August 1, 2019 (JUBA) - The National Salvation Front (NAS) leadership is not aware of any planned arrangement for peace talks with the Juba government in Juba, the rebel group has said.

The response from the holdout opposition group came in the wake of recent media reports attributed to the Archbishop of Episcopal Church of South Sudan for Internal Province of Central Equatoria State, Paul Yugusuk while speaking at Emmanuel Cathedral last Sunday.

But, in a statement issued Thursday, NAS’s spokesperson, Suba Samuel Manase denied receiving any official correspondence of interest from Episcopal Church of South Sudan Internal Province of Central Equatoria State or from the Archbishop for any mediation.

He said the Archbishop’s visit in mid-2018 to the NAS camp was granted purely on religious ground, not politics or peace mediation.

“The National Salvation Front (NAS) is a member of South Sudan National Democratic Alliance (SSNDA) which has a clear position on the R-ARCSS [Revitalized Agreement on Resolution of South Sudan Conflict] and the root causes of the conflict in the Republic of South Sudan that requires credible and inclusive peace negotiation, so as to attain a just and sustainable peace in the country,” said Manase.

“This position equally has been shared with the leadership of South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC) early this year in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia,” he added.

The official said NAS and SSNDA strongly believe the church has a moral role to play to contribute in bringing peace to the country.

“While NAS welcomes such gesture of mediation from the church and probably from any well-wisher, we urge such efforts be conducted through the right channels,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, the group said areas under its control are open for humanitarian agencies and religious leaders on pastoral visits.

“NAS would like to assure its members and the public at large that the leadership will always utilize its official channels of communication to reach out to its members in matters pertaining to peace negotiation and mediation plans if tall there is any peace negotiation plan at hand,” further noted Manase.

NAS, rebel group led by General Thomas Cirillo, was one of the armed opposition groups that did not signed last year peace deal.

In May, South Sudan’s rival parties agreed on a six-month extension to implement next steps in the fragile peace agreement. The extension came after the main opposition group threatened to boycott formation of a unity government initially planned for May 12.

    Great NAS,ab
    If R-ARCSS has failed to get implemented, Riek is still a prisoner, no cantonment, number of states not decided upon, system of governance not clear..etc. why should NAS waste time with this jienge-nyagat bullshit? NAS should just focus on EQUATEXIT period

      Jubaone,

      I agreed, Dr Machar still under confinement, no clear cantonment areas, no security arrangement yet, then we need to watch. but don,t talk Nyagat, there is nothing like that since oppositions are running the same objectives.

      Jubaone,Eastern,

      The Vatican recently allocated dollars for priests/bishops in South Sudan to lure ’holdout groups’(as they call it) to join the fake peace,..this is flawed!NAS should never accept such nonsense.If Kiir and his jienges can rape,terrorize and massacre other tribes in S.Sudan with impunity and despite all that,be tenderly kissed by the pope or warmly accommodated by the drought.....

        ..company IGAD,then something is fundamentally wrong here!NAS should never ever entertain jienges foul approaches through church leaders or rogue politicians.See,we are all good christians,but will never betray our dead or living with such bullshit.We have chosen to protect ourselves/communities by all means necessary, the Bible and GUNs!No games!

          Thank you both for the input. Such a worthless Bishop like Paul Yugusuk should just keep quiet. Where was he, when hoards of uncircumcised anyoor savages and bastards went on a raping spree of defenceless Equatorian women? Where was he, as jienge barbarians were killing innocent civilians? Paul Yugusuk is a jienge surrogate, a bootlicker who has compromised his morals.

            This ’Bishop’ Paul Yugusuk, going by another nickname, ABUNA KABASA - the lying priest, is a big fraud! His Lulubo women were raped enmass by Mathiang Anyor in the recent past. When has he become the spokesperson of NAS?! ABUNA KABASA, wasaka...!

                This tailless jienge chimp 🐵 South South would be credited, if he went and consolidated this jienge "peace" in his shithole luak by doing some farming or running naked after cows. But the "big baby" is comfortable living in Kenya and be fed and shithole cleaned. Worthless cockroaches living at the expense of others. Just human thrash.

                  That jienge garbage called’South South’ can’t tell us his birthplace b’cos he has none.He was most probably born under a lalop tree somewhere in the middle of nowhere back in Abyei.A true disgusting filth with no fix point in life.These facts surely correspond to 98% birthplaces of all jienge bastards now loitering in Juba and many other major towns in the country.Today here, tomorrow..

Tell us your birthplace and village,and we shall tell you who you are. Country booming,nyagat Ezekiel said that, but doesn’t even have a tukul in his village for his mother. Running rat!🐀

                  You talk like a prostitution Karo woman. In any country, you develop your capital first. This is true everywhere in the world. We are developing Juba first and we are enjoying it. For you, Eastern, The Rhino and NAS, go to the hell, we are not concern of anything you say. Why did you run away from US and leave the country for us? Isn’t it because you are coward?

                    If our women were prostitutes, uncircumcised filthy jienge rapists would not go raping everywhere unless of course they have no money and want free things. Come to Jebel market and see for yourself cheap Nyanjienges on display. You get "muorjinge for 100 SSP" like the muor girshen in the old days in Wau. In Nairobi, they’re called "Black Gold or Black bush meat" 😃

How can uncultured savages talk of development when you have even NO word for development in thokjienge? Human thrash. Just eat, shit, sleep and fuck like all low creatures. That is the best you can do.

                    Peace can only come once the last jienge quits or is busted out of Equatoria, anything else is jienge thrash. NAS must not even allow any non Equatorian within its ranks cuz they are traitors, dull and have no value addition to us. Having them in Equatoria, we could as well have monkeys and donkeys that will entertain us or draw for us water from the Nile.

                      NAS must always stay focused.Its a survival war in South Sudan.We must procure what is ours and protect all what belongs to our communities to the bitter end.NAS’s high command must exclusively be composed of uncompromisingly mean hardliners from Equatoria.Those unique chosen ones who dearly love ancestral Equatoria.Equatoria is our Jerusalem,no one will ever take it away from us........
