To: chief of military intelligence,

Major-General Rin Tueny Mabor,

Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence,

Directorate of Military Intelligence,

SSPDF General HQS,

Republic of South Sudan,

Dear Major General,

June 22, 2019(Nyamilepedia) — I am Joseph Manyang Wade, the former South Sudan Military Intelligence officer formerly working in the Counter Intelligence Section.  I am presently residing in Khartoum Bari, Northern Sudan, doing my personal business. I am writing this small letter in response to the allegations against me that I have received concerning the above three mentioned vehicles in the underlined heading to this letter.  

According to the information I have received from various sources concerning the above mentioned vehicles, which was triggered by inquiry conducted by the Chief of Military Intelligence of South Sudan, Major General Rin Tueny Mabor as to the whereabouts of the three vehicles, my former boss, Arech Akot Rech is not telling the truth as he is using me as a scapegoat. Instead of telling the truth, he is accusing me that I am the one exclusively with those vehicles is not true. I am therefore here writing this letter to reveal the truth or the fate of the above mentioned three vehicles.

To tell you the truth, before I left Juba for Khartoum the three vehicles were there. But in the last days before I left, Brigadier Arech Akot ARech, the Director of Counter Intelligence and the one whom I was working under ordered me to sell two Hino Lorries. After their sale, I handed over to him the proceeds of sale. Upon receiving the said proceeds, he gave me a share and then he remained with the rest.

As some of you might have heard or had the information, Arech Akot Arech is currently using that money in building his own house in his home area.  However, in respect to the Armored Land Cruiser, which was formerly used by Former Army Chief of General Staff, General Malong and which was painted in the coloure of the army, it is now repainted white, which means that it is White Land Cruiser. That White Land Cruiser now being used on his behalf of Arech Akot Arech in his personal business of transporting people between Anet and Wau.

I hope the above explanation is enough to tell exactly the whereabouts of the three vehicles. In case Brigadier Arech Akot Arech denies the responsibility, I will be ready to testify against him.  But before I conclude this letter, I would like to thank Major General Rin Tueny Mabor for closing doing the offices of Counter Intelligence at Hai Cinema. When I was still working with counter intelligence, the Hai Cinema Office was the cause of the entire crisis in Juba.

Those who were working in Counter Intelligence running that office at Hai Cinema were behind insecurities in Juba. In particular, those individuals as I know were: (1) Col. Tong Tong Wieu  tel no. 0912700362; (2) Capt. Angok Majok Kon tel: No. 0924555575; (3) 1st Ater Reech Aluei tel no.0924855136; (4) 1st Lt. Silman Majak Mangok tel no.0921111002/0912227775; (5) Sgt. Lat Ijal Lal; (6) Pvt. Taban Manyang Ruoth; (7) Pvt. Deng Garang Yel; and (8) Sgt. Driver Mayen Akon Deng. These were the people who cause the insecurities in Juba.

I am happy that the Counter Intelligence Office at Hai Cinema is closed down. This is good for South Sudan and South Sudanese in general. Some people may say that if I hated what was happening by then in South Sudan, why did I share in the proceeds of those vehicles sold? Of course, I was like other people who are now working in the system in South Sudan though they don’t like some things, they do not have anywhere to complain nor leaving the working because of necessity. I was therefore working there because of necessity.

Finally, I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to the Chief of Military Intelligence, Rin Tueny Mabior for closing the office at Hai Cinema and for taking other measures in fighting against corruption in our army and in particular in the intelligence section. In South Sudan, anti-corruption measures are critical to ensuring proper reforms in the security sector, which are necessary in the human rights protections of all South Sudanese.

I commend the progress made by your office as Chief of Military intelligence, particularly in your recent efforts to coordinate reform in the intelligent sector. But it is not enough you should work in close coordination with the office of the President to ensure that corruption is minimized in the army as a way of building effective and efficient army in South Sudan.  

It is important that there must be sustained and rigorous efforts to root out corruption in the police, judiciary, and military, which will help stem the loss of tax revenues from lucrative natural resources, especially the borders and other sectors. In that respect, strong leadership from your position and the Ministry of Internal Affairs are needed to implement anti-corruption reforms and mechanisms that will help South Sudan ensure proper management of resources by government offices and protection of citizens’ rights and their property.

There are also a series of measures that your office should take in the longer term to address abuses of offices related to corruption. I urge you in coordination of the Office of the President and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to:

(1) Ensure the effective investigations into the military and all the intelligence sections, which should include the enactment or the use of anti-corruption and money laundering legislation to fight corruption in the army and other public sectors.

(2) Fully implement and enforce the South Sudan Right to Access to Information Act, 2013, among other things so that citizens and civil society organizations can play a more active role in supporting anti-corruption work.

(3) Amend the verification system to include assessment of government and company compliance with laws protecting local land and other community rights.

(4) Provide clear support for the Anti-Corruption Commission’s work on abuse of public and private offices and other natural resource sector reform. There should be the law introducing the concept of public protector like that of South Africa whose works shall be the constitutional one protection citizens against corruption and abuse of offices.

(5) Extend or establish the mandate and provide clear support for the Presidential Delivery Unit on corruption, in particular its work on bureaucratic reform for transparency and anti-corruption.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and experience for the position of Security Officer at Retail Ocean.
