Machar is needed to disseminate peace in South Sudan: spokesperson


Machar (C) speaks to the SSBC after his meeting with the NPTC members in Khartoum on 23 October 2018
June 26, 2019 (JUBA) - A spokesperson of South Sudan main opposition SPLM-IO called on the East African bloc, IGAD to end the confinement of its leader Riek Machar in Khartoum pointing to his needed role to disseminate peace in the country.

On Tuesday, David Shearer UNMISS head told the UN Security Council that regular meetings between President Salva Kiir and SPLM-IO leader Machar are needed to boost the slow peace implementation process.

"These leader-to-leader meetings, preferably held in Juba, are critical because trust and confidence can’t cold start the day a new unified government is formed," Shearer said.

"We call the IGAD and the international community to release the Chairman of the SPLM/IO Dr Riek Machar to lead the dissemination of the Revitalised peace agreement with his brother President Salva Kiir, because once the citizens own the agreement," said Manawa Peter Gatkuoth SPLM-IO Deputy Chairperson of the National Committee for Information and Public Relations.

"They will respect it and this will mean no more violence in the country," Manawa further told Sudan Tribune.

The SPLM-IO media official mad his statements after a workshop on joint dissemination of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of the South Sudan (R-ARCSS) held in Juba by the National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC) in partnership with community Empowerment For Progress Organization (CEPO).

"We believe that the dissemination of the R-ARCSS is a vital aspect of the implementation process as stipulated in the agreement because the objective is to ensure that the people of South Sudan understand and own it," said Manawa.

He said the government, from now onwards, should stop using the national TV and radio to advance its agenda.

"We commence the work of the NPTC, through its Sub-Committee for Dissemination to design comprehensive action plan covering the activities, time frame, responsible bodies, target groups and indicators of each activity," he added.

      This is a good call indeed.. The innocent man shouldbe release since his detention does not stop the war..

    Very SHAMEFUL for UN to be lamenting to IGAD...! IGAD the draught and desertification organisation cum club of dictators is killing more people through very poor diplomacy. Kiir should not be massaged but rather forced to act as is required of him in the RARCSS....!

    • 27 June 2019 15:01, by jubaone

      For us as Equatorians, peace will only come once the last ienge quits Nimule to allow Madi and Acholi returnees to resettle on their ancestral lands. Peace will come, once the PoCs in Juba are closed down and Nuers repartriated to their areas. Anything less than this, is jienge and nyagat crap.

      • 27 June 2019 15:58, by Midit Mitot


        Whom are you calling Nyagats? try to affiliate your politics well. You are now hitting even your political die-heart and allied OK!

        • 27 June 2019 17:39, by The Rhino

          Midit Mitot,

          Nyagats food lovers will never be our "die-heart" allies.If that were the case,Kiir would not have been in power that long!

          • 28 June 2019 09:50, by Midit Mitot

            The Rhino,

            You so call Equatorians are really Nyam-nyam (food eaters), you were the ones supporting Kiir government in 2013-14 war, thinking that your food would be boosting but in vain. Good enough Kiir had killed you too.

            • 28 June 2019 19:46, by The Rhino

              Midit Mitot,

              Had he/Kiir massacred Equatorians in Juba door to door like he did to your people in Dec.2013,I swear to God this fucking jienge would be dead by now!His fellow jienge savages would be having a very tough time surviving in Greater Equatoria region.Even so,apparently jienges are only contained in big towns,this will remain so until they get on their fucking knees.Now the killings.....

              • 28 June 2019 19:53, by The Rhino

                Midit Mitot,

                ..in Dec.2013 took place before the world.Regional and International leaders confirmed that there wasn’t any coup attempt.But yet after all the massacres,hungry nyagats swarmed back to Juba and joined Kiir’s rotten regime,its disgusting!So,next time you post a comment,check up on your past,fucking idiot!

        • 29 June 2019 11:29, by jubaone

          Midit Mitot,
          Those Nuer wieuw like Ezekiel Lol, Ruai Koang, Dr Gai, Gatluak Kew, that have sold their souls for money and food. A Nuer is Naath upright person like Samuel Gaitut, William Nyuon or Riek Machar who stand their ground and are principled. I hope I’ve helped

          • 30 June 2019 06:31, by Anthony

            A bari worshipping his nuer masters. Have fun sucking nuer dick. Your small monkey tribe is nothing without the nuer. The truth hurts slave ape.

      • 27 June 2019 17:25, by Eastern


        IGAD is putting a patchwork on a rotten piece of fabric hoping that bringing together KIIRCHAR would pacify South Sudan whereas not....! There’s a lot of hate which any marriage of convinince between Kiir and Machar CANNOT sooth - the jenge and nyigat should know where they belong!

      • 27 June 2019 17:28, by The Rhino


        Many of those filthy jienges squatting in Acholi and Madi-land were indeed welcomed there by worthless general Johnson Juma Okot the bastard!This slave idiot brutally murdered his own people(chiefs,etc)without any remorse.He sold massive territories to rogue bloodthirsty jienge ministers(K.Manyang Juuk and others)who in turn use those regions as grazing zones for their cattle&marauding..

        • 27 June 2019 17:32, by The Rhino


          ...jienge rapists/murderers.Even during Paul Malong’s era, useless J.J.Okot was the one leading Anyors to kill local farmers in and around Nimule,Pageri,etc.This bastard and other pad dogs will never escape their punishments!

      • 30 June 2019 06:33, by Anthony

        You’re not a madi or an acholi. You’re just a primitive bari slave. Leae those tribes alone and mind your business and worry about which monkey you’ll catch for dinner, stupid villager.

    Yes, I believe Dr.Machar can be used or mobilized to promote peace, and national reconciliation. Peace dissemination need us all whether you are from Government or Opposition. It’s our collect responsibility to disseminate the peace to all South Sudanese people in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and DR Congo.

    Once again people might be getting it wrong by personalizing the political issue of South Sudan as a nation that consists of nearly twelve million people. The issue of South Sudan is not entirely Riek Machar’s or Salva Kiir’s making. The issue is lack of people’s centered constitution and a breakdown of law and order. South Sudan as a nation needs to be reconstituted by having new institutions.

    • 28 June 2019 12:14, by Pakuai

      I thought these SPLM/IO losers with their Riek Machar magician often call themselves to be the most well educated people in South Sudan? My arse. Didn’t the government of South Sudan all along been asking your Riek Machar foreign puppet to haul his treasonous arse back to South Sudan, but instead requested another 6 months for his Ngundeng Buong magician to somehow perform some miracles for him in 6 months?!! Where does the IGAD comes in here to be the one holding your Riek Machar in Khartoum ya fellows?>>>>

      • 28 June 2019 12:26, by Pakuai

        Besides, if your Riek Machar was that intelligent and was always working in the ’interest of South Sudan and the South Sudanese people’ then how come he is always used by foreign powers to achieve their own interests over South Sudan and over South Sudanese people? Don’t you fellows claimed that your Riek Machar has a PhD in mechanical engineering from Bradford University in the devil infested lsland of England? And Mr. Lam Akol with PhD in chemical engineering from the University of London in the England?. Fellows, tell us how many intellectuals in other parts of the world ’think or behave’ like our South Sudanese PhD doctors like Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol and others?>>>>

        • 28 June 2019 12:36, by Pakuai

          From 1991, 2013 and 2016, these so-called PhD doctors have betrayed South Sudan and the South Sudanese people with their nasty inflated egos to be South Sudan and South Sudanese leaders at all costs, however the criminals have been proven I’ll fitted to be leaders over anyone whatsoever. The foreign puppets/stooges have killed far too many South Sudanese people with their divisive politics and lust for power over the backs of other people. Yes, South Sudanese have paid enormous price for trusting these foreign puppets/stooges. And still there still some South Sudanese who are so blinded by these criminals>>>>

          • 28 June 2019 12:50, by Pakuai

            These South Sudanese fools who are not seeing Mr. Riek Machar and Lam Akol as very dangerous or existential threat to South Sudan and South Sudanese people survival are the same South Sudanese fools who always lie through foolish teeth that their Riek Machar and Lam Akol fought for the independence of South Sudan and the South Sudanese people from our cloned arab North Sudan! Riek Machar and Lam Akol backstabbed the SPLM/A in 1991 and joined our enemies, went and signed their bogas peace, called Khartoum peace agreement (KPA) in 1997 with our cloned arab North Sudan, a bogas peace agreement Mr. Omar Hassan El Bashir and his leutenants shredded in front of fools and told them to get f-cked>>>>

            • 28 June 2019 13:00, by Pakuai

              Mr. Riek Machar and Lam Akol came back to mother SPLM/A humiliated like the biblical "prodigal sons" and were welcomed by the South Sudanese people and given back high ranking positions. Because South Sudanese people believe with unity, they can move mountains. But Mr. Riek Machar and Lam Akol don’t seem to read the South Sudanese people lips. And in 2013 and 2016, they started their quest for power at all costs where they left it in 1991 and ran to our arch enemy, North Sudan for supplies and protection. Really fellows, what is the business of your Riek Machar and Lam Akol with our arch enemy?>>>>
