April 20, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudanese president Salva Kiir said Thursday he would be visiting the states to explain to the people that he and his administration was working day and night exploring the best ways to end the conflict, saying war is not a "pleasurable game" to continue with.

The South Sudan leader said the only option is to the stop war and bring peace.

“This war is not the wish of any citizen but there are people who think that war is the solution. These are the people causing this suffering. We want to denounce violence, come back and participate in the national dialogue so that this situation is stopped because is not a pleasurable game. It is destructive”, Kiir said on Thursday.

The president said he was committed to ending the war in the country and called on the citizens to help us and his administration achieve peace by talking to those they know have taken up arms.

“I am sure this war will stop but it should be left to the government alone. Every citizen needs to play a role by talking to those they know have taken up arms and tell them there is a national dialogue so let them. This was what I said when I visited Yei in February and this is the message I will be carrying wherever I go, whether in the tour of the states or outside the country”, he said.

Meanwhile, the presidential advisor on security affairs said Kiir was committed to ending the war and his decision to visit Kapoeta state in Eastern Equatoria demonstrates his willingness to reach out to all segments of society to talk with them about peace.

“The visit of the president Kapoeta is very important. It will give and the people in that state to hear from them and for the people to hear from himself. The president is carrying another important message of encouragement for the people to embrace agriculture, which has been our source survival since time immemorial. It should not be left”, said Tut Kew Gatluak.

The foreign affairs minister, Deng Alor Kuol also emphasised the importance of the visit of the president to the area, describing it as very important.

“It is very important this time when we are mobilising our people for national dialogue and national reconciliation, so in that context, the president has decided to visit Kapoeta,” said Kuol.

    What dialogue or peace are you talking about, Mr drunkard failed tribal Dinka President, are you living in a bubble or is it the ’Johnny Walker’ messing with your impaired brain.

    Nobody wants you in Equatoria apart from your stooges like Governor Lobong and Elia Lomuro, but we will one day use them as a sacrifice to cleanse our land, after we finish with you Jienge.

      Incompetent Kiir is always trying to convince the fools with blah blah promises. You may blindfold the Bhar El Ghazal fools but can’t reach outside it.
      War will once and for all stop automatically when you are out of power...be it peacefully or forcefully.

        South Sudan is the only country in the universe where likes of inept/unaesthetic Tutkew Gatluak becomes an Advisor to the president...the worse thing is that, Tutkew isn’t a technical advisor but a full range Advisor.
        Dr. Riek Machar is only the Master Planer, Hope and Master builder for the people of South Sudan.

        It’s now upto the Mighty IO fighters to make a gesture or tide their unshakable bells to give the last persue to the Incompetent Kiir’’s Ansars across the country.

          my question to you is, What developmental contribution did Riek do to South Sudan when he was Vice president for the last 8 years? what tangible thing had he done to South Sudanese? what I know he created hatred and conflict among peacefully communities to kill and view one another as enemies. let us talk about peace for the benefit of every citizen.

          Peace for all,
          I have no problems with jienges as long as they keep to themselves and let others do their own things. The Kiirminal has devolved the country to several states yet the jienges are not comfortable with what they have and instead go everywhere causing chaos and anarchy. They just don’t want to live like civilized people. That’s my problem. Go to your luaks and I’m done.

            You’re not animal in the jungle to be left alone to do your own thing. If you want to act like that; then go to your ancestral lands of Uganda and Congo but this is South Sudan were Dinka rule! You have only two option; you either obey the rule or move out of the country to where your ancestors belong.

Your power hungry tribal chief Killed Nuer and other people,and chased them away from government, what is has done since then?

Aren’t aware that you people have been rebelling and fighting against SPLA and government since 1991 but did you achieved anything through war since then? If you were people with brains; you would be advising those “Nyam-Nyam” about how dangerous war is! Mi diit; you people are like birds who die in a trap and still come back to!

      Your stupidity will never stop as long as you use computer key board to fight the war. Peace is the only option for you and other useless internet fighters. I do think you saw yesterday on AlJazeera TV a few rebels from Equatoria, they are dying from starvation. Here you are opening your very dirty mouth to talk about killing Dinka and Good Equatoria.

        It is better to starve to death while fighting the jienge as surrender. If these were jienges they would have defected to the Kiirminal. Equatorians are principled and are not driven by bodily desires like the jienges. The jienges run after food 😋 not different from scavenging animals.

          This is great news to me. You acknowledge now that there is starvation in Equatoria, not only poor innocent people who are caught int the middle are starving, but those losers without guns and called themselves rebels are dying too from hunger. They will accept peace soon and join the dialogue Mr. president is calling for. Dinka fought war with Fake Arabs for more than 20 years.

May be you overslept or deliberately trying to shut off realities so you remain obsessed in your jienge world. So why are your jienges starving in Gogrial or Aweil. Cos they are fucking lazy. Period

              You are very simple minded person. Museveni never mentioned Equatoria in his statement. Museveni never denied that Dinka were leading war for more than 20 years in South Sudan. Museveni is our man and you have no an idea why he said what he said. People are dying in Equatoria for no food to eat including wicked rebels, they need food, please help them.

Even in your own junk jienge states, there’s no single development. Just good goons, wheeler-dealers and losers. We Equatorians are proud we brought sanity and culture, you jienge scoundrels NOT and will NEVER get anywhere.Sorry

                  You have no an idea about Anyanya 1. Yes, Joseph Lagu was selected by Dinka because of Israel conditions. Please ask Joseph Lagu about that. Second, there is no cutute in Equatoria. Iam in Juba, all Equatoria children speak Arabic Juba only and they do not know their parents language. You will find opposite when you meet with Dinka children, they speak Dinka.

Till the coming of wild jienge savages they have turned our Juba into a big stinking luak. Jienge thives, kiirminals, mundukuru jienge bastards from Aweil and Gok Machar are swarming like insects.

I will not hesitate to stand up against anyone who will come close to president kiir’s presidency. If there is an election and he lose election, I will take that, but for very coward people to hold up guns and think that they will change him by force, I say no, big no.

            I am happy you accept that people need peace even when you jienges have peace in your junk jienge states. War in Equatoria or Upper Nile means you destroy the SS. For me jienges states are not important. If there is no war in jiengeland and they can’t develop so why should the Kiirminal even give them states? They don’t need them. Just hopeless. Equatoria=SS not jiengelands

      I couldn’t believe that people like you are tribal oriented since you just base your argument in finishing certain tribe in their country big or small. If that is the real plan, do you think you will bring peace? What we need is peace and choose another leader either from Equatoria,Upper Nile or Bhar El Ghazal who will also come from any tribe.

          What is wrong with you. Let’s focus on food issue in Equatoria, that’s a very hot topic we saw yesterday from AlJazeera TV. Equatoria Rebels are dying from starvation. It’s not Dink’s problem. Dinka did not send them to forest, they have chosen that path. For Dinka, they spent more than 20 years fighting Arabs. They did not complain to anyone to help them. It’s your choice, face it.

    Kiir "What goes around comes around" and be aware of what you wish for. These are two sayings that summarizes Kiir’s attitude . Come back to reality and know that South Sudan belongs to all Sudanese. Call on third party either within Sudan or neighboring country to oversee the dialogue , most important allow all movements or parties to participle without strings attached. Get rid of the burden.
