SSHURSA urges international community to disallow President Museveni destroying South Sudan


Sudanese people want an answer and Museveni with IGAD must beging talking.

The earlier Museveni begins talking the better. IGADs neutrality in South Sudan insurgencies with an aim to defeat the cause of the struggle for South Sudan independency is also highly questioned. Which is why the world leaders must come in urgently to save the people of South Sudan from engineered crimes, violation and abuse of human Rights that emanates from a public organization which in the first place, is expected to provide protection and security of life. It is for this reason why IGAD must explain its position that which, if it is acting on conflict of interest to short-change corruptly and endanger National public interest of the People of South Sudan, it must state why it must not be decreed because of International and national common public security and interest.

Today, beginning this year of 2014, South Sudan people want to see justice done and they have rights to demand for Justice and compensation for the same. So people who behave like Museveni harloting carelessly without order or decency and letting their cannons loose, all over Great Lakes Region of East Africa, must face justice and be is because, Justice delayed is justice denied.........

SSHURSA urges international community to disallow President Museveni destroying South Sudan

The South Sudan Human Rights society for Advocacy (SSHURSA) calls upon the sincere members of the international Community and the African Union to disallow Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has already prepared to destroy South Sudan.
Considering President Museveni as one of the key central figures in IGAD-Peace led mediation and reconciliation over South Sudan’s recent crisis, is a terrible miscalculation by the regional body, the IGAD and unforgivable betrayal of the people of South Sudan by the international Community. The United States and British Governments as well as other nations should rise up to prevent more bloodbaths fueled by Mr. Museveni in South Sudan.
President Museveni is known by many South Sudanese citizens as partial, one sided self-proclaimed mediator and great mouth in meddling in South Sudan’s internal politics and security matters. For the last one year, he had been accused by sections of citizens in South Sudan and Uganda Parliament as a man who encourages crises in the South Sudan’s ruling SPLM party internal affairs as he has been allged of misadvising South Sudanese President Salva Kiir to listen to no one but believing in military might of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces to back up the latter’s own military guards against any internal political critics.
Against that background, Mr. Museveni cannot be one of the mediators on South Sudanese internal crises as he has always been known by sane South Sudanese and Ugandans of his partiality by taking unilateral military decision to deploy UPDF to fuel violence in South Sudan.
SSHURSA recommends the following:
  1. Calls on the International Community should strongly condemn and urge Mr. Museveni to stop meddling in South Sudanese internal affairs and restraint him from uttering statements that don’t serve purpose of peace and reconciliation in South Sudan but fueling violence
  1. Urges Mr. Museveni to stop moblizing IGAD countries to destroy South Sudan militarily under the claim of fighting SPLA forces against Juba under former South Sudan’s VP Riek Machar.
  1. Urges Uganda Parliament to pass a motion against illegal deployment of UPDF to call on Mr. Museveni to withdraw them from South Sudan before it is regarded as forces of occupation.
  1. SSHURSA urges sane members of South Sudan Legislative Assembly to pass a motion against the deployment of Uganda’s troops in South Sudanese soil which fuels internal conflict.
  1. SSHURSA calls upon IGAD to pursue peace and reconciliation by discussing root causes of crises with the ruling party SPLM rather than taking sides to further deep wounds among the South Sudanese people who are well educated in what has been going in South Sudan and how the current crises started.
  1. Calls upon international human rights groups and people of good will to expose and condemn Museveni’s acts of partiality that is fueling crises in South Sudan and throwing Great Lakes region into crises. Any sane human being must ask; if Museveni’s UPDF failed to defeat the rebellion of Nothern Uganda Joseph Konyi’s Lord Resistance Army for over 20 years, what miracle would he have to be successful in foreign land if not yearn for organized anarchy in South Sudan to divert the intention of Ugandans from their own internal governance crises?
  1. SSHURSA also calls upon international community to pressure on President Salva Kiir to release the 11 political detainees he alleged of staging a coup against him. The release will pave way for dialogue between him and his former deupty Riek Machar.
  1. SSHURSA calls upon UN to create buffer zone between the fighting forces to prevent more escalation of violence and pressure the two leaders for talks genuinely meant to bring sanity, peace and true reconciliation to South Sudan.
  1. Calls upon Uganda and South Sudanese civil society to stage demonstrations against iilegal deployment of UPDF in South Sudan.
  1. Finally, SSHURSA condemns the violence and the irresponsible SPLM dictatorship that has thrown the country into deep insecurities and also pays deep condolences to all families for the loss of dear ones in the senseless war.

South Sudan Genocide
Peter Gai Manyuom [File photo]
By Peter Gai Manyuon
December 25, 2013 (SSNA) -- My dear readers globally, what had happened in the Republic of South Sudan is beyond description for those who have survived from the Soldiers of Mayardit who have failed to lead the people of South Sudan in a good way.
First and foremost I would like to give many appreciation to the God Almighty for the Protection when I was captured in my house on Tuesday the 17th of December after they have killed my three relatives in my present and destroyed my passport and my all academics document.
Summary of the Violence in Juba
The fighting started on Sunday the 15th of December 2013 at around 10:00pm at night hour and on Monday the 16th, 17th and 18th of December was the time the soldiers loyal to Kiir began to killed the Nuer Tribe from Houses, they killed one thousand plus if not thousands from the Nuer tribe based on the recent research carry out by the Nuer people after some of civilians went to the United Nations (UN) compound in Juba.
The recent violence that was initiated by President Kiir and his Groups have really killed many civilians and the number of the dead in Juba is beyond a thousand and most of the those who were killed are from the Nuer Society; these people were targeted by the Dinkas from BharelGazal , they have killed up to their expectations.
The incident that started on Sunday the 15th of December 2013 , again, I personally thanks God almighty that I have survive from President Kiir’s Millitary Intelligent(MI) Genocide in Juba after they killed three of my relatives. I was arrested for the whole week in SPLA General Quarters (Gida), but, I really thanks God that, the Intelligent disagree among themselves on what to do about me and on whether to kill me or not. I was released on Wednesday this week but right now I am out of South Sudan territory.
All my documents were burned in my presence and they took a way my Cameras. More articles are on the way analyzing the South Sudan Genocide 2013 by President and his BharelGazal Loyalists.

IGAD’s Neutrality is in Question!

“Communique of the 23rd IGAD Extraordinary Summit of [East African] Heads of States”. Photo credit:
By J. Nguen Nyol
December 30, 2013 (SSNA) -- On 27th of December 2013, the heads of States from East Africa Community convened a meeting in Nairobi, Kenya to deliberate on South Sudan’s crisis. Six representatives or head presidents attended the summit. The initiative sparked hope among the hard pressed South Sudanese and friends of South Sudan around the globe because it was a logical call of action to address South Sudan crises.
However, the resultant was a major disappointment. It appeared that the regional leaders had nothing to offer but to support President Kiir with his bloody hand. Unquestionably, the East Africa leaders turned out to be President Kiir’s allies, aimed to crush dissent political voices in South Sudan. This is one critical mistake committed by so- called the IGAD heads states. The deliberation was ill-considered and indirect voice of the Government of South Sudan on “attempted coup” in form of Uganda and Kenya.
For example, the Summit “condemns all unconstitutional actions to challenge the constitutional order, democracy and the rule of law and in particularly condemns changing the democratic government of the Republic of South Sudan through use of force,” as if the alleged coup attempt was true.
Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni said “we gave Riek Machar four days to respond (to the ceasefire offer) and if he doesn’t {response} we shall have to go for him, all of us. That is what we agreed in Nairobi.” True mediators don’t give any ultimatum to any side they want to bring to the negotiation table. This is not an impartial position and I ‘m therefore afraid that Dr. Riek and his SPLA/M’s supporters would be forced conform to come to the negotiation table using such hostile language.
Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta has also taken side by stating that “let it be known that we in IGAD will not accept the unconstitutional overthrow of a duly and democratically elected government in South Sudan.” Mediation is not about intimidation but forming consensus on both sides. Any mediation which started on such a hostile environment like that of IGAD is a failed initiative.
On a personal note, I believe that IGAD initiative started on wrong foot on the following points:
1. The statement is a clear reinstatement of the Government of South Sudan’s (GOSS) position since this crisis started. The statement seems to imply that there was a coup attempt which undermines the credibility and neutrality of IGAD to mediate South Sudan’s warring parties.
2. The statement erroneously justified the position of the government of South Sudan on coup attempt, which objects the unconstitutional challenge of the democratically elected government of South Sudan, which is false. The SPLM leaders opposed to President never challenged Mr. President’s position at the level of the government of South Sudan.
3. IGAD’s support on the Government of South Sudan’s position will grossly skew the discussion and give the government of South an upper hand. Thus, will undermine the position of the SPLM political leaders led by Dr. Riek, the former vice of the Government of South Sudan. Therefore, this is not helpful and will not help negotiation to be fruitful.
4. The resolution of the Summit is in line with the Ugandan and Kenya’s position in the crisis. Hence, Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of Republic of Uganda is already accused to have sent in troops and fighter jets to South Sudan to aid South Sudan Kiir’s failing support in the Army.
5. And while Kenya president was reported to have stated that “let it be known that we in IGAD will not accept the unconstitutional overthrow of a duly and democratically elected government in South Sudan.” This dangerous and a copy-cat of Yoweri Museveni’s position. As such, it’s irrational and unwise to have Uganda and Kenya mediate peace for South Sudan given their positions.
These are hostile tunes and will not bring the warring parties to the negotiation table. The IGAD’s melody is counterproductive and unwelcomed development. It kneecapped and compromised their partisan position and its prospect to bring peace to South Sudan.
It is disheartening to report that IGAD didn’t fulfill its expected role as a neutral mediator in this crisis, and I therefore concluded that IGAD lack impartiality and must not be the way to go to achieve amicable peace in South Sudan. Not only that, Uganda’s participation in the dialogue will continue to make matter worse due to its unwelcomed militarily interference in the South Sudan’s internal affairs.
At this critical time of need, I therefore call on the African Union, United Nations and the International community (the USA, Canada, Norway, UK, China and Australia) to help mediate South Sudan crisis than IGAD.
It’s important to reinstate that we need peace in South Sudan, but we can’t achieve such amicable peaceful solution through IGAD given their lacks of neutrality and unquestionable alliance with the government of South Sudan.
Lastly, to achieve amicable solution as alluded above between the South Sudan warring parties, I would like to reinstate and strongly recommend that the Africa Union and others neutral bodies must intervene to bring peace to South Sudan than IGAD. The IGAD is obviously not one to bring that peaceful solution.
