August 23rd, 2018. Juba RoSS: The regime of Salva Kiir Mayerdit, accustomed to do and undo as it pleases announced that it has released 21 Political prisoners but failed to reveal their names or where these political prisoners were allowed to go. Prominent among the political prisoners include Peter Biar, Samuel Dong, James Gadet, Kerbion Wol, Aggrey Idri and many more
Many of these prisoners are those opposed to the atrocities carried out by the tribal regime of the GCE lead by Salva kiir Mayerdit.
South Sudan liberty news calls on Salva Kiir to show good faith if any left in him to reveals not only the names of these detainees he claims to have let free but should show them on public TV then allows them freedom of movements so they can go to their families from who they have been unnecessarily deprived all these times some as long as years.
We reached out to some family members of the prisoners and they speak in fear of reprisals or harm being done to their loved one should they publicly speak and they report to SSLN that they have no knowledge of where their loved ones are as Kiir makes a false claim to fool the international communities and south Sudanese at large. They urge Kiir to show he is serious about peace and show tangible evidence by returning the freedoms of their loved ones.
