Dec 22, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- As the SPLM/SPLA advanced team headed to Juba to implement the Compromise Peace Agreement signed in August this year, more SPLA forces from Salva Kiir’s regime defected to join the ranks of SSPPF-Arrow boys under the leadership of Eng. Charles Kisanga.
In Yambio, 1st Lieutenant Abel Banga defected with up to 50 soldiers from the Equatoria states and headed toward the headquarter of SSPPF in Western Equatoria.
The Army Commander of Gbudue Division Man General Henry Maleshi deputized by James Kabira has been asked to receive the new comrades in the struggle and provide them with necessary assistance for the interrogation of their new solders into our ranks.
Earlier in another news, Lt Gen Charles Barnaba Kisanga welcomed the defection of James Brig Gen James Kabira back into the ranks of Equatoria based SSPPF forces and he immediately appoint as Deputy commander of Gbudue Division.
The defection of more Equatoria forces into Equatoria resistance as SPLM-IO advanced team arrived in Juba clearly demonstrates that the Equatorians are not convinced that the agreement will bring justice and equality to them and unless IGAD sees the problem and compel the parties to be inclusive, Equatoria could be heading for another war and stall the Peace process.
