Machar is decided to return to South Sudan even if pre-transitional process not finalized


Machar (C) speaks to the SSBC after his meeting with the NPTC members in Khartoum on 23 October 2018
February 5, 2019 (NEW YORK) - The leader of the main South Sudanese opposition Riek Machar will return to Juba by the end of next May even if the parties did not finalize the implementation of the pre-transitional period measures, said David Shearer, head of the UN Mission in South Sudan.

Shearer who is nowadays in New York briefed reporters at UN Headquarters on Tuesday about the ongoing implementation of the revitalized peace agreement signed on 12 September 2018.

He stressed that there are many "positive things" in the implementation process citing the end of clashes except with the National Salvation Front of Thomas Cirilo, the return of refugees and IDPs as well as the presence of the opposition leaders in Juba despite the delay and loss of momentum in several areas.

Answering a question about the implementation process in term of security arrangements and power-sharing, the UNMISS chief said the political forces are preparing for the upcoming transitional period as the Former Detainees decided to reintegrate the SPLM in government while the SSOA still have to decide who will be their candidate for vice president.

Speaking about Riek Machar, he said he was in Khartoum last week where he had a long chat with SPLM-IO leader who told him that he would be in Juba by the end of the pre-transitional period.

"He told me he is going to come back at the end of May," said Shearer before to add "he even said he would not going to be insisting that everything was in place".

Machar "felt that it was a good moment to come back," he further stressed.

With the end of the 30-month transitional period, South Sudan will witness the first general elections for the head of state and legislators since the independence. The SPLM-IO has to reshape his political party besides his participation in the national unity government.

Shearer hailed Machar’s positive attitude, pointing that his wife Angelina Teny who is in Juba for more than a month reports back to her husband about the situation on the ground.

The head of UNMISS said he was in New York, to brief the UN Security Council about the peace implementation process emphasizing on the need to for the international community to “speak as one voice,” and to send the message that the peace process is the only game in town.

      Almost 2 years of incarceration in SAfrica have had a profound effect on Riek’s psyche. He is terribly traumatized and wants to be in Juba at any cost. He has duped Equatorians who desperately fought for federalism. Now there’s no federalism but positions and that is where nyagateen are now vetting for. Equatorian IO must join NAS under TCS.

    That is the most blatant and stupid lie Mr. Shearer to say IDPs and refugees are returning. To where? Nuers are still cowering in PoC in Juba, jienge miscreants are still squatting in Nimule and are terrified of returning to their luaks. Peace will only come once federalism is fully implemented. All others is jienge and nyagat scum.

      It depends on what you mean by "federalism" South Sudan is already a Federal republic with 32 states plus Abyei. Aren’t you fellows always brag that you are most highly educated or civilized species in South Sudan? ethiopia is a federal state with a centralized governance system just like North Sudan, Nigeria and other countries. Federalism differs from country to country. And if you losers, thieves, traitors or foreign puppets are very serious about their so-called federal system demand, then the losers should have heed the South Sudanese people calls for "our National Dialogue" to iron out our pestering issues right inside South Sudan>>>

        And not in foreign capitals. But your losers, thieves, traitors and foreign puppets don’t even know what is that they are after. To keen South Sudanese, they are just after their own self ends to be ’reinstalled back’ into their old positions so that they can come and restart their looting spree and infighting where they left it in 2013. If any South Sudanese is really after federal system and nothing else, then the US of America federal system of governance is not the best to copy. Probably the Scandinavian, Germany, Canada, New Zealand or Australia federalism would be the best start>>>

          But as always the case, every system of governance whether bad or good is different and it always take time and sacrifices to achieve the desired results for everyone. But here South Sudan, we are just bunch of complainers on just everything lots. Those countries l just mentioned above to look at their federal systems of governance are even scorned by robber baron hardcore capitalists in Washington, Wall Streets banking scammerd that Scandinavian, Germany, Canada, Australia, New zeal and, Japan and others to be Communist or socialist countries! Of course not, they have a "mix bag" of hardcore capitalism and socialist twist>>

            Without capitalism, incentives for innovation would be stifled and without socialist ways of viewing the world as a collective responsibility for everyone or everything that live in it, capitalism cannot survive without society (social beings). Even in the US, the so-called home of hardcore capitalism, if there are no social contracts with societies or communities, my goodness, the bankers in wall streets or Washington elites would be hauled out onto streets and hanged like what the French people did with their aristocracies during their French revolution>>>

              By the way, the French people still keep the "guillotine" in their museum to remind their leaders that their French republic can’t be messed around with. For us here in South Sudan. All the trappings of being late in the game are all stack up against our country and our people. We have a huge population which illiterate and even our so-called PhD doctors are just as bad than our illiterate South Sudanese population.

              By the way, the French people still keep their guillotine in their museum to remind their leaders that their French republic can’t be trammeled with, without consequences. But with aristocracies and hawked states like the UK, the US, Saudi Arabia and other countries, they can use their states police to suppress their common peoples should they start questioning their wall street and establishments excesses like a few years ago brutal suppression of then so-called "occupy wall street", or 2011 suppression of poor people protest in London after some of Afro-Carribeans were wrongly>>>

And that the resources in South Sudan or DR Congo would be used to prop up these European. the US, their UN, their NGOs and quirky allies in between *dirty and cheap intrigues* ambition. And these cheap and dirty intrigues are all about to stem the flow of Africans from West Africa, Darfur, North Sudan, Eritereans, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), Somalia or other Africans from running to Europe, evil juus (so-called israel), gulf Arab states and other countries to go and cause problems with high societies in those countries>>>

Fellows, the real problems here is---why the evils think South Sudan is their country for their cheap and dirty experiment? The Reasons are: South Sudan is the only country in Africa that *central bank keys and resources* have never been handed over to the US, some Europe countries, their daughters Zion, and of course, South Sudan is called strategic country by these vermin* and ’South Sudanese people are called expendable idiots’>>>>

        That is jienge understanding of what federalism is. For us Equatorians, federalism must be like Kokora; federated governance, financial and administrative systems. We choose our own governors, mayors and not handpicked. We want jienge squatters and worthless miscreants out of Equatoria so that we can freely develop ourselves. Jienge presence is only a hindrance.

          Barias are not the Equatorians chap, they are South Sudanese in Equatorial region. Their Juba is the Capital city of South Sudan. If there are South Sudanese who have stole the Barias lands, then the government of South Sudan and the South Sudanese people are working very to give the land back to innocent Barias people. Parias elders are working with the government of South Sudan and the South Sudanese people to resolve this issue Mr. jubaone idiot, but as far as l am concerned, this nonsense that the Dinkas/Jenges have taken Barias land illegally was put to rest in a few years ago>>>

            An enquiry was carried out to find out if the "Dinkas/Jenges have grabbed the Barias land in Juba simply because they were higher ranking army or police officials" but "it turns out that some Barias were the ones who sold their lands to some Dinkas/Jenges and then go and other Barias and other South Sudanese that their lands have been grabbed by the Dinkas/Jenges by force" Some Barias themselves even told the criminals to stop telling lies. Mr. jubaone, there may be some criminals among Dinkas/Jenges who might have bullied some Barias since in every human beings settings, there are always mistakes made>>>

If Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Adwok Nyabe and other of low lives didn’t ’staged their aimless armed rebellion in 1991 against the SPLM/A; we would have ’marched to Khartoum’ and our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan ’would have been shown their right place out of our country and over our people.
