Statement by Government of Wau Federal State-IO

JUN/17/2017; The Government of Wau Federal State in Opposition would like to dismiss the attempted moves, by the Government of Salva Kiir Mayardit, to isolate the SPLM-IO Chairman, Dr Riek Machar Teny Dhorgan, and to deny the leadership of SPLM-IO to participate in the process of searching for lasting peace in the Republic of South Sudan.

We would rather welcome the position of IGAD head of the states, in their communiqué of the 31st Extra-Ordinary Summit on South Sudan, in which the IGAD head of the states illustrated on important of convening high level of Revitalization Forum of ARCSS including estranged groups to the agreement.

The government of Wau Federal State in Opposition and its citizen are united behind the leadership of SPLM-IO, under Command of Dr Riek Machar Teny Dhorgan

We, in Wau Federa State, are fully in support of SPLM-IO Chairman, Dr Riek Machar Teny, to represent us in any peace process with regime in Juba.

We would like to re-assure our position of no peace in the South Sudan without Dr Riek Machar Teny, the Chairman and Commander in Chief of SPLM/A-IO.

    I think you people have problem with understanding English
    The statement was very clear even though some of you want to twist it.
    Rick must denounce violence before being included. If he is not willing UP is not Riack Machar only. He can send other people who love peace. Now the whole international community is asking one simple thing to do. They should declare a cecfire and enter a political settlement. So do not capitalise on bonuse
    Nonsense. The problem is you UP Riack Machar group are not honest and you have a hidden plan but a plan without a vision is difficult to release. If you love the people of this country, you would not insist in prolonging the suffering of the people but what we now see is UP is only interested on its members and their supporters. Every moment somebody talks, that person will be alleged to have been briefed by the government. This a dangerous mentality aimed at sliancing those who want to oppose the way UP does thing. It is worse dictatorship of all kind. It is difficult to work with liars and people who are not honest. So Riack is not refused to take part in the ND if he denounce violence. So you have a choices to make brothers

    What has ARCISS has not covered that national dialogue will? It must be noted that that agreement come about after a lengthy deliberation by all South Sudanese of different political persuasion on finding a set of rules that is supposed to make a foundation on which the nation-state South Sudan would be built on justice and freedom. Now national dialogue has come to our our political horizon just not for sake of it but to derail a noble peace agreement that must be implemented without reservations because I believe that is the only way a real, just peace can be achieved in the country. Other propositions from neighboring countries just to enable extend their clout to exploit our resources over our poverty must be viewed with envy that must be confronted. It is clear as it stands now our resources have become the reason we are perishing because the incompetent government of the country went with a loud mouth inviting Chapati makers to invest in the country and declaring what we have underground to the world without silently and strategically work out means of exploiting ithem for the benefit of the country. To me real national dialogue can be done after implementation of ARCISS as signed in 2015 and so it should be.
