October 9, 2018 (JUBA) - Activists plan to hold a protest in Nairobi Thursday to press the government of President Uhuru Kenyatta to freeze assets of South Sudanese politicians and officials who allegedly illicitly looted the money of the world’s newest nation.

Organized by the Kenyan group Team Courage the march will deliver a letter to the ministry of foreign affairs to protest the involvement of Kenyan banks in the corruption and looting of South Sudan.

"The protest requests the freeze assets of South Sudanese leaders involved in the conflict and to sanction Kenyan banks facilitating the looting of funds," said the organizers in a letter the Kenyan police and the Kenya National Commission of Human Rights seen by Sudan Tribune.

The march is held following the broadcasting of a documentary film in three parties "The Profiteers" featuring a recent report by the U.S. based The Sentry about the laundering of illicitly-obtained wealth from South Sudan by "corrupt elites" responsible for the civil war and business community in Kenya and Uganda.

In a statement published on its facebook’s page, Team Courage says the protest will gather South Sudanese citizens living in Kenya and friends of South Sudan.

The organizers stressed that their march is a non-political, non-partisan and called on the police to escort their rally.

    This protest will turn awry as SPLA-IO and Dinkaphobes will translate it into demonstration against the innocent Dinka people. No good South Sudanese should participate in that damned foreign agenda demonstration against the government of the Republic of South Sudan.

    Enough Project/ The Sentry is a CIA sponsored spying institution designed to blackmail and undermine weak third world countries that have strong relations with either China or Russia or both and US is bitter for the resources which have been denied to it. South Sudan has oil contract with China and Russia and Ukraine and that is the gist of the matter with US government and CIA/George Cloney

    I meant that is the utter gist of the problem with George Cloney and John Prendergast. They are fighting South Sudan for their national interests. Where is the national interests of South Sudanese? Idiots!

      Lenin Bull,

      You small village boys in Juba posing as "leaders of a sovereign" country better get your acts together. During the war of liberation Chinese chose to sit on its non-interference bullshit while it was doing business with Al Bashir and SPLA even couldn’t approach Russia...!

        .....SPLA village boys quickly forgot the Americans, the Norwegians, etc who were with them. Take note that in this game of America versus China, where the SPLA village boys want to involve the infant South Sudan, the country would be the loser, a great loser at...!

      Lenin Bullshit
      Yours is a collective amnesia and utter stupidity. You jienges were the darlings of the US, Troika et al, where of thousands of lost boys were resettled to the US and Australia. The babysitted you while short-legged Chinese ducks supplied Bashir with deadly arsenal. You now turn around and squeal that there’s regime change 😈

    If indeed "The protest requests the freeze assets of South Sudanese leaders involved in the conflict and to sanction Kenyan banks facilitating the looting of funds," Anyone truly against that? Is it hard to doubt such person has been and wants to continue thriving at the expense of our people? So the more the suffering, deaths and looting go unquestioned and unpunished, the happier opposers are?
