April 16, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The Chairman and commander in chief of the armed Opposition, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, has arrived in Pagak, South Sudan, for SPLM/SPLA [IO] leadership conference.

Sources from Pagak confirm that the former Vice President arrived after 8pm on Thursday, April 15, 2015.

The conference, which was expected to start on 10th April, will officially kicks off on Monday, April 20th, 2015.

According to Dickson Gatluak, Dr. Machar was warmly received by the community and SPLM/SPLA[IO] leadership in Pagak, South Sudan.

“Dr.Machar was warmly welcomed by the youth,women and generals in the army military base as well as the church leaders to show their loyalty, respect,love and commitment to stand behind him.” Gatluak said.

A reliable source confirms that many military generals and politicians from other parts of the country have arrived at the venue. This will be the second major convention for the Opposition within five months.

In December the Opposition held a mega conference to normalize the ranks and files of the rebel movement. Contrary to many speculations, December conference was a success for the opposition. All the promoted military generals and appointed military governors accepted their positions and began their duties.

Observers believe that the current convention aims to consult the SPLM/SPLA leadership on the upcoming IGAD-plus peace mediation.

According to IGAD leaked framework, the two principles would be expected to sign a proposed peace agreement on April 18, 2015, a dateline that is likely to pass before the principles return to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    Welcome home Dr. to consults the people (S. Sudanese citizens) of the movement! That’s why we always like your leadership simply because you consult before you take any decision or action compared to the one of yes-men in Juba who always depend on Mr. Kiir’s decisions which doesn’t need any inputs.

    Abusive,he had abused all Dinka and they call Dinka to overthrow government.

    Nuer’s Diaspora need to think twice before joining the so-called SPLM-IO. I remembered those youth from Immigrants born of the West who have joined ISIS,most of them have lost their lives,but some are back to Western Europe,but they are in Prisons.

    You are all happy at this moment, but you will be unhappy soon when you hear struggling and fighting over leadership in that meeting. Things will exploit sooner before April 20, which is Monday. Mark my word

    Our Democratic principles are not about leadership, but about the people of south Sudan who are currently suffering in the hand of a monster born from bahr El ghasal region, what you are saying is all that you have
    Remember all the south Sudan intellectuals and visionary ones are already with Dr. Riack, note that Dr Riack has the backing of the people of south Sudan except you yourself whom we think will even join soon,
    bro,whether you like or not, no wrangolling in the SPLM/A IO because of leadership, pray to be alive so that you can share from the new life and real freedom of the federal republic of south sudan under SPLM/A IO under Dr Riack who has rich ideas in nation building

    I am optimistic that the event will be peaceful, productive with a satisfactory conclusion. Well wishes to all the participants and may peace be with them.

    Should you decide to defect to the SPLM/A-Pagaak, there is a 12 Steps program to help individuals like yourself & those terminally ill from curable tribal diseases & mediocre traumatic idealism. Please take advantage of this program while it lasts.

      To Defect to whom while i am not in the government. Please that would be My dead body if i join that silly and Nincompoop rebels.

      Thank you for bringing that up. Machar & his #2 & #3 should take on a low profile approach or stay in the field


  13. April 16, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    We want to see a genuine peace at this time, because peace is different from playing a card game. The card game that we have been playing will take us to no where. It will just tear our country apart. Secondly, It’s a bad idea for Kiir to always call amnesty, You don’t call amnesty to people whom you victimized. You should first find a way to restore the trust.


  14. April 16, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    We highly welcome you Dr Machar for the second conference in pagak I hope this conference will yield apositive result

May Almighty God bless you so that RSS can see a sustainable Future!

    The South Sudanese history is incomplete without Machar. He first advocated for self determination and was denounced by his rivals.And after many fights and debates,his idea became the driving force for the South Sudanese people.
    Today, he and those who love freedom and democracy have embarked on a flight that is gaining momentum in South Sudan.
    Machar,may God bless you and bless your fight for Federal South Sudan.

    As a Liberian, I have been following
    development in South Sudan with much
    internet. And what is happening in South Sudan reminds me of my own country Liberia.
    In Liberia, for instance, we fought for fourteen years to have democracy. And made history for Africa for electing the first female president after fourteen years of civil war.
    Today, no one can rule us for life. And we have the power to vote anyone we want without fear.
    Good luck South Sudan. Don’t be like Uganda where Mussevini son will use force to install his son in power.

      Let’s me say this all Dinkas are not wise enough Execept Garang De Mabior i know for sure.

    Pagak or Nyigat, it will harvest nothing tangible as long as Juba blessing is not sort.
    my message to those Internet warmongers with their wishful thinking of controlling South Sudan and installing prophet of Doom (Riek) at the helm.
    I am sure your endless howling from PoC Camps and hotels of Nairobi & Addis through social media, changes nothing on the ground.
    You become like women gossipers with open ears to hear what happen in Juba, who was death, who was sick, dollars fluctuations, government appointments and dismissal etc. For Christ sake is that rumor mongering propaganda going to unset the government in Juba I will say maybe after one century.
    Everybody who massed up in Juba, just fly to Nairobi or Addis with claim of joining the rebellion for so and so reasons, which you hotel-rebels happily and shamelessly advertise to the world through your monotonous media propaganda as something big is happening, moreover they are just number of opportunistic individuals seeking recognition and glimmering titles of Commander X, youth Leader y, Ministers son etc. nonsense, which was idiotically promoted by Nyigat sympathizers like you, you will bark until you bark no more lunatics.

      The Dr: Reik Machar , meeting in Fagak is for more destruction , Nuers always considered themselves foreigners, in South Sudan, They never fought for it indenpendent they were eating blood money from Arab, This is continuation of destruction since 1983–2005, Killing Dinka helping Arab.
