November 15th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan’s main armed opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny has asked unassigned members of the SPLM-IO occupying hotels in Juba to leave either for home or cantonment sites according to a copy of the order seen by Nyamilepedia.

In the letter dated November 11th, Machar identified almost 60 persons belonging to the group and are staying in hotels while they are not assigned to any of the peace mechanisms implementing the 2018 peace agreement.

The powerful political leader who now resides in the Sudanese capital Khartoum asked them to either report to their homes or go to a cantonment site for the main armed opposition group outside the capital Juba.

“The following members of the SPLM/SPLA (IO) who have given accommodation in hotels which are not assigned to any mechanisms are requested to leave the present accommodation and to find private accommodation or go to Wuna Aliet or Lobjpo cantonment sites,” Machar said in a letter addressed to SPLM-IO deputy chairperson and deputy chairperson of the peace implementing body NPTC.
