Press Release: 15/APRIL/2015
Declaration of Joining the SPLM-In Opposition
I am hereby declaring my intention of joining the Peoples’ Movement, the SPLM-IO, under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar Teny.
The government has lost its legitimacy according to my opinion due to its inability to provide most of the basic services to the suffering citizens.
The high level of rampant insecurity, injustices and corruption are clear symptoms of a country that has lost leadership and direction.
I am therefore appealing to our citizens to rise up and join the people’s resistence, the SPLM-IO, which offers the only viable option for bringing the highly required fundamental changes and requirements in all sectors of our government.
Let’s join hands to save our Nation.
In these trying hours, South Sudan is at a risk of total collapse if the failed regime in Juba is not removed.
The collapsing economy and the lack of visionary leadership are fast leading the country into abyss.
The regime that has become morally bankrupt is using ethnic sentiments to cling to power. This will lead the country into total disintegration.
Just as countries can come into existence, they can also be lost through bad leadership.
Long live the people of South Sudan.
Long live the SPLM-IO.
(signed) Captain Joseph Clement Wani Konga
