Nov 29, 2015 (Nyamilepedia) — Reports from the ground in Magwi County, Eastern Equatoria State reveals that the South Sudan’s Chief of General staff, Gen. Paul Malong Awan has deployed to the Ma’di corridor, Magwi county, a troop of more than three battalions of SPLA, Juba.

The troops is composed mainly of irregular forces believed to be a section of Dinka Bahr el Ghazal, the home state of Malong and President Kiir.

The notorious militias, also known as the Presidential guards, which carry the worst track records of human rights abuse in the young nation topped of the regiments.

The absence of Equatorian among the heavily deployed SPLA-Juba, mainly from Dinka ethnic groups, who has had a very poor relations with the Madi people, are dispatched to the villages of  Moli, Pageri and Opari, Magwi County, EES, raising serious concerns and many critical unanswered questions.

This in itself sets up a volcanic situation that can explode at any time soon. Many critics believe it is another terrible miscalculations from Malong and Kiir.

From a reliable source, Paul Malong brought some of these soldiers directly from Bahr el Ghazal and topped up their numbers with the presidential guards unit, which were directly involved in igniting what is now known as the Black December 2013.

The most alarming news is the explicit instructions that Paul Malong gave to this tribal Militia as they were dispatched to the Ma’di coridor.

South Sudan Liberty news (SSLN, sadly learned that Paul Malong ordered and instructed the militias deployed in Ma’di corridor to “kill any thing moving even Chickens”.

As previously reported this was named “Operation Wipe Out “meant to teach a lesson to the rest of Greater Equatoria which has been boiling in dissatisfaction and now believed to be picking up arms in every corridor of the region.

Our informant within the rank of South Sudan’s SPLA, said the news has drawn anger and disbelieve among Equatorian Generals in the ranks of the SPLA and they were deeply disturbed.

It is their believes that the deployment order for the operation “wipe out” if  not withheld will prompt huge defections from the government side to the rebels, this then will return the country to all out civil war.

Our local sources within the army said when the news was dispatched to spiritual leaders in Juba to include Bishop Paride Taban who then hurriedly went to Pageri to defuse the situations between the warring parties.

The Bishop expressed urgent need to preach peace in order to deescalate the volatile situation from exploding.

The source stated that the retired Bishop, who has good relations with the president Kiir, urged the Commanders in Charge of the regiment in Magwi County to protect civilians while he urges the residents to work for peace not war.

However, observers believe his message has missed its objective since the civilians are not armed and have no affiliation to any rebel groups to enforce peace.

It is believed that had it not been for the involvements of Spiritual leaders in Juba to include the urging of Emiratus Bishop Paride Taban, Ethnic Cleansing and genocide could have taken place in the Ma’di Corridor by now as the soldiers pose ready to strike. T

his news site has learned the situation is still tense as phone lines were jammed to limit any flow of information.

By all indications, Magwi County is still at a volatile stand off, reportedly a high risk for genocide given the presidential guards are the very same one that have been accused of ethnic cleansing of the Nuer ethnic group in Juba.

These unit are heard communicating among themselves even as they are deployed in Magwi County only in Dinka language only to just drive home the point that these is a tribal deployment rather than one with national interest.

Ma’di community calls upon IGAD-Plus to be watchful and urge Kiir to avoid other miscalculations by deploying his kins in volatile regions that is already angered by displacements and their land occupations by the Dinka tribemen, who claim the land and refused to be called IDP.

Paul Malong must be held accountable for any killings of civilians in Magwi County. It should be recalled that, In Yambio, he ordered his soldiers to shoot to Kill.

Paul Malong should resign for indoctrinating his soldiers to kill civilians instead of upholding their constitutional mandate to protect those they took oaths to serve not to kill.

    “Malignant Paul Malong”

  • A Country with confused leader of all time. Hard to say how he sustained that position. Equatorians, it’s time to wake up and defend yourselves in whatever way possible! A curse to share one nation with bunch of idiots, illiterates and tribalistic ethnic group! That’s exactly what’s happening in the World’s youngest and war – torn country. From where on earth can you claim to be liberator and you go ahead to summarize the people you have liberated, it’s so pathetic! Equatorians, 2013 was Nuer but the year 2015 is bringing something horrible so stand side by side to protect your land. To Nyamilepedia, this report is not balance! It is both Acholi and Madi corridor coming under the barbaric attacks of Jieng but why putting only Madi corridor on focus? Situation in Panyinkwara, Abara Boma of Magwi County Easter Equatoria State was so tense yesterday as civilians stayed awake in fear of attacks falling on them anytime!

    • Dear Charles, Sorry for coming across neglecting our people in Acholi Corridor. On behalf of our colleagues here at Nyamilepedia and Southsudanliberty.com, I can assure you that should we know any south Sudanese at risk anywhere, the world shall know and we shall not hesitate.

      Although we have strategic centers of reporting through out the states, we have had difficulties at the areas you mention to find a dedicated insiders. Our Eminent colleague Andre Olweny, son of the land is in a caliber of his own and under this police and military state, we still hope to get a dedicated Citizen in Acholi corridor and until then please do not hesitate to alert us of such dangers to our peoples in the Corridor. We believe all South Sudanese are our people in clouding ordinary Jiengs, Our problem is the Jieng Council of Devils as our opinion written TT Shaka put sit.

      We do not believe in government but the people, we do not believe in politicians but the truth and rule of laws. We look forward in the day we shall have a government by the people, of the people and for the people where we the Journalist shall not be an endangered species and report truthfully and freely in any corner of this great nation, the Republic of South Sudan.

    The jenge do not know politics, they could by now starting to be good to the three GREATER EQUTORIAN STATES so that they at least gets 1% of the vote in the next coming election. For me it is good for them to carry on with their animalic minds. This is good so that no body vote for kiir. People let us not fear, time runs very fast. What we want to do is join hands to bring reforms to the country. The question of jenge rule now ending. The son of Juba cde Alfred Lado GORE and Dr. Riak are on the way, the future looks bright.

    baaaaak knows this very well that elections are coming and no any vote should be casted to arian jenge by any EQUATORIAN. Hope the Nuer and the Shilluk do the same because all of us felt the land grabbing policy by arian jenge.

    Indeed, it is a shame to share South Sudan with these repugnant animals, the Dinkas.

    The future of our Country will always remain chained to darkness, if we don`t take power away from them.
    Dinka tribe is a DOOM in South Sudan.
    All oppressed tribes must work together and once and for all terminate them.

  • you know what? the dinka are really fools brought from cattle keeping camp to hold a gun,in order to suppress other tribes especially in Equatoria and upper Nile,they are really dying like flies in real front lines,if you follow them closely, you find that they are comfortable when deployed in the middle of un armed population
    Now my advice is that let there be no fear from the dinkas,also i will not appreciate our spirit of being patient until something happen, we should not be calling on I GAD or the international community to come and defend us ,i know very well in Equatoria that we can manage pouls plans,
    lets get to do something that they deserve since they are looking for it
