Officials told Chimpreports that Sule is being investigated for acts related to insurrection.

However, Deng described the arrest as “a crime against individual freedom of free movement.”

He added: “This continue unacceptable behaviours of the Kiir regime will only deepen and complicates the crisis more. Kiir and his militias are not interest in peace. They just want to continue sucking the blood of South Sudanese.”

The government in Juba is trying to crash a rebellion led by former Vice President Riek Machar that has led to the death of thousands of people and destruction of property worth millions of shillings.

“We call upon the IGAD to intervene and make sure this process is inclusive, representative and transparent and not to be undermined by Kiir and his cohorts in Juba. I am urging the conferees to engage in genuine and constructive dialogue to arrive at a comprehensive and peaceful political settlement to the ongoing crisis,” said Deng.

President Kiir is expected in Ethiopia this weekend where he will meet Machar for another round of talks to find a peaceful, political and home-grown solution to the crisis in South Sudan.

“As the leadership of the National Youth Union, we will continue to call for inclusive process which involves all the stakeholders and not excluding anyone.”
