Awan fell unwell last week, sparking tension and uncertainty as he was flown out of the country unconsciousness.

Video footages played on the state-owned SSBC on Saturday showed the senior army officer talking about his illness, particularly how it all started. He said his busy work schedules did not allow him to detect that he had developed Malaria, which caused the rise in blood sugar level but added that it was now under control.

Awan said he regained his health on Tuesday and was ready to resume his duties.

He thanked the general public, army and the president for sympathy and solidarity support extended to him while in hospital, saying he and his family were grateful.

The top military officer told reporters on arrival at Juba airport that he was suffering from malaria, diabetes and fatigue.

“Thank God I was diagnosed and treated, and I have also been given a medication, that’s why I returned back to the country, “he said.

      Ahaha--- very funny Ajongtar, let his grave remain open as he will not survive the next incoming attempt, Gat-Nyakek on the move, that would be one of the two:
      1 radiation in any form/mode
      2 bribed bodyguards or those closed to him.
      Let wait for the good news Inshallah.

    Dear All

    Whatsoever suffering you might have experienced during his army chieftain-ship is due to your wrong direction taken.However,constitutional mandates gives him right to ruthlessly react to your activities.Furthermore,you can’t wish you foe(s) death otherwise you,the wisher(s) navigate death.
