SSOA factions accuse others of derailing South Sudan peace


December 24, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The South Sudan Patriotic Movement (SSPM) Monday accused some members of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) led by Lam Akol of conducting "subversive actions" to split the alliance and derail the peace deal.

SSOA which a signatory of the revitalized peace agreement is divided over the leadership of the alliance. On 30 November 2018, Lam Akol, the leader of the National Democratic Movement (NDM) backed the election of Peter Gatdet for the chairmanship of the alliance but the incumbent leader Gabriel Changson contested the election and refused to accept its result with the support of other factions.

In statements to Sudan Tribune SSPM media official, Stephen Lual Ngor claimed that Lam Akol continues to reject Changson leadership and works to build another faction of the opposition alliance.

Lam Akol brings (South Sudanese) elements from outside the country that have nothing to do with the (revitalized peace) agreement and were not part of the negotiations or SSOA to merge them into an alliance under the same name," Stephen said.

He added these hostile efforts against the alliance would undermine the fragile peace deal signed four months ago.

Stephan further called on Lam Akol and his allied factions to stop those actions that were "hurting efforts for peace" in the country.

"SSPM under the leadership of Castillo Garang urges ’SSOA’s parties to resolve their internal differences before the loss of control of the situation," he said.

Also, he called on Lam Akol and Peter Gatdet to return to the alliance, warning that the opposition umbrella would take "deterrent action" against those who attempt to dismantle the alliance.

The alliance was the third group - by its importance- among the signatories of the revitalized peace pact. However, several factions left the alliance after their rejection of the peace agreement.

In the event of a new split, the IGAD which mediated the peace talks and now overseeing the implementation process and the other peace partners would be forced to reconsider how to share the positions allocated to SSOA among the factions of the initial umbrella.

The IGAD Special Envoy for South Sudan is consulting with the non-signatories who established a new structure called South Sudan National Democratic Alliance, as the east African bloc is preparing to convince them to join the peace pact of 12 September 2018.

      Lam Akol and their other bunch fools would be welcomed back to South Sudan to come and share power with the current government of South Sudan in *may next year* that is not going to happen even in million years. The owners are here. South Sudan is a Dinkas/Momyjiengs of the Sudan country through & through. North Sudan is also a South Sudanese people country through & through>>>

    Here again we can see politicians like Stephen Lual Ngor wrongly getting the whole concept of peace agreement in the country as a property of the signatories of the agreement. The agreement belongs to the people of the country and they have a say on it. Democracy that is advocated by Lam Akol is what all must embrace for sustainabilitry of peace in our country.

          Jienges, nyagats and non-Equatorians are desperately scampering to Juba for crumbs and leadership positions. Financially broke and unable to sustain their families, they´re now submissively crawling back to Juba to stash what may come out of the oil money. They are fearful of Gen Cirillo and terrified by his call for federalism.

            Whether SSOA,IG,IO all non-Equatorian idlers and settlers want to idle and live freely in Juba hotels and eat free food while their weak and wretched folks back in the luaks starve to death. None of these lazy non-Equatorians have ever wanted to get back and develop their places. They just cant, wont and will never do that! But we cant babysit all of them all the time. Federalism=Work=Development

              Jienge loser and scum. You are just the ordinary lazy jienge. You have had peace since 2005 yet your luaks are the same stinking shitholes. Without Equatorians you’re not different from tailless monkeys who only eat mangoes and can’t make juice out of them. Shut up ya MTN.

    Idiot Stephen Lual Ngor
    Patriotic Party for nothing.
    How come you blamed Lion King Field Mashall, General Gatdet Yak. The election was held and General Gatdet won it. So who is now should be blamed? General Gatdet or Liew Chang who lost his seat to General Gatdet. If you don’t know the meaning of the election, ask people.
