SPLM-in Opposition in the United States condemns parliamentary move to extend president Kiir’s term

United States, March 25, 2015 (SSNA) — The SPLM/A-[in Opposition] Mission to the United States of America condemns in the strongest terms possible the recent passing of the bill by the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) on the 24th of April, 2015 that amended the 2011 transitional constitution of South Sudan and extended the term of office for the embattled, genocidal and anarchist president, Salva Kiir Mayardit, for three more years until July 9, 2018, while his current atrocious term in office is coming to an end on July 9th of this year.

The SPLM/A further decry this unjust and illegal move by the disgraceful parliament to extend its sitting term, and that of a bloody dictator who has brought more death and destruction to his people; without regard to prioritize peacemaking as a foremost objective to bring the country back to normalcy.

This unfortunate measure has further validated the popular belief of the masses that the current parliament is weak and subservient to the clueless leader. In essence, this parliament has betrayed the entire people of South Sudan by aiding Salva Kiir to remain as president of the country beyond the constitutionally stipulated time frame. And by enacting this unpatriotic amendment to the constitution, this parliament could share the culpability of the crimes committed, and future crimes that will be committed by this fascist under this bill.

Therefore, The SPLM/A calls on the people of South Sudan to reject and continue to resist this irresponsible act that has the potential to protract the current civil war to the detriment of the ordinary people of South Sudan, who do not deserve to suffer any longer under this president of doom.

We call on IGAD, AU, EU, the UN, and the USA, as well as, the whole international community to amount pressure on the government of South Sudan to prioritize peace instead of its militaristic tendencies that are bound to further plunge the country into the abyss.

The SPLM/A wishes to assure its supporters and the entire people of South Sudan that it will leave no stone unturned in its quest for a genuine peace in the country, and to rest-assured that the SPLM/A would not abandon them to dictatorship and want on misrule.
