of Bor. Then I couldn’t be responding to you scums on these forums.

The Reason why the evils in that devil infested Island of England, their corporate American piece monster, their UN, their evil juus (so-called israel), their gulf Arab states paymasters are so fixated on our country is simply because the evils think they own our country & we are their subjects or their slaves>>>

                      No one is born with racism & hatred. But racism & hatred are somethings that you just earn. Many of you Nuers ke nyantoc, Shilluks & some Equatorians just watch a lot of these evil white Americans, English and their evil juus (so-called israelis) Americanized Hollywood videos and propaganda. But you idiots don’t even ask the African-American or Afro-Caribbean in those evil countries how they are>>

When people in one country or tribes killing tgemselves like animals in Sudan or South Sudan, it cannot be a recipe for War World brother because super powers are not involved in death toll!!! Elso, WW3 would have taken place in 1990’s in Ruwnada!!!

        Talking about accountability in South Sudan, we MUST go to 1991 and start from Bor Massacre, then December 2013 in Juba, then 2013-2014 in Bor, Malakal, Akobo and Bentu. Then Yei-Juba road. Let’s do it that way.

          There was no death in Bor in 1991. There was death in Juba on 2013 though.

            A government that supposed to protect her own civilians but turn their guns on them.... 91 cannot and will never be compared to the well-plan massacre of 2013

              Well, 1991, we have videos, tapes, eye witnesses and Riak himself accepted it and said he is sorry. If we reduce our accountability to Nuer only, that will take us nowhere. All tribes of South Sudan MUST be equal in court of law, if not, we will end up denying everything including 2013, you get it a little boy?

                Than if Dr Machar accepted that 1991 was a mistaken and said sorry as you mentioned, then why keep complaining about 91?? If unwanted president Salva Kiir do the same tomorrow or in the next coming month’s, maybe the Nuers can accept to let’s go 2013 Juba massacre and move on.... Please tell your boss to try it or 2013 Juba massacre, will be on your neck each year until you accepted!!
