In their a statement seen by Chimpreports, SSCEC has urged Dr. Riek Machar and all dissatisfied parties to accept ceasefire and/or initiate ceasefire and adhere to principles of democracy that they are advocating.


They further demanded that civilians who are living in the captured towns and areas and now under the control of Machar forces are protected as well as their properties and have their rights and respect.


“We are appealing to the United States government and United Nations (UN) to exert political pressure on President Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar and all opposition parties to immediately stop hostilities,” the statement reads.


They have demanded that UN should establish camps for the displaced and provide necessary security protection to civilians displaced by the ongoing violence across the country.


SSCEC have also entreated UN to use their offices to bring the disputing parties to a negotiating table and as well investigate cases of human rights violations committed by both parties.


“Introduce UN Security Council Resolution to strengthen UNMISS mandate and increase the number of peacekeepers in South Sudan,” they further demanded.


SSCEC added that ethnic polarisation is under way in South Sudan which is evident in the division among the country’s leadership, formation of political parties along ethnic line and also evident in division in the country army forces.


“If nothing is done sooner to mediate the present conflict situation between Kiir’s government and Dr. Riek Machar and other dissatisfied opposition parties, we are afraid that South Sudan will see a repeat of 1991 massacre in which thousands of civilians lost their lives and properties.”


Meanwhile, U.S army and Uganda Special Forces are already laying down strategies to annihilate Riek Machar and his rebels to restore peace and security in South Sudan.
