General Simon Gatwech Dual, allowed both officers NCOs and men of (each) Division to narrate their grievances among themselves while in actual fact, they are comrades who had been fighting the enemy together and also still waiting boldly to be amalgamated with the regime’s forces if this progile peace still holding.
Moreover, most of the soldiers found that nothing can trigger fighting amongst themselves rather than the rumors and hypocrisy ideology which is being installed by some SPLA(IO) senior officers in Juba whose jobs aim to disintegrate the army and engineering fallacies and illusion campaigns against the pillars and the heartiness commanders who are still keeping the vision and revivalism of the movement.
Therefore, General Simon Gatwech Dual, was seriously addressed and advised the forces as from today, they must work together and should abstain out from disheartenment literally caused by hangout senior officers to destabilize the movement by spreading liars against the colleagues and comrades.
General Dual, further warned those commanders specially those with temporary assignments in different mechanisms in Juba, to stop fueling harmful gaseous within our army, since your duties seem to denote developments not to destroy the unity of the movement.
He went on saying that, anyone found again with long nail to spoil or scary the movement, shall be cut off immediately, and also must be held accountable accordingly unless I’m not on duty as a chief of staff of the SPLA(IO) movement.
