S. Sudan rebel faction condemn threats to kill former army chief


May 14, 2018 (NAIROBI/JUBA) - A member of South Sudan United Front (SSUF), a rebel movement allied to ex-army chief, Gen. Paul Malong has condemned President Salva Kiir’s alleged threat to kill former foreign minister, Deng Alor and ex-diplomat Telar Riing Deng.

Kiir, Juba Laberti website reported, threatened to eliminate Malong, Telar and Alor for conspiring against his government and disclosing sensitive information on national security to Washington with the aim of toppling his regime.

The president reportedly made these threats during a meeting he held with the Jieng Council of Elders (JCE), an advisory body to him.

“The threat and the plan for their implementation is an act meant to retaliate on the frame of falsehood that the above named were conspiring against his government and that they were leaking sensitive information forgetting that his press secretary was the top conspirer who released the plan to murder Dr. Riek Machar in contravention of the peace agreement,” SSUF said in a statement.

In the statement, signed by Sunday de John, the opposition faction said the threats were not only directed to its leaders but the South Sudanese fraternity at large, citing the murder of a clergyman and his wife by unknown gunmen in the capital, Juba as acts from “expression of such irresponsible sentiments”.

“It is the same Kiir that regretted having not murdered the former detainees as a week ago; he is in actual sense destined to uncover his baleful plans tailored to annihilate the entire nation,” SSUF said.

Its statement added, “The SSUF/A condemns this act with all the terms possible and the international community is urged to take note of this adverse turn of events”.

Relations between Malong and Kiir deteriorated after the former was sacked from his post as army chief of staff in May 2017 and placed under house arrest for fear he would foment a rebellion.

The former army chief of staff was freed from house arrest in November following mediation led by the JCE. The agreement refrained him from going to his home-town of Aweil in the former Northern Bahr el-Ghazal State, but he was free to travel to any of the East African nations.

      No one is interested in killing the fugitive Malong. He is just scared and putting up worthless stories to evade being deported to SS or get an asylum in Kenya. Uhuru should just deport him to his friend the kiirminal. Intelligent reports suggest that he has paid close to 500,000$ as bribes to keep him in Nairobi. Should he be seen wandering like a settler in the bushes of Equatoria, we shall catc

      First of all this piece of trash is a mere propaganda. No one is planning to kill Paul Malongdit & others. But we are prepare to kill any traitor or a sellout who would want to bring the evil white Americans, English people, their evil juus, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, their Arabs of Arabia & even of their shifty Abeshas criminals into our country>>>>

        Dear Kuch,

        Can you construct your comment in one comment or at most two comments, otherwise you need to go back to school so that you can summary all your points/views in only one comment. You are over repeating your self every single comment you make/made and every day.
        We have time NOT to read a book full of nonsense.

      Government of South Sudan is becoming the most useless day by day.
      5 million was given to Malong to kill Riak
      Kiir said he made a mistake of sparing life of G-10 and Riak
      Now plotting to kill Malong.

      Now Kiir and elites are proving that Dr. Mauwen is right (All of them are not physically and mentally fit to be in the office)

      Unnecessary war is the last thing for many particularly Aweil people and Gen. Malong, a patriotic and peaceful man who for decades had worked hard to protect and keep Aweil united while maintaining peace with neighbors, is not different. He hasn’t thrown a stone to anyone since his dismissal, yet warmongers and idlers inside rotten regime are not sleeping to cook up one lie after other.

      We’re aware of backstabbing, ongoing purging and unjustified killing of Dinka Malual and friends. Just recently a group of Aweil SPLA officers were summarily stopped, intimidated and are currently taken to unknown location by Kiir-Akol-Kuol (KAK) personal security, aka national security.

      They are pushing harder each day but lest they know they are on their last leg, the warmongers may not appreciate uncalled division they started. You are not wrong, even an overloaded donkey at a point, can raise a foot to send a message there are limits.
