NAS 2021 Message: “…be courageous and resolute to restore our dignity”
The Chairman and C-in-C of the National Salvation Front (NAS) Gen Thomas Cirillo is encouraging the people of South Sudan in the year 2021 to be courageous and resolute in the revolutionary strive to reclaim and restore the rights, freedom, and dignity that have been undermined by Salva Kiir’s regime in Juba.
No amount of threats, intimidation, and violence will ever defeat the courage and resolve of the people
“My Christmas and New Year’s message to you this year is that of Courage and Resolve…..No amount of threats, intimidation, and violence will ever defeat the courage and resolve of the people,” read the statement in part.
“The regime and elites in Juba have looted the resources of the country while the people of South Sudan continue to languish in abject poverty with no basic services such as clean water, health services, food and education for their children. The time for you, the people of South Sudan to say enough is enough, is now.
“You need to take your destiny into your own hands. The time has come for you to be courageous and resolute to reclaim your rights of freedom and restore your dignity”
Gen Thomas Cirillo went on to sympathize and acknowledge the bravery and nationalism of those who showed courage in openly telling the regime to their face that they are betrayed the people; that Salva Kiir and Riek Machar are part of the root causes; and that South Sudan is better of without either of them.
“NAS has heard the voices of the people who, despite the threats to their lives, have openly and frankly told the regime that it has failed the people of South Sudan and therefore it must go. I urge all of you to be courageous and continue to use all forums including those set by the regime to voice your opinions and demand your rights.”
“No amount of threats, intimidation, and violence will ever defeat the courage and resolve of the people.”
We wish you all a Courageous and Resolute, Happy New year 2021!
