March 11, 2019 (JUBA) - The SPLM/A in Opposition in Yei River State said frustrated with the denial of access by South Sudanese authorities in Yei River State to UN humanitarian coordination agency to assess the needs of civilians in Kupera area.

"The leadership of SPLM/SPLA (IO) in Yei River State registers its disappointment over the reckless and condemnable action of Emmanuel Khamis, Commissioner of Kupera County of violently blocking access to UN OCHA-led assessment mission to Koyoki and Birigo in Lainya County on 06/03/2019," said the SPLM-IO spokesperson in Yei Wayi Godwill Edward.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, Edward said it was the second time that Khamis hinders a humanitarian assessment by the UN OCHA in the same area where live thousands of affected civilians.

"This action is in gross violation of the R-ARCSS and International Humanitarian Law," he emphasized.

The South Sudanese government is accused of attacking the positions of the non-signatory armed groups in the area, hindering humanitarian access and imposing inappropriate taxes on aid workers.

The SPLM/IO spokesperson hailed the efforts of the UN humanitarian staff to reach the war affected civilians despite the threats they are facing during the implementation of their mandate.

He further called on the ceasefire monitoring body, CTSAAM, and the UN Mission in South Sudan "to investigate Emmanuel Khamis for blatantly violating the R-ARCSS and hold him personally accountable".

    I am so frustrated when I hear and see a country like ours full of resources and its people still complaining and crying for food! Sometimes I ask myself. What is really going on or wrong with us? Is it jealousy? Is it because someone wants to showing up as an important? Is it because someone wants to show that he/she is educated? Or is it because of what?

      Commissioner Khamis does not know his roles as commissioner, how should you deny humanitarian access to your own civilians? the guy does,t deserve to be commissioner.

        Midit Mitot,
        No wonder most of you Nuer fools are refusing to get the hell out of the filthy so-called UN compounds in Juba, here in Nor, Akoba, Anasir, Malakal, your Bentiu, Mayendit and Leer? You want others to be feed Genetically modified foods (GMF) while you fools fight for your Ngungdeng Buong superstitions. Watch out piece of trash. By the way, there is no damned so-called SPLM/A-IO in Yei>

The people who feed you fools are not the UK, the UK or France or their evil juus (so-called Israel); it is Japan and some gulf Arab states and some rich Europeans, Arabs, Indians, even Africans, Asians and others are ones that pay the whole UN operations around the world. And these criminals often lie to the world that the US, the UK>>>

          France, their UN, NGOs and their evil juus (so-called israelis). Mr. Midit Mitot,your Riek Machar lie the UN in 1991 after he made his Ngundeng Buong superstitions blunder that the Nuers were being targeted by the DInkas/Jaangs simply because you were Nuers. Many of you fools including none refugees from our Gambella region were resettled in Europe, Canada or Australia. Again, your ’gat’ Machar>>>

    Kiir made it clear during his Bahr el Ghazal tour that only South Sudanese exist in that region, the rest are monkeys and therefore non-South Sudanese! The scortch-earth policy in Yei and Amadi is deliberate, soldier on!

      Eastern,

      Please stop lying. Kiir never said anything of that kind you are trying to make up. people of Yei are our people and they due deserve respect like others South Sudanese. I don’t want war, but if a monkey like Cirillo is hiding outside South Sudan and encourage a few monkeys to terrorize people of Yei, government of South Sudan has constitution right to protect its territory from traitors

        Kiir told his audiances in Wau that he did not know that South Sudanese left the country because of war! Kiir is still recruiting dinka young men even after he signed peace! Kiir leaves in Juba but doen’t know how his commanders treat his soldiers in Bilpam! Now who is a traitor, Kiir or the monkeys?!

          The traitors are monkeys who refuse to accept peace and they want to destroy our country.. As for recruitment of young men. All army recruitments in the world are filled by young men including USA. As for reason our people ran to Uganda, there are two reasons. 1- War. 2- Monkeys encouraged innocent people to run to Uganda so that UN can take over our country.

          It’s only in South Sudan that a person SIGNS an agreement and reneges on it, Anjelina Teny is advising Kiir to use the oil proceeds to implement the signed pact. Even then, the new regime won’t be set up by May 12, 2019. Kiir doesn’t like this peace, I hope you don’t have him in mind as one with "dull and crook in mind"....?!

            This peace will prevail forever, spoilers have blacklisted already by JMEC and the International community. We are proceeding with that signed peace whether there are some who does,t comply with. Kiir and Dr Machar are one now get clear information from me right away.

              Kiir and Dr. Machar are one now. I have got!

              But be reminded that there are OTHER people, including monkeys, in the country as well. Dr. Machar fled to the Congo when that JMEC man was in Juba under the watch of the "international community". What has changed now? Dr. Machar may have become something but Kiir remains Kiir....!

        Uh🙊..uh🙊..uh🙊..and the baboon is confused. It thinks it can be human but is intellectually incapacitated. Since when did this creature show pity for Yei people? Then go straight to Yei State and help in providing help. Maybe this time, baboons will help monkeys. That would be a novelty. Jienge.

            In monkeys we trust...! After sucrificing many a jenge youth just to remain in J1, Malong now wants "direct talks" with the JCE Regime in Juba. Malong is quite aware of the cries of families of the many young men lost/missing in action for which he can’t account - Malong now wants to have Kiir as partner as the day of reckoning approaches..!

              Uh🙊..uh🙊..🙊..here goes our talking baboon. Instead of concentrating in developing his (hopefully he has a tree 🎄 top as house), our talking baboon has empathy for Yei people. Didn’t imagine such baboons were sentimental. But kokora is a moving train and NAS/PDM/SSNMC have gotten it moving. Already jienge squatters in Gbudue State have sent SOS signals to Juba for urgent help.

              Well, we Equatorians don’t care whether this jienge fugitive Malong comes back to Juba or not. After all, all jienge opposition is worthless cuz all profess the jienge agenda. We just have to be very careful NEVER to enter into any political alliances with them. They are betrayers, hoodwinkers and evil. NAS/PDM/SSNMC must follow our own agenda. Case closed. Next

              Are you sure you in monkeys you trust? Malong will accept peace, Cirillo will accept peace and the other guy from PDM will accept peace, peace for all.
