REMNASA is a militant rebel group that views its launch during January 2015 as the start of the second liberation struggle to overthrow the leadership of South Sudan’s president, Salvatore Kiir. The group refers to bad governance, failed leadership and failure to protect the people of South Sudan as reasons that triggered the formation of the group. The group has also distanced itself from the armed opposition group (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement -SPLM-IO/SPLM-N) led by Rieck Machar. REMNASA is reportedly comprised of former military officers and soldiers of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM). Centre of OperationsREMNASA is present in the Western Equatoria state of South Sudan:

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
