Rebels: We Don’t Get Arms From Eritrea

viagra order geneva; font-size: small;”>Eritrea, treat not long ago, troche also clarified in a statement that it was not funding South Sudan rebels.

“On the other hand, the purveyors of lies and “crises incubation” routinely resort to manufacturing outrageous lies against Eritrea principally in order to divert attention from and conceal their subversive acts described above,” said a statement released by the ministry of Foreign Affairs.

To this end, they have accused the Government of Eritrea, at times, for “supporting the Republic of Sudan in the battles at Higlig” and at other times “for supporting the Yaw-Yaw”.

Today they are peddling a preposterous lie accusing the Government of Eritrea “for supporting Machar”.


Likewise, the military spokesperson of South Sudan rebels confirms that they are not getting any military aid from the said country.

Here is the Rebel statement:

The SPLA/ M in Opposition would like to put records straight following reports published by Sudan Tribune on 20-3-2014 alleging that our Resistance Movement led by Dr. Riek Machar has been receiving military support from the Eritrean Government.

These unfounded allegations originated from Mr. John Prendergast upon addressing the United States Congress subcommittee on Africa back in February 2014.

These allegations are false and meant to raise eyebrows and cause unnecessary suspicion among friendly countries supportive to our quest for democratic reforms in South Sudan.

It is regrettable that Mr. John whom our movement holds in high esteem could present baseless allegations to a reputable committee based on concerns raised by desperate Eritreans Businessmen who had lost everything following recurrent clashes in Jonglei State.

By making wild allegations, Mr. Prendergast probably wanted to get media attention at a time that the country is in turmoil whereas Eritrean’s Businessmen allegations that they might have been targeted probably because their country is supporting our movement was meant to generate sympathetic feelings and the possibility of getting compensated for the losses they had incurred.

Brig. Gen. Lul Ruai Koang,

Military Spokesperson for SPLM/SPLA in Opposition
