February 20, 2019 (JUAB) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Wednesday met with a former rebel official who defected from the South Sudan United Front (SSUF) led by his ex-army chief of staff Paul Malong.

Lewis Anei Madut the former SSUF Secretary-General returned to Juba on 8 February and was received by government officials including the Press Secretary in the Office of the President, Ateny Wek Ateny.

Following the meeting, Ateny said Madut decided to return to the country and to support the ongoing implementation of the revitalized peace agreement that ended a five-year conflict in the country.

"Mr Lewis broke away from the South Sudan United Front and came to Juba at the invitation of the President of the Republic Salva Kiir Mayardit in the context of the general amnesty to all who lay down arms and join the process of resolving political issues peacefully in the country," said Ateny in a press statement released by the South Sudanese Presidential Unit.

For his part, Madut who was the former Warrap Governor said President Kiir welcomed him and confirmed his willingness to work with him for peace in the country.

Earlier this month, the former rebel official told reporters he was invited to return to Juba by the people of Tonj state. He Further said he expects further SSUF would return to the country in the upcoming days.

On 19 December, SSUF leader Paul Malong met with the IGAD Special Envoy for South Sudan Ismail Wais and announced his willingness to seek a peaceful settlement with the government.

          As a liberator, someone turned his gun to dirty government by then can not come back to surrender in bare hands, something tangible should be inked, Dr Machar can not except such a move. He had signed all those mentioned years though crooks people had ruined them after, that was not Dr Machar fall OK.

            When the rebellion is reasonable like the war of 1983-2005 the result carries weight with meaning to the people. But war you are fighting in South Sudan is because of :
            1. Ngundengism ( Ngundeng ideologies)
            2. Removals from a position
            3. Why the number of tribe A are more than tribe B
            Where on earth can a country go to war waste life and property to achieve the above listed reasons?

              For your information, do you know that Dr. Riek took heavy human resource and arms from SPLM/A in 1991 and surrendered them to Bashir and came back with no pistol in 2002 leaving the whole Nuer population in the hands of Bashir? No matter how you pretend not to be knowing, the history has it

      Mr. Kenyang II,
      General Paul Malongdit can easily returns back to his old position than other loads of foreign puppets/stooges, thieves and traitors. All these bullsh*ts about Paul Malongdit having problems with current government are just mere incitements by some criminals who don’t know the real game. Remember, Paul Malongdit hails from Malual Giernyang (Malual Giernyang ’acin yic abeel’). Paul Malongdit and Malual Dinka/Jieng community knows what he is doing chap. Only you fellows outside South Sudan are behind of what is what in South Sudan>>>

        Anyway, South Sudanese people want peace, real peace. But there are some creeps in foreign circles like the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, their gulf Arab states financiers and even some of allies in the AU and even in our own IGAD which don’t want peace in South Sudan. Reunification of South Sudan and North Sudan is their end game. But our losers lowly informed politicians and huge illiterate citizenry just don’t know these dirty and cheap intrigues at the moment. But the fools would wake up like spook birds after they saw their masters they trust as their uncles or allies real intention over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people>>>>

          The African UN doesn’t another African independence from the then defunct ’organization of African unity (OAU). In the OAU manifesto, all the Europeans colonial borders should be respected. South Sudan independence was allowed by some African countries because there was nothing they could about it. We were to get our independence from any evil on earth, cum-sun, cum rain. And in 2011, we got our independence. But our losers came and fight over leadership like hungry dogs when our lands are being occupied by our existential enemy, our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan>>>

            These so-called arabs of North Sudan even say plainly that there cannot be *North Sudan without South Sudan and the South Sudanese people* And that is why their allies, the evil English people in the devil infested Island the UK, their gulf Arab states, their evil juus (so-called israelis), their UN, their NGOs, corporate America and some of their creeps here in our region who have been promised investments in exchange for South Sudan are utterly in complicit in the current mess in our country. The so-called brexit is being negotiated here over our country and our people>>>

              The UK leaving the European union (EU). Fellows, when Scotland tried to get independence from, the English parasites in London, they were short changed. Because the English parasites cannot stand alone without Scotland. But English parasites must accept facts and live with facts. No one considers an English man or woman here in the Dinkas/Monyjiengs of the Sudan country, never ever. Mr. Kenyang II. Malual Giernyang boys should just stay back a bit and us show these vermin their right place of our country and over people. We are going to occupy Kenya if these evils don’t remove their evils out ’Nanyuki and Laikipia’ in central Kenya. South Sudan is not part of evil so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, never has and wiil never ever wiil>>>

                And South Sudanese people the damned so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, subjects or slaves. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Mr. Biafra war between Northern Nigeria and Southern Nigeria was ’fought by British army on behave of Northern Nigeria, chap. Paul Malongdit showed the criminals from Northern Nigeria, Darfur and cloned arabs of North Sudan in Raja and Way Acholdit a few years ago. Mr. Kenyang II, that railway from El Khartoum to, Babanusa to South Darfur, to raja, Way Achdit and rest of South Sudan would be built by the evil English people? Just like standard gauged railway line from Nairobi to Mombasa that was built by Chinese company?>>>

                  Fellows, the evils love affair with our country and our people has gone too far. And the evils are going to be bombed to near oblivion out of our country and over and even out of Africa once and for all. Who would want to live side by side with an evil white Americans, English people, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, gulf Arab states financiers, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs and some of their creepy allies in between fellows, no one. Not even one>>>
