Jan 7th 2016(Nyamilepedia) — Shocking disclosure reached our desk as the SPLM-IO advance teams with their counterparts from the government under the umbrella of Joint Monitoring and Evaluation commission/JMEC are making efforts to end the bloodshed.

Close sources to JJ Okot, confirmed by other higher sources in the Military elite, with insiders knowledge, revealed that a highly secretive meeting with its minutes classified, was conducted by the chief of general staff, Paul Malong, Defense Minister Koul Manyang Juuk, and the die hard kiir’s supporter J.J Akot, to ensure, General Martin Kenyi does not live and must be assassinated.

Not very surprising is the name of an Equatorian in this plot, JJ. Okot, the Commanding general for Division 6 based in Western Equatoria and Lakes states, that killed numerous civilians in Western Equatoria with thousands displaced into DR.Congo per the latest UN report, thus it is not surprising he is trusted by the tribal Juba regime.

Per other sources, JJ Okot is a long time enemy of Gen. Martin Kenyi dating back to the war of liberations. Other observers in Magwi County, among both the Ma’di and the Acholis, other than some of his close clan, blames him as the chief architect of the unrest between the sisterly tribes engineered by the Jiengs.

The credible source, with full knowledge and access to the three generals named above, revealed security leakage about the closed doors meeting held by the three, who according to the source, requesting his name to be held due to sensitivity of the matter, said the three generals have plot an assassination attempt on the life of Major General Martin Kenyi Tartisio immediately upon his arrival in Juba International airport.

The three have made selections of highly trained snipers from among the presidential guard to carry the assassination immediately on the way from Juba International Airport, and if the plan to assassinate Martin Kenyi on the way from airport failed, the assigned soldiers (snipers) from Tiger presidential guard should follow him (Martin Kenyi) to the Hotel and assassinate him from his hotel room. The time frame given was within three days. This is an important window before JMEC/UN affords him security.

This is urgent and serious life and peace threatening news. We at south Sudan Liberty News have taken it seriously and we urged those in the close company of General Kenyi to take extra precautions and advise him not to set his feet to Juba. We understand that General Kenyi was supposed to have come with the members of SPLA-IO advance team first batch, but due to some illness he was unable to travel with the team but have rescheduled to fly to Juba in the next 24 hours. Other sources indicate that General Kenyi is scheduled to arrive Juba Airport tomorrow.

According to the inside source, who leaked the security meeting details, indicates that Kiir, JCE and the three generals believe it is urgent and imperative to eliminate General Kenyi as they blame him for all the popular upraising in Equatoria regions but more so in Eastern Equatoria, particularly in the Ma’di corridor believing his death will paralyze the Ma’di uprising and become crippled within days and solve “the Equatorian headaches” as they called it.

The master-planners concluded that when General Kenyi is put to death, the rest of rebellions including the leadership of the Arrow Boys will cease their hostilities against the government, that way the Equatorian region will be free from any resistant movement, this will enable the government forces to concentrate in Upper Nile, clearing what they called in their closed doors meeting the “divided, exhausted and bankrupt” rebellion of Riek Machar.

The Rebels in Ma’di corridor are seen by Juba as an existential threat to the tribal regime of Salva Kiir Mayerdit, chiefly due to the Juba-Nimule highway which runs through the heart of the Ma’di corridor.

Additionally the Source revealed that, since 1994s, Ma’di corridor housed more than 100.000 Dinka IDPs with an estimated number of 500,000 cows roaming freely, this new breed of Ma’di rebellion is seen by the Dinka as a threat to their goals to turn Ma’diland into Jieng land, and they concluded Kenyi must be eliminated to achieve such.

Other methods considered by the three general involved eliminating General Kenyi in a Car accident, food poisonings and recruitment of plain cloths security operatives, however they voted for the Sniper to get the job done without missing a chance, which they shall blame on the insecurities in Juba.

As it can be recalled, juba did not have friendly relations with General Kenyi, even before his rebellions to Join Dr. RIek Machar, he was thrown in Jail without Charges, until taken out of Jail by Equatorian boys during the black December 2013. While in Nairobi, the Juba regime continued to seek means for his demise, using his own Kin, Ambassador John Andruga.http://www.southsudanliberty.com/news/index.php/latest-news/429-president-kiir-dr-ann-and-ambasador-john-andruga-s-failed-assassination-attempt-on-gen-martin-kenyi-s-life

We at SSLN urge the chairman of SPLA-IO, Dr Rieck Machar, to hold back the arrival of the Equatorian heavy weight, Gen. Martin Kenyi until the full security implementations and Juba is demilitarized, We also urge the UN to ensure the securities of these former rebels who put their lives in the lions den for the sake of peace are protected. This is not a vein call, given despite of the peace deals and the amnesty issued by Kiir, he, the president continued to fight Kenyi’s forces in Ma’di corridor and as we learned today executed numerous Youth in Yambio.

Kiir and his group has yet to show any gestures of good will or a sign of being tired of blood shed but rather are unwilling partners to this peace and grudgingly found themselves in what they do not believe in nor bought into as they are stuck into bloodsheds and tribal agendas.

This government wants to kill everybody in SPLA io,but SPLA io they are not aware about that .these people had so many plans to kill any one.so there will be no peace as long as those thugs still in power.

Gat.darwich January 7, 2016 at 7:59 pm

Dr. Riek must take this warning seriously and make sure that Gen. Kenyi shouldn’t go to Juba without concrete security measures in place for his personal safety.

Gatdarwich would recommends Gen. Kenyi go Juba together with the SPLA-IO forces in Equatoria period

What those in picture going to build for people of South Sudan than only their little months.

Nikalongo sanduksanduk January 8, 2016 at 3:19 am

Nonsense. The Author of this article is a liar and an enemy of peace. He has always written inflammatory and baseless articles on Politicians from Eastern Equatoria States and in particular the Acholi-Ma’di corridor. What will JJ Okot benefit from the death of Martin Kenyi? Arrow boys also have their owners and Kenyi leads no separate rebellion anywhere in EES other than the SPLA-IO. Please, there is a peace agreement on the table and all armed opposition and govt. supporters should line up behind it. We will never be able to develop our country as long as we instigate our people to violence through lies and deceptions.

Sambala Kutekimang January 8, 2016 at 4:00 am

if that really happen, then kenyis blood will be like a fertilizer to the current grievance. His blood will catalise the already fragile situation to a full 1982/83 memory.

DINGIT NA TUGGÖ January 8, 2016 at 4:36 am


people who do not understand usually ask so many stupid question? Let me answer you straight forward, those galant SPLA/M commanders in the picture are going to secure the implementation of the peace agreement you always inisted is not going to be implemented. The ministries we want are already in our hands and the reforms we want are going to happen. Only that you do not understand. This is why I usually tell you to follow kiir’s cows which were taken away from Juba to warap.

beeek, tolio and amen, going after cattles is what you know best and this will give us to enjoy work without hearing your every day’s stupid questions.

You usually call us cowards without making good research about the people of GREATER EQUATORIA. Now you want to eliminate our GENERAL KENYI. Why you want do that if you are not afraid of us? Now who is coward, me or you? Courageous people do not kill others in secrets, you must stand with us face to face. We are now working face to face with you. we already tell you that we want to make sure that no any jenge gets any vote from us, what do you tell us?

you idiot. you do not understand that we are among the 16 ministries, we share it with you right now but we want to take our votes and give it to Dr. Riak to make sure that no jenge becomes a leader and forever. Hahahahhahahaha beeeek the poor bird.

Kiir already has apologize to the people of South Sudan for draging the people into war. What are you waiting for. YOU have to apologise to yourself how stupid you have been commenting about the reforms we want in this country. How seriously you have been wasting your time without getting good results of your hopes. the last hope now you have is the implementation of your tribal 28 states which is not going to take place, shame on you………

Jock Lul January 8, 2016 at 7:53 am

In the real sense what happened in 2013 will not happen again event to single off-spring of South Sudan, there are responsible southerner Maj.Gen. Martin Kenyni whose death will not be decided by Juba regime, but his Creator alone in a very far future we need him to serve our beloved country South Sudan, Finally God bless your C/ship Martin.

DINGIT NA TUGGÖ January 8, 2016 at 8:47 am

There is nothing call nonsense here. We have to take every rumour very serous. the jenge do not hestate to kill then why do you want the Acholi, Ma’di or all people of GREATER EQUATORIA to take things easy. Though there is an agreement on the table so what? Does this mean that the IO have to walk in Juba with closed eyes? Who does not know about the jenge killing machine? We are rallying behind this agreement which is actually made ready by the hard work of the OPPOSISTION. But still we do not sleep because it is not yet over. Hello, we are are not yet free until FEDERAL RULE is put in place and no any tribal states existing in this country

Deng January 8, 2016 at 4:35 pm

Dinkas have been assassinating many good officers of none Dinka in time of struggle and they continue to do so up to this moment because of their agenda that South Sudan will be all Dinka

DINGIT NA TUGGÖ January 9, 2016 at 12:21 pm


you are 100% right. Non dinkas have to watch out all the time

Wedjuba January 10, 2016 at 3:34 am

Justin is right,

Over the course of the ’83 rebellion against the north, non-Dinka commanders in the SPLA especially from Equatoria and Upper Nile were systematically killed by the Dinkas so as not to get through to the top and later compete at the highest levels of the command chain.

We know all these Dinka ill practices. They don’t face their enemies face to face. They are filthy cowards, who like stabbing from behind.

So Machar and all his top commanders must take any remour very seriously. We are not yet out of the woods.

Concerned south sudanese January 10, 2016 at 5:36 am

The repatriations of the IDPs from the Madiland and all of Greater Equatoria will be the first thing that people of Equatoria want to see happen without that the war is not yet over. All the Dinkas must pack all their belongings to go to Bhar el Ghazal and Bor. No Dinka people now in exile in kenya and Uganda will be flown to Nimule by the IOM as they did in the past. If they come on land they will remain on the truck or bus whatever the means of transportation will be.There is no such thing as Dinka Equatoria as they the Dinka are now trying to represent the natives of the land and even without shame want Yei to be renamed in Dinka claiming they are the majority.Thy kingdom WILL NOT COME!!!

DINGIT NA TUGGÖ January 10, 2016 at 12:30 pm

Concerned South Sudane,

I agree with you. those of tolio, amen and beek are in Adjumani camp in Northern Uganda. When they stopped in Nimule on their way back to bor or warap, let them not get down from the UNHCR trucks. Let them mix themselves with their own stools and urin as their cows mixing themselves with their dung, by the way there is no any difference between them (tolio, amen and beek) and their own cows. I have been telling them these for many years that let them not insult us but they do failed to take my words so seriously. Any way am not giving up teaching them the fact, for teaching is our great proffesion.
