Eastern Equatoria – The Eastern Equatoria based rebellion, now known as South Sudan Federal Democratic Party with its army wing as South Sudan Armed Force, has divulge the rebellion’s fighting objectives.
According to the group, the objectives which are entirely similar to the main armed opposition’s objectives, are to:
- Make South Sudan a federal democratic country on the basis of equality, rule of law, democratic system of governance
- Making South Sudan a multi-political party Country with all the parties having equal rights and opportunities in the governance of the Country, especially with equal chance of winning public offices position during elections
- Accused Kirr’s of incompetency and lack of vision to lead the Country demanding that he either steps down or get overthrown
- Transformation of the Country to its historical vision of freedom, democracy, rule of law among others.
It’s too early to state whether there maybe an alliance by the group with the main opposition group, The SPLM in Opposition since the objectives are more or less the same.
Despite the signed peace agreement in the Country, rebellions are abruptly arising almost from every corner, all pointing guns agains the goverment of President Salva Kir. One of those rebellion is in Upper Nile State fighting for the reversal of the 28 state. Another is in Western Equatoria fighting for resistance of the goverment and this latest one now in Eastern Equatoria with fighting objective highlighted above.
