Dec 23, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- The Chief of South Sudan army, Gen. Paul Malong Awan, who bitterly protested the signing of peace agreement and the return of huge advanced team of SPLM/SPLA in Opposition, returned to the national capital on Tuesday afternoon.

According to a member of national security, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to sensitivity of the case, Gen. Malong returned to Juba on Tuesday afternoon at the order of President.

Gen. Malong, a war veteran who served two controversial terms as the governor of Northern Bhar El Ghazal took over the army in mid 2013 and started recruiting and training over 15, 000 tribal militia known as Mathiang Anyoor or Dotkubeny that are believed to have been involved in door-to-door massacres of the Nuer ethnic group, the tribe of South Sudan’s incoming First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

According to reliable sources, Gen. Malong left Juba for his home town of Aweil, Northern Bhar el Ghazal, on Friday in protest to an order by President Salva Kiir to welcome the advance team of SPLM/SPLA despite claims of insecurity or lack of accommodation by some government officials.

The source believes that president Salva Kiir was responding to the head of Joint Monitoring and Evacuation Commission, President Festus Mogae, who demands that the opposition should not miss the second meeting of JMEC.

Gen. Malong, who promised upon taking the oath in April 2014 to end the conflict militarily or capture Dr. Riek Machar in 30 days, has been committed to end the war for the last two years, however, South Sudan conflict has changes many faces in the last 21 months.

Unlike the agreements that have been violated many times, the welcoming of SPLM/SPLA advance was a collective responsibility comprising of government officials, members of JMEC, members of SPLA-IO and members of former detainees.

While the authority of Juba International Airport ensured that the airport remained opened past its regular operating hours, some generators were turned off earlier enough to preserve some fuel to light the airport for safe landing of SPLM/SPLA advanced team.

    NyanAwandit,

    Why run away from implementing the peace agreement?

    NyanAwandit, evidently, Bhare El Ghazalianly, and Awielly thought peaceful resolution of this war won’t and shall never happened in his sorrow-treacherous watch.

    Too bad, it is imminently happening, traitor, NyanAwan.

    Folken,

    I have been tell these boys who call themselves, tolio, beeeek/baaak, amen and gatpöt that changes are on the way and this country will never be the same but they always ignore. We talk out of experience as grown up men not like young boys of Kakuma camp who just ran home to help looting this country.

    beek and amen, you follow the news and be ready to shed tears. Kiir is understanding and is already showing the world that he is innocent but was decieved by the jenge council of awirin. This will not make us change our plans of eforcing FEDERAL RULE in this country. We will never rest until we see that there is democracy not dinkacracy in this country. Please be ready to go mura.

  • Deng Dut Parek Dut

    Stop baseless allegations here.

  • Rol

    I think, Malong have no other option rather than to accept peace like other South Sudanese. South Sudan is bigger than him and there is no way he can still preach for more suffering

  • DINGIT NA TUGGÖ

    deng dut parek dut,

    who are you? Telling us to stop? No more military rule, we are heading towards democracy and leaving dinkacracy with you. You better follow malong to awil. You need to follow news every second to find out the warnings given to jenge tribe by the USA, AU & IGAD. Please note that this country is not going to be the same.

    Mr Mark Tiger Ludoru, thank you so for hitting the nail on the right place. Let us work together to make sure that FEDERAL RULE is put in place to send deng and his cows back home

  • UncleD

    If all these allegations are true, then the best thing that the General can do is to help the signatories of this Peace Agreement with all his energy to implement this badly needed Peace Agreement in good faith Or the waste case scenario will be that his Boss will be forced to get rid of him whether he likes it or not!

  • You are really a crazy humanbeing who never know what will happen in the future. I tell you NO hope in this FAKE peace of your. do you mean that the coming of IO thieves will prevent fighting to countinue in some part of south sudan?

  • Gatwech Kuany Juong

    YOU NEED NOT TO GO ANYWHERE. BETTER TO RETURNED BACK

  • DINGIT NA TUGGO, you Equatoria had got no different with women, a woman can speak out some words but no implementation for those words when it come to an action, King Pual Malong has right to reject peace agreement because riek machar,s nuer rebels were suppose to be destroyed by King pual malong if IGAD and international community were not supported Riek machar

  • Nuer Rebels of riek machar are happy when their thieves advance team arrived in juba, all Dinka believe that Nuer rebellion cannot achieved the goal because Nuer like food so much they cannot stay without food completely. that was why during the struggle they left Jonh Garang in the bush with Dinka sons and they came back to join Arabs so that they get food,

    There is nothing Nuer can do and achieve it, because Nuer like flies afly can jump into something which it dosen,t know whether it will kill it or not. Nuer started the war in south sudan twice it happened in 1991 of which they killed 40,000 innocent Dinka in Bor when Riek machar defected from Jonh garang and again they caused another war in 2013 for power struggle of which they killed 30,000 of innocent civillian in Bor, malakal and Bentiu.

    Riek machar is not a leader commpletely you wait for election 2018 it will be his family to vote him.

  • foolish rebels are talking of peace implementation in juba peace cannot be implemented in juba can be implemented in the field were troops are reside, if you are happy that thief TABAN DENG is juba than every thing will be ok. it is very big hopeless

  • Paul Nyanwan was saying i will crush IO with in 90 days or i will resign, all has failed no resignation or capturing of Dr. Riak. What happen to you Dinka? where ever you go problem follow? You (Dinka) made coup against Samuel Gai Tut in 1983 and Dr. Riak in 2013 but all in vain

  • President Festus is the Boss in Juba.

    He will and shall implement the peace agreement fully whether NyanAwandit or Jiengs Council of Evils like it or not.

    All anti-peace elements will be dealt with and punished internally, regionally, and internationally period.

  • when you say true, Nuer rebel does not like it
    they deleted my comment when I started it, the first Riek rebellion
    The name of website—-Nyamilepedia—is questionable.
    it infested by Nuer rebellion .
    I will stop to comment in this tribal website

  • Madong Kuoth

    The foolish majority do not see that there is some one else who is President in Republic Of South Sudan now. Let them understand that there is whether JCE plus their nincompoops to acknowledge that no way to run in this time. I am so sure that every thing will be changing in Republic Of South Sudan. No groups of people will say again to take this country to their owner properties instead its belongs to 64 tribes in South Sudan. If there is some people do think that Nuer Rebels will not and can not change any thing, let them wait and they will see by their darkness eye. New Constitutions must be written and no decree again no question, Federalism must written no question. Any way wait for Rebels return to Juba. If stupid emptiest Paul Malong does not want then let him go to bush period and he is free to take army against Unity government which is very soon be forming whether he likes or not time against him.

  • DINGIT NA TUGGÖ

    amen,

    you are a true idiot. If Equatorians have got not difference with women, why do you keep on crying day and night? You have been saying that you do not want peace, yet we do force it into your dirty anus. you said the SPLA/M-IO will never set foot in Juba, why do you accept the SPLA/M-IO push their legs deep into your dirty anus? Equatorians are not women. Just wait and see. What I told is happening especially these days. Meetings for bringing reforms to this country are taking place day here in Juba. Some of these meetings being shared by pres. kiir himself and who are you to talk nonsense? Please amen, burry your cow mind and join human understanding

    tell every body who does not want peace that this is not time for animal behavious. We are here in Juba to stay and bring peace not to waste time
