January 12, 2018 (SSB) — Today 12 January 2018, I abandoned Riek Machar and his negative forces and joined the legitimate SPLM/SPLA-IO under the leadership of His Excellency General Taban Deng Gai, First Vice President, Chairman and Commander in Chief of the SPLM/SPLA (IO).

We have suffered for too long under visionless, confused and disorganized Riek Machar and his negative forces. Enough is enough! We cannot be fighting an endless bloody war that only killed and displaced our people in 1991, 2013 and 2016, the Nuer people in particular and South Sudanese in general, and destroyed their properties because Riek Machar wants to be President or First Vice President of the Republic of South Sudan.

This Country needs peace, stability, and security. This Country needs to reconcile and heal the wounds of this senseless war. We cannot fight for one man who only wants power on the expenses of the interest of the masses.

I am calling upon the People of Jekou County to abandon Riek Machar and his negative forces and join the legitimate leadership of the People Movement the SPLM/SPLA (IO) under the Leadership of General Taban Deng Gai to work for peace.

I am now in Pagak with my people.

Mr. James Kueth Chol

Commissioner of Jekou

Pagak, Maiwut State.

Republic of South Sudan
