December 26, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudanese army chief of staff General Gabriel Jok Riak and the SPLA-IO Deputy Chief of staff Lt. Gen. James Koang Chuol Ranley joined thousands of South Sudanese in Bentiu to celebrate the revitalized peace agreement last Monday.

The function which was organized by the Northern Liech Governor Nguen Monytuil Wijang was also attended by the SPLM-IO Governor of Northern Liech Tor Tunguar who came with an important political and military delegation.

"The SPLA-IO thanks the organizers of the peace celebration for disseminating the peace message to the suffering civilians who desperately need peace now more than anything," said SPLA-IO Deputy Spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel said in a statement on Wednesday.

The celebration was attended by a huge crowd from Bentinu and IDPs camps in the areas. Also, Gabriel added that some civilians came from Sudan to take part in the event.

Speakers at the celebration reiterated their commitment to the full implementation of the peace agreement. They also vowed to work together to achieve national reconciliation and development of the oil-rich area.

During the five-year civil war, Bentiu witnessed fierce fighting that forced nearly 120,000 civilians to seek refuge at the UN-protected camps in the area.

SPLA-IO Deputy Chief of staff Lt. Gen. James Koang Chuol Ranley arrived in Juba last Thursday 21 December take part in the meeting of the Joint Defence Board (JDB) that exercises command and control over all forces during the Pre-Transitional Period.

Northern Liech Minister of Youth Culture and Sport, Lam Tungwar Kueigwong posted Wednesday on his Facebook page that Governor Manytuil met with SPLA-IO leadership to discuss troops cantonment areas and formation of join forces to deal with crimes across the state including SPLA-IO-controlled areas.

    That,s good step South Sudanese.

    The celeberation was held just as an effort to mute the recent GLARING ALLEGATIONS....!

      Furious, furious and furious, that’s the only thing you can do monkey. Good for our government and IO to celebrate peace in Bentu. We don’t give damn care to a few naked monkeys who are crying babies. Shut up and join us. You are nothing, but shit.

      • 27 December 2018 16:44, by Eastern

        South South,

        I really keep your arse burning...!

        The idea that peace will come through pious proclamations and photo ops, is just a conspiracy to derail the shaky agreement that you are day and night praying should stand. The sooner you and like-minded step aside the better for the shaky R-ARCSS..!

        • 27 December 2018 16:58, by South South


          What itching your ass about peace in South Sudan? Take it or leave it, simple and clear. We don’t play games with monkeys.

          • 27 December 2018 17:22, by Eastern

            South South,

            The word is no longer ITCHING but BURNING....! Please choose where you belong, as my machine gun won’t deferentiate between JENGES....!

      Stop bullshitting around! Be respectful to others and follow your dead dream of NAS! You will remain a loser point blank. You will regret this very best federalism we have in South Sudan. 32 states under one God!

        Now there’s peace in your junk states, you’re kindly requested to return and start developing it. Idling, squatting and throwing stupid insults which can’t provide any food for your starving jienges won’t help you. We also want all PoCs in Juba shut down and all Nuers transported back to start new lives.

        • 27 December 2018 11:00, by Kush Natives

          Think twice monkey! Before throwing out anything that your freakn stomach doesn’t want, especially when dreaming about equatoria as you own, I begged you to back off, you’re causing unwanted attention to others, all the places you just mentioned are under our army SSDF. I am giving you another 20 years in exile. Otherwise, everything else under control in South Sudan. Case closed! Next..

            When tailless monkeys are left alone and expected to develop themselves, they just can’t. Even if we gave you entire Equatoria, you losers are just worthless miscreants. From nothing comes nothing. Perhaps you should allow jellaba masters to come and develop you cockroaches.

        Kush Natives,

        Fuck you, dick head...! Which God are you talking about, Nhialic? Have you gained anything? Running from Juba to Dr Congo, being confined in a farmhouse and then being offered the measly FVP is achievement? Now who feeds of these 32 tribal centres if not you morons!

        • 29 December 2018 05:12, by Pakuai

          You & Mr. Jubaone seem to have effected a way of always not telling the truth. How many Dinkas/Jiengs have fled to DR Congo? Not even one idiot. The only idiots who fled to DR Congo were Mr. Riek Machar goons who chased out of Juba in July 2016 after their ball carried them away to take power by force. All these propaganda bullsh*ts from the NGOs that South Sudanese have fled to DR Congo>

          • 29 December 2018 05:19, by Pakuai

            Central Africa Republic (CAR) and South Darfur are nothing but mere propaganda machine by some creeps who have made South Sudan’s conflicts their cash cow. Yes, there are South Sudanese who have fled to North Sudan, Kenya, ethiopia & North Sudan. And to bluntly state it, Those who fled to North Uganda in July 2016 shouldn’t have ran to Uganda at all>>>

            • 29 December 2018 05:25, by Pakuai

              But they were spurred to run to Uganda by some people who benefited from the current war in South Sudan for instance, Mr. Riek Machar, Thomas Cirillo, their allies, the UN & the NGOs. After the 15/12/2013 foiled coup attempt in Juba. The subsequent armed rebellion confined to greater Upper Nile region & there was no violence in greater Equatoria region & greater Bhar El Gazelles regions>>>

              • 29 December 2018 05:32, by Pakuai

                But when Mr. Riek Machar & his low lives came back to Jub IN early 2016 after their sellout so-called ARCISS that sold our country to foreign interest groups in the hotels, bars & brothels of Adis Ababa. Mr. Riek Machar came & mobilized some Equatorians to join his destructive movement----so-called SPLM/A-IO & promised them with high ranks. Mabior Rebecca Nyandeng was even caught out bragging>>>

And shootout side J1 ensued. Mr. Riek Machar’s body guards were all gunned down including his own son except himself & the ones who were inside the J1>

Mr. Riek Machar was disarmed with a pistol on his coat in side the J1 complex & told to come back in the morning for a meeting with Mr. Salva Kiir and was escorted back to his Jebel resident by Mr. Salva Kiir & the government soldiers.

And when his (Riek Machar) forces were chased out of Juba right up to Eastern DR Congo.

All the public service vehicles & commercial vehicles were often arbitrarily stopped and the Dinkas/Jiengs were ordered out & killed. And when the government of South Sudan sent in the army to those areas to investigate what was happening>>>

                        • 29 December 2018 06:07, by Pakuai

                          Then the criminals ran to Northern Uganda & then went & lie through their dirty teeth that they were being targeted by the Dinkas/Jenges government simply because they were Equatorians, really? Equatoria is not an homogeneous entity that the Dinkas/Jenges can lower themselves to target them simply because they are Equatorians??>>>>>

      What heavy price did you jienges pay? You had no wars in your junk states but simply fled to Equatoria, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya to be fed like small children instead of cultivating or working hard on your own. Refugee camps in Uganda are full of jienges, why? Why are you still living in Uganda when you could be in your luaks? Just a loser mongrel.

        You are terrified of federalism cuz you´re worthless on your own. But do not expect that Equatorians will wipe your naked butts like "giant kids" all the time. Grow up nigga! Go home and help your starving relatives and leave us Equatorians to develop ourselves. You losers want only free things and good life without working for them.
