February 18, 2019 (JUBA) - European Union Delegation in South Sudan Monday condemned the violations of the cessation of hostilities agreement and called to stop the recurrent clashes in the Equatoria region.

Recent reports by the ceasefire monitoring mechanism say clashes between the government army SSPDF and the National Salvation Front (NAS) continue in Yei and Amadi states. Also, the holdout rebel group accused Juba of attacks on its positions, pointing to the increasing displacement of civilians.

The EU Delegation "follows with deep concern the ongoing violence in Yei River and Amadi States and condemns violations of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement and the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan which have taken place, as confirmed by the ceasefire monitoring body CTSAMVM".

The statement pointed to the negative impact on civilians including the killing and displacement of villagers as well as the denial of humanitarian access to the affected areas.

UNHCR estimates that over 5,000 civilians have been forced to flee to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and an additional 6,000 internally displaced persons have been registered by the government in Yei town.

The statement further called on the warring parties to cease the fighting and military preparations immediately and to resume talks for a political solution.

The EU Delegation "calls on all the parties to cease hostilities and military preparations immediately, to step up efforts to come to a political solution and to take all possible action to ensure the safety of civilians, their freedom of movement, and to ensure unhindered access to humanitarian actors, UNMISS and CTSAMVM,".

"All parties should implement the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan in a timely manner and in good faith," stressed the EU diplomatic mission in Juba.

The IGAD has decided to bring to holdout groups in Greater Equatoria into the revitalized peace agreement. But, the latter call to open the peace agreement for additional talks and to give the regions more autonomy.

The IGAD Special Envoy to South Sudan met with the non-signatory groups last December but he didn’t announce further steps.

    European Union,

    Equatoria is VERY CALM...! Kiir is implementing peace, what’s the problem?!

    Just make your contribution to the Kiir-Machar peace agreement being implemented in South Sudan, easy and simple!

      US and European should kick out that monkey called Cirillo. He is hiding in US while poor people in Equatoria are suffering. He has no troops, he has no agenda, he is unorganized,he is coward and he is real monkey. No one wants people of Equatoria to suffer, but this monkey and a thief called Cirillo will cause harm to good people of Equatoria. hand him over to Juba, end of the game.

        South South,

        Stop your stupidity...! Who told you that Cirilo is in the US? Who told you that Equatorians are suffering? What’s wrong with the monkeys? Equatorians are celebrating the Kiir-Machar peace agreement in their villages with dances and music and the monkeys are happily enjoying the wild fruits. The Eastern Rock, as usual, provides the needed cover!

          I like your sarcasm. I don’t think these less intelligent jienges can understand that. Break that down like you’d do that for "giant toddlers" whose cognitive abilities have yet to develop. They only understand rough discipline. That’s their nature, we can’t change them.

            One thing is clear, without peace in Equatoria, SS will know no peace. Jiengelands, Nyagatlands are irrelevant and the International community knows that. We are the drivers and determinants of whether SS will progress or remain an everlasting shithole. Jienges and nyagats are in deep shit and terrified by NAS demands for federalism. They can’t develop but love destruction. Losers.

              1.Have jienge settlers returned to their luaks as an indication of peace? NO
              2.Have Nuers been repatriated to Nuerlands as an indication of peace? NO
              3.Is the implementation within the timeline? NO
              4.Have the 32 junk states been revoked and federalism accepted? NO. So let jienges-nyagats push that down their throats.

            What’s your problem with Kiir Adem? The issue in question now is the call by the Eropean Union for the South Sudanese warring parties to cease hostilities in Equatoria, the NERVE CENTRE of South Sudan; don’t attempt to divert the debate!

              I will not divert away from what European said because I am ready for a few rebels in Equatoria. I was just trying to point out your lies, let’s leave it there and go back to the topic of rebels in Equatoria. What we have in Equatoria are a few rebels in Karo land, only that. We will teach them very good lessons, remember where you hear it first.

                Are you crazy..?! There are NO REBELS in Equatoria. Equatoria is calm and what you to do is convince the European Union to previal on their people in the Troika to contribute to the implementation of the Kiir-Machar agreement. Leave the monkeys alone in the bush. Why are you so bothered with those who FEW yet you are VERY MANY?!

        South South,
        The level of naïvety that some of our South Sudanese portray to these vermin is the reason why the love our country this much. Thomas Cirillo was advised by the CIA, MI6 and foreign agents to run Abesh (so-called ethiopia) by the US, the UK, their NGOs, their cloned so-called Arabs of North Sudan, gulf Arab states and some of creeps here in our region after they saw that their Riek Machar aimless rebellion was utterly crushed on the ground. But the countries l have mentioned above have not gotten what they are after in our country----to install into power in country their puppets/stooges of Mr. Riek Machar, Pagan Amuom, Lam Akol, Majak Agoot, Uyai Dang Ajak, Adwok Nyabe or Thomas Cirillo. And the evils want to go and micromanage their puppets/stooges in Washington, Wall street, UN New York building, London, Brussels, Nairobi, Adis Ababa, Journesberg, Dubai, Bahamas, Cayman lslands, Panama or other shady countries the thieves and their foreign masters go and hide their loots in>>>

          How long are you fellows being informed that your US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs, their cloned so-called Arabs of North Sudan, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, their gulf Arab states financiers are not our damn allies but our real enemies. Do you lowly informed the reasons as why the evil from the US, the UK and their allies refused "the South Sudanese calls for national dialogue" right here inside South Sudan? The game is as l explained earlier. The evil white Americans, English people, their cloned so-called arab s of North Sudan, their evil juus (so-called Israelis) and some of their creeps in between covet our country and our people to death>>>

            The cloned so-called Arabs of North Sudan don’t even hide it. They say plainly that there cannot be North Sudan without South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. These cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan have a considerable amount of influence in the devil infested Island of the UK. Some of these cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan even have membership in the devil infested island of England exclusive clubs. I posted a number of times that the so-called ’brexit’ the UK exiting the European UN (EU) is being ’negotiated over our country and people. The evils in the US love our country and people to death because they consider our country and our people to their front line country and our people to be expendable fools whom they can always use like their Kurdistan people that they always use in Middle East>>>>

              To fight their for their global hegemony and evil empire survival. People of Kurdistan were used by the US and the UK during the WW1 and WW2 as their expendable fools. Again. The same evils used the same Kurds as their expendable fools during their gulf war one and gulf war two to further their evil empire. And again, the evils are again using the Kurds against their own ISIS, El Nustra, El Qaida, Muslim Brotherhood or Jesh Islam. And the Kurdistan people of Northern Iraq voted overwhelmingly a few years ago. The evils in the US, the UK, France and other countries who always expend them look the other way>>>

Mr. Salva Kiir and his allies were reconciled by the Tanzanian ’Chama Cha Mapindusi (CCM) in Arusha with Mr. Riek Machar, Pagan Amuom and other bunch of foreign puppets/stooges. The criminals agreed, but when they went back to Nairobi, they went and changed their minds with the directives of their masters from the US, the UK, their evil juus (so-called israelis) and demand that Mr. Salva Kiir must resign. And that the South Sudanese people must go onto the street to remove Mr. Salva Kiir from power>>>

Mr. Salva Kiir, Pagan Amuom and their bunch of other traitors, thieves and foreign puppets/stooges went to Adis Ababa and went sat on the negotiation table as different so-called SPLM/A-IO and the so-called Former detainees (FDs) And foreign masters pushed their then so-called ARCISS into the government of South Sudan and the South Sudanese people to sign it by force.>>>

                    The losers, traitors, thieves and foreign puppets/stooges signed the dammed documents that was nothing to with the peace in our country and between our people but the hand over our of country to foreign interest group. The government of South Sudan flatly refused to sign the damned document, but came and signed the damned document one week later inside South Sudan and in front of South Sudanese people. Something that was absolute to do so. Now, Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol and other of losers are being kept hostage in Khartoum by their foreign masters and the evils think we are their fool to not to their evil intents. Good luck to the evils and their puppets/stooges>>>

Fellows, South Sudan is not part of the so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, never has and will never ever be and South Sudanese people are not so-called evil ANGLO-AMERICA subjects or slaves, never have and will never ever be.

            I haven’t reply to your comments in the past. Problems of South Sudan are inside South Sudan, not from US or UK or somewhere else. Those countries you mentioned will not involve themselves with South Sudanese affairs if we have good leaders in our country. People like Cirillo, how would you call them?

        Lazy and foolish jienge miscreants have had peace since 2005, yet they constitute the single largest number of IDPs, refugees in the diaspora. Terrified by hunger,anarchy,self destruction, large, unproductive and lazy population, peace has no meaning to them. Instead they jealously have destroyed Equatoria out of bitterness. We didn’t tell them to be lazy and foolish.

He has legitimate rights to defend himself against jienge settlers, criminals and thugs. Defense is not war. The EU should talk to the kiirminal and his jienge savages and NOT Cirillo. Case Closed.

      After jienges butchered Nuers in Juba, Equatorians should have become alert and vigilant. They were next. The jienge is a killer, criminal, liar and beggar and wont hesitate to kill in order to get his loot. Equatorians must understand this simple arithmetic: jienge=jellaba=jabakana (3j). We must kill b4 he does and we mustnt show mercy, then he’s merciless. Eye4eye, tooth4tooth.

      When jienges talk of SPLA/M and SS, they really imply themselves. When IO talks of SS, they also mean themselves the Nuer or nyagats. We Equatorians foolishly talk about SS, we think on broader nationalistic and patriotic terms. This is bullshit and stupid. We must now talk about EQUATIO FIRST. To hell with SS.

But their most coveted country in Africa with resources and whose her central bank keys have not yet been taken by the Europeans, Americans and their daughters of zoin bankers.
