May 6, 2020 -JUBA) - The National Salvation Front (NAS) fighters killed four government troops who attacked their position southwest of Juba on Tuesday, according to the group spokesperson on Wednesday.

Suba Samuel Manase NAS Spokesman accused the South Sudan People’s Defence Force (SSPDF) and the Sudan People’ s Liberation Army in Opposition (SPLA IO) of launching fresh attacks on their position in Central Equatoria State.

"On 5th May 2020, the SSPDF force at Katigiri; Wonduruba Payam, attacked a NAS position at around 8:00 am in the morning," said Manase in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

"NAS forces fought back in self-defence and dispersed the attacking enemy force which lost four (4) soldiers," he added without elaborating about the human causalities from their side.

The rebel official said the SSPDF troops together with the SPLA-IO fighters assaulted NAS advance base in the out-skirt of Loka on Wednesday morning.

"This (joint) force is still fighting with the intention to reach other NAS bases in the area," he said.

The government and the SSOMA factions including NAS recommitted themselves to the cessation of hostilities of 21 December 2017.

The Sant’Egidio mediators who brokered the deal recently condemned the recent government attack on the rebel positions and civilians in Yei area and called to abide by the truce.

NAS spokesman denounced the attack and accused the government of seeking to use the global lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic to capture NAS positions and displace civilians who are accused of supporting the rebel group.

      The Rhino,

      Your dirty Mundari keep lying to your teeth everyday. This is a very good reason Egyptian enrolled in 2 years program with very stupid students like you. NAS has no forces in South Sudan to fight. Thomas Cirillo is hiding in Ethiopia and tiny of his supporters are in refugee camps in Uganda, tally up and you will see there is no one in South Sudan for shit NAS.

        Dirty jienge kaffir! Relax why groan like a gorilla on heat? This wasn’t NAS, these were Arrow Boys hunting for some monkeys 🐵 as bush meat. I guess, they mistook these dirty jienges for antelopes! Just hide your cowardly jienge butt in Uganda or Kenya and relax. After all, jienge lives don’t matter like that of cockroaches.

          Kurkoo!!!!, you have a thief called Cirillo hiding in Ethiopia. You have a few monkeys in refugee camps in Uganda, you have a few rats hiding in USA and you have a few monkeys in Canada, tally up, they are tiny minorities. Countries are ruled by majorities, Kurkoo!!!!

            You did not suckle enough milk, apparently the little monkeys drained everything. Just the foolish majorities like gorillas. Big heads small brains and just good enough for eating, sleeping, shitting and procreation. Go look for food, aryan jienge.

              Kurkoo!!!!, I am a master of the masters. We have changed South Sudan for good, history teaches us that when change arrives, the best way to deal with it is not to resist, but to adapt. You can bark, shit, cry and all of that, but you will come back and bow down to see me. Kurkoo!!!!

      The Rhino,

      Your incitement on this in social media will make your vulnerable equatorian people to defecate so much.

      Do you think if IO and Juba government have common attack to NAS?

      Big lie from your crook reporter.

        Makuei once alluded, the nyagat/Nuer is like an undisciplined dog, you hit it and it runs away howling but once hungry it comes back to its master and can enjoy even a meatless bone. Now these nyagats have been given power, they forget where they came from. No surprise, they have "chicken 🍗 brains". They were slaughtered like goats and now they serve the the same butcher.

    • 7 May 2020 10:14, by jubaone

      Great! What must be done must be done. NAS is just doing its job. The cowardly jienge are now using the IO nyagats "dogs of war" for free nyamnyam and hotel accommodation. This was expected, our insider sources know when, how big and how nyagat dogs of war will come in. The cowardly jienge simply gives orders.

      • 7 May 2020 13:20, by Midit Mitot


        take it from me if Nuer and Dinka have united, nobody can talk in this country and only Nuer will free others South Sudanese from Dinka marginalization.

        NAS as equatorian fighters alone can not pence anything.

        • 7 May 2020 14:24, by jubaone

          Midit Mitot,
          You jienges and nyagats first unite then come. Hopefully you can get your fellow nyagats from the PoCs in Juba to help you fight. Be courageous, come and face NAS.

          • 7 May 2020 15:23, by Midit Mitot


            Be smart my brother, what I know is, those Equatorian who have fought much against Juba regime (Dinka Kindom)with us as IO can not write any how like you.

            Those are the real men at the front-line, but those who are preaching war while in hiding place like JUBA-ONE, and THE RHINO can write anythings they can but not enough.

      • 7 May 2020 21:54, by The Rhino


        Great,great,great,thank you!See,this case in South Sudan with rapists Dinka people and worthless Nuer food lovers will eventually come to an end very soon than expected.Both are worthless and greedy!If I were to be an investor,I wouldn’t drop a precious dollar on either of them,NEVER!Shit,these two tribes so far have been globally proven as prime waste of Human Resources,Money & Time....

        • 7 May 2020 22:05, by South South

          The Rhino,

          Shit, we are constructing high from Juba to Wau. Chinese are doing it and they get oil from us. Let NAS try to stop it. Kurkoo!!!!!!!

        • 7 May 2020 22:08, by The Rhino


          ..so,to hell with them!All I can say is,all Equatorians MUST decamp to NAS,both from IG or IO.These fighters will thank The Rhino tomorrow,solid!Its really simple logic here,Dinka and Nuer people came to us in Equatoria,we didn’t go to their areas and rape,dislodge or murder people their,NO!So,its every duty of an Equatorian to protect himself,his family,property or community to teeth...

          • 7 May 2020 22:10, by The Rhino


            ..with GUNs!Fuck the Dinka,after all they are cowards.This is true!

            • 7 May 2020 22:15, by The Rhino

              South South,

              • 7 May 2020 22:26, by The Rhino

                South South,

                Shit,your Chinese Dinka relatives first wanted to construct the Juba-Bor road quick as possible,but they miserably failed.What happened to that one?Now you Dinka savages want to try Juba-Wau road?Bullshit!Tell that to your ape breastfeeding women in Abyei,they’ll never believe your shit,fuck off MTN!
