The leadership of the peaceful, nonviolent youth movement, RCM has condemned the government of South Sudan for neglecting the SPLA wounded war veterans and calls for the removal of H.E President Salva Kiir Mayardit through peaceful protest. 

In a letter shared with Ramciel by the media representative, RCM’s newly elected president, Hon. Mabor Tut has called upon South Sudanese to hold their government accountable for neglecting war veterans through peaceful mass protests.

Mabor said, the Red Card Movement recognized the silent suffering of the veterans and acknowledged their services to the country. 

“We denounce the shameful neglect and mistreatment of our wounded war heroes and veterans by the government of Salva Kiir Mayardit. We recognize their service to the country, acknowledge their silent suffering for the  past 16 years of Salva Kiir’s misrule and the plight of their wives and children living in  abject poverty while oil, gold, and other resources are being sold far and wide yet they  see no dividend.”

“We assure our veterans and wounded heroes and the widows and children of our fallen heroes, that we stand united and in solidarity with them in voicing their concerns and demands.” he further stated, according to the letter. 

Mabor called upon South Sudanese to join their fellow brothers and cisterns wounded during the liberation struggle in the upcoming protest. 

“We call on the widows of our fallen heroes, the brave women, and mothers whose  husbands have paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country to come out and join hands  with our wounded heroes in demanding their rights and a fair share of what is owed  them.”

“We call on Salva Kiir Mayardit to immediately pay pensions and give support and  services for wounded veterans, their families, and the widows and children of our  fallen heroes.” 

Mabor said RCM will join the veterans in tomorrow’s protest in Dr. John Garang Mausoleum that is expected to roll out thousands of wounded war veterans for 2 days.
