February 17, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan rebel leader Thomas Cirilo said he would continue to fight the government until a new peace deal is signed.

“We’re not going to stop. If Juba thinks that without bullets we’re not going to be able to protect ourselves and our people they’re wrong,” Cirilo told the U.S.-based Vice News on Friday.

“We need a governance system which renders services to the people of South Sudan,” he further said.

The leader of the National Salvation Front (NAS) and several groups rejected the IGAD mediated revitalized peace agreement saying they want a genuine federal system ensuring more administrative autonomy for the regions.

The government army (SSPDF) recently intensified attacks on the positions of NAs fighters in Central and Western Equatoria triggering new waves of displacement.

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) said in a recent report that some 5,000 South Sudanese moved to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and 8,000 took refuge in Yei.

Cirilo who also leads the umbrella of the holdout groups, South Sudan National Democratic Alliance (SSNDA) says he has 30,000 troops under his command.

The IGAD Special Envoy for South Sudan met with the SSNDA last December but not he did not manage to organize a meeting between them and the government.

Seemingly, he has to wait until for formation of the revitalized transitional government next May before to convene a new round of talks between the warring parties.

Also, the mediator is tasked to persuade the holdout groups to join the revitalized peace pact but not to open it for negotiations again.

          Cirillo has spoken and we Equatorians will follow. Jienges have SSDinka Forces, Nuers and nyagats have IO, SSLM, FP and other diverse militias, Equatoria has NAS/PDM/SSNMC. They want dialogue on federalism, we talk. They want war, we fight. We should NOT get scared of naked savages at all. We only get scared of their animalistic nakedness.

    Stop Whining, Mr. Swaka.

    There is only one peace deal we got. Please, come back to Juba and sign it before it is too late. No one is going to waste his time going to Khartoum or to Ethiopia in the name of a new peace deal. The wisest thing you just have to do is to come to Juba and we will discuss it out. Okay, Cirilo?

      Questions,why are Nuers and others still in PoC sites right here in Juba,if there were peace?Why are citizens running away from government controlled towns if you believe in fake peace?Why are Kiir’s malnourished militias still loot, rape,terrorize and murder innocent civilians on daily basis?Listen,the wisest thing to do will be to come to Juba with guns and chase you ghouls out of power!

        Thank you. Nuers are still holed up in Juba PoC, jienge squatters are still lazily idling in Nimule and Juba with others comfortable as food refugees in Kenya and Uganda. Even with peace in their junk states, they are terrified to return to their areas. They are confused and migrate everywhere like locusts or termites eating away everything they find. They expect us to babysit them. NO.

        @ The Rhino,
        A short answer for you is that those Nuers have no salaries to survive. So, without the UN support and that no one calculated last year at their respective homes, it would be a disaster if they move out. Remember, those Neurs in the PoC are not Riek’s brothers and are not from Bentiu alone. In fact, there are lau Neur, Jikeny, Dok, Nyuong, Leek and more other Neurs in there. Find out!

    To all South Sudanese who believe in national cohesion, truth and justice....Gen. Thomas Cirilo is absolutely right - I am in agreement with Gen. Thomas Cirilo 100%. The Khartoum peace deal shares South Sudan amongst the Nuer and Dinka. If we choose to play hide and seek, the country will bleed further...!

      You are falling in the tragedy of Western powers who are doing everything they can to destabilize South Sudan. Let me remind you MR Eastern that Western don’t know Cirilo but interests, if their interests is with Juba government today they will dumb Cirilo without caring about damaged they cause him. How can you support the destruction when there is a way to address differences?

        This is like defecating on self and blame others for running away, jeering or laughing at you. This war with current consequences (problems) was created in broad daylight in front of all by our own thoughtless and selfish leaders. Crying foul and blaming world for our own problems wouldn’t cut it.

        We have no time for jienge and nyagat losers whose worthlessness is only comparable to bush chimps. These miscreants and mongrels are less intelligent than us, so have more emotions than reason. Cuz they can’t and won’t develop themselves, these losers often bicker and hold others responsible for their worthlessness. From nothing comes nothing. Equatoria First.

      Khartoum peace distributed positions between well armed groups- regime and armed groups. You don’t have to cry foul on any tribe. It was Gatdet Yak, Author Deng, Yau Yau and Riek Machar yesterday and today is just Thomas Cirillo turn. Once he’s awarded or satisfied, it’ll be someone else.

      Ever had that jienges sitting down and planning something progressive if not to kill, steal and hoodwink others? Congenital thieves and goons. NAS/PDM/SSNMC should just go with our program of federalism or at best Equatexit. Jienges and other nyagats are terrified by federalism cuz, they will never develop themselves. They’re hiding behind Equatorias and without us, just stinking shitholes

        Just to consolidate our assertion that jienges are congenital losers. What transformations in terms of socio-economic development have we seen in jiengelands? Most of us Equatorians who worked and traversed jiengelands know very well, they just don’t have the "stuff" to develop themselves. Like giant toddlers, they need help all the time. Ever seen anything since 2005?

      In the end, jienges and nyagats are useful idiots for some foreign powers. They are simply executing jellaba and Ugandan agendas. To Bashir, they are useful puppets who must ensure oil proceeds flow, SS doesn’t develop and after 20 years, Egyptians will settle in their areas. After all, all jienges have run 🏃 away leaving empty lands. Give them food 😋 and they give you everything.

      SS can’t be borne or built at the expense of Equatorians NO. Jienges think of themselves so do Nuers and nyagats. Why should we give a fuck if SS should go down the drain? No. We Equatorians must think of ourselves first and so we choose federalism. If they don’t want, we go for State of Equatoria (SoE). NAS/PDM/SSNMC is our army, our people. Jienges and nyagats are irrelevant to us.

      For your information, the names ’suruwal mafi or rujal mafi’ came about after jienges in the early ’80s before KOKORA,loitered naked in the markets of Atlabara and down at Konyokonyo.Our chiefs in Equatoria had to design quick laws to force you savages wear pants and whip your ass’s when found naked.Our women were mainly the ones selling items in the markets,jienges then call those.....

          Jienges and nyagats are irrelevant to us. We don’t need them for anything. Even as slaves, they wouldn’t do anything except squatting and playing mungula or singing cow songs all day. Don’t associate, touch, talk to any of them. They will simply infect you. How did God create them in the first place? God was tired I guess and less focused. He forgot something.

            Eat your heart out! Stop thinking that some powerful force will emerge out of blue and chase "Jienge" out of Juba and Equatoria. That is delusional thinking, my friend. learn to live with "Jienge" or you can quietly leave South Sudan. You will just die of a heart attack hating "Jienge." So you know, there are sons born of Equoatorian mothers and Jienge fathers. How about that?

        Ask any elderly person who lived in Juba in the 60s and 70s when jienges walked naked around Nyaing, Juba na Bari and Malakia areas. Small boys would fling small stones using catapult targeting their exposed and dangling genitals. Once hit, they would squeal like pigs and chase the kids. One had to be fast or risk getting beaten by their batons. It was fun these aryan jienges.
