NAS high-level delegation visits front-line troops

[NAS Info] A high-level delegation comprising of NAS political and military leadership led by Gen. Yien Mathew, army spokesman, paid a routine visit to NAS controlled areas in South Sudan a few days ago.

As part of NAS’ continuous efforts to brief field commanders and freedom fighters about the current political developments in the country, the visit also coincided with an invitation by Gen. Kenyi Luboron, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Training and the Sector Commander of Greater Equatoria.

Before their departure, the delegation met and discussed with NAS Chairman and Commander-in-Chief Gen. Thomas Cirilo Swaka. Out of the fruitful meeting, a set of objectives were drawn among which were the need to inform and raise political awareness among the populace with regards to recent political and military developments in the country.

During the visit that lasted close to 2 weeks, the head of the delegation Gen. Yien Mathew discussed and explained issues including the recent alliance with other opposition parties that was signed in The Hague, and NAS’ political and diplomatic efforts to bring about a just and lasting peace in the country.

“There is no doubt from what I have seen and witnessed that NAS is not only leading by example, but NAS is slowly but surely putting into place what has never been thought possible. From an organised army to distinguished civil-military relations, NAS is what South Sudan needs. We mean it when we say we shall restore the unity, dignity and freedom of our people”

Gen. Yien paid tribute to the freedom fighters and called on them to adhere to the vision and objectives of the people’s struggle. He praised them for their heroic, patriotic and revolutionary role in the protection of innocent civilians against the constant harassment by Kiir’s militia aka Mathiang Anyor, and their (NAS troops’) distinguished and exemplary relations with the communities in the areas under NAS control.

“There is no doubt from what I have seen and witnessed that NAS is not only leading by example, but NAS is slowly but surely putting into place what has never been thought possible. From an organised army to distinguished civil-military relations, NAS is what South Sudan needs. We mean it when we say we shall restore the unity, dignity and freedom of our people,” said one member of the delegation.
