South Sudan leader directs expulsion of Sudanese rebels

November 24, 2016 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has directed all the country’s security organs and armed forces to ensure no hostile group resides or operates inside the young nation’s territories.

“Yes, I would like to confirm that we have received directives from the commander in chief that as of the end of this month, no hostile group operating against the government Sudan should continue to be in the territory of the republic of South Sudan,” a high ranking military intelligence officer told Sudan Tribune Thursday.

The South Sudanese official was reacting to recent reports that the government had given an ultimatum for all armed and non-armed Sudanese dissidents to leave the country.

“If there are political dissidents from Sudan, they will have to go to sort out their differences inside Sudanese territory or stay here as refugees in which case they will have to be disarmed and go to designated places as refugees or apply for political asylum,” he further stressed.

The presidential spokesman, Ateny Wek Ateny separately confirmed that Kiir and his Sudanese counterpart indeed met on the sidelines of the Arab-Africa summit in Equatorial Guinea and agreed not to host and support any armed or non-armed opposition operating against each other.

The two leaders, Ateny said, discussed the significance of strengthening bilateral relations and reaffirmed commitment to full implementation of the 2012 cooperation agreement.

Both leaders will direct the joint political and security committees to implement what was agreed on, he added.

South Sudan seceded from Sudan in July 2011, but the relationship between the two countries remains tense.

Sudan and South Sudan’s border conflict, which flared dramatically in the spring of 2012, has the potential of escalating further if steps are not taken toward peace and security between the two countries.

Negotiations between the two countries remain the best means for settling the disputed border, related security arrangements, outstanding financial and oil-related issues, and the final status of Abyei.

Sudan had, in the past, warned Juba over its alleged support of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) rebels.

    The incompetent Dinka’s tribal chief Kiir makes laws today, pass them unilaterally and break them again within 24 hours. The SPLA-N soldiers are also SPLA soldiers and government officials in S. Sudan since in the beginning of S. Sudan independent. How easy for South Sudan to dismiss these military officials? SPLA-N are rebels in Sudan but government workers in S. Sudan. Good with this expulsion.

        Salva Kiir is lying to President Omer Beshir of Sudan. In their meeting last month the Opposition leader Malik Agar of SPLA _N asked Salva Kiir about Agreement stroked by fake FVP Taban Deng Gai with Sudan government, Salva Kiir said it was just political gimmicky games not real. We shall see soon when we wage war on them in Bentiu or Malakal Town if they wouldn’t imported such hired mercenaries.

        Gatluak jal,

        I told you many times that I do not want to argue with you because you are a Nuer man but Dinka’s woman. Why are you not answering Dinka who used abusive language against Nuer?

          Bravo Naath, the so called Gatluak Jal is not a Nuer by tribe but a Dinka boy who used Nuer name only. View his statement above you will realize that he is Dinka boy who concealed himself to be Ram mi Raan. No real Nuer boy can praise killer Salva Kiir Kuethpiny like that .

    Understand it is easy for Sudanese government to ask the South Sudanese rebels to leave the country but too difficult for S. Sudanese to dismiss the Sudanese rebels from S. Sudan because they are part of South Sudan government. The Sudanese rebels fought for the independent of S. Sudan, they serve every sector of S. Sudan government.

    I hope you guys meant what you have agreed to no longer host rebels against one another, for we have been hearing that several times in vain. Rebellion has become incurable disease to mankind that should not be encouraged at all. u will believe with me that helping one another’s rebel was a wrong ideas ab initio, and after having done so, how did you benefit? Nothing.

      We need peace in South Sudan .The issue of Abyie will be left to Sudan, people of Abyie and international community. We are tired of wars guys. Lets be contented with our 28 states or more.Each state must develop itself using its own resources. Block grant to the states will only cover small portion of state budgets. President Kiir Oyeeeeee

        Malakal County Boy, I strongly agreed with you comrade.The President of Mathiang Anyor Salva Kiir is a politically dead but relying on two devilish tactics: tribal or clan divisions as to cling on power using policy of divide and rule .
        Second is widen bribery practices as to buy support from traitors , opportunists and money gluttonous ( camjiec ) domestically, regionally and internationally.

    President Salva Kiir Mayardit should be praise for taking bold decision to expel Sudanese rebel out of our territory. The rebel and Sudanese government need to workout their differences in Sudan. Why should we waste our precious time supporting them when we have our own problems in South Sudan.

    It seems that you believe in denial like Kiir, Makuei and the other stooges that are yes people. In South Sudan army we have many SPLA-N officials who are currently living in Biel Pam in Juba and they get paid regular salaries. Beside that, we have huge Darfurians forces in Mayom, Bentiu and SPLA-N headquarter in Parieng County in Unity State. We have other station in Raja, N. Bar el Gazal.
