February 23, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The imposition of the state of emergency is as an attempt to buy time and quell the "revolution" said the Sudanese opposition forces in response to a speech by President Omer al-Bashir on Friday.

Al-Bashir called on the opposition groups to engage in dialogue with his government based on the National Document endorsed by the National Dialogue Conference in October 2016. Also, he vowed to be impartial and remain neutral in the management of the political process.

General Secretary of the opposition National Umma Party (NUP) Sarah Nugdallah said in a statement released Saturday that the president’s statement was "disappointing".

"The speech of the President of the Republic is clear and isolated procrastination intended to gain time only, and waiting for the unknown that will never come ... Therefore we are not concerned by its content because it is far from resolving the crisis."

Nugdallah further pointed out that the Sudanese can no longer be lured with the ministerial reshuffle and similar solutions.

"The rebellious street will no longer accept less than the departure of the regime, with all its figures, and without conditions," she said before to stress that the "National Umma Party stands with this demand firmly, and will continue its peaceful struggle with its masses, and its allies of the Forces of Freedom and Change to achieve this just demand".

The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) said the Sudanese president made the most deceptive speech at a political event ever.

The president tried to "circumvent the merits of the revolution by calling for a false national dialogue similar to the dialogue (of 2016)," said JEM spokesperson Mutasim Ahmed Saleh on Saturday.

He added that the president declared the state of emergency to unleash his security militias to kill the people and abuse them in order to "put down their glorious revolution".

"The movement rejects Bashir’s insulting speech, and calls on the masses of the Sudanese people to step up the struggle and on the forces of change to unite their ranks and form a united leadership abroad to support the interior," he proposed.

For his part, the SPLM-N Agar deputy chairman Yasir Arman said that the main purpose of Bashir’s speech is to suppress the Revolution through emergency measures and take full control of the organs of the state to prevent any independent role of the army or the Islamists.

"So, by the end of the one-year emergency period, the political theatre would be engineered to re-elect Bashir," he said.

Accordingly, he added that al-Bashir and his regime do not have solutions to the current crisis and continuing the revolution remains the only valid alternative.

"Al-Bashir’s speech is a declaration of the beginning of his defeat, the defeat of his regime and the beginning of the victory of the popular revolution," he asserted.

Also; The Sudan Liberation Movement - Minni Minnawi called to stand against the state of emergency and "continue the intifada until victory."

Al-Bashir resorted to old new tricks to confront the escalation of the mass "by announcing the state of emergency and the militarization of the government in preparation for a further confrontation with the street," said SLM-MM spokesperson Mohamed Hassan Haroun.

      Are you not in that crowd chap? There is no force powerful than the power foolish crowd it seems. The magic touch and TVs lenses were projected into Libya, CAR, here into South Sudan, DR Congo, Burundi and a few weeks ago, Zimbabwe. All these are about reforms and democracy? My arse. Some losers just don’t that they are being used by some clandestine foreign cabals with obscene and dirty intents. Anyway, l hope the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan handle their bullsh"ts with their foreign powers project. But we don’t want here South Sudan is not to welcome any evil that will connect our country to the evils, White Americans, English people, their evil juus (so-called israelis), gulf Arab states and any other creeps on earth that we don’t want in our country again>>>

        Many South Sudanese and cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan were celebrating when Mr. Barack Hussein Obama was elected in the US, a false Messiah considered to have relation with Africans or the Sudanese people. Well, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama came to Tanzania before he retired from his presidency of the US and "proclaimed, fire up Africa"! South Sudan, burned, Libya burned down and central republic (CAR). Northern Nigeria still burns. If you tell most of our lowly informed idiots are told to be a bit careful with the so-called regime changes when they don’t have better alternative in place. An idiot like Mr. Barack Obama and corporate handlers in Wall Street and Washington were only using him as a veneer to show some African fools and African-Americans that one of their own was elected to rule the Europeans and Americans>>>

          But for some African Americans in the know and some of us here in South Sudan in the know, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama waas a limousine president held at tight leash by his corporate America, evil juus (so-called israelis) and Washington insiders. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama after his tenure was allowed to tour the world as if campaign for the US third term elections by his handlers by letting him first go Scotland, other European capitals, New Zealand, Asia, Kenya and South Africa and point his hand North for democracy! My arse once again. Before all these, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and handlers use to ship some African young people to America, then so-called Young Africa Leadership initiative (YALI), were those young Africans were taken US universities for 6 months and told to come back to Africa to change their governments for their foreign masters who shipped them to US for 6 months>>>>

            We have killed these Barack Hussein Obama so-called Young Africans Leadership Initiative (YALI) here in South Sudan. Some of them have now stuck in Uganda, Kenya and Gambella region and they are reduced to barking on the internet about Salva Kiir this or Dinkas/Jenges that. But the losers can all they want with their Barack Hussein Obama and his handlers rege change of the government of Mr. Salva Kiir and his allies isn’t going to happen under the sun. Besides, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and his then regime even called South Sudan is "a US national security interest" Really!>>>

              Barack Hussein Obama came to Kenya and Abesh (so-called ethiopia) in 2015 and came selected some his sycophants in Africa of Rwanda, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Abesh (so-called ethipia) prime minister or Djibouti prime minister, Chad president, Nigerian president and North Sudan foreign minister since the US or European emporer didn’t want to be seen checking hands with Omar Hassan El Bashir indicted war criminal. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama then discussed South Sudanese conflict with his own chosen African leaders without South Sudanese leaders. I just wonder, how did Barack Hussein Obama and handlers thought they were to South Sudan and the South Sudanese people?>>>

                I hope Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, his evil juus (so-called israelis), Wall Street and Washington handlers would join his Pagan Amuom (who took full residency of then Barack Hussein Obama white house), Thomas Cirillo, Lam Akol and Riek Machar to in Khartoum, North Sudan to Mr. Omar Hassan El Bashir from power like Muormar El Gaddafi if they damned possibly can. But here in South Sudan. The evil white Americans, English people, evil juus (so-called israelis), cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) or even some Bantus here in our country. Reasons, pure HATRED and RAVISM. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and his handlers have resorted to phrases like "rising nationalism or intolerance" did the evils think, they will always use South Sudan and the South Sudanese people as their ’barometers to test their racial tolerant around the world’?>>>

                  Barack Hussein Obama and his handlers even brought their criminal, Thabo Mbeki to come and convince South Sudanese, Nuba Mountains, Abyei Ngok Dinkas/Jiengs and Southern Blue Nile to live side by side with their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, their gulf Arab financiers, their evil juus (so-called israelis), Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), some Bantus and even white Americans, English people and some their evil allies that the evils think, they can come and resettle here in our country. Fellows, the evils love affair with our country and our people has gone too far and the evils are going to be bomb to near oblivion out of our country and our of the whole of Africa>>>>

                    Who says we want the evil white Americans, English people, evil juus (so-called israelis) and some of creeps in South Sudan? Not even one, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Fellows, South Sudan is not part of the so-called damned ANGLO-AMERICAN empire, never has and will never damned will. And South Sudanese people are not so-called damned ANGLO-AMERICA subjects, never have and will never. The criminals can go and join their Riek Machar magician in Khartoum, North Sudan and move their magicians and superstitions else where. Here in South Sudan though, their magician intrigues are aren’t welcomed into South Sudan>>>

                      The reasons as to why many South Sudanese people became disillusioned with the evils in the US, the UK and some of their creep allies in between was the way they lie about everything about South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. That South Sudan was created with the US dollars, that without the US, there would not be South Sudan and loads of other lies and lies. When the SPLA was about to marched to Khartoum in late 1990th, the US, the UK and their allies sponsored their Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Adwok Nyabe and other bunch of foreign puppets to rock the boat in middle of their 2992 coup against the SPLM/A>>>>

                        And this was precisely because SPLM/A under Dr. John Garang was considered a Communist or socialist movement and deemed dangerous to European, the US and allies interest in Africa. Jaffer Nimeri, Suara El Daub, Saddiq El Mahadi and Omar Hassan El Bashir were armed and supported against the SPLM/A. *Arming both sides to achieve the desired results for the evils in Europe, their US and their creepy allies in between in other words. Now, the same US. the US and their allies are back to their old ways, stick their usual bullsh*ts over South Sudan and South Sudanese people, their Riek Machar. Lam Akol, Adwok Nyabe darlings to regime change the Mr. Salva Kiir government. The US, the UK and their allies even have their new recruits of Mr. Pagan Amuom, Majak Agoot, Thomas Cirillo and other bunch of traitors, thieves and foreign puppets who have sold themselves and their souls to evil Europeans, gulf Arab states, cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, evil juus (so-called israelis) and some of their evils here in Africa and region. And the fools think, they can also sell our country and our people to their foreign masters. Good luck to the evils and their foreign masters>>>

                          South Sudan is not for sale. The evils in the US, the UK and some of creepy allies even called these losers "Dr. John Garang boys to use to achieve their reunification of South Sudan and North Sudan?!!. Traitors, foreign puppets and thieves like Mr. Majak Agoot, Pagan Amuom, Thomas Cirillo and other bunch of fools refused to go to Khartoum, North Sudan with their fools like Mr. Riek Machar and Lam Akol for negotiations with Mr. Salva Kiir regime as was demanded by their foreign masters. But to be remain Nairobi, Kenya and and other foreign capitals to save face that traitors and foreign puppets are not parts of grand treason over our country and our people. Fellows, watch this space, you are going to be killed with your foreign masters out of our country>>>>

                            Once and for all. The evils thought that they can bring their evil white Americans, English people, evil juus (so-called Israelis) and some of their creeps in to our country. We are going to Kenya and half of Abesha (so-called ethiopia), Djibouti into red sea with evil white Americans and allies army bases to get back our Gambella region., reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. By the way, I am the one who will help North Sudan and Eastern Jerusalem. But all these cheap and dirty intrigues about North Sudan are just just show. Fellows, watch out. South Sudan is not part of so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, nor are South Sudanese people the evils subjects or slaves>>>>
