September 13th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan’s former labour minister, Gen. Gathoth Gatkuoth Hothnyang, said on Wednesday that South Sudan’s former First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, is his first enemy and the incumbent First Vice President Taban Deng Gai is his second enemy.

Gatkuoth was the country’s labour minister until last month when he was dismissed by President Kiir after falling out with the incumbent First  Vice President, Gen Taban Deng Gai.

In an exclusive interview with the Nyamilepedia on Wednesday, the ex-minister said First Vice President Taban Deng Gai is manipulating his efforts to ban him from leaving the country.

“He [Taban] is trying to manipulate it (ban from leaving the county) because he is saying if I go outside I am going to talk to the White www.buyantibioticshere.com Army and will the White Army will fight,” he said.

He said he do not have the reason to go and fight from outside when Taban is fighting him in Juba – saying his number one enemy is Machar and Taban as his number two enemy.

“I said,  why should I go outside and Taban is fighting me here in Juba,” he asked adding “The first enemy for me is Riek Machar. The second enemy is Taban”

He said the former is in Khartoum and the later is in Juba asking why he should go and flee Juba to fight from outside when all are coming to Juba.

“Taban is here in Juba and Riek is in Khartoum and they are coming to Juba so why should I go outside” he asked

He said the FVP Taban Deng Gai is trying to confuse the security leadership something which he said has been rejected.

“Taban actually want to confuse the security leadership but the security have rejected such demands” he said.
