March 18, 2020 (JUBA) - The National Salva Front (NAS) accused the South Sudanese army of gross human rights violations and tortures around Yei area saying it should be seen as violations of the cessation of hostilities agreement.

"The SSPDF soldiers in Otogo and Lasu Payam respectively have intensified their usual practices of looting, raping of women and small girls, beatings and extortion of money at military checkpoints, from civilians travelling to markets".

NAS Spokesman Suba Samuel Manase in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Wednesday said these practices were politically motivated because the soldiers tortured, intimated and harassed those who voiced their support for the 10 state administrative system and rejected the 32-state system that President Kiir had to cancel recently under regional and international pressure.

Manase further said they consider "these attacks on civilians as a violation of the commitment to the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement CoHA signed in December 2017 and to the Rome Declaration 12 January 2020 of recommitment to adhere to the CoHA 2017.

"NAS leadership urges the Community of Sant’Egidio, the members of International Community to address these serious violations and development," he said.

The South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) including NAS on 14 February recommitted its factions to the cessation of hostility agreement of December 2017 in a deal brokered by the Roman Catholic Sant’ Egidio.

According to the agreement, SSOMA will participate in the Monitoring and Verification mechanism paving the way for further negotiations on the root causes of conflict in South Sudan.

Sant Egidio plans to hold a new peace process between the national unity government and the SSOMA.

    Wicked of NAS are lying again. Why don’t you talk about Bari tribe in Juba who are beating up other tribes from Equatoira because their tribe bishop resigned.

        The Rhino,

        You are just Kurkoo. Bari killed Mundari and beat up Eastern Equatoria tribes in Juba, that is a human rights violation, isn’t it? These tribes of Equatoria need to be trained and armed to teeth to fight Bari.

          Jienge kaffir and loser. Instead of going back to your village (if you really have any), and develop it, you are still hiding your dirty shithole in Kenya or Uganda cuz you would get killed or starve. As a worthless bridgand and drifter, you will remain the eternal MTN. Everywhere and nowhere like flies. Dirty jienge.

          Jienge kaffir, Equatorians have been living peacefully for decades. Equatorians successfully drove all jienges out during kokora. Now jienge miscreants killing themselves like savages are running away to Equatoria and think they can incite division amongst us welee! Now "feace" has come, but jienge fear returning cuz there’s really no home. They live under trees like giant gorillas

    Stop being Tribalistic. do you think Equatorians that you are killing will leave without other tribes. Dinkas fight one another face to face. Nuer fight one another face to face. Equatorians Poison one another secretly. what is good with Equatorians is that, they know how to Poison themselves and other tribes.

      You worthless jienge. The difference is, you all run away from your killing fields and hide your cowardly butts in Equatoria, Kenya or Uganda. If you preferred killing yourselves face-to-face, why run away as refugees? Did Equatorians run away to hide in your places? Just shut up, cowards and be fed like giant gorillas. Your lives dont matter to us at all. Equatoria is best without you.
