“I am telling you this because I do not want similar incident that occurred in Maridi town of Western Equatoria last week whereby a soldier shot dead a civilian with whom they were arguing over the federalism issue,” Manyok said, while delivery his speech at Wau stadium during the anniversary of marking South Sudan Independence.

“We do not want this to happen here. Leave the civilians to discuss it alone without your participation because your duties are not associated with politics. You are military men…,” said the General.

Those who talk about the federalist governing system, he continued, should wait for the nation to restore peace back first, he said. In his remarks, Maj.Gen Manyok also criticized the international community for naming south Sudan as the most fragile state in the world, while knowing that the nation is only three years old as an independent state.

“If it is a matter of the crises which are ongoing in South Sudan, why not include Syria and other countries in the world which are sharing the same experiences as the newly Republic of South Sudan,” he said.

Maj. Gen. Manyok also decried social media reports which described South Sudan’s ruling SPLM party and SPLA, as a curse to the people of the country.
