OPINION – Every day passes, the struggles of our heroic people under the umbrella of the National Salvation Front, in which the dwarf organization known falsely and flirtatiously as SPLM-IO, led by Riek Machar, fails to break the National Salvation Front thorn whether by its continuous complicity with the regime’s militias in the attack on the positions of the National Salvation Front forces, or resorting to the cheap propaganda.
Yesterday, the SPLM-IO released its latest bankruptcy papers in everything related to politics in an attempt to cover up its connivance with the regime’s militias in targeting the people of South Sudan especially in the Greater Equatoria states to heal what is in the hearts of its leaders from the shame of treachery that is still haunting them as they become puppets in the hands, with which, the agreement for destroying the unity of our country is being implemented.
The clown political situation of the SPLM-IO which claimed liberation, but overnight, turned into a humiliating and aggressive follower against the will of our people for change in order to satisfy the aspirations of its leaders to sit on the chairs of shame is indeed a great setback.
Perhaps on this matter, it was expected in advance that they would not perform actions that differ from the disgraced chairs they sit on today as they strive to prove their loyalty to the regime through despicable actions as the video that has been circulated these days on social media by some elements of SPLM-IO while they celebrate the torture of one of its follower as usual.
This video is a clear evidence for the criminal acts that the SPLM-IO has been continually practicing against its members as it has a long history of physical assassination of its members and innocent civilian throughout the country and especially in the Greater Equatoria States.
Perhaps in regard this matter, our people know the brutal Gen. Moses Lukujo who is currently imprisoned because of his bloody actions in which he victimized many senior officers in the ranks of SPLA-IO and soldiers leave alone the civilians he killed in cold blood to the extent that, he reached with his barbaric acts in one of the refugee camps in the neighboring countries.
Through the testimony of acting Commander of Division 2 Sector 8 of SPLM-IO, Brigadier General Isaac Aminga himself, this time as usual, John Sebit Simon has become a victim of the plots of his leaders. He confirmed that the tortured soldier was the one who personally trained him in Akiba Yei River county.
The question that arises is, when and where did the recruiter John Sebit join the National Salvation Front, at a time the records of our forces refute this allegation made by the Intelligence of SPLM-IO?
There is no doubt that the leaked video is a cheap propaganda that does not differ much from the previous one as we are used to from the SPLM-IO Machar faction to achieve two things: either to cover up the crimes of its bloody leaders or to cover up the defeats of their forces. In both cases, the SPLM-IO this obnoxious style used it as a means of escaping from its shameful manner which was embodied by this leaked video.
Although we also agonized by their incessant defeats at the hands of our forces, but they did not leave us with another option as long as their forces are fighting on the wrong side. Therefore, it is our revolutionary duty to defend ourselves and the Civilians relentlessly. The promoters of this terrorist video will not victimized NAS which is struggling for the freedom and dignity of our people by all means in spite of their cheap propaganda that, in my opinion, provides a great service to the National Salvation Front in that is steadfast with our people in one trench.
Truly, the hopeless agreement of today (R-ARCSS), justifies the struggles of the National Salvation Front that through this, it will provide solutions to the root cause of the country’s problem which the forgotten forces of SPLM-IO in the jungles of South Sudan desperately need.
The story of the circulated video is completely fabricated and unfounded.
It could only be in the minds of the promoters of such wrong ideas who suffer from the curse of betrayal and loss in the midst of dark and deadly politics. Inevitably one day, the National Salvation Front will be their true savior from this political turmoil, which Dr. Riek Machar and his close elite took the price for, indifferent to our people’s rights to live in dignity.
This shame cannot be covered up with cheap propaganda or any act of villainous actions that the SPLM-IO has defended it by clinging to the chairs of shame. The situation that motivated some of its patriotic members to go out and leave the train of shame led by Dr. Machar today, to go to hell.
The organization that defends the right of the people is well known by its nationalistic positions towards the people, but not by cheap propaganda just as the SPLM-IO has used to introduce itself by, from time to time as fake and monopolized organization as its leader Dr. Riek Machar and his elites, that due to their political follies, has turned its forgotten forces in the jungles of South Sudan into bandits and partners of the regime in all crimes.
Unfortunately, this is what the SPLM-IO is doing today through its forgotten affiliates and those who have lost the compass, who we sincerely call on them to free themselves from the illusions of their movement led by Riek Machar, who betrayed them in the daytime situation and left them facing an unknown fate.
It is our revolutionary duty to call them to return back to their senses, which the leader SPLM-IO Dr. Riek Machar has rebated it through mocked position and funny ranks to serve his personal agenda. Thus it is advisable for them to join the National Salvation Revolution led by Gen. Thomas Cirillo Swaka which has its roots, firmly rooted in the soil of our country through determination of its members in defending the will of the people of South Sudan for change and strive to achieve a bright future for the next generations. The truth is, that SPLM-IO has betrayed the cause of the people of South Sudan in order for its leaders to sit on chairs of shame.
