Press release; MAY/27/2015,
Dear all; supporters, sympathizers of SPLM/SPLA and the general public, we would like to bring to your attention this press release on the issues of our country.
On 17 May 2015, the leaders of Greater Equatoria in SPLM/SPLA -IO and the leaders of Greater Equatoria serving in government have signed an agreement of ideas on the current crisis that state of South Sudan is passing through and formed a committee from the both sides after meetings that continued for three consecutive days in Kenyan capital Nairobi.
The committee agreed on the unifications of visions that will grantee the immediate implementation of federalism during transitional period as a system of governance in the Republic of South Sudan and comprehensive reforms in all National and state institutions.
In addition to overhaul reform and transformation of national army and the status of National capital city.
This document was signed by representatives of three Equatoria states leaders in government led by Justin Yako and in side of greater Equatoria’s leaders in SPLM/SPLA by Cde. Ramadhan Hassan Lako, the chief coordinator in office of the chairman of SPLM/SPLA-IO, Dr.Riek Machar.
Dear all, suporters and sympathizers; we are hereby affairming to you that the meetings convened by our leaders and those of Equatoria leaders in government of president Salva Kiir in Nairobi, Kenya last week does not reflect returning of any Greater Equatoria leader to the government in Juba and what has been circulating in social media and some websites for defections of Equatoria leaders within the revolutionary movement is just rubbish and baseless allegations.
It is considered as dangerous propaganda which is meant to defame the image of SPLM/SPLA-IO. LT. Gen.Alfred Lado Gore, the deputy chairman of SPLM/SPLA-IO and all leaders of greater Equatoria in SPLM/SPLA-IO are keen enough, remain committed and still loyal to SPLM/SPLA-IO under the leadership of Dr.Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon and they are committed to change the regime by any means possible.
They have no any intention to abandon the revolutionary movement after fighting the government for almost two years.
The leaders from both sides agreed to change the regime in Juba and it should be for immediate effect from now.
The document signed by the both sides will be handed over to IGAD member states, TROIKA countries, Africa Union, and European Union and United Nations and in addition to some African countries such as Nigeria, Chad, Algeria, South Africa and Rwanda.
