After the collapse of the peace agreement, war is raging in South Sudan. It is intensifying.
We are only defending ourselves when we were attacked in Juba. We didn’t start this war
e are waging a war of resistance against the regime for our own survival. We also want resolution of the war
I am free to return in South Sudan whenever I can. No one can stop me. They don’t control me.
Transitional govt of national unity needs to be formed again. Juba govt is no longer implementing original deal
