South Sudan’s NAS refuses final peace document


August 31, 2018 (JUBA) - Another member of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) distanced itself from the coalition and rejected the signing of the final document of the revitalised peace agreement by its leader.

The National Salvation Front (NAS) of General Thomas Cirillo has joined the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) and the SPLM- Former Political Detainees - FDs, which also refused marked their rejection of the draft peace agreement.

In a statement released Friday, the group spokesperson Suba Samuel Manase said they informed the SSOA and the IGAD mediators they are not part of the "initialling exercise" by SSOA leader Gabriel Chanson Chang on Thursday 30 August.

"We have made our position crystal clear that the Khartoum round of negotiation on governance has fallen short of addressing the root causes of the conflict in the Republic of South Sudan," said Manase.

He further stressed that this final text is a "is a recipe for more conflict" and therefore "we shall not betray our people by rewarding them with short-term peace".

NAS refused to sign the governance agreement of 5 August 2018 saying it "prioritizes power-sharing over devolution of powers", emphasising it defers the question of federalism to a permanent constitution-making process (during the transitional period) that the parties cannot guarantee when this will eventually happen".

Like the PDM, NAS wants this issues of governance be settle in the peace agreement.

However, the group expressed its commitment to the ongoing peace process and pledged to "contribute to comprehensive and sustainable peace" in the country.

SSOA and the SPLM-IO before to sign the final text of the revitalized peace agreement expressed four concerns saying that President Omer al-Bashir of Sudan pledged to address before the final signing with the IGAD leaders.

However, these concerns do not include PAM-NAS demand for a federal system agreed during the negotiation, noting that PAM clearly says they want a three-region system.

The two parties are seen as expressing the inspiration of people in the Greater Equatoria for one region, as it was the case in 1956 with the independence of Sudan.

It was purported that General Cirillo who is currently visiting the United States and other holdout groups seek to convince the international community particularly the Troika countries to support their plight.

The international community called for an inclusive and comprehensive deal in South Sudan saying they would only support a sustainable peace agreement.

IGAD welcomes

In a statement released on Friday, the IGAD Special Envoy Ambassador Ismail Wais, welcomed the initialling of the draft agreement and congratulates the parties for signing the agreement.

"This is a step in the right direction to help the reconciliation and rebuilding of South Sudan," he said.

He called on the parties to demonstrate their commitment to start implementing the revitalized ARCSS as a matter of priority and to prepare for the upcoming IGAD Summit.

    The families of Cirillo Swaka have been known for making themselves insiders and they loved to betrayed South Sudanese people as his brother Peter Cirillo had done at the Nimiriy time. He will not get anything for his entirely life. Pagan Amum he is a thief who stolen $600 million and run away with it. He was challenge by the brave woman in the court and he was told that, your English is so bad.

    • 1 September 2018 10:43, by jubaone

      Cool down aryan jienge. Gen Cirillo is simply doing what the jienges do passionately: stealing whether cows, women or money. Theft is your culture. Gen Cirillo over the years as Dep Chief of Staff for Logistics saw the rampant theft by jienges. In the end, he might have dipped his hands too deep and took a chunk of the rest. Not bad. Jienge thieves can’t be his moral judges. Bullshit.

      Mayendit, Cirillo Swaka is making a big mistake in his life time by not signing the final peace agreement. He will regret this mistake in the future. Where is going to operate if I may ask since Machar and Kiir will operate in Juba? Equatoria is too small for three leaders to operate. We, South Sudanese need peace.

  • 1 September 2018 06:36, by Mayendit

    It is time for IGAD members and the Eastern Africa leaders to imposed punishment on South Sudanese Oppositions Alliance and others rebels who have refusal to signs the peace agreement. One of the reason why Africa continent is under development for centuries is because of wars, corruption, none cooperation, taking bribes and the absence of peace and unity among African themselves.

  • 1 September 2018 07:39, by aborigin

    Thomas Cirilo has his own right to either remain in the bush or join the peace process BUT Thomas should tread careful because every slight blunder render you irrelevant every time you repeat it, he should calculate his political manoeuvres carefully.

  • 1 September 2018 08:42, by Games

    Yup, three regions or Federalism are the most people’s choices. Stick on Thomas Cirillo and most will follow you voluntary.

  • 1 September 2018 09:06, by Eastern

    I am in agreement with NAS and PDM; the Khartoum peace jokes are laying the ground for future conflicts in South Sudan. Omar el Bashir is a desperate man who wants to dies as president for he can’t survive outside that office as he’s a wanted man. The same with Museveni, who leads by patronage. He too can’t survive outside the office of the president.

      Don’t turn around later and give Bashiir a budy call with an anonymous number, explaining that you changed your mind! We’re signing the final shortly. Case closed!

        Naïve and complacent idiots would think this jienge-nyagat deal will work. Hell no! Wunlit didn’t work, ARCISS 2015 didn’t work, several CoH deals didn’t work, why would this work? The same people, the same shit. Kin ko kak, koimot ko lo Ki. Peanut-coated shit can’t be eaten. That is this deal. Just waiting for Riak or Kiirminal to dash on foot 👣 through our bushes. 😁

        Bush Natives,

        I have been resolute....Just check my records on this forum and beyond. I can’t change my stance on the dinka people. They are the same yesterday, today and will remain the same for a very long time! Remember, it took Europeans a very long time to evolve out of the medieval period which lasted from 5th to 15th century AD. We are now in 21st century so expect a long haul....!

      Former prime minister of Ethiopia Hailemariam Desalegn once said Kiir must resign in order for South Sudan to move forward,he was right in his statement.He/Desalegn knew very well that Kiir’s poor political performances and recalcitrant perversity to break every agreement are serious concerns which must not be underestimated when dealing with him.Similarly US ambassador to the ..

      • 1 September 2018 12:07, by Eastern

        The Rhino,

        Morons think Kiir isn’t the problem but "people surrounding" him! Still some morons think that by bringing Kiir and Machar together, the puppet followers will fall back in the EATING MODE and divert their energies in waging war to eating and fattening. That can only offer temporary reprieve but not peace!

      • 1 September 2018 12:08, by The Rhino

        ...UN Nikki Haley also said,Kiir is unfit to lead South Sudan,see,..both politicians are expertise in their fields and never hold back to tell the truth.So,why would NAS or PDM sign a bogus peace that does not address root courses of conflicts,let alone the implementation of these agreements?I’m very proud of NAS and PDM b’cos they’ve the good judgement and reasoning.

        • 1 September 2018 12:21, by Eastern

          The Rhino,

          In Kiir we are dealing with king Nebuchadnezzar (c.630-562 bc.) like individual. Emboldened by Museveni and Bashir, two of Africa’s presidents with dark histories and China, a country that wants to such resources from Africa along with AFRICAN BLOOD, doesn’t require any kids gloves. Kiir cannot be handled the way Gabriel Changson does....!

          • 1 September 2018 12:50, by The Rhino


            Jienges and nyagats excessively squandered the real chance of building peace and stability shortly after the secession from Sudan in 2011.Peace is not a chunk of block that is only signed then left stationary,NO,its a continues process that requires constant nurturing,protection,good governance,competent leadership and complete absence of military confrontations.But if you have morons ..

            • 1 September 2018 12:59, by The Rhino

              ...like jienges or nyagats who are instinctively driven by savagery,greed and chaos,peace will for ever remain elusive.It doesn’t matter what peace,who signed it or where it was agreed,nothing will change.

  • 1 September 2018 09:10, by Eastern

    Let those Deng Alor and Gabriel Changson go to Juba to implement what they have signed with Kiir. The other South Sudanese who are not should stay out of that joke but continue to struggle to claim back their land from the Machiavellian folks now pacing up and down the peace jokes hall in Khartoum....Case closed!

    • 1 September 2018 09:45, by jubaone

      Why should they all come to Juba? They could head on to their luaks and start developing them. Juba only encourages laziness and idleness. Juba is already "full" of them and it now stinks like an open luak

      • 1 September 2018 09:59, by Eastern


        These people are wired to believe that for one to be considered a human, they must live in Juba. When Kokora forced them out of Juba in the 80s the went to the bush with one thing in mind: come back to Juba. They postured that some swampy Ramciel would become the capital, but they are still stuck in Juba...

  • 1 September 2018 10:04, by Eastern


    For obvious reasons, Juba cannot be shared by those who believe in medieval ways of doing things and those who love for humanity and diversity...Australians, Canadians, the Americans, etc are already regretting why the took in the Sudanese! So for the time being, Juba should be left to the monsters and the struggle continues..!

    • 1 September 2018 10:27, by jubaone

      Even if 64 states were created, none of these jienges nor nyagats would freely go back to their states. Rather, these junk states are simply " money generating golden donkeys" from whose shitholes money is supposed to flow incessantly. The national govt. will pump in million $ that will just get stolen. The jienges can’t and won’t develop. It’s not their nature to progress.

      • 1 September 2018 10:34, by jubaone

        If indeed jienges were a progressive people, their junk jiengestans would be paradise and most junubin would want to migrate there. On the contrary, these jiengestans are simply shitholes, sad reality of wasted human and natural resources. Jienges are fleeing their lands even in the absence of war. Instead of them feeding SS, they’re being fed and their states turned into grazing fields.

          jubaone and Eastern,

          Peace will be signed, the final peace will come to South Sudan this year, mark my words. Head of PPD, the guy from Arizona, USA, did try to come back to US, but he was denied to come back to his family. Pagan lives in US in Colorado State. Thomas Cirillo lives in Ethiopia. Poor people of South Sudan are the one paying heavy prices for this conflict. Let’s Support peace.

            South South
            I agree, we all need peace for development. But what is this, if all again congregate in Juba or Equatoria and forget other states? Development will be skewed and people in Aweil, Turalei, Boma or Yambio will have no or limited development. Federalism will ensure that power goes to the people and their leaders held accountable. This under the current system is not the case.

          • 1 September 2018 11:27, by Eastern

            South South,

            Nobody wants to go to America or Canada so as to achieve the desired peace in South Sudan. We still have the bushes of South Sudan teeming with monkeys and wild fruits to feed the forces of change. Juba can be used as the hotbed of those ready to follow Kiir and cohorts. Change will be achieved in my lifetime or posterity....!

      • 1 September 2018 10:36, by Eastern


        Remember, nothing last forever....Following the urge from some folks duped by the Khartoum peace jokes for South Sudanese politicians to go home even after "bracketing" so many outstanding and unresolved issues, Kiir looks the saint! The junta in Juba cannot be compromised from within but from outside. In this struggle, rent-seekers are not allies.

  • 1 September 2018 10:40, by Eastern


    A dinka is a dinka, one of the reason the jallaba pruned off southern Sudan from the Sudan to form the republic of South Sudan just to give them mental peace! Abyei, a contested territory, inhabited by the dinka is now largely under the Sudan and the inhabitants are receptive of the idea...

    • 1 September 2018 10:59, by South South


      Please read this from Eastern "A dinka is a dinka". The guy has a Dinka wife in his house. jubaone, can we still believe him? I find it very hard to believe anything Eastern says. How can a man lives with a person in his house, in one roof and then go out and call that person names.

      • 1 September 2018 11:09, by jubaone

        South South
        Well, I admire Eastern for that. He clearly is demonstrating that love is one thing, political business is another. He can’t be compromised. That is true leadership and his wife I guess loves him for that. If that were not the case, she’d be gone. Equally, many jienges have Equatorian wives, but this hasn’t changed their attitudes towards Equatoria.

        • 1 September 2018 11:17, by South South


          You missed my point. Eastern says, he hates entire Dinka tribe, he hates anything called Dinka, but still he has a Dinka wife at home, how do you call that?

        • 1 September 2018 12:21, by jubaone

          Top JCE members like Ambrose Riny, Bona Malwal or such jienges like Dr Luka Biong, fmr Head of Tiger Battalion Gen Chanuong, Gen Tito Achuil etc..all were/are married to Equatorian women but this didn’t change their attitudes toward Equatorians. So why would you expect Eastern to change cuz of his wife? He’s trying to keep "bed politics" away from real issues. Respect 👍

          • 1 September 2018 12:24, by Eastern


            When a dinka man wants to appear relevant, he always says the following: "you missed the point", "please reread my post", etc. Thanks for letting South South know the differences between "bed politics" and what we are dealing now...

      • 1 September 2018 11:20, by Eastern

        South South,

        My wife comes from dinka from somewhere in Northern Bahr el Ghazal (I won’t give more details). Once a woman gets married, she sheds off her median name, tribe, religion and sometimes her independence. My dinka woman is a completely differ person BUT NOT my dinka in-laws!I am Eastern, a very honest person; if I tell you South South is a very lousy person, that’s what....

        • 1 September 2018 11:24, by Eastern

          ....I will tell any other person about you. I cannot use the Julius Tabuley’s approach of telling Thomas Cirilo one thing and going behind him to talk sweetly to Kiir. ALL DINKA people have the same way of reasoning; like it or not. I personally warned Dr. Peter Biar Ajak but since a dinka only takes advise from a fellow dinka, now my friend in the Blue house in Juba!

        • 1 September 2018 14:55, by South South


          We now know your Dinka wife, she is a daughter of Lual Kon. We know you now.

            • 1 September 2018 17:01, by South South

              It’s not Lual Kon. I was told just a few minutes ago that It’s the daughter of Bol Kon and you live in Canada. I am putting all facts about you and I will ask people in Canada to give it to her.

What profound or frightening things has he said that’s prompted you to issue this threat? Oh, he hates the Dinka? So what!

                  Please don’t make up something I didn’t mention in my writing. Eastern is making internet living by calling Dinka tribe names " Dinkas are evil, Dinkas are bad, Dinkas are this and that" Then he will turn around and say. My wife is a lovely Dinka girl, she is a very good person. How do you call that? Hypocrisy, right? That’s what I am talking about.

                That’s how Kiir’s sycophants behave. In Uganda, Kenya and indeed in Khartoum, politician participating in the IGAD HLRF are in constant fear of being snatched and detained in Juba. If wouldn’t worry even if I lived in Canada or the US as South Sudanese are looked down there anyway. Kiir has officially made South Sudanese a bunch of laughing stock!

    • 1 September 2018 16:55, by Khent


      Your pathetic little take on geopolitical dynamics is hilarious. Khartoum was *forced* into signing the CPA by Washington as part of its "war on terror" and through the pressure exerted by the Congressional Black Caucus; it had nothing to do with some State sponsors of Islamic terror wanting "mental peace".

      • 1 September 2018 17:03, by Khent

        The Ngok have already demonstrated their desire to be part of South Sudan, so I don’t know where you got the laughable idea that they’re "receptive" to being occupied by Khartoum. Feel free to provide some sort of metric in support of your ’argument’.

        • 1 September 2018 18:07, by Eastern


          How far has that "demonstration" by the Ngok people to be part of South Sudan gone? The Ngok may want to be lumped together with their kit and kin in South Sudan but certainly the Sudan is keeping Abyei for now. Kiir can’t afford to rock the boat. I don’t waste time quoting sources. I leave you to scratch your head!

          • 1 September 2018 18:20, by Khent

That you’re not trying to be funny is precisely why you’re so darn entertaining. And ideas?

The jellaba in their desperate attempts to justify their hold of ancient Sudan convoluted historical facts. Reliable sources? Like it was jienges that single-handedly liberated SS? Wow

                      There’s no "sophistry" here, and I don’t actually regard this to be a debate. "Ahead of the curve"? LOL! You’re clearly delusional. No stringent, unfair or unreasonable demands were placed on you; you were simply asked to demonstrate that the Ngok (in opposition to their referendum and everything else) are "receptive" to being held hostage by Khartoum.

                      • 1 September 2018 21:51, by Eastern


                        Nobody is holding any Ngok dinka hostage in Khartoum. It is the Ngok people will maintain their Sudanese status. Has the regime in Juba recognised the result of the Abyei Referendum of 2013...? With Bashir reforming the SPLA militias and conveying South Sudanese oil to the market, will Kiir have the guts to put Abyei issue on the table before Al Bashir....

                        • 1 September 2018 22:05, by Khent


                          Ah, I see... so the results of the Abyei Referendum (with 99% opting to rejoin South Sudan) is actually evidence of them being "receptive" to being occupied by Khartoum? That Salva Kiir is a death-deserving traitor cannot change the fact that the people actually want to rejoin South Sudan — in opposition to your laughable lie.

                          • 1 September 2018 22:12, by Khent

                            ..You specifically claimed that it was the people of Abyei that were "receptive" to being under Khartoum, and when you could not maintain that absurd lie - you shifted the goal-post to Juba, as though the people of Abyei and Salva’s regime were one and the same. It’s a non sequitur.

                  • 1 September 2018 21:25, by Khent


                    Historical facts are not quite as subjective as standards of beauty and will invariably have the opposing side providing counter material and rebuttals. Your special little friend made the claim that the people of Abyei were receptive to being held hostage by Khartoum... and (unsurprisingly) could not back it up.

                      Abyei issue following the conclusion of the damn IGAD HLRF in Khartoum is a foregone conclusion. Bona Malual knows what he was talking about. Again, NAS refuses final peace document. Next?

                        You’re the one who’s ranting here by introducing immaterial distractions. You’re projecting, little man. You have yet to provide an ounce of evidence for your laughable claim that the Ngok want to remain part of Sudan. Bona Malual’s words don’t help your case in the slightest.

                          The debate was on "South Sudan’s NAS refuses final peace document". Your fellow dinka came with claim that he knows me. You poked your nose deeper to sniff whatever was the substance of knowing my personality and whereabouts...Typical of you, the debate on NAS got destructed. You know I can never agree on a thing with you;we have a clear point of departure.

                            I would not have felt the need to call you out if you had not lied about the people of Abyei and how they were "receptive" to being occupied by Khartoum — in opposition to *reality*. I admonished my tribesman for threatening you, you moron. I don’t need you to agree with me on anything.

                            Are you that stupid? How many bad things you said about Dinka tribe? For Peace to come people change, and express language of peace, that’s what I am doing. I need peace. Dinka is this or Dinka is that will not change anything. You need to sit down with Dinka for your own peace to come unless you want to live fury for the rest of your life.

    To all those out there, NAS and PDM remain the only hope of those longing for change of the status quo in Juba. The only two buses left at the bus rank are the aforementioned two coaches!

    • 1 September 2018 21:32, by South South


      Iam not sure NAS which has already broke up into two bodies and very small PDM will last for a few months if all parties sign the peace. It’s a question of very short time and we will not hear anything called NAS or PDM. Remember where you hear it first.

      • 1 September 2018 21:38, by Eastern

        South South,

        You have to be sure of what you comment on.....NAS still remains one: the other NAS which a bastard called Khalid Butrous and one Ugandan Julius Tabuley attempted to lead fizzled out when Kiir refused to take them in! PDM is alive and kicking; what’s you problem?

        • 1 September 2018 21:50, by South South

          I don’t have any problem, Iam very happy because peace is coming to South Sudan. Small things like NAS and PDM will come back to Juba soon and we will take them in as brothers and give them some positions in our government. There is no threat or concern about these two small brothers. They will be back when they are alone.

          • 1 September 2018 21:54, by Eastern

            South South,

            It’s Paul Malong who is SOON returning home not NAS nor PDM....Let the party in Juba begin with those who are in agreement with the outcome of the Khartoum peace jokes. Those who don’t agree with the outcome of the sham peace talks know where to "mourn" from....

            • 1 September 2018 22:00, by South South

              Everybody is coming back to Juba, not Paul Malong alone. NAS and PDM are not that fool to stay in bushes alone without doing anything to South Sudan and to themselves. Juba will be booming soon, it’s already boom, our SSP is gaining everyday and when 3 million barrels a day kick in, South Sudan will be a big thing in Africa.

              • 1 September 2018 22:07, by Eastern

                South South,

                In 1972 when "everybody" went to Juba after signing the Addis Ababa Agreement, some people remained in the bushes of southern Sudan, Ethiopia and Zaire (now DR Congo). Don’t be exited about the Khartoum peace jokes....

                • 1 September 2018 22:13, by South South

                  Wrong, in 1972, no single one remained in the bushes of Southern Sudan or Ethiopia or Zaire (now DRC). The only two people I know who refused peace agreement are Mayar Akoon and Gordon Mortat. Gordon Martat had to go to exile in England and Mayar Akoon accepted to work for Mabouto until he died.

                  • 1 September 2018 22:34, by Eastern

                    South South,

                    So are you right? So it’s only Mayar Akoon and Gordon Muortat, two dinka men that you remember? Samuel Gai Tut Chan, Nuer and leader of the Anya Nya two is forgotten or indeed denied his right place in history! This is why I have issues with the dinka!

                    • 1 September 2018 22:41, by South South


                      Samuel Gai Tut Chan started it over again in Akobo in 1974 and he called it Anya Nya two, do you know why? Because Anya nya one ended after 1972 agreement. Gorton Martat refused openly to accept the peace and Mayar Akoon refused to live with fake Arabs again. Emanuel Abour Matong and Albino Akol Akol were to follow Gordon Martat, but they were warned by East Africa

                      • 1 September 2018 22:44, by South South


                        East Africa countries were for peace and they were backed by World Council of Churches. Emanuel Abour and Akol Akol were warned by East Africa countries if they failed to follow Lagu, they will not get any support from them. This is what will happen to NAS and PDM

    The issue of Federalism is not suitable for South Sudan, and it should not be implemented at this generation because it will divide the people of South Sudan. Equatoria will go with their region and the upper Nile, and Bar ghazal regional will run with their land and declare their new country. That is not what we want now.
    The people of South Sudan do not know the meaning of federalism because nobody has educated them about it, so the only person that knows and talks about the implementation of federalism in the whole of South Sudan is Thomass Cirillo. The National Salvation Front (NAS) of Thomas Cirillo should understand that this is not the time to talk about federalism.

    Implementation of Federalism

    The adoption of federalism however should occur in the future when all the people and the children of South Sudan have been literate from illiteracy. When the times comes in the near future about the formation and the adaptation of federalism into the constitution, everyone will be able to read it and understand it in its entirety.

    Let the people of South Sudan learn to figure out how to work things out first from the beggining so that in the near future they can do much better especially as the people and the country progress intellectually based on literacy rate of the people of this country.

    We cannot accept to have federated states because federalism can lead a country to wars and splits and divisions because it cannot work in the absence of total freedom in its entirety. Confidently, I can say to you that "The National Salvation Front (NAS) do not know what they are talking about because it is a confusion.
    It is confusing because they are talking about the division of the country and nobody is ready for that because we believe that we can do better, but to do better, our minds need to change first and diverged through eradication of illiteracy in the country and this will take time.
    The eradication of illiteracy will make people do better and will make them make better decisions for their country because many people will be able to read, translate and give their opinions about what best for this country. If Federalism is the best system to govern the country, the people of South Sudan would know in the future. But we have first to improve our minds through education and eliminated our tribal minds through schooling because the Unity of any country is cemented through knowledge, the power of ideas.
    The National Salvation Front (NAS) of General Thomas Cirillo has

    • 2 September 2018 09:57, by jubaone

      I see your fears for federalism. Your argument is terse, ill-thought and depicts a sense of worthlessness. If SS in 1947 argued for federalism at a time almost all were illiterate, demanding it now makes sense with a more literate population. Simply stated, jienges are worthless without Equatoria and clinging onto a country that is already split along ethnic fault lines is simply stup

      • 2 September 2018 10:04, by jubaone

        Equatorians know what federalism is, if jienges don’t know that, it’s your business to go tell them. Equatorians can’t wait till all jienges become literate and knowledgeable on federalism. For Equatorians, federalism means; jienge-free governance. We can’t have jienges all over the place. Only if they were civilised and progressive. Sadly, we Equatorians must also think for them. No.
