Latest news today from highly connected and reliable sources in Juba revealed that President Salva Kiir unexpectedly and suddenly departed today for Nimule, on the Uganda-South Sudan border, in a very big convoy of military vehicles that included heavy tanks and armed soldiers.
This latest development only confirms the clear fact that the Kiir’s Dinka-dominated government does not believe or expect peace in the country but is firmly prepared for war now.
As reported, president Kiir’s objective in Nimule is to receive and expedite the smuggle of arms and other war materials from Uganda into the country in a blatant contravention on the recently imposed United Nations and President Donald Trump’s USA arms embargo on South Sudan.
Clearly, this is undisputed evidence that president Kiir’s terror regime is obstructing and refusing to bring any peace in the country.
Furthermore, it’s obviously clear that the next revitalization peace process scheduled is now doomed by Kiir’s apparent moves to smuggle more weapons into the country and to continue his genocidal war against the people of South Sudan.
The principal criminal actor in abetting the importation and arming Kiir is Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni, who’s shamelessly in complete solidarity with president Kiir. Uganda’s president Museveni has now exposed himself as a true enemy to the people of South Sudan.
With these latest ominous developments, it should be plainly clear to all those political parties and armed groups that recently partook in the failed Addis Ababa IGAD so-called peace revitalization process, that president Kiir is not ready for any negotiations with any opposition groups.
As rightly described by the Trump’s US government, president is indeed an “unfit partner” in the so-called peace process and as such, all the opposition groups that are purportedly ‘fighting’ to oust the Kiir regime must strenuously support the arms embargo on the Kiir regime.
Furthermore, if Kiir’s returns from Nimule armed to the teeth with the Museveni guns, the opposition groups must come out and loudly condemn Uganda and its president, Museveni and also Kenya’s president Kenyatta, as those arms that will be given to Kiir must have originated from Mombasa.
Obviously, the IGAD so-called ‘Revitalization’ talks is a mockery to the suffering people of South Sudan and it’s time for the international community to impose more strenuous sanctions against the Kiir regime with immediate effect.
Finally, it’s imperative that all the anti-Kiir opposition groups must come together to expedite the removal of the Kiir regime. END
