In a military parade conducted at Gerintii military headquarters in Wau, Alier said any army officer who misbehaves will be dealt with.

“Today, I have paraded you to listen to the update instructions from your headquarters in Juba, we have been told not to tolerate any tolerance, we should not ignore Malong’s threats to the country, we have to remain on alert,” said the 5th infantry division commander.

“This morning marks our operation launch within and outside the town to counter any threat whether within you here or coming from the bush because we should not allow what happened in Juba to repeat itself [here],” he added in reference the December 2013 outbreak of fighting between rival soldiers within the national army.

The senior military official said a joint operation team comprising of members of the country’s national security and other special forces would be moving together in town to avert any subversive activities.

The Juba government claims to be in possession of audio recordings in which the former army chief on 28 December, allegedly order military attacks in various parts of the war-torn nation, including Wau.

However, Awan, who is currently in Nairobi, Kenya, denied all the accusations.

    Salva Kiir and cycle think they did everything possible to control the country and move it forwards but in reality every step they do is a step backwards. Majur Alier wouldn’t escape if war happens.

    Like I have been saying all along, ANY AGGRIEVED South Sudanese is FREE to rebel against Kiir, a man, who made the currency to collapse from its mighty value of 1$ = 2.xxx SSP to 1$ = 195 SSP. Kiir has been using the meagre resources of the country to buy arms through Uganda to wage war! Malong couldn’t turn against Kiir today if Kiir was a statesman!
