WAU, 14 January 2014[Gurtong] - In the letter extended to Gurtong on Monday, signed by the political parties and civil society, the group say the political turmoil which is instigated by the former vice president is beyond uncalled for.

The parties and civil society described Riek Machar’s action as absurdity in the newly independent nation which aims to lead the nation into deeper crisis.

They said when South Sudan gained independence from Sudan, the citizens were to compete with the rest of the world in terms of nation building based on development and rendering of services to the citizens.

“We are one nation so it better for citizens of South Sudan not to support the statements or messages that cannot be justified. Imagine, our country just emerged out from longest civil war of 50 years (1955-2005), this is a time to enjoy peace and build the new nation to compete with the rest of the world,” said the statement.

They urged UNMISS not to instigate the conflict as a tribal and it’s very clear that all political prisoners plus Riek Machar were not from Nuer tribe of Dinka but they are from different tribes of south Sudan.

“We really doubt to Hilde Johnson the UN head in South Sudan by saying that 500 people who were killed in Juba on 15th December 2013 were all Nuer only,” the statement said.

The political parties and civil society organization also urged the media houses in the country to refrain themselves from fabricating the fault messages from the wrong sources causing panic in the country.
