OPINION: HOW SUZANE JAMBO AND PAUL MALONG MASTERMINDED THE INFAMOUS J1 COMBAT MISSION IN AN ATTEMPT TO TOPPLE SALVA KIIR
By Nicholas Osobi,
Sept 23, 2018(Nyamilepedia) — Many South Sudanese may have known Suzzane Jambo as a vocal human right activist or Salva Kiir’s casual bedroom therapist [concubine] only but the tough-talking female politician is also a calculative opportunist who masterminded the infamous J1, a combat mission which plunged the youngest nation into political quagmire. Exclusive report reaching our revolutionary desk details how she (Suzzane) tactically used both Kiir and Malong to her advantage and left the power house (J1) crumbling.
According to our reliable sources, the serial single mother connived with former Army chief of staff, Paul Malong Awan and some like-minded JCE members to execute the infamous J1 mission in an endeavour to topple Salva Kiir and assumed the country’s top office. As a reward for “job well done” Suzzane had promised to protect Malong and his partners-in-crime from any indictment by ICC should the Hague based court come after them in the future.
President Kiir was clueless and uninformed about the “Malong-Suzzane’s scheme” and he kept confining in Suzzane whenever he needed some advice. Gripped by anxiety over the presence of, Machar and Taban Deng Gai in Juba, Kiir sought Suzzane’s idea on how to avoid the looming Trojan horse scenario.
For those who may not have heard about the Trojan horse, it is a tale from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, ending the war.
Kiir was envisaging similar situation (Trojan horse war) in Juba if he was not to take any radical measures against Dr. Riek Machar and Taban Deng Gai. He (Kiir) therefore told Suzzane that he was aware of some enmity brewing up between Taban Deng Gai and his boss Riek Machar and that he wanted to capitalize on such gully relationship.
Suzzane Jambo gave him a node and advised that; “the enemy of his enemy is his friend” and that he (Kiir) should eliminate the major enemy, Dr. Riek Machar but discreetly, possibly outside J1 so as to minimise an all-out war. This option was appealing to Kiir but it was impractical at the same time since Dr. Riek Machar was heavily guarded by well-trained commandos.
Unknown to President Salva Kiir, Paul Malong and Suzzane Jambo also had their secret plan against him, the unsuspecting Kiir was lured into convening a crisis meeting allegedly to address the increasingly deteriorating security situation in Juba. The most notable concern at the time was the assasination of IO intelligence chief, Lt. Col George Gismala, a nephew to General Martin Kenyi, by government security apparatus aka unknown gunmen of Juba.
This was an opportunity Malong and his forces would grasp to actualize their plot. Unfortunately, the IO intelligence was fully aware of the situation in J1 and Dr. Machar’s escorts were on full alert.
The heavy deployment around J1 by SPLA-IG and IO turned the scheme, a costly gamble, not worth attempting but Malong and his forces went ahead to try their luck. We all know the end result.
Worried that her double dealings would soon be noticed, Suzzane Jambo is now hiding in her two bedrooms apartment in Nairobi with her secret boyfriend, and manages her Facebook based political party called STEPS. Most of the members of her party are diasporans who don’t know a thing about her.
The emotionally fragile female politician was born out of wedlock to a Portuguese tourist. Her mother hails from Moru tribe. As a non-south Sudanese national she ineligible for any political positions but the absence of constitutional governance makes the young country an experimental state where even aliens can work in J1 and hold any government position provided they can convince the president and his team of drunkards.
Below are some few examples of non-south Sudanese nationals serving at J1;
VP Taban Deng Gai is an Arab from North Sudan;
Suzzane Jambo is a Portuguese by blood and a North Sudanese by birth;
President Salva Kiir’s English tutor /concubine Nancy, is a Ugandan University dropout and she is HIV positive;
VP Taban Gai’s former office secretary/concubine known as Animu Rissai is a Ugandan lady and she is also HIV positive.
