Don’t let Uganda’s President Museveni destroy South Sudan

SSHURSA urges international community to disallow President Museveni destroying South Sudan

The South Sudan Human Rights society for Advocacy (SSHURSA) calls upon the sincere members of the international Community and the African Union to disallow Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has already prepared to destroy South Sudan.

Considering President Museveni as one of the key central figures in IGAD-Peace led mediation and reconciliation over South Sudan’s recent crisis, is a terrible miscalculation by the regional body, the IGAD and unforgivable betrayal of the people of South Sudan by the international Community. The United States and British Governments as well as other nations should rise up to prevent more bloodbaths fueled by Mr. Museveni in South Sudan. President Museveni is known by many South Sudanese citizens as partial, one sided self-proclaimed mediator and great mouth in meddling in South Sudan’s internal politics and security matters. For the last one year, he had been accused by sections of citizens in South Sudan and Uganda Parliament as a man who encourages crises in the South Sudan’s ruling SPLM party internal affairs as he has been allged of misadvising South Sudanese President Salva Kiir to listen to no one but believing in military might of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces to back up the latter’s own military guards against any internal political critics.

Against that background, Mr. Museveni cannot be one of the mediators on South Sudanese internal crises as he has always been known by sane South Sudanese and Ugandans of his partiality by taking unilateral military decision to deploy UPDF to fuel violence in South Sudan.

SSHURSA recommends the following:

  1. Calls on the International Community should strongly condemn and urge Mr. Museveni to stop meddling in South Sudanese internal affairs and restraint him from uttering statements that don’t serve purpose of peace and reconciliation in South Sudan but fueling violence
  1. Urges Mr. Museveni to stop moblizing IGAD countries to destroy South Sudan militarily under the claim of fighting SPLA forces against Juba under former South Sudan’s VP Riek Machar.
  1. Urges Uganda Parliament to pass a motion against illegal deployment of UPDF to call on Mr. Museveni to withdraw them from South Sudan before it is regarded as forces of occupation.
  1. SSHURSA urges sane members of South Sudan Legislative Assembly to pass a motion against the deployment of Uganda’s troops in South Sudanese soil which fuels internal conflict.
  1. SSHURSA calls upon IGAD to pursue peace and reconciliation by discussing root causes of crises with the ruling party SPLM rather than taking sides to further deep wounds among the South Sudanese people who are well educated in what has been going in South Sudan and how the current crises started.
  1. Calls upon international human rights groups and people of good will to expose and condemn Museveni’s acts of partiality that is fueling crises in South Sudan and throwing Great Lakes region into crises. Any sane human being must ask; if Museveni’s UPDF failed to defeat the rebellion of Nothern Uganda Joseph Konyi’s Lord Resistance Army for over 20 years, what miracle would he have to be successful in foreign land if not yearn for organized anarchy in South Sudan to divert the intention of Ugandans from their own internal governance crises?
  1. SSHURSA also calls upon international community to pressure on President Salva Kiir to release the 11 political detainees he alleged of staging a coup against him. The release will pave way for dialogue between him and his former deupty Riek Machar.
  1. SSHURSA calls upon UN to create buffer zone between the fighting forces to prevent more escalation of violence and pressure the two leaders for talks genuinely meant to bring sanity, peace and true reconciliation to South Sudan.
  1. Calls upon Uganda and South Sudanese civil society to stage demonstrations against iilegal deployment of UPDF in South Sudan.
  1. Finally, SSHURSA condemns the violence and the irresponsible SPLM dictatorship that has thrown the country into deep insecurities and also pays deep condolences to all families for the loss of dear ones in the senseless war.

    Instead of the press, there is need to see and check the authenticity of the SSHURSA, its composition and impartiality in the South Sudan politics. There is also need to verify the credibility and closed relationship of Hilde Johnson- UN Special representative with one of the senior SS politicians-Wife/concubine relationship.

      Kim Deng,
      Please, make reasonable comment like someone having brain.
      1. There is no what you call "Nuer nation" on this planet.
      2. Dinka didn’t declare war on "Nuer nation" as you claim.
      3. It is your uncle Dr. Fool Riek Machar who declared war on elected government and believes that it can be toppled by one tribe militarily.
      4. Only two commanders from Nuer tribe declared their support to Riek

        I said yesterday that let South Sudan bleed for at least three more months to see who is who. Dr. Fool will never rule South Sudan on my watch. Believe me or not. Dr. Fool Riek Machar & his associates must be ready to suck my d—k. Got that? We are gonna prove the fucking Ngundeng’s prophecy wrong, not only for this generation but for generations to come.

          Dr. Fool Riek Machar believes that releasing detainees will make his political ambition legitimate, encourage more defections and the other 62 tribes "might" join the senseless rebellion. Dr. Fool has never been patient to learn how the government operates in Khartoum and in Juba or around the world. Dr. Fool believes that one tribe can topple govt. militarily and rule at any cost.

            Suleiman or siliman,
            Wish you good luck on arrival to Juba. We have been waiting since last week. Why does it take long to reach Juba while it didn’t take us that long to reach Bor and Bentiu where Dr. Fool’s forces are hiding? We don’t live or survive on internet/phone propaganda without reaching the destination. Is Juba stationary or mobile city that keeps moving away from you?
