Thousands of SPLM-IO Supporters Stage Huge Rally Welcoming Advance Team in Pagak, IO HQ


PAGAK – Tens of thousands of SPLM – IO supporters in Pagak gave General Taban Deng Gai and his team a rock-star reception, cheering and dancing as the team were landing in Pagak, SPLM – IO Head Quarter.

The rally is one of the biggest meetings of Pro-Democracy enthusiasts in the country’s recent past two years of civil war.

“People say change must come to South Sudan and the only way out is for the regime change.”

They chat, “Salva Kiir must go for the country to reclaim it dignity.”


We have to be very powerful and strong in the parliament and military and so, don’t try to talk about other solutions, one of the member in the crowd said.

That such a huge gathering could not take place in Juba where security is always concern to the civilians.


Three days ago Opposition Leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny recalled back all the senior Advance Team leaders of (SPLM-IO ) to come back to Pagak for consultation with the top leadership over the outstanding issues in the implementation of the peace agreement signed in August 2015 by warring parties in the country.
