December 28, 2018 (JUBA) - The rebel National Salvation Front (NAS) dismissed accusations that they carried out attacks on travellers in the roads of Yei Rivers state and abducted several civilians.

The holdout group this week issued a statement on claims that its fighters have abducted nine people from two private vehicles heading from Kaya to Yei in Mugwo county, on 20 December. Also, they were accused of ambushing a third private vehicle in Yari Mugwo County on 23 December.

In a statement released on Wednesday, NAS Spokesperson Suba Samuel Manase condemned the attacks and described the accusations as baseless and unfounded.

"National Salvation Front’s mission is to contribute towards the emancipation of the suffering people of South Sudan from the oppression and subjugation imposed by the Salva Kiir regime In Juba," he said.

He further appointed an accusing finger to the signatories of the revitalized peace agreement, the government and its South Sudan People’s Defence Forces (SSPDF) and the SPLM In Opposition (SPLM-IO).

"Yei-Kaya road is controlled by SSPDF and SPLM-IO respectively. SSPDF are based in Mugwo County and SPLM IO Headquarter is in Panuyume Payam, Morobo County," he said.

"All these positions are found along Yei Morobo road. On the other hand, NAS does not have a single base along this mentioned corridor," he added.

Manase further reiterated his group commitment to the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed on 21 December 2017.

NAS is a non-signatory of the revitalized peace agreement signed on 12 September.

The holdout group which is led by Thomas Cirilo calls for a genuine federal system in South Sudan to prevent the central government from monopolizing resources and land grabbing.

          We must treat these aryan jienges as ordinary animals. You certainly can’t talk to them other than whoop, herd, control and lastly slaughter them. Equatorians in IO should simply provide us with intelligence information on jienge movements. The rest can be taken care of. One jienge one bullet. No discussions. Case closed.

            Absolutely correct!Jienges are foul reeking cockroaches...you get one,stomp on it and exterminate the bug.This is the only best confirmed method to get rid of them, period!

              Since the South Sudan Dinka Forces SSDF are operating along the Yei-Kaya road, we kindly request other jienges to take courage and travel along that road. Safety is guaranteed cuz NAS/SSNMC forces are jumping on trees like monkeys. South South be a brave monyjienge and come down. I personally will guarantee your safety 😁

                True to the core!SSDF is an acronym,it stands for South Sudan Dinka Forces and so is MTNs for MaTiang aNyors of now in Kenya exiled toothless queen Paulina Malonga. NFL goes for Nuer Food Lovers of the blind prophet Riek(no offense to the real prophet)."National Football League is something different".See,there are only few Nuer fighters I respect, some on the ground, some online........

                  ...Truth is,Equatoria has some of the best intelligent war planers and fighters both within the rogue government and the IO.Equatorians are trying to save the whole of South Sudan while wicked jienges and nyagats only scramble for their own stomachs.The children of Equatoria are better than this.Its time to exclusively focus on saving Equatoria first by destroying the current regime.....

                      Eastern, Rhino, Jongo etc.
                      I wish you consistency and good health as we head on to 2019. We are proud descendants of Anyanya 1 who with meager resources stood their ground against mundukurus. Jienges are not different. We swear to follow their footsteps and must NEVER let jienges idle and squat in Equatoria. We swear to hunt them down. Exhume their dead and destroy cuz they would destroy us.

        The Rhino,

        What I know so far is that members of NAS hunt for monkeys. I haven’t seen in my life any monkey which has professional skill.

          That’s right and you’re one of them. Except one can’t eat 🍴 anything like jienge flesh. Simply bind its leg and drag it to rot in a "kusha" so that vultures and hyenas feed on. After all jienges don’t bury their dead but leave them for wild animals and scavengers.

          South South,

          Your underdeveloped little brains reveal how you and your jienges are so poorly equipped to sustain or develop yourselves.You are lazy,use savagery and theft as means to support or maintain your families, being it in the government or in luaks.This raises the question, who is the truest monkey/gorila here,is it not you?

      NAS has become terrorist organization in Yei River County, but will be swiped out soon like Konyi of Uganda.

      Good point,...’If it looks like a duck,quacks like a duck, its a duck’!..and if it crosses the lane, its a ’road kill’.Why the road crossed the chicken?B’cos the chicken crossed the road!
