May 19, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — Equatorians have been fighting and more were recruited to defend the tribal and ruthless Dictator President Salva Kiir. I want to seriously informed and warn the people of Greater Equatoria to avoid being used by the tribal government using few equatorian opportunists within the dying Juba government. You have been all along fighting against your interest.
The tribal and genocidal army of Juba regime is not defending the constitution but Salva Kiir. Where is democracy when elected officials are removed and replace by the president at any time, where is democracy when a journalist is only allowed to air good report about the government, where is democracy when citizens are not allowed to speak their minds, where is justice when more than 20,000 innocent Nuer and others are being massacred in Juba in addition to hourly death, where is justice when the killers are still roaming the streets of Juba and controlling the country like their personal property, where is accountability when money is being corrupted in a broad day light to enrich one group of people, where is accountability when innocent civilians are being killed based on their ethnicity without bringing the killers to book, where is equality when opportunities are offered to one group of people, where is equality when people are being classified into different ranks, first, second, third fourth class and so on, where is equality when others are not allowed to stand for public office.
Equatorians must not accept to join government force and this ongoing recruitment must fail by all means. If you are force to join the tribal army to defend the dictator, then I urge you to turn your guns against the dictator who have caused untold suffering to our people. On the other hand, I called on all of you the Equatorians to join the armed resistance movement the SPLM/A in opposition under the visionary, and democratic federal leader Comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon.
The people of Equatoria have been calling for federal system of governance and this has become an overdue demand and I want to inform you that you cannot achieve federal system under dictator Salva Kiir, you have tried it several times and all attempts were thrown into a dustbin. Why are you defending a dictator who is against the interest of your people and killing those who are fighting to implement a system that all of us want. We the people of Equatoria must come to understanding that this is a matter of life and death, the choice is ours.
Finally, the programmes of reforms and system of governance that the visionary and democratic leader comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon put on the table will put a full stop to all our problems and suffering. I see bright picture of hope under Dr. Riek Machar and a totally No future under tribal leader Salva Kiir. Please Equatorians, let us wake up and join the people’s resistance movement under His Excellency Dr. Riek Machar. South Sudan will never be the same again. Change must come under a new system. I am calling for all of you to join now and not tomorrow.
