July 31, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– Latest security reports from Unity State indicate that at least three generals in SPLA-IO army have Defected to Kiir’s SPLA and abandoned their positions in Unity State last night.

According to Weirial Puok Baluang, the Official Spokesman of SPLA-IO in Unity State, Maj. Gen Makal Kuol Deng has abandoned his position at 3Am with 12 soldiers this morning.

“We would like to inform our people that, Gen. Makal Kuol Deng and Lt. Col Gatnyoai Chidong along with 12 guards deserted sector two GHqs at 3Am night on 31st July 2016.” Weirial said.

” We believe the intention of the two comrades is to join Taban Deng who is desperately in need of soldiers.” Weirial continued.

Speaking to Lat Kuem, an SPLA-IO soldier, who served under Gen. Makal during 2014-2015 operations in Unity State, Lat confirmed that his former boss has joined government troops in Panakuach military barrack.

In other reports, two other generals, Gen. Dor Manjur and Gen. Carlo Kuol have reportedly defected in Guit County and staged a fight against SPLA-IO, however, the faction loyal to Machar defeated the two generals and forced them to report to Bentiu .

“Meanwhile, The Commissioner of Guit County, Major Gen. Hoth Chuol forced the bribed two generals (Carlo Kuol and Dor Manjur ) toward Bentiu with less than 30 body guards.” Said Weirial, the spokesman of Unity State governor.

“Unity State is clean from those who follows individual politicians rather than the vision.” he continued.

Gen. Carlo was formerly a loyalist of President Salva Kiir until he was captured in Unity State battle in mid-April 2014. He was then transformed into SPLA-IO military and remain stationed in Unity State.

Maj. Gen. Makal Kuol would be the first senior general that has defected  to Taban Deng Gai since his defection to Kiir’s SPLM faction three weeks ago.

Taban was controversially appointed by President Salva Kiir as a First Vice President replacing Dr. Riek Machar last week. In response, SPLM/SPLA-IO has rejected the appointment and called it illegal and illegitimate.

Makal Kuol ,Dor Manjuor and Carlo Kuol have proven beyond the eye of doubt that when they defected in 2013 violent ,it was because Taban Deng abandoned the regime .Wish them good luck they find the same nasty regime .

They are Nuer and Jaang mixed and slightly tainted with Arabs blood. Too many of those breed are what populates Unity State, just go figure the chaos that come with such a breed. Their names alone are quite telling.

You Makal don’t forget that Dr. Riek is the one who saved your life when Polino Matip wanted to kill you.

I expected that. However it’s easy to identify tge bias in the report. I also understand how the report tried to make milder the aggravating defection of IO soldiers in thousands. Whatever it’s , Real soldiers will come back home to join the SPLA patriotic sons of this nation in maintaining the integrity and dignity of South Sudan…

Mayor,

That is the report submitted. When the government side submitted their reports, it will be of course exaggerated, but we will work on it and publish it as well.

Hey guys who cares about government except Jieng Council and their’s elites like Taban Deng and the rest of the followers but some websites of media has been fairly a bit in terms of reporting the facts such as this then SSTV.

War on social media is more than war on the ground . Riek supporters are supposed to analyze why IOs left juba for bush again.

Military tactical withdrawal isn’t defeated but prepare for real hard hit offensive once again for all friends as we speak it gets mystery mixed feelings alot of fear of losing is own life without getting any benefit to fight for. No paid, no food with tribal government all of that its doesn’t look good from Government side.
