April 4, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — It has been at least one year since the Juba massacre and the subsequent formation of a national resistant movement the SPLM/A in Opposition. The emergence of the SPLM/A in opposition in addition to the task shouldered to Dr. Riek Machar Teny as the chief executive of the movement although not [ SPLM/A in opposition ] anticipated by the people of South Sudan was a great historic move taken by the sons and daughters of South Sudan in respond to Salva Kiir’s rhetoric political wrangling.
Almost three months from now, sporadic circulation of propaganda purportedly aimed at confusing and establishing the movement and diverting away the attention of the people of South Sudan from sympathizing the movement gain momentum.
He who is lobbying to take over the leadership of the resistant movement from H.E Dr. Riek Machar is crossing a Red Line that he will not even anticipated to afford. Dr. Machar is a SYMBOL of national unity and solidarity that provides clean drinking water for the entire population of South Sudan and you must bear in mine that I am not saying the movement lack diehard patriots and intellectuals capable of leading the movement rather than Dr. Machar himself, however Dr. Riek Machar is a humble servant and a statesman that for one and many reasons reflect the unity and peaceful co-existence of the South Sudanese people at large and deserves to be the next president of this nation.
Under his leadership, the movement is overseeing a solid and strategic diplomatic relations compare to that rotten foreign relations being overseen by Salva Kiir Mayardiit in Juba, which is a bunch of anti-South Sudanese’s peaceful co-existence.
The South Sudanese, region and the international community must have realized by now that Dr. Riek Machar Teny has been the backbone of this nation, especially for the last ten years. Notwithstanding the fact that the SPLM/SPLA is strongly united despite that Dr. Machar is not providing any salary or superior weapons, the region and the international community is now siding with the defamed opposition (SPLM/SPLA-IO) instead of those corrupt and tribal pundits in Juba, who call themselves the legitimiate government of South Sudan.
Those who are overseeing an act of jealousy within the movement while people are busy exerting more efforts to defeat Salva Kiir’s standlinsm in a midst of chaos must rather leaves peacefully instead of committing setbacks in the struggle and I am very sure that the absence of Dr. Riek Machar Teny’s leadership in the movement is automatically a dramatic news to the movement that has an unlimited appetite of Dr. Machar’s style of leadership.
In conclusion, the leadership and the supporters of the movement must strongly condemn the online Sudantriune and Upper nile time, who have turned the enemy of freedom for circulating false news on April first as April fools. This April Fools’ day is intended for practical jokes and hoaxes that are subsequently explained within a day or two. This culture is foreign and must not be abused by the media to create unnecessary tension. In addition, the jokes and hoaxes must be logical and practical.
