BREAKING: SSUF Decries Government Plans To Assassinate Former Army Chief
April 19th, 2018(Nyamilepedia) —– South Sudan’s former Chief of General Staff of the SPLA(IG) turned rebel, Gen. Paul Malong Awan, is on the run fearing for his life from an administration he defended through thick and thin.
Gen. Malong, formerly known as “King Paul”, is now among the main targets for immediate assassination by Salva Kiir’s government according to the intelligence of his newly formed rebel group – the South Sudan United Front Army(SSUF/A).
According to a press release extended to Nyamilepedia, South Sudan’s crumbling government has deployed agents and foreign assassins with a strategic plan to track down the former Chief of Staff with intent to harm him.
“It has come to our attention that the government of South Sudan has deployed secret agents and foreign assasins with plans to bring harm to the leader of South Sudan United Front, Gen. Paul Malong Awan, his family members and associates living in Kenya” Said Laul Dau, a senior member of SSUF/A
“Impeccable source has revealed to us the details of the plans, including the amount of money smuggled into Kenya via Loki through the Wilson Airport in Nairobi. The smuggled amount of money will be used for hiring assassins, kidnappers, and maiming SSUF sympathizers living in Kenya” the statement continued.
In what becomes the new South Sudan odeal, SSUF/A reiterates that their movement has enough details of those who are assigned to harm their leader and his supporters.
“The organization would like to warn that it has the details of members of National Security service and foreign assassins assigned to kidnap, maim or assassinate Gen. Paul Malong Awan and perceived to be his supporters” Lual Dau continued.
If confirmed, this allegation would sound very similar to an earlier government’s plan to assasinate or eliminate the former Vice President, Dr Riek Machar.
Less than two weeks ago, Kiir’s administration revealed its major plan to assassinate Dr. Riek Machar Teny in mid 2016 and that was to be carried out by none other than Gen. Malong — a once power military chief now turned into an underdog rebel commander.
According to government spokesman, Michael Makuei Lueth, and President’s Press Secretary, Ateny Wek Ateny, Gen. Malong was given $10 millions US Dollar in one shot by South Sudan Central Bank in July 2016 to buy drones, weapons and hire foreign intelligent and assassins to track down Dr. Machar and kill him after he fled the capital, Juba.
According to multiple sources Juba contracted the most feared Black Water — a US private security firm that was sponsored by President and the CIA to track down and kill Al Qaeda leader, Usama Bin Laden and other main Al Qaeda operatives in early 2000 — and regional intelligent to assasinate Dr. Riek Machar in 2016.
Among other promises, Gen. Malong hoped to prevent Dr. Machar from leading South Sudan as long as he lives. He publicly promises in 2014 to either capture or kill Dr. Machar within 30 days, however, both Malong and Machar today are equal targets of Mr. Kiir and his newfound allies.
Gen. Malong fled Kenya to Sudan in hopes to reach his hometown to mobilize military support; however, a South Sudan diplomat in Washington, Gordon Buay Maleek, claims that Gen. Malong is in talks with LRA leader, Joseph Kony, to rely on their support to penetrate to Aweil through the Central Africa Republic.
