“How many more of these ping-pong sessions, before the UN Security Council & the US administration realizes that this J.C.E pariah regime in Juba is in fact the problem and moves to final take action in South Sudan!”
Those following the ping-pong of negotiations that have suddenly developed between the UN Security Council & the US administration on one side and the Jieng (Dinka) Council of Elders (J.C.E) Pariah regime in Juba on the other, over the deployment of the protection force in Juba, will notice that much is now coming from New York and Washington and less and less from Addis Ababa!
If this regime that had initially said it would not cooperate with the newly enlarged protection force, but since then it has said it was still considering its position, thinks this ping-pong engagement would buy it more time, let it rethink the whole strategy over again.
For now we are being told that the U.N. Security Council diplomats are expected to visit Juba this week.
Down the road, the J.C.E pariah regime in cooperation with the SPLM-IO Renegade General Taban Deng Gai thought, their failed attempt on the life of the country’s legitimate First Vice president, Dr Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon could provide them with a carte blanche to run the show the way they so wished!
Unfortunately for the regime this is not to be simply because the US government whose citizens were sexually abused in Juba is also seeking the same carte blanche in order to protect its interests in South Sudan.
With the Juba under the J.C.E pariah regime being characterized as the most lawless spot in Africa today ( Boko Haram Nigeria included), the fierce fighting in the capital Juba last month has only increased fears that the five-year-old nation could relapse into civil war and hence a hot spot for more anti-Western activities.
This is in fact what prompted the United Nations to authorize the deployment of the extra troops for the 12,000-strong U.N. mission there.
It also explains why last month, the Security Council approved a 4,000-strong protection force for South Sudan’s capital of Juba as part of the UNMISS peacekeeping mission that had its mandate extended in July.
For those virtually hostages of the regime in Juba and only rely on Michael Makuei dis-information propaganda broadcasted day in and day out over the SSBC, there is a need for you to know that all is not rosy as Makuie wishes you to believe.
The truth of the matter is that the J.C.E pariah regime has not only complicated matters for South Sudanese by illegally dismissing the legal FVP Dr. Riek Machar and replacing him with this ego-centric renegade General Taban Deng Gai, but it has in fact compounded the poor civilian population’s sufferings,
This is the reality, in spite of the loose talk from people like John Kerry who seems to only see the Democratic party’s immediate interest at an election time like this.
The UNMISS head, Ellen Margrethe Loej is already on record for this, “We will have together with the government and the minister of foreign affairs to work out programs so that the members of the Security Council (UNSC) can meet the President and government of South Sudan (and) continue discussing how we improve the situation making sure we have peace,” she said.
What we are seeing here is that the UNSC has now practically taken over the dossier of “War & peace in South Sudan” from the IGAD regional body and is determined to take on the J.C.E pariah regime head on.
My question to those “oppose first, then reason later, if ever” politicians in Juba is – how many ping-pong sessions did Saddam Hussein or Mua’mar Ghadafi had with the duo (UNSC & US) before they both became history?
