July 11, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— The government of Uganda has deployed several troops to Juba in a mission to rescue President Salva Kiir Mayardit who is fighting his deputy Dr. Riek Machar Teny in Juba, an eye witness who chooses to be anonymous for fear of his security has seen over four trucks in Koboko leaving for Kaya moving, all full of UPDF forces properly armed.
The UPDF forces are expected to be in Juba, through Kaya-Yei road on Tuesday, for immediate rescue mission, South Sudan armed forces fighting in Juba suffered heavy casualties from SPLA-IO though they are the attackers. South Sudan army chief of general staff Gen. Paul Malong Awan triggered the current mayhem in Juba when he tried to assassinate First Vice President Dr, Riek Machar in State House (J1), a deadly attempt foiled by the SPLA-IO forces. All bodyguards of Kiir and Machar killed themselves in action and the onslaught escalated to all parts of the town. Malong has ever since resisted the Agreement on Resolution on the Conflict in South Sudan signed in August last year, showed his unwillingness to peace agreement by going to Aweil in order to avoid meeting Machar during his historical arrival to Juba.
UPDF deployment to Juba comes as contrary to earlier speculation that UPDF would not jet into nation’s capital because Awan was told off by President Museveni during the former’s visit that Uganda is not going to interfere this time in the current South Sudan crisis.
