August 18, 2019 (JUBA) - A South Sudanese opposition party has congratulated the people of Sudan on the “historic” signing of the country’s political agreement and the constitutional declaration.

In a statement issued Sunday, South Sudan National Democratic Alliance (SSNDA), said the historic moment is a testimony to the heroic struggle for freedom, peace, and justice that led the Sudanese people against dictatorship and human rights abuses.

“We salute you for your determination and commitment to restore democracy, and marking a new chapter for freedom, peace, and justice in Sudan,” partly reads SSNDA’s statement.

Sudan’s main opposition coalition and the ruling military council have formally signed a final power-sharing deal, paving the way for a transition to a civilian-led government.

The landmark agreement signed on Saturday in the capital Khartoum came after a long period of negotiations following the overthrow of longtime leader President Omar al-Bashir in the wake of mass protests.

The deal was inked between Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, deputy chief of the Transitional Military Council (TMC), and Ahmed al-Rabie, who represented the Alliance for Freedom and Change umbrella group.

The power-sharing deal creates a joint military and civilian sovereign council to rule for a little over three years until elections can be held.

According to provisions of the deal, a military leader would head the 11-member council for the first 21 months, followed by a civilian leader for the next 18 months.

The ceremony was attended by heads of states, prime ministers and dignitaries Kham several countries, including Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and South Sudanese President Salva Kiir.

    And this is what the world doesn’t understand about South Sudan!

    Klem Ryan rightly called Kiir and idiot who is being used by the region for their own gains. Let Kiir show cause by going to Addis Ababa and talk to his nemisis or he remains an IDIOT for life!

      Jellabas may fight but in the end, they sit together and talk. In our case, jienges can’t talk, are more emotional than reasonable and will fight even if that means SS goes to the dogs. That is what we should go for a total destruction of SS and each ethnicity takes care of itself. Now, in 1,5,10,50 or 100 yrs, SS must be completed destroyed cuz it has become rotten.

          The best the war has brought about is, over 80% of all jienges are squatting outside their territories with no hope of ever returning. They have practically no "homes" except Juba which they must defend. The war has halted jienge pervasion and uncontrolled vagrancy in Equatoria as long as our "boys" control all roads in and out of Juba, that is great. No to peace till jienges quit.

          Under your control? Read about events in War Ayen? Did you try traveling from Juba to your jiengestan Jonglei recently? Did you try traveling to Yei or Maridi? Feel free my "jienge", all under your control. So why keep preaching peace in Nairobi when you could go everywhere in SS freely? Dont be a coward, monyjienges are very brave 😨

            It was very tiny incident in War Ayen which we overcome in 2 minutes. Nice fish is coming from Bor to Juba every morning. Yei road, People in Lanyia are asking our government to help them with teachers. Maridi is ours, South Sudan is ours, Juba is ours. There were two mass shooting in USA in August 2019, more than 30 people were killed, but still USA is a safe country, right? Iam laughing

I thought you would be help your nyors move goods and food to BG for your starving monyjienges. I can see, you have good fantasies and delusional liar. Good luck in your travels and control of SS.

                SSUF is a jienge movement. This Lol minister is a jienge muslim who only thinks of food, just like the rest of you. How else will he feed his family? He was not even sure why he joined SSUF in the first place. No different from nyagats. Once hungry, they crawl back with their tails tagged-in like house dogs for meatless bones, ggrhhh!

                  Lol State minister Omar is not a Dinka man. He is from Raja.

                  "A former information minister in South Sudan’s Lol State broke away from General Paul Malong’s rebel movement and returned to Juba Monday.
                  Omar Ishag Mohammed joined the South Sudan United Front (SSUF) led by former military chief, Paul Malong Awan in May 2018."

              Ofcourse everything is yours and that is why the SS is like a shithole. Dont stuff too much food into your mouth, cuz you may not be able to chew it, it will choke you. Kindly send us web links on progress and development in these jienge controlled areas for our readers. Ahh, dont forget good photos of "nice fish".

          I thought you were selling and hawking some green vegetables to make ends meet. I understand when stolen $ are not disbursed urgently to your end. Oh short-legged Bantu bastard I hope you know where your jienge dad hails from. Do some DNA, could turn out that you’re a Somalian or at worst a Darfurian fugitive.😂

      Sing, dance, cry, scream and the likes, but South Sudan is in our hands, remember that when you think. Bring it on, we are waiting. Anyone who peace in South Sudan MUST come Juba and meet with kiir. It’s that simple.

        The Egyptian pharaohs, the Romans, European colonial powers, S. African boers and apartheid, Saddam Hussein, Omar Bashir, Gadhaffi all shared the same views, today all is just history. Jienges must be prepared and we will NEVER let you rest till your jiengelands are turned into empty lands for the sick, dying and foolish even million years.

          You are very poor in making good points old man. European colonial powers left Africa because it was so expensive to them. S. Africa was cleared because the west wants it to be that why. Saddam, he messed up with oil and USA will not tolerate that. Gadhaffi. He messed up with west. Omar Bahsir he mixed oranges and apples ( Turkey, Iran, Qatar, Saudi)

          Now your desperation is showing again. You have been singing this song even before Mr. Riek Machar and his losers 13/12/2013 foiled coup. Where are you going to take the Jenges to in their country chap? As for your Omar Al Bashir or Gaddaffi, Saddam Hussein removed from power? Who cares?

            Where are they now Mr. jubaone chap? They were just bunch of losers recruited in the European or American capitals and thrown into fire to fight a non-existent democracy. For Saddam Hussein removable from power by your European, the US and their so-called israel attack dog. How is the democracy in Iraq going now mister?

In Afghanistan, your US, the UK and their allies went and bombed a wrong country in 2001 when the ’terrorists’ who brought down the world trade centre were 17 of them Saudi Arabians jubaone loser>>>>

                and 17 years later, democratizing the Afgan people by your US, the UK and their allies is just as remote as ever. I read a few weeks ago that your US is even negotiating with the Talibans, there we go! By the way Mr. jubaone, the reason, your US, the UK and their allies invaded Afghanistan was nothing to do with fighting terrorism>>>

                  democratizing Afghanistan, it was all about ’opium drug’ Mr. jubaone loser. Your US, the UK and their allies allies are drug creeps. Mr. jubaone, why do you called yourself ’jubaone’? You mean you will take ’J1 (Jubaone)?’ by force from Mr. Salva Kiir? Ask your Riek Machar what happened at Juabone complex in 2016?

                    As a coward and settler, you really don’t have a place called home. Once driven by floods in the early 60s your kin crawled to us Bari where we offered them Juba na Bari, later corrupted to Thongpiny to enable them live and work for us like slaves. Take it or leave it.J1 is a temporal domicile cuz the kiirminal can’t and won’t dare go back to his luak. You’re trash without us.
