South Sudan’s ceasefire largely holding, says UN chief

September 15, 2019 (JUBA) - The ceasefire between South Sudan government and the armed opposition faction (SPLA-IO) remains intact, underscored by their efforts against National Salvation Front (NAS) rebels, Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General said.

In a report to the Security Council, said government and SPLA-IO have been able to contain NAS on the ground, including by pushing them from areas where they had control over resources.

“Fighting in Payai, outside Lobonok, at the end of July resulted in NAS ceding control of a gold-mining area to SPLA-IO forces,” he said.

The report largely blames the NAS faction led by Thomas Cirillo of being behind the primary causes of insecurity as well as the high levels of violent crime owing to the secondary effects of the conflict.

Guterres, in his report on South Sudan, also pointed to the alleged recruitment within NAS and cross-border movement of their forces in Western Equatoria region to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and from Eastern Equatoria to Uganda, among others.

“In Eastern Equatoria, NAS activity has been limited to cross-border areas around greater Magwe, where ethnic alliances provide a small area of allegiance,” partly reads the UN chief’s report.

Meanwhile, the Secretary General’s reports also highlighted the detentions of suspected NAS collaborators by the National Security Service and South Sudanese army in the Greater Equatoria region.

It further said government and SPLA-IO operations have induced displacement and fear and heightened mistrust of state security forces, as illustrated by the razing of some 60 tukuls in Torit West.

South Sudan descended into war in mid-December 2013 when Kiir accused his former deputy-turned rebel leader accused of plotting a coup.

In September 2018, the rival factions involved in the conflict signed a peace deal to end the conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced over 2 million people in the country.

The power-sharing arrangements under the deal were supposed to take effect in May, but the process was delayed by six months until November as both sides disagreed on security arrangements.

    That is precisely how a guerrila outfit operates - nimble and mobile. Let’s see how jenge and nyigats will stay in cantonments when they will be kept following NAS....

        Start lying again here about Torit mutiny. Torit mutiny started in 1955 by Equatorians, fact, but it died down very quickly, it never last for a year and all Equatorians who started it ran to Uganda to hide like Cirillo of NAS now who is hiding on Addis, then Gordon Mayen ( Mourtat) formed his Provisional Govt, he was a president when Lagu was selected by Dinkas, then Israel support.

          Talking about Lagu, Lagu was a captain in Sudanese army when he joined the movement. He took vacation and then never reported back to Sudanese army. Talking about Tonj been a place where Dinkas met Lagu is a lie. Emanual Abour Matongdit was a student at University of Khartoum. Albino Akol Akol was a student at Rumbek Secondary School. What will take them to Tonj?

            Another lie you said yesterday is that Lagu purchased guns from Israel, what a lie!!!! Anya Nya one had no single penny to buy a pistol. Israel supported us at that time because they want to punish Khartoum government which sent troops to Egypt to fight Israel. Late Emanuel Abour Matongdit went to Israel to cut the deal, keep lying jubaone.

          So when it died down jienges took over? That is history taught in jienge bush schools for jienges. Give us facts, not "agamlong crap". Never heard that jienges took over Anyanya liberation struggle. They came in as latecomers only to claim benefits for undone work 😲.

          But Gordon Moutat fled to UK till his death. How did he as president allow his senior officer Lagu to conclusively sign the AAA in 1972? This is cheap jienge lies that doesn’t add up. Try doing better research ya kaffir.

            Stupid old man who does not know anything about South Sudan. Gordon Mourtat left for London in 1972 because he was so angry about 1972 agreement. The all world knows that except a few Stupid Equatorians in the net. When Lagu signed 1972 peace Gordon Mourtat was no longer a president of Provisional Government of Southern Sudan. I am dealing with a very stupid Equatoria old man.

              If you are about 40 yrs or less then you were born in 1979 or after that. Too young to be intelligent, too old to be that idiot without historical proof. Ok. Gordon Muortat fled in 1972. Who succeeded him? How did he allow Lagu to supercede him? Do you now agree Lagu conspired against and screwed him? Lagu the smart Equatorian used jienges as tools then KOKORA 😂

                You are dump ass. Lagu was selected by Dinak commanders when Israel gave conditions not to release any gun to politicians. Dinkas gave leaders to Lagu and Gordon Mourtat was out. When Addis Ababa Agreement was signed in 1972 Gordon Mourtat was not a leader anymore, but he opposed Addis Agreement from Uganda. East Africa countries told him to leave their countries. He left for London.

        You already have "feace" and "oyol" is flowing, so what peace again? There’s no more fighting in Nuerlands, so why are Nuer IDPs in Juba PoC so terrified like chicken and can’t return? Why are jienges still in Kakuma, Darfur, S. Kordofan and can’t return to their ancestral lands? Funny! NAS is not there. No free "nyamnyam"?

          Wrong,wrong,wrong!Torit uprising in August 1955(I hate to say the word ’mutiny’) didn’t die away according to your wicked poor time assessments.It did not fade way,die out or lose its revolutionary spirit against the arab oppressors henceforth.We all agree, that it was the seed that later on gave birth to all subsequent struggles that led to the independence of this country,S.Sudan..

                    I do believe you were sleeping. Gordon Mayen died with clean hands. He refused 1972 agreement because it didn’t meet South Sudan freedom. To try to drag his good name in dirt is a monkey works. Torit 1955, Provisional Government of Gordon Mayen, Anya Nya 1, 1972 agreement and SPLA are all led to South Sudan freedom we enjoyed today. But Torit in 1955 last for a few months and died.

            NAS is defeated and without people. Fine, did NAS chase you to Kenya to live as a refugee? Is NAS responsible that jienges cant return to their ancestral lands but rather hang out in Equatoria like landless baboons? Is NAS responsible for the Nuers fear of returning to their areas but hide in Juba PoC? Worthless miscreant and loser. Answer NOW, kaffir.

                That you can’t reveal your state or region suggests one thing: a jellaba bastard who belongs to nowhere but everywhere. Even wandering baboons return to their specific sleeping places after a hard day’s food search. You jienges dont. So,your jienge father didn’t tell you where he was from? Perhaps a Baggara slave. Now you slave son is wasting my time, ya jienge kaffir.

      If this report were true, both the jienge regime abd IO should start repartriating both jienges and Nuers to their ancestral lands, so that Equatorian returnees can also get back to their ancestral lands. Why are Nuers still hiding in Juba PoCs? Why are jienges still hiding in Nimule? Afterall DS is now peaceful. Something is false.

        The motivation of the Kiir-Machar agenda-less meeting is, Kiir wants more foot soldiers from Machar’s SPLA-IO to stave off the emerging military campaigns from the hold-out forces..

        Dr. Machar as a prisoner of the IGAD, is largely in agreement with ANYTHING Kiir (as directed by Museveni) puts to him. Machar’s house is not in agreement with shifting SPLA-IO HQs to Juba.

          As I recently alluded,Riek is mentally, psychologically and physically wrecked. He is an empty shell of himself and will "unconditionally surrender". The house arrest in S.Africa and Sudan is having serious effects on him. Who knows how he will escape this time, if he messes up with NAS. The route to DRC is currently a death trap.

You can also say, he was Nimeri’s best friend and all sorts of jienge bullshit. We in Equatoria know Abel Alier and we even named some fish "Abu rubuta" after him.
