The first Vice President and SPLM-IO leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny has accused peace partners for brokering and aiding his over throw from the armed forces by bribing his generals. Machar is currently being guarded by the same peace partners in Juba following a witch hunt by his generals desperately looking for him.
In an address to journalists at the political Bureau last week on Wednesday, Machar pointed out that the “peace spoilers” are being sponsored by peace partners to escalate violence hence derailing the implementation of the Revitalized peace agreement.
Machar further hinted that “It is regrettable that the declaration was engineered and facilitated by peace spoilers who previously sponsored attacks on Turu cantonment site in Maiwut County, Liengkiji cantonment site in Maban County in upper Nile State, Morta training centre in Kajo Keji County, in Central Equatoria, the attacks on SPLA(IO) in Western Bahr Al-Ghazal and Western Equatoria States. The Political Bureau, therefore, condemns these grave violations in the strongest terms possible” according to Dr. Riek Machar.
With history repeating itself, in 2016, Machar was ousted by the so called “peace spoilers” through Taban Deng Gai the chief negotiator at the time. Dr. Riek Machar strongly believes that the recent insurgencies are orchestrated by the sponsorship of peace partners to destabilize the region and frustrate the efforts levied on the implementation of the revitalized agreement so far..
