NAS denies abduction of SPLA-IO officers in South Sudan’s C. Equatoria


Lam Paul Gabriel SPLA-IO Spokesperson (2R) pose with some participant at the end of a meeting at the SSPDF headquarters in Yei on 8 November 2018 (Photo SPLA-IO)May 14, 2020 (JUBA) - The National Salvation Front (NAS) denied being involved in an attack on three SPLA-IO senior officers in Kajo Kaji of Central Equatoria State and claimed that they had been arrested by their own group.

On Thursday, SPLA IO Deputy Military Spokesperson, Col. Lam Paul Gabriel, accused NAS fighters of ambushing a vehicle transporting eight SPLA-IO officials and abducted them at Kansuk in Kajo Keji County on 10 May.

According to Gabriel, the three seniors officers are Brig. Gen. Sammy Logeleng, Brig. Gen. Clement Samuel and Col. Wokil Peter.

In a swift response to these accusations, NAS Spokesman Suba Samuel Manase dismissed the "false allegations" adding it was a cover-up for internal divisions and "power rivalry" within the SPLA-IO

"These officers were arrested by Gen Moses Lukujo on 5th April 2020 under the instruction of Gen Mabieh after protesting the promotion of Gen Moses Lukujo into the rank of Maj. Gen and his subsequent appointment as Division Commander despite being junior to these two Brigadiers," said Manase.

NAS recently clashed with the government and SPLA-IO forces in Central and Western Equatoria.

Despite, several statements NAS issued on this respect, the ceasefire monitoring body CTSAMVM did not release a statement on these alleged attacks.

NAS and its allies in the SSOMA recommitted themselves to the cessation of hostilities agreement of 21 December 2017.

The holdout alliance is expected to resume peace talks with the government mediated by the Sant’Edigio community but not date has been determined due to the coronavirus crisis.

    SPLA IO need to wipeout this terrorist organization called NAS being used & supplied by Yori M7 otherwise innocent Pojulu & Kuku will keep suffering under visionless leader Thomas Cirilo while he’s protecting his coward Bari tribe from all these mess he’s created

    • 15 May 2020 08:07, by Nueri Dial

      NAS did not think wisely, They suppose to ally with IO from day 1 in order to fight Kiir (Dinka). Their present in Equatoria land will not help. IO was in Nuer land because 80 % were white army.

      • 15 May 2020 08:24, by jubaone

        Nuri Diar,
        NAS doesn’t need nyagat or backstabbers in their ranks. What will soon happen is most Equatorian IOs will decamp or desert this IO. White Army is only effective in Muerland and cant survive in Equatoria. Just starve them and they’ll crawl to their jienge masters and feeders like hungry dogs.

        • 15 May 2020 08:48, by Nueri Dial

          You needs to tell the truth. You can not fight both Dinka and Nuer. The reality is that NAS has no forces in those areas. Remember how white army storm Bor, Bentiu and Malakal in 2013/14. I was hoping NAS to announce themselves officially like what white army did. Unfortunately they were talking of capturing villages. Nuer is your Messiah

          • 15 May 2020 09:25, by jubaone

            Nueri Dial,
            Perhaps you should save your caged kin in Juba PoC first b4 being a messiah to Equatorians. You have 2 VPs, several ministers and generals and where is your development? The same people running to Equatoria like terrified chicken. No. Neither jienges nor nyagats have any value to us. Just go home and kill yourselves like savages.

            • 15 May 2020 10:23, by Nueri Dial

              You are among low informed individual. 2 Vice president and many ministers, Are you Jealous or what?. How many Equatoria in IG? Don’t push Nuer to fight you! you are small in their eyes. If you cry because of Displaced Dinka/Jaang by Mighty Nuer. Just wait and watch for 2 bulls fighting. 10 state is already back, institutional reform is underway. Bilpam reform is done and SSDF a gone case

              • 15 May 2020 12:36, by jubaone

                Nuri Dial,
                That’s junk and nyagat trash. We dont need nyagat aid. We rather do it alone that have a bunch of chaotic fools among us. Organize yourselves first.

                • 15 May 2020 13:37, by Nueri Dial

                  NAS was in the bush for two yrs now and they are strangling for existence. Can you mention some main town you captured so far? barking on net will never give you victory

          • 15 May 2020 09:31, by jubaone

            Nueri Dial,
            What will happen soon is, all Equatorian IOs will defect and abandon IO en masse, cuz IO has completely lost vision. They have become a bunch of power hungry idiots. Give them free nyamnyam and accommodation, they will do anything. Now the very nyagats are sowing chaos in Equatoria. Wait for updates.

            • 15 May 2020 12:47, by james john luka

              Is Frank Matata a Nuerawi? stupid Idiot!

              • 15 May 2020 13:35, by jubaone

                James John Luka,
                Could be a "bastardized nyagat". Afterall many Equatorian "nyagat whores" birthed a lot of low IQ nyagat bastards during and after the war most of who are mentally retarded and do stupid stuff. Matata could be one of them, just like Lam Paul Gabriel. We know their biographies.

                • 15 May 2020 15:12, by james john luka

                  You must be stupid to rattle like that without knowing that when people took up arms for a blur reason like that of IO and NAS death will rule them. Today is IO tomorrow may be NAS who knows? unless you step back from that search for self greatness through violent mean, you will continue to hear death of such sort.

          Thank you very much for your intelligent input.The thing is,Dinka and Nuer people in camps must ask themselves a simple question,why are their own leaders housing them in these so called PoC sites like chickens or ready for export cattle all these years?One thing is firm,we don’t want these PoC sites in Equatoria,anymore!Dinka and Nuer have their peace,let them move their people out!

          • 15 May 2020 19:24, by South South

            The Rhino,

            Monkey, there are no Dinka in PoC. Dinka are in Juba, Yei, Wau, Malakal, Bor, Aweil, Tonj, Rumbek, Bentu, Renk and all areas of South Sudan. You Should focus on your uncles in refugee camps in Uganda. Why are your uncles in refugee camps?

            • 15 May 2020 22:28, by The Rhino

              South South,

              A typical vagrant is all over the place.Shit,Dinka hometown is Bahr El Gazal damn it.What do you fucking Dinka people really want in Equatoria?Shit,we will look into it that all Dinka savages/animals are transported back to their place of origin.Thats your home you fucking MTN loose junk!What now?

          • 15 May 2020 21:06, by jubaone

            I held our position while your were busy with some assignments. The two of us (Eastern currently on leave) can battle it out with these jienge-nyagat miscreants. It’s not numbers but intellect. As long as they come to us, get fed on free nyamnyam, get clothes and houses, we are in control. Dont mind savages wearing suits. You could dress monkeys with suits as well.

            • 15 May 2020 21:22, by The Rhino


              Close associates tell that,the appointment of Juma Johnson Okot known as J.J.Okot by illiterate Kiir in replacing Jok Riak,his former boss in their jungle military chain of command was nothing else but a scheduled maneuvering by Kiir himself and Jieng Council of Elders(JCE) to approach and deal with counter insurgencies in Equatoria and Equatorians themselves.Simple,Dinka and Nuer hate..

              • 15 May 2020 21:36, by The Rhino


                ..to see Equatorians get or associate together.It was true before and true to this very day!We must remember that,this very J.J.shit Okot together with the then Dinka murderer Paul Malong Awan,were the ones who terrorized Okot’s own Acholli and neighboring innocent Ma’di people in Eastern Equatoria with grave impunity.Shit,the presence of especially Dinka Bor savages today in Ma’diland..

                • 15 May 2020 21:51, by The Rhino


                  ..was enormously facilitated by none but this same disgusting fucking J.J.Okot,now appointed as military chief of staff.Insiders know that he is none but a puppet,just as those uninformed foolish Equatorian fighters,fighting for Dinka IG or Nuer IO politicians scrambling in Equatoria,respectively.Its a dirty game,Equatorians MUST abandon this notion of "babysitting"Dinka or Nuer.........

                  • 15 May 2020 22:03, by The Rhino


                    ..savages in their compounds.Fuck them!Fact is,Dinka and Nuer people are greedily scrambling for money and morning mists.I swear to GOD almighty,NO savage will ever displace us KARO people/Equatorians from our own hard earned ancestral territories in Equatoria.Savages will come and go.The blowback is anyhow imminent.Juba is KARO’s Jerusalem.So it was, it is,and for ever shall it shine...

                    • 15 May 2020 22:15, by The Rhino


                      ..eternal!!!Therefore,jurön whose homes were lost, brings trouble, harm or death to our people, in our own lands, must/will undoubtedly expect same savagery and deaths in their own doorsteps, today,tomorrow or their next generations to come.Dinka and Nuer savages have constantly poked the peaceful beast.Henceforth,they must taste the grilling heat and pay for their deeds, full stop!!!

    • 15 May 2020 08:19, by jubaone

      Just shut up, aryan jienge or nyagat. Get your dirty shithole together and go fight NAS instead of yelling from far like a street dog.

      Trouble,Nuer Dial & james john luka,

      All you three cockroaches are nothing, but delusional foolish Dinka or Nuer worthless tribal bastards who like pigs mingle in their own shit and expect others/Equatorians/civilized world to entertain your bullshit.NO,Its a new day!There are GUNs all over the place, both you tribal savages will kiss death like all other greedy foolish occupiers before in.......

      • 15 May 2020 17:27, by The Rhino

        Trouble,Nuer Dial & james john luka,

        ..Equatoria,who tried to settle in our ancestral territories with brutality.You bastards must crystal clear understand that today the mechanics of warfare is not about numbers or boots of infantries on the the ground, but profound professionalism,determinations and drive to fight, protect and defend oneself.Hardliners in Equatoria will NEVER tolerate your.....

        • 15 May 2020 17:38, by The Rhino

          Trouble,Nuer Dial & james john luka,

          ...primitive nonsense anymore.Trust me,even GOD himself will be insulted,if Equatorians/especially the KARO people in one way or the other fail to defend themselves or communities with equal opposite force!The logic is simple,Equatorians/KARO people never ventured to Dinka nor Nuer territories to rape,kill vulnerable people,grab lands,destroy nor practice.....

          • 15 May 2020 17:50, by The Rhino

            Trouble,Nuer Dial & james john luka,

            ...evil activities at will, never!But you Dinka and Nuer people mistook our brotherhood and hospitality in accommodating you as sign of weakness and frail.This is wrong, very wrong!NO,NO,NO,a normal warrior would pick an axe an kill the enemy.From now on, death unto you.Both you fucking tribal savages will reap what you have sown.All savages OUT,full stop!

  • 15 May 2020 09:58, by Trouble

    Let all equatoria abandon weak Nas movement & join government to protect them or else SPLA IO will do what jalaba did in past the youth of equatoria has no capacity & endurance to fight wars they always get frustrated & run to Uganda that’s why most equatoria r fake they’re not real S Sudanese they’ll always have another home somewhere to run to for safety

    • 15 May 2020 16:47, by jubaone

      You should be lucky that Dr Riek still lives on. He’s perhaps the only learned Nuer among the many nyagat who has some sanity. IO without him is just like a pack of vision less savages without any plans. This explains why you shift alliances and allegiances like swinging bull piss on the run. Equatorian IOs should just get to NAS and fight. If they lose then honorably but not as traitors

  • 15 May 2020 10:05, by Trouble

    Like I said before this war in S Sudan only for 2 elephants Dinka & Nuer, dogs cats & hyenas will try to involve but will be overwhelmed l

    • 15 May 2020 15:08, by jubaone

      Your in serious trouble. The elephant 🐘 should save the caged "chimps" in PoC in Juba b4 trying to save the "cats".

  • 15 May 2020 12:28, by james john luka

    This is the hard reality South Sudanese will come to term with.
    It is a hard to drink solution. That what happen when people rebelled just for ranks and power,they end up murdering themselves.
