Nov. 25, 2016, The leadership would like to clarify the following position:
1- Dr. Riek continues to lead the movement as the C in C. Presently, the chairman is in South Africa for operational business.
2- There is no current or existing travel restrictions from regional countries as speculated by Juba. Ethiopia have flat out despised the liars by Taban Deng Gai. Kindly go through the Offical statement of the Ethiopian government on the latest incident.
4- The leadership of SPLM IO continues to engage with international community, regional body and friends of IO for lasting peaceful solution to the current crisis.
Finally, IO would like to take this opportunity to register appreciation to supporters and friends of IO across the globe. Our unity is our strength. Together we are stronger.
Viva SPLM IO
Viva Dr Riek
