March 5, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Today around 6:30 Am, government allied troops and militias launched multiple attacks on the opposition forces at Gerbani and Dukduk, in the far North of Upper Nile state.

“Government has been trying so hard for all these time to take the control of these areas but our freedom fighters have repulsed and chased them toward Renk town this morning” Said an SPLA-IO officer, Wat Peter, in Renk County.

“The aggressive forces of Salva Kiir are now advancing towards Wadekona to regain the control of the area which had been under our  army control” Said Clement Mead, an SPLA-IO officer at Wadekona.

“The SPLA/IO repulsed all those attempted attacks by the Government troops”, the officer continued referring to earlier attempts on their positions.

In Addis Ababa, the South Sudanese principals, who have been in talks for the last three days, will resume negotiations passed the agreed dateline this morning Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

According to SPLM/SPLA lead negotiator, Dr. Dhieu Mathok Diing, chances of the two principals reaching an agreement soon are very limited.

“To what I know; unless the unknown happened today as a gift of God. To my understanding as per the meeting which we were with President Kiir up 8pm yesterday; there is no hope and there is nothing good in this meeting” Said the lead negotiator of SPLM-IO, Dr. Dhieu Mathok Diing.

SPLM-IO gives the UN Security Council a green light to impose sanctions and armed embargo on the two warring parties to cease hostilities and restore stability in the country.

  • Do not mention the name of Gen. Johnson Olony every time you get defeated. As I said last time you go and fight Salva Kiir in Juba do not waste your time fighting ghosts. Olony’s case is different and has self-defense element not political agenda. tell your thugs to understand that.
    You could have lured him to your side had you acted differently when you invaded Malakal and you could have benefited from the known Shilluk position against Kiir.

  • Ater, when will you mentally challenged people comprehend that the war has nothing to do to bring Riek Machar to power? Keep living under illusion..had you not killed innocent Nuer in Juba our country wouldn’t be in flame today. And for Wau, if your tribal government is that powerful then why import mercenaries and sell the country to foreigners. Some of you thick skull headed cannot reason beyond your noses.
