June 5, 2020 (JUBA,) — South Sudan’s foreign ministry denied reports claiming that Juba had given green light for Egypt to establish a military base near the Ethiopian border.

"The ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation hereby denies in the strongest terms possible, the information which has been circulated in the social media that the government of South Sudan has agreed to Egyptian request to build a military base in Pagak," reads a statement issued on Wednesday.

Relations between Egypt and Ethiopia are strained by the disagreement over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) particularly the filling of its reservoir.

"There is nothing of that kind, no agreement has been reached whatsoever to allocate a piece of land for Egyptian military base in the territory of the Republic of South Sudan," said the South Sudanese government distancing itself from any suspicion.

Juba further said the “spurious allegation” was forged and disseminated by the enemies of peace who seek to create tensions for the South Sudanese government with the neighbouring countries.

Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan are expected to resume technical meetings to finalize talks on the safety of the dam, environmental issues, data exchange facilitation and the resolutions of disputes.

    Even though the former PM has been supporting Riek Machar and his rebellion against South Sudan nation thus, we will not accept to fueling the issue of Ethiopian Dam construction and the Egyptian interests of water Nile. These countries are our best friends and we will not allow a Military base in South Sudan. The Ethiopian government should not listen to those created rumours about Egyptian base

    • 5 June 21:04, by Langbaar

      Confrontation is here Mr. Mayendit. Here in my home state of Jonglei, we would do our best to bomb these Abeshas (prostitutes out of our Gambella region), Kenya, Djibouti into Red Sea and be done with with them, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. Do you fools know that your damned Abesh (so-called ethiopia) is a landlocked country?>>>>

        • 6 June 08:28, by Langbaar

          Mayendit dare you equal me to that ugly and flunkey called Mabior Nyandeng? First of all, Mabior Garang, her mother and others don’t call themselves Bor people, but "Twic East". Again Mr. Mayendit just because you always read here on SUDAN TRIBUNE that Bor people are in Nimule from online trolls like jubaone, the Rhino or Eastern. How many Bor Dinkas/Jenges are there in Numule chap?>>>

          • 6 June 08:37, by Langbaar

            Mr. Mayendit, Murles chasing the Bor Dinkas/Jiengs to Nimule? Really? Probably, the so-called ’Twic East cowards’ Why Nimule of all towns and not Juba. Listen hard piece of trash, I am a Bor South Dinka/Jieng. And I know how to bomb these vermins our of our country and over our people back once and for all.>>>

            • 6 June 08:45, by Langbaar

              Mr. Mayendit, aren’t you bunch of low lives the ones who often called yourself *so-called israel (so-called evil juus) in Africa?* Or that you are *Abeshas (so-called ethiopians)*?! There you have it. Watch out Mr. Maydendit piece trash.>>>>>

              • 6 June 09:00, by Langbaar

                Are these ugly low lives in this picture the ones you allegedly chasing the Bor Dinkas/Jiengs out of Jonglei? That cannot happen under the sun. When Bor South youths invaded ’Pi-bor in 2017’, the loads of NGOs screamed at the top of their evil lungs that Bor Dinkas/Jiengs are using the "military to kill the Murles simply because they are Murles".>>>

                • 6 June 09:07, by Langbaar

                  with all those evidences I hard given you above, where do you get the Bor Dinkas/Jiengs living in Nimule? By the way piece of trash, how of fools are living in Juba? You low life will never answer me because you just a piece of trash who doesn’t know anything, but thought, making a few comments on SUDAN TRIBUNE would make him anything, really?>>>

                    Did you not recently complain that Pibor was taken away from your Bor people by the Murle? So, if you were forced to lose such a large piece of territory, why should people be surprised that your people fled to Nimule and live there as belligerent, arrogant squatters? The people of Mading Bor are the ones that created terms like "foolish majority" for Bahr el Ghazal...

                    • 6 June 15:39, by Khent

                      ..And it was your people that tricked the people of Aliap out of their cattle with playing cards. Criminal elements within your community sold children to the Murle. And since when has anyone ever feared Mading Bor for you to incessantly issue laughable threats agaist Twic-east, Nuer and Murle? You also make threats against the United States, Britain, Israel and Ethiopia. Get professional help.

                    • 6 June 17:32, by Langbaar

                      Khent,
                      I had never ever complained about the Murles taking over over our Pibor loser. what I said was that our people left Pibor area in 1920th to "main Nile Course since our cattle didn’t get enough water in Pibor and other seasonal Nile Rivers". The Murles just came in from today’s South Abesh (so-called ethiopia) and occupied our Pibor, Mac Abol>>>

                      • 6 June 17:42, by Langbaar

                        "And it was your people that tricked the people of Aliap out of their cattle with playing cards"
                        Mr. Do you really mind you loser write? We don’t play *intrigue game of card----it is called gamble in other words*. And gambling is frown upon here in Dinka/Jieng community.>>>>

                        • 6 June 17:52, by Langbaar

                          There will be *no mighty US, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), Kenya and evil juus (so-called israel), I promise you Mr. Khent piece of trash 100%, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM chap.>>>>

                          • 6 June 18:00, by Langbaar

                            Didn’t I tell you that the murles have never ever took a single cattle from ’from tong amuou meth, Anyidi (Palek), Paluer, Dachuek (a so-called Twic East), tong (war), Awuwii (Pakeer), another Twic East, and I failed to tell you fool, tong (war) Jele, next door to you so-called ’Twic East’>>>>

                            • 6 June 18:12, by Langbaar

                              In your so-called ’Twic East Dinkas/Jiengs’, the Murles used to take their cattle, and notably Dr. John Garang and some of your so-called so-called ’Twic East’ fool. Here in Bor South. We are conquering men piece of trash. We are the Ancient Egyptians fool. Bor South was the one which keep your Dr. John Garang clothes on fool. We here are fool.>>>

          Mayendit

          Mabior Garang is a mindless, myopic traitor; he and his mother should NEVER have moved against Salva Kiir with that traitor Riek Machar; these people have weakened the people of Twic-east in every way and we now deserve to be barred from the political environment for decades to come. It’s a good thing, because a lot of my people were living vicariously through Dr. John Garang de Mabior

          • 6 June 18:46, by Mayendit

            Mr. Khent
            I agree completely about Mabior Garang’s attitude. Him and his mother Nyandeng have betrayed the whole Twic East communities. The South Sudanese people are looking for answers specifically, the way Mabior Garang act like he is not a Son of late Chairman Dr.John Garang. He is trying to destroy chances of others Twic politicians who might be seeking leadership in South Sudan.

            • 7 June 14:51, by Khent

              Mayendit

              Mabior Garang and his mother are operating under the delusion that the SPLM/A is their birthright; their political maneuvers have been entirely selfish and this is why they see no problems working with a traitor that joined Khartoum and massacred their people. The people of Twic-East have had their turn and should now just be in supporting roles.

  • 6 June 08:18, by Games

    South Sudan is a very funny country in which you can deny the facts today and the next days the facts will reveal itself. Salva Kiir’s administration has to be very careful at this time around. Ethiopia will not entertain these behaviors the Juba are displaying. Juba must stay neutral like Khartoum and the rests of the surrounding Nile River

  • 6 June 08:26, by Games

    You these thugs above should read Egypt news in Arabic, before trying to defend your rotten regime. It is also in Ethiopia news if you can read Amharic.

      Games/mentally Retarded.

      You fool can’t understand anything. Read here from Ethiopia News Agency, ENA: https://www.ena.et/en/?p=14985

      • 6 June 15:26, by Games

        South Shit (Slaves)
        The whole agreement to allow Egypt army into South Sudan soils were initially signed in 2018, but the deals were uphold by the South Sudan government, because they want the finals agreement to be finalized after the formation of the nation unity.

  • 6 June 15:32, by Games

    Cont... Now you are talking Shit on the issue that you don’t even have clues of when and where is it started.
    On that your pathetic untrue evidence, why you Dinka always proposes something that you regret on it the next day?

  • 8 June 10:48, by Angelo Achuil

    I wonder how much were we bothered by the construction of "Aswan High Dam"in 1960s. If it benefited the Egyptians and the rest along the Nile also need similar benefits from the Nile, is that wrong, says who? Look at how Egypt treat S. Sudanese in Cairo and without Ethiopia, there won’t be SPLA. It’s obvious the target isn’t Ethiopia only but the rest of us (S. Sudan, Uganda and Sudan) doing thing

  • 8 June 10:55, by Angelo Achuil

    livelihoods project alone the Nile. We know that if Ethiopian cannot be allowed to use the rivers in her own territory like did Egyptian, then the same logic will be used against us later. We cannot afford to be neutral. We stand together with Ethiopian or we will each fall separately. Each nation has its rights within its borders. Act 17:26

    "The God who made the world and all things in it, this One being Lord of Heaven and of earth, does not dwell in handmade temples, nor is served by hands of men, as having need of anything. For He is giving life and breath and all things to all. 
    And He made every nation of men of one blood, to live on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries" Act 17:24-26 ?
