Uganda, Kenya fuelling S. Sudan conflict, says UN official


January 30, 2018 (JUBA) – A senior United Nations official has accused Uganda and Kenya of allegedly helping prolong the civil war in South Sudan by aiding arms transfers in to war-torn nation.

“The responsibility to prevent atrocities is regional and international,” Adama Dieng, the UN special advisor for prevention of genocide, told the Washington-based Voice of America (VOA) on Monday.

“It is true that large quantities of weapons and ammunition are flowing into South Sudan through Kenya and Uganda,” he added.

Peace, the UN official said, will be achieved in South Sudan if there are concerted regional and international efforts to leave no further options to the South Sudanese leaders to stop and start negotiating.

Uganda has openly sided with the South Sudanese government since the start of the civil war in December 2013 when it sent troops to fight against the armed opposition faction led by Riek Machar.

“International partners have to start targeting the accomplices, intermediaries of the South Sudanese parties,” stated Dieng.

“Welcoming refugees who are victims of a conflict they are de facto facilitating is not good enough,” he added.

After gaining independence from Sudan in 2011, South Sudan descended into war in December 2013, leaving tens of thousands dead and over 2 million people displaced. Uganda is currently hosting more than one million refugees from South Sudan, while Kenya’s Kakuma camp holds more than 100,000.

Last year, a confidential UN report accused South Sudan government of spending its oil revenue on weapons, even as the country descends into a famine largely caused by Juba’s military operations. South Sudan derives 97% of its budget revenue from oil sales.

    Few people tell the truth in this world! Else, the war in Old Sudan should have stopped before 2005 PCA! We all know how it went, and now is being conducted in South Sudan.
    We need more mouth to be opened about the truth and reality; crying wolf will never help South Sudanese.
    South Sudanese must trust themselves and stop hanging their weakness on others! Don’t forget the help you got during war!!

            "Bomb them with the help of Ugandan troops of course ", Thanks to you and Ugandan South Sudanese lost lives while Ugandans are living life. Museveni is the main reason why DRC,Somalia and South Sudan wars last so that it benefits him. He had Kagame with him and now Kenya join the him as well. Kenya benefit from the Refugee money and the 10Million Kiir donated to Kenyatta’s Campeign.

Kenyan banks, Ugandan matoke, tomatoes and prostitutes, Ethiopian water carriers and bootlickers are all doing business on behalf of their jienge patrons and government thugs.

          You may want to lynch Adama Diang, but the truth and nothing but the truth has been stated. The writing is on the wall. First of all, what we have in Juba is a tribal regime and there’s no place in the 21st century for regimes! It is now a lot safer for Kiir to cede power or he’s pushed, along with his sycophants.

          You´re right our leaders are thirsty for power and our useful idiots have given them a golden opportunity to interfer in our affairs. Remember, Uganda thinks it supported us militarily while Kenya thinks they hosted the SPLA/M and enabled the signing of CPA in 2005. They want their share of the profit or "loot".

            I have seen your positive contribution in enlightening our people on the dangers these subhuman beings called bla bla born rulers are. You are really patriotic. The problem is those in power are not real people. They are just baboons who care about food at the table only and nothing else. The only medicine to them is to kick them out of leadership.

    This UN ‘big eye monkey’ is a liar and anti-South Sudan government (SPLA). Remember his last year lying to teeth about eminent genocide. His grand lying sent panic causing many families to flee to Uganda and Kenya. Now he’s blaming those countries for accepting those refugees. May be this useless monkey would be happy if Kenya and Uganda kick out those refugees.

Fled of many villages in West & Central Equatoria was from panic (that Dinka will respond) after cowards who will never fight like men and capture a town attacked and killed many (Dinka) school children on Yei-Juba road as well attacks on Juba-Nimule road.
