SPLM/A Canada Office’s Press Release on Gen. Lul Defection to President Kiir’s regime

For Immediate Release


February 18th, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — The SPLM/SPLA office in Canada would like to take this opportunity to clarify some misinformation in the light of comrade Gen. Lul Ruai Koang’s defection to the Government of South Sudan under Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit as of 18th of February 2015.

In this regard, the people of South Sudan and especially the supporters of the SPLM/SPLA –Resistance Movement and the gallant forces of the Freedom Fighters under the able leader Dr. Riek Machar ought to know nothing but truth.

Therefore, it’s unfortunate to the public that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrendered to the government of Salva Kiir and did not form alleged new Armed Group. The claim that Mr. Lul has formed a new Armed Group was a purge to confuse the general public about Gen. Lul Ruai’s surrender to the genocidal government that has killed 20, 000 innocent Nuer civilians in cold blood.

At the time of writing this press release, our SPLM/SPLA office in Nairobi, Kenya has confirmed that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has made the pronouncement of his defection to the government in a public briefing organized by the Government of South Sudan’s Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya.

While in the briefing, comrade Lul Ruai himself was accompanied by none other than Mr. Paul Malong Awan, the current Chief of General Staff in the Government of South Sudan, Mrs. Rachel Nyadak Paul, Deputy of Minister of Information and broadcasting in the Government of South Sudan, Gen. Philip Aguer Panyang, current Military spokesman in the government of South Sudan, Mr. Ghai Riam, former of Minister of Cabinet Affairs in Jonglei State and still with the government and Mr. Paul Bol who is also a staunch supporters of Salva Kiir Mayardit’s genocidal.

Besides, the people of South Sudan should also ascertain Gen. Lul Ruai Koang’s cowardice surrender to the genocidal government of South Sudan under along these lines in his press release:

  1. Cognizant that the ongoing civil war caused by December 15th, coup attempt has resulted to huge human losses of lives and properties;”
  2. Mindful that Dr. Riek is soliciting support from the Government of the Republic of Sudan in order to continue to destabilizing the country and
  3. Concerned that Dr. Riek Machar continues to obstruct peace by presenting impossible demands which in turn make it difficult to achieve peace in short time.”

These statements and circumstance of which Lul Ruai made his pronouncement are serious indications and proved that comrade Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrender to the same ruthless regime that he once rightful criticized of being genocidal and authoritarian to the core.

In closing, we would like to urges our people to remind calm and inform our supporters that Gen. Lul Ruai Koang has surrendered to President Salva Kiir’s genocidal regime alone.

And above all else, your movement, the SPLM/SPLA will never betray people’s cause on short change. We are committed and determined to bring lasting peace to South Sudan by whatever mean necessary.

To bring this lasting peace to realization, the SPLM/A shall ensure that the root cause to the conflict is addresses amicably and culture of impunity completely discarded once and for all.

Victory is certain and we are committed to stay the course!

The truth is that, all SPLA SPLM IO are going to come to Juba sooner than later this is why some members of the rebels have already show up in last month and they are now claiming payroll check to be given to them.The South Sudan’s government is going to have big government which mean the army will probably driven resources up as you have hear last week more than 5000 formers rebels of David Yau Yau have finally integrated in to National army SPLA and guess how many rebels will come with former vice president Dr. Riek Machar Teny? This is absolutely too much spending resources in the army while, the domestic are left with nothing for them to make development in the communities.

The second truth, the Lou Nuers communities members and the Nuers Bul communities, they were in process of rejecting rebels of former vice president but luckily the peace agreement in Tanzania maybe will help rebels leader otherwise, you might expected too many defections soon.

The third truly, the former SPLA IO spoke-man is not alone, some generals were already make themselves MI without payroll but they are there with rebels leader for their own business which I do not know. In addition to that, the Lou Nuer people seem to have their members serving a big positions in South Sudan’s government and that make it harder for them to stick with the former vice president Dr. Riek Machar from Leer communities and also Leer county while, their Sons are left working in the government, this is another truth too. Please keep singing about the former SPLA IO spoke-man Br, general Lul Koang but all these are coming back sooner

Let him go to Kiir if he think kiir regime will last for six month

Mawien Magol February 18, 2015 at 10:18 pm

Hi, Mr. Goweng Torbaar. I don’t buy it. You are talking about six months, how many months from 15/12/2013? Please keep singing about winning military war but that notion may not work brother

Gatluak Gatkuoth February 18, 2015 at 10:44 pm

Goweng Torbaar, gen Lul defection to Government is welcome warmly, why do you inciting war to be continuous we want peace to come to south sudan Dr Riek is fighting for his position and therefore there is no need for us to support him when he is killing innocent civilian for nothing all Nuer civilian are suffering in the swamp areas they are dying of diseases and starvation.and yet Dr Riek with other fool from Nuer are resisted to sign peace deal they ignored suffering of civilian.

Gatluak Gatkuoth, in what sense is Dr. Riek fighting for VP position? Let us be objective when discussing national issues, and not resort to distorting facts. The defection of Lul Ruai Koang will not stop the war, neither will it save Salva Kiir’s regime from collapsing. I know when the going gets tough few people will endure the difficulties and this is exactly what is happening to a few sellout Nuers who are bribe with oil money. Don’t get me wrong though, the regime’s money will not last long since the oil is not producing at its full capacity and beside the prices have dropped. Pray for peace otherwise you the Nuer dollar seekers will be broke soon.

We would like to assure the entire public of south sudan in general but specifically the lovers of white army and on behave of white army youth forum worldd wide that there is no suprise on defection of so,called Lul Ruai because he had never been led forces to the battle since the rebellion kickoff, I believe that the entire community of my relative Lou Nuer would not even consider his move because the move is a brutality move made by somebody who had never been in the bush, anyway let Lul rest in peace in the hotel with so called Malong and the rest and we still moving forward till we topple down that brutal minded regime of Salva Kiir.

Gatluak Goanar February 19, 2015 at 6:15 am

I strongly believe that Lul’s defection may not affect the Movement(SPLM/A-IO) as he simply announced it in the hotel where he was bribed by Dinka agents and he simply decided to betray his own people, Nuer, whom Kiir has massacred. I know that he has no suppot from the ground(Lou-Nuer Community), even those who seem to support him in the websites are siple food lovers from the cities who did not even fire one bullet in the war with Dinka dominated regime. Idiots, you deserve death.
