South Sudan rebels accuse Kiir of cancelling ceasefire accord


April 28, 2018 (JUBA) – A South Sudanese armed opposition (SPLM-IO) official has accused President Salva Kiir of having allegedly vowed and ordered the country’s national army forces to crush out rebels.

Lam Paul Gabriel, the deputy spokesperson for the armed opposition claimed Kiir made the remarks while addressing his forces in Bilpham.

“This is a clear cancellation of the signed CoH [Cessation of Hostilities] and declaration of full swing war in South Sudan,” he said.

Lam claimed government forces have constantly attacked rebel bases from all fronts in total violation of the signed ceasefire accord.

He specifically cited an attack allegedly carried out by government forces at a rebel base in Kaya, describing it as an act of aggression.

“The SPLA-IO forces of Brigade 5 under the command of Gen. Ramadan fought back with full zeal and determination repulsing the enemy forces to Kaya center killing 12 enemies; 6 regime’s soldiers including a Major have been seriously wounded and taken to Arua for treatment,” Lam further stated in a statement.

He claimed government forces used a poisonous gas that killed rebels, allegations Sudan Tribune could not independently verify.

Similar attacks on rebel bases, he said, occurred in Akobo town, Upper Nile state.

Meanwhile, the armed opposition faction called on the ceasefire monitoring body (CTSAMM) and the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to investigate what he called “cowardice” acts of aggression by government forces in violation of the ceasefire deal.

Talks between government and the opposition are due next month, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) announced this week.

    This monkey spokesperson of Reik called Lam Paul Gabriel is lying to us again. There are no real rebels in South Sudan to be crushed. If government of South Sudan has poison to kill a few rebels, how could the wicked rebels fight back, what a lie!!!!!

    no one will fight rebel this time since no salaries received by soldiers for some months now who will go to fight and if they pretend to go just only first bullet shot they will run away because nobody would allow himself to lost his life for nothing.

      People who are fighting in South Sudan side government are not fighting for money, they are fighting for their survival. Rebels want to kill them and their families. This is about standing with your community or you will be wiped out, not wicked money. From 1983-2005 we fought fake Arabs, no money by then and no money now to fight a few wicked rebels.

        South South,
        What is most annoying from these so-called rebels is, what are they fighting for? And who is their leader & where do they get arms & munitions from? Lam Akol is comfortable enjoying his life in Khartoum. Mr. Thomas Cirillo is enjoying his loots in a hotel in Adis Ababa. Pagan Amuom, Majak Agoot, Kosti Manibe, Rebecca Nyandeng, Uyai Deng Ajak, Adwok Nyabe & Co.>>

But the evils have step on the wrong people’s feet. The Sudanese men----the Dinkas/Monyjiengs of the Sudan have an attitudes towards any evil on earth, who thinks that he/she can stand over our necks.

Do the Dinkas/Jaangs, Anyuaks, Mabanese, Murles & others in the former great Upper Nile want to have anything to do with the ’Nuers & Shilluks’ and their cancerous & aimless armed rebellions some of these days?

Only one or two oil fields are in the former unity state & these ones were destroyed by the Riek Machar lawless goons at the on set of their aimless armed rebellion. Otherwise, the current oil fields are all in the Dinka/Jaang countries & we never welcome their white Americans, English>>
