SPLM-IO "strongly" condemn Machar’s continued detention, demand immediate release


December 3, 2019 (KHARTOUM) – The armed opposition faction (SPLM-IO) has strongly condemned the continued detention of Riek Machar by the regional bloc (IGAD).

President Salva Kiir and opposition leader Riek Machar in Juba, October 20, 2019 (PPU)

The opposition group, in a statement, deplored President Salva Kiir’s request for immediate relocation of Machar to Juba as an essential condition for his release.

“This decision of President Kiir is reflective of ill intention,” partly reads a statement issued by Puok Both Baluang, the SPLM (IO) director for information.

The opposition group said it expected Machar to be released at the 13th IGAD Heads of State and Government Summit held on November 29 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

“However, the issue was deferred to the next ordinary summit to be held in Khartoum, Sudan for which a date has not yet been set,” it stressed.

The armed opposition further appealed to the next ordinary summit of IGAD to immediately release Machar from this unlawful restriction.

The SPLM-IO, however, reiterated its full commitment to the implementation of the peace deal in letter and spirit, as the only way to attain peace in South Sudan.

Meanwhile, the SPLM-IO congratulated Sudan for being elected as the Chair of IGAD, and encourage the IGAD new leadership to play more effective role for ensuring the full implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS).

    The condition set by Kiir is very useless and I hope he was not alone during the expression of his word or condition.

    It is somebody demand not him, it either be M7 or 100 bottles of bear

    • 4 December 2019 12:13, by Midit Mitot


      This is M7 idea and long term plan but time will come to free Dr Machar from that useless detention.

  • 4 December 2019 09:34, by Gorjang Gany

    Being drunkard it lead you to express what can not be express by human being shame on you Kiir for the idiotic demand.

  • 4 December 2019 09:40, by james john luka

    Ill intention? Which one is the good intention? Roaming around the world, begging for financial and logistical support to wage war against innocents people is the good one? Shame on those kind of oppositions.

    • 4 December 2019 10:42, by South South


      You said a few days ago that UN and United States ordered IGAD to release Riek. I can’t stop from laughing. By the way, I am back to network as I was out from it in last 5 days due to my work in remote areas of South Sudan. Very strong peace for very strong South Sudan is coming up very soon with Riek been our vice president. For pressing issues, security arrangement and number of states

      • 4 December 2019 10:46, by South South


        Continue: About these pressing issues, we are ready to find the best possible way to make good peace in our country with Kiir on the top of the ticket, then rest follow. I think that is good enough jubaone? Our people want peace and we must give them good peace. Iam asking all rebels to make right choices and come back to Juba, peace.

          • 4 December 2019 11:33, by jubaone

            South South,
            You want peace without Riek, NAS, NADAFA or SSOA then go ahead. Get peace first in your stinking jiengestans, then try that in SS. I am happy that SS will soon breakup and Equatoria goes its way. As long as all drifting jienges are contained, NO PROBLEM. The kiirminal can continue being a mere "Juba town mayor".

            • 4 December 2019 12:13, by South South


              UN and United States ordered IGAD to release Riek, I can’t stop from laughing. As for peace, we will make it possible this time. Riek is working with US, leave shit NAS and NADAFA out. We care less about them because they are very tiny minorities. Kiir MUST rule and the rest follow, how about that, I am laughing.

              • 4 December 2019 13:24, by jubaone

                South South
                He who follows a blind man is dead in brains. It’s business of the foolish majority jienges to follow their blind Kiirminal. For this reason, it becomes a moral obligation to fight him and that is what NAS is exactly doing. Jienge kuffar go home 🙉

                • 4 December 2019 17:07, by South South

                  So UN and United States put heavy press on IGAD to release Riek. I can’t stop laughing. By the way peace will ring soon in South Sudan without shit NAS, who care about monkeys!!!!

                  If the Dinkas/Jenges were the foolish majority, then you shouldn’t be screaming on the internet all the times, but to oust to have long time ago remove the foolish majority from South Sudan. jubaone, remember chap, majority rules. Go to Kenya, since when have the Turkanas, Luos, Kambas or Swahilis or Somalis, ever rule Kenya since 1963? Not that I personally know of>>>

                  • 5 December 2019 02:23, by Pakuai

                    jubaone, have you ever heard an Indian, Pakistani or Afro-Caribbean ever ruled the English people or the British people? Not really? Those communities were former British empire slaves/subjects. Some Africans who have been to the UK know how Afro-Caribbean are treated. They are third class citizen there fool. Most of them are in jails. Go to the US, I went to US>>>>

                    • 5 December 2019 02:29, by Pakuai

                      three times when I studying in Canada. In the Southern part of the US, the African American are living like they are in the third world. Most of the population in jail in the US are the African Americans or the Latinos. And that population is the minority Mr. jubaone closer. Have you heard that even Mr. Barack Hussein Obama wife, Michelle Obama said that the white house was built by her>>>

                      • 5 December 2019 02:47, by Pakuai

                        ancestors enslaved by the white people in America. Mr. jubaone, the election of Mr. Barack Hussein Obama was one just an ’overt intrigue’ to fool the African Americans, Africa people, Arabs since he has (Husseein sounding name) and Obama sounding name and hence those minorities and other minorities who worship the US would think>>>

                        • 5 December 2019 03:06, by Pakuai

                          one of their own had been eventually elected to European coveted centre of ’power and intrigue’. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama was deliberately ’snucked into the white house’ by his ’secret societies’ members of:

                              your Barack Hussein Obama charlatan even came to Kenya and Abesh (so-called ethiopia) in 2015 and came and selected his criminals from ’Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), North Sudan, Rwanda, South Africa, Djibouti, Rwanda, Somalia, Nigeria and others’ and lecture the leaders of the South Sudan and the South Sudanese people about South Sudanese people’s peace without South Sudanese>>>

No. You are a"jurönit", foreigner, kwerkwer, a mbororo. Invite him to your jienge luak. I know you have no home. Even monkeys have trees they call homes. Ahhahha.

                • 4 December 2019 23:02, by jubaone

                  Cuz the jienges themselves can’t police their own luakjiengs, the UN forces must intervene. The country is being run by the UN: providing security, food, medicine, emergency, money while the foolish majority are preoccupied with killing themselves, raping defenceless women, looting state resources. What can these jienge kaffirs really do? Something can’t come from nothing. Losers.

              • 4 December 2019 21:47, by jubaone

                These jienge savages can kill themselves in thousands and won affect us Equatorians, after all their lives don’t matter. They add no intellectual, moral nor economic values. The jienges can’t lead themselves and how can they claim when they can’t understand? Just kuffar dummies possessed by demons.

                • 4 December 2019 21:55, by jubaone

                  The naked Jienge kaffirs have stooped and shown us their shitholes. It’s up to us Equatorians to decide, either to enjoy watching their filthy shitholes or, just thrush into their shitholes some hot pepper. We have tolerated this nonsense for too long. Nothing will stop us from getting our own Republic of Equatoria. Yes, we can. We don’t need lazy idiots to achieve this goal.

                  • 4 December 2019 22:03, by jubaone

                    As long as no peace with Riek works, more Equatorian IOs will get frustrated and join and boost NAS. NAS is doing wonderful job of cleansing our holy lands from jienge filth. What we should do is, cut all contacts with jienges and see them as "jellaba hirelings", after all, 40-45% of all jienges have jellaba genealogy and blood relations. Jienge, jellaba, jabakana bes.

                      Correct!The only reason why these Dinka savages behave the way they do towards other South Sudanese is b’cos they don’t belong to Southern part of this country.These vagrants are like locusts,today here tomorrow some place else in search of readymades.They came from the North full of big appetite for food,chaos and lawlessness.NAS and others must stay focused and meticulously work out...

                        - long term strategies of how to uproot these worthless creatures out of Equatoria.Dinka hate Equatorians,these are facts and so must we also hate them.There’s this lazy and useless Ambassador to Italy Ajing Adiang Marik who harasses and terrorizes female Equatorian staffs at South Sudanese Embassy in Italy.He also was reported to have deliberately embezzled employees salaries for years..

                          ..Dinka armed youths and gov’t sponsored militias also terrorize aid workers from Equatoria in their territories in South Sudan.All these ill practices against Equatorians must ring the bell and push us tackle this Dinka epidemic once and for all.We must do the same thing to them and defend ourselves and communities by all means necessary,period!

            Yes I agree with you, because he do apprehend and forgive the killers, and majority of those killers do hail from your tribe. It is ridiculous to talk of everyone knows.
