May 21, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —— Lul Ruai Kong, a former rebel spokesman, who switched sides in February 2015 and recently appointed the spokesman for the government side, threatens his former leadership over the clashes in Unity States.
Lul, a brigadier general, who got promoted by Dr. Riek Machar Teny to his latest rank while serving SPLA-IO in the bush, threatens the First Vice President to admit that he no longer controls his army in Unity state or else the SPLM/SPLA-IO leaders in Juba will face a nasty music.
“SPLA IO leader should be honest and admit that he is no longer in control of fighters attacking our forces or else we would be forced to play some nasty music to those within our reach” Said Brig. Lul Ruai Koang in his social media “military briefing report”.
Lul was responding to reports circulated by SPLA-IO a few days ago in which the former rebels accused the former government of Salva Kiir of attacking their position in Unity State but bragged that the rebels defeated the enemy and captured their weapons.

According to Lul, the government side felt into SPLA-IO ambush outside Bentiu town and suffered huge consequences.
Lul confirmed that the leader of his group, capt. Paul Mawic Riek was killed in the ambush and two PKMs machine guns were captured by the rebels before the government troop retreated to Bentiu town.
“On that fateful day, the late Capt. Paul Mawic Riek left with 15 soldiers under his command for routine reconnaissance. En route to the area, they fell in an SPLA IO led ambush resulting in him losing his dear life while another serviceman was wounded, and 2 PKM light machine guns were stolen by the attackers. Our small recce team was overwhelmed and as result, retreated to Bentiu town.” Lul said.
According to SPLA-IO spokesman, Col. Gatjiath Deng, the SPLA-J1 attacked their positions on May 15 at 7Am at Matjang and Tuarkiel in Rubkona county, a distance of more than 10kms from Bentiu town in search of food.
Although Lul admits that fighting ensured outside Bentiu town, he claimed the two factions fought within Bentiu area at a distance of 4kms away from the town center.
“The truth of the matter is that SPLA IO fighters have been encroaching on our territory almost on daily basis and on 14th May 2016, they came as close as 4km south of our defensive positions in Bentiu town.” Lul registered.
According to critics, the controversial spokesman, who never commanded troops in the battle field, could be fighting his own war of revenge against his former leaders.
In his statement, Lul overreacted calling the SPLM/SPLA-IO leadership “armed idiots commanded by irrational and irresponsible commanders”.
“These hostile acts is a proof that SPLA IO fighters are nothing more than armed idiots commanded by irrational and irresponsible commanders.” Lul said.
Lul defected from the rebel movement in late 2014 over personal grudges with the current Minister, Mabior Garang de Mabior, who was then a committee chairman for information and public relation for SPLM/SPLA-IO.

Although Lul promised president Salva Kiir and SPLA-J1 leadership upon his appointment that he will “serve SPLA in media warfare to his last drop of blood”, he is yet to gain momentum on Facebook’s media warfare.
While his long reports get very little likes and shares, he receives many negative feedback from his followers who are mostly supporters and sympathizers of SPLA/M-IO that he continually provokes.
Responses likes these and counting are true media warfare that may cost the young brigadier general not only frustrations but high blood pressure, if not his last drop of blood.
“stupid,you are barking for nothing your captain was kill in attempt to loot cattle in the area which become source of income in your policy of divide and rule,stupid mathiang-anyor stop lies” Said Duop Jak.
“Lul Ruai Koang, You are a shame to us. Stop spreading lies. May our good God punish all of you.” Said Changkuothnyatungong Gatnyaminran, a commander of SPLA-IO on social media.
“Lier to the core. This dude name Lul Ruei Kong is nothing but disease to the entire nation of South Sudan. The SPLA loves nothing but liar who spite nothing instead of lies. C-130s flares are always meant to shine the place they intend to land in such as places like South Sudan where there is no enough electricity where pilot could clearly see where he or she is landing the bird. Man, you have no different with Lucifer aka Satan himself. If you don’t watch out and be clear of what you’re putting out there in the media, than your lying would cause people lives again. Please shout up.” Said Puot K. Chuol.
