The Republican Decree, Gurtong Trust has seen on Friday quotes the president as saying; “I Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit President of the Republic of South Sudan do hereby issue this Republican Order for granting of pardons for the forces that took up arms against the Republic of South Sudan.”

He mentioned the leaders of the different rebel groups as Maj. Gen. Gordon Kong, Maj. Gen. David Yau Yau, Maj. Gen. Bapiny Moyntuil Wicjang, Maj. Gen. Oyuog Ogot, Maj. Gen. Johnson Olwin and Maj. Gen. Munto Abdalla Munto.

Kiir said the pardon applies to all the officers and men operating under them. 
This is the second time the President is renewing the amnesty offer to the various rebel groups despite others like Yau Yau abrogating such pardons before and returned to the bush.
