Peace Ambassador Gatwech addresses the crowd at Gender Violence

March 6, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — In an interview today March 6, 2015 in Addis Ababa, Peace Ambassador Gatwech Koak Nyuon said that he received more than sixty – (60) telephone calls from unknown numbers inside and outside Ethiopia in which five (5) calls were seriously threatening his life.

Gatwech who was last year named as Peace Ambassador by Ethiopian Church admitted that he would never give-up to call for peace in his young nation.

“I know this happened many times to Mr. Deng Athuai, The Chairperson of South Sudan’s Civil Society Alliance and I’m not surprise to receive more threatening calls from enemy [ies] of peace, why not billions of threatening calls.” He said. This happened after he directly calls on principals who were negotiating in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to respect the deadline.

In his personal statement published on paanluelwel and wangdunkon media on March 4, 2015, Gatwech calls on both leaders to respect the deadline. His statement partly read, “I’m not sure, but I believe neither Riek’s nor Kiir’s sons are fighting in front-line.“ A statement he refers to low pace of peace in South Sudan.

South Sudan has been known for its record on Human Rights abuse, restriction of Journalists and Activists from freedom of movement and speech.

Gatwech appreciated the roles played by local and international media for publishing some positive reports toward nation building. He also urges the media houses to act responsively as gear of change and distance themselves from tribal politics. “I know this is not happening to me alone, it’s happening to all Activists and Journalists all over the World. I will continue working with media to deliver message of peace. Those who hear will hear and those who always threatening will keep threatening but we will defeat them!” He added.

Peace Ambassador repeatedly urged the AU Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan to release the report on atrocities committed by warring factions and appeal to South Sudan’s leaders to put the nation’s interest above their owns. He concluded that he is very disappointed to see women and children suffering.

    Is not him alone, the rebels supporters are not happy with former vice president Riek Machar because they says, too many demanding by rebels leader had block peace process. I personal did mention at this website that, I am doubting that peace deal wouldn’t success why because the Juba’s government are not going to accepted any statement about two separate armies in small one country that is lacking funds. Another one demanding of dissolving the current constitutional is not going to be accepted by Juba’s government. Also demanding to Dissolving MPS or cabinets will not going to work. According to former SPLA IO spokesman Lul Ruai Koang, the former vice president is putting agendas which will make it difficult for peace deal to successful. These too many demanding have kills peace agreement in Ethiopia. Please keep singing about hoping peace deal but put in mind that, the Addis Ababa is known for bad luck on Sudanese peace agreement just how many peace agreements have been held since the beginning of the SPLA/SPLM and none were actually successful there.

      Mr mawien.
      Who is not him alone?

      Look mr mawien, mentioning the so called Lul (trader) in your comment was another weakness of how this man called salvage killer has be come a self destroyer for south sudan. You still playing a blaming game in any way, however,it isn’t going to last long any longer my friend because killer has brought this war to south sudan intentionaly.

      If we(south sudanese) asking the right questions, Does any one commited a crime convicted herself or himself?”i killed the subject” it would be no. All those in the goverment will never accept an error made the goverment because they all parts of it.

    There is no two armies juba’s 30% will just be integrated in and absorbed into the 70% the opposition has maintained. If this scare you then peace without two armies concerned those who were and are still being targeted base on their ethnicity. Quite frankly, since after july 9th 2011 South Sudantribune really had one unified national army so why is such a strange phenomenon all of a sudden. No two armies no peace. Just put it like that. SPLM/A-Pagaak will not make that mistake. Not with the ethnic regime’s destructive self serving characters and criminals like Kiir, Malong, M7 and the Jaang Elders
