May 16, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) — According to preliminary reports filed by the IGAD Monitoring and Verification Team-MVT on ground, fighting has been going on in Malakal since yesterday evening. Shilluk militia forces of General Johnson Olony joined by forces from the SPLM/ SPLA -IO attacked against Government forces in and around Malakal.

The IGAD Mediation is deeply frustrated by the spread of violence to Upper Nile and strongly condemns this serious violation of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (CoHA) by SPLM/SPLA-IO and its allied forces and urge the warring Parties to immediately end the killings and all hostilities ravaging the country.

The IGAD Special Envoys again urge the warring Parties to adhere to the commitment they made in the eyes of their people and the international community, and resort to peaceful way of ending the crisis without further delay. ##

    Nuer and Shilluk shouldn’t be trusted. Shilluk and Nuer are very bad and have to be watch very closely.

      Naath/Nuer are the backbone of South Sudan.
      If Shilluk decide to join us, this will be the end of primitive Salva Kiir Rule.

      I am wondering were the Dinka of Upper Nile Region will go this time after listening to Kiir and Killed Naath/Nuer and Shilluk of Greater Upper Nile Region.

      If IGAD WANT PEACE IN SOUTH SUDAN LET THEM TEL CRIMINAL YOWERI KAGUTA MUSEVENI TO WITHDROW HIS UPDF FROM OUR LAND AND LET THEIR ACTION SPEAK MORE LOUDER THAN THEIR WORDS.

      Great message Mr AGUMUT,

      This is your problem: — You kill everyone including those who are self declared neutral and those siding with you.

      Your message is a typical disregard attitude towards other communities. Since you show great foolishness I will remind you that the Chilluks and Nuers-Wew defended Malakal since the war broke out up until now.

      The Nuer-Wew and their Chilluks friends have sacrificed greatly defending your kingdom and you reward them with “they cant be trusted”.

      A few Equatorian ground soldiers recently put down their weapons and ran to UN’s POC because they feared for their lives. They fear your terrorist extremists will turn on them because of your attitude nature of murdering indiscriminately in total disregard of who is on your side.

      Kun Puoc’s body guards were murder last year in Malakal by your terrorist extremist
      The Chilluk general was ambushed by your terrorist extremists.

      With such a mentality you are guaranteed to lose every single one of your supporters.

    Mr. Hailemicheal Gebreselassie,

    You those of IGAD are batch of dictators, blood suckers, liars, and bias. Your report on the battle that is taking place in Malakal is bias. The Shilluk Militias have been occupied Malakal for over three weeks ago, so it was not Shilluk Militias who attacked the government, but it was government who attacked the Shilluk Militias in Malakal. The SPLM-IO did not involved in fight in Malakal. Please stop lying although you had briefed by the government of South Sudan to liar against Shilluk Militias and the SPLM-IO.

        “Malakal is in the hands of Dr Riek Machar.” You meant Dr.Ebola ? How do you dismiss the really information from the native of the lands? They are the one who know exactly what going on in their lands.
        Abushok battalion is composed of Apadang Dinka who fighting in Malakal.
        Well, it doesn’t matter if Dr. Ebola captured with Chollo Militias, they will run away soon.

      The cycle of brutality should end as soon as Kiir is gone. You cant stoop to the level of those terrorist after the changes have been made or it would make no sense at all. Those who are found guilty of crime should be brought to justice end of story. We have to learn to forgive maybe not now but later for sure. I do understand where you are coming from though. Lawlessness is one of our main problems –just one of them.

    Dinka are coward people.Its a proof from February 2014 battle in Bor, Malualchoat, Panpandiar and Pariangs.They have no immunity to fight Nuer to death.They are stronger because of UPDF presence in the country that is why they will never conceded Nuer victory over them until Uganda pull out. Its better for South Sudan to path in Somalian way than Gaat Neeni tii Naath taking second class citizen.
