Egyptian intelligence coordinated with Khartoum to assassinate S. Sudan’s Kiir: cable


June 19, 2015 (WASHINGTON) – The Saudi embassy in Khartoum informed their government that they have received information on a joint plot by the Egyptian and Sudanese intelligence to assassinate South Sudan president Salva Kiir.

Wikileaks published on Friday more than 60,000 diplomatic cables from Saudi Arabia and said on its website it would release half a million more in the coming weeks.

According to one of the cables, the embassy was made aware of three Egyptian intelligence officers who were dispatched by Cairo and are staying in Garden City neighbourhood.

The goal is to formulate a plan with Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) to assassinate Kiir and an unidentified number of his aides, the undated cable said.

The leaked cable about the joint assassination plot against Kiir was issued by the foreign ministry in Riyadh and addressed to the royal palace.

No other details were given in the cable signed by former Saudi foreign minister Saud al-Faisal.

    You Saudis, if you attempt to kill our president, the dinka warriors will march to Riyadh; kill your king and replace him with a military general.Eyptian and you coward Saudis are no match to black warriors, we only respect Kurds and Sunis because they are the only one who can stand against us.

        It’s a ridiculous claim but unlike others, we actually fought the enemy and lost over a million of our kin doing so. You defended oilfields at the behest of your masters in Khartoum because it was better than dying like the Dinka that opposed them. We allowed you to return in 2006 after you served Khartoum for decades. It’s clear who the cowards are.

          You didn’t fight on multiple fronts. You weren’t targeted by Khartoum. You didn’t starve to death in apocalyptic, artificial famines. You didn’t lose a million people. You didn’t provide the bulk of the battalions, divisions and martyrs. You worked for Khartoum. You are in no position to brand the Dinka cowards.

            Over the eighteen years of the war, half of the two million estimated deaths are thought to be Dinka, bringing their current population to approximately three million out of Sudan’s total estimated population of twenty-six million.

              In 1988, the SPLM and international human rights organizations accused the Sudanese government of attempted genocide of the Dinka. Modern military equipment, including helicopters and cargo planes adapted as bombers, were used to devastating effect against Dinka villages, and more than 1 million Dinka are believed to have died in the conflict.

                ..Khartoum bombed our areas, unleashed Arab militias that destroyed crops, stole livestock and made the planting seasons all but untenable all throughout the duration of the war. Khartoum created artificial famines in our lands. We lost 250, 000 people in 1988 alone. We then lost another 100, 000 in 1998 when certain tribes were being fed like dogs...

        Just because you Nuer food lovers failed to change Juba government does not mean others will not.The issue here is,I hit the wrong people[ Saudis are not part of this devious,hopeless plan] rather the real culprits are these filthy Arabs of Egpt and Sudan. They want to repeat what they did to late Garang. since Garange revenges were directed at innocent Arab traders in Khartuom.

      The Iranians were apparently involved in the 2012 ’Heglig’ war. Our forces were bombed from the air by the Iranians. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/20/wikileaks-saudi-cables_n_7627380.html

    This is a shame on the Egyptians who present themselves as allay to South Sudan just simply for the interest of Nile River. This is absolutely true because Egyptians have been against us characterized by their conspiracy with their devils in Khartoum and sweet-stalked British to deny us independence offering British Sueze Canal, the shortest Route to India, the only colony British was left with

      In the East. Whoever has an evil intention against South Sudan will fail miserably; God created us as other beings hence any country or Individual that dreams of extinctinting us or plot to kill our leaders is a witchful thinking. I knew something fishy was happening given motherfuckers fed with nonsense in Khartoum and obssessed with hatret have been bragging on social media several times

        Predicting Kiir’s death, God is with us, Kiir will never be killed by anybody but rather God who created him will be the one to recall him after he has lived all his ages which is natural, however much people would go to Khartoum and arse around plotting Kiir’s assassination, we must review our relationship with Cairo .
