over power and wealth, saying the country is in chaos. The community leader
blamed the current government for defections of Equatoria sons, while
condemning military campaign in the Equatoria region by the government.
" We continuously receives credible reports of government forces engaging
in both targeted murder of civilians and looting of properties", reads
parts of a press release.
Voni accused President Kiir’s faction of opposing peace, saying the recent
move to dishonour the peace agreement is the replacement of Riek Machar
with Taban Deng Gai as First Vice President.
The community leader demanded the formation of a broad-based coalition
government for peace-building to succeed in South Sudan. He also called
upon the UN Security Council to support the development of a broad-based
political coalition as the most effective means to achieving stability and
sustainable peace-building in South Sudan.

embargo on South Sudan to stem the flow of weapons.
