January 10, 2019 (YAMBIO) –Heavy gunshots were heard on Wednesday morning in the northern part of Maridi state of the troubled Equatoria province.

The sound of heavy gunshots, which started in the early morning, created fears among the civilians as some civilians fled the area for safety.

Reached by telephone, a resident from the area told Sudan Tribune that the sound of gunshots came from the bush which was a bit far from the northern part of the town.

“we were hearing heavy gunshots and I saw some people coming from that direction heading to the downtown,” said the resident

Also, a Maridi State government official who declined to be identified told Sudan Tribune that reports from the area speak about an attack carried out by the National Salvation Front forces led Thomas Cirilo (NAS-TC) on SPLA-IO forces who were preparing to work together with the Government forces (SSPDF) in the state.

The source accused the holdout rebel group of seeking to disturb the former rebel SPLA-IO and delaying their preparations which are part of the security arrangements.

However, there is no official statement about the security situation in the area.

NAS-TC recently denied carrying attacks on the signatories of the peace agreement and recalled its commitment to the cessation of hostilities agreement signed on 21 December 2017.

        Eastern,

        An official from the state government made those accusations, meaning jienge government is again pointing fingers at NAS-TC forces.General population in those areas are no longer trusting the government.Some are breaking away from prisons, while others run away from government controlled territories.The government in turn shoot them down.Those heavy gunshots are from the government.

          This is jienge ploy to implicate NAS. Our intelligent sources say, that units of SSDinka Forces attacked IO positions around 4 km outside Maridi on the Maridi-Yei road. The trick was to then blame NAS. All is jienge trash and luak propaganda.

            Don’t waste time with "nus bul jellaba" who even can’t retrace his genealogy. Our problem is not the SSDinka Forces, but Equatorian IOs who have sold their souls to jienges and nyagats and abandoned federalism. It’s our duty to retrench them or get rid of them altogether.

                The Rhino,

                Those Equatorian politicians were nationalists. They believed in a democratic South Sudan devoid of tribalism and nepotism. The problem was that they were dealing with Jieng politicians who were harbouring medieval mentality. At present, South Sudan is going through the early stages of disintegration. It’s just a matter of time before every region or community gets what belongs to it.
