S. Sudan’s Kiir urges citizens to return home


August 26, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has urged his country’s citizens residing in Uganda to return home and participate in the implementation of the revitalized peace accord.

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir (L) greets Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni at State House, Entebbe, August 24, 2019 (PPU)

Kiir made the remarks at the end of his two-day state visit to Uganda.

“Now the guns are almost silent. The forces that are still resistant are not a big threat. I welcome all those that are willing to return home to participate in the transitional government before the national elections that are underway for people to take a decision on who is to lead them,” he said.

Uganda hosts Africa’s largest refugee population – one and a quarter million people, with two-thirds having fled conflict in South Sudan.

In September 2018, South Sudan’s conflicting parties signed a final peace deal in Addis Ababa, after negotiations brokered by the Sudanese government and mandated by the regional bloc, (IGAD).

However, although last year’s peace accord raised hopes for some South Sudanese that they could soon return home, the fragile peace has discouraged many from leaving Uganda’s refugee camps.

Meanwhile, two leaders reportedly discussed matters relating to the extension of the road and electricity to South Sudan’s capital, Juba.

Museveni, an ally of Kiir, was quoted saying South Sudanese do not need war but peace and elections in order to stabilize their country.

South Sudan descended into violence in December 2013 when President Kiir accused his former deputy, Riek Machar of plotting to overthrow his rule, accusations the latter dismissed.

The war has killed tens of thousands and displaced millions of others, prompting the United Nations to rank the country as Africa’s biggest refugee crisis.

    If you don’t distance yourself from being an ally to Museveni and be leader of South Sudanese peoples attended to their needs and listen their views, you will always be useful idiot in the eyes of Museveni and Jinubeen as well.... Peace come at heart, and not just words..

        "Now the guns are almost silent. The forces that are still resistant are not a big threat" The above quote from the president himself, is not compelling.... Guns sizes it does not matter when it’s comes to killings because gun is a gun and any gun, can kills.... It’s seems this unwanted president, is far from committing himself to bring peace by all means to our beloved nation!!

          Bring Peace first in to the country, where will these people leaving while the country is at war?

          • 27 August 2019 10:42, by jubaone

            Oh yes, our fellow Madi and Acholi are eager to return to their ancestral lands, but first jienge settlers and squatters must return to their luaks. Do you want Madi and Acholi people to go to Jonglei or Warrap? Jienges have no fucking business still hanging around in Equatoria lands. God wasn’t a fool to give each one his/her space in SS. Land4Peace. Period.

                Explain why you are still squatting in Kenya and also why jienges are still in Kakuma, Uganda and elsewhere? They are scared cuz most will starve to death. The unknown gunmen may have no persons to rob. Afterall they say "you cant pickpocket a naked jienge", he has nothing on. 😂

                  I see you often have naked men in your mind. Nasty ass faggot. You dream of naked men and their cocks? You even eluded to wanting to pickpocket one in order to touch another mans ass(or genitals).

                  Europeans weren’t kidding when they observed all the disgusting homoseuxal behaviour among equatorians.

                    Visit your father’s ancestral land and you will see your distant relatives going naked like savages. That is why we call you "aryan jienge". When teenage luakjiengs are on their own in cattle camps, they practice sodomy. The same youth recruited as nyors are the ones committing rapes everyehere. Dirty bastards.

                The kiirminal ordered for 32 states and just tell us, why jienge cockroaches are still squatting in Nimule? Why are you still hiding your shithole in Kenya? Dont you have a state? Are you like a street dog? Hopeless miscreant. Oh South Sudan, or Juba! Mention your state and town loser.

            • 27 August 2019 15:04, by Eastern


              The Madi and Acholi still want their land vacated, if Kiir can provide free food to Dinka refugees certainly you will see them trooping home in droves. Equatorian land still needs liberation from the sons and daughters of the soil...!

                Big coward called Eastern is out to the open like a big snake which senses earthquake. Maybe monkeys can fight for you. Constructions of the roads between South Sudan and Uganda is up. Construction of the roads between Kenya and South Sudan is firing up. Rail road between South Sudan and Sudan is real, in your face.

                  But WFP can airdrop some goodies for jienges if they so wish. The problem is most are terrified of Murles and Nuers and have chosen Nimule as an exit point. I wonder why even the Kiirminal buried his jienge wife in Nimule and not in Warrap! I’ve often stated: jienge vagrants, traders and criminals look for free stay, food and loot. Disgusting cockroaches.

                  WFP feeds jenge only in South Sudan...! Equatorians are in the bushes and the refugee camps. So fo Kiir to ask refugees to return home is like saying he’s going to share the petro-dollars with them, whereas not...!

                  Look here, Museveni wants to resend UPDF to South Sudan under the guise of road construction and extending electricity to Juba. Introduction of ANY FOREIGN FORCES outside the UNMISS renders the R-ARCSS ineffective...! Clean that egg off your face, fool..!!

                The war is on already and it doesn’t matter how long in the end all jienges will go that I’m very certain. They are desperately hoping M7 will protect them forever. M7 is mortal and one day he will go like the rest, but Equatoria will remain Equatoria for its people. Period. Jienges cant live freely with Nuers, Collos and Murles and they certainly can’t with Equatorians. None wants them.

    We are not coming home because home is not safe for us and we have no place to stay, no food to eat, no security, no peace, and we no access to education in South Sudan. President Salva Kiir’s statement is misleading statement for the South Sudanese refugees residing in Uganda for the last five years due to ongoing crisis in the country.
