September 7th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan’s former Army Chief of Staffs Gen. Paul Malong Awan has been rushed to a hospital in Nairobi, Kenya after falling sick on Thursday, several sources told the Nyamilepedia.

One source said Malong has been suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure but could not tell the Nyamilepedia whether he was admitted to the hospital for the same sickness or for other sickness.

“What I know is that General Along has been suffering from high-blood pressure and diabetes but I am not sure whether he was admitted to the hospital for the same sickness or not,” the source told the Nyamilepedia on the condition of anonymity.

Another source said Malong was admitted to a Nairobi hospital after complaining of short comings in breathing but could not follow up after his admission.

“Yes Malong complained of having difficulties in breathing on Thursday afternoon and because of that reason he was admitted to the hospital and hopefully he will be fin,” the source also said on the condition of anonymity.

He added that the doctor said he will leave his hospital bed on Saturday and will carry on his normal duties.
