Thiang Nuer Youth Association condemns Government’s continues offensive, calls for more humanitarian assistance

Press release

September 20, 2015 (SSNA) — First and foremost, the Thiang Nuer Youth Association would like to condemn in the strongest term possible, the Juba’s Government continuing offensive contrary to IGAD-PLUS compromise Peace Accord signed last month in Addis Ababa as well as in Juba.  We know, the government’s prime objective (as it has been always the case) is to exterminate further, displace more innocent civilians and to gain new territories not under its control in three states of Greater Upper Nile.

Unequivocally, even after when the peace agreement was signed by Juba the same Juba government was also busy throughout sending military-war-barges mounted with lethal modern weapons, manoeuvring to destroy further Greater Upper’s original three states. Those military barges chaotically attacked and bombed Unity state’s Panyijiar, Leer, Koch, Guit counties and Fangak county of Phow (Jonglei) state as well as Panyikang county of Fashoda (Upper Nile) state. Fangak County was where ninety (90%) percent of all sycophants -soldiers lured in those military barges met their deserved end, with their military hard-ware completely destroyed by the Freedom fighters, the SPLA-IO supported by the community based rapid defend force, the White Army.

Millions congratulations / bravos to Freedom Fighters!! If truth itself is God, then all those who are financially and easily enticed to stand up not for public interest will likewise continue meet their own death-end in South Sudan’s soil. “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves and cursed by God.”

As a result of Government’s continuing indiscriminate attacks, (on the civilians’ residential areas) civilians’ death tolls increased, sufferings and many more displacements occurred particularly in Southern-eastern counties of Unity state. Since then, Fangak (South) county has been receiving more families and IDPs from the latter state. These families and IDPs are mostly coming from Unity state through swamps/rivers direct to Fangak (South) county of Mareang, Toch and Old Fangak Payams. And they (IDPs) are now increasingly in a dire need of humanitarian assistance. We have also learned that some of these IDPs are moved to Fangak Central-Northern part of Lak clan. The IDPs are mostly if not all elderly people, women and children. 

Therefore, the Association of Thiang Nuer Youth in Fangak (South) County calls upon all available humanitarian agencies in the county to help these IDPs and needy families with both food and non-food items. World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) should immediately step in: to render the basic services to the IDPs displaced from Unity state to Fangak (South) county. These helps or basic services are most urgently needed now!!
