March 20, 2020 (JUBA) - The National Salvation Front (NAS) has accused the South Sudanese army of massing troops near its positions in Central Equatoria State and called on the Vatican religious of Sant’Egidio to address these violations.

In a statement released on Friday, NAS denounced two "new planned SSPDF military offensive" on 19 and 20 March.

NAS Spokesman Suba Samuel Manase said that elements belonging to South Sudan’s Popular Defence Forces (SSPDF) supported by three Land cruiser vehicles, a Russian Ural lorry, and an armoured personnel carrier deliberately advanced towards NAS positions in Loka and Mukaya areas.

"The forces still maintain a hostile presence in these locations poised for confrontation," he stressed.

"This morning of 20th March 2020, a full battalion of the SSPDF arrived from Juba reinforcing the bases in Lainya, Loka and Mukaya," he further said.

On 20 January 2020, NAS recommitted itself to the cessation of hostilities of 21 December 2017, in a deal brokered by the Sant’Egidio community.

"These hostile and unprovoked military activities are serious violations of CoHA. NAS therefore, calls upon the Community of Sant’Egidio and the members of the International Community to address these on-going violations".

The armed group further said they are closely monitoring the situation and will fight back in self-defence if attacked.

      NAS will kick your butts out from their ancestors lands very soon. Those guys are not joking when it comes to self defense...you can’t call someone else lands as it’s yours, it will never work in South Sudan. Lands grabbing is violention of human rights internationally

        People who are mentally retarded are below us. We will be on top of them forever. In South Sudan, we have two huge armies:
        1- SSPDF
        2- National Security

        Both armies are armed to their teeth with national security reports to president only, this means a woman who loves to sleep with many men cannot have control of our national security. She will find a young soon to sleep with.

          You were armed to teeth in 2013 plus private trained army, but all were to soft like a piece of cake to civilian white army. The wasted money trained army for 22 years plus private new armed youth were scattered in the bushes and disert for less than 3 weeks. Until the head of the country handover the sovereign to another country to recuse him from the civilians.. Very embarrassing and shames to t

            We are in 10 states holding everything very tightly. All head of military divisions are ours. Money in the country is under our president control. Free nyantit will be there, but mentally retarded people will get that through us, full control of the country

                        If these jienge bastards misbehave and start shooting,NAS will defend itself with full force!The breech or violation of The Rome Declaration will solely be resting on Kiir’s savage mentality/shoulder/tribal forces.These jienge rats will smell smoke and get roasted!

                          These jienge have never defeated anyone and they have no records of having routed NAS. Over 80% of all nyors have been put out of action or quit the army after fugitive Malong was kicked out. Their actions are limited to raping killing and terrorizing defenceless women. They heavily rely on allies to fight. Otherwise most jienges are busy looting state resources and running away.

                        Tell monkeys of NAS to come back to Juba. We have one ministry still open, Ministry of Environment. It will be nice to give that ministry to a Bari man to teach his people how to clean Juba. Before 32 states were dissolved, Bari were speaking openly that they do not want Mundari to be brought back to their state, they don’t want Mundari, shit.

                              Jienges have nowhere to go. Back in their luaks, no food, no homes, no civilized living and no bragging except revenge killings, cattle rsutling, anarchy, chaos and disorder. Dont mind them with 3-piece suits. They are just as good as naked. We Equatorians have raised and made them human, otherwise they would be like walking bush gorillas.

Anyway, you have everything but no homes or houses of your own. That is being a parasite, blood sucker. Hallelujah, God is great. The jienge devil is dying.

                  NAS is never scared of jienges cuz they simply go for unarmed civilians. NAS is not IO. They have survived all these times. Jienge cowards are hoping for IO help cuz they till now failed to dislodge NAS. Ask your fellow jienges in security.

        You seem to know nothing at all. First of all, Thomas Cirillo was agent call insider in Juba. He came out from Juba on June 1992 when the SPLA were attacked Juba. His late brother Peter Carrillo was also an insider agent in Khartoum government. The most of Equatoria regions were captured by Dinkas Sons. Nuers people were break away in 1991.

      • 21 March 08:25, by Khent


        Which must mean that you agree that the Nuer should return Longechuk County to the Burun after they annexed it in the 80s, aye? Longechuk is hundreds of times bigger than the land stolen by the Dinka in Equatoria? When will you condemn your Nuer people for brutalizing the Anyuak?

        • 21 March 08:27, by Khent

          The Nuer killed Chol Odio — the Anyuak Paramount Chief in 2013 due to his vocal opposition to Nuer attempts at land-theft. Are you really ignorant of the fact that the Mor Lou continue to encroach upon the lands of the Anuak? The Mor Lou routinely intimidate and kill the Anyuak in Akobo in order to displace them from their ancestral lands.

          • 21 March 08:30, by Khent

            The Shilluk land of Nyijwad is also not your land. You now call Nyijwad ’new Fangak’- and you stole this land from the Shilluk after Othown Dak allowed you to take refuge in their land when floods ravaged old Fangak. Hypocrites!

            • 21 March 08:33, by Khent

              The people who have stolen the lands of the Anyuak, Burun and Shilluk are the same people that now pretend to be righteous by condemning the Dinka for stealing plots of land in Equatoria, while entire Nuer sub-sections take entire payams and counties (the size of countries like Lebanon) from smaller tribes. You people are hilarious.

              • 21 March 09:33, by South South


                Thank you for stating out the facts about the Nuer behaviors in Upper Nile. We know all these things. These small tribes in upper Nile have been paying heavy prices from Nuer bad behaviors. In Juba until 2013, we have seen Nuer killing innocent Bari and grabbed their lands.ALMIGHTY NUER NEVER BEEN DEFEATED have been defeated now and they need to tuck their tails and shut up, no more games.

                      Jienge kaffir, that was metaphorical, symbolic to illustrate my point. Now for jienge dummy like you, I’d say remove the log from your eye b4 you remove the speck from someone’s eye, jienge. Cuz you’re a stupid jienge Kaffir, you even don’t know the biblical analogy. Just rot in your jienge idiocy and shut up 👆.

      • 21 March 09:22, by jubaone

        Jienges are criminals, bandits, killers, liars and represent everything that is evil and satanic. That is why their lands will ever remain like animal parks. Wherever the jienge gets, he sows chaos and disorder cuz he himself is chaos. These jienge forces only understand war. You either defeat them or they you. There’s NO middle way. Kill them NAS and let their bodies rot.

  • 21 March 05:13, by Mayendit

    For Equatorians brothers and sisters who thinks Dinkas people will leave all towns, I think they have to thinks again. We have had lost half of million people during the 21st of the SPLA and SPLM and thousand others in current rebellious wars general speaking, they have pays our Sons which were killed in action in all Equatoria regions otherwise, such a racial profiling must be avoid in South Suda

    • 21 March 09:34, by jubaone

      That is jienge bullshit. You had full mouth on 32 states but all melted down within days. Nobody is scared of jienges. Only when Juba and Equatoria really burns, will jienge misfits get away. Equatoria accommodated these misfits, fed them and clothed them and now are complacent and comfortable. Look at their areas, nothing but filth and insanity. Be thankful jienge, we help you.

  • 21 March 05:21, by Mayendit

    If the Equatorians people insisted that, they don’t wants Dinkas people perhaps, they have to paying those million people who have had lost their dearly lives in the SPLA and SPLM period. By the way, Games you are not belong to the Equatoria regions so why not talking about Upper Nile region and which you have mess up for your rebellious. Ashamed on you Mr.Games.

    • 21 March 09:47, by Khent


      No, we should leave Equatoria and stay firmly in our lands in Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile. The Capital should be moved to Ramciel and the ’government’ should force the Dinka out of Equatoria. We have more than enough land and we just need to develop our lands and communities. The Dinka should stop stealing land in Equatoria and Upper Nile.

      Paying for what? Did you jienges go to the bush only to come and crowd yourselves in Equatoria? So you now understand, without Equatoria, you are nothing. It confirms that jienges formed the SPLA not to liberate SS, but out of bitterness of kokora. They have no development agenda.
