South Sudan People’s Movement Denies Involvement in Sudanese Conflict
In response to recent allegations made by Sudanese-based media platform Alzool T.V., the South Sudan People’s Movement/Army (SSPM/A) has issued a press release denying any involvement in the ongoing Sudanese crisis.
The press release, issued by Cde, Eng. Mahafis Mayang Hoth, the SSPA Official Spokesman, categorically refutes the claims made and calls for substantial evidence to support these allegations.
The allegations surfaced on social media platforms, accusing the leader of the South Sudan People’s Movement/Army of having forces fighting alongside the Sudan Rapid Support Forces.
Images shared by Alzool T.V. purported to show South Sudanese individuals in the uniform of the Sudan Rapid Support Forces, further fueling the allegations.
However, the SSPM/A strongly denies the participation of its forces in the Sudan crisis. According to the press release, the SSPA forces are stationed on the South Sudan-Sudan border in Upper Nile and Unity States, located far away from the epicenter of the military confrontations in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital.
Moreover, the SSPM/A highlighted the difficulties in verifying the authenticity of the images shared by Alzool T.V., as the faces of the individuals depicted could not be recognized or authenticated.
In light of these allegations, the SSPM/A has urged Alzool T.V. to provide concrete evidence demonstrating the involvement of the SSPM/A in the Sudanese conflict. They have emphasized the importance of transparency and substantiated claims to avoid misinformation that can further escalate tensions.
With this press release, the SSPM/A aims to address and dismiss the allegations, reaffirming their commitment to peace and stability in South Sudan. They maintain that their forces remain stationed along the South Sudan-Sudan border, focused on ensuring security in their designated area.
As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how the Sudanese-based media outlet will respond to the SSPM/A’s call for substantial evidence and whether further investigations will be conducted to address the allegations at hand.
