South Sudan Leader directs expulsion of Sudanese rebels


South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has directed all the country’s security organs and armed forces to ensure no hostile group resides or operates inside the young nation’s territories. “Yes, I would like to confirm that we have received directives from the commander in chief that as of the end of this month, no hostile group operating against the government of Sudan should continue to be in the territory of the republic of South Sudan,” a high ranking military intelligence officer said. The South Sudanese official was reacting to recent reports that the government had given an ultimatum for all armed and non-armed Sudanese dissidents to leave the country. “If there are political dissidents from Sudan, they will have to go to sort out their differences inside Sudanese territory or stay here as refugees in which case they will have to be disarmed and go to designated places as refugees or apply for political asylum,” he further stressed.
