June 29, 2017(Nyamilepedia) ——- Paul Malong’s legacy is evaporating into thin air day by day. As if being forced to lick his master’s boot is not enough, his victorious master [Salva Kiir] is determined to quash and wipe off, his ruthless teen age boys, the Mathiang Anyoor aka red caterpillars although they were primarily founded to help save his regime when war broke out in Juba in 2013.
According to SPLA-IO’s Deputy Army Spokesman Lam Gabriel, early this week, Salva Kiir’s forces clashed with the Mathiang Anyoor in Leer and Mayendit counties as the misled young boys were trying to desert their positions and head back to Aweil. He said the senseless combat resulted to numerous fatalities on both sides.
“This senseless fight with the Mathiang anyoor resulted to several deaths from both sides,” Col. Lam confirmed to our revolutionary desk through email correspondence.
Lam also reiterated their commitment to providing safe passages to the Mathiang Anyoor deserters who have denounced terrorism activities and were trekking back to the kraal as commanded by the peoples’ president, C-in-C Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon.
“The SPLA IO forces are determined to continue providing safe passage to the Mathiang Anyor as ordered by the Commander in Chief, Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon early this month,” he reiterated.
The ongoing hostilities in the region have caused untold displacements of people, more especially from Eastern Lake state and Rumbek, forcing them to take refuge in Panyijar county, which is under county Commissioner Gen. John Tap Poat. Women and children are the most affected as there are scarcities of resources and medicines.
Col. Lam informs the masses and the international communities that the hospitality being exhibited by Gen. John toward the internally displaced, is just a glimpse of what IO stands for. Unlike Salva Kiir’s tribal government which is in pursuit of nothing but a tribal agenda, IO according to Col. Lam, is a non-tribal movement that is aspiring to cater for everyone regardless of their ethnicities and socio-political affiliation.
“…. this is a clear sign that the SPLM/A IO is not a tribal movement but is a national liberation movement that caters for everybody in South Sudan regardless of religion, tribe, race or nationality”, brags the Col.
The commissioner of Panyijar county, Gen. John Tap Poat has appealed to humanitarian agencies for assistance so as to avert the looming humanitarian crisis in the county since the available resources have already been stretched to the limits.
This recent clash between the two genocidal forces [Mathiang Anyoor and Kiir’s fighters] is just a magmatic gas from an active volcano and the real magma is still ascending to the surface. It is only a Question of “WHEN?”
