April 29, 2017 (Nyamilepedia) —— The violence in South Sudan has escalated in a large scale due to the offensive of the government of South Sudan against the armed opposition, Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary General of the United Nations has said in a statement.

According to him, the United Nations is disturbed by the high level of the violence that has recently displaced civilians from their homes and caused many of them suffering. The United Nations called upon the South Sudan warring factions to cease hostilities, protect civilians and allow the humanitarian services to reach the people in need.

The world body has called for a peaceful settlement of the conflict, urging that there will be no military solution to the crisis in South Sudan. Stéphane calls upon regional and international peace partners to join hands with the United Nations to arrest the situation by quickly returning to the negotiating table.

We hope regional and international partners will join us in encouraging the parties to return urgently to the negotiating table, and we remain committed to working with the African Union and IGAD to secure a peaceful resolution of the conflict.

  • Force.
    Force is the only language that the genocidical mob in Juba understands. AU and UN must apply sufficient force to crush the aggression coming out of Juba. Economical and political and by a weapons embargo. Enlisting money recovery expertise to return stolen means to an international body overseeing its use to rescue to country. Use whatever means necessary to shut the Juba mob down.
    No future without the IO, this has been clear for a long time. Those who switched sides from IO to IG (crown mob), disqualified (like all traitors are) for future functions in the new government, on the IO side, they can compete with the IG side for a part in the future political space, but they will never be speakers for IO, the real IO which only fights in self defence against the aggression cooked up by IG and the unprincipled, opportunistic, cowards at the Crown Hotel.

    ARCISS is the best start for things (kick out Festus first though)
