Jan 7, 2017(Nyamilepedia) —— Latest reports from South Sudan’s Upper Nile and Central Equatoria states alleged that the forces of SPLA in Opposition has fought SPLA-IG in Nasir and Morobo country.

According to SPLA-IO spokesman, Col. William Gatjiath Deng, their forces were attacked by the SPLA-Juba in Morobo County of Central Equatoria State, a position the rebels have maintained as a stronghold for months.

“This morning the bases of the gallant SPLA-IO forces under the command of Cdr. Major General Kenyi Loborng and Major General Mabieh Gaar were attacked by the ruthless SPLA-IG forces in Morobo County of Central Equatoria State” Col. Gatjiath announces.

“In response, the gallant SPLA-IO forces pursued and defeated the ruthless SPLA-IG elements, killing several on spot” Gatjiath claims.

The IO military spokesman believes that their forces are in full control of Morobo County once again, a report Nyamilepedia could not independently verify.

Gatjiath claims the government side is assembling reinforcements in Torit from nearby major towns like Kapoeta and Mogiri.

“the regime has been reinforcing Torit from Kapoeta and Mogiri following their defeats at Hillieu, Tutumore, Ibalany-Faira(Lokono), Lelere and Isaloro by the brave SPLA-IO forces of the anyanya division” Gatjiath said.

According to Gatjiath, the SPLA-IO forces are commanded by Major General Patrick Ohiti Chapuho and Brig. Gen. James Odongu.

The fighting, according to SPLA-IO reports, has claimed more than 30 lives on the government side and left many others wounded.

Although the SPLA-IO spokesman did not establish casualties on their IO side in the recent fighting in Morobo county, he said his forces have locked down Torit-Juba, Torit-Hillieu and Torit-Magwi roads.

Fighting in Nasir

According to Secretary of information of Sobat State, Mr. Dukhan Jundit Both, government forces attempted to cross to Nordeang in Nasir but their forces were resisted before they could cross the Sobat River. Many of them drown, he says.

“this is to inform the SPLM IO members and the world that, Sobat state is under control of Dr Riek Machar-Teny except Wec-Yar-Adiew.” Said Dukhan Jundit Both.

“Salva Kiir soldiers attempt to across to Nordeng has failed and their forces have drown in Sobat River on Thursday.” Jundit continues.

Jundit further said their forces “captured good weapons in good condition”.

In other reports, SPLA-IO has confirmed the death of Dr. Lam Akol’s Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Gabriel Gatwech Chan(Tanginye) and his Deputy, Maj. Gen. Yohannes Okiech.

As confirmed through graphics that are trending on social media, SPLA-IO has captured and detained some soldiers from Dr. Lam’s forces and killed most of them who tried to resist.

When will Lam join the moment is the question all are waiting for? Is it possible that Lam is contracted as a distractor to help take out the targets of Jaang councils on either sides? because he clearly put his small size moment in between the major forces knowing very well that its not going to work out well for his commanders on the ground. Call me a conspiracy theorist but what the hell is Lam Akol doing really?

Ladies and gentlemen the death of Jinye is no different from the death of many other Nuers who were at one point in Nuer history were national heroes and leaders but has no balls to stand up for what is right against what is wrong. hence the saying.. “a man who has nothing to stand for will fall for anything” Tang fell, William Nyuon fell, Garhoth Mai, will fall, Taban is already taban, and that Cieng Nyejaani boy of Gajaak, Lol Gatkuoth is no different from the rest of those who falls for anything. What I mean is there is no better time for these cowards to stand with Nuers than this time. There simply is no better time than this time.

Winning your little pathetic battles against Machar does not translates into you winning this tribal war.

Making Riek Machar run like a rat been chased by a cat is a sign that government is wining the war. The government has forced him into exit in South Africa. Victory……Victory………..Victory …….. job well done …… long live Spla
