African and Ethiopian officials call for restraint in Sudan

June 29, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The African Union envoy and Ethiopian mediator Saturday called on the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) to exercise restraint and to avoid what may undermine negotiations.

The two officials made their joint call in a press conference held in Khartoum before protests the opposition FFC scheduled to organise to recall their rejection of military rule in Sudan on the occasion of the 30 anniversary of a coup that brought al-Bashir to power in 30 June 1989.

"We call on the political actors to show in this delicate circumstance the highest degree of responsibility and restraint and to refrain from any act or statement that disturbs the atmosphere and obstructs reaching an agreement," AU envoy Mohamed El Hacen Lebatt in a joint press conference.

The two African officials further called on the international community to redouble its efforts to support joint African mediation until an agreement is reached to achieve peace and political stability in the country.

The Troika countries, UK, U.S. and Norway released a joint statement calling on the TMC to respect the right to freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly and to avoid any use of violence against peaceful protests the opposition plan to hold on Sunday.

They also reaffirmed their support for the demand of the Sudanese people for a peaceful, agreed transition towards democracy in Sudan and the ongoing African Union-Ethiopian mediation.

The statement called on the Sudanese parties to engage with the African Union-Ethiopian proposal to achieve a peaceful democratic transition through the formation of a civilian-led transitional government.

      Paul this headline was meant to mislead. Abesh (ethiopia) has crushed and rounded up her recent days attempted coup plotters. But there they are, lecturing another country country about what do with her own affairs. No African country even uttered about the crack down of coup plotters in ethiopia. In Libya, there is a mess that was created by the Europeans and their US attack dog as mercenaries and were paid by the gulf Arab states to do the job>>>

        But the African Union (the AU), the regional blocks like ECOWAS, IGAD or SADC cowered. But when it comes to issues of South Sudan and North Sudan, then every piece of trash in Africa and around the world always poke his/her long nose or neck into. Since these countries are considered to be where the money is to be made of them-----in other words, to be Geopolitical chess game or football played like then East and West Germany during the then so-called COLD WAR and the criminals behind the current mess here in South Sudan and North Sudan hope that may succeed in the re-unification of South Sudan and North Sudan>>>>

          There are some evils in North Sudan, the devil infested lsland of England and their evil juus (so-called israel) who even pray and swear that their cannot be North Sudan and their own economic interest livelihoods without South Sudan and the South Sudanese people and these vermin have ’sobataged our country and our people’ with their puppets/stooges like Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Pagan Amuom, Thomas Cirillo and other traitors who have sold themselves and their souls to foreign interest groups. And of course we have a massive South Sudanese population who don’t the dirty game being played over their backs by the countries they always called their allies or uncles>>>>

            But these lowly informed South Sudanese idiots playing dumb would be the first ones to wake up like spook birds later and throw tantrums like babies after the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), so-called israelis, English people and some of their Bantuses took over their villages like our North Sudan, Gambella region or like some parts of Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa or Namibia. But as far as we are concerned, not a single Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan would be touched by these vermin. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM>>>>

              There are evils in the US, the UK, israel and some of their creeps in between who consider South Sudan and South Sudanese people their most strategically entities to be always used by them to achieve their own selfish Geopolitical interests over their back. But telling the real truth to our lowly informed South Sudanese losers that the US, the UK, their UN and their Israel attack dog don’t give a damn about them. They are just after our resources, lands, our Nile waters and of course to fight the present of Chinese companies by proxies>>>>

                Countries like Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia) and North Sudan have no resources. But South Sudanese has and so does the DR Congo. But the criminals in the US, the UK, their gulf Arab states financiers, their israel attack dog and some of their creeps here in the AU and IGAD have projected *Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia) and North Sudan to be made ’manufacturing hubs’ by the rich criminals from Europe, the US, Asia, the US and others. And for those countries to be made manufacturing centres, resources from countries like South Sudan or DR Congo must be made collaterals to secure fundings for projects>>>>

                  going to israel and gulf Arab states to go and cause problems in those countries. But the most outrageous thing is. Why do some criminals in the African Union and IGAD think, they can make a living over the back of others? Again, why don’t our South Sudanese senior politicians or PhD doctors tell these other countries to be very careful since major of South Sudanese will eventually know this dirty game and will back fire pretty badly and the region will again be at war?>>>>

                    The Answer to this is, our PhD doctors are globalists and members of secret societies of *illuminati, Ashoka, Commission for foreign relations (CFR), the US states department in other words, the most powerful secret commission that has openly taken over the US government, the "Trialateral commission", the UN NEW WORLD ORDER government. Barack Hussein Obama and other bunch of creeps are members of these secret societies and their NEW WORLD ORDER government>>>>

                      South Sudan and indeed the whole of the Sudan was projected to be where the so-called NEW WORLD ORDER GOVERNMENT experiment to be *BEGGIN IN* And that is why no every Hyena here in Africa, the US, the UK, their UN, NGOs and some of their creeps are ’So fixated’ on our country and our people. The evil juus (so-called israelis) went sent their nonesenses in Florida, and named it after their Hebrew nonsense that from the BEGGIGINING. The piece of trash went and failed. The European song contest was played on the 16/05/2019, our mighty SPLM/A in Tel-Aviv, and this European song contest (Eurovision) was to usher in a COLD WAR>>>>

                        To be fought by proxies in Middle East, Asia, South America and of course between Russia in Ukraine, Cuba, Venezuela and between Russia in Syria and Central Asia and between China in Asia, North Korea, Asia and Pacific island small countries and here in Africa. And South Sudan and North Sudan are their centre of their universe to be fought over by proxies. But the evils have step on the wrong people feet, us, the Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan to be precise, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. The evils love affair with our country and our people has gone too far. And the evils are going to be bombed out of our country and over our people pretty badly once and for all.>>>>

We keep informing our lowly informed South Sudanese losers to let us round up everything that is connected to evil *white Americans, English people, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, evil juus (so-called israelis), Arab of gulf Arab states, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) and some of their Bantuses, kill them and throw them into the Nile* and be done with them. These vermin will never leave our country and our people alone. They even call South Sudanese people their energy>>>>
