South Sudan Students in Kenya back SPLM withdrawal







We, the South Sudanese students in Kenya would like to put in record our
gratitude and sincere commendation to the GOSS and particularly H.E.
President Kiir Mayardit on the decision to suspend our participation in the
government in Khartoum.

We are aggrieved and sadden by continued violation of the Comprehensive
Peace Agreement (CPA) by the ruling National Congress Party (NCP). The
National Islamic rogue regime has persistently and arrogantly refused to
implement the agreement to the letter. The key and fundamental provisions
undermined ever since include:-

1. The Abyei Protocol; particularly establishment of the Administration and
Abyei Boundaries Commission’s recommendations.

2. Withdrawal of SAF from the South and redeployment to the North.

3. North –South borders demarcation.

4. Transparency in oil revenue.

5. Funding and conduct of the census.

6. The bill of Rights.

7. Democratic transformation in the country.

8. Peaceful resolution to Darfur conflict.

9. Status of foreign diplomats and experts in the country.

We are disturbed by the aforementioned attempts by the NIF clique that are
likely to provoke war and deny the Sudanese people peace dividends, which
both parties (SPLM and NCP) negotiated and assented to unconditionally.
However, comes what may, we strongly urge the SPLM never, never to
compromise on the terms stipulated in the agreement. Our partnership is
meant to be nothing beyond the content of the CPA and hence there is no room
for re-negotiating the agreement again.

It is against this background that we are hereby requesting the
international community; United Nations and the IGAD member States,
currently chaired by president Kibaki to urgently intervene and avert the
situation before the country slips back to conflict.
As students and the youth who are the heirs of next round of war, we
reiterate our usual and unwavering support to the leadership of South Sudan.
In fact, the decision was long overdue. We demand the following actions to
be undertaken in defense of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

1. Total transfer of NIF troops and Mujahidiin from the South to the North
with immediate effect.

2. Immediate handover of the oilfields area command to the JIUs.

3. Transparent and equitable sharing of oil revenue.

4. Demarcation of North-South borders without fail.

5. NIF to stop terrorizing the South Sudanese squatters and leaders in the

6. Immediate release of funds needed for the census which is vital for
holding of first ever general election in the country since creation.

7. To effectuate the proposed reshuffle of the GONU in accordance with the
wishes of the South Sudan public.

8. To allow resolution of Darfur conflict within the framework of CPA.

9. IGAD to convene a meeting for the parties to renew their commitment to
genuine implementation of the pact.

We call upon the world not to be reluctant in dealing with repressive
government, the NIF, as they dishonor a mutual accord mediated by the
international community for the purpose of ending the brutal and long
running war of the time in Africa, to get away with it. NIF behavior of
unilateral, unlawful expulsion of foreign diplomats and experts should be

    Who are these student you are talking about.Do they even represent Sudan or Southern Sudan. If few Dinkas gather togather and make noise does it mean they represent Sudan. I want to let people know that we will not accept this. First and foremost what the SPLM or the so called GOST did is not in the interest of the people of southern Sudan. We have not seen anything they are doing apart from looting the country and buying hosues and businesses in East Africa, Australia, Europe, USA etcs. Furthermore they who are the SPLM and do they really know that people do not like and their behaviour. We will see during elections or referandum if SPLM will still exist.

      Let me just waste my time to reply my myopic refugee brother who claimed to know what is happening in Sudan. First of all let me try to know which side are you! Sudan or Southern Sudan? Because you have made the public aware that what the SPLM is doing is by a few Dinkas and i don’t know the reliability of your source(s) of that information.

      What the SPLM is doing is trying to solve what have not been going well in our partnership with NIF or NCP whichever they call themselves. The complains presented were in connection to the violation to the CPA, which i think if you were a rational Sudanese, then you could give a moral support to SPLM for their tirelessness struggle to achieve a full freedom for all Sudanese. I think if you could have time to see the list of the SPLM officials who are spearheading the pull out comprises of almost all sections of Sudan and they are doing on behalf of Sudanese not Dinka interest as you put it.

      Coming to your claim that the GOSS which you refered to "GOST" was doing nothing is also baseless and you have wasted your time typing senseless article. If you are seriously a developmental South Sudanese then you should alwys have a constructive criticisms which can help the GOSS to improve. What i know is GOSS have tried to achieve some of what they planned and with time the expectation of the people will be reached though there are some few people/institutions that have been reported fraudulent and the GOSS did not sleep that’s why there have been reshuffle of staffs now and then and also recently the Government have had a Contract UK Audit Firm PKF (UK) to audit the way the funds were spent for the last financial Years.

      My conclusion is that my brother you should be getting grassroot informations to competently and strongly put up any arguement/accusations with examples pertaining to the Institution/people. Let’s not just oppose because you are supposed to oppose but because something is worth opposing for the interest of the public. Before putting full stop let me make it clear that am not working with GOSS but we should be appreciative if you really was put of liberation and start calling spade a spade but not big spoon and furthermore you should be carefull in digging a hole to fill another hole.

    Please, Warija do not be so naive as the Natioal congres party (NPC). Your comment make clear to us what you are and where you belongs. However, do not make a mistake of coming home through the upper nile.
