Tons of of Kenyan and South Sudanese nationals on Thursday. October 11/2018, staged a peaceable protest within the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, requesting the Kenyan authorities to freeze belongings of South Sudanese leaders taking advantage of the battle and to sanction Kenyan banks facilitating the looting of funds.

That is the primary time ever that any of the neighboring nations, particularly Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia, that are concerned with the present nationwide warfare and leaders in South Sudan, that such a public demonstration has been allowed.

The protest follows the general public airing of a documentary, ‘The Profiteers’ which depicts key people and establishments in South Sudan and neighbouring Kenya and Uganda which might be benefiting from the battle in South Sudan whereas south Sudanese proceed to bear the brunt of the struggle.

Based on the report, a number of South Sudanese leaders, together with President Salva Kiir, his nemesis, Riek Machar, former Military Chief of Employees, Paul Malong, have been named to have stashed away large sums of cash in Kenyan banks. This prompted a peaceable protest by Kenyan civil society organisations.

Boniface Mwangi, a famend Kenyan socio-political rights activist and organiser of the protest informed Radio Tamazuj that they delivered petitions to the Kenyan parliament and ministry of overseas affairs demanding action against named people and establishments.

“We are protesting against Paul Malong and Salva Kiir and other generals stealing money from South Sudan and using Kenyan banks to launder the money. So the money doesn’t come from clean sources. They are looting the country and bringing the money to Kenya and Uganda, buying very palatial homes, living very lavish lifestyles as ordinary south Sudanese citizens die,” he stated.

Mwangi added, “We are asking our Kenyan government to freeze their assets and evacuate the money back to South Sudan. We must stop the banks that are involved in money laundering and looting South Sudan because as long as they can loot, the war will never stop, as long as they benefit from the conflict and the civil war, South Sudanese will continue to suffer as these ‘leaders’ live a good life in Kenya.”

The activist additional stated the documentary offered proof of precise financial institution transactions and possession of high-end properties in Kenya and Uganda.

“We understand how much money they earn as monthly salaries and you can see there is a stark difference between the two. They earn very little but live like they earn a billion dollars. So you can see clearly there is illegally acquired wealth,” he added.

Mwangi additionally stated as a lot as South Sudanese are struggling the results of the struggle, Kenya is bearing its personal share of destructive results.

“It is illegally acquired money, and it’s not only destroying South Sudan, it’s destroying this country as a financial hub and making it a center for criminal activities. And some of those people who are stealing money are under UN Security Council sanctions list, so Kenyan banks should not be trading with war criminals,” he stated.

South Sudanese dwelling in Nairobi spearheaded by the Ana Taban Initiative, a gaggle of South Sudanese youth advocating for peace additionally joined within the protests in addition to different South Sudanese civil society organisations based mostly in Nairobi.

Ana Taban initiative coordinator, Manasseh Mathiang urged South Sudanese to grab the chance and converse against vices occurring within the nation.

“South Sudan is our country. Until the time when we decide to stand up for our rights, stand up for what we believe in we will never fix this country. And if a few individuals are enjoying from our blood we need that to stop. We need to love our country enough to stand when the time is right for us to stand,” he inspired the protesters.

Mathiang stated the protest in Nairobi is a component of a collection of peaceable protests that may happen throughout the area denouncing the beneficiaries of the South Sudan battle.

As Socrates as soon as stated, “All Wars Are About Money,” certainly, as uncovered by many activists, the leaders of South Sudan, particularly, President Salva Kiir and household, former vice-president-now insurgent leader-soon-to-be-again vice chairman, Dr. Riek Machar, are allegedly ‘US Greenback billionaires,” blood cash looted from the poor and struggling residents.

A video exhibited by the Protest Organizers exhibits the son of ex-chief of employees, Paul Malong, rolling on hundreds of thousands of US greenback payments and boasting as ‘the youngest African BILLIONAIRE,’ blood monies allegedly stolen by his father, former chief of staff-turned-rebel, Gen. Paul Malong, who’s himself seemingly a billionaire.

While Gen. Malong is one of these sanctioned, he nonetheless freely flies out and in of Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and the Sudan with none of these nations arresting him.

Apparently, it was additionally revealed how the Machar’s SPLM/O-IO that’s supposedly preventing the Kiir regime is deeply concerned in stealing pure assets in South Sudan. The so-called SPLM/O-IO Governor Matata of the border state of Yei, is deeply concerned in illegally slicing uncommon and costly wooden and looting different assets from South Sudan and smuggling these by means of Uganda to worldwide sellers.

Very uncommon and costly wooden is being stolen by these insurgent teams. This can be a wealthy man’s conflict on the expense of the poor South Sudanese blood.

This can be a important second for all residents to hitch these activists in Kenya and to talk out forcefully concerning the doubtful and felony collusion between the criminals/leaders in South South Sudan and their co-conspirators in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia, to not overlook our former rulers, Arab North Sudan.

Most poignantly, the famed Ugandan professor Mahmood Mamdani declared that the just lately signed peace settlement between Kiir and Machar and Opposition teams, that, “South Sudan is on its way to becoming an informal protectorate of Sudan and Uganda. By formally acknowledging them as ‘guarantors,’ the agreement recognizes their strategic role in determining the future of South Sudan: Ugandan troops are physically present to support Kiir’s faction, and Sudan provides critical support to opposition groups, including those led by Machar.”

Prof. Mamdani strenuously believes that the peace deal signed on September 12 is an settlement between Presidents Omar al-Bashir of Sudan and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda — who’re the guarantors of the settlement.

The settlement, he argues, acknowledges their strategic position in figuring out the longer term of South Sudan: Ugandan troops are bodily current to help Kiir’s faction, and Arab Sudan supplies important help to opposition teams, together with these led by Machar,”

Additional, “Uganda is hoping to play a leading role in training the South Sudan army under the military co-operation, while Sudan has leverage to resuscitate the oil sector and provide troops to protect the installations. South Sudan is also Sudan’s biggest market in the region.”

Sadly, an estimated 400,000 South Sudan have been killed because the outbreak of the Dinka Kiir versus Nuer Machar precipitated ‘civil war’ from 2013 to 2016, and now in 2018, there are two and half million South Sudanese refugees in these neighboring nations. END
