November 5, 2018 (JUBA) - The South Sudanese embassy in Kenya Monday dismissed rumours about the defection of one of its diplomats to a rebel group led by General Paul Malong Awan.

The diplomatic mission in Nairobi was reacting to a statement circulating Sunday in the social media announcing the defection of Minister Plenipotentiary Kur Garang Deng to the South Sudan United Front/Army (SSUF/A) of Gen Malong who is based in Kenya too.

Deng in his alleged statement of defection denounced the bad leadership, tribalism, lack of governance, killing of civilians and corruption. Also, in the personal statement appeared the stamp of the embassy but it was obviously photocopied from another document.

"We would like to unequivocally state that this document is not genuine and is aimed at defaming and maligning the character and name of Mr Kur Garang Deng and the Embassy in an attempt to create obstacles in his dispensation of duties at the mission," said a statement released on Monday.

The embassy further denounced the "smear campaign" against its diplomat and pointed out that the stamp has been copied and pasted onto the document and also the document bears no signature.

Kenya hosts thousands of South Sudanese and over 115,000 refugees from South Sudan.

Also, several opposition leaders including SSUF leader Malong.

The former army chief of staff sought to join the IGAD brokered peace process but his request was declined by the regional body.

Malong accuses his old friend President Salva Kiir of objecting to his participation while other sources say the IGAD did not want to have an opposition leader who is under international sanctions.

    It could be true since no one shows up from Kenya government to help to celebrate the peace ceremony. Kenya government has up to something we don’t knows yet.

      Reuben,
      You losers often like to ’post on things’ that you idiots don’t exactly know. What did Kenya actually did differently than Uganda? None, access to port of Mombasa is the what Kenya claim to have over our country & our people. And our arms & munitions like before our independence in 2011, where shipped in through through port of Mombasa. We know all these.>>>

        And should some idiots in Kenya let their balls carry them away, then they are going to be occupied and bombed by us anyway. The US, the UK, their UN, their evil juus (so-called israel), their NGOs, their gulf Arab states financiers & some of their creepy allies in between would want to use our country and country as the chess game or football>>>>

          Or blackmails or bargaining cards/chips to play games with our country & our people. Who is that "Kur Garang Deng" if he is not just a piece of rubbish living in Kenya and let his name being taken & use by some criminals. My lowly informed South Sudanese fools, be very very careful fellows. Our country & our people are coveted by our enemies we don’t consider them anyone>>>
