November 11, 2018 (JUBA) - SPLA-IO military commanders visited their peace partners of the South Sudan People’s Defence Forces (SSPDF) in four areas where peace is at risk to build trust and enhance its implementation process.

SPLA-IO military spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel on Sunday said that the visits took place in Bieh, Imotong, Raja, Yei River states.

The purpose of the visits, which took place on Saturday 10 November except for Raja as it was held on Friday, was to discuss peace implementation and build confidence between the local commanders from both sides.

"Freedom of movement and accessibility as directed by our two chiefs of staff but those travelling will have to carry departure order and unarmed," said Gabriel when he spoke about the outcome of a meeting held in Waat town of Bieh State.

However, he said the meeting stressed that cattle raiders and criminals should be apprehended.

The state is located in an area where the cattle raiding is a very common activity, as it borders Fangak to the west, Central Upper Nile to the north, Latjoor and Akobo to the east, and Jonglei to the south.

For the willingness visit in Kajo-Keji of Yei River State, The meeting aimed at preparing a meeting of the senior commanders from both sides to take place soon.

For the Imotong State, the meeting took place in Magwi town as the SPLA IO delegation met the SSPDF commander, commissioners of Magwi and Ayaci and the state governor.

The same for Raja State, the SPLA-IO visiting team met in Raja town with the acting governor and the state military command.

During a meeting of the CTSAMVM Technical Committee (CTC) held in Khartoum on 7 November, CTSAMVM Chair Ibrahim Abdeljellil pointed out that some areas still experience hostilities.

The meeting identified that Leer, Wau and Yei are the areas where there is a need to focus on the confidence-building process. Accordingly, the CTC in its fourth meeting decided to increase the trust—building visits with a special focus for Yei.

    Hope I will see my lost men olders brothers for 5 years, since they converted themselves to be fake Dinka for money.

      Games, Jubaone and Rhino.
      You guys must adjusted your attitudes. Put in mind that, Dinka tribe is one of the 64 tribes within young nation and you hate us or like us then, you have no any choice left. This is the time for South Sudanese people to says for themselves enough is enough and let us moved on as a nation. We have had tried all kinds since 1991 to moment and nothing come out positively.

      • 12 November 2018 07:22, by South South

        Let them build confidence between themselves. This very important to keep peace going. Stupid people like jubaone, Eastern and The Rhino keep hitting their keyboards and say nonsense. Like yesterday, jubaone said investors are coming to Juba because of them, very stupid. Investors are in zjuba today because of our government. From 1983-2005, we haven’t seen one investor in Juba, only shit on the

          Give us concrete examples where foreign investors have invested in your junk jiengestans. Equatoria is the heart, soul and brains of SS any other junk states are economically, culturally and strategically of little interest. They have been reduced to either human zoos or open cattle grazing areas. They just don’t matter.

          • 12 November 2018 09:10, by South South

            jubao e, investors in South Sudan are everywhere in Wau, Aweil, Rumbek, Bor, Juba and others small towns a d villages because of our government. Juba has been in Bari hands for more than 22nd years, 1983-2005. The only thing they offer to put of South Sudan was shit on the street, shut up dirty old man.

            • 12 November 2018 09:12, by South South

              Correction. The only thing they offer to South Sudan was shit on the street.

              Shit onto the streets uh? These were defecated by jienges who naturally dont have toilets and shit arbitrarily anywhere like shameless cows. Sorry buddy! Is there a jienge word for toilets at all? In your villages I hear people scoop the last shit out their shitholes using dry twigs or rough stones since you have NO toilet papers: Uhh!

              South South,

              Here is the story.A jienge minister was once invited to a party.Shortly after some delicious meal, he must search for the toilet.Reaching the restroom, he didn’t know how to start with or use the toilet seat, while pressure was building up in the gut, the savage literally decided to climb on top of the seat, with all feet on the seat instate of sitting on it.Guess what happened,he...

                South South,

                ...messed up the whole toilet, everywhere shit and tormenting reek.The Equatorian host who gave the party plus some of his other Equatorians were terribly shocked with the minister’s vile toilet massacre.Top guests immediately started leaving the party, those from afar left suit the event.Now,the wicked minister was surprised to see everybody leaving the scene b’cos for him and his..

                  South South,

                  ...jienge people these types of activities are normal.Now,what is the moral of the story?

      • 12 November 2018 07:41, by jubaone

        You jienges claim you liberated SS and so entitled to "own" and run it like a cattle camp. You cunningly used the other 63 tribes for your greed when we overwhelmingly voted for separation in the Jan 2011 referendum. Today jienges run every single institution without regard to the rest. Now you have failed and way the rest to clean up your shit. No. You clean it up first.

        • 12 November 2018 07:47, by jubaone

          If anything, Riak has strategically managed to get the jienge republic crumbling. Today nyors are almost irrelevant, development even in no-war areas in jiengeland have stagnated and most have scampered for their lives to Juba, Nairobi or Kampala. JCE has become an empty talking shop of mentally challenged jienge oldies. Jienges are realizing, they are in deep shit 💩 once federalism catches up.

        • 12 November 2018 09:16, by South South

          Peace has been signed, join it or leave it. Many good people from Equatiria are holding big positions, example, vice president, speaker of the house and so on

            South South
            Equatorians get those positions through merits and hard work, jienges get theirs by default without hard work. Just be a jienge and you become a governor or minister. This explains why your junk states lag behind. Perhaps you could make some change, once we get kokora up-and-running and we throw you out of Juba.

  • 11 November 2018 21:21, by Games

    Keep continuing with those meetings and the lost family that were separated by Dinka for money would reunify like mine

    • 11 November 2018 23:33, by Kush Natives

      You still talking negative sense on Dinka tribe! There’s a great need to refresh your memory nightmare before you commented again, we’re getting tired of retarded individual like you who keep poking a almost healed wound. Dinka will not go anywhere in South Sudan, so if that’s what always drive you knot, then better hang yourself! Let the government have peace, but not Nuer and Dinka perio

      A gentle reminder, the jienge kingpin fugitive Malong. Seems you forgot about him. May be he’s another gay man like Gwn Cirillo 😁. We haven’t heard of him lately, what is happening?

    Here are the main key element from both rebels and government not to forget.
    1 the lesson of J1 must not repeat. 2 Army integration must not take long. 3 real arrangement must be done properly. 4 rebels must be retrains after serious screening. 5 all generals need screening because it is too much to sees many are promoting themselves. 6 civilians must be told to go back and do farms for themselves

  • 12 November 2018 05:49, by Games

    The new national army will be retrained or train by both Uganda and Sudan and then integrate them after their graduation. Nobody is going back to fight again. Stop worrying

  • 12 November 2018 07:00, by Lenin Bull

    Mayendit, don’t get bothered by devil deceived folks like those of Games and his colleagues. They are mad people and their arguments are arguments of mad people: No nationalism, no positive/construction contributions to national building, etc except damned tribal/satanic hatred. Mind you this was how they cooked the mess up prior to 2013 and what did they reap out of it? NOTHING but defeat.

  • 12 November 2018 08:58, by Black Nation

    Dear all, be aware that we ’re able to trace whoever is doin nonsense comments, hatred against other tribes in this forum.U ’re calling yourselves intellectuals while you ’re doin what an illiterate person do? What make U different from an illiterate person if U r doin these silly comments here? Do something that ’ll bring S.Sudan up (Unite as one people) No one ’ll divide S.Sudan into 2 countries

    • 12 November 2018 11:59, by South South

      Black Nation,
      My brother, I want you to look back to the killing of innocent people in South Sudan. Killings, displacements, tribalism, hatreds and poor talks have been by people who have very high education, like PhD holders. Our innocents uneducated people never have that culture, but wicked people with good education are the one with the blood of innocent people in their hands.

    • 12 November 2018 17:54, by Eastern

      Black Nation,

      You are the Chief Arsehole! The epitome human backwardness in modern times. Kiir has been having sleepness nights working with his inept NSS goons to silence the internet warriors without any success. Who are you Black Arsehole?!

      • 12 November 2018 17:58, by Eastern

        Black Nation, aka Black Arsehole,

        Let South South, the moron, educate you about me...I will cause you sleepless nights and more stress. Please redirect your energies in duping the masses SPLA kills when it is enraged and forces to sing and dance for it when the militia outfit is happy...!

      • 14 November 2018 07:44, by Black Nation

        Mr/Mrs Eastern, No doubt, it’s confirmed that U are insane. I have been monitoring all ur comments and found out that not even one is suitable for the progress of S. Sudan.

  • 12 November 2018 14:38, by Kenyang ll

    Partial peace or any talk that spare one bloodshed is not invain. However, current proclaimed peace is nothing but broad daylight robbery of South Sudan oil while maintaining Salva Kiir and Riek Machar, the only two, true criminals who started this war and brought all these massacre and sufferings. They belong to International C. Court at Hague.

    • 12 November 2018 14:43, by Kenyang ll

      Or they war they started will continue indefinitely.
