South Sudan Government Peace Talks Secrets Exposed

Juba, December 28, 2014 (SSNA) -- South Sudanese President Salva kiir Mayardiit on Sunday (South Sudan time) convened a secret national security meeting with his top government officials, the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) has learned.

Kiir and heads of his security bureaus discussed ways to deal with any resistance; the alternatives include systematic suppression of media, government critics, and opposition groups, among others.  The conference also chooses military option as the only viable mean to defeat the ongoing rebellion if rebels reject government peace offer.

The meeting, which was chaired by President Kiir, attended by senior military, intelligence, and security officials was held at J1 headquarters of the SPLA and lasted for more than four hours.

During the meeting, President Kiir talked about the importance of having a strong security agency, and quickly brought up the name of the internal security as an example.

After the gathering, a four point’s resolution was then passed.

In the declaration, the Internal Security, a branch of South Sudan’s National Intelligence must closely work with the Ministry of Interior to crash what they described as “internal dissents”.

Gen. Paul Malong Awan, the Chief of Staff of the SPLA-Juba was tasked to deal with the ongoing rebellion including any external threat. Gen. Malong is also instructed to work with few unnamed Ugandan military officers and to not sleep until the rebellion is crashed.

The resolution further disclosed that South Sudanese government will only accept peace if rebels agreed to Juba proposal and declared opposition demands unacceptable.

The national security declaration also asserted that if the anti-government forces and their political leaders reject government proposal, then, the only option is to defeat them militarily.

After the meeting was concluded, all the representatives of agencies in attendance were told by President Kiir to immediately implement the resolution, warning that any failure will not be tolerated.

Tension High in Kakuma Refugee camp as Refugees Refused to Welcome Pastor Rev.Peter Gai Lual

Press Release

December 24, 2014 (SSNA) -- According to an eye witness who is also a young patriotic who took refuge in Kakuma refugee camp (Zone 5) describes the tension between the Rev. Gai Lual loyalists and the rest of believers who declare not to receive anybody who support the filthy regime under President Salva Kiir Mayardit as high.

"The tension is very high up to now, congregations have split into two groups those who support Rev. Peter Gai Lual the Moderator of Presbyterian Churches of Sudan (P.C.O.S) and those who refuse to attend the services headed by somebody who supports a dictator to rule (He Gai Lual)" say the witness.

The source believe that youths who serve as Choirs from the church are all mobilized and put on alert by some group of Pastors and elders including deacons who are headed by the Pastor in charge Rev. Peter Gony Yach and Captain choirs Mr.Majak Chot Khat as the ring leader who will face any threat from any group of youths who want to disturbs the Moderator as he celebrate the Christmas day.

"The man of God Rev. Gai Lual have forgotten the ways of teaching and preaching the words of God since he decided to support the government who killed and molest more souls last year in Juba" said little girl who serve a Sunday school in Presbyterian Church of Sudan.

"Gai Lual is not our moderator anymore, because he Gai condemns the resistance forces in Bentiu went the mighty freedom fighter force the dictatorial warriors to evacuate the town" shouted one of the youth who react out of anger….

We need good pastors who fear God and fear humanity we don’t need pastors who bribe youths to go back to the same government who massacre them …..

These are names of those who are bribing people and instigating/ fueling the fight to occure; Stephen Lam Changath, Mary Nyantut Wan and the overall commander the pastor in charge Peter Gony Yach

1. Pastors should keep their tongues out of political strife because they are directors of life.

However, through the ages we has seen nations rise and fall, flourish and decay, so we need to play a good role as consultants, an advisers, even at times a referees. Needless to say, we need to improve on our own leadership, too, at all levels.

The Church needs to talk to other faiths. In our African situation, first of all to the heirs of tradition who honour the ancestors, then to Jews and Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists, and to secularists who are not without morality and values either. Any tradition with reverence for the Creator and/or positive community values needs to be respected by the State as a constructive force.

We need honest leaders, men and women who “do justice, and love kindness, and walk humbly with their God” (Micah 6:8). This will show up in their deeds, not in dressing up in church uniforms. Only citizens happy to serve in a lowly position will give us leaders who remain humble even when they have reached the top.
